Get Optic White Teeth in 3 Days

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #OpticSmiles #CollectiveBias

This Saturday my big brother will be getting married. He will be tying the knot with the love of his life. I am really excited and proud of him.  I am also a little nervous. I only found out two weeks ago and I have little time to figure things out. You know, the important stuff like what I'm going to wear (I'll still not sure shhh) how am I going to do my hair, and how to get my teeth picture ready. I decided I wanted to give Colgate® Express White a try and trust that it would get the job done in time and all I would have left to do was worry about my outfit, shoes and purse I would be wearing. Let's not forget my husband, two boys and baby girl I have to make sure look good as well.

Getting your teeth picture perfect is not the easiest thing in the world to do. You brush, you brush and you brush some more in hope of one day having perfect teeth. With Colgate® Express White Toothpaste you will have whiter teeth in just 3 days, just by brushing. Colgate® Express White Toothpaste also has 2 times more of the professionally recommended whitening ingredient

Check out my results.

I am now set and ready to go to my brothers wedding. When it comes to my teeth that is. I now get to go shopping for the perfect dress to go with my picture perfect Colgate® Smile. If you are interested here is over 550 stores that will have a roaming demo on 2/28/15 and will be giving out $1 off coupons on Express White Toothpaste. Who doesn't love to save a buck? You can find your Walmart store HERE

Do you have a special event coming up and could use the help of Colgate® Express White Toothpaste? If so leave me a comment and let me know what's going on in your life.

6 Cheap Ways for Families to Spend the Weekend

Every time the weekend rolls around, everyone is always looking for something fun and exciting to do. Everybody wants a way to release the stress of the week and experience things they do not get to on a normal week day. This may seem fine for many families, but some families are not lucky enough to have this luxury. There are a lot more families today who are looking to save money and spend wisely on the weekends.
There are a lot of things that families can do on the weekends to serve their needs for fun and entertainment without spending a lot of money. Every family can use these ideas to make their weekend great without breaking the bank. Families can try a new idea each week to find out what their favorite ideas are. Here are six cheap ways for families to spend the weekend. 
Start a new TV series
Many families like to watch TV, but run out of time during the week because of all their other obligations. Families can catch up with their favorite shows or start a new TV series with packages from Direct TV. This is a great way to experience new pop culture and have a cozy moment with family on the couch. 
Write some short stories
Letting the creativity flow is another great way to spend the weekend. Every family will have different creative strengths and weaknesses, but there is always a creative outlet that will spark interest in a family. One idea is to write some short storiestogether, maybe even publishing them in a local newspaper. 
Build a backyard water park
Attending a water park can be very fun, but also very expensive for a family. Instead of spending the money on a real water park, families can create one in their own back yard. A few hoses and some plastic tarp is all a family needs to create a weekend filled with outdoor fun. In the wintertime, families can do the same with the snow by creating a sledding course. 
Play a board game
It is hard to go wrong with a board game. Everyone in the family can get excited about at least one board game. Families can create teams and have a competition or work together to solve the games puzzle. 
Have a picnic at the park
Most local communities have a few parks that families can use for free whenever they please. Families can make a day out of it by bringing a picnic to their favorite park. Kids can play in the park and parents can enjoy the great weather and beautiful view. This is a fun way to actively spend the weekend. 
Visit a local lake
A little time by the water is some of the best R and R for most people. Families can enjoy a lot of free activities by the water. Fishing, boating, swimming and ice skating in the winter are just a few great ideas.

My Favorite Jacket Of All Time.

Huge thanks to eShakti for sponsoring this post. 

I live in Texas.  I love it here. Our weather is real finicky. It can be fairly cold in the morning and really hot in the afternoon. Around winter time the weather tends to stay a bit more constant with it actually staying cold all day. I am limited on how many jackets or coats I want hanging in my closet because I don't have the crazy winters most people do. Not to say that I don't love my outerwear it's just not needed as much as I would like.

I do have to say that February has to be one of the coldest months (to me) out of the year. Except this year. We USUALLY always get one or two good freezes and maybe a small snow fall that never sticks to the ground giving me the best opportunity to pull out this beauty. 

I got this amazing Jacket/coat from eShakti. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I'm loving this jacket. I love the pattern and the length and the classic fashion feel of it. I love that when I went to order the jacket that it was made to fit my body type. My length, arm length and my height. 

Being a tall girl buying clothes is not always the easiest. I now have an amazing place that I can go that will make the clothes fit me no matter my size. My sleeves will no longer be too short. My dresses, no longer too short. I'm just in love. What more can I say? 

Feel free to stop by eShakti and check out how amazing they are for yourself. I'm sure you will love every second of what you find.

I'm Making the #LumiaSwitch

I am so excited to be sharing this amazing opportunity to participate in the Windows Phone #LumiaSwitch Challenge. For the next 6 weeks or so I will be posting here about how much I love my phone and various challenges that are given to me. I've had the phone for about a week now and have been playing with it ever since.

I have always been a huge fan of Microsoft computers and have always preferred them over Mac but... When it comes to my phone I have always had an iPhone. Don't ask me why I didn't make the #switch sooner, I just didn't! But the time has come to make the #LumiaSwitch and I'm doing so with a great group of women that will make up my team (Tori, Morena, Stephanie and Melanie).

My first thought when receiving my phone was how pretty the colors were. On the screen of course. I was so excited and couldn't wait to sync up my Surface and Lumia. As shown in the picture above they go perfect together. They are meant for each other. One thing I was sad about until yesterday is that I thought I lost all my contacts and pictures from my iPhone. Not fun when switching right? But the Lumia made it extremely easy with the Switch-Easy App. OH MY did my life become that much easier. Making me love my Lumia that much easier. 

But wait.....

The Camera.... How could I have lived without this phone camera before? Now, I'm still learning and figuring out how to post my photos the way they are suppose to be... So just give me time on that one. 

I can't wait to be sharing with your over the next 6 weeks how my #LumiaSwitch is going. 

Check out how my team members are using the Lumia themselves. #SATXLUMIA
