What makes you feel beautiful?
When I think back on lessons I learned from the women in my family about beauty, they were less about actual beauty tips, and more about making sure you take care of yourself. My grandmother would tell me that “the happiest girls are the prettiest girls” and to make sure I spent a little bit of time every day making sure I did something to make myself happy.
I would love to say that I have listened to my grandmother’s advice, but it is sometimes easier said than done. Like most women I often find that I “put myself last” in my list of daily priorities. Between keeping the house tidy, getting the children to and from their activities, keeping the hubby happy, managing the household… I often fall in to bed at night completely exhausted and realize I have spent little to no time on myself.
Do not get me wrong – this is not a complaint in the least – I absolutely love every moment. In fact I think it is often in those moments – when I crawl in to bed after a long day of taking care of my family – that I feel most beautiful. It may sound crazy, but even in my old pajamas and my hair in a ponytail, the happiness I feel every night makes me feel amazing because I know I get to get up tomorrow and do it all over again.
Vera Wang wants you to take time for yourself to feel beautiful every day, and her newest fragrance – The Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia fragrance will empower you to do just that.
As the newest member of the Embrace Collection, Marigold and Gardenia is a dreamy fruity and floral fragrance available at your local Kohl’s store.
Studies show that 75% of emotions are triggered by smell, which is linked to pleasure, happiness, and memory. The light, sweet fragrance of Vera Wang Marigold and Gardenia will leave you feeling soft and fresh and confident to take on whatever your day may bring.
If you’re like me and get caught up providing for everyone else in you life, don’t forget that one of the most important things we can do in order to take care of others, is to take care of ourselves. Just spending a few minutes each day on ourselves can help us to be better moms, wives, and friends.
