Surviving the Holidays, with a Little Help from P&G #giveaway

I don't know about you, but it's only December 13, and I am already exhausted! Loving (almost) every minute of the hectic chaos that is my life around the holidays, but exhausted nonetheless. Also, I'm feeling a little ADD and finding myself leaving tasks half-done as something else distracts me, that suddenly seems more interesting or urgent. (Look! Shiny!) And time is flying by so quickly. I can't believe we are less than two weeks away from Christmas Day!

So, I am trying my best to get things accomplished sooner rather than later, so I can be prepared and able to relax and enjoy the special days with family and friends when they arrive.

Some Helpful Tips

Procter and Gamble have some tips to help you enjoy your holidays this year, and they've included some information on nine of their products that can help you survive the holidays in one, sane piece!

Be Beautiful 
Playing hostess is always a bit demanding, especially during the holidays. Between planning a festive feast and decking your halls, remember to take some time to pamper yourself. Try taking a few minutes the night before your big event to decompress in the tub while hydrating your dry winter locks with something quick and easy, such as Pantene Moisture Mask. While your treatment sits you can use your Venus & Olay razor and Satin Care with a Touch of Olay Shave Gel to get touchable and smooth legs. Be sure to protect your luscious locks from simple blow drying to holiday styling with a quick mist of shine, such as Herbal Essences Set Me Up Heat Protection Spray.

Try picking out your outfit the night before. The less you have to think about, the better. For the day of the celebration, keep your makeup easy, breezy and beautiful. Mascara alone can really bring your look from average to amazing. For a long-lasting impact to last from morning to night, try CoverGirl LashBlast 24 Hour Mascara. Finish off your look with your favourite shade of CoverGirl Blast Flipstick, ready to pucker up under the mistletoe.

Be Fresh and Tide-y 
Keep your cool during the holidays and avoid embarrassing moments by being prepared with Secret Outlast deodorant, which gives you 48 hours of odour protection to outlast your day.

Slips and spills are inevitable, especially with holiday dinners, baking and parties, but you can be prepared. Keep Tide to Go in your purse to clean up a stain on your new blouse without starting a load – your guests will never be the wiser.

Be Prepared 
With all of the toys under the tree, many electronic, batteries are often an afterthought. By stocking up on long-lasting batteries, like Duracell, you can avoid tears of frustration and keep the kids playing with their new toys for hours, while the adults get some much-needed grown-up time.
