The View

I have been an avid fan of the fun, feisty ladies of "The View" for over 5 years. I have always adored Barbara Walters, and her co-hosts offer conversation and topics for deeper consideration. I have to TiVo since I'm working during the broadcast, but each weekly show gives me something to laugh about and more to think about!

Last Friday's edition was no exception (Friday, 2/19) -
unfortunately the media spectacle of Tiger Wood's public apology - let's call it a "Oh That Dog! Fest", tied in well with The View's "2nd Annual Mutt Show"...putting the start about 30 minutes behind schedule. Since the show is taped, I'm certain there will be some great conversation in today's show (Monday, 2/22) about his assertions and future as a sports icon.

I'm so excited to share that I have been selected to serve as an ambassador for "The View"! Also, there is a great contest to enter: The View sweepstakes that’s currently being run on our Mom Central website. One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive a trip to New York City to watch a taping of The View! The sweepstakes is open until February 28th. Here is a link to our sign-up survey for this sweepstakes: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22A5X7KF2CZ

Kissable Lips in Time for Valentine's Day!

Winter time can do some brutal things to my lips....not the most "kissable" texture during the time of year that it really counts - Valentine's Day!

Between the cooler temperatures, harsh winds, and outdoor blusteries, my poor lips can take a real lickin'...I'm so pleased to find that Neosporin, a trusted friend in my family's healthcare, now has just the right products to help.

Neosporin went beyond understanding how to temporarily relieve dry lips. They took time to study exactly what makes them dry – and to discover what “essentials” must be
restored to make and keep lips looking healthy. The result is uniquely formulated
NEOSPORIN® LIP HEALTH™ day and night formulas. Both are clinically proven
to give you visibly healthier lips in just 3 days.

I took the 3-Day Challenge myself and discovered significant improvement in the condition of my lips. Nothing is more bothersome to me than dry, peeling, or chapping lips. The tightness and discomfort really gets to me and then I start to lick or rub them which only worsens the condition! Both products worked exceptionally well, but I was most impressed with the Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy. I used this periodically throughout my day, and noticed less flaking and soothing comfort by the second day of the challenge! Hubs even noticed!
