I’m gonna help you Get Gorgeous (and win a lil swag)

Congrats to our winner Julie Jones!

Two of my favorite women on this planet; Vera Sweeney and Audrey McClellan hosted their second Getting Gorgeous bash… which featured a consortium of companies committed to helping us women feel good about ourselves from the inside out. Here I am with Victoria Pericon and my little girl as we were literally surrounded by companies looking to glam and pamper us. The reason these events are so well-attended, is because Vera and Audrey are two real women- they’re moms who are insanely busy- yet they also don’t want to sacrifice their physical and emotional selves at the expense of their mommy hoods. So through their company they’ve created these events- designed to help us moms remember that we need to nurture our bodies and our souls, if we truly want to be the best parents and professionals we possibly can. I for one was so excited to be able to meet some companies whose products I am already enthused about as well as newer companies- of who I am now a fan.

Some of my favorite takeaways…

Degree Women their new products are REVOLUTIONARY… and for a girl who sweats a lot their motionSENSE™  “microencapsulated fragrance technology”  releases a burst of additional protection when your body gives the signal that it needs help! … a NECESSITY…

Weight Watchers online diet… no more having to trudge to meetings in the dead of winter ( I know I’ll use any excuse  NOT to participate in a diet plan) you can be a part of their supportive com munity and shed pounds- without ever leaving the comfort of your couch ( I SOO like this!)

Tide to go which are these little pens you can pop in your purse and if you drop some jelly on your shirt ( cause I am ALWAYS feeding my son PB&J wherever we go) you can whip out this pen and eradicate the stain- in literally two shakes of a lamb’s tail.  My daughter takes it to school with her and she and her friends are always using these Tide to go pens to get their lunch stains out of their white uniform shirts!

Miracle Body Jeans. What can I say about this company- they’ve made a 4 foot 11 inch chick like me- with big pulks (Yiddish word for thighs) feel like I can wear a pair of jeans and actually look SEXY!! They are truly MIRACULOUS in their cut, fabric and design and I wear them NIGHT and day.  And they now have these incredibly form flattering bathing suits aka their miracle swim suits– which of course I will be wearing come summertime!

Hanes Comfort– their stuff is just so yummy and wearable– their ankle socks are like warm slippers- and I wear their sports bras under all my wanna be like a Beverly Hills Housewife  blouses… definitely worth checking out.

Of course there were so many other companies in attendance- BJ’s Wholesale , Shopafrolic, Goody Hair, Flip Out Sandals, Simply Orange Juice – all so worth a gander on your part. And the best part of all- Vera and Audrey gave us these scrumptious gift bags with oh so many goodies- I felt bad not sharing at least one gift with all of you…

    One of my favorite places to go is Margarita's! I love their Coco Locos… thanks so much for the chance!

  2. Amber says

    I love going to Quince at the Homestead for a romantic dinner because the service is amazing and the food is even more incredible – plus, they change their menu often and use only the freshest ingredients!

  3. Theresa Jenkins says

    favorite place to go for a romantic dinner : this is terrible to say but I have no idea…since I took early retirerment to be grandma nanny to our 4 grandkids I started cooking again and it's been like a game to find a few hours for an evening meal without kids

  4. Denise B. says

    We don't do romantic dinners. We really don't need them. Most of the time, we place an order by phone and pick up food. I don't find eating in a restaurant with other people around romantic.

  5. Sharon Harmon says

    Our favorite place is a fancy German restaurant called the Edelweiss. It has German decor inside and out, you can eat by the big fireplace and by candle light! 😉

  6. Suzanne K says

    Our favorite is a small Mexican restaurant with fabulous food! Quiet, out of the way… and they participate with restaurant.com!

  7. Jenn S. says

    I like the Melting Pot because the lights are dimmed and they have cozy secluded booths for couples. The food is great too!

  8. MelissaO says

    My husband only wants to eat in Mexican restaurants when we go out (he's Mexican and often homesick for food) so the atmosphere isn't super romantic, but it is enjoyable. There are a couple close by and I think a few are on restaurant.com

    The best place to go around town for a romantic night out is Chelsea's Kitchen because they have an outdoor terrace that is lit well with festive lights and other atmospheric goodies. Good food, too 😉

    romance? what's that? a single mom of a teen, going to school full time and working full time? no time for romance! I do love to have a little sit down dinner w/ my kid, where someone serves me and cleans up after us tho! our favorite is a cool burger joint not too far from home.

  14. Michelle W says

    I'm not really a romantic, more of a pizza kind of girl, but I would like to try the Melting Pot, my sister says it is so good.

    My favorite place for a romantic dinner is a little sushi place where hubby and I went on our first date. We have such great memories there, and the sushi is amazing!

  16. JudyZ says

    My husband and I have a favorite Italian restaurant we go to for romantic dinners because the booths are private and the lights are dim

  17. Stephanie Adkins says

    My favorite romantic restaurant is RedStone because the food is great and the atmosphere is really amourous.

  18. Vicki D. says

    For a romantic dinner, I love McCormick and Schmick. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is out of this world delicious!

  19. Chris N says

    It's not the traditional romantic spot, but date night for us is usually On the Border. This time of year it is nice to sit out on the patio, have some good food and a really good margarita and reconnect with my husband.
