Sponsored post on behalf of CVS/pharmacy and Colgate but opinons are 100% my own!

When I was a little girl, my mom used to hammer me about brushing and flossing daily.  As a kid it drove me crazy!!!  As an adult and a mom, I appreciate her drilling good oral hygiene. And it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t continue the tradition, right?

Yes, I too, drive my daughter nutso about proper oral care.  The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it? Funny thing is…my mom is 82 and still asks me about my teeth and if I’m caring for them properly.

That’s because she doesn’t want me to go through the same dental troubles and costs that she has gone through with dozens of trips to the dentists, pulled teeth, crowns and much more. You see, the enamel of the tooth is the first layer of defense for your teeth and it can chip and crack from daily use such as chewing, biting and grinding.  Bacteria in our mouths can produce acids that cause enamel erosion.

Fortunately today, we have products to help us protect our teeth.  You’ll want to check out Colgate Enamel Health toothpaste that’s new to the market.  How convenient that you can take care of the enamel on your teeth with no extra steps besides brushing!

For me, it’s just like brushing with normal Colgate without even knowing all the amazing things its doing behind the scenes:

  • Has an active fluoride system that helps replenish natural calcium and other minerals back into weakened enamel, filling in rough spots to help make it stronger and more resistant to acid damage.
  • Contains enamel safe silica that polishes the enamel surface so that germs are less likely to stick.
  • Colgate has included a touch-and-feel patch on Enamel Health Toothpaste cartons with smooth and rough sides to demonstrate the feel of healthy, smooth enamel as compared to damaged, rough enamel.

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 4.03.31 PMAnd what you brush your teeth with is just as important.  The Colgate 360°® Enamel Health™ Manual Toothbrush is by FAR my favorite toothbrush.  It’s comfortable to hold and designed to help protect the enamel and gums with softer bristles!

 

 

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 4.51.57 PM

You can find these products at your local CVS/pharmacy.  The products range from $4.49 to $5.49.  But you can always save by purchasing it through the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare program.  Be on the lookout in the weekly ad for offers on the new Colgate® Enamel Health™ toothpaste and toothbrush!  You’ll also want to keep a lookout here for potential coupons on Colgate Enamel Health that you can use at CVS along with the ExtraCare program!

IScreen Shot 2014-09-07 at 4.19.19 PMf you haven’t signed up for the CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare program you’re missing out on big savings!  I shop weekly at CVS and get awesome deals because of this program!

  • Each time you shop, CVS/pharmacy ExtraCare cardholders can scan their card for ExtraBucks® Rewards, which is like “free CVS money” that can be used on most things at CVS/pharmacy.
  • Unlike other confusing points-based loyalty programs, ExtraBucks Rewards were designed to make it very easy for cardholders to redeem their rewards by spending them on nearly anything they want throughout the store. Shoppers earn 2% back on nearly all purchases made throughout the store (including on all their favorite Colgate products for the whole family!). These rewards are just for scanning an ExtraCare card during each shopping trip, and are paid out quarterly. Members also earn ExtraBucks Rewards by purchasing specially-advertised items that pay out at the time of the qualifying purchase.

Now one of you get a chance to check out Colgate Enamel Health!  Just leave a comment below on why you would like to win.  We’ll choose a winner on September 16th!  Good luck.

GIVEAWAY: Jamberry Nail Wraps + Starter Kit (2 Winners)

Posted by My Dallas Mommy on Friday, July 25th, 2014 at 11:15 am
The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the Full Disclosures!

I was recently contacted by one of our readers who wanted to know if I might be interested in trying out Jamberry Nails. Honestly, I had seen friends with photos of their Jamberry nails on my FB news feed and thought I’d give it a shot! Actually, I gave it a shot on my daughters’ nails because I’ve been promising her some fancy nails for a while!

I used a sheet of purple wraps with foils stars and accented with a printed wrap – she loves it!

If you’ve never heard of Jamberry Nails, they specialize in decorative nail wraps – but that’s not all! They also sell polish, hand care, and nail care products.

Jennifer (MyDFWMommy reader) is an independent consultant for the company and she sent me a sheet of wraps along with a file, buffer, cuticle stick, orange stick and alcohol pads. All I needed to get started was a tiny pair of cuticle scissors and a hair dryer!

There are over 300 designs to choose from in their catalog (or you can go HERE to view them online) – WOW! There are so many incredible choices and honestly, it’s hard to chose! :)The wraps come on a a plastic sheet in a variety of sizes and you there are 18 wraps. You’ll get 2-3 uses out of each sheet – even more if you’re only using the wraps as an accent color to go along with polished nails…

I love the collegiate styles – perfect for the fall session! There’s even a line for little girls – get some to match your back to school outfit!

As far as durability, they say the wraps can last up to 14 days. My daughter has just gone through 2 days of volleyball camp and they still look great.

If you are interested in checking out Jennifer’s Jamberry site, you can click here. She does online and catalog parties where you can earn free wraps when your friends order. If you’re interested in being an independent consultant, she can help get you on your way!

We’d love to give 2 MyDFWMommy readers each a Jamberry Wrap sheet of their choice as well as a file, buffer, cuticle stick, orange stick and alcohol pads. To enter, head here, look around, and tell us your favorite design in a comment below. We’ll announce 2 winners on Friday, 8/1.

Dallas-based Zoës Kitchen believes that goodness is meant to be shared. In that spirit, Zoës is hosting the Summer of Goodness initiative, which inspires people to do good and then share their good deeds through #sharegoodness.

When I hear stories about random acts of kindness, it makes my heart swell (to be honest, I usually cry!). An act of kindness doesn’t even require money…sure, you can pick up the tab for someone’s coffee, but simple things such as holding the door open for someone, making a donation of gently used books and magazine to a nursing home, mowing a neighbor’s yard, or offering to babysit for a friend/neighbor are just as powerful.

We’d love to see our MyDFWMommy readers take part in the Zoës Summer of Goodness and share with us your act of kindness – let’s help inspire one another! We’ll give one reader a Summer of Goodness Prize Pack which includes an All You magazine yearly subscription, a coupon book, and a Target $25 gift card, plus a  Zoës Kitchen gift card and other goodies ($100 total value!)

To enter, leave us a comment below and share an act of kindess you performed. Earn earn extra entries for using the hashtag #sharegoodness on social media platforms whether it’s a Facebook post, Tweet or Instagram tag. Just come back and leave us the link!

We’ll announce a winner on Friday, 8/1!

Remember…no act of kindness, no matter how small is wasted!

More info about the concert:

Part concert, part animated movie and 100 percent fun, The New York Times describes Gustafer Yellowgold as, “Dr. Seuss meets Yellow Submarine!” The brain child of singer/songwriter/illustrator Morgan Taylor, Gustafer Yellowgold is a creature who hails from the sun. During the concert, the story of Gustafer and his friends comes to life on a giant screen while Morgan and his band play lush harmonies and sing-along-worthy tunes. This concert is perfect family fun.

We’d love to give one of our MyDFWMommy readers a family 4-pack of tickets to attend the show on 8/2! To enter, tell us you favorite Gustafer Yellowgold song or video in a comment below (check them out HERE). We’ll announce a winner on Tuesday, 7/29
