Safe and natural nasal congestion relief with CLEARinse (giveaway)

It can be a nasty time of year–with all the back-to-school germs and the cold weather. Both of our kids have already been hit with colds and I know we probably aren’t done with them this season. It’s heartbreaking to see your kids sick and it’s worse when there isn’t much you can do to help.

Well here’s something they never told you about becoming a mom…. you’re going to sweat. A LOT. And if you have TWO TODDLERS, like I do? YOU’RE GOING TO SWEAT EVEN MORE.

Not to make myself sound like a sweaty beast or something, but……………….

My interview with Dr. Stork for Women’s Health Month

Last week I met with Dr. Stork (yes, from The Doctors and The Bachelor) to discuss Women’s Health Month and how oral health can affect overall health. What it basically comes down to is preventative care. So many complications can come from poor oral health, let’s just stop them before they start! Take care of those teeth!

A selfie with Dr. Stork, of course!

We met at Walgreens in Chicago for a Crest Pro-Health
