GIVEAWAY: Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush: Oral Care for Less

Hello, fellow weekenders. Are you looking to switch to an electric toothbrush or maybe in the market for a replacement? Have we got a great electric toothbrush for you! One that will make you smile brilliantly. The best part, it’s half the price of other electric toothbrushes with the same quality and better features. Say hello to the must-have in oral care, the Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush, created by Founder & President Betty Shah, a 30-yr dental professional. And guess what, one lucky ready will win this amazing ultrasonic electric toothbrush.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

The Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush promises a healthier mouth, improved gum care, whiter teeth, and a 60-day money-back guarantee. There are so many things we love about this electric toothbrush. What are our favorites? The smart timer that lets you know when you move to the other sections of your mouth, and the 5 brush modes (clean, white, massage, gum care, sensitive). Most electric toothbrushes, especially those on a lower price point, do not offer this many modes.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

Why do we love the multiple modes? We love it because we can change modes while we’re brushing. This proved essential because we have a loose tooth that’s not quite ready to be extracted yet; the clean and white modes were both too strong for it so we switched to the sensitive mode for the quadrant of our mouth where our loose tooth was. It must be noted that switching modes restart the smart timer process, so you’ll have to shut it off manually. That, of course, can be done with one push of a button.

Smile Brilliant cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush

You’ll also love its power. As heavy tea drinkers, we appreciate the cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush’s 40,000 vibrations/minute dynamic cleaning action.

Wedding Stress

Wedding Stress: How to Say ‘I Don’t’ to Wedding Planning Stress

Despite the fact that many Americans are waiting longer to get married than they used to, weddings are still very much considered to be a rite of passage for countless couples. That said, this important and exciting life event is also one of the most stressful. In fact, a recent Zola study found that 96% of participants responded that planning a wedding is stressful, with 71% agreeing that planning a wedding is more stressful than other major life events, like buying a house or finding a job. In addition, 86% of respondents suffered from at least three wedding stress-related symptoms — including skin breakouts, headaches, insomnia, hair loss, and loss of sex drive — as a result of wedding planning.

Wedding Stress

Bride Wars: 20th Century Fox

It’s easy to see why. The wedding industry brought in a staggering $72 billion in revenue during 2016, but many young people can scarcely pay for the ceremony due to crippling student loan debts, high costs of living, and unaffordable housing. That, coupled with the pressure to make one’s wedding perfectly Instagrammable and wholly unique for guests, is enough to make planning this special day seem like an insurmountable task.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to relieve some stress throughout the process. While there’s no such thing as a completely stress-free wedding, you’ll reduce the likelihood of an emotional breakdown and may even be able to enjoy your engagement if you follow these tips.

Secure Some Planning Help

Even if you’re incredibly crafty or have a take-charge attitude, the reality is that no one should (or can) do it alone. Those who try may end up suffering the consequences, which can translate to mental or physical health issues, in some cases. For example, more than 37 million people suffer from migraines nationwide — and since migraines are often exacerbated by the stress (e.g., hormonal fluctuations), your wedding might end up being a huge (and literal) headache if you don’t have help. Although hiring a wedding planner may seem like an unnecessary expense, having someone to handle the inevitable hiccups and coordinate all the moving parts can be absolutely priceless for many couples. If it’s simply not realistic for your budgetary constraints, ask trustworthy friends and family to lend a hand when possible. Whatever you do, remember that the big day doesn’t have to rest solely on your shoulders.

Don’t Fall Into the Comparison Trap

It’s easy to work yourself up into a tizzy when you’re constantly feeling like your wedding won’t be good enough. And given our constant involvement on social media, it’s no wonder we’re comparing our lives to others. You may need to consciously remind yourself to stop scrolling on Instagram or browsing through Pinterest and instead focus on what’s really important: the celebration of you and your partner. If you’re worried about whether you’ll receive a lot of likes on a wedding-related post or that your friends will compare your nuptials to that of someone else in your circle, you’re not really thinking about what matters. Those who have trouble shaking themselves out of the comparison cycle should make an effort to unfollow wedding-related accounts, limit screen time, or discourage wedding talk outside of specific timeframes to keep their emotional well-being in check.

