Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste - REVIEW

My family and I have been making the effort to use more natural and organic products, both in the foods we eat and in the personal care products we use. While cost and availability have been a factor, we try to buy natural and organic when we can.

We recently made the move to trying natural toothpaste. We had been somewhat hesitant in the past to making the switch to natural toothpaste. Other brands that we had tried before either didn't taste good or they just didn't leave our teeth feeling clean or fresh at all.

Thanks to Moms Meet, we were sent several varieties of Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpaste. The toothpaste offers a different approach to ingredients. It's free from harmful ingredients that are commonly found in other toothpastes, such as fluoride, carrageenan and sodium lauryl sulfate. Instead, Himalaya Botanique Complete Care Toothpastes uses all natural ingredients to help fight plaque, freshen breathe and whiten and brighten teeth.

Exploring D.C. With Urban Adventure Quest

We don't live very far from Washington, D.C. -- it's about a 45 minute drive from our house to downtown D.C. Yet, we hardly ever venture into the city. I think it had been probably over a year since I was last in D.C. 

This past weekend, we had a chance to play tourists and go on a scavenger hunt around Washington, D.C., using Urban Adventure Quest. They offer fun scavenger hunt adventures that you can complete with your family and/or friends.  Guided from any smartphone, teams make their way among well known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. You can play anytime during daylight hours and start when you want and play at your pace. They have 54 Quests to choose from in many major cities.

Celebrate #NationalSunglassesDay on June 27

I don't post very often about my job. But, as a practicing optometrist, one thing I make sure to discuss with all my patients is the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect eyes from UV exposure. Long term exposure to UV radiation can accelerate the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

Annually, The Vision Council hosts National Sunglasses Day on June 27 to remind people to wear sunglasses whenever they're outside. To celebrate, they encourage you to post a #SunglassSelfie of yourself in sunglasses to your favorite social media channel(s) and to include the #NationalSunglassesDay.

Revlon Youth FX - REVIEW

DISCLOSURE: I received free samples from Crowdtap for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I turn 40 next year, which is such a scary thought! And while I'm fortunate to look younger than I am, I know that it won't last forever. The past few years, I've added more products to my daily skincare routine to try and delay any signs of aging.

I recently had the chance to try the Youth FX system from Revlon. It consists of a primer for your forehead, a primer for your face and neck, a concealer and a foundation.

I've lived in the DC area pretty much my whole life.  And yet, there are so many places in the area that I've never been to.  I've always wanted to take the time to just play tourist and explore.  So many people come to DC to visit the monuments and museums and I've probably only seen a handful of them.

I recently discovered a fun way to explore the city.  Urban Adventure Quest gives you a chance to turn your favorite city into a giant game board.  They offer fun scavenger hunt adventures that you can complete with your family and/or friends.  Guided from any smart phone, teams make their way among well known and overlooked gems of the city, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Play anytime during daylight hours. Start when you want and play at your pace.
