April Faves

I have a little (semi-annoying) housekeeping item to talk about before I get into this month's favorite products. You see those google ads over there on the right hand side of this page? Those ads support my love of blogging, so if you'll just throw me a bone and click on those when you visit my blog that would be fantastic! If yall start clicking, I'll maybe be able to do more frequent "favorites" posts. (I'm sure I'll do them regardless ... but just click!!)

Sorry for that -- I know it is annoying.

Okay, so I haven't done a 'favorites' post in a couple of months now so this is long overdue. I have been blogging about more serious topics (mainly because someone accused me of being 'overcome by consumerism') but now I think its time to switch it up! These are some of my most recent discoveries.

Tide Total Care

I think I've mentioned this before, but I am a total sucker to a good ad campaign. Tide claims that washing your clothes with their Total Care product will help to prevent your clothing against the 7 signs of aging. I have mixed emotions on that, but mostly I believe that P&G invented a new formula which allows slightly higher profit margins than the rest of their line and the marketing department decided to come up with a convincing ad campaign so they could sell it. I needed detergent, so I of course picked up a bottle.

I can't and won't speak to their claim that it protects clothes against aging. Maybe that is true, maybe it isn't. But the stuff SMELLS FANTASTIC! It honestly doesn't smell all that great in the container, but once you pull your clothes out of the wash .... ahhhh! So fresh and so clean.

Thomas Strawberry Bagels

These were a bit of an impulse purchase the other day at the grocery store, but definitely a good one! I haven't noticed these before so they may or may not be new but they are delicious! I toasted one this morning and put a little cream cheese on top ... they were fabulous.

Crest Pro-Health Night Toothpaste
Mamacita recommended this one to me. At first I was skeptical because I am a stickler for making sure that any toothpaste I use has the ADA seal of approval and sometimes these 'weird' toothpastes do not (even if they are Crest or Colgate). Anyway, I tried it and it is great! It has these little notsurewhattocallthem bubbles in with the paste that kinda massage your gums and really scrub your teeth. You really do get that just-left-the-dentist clean feeling after using it! I'm not quite sure why it is recommended for night use, but I use it day or night.

Coffee-Mate Italian Sweet Cream

Another one my mom introduced me to! (She's a savvy shopper, I tell you) If you are like me and like your coffee sweetened with a little flavored cream, this is a must try! I don't think it comes sugar free or fat free, but I promise its worth it.

And don't forget .... click on my ads!!

I think we were told in elementary school health class to look for the ADA logo on toothpaste. I do the same thing!

If you go to coffee-mate.com you can print out coupons for you favorite creamer. We go through a few lg bottles a month easy. Thanks for the recommendation.
