Refresh Your Oral Routine With NEW Colgate Enamel Health #ColgateEnamelHealth

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product and an ice cream gift card courtesy of Colgate to help facilitate this review. All opinions stated are my own.

The warmer months are now nipping at our heels, and for me, warmer months offer some of the better things in life. Sandals, swimsuits, beaches and ice cream! Those are all definitely a few of my favorite things. Especially the ice cream! What I don't like though, is the oral pain I sometimes get from those tasty, cold treats. I don't think I realized how good I had it when I was a kid and could just bite right into a triple dip cone. Now, I think I'm lucky if I can get through a scoop without suffering hours of pain on my teeth and gums afterwards. Now that spring is here, I am in full spring clean mode, and I realize it's time to give my medicine cabinet an overhaul. I am tossing out my old toothpastes and replacing them with Colgate Enamel Health

Colgate toothpaste

Last year, Colgate launched a new line of toothpaste products to help replenish natural calcium for stronger, healthy enamel called Colgate Enamel Health. This year they have expanded the product line with the newest toothpaste variant- Colgate Enamel Health Multi-Protection Toothpaste. Not only does it replenish calcium to weak spots, it gently polishes for healthy enamel.

Here is a great example of how the new Colgate Enamel Health Toothpastes work. Using a piece of chalk to demonstrate plaque and germs, I rubbed it across a textured tile, then again over a smooth tile. The textured tile shows how plaque and germs can stick to rough tooth surface, where if the tooth enamel is smooth and polished, it is less likely to stick.

In addition to the new toothpaste, Colgate is proud to introduce a breakthrough product for sensitivity suffers, like me. Introducing new Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush + Built-in Sensitivity Relief Pen.

How does it work? Simple! A week before enjoying your ice cream, replace your regular toothbrush with the Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush + Built-in Sensitivity Relief Pen. After brushing, simply apply the gel in the pen directly to the source of the pain and gently massage for one minute. No need to rinse! The gel in the pen creates a seal against sensitivity pain to shield the exposed nerve instead of merely numbing the pain. Within a week you get long-lasting relief with continued use of the product. It's as easy as Brush. Apply. Go!

You can find these new products from Colgate at most large retailers nationwide.

Serve These Scrumptious Spinach & Cheese Rolls For Easter Dinner!

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

My whole life, I hated spinach. Then something changed about 2 years ago, and like Popeye, now I just can't get enough of it! I usually like to mix it in with my pasta dishes (it's so tasty in my stuffed shells recipe!) but I've been coming across a lot of recipes that call for spinach  that really intrigue me lately. I saw this Spinach and Cheese Roll Recipe over at Golden Blossom Honey, and thought "Hmmm, that might be a good addition to our Easter dinner table this year." I did a test run this week, just to be sure, and it was a real winner!

Spinach Bread

I have tried many amazing recipes from Golden Blossom Honey, but this one has been my absolute favorite so far. Not only was it really easy to toss together, the cheese and spinach all tucked into the bread was like Ka-Pow in your mouth. So. Dang. Good!


1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
1 large egg, beaten
2 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup fresh white breadcrumbs
1 (11 ounce) refrigerated crusty French bread dough


Spinach Cheese Bread

You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

If you like this recipe, be sure to come back every Friday, where I feature a new recipe from Golden Blossom Honey!

Do you like spinach? Do you think this recipe would be a good addition to your Easter dinner?

Wordless Wednesday ~ Over It

Okay, this isn't quite wordless. Have you ever started a project and were so gung-ho to get going? That was me 2 months ago. My husband had the brilliant idea to tackle turning a catch-all room in our basement into a useable laundry room/craft area. I thought it would only take about a month, but oh no. We are well into our second month, and I'm over it. This project has taken every free second we have. I am exhausted, feel constantly dirty, and have narrowly missed a few massive breakdowns. That's me. Sitting on the dirty floor pouting, wishing this nightmare would end. In all honestly, I only have about 3 more full days and it will be complete, but finding the desire to get on it is completely lost on me. I am hoping it's like birth. Once it's finished, you see all the beauty and forget all the pain.

