Dove® Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™

Last year I got an invite to try Influenster. I have to admit that I'm still not 100% sure if I'm doing what I'm supposed to be with this service but I'm trying. Basically they will send you free products to try in exchange for social media exposure and reviews. I don't get paid anything--I just get the product.

Last month I got to try a new deoderant: Dove® Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™. It's actually pretty good. I know, faint praise, but it's the truth. I'm not really sure how to rave about a deorderant but I'll do my best.

I've been using this for over a month now and my underarms feel really smooth. It's like the skin is softer than it was. And it keeps me dry and the scent is very pleasant. I'm not usually one who works out, so I'm not TOO active. But it's good to know it will work if I decide to switch things up.

So that's my short and sweet review of Dove® Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™. It's a good product and when my sample runs out, I'll definitely buy it again. Hopefully I'll find coupons.

Happy Birthday to Me

Yesterday was my birthday. Having a birthday on a Monday isn't the same as having on on a weekend, though. You get up. You go to work. Not much celebrating. But then having a birthday in your 40s isn't quite the same as when you are a child.  And birthdays wreak havoc on diets, because usually people want to take you out for lunch or dinner.

And I actually requested that I go out to eat last night. I didn't want cake. I wanted a nice meal out and not to have to cook or clean up.  Besides, yesterday was also "No Housework Day" so I figured I should follow that holiday to the letter!

That being said, it was a nice day. My friends on Facebook sent lovely birthday wishes. An old friend called me in the morning.  And my husband and parents gave me birthday gifts (a small shopping spree is in the near future). Plus "Little Man" sent me flowers (pic to come tomorrow).

As you all see, I have NOT blogged regularly in around a year. I'm not sure why. But I decided to start again and this is my new beginning.

This is me and Little Man yesterday morning. He sort of looks like me in this pic, which is rare. I love this kid SO much!!!
