I Don’t Know How She Does It *~* Mani/Pedi/Parafin Wax Giveaway

This weekend, Sept 16th, Sarah Jessica Parker stars in a new movie, I Don't Know How She Does It.  This is definitely a feeling I can relate too!  While I do not work out of the home, I am still a very busy lady.  I have 3 children, ages 17, 14, and 5 (on Monday!) Not only am I busy helping to create "All About Me" posters for preschool, we are also filling out college applications, and running back and forth to gymnastics.  I babysit 3 other children through out the week, ages 1, 4 and 5!  I have a hubby who works out of town most weeks, so I am responsible for all the day to day house upkeep, and I work on keeping up this blog. 

There are some days I really wonder how I did it all, or worry about the things that slipped through the cracks.  I try hard to keep it all organized, and I live by my calendar.  Every now and then I get a few moments to myself, but those are few and far between.  I try to make the most of those times, take in a quiet cup of coffee in peace, enjoy some kid free shopping, get my hair done.  Too often mom's are so busy taking care of life and their families, they forget to take time for themselves.   

During waking hours, the majority of moms said they never finish their to-do lists, and as a result they take some pretty creative steps to get it all done. In fact, moms will:

-          Stuff clutter into closets or dirty dishes into the oven before guests come over: 66%

-          Serve their children fast food more than once per week: 58%

-          Give in to a child’s temper tantrum in order to save time: 47%

-          Let children dress in mismatched clothes to get to school/work on time: 38%

Regardless of how busy they are, all moms make their children a priority. Close to 60 percent of working mothers and 76 percent of stay-at-home mothers find the time to tuck their kids in every night. Forty-nine percent of working mothers attend school events, as do 56 percent of stay at home mothers. Where women skimp: “me time.” Thirty-five percent of the moms polled find time for themselves once a month and their preferred way to spend that time is pampering themselves with manicures, pedicures, facials and other spa treatments.

Eversave is proud to sponsor Back To Beauty which  is intended to remind all women that they deserve to treat themselves to a little pampering every so often.

With that in mind, Eversave would  like to offer one of my readers a bundle of Saves for manicures, pedicures and scrubs, so they can treat themselves and other moms or friends to some pampering!

In support of all moms who “do it all,” Eversave is sponsoring a special Back-to-Beauty promotion on September 14, featuring spa-centric deals in all of its local markets so moms everywhere can save money and enjoy some much needed “me time”.
