How about a whiter smile?
Well, I can help you with that and I am smiling big with a white smile as I am typing this.
And one lucky person is going to get their white smile for free - if they enter below to win their own Smile Brilliant! LED Teeth Whitening System (a $69.95 Value!!!)
But, don't worry if you are not the lucky winner. As Smile Brilliant is offering this LED system at a discount on their website right now. It only costs $39.95. So this system is ideal for those of us on a budget but want to see results.
Have you ever tried those teeth whitening stripes at the store? I have head they work, but this LED Teeth Whitening System is suppose to be far more effective. The reason this system has a 22% carbamide peroxide tooth whitening gel and a high strength LED light with can accelerate the tooth whitening process.
So, lets think about the long term value of Smile Brilliant! How much does the average tooth whitening strips cost. With my online research it appears they cost at least $35 for one box. And then the thought of how many boxes you will need. And now onto Smile Brilliant! LED Teeth Whitening System right now it is only $39.95 for the entire system with a ton of applications and it works quicker!
It only takes 4 steps to use your LED Professional Teeth Whitening System for the first time...
First remove the back of the battery shield...which is in the picture above and the battery shield has been removed. Take off the clear plastic disk from underneath the batteries and put the batteries back in place. Then screw back on the shield. Now with a simple click on the on button the unit will glow.
Second get the whitening gel pen. The long silver colored cap comes off to expose a soft bristled brush. Turn the opposite end of the pen to get the gel flowing into the bristles. It took over 40 twists to get my gel to come out.
Third apply the gel by brushing it onto your teeth. The gel is nice and thick and tastes minty. It is easy to paint on and stays in place. The only trick is to keep your lips and saliva for touch your teeth while you apply it. I will admit it is complicated at first but gets easier with each application. I had to twist the bottom of the pen to get more gel after brushing around two to three of my teeth. Then put on the lip guard. It is very soft and flexible. So it is comfortable to wear.
The Fourth and Final Step....Turn on the LED light system and insert the clear part of the light into your mouth so the light sits against your lip guard. Now get comfortable as it is recommended to keep this in your mouth for 20 to 45 minutes...and you can continue the whitening process by continuing to wear your lip guard for an additional 1 to 2 hours. I have sensitive teeth so I only used it for 20 minutes with the LED light.
But if you are like me Smile Brilliant also offers a Desensitizing Gel to help with those issues.
I have applied the system to mine teeth twice and do notice a color difference. My teeth do not look fake, but nice and clean and white. I will admit they are sensitive but the results are amazing.
So enter for your chance to be the lucky winner. Good Luck and Happy New Year!

Oh, it was two days before Christmas and all through the house everyone could hear Momma exclaiming..."Not enough hours in the day to get all the gifts wrapped!!!"
Yes...that Mamma is me and all I keep wondering is where am I going to find the energy to get 40 gifts wrapped after my boys go to bed?
But, then I remembered an amazing health and fitness product I was sent.
And let me tell you, these bite size gems of energy taste like a chocolate treat with out all the guilt but all the energy.
Energems come in three fabulous flavors...Peanut Butter, Mint and Chocolate.
As a chocolate addict the chocolate flavor is my favorite. I enjoy that it has a coffee undertone. I like to think of them as my big kid chocolate fix. Each serving is 3 of these large Energems. But you can enjoy up to 2 boxes of Energems a day.
Three Energems = one cup of coffee. I like that fact as I can control easily how much caffeine I am consuming. A serving of Energems doesn't leave me jittery, but I do feel a slight boost of energy. Each individual Energems have only 15 calories and less than one gram of fat. I love that!! And Energems also incorporate B-Vitamins in each.
I think the thing I love most about Energems is the easy of taking them with me. They do not take up much room and I can get a boost of energy easily. They are much easy to pack in a bag or purse compared to other energy drinks and shots.
So I say Welcome Christmas and bring on all the presents that need to be wrapped.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

