Mom Hack: Easy & Inexpensive Teeth Whitening

Scroll to the bottom for a giveaway and outfit details

Some things go hand in hand. For example, motherhood= coffee + wine. But you know what else that means? Stained teeth and low confidence in my smile. And I don’t think I am the only one! I’ll admit that the secret to success for my early morning wakeups is a freshly brewed cup of coffee (I sing the praises of my grind-and-brew daily!). But the stains on my teeth are an unfortunate side effect I don’t love. I have used other whitening products for years with some success, but often with a loooot of pain (sensitive teeth over here!) and never quite eradicating the stains between my teeth. When Smile Brilliant reached out to me I could hardly contain myself!

Using Smile Brilliant was so easy to fit into my lifestyle. I would pop in the custom whitening trays after dinner as my husband took the kids upstairs and start getting ready for bed. I would pick up the house a bit and then meet up for bedtime kisses. Simply leaving the trays in my mouth for a couple hours would five me perfectly white teeth without any hassle. I would apply the desensitizing gel about 15 minutes before bed, and that’s it! No pain, so easy, and instantly white teeth. Talk about a perfect match.

So let me explain what this product is: it is a CUSTOM teeth whitening tray that you can reuse, as well as a desensitizing gel if you suffer from sensitive teeth like I do. Not only is their product proven to whiten your teeth faster than at the dentist office, but it costs nearly 70% less! We are talking over $500 at the office versus this at-home system for under $149. They are also vegan and cruelty free which is a huge plus. If you know me than you know I am not one to advocate for a product that I wouldn’t use myself, and this is no exception. When I whitened my teeth the first time with this product, I saw immediate results! I am now three treatments in and my teeth have never looked better. I may have happy-texted my sisters and got them on board right away.

Gift Guide: Men’s Stocking Stuffers

My husband is notoriously difficult to shop for. He has everything he needs, and if he doesn’t, he buys it. I mean he is easy in the way that he doesn’t need or want much, but its so tough to figure out what to get for his stocking stuffers! I rounded up some things that I am actually buying for my husband’s stocking. For some context, he is a Director of a company and travels quite a bit. Check out what is on my (his) list!

 

Dude Wipes I feel like I wouldn’t be a good wife without a gag gift? This is one of those gag gifts he will actually use and enjoy. Just read the product description through the link and you’ll see…

Body Building Hair Gel Ever since I met my husband 10 years ago, he has feared that he is balding. He isn’t. He is just blonde. Even so, this hair gel should help him out! Plus he loves this Jack Black brand.

Slim Credit Card Wallet My husband isn’t a fan of wallets. For the longest time he carried them around in his wallet with one of my hair bands… This one is nice and slim so I know he will love it!

Face Moisturizer This is that Jack Black brand he loves! He has and uses this, so why not replenish his stock?

Foaming Shave Gel I like to try and get him unique/nice things when I have a chance, and a stocking is the perfect excuse! This higher end shave gel is actually not expensive at all, and I am sure he will love it!

Sunglasses I have a pair of this brand sunglasses already and I love them. They are sturdy and a great product, and inexpensive for the quality! Plus he tends to lose sunglasses…

Letter Opener My dad had a letter opener when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing. I think you have officially reached adult status if you have one in your office.

3-in-1 Travel Product Since my husband travels a lot, this is a winner! This is one of his favorite brands, and why not combine all your toiletry needs into one product? Less to pack!

Cashmere Scarf As much as my husband doesn’t spend money on himself, he does like nice things. This scarf is a bargain for being cashmere! I can see him wearing this all through winter. And repeating “I love my wife” all day long as he wears it…

So those are my big choices! I will probably throw in some candy bars, gum, and lottery tickets just for fun. What was your favorite? Did I miss anything? Let me know below!

Getting Ready for Date Night Featuring Lipsense



Date night is highly coveted in our house. While official dates aren’t consistent, they are an eagerly anticipated break from the chaos that is three children. So you can imagine that when this special night comes around, I want to look my best! I mean we are to the point where my husband compliments me every time I wear makeup, which isn’t a lot #momlife #sorryhunny.  I am not one for lipgloss or lipstick (I drink and eat too much which smudges or fades it). I am no makeup guru, but I recently discovered how much I could elevate my look by adding a little lip color. But what does one do when lipstick just isn’t a good fit?

Enter Lipsense by SeneGence. I was sent a sample by my friend Tori and while I was hesitant (lips aren’t my thing!), I was interested to try it out.  Lipsense’s claim to fame is that the color lasts 18 hours and won’t smudge, budge, or kiss off. Let me tell you- with no exaggeration, this stuff LASTS and the claims are true! From getting ready, to kissing the kids on our way out, to a glass of wine and through dinner, I was so impressed! The color stayed on my lips and looked great. My husband couldn’t stop complimenting me! The color was very flattering and I felt great!

If Lipsense is something you’ve been on the fence about trying or even are just hearing about it for the first time, contact Tori! She is so sweet and fun and can help match you to your perfect color. Lipsense comes in 36 different colors and 10 glosses. And you can mix and match colors to make your own custom creation! So cool, right?!  (I am wearing “Luv it”)
