Mothers Day Makeover Giveaway Opportunity from Gray Away!


If anyone deserves to be pampered, it’s mom. This Mother’s Day our readers can enter to win a Mommy Makeover by Gray Away! The winner will receive a $50 gift card toward a mommy makeover and an annual supply of Gray Away.


We all have our own stash of beauty secrets to get us through the day, and mom’s are no exceptions, but secrets only get us so far and sometimes we need a makeover. In honor of Mother’s Day and those enterprising women and their creative solutions, Gray Away, the ultimate beauty secret, is inviting women around the nation to nominate other women for a Mommy Makeover by Gray Away. We have teamed up with Gray Away for this fabulous Giveaway!


I received samples to try and although I don’t have very many gray hairs…I did see a few and this products really does make those gray hairs go away and what I like is that it is so easy to use and it does not contain dyes. 


About Gray Away

It’s hard enough to make it to the salon every six weeks, let alone every two weeks when your gray roots start to show up again. Whether you have limited time or a limited budget we want to introduce you to the perfect root touch-up solution – Gray Away by EVERPRO Beauty. We all have our little beauty secrets, and Gray Away should be in every woman’s beauty arsenal.


Did you know that 70 – 80% of women over 40 color their gray hair, but that 75% of women are not using a temporary root touch-up between colorings because they are not satisfied with what is on the market? We see that as an opportunity to share our favorite solution to a problem that affects more than 60 million women.


Why Gray Away?

Gray roots start to show only 2 weeks after hair coloring, Gray Away is an easy and convenient way to spray away gray roots instantly.

It extends the life of hair color saving both time and money.

Gray Away does not contain dyes, it contains mineral derived pigments and it is safe for everyone to use, even pregnant women!

Gray Away is a great value ($12.99 for 1.5 oz.) and is available in drugstores nationwide and online.

Spring into Spring with Skechers!




It’s Spring time and at our house, that usually means time for new shoes for my son. He was so excited when he found out that he received a pair of Boys’ Mega Flex Cerium shoes from Skechers to try out! We received a  pair in Black/Charcoal but they also are available in Black/Red and Black/Silver. One of  my favorite things  is the quality of the shoes. They are really made well and look like they will last for a long time. But, they also fit my son really well. This in itself, is a great thing because he does not find all shoes to fit comfortably. He loves the way these fit!