And quick for all you dogs out there reading this...get your owners attention right now!!! Yes....That means BARK AS LOUD AS YOU CAN!!!
Have your owner enter below for a chance to win this great Gravy.
But, it is not any gravy...it is Groovy Gravy
Look...Look....it is amazingly delicious right over your dog food. We heard it is the cats meow...but we didn't share.
My Mom says that Groovy Gravy incorporates ultra-pure, highly absorbable, health-promoting Omega-3s into this delicious gravy. But I don't really care...it just is plain 'o bowl licking good. My favorite Groovy flavor is the "Power of Sweet Potato" and my little brother's fav is "Paw Lickin' Chicken". But really I will devour any of it.
My Mom also likes that each Groovy Gravy comes in portion controlled foil stick packs with an easy tear edge. Now I just have to get her to buy the 30-count carton. And then maybe she can just give us some Groovy Gravy for snack time. YUMMMM.
We still can't believe something so tasty can possibly promote healthy and shiny coats, healthy cardiovascular function and a healthy immune system. Plus it is Made in the USA!! It is even Certified! One last thing Groovy Gravy has a charity partner which I think is great....the Onxy and Breezy Foundation that benefits the welfare of animals.
I had better quick get off the computer before she finds me! But dont' forget to check out Groovy Gravy on Facebook and Twitter for great discounts, contests and event news. It is the cats meow!!!
Boy, I hope Santa fills my Stockin' with Groovy Gravy this year.
Enter below for your chance to win.

2 cups granulated white sugar
1 cup white syrup (corn syrup)
1 scant cup water
2 cups raw peanuts
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 Tablespoons of unsalted butter - I cut the butter up in cubes to help it incorporate quicker.
1 teaspoon salt
Boil first 3 ingredients over medium heat to soft ball stage.
Cook until light brown (hard crack), stirring constantly.
Remove from heat and continue to stir while adding add baking soda, salt and butter.
|Do not over stir the baking soda/salt and butter in, otherwise you will knock all of the air bubbles out of the brittle and it will be hard.|
And don't forget during this busy Holiday Season to take time and fill out this survey for a chance to win a $200 gift card.
When I find great information that I feel can benefit many others...I have the need to pass it along. I hope everyone can learn something useful when it comes to their hearing or other loved ones. Happy Holidays.
Being able to hear is about more than just your ears. Your hearing affects virtually every aspect of your life, from your ability to work to the relationships that you have with others. Not being able to hear properly can have detrimental effects on your health that could result in dementia, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. How good your hearing is can affect the way that your brain functions. Being able to hear everything and pick up on all audible signals can drastically affect the quality of your life.
According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, more than 36 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss at some point or another during their lives. However, fortunately, most people’s hearing problems can be addressed with a hearing aid, such as Miracle Ear. Hearing aids improve the reception of sounds and ideas, leading to better understanding. Plus, hearing aids today are so advanced that they make it so that most people can hear in noisy, crowded areas.
If you suspect that you might suffer from hearing loss, it is best to go ahead and get tested so that you can catch it early on. If you catch hearing problems early on and address them, you can prevent yourself from developing unfavorable conditions and help yourself stay socially active. Additionally, early intervention can help train your ears when they are at their best point to prepare them for effective future treatment, leading to better hearing. Additionally, getting a hearing checkup is free at many facilities and is an easy and painless process.
There are three major types of hearing loss, including sensorineural hearing loss, conductive hearing loss and mixed hearing loss. Sensorineural hearing loss is caused by an inner ear problem and the pathway between the ear and the brain. This is the most common type of hearing loss and also the type of hearing loss that is most treated with hearing aids. Causes of this type of hearing loss include age, noise exposure and infection. Conductive hearing loss is usually a decrease of sound that is attributed to an obstruction in the outer or the inner ear. Causes of this type of hearing loss include wax in the ear canal, perforation in the ear drum and fluid in the inner ear. This type of hearing loss is most commonly treated with surgery or some other type of medical intervention. Then, there is mixed hearing loss, which is a combination of both the sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss. Although the conductive part may be treated, the sensorineural part is permanent and simply requires a hearing aid.
The severity of an individual’s hearing loss can range from mild or moderate to severe or profound. Seeking treatment for hearing loss as soon as it is discovered is most effective in keeping the condition from worsening or affecting other areas of your life.
Ways that you can help prevent hearing loss from occurring in the first place include staying away from harmful noise, avoiding putting objects in your ears and stopping smoking. Smoking constricts your blood vessels, which could put you at a higher risk for developing hearing loss. Hearing loss does not only affect older people, and it is not always detected by physicians since physicians don’t always screen the patients for hearing loss. Therefore, you should take the steps to get your hearing checked periodically to help address any hearing issues you develop early on.

