#TimeToSmile Oral Health Month


“This post was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive”


I’ve partnered with Colgate to spread the importance of a healthy smile for Oral Health Month #TimeToSmile #SonrisaColgate.


One of the most important things we can do as parents is teach our children the importance of oral hygiene. Anthony- my son, is now 7 years old, he has lost 3 teeth so far and slowly his permanent teeth are coming in. This parenting stuff isn't easy, we don’t have a manual on how to be the best mommy and daddy but we sure have the wits and knowledge to know that a healthy smile is important. I love to spend quality time with my son and the more things I can do with him means the more I can teach him. This month we are focusing on Oral Health. He knows the fundamentals - brushing after meals, flossing these pretty little gums of his daily and his favorite part of the routine….mouth wash!

One thing that I enjoy doing with Anthony is brushing his teeth. Yes, he’s 7. Yes, he’s a little big boy and should already know how to brush but I don't mind doing it for him. At the same time that I am brushing, I am showing him how to brush, telling him the importance of a healthy white smile and I am building a trusting bond with my child. I love how he shows me his pearly whites after every brush.



Did you know that according to a Colgate-Palmolive/Toluna Survey in March 2016, Hispanics report oral health issues at higher rates than the general U.S. population? Yup, 87% of the Hispanic parents surveyed know that early oral care education is very important for their children, however 59% think they can do a better job of it. As a busy mom, I can relate. I am glad I partnered with Colgate to remind me and my family of the importance of a clean mouth. 
 


Colgate is committed to improving oral health for everyone to have a future they can smile about. Colgate and the American Dental Association (ADA) will continue partnering in the campaign “Oral Health Month: Share More Time, Share More Smiles”.I hope you do the same with your little ones. You can also help spread the word that for every image liked, shared, or posted on social media between June 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 with the hashtag #TimeToSmile, Colgate will donate $1 (min. $10k, max. $40k) to the ADA Foundation’s Give Kids A Smile® program that provides free oral health care, education and screening to underserved children. 


Colgate, in partnership with the ADA, also offers bilingual oral health education materials such as shareable infographics, activity sheets for kids, and other oral care resources on colgate.com/sonrisas. Bilingual videos, articles, downloadable family activities will also be available on the ADA’s site MouthHealthy.org/OralHealthMonth.

A night out with Marissa Lopez Wong - Mario Lopez sister

A couple of weeks ago, Mario Lopez was set to make an appearance at Lumen Lounge and due to things beyond our control he could not make it. However after speaking to him, he asked me to host his sister and brother in law and I gladly did. Marissa Lopez Wong is an author as well as sister to top Latin TV Host Mario Lopez and Kailee Wong is a retired NFL player. They live in Houston with their children and after a good dinner they celebrated the night away at Lumen. 
Waiting on when Mario will remake his appearance, hopefully it will be soon!

Better Together (sponsored post)

With my hubby and little man in the house things can get hectic. We all have packed schedules that require us to be on the go all day. That’s why I love using Caress Daily Silk Body wash Value Pack and my boys are smelling great with Axe Black from Sam’s Club. They are quick, easy to travel with, and smell great.



But best of all, Sam’s Club carries them! So, I can grab them while I am stocking the house up, and we have enough for both my guys!
Preparing for the day, freshening up mid-day, or getting ready for a night out, a quick blast of confidence from Axe is what my boys need.
But with Axe Black and Caress, my entire family is #BetterTogetherSC!


And Caress is for me, it gives me just what I need to start my day feeling fresh and lovely. I also love the reassurance that I smell great through out the day. 
And after a long day it is the perfect way to relax. 
And Sam’s makes it so easy to pick it up and go with their new app. Scan and Go! It makes my shopping trips so much quicker a…

Busy Day- look of the week post

Happy Friday SpoiledOnes! I had a very busy week and wanted to share some photos and a little of what I have been up to. Since returning from Miami, I have been swamped with work, parenting, holding a house hold down and maintaining to be Spoiled as can be. Lol When I say Spoiled it doesn't necessarily mean that I am buying myself things but it also means taking care of ME. Eating better, working out, getting the proper sleep and an occasional massage.
