The start to our wedding reception | Sponsored

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for MY M&M’S. I received product samples to facilitate my review and to thank me for my participation.

I mentioned in a previous post about how I’m a candy ambassador. So Sweet. Pun intended. When the doorbell rang I was expecting some household items The Guy ordered online the previous weekend. But there it was in all its glory. My dream come true: a huge bag of candy, delivered at my doorstep.  This is the beginning of planning our wedding reception back home in Newfoundland, towards the end of this summer. Since we planned our wedding in record time: 6 days, we didn’t really invite that many people to witness our vows and the beginning of our marriage.

Last weekend we finally ordered our wedding Thank You cards, all 100 of them for the 20-something people in attendance. Hey, they’re generic and don’t say the date of the wedding on them, so I’m sure we can use them in the future.

As for our wedding reception, The Guy needs to get his arse in gear and figure out if he’s going to do an Ironman this Fall. If he chooses to do so, we’ll have to push our reception to July. If not, back to a day in August/September. Starting to stress! Even though it’s not going to be a huge event, but simply a fun BBQ in my parents back yard with tons of loved one’s. It still gives me butterflies, as I have no idea where to even start.

my mmsHot diggity dang, that’s a huge 5lb bag of candy that we’re going to cart back home. The Guy asked me how I’m doing to do it, which I’m not sure yet. To which he replied “fuel for my biking?” That’s something a triathlete would say, don’t you think? No sir, this will not be wasted while you are on your bike. These candies will be appreciated!

You betcha bottom dollar I gave these M&M’S a taste test as soon as they arrived. No different than any other delicious M&M’S you’ve consumed.Wedding MMs

I ordered them in red, white and gold as those were the colours we had for our wedding decorations. I think those are some classy colours that I won’t get sick of. The yellow colour isn’t what I expected as I was trying to mimic the colours of our Christmas wedding. It wasn’t a pearled golden as shown online. It’s a pure mustard colour. But hey, I think it looks pretty decent.

I’ve come up with a plan on how I’d like these presented as wedding reception favours. Either in gold tins, or in small white patterned paper bags. I mentioned this in my previous M&M’S post but if you want to have them pre-packaged when you order them, you can do so in:

  • Silver Favor Tins
  • Elegant Lace Favor Bags
  • Party Favor Packs
  • Bulk Products

Of course, I chose the bulk order, to get more bang for my buck. MY M&M’S are perfect for all aspects of planning and celebrating a wedding reception. From personalized favours to bridesmaid gifts to using MY M&M’S in wedding decor, the options are nearly endless for adding a special unique touch to the special day. And they ship to CANADA!

Get your underarms ready for summer

I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Dove. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Yup, that’s right you guys — I’m about to talk about my armpits on the blog today! Get ready for it. If you dislike getting rid of your underarm hair, please note this is my opinion. I feel much more comfortable,  and I prefer to have hairless, soft and moisturized underarms, especially when wearing sleeveless tops or tanks.

Now that we’re getting closer to summer, and those tank tops making reappearances I’ve decided to discuss grooming again. Ah, wonderful visual.Selfie-with-underarm

If you’re a long time reader, you know I asked a company if I could review one of their epilators last November. A razor has touched my underarms probably three or four times since then, out of pure laziness and sometimes a little fear. It still hurts to use one of those things, but it’s my preferred method that I reserve only for the underarms. I can’t bare to try it anywhere else.

Epilators helps prevent razor burn, bumps, and the unsightly 5 o’clock shadow that some people get when they shave. I find it best to use more frequently than not. Don’t wait for your hair to grow out. Just do it every couple of days, because if you let those suckers grow, it’s going to hurt yanking them out with the device.

Quick and easy tips to get your underarms summer ready

  • Exfoliate your underarms with a gentle body scrub, or exfoliating mitt
  • Epilate those underarms
  • Follow up with tend skin to prevent ingrown hairs
  • Towel dry, and apply your favourite anti-perspirant/deodorant

Not done here, talking about my underarms, and how I take care of them. I’ve been using Dove go fresh deodorant for as long as I can remember, primarily because I love the cucumber scent, and keeps me dry. But last time, I mixed things up and bought the peach one. It didn’t mix with my body chemistry well, and by the end of the night I felt like I had to apply more to de-stink.

Because I was selected to participate in an influencer program with Mom Central, I was sent two full sized Dove Advanced Care products, which I hadn’t tried. I was interested to see how it would work in comparison to the Go Fresh line.

Dove-Advanced--CareRevive is a fragrance of pomegranate and lemon verbena. While nourished beauty is described as having a floral powdery fragrance with notes of jasmine and rose. The latter, is my favourite.

Do you go through as many steps as I do for your underarm regimen, to keep them soft, and smooth?

Have you ever used Dove products?

What about an epilator?
