Vanessa Lachey Tests Bounty Trap & Lock Technology
We Asked; Vanessa Answered
I actually do not mind doing the laundry. We spilt the task in our household so it never really becomes a burden. Now with Camden going through several outfits a day, we have now stocked up on Dreft® but for the adult laundry, we really love Tide® with a Touch of Downy® Unstopables Lush Scent because it combines cleaning power with softening care. Our laundry comes out perfectly clean and smelling fantastic!
A great pair of heels! I suggest investing in one or two. I love my classic black and nude heels - I have been wearing them for years, they never seem to go out of style!
I don’t know if I have a favorite thing but with a little less time in my life, I’m glad my husband likes simple, easy recipes. One of his favorites is a super quick chicken, broccoli and rice casserole. It reminds him of his childhood so he always gets excited when I tell him it’s on the menu.
Football Sundays! We LOVE sports in our household! I like to start the day cooking a breakfast casserole (I’ve been making them for YEARS!), then lunch and of course in the midst of all the cooking and eating we are glued to the games! Everyone knows to come to our house because they can expect not only good company but yummy food. There is nothing better than hanging out at home with family and friends, cooking food and watching our favorite teams play.
The British Virgin Islands will always have a special place in my heart. It is not too long of a flight and allows us to still feel like we are escaping civilization for a bit. I was also lucky enough to marry my best friend here (Necker Island) in front of our closest friends and family. Nothing will ever beat that!
When I was younger I was in a jump rope club!
I don’t have a favorite book, per se, but I do love to read many different categories. Fiction, non-fiction you name it, I’m game! I’m also an old-fashioned girl, so I love to open a book and turn the pages.
When I was pregnant, I realized I was about to bring a person into this world and I wanted to teach them good habits and good things to follow. My family has always been fans of P&G so having the opportunity to partner with this program after our baby was born just meant so much to us. I’m so excited to share the different innovative, high-performing products that I know and love and will ease the daily routine.
We’re very lucky to have such strong family bonds. I just hope that he remembers the love and support. Not just by his parents, but by everyone who surrounds him.
I’m a firm believer that it’s not just about working out or eating right. You need to find a healthy balance between the two. If you decide to eat something bad, you’re not necessarily “fixing things” by working out a little bit harder. I’m not the greatest eater so this can be a challenge for me but I do my best to stay on track. It’s also helpful for me to try to change up my fitness routine by integrating all different types of activity. I never do the same workout twice so I rarely get bored.
I was crowned Miss South Carolina Teen USA and then Miss Teen USA in 1998. It was very newsworthy for my state because I was the first girl in South Carolina to win the whole pageant. That moment was really the springboard for so many opportunities for me.
I love to party plan and entertain in our home. I thought with the addition of a baby it would be harder, but it’s actually just another reason to have people over more often! Bounty® paper towels are always stocked in our kitchen, especially when we’re entertaining. With any party, there are lost of spills and accidents; to be able to wipe the mess away quickly and get right back to spending time with my guests is really awesome.
Since we’re big time family people, we definitely love to travel to Cincinnati to be with our family and get away from the hustle and bustle of LA.
I think my style is pretty classic but I keep up with the trends so my look stays updated. One of my favorite activities is spring cleaning my closet - my friends love it too! It helps me to de-clutter and keeps my wardrobe fresh all year long. Plus, it provides a great opportunity for all of us to give back, we like to call it “Pay it Forward Fashion Days”!
Hmm, that’s hard! I’m into all kinds of movies! I always try to catch what’s current, but still enjoy the classics. A great way to wind down for me is to curl up with my family (including Wookie!) with some popcorn, blankets, PJs and a great movie. It’s the ultimate cozy moment!
Make time for each other. Nick and I have always been a very busy couple but we’ve made it a habit to always make time for each other. Before the baby, when we happened to have work overlap in the same city, we would just stay in with some room service and a movie. Now we like to head out for a low key dinner in town.
My girlfriend who is a mother of five and a nurse recommended the Pampers® Sensitive Wipes™ to me because they’re hypo-allergenic and help to condition babies’ skin. I also have another friend who goes the cloth diaper route. Recently, I noticed she also had Pampers®. Being a new mom, I was curious to know why you would need both kinds of diapers in your home. She told me that Pampers® was truly the only diaper that keeps him dry so I kept that in mind when my baby was born. Now all we use are Pampers® Sensitive Wipes™ and Pampers® Swaddlers® Diapers. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
I always pride myself in my hair, but it has been my best asset as well as my worst. I constantly have to work on my locks to make sure they do not look or feel weighed down. Pantene® Aqua Light cleans and nourishes my hair with a light touch so it looks and feels weightless. To add extra volume, my go-to hair treatment is Nioxin DiaMax™ with HTX™. For all those moms out there, we have to do our best to still have great hair days, even with a busy schedule.
We just want our son, and future kids, to do whatever makes them happy. We’re not going to force them to be an actor or a singer. If they want to be a teacher or a doctor, then so be it! We will support them every step of the way.
Lip moisturizer with SPF. I can’t go anywhere without my lips feeling moisturized and protected!

