Keeping things fresh, with SCOPE!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SCOPE for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As a photographer I'm always giving my clients direction on posing and expression.  Which means I'm getting close, maybe even touching them to help them into a pose.  So fresh breath is extremely important to me!  Brushing alone doesn't always last and gum just seems unprofessional during a shoot.  So I am testing out the new SCOPE flavors!  

Mouth wash can be torcher right?  It stings your tounge and sometimes tastes horrible.  Well the sting of the tounge for me is something I chalk up to being effective, but the taste!  My new SCOPE tates fabulous, has minimal sting, and gives me long lasting fresh breath!  It's the SCOPE "Outlast" which promises to give you fresh breath up to 5 times longer than brushing alone.  You can also get the "Dual-Blast" which gets rid of strong orders like garlic and onion while killing 98% of bad breath germs.  And of course you can get "Classic" for fresh breath and 99% germ killing.

After trying the outlast I love how fresh it leaves my breath.  I feel confident in getting close to my client giving me  Fresh breath & courage, 1 oz at a time!  I also love that it's easy to find at my local Walmart!  So get fresh people!  Be sure to Like Scope on Facebook!

No nonsense brings on the trends!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of No nonsense for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

You have heard of No nonsense right?  I remember as a gradeschooler getting ready for a school concert and my mom would take me to the drug store at the last minute to get some No nonsense nylons to wear with my pretty concert dres.  Well I've grown up, and so has No nonsense!  Now not only can you get those sensible nylons but you can get super cute No nonsense tights and leggings in trendy colors!

As a photographer it's really important that my style be fun yet allow me to move around freely.  I have to be able to bend, lay, crawl.... I'm not kidding, the last thing I want to worry about when getting that perfect shot is if I'm flashing anyone.  So leggins and tights are a HUGE part of my wordrobe.  

Helping to spread the word and get us all to add a little fun to our wardrobes this year is Jill Martin!  She's so gorgeous and stylish I'm so excited to have her showing us all how it's done.  Not to mention she's a grown woman, so you don't have to worry about if your to old to pull of this look... YOUR NOT! Check out this fun video, I totally have to have those magenta tights! 

I was excited to get to check out a few No nonsense tights and leggings products myself.  Here is the outfit I wore out for New Years this year! 



The leggings I wore are the "Denim" legging in an XL.  I cuffed the bottom to make them more of a capri which totally worked with the denim material.  They are really stretchy and amazing quality.  I hate when you get a pair of leggings and they stretch out so bad when you put them on that you can see your skin through them.  These were really excelent quality and at the affordable No nonsense price!!!! Plus it doesn't get any easier than a trip to the local drug or general store.  Very accesable. 

I'm looking forward to wearing these textured tights too! This is one of my favorite dresses right now and I'm thirlled to try it out with the No nonsense Textured Cable Tights!  You can feel the quality of these tights and they are nice and opaque.

We are not the only one's who can get stressed over the holiday season.  Imagine how your pets feel when your traveling more than normal, or maybe you have a house full of people who to your pet are loud and in their space.  It's no wonder your pet may feel the effects and you may notice it.

Purina Has Your Fur Babies In Mind, There's an App For That!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Purina for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

We have apps for everything right?  I have an app that tells me all about my pregnancy, one that tells me how my kids are doing or lets me look things up if they are sick.... but what about our furry family members?  We have a very important member of our family that I need to keep track of as well, our dog Lainey.  With (about to be) four kids in the house, it's important that I can remember all of Lainey's needs and appointments too.  Now it's easy with the Purina Pet Apps!  

There are actually two apps I want to tell you about that will help you take care of your pets.  Both are available for IPhone and Android operating systems so we can all take advantage.  

The first app is the Pet O Meter which tracks your pets (and your) acitivity.  Not sure if anyone walked the dog today.... or when the last time they had a walk was?  Take a quick photo of each animal.  They each get their own profile and exercise history.  You can track your walk route right on the app which means your tracking your own exercise as well!  How far, how fast and how long you were out is all right there! Even share it right on FB!  then set up a reminder to make sure you don't miss your next activity! 

The second app is Purina Pet Health App.  This is a must have for keeping your pet in best health.  Track your vet appointments for each pet as well as health history.  You can even set up and track grooming schedules to keep your pet looking it's best! Again, each pet has their own profile with a little picture of them so you can keep on top of everyone.  

Both apps are free.  I highly encourage you to try them out.  You love your pets but you have a lot going on.  Let Purina Pet Apps help you get some of these things off your mind!