Prioritize Your Self-Care Routine

The term “self-care” is often thrown around so much that it’s lost all meaning, but it really is important for betrothed couples in the midst of planning their wedding. Ultimately, self-care can refer to anything that puts your own needs first and feels restorative. For some, that might mean getting regular spa treatments; not only do 92% of people surveyed feel that massage can be effective in reducing pain, but this practice can also have profound effects on one’s mental state. Self-care could also include getting enough sleep, following a nutritious diet, or working out regularly (as only one in three adults receives the recommended amount of physical activity each week). Alternatively, self-care might involve meditation, therapy appointments, house cleaning sessions, time spent outdoors, setting boundaries, abstaining from alcohol use, prioritizing social engagements, or spending quality time with your fiancee.

Only you can define what self-care really means, but whatever it is to you, it’s essential that you make time for it in your schedule. Remember that you’ll be better equipped to handle the challenges of planning a wedding if you tend to your needs consistently. Think of it as preventative maintenance, rather than emergency repair.

Try Out Some CBD Oil

CBD is being touted as a cure-all for virtually everything, from anxiety to chronic pain. For brides and grooms suffering from wedding planning stress, CBD oil might be a viable way to find some relief without engaging in potentially harmful habits. Because CBD doesn’t typically include THC (the part of cannabis known for having psychoactive properties), there’s no risk of dependence or of getting high at all. CBD oil, or even CBD gummies, can be used to reduce pain, ease stress, and restore balance to essential bodily functions such as appetite, sleep, digestion, and mood.

Although more research needs to be done on its benefits (and consumers need to do their homework to make sure they’re buying a high-quality product), there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to support these claims. A recent survey even found that 42% of CBD users said they stopped using traditional medications (including Tylenol or prescription drugs like Vicodin) in favor of CBD, with 80% of participants saying they’ve found CBD products to be “very” or “extremely” effective. If you’ve been curious about CBD and are seeking a more natural way to reduce your wedding planning stress, it’s possible that this could become a healthy part of your routine.

Consider Eloping Instead

Every weekend, an average of 44,230 weddings take place. But if the cost of a wedding or the anxiety associated with the guest list is proving to be too much for you and your beloved, there might be another option that will eliminate planning stress for good. Elopements are becoming more popular as couples try to keep expenses low and focus more on their own special and intimate celebrations. If you’d rather spend money on traveling than a big wedding, hate having all eyes on you, or are feeling pressured to make decisions that don’t align with your vision of your wedding day, you and your soon-to-be spouse may want to elope instead. That way, you can say your vows in relative solitude wherever you wish (whether it be the top of the mountain or city hall) and have total control over every element.

If your family and friends want to celebrate with a big party after the fact, that’s always a possibility (and won’t require you to rent out a big event venue or spend several thousand dollars). When money or family issues seem to be the source of your wedding stress, an elopement might be the right move.

Whatever your wedding style, budgetary constraints, or personal challenges, there are ways to reduce your stress throughout the planning process. By keeping these tips in mind, you may be able to look forward to your wedding and enjoy putting everything together, rather than experiencing an impending sense of doom every time you sit down to go over the guest list.

Labotica True Nature Sheet Masks

Labotica True Nature Masks by Leaders Cosmetics

We recently read an article about a study from the World Health Organization that found microplastics in drinking water. Another article that found microplastics in the air and in raindrops. As you can imagine, a buildup of microplastics in our system can be detrimental to our bodies. So, of course, we must be a bit more discerning about what we put in and on our bodies. Since skincare products are absorbed into the skin, we started paying more attention to beauty products. We were recently introduced to the Labotica True Nature masks by Leaders Cosmetics, a range of environmentally-friendly, hypoallergenic sheet masks made with natural organic ingredients.

Labotica True Nature Sheet Masks

Every formulation of Leaders Cosmetics’ Korean sheet masks is developed by a group of 15 leading dermatologists; their goal is to provide pure, natural and effective skincare.

Do Self-Care Differently: Affordable Vibrators From A Breakout Company

The past few years have seen a strong emphasis on the importance of self-care for your overall wellbeing. Many ladies, in particular, have adopted mantras of taking care of themselves before being able to take care of others and saying no when people expect them to be superwoman. While the stereotypical image of self-care is face masks for your skin, delicious food for your body, and plenty of me-time for your mind, there is another sector of wellness self-care can cover: sexual pleasure.

