A Girl's Best Friend - DRY SHAMPOO from @Dove

Guys just don't understand...washing our hair is quite a chore!
Not only do we have to wash it, but we have to brush it, detangle it, dry it, straighten it, curl it, etc. EVERY SINGLE TIME.  HAIR is a lot of work!  Especially if you want it to look nice & clean on a daily basis.  
You can only wear a messy bun so much...before people start to wonder about your personal hygiene.  LOL!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
Had I known about DRY SHAMPOO, in my younger mom years...it would have absolutely been my best friend.  NOT JOKING!  I was lucky to wash my hair every two weeks.  I know...it sounds gross, but the reality is that I just couldn't find the time to wash, dry, and straighten it.  I was basically balancing four kids, their school/homework, all their extracurricular activities, and just simply trying to maintain my sanity.  Washing my hair took second priority a lot...or maybe fifth or six priority.  HA! 

Now, as my kids are older, they are reaping the benefits of incredible creations like DRY SHAMPOO.  

Dove sent us their "Refresh Care" DRY SHAMPOO line to try out.  
My oldest daughter LOVES THIS STUFF so much!  
Since she's been cheering this year, she's learned just how important it is to have your hair clean and ready for the day ahead.  Most days, she's TOLD how to fix her hair...so making sure that it's always ready for whatever the coach's choice is for the day...can be a challenge.  Especially since her hair is long, naturally MERMAID wavy, and tends to get greasy after a day or two without washing.
Cue Dove Dry Shampoo products.  
This stuff is amazeballs!  
You simply spray, rub it in, brush it through and style.  It absorbs the oils that always happen when you've gone a bit without washing.  INCREDIBLE!  She is obsessed!  With good reason!  Not that she won't be, or shouldn't be washing her hair on the regular...but now, she can at least "FAKE IT" until she has the time to go through all the steps involved.
Dove has DRY SHAMPOO for all hair types too.  Whether you're wanting to add volume, or you want a dry shampoo that is scented and smells amazing...they have what you're looking for.  
Plus, it doesn't leave white powder or flakes like some dry shampoo's do.  
CLICK HERE to check out the Dove Dry Shampoo Line and maybe this will be your "go to" when you need to "fake it" until you have the time to clean that hair.

Tis' the Season For A Cleaner WHITER Smile With @Colgate #ColgateSmile

Brushing your teeth is something you should be doing twice a day...almost since birth.  
But sometimes just brushing your teeth with normal toothpaste, on a daily basis, doesn't take care of the stains that acquire as coffee consumption, etc. happens.

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company being featured.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
Over the years, I've done many toothpaste reviews/feature.  
So what makes one stand apart from the rest?  
CUE Charcoal...  
It seems this is a new active ingredient that toothpaste companies have found to safely help remove stains from teeth.
This includes a charcoal infused toothbrush (the bristles), which helps in providing a clean gentle brushing.  
The charcoal toothpaste contains micro polishers to help remove stains.  
The best part about this duo, it leaves your mouth feeling fresh, clean and minty too.   Some charcoal toothpastes really don't leave you with that fresh minty breath.  This one does!  Plus, I love that this charcoal toothpaste foams up with my brushing.  Some other's I've used before don't!  Whether or not it makes a difference, it makes me feel like it's actively doing something with the foaming bubbles.

A RED CARPET Premiere with @backdropstore for #MEDALOFHONOR

In case you haven't seen any of the hype or excitement over the newest NETFLIX ORIGINAL show that just released yesterday, just in time for Veteran's Day weekend, let me share with you!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by offering my honest opinion about these products.
MY HUSBAND (proud wife moment), was a writer/co-executive producer on the new show MEDAL OF HONOR.  
It's an incredible 8 episode NETFLIX Original series, featuring 8 MEDAL OF HONOR recipients and their stories of why they earned the military's highest honor.
LAST NIGHT, we had a premiere party at my "in-loves" house, to celebrate this amazing show and so some of our closest friends/family could watch two of the eight episodes on the "BIG SCREEN".  
Our evening was made complete with the custom backdrop that BACKDROP STORE sent us for this party.  
This vinyl 8x8 backdrop was the perfect "PICTURE OPPORTUNITY" for our friends and family to snap photos with my husband on this big night.
We even purchased a red carpet runner & some fun props to give this backdrop the complete RED CARPET look.
OUR NIGHT was amazing and this show IS A MUST WATCH!!  
You can check it out here: 
Are you having a party or event that you need a backdrop for?  
You will not be disappointed!

We'd love to hear what you think and who your favorite of the eight stories is after you check out

@JustBornforBaby - My Niece's First Christmas In Comfort and Style

I can't believe that Christmas is only 49 days.  INSANE!
Christmas is not only my favorite holiday, but also a time for gift giving & celebration.
Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products.
This is my niece's very first Christmas!  
It seems like just yesterday we found out she was going to join our family and now...she's 10 months old and almost ready to not only celebrate her very first Christmas but her first birthday shortly after that as well.  TIME SURE FLIES!!  As an auntie (I love that title), I am always concerned with the things I buy for her.  Be it toys, clothes, etc., I want to make sure that the products are safe, cozy and comfy for her.  
That's why I am in LOVE with Just Born baby products.
Just Born sent us this adorable "My 1st Christmas" blanket sleeper and I simply can't wait to gift this to her...before Christmas of course, so she can be ready on Christmas morning to experience it all for the very first time.  
She's going to look so cute!
This blanket sleeper is incredible.  Super soft and warm, it has a cover over the zipper (so it can't scratch or poke out) which I love.  It has grippers on the bottom of the feet in case she decides to start walking before Christmas (she is already crawling).  
Plus, it's certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX.  LOVE IT!
Just Born has way more products than just this blanket sleeper.  

CLICK HERE to check out their entire collection of amazing things and get a jump start on your Christmas shopping this year.
