I received free product from Truly Radiant to review.

The other day, when I was on video chat with a couple of ladies in my family, we started a discussion based on an article one of us read in a magazine. It was about what makes women look and feel radiant. Each of us had different opinions on this. I wanted to share my thoughts on what makes me feel radiant, and also would love to hear from you.
Ladies, what makes YOU feel radiant?

IMG_8733 In my opinion, radiance doesn’t come from how others view you, instead it’s a feeling you get inside through living the way that makes you feel radiant. Here are somethings that make me feel that way. <3


My first reaction to our radiance discussion was this. I said I feel the most radiant when I am laughing. The more out loud the better. I strongly believe radiance comes mostly from within. Every day I make an effort to have an optimistic outlook on life and find something to smile about.

Of course this doesn’t come from a place of naivety; we all know that some days we may get flowers and other days we can end up with just lemons. As the old saying goes though, life is what you make of it. When you have a positive view, I believe you attract more positivity to yourself. Sometimes when I smile, I notice others around me start smiling with me, and that makes me feel radiant.



Ok ladies, I need to admit it. If those pearly whites look their best when you smile, that does help a girl feel a whole lot more radiant. 🙂 I’ve had the chance to try out the ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ products. I think they are very effective in boosting the radiance of your smile in just 5 days.* (Available in mass drug & grocery retailers nationwide.)

Right now I use the ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Deep Clean Manual Toothbrush, the only manual toothbrush with a rotating head (love this cool feature!!). The bristles rotate as you brush to help clean up plaque.

It makes me feel good to know all the yucky stuff deep in my mouth gets cleaned. Especially when I use it with ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Rejuvenating Toothpaste, which has a crisp mint flavor and leaves my mouth feeling super refreshed, and of course shiny and white. The toothpaste strengthens and restores the tooth enamel while whitening.* LOVE! (*Data on file.)


I finish off my teeth cleaning and whitening routine with ARM & HAMMER™ Truly Radiant™ Whitening & Strengthening Rinse. It doesn’t have alcohol or peroxide and whitens my teeth while strengthening enamel. My favorite feature of this rinse: it prevents stains! I drink a LOT of tea, and love that I can enjoy it without worrying about stains.

I LOVE starting my day with a white smile.



When I feel radiant inside, I love matching my outer appearance as well. It’s no secret that I like fashion, but this is actually deeper than that. What I love most about experimenting with style is how you can express your feelings, personality, and mood by your outfit choices.

As a mom of three young kids, years ago, especially when I had two under two, I went through the period of not wanting to get out of my sweats. I discovered that making an effort to look how I feel inside really helped me feel like myself again. Dressing up with color, and patterns makes me feel more cheerful and helps me feel radiant.


Isn’t there something lovely about just cleaned skin? 🙂 I think cleaning and looking after my skin immediately helps me feel better, energized, and refreshed. Especially during summer months, a good scrub to your face and body a couple times a week in the shower gets both ready for the beach and the poolside. A consistent skincare routine helps me feel radiant.



This one is HUGE for me, and goes right along with #1. When I surround myself with love as much as I can, I feel the most radiant. Showing my love, spending time with those that I love, brings out the best in me and that is key for me to feel radiant.
