FX’s Better Things: Motherhood in a Nutshell + Giveaway

maxresdefaultPIN IT!

If you haven’t heard by now, FX has just released a new show called Better Things. Its a realistic show about a single mom trying to raise three daughters in hectic Los Angeles, CA. Better Things depicts motherhood for what it really is. Emotionally and physically draining but an incredibly rewarding experience you would never change for the world.

Created by Louis CK and Pamela Adlon, together they have created a look into the hectic journey of motherhood. From smoking pot to unrelenting snuggles in bed, there are so many missed moments that tv shows neglect when depicting motherhood. Yes, shows and movies will show kids having a party and the mess they make but do they show who’s really cleaning everything up? Nope.

Better ThingsWatching the trailer alone gave me giggles as I sympathized with Sam’s pillow shopping preview. I think her test on the pillow is a great example of motherhood and totally something I would do! When you have a kiddo who comes in your room and refuses to leave, good pillows are a must. I personally have watched the first two episodesPIN IT! and can’t wait to see what’s to come. Oh and speaking of, you can watch the first two episodes free with FX’s one hour preview option if you don’t have cable!

Being part of this wonderful campaign I was sent a motherhood swag bag and it had some awesome goodies in it! If you follow me on SnapChat you already got to see everything that’s inside. What’s even better is that I have a second swag bag to giveaway to one of you awesome readers! You will get everything I received down below. Let me tell you the Ray-Ban’s are adorbs!
