Mom's Wish List: Skinnygirl Daily Vitamin Power Pack Giveaway ...

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to do something fun this week on Life with Busy Bea!

With Mother's Day just a few days away, I thought it would be neat to do a "Mom's Wish List" throughout the week and include some ideas for the Dads (and kids) who are still searching for the perfect gift for Mama.

The first product boasts one of every mother's favorite things, efficiency:

Skinnygirl Daily Vitamin Power Packets make taking a multi-vitamin as easy as drinking water; because, well, that's all you have to do to take them! Add a packet to a glass of water (10 oz. is recommended) that you were already going to drink and, voila! Vitamin? Done.

I'll be honest, as a mother to a toddler, taking care of myself is one of the hardest things I've ever done. Gone are the days spent obsessing over which gourmet meal to make or which gym to join. These days, we're lucky if I remember to go grocery shopping. And exercise? Unless chasing the Busy Bea through Target counts as cardio... there's not a lot of time for the gym otherwise. So, convenience products are often times Mommy's Best Friend.

Skinnygirl Daily gets that (Hello, it was founded by a Real Housewife, Bethenny Frankel, who's a new mom herself). And besides giving you an easy way to finally put your health first, they also come in four tasty (of course I tried it!) flavors and health functions!

While I can't speak to the effectiveness of the Hair, Skin and Nails or the Immunity varieties, (because it would take longer than a week to see any results) I can tell you that they were pretty delicious. The flavors I was most anxious to try were the Energy and Alertness and the Stress Relief and Calm.

That's likely because the day that samples arrived, Busy Bea was in rare form and woke up at the crack of dawn. Forgoing my normal cup of coffee, I tried one of the Energy and Alertness packs and got the same benefits without the coffee breath, thanks to the vitamin B12, Guarana and Green Tea extract.

Then, Bea rounded out the day by wiping her tiny lasagna-crusted, dirty hands across my linen living room drapes and bedtime couldn't come soon enough. But, the Stress Relief and Calm did a great job of rounding out my day, naturally easing the way to my own bedtime with Valerian Root and Chamomile.

So, here's the best part... two lucky readers will get the chance to try a thirty day supply of Skinnygirl Daily Vitamin Power Packets!

**Yes, Skinnygirl did send sample products for me to try, however, they are not compensating me ANYHING for this review and giveaway. If I had thought the product tasted like mud, I would let you know. But it doesn't. So, trust me when I say, it's just a yummy, easy way to remember to take your multi-vitamin. Ok?



  1. Well at the moment I'm still doing Stroller Strides twice a week (or at least trying! April was a big bust) but since I'm putting the membership on hold for the summer starting in June I'm going to have to find something new to do to keep me moving... I'm thinking Star Wars Dance on the Kinect with Jessie.. no? LOL

  2. I feel like now, almost 3 years after Jack's birth, I am finally trying to squeeze in some "me" time. I am trying to work out when Jack naps (which is give or take these days), hit up a few yoga classes and month, and now that the weather is getting nice, hike up in these glorious Montana mountains. Oh and sleep it always good. I try very hard to sleep :)

  3. so sorry i missed the contest!
