Is Vanity Fair's #LiftTOUR Bus Stopping In Your Town?

I'm not always able to make it to all the events I'm invited to, so I've enlisted the help of a guest writer (also the mother of my 3 year old's BFF), Erica R. to check out local events when I'm tied up.

Erica had the chance to attend Vanity Fair's #LiftTOUR in Frisco, Texas recently and agreed to chat about her experience here at McKinney Mommas.  

Take it away, Erica! 
McKinney Mommas Vanity Fair Dress For Success


I recently had the opportunity to attend Vanity Fair’s nation-wide bus tour “Bras Across America:Vanity Fair Lingerie LiftTOUR” blogger preview event when it made a stop at Stonebriar Mall. 

The initiative encourages women to come in for a bra fitting while having the opportunity to donate a bra to Dress for Success, and give a lift to a woman who needs a little support.


Bra Fitting Donation Tour Bus

Vanity Fair welcomed us with a delicious spread of food while we listened to representatives from Vanity Fair and Dress for Success Dallas explain the promotion. 

The partnership of the two entities is a product of Vanity Fair’s recent Women Who Do™ initiative – a powerfully uplifting campaign dedicated to praising and celebrating the everyday triumphs of women everywhere while highlighting the brand’s long-standing commitment to producing quality, luxurious lingerie. 

Dress for Success is an organization dedicated to promoting the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, career development tools and network support to help women thrive in work and in life. Dress for Success operates in more than 130 cities and 16 countries, and has helped more than 775,000 women work towards self-sufficiency since its inception in 1997.

Dress For Success Event

 
Next we were invited to the Vanity Fair LiftTOUR bus for a bra fitting. Yikes!

Did you know that you should have a bra fitting once every year? I didn’t, and I wasn’t wearing the correct size. That’s not a huge surprise since my last fitting was two kids ago! 

Vanity Fair sent me home with a nice, new, properly fitted bra. I took advantage of the chance to write an inspirational message for another woman, which was tied to a brand new bra that Vanity Fair will donate to Dress for Success.

The tour has left the Dallas area, but the tour is still going strong. So encourage your friends and family around the country to attend the event in their hometown.

Each woman that goes in for a fitting at a LiftTOUR event will receive a coupon towards their new bra purchase, and will be able to write their own note of encouragement and donate a bra on Vanity Fair’s behalf to Dress for Success.


               I support Women Who Do™, do you?

Baring The Piggies With Freeman Beauty #BAREFOOTbliss


Eeek!

I'm gonna bare it all. 

My most private of parts. 

The thing I've been teased about my whole life....................


MY TOES!!!
(it's true, they've been called eggrolls, sausages, munchkin feet, my whole life, sniff, sniff)




































I love the summertime, getting to wear sandals, hanging out shoeless in the parks and sand = #BAREFOOTbliss, but UGG, my feet sure suffer the consequences.

Honestly, after having three kids in the past four years, the last thing I take time to take care of is my feet. I simply don't have the time.

Well, today that changed. 

I splurged and took a whole 4 minutes, while my kids were playing in the backyard to give my toes a little TLC with two NEW Freeman Beauty Barefoot Spa Professional products. 


#1. Barefoot Exfoliating Polish

- Not too harsh, with a nice blue, sparkling hue. I've started keeping this tube of polish in my shower for a quick rub down of my calloused feet, but what's great is that it works on the whole body as an exfoliant as well! 

#2. Barefoot Moisturizing Massage Cream

- Mmm, now this feels like luxury. After scrubbing down my toes I lathered on some of this massage cream, and it's amazingly not greasy but felt like it was moisturizing my thirsty feet. 


See, it didn't take more than 4 minutes, and all while I was watching my kiddos play in the yard. 

Now, who can say you don't have time for a little #BAREFOOTbliss TOE TLC!

My favorite part was the spa fragrance, was mellow and not too flowery or overpowering, very relaxing, which is exactly what I needed today.

Now, cross your fingers....or ahem...toes...that this post, which I'm entering in a Freeman brand challenge #contest gets me in the top 25 to win a prize!

No More Boring Milk For Kids - Cow Wow Organic Milk


It's back to school time, which means packing LUNCHES!

Ugg, right?

It doesn't have to be so boring, when you find fun products to throw in the lunch box for the kiddos, like Cow Wow Organic Milk!


































As you can clearly see, my kiddos dug this stuff.

My 2 year old who is still struggling with not being able to nurse, since I'm breastfeeding baby #3, is really enjoying her Chocolate Chip Cathy as an alternative to whining and asking to nurse multiple times per day. 

When she asks to nurse, I offered "How about some Cow's Milk from the fridge?" and so far it's been working! 


Cow Wow is organic, naturally flavored low-fat milk that tastes pretty much exactly like the milk that's left in your bowl after you've enjoyed your favorite breakfast cereal! 

FLAVORS
  • Fruity Trudy - tastes like you've just enjoyed some fruit loops
  • Chocolate Chip Cathy - think cocoa crisp
  • Cinny Minny - my favorite - like cinnamon toast crunch or life cereal

...just 6 grams of added sugar isn't so bad and with only 3-5 ingredients (all of which I can pronounce, ahem) I can easily feel good letting my kids indulge a bit in some flavored milk!
