I was given a free sample for this review, all opinions are my own. I am not a doctor so any claims in this post should be treated as my opinion. Always check with your doctor if you have any concerns or questions.
We we moved to Colorado, I went 4 years without going to the dentist. I had major jaw surgery when I was 20 so I only trusted my dentist back in Louisiana to work on my teeth. With all the rearrangement of my mouth, it’s harder to get my mouth numb and I have so many screws, it sets off airport security!
Well when I finally went to the Dentist 2 years ago, I had a mouth full of problems. 4 crowns, 2 extremely diffuclt root canals that were so special they had to be done by a specialist. After all that mayhem, I vowed to take extra care of my teeth from now on and so I didn’t owe a small fortune to my dentist.
Well this past dentist visit I had zero cavities. Judge me all you want but I cried. I have NEVER, in my entire life, not had any cavities at a dentist visit and I am 33! However a problem rose up. Apparently I had a gum infection. Gross right?! They said it actually probably had nothing to do with how well I brushed my teeth because it looked like I had been doing a good job, just a little bad luck and some yucky germs.
Every since then I have been on a charcoal kick. As soon as I got out of the dentist, I took 2 of my activated charcoal pills so of any of the infection traveled out of my mouth, the charcoal would bind to it and take it out of my body while preventing it from absorbing into my body.
But another thing I am doing is using activated charcoal toothpaste. I started using My Magic Mud activated charcoal toothpaste. My Magic Mud Whitening Toothpaste is the first toothpaste to combine activated coconut shell charcoal and bentonite clay. It is made with smart and wholesome ingredients and is fluoride-free, non-GMO, and Natural Cosmetics Standard certified.
Straight from their site: “Activated charcoal removes plaque, toxins that cause bad breath, and teeth stains through a process called adsorption where these unwanted elements adhere to the porous surface of the charcoal. The result is a dentist-like clean, and a brighter and whiter smile!”
That is exactly what I was looking for in a toothpaste. Not only the health and toxin fighting elements but also something to help whiten my teeth!

I am obsessed with this water bottle! It’s a reusable, refillable and BPA-free bottle that uses active Binchotan charcoal, a 500-year-old water filtration method from Japan. It makes your tap water taste great by absorbing impurities such as chlorine, then releases minerals – calcium, iron etc. – back into your water.
I started working at my kid’s school last week and they think this water bottle is so cool. About every kid asked me why is there s black stick in my water bottle 😉
It’s called the Eau Good by Black+Blum. It comes in 6 different colors and is great for kids and adults. We live in a well at our house and believe we have great drinking water but to me, I still like to drink filtered water. The charcoal stick has a six-month lifespan when recharged (boiled for 10 minutes) after three months use. This is longer than other products like this on the market.
And I just love the way it looks. It hold a lot of water and just looks cool!
It’s been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, New York Times, London Evening Standard, Elle Decoration, Livingetc, Treehugger, Heat Magazine, Metro, Core 77, You Magazine, Shape.com, Women’s Health, and more!

The holidays are creeping up on us in a hurry…are you ready?! I am pretty sure I won’t be able to host a holiday party until I get some upgrades in my kitchen like some LG Appliances from Best Buy. When you have a lot of people over for a meal, you need the best appliances to make everything go smooth.
You can count on the expert service from Best Buy to find you the right LG appliances at an unbeatable price. This refrigerator features a sleek glass panel that illuminates with two quick knocks on the right-hand refrigerator door, letting you see inside the easy-access compartment without ever opening the door. How cool is that?!
Can I tell you how many times I have dreamed of a double oven?! One of the things that sold me on the house we are currently in is the double oven. Turns out when we moved in, I mistook the double over for an oven and microwave. Bummer! I double oven would come in so handy especially for a meal as big as Thanksgiving or Christmas!
I could see myself cooking a restaurant quality feast in a kitchen like this LG kitchen!
