Mumwrites + Smile Brilliant! Professional Teeth Whitening System Giveaway {Open Worldwide}

I was contacted by Smile Brilliant awhile back to feature a review of their Professional Teeth Whitening System on the blog and while I am in the process of waiting for my Teeth Whitening trays to finally give their product a road test, I decided to hold this giveaway first, so that one lucky mum will also get a chance to experience the benefits of this award-winning product, and also because Mother’s Day is here!  🙂

Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening System in a nutshell

Teeth whitening can be quite a nasty business and even when we might be born with a perfect set of gleaming pearly whites, years of drinking coffee and other dark beverages that leave unsightly stain on our teeth over the years, among other factors make it very difficult to keep those teeth shiny white. This is most probably the main reasons why there are many teeth whitening products available in the market today. Each promising to bring back the shine and the white in our teeth. Among these products are whitening strips, whitening pens and lights, and in-office power bleaching.

Of course, not all teeth whitening products are created equal. Some might just be priced too steep for our budget to afford, others might give discomfort during application that might put us off and decide against continuing the use of the product. And then, there are some others that are entirely ineffective at all!

Joining The MBP + FoodPanda Give One, Get One Contest

giveaway alert, giveaways

I was nominated by sis Dorry of Rambles of a Mom to the Mommy Bloggers Philippines {MBP} and FoodPanda Give One, Get One Contest and here are my answers to her questions:

  • It is my son who inspires me to write. The hope that one day he will read everything I wrote and hopefully be inspired to follow the same trail is what keeps me going. My parents, knowing they will have doted about my accomplishments however trivial they may be, also inspire me to continue with my craft. Lastly, the hope that I might be able to inspire others is also something that fuels my passion for writing.
  • I always say that my son is the best gift that I have ever received and no matter how challenging being a parent and a mother might be at times, I will always consider my little man my best.gift.ever!
  • If I could ask you sis Dorry, here is my question for you: What are the simple yet effective things you do to de-stress and relax, especially when motherhood is becoming way too taxing?

Now, it is my turn to nominate another blogger and I choose a blogger that I look up to, who also happens to be a dear friend, mum Ruby Caberte of Eats Good To Wander. Here are my questions for her:

  • What piece of advice can you give to those who aspire to be a work-from-home-mum?
  • If you can give any tips to newbie and aspiring bloggers, what will it be?
  • Which Funky Pop character are you planning to get next?  :laugh:

If you are a blogger, you can also nominate your favorite bloggers to this challenge and get a chance to be nominated, as well. Check out the mechanics here.

The Castle Blues Quake Virtual Book Tour

giveaways, announcement, giveaway alert, books, books for children

I am very excited to be part of Linda Covella’s The Castle Blues Quake Virtual Book Tour {and if you will read all the way through the end, you will find a giveaway surprise waiting just for you :)}. This tour is happening from the 14th to the 24th of October. A number of bloggers are participating in this, too, so make sure to visit their respective blogs {I have a linky towards the end of the post for your convenience}. This sure looks like an exciting and interesting read, and very timely, too, as Halloween is just right around the corner. Before moving on, do read this lovely message Linda made for all you Mumwrites readers:

Creativity from Outside the Box

First, I want to thank Mumwrites for having me on this blog and for being a part of my Castle Blues Quake blog tour. And thank you to the readers for stopping by!

On this tour, I’ve been thinking a lot about creativity.

To really be creative, to really produce something that’s uniquely “you,” you must think outside the box. There are several things you can do to help yourself think beyond what’s typical:

  • Don’t make assumptions. Don’t take something for granted. Rather, question what is commonly known about whatever it is you’re working on.
  • Look at it from a different angle. This can be figuratively or literally. If you’re working on a physical project—a sculpture or an invention, for instance—walk around it, turn it over, add or remove something. In writing, experiment with different voices. Rewrite a scene from another character’s POV. If you’ve created an outline for your story, try deviating from what you’ve planned, whether with a character’s reaction or with the plot.
  • Step away from your project. Take a walk or eventake a few days off. Observe things around you, but let yourself and your mind relax. It’s amazing how new ideas can come to you when you aren’t immersed in the details of your work.
  • Make sure to break up your routine on a daily basis. When you’re in a rut, your mind gets into one as well.
  • Talk with others about your project, even those who may not be in the same field. Voicing your ideas helps free up your mind, and ideas or questions from your listeners can trigger new ideas.
  • Take a good look at your inner self. What beliefs, inhibitions, tensions are keeping you from exploring new ideas? Talk to others or read about ideas that are contrary to your own.

Finally, and I believe this may be the most important:

  • Keep an open mind. Be willing to change.

Is it difficult for you to “think outside the box”? Do you have any techniques that work for you?
