Crest 3D Whitening Therapy introduces new formulas

Crest 3D Whitening Therapy introduces new formulas


Shopping for toothpaste can be the easiest task or the most challenging. Do you go with what is safe and you are used to or are you adventurous and like to try new things?

What I love is when someone can recommend an outstanding product regardless of how long it’s been sitting on a retail shelf.

Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy has introduced two new formulas to its existing line and I recently got a chance to review them so hopefully one or both become a staple in your daily routine.


We have all seen the very popular videos of people brushing with charcoal infused pastes. The before and after always look great but what most fail to showcase is the mess it leaves on your counter, vanity mirror and all around your sink. After trying the new Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal toothpaste I loved that it provides the amazing benefits of purifying your teeth surface for a whiter, cleaner smile without having to clean your bathroom after the simple task as brushing your teeth. Truly a #BetterWayToCharcoal and perfect for those charcoal lovers looking for a no mess approach!

If you are looking to try something completely new test out the Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Coconut Oil. My son and I loved its vanilla mint flavor and long-lasting fresh feeling this paste provides. I’ve even included this new flavor in my guest bathroom because I want to get feedback from family and friends spending the night since the flavor might be a little unexpected, but with the same deep clean benefits they expect from Crest.

Both new products are available at Target and if you spend $20 you’ll get $5 deal available the week of 3/17. The offer is good on select beauty and personal care items, so shop now to receive your $5 Target gift card.

Bad Bunny hace historia at Vińa del Mar

The king of Latin Trap, BAD BUNNY, continues taking leaps in his career. This past weekend, the artist marked history being the first artist of his genre to perform on the most important stage of Latin music, The 60th Viña del Mar International Song Festival, where he received the coveted Gaviota de Plata (Silver Seagull) y Gaviota de Oro (Golden Seagull).




"I have watched Viña del Mar since I was little and going there sounded like a dream,” said Bunny. "I was a bit anxious, but once I heard the fans screaming, the anxiety turned into excitement because they are my real boss and the audience is the one with the power. This was a dream come true!

The singer-songwriter performed hit after hit including some of the most successful songs from his debut album "X 100PRE." Bad Bunny kicked off his explosive show with "Estamos Bien" and "Ni Bien Ni Mal," then continued with his international hits "Diles," "Si Tu Novio Te Deja Sola" and "Sensualidad." Then, the artist invited El Alfa to perform their collaboration, "La Romana," and then continued with his recent singles "Caro" y "Si Estuviéramos Juntos," to take a short break just to receive his Gaviota de Plata.

At that time, Bad Bunny took the opportunity to invite Arcangel to the stage and thanked him for being the artist who opened the door for him into the world of music. They both sang a duet "Tú No Vive Así" and "Me Acostumbré" and the trap artist then closed with "Soy Peor," which left "El Monstruo" electrified and earned him the Gaviota de Oro. To end his historic concert, the singer-songwriter said goodbye with the mega-hits "Krippy Kush" and "Chambea," and left the stage to the booming sound of applause and cheers.

The festival was full of music, style, and humor, and its stage was graced by other internationally-renowned artists such as Becky G, David Bisbal, Marc Anthony, Sebastian Yatra, The Backstreet Boys, and Wisin y Yandel, among others.

Farewell February

Farewell February

February has got to be my favorite month of the year simply because of the pink and red, the hearts the kisses, the chocolate and the cookies. Everything about Valentine’s Day, I’m with it. But as we all know the cookies and sweets last past beyond Valentine’s Day for example, the girls and I spent Galentine’s Day together this past weekend and we surely ate lots of sweets.



I’m ready to kick my oral hygiene into high gear as we all should and that’s why I’m excited to partner with Crest once again to let you guys know a new coupon is available on the Cartwheel app to get $2.00 off of some of my favorite Crest products including Pro-Health, Complete, and 3D White at Target.(Coupon available in Sunday newspaper as well.) You can also get a $5 gift card if you purchase 4 select beauty/personal care items.

Now that Valentine’s Day is over doesn’t mean the love and sweets have to end...just know me and Crest will be by your side to keep that smile looking bright and white.

SL at Boss Life Ball 2019



Every year, the Boss Life team celebrates one of its own - Rico's birthday and in true boss fashion, the Boss Life Ball was born. Bosses are known to giving back to the community in whatever way they feel necessary. These bosses created a foundation which is the Boss Life Foundation a non-profit organization founded in 2015 to focus greater attention on research and educating the specifically in low-income communities. Boss Life Foundation is also dedicated to educational programs and mentoring the youth. Which is why this years 6th annual Boss Life Ball was that much worth supporting.  The foundation also recognizes local entrepreneurs in the city. Last year, I was an honoree and it felt great going back as a guest not only because of that but because the mission behind the foundation is amazing.
The location was at the beautiful Post Oak Hotel and the vibe was just right. 

I loved seeing everyone happy, dressed to the T's and dancing and most importantly supporting Boss Life Foundation towards their goal of raising $100k towards their efforts.
 I hope the goal was met! 

watch the video below to see the vibes
Congrats to Lastings eMpressions on another successful event!
