{Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen | Review}

I am back with another review. Courtesy of Influenster, I have been testing out a new product from Colgate for the last two weeks. As a part of their Optic White line, Colgate has created a toothbrush with a built-in whitening pen which is advertised to give you whiter teeth in 2 days. The pen clicks into the base of the toothbrush which makes for the prefect traveling item. I must say, I am not the biggest fan of the bristles on the toothbrush but after two weeks, you get used to it. The whiten pen is quick and easy to use, however the applicator doesn't apply the gel as evenly as it could... a quick pat of your finger solves any issue though. Overall, it definitely took a little longer that the advertised 2 days but I found the combination of the toothbrush and whitening pen (and the mini optic white toothpaste included in the Influenster box) worked for me.

{2014: _________ for Lent}

Over the past few weeks, I've really been thinking about Lent, what I should being doing with my time and what I'm actually spending my time on. Did I hear you ask, "what am I doing with the majority of my time?" Shock, horror! I'm on the internet. Facebook, Bloglovin, Pinterest, shopping... the list goes on and on. However, the majority of my time gets sucked into my subscription/news feeds on YouTube and Twitter. 

Kind of needless to say, I am giving up YouTube and Twitter for Lent.
So, here's to breaking some time-consuming habits this season.
