I love getting the absolute most out of the clothing in my closet, so anything I can wear for more than  one season I am happy with! In the fall, I wore a suede skirt with a turtleneck and thigh high boots. It was super comfy and I knew in the spring/summer I would be able to wear it styled for warmer weather.

My off shoulder crop top is is from H&M and their sizing is always a little tricky and its hard to know how its going to fit. This top is a size 10 and in my opinion, I would say it equals out to a size medium.  Remember always try it on first!

Did anyone do anything special with their husbands or dads on Father’s Day? On Sunday my sister-in-law got married so we spent Father’s Day at Shotgun Creek. Such a beautiful park with everything you need to have a great time!

I finished the book You before Me a couple of weeks ago and my friends and I are going to see it this Saturday! I liked the book, but I’m hoping the movie is better! Most movies aren’t, but I heard this one is! My book club is reading Game of Thrones now, and I actually really like so far! I haven’t watched any of the T.V series so I’m going into it super naive!

Happy Friday Loves!!!

PLANET BOX LUNCHBOX

We had the most perfect day to try out our new Planet Box Lunchbox! Confession time… I’m really picky about how my food is stored! I can’t handle anything in the bread, cracker, cookie, family stored in a plastic baggie. Fruit, veggies, and nuts are fine, anything else, no way! This is why I was so excited about my Planet Box! I love that that there’s a guide for how much to pack, I didn’t have to put Porter’s yogurt or dip in a a bunch of different plastic containers, and the portioning is perfect! There are three different lunchboxes to choose from so you can choose which design best fits your eating routine. I chose the Rover because Porter, John, and I like variety when we eat so no matter who I’m packing a lunch for it’s the perfect portions for us.

I loved not having a ton of trash after our picnic! No brown paper bag or plastic baggies to throw away! I can’t wait to take it when we go hiking, I hate having to pack a ton of different containers or baggies when the the goal is to keep your carrying load minimal and then having all the empty containers and trash to carry! John and I both tend to forget our plastic containers either at work or in the car and then they stink so bad, not with this! The clean up was so easy and didn’t retain any smell!

The carrying bag was perfect for our picnic! It fit Porter’s sippy cup, utensils, lunchbox, and his Boogie Wipes! I had everything I needed all in one bag! I really like that that Planet Box is practical for everyone, not just moms! Go check out the different designs they have, there’s something for everyone!  Note:  They have Bambini Eugene listed as a store you can buy these at!  Go and support a local shop!

I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about this palm leaf print dress! I love that the style is vintagey (yes I make up my own words) looking, yet the back is more modern! The cut and shape is so flattering. It really accentuates the smallest part of your waist making it so comfortable and easy to wear! The fabric has no stretch so make you sure you really check your measurements and the measurements on the dress, I am wearing a size small. How amazing is this print?!? So perfect for summer, if you are going anywhere tropical in the next few months this would be perfect!

We’ve been doing so much around the house since the weather has been so nice. We organized the garage and I’m even going to have a yard sale next weekend! I have a bunch of little things I need to get rid of to make room for all the new stuff I get at garage sales ;). Did anyone do anything fun for Memorial Day weekend? I had my sister-in-law’s bridal shower at our house and then we went out for her bachelorette party!

My book club just read Me Before You… I bawled my eyes out! Now I’m ready to go see the movie and cry even more!

SMILE BRILLIANT

SMILE BRILLIANT Teeth Whitening

SMILE BRILLIANT Teeth Whitening

The number one reason I was so excited to try Smile Brilliant was the fact that they provide professional custom fitted trays! If you have ever tried any teeth whitening products, you know, that the only way to get custom fitted trays is to go to the dentist which costs $500+! My number two reason is they offer desensitizing gel to use after whitening to re-hydrate your teeth and help with any sensitivity! My biggest complaint about whitening products is how sensitive they make your teeth afterwards, I have had ZERO sensitivity with this product!!

I have always been insecure about the yellowing of my teeth. Brushing them twice a day doesn’t keep mine white. I have been drinking coffee every day all day from a very young age so I needed a product that really worked on stains accumulated over 28 years. White stripes and pastes just couldn’t do the job!  Don’t just take my word for it though, check out their Reviews and Testimonials page for what others are saying about Smile Brilliant!  They also have a great video you can watch explaining the product.


MOLDING YOUR TRAYS

Your kit comes with Catalyst Paste and base paste for your upper teeth, lower teeth, and one extra set just in case you make a mistake. Don’t over think this.  Work with only one set of pastes and trays at a time, don’t try to mix together both sets because timing is important. In your hand you mix together one catalyst paste and one base paste like Play-Doh. Work fast to ensure the paste doesn’t set up. Try to mix it all together in one minute, place in molding trays, and make your impression. Don’t bite down all the way through till you feel the plastic of the tray. Don’t wiggle it. Keep the tray on for 2 minutes so the paste has time to harden. Once removing allow impressions to sit for 10 minutes then rinse with cool water. Do not remove molds from their trays you will place the whole molds, tray and all, in the postage paid envelope they provide! Each kit comes with thorough instructions so it will go over all of this!

WHITENING YOUR TEETH

Once you receive your trays in the mail you can begin the whitening process! Brush and floss your teeth. Twist small plastic tip off of the whitening gel syringe and apply a thin strip to your trays. Have a paper towel ready for any extra saliva. Place on your teeth and leave on for at least 15 minutes and up to 3 hours. Afterwards rinse and dry your trays. If sensitivity is an issue for you can then apply a strip to your trays and place on your teeth.


I am so impressed with Smile Brilliant! I would recommend this product to anyone! Their staff is so nice and were quick to answer any questions I had which made my experience even better! I hope if you are self-conscious like I was about your stained or yellowing teeth you will give Smile Brilliant a try!

Smile Brilliant has been kind enough to offer a giveaway of $139.95 store credit (equals teeth whitening trays + three whitening gel syringes and three desensitizing gel syringes) to one lucky reader of mine!!! You can find the link to the giveaway here.  The giveaway will end in 2 weeks and I will announce then.  The winner will be given a code you can use at checkout! This is an amazing chance for you to win this for free and try it out!  Good luck everyone!
