A few days ago, I got THE MOST AMAZING spray tan ever and I even tweeted this, which, I admit, kinda makes me hate myself. I shouldn’t care that I look better with some color but, fact of the matter is, I DO. It is what it is, right? But in all honesty, I was extremely impressed with the quality of Infinity Sun’s spray tan; the all-natural product was applied perfectly even and the color was natural and not orange at all (Jessica Alba, Brooke Burke and Britney Spears are all fans).
As someone who used to go in the automatic spray tan booths, I can definitely see a big difference in the quality here, since the spray is actually customized by a person, and not automatically sprayed on by a machine. And yeah, I know getting naked in front of a total stranger can be a little weird but after a few minutes, you’ll be fine- don’t worry.

So as you know, I recently went to an Oral-B breakfast with Brooke Burke and was actually given the opportunity to have a one-on-one interview with the TV host herself. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you know that Brooke is the co-host of Dancing With the Stars, the host of She’s Got the Look, the Co-CEO of ModernMom.com, the President of BabooshBaby.com and author of the soon-to-be released book “Naked Mom.” So yeah, she’s a busy lady, to say the least and here goes…three questions with Brooke Burke:
Q: What are your beauty secrets to stay so young-looking?
A: My number one tip would be that I drink lots of water. I also exfoliate one to thre times a week and I love vitamin C serums, eye serums, etc. I also eye patches when I’m getting ready for my shows…they really hydrate and help wake you up.
Q: If you could give your 22-year-old self a piece of advice, what would it be?
A: Know what you don’t know. I can remember being 22 and thinking you have it all figured out. Also do something that scares you…it’s so important to challenge yourself, take risks and lots of chances.
Q: Who surprised you the most on Dancing With the Stars?
A: I was very surprised to learn what a gentleman and how nice The Situation is. He’s a very nice guy…I hope he’s gonna be around for awhile. (Note: this interview was conducted before The Sitch was voted off)
So I was recently invited to a breakfast hosted by Oral-B with Brooke Burke and Operation Smile at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood. I’ll put this out there, I’m so not a breakfast person…which is really just because I’m so not a morning person BUT when I was offered the chance to do a quick solo interview with Brooke and get a delish breakfast at Cecconi’s, I just couldn’t say no.
Oral-B teamed up with Brooke Burke and Operation Smile to announce that they would be donating $25,000 to Operation Smile, which is a worldwide children’s charity that provides free surgeries for children with cleft lips and cleft palates. Now not only is this an amazingly generous donation, but Oral-B is also providing a pretty hefty rebate to customers who buy their electric toothbrushes in honor of this new movement.
I was also really interested to learn a litttle more about dental health as well. I’ve been using theOral-B ProfessionaCare 3000 that was in the event gift bag and I’ll be honest- I LOVE it. My dentist told me just last month that I should consider using an electric toothbrush (and not the kind I had been using that takes 1 AA battery and costs like $10 at the drugstore). I kind of scoffed…mainly because I’m lazy and then took this invite as a sign that the teeth gods want me to have less plaque in my life.
According to Oral-B, the rechargeable oscillating rotating toothbrush can help remove up to 100% more plaque than a regular manual toothbrush and also gets in deep between the teeth and along the gum line for a thorough clean, which helps prevent gingivitis. Gross. The brush I’ve been using retails for $99.99 but after the mail-in rebate, it’s really only $49.99. Not a bad price for clean teeth, my friends.
Stay tuned for my “Three Questions With” Brooke Burke interview this week…
