LISTERINE Heroic Habits

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

I’ve found that the best way to make permanent healthy changes into your lifestyle is to make it a part of a routine. Its been a few weeks since we started our new oral health routine with LISTERINE products and so far, it has been a reasonably good success. My son is the type of kid who is leery of new things, so with him, it had to be a slow transition into this new routine.


We first started having him use the LISTERINE Smart Rinse each morning before school. We make a game out of it, making funny faces in the mirror as he swishes the rinse around in his mouth. In the evening before bedtime he has also used LISTERINE floss , which is something his dentist recommended because children often get small cavities (that turn into BIG cavities) when they don’t regularly floss in between their teeth. The LISTERINE floss is easy for him to use himself with a little bit of direction from us. We actually floss together, making it a floss “party” of sorts. And since he a boy, he enjoys gross things, so we compare the nastiness that LISTERINE floss gets out from between our teeth. Anything to make it fun for him so he will enjoy it and allowing it to become a healthy habit. LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN floss is shred resistant and glides easily between even the tightest of spaces between teeth. Its also very gentle on the gums, which is important when using it on kids. The patented MICRO-GROOVES removes twice as much plaque than another leading brand. I’ve also got into the habit of sticking the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS into my purse to keep my breath fresh and clean feeling.


In addition to our family using LISTERINE products to have Heroic Habits, we have also been more mindful of what we are eating. Having meals and snacks that have more vegetables was something I have been wanting to incorporate for a while. Sneaking veggies into meals has been easier than I thought. My food processor has been my best friend lately to whip up fresh salsa and to puree veggies to put into spaghetti sauce. Instead of the normal bedtime snack of some crackers, my dentist suggested we give my son a cheese stick as it is better for his teeth and won’t leave a sticky carbohydrate residue like crackers would. Its the small things you don’t think of, but they are equally important to be a Healthy Habit Hero!

Earn Miranda Lambert Platinum Points from CRYSTAL LIGHT at Walmart

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

I love getting a little bonus when I buy my favorite products. I also love country music. How do those relate you ask? Its because CRYSTAL LIGHT has partnered with Miranda Lambert to offer Platinum Points, a rewards program for CRYSTAL LIGHT purchases.

Banner Eight

If you are a Miranda Lambert fan you may have noticed that she has slimmed down with healthy lifestyle changes. CRYSTAL LIGHT and Miranda Lambert are a perfect pair to promote a healthier lifestyle and they are here to reward you with the Platinum Points program. All you have to do is sign up for the Platinum Points program and then shop for your favorite CRYSTAL LIGHT at Walmart. When you sign up, be sure to use the promo code mirandaic to snag 30 bonus points to get you started. To earn points, you simply have to log into your Platinum Points account and upload a snapshot of your Walmart receipt and voila you are on your way to earning rewards like song downloads, t-shirts or even a signed Miranda Lambert guitar!


I recently made a trip to Walmart and picked up a few different flavors of CRYSTAL LIGHT. Walmart has a large selection of flavors, but I opted to get my favorite, Lemon Iced Tea and to try a new (to me) flavor, Raspberry Lemonade. If you want to branch out a bit from traditional flavors, CRYSTAL LIGHT offers other unique combos such as Peach Mango and Strawberry Orange Banana. For me, CRYSTAL LIGHT is a good way to get my water intake while enjoying a tasty beverage. You can also create mocktails with CRYSTAL LIGHT, one of my favorites being the “Whiny Baby” which my husband and I used to make when our son was an infant and after a longgggggg day of dealing with non-stop crying, I’d whip up our signature cocktail using CRYSTAL LIGHT Pink Lemonade, lemon-lime soda and a shot of flavored vodka. Quick, easy and delicious!

Jif To Go Dippers

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

On Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays we drive the 25 minutes to karate classes, which just happens to be right before dinner time.  You know that time of day when kids complain that they are STARVING and must eat something now!  To fuel up before karate class its often a challenge as we don’t have the time between when the kid gets off the bus to when we have to leave to make an elaborate snack.  Lately, our go-to snack has been grabbing an apple and a Jif To Go Dipper.  The nutritious peanut butter and pretzel crisps help keep the kid fueled for karate and less irritable because he isn’t ravenous after class either.


The convenience of the Jif To Go Dippers cannot be beat.  Simply grab them and go.  This all in one and portable snack is complete with pretzel thins and peanut butter.  When you are ready for snack, peel back the cover on the peanut and you are ready for dipping those yummy pretzel crisps in creamy peanut butter or the chocolate silk peanut butter spread.  My son’s favorite is the creamy peanut butter spread, while I love the chocolate silk because you get the salty and sweet combination and its almost like having dessert as a snack. Deliciousness on the go is what I call it!
Jif To Go Dippers are found at grocery stores nationwide. I found them in the same aisle as the peanut butter at my local Shaw’s store.  Be sure to check out Jif on Instagram to view the entries for their #GetGoing photo contest. Also, follow them on Facebook and Twitter for the very latest on products and recipes.

Feel Beautiful with Dove Advanced Care and Dollar General

As I get a bit older, my definition of beauty has evolved.  Beauty once was having perfectly done hair and make up along with a nice outfit. I felt like I needed to be so put together so others wouldn’t think less of me.  That mindset is tiring and impossible at the same time.  Now, I want to feel beautiful mostly for myself.  You know the old saying that when you look great, you feel great and its true.  Real beauty isn’t being flawless and Dove embraces this idea.


What helps me feel my best is using the right products and this week at Dollar General, we can score some great deals on Dove products that helps with this. Now through October 19th you can save $2 instantly when you spend $7 on any Dove or Vaseline products at Dollar General.  A good bargain is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?

Also, be sure to join us for the #DGFeelBeautifulFor Twitter party that is tonight at 8 pm EST and you might win a $100 Dollar General gift card!
