My 3 Steps to Shine Inside and Out + GIVEAWAY

I’m proud to partner with CVS/pharmacy for this “radiance – Shine Inside and Out” campaign. I am being sponsored to help lead this campaign, but all opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at or with the appropriate manufacturers.

I am getting a bit of a head start on making some changes for the new year.  While I have had many successes and plenty of happiness throughout 2014, there are still aspects of my life I am looking to improve.  As a full-time work-at-home mother of two and a woman who is **this close** to turning 40, my days are full of responsibility and it has taken a toll on my sanity some days.  I can look in the mirror and know that I am getting older for sure.  I have also felt some changes on the inside as well.  It’s harder to stay focused, alert, and happy every waking moment.  In younger days, I think I was able to push through any hard times without a thought.  At this stage in life, I am looking to make a conscious effort to shine both inside and out.  I’ve decided to take these 3 steps to a better me in 2015:

STEP 1 – Do more to look my best every day.  I have gotten very used to working at home and not making much of an effort with my clothing, hair and makeup.  Starting now, I’ll be ditching the “pajamas all day” look.  It won’t kill me to take an hour to do my hair and makeup and put on a nice outfit every day.  I know for a fact looking good on the outside DOES affect my mood.

get creative

STEP 2 – Start doing all of those creative projects that I have been wanting to do.  My DIY Pinterest board is pretty full of ideas!  I am gearing up to learn metal stamping so I can make some jewelry.  I just bought a few supplies and a book on the subject, right now I’m waiting on my stamps to arrive.  I can’t wait to make my first necklace!  I’ve also got a few other ideas like repurposing some old jars, making candles, and a whole list of things.  Being creative has always been a part of me and I’m ready to branch out.  I know it will help bring me some joy and a new outlet to relieve stress.

#CVSradiance PLATINUM Supplements

STEP 3 – Add supplements to my routine that are specifically targeted to my needs.  I have recently added three radiance PLATINUM supplements to my daily routine (available only at CVS/pharmacy).  This line from CVS/pharmacy is 100% preservative free with 44 vitamins and supplements to choose from, including some that are suitable for vegans.


Here’s what I’m starting with:  The Hair, Skin & Nails supplement will aid me in with STEP 1 doing more to look my best.  I’m excited to see how this dietary supplement of biotin and other B vitamins will help the look and feel of my hair, skin, and nails.  The Evening Primrose Oil is packed with Omega 6 and is said to help with PMS, something else that has increased quite a bit in the last year.  I look forward to it helping with these symptoms.   The Melatonin is said to help you feel more refreshed after sleep if you deal with occasional sleeplessness.  This past year, stress has gotten the best of me and I do wake in the morning feeling like I did not sleep.  If this can help, I’ll be ever-grateful.

I’m happy that I can recognize that there are changes that need to be made in my life.  I’m thrilled to be getting started and incorporating those changes!  Be sure to check out CVS/pharmacy and the radiance PLATINUM line if you are looking to add vitamins and supplements to your life.  With the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare Rewards Program you can save and earn ExtraBucks Rewards (free CVS money) every time you shop!  You earn 2% back on nearly all purchases at the store.  I’ve been using the ExtraCare program for as long as I can remember and find it to be extremely rewarding.