Welcoming the Month of May!
May 3, 2013
May is such an exciting time for my family. Not only is it my first Mother's Day with the TWO loves of my life—Nick and Camden—but it is also the month we hit the road as a family to be together for Nick's upcoming tour. We love sharing all these moments together because, after all, that's what life is about, right?! Family!
I always thought I would be the type of mom who wanted to sleep in, have breakfast in bed and be pampered all day. Maybe that will come after a few more kids, but for now, I LOVE sharing my day with my boys. So I think we are going to grab a bite to eat as a family and then do something fun outdoors. That way, Wookie can even join us! No matter how perfect the day is planned, there are always unexpected melt downs when you have a newborn. That's why new moms bring toys everywhere they go! Cam's favorite toys are the interactive ones! So, I make sure to ALWAYS have Duracell® Ultra Power™ batteries packed in my purse. These batteries are an amazing product I learned about thanks to my partnership with the Have You Tried This Yet? program from P&G and they are guaranteed for 10 years in storage, so I never have to worry about my batteries failing me when I need them most! I just stock up and know I am ALWAYS good to go, and he will always have his favorite toys playing music and talking back to him.
Then, later in the month, we are officially hitting the road on a tour bus! Nick's band is touring this May, and we are so excited to make memories as a family! We even got one of the bunks on the bus converted into a crib so Cam will feel right at home, along with his toys (and of course my stock of batteries!). Since we are going to be taking a TON of pictures and home videos, I want our smiles to be their best! That's why I packed away our Oral-B® 3D White Advanced Vivid Toothbrushes. They whiten our smiles by removing surface stains… who doesn't love that?! Also, these are perfect for being on the road! No cords, chargers, or refills necessary! Just throw it in your bathroom kit and GO!
While I know it is going to be a fun "family" experience, it's also still "work" for Nick. So, sometimes after a long day traveling, being dad, then performing, Nick NEEDS a good night sleep. So, I ALWAYS recommend ZzzQuil™*. This is another amazing product I learned about through the Have You Tried This Yet? program from P&G. I LOVE recommending it to people because it's a non-habit forming sleep-aid that helps you sleep soundly, so you can wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day! I can't risk having a groggy daddy, so this is a great product! Then after a full day of playing with Cam, he's still ready to hit the stage. Some performances I will get to see; some I will hang on the bus with Cam and play, but either way, this is going to be the ultimate family memory! May is going to be a good month! And I am very grateful to have products, and share them with you, that make my life easier! That way, I can focus on the important stuff, like snuggle time and screaming in the front row with groupie love, haha!!!
How are you and your family celebrating Mother’s Day this year? And what fun summer plans do you have?! No matter what you do, I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day filled with love and laughter, and a great kick off to your summer!
Don’t forget to keep visiting PGTRYIT.com to see how the Trend Trio is celebrating this season.
* Not for Colds. Not for Pain. Just for Sleep. Read each label. Use as directed for occasional sleeplessness. Keep out of reach of children.
Honestly, who has the time to whip out a mop and fill a bucket these days? This cool tool powers through up to 2X more dirt* and grime with less effort than a mop and bucket. With so much going on, thanks to Swiffer®, I can still keep my house in tip-top shape without all the fuss and hassle of a mop and bucket.
* dried on dirt
It is never too early to treat aging skin, but sometimes we forget. This product has changed my beauty routine for the better! Not only do I get great coverage, it also hydrates and reduces the appearance of age spots. One less thing to worry about!

