A couple of weeks ago I came across a contest titled “Benadryl – Canada’s Most Prepared Mom Contest”.  I knew I had to enter it.  I normally don’t enter contests that require people to vote but this one called out to me.  So, I wrote up my 250 words or less entry, hit submit and moved on.

A few days ago I received an email from the lovely folks over at UrbanMoms letting me know that I had been chosen as one of the five finalists.  I was thrilled! So here I am now and I need your help!

The prize for the Benadryl Canada’s Most Prepared Mom Contest is a $10,000 travel voucher.  I don’t need to tell you how awesome that would be!

I’m not going to give you a big sob story here about how much my family needs this.  You already know because you are just like me. You know how much effort goes into raising children, maintaining relationships, working (either as a full time parent or at another job), running a household, etc. – and doing all of this while trying to balance the checkbook.  Being able to win this and give my family a vacation to remember would mean the world to me!!

So, here’s the skinny – voting is quick and painless.  Just follow the link, give my story a read (Shayna) and if you like it just vote.  You can vote once a day, starting today until Friday.

UPDATE – voting has been closed because of some “bugs”.  The contest will start again on Monday July 30th.

Here is the link:

Be Confident This Holiday Season With Depend and a $150 SDM Gift Card

Be Confident This Holiday Season With Depend and a $150 SDM Gift Card

There are so many things I love about this time of year. The Christmas music, the excited kids, finding the perfect gifts for the people on my list and my favorite, the holiday get togethers. I love getting dressed up to go out and celebrate the season with friends and family. To be honest I love any excuse to get dressed up. Putting on a flattering dress, some spectacular heels and spending a little extra time on my hair just makes me feel confident.

I know that not every woman shares my zest for getting all dressed up and going out. For some women, well it’s simply not their thing. We all have different tastes and dresses and heels aren’t for everyone. But I also know that for some confidence comes in to play. Especially if bladder leakage is an issue for them. When’s the last time you had a conversation about bladder leakage? It’s not something that makes into regular conversation is it? Well maybe it’s time to change that. When you stop and realize that 3.3 million Canadians (that’s nearly 10% of the population) experience bladder leakage it might actually make you wonder why we aren’t talking about it more.

As with any topic that comes with stigma, the more we talk about it, and the more we understand it, the better. And I know talking about something so personal can be hard. But the good news is that we are starting to talk about it more and we’ve also come leaps in bound in terms of products to make dealing with bladder leakage easier and less embarrassing.

 

Depend Active Fit

This is what bladder leakage protection looks like now. Are you surprised? Depend is the leader in this area and is committed to enhancing the lives of those with bladder leakage by offering dignified solutions that provide comfort, protections and confidence through innovation and design. The Silhouette Active Fit is one of their latest products. It offers moderate absorbency with a thin design that gives you trusted protection in a thin, comfortable design. Silhouette Active Fit has a lower rise and is available in black or beige to stylishly complement your wardrobe. You can find out more about all of the products the Depend brand has as well as product samples at www.underawareness.com.

So let’s keep talking about this. Let’s make sure women know that if they are dealing with bladder leakage they are not alone. This is not uncommon. Let’s spread the word that there are products, like Silhouette Active Fit, that are far more effective than using maxi pads, and more discreet and comfortable than the “old” bladder leakage products were.  You can feel confident and in control. You can put on that favourite dress that you look at longingly every time you open the closet and wear it with confidence.

Pamper Yourself this Holiday Season (giveaway)

Depend, the makers of Silhouette Active Fit, would like to help you feel your best this holiday season. That’s why they are offering you the chance to win a $150 Shoppers Drug Mart gift card! I’m pretty sure you can do quite a bit of pampering with a prize like that.

Giveaway is open to Canadian residents (excluding Quebec) age 18 and over. Enter using the rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
