Mom: Get Glamorous!

Moms, by show of comments, exactly how many of you watched those new Suave commercials and felt that someone had secretly filmed you? I know I sure did…4 kids and many days I feel desperate to just look like the person I did before bringing them into the world. I know I can’t be alone (and obviously Suave knows this too), so I’m launching a contest called “Mom: Get Glamorous!” I’m sure you can agree, if anyone needs a little Glamour in their lives, its moms!

The Details:

Contest begins: July 6th 2007
