The Long-Term Benefits of Teaching Kids Good Dental Habits

This is a sponsored post.


Most parents recognize the importance of teaching their kids to brush their teeth at least twice a day. They know that this can help to prevent their children from getting cavities. Many parents are discovering that there are several other benefits of teaching their kids how to maintain the health of their teeth. Check out a few examples.



Establishing a Lifetime Habit

When parents teach their kids about brushing their teeth each day, they are helping their children to establish a long-term habit. Young children who are taught to brush their teeth at least twice a day are more likely to continue the habit into their teen years and beyond. Kids who brush and floss their teeth everyday are also more likely to continue to see their dentist each year as they grow older. This is especially true if their parents are practicing healthy dental habits and seeing their dentist on a regular basis for checkups. Kool Smiles is one example of a dentist’s office dedicated to teaching kids the importance of practicing good dental habits.

Beautiful and Ethically Sourced Bouquets from a Volcano

Product was given to me from The Bouqs in order to post my honest opinion.




I love the way that fresh flowers smell in my home. I don’t buy them often, but when I do, I make sure that they are ethically farmed and delivered. I was excited to hear about The Bouqs Company, an online flower company that gets all their flowers from a volcano in South America (and some from California). The flowers are sourced from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers.


The Bouqs only cuts flowers when they are ordered and they offer a direct-from-the-farm supply chain.  They use cold storage for only 4 days from the Volcano, and not at all from any flowers from California, resulting in a lot of energy savings. Other companies try to keep flowers cold for up to 2 weeks, resulting in a lot of wasted energy.

Product was given to me from Conscious Box in order to post my honest opinion.



I know I am not alone in this, but I love trying new products before committing to them. Samples not only give you a good idea of how some products actually work for you, they are fun to try and work great as travel products. I use only natural products on my body and in my home, but with the market today, there are so many products to try. Samples are the best way to narrow down what you like and what you don’t like.

Let Your Kid Explore the Universe with a Space Scouts Monthly Subscription

Product was given to me by Space Scouts in order to post my honest opinion.


My son is fascinated by space right now. He loves learning about the solar system and everything that it involves. We recently got replicas of the planets and have them hanging in our kid’s room. My husband even got creative and distanced them correctly from the sun and each other to give my kids the idea of how it is really set up in our solar system.


Space Scouts

Since my son loves science and space, I knew he would enjoy Space Scouts, a monthly subscription club for kids. Each month your child will explore a new place in space – stepping into the worlds of space exploration, space science, and astronomy.  Space Scouts is designed to engage your child in fun learning activities, hands-on discovery, and exciting challenges.
