I get by with a little help from my friends. (+ a GIVEAWAY!)

Like peanut butter and jelly, some things just work for every woman thus restoring her confidence on even the most challenging days. My peanut butter and jelly happens to be SPANX + Clinique cosmetics. Two brands that help me get out the door feeling my best.

Now I haven't always been an avid SPANX user. Not for any particular reason either. Simply put: I've gotten older and sometimes I just want the added support and smooth lines when I'm wearing that special dress. 

I was excited to learn of SPANX launching their Power Series. Long gone are the days of full body get-ups leaving you uncomfortable, sweaty and just overall irritated. The new SPANX POWER SERIES consists of shorter versions of the infamous classics the brand is recognized for.

My personal favorite is the POWER SHORTY. I wear it under skirts, body hugging maxis and under all my cocktail dresses. Let's just say it's a win-win given that my husband was tired of seeing me yank at my undergarments. So classy, right? 

The coolest collaboration is currently underway, too! SPANX and Clinique have launched Beauty Besties, a pairing of everyday essentials for girls on the go exclusively at Nordstrom through the end of May.

That means you have TWO more weeks to get out there and get your complimentary consultation along with some of your favorite Clinique products. For me, that's just about any lip product they put out including their lipsticks down to their popular Chubby Sticks.

Girlfriends unite! Let's banish those frumpy lines and raise a glass to more confidence.

Take it from me - a girl who likes to have her peanut butter and jelly and eat it, too!
