NatureSweet Glorys: Great NEW Taste with Cutting Edge Package {Recipe}

 This post is Sponsored by NatureSweet but my opinions are 100% my own!

NatureSweet

 

I love tomatoes and can’t wait to grow some this summer.   I like to add them to salads and stir-frys and have them for snacks!  One of my favorite snacks in the middle of the day is some tomatoes, cheese and turkey pepperoni!   I buy NatureSweet®   Glorys™ at Stop & Shop all the time and I love the NEW packaging of these tomatoes.  You can wash them right in the package and then grab some and seal up the package to keep the rest fresh.  I love that I don’t have to put them in something else and can use the packaging they come in,to store them until they are gone.  And then toss it into the recycle bin!

Innovation continues to abound at NatureSweet® with the company’s signature Glorys™ brand. This month marks the highly anticipated nationwide roll-out of what promises to be the tastiest, highest quality cherry tomato available in the market. With a sleek new package specifically designed for utility and visibility, these new Glorys will indeed be the freshest ingredient tomatoes available in today’s market.  

The new proprietary packaging is 100 percent recyclable and features a re-sealable lid with ventilation holes in both the top and bottom of the container, making the rinse and storage process a breeze for consumers.

“NatureSweet is thrilled with the fresh new look and taste of our Glorys tomatoes,” said Michael Joergensen, Vice President of Marketing. “The unique packaging provides renewed function, visibility and protection to ensure unrivaled freshness and taste, making them our tastiest Glorys ever.”

Check out the recipes at NatureSweet.com and discover a new way to enjoy NatureSweet Glorys.  I’m going to make these Tomato Bacon Bites at my next get together.

Softsoap-Fresh-Glow

This post is Sponsored by Softsoap but my opinions are 100% my own!

As a mom, showering should be a time for stress-free relaxation right?  I mean after all we do shower alone (without children).  Believe it or not 67% of people are spending their time in the shower thinking about work and household chores*. To celebrate the launch of the new Softsoap Fresh & Glow body wash line, Softsoap is challenging you to take back your shower. After all, the shower is the few moments you have to yourself each day to escape – I hope!

Softsoap sent me some of their new products -  Softsoap® Fresh & Glow Body Washes to help me clear my mind, wash away my stress and take back my shower by using the new Softsoap Fresh & Glow body washes while listening to a relaxing playlist.

Softsoap

*The Scoop On Showering, MarketWired.com

I’m a fan of Softsoap and love how it makes my skin feel… soft and smooth.  The Hydrating Shower Cream takes that to the next level leaving my skin so soft and with the nicer weather coming, I want all the dry skin to go away!  The Exfoliating Fruit Polish exfoliated my dry skin leaving it even refreshed and ready for short sleeves and shorts!

I don’t normally play music while in the shower but I made myself a playlist over the weekend and took a nice relaxing shower when I had some time.  Of course I used my NEW Softsoap® Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream and Exfoliating Fruit Polish and listened to some Air Supply (yes I’m a child of the 70′s!) and enjoyed my shower.  My skin was thankful afterwards!

I don’t like to fill my kids Easter Baskets with just candy.  I like to add a few movies, books and even small toys that they like.   A basket full of candy just equals a crazy sugar high filled week for me, which I don’t want!  But the books, movies and toys go a long way.

Zack Quack

Also on March 10th, Zack & Quack came to the U.S. for the 1st time on DVD in the release Zack & Quack: Popping Hopping Easter.

Get White Teeth in 3 days with Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

 This post is Sponsored by Colgate Palmolive but my opinions are 100% my own!

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

Get White Teeth in 3 days with Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

I have a fascination with teeth.  In the past couple of years, I had a lot of dental work done and spent a lot of money on my mouth.   In the process, my teeth were also straightened and I love my smile more than I never did before!  It’s not perfect because an absolute perfect smile would mean a lot more dental work, minor surgery and metal braces and at almost 42, I am not putting metal in my mouth.  We’ll be doing that with the kids in just a few years.  But with a short time using Invisalign, my smile is straighter and fuller.

The problem is I’m a coffee drinker and I drink a lot of it!  So keeping my teeth as white as can be, is an ongoing problem for me.   Colgate has been working on Whitening products for a while now and I love that they continue to bring new products to the table, that work even better or just as good, but in a shorter period of time.  Let’s face it, we are all very busy!

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste I’ve been using Colgate for years!  It’s my favorite brand to use and I often stock up when it’s on sale.  Now I have another new Colgate product to stock up on it’s their Optic White Express White toothpaste.  It has 2X’s the whitening ingredient and gives you whiter teeth in just 3 days!!!

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

The new Colgate® Optic White® PLATINUM Express White Toothpaste promises a whiter,  brighter smile in just three days.*  This formula contains 2x more  Hydrogen Peroxide.** In addition  to being safe for daily use, this product protects your enamel and contains anti-cavity fluoride protection.

You can find it in stores now and it sells for about $1.00 – $6.99 depending on what size you purchase.  It’s great to use alongside the Colgate® 360°® Optic White® Platinum Colgate® 360°® Optic White® Platinum Manual Toothbrush which sells for about $3.99.

I used it immediately and definitely saw results in about 3-4 days.  I brush with it twice a day and have been using it for over a week now and I still see a difference in my teeth.  Even with drinking coffee everyday!  It’s good stuff, try it!!!

This post is Sponsored by Kidz Bop but my opinions are 100% my own! Kidz Bop 28 in Stores March 24, 2015

This post is Sponsored by Kidz Bop but my opinions are 100% my own!

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know my kids are huge Kidz Bop fans!  They would love to see them in concert and ask me all the time!  And whenever there is a new CD about to come out, they are all over me asking when we will get it.   So wouldn’t you know, the other day they said to me “Kidz Bop 28 is coming out this month, can we get it?”.  Little did they know, I already had it and was just waiting for the perfect moment to tell them.

2015-03-18 17.30.34

What I love about Kidz Bop is it’s all of today’s hit music so I get to hear the songs I like too, only cleaned up a bit for kids to hear.  Frankly, I like most of the Kidz Bop versions better than the original ones!

Here is the list of what’s on Kidz Bop 28 which will be in stores and available to download on March 24, 2015:

Kidz Bop 28 in Stores March 24, 2015

The girls love so many of these songs – Uptown Funk, Heroes, Lips Are Moving are just to name a few.   So this one will be well played like all the rest!

If your kids are Kidz Bop fans tell them the new CD is almost here.. just a few more days!
