My exciting news…and a Giveaway!

     I have amazing news!  I’ll get to that in a minute but how was that for a nice long summer break from me?  SmileI had a wonderful summer with my kids.  It was great to spend some down time with them before school kicked into high gear again!  And WOW has it kicked into high gear!!  My awesome news is that I have started Student Teaching!  I know that Anjeanette already spilled the beans for me on this one, but I’m so excited about it that I wanted to tell you all about it!  It has always been a dream of mine to be a teacher.  When I became a Mom, I put that dream on hold to be a stay-at-home Mom (which was my number one dream).  I have loved every minute of being home with my kids.  While I have been busy raising my kids, I have also been busy going to school to be a teacher.  There is finally a light at the end of my tunnel.  I am Student Teaching Kindergarten and could not be happier about it!!  Seriously, I have a grin on my face ALL DAY LONG!!  I already have so many stories I could tell you about the amazing kids in my class!  I just adore them all!
     As you can imagine, this is a HUGE change in my life.  I have run a daycare out of my home for the last 10 years, but that is from the comfort of my home, with myself as my boss.  Now I am venturing out into the outside world and it is exciting, intimidating, and overwhelming all at the same time.  I have never had to worry about getting myself and my kids ready for school every day.  For now I am loving that I’ve had to step up my dress attire.  I do have a love of shoes, and to have HAD to buy new ones for work has been quite fun.  I was lucky enough to have an amazing BFF who has given me a work wardrobe (seriously amazing, right?).  To complete the polished look that is now required of this new step in my life, I was lucky enough to get to review COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara.  This could not have come at a better time for me, could it?  As a stay-at-home Mom, and in-home day care provider, I mostly went with the au natural look, and hair pulled up into a ponytail.  It’s a scary thing going into any field right now.  So, I need every advantage that I can get as I’m stepping into a new career.  I think that looking and feeling my best will certainly help me as I am interviewing for my first teaching job soon, and even right now as I am trying to make a great impression during my Student Teaching.
    COVERGIRL LashPerfection Mascara works great.  I went with black because I have really dark (and full) eyebrows so my eyelashes really need to step up to be seen against my eyebrows! HA!  It goes on great, with no clumping (which is a pet-peeve of mine!).  I’m so glad I got to try out this product right now, when it was the perfect time for me!  While we’re on the subject of make-up and looking great, you might want to check out the “Looking Your Best” posts in the Life Well Lived section of BlogHer.com.  There are some great application tips and ideas for switching up your look for fall! 

Want a chance to win a $50 gift card to drugstore.com?  In the comments, tell me about a time when using makeup gave you the added confidence you needed for an important event in your life.

My mother helped me pick out some great makeup for my first middle school dance. I still remember how grown up it made me feel.

Ashley Williams said...

I always feel more confident when I have something on my lips. Not just lipgloss, but having a color on my lips just makes me feel so grown up and confident!

Unknown said...

Congrats on being able to follow your dream. As a former K teacher - there are many things about teaching that I fell in love with. The kids are just amazing!!! Best of luck =)

And Re the make-up. I never wear make-up on a daily basis, but love the way it makes me feel on those interview days!

Nicole said...

I don't know if I've ever used makeup to add confidence (power from within ladies!), but I do love having long,dark sexy lashes to flash "the look" at my super cute hubs!

Robyn said...

I only wear mascara regularly, and tend to only wear it if I'm around people who I don't usually see. So if there is a meeting at work, I'll throw on some mascara before hand, and I feel 10 times better than if I didn't have it.

Thanks for the giveaway. robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

Yay for you, and your new adventure! I am currently staying at home, doing daycare (and homeschooling). Some days I do dream about getting "out" again and using my degree. Most days I love where I am tho :) I wear a very basic makeup every day, can't even remember the last time I did more than mascara!

Jessica said...

One time that really stands out to me as a boost for makeup is when I went to my first job interview (for a teaching position!)...being put together really helped calm my jitters.

I’m not a make up person and usually don’t wear any or have very light make ups on. When I attend my husband’s company dinner, I wanted to look my best for him and I put full make up on and I sure felt great and more confidence meeting his colleges for the first time. We both had a wonderful evening at the event.

Teresa Warner said...

Just a few months ago my husband, who is in the military, and I FINALLY got to go out on a date night. I know to most that doesn't sound like much but we have 7 kids, I run my own business from home and my husband travels all the time for his job. For us, this was quite an event. I got all dolled up and for the first time in a long time felt like a million bucks!

Love the post! So inspiring! Make up gave me the confidence to give one kick-butt speech during my best friends wedding. Just know I look good makes me feel good and it just snowballs from there. :)

I don't wear a lot of makeup.. But , like right now I have on mascara and a bit of powder. That gets me through the day! chefl@swbell.net

Amy Anderson said...

I shy away from a lot of makeup, especially lipstick, but on my wedding day when I was made up to the nines, including lots of lipstick, I never felt more beautiful or confident.

angie lilly said...

I had my makeup professionally done for my wedding and it helped make my day brighter and, since I cried all the way down the isle, I am glad they used waterproof makeup! LOL I knew I would cry a lot during the wedding, so that was one less thing to worry about!

I don't use makeup much for confidence - it's more to dress things up when going out.

After returning to the country from one year in Europe, I had to look for a job. I hadn't worn make up while overseas but I decided to put on my professional face and head with confidence into those job interviews. I was lucky enough to find a temporary placement that lead to a permanent job in my field.
