48-Hour Giveaway: Makeup Eraser Kit (5 Winners)

Makeup Eraser Giveaway

If you are currently spending money on makeup remover products, you’ll definitely want to pay attention to this giveaway. The Makeup Eraser is a product that removes your makeup with just water.

Each cloth is 17×7. One site cleans and removes makeup. The other side exfoliates. The cloth locks in the makeup you remove so that it doesn’t transfer back to your face.

You only need to use water and just rinse it out and hang it to dry. Then, just throw it in the laundry once a week.

Makeup Eraser Giveaway

I was excited to try out this product because all makeup remover products break my face out (the joys of sensitive skin!). So for years, I’ve just washed my face with water and then cleansed it with Mary Kay Timewise 3-in-1 Cleanser.

I tried out the Makeup Eraser hoping it would give me a deeper clean and maybe be simpler. Unfortunately, it didn’t work as well as I’d hoped. I followed the directions to a tee, but found I really had to scrub hard to remove my eye makeup (maybe it doesn’t work as well with Mary Kay makeup?) and scrubbing so hard to remove it it ended up irritating my sensitive skin.

That said, if you don’t have sensitive skin like me and you are spending money every month on makeup removal products, this would definitely be something to check out. I watched YouTube videos from other fashion bloggers and they gave great reviews. It could fairly quickly pay for itself and then end up saving you money each month if by buying and using this, you didn’t need to buy makeup remover products again!

How do you stop feeling guilty about taking time to read?

How do you not feel guilty about taking time to read?

I have been reading your blog since 2009 and have recently been loving your Periscopes!! I do have a question that I hope you can answer in a blog post or on a Periscope.

How do you not feel guilty about sitting down to read? During nap (I have two girls – 2.5 and 1.5), I usually have homemaking chores to do but if I have extra time during nap, I always feel guilty sitting down to read! It always feels like there’s something else I should be doing. Any advice? -Emily

This is such a great question, Emily! I think so many moms and women struggle with making time to do things that will replenish and refresh and refuel them.

Why? Because it can feel like there are so many, many more important things you should be doing with your time.

How do you not feel guilty about taking time to read?

You Are No Good to Anyone When You’re Completely Exhausted

But here’s the thing: you are good to no one if you are exhausted. Read that sentence again and really think about it.

You are unable to be a good wife, a good mom, a good co-worker, a good friend — or whatever hats you wear right now — if you are feeling run over for dead.

When you are completely drained, completely tapped out, and completely burned out, you will not have anything worth giving to others.
How do you not feel guilty about taking time to read?

Yes, You Need to Take Time for YOU

You need to be pouring into yourself if you want to be able to pour out to others. You can’t just give and give and give without replenishing the supply and expect that you’ll be able to keep going and going and going. That’s like assuming that you can live without food or drive your car without refilling it with fuel.

We try to do it as a person, though, don’t we? And it’s usually in the name of “not having time” or that “there are so many other more important things to do”.

But if you never make time for replenishing your supply, you’ll soon have to make time because you’ll be so tapped out that you’ll be forced to.

I’ve found that I’m so much healthier, happier, and energetic when I take time to refuel my tank. And I’m also able to invest much more in my marriage and my kids, as a result.

How do you not feel guilty about taking the time to read?

How to Get Over the Guilt

When I remind myself about how important replenishing my supply is, it helps me to feel less guilt over making time for reading and other things that refuel me. But I’ve found other practical ideas that help, in addition to just giving myself a good pep talk:

#1. Budget a Time Block For It

When you make taking time to read part of your daily list of to-do’s, you’re automatically giving yourself permission to make it a priority.

#2. Make It a Reward

Tell yourself that once you’ve cleaned the bathroom, or filed those papers, or finished that work project, or folded and put away the laundry, you get to set the timer for 15 or 30 minutes and enjoy a book.

#3. Remind Yourself of the Impact

Reading is one of the best ways to grow as a person, to challenge ourselves, to grow, and to stimulate our minds. Keep this in mind when you’re trying to talk yourself out of taking time to read.

#4. Find an Accountability Partner

Ask someone to hold you accountable for taking time to refuel and refresh yourself. Maybe they can text or email you a few times per week to check in and make sure you’re making it a priority.

#5. Get Creative!

Look for creative ways to fit reading into your life. I’m always on the hunt for nooks and crannies where I can fit more reading in. Check out my posts here on how I find more time to read.

How do you not feel guilty about taking time to read?

What other advice and ideas do the rest of you have for Emily? I’d love to hear!

P.S. Watch my video from this morning on How to Make Time for You Without Feeling Guilty.
