November is for Giving {A Giveaway That Is!}

Hi Friends and Happy Monday!

Since it's November...and ThanksGIVING is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to feature a couple giveaways!  First up is adorable mama to three cuter than cute kiddos {seriously, check out her blog}.  Please give her a warm welcome!  :)

Hi! My name is Mel & I blog at The Larson Lingo.
I am so excited about doing a giveaway on Natasha's blog!
She lives in one of my favorite places in the world, Lake Tahoe.
And, her Ethan and my Luke are just a month apart.
A little bit about me...I'm a California girl, born & raised!
I love Jesus, wine, coffee, photography & throwing parties.
Target is my Happy Place.
I am a part time 7th grade math teacher and have been teaching for 10 years.
I just recently became an Independant Consultant for Rodan + Fields.
I have been married to Kevin for 11 years and we have 3 sweet kids.
 Kate is almost 7, Claire is 5 and our baby boy Luke is 15 months old.

Growing up in California, I was in the sun. A lot.
Especially playing soccer my entire childhood. Most of the time I wore sunscreen, but sometimes I didn't. When I got to college and played soccer at University of Colorado, we had soccer practice everyday from 1-4. Peak sun hours. Sometimes I wore sunscreen, sometimes I didn't.
My skin took a beating, for sure.
 Fast forward to when I turned 30 a few years ago.
My body wasn't feeling older, but my skin was.
I had to get some pre-cancerous skin cancer spots removed from my face.
I should have taken better care of my skin when I was younger...
All those times without sunscreen were taking it's toll on my skin.

I never really had a "good" skin care routine.
In high school/college/20's I would just use cheap face wash/moisturizer.
Once I hit 30, I realized I needed to take better care of my skin.
Sun damage & fine lines were starting to rear their ugly heads.
I tried out several products, but it wasn't until last year that I found a product I was happy with.
It was 14 months ago when I started Rodan + Fields.
I had just given birth to Luke and I decided that my skin was worth was the skin I was going to have the rest of my life and I better start taking care of it. Plus, I had the "mask of pregnancy" with him. It needed to go!
I started using the Redefine products and couldn't believe how much better my skin looked and felt after just 1 month. I continued to use Redefine twice a day for a year.
This past August, after I stopped nursing Luke, I started using Reverse in the morning and Redefine at night.
I am so glad I started using Rodan + Fields. I can't say enough about their products.
My skin has never felt or looked better! 

Rodan and Fields is a skin care line from the doctors who created ProActiv.  What they did for the acne market with ProActiv, they are doing again with the Anti-Aging market.  Along with an Anti-Aging line they also have products for erasing sun damage and dark spots, soothing sensitive skin, as well as products for acne.

Check out Before & After photos from this video:
Because I love Rodan + Fields so much, I want to give away one of my favorite products, 
 This eye cream combines powerful peptides to minimize the appearance of crow’s-feet, helps reduce the appearance of both puffiness and dark under eye circles while special optical diffusers noticeably brighten the eye area. Ophthalmologist tested, this formula is ideal for maintaining the delicate skin around the eyes.

I love the products so much, I decided to become an independent consultant for them. 
What I love about being a R + F consultant is that I believe in the products, there are NO parties, NO stocking inventory or delivery.  Everything is ordered from the your website! 
And, it is a great way to earn extra money each month, something you can do while your kids nap or at night! It doesn't take away from family time.
If you are interested in becoming a consultant & joining my team, send me an email:

There are some great holiday specials going on right now and it's a good time to take advantage of them, especially if you become a PC Perks member (Preferred Customer)
