All opinions are mine alone. #AmericasTea #CollectiveBias March and April are my favorite times to go green with Saint Patrick's Day, Earth Day approaching, and who can forget the much anticipated Spring! When we start thinking about St. Patrick's Day, we immediately think of green everything even green tea, foods, etc... Green Tea is one of my favorite ways to enjoy tea.

Optic White Smile with Colgate Express White {DIY Mint Latte Lip Scrub}


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #OpticSmiles #CollectiveBias Over time our features change to give away our age.

I have dealt with crooked and stained teeth for years. I guess subconsciously I have always tried to hard them. Join me on the journey to open-mouthed smiles, smoother lips, and a brighter smile! Unlike most whitening toothpastes, Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste contains the professionally recommended ingredient hydrogen peroxide to whiten faster. This … [Continue]

Gluten Free on a Budget with Walmart


Please note: This is a sponsored post with my honest opinions as always Gluten Free is a big part of our lives since we have members of the family with Celiac Disease.