The sex toy industry has been blossoming in the same years that self-care has come into focus. There are plenty of companies with high-end luxury devices promising consumers endless pleasure on their own or with a partner. These promises, however, often come with a high price tag.

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

That’s where PlusOne from Clio comes into the picture. PlusOne is the self-proclaimed first line of sexual wellness devices that are high-quality, affordable, and available for purchase at major retailers across the United States. Clio, a small company that started out making products for grooming and nail care, wants the world of sexual wellness to be accessible to everyone. Women and men at any income level can bring a PlusOne product into their bedroom, but what exactly do these devices look like and how do they really tie into self-care?

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

What do PlusOne products give you?

The four core products from PlusOne are a vibrating bullet, a personal massager, a vibrating ring, and a dual vibrating massager. The vibrating bullet has already made waves in the industry and onto quite a few listicles because of its ease and price. At just $10, the vibrating bullet is a great introductory vibrator for anyone who hasn’t used or bought one before. It’s extremely quiet and very compact at just three inches long, but it is just as effective as its larger counterparts on the market.

The PlusOne vibrating ring is made for men to use or a man and his partner to use together in the bedroom for ultimate pleasure. When the CDC recommends 30 minutes of aerobic exercise for five days of the week, we’re much too quick to think of pain rather than pleasure, but this device can give you and your partner a fun workout for up to two hours. Also offering up to two hours of activity on a single charge, the PlusOne Dual Vibrating Massager is in the rabbit design that many sexual wellness devices use. This design allows for ultimate versatility while satisfying almost any desire on your own.

The PlusOne Personal Massager is a small vibrating wand and may not look as advanced as the dual massager or the ring, but its simple design is effective. No matter where you want to work out a kink in your body, this powerful massager is sure to activate the two to four million sweat glands in the average person’s body. Its multiuse design also makes it perfect for use with a partner, if that’s where your pleasure takes you.

All of their products have 10 different vibration settings and are waterproof, allowing you to enjoy your bubble bath all in the name of self-care. The products are all easy to clean and ultra-hygienic. While common plastics such as polyethylene — which fills our world at an annual global production of about 80 million tons — include small bits of petroleum, PlusOne products are made of smooth, body-safe silicone. With an incredibly soft exterior, you can rest assured that your body is safe while you get your pleasure.

Self-Care: PlusOne from Clio

How do you buy PlusOne devices?

If this is a form of self-care you can happily get into, you’re in luck. Clio started selling their adult products in about 4,300 Walmart stores across the country in October of last year. The only states in which you won’t find them on Walmart shelves are Virginia and Alabama, which have laws restricting the sale of sexual wellness devices.

Prior to PlusOne, Walmart already sold vibrators from Trojan, Durex, and Lifestyles. However, PlusOne products have a much more high-end design and the features mentioned above. These products represent a bigger dive into the world of sex toys for the nation’s largest retailer, which is planning to add four more PlusOne products to its inventory this August.

The move to shelves of popular retailers is a big one for vibrators. They started in mail-order catalogs about 45 years ago and have more recently had a comfortable home online. However, buying any products in person has become preferable for many consumers, as nearly 50% of Internet users in the U.S. said they were avoiding online activities due to privacy and security concerns in 2018. Now, the Internet-wary can find sex toys in small sex shops as well as big-box stores.

Major retailer Target has also been selling PlusOne products since this past spring. For a store famous for roping consumers into buying many more items than they intended to when they walked through the doors, adding affordable and high-quality vibrators makes sense. As over 50% of consumers say they will make additional purchases from a brand that uses premium retail packaging, PlusOne is certainly able to rope in wandering Target customers with its eye-catching multicolor package design. For those not afraid of purchasing goods on the Internet, PlusOne devices are also available on Amazon in the same bold packaging.

With all of these buying options and enticing features, you just may need to take a little time for yourself with a PlusOne product. Whether it’s your first vibrator or an addition to your current collection, you’re sure to love its easy aesthetic and powerful punch. After all, it’s self-care and you deserve to treat yourself.
