People often ask me “how do you do it all?”  The truth is, I don’t. Dishes go unwashed, laundry piles up and our family eats dinner out at least once a week.

Life has been crazy lately. Working full time as a legal assistant, running my social media accounts, my blog, dealing with my health, and making time for my family is exhausting. Now add being 6 and a half months pregnant to the mix, you bet, I’m constantly apologizing for late night texts, running late and my forgetfulness.

Though, my “mother’s intuition” has never failed me.

Trying To Find Balance In My Everyday Life – Intuition Effect

I don’t think I will ever truly find “”balance”.  Which is one of the first things, I highly suggest you accept as well. We can’t do it all. I’ve learned that quickly. Instead, learn to cut back.

Most recently, I reduced my hours at work. Not because I wanted too, but I had to listen to my body. Growing a human is tiring.  I have to make sure that the baby inside of me is being taken care of and the body the baby is growing in, is also being loved.

Finding Happiness in Simple Pleasures

Seriously, I have so many things going on and I’m not complaining! I love my life and all the stuff that comes with it. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t find happiness in the simple pleasures. Especially ones that will make my everyday ‘routines” easier.

For example, ordering our groceries online or using my Schick Intuition Razors during my quick five minute mommy showers. Anything that helps amidst the chaos!

Schick Intuition Razor – Island Berry

Schick Intuition Razors has recently launched their new packaging, and also introduced their new Schick® Intuition® Island Berry razor! With açaí berry extract, the Schick® Intuition® Island Berry lets you lather and shave in one, step and its exotic fragrance transports you to a tropical paradise without leaving your shower!

Fun tip:

Store your razor facing up outside of the shower (it will increase the lifespan and also you do not have to worry about the kiddos getting into it!).

What things do you do to find balance in your life? What simple pleasures do you enjoy?

In honour of you, I have teamed up with Schick Intuition Razor to giveaway a limited amount of their new Schick® Intuition® Island Berry razors to a few lucky readers! All you have to do is fill out the form below. I will close the competition as soon as I hit fifty entrants!

    I took the Schick Intuition Razor with me on a recent trip and it was the best. Not having to bring shaving cream with me meant one less thing to pack. It’s great having two things in one with this razor. I also have sensitive skin and that was not an issue with this thanks to the moisturizer in the conditioning solid. Each time I’ve used it, it’s provided a very smooth shave. My legs have been perfect all Summer!

    The Schick Intuition Razor was amazing! I’m a lazy shaver and when I found out Heydy was giving her readers an opportunity to try out a razor that didn’t require any shaving cream, I knew I had to put my name in the hat and hope to get picked to try it out. I absolutely love this razor because it doesn’t need shaving cream, but still provide a very smooth and clean shave without any nicks! I’m also convinced that the ‘bar’ on this razor kept my skin moisturized. I highly recommend this razor to anyone looking for a razor that does it all. This would be the razor I would bring bring on vacation because I don’t need to pack anything else with it! Thank you for this chance!

    After I received this razor I could immediately smell amazing scent that it came in. I was absolutely amazed how close of a shave it provides. I was also very happy I didn’t have to use shaving cream at all. Just nice gliding and clean shave. I did find it a bit harder to use under my arm pits as well as on a bikini area as it is a bit bulky but otherwise I love it and I don’t think I will go back to my other shaver. This shaver provided me with a clean shave and no cuts.
    Thank you

    I recently received 2 Schick Intuition razors in the scent “Island Berry” from Raising Jay and Abel blog. I #gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback on the product, which is also a contest entry. I kept one for myself and gave the other to my 14 year old daughter.

    I always use shaving gel to get a nice, close shave so I was eager to try a Schick Intuition razor to compare. I’ve only used it in the shower so far but it definitely makes a shower shave much quicker & easier as I didn’t have to deal with keeping my leg out of the shower so that the shave lather didn’t rinse down the drain. I was happy with the moisturizing properties of this razor and also really enjoyed the light, feminine scent.

    The one thing I found a bit frustrating is that because of the shape of the moisturizing solid surrounding the razor blades, I had to tip the razor away from my leg to get full coverage of the moisturizer onto my leg and then tip the other way to get a close enough shave with the 4-blade pivoting head. It was still a quicker shower shave than it would have been with my shaving gel though so I will still say it was a decent experience overall.

    In conclusion, I liked this product enough that I will likely purchase it again to have on hand for those quick shower shaves but I will still also use my regular razor and shave gel for bathtub shaves.

    My teen daughter says she LOVES her Schick Intuition and it’s the only razor she will use from now on. And my other 2 teen daughters want one as well so you’ve definitely got a new regular customer here!

    I received this schick intuition razor in the scent “island berry”. I opened the package initially just to smell the product and I thoroughly enjoyed the scent of it. I used the razor right away and let me tell you it magic! There’s no need for any shaving cream with this! It moisturizes your skin as you shave. The shave is smooth and the blades do a great job of removing hair. Afterwards my skin felt so soft and my legs continued to be soft and smooth for days after. I really love these razors and my shaving routine would be so incomplete without one of them in my life! They make shaving a breeze!

    I had the opportunity to test out the New Schick Intuition on Heydys blog. I’m really loving it because I can skip
    the step of applying shaving cream, gel or foam. It allows me to have
    soft, silky skin in no time flat! I will definitely be recommending this
    to friends and family so they too can experience the Intuition Effect.
