My mother-in-law has some sayings that have rubbed off on me, and perhaps my favorite of all has to do with how she compliments her granddaughters (she would also use this for grandsons if she had any…but all 7 of her grandchildren are girls!). She might say to Darah, as an example: “Darah I absolutely LOVE your sparkly dress. But do you know what I love even more? The girl wearing it!”
Or she’ll say to Layah, “Layah I LOVE your beautiful smile. But I love EVEN MORE the girl wearing it!”
The message she is sending is that her deepest love is reserved for who the girls ARE, not what they look like. They are beautiful, wonderful and truly loved just because they are themselves. I love that, and I’ve started saying to my daughters, as well. Darah has picked up on it, as she recently told me that my outfit was so lovely, but that the person wearing it was even lovelier. That made my day!
Dove and Walgreens Bring Something Beautiful to Mother’s Day
A brand that I think shares the same sentiments about where beauty comes from is Dove. They have really knocked it out of the park in the last decade or so with their messaging. And in celebration of Mother’s Day (which is this weekend!), Dove and Walgreens have teamed up to bring you a few great promotions.
First, be sure to check out the Mother’s Day sticker app on Facebook. You can embellish a photo that you’d like to give to your mom this year for free! Definitely go play around that that!
Second, if you purchase 2 participating Dove products at Walgreens (which are buy 1 get 1 50% off!), you’ll receive a promo code on your receipt that you can redeem for a FREE 8×10 collage print. As a mom, I can tell you that I’d LOVE to get some new Dove products this Mother’s Day, and I’d LOVE to get a photo collage of my family, as well! This program goes until 5/31/14, so you have a few weeks to check it out (but there’s no time like the present, as this would seriously make a great Mother’s Day gift!).
