My Amazing (and BLISSFUL) Moment *SPONSORED POST*

Us...A couple of hours before getting engaged.

Us…A couple of hours before getting engaged.

September 15, 2012. I will never forget that date. It is the day my now husband proposed. It was a beautiful late summer afternoon. The temperature was in the mid-80s. Warm but not too hot. He requested I wear a dress. I obliged and rocked some heels for good measure too. We got an early start and headed to one of my favorite NYC chill spots, Fort Tryon Park in upper Manhattan. We took pictures of each other, asked strangers to take pictures of us together, took pics of the gorgeous scenery, flirted, kissed, laughed and just enjoyed each other.

In hindsight, he must have been drowning in anxiety knowing what he was planning to do later in the day.

Once leaving Fort Tryon Park, we drove nearly two hours to the cemetery where my father is buried. My father’s birthday was quickly approaching so my husband suggested we head there for me place flowers on his grave and more importantly “talk” to my dad a bit. Seemed like a great plan to me. My husband had accompanied me there before so I didn’t think much of his suggestion.

About 15 minutes after our arrival, he pulled out a ring box. Inside was an amethyst sparkler — my favorite gemstone. An extra bonus is the ring itself has priceless sentimental value. A few minutes later…He popped the question, I said yes and we were engaged!

My bling!

My bling!

The feeling I had in those few minutes is hard to describe. I was shocked, nervous, excited, overwhelmed with bliss — all at once. The last thing a woman needs to worry about at a time like this is sweating or odor. Yuck! That’s why I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to make sure you’re prepared for these types of moments in your own life. Be it a marriage proposal or the important days that will likely follow including your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette weekend, rehearsal dinner, wedding day (woo hoo!) and even your honeymoon. I mean, who wants to worry about underarm issues during the ultimate baecation?!

      This is such a sweet story! Just reading it put a smile on my face seeing how happy you were on that day. Also I think I will try Dove and reading your testimony.

      @Anon – Thank you!

    3. Dove is all my family uses. Soap and deodorant.
      It keeps my teenage daughters skin clean and motisurized (which helps manage pimples) and I love the confidence that you will not have to worry about sweat scent lingering( after a private summer ) . It’s gentle for us ladies and keeps my husband’s skin smooth

      @Deanna – Thanks much for sharing. Hubby and I enjoy using Dove Body Washes as well.

      I grew up using Dove and was often complimented on my skin. Reducing sweat can save delicate fabrics, I learned too late.
