Day 8: Ultimate Blog Challenge – The Southern Women’s Show
I had the pleasure of spending the day at the Southern Women’s Show in Raleigh, NC. There were two buildings full of vendors that I was able to enjoy. I must have entered every giveaway that was offered. I had a GREAT time being pampered by Abby from Belk using Benefit Cosmetics. I don’t usually wear make up however, when I do I like it to look as natural as possible. I prefer to stick with earth tones, for a more natural look. I went over to The Balancing Act booth and signed up for a chance to spin the wheel and win a prize. As I was approaching the booth I mentioned that I was blogging and tweeting about balancing my life at 2:00 a.m. that morning and Randi (Corporate Accounts Division, Lifetime) happened to be standing right there and pulled me off the line to chat.
Speaking to Randi, I explained I’m a mother of four children ages ranging from teen to toddler, I’m married, work full time, run a small business out of my home, blog on a regular basis and am heavily involved in social media. She asked if I’d mind speaking with Danielle Knox (Host The Balancing Act) on camera and I said… sure, why not! I went off to network and do some work while I awaited my interview. I was called shortly and went to meet Randi who introduced me to Danielle and we jumped right in. I told Danielle everything I explained to Randi and what a typical day is for me. I also mentioned that balancing my life is a work in progress and I take it one day at a time.
We had a little bit of fun with my interview allowing me to enjoy some temporary pampering and have a couple of “all about me” moments. We went over to the Ponyo booth and my hair was pulled up into a updo which was different for me since my hair is usually worn down. I then got my face retouched and we talked some more before ending. I know many great women were interviewed and there’s no guarantee my interview will be chosen to air but, I sure enjoyed the opportunity to chat with Danielle Knox and I had a GREAT time. Tune into The Balancing Act Weekdays at 7 a.m. on Lifetime. I look forward to balancing my life! Take a look at some recap pictures below.
