Get Closer As Your Team Goes Further! #CelebrateCloser @CrestLatino #LatinaBloggers #Ad

    It’s no secret that spending time with my family is a priority to me.  I fully take advantage of every opportunity that arises to connect and to celebrate with those who truly matter to me in my life.  There is just something about soccer that elicits pure joy from all of us while we are together.  It has a lot to do with the excitement of cheering on our favorite teams and players and of the anticipation of winning the whole thing and being number one!

    Soccer is also one of the things that has allowed me to stay close to my family in Spain.  I often get homesick and long to see my grandparents and the rest of my family that is on the other side of the world.  Through social media, we are able to discuss our triumphs and disappointments when it comes to our team’s performance and it definitely brings us closer together.  When you miss someone you love that much and they are that far away, it is wonderful to have such an enjoyable topic to share and laugh about.

My Aunt’s social media post cheering on our Spanish team.

    Fresh breath is definitely important when it comes to having intimate discussions as well as celebrating with people who are in close proximity to one another.  Imagine the horror of screaming “GOAL!” in someone’s face if your breath is not fresh!  I’m willing to bet that this would certainly be an epic fail and would put a damper on an otherwise merry occasion.

    Never fear, Crest Complete Multi-Benefit Whitening plus Scope Striped Toothpastes have you covered!  They fight cavities, prevent tartar, and provide cleaning action that whiten your teeth and remove surface stains.  This means that I can confidently snuggle with my two boys while we watch the soccer games without worrying about them shouting me out for having bad breath.  Believe me, this is one of the bad parts of raising children to speak their mind.  My boys have no qualms about telling me right away if I need to freshen my breath!

Enjoying getting closer while watching soccer!

    Right now, you can redeem a Crest Complete COUPON which will give you the confidence to get closer to others when you are cheering on your favorite soccer team.  Also, make sure you share the following video with your friends and family because remember, the further your team goes, the closer you get…

    I have always been paranoid about my breath! I almost always chew gum….just in case.

  2. What I wanna know is if you had to bribe the boys to sit so nicely with each other… 🙂

  3. Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell says

    When someone has bad breath, you can’t even focus on what they’re saying because you’re trying not to breath. Any insurance against that is a good thing.

  4. Terry My Journey With Candida says

    Because candida lives in the mouth, digestive tract and anywhere else it can grow…. I try very hard to keep my mouth as fresh and clean as possible.

  5. mail4rosey says

    We use Crest sometimes and I always like it. It has a more pleasant flavor than a lot of other toothpastes do.

  6. I love your guys! They are so adorable. I have had some dental issues in the past so I know how important it is to keep your teeth nice and clean.

  7. Amber Nelson says

    Bad breath can ruin any conversation or gathering. SEriously!

  8. Out of the mouths of babes… tonight my 13 yr old was talking to my 8 yr old when he exclaimed, “Your breath smells like onions!”

  9. Rebecca Bryant says

    My son tells people straight up when their breath stinks he can’t stand when you don’t brush.

  10. For starters if your breath smells really that bad, I try my best to be polite but ultimately avoid the person as best as I can. I hate smelly breath.

  11. celebbabylaundry says

    I agree with Lilith, if someone’s breath smells bad I play it out polite and try not to get too close to them when talking.

  12. Jennifer Williams says

    I always carry gum with me, this way I have it for myself and can politely offer it to someone if they also need it.

  13. I always have mints or gum too! Thanks for sharing!

  14. I always used to have gum in my bag, but I don’t seem to anymore – I should really try and get some as its a help 🙂 x

  15. My sons are at an age where they need to freshen up more often! Certainly keep an open dialogue in our house about the importance of good hygiene habits.

  16. Sometimes it is good when kids are honest.. I’d rather know than not know! Fresh breath is important for those first impressions! Hate to known as THAT GIRL w the bad breath!

  17. Veronica Solomon says

    Lol. Bad breath is one of those things that people don’t detect for themselves, yet it is a terrible problem to have!

  18. We brush my son’s teeth for him to keep his mouth clean and healthy with fresh breath. I’m looking forward to him being old enough to brush his own teeth effectively!

  19. Onica {MommyFactor} says

    There’s nothing like being near to something who has minty fresh breath. Its hard to enjoy being close to someone wih bad breath. It’s hard to listen to what their saying. Fresh breathe is a simple but important hygiene issue.

  20. JadeLouise Designs says

    Why is fresh breath important? Have you smelled my son’s breath? Oh my goodness it could kill a rat! Gotta work on him to get that minty fresh smell a higher priority for him.

  21. Ashley B says

    Fresh breath is an important part of daily oral hygiene, I believe. Bad breath usually signals that there is something going on in someones mouth that needs to be taken care of by the dentist.

  22. As a business owner, I know how very important it is to have fresh breath all the time. I’m always equipped.

  23. Mina Slater says

    Fresh breath is pretty important! Crest is all I use but I haven’t tried this particular toothpaste yet. Thank you for the coupon!

  24. There is nothing worse than having to suffer through a conversation when one has bad breath. We love Crest because not only does it do a great job at cleaning out teeth, it tastes good too!

  25. LOL Could not help but laugh at the video! Fresh breath is very important especially when you are talking to people so imagine cheering with them…Even if you are the nicest person in the world if you have bad breath people will not want to hang with you.

  26. TheNewClassy says

    Fresh breath is important because many people will stop talking to you if they can smell your rank breath. And many people won’t tell you why. I would much rather find out it’s because of something easily fixable with some mouth wash than to know that people hate my personality.

  27. It is extremely off-putting to speak to someone with bad breath. Although I don’t use Crest brand of toothpaste thanks for this review and memories of your family.

  28. I definitely don’t want to be talking with someone who has gross breath, nor would I want anyone to have to smell gross breath on me. We love Crest products!
