My husband and I are big football fans and like many, have certain traditions that we follow.


Each year, when the season ends and a team has won the Big Game, we begin counting down the days until preseason begins and we get to watch out favorite team take the field once more.

During the downtime, we also read article after article, keeping up on the latest news on our favorite team. Many times I even call my husband to let him know what newest piece of info I read. It’s almost become a competition to see who read a piece of news first.

Yes, you could say we are a tad obsessed with the sport, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Football is a way for us to bond and spend time with each other. We look forward to the quality time we get to spend with each other, hollering at the bad calls made and laughing at some of the antics of our favorite player.

Before the day of the Big Game arrives, we sit down and plan out what food I’m going to make. Our meal plan usually includes our favorite finger foods. (Last year I made fried chicken, and boy was it DELICIOUS!)

Like we do on every other game day, we make sure we’re fresh and clean. We use our favorite products to get ready.

My husband ALWAYS makes sure to have a freshly shaved face. If it’s not, he complains about how itchy is.


The Gillette Fusion ProGlide, which has the thinnest and finest razor blades yet, provides a close shave due to its FlexBall Technology. It also contains a precision trimmer on the back for edging and an enhanced Lubastrip for a smooth glide while shaving.

Part of our game day traditions also include a good teeth cleaning before and after the game.


The Oral B Vitality not only brushes our teeth, it also has MicroPulse bristles  that clean between your teeth, helping to eliminate the need for flossing.


(Cool side note: The Oral B Vitality also has a built-in two-minute timer to make sure you brush your teeth for the recommended time.

This year our good friends are throwing a huge party even though our guys didn’t make it to the very end this year. Knowing our friends, this party is going to be a new tradition for us each year, which is great. No matter whether our team wins or loses, we get to spend time with some of the people closest to us.

And since we’re going to a party, you can bet I will be sporting COVERGIRL’s LashBlast Mascara which gives me 100% more volume and features their biggest brush yet.


If you’re looking for a mascara that offers no clumping or gives you volume AND length, check out COVERGIRL’s Clump Crusher or Fusion Mascara, both of which are available in regular or water resistant.Products copy_small
