Smile Brilliant LED Kit #Review and #Giveaway! (U.S./CAN) Ends 10/26 (Rafflecopter)

Smile Brilliant is a Teething Whitening Kit to help you whiten and brighten your teeth at home, and at a more reasonable cost then having it done at your dentist office!

I recently had a tooth knocked out by my two year old daughter. It was a front tooth, and I had to have a retainer made with one tooth in it and wear it for almost five weeks until the hole healed where the tooth was. Then I had to go in and have the two teeth on either side of my hole fixed so that temporary caps could be put on, then go back to the dentist a third time to have a bridge put in, in the front of my mouth! This was not fun by any means.

Never let your kids sit in front of you with their backs towards you if they are extremely stubborn. All it took for that to happen was for my two year old daughter to push up on her feet to push her body backwards into my face, along with her hard head, and CRACK went my tooth! It took my tooth a few days before it fell out. She basically head butted me, but backwards! So I can't use this kit for the top row of my teeth, but it worked great on the bottom row!

The Smile Brilliant kit was very easy to use, and twenty minutes goes by super quick when your watching a television show in the evening, and I have three small children!

Check out the video below about how easy Smile Brilliant's kits are to use:

I was sad to learn that Smile Brilliant doesn't sell the small LED kits anymore. As they Tray kits work really well and it helps to whiten your teeth better when you have an actual mold of your own teeth!

VeggieTales: Beauty and the Beet! #Review #Giveaway (2 Winners!) (U.S.) Ends 10/20 (Rafflecopter)

Mirabell (Kellie Pickler) first meets Finigan Beet when her daddy, aka Larry the Cucumber, eats a chocolate rose. The Beet comes down the stair and snaps at him for eating his chocolate Rose. Then the VeggieTones says that they can't afford to pay for a room, but they will work off their bill in any way possible.

It turns out that the hotel where the VeggieTones bus stops at, needs some new hotel entertainment! The VeggieTones sing on the stage for one of the hotel guests, and they now have to sing at night, and clean the hotel during the day.

Mirabell goes to serve dinner to Mr. Beet and suggests giving him singing lessons because it turns out, he's a big oprah music fan.

Silly Songs with Larry was about his great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandparents and Macaroni! So hilarious! We all got into saying the great, great, great, great.... parts!

We especially loved the food fight in the kitchen with Bob the Tomato and the band, aka the French Peas. The music lessons with Mirabell and Mr. Beet were cute. Mr. Beet started to get into it and give singing a try with her. They were so loud, that most everyone in the hotel heard them.

I can't tell you more than that, because it would ruin the story! The lesson of VeggieTales: Beauty and the Beet is Unconditional Love. This is one of my favorite VeggieTales movies ever!

VeggieTales: Beauty and the Beet will be available for purchase Today at your local Christian Store OR available for purchase everywhere on Tuesday, October 14th! You can also pre-order your copy on They have some pretty cool package deals with stickers, Beauty and the Beet movie Soundtrack, and more! For free shipping, use code "BEAUTY" when you check out!

Go to for some FREE coloring pages and more!

At under their Activities section, there is even a Free Downloadable/Printable VeggieTales movie night pack, complete with invitations, signs, and more! Scroll to the bottom of the page for this pack, so awesome!
