As our children grow into teenagers, our minds start to wonder about what it’s going to be like once they move out of the house. When Angeline was little I always envisioned her going off to college, or the military – setting out on her own and starting her life. Once our children leave the house we tend to think that life will slow down now that we’re no longer running them from A to B, ensuring that homework is done and lunches are packed. Some days, when they’re little, we secretly can’t wait for that day…
Now that Angeline is engaged and preparing to leave the proverbial nest to start her adult life, I’ve realized that I’m now busier than ever. In many ways, her independence means my independence. Instead of becoming settled, I’ve spread my wings! I’m always on the go, constantly jetting off on a trip for work…or pleasure!
Even when I’m not traveling it’s rare to find me at home. You’re more likely to find me out with friends, out to lunch or at the beach. Being on the go means it’s easy for my life to get a little unbalanced, especially my diet and beauty routines.
And of course, being the busy professional blogger that I am, there are so many times when I am stuck at my desk from sunup to sundown, catching up on blog work, editing photos…and we all know what time it is right now: TAX TIME. Being self-employed is wonderful, but when tax season rolls around, it usually entails entire days of sitting at my desk compiling 1099s and sorting through receipts and adding up my business expenses.
Doing my taxes makes me want to snack. A LOT.
Balance bars make a smart snack option to keep in my purse or travel bag. Balance recently introduced 4 new delicious flavors. They’re only 200 calories or less, contain 5-7 grams of protein and 5-6 grams of fiber, depending on flavor. They even come in mini bars, perfect for that “I’m sort of hungry, but not really starving” snack attack. The Balance Bars mini bars are only 95 calories, with 2.5 – 3.5 grams of protein and fiber, depending on flavor. Oh, and the original Cookie Dough and Yogurt Honey Peanut are so tasty, they’re just perfect for when you want a sweet snack but don’t really want to open that package of cookies…It’s nice not needing to choose between nutrition and taste am I right?
Like Balance, Birchbox is a product that lets busy women like me indulge with a monthly subscription box containing four to five samples of makeup, or other beauty related products.
As if that isn’t fun enough, right now, Balance is treating their fans with a limited-time offer to win a yearlong subscription to Birchbox!
I just received my very first Birchbox and I was so pleased with the goodies it contained! I think they’ve won me over…it’s so much fun to receive a box of fun beauty products in the mail each month, and such a great way to try new products that you may not have known about before!
Beginning in February, Balance packaging will feature a “golden ticket” with a unique code to enter online at Balance.com/BirchBoxWinner for a chance to win. Twenty lucky fans will win the year-long subscription to Birchbox. You can pick up Balance bars at Walmart, Kroger, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and via Amazon Dash.
