How I Bring Out My Bold!

I’m sharing #LISTERINE in my life as part of a LISTERINE® sponsored series for Socialstars™!

Hey All!

I always try to be bold in everything I do. I find that fearlessness and originality is very scarce now-a-days and it’s hard to be first one to do something unique. Everything has been done before in some way or another and I don’t tend to like to follow the leader. Finding a way to push myself to be bold and unafraid to be different has always been something I focused on in everything I do. Whether it’s what I’m wearing like my DIY Patchgame sneakers

I try to make sure everything is me and screams Brite & Bubbly. I’ve had my color theme and confetti dots for my site and brand for about 7 years, just an FYI.

I recently went on two back to back trips and one of the trips was to a crafting conference. I made sure to bring my LISTERINE® Total Care, so I could make sure my teeth and breath are always looking great and smelling great. I’m sure you all know how obsessed I am with keeping my teeth and gums healthy by now. Each day of this conference, I took a swish of my LISTERINE® and I challenged myself to be even more bold.


I took classes that I felt would be a challenge and made things I never thought I could make like this emoji heart eyes mini marquee sign.


I went out and actively introduced myself to people, handed out girl gang buttons, and even hitched rides with strangers. I even made it a point to huge strangers. If that’s not bold, I don’t know what is. I made new friends and had a blast as you can see in the pictures below. It pays to be bold sometimes as I loved every minute of this trip!

LISTERINE® actually launched it’s own campaign called Bring Out the Bold™ and it challenges you to take the Bold Challenge! What does that entail you ask? You just, Take a swish (or use) your favorite LISTERINE® product, then do something that is Bold to you! According to their recent study, LISTERINE® users are more likely to:

  • Eat the spiciest dish on the menu
  • Participate in a food fight
  • Run a triathlon

Ever wanted to do any of those things? Take a swish, be bold, and try it!

I obviously took the challenge and I hope you will too! You never know who you can meet or what you can accomplish unless you push yourself to be a little bolder some times.
