I just love this Pink Snow Wreath made with an old sweater from Kara's Party Ideas. I love how it's pink rather than auqua which we often see if snow themed crafts.

Beauty Routines

Let's talk about beauty and beauty routines. One thing I am now grateful for is that I had enough sense to start a beauty routine when I was quite young. Some may say I was vain and others smart, but I think it's a little of both. I'm very picky when it comes to certain things and taking some time to take care of my skin, hair and teeth is important to me. For my blonde hair color I'm happy to sit for hours to bleach and then wait another hour for the toner to get the color of a perfect light blonde. To keep my skin looking young and fresh, I'm happy to use spa treatments, facials and microderm as well as a daily wash, tone and moisturize. Waxing and shaving and keeping the body hair in check can be painful but worth it too. I even went through the pain of having my underarm hair lasered off. Ouch! It takes a little upkeep to stay looking good. According to a survey by the makers of Sensodyne® True White®, 1 in 4 women strongly or somewhat agree that they will suffer through painful beauty routines because the end result is worth it. For my teeth I even had adult braces for 2 years. They have all been worth the sacrifice. One thing I don't have to sacrifice for anymore is my fresh smile.

Yes, I’m really brushing here!For the past 2 weeks I have been using Sensodyne® True White® twice a day to keep my teeth looking brighter without compromising time or my teeth. In the past teeth whitening could be a little painful for my sensitive teeth. With Sensodyne® True White® that has now changed.

Now, you can turn to Sensodyne® True White® for a whiter smile and sensitivity relief, without the compromise. Sensodyne® True White® is 10x less abrasive than many leading whitening toothpastes*, providing gentle stain removal and active stain protection. With twice daily brushing, Sensodyne® True White® provides sensitivity relief and helps whiten your teeth.

*Based on Relative Dentin Abrasivity testing against 15 products in the top 80% of the whitening
toothpaste market.

If you're like me and like a fresh clean smile and have sensitive teeth you should give it a try. Let me know what you think.


Free Christmas Coloring Page

With Christmas just 9 days away, half the country in a major snow and freeze and kids inside wondering what to do I made a fun free Christmas coloring page " Visions on Sugar Plums" to sparks some Christmas Eve dreams.

We used markers to color our pages but crayons, colored pencils or even watercolor paints would be fun.