When's the last time you felt in over your head on a project?

Gently Cleanse Hands With New Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap {Giveaway} #PurexInsiders

*Disclosure- The Dial® brand provided me with a sample of Dial Sugar Can Husk Scrub Hand Soap to facilitate this review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.

These past few weeks, my hands have be dirty, dirty, dirty. Doing home renovation will do that to you, though. Recently, I've been tasked with the messy job of caulking and painting our basement, and neither paint nor caulk wash off of hands easily without some heavy duty scrubbing. Or, so I thought! I just received a bottle of new Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap and it's a new staple in my tool bag (or just next to the kitchen sink!)

Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap

In addition to chipped nails, home improvement projects can be damaging to skin. Here my hands are splotched with primer, which normally takes some effort to wash off, but the gentle micro scrubbers and rich lather really help to loosen the gunk so I can quickly wash it away. Imagine what it can do with just every day dirt and germs! Not only do my hands feel soft and smooth after using the deep cleansing hand soap, since it is inspired by freshly cut sugar cane, they smell terrific!

10 Easter Basket Fillers Under $10 For Tween Girls!

*Disclosure- This post contains affiliate links. Please see my policy tab for more information.

I was sitting here last night and it hit me. We have less than 2 weeks before Easter, and I haven't bought a single thing for my girl's Easter baskets this year! No gifts, no candy, no nothing! Mariah is pretty easy to buy for, but Allison is at that stage where the toy aisles aren't that cool anymore, but she's not quite interested in what the teens are all using either. I sat here trying to think up suitable gifts that didn't cost a fortune (because if she had her way, she'd be sporting a cell phone right now, which is a big, fat no-go!) and kept coming up with nothing. Then I remembered she just started a Wanelo account, so I headed over there to see what's been grabbing her attention lately. If you are struggling for tween girl basket filler ideas, then allow me to make a few suggestions ;)

Every time we get invited to a birthday party, the first thing the girls ask for are Lego Friends. We have quite the collection started here, but I thought this LEGO Friends Bunny and Babies set would be cute for the baskets.

If your kids are like mine, then Minecraft is all the rage right now. These Minecraft Action Figures with Accessory is a must to continue Minecraft play away from the computer!

I am a huge fan of putting books in baskets for gifts. Wreck This Journal is an awesome book that gets kids using their imaginations. I bought this one for Allison for Christmas, and she is still using it often, and is even asking for other editions to fill her collection. The book is meant to be written in and destroyed, giving prompts like: Smear mud on this page, or Fill this page with fruit stickers, or even rip this page out and freeze it."

 For the girls who are artsy, Gel Pens are a huge hit! Especially if you can find the scented ones!


Both of my girls (and all their friends!) are obsessed with EOS lipbalm! I think the spheres are a bit awkward to hold, but they also make EOS Organic Lip Balm Sticks!

All natural nail-polishes are great too! I like Piggy Paint because it's low odor, non-toxic and kid friendly!

 I don't remember the last time I purchased plain white socks for my kids. If it's not printed or fuzzy, they aren't wearing them! Funky Print Socks are something my girls love to get, and they are super cheap!

Maybe my kids are weird, but they adore electronic toothbrushes and look forward to getting them. Allison has a Frozen electric toothbrush on her wishlist right now, but she is currently using one that comes with stickers so she can customize it to her liking.

Emojis. Who doesn't love them!? You can't go wrong with anything Emoji right now. I actually bought Mariah the purple devil emoji pillow for Christmas and I'm pretty sure it was one of her favorite gifts (it was the only one she bragged about on social media!) Now, Allison has this heart eyes Emoji Pillow in her wishlist.

Of course, when all else fails, the classic gift card and movie ticket gifts are always well received!

What are you putting in your baskets this year?
