My Christmas Wish List 2014

posted by Momo Fali on December 5, 2014

All I want for Christmas is a major life shift, world peace, the end to systemic discrimination, and endless love, but since I can’t have those things, here’s my real wishlist. Oh, wait. I can’t have these things either. Darn the price tags!

1. iPhone 6

I currently have a 4s, which is the equivalent of a flip-phone. I also have man-hands, which makes sending emails dangerous on a small screen. Typos-R-Us.

Isn’t she lovely?

2. Cuff

This smart jewelry isn’t actually available yet, but it can be pre-ordered! I want this in ALL the ways. It’s an activity tracker, it notifies you when you’re receiving an important call or text (even if your phone is in your purse) and it’s an emergency notification system in case you fall and can’t get up! And, it comes in lots of pretty styles!

3. Toms

These. Because they’re high-tops. And, because they’re blue, suede shoes. Elvis wants me to have them. Plus, for every pair of Toms shoes you buy, they donate a pair to a person in need. Bonus!

4. Olay Advanced Cleansing System

Because I’m 43 and still get breakouts and everyone I know who has one swears by it. Everyone I know wouldn’t lie! Right? RIGHT? Excuse me while I sign the deed on this swampland in Jersey.

olay5. North Face

*swoon* This long parka is my dream coat. I work-out five days a week, sometimes six, and I’m often trotting about town in running tights. My son is always the last kid to exit the building at school pick-up. My butt gets cold and unless I’m in the gym or out for a run, I’d like to keep it covered. Thankyouverymuch.

north faceSo there! You can get me everything on my wish list for about $650. Get to shoppin’!

Sensitive Teeth? Get Relief with Crest Sensi-Stop Strips

posted by Momo Fali on September 19, 2014

This is a sponsored post written in partnership with One2One Network and Crest.

Have you ever bitten into an ice cream bar and felt searing pain in your teeth? How about feeling like you’re being stabbed when you drink hot coffee, eat tomatoes or something sweet? If not, you’re lucky, and if you don’t, that doesn’t mean you never will.

Some 30 million households suffer from sensitive teeth which is caused by exposed dental tubules (microscopic holes) which can be caused by overbrushing or receding gums. The exposed tubules are basically a passageway for fluid to travel through your tooth, directly to the nerve. OUCH!

But, if you know what it’s like to suffer with sensitive teeth, Crest has some good news for you!

I was lucky enough to attend an informational meeting with Dr. Robert Gerlach, a Research Fellow in Worldwide Clinical Investigations at Proctor & Gamble, and Dr. Travis Stork, Emmy® nominated TV host of The Doctors and board-certified emergency medicine physician. They spoke on Crest’s latest achievement that will bring you relief from painful eating and drinking.

Introducing Crest Senti-Stop Strips – a revolutionary, new product that can be used at home, applied directly to affected teeth, and blocks pain in just 10 minutes.

Crest Sensi-Stop Strips

If you’ve ever used White Strips, you know how easy they are to apply and the Sensi-Strips work much the same way. Only, these strips are covered with oxolate gel (Don’t worry, oxolate is natural. You can even find it in apples!), which reacts with your teeth to form crystals that block the dental tubules and, therefore, block the pain! Why didn’t I think of that?

Luckily I didn’t, because then I wouldn’t have been able to meet this guy. Cute, smart, nice, funny, and super clean teeth thanks to Crest Pro-Health products which deliver comprehensive protection for your teeth; cavities, gingivitis, plaque, sensitivity, tartar, whitening and fresh breath. We all know that clean teeth and healthy gums are important to overall health, but when Dr. Travis Stork tells you to floss, you listen.

If you, or someone you know, has sensitive teeth leave a comment on this blog post before 9/26/14 at noon Eastern for a chance to win a free package of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips and a coupon for a future purchase. Your teeth will thank you for it!

If you know me, you know there are a couple of things that make my mind feel healthy and relaxed; first of all, my workouts. Thrice weekly, I push, pull, lift, lunge, squat and otherwise force my body into uncomfortable positions to make my brain decompress.

The second thing that puts my mind at ease, much to my husband’s chagrin, is shopping. Show me a vintage shop, the local big-box store, or simply browsing online and I’ll show you a woman who doesn’t need therapy.

Put me on a website with thousands of styles of athletic shoes and it’s like some kind of workout/shopping nirvana. When Shoebuy.com asked me to check them out, I spent hours perusing their selections, prices, and detailed product descriptions. I added items to a convenient Wish List, researched what I was looking for, and eliminated styles as I went along. It was like like a shopping project. A project of love.

I was looking for a minimalist shoe, with a mesh upper, and 0 mm drop. Oh, and they had to look good. No black, gray, or dark blue for me, thankyouverymuch. I wanted something with flair.

Ta da.
