For Life's Everyday Performances, POND'S!

A big thank you to POND'S for sponsoring today's post.

As boring as our lives may be lets say compared to a New York City Rockette, it really isn't all that much when you think about it. Everyday when we head out the door, it's a chance to do things different to do something amazing and something wonderful. When you look at life this way, you will see how even the most mundane tasks, can become an exciting performance. That's why when I head out that door, it will always be with a bold lip and my face done.

Yes, you know I am all about the bold lip and the power of makeup. See I don't see makeup as a mask or as a way to cover up something ugly, I see makeup as a tool to help us show of the best of us. With makeup we can take our best features and enhance them, we can also take our not so best features and make them better. And what makeup really gives us is confidence. I am a much more confident woman when I know that I look good, when I know that I am putting the best me forward. Confidence is a beautiful thing, and if you need a little bit of makeup to give you confidence, then heck why not?

Super important when it comes to feeling good and looking good is our skin. I was terrible in my teens and early twenties when it came to caring for my precious skin. It was not until I hit my 30's and the first wrinkles set in that I realized I had done a really bad job caring for it. But like they say, it's never too late to do anything and in these past years I made my skin a priority. I am 41 and I am a grandmother, but I don't want people to say that I look like a grandma.

And even though I make my skin a priority, I am super simple about it. I don't like having to spend a lot of money or having to spend a lot of time either. Simple is best for me. I have been using POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser and POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes as part of my skincare routine and there is nothing simpler. Even my high end, super-duper coverage foundation comes right off when I use this fabulous combo. POND'S is a great way to prep for the day or to end my day with fabulously clean skin. 

Life is filled with everyday performances and opportunities for us to shine. By taking care of our skin and having the best canvas possible, we can always put our best face forward. This holiday season, I am super stoked to do so many new things with my girls and with all of the grandbabies, it's going to be a ton of fun! In anticipation of the 2014 holiday season, POND’S, the classic beauty brand trusted by generations of loyal followers, is teaming up with the Rockettes, the legendary precision dance company, to encourage women to kick off an effective, Rockettes-approved skincare routine and they are giving one person a chance to go behind the curtain at Radio City Music Hall this December! One lucky winner will receive a two-day Manhattan getaway to meet the Rockettes, and attend the Radio City Christmas Spectacular this December. 

Enter the POND’S + The Rockettes NYC Holiday Getaway Sweepstakes and good luck. A trip to NYC to see the Rockettes would be an amazing performance!
