Time for a little confession - I have some not so whitening vices.  Yes, it is true!  Every day I consume both coffee and diet soda - my smile must hate me.  Recently, I have been asked to be on multiple morning news T.V. segments and now I am trying to find the perfect way to whiten my teeth so I am camera ready.  I never really noticed how much my coffee and diet soda drinking made my white teeth not so white anymore.

I knew I needed something fast and something that worked so when I saw the new Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste I was ready to start working on that smile again.  The new Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste will have your teeth whiter in just 3 days*!  Now that is a timeline I can work with and it will do this just by you brushing your teeth.  No extra work - the perfect beauty tip.

I would love to say that I will give up these not so whitening vices but that is not happening right now.  My life is busy; frankly my husband is lucky I remember to brush my teeth every day.  Having a full time job, being a mom and rocking this blogging thing really cuts into my sleeping and resting so when I need to get through the day I do reach for those drinks but now that I have the Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste I do not have to be self conscience about those PR emails asking me to be on live T.V. anymore.  

A couple weeks ago, I was asked to be on Fox 21 News in Colorado Springs, as I was freaking out and trying to figure out what to wear, I looked in the mirror and decided I needed to work on that smile - yikes!  

The best part of this discovery is that now I can add the whitening power to my T.V. prep and unlike other whitening toothpastes, Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste contains the professionally recommended ingredient hydrogen peroxide Vs Optic White® Sparkling Mint® but you are not taking a trip to see your dentist.  You are literally taking the vices right off of your teeth!  

By Day Two I was sold.  It was working, and another confession - I was still drinking my coffee and diet soda as I was preparing for my T.V. segment.   

For anyone what was wondering, I decided on a nice navy blue shirt and black pants for my segment.  After seeing myself on screen I really believe it was the best decision.  It was flattering and not overly distracting.  

Well hello white teeth and T.V. ready smile!!  Three days and boom, those vices are gone...well the evidence on my teeth at least.  This Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste is now a staple in my beauty routine.  No more self conscience smiles - I am ready to have people look at my smile on T.V. and in real life; all while enjoying my caffeine!!

My first Live T.V. segment went awesome and now I am ready for my next one.

Here are a few Ready for Live T.V.  Tips I wanted to share:

1.  Wear something you are comfortable in.  

2.  Wear a neutral top, nothing with a crazy distracting pattern. 

3.  Do your hair and make-up like normal, do not go over done.  

4.  Breath!!  For the love of god BREATH when speaking.  

5.  Talk with your hands, do not look at the camera and smile!


Thankfully, now that I have this great beauty product I have no problem smiling big on screen!

I am so thankful for this toothpaste and honestly feel a lot more confident when speaking with people and the idea of being on T.V.  I know that a lot of us moms sometimes forget to take care of ourselves and this is a great way to take a step towards a better whiter smile.  First impressions are very important, so make sure you let your smile do some work for you with the help of Colgate® Optic White® Express White Toothpaste.
