Make and Take Smoothies Quickly with The Tribest Personal Blender

My daughters love it when I make them smoothies.  No matter the season, they are always up for the cool, nutritious drinks I prepare them. Only trouble is, sometimes I’m not inclined to clean up our big blender for just two smoothies. And if I make a batch ahead of time, the consistency is off by the time they ask for another smoothie. That’s why I was so excited when I was approached by Tribest, who asked if they could send me a free Mason jar personal blender set to try and share my thoughts here with you. All opinions are my own.

How Confident is Your Smile? #InvisalignBeConfident #sponsored

How Confident is Your Smile? #InvisalignBeConfident #sponsored
Thanks to Invisalign® for inspiring this discussion on confidence and self improvement.  
This is a sponsored post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

My mother always said that a great smile was the best accessory a woman could own.  While I dismissed this notion in my youth, I've come to appreciate that, indeed, smiles can brighten up the most drab outfit or dreariest day!

A well-fitted outfit, a comfortably cute pair of shoes, a fresh coat of trendy nail polish and a lovely piece of jewelry all help boost my self-confidence, but I rely more on my smile to tell the world who I am and how I want to take on each moment with a positive attitude.  I try to put on my best smile often, not just for photographs, but every morning when I wake up to greet the day.  We certainly can't always smile in every situation, nor should we, but when we do it says so much about the person bearing it.
