A Birthday Smile

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #OpticSmiles #CollectiveBias


Today is Chinas 21st birthday, a very special age in any young persons life. She is quite the beauty isn't she? She is also such a drama queen and a bit if a narcissist, but she's my sister. To celebrate her birthday we decided to grab the family and have an impromptu vacation in San Diego county. We've had an amazing week hitting the beach every day and getting to spend time in all the places we used to go to when we were little. We are from Oceanside and since moving to the Inland Empire don't get to go back home that often even though it's so close. Having a week to spend with all of the kids, including China's little boy Jeremiah has been more fun than we had imagined. 


Before heading on vacation we prepared by getting our brows threaded and we each got a mani and pedi. O'side is all about the flip flops so our feet had to be ready to be seen. Another important step in preparing for our vacay was our smile, because there would be many selfies to take. China is a smoker and coffee lover ( I don't know why my sister smokes and why she refuses to stop ), and let me tell you how unkind that is to her smile. Out of all of us, she is the one with the best teeth and she has a gorgeous smile, but smoking really makes her teeth yellow. 


With no extra time to spare we ran to Walmart and found the endcap featuring Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste. Whiter teeth in just three days? Exactly what we needed! Unlike most whitening toothpastes, Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste contains the professionally recommended ingredient hydrogen peroxide to whiten faster with brushing alone. Colgate Express White Toothpaste has 2 times more of the professionally recommended whitening ingredient (vs. Optic White Sparkling Mint TP). 


Want to try it and save some cash? There will be a roaming demo in 550 stores on 2/28/15 to promote the new product. Ambassadors will be roaming aisle giving out $1 off coupons good on Express White Toothpaste. Check this store list to find a demo in your area. 


With just a day and a half of planning we were able to head out on our vacation all ready to look our best and just enjoy the time off. It's not everyday that you turn 21 and it's not every day that you get to spend a week on the beach, it's been very special. 


When you're on vacation the last thing you want to worry about is your smile. Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste is a quick, affordable and easy way to get that whiter smile in just three days. That way you can enjoy the moment and have that perfect Birthday Smile. Happy birthday Chinese.

A Lifetime of Firsts

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pampers.  All opinions are 100% mine.

My son is the love of my life, from the minute I saw his first sonogram, it was love at first sight. I wasn't prepared for all the love that one little person can bring to your life, I still look at him and can't believe that little Asian dude is mine. He's only two and yet it feels like i've known him forever. We've had so many first in just these two years of life.


The first time I ever laid eyes on him: I remember thinking he looked so Asian and nothing like me! That's the day I changed my first diaper and it was so weird. But Pampers Swaddlers made it easy and since Pampers is softest diaper and offers up to 12 hours of overnight protection. he was nice and dry from his first day on.


The first time we realized he would be quite the charmer: this kid has charm left and right. He's also the king of fashion and always makes everyone else look sloppy.


The first time he made his own bear friend: he still has this stuffed animal, all of his stuffed animals are his favorite toys.


The first time he wore leather: as a fashion-forward family, the day your child wears his first leather jacket is a very special day. This is one cool dude!


Awwww, and we all remember his first pumpkin patch, he was not happy at all.


Pampers understands there is nothing more joyful or rewarding than the precious first-time moments shared by little ones and their families. In honor of this special journey, Pampers has released a compilation video entitled “Firsts” that highlight those wondrous “first” experiences together. From the first time parents see their little one on a sonogram to the first evening home from the hospital, the Pampers “Firsts” video showcases precious, heart-felt moments babies and parents share together. As the #1 choice of hospitals in North America* and the first diaper worn by millions of babies, Pampers Swaddlers comforts and protects babies through their entire journey of firsts, helping to  ensure their happy, healthy development.