With a house full of boys; let’s just say LEGO’s are a toy staple! They are everywhere (including under foot sometimes…ouch) and I love the creativity that it brings out in them.
So when I found out LEGO has created a free online experience called Minifigure Family we had to check in out together as a family. It is amazing and allows you to create your own customized LEGO Minifigure holiday card. And after creating your personalized card you can easily share it with anyone via social media. What a great and fun way to spread your love of the Holidays.
We immediately fell in love with the LEGO experience and all it bright colors. We as a family began our LEGO Minifigure card together. And I challenge you to do the same with your family this joyous season.
We started by selecting our generic LEGO figures which even includes a dog and cat option. Of course we named and selected our two adults, three children and two dogs. After that was complete we went back and customized each figure to our liking. There were so many different selections to choose including skin tone, facial expressions and outfits including tops and bottoms. After we created the perfect LEGO people and pets we selected our scene for our Holiday card. It was challenging to have everyone agree which background was the best. What fun!
After then we were able to customize our Holiday message. We all agreed on Merry Christmas. Then I was able to share our LEGO greeting card via social media. And you can even leave on your customized names and message or take one or both off of your Minifigure card before sharing.
So what do you think of our finished LEGO Minifigure Christmas card? Now get busy LEGO fans…create and share your own card today.

Why not take advantage of your children's holiday gifts this year? Give the gift that will keep on giving; by educating your young child's mind.
Remember that educational toys do not have to be boring and mundane!! They can be fun and created so your child doesn't feel like they are learning. They can feel like they are playing and having a great time.
One of the toys I would highly recommend this year is called Hot Dots Let's Master (and keep reading for your change to win one Hot Dots Let's Master of your choice!!!). This educational product is available in different versions to help meet your child's needs from Pre-K up to 3rd Grade. And Educational Insights.com also offers these Hot Dots Let's Master focusing on Math or Reading.
I was or should I say my son was lucky enough to try out both the Math and Reading Hot Dots Let's Master Sets for Kindergarten.
First of all the squeals of delight upon checking out his new toys was priceless. He was so excited and couldn't went to try his new "computer books". That is what he called them and I totally understand why. As each of these Hot Dots Let's Master Sets came with two books and an interactive pen.
Look at this fun and child friendly pen (take 2 AAA batteries).
It is child friendly as it is bigger and easy to hold, plus the friendly Talking and Teaching Dog Ace that is part of the pen lights up along with the comments he makes to encourage your child to learn.
I am thrilled that each set comes with 100 lessons! Wow! What a great find and 15 of the 100 lessons are meant to challenge your child and get them ready for the next step...their next grade in school.
I feel Hot Dots Let's Master sets are a great value considering how much they are able to teach a child. You can purchase your own Hot Dots through Educationalinsights.com.
It was great to watch my youngest son stay on task and work on his Letter Recognition, Reading Readiness, Phonics, Sight Words and Punctuation & Grammar...Thanks to Hot Dots. This learning system pushed him to try harder to get the positive reward from the interactive pen.
|This style of pen is used with the upper levels of these Hot Dots sets.|
The books are easy to use and sturdy. The pen is used to touch the corresponding black dot with the answer your child thinks is correct. The pen will let him or her know if they selected the correct answer.
My son is finding the money a fun learning experience with the Hot Dots Let's Master Math set. Yes, I said money. I couldn't believe that this was covered but what a great concept for him to understand along with...Counting & Numbers, Patterns, Time, Shapes/Geometry, Fractions, Measurement and Math Facts
I have now signed up for the free Educational Insights Newsletter and you can too. This way I don't miss out on any great deals and offers. Now that we have experienced Hot Dots Let's Master I can't wait to see what other educational products we are going to try out. Oh, another outlet I am like is Educational Insights on Facebook. I love there page and learning about other products they carry.
So who wants to win a Hot Dots Let's Master set of their own? And better yet if you win...you can pick the grade level and it you want math or reading. Thank you Educational Insights for this great opportunity to review and now giveaway Hot Dots Let's Master!
