Look Your Best for Holiday Photos Thanks to Colgate Optic White Stain-Less White Toothpaste!

I love the holiday season, with lots of food, family, and fun. But one thing I don’t love is all the picture-taking! Yes, I adore getting more pictures of my growing family; I just hate having my own picture taken! Needless to say, if I must go through it, then I want to look my best, and one way to do that is to make sure that my smile is whiter and brighter. Thankfully, I’ve discovered Colgate Optic White Stain-Less White Toothpaste.

We all enjoy those holiday beverages, like flavored coffees, teas and red wine, but they can stain the teeth and give you a dingy smile. But Colgate Optic White Stain-Less White Toothpaste starts working in just three days to help remove those unsightly stains to give you a better holiday smile -- and better family photos! It’s safe for daily use, plus it provides anti-cavity fluoride protection and protects the enamel on your teeth.

Are you going to be flying for the holidays? Colgate Optic White Stain-Less White Toothpaste comes in a 3-ounce tube, so it’s travel-compliant! Grab some for your upcoming trips so you’ll continue to sport a winning smile throughout your holiday adventures.

Welcome Sweater Weather with Softsoap Hydra Bliss Hand Soap for Your Family!


It's sweater weather! Yes, even here in south Florida, the humidity leaves the air, and we start to feel some cooler temperatures. It's bliss! That blissful feeling is made even better with the use of Softsoap Hydra Bliss Hand Soap! When the weather turns cooler, it tends to dry out the skin, but these hand soaps have a hydrating formula that doesn't strip your hands of their natural moisture.

I'm also a fan because they smell so good! The Softsoap Hydra Bliss Hand Soap collection comes in two scrumptious scents: Coconut Water & Blueberry and Cucumber Water & Mint. These wonderful scents will encourage your family to wash. And they're pretty enough to leave out on the bathroom or kitchen counter to add a splash of color to the room.

With kids in the house, I don't need to tell you that we go through a lot of soap in our house. Fortunately, Softsoap makes clean-up easy and fun. I love their whole line of hand soaps and body washes with a wide variety of scents. Best of all, they're effective in keeping our family's skin feeling soft and smooth, especially during the winter months. Do your family a favor and pick up some Softsoap at your local store today!

New on Blu-ray and DVD: "The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition"! Giveaway Included (2 Winners)


I have always loved Christmas shows, so I was really excited to hear about the release of The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition! These are the classics that I grew up with and looked forward to watching every year. When I became a mother, I couldn't wait to share these timeless holiday films with my kids! Now these 5 unforgettable stories come together on Blu-ray™ and DVD, available now from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, with all-new bonus features.

Starring the voice talents of Fred Astaire, Jimmy Durante, Mickey Rooney, Danny Thomas, Burl Ives and many more, these favorites also feature some of the most beloved songs of the season and are sure to entertain audiences of all ages for generations to come!

The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition includes:
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
Frosty the Snowman (1969)
Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town (1970)
The Little Drummer Boy (1968)
Cricket on the Hearth (1967)

Bonus features include:

· The Animagic World of Rankin/Bass: An all-new documentary celebrating the legacy of the holiday specials created by Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass including interviews with filmmakers and historians.
· Restoring the Puppets of Rudolph: Discover how the puppets from the beloved special were restored.
· Reimagining Rudolph in 4D: A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the new Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer attraction film.

· Commentaries on Frosty the Snowman and Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town
· And much more!

Which story is your favorite? For me, it's hard to choose, but I have to say that I have a particular fondness for Santa Claus Is Coming to Town because it tells the story of how Mr. and Mrs. Claus met, and explains how many of our Christmas traditions came about. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is definitely a close second in my book of favorites, especially the parts with my favorite character, Herbie the Dentist!

I hope you'll pick up a copy of The Original Christmas Specials Collection: Deluxe Edition on DVD or Blu-ray to share with your family. Watch them while you're making cookies or just enjoy them on Family Movie Night!

Review and Giveaway: Teen Titans GO! to the Movies

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES
Now available on Digital, DVD and Blu-ray

About the Movie: It seems like all the superheroes are getting their own movies -- everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! Determined to be a star, Robin vows to change this. If only they could get Hollywood director Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell) to notice them! With a few madcap ideas and musical numbers (of course), the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town. But when Supervillain Slade (Will Arnett) messes with their plans, the Teen Titans will have to become true superheroes to save the world!

My Thoughts: If your kids are fans of the Teen Titans GO! TV show, then they won't be disappointed in this movie, which stays true to the formula that makes the show such a hit. This movie also appeals to adults who love superhero movies as it pokes gentle fun at the whole genre and even has a cameo by Stan Lee! And it has a good message for kids: "Even though you're small, you can do great things! Don't let others tell you that you're not good enough because you're perfect just the way you are." With lots of humor, music and action, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is fun for everyone.

BLU-RAY AND DVD SPECIAL FEATURES

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies Blu-ray Combo Pack contains the following special features:

• Lil Yachty Music Video: “Teen Titans GO! Rap”
• Sing-a-long with Silkie “DC Super Hero Girls: The Late Batsby” Mini-Movie
