It’s amazing how often we go through life just putting up with little things that bug us, or that we don’t really like, just because we think they’re “little” and therefore not worthy of our time and attention. I’m talking about everything from not having the right size round brush to properly do your hair, to driving around in a scroungy car because you don’t want to spend the several hours it takes to get it detailed, to living with a broken drawer in the fridge that makes you want to scream every time you open the darn door to get some milk! (Why yes these are indeed all personal examples!) In the great scheme of things, of COURSE none of those little issues are a “big deal,” right? But they can add up, and sometimes taking a little time or spending a little money to make a small upgrade can really make a BIG difference! To wit: when Spring (FINALLY) rolled around this year, instead of continuing to schlep around the gray leather bag I’d been carrying since what felt like the dawn of time and was seriously starting to hate with a passion, I actually went out and got myself a brand new, super cute leather tote bag that I TOT-ALLY LOVE. (Ha, see what I did there?) It’s just the right size; I love the color scheme (bright and cheery for spring and summer), and it helps me feel just a little bit more put-together, even when I’m just dashing out to the grocery store or to pick my daughter up from school. This “little” upgrade — superficial as it may be — is really improving the quality of my life on a daily basis! Another “upgrade” I made recently is in the shower: thanks to the Schick Hydro Silk razor, which I was invited to review by the Schick team. My usual M-O is to use whatever razor I can find (sorry, Hubby!), and needless to say my legs are not always smooth and sexy as I would like. I do get to try out a lot of different types and brands of razor as an editor, and I can tell you The Hydro Schick is AWESOME, because it actually hydrates your skin as you’re shaving it. I know. High tech! Shaving my legs with this baby is a dream, seriously. It has five “curve-sensing” blades, which work wonders for those tricky spots like the backs of your knees, as well as unique skin guards that smooth down your skin to keep it from getting irritated. I love it — and what a difference a “little” thing like that makes (especially now that it’s shorts and bathing suit season!!!).
NOW, ladies, could YOU use an upgrade in some capacity of your life? I’m thinking … yes! (Seriously who can’t?) Schick is offering a super fun contest where you’ll get a chance to upgrade more than just your razor every single day through the end of June, with fabulous summer prizes in beauty, fashion, fitness and home decor. You’ll also get a chance to win amazing experiences – from a luxurious spa retreat to a $3000 shopping spree – each time you enter to win one of Schick’s daily upgrades.
HOW IT WORKS: Check out the Razorvention™ Revamp suite (on the Schick Hydro Silk Facebook page) and preview the week’s giveaways. When you find an item you’d like to upgrade, “Like” the Facebook page and submit a photo that shows why YOU need that particular “upgrade,” along with a short blurb to make your case. So for example, if the item is a designer bag, you can upload a picture of the ratty one you’ve been carrying around and tell Schick why you need their upgrade!
BONUS: To help your start their Razorvention™ Revamp, you will receive a link to a digital coupon for $4.00 off a Schick Hydro Silk razor or refill after entering for your first daily prize! At the end of each day, Schick Hydro Silk will select a winner.
At the end of each week, there will be an additional Grand Prize sweepstakes. Fans receive one entry into the Grand Prize giveaway for each daily prize they enter to win. You can receive an extra entry into the Grand Prize sweepstakes if you share their daily entry via Facebook, Twitter, Google + or Pinterest. What are you waiting for? You deserve an upgrade! (Your legs agree with me!)