Spring Has Sprung! Welcome Your ‘Firsts’ This Season
March 15, 2013
Now that the weather is starting to warm up and the flowers are finally beginning to bloom, it’s time to say goodbye to the old and hello to the new!
As you know, with Camden in our lives, we are constantly experiencing new and exciting things. In fact, we just celebrated our first Valentine’s with him and now we’re looking forward to his first word, the first time he crawls, and soon — his first spring season! Nick and I are always looking for new activities to try out with our little man, and this spring, we plan on taking our very first family trip to the zoo. It’s something we can do together, while making new memories that will stay in our hearts forever. I hope he loves the penguins just as much as I do, and I can’t wait to see which animal proves to be his favorite! Nick is convinced it will be the monkeys. Maybe because I call him my little monkey!
The season continues to be one of “firsts” for me, thanks to my partnership with the Have You Tried This Yet? program from P&G which has introduced me to some amazing, high-performing products that ease the daily grind for myself, family and home and always get the job done right — the first time!
One product that I cannot get enough of is Downy Infusions™ Honey Flower Fabric Softener. It smells so good and gives my family’s clothes layered scents that last throughout the day — even after several diaper changes with my little “monkey”. But it doesn’t stop there! I always sprinkle in some Downy Shimmer Unstopables when doing laundry. This is a mom’s dream come true as it gives our clothes, linens, etc. up to 12 weeks of freshness out of storage. Pretty good, right? Hello, extra free time I don’t have to spend washing and re-washing (and re-washing) our laundry!
But spring isn’t only about inviting the new into your daily life — it’s also a time to break from the old and start afresh by spring cleaning your home and revamping your beauty routine. Head & Shoulders® Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner are two products I’ve added to our shower caddy to kick-start my beauty routine into high gear and replace those shampoos and conditioners that just haven’t met the challenge of moisturizing my hair! The shampoo and conditioner nourish damaged hair and help relieve dry scalp — which is great now that winter has come and gone.
Whatever you end up doing this season, enjoy it and be open to the new experiences that may come your way. Don’t forget to check back and visit PGTryIt.com to see how the Trend Trio and Irma Martínez are welcoming spring.
What firsts will you and your family be experiencing this season?

Love Is All Around! Celebrate the Things You LOVE This Month!
February 14, 2013
I’m really excited for Valentine’s Day this year. It really is one of my favorite holidays because it celebrates one of the most important things in life—LOVE!
Nick and I feel very lucky to have so much love to celebrate. As you know, with the arrival of our son, Camden, we have experienced a lot of “firsts.” We never thought we could love something/someone so much! With each “first” and memory we make together as a family, our love for each other grows deeper and deeper (I know, a little cheesy but it’s true!). This Valentine’s Day, we plan to celebrate the greatest addition to our lives along with how much our love has grown for one another over the past few months.
Besides the love for my family that grows stronger with each day, since I partnered with Have You Tried This Yet?, I have also fallen in love with tons of great P&G products! This program provides so many simple and innovative solutions that truly ease the daily routine for me and my family.
One of those products is COVERGIRL® + Olay® Tone Rehab™ 2-in-1 Foundation. This beauty wonder gives me instant, luminous coverage for more youthful and radiant-looking skin—a lifesaver for tired Moms! I have also become very reliant on Pantene® Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as the Pantene Silky Moisture Whip. This system is such a lifesaver! It helps lock in moisture and block out heat damage protecting my hair from daily styling.
I do have to admit, there is one thing I didn’t always love doing—washing my family’s whites, which seem to get dirty in a matter of seconds—especially now with the little munchkin in the house! Thankfully, through my partnership with Have You Tried This Yet? I have discovered how AMAZING Tide® Vivid White + Bright™ detergent and Boost™ is—when used together, these products have transformed our laundry routine. Tide Vivid White + Bright detergent and Boost keeps our whites like new, wash after wash. Now that, I love!
Don’t forget to keep checking PGTryIt.com for ongoing bright ideas to improve your everyday including: savings opportunities, demo videos, product reviews, and exclusive advice from me, Irma Martinez, and the Trend Trio.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! What’s on your love list?

your clothes really take
a beating! Between the

and everyday joys (and

are constantly cleaning

definitely a product we keep
readily available in our home

New Year, New You! Making resolutions and sticking to them!
January 25, 2013
Happy 2013, Everyone!
Have you set your New Year’s resolutions yet? This year, I’ve decided to focus my goals on the little things, the small everyday changes me and my family can do to make a difference and ease life’s daily demands.
Through my partnership with the Have You Tried This Yet? program, I’ve learned about so many simple and innovative product solutions that truly ease my daily routine for me, my family, and my home.
As a mother, I’m so busy taking care of my family that I tend to forget about myself. One of my resolutions is to make time for “me time!” Although very relaxing, professional services can not only be expensive, but very time consuming. Instead, I spoil myself by using products I already have in my home, like the Gillette® Venus & Olay™ Razor. It’s something so simple, but it boosts my homemade spa experience by leaving my skin smooth without even having to apply lotion.
I’ve also been trying to not stress too much over my cleaning routine. The Swiffer® WetJet® Extra Power Pad with the scrubbing power of Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser helps me keep my home spick and span without having to pull out the mop and bucket every time, which is so time consuming. This product is such a life saver! It powers through up to two times more dried-on dirt and grime with less effort than the traditional mop and bucket. Those few extra minutes I gain definitely get utilized throughout the day!
We’re also working on our relationship resolution now that we have a newborn. It can be challenging to make time for each other as a couple when all your time goes towards the baby. Nick and I do everything we can to sit down together every night for dinner. Once Camden is down, we have “us” time. This is when we catch up, eat a meal, watch one of our favorite shows, or even just sit on the balcony with a glass of wine. With a busy schedule, this can be hard but even so, we still try to make the time—even if it means pushing it a few hours!
In any event, while you’re working on your resolutions, make sure you check back and visit pgtryit.com for ongoing bright ideas to improve your everyday, including: savings opportunities, demo videos, product reviews, and exclusive tips and advice from me, Irma Martínez, and the Trend Trio. We’re all in this “making life easier” venture together!
Wishing you and your family all the happiness, health, and success in this year ahead!

Mi Casa es Su Casa! Tips and Tricks for Hosting Guests During the Holidays
November 1, 2012
The most wonderful time of the year is finally here!
We LOVE the holidays in the Lachey household! That is one of the many reasons why I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Have You Tried This Yet? this year because it offers a ton of innovative solutions for your self, family and home.
The holiday season is such a busy time for us. If we are not traveling from place to place visiting everyone we can, we are hosting people in our own home. Now with Camden in the mix, we realized we have many more trips planned and visitors to see this year. I wonder why? It can’t be all the cuteness and love he gives - ok, I guess it is ☺!
I have been preparing and planning for the holidays for quite awhile now so I have stocked up on many of the innovative products highlighted in the Have You Tried This Yet? program. I am telling you, I get REALLY excited about it! When we are hosting overnight guests in our home, I like to make them feel like they are in their own place. Through my journey with P&G, I have discovered this amazing product called Tide® with a Touch of Downy® Unstopables Lush Scent. This innovative product makes all of our linens smell fresh and feel incredibly soft. What’s better than sinking into a comfy, clean bed at the end of a long day of fun?
I also love to make our guests an in-room care basket that includes anything they could need during their stay. You should definitely let your guests know ahead of time so they know they can dedicate that extra room in their suitcases for presents! I think it’s safe to say, when traveling by airplane, we’re all challenged by the 3 oz. liquid travel limit, especially when you’re just doing carry-on!
I typically include personal care products like Pantene® Aqua Light Shampoo and Conditioner, Olay® Winter Retreat Body Wash (a little boost to renew that dry, winter skin), as well as Crest® Pro-Health® Clinical Plaque Control toothpaste and an Oral-B® Pro-Health® Clinical Pro-Flex toothbrush to maintain those pearly whites for the obligatory group pictures. You'd be surprised how many guests forget their toothbrush & toothpaste! I also like to add some water bottles, snack bars and fresh fruit just in case you need a little something after you retire for the night.
Don’t forget, right here on pgtryit.com, we will be offering demo videos, product reviews, savings opportunities and exclusive tips & advice from the Trend Trio, myself and Irma Martínez! Be sure to check back often to take advantage of all that the Have You Tried This Yet? program has to offer.
That’s about it! We’re just really excited to celebrate a lot of “firsts” this season with our little man and loved ones.
Wishing everyone safe travels throughout the season and happy holidays to you and yours!

October 26, 2012
Hey there! I hope everyone is enjoying their October so far.
This month has brought so many new and wonderful things to my world! In particular, Nick and I have recently added a precious little boy to our family. As you can imagine, a new baby has come with a lot of changes. Even our dog Wookie is still adjusting to having a baby brother!
With our new bundle of joy, I’m constantly on the hunt for innovative, high-performing products that will help improve the daily grind, allowing me and my family to get the job done right the FIRST time. This way, we can have more time to spend with each other and maybe even sneak in some time for a nap?!
Thanks to the Have You Tried This Yet? program from P&G, I can do just this! This program highlights innovative, quality products in a multitude of categories for your self, family and home helping to transform the daily routine for the better.
I’m sure it’s no shock that one of our favorite household items right now is Pampers® Swaddlers® Diapers! This amazing product helps keep our baby drier because it has a wetness indicator that signals when he needs to be changed. How great is that?!
And, that’s not all! With my partnership with Have You Tried This Yet? I now don’t have to worry about spending SO much time wiping things down to keep a clean home! Bounty® helps me tackle the mess with less. With just one sheet, I can trap & lock the mess quickly so I can move on to the next task. I have a feeling my obsession with these paper towels is only going to get deeper with so many boys in the house!
P&G products have always been near and dear to my family. As we adjust to the new routine of being newlyweds and newbie parents, P&G has always been there for us, every step of the way! Several of the innovative products from the Have You Tried This Yet? program have truly helped us break through the clutter, providing access to the very best, high-performing products to help ease life’s daily demands.
Make sure to come back and visit pgtryit.com as we’ll be providing you with a whole bunch of exciting things including demo videos, product reviews, savings opportunities and exclusive tips & advice from the Trend Trio, myself and Irma Martinez!
I look forward to continuing to chat with you about the bright and innovative ideas I continue to discover, thanks to the Have You Tried This Yet? program from P&G.
That’s all for now – can’t wait to speak to you all soon!
