"TheraBreath products are the result of over 10 years of medical and dental research by the World's Recognized Bad Breath Expert, Dr. Harold Katz. Designed to stop bad breath, dry mouth, and taste disorders."- www.therabreath.com

Whether your bad breath come and go mainly because of the foods you eat, morning breath, or oral problems such as cavities; Therabreath oral products can be that dependable fresh breath product that you need. I had come to depend on my regular toothpaste and mouthwash but lately they have just not been cutting it.  While searching online for any home remedy solutions to add to my oral routine, I came across Therabreath being listed in google search menu and decided to look thoroughly into the product line.  Their site is so informative as well as their blog. Their product line is so multifaceted for solutions such as canker sores to dry mouth and used by a lot of celebrities (check out the coverage of the Golden Globes).  I suffer from dry mouth and was elated to try some products from the product line.  I tried the TheraBreath Toothpaste (there are 3 other toothpaste formulas in the product line), TheraBreath Oral Rinse (there are 5 other formulas) and the TheraBreath Mouth Wetting Lozenges.  There are even pet products.  I also received a host of money saving offers to use for future purchases. TheraBreath can be found at over 90 national and local retail and drug store chains (Not all stores carry all TheraBreath products) or by visiting www.therabreath.com.

When I read the directions for the toothpaste, I thought "apply to a dry brush!", what is that all about. I am so custom to wetting my brush with water before brushing but I followed the directions. I used the products twice a day as recommended. After brushing for the recommended time of 2 minutes, my mouth actually felt like it was refreshed totally without a trace of my regular toothpaste taste or sometimes one may even still have hints of food or other flavors on your taste buds. There was no foaming action and it felt awkward at first impressions but after reading from the TheraBreath page on how that “sodium lauryl sulfate” (soapy agent or foam in many other market toothpastes) actually caused canker sores.  I don't suffer from those a lot but it was a wake up call to learn that information. 
The Therabreath toothpaste has a clear color with little foaming action but has a slight tingling feel while brushing. 

TheraBreath oral rinse was twice as refreshing with no overwhelming taste or alcohol. A smooth mouthwash perfect for gargling.  A clear liquid with no hint of past mouth flavors inside my mouth or tastebuds. The mouth wetting lozenges are small, compact, and discreet but pack a load of confidence when keeping your assurance your have fresh breath. 

Introduce others to TheraBreath by sending a virtual breath mint and enter the monthly giveaway. We all may tend to worry about bad breath at some point for reasons such as professional meetups, daily face to face interaction, or first chance meetings.  With all these events and more, I say give Therabreath a chance and have the assurance throughout the day that you are rocking your best fresh breath!

Samsung Focus Flash Windows Phone Giveaway @thedivinemissmommy

Recently I received a windows phone for product testing and after testing I was able to keep it. So I had the phone for a whole year. It had a year warranty and everything on it. Well one day, I left my truck running while going into the store for a few minutes. The television, radio, lights, and my phone was on the charger. I came out of the store in about 10 minutes and low and behold my vehicle would not start. I don't know if I left it running or I just left the keys in it to keep all the stuff going because my daughter was watching a dvd. After that mishap, my windows phone would not charge every again. I don't know what happen. I thought it was the battery or maybe it had a surge.This happened like 6 days after the warranty expired. I don't know and I didn't worry about it since the phone was free and I had my old phone still as a spare. I have been trying to win a phone every since because I do not want another contract and I want another windows phone.

This is the best phone giveaway I have seen.

With all the news headlines surrounding our youth and how they somehow for one way or the other fail to find a way to cope with the stress and the changing atmosphere of becoming or being a teen, of course suicide is on the rise. Suicide is one of the leading cause of death for hundreds of thousands of people. This is especially close to me because being a teen is suppose to be a rewarding and very good experimental time of life for everyone. To see many of our youth, cutting their lives short because of the challenges and seeing many of our youth being problems for their peers is very disturbing. 

I often think of suicide as the silent killer. It can come from a variety of directions- at home, at school, on the job, in their social life, in society, and in general. Positive experiences and fulfilling relationships help lower the risk factor for suicide. Having few of those will put a youth at greater risk. Often times, we as adults say  "They are just going through a phase". That may be true but in this day and age, we need to look a little closer and dig a little deeper. We should not let their fear (most often leading to angry outbursts toward us) stop us from offering encouragement and help. Help them open up. Be patient with them. Help them with their self esteem by talking to them about appreciating any uniqueness they may have.

So do you want to help a teen you know who may need help with dealing with the stress of teenagerism (that is what I call that particular time in life).

Well here are some prizes for you to give to a youth:

(1) THE DIARY DECK- is a sample of writings about everything from body image to drugs, sexuality, friendship, and stress. Each card includes one entry and three thought provoking questions about its topic. It also includes a mini journal filled with guided questions to get teens started on a diary of their own.

(2) My Extreme Commitment- Is Living Drug And Alcohol Free! Glow and Flashing Lights Necklace & a 101 Things To Do Instead of Drugs bookmark

(3) A Green "Smile" Bobble Head Pin

And for you the winner: a Preventing Suicide- How you can help pamphlet with great information for you and to share with others & a slap watch (for taking the TIME to enter this giveaway)!

Disclosure: All of the items will be provided by me and shipped by me! Items were not provided to me by any sponsor or the above mentioned brands. Color of slap watch will be selected at random. Bobble head pin and glow necklace will differ slightly from the above photos. This is an informational post with my views and opinions and these views and opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.. I have not nor will not receive any compensation for this post from any sponsors or any sort. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
