Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one that spends her morning shower planning things. I stand in the water and plan my day. I decide what I'll wear that day at work, running errands or hanging out with my husband and 3-year-old daughter. I plan 15 Minute Beauty posts and brainstorm ideas for my Babble posts.
I also love to think about what my plans are for the next 5-10 years. I'm currently 6 months pregnant with daughter number 2, and my husband and I have a vision of what our family life will be like when our girls are a little bit older. We have decided that because we both have somewhat flexible work schedules, we will become the family that travels together. Not all of our plans are grandiose, though we do want to travel to Europe and Australia. Our list of getaways includes short weekend trips around the Midwest such as Petosky, Michigan and across the border to Toronto. Family trips don't need to be every weekend, but we're hoping to get out of Ann Arbor every 3 months or so.
What do my morning shower imaginings have to do with beauty? Skintimate wants women everywhere to wake up each morning with an inspired start, just like me! Skintimate Shave Gel is part of my morning routine, and has been for years. I'm usually a Raspberry Rain girl, but the new Mandarin Burst scent, "a refreshing citrus scent of mandarins, lemons and limes,” is probably going to break me out of that routine. For years, Skintimate has been my favorite shave gel. I've tried other products, but always come back to Skintimate because it is more hydrating and I get a closer shave with the super rich lather.
Skintimate is holding a great contest to celebrate everyone's morning planning and imagining sessions! You can enter the Skintimate Shave Gel Make It Happen contest for a chance to win $5,000 to turn your dreams into a reality, and a year’s supply of Skintimate Shave gel!
