Protect your family with the new First Alert 10-Year CO710 Carbon Monoxide Alarm and giveaway....

The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own. Giveaway prize will be fulfilled by the sponsor!
You never know when a Carbon Monoxide (CO) leak may happen. It's known as the 'silent killer' because carbon monoxide is a toxic gas that is colorless, odorless, tasteless and initially non irritating until sometimes too late and then it can be fatal. 

Protecting your home with CO Alarms is very important and First Alert --the most trusted name in home safety has the right products to help keep you and your family safe. 
First Alert has created the first 10-year battery powered CO alarm CO710 for maximum protection with minimal maintenance. That's right there is no battery replacement for the life of the alarm. It offers a 10 year limited warranty and has an 'end of life' warning that notifies you when the alarm needs replaced. Protecting your family from carbon monoxide should be easy and this 10 year alarm does just that. Simply turn it on and it will offer early CO detection for up to 10 years. 

The Multifunction display of the CO710 has a Backlit Digital Display that not only lets you know the current/peak CO levels, but it also displays the room temperature at all times. 


The new CO710 10-Year Carbon Monoxide Alarm retails for around $60 and I love that once you get it there are no costly battery replacements and it's virtually fuss-free. Mount it on the wall or simply set it in the free-standing position and you are ready to go. We have several CO alarms in our home, but I bet there are many homes out there without any kind of CO protection. It's so important to have these in your home and worth every penny in my opinion if it will save me or my family's life. 

First Alert not only offers Carbon Monoxide Alarms, but they also offers Smoke Alarms and Fire Extinguishers as well as many other great products to help notify you of life threatening emergencies. 

Where To Place Safety Products:

SMOKE ALARM --One on every level of your home and in every bedroom

CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM --One on every level and near each sleeping area

FIRE EXTINGUISHER --One on every level of your home, plus kitchen and garage areas

Is YOUR home protected? Visit First Alert to learn more about their great products and how they can help keep your family safe!


We want to help keep your family safe! I've teamed up with First Alert and one lucky reader will win the new Carbon Monoxide CO710 10-Year Alarm!

Refresh, Restore and Repair your health with Colgate Total Daily Repair Regimen during National Women's Health Week #MyColgateSelfie

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

It's National  Women's Health week (May 8th- 14th) and I'm joining the Colgate Total Pledge to Refresh, Restore and Repair my health from mouth to toe.

I pledged to put my health first by sharing my "healthyselfie" on social media using hashtag #MyColgateSelfie and I hope you will too!

One of the most overlooked small steps women can take to help improve their overall health is better oral care habits. By making small changes to your daily routine like using the Colgate Total® Daily Repair regimen you can improve your overall oral health. This new regimen includes Colgate Total® Daily Repair Toothpaste and Colgate Total® Daily Repair Mouthwash. 
  • Repairs Early Damage to Teeth and Gums* (Colgate Total® Daily Repair toothpaste)
  • Refreshes Breath; Restores Natural Calcium to Teeth; Repairs Weakened Enamel (Colgate Total® Daily Repair Mouthwash)

  • 4x Deeper Reach** (Colgate® 360°® Total® Advanced manual toothbrush)

I've been using these products for a few weeks now and and they really make my mouth feel fresh and clean. I feel good knowing that I am taking care of my oral health and will continue to make it an important step in my day! 
Will you take the pledge to put your health first during National Women's Health week by posting your "healthy selfie"? A healthy selfie is simply a photo of you participating in any activity that contributes to overall health and wellness. We'd love to see a selfie of you enjoying a nutritious snack, getting in a quick workout, enjoying the outdoors with your family or using Colgate Total® to improve your Oral Health.

Simple Tips for taking the Perfect Healthy Selfie

Natural Light is your friend. Try turning to the side (at a 45 degree angle) to ensure your smile is in the best lighting.

That said, having sun directly in your eyes and face is not fun! Avoid direct sunlight because it creates a hard contrast photo with dark shadows. Make sure you're in the shade, but have natural light available.

Your camera angle is one of the most important parts of taking a selfie. Work to adjust your camera to find an angle that you like best. For example, raising your camera above your head will make your neckline appear slimmer --whatever angle you choose just have fun with it.

Lastly, Be CONFIDENT --no mater the angle or pose, you can always light up any photo with a smile!
