Congrats to our winner Jeri C.
*Thank you Avon for sponsoring this post!*
Face it, gone are the days when your child would look at you with tears welling up in her eyes and plead for you to come along on her playdate, and you'd stay, even though you had hoped to spend those two precious hours getting a much-needed mani-pedi. And your suggestion that the two of you spend a few hours painting together would be a met by nothing less than a resounding yes! Yet now that she's a tween, her desire to spend time with you has pretty much dried up. In fact, you're lucky if your questions about how her day at school went illicit more than a two-word reply. Unfortunately, spending quality time with her parents is not high on her list of priorities. Your little sweet pea, who once clamored for your constant hovering presence, is clearly asserting her independence. Although you want to encourage her to be her own person, you long for the good old days, when it was just you and her clasping hands and chatting away in your fragile cocoon of togetherness… (sigh!)
But what if you could continue your Mommy/child playdates with your older kids and foster a new found sense of camaraderie participating in activities that will satisfy your child's more mature sensibilities and help you retain that close-knit bond you once shared. I know it might sound impossible but I'm here to let you in on the secret to achieving it. For me and my daughter- it's been bonding over skincare and beauty, or more specifically AVON !! We are both kind of gaga for their line of pretty much EVERYTHING from fragrances to moisturizing cream! And my latest beauty haul with all my favorite picks from a recent Avon event I attended to check out their Holiday Collection for 2016 -has been a big hit with my daughter and has inspired some wonderful bonding time for the two us! So if you are ready to get in some bonding with the girl in your life and learn about some of Avon's new beauty products and their wonderful campaigns to help women be the BEAUTY BOSSES OF THEIR LIVES keep reading. Oh yeah I'm also giving away some major goodies to one reader!
