With the touch of a button you can have Colgate products delivered right to your doorstep --#dashbutton

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

I did a blog post a few weeks ago about Colgate joining the Amazon Dash Program and I'm so excited to tell you a little more about it now that I have one of the Dash Buttons in my possession! I had never heard of these before, but let me tell you you're going to need one in every room for your most used items.

If you're anything like our family you're probably busy and love anything that makes life a little easier, right? Well the Dash Button will do just that! The Amazon Dash Button is a Wi-Fi connected button that is linked to your Amazon shopping account and literally allows you to press it and wa-la the product is on your doorstep (okay it may take a few days, but you get the point).

So if you have a Dash button for Doritos you can press the button in your kitchen when you're running low and you're fave chips show up on your doorstep, running out of Tide then put a Tide Dash button in your laundry room and press it when you're getting low and a shipment of detergent will soon be there, need toothpaste then that's when the Colgate Dash button comes in handy. Simply place the Colgate Dash Button on your bathroom counter and press it when you notice you soon need toothpaste, a new toothbrush or even mouthwash.

I can't tell you how many times we've almost ran out of toothpaste and I say that I'm going to the store to get some that day and as soon as I walk out of the bathroom I forget. Then bedtime comes I remember again, but who's going to run out of the house to purchase any that time of night---not me! So with the Dash Button all I have to do is press the button and toothpaste is ordered. 

Setup is super simple --first purchase the button for $5, once it arrives link it to your account, pick the products you love, place the button near the products being used and needing purchased and when you need to order press your new Dash Button and products are on order --it's that easy!

Want your very own Colgate Dash Button? You can purchase one here: 

  • Amazon Dash Button is a Wi-Fi connected device that reorders your favorite product with the press of a button. Each Dash Button is paired with a product of your choice, which is selected through the Amazon App on your Android or iOS smartphone during the set-up process.

Let Exergen care for you and your family this cold and flu season with their Smart Glow TemporalScanner...

 The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this feature. However, all products are honest and our own!


Who isn't sick right now!?! There isn't a family I know that hasn't had someone sick recently. Whether it be a horrible cold, the awful flu or some other issue, the sickies sure have been going around. 

You never want sickness to hit your home, but if it does you should always be prepared. We always keep things like cold medicine, fever reducer, cough drops and more on hand just in case it hits here. When my kids get sick you can almost bet that they have a fever along with whatever it is they have and having a thermometer that works accurately on hand is so  important too.

Exergen has your back with their Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner that is perfect for parents like me. It accurately reads a temperature in 2 seconds and gauges body temperature by capturing the naturally emitted heat from skin over the temporal artery, which runs across the forehead and is directly connected to the heart via the carotid artery. It's simple to use by sliding the thermometer in a reasonably straight line across the forehead, midway between the eyebrows and the upper hairline. 

It's the #1 prefered thermometer by both nurses and pediatricians, and is backed by more than 60 clinical studies proving its accuracy!

Exergen Smart Glow Temporal Scanner's 4 unique features...

Soft-Glow Display
Soft lighting for easy reading in any light. Perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant (or adult) in a darkened room.

8 Temperature Memory
Automatically retain the last 8 temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression.

Silent Mode
Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child (or adult).


I take comfort in knowing that the minute I think one of my boys is sick I can accurately take their temperature to see if they have a fever that needs treated or not. I like that this thermometer is easy to read and easy to use. It's great not having to turn bright lights on to check their temperatures during the night and I love that it records up to 8 readings so that I we can easily keep track of them knowing if it's increased or decreased. It doesn't matter if I'm the one taking it or my husband we'll both know with this stored info. 

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner is made in the United States and can be purchased at major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies "R" Us, Toys "R" Us, Kroger and Bj's for around $49.99.

Professionally whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home with Smile Brilliant's Custom-Fitted Teeth Whitening Trays....Part 1

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

I'm so excited to start a new regimen to a beautiful new whiter smile with Smile Brilliant's at home professional teeth whitening system.

We've all heard about the expensive whitening trays that you can purchase through your dentist to achieve whiter teeth that can cost well over $500. Now you can get the same custom trays with the same percentage of teeth whitening gel at a fraction of the cost, no appointment needed. 

In 3 easy steps you can start whitening at home...

1. Make your Dental Impressions --Simply make your impressions with the putty and plastic trays provided. Fill out the consent card and mail everything back in the envelope included.

2. Let Smile Brilliant's lab craft your trays --Once the Smile Brilliant lab receives your dental impressions, your trays will be created and put back in the mail to you in 3-5 business days.

3. Whiten and Relax --Use your custom-fitted whitening trays, in combination with Smile Brilliant's premium teeth whitening gel to get the beautiful white smile you've always wanted. 


I'm so exited to try this system. I received the kit in the mail, made my impressions and have sent them back to the lab so that they can create my custom whitening trays. The process so far was super easy and I can't wait get them back so I can start whitening! 

I'll be back soon with my before and after photos, I can't wait to share my results. In the meantime if you'd like to start the process or learn more about Smile Brilliants teeth whitening system visit:
