Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home

A bright, white smile is definitely something to brag about! I’ve used several different teeth whitening products over the years and haven’t found something that truly worked. I’ve tried LED lightsprofessional teeth whitening from my dentist, and white strips found at the drugstore. When Smile Brilliant reached out to me I thought I might as well give it a shot. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome!

My teeth prior to the whitening weren’t “not white” but they weren’t the brightest they could be in my opinion!

While I don’t drink coffee, which dulls and stains a lot of smiles, I am big on diet coke. I drink a couple of them a day which I’m sure doesn’t contribute well to a bright smile! I love white teeth but hate all the muss, fuss and expense that most teeth whitening products have.

So I was totally game for trying something new! I loved Smile Brilliant’s super easy process for whiter teeth. Once you sign up they send you a box with easy instructions to follow to make molds of your teeth. You send those back and in about a week you have your custom fitted teeth whitening traysto get to whitening! I loved the ease of this professional at home whiteningsystem. I used the whitening gel about once every other night or every two nights for an hour. After that I used the desensitizing gel for about 15-30. For me I think the desensitizing gel made all the difference. I hate using whitening products just for my teeth to hurt afterwards. The desensitizing gel helps with this! Not only does it help with teeth sensitivity it is also supposed to help prevent future staining.

Here are my after results! 

And here is a stacked picture the top being my before and the bottom being my afters. I love that this brightening process didn’t take very long to achieve results! The Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system definitely brightened up my smile and gave me more confidence. Pictures are everything when you’re a blogger, and having a bright white smile makes the photos so much better!

With the weather being so up and down lately it’s hard to know how to dress. I’m loving the new pieces Jill from Hello Ruby picked up in Vegas for the fall season! So many of them are easily “wear now” pieces. Either by themselves or layered.

Fall is all about flannels right? Love a fun take on a fall basic. How amazing are those grommets??

As I’ve shared so many times fall is my favorite season when it comes to fashion. I love all the details, layering and jewel tones. Hello Ruby knocked it out of the park with this one, the detail on this sweater is to die for! It also feels great on and is fairly lightweight.

And of course every fall wear now look needs some amazing coffee from Crane Coffee to go with it because #basic.

How to Style Accessories Ft. JORD Watch

Do you ever find it hard to accessorize bold prints and colors? I know this can be a struggle sometimes especially with all the fun, vibrant prints that are so trendy right now. When JORD contacted me about doing a collab I thought this was the perfect fit for this topic! 

JORD’s watches are so versatile and unique. I love the one that I picked out, which you can see more details of here. The simplicity of this watch still makes a statement on it’s own while easily being able to incorporate into any outfit. 

The bold striped pants I have on with the loud colored top seem like enough on it’s own yet I didn’t have any accessories added! I typically throw on my apple watch though it doesn’t always work the best with what I’m wearing. The Fieldcrest Maple watch makes a statement on it’s own without being too crazy. I also love the coloring of it against so many skin tones!

To complete the look I added a simple leather clutch, my fave Stella & Dot delicate initial necklace, neutral toned earrings that complemented the watch and of course a pair of my Quay sunnies.

JORD is also so kind to be hosting a $100 giveaway to put towards any watch you choose! To enter that giveaway simply go here. You can also check out their entire selection of wood watches plus see their engravable options here.

So the next time you’re worried about mixing and matching prints, colors and accessories don’t! If wearing loud colors and prints just remember a “statement” piece doesn’t have to be a crazy necklace or long tassel earrings it can be as easy as a unique watch or clutch!

Charcuterie Goodness

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and are enjoying the Holiday season. Do you get stressed during the holidays with all the entertaining, gifts, and cooking? It’s easy to get overwhelmed when the holiday traditions seem to become too much. The trick is to learn where to take “shortcuts”! One of those great shortcuts is Whole Foods


But really, what are the holidays without good food? I think almost every family has a holiday tradition that somehow involves food from cookie baking to stuffing making. Whole Foods has great selections of pre prepared food, wine, desserts and so much more. So tell me, has your main course ever taken too long to cook and your guests start getting hangry? Well a charcuterie board is the perfect answer! It has sustenance, it’s colorful and you can add pretty much whatever yumminess you want to it!


If you’ve never vistied Whole Foods cheese selection you are seriously missing out. I added some cranberry cheeses for a festive charcuterie board and also chose some goodies from the olive bar, which has more than just olives! To finish it off I added some salami and almonds.


But, of course, what is a good charcuterie board without some yummy sips? Cava it is! Whole Foods has so many great tips on their websites such as this article with their favorite wines for the holiday season and tips for pairing!


Being still somewhat newlyweds we are still creating our holiday traditions. However, at home date nights have always been one of our fave things to do! The hubs and I enjoyed this lovely goodness by the tree for a little holiday themed at home date night!
