Can’t Slow Down This Holiday Season


* Disclosure: This is a compensated partnership with Vicks. All opinions are 100% my own.


I’m constantly on the go … and I mean it. When I look back on my month and see all the things I managed to squeeze in, I almost can’t believe it. But that’s how I roll. That’s how we function. That’s my new normal. Three kids and a full time job will run a woman ragged. I cannot afford to slow down.

But then life smacks you right in the face and throws you off your feet.





Boom. Out for the count. My friends make fun of me. They say I get a “man cold” when I get sick because when I get sick … I get SICK. There’s no functioning for me on the first day. My entire body collapses and I just shut down. Sometimes, I cave into that because I know I need the rest. But honestly – sometimes – that’s just not an option. Whether I need DayQuil to help me power through all of my to-dos for the day, or NyQuil to help me get the sleep I need to feel better tomorrow, Vicks provides a very simple solution. Plain and simple – Vicks exists to bring back the joy of being you (even during cold season)!


The holidays are HERE. I mean, my kids wake up and they are giving me the official count down. Two weeks ago, I didn’t have a present purchased, a card written out (and I lost my Christmas label list – can we talk about that for a minute. EEK!), and we barely had all our decorations in order. Just when I was gearing up to take full control of December, I got really sick. REALLY SICK. I lost my voice. I became lightheaded and my nose became 100% clogged. Disaster. With a full plate of personal and professional duties upon me, I knew I couldn’t slow down. So, I turned to DayQuil and NyQuil to get me through the storm. And thank goodness for them!



Personally, I like the liquid form, but my husband loves the LiquidCaps. So, we carry both in the house. It doesn’t matter which way you take your medicine – the end result will be the same. RELIEF.
