Smile Brilliant! Whitening My Teeth At Home


Whitening Teeth At Home

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your holidays! Since it’s a new year I decided to take charge of one thing that always seems to bother me, my yellow teeth. Most of you who follow my blog and Instagram know that I struggle with a tea and coffee addiction, leaving me with stained teeth that just don’t look great in pictures.

I have partnered with Smile Brilliant to improve my own teeth and tell you all about their amazing product! Smile Brilliant is a home teeth whitening system that is designed to give you those perfect white teeth I thought was only possible by spending thousands and spending hours at the dentist.

To start the whitening process with Smile Brilliant you first need to use the teeth whitening trays kit to take molds of your own teeth. This sounds scary but it was actually super simple and the whitening trays you receive really do make a huge difference. Check out this article on the benefits of custom-fitted trays. 

Once you create the molds of your teeth you simply send them back to Smile Brilliant and before you know it your personal whitening trays show up at your doorstep! The trays you receive are soft and flexible, making the whole whitening process comfortable.

One thing about teeth whitening I get very nervous about is causing tooth sensitivity, well with smile brilliant there will be none of that! Along with the whitening gel syringes you will also receive a few syringes of desensitizing gel. By filling the trays with this gel and leaving it on for 15-20 minutes I never experienced a sensitivity problem!

Over the past week I have been hard to work on my teeth whitening, one hour each night! I am very happy with my results and recommend Smile Brilliant to anyone looking to brighten their smile! Here are my before and after photos!

I plan on continuing to whiten my teeth for the next few weeks I will be posting updates on my Instagram! Remember to follow me to stay up to date on my progress.

I am going to link this YouTube video that will help demonstrate Smile Brilliant.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have on Smile Brilliant, if you decide to try it, I will include the link to Smile Brilliant, don’t forget to let me know about your experience!

Don’t Stress Out About Break Outs

Everyone knows that I always stress the importance of confidence. But for me one thing that always hits my confidence hard is when my skin is breaking out. No matter what, when I have a pimple I feel like it’s all people can see and that everyone is staring.

Since I am sure many girls feel this way when those little pimples make an appearance on your skin, I wanted to share my favorite beauty tool! It’s done wonders for my skin, and by using it every night I have seen a huge improvement!

This little beauty secret is called the Soniclear Elite by Michael Todd Beauty, and believe me, it works miracles! You simply use this little brush with your current cleanser to clean your face, it takes the same amount of time as if you were washing your face by hand but it gets all the dirt, makeup, and impurities out of your pores and off of you face! Believe me, you will notice the difference!

So if you are looking for something to finally fight off and kill that stubborn acne, or you just want to go to bed knowing your skin really is clean I recommend picking up the Soniclear Elite by Micheal Todd!

Dress sizes can’t define, don’t let the world decide what’s beautiful

Hello Everyone,

I want to thank you all for the overwhelming amount of E-mails I received after my last post! They were all filled with kindness and love; I really have missed you all!!

Today I am writing to you all because of one email I got in particular! I received a very emotional and heartfelt letter from a high school sophomore.

She told me that she has always been struggling with her weight but has always considered herself to be beautiful! Until high school when people began to pick on her because of her size. She goes on to tell me that these girls have not only been embarrassing her but also have started to change how she sees herself and views her own body.

While reading this Email, I was almost in tears; no one should feel this way about themselves, and when these feelings are caused by the cruelty and ignorance of others, it is just so sad and it breaks my heart!

Now I can say that you shouldn’t listen to the cruel words of others, and only you can define how you feel about yourself, but in reality, this is almost impossible to do! Our peers play such a big part in our everyday life that it is so hard to ignore their opinions.

The best advice I can give someone in this position is to be strong, understand that you are beautiful and understand that there is a cruelty in this world that is not fair. Be the bigger person and don’t forget to put yourself first! Love yourself, know your worth and beauty, and truly love yourselves!

 

Love you all,

Michelle

Hello World

Hello Everyone,

I must apologize for my extended absence! I must say I have been a very busy girl, most recently I have started grad school!

I was offered a full assistantship! Allowing me to go to school as well as get a great experience of working as a Teaching Assistant, enabling me to teach classes, and do some real world hands on research!

I just finished my first week, and so far I have no complaints, it is so nice being back to school.

Me and Tyler also through a celebration of our marriage, a second reception! As many of you know our wedding ceremony was planned ver quickly and even though it was fantastic it was very nice to have a bigger party that all our friends and family could attend!

It’s been a crazy and fun summer!

I am hoping to get back to you all more regularly; I am going to make an honest effort! I miss all of my web friends! Let me know if there is anything you want me to touch upon in the next few days!

Talk to you all soon!

Lots of love,

Michelle

Happy Birthday Mr. SHAKESPEARE

Hello Everyone,
I hope you didn’t let those Monday Blues get to you today! Tyler and I had a great day together celebrating our three years together! It’s insane to believe that we just started dating three years ago and now we are married with a cat lol!!!!

Well today I want to wish a very influential man a Happy Birthday! Today is William Shakespeare’s Birthday. He gave the world so many beautiful plays and stories.

As a lover of writing, I have always loved reading his works.  His words are timeless and beautiful.  His stories are gripping and mesmerizing. He was a true genius!

He change the course of literature through his masterpieces.   I believe the literature we read today would be so different if we had not known his genius! He paved the way for so many other stories.

Even 400 years since we lost him, his stories still inspire people to write. Mr. Shakespeare is much more then an author; he is an author, a poet, a hero, a legend, and an inspiration!

So cheers to you Mr. Shakespeare…  The Bard of Avon… Happy Birthday… and Thank you!!!

Love you all,
Michelle

Hello Everyone,

I have 5 days until I leave for Disney! As you might be able to tell I am so excited to be starting this adventure. Not only is this our spring break trip but our honeymoon! We went on a weekend trip to Connecticut right after our wedding so that we could save the money and find a time to go to Disney.
Well now it is less then a week away and am getting all gitty just thinking about the morning we leave!
Today I packed my carry on filled with all the things I will try to entertain myself with. So here is what is in my Darth Vader carry on:

  • My hot pink HP laptop (so I can keep up with all of you)
  • Yes cucumber face wipes (always need to refresh after a day of travel)
  • My Vera Bradley wallet (it is the perfect size to keep everything you need for travel)
  • A mini hair brush by precision beauty (great quality and perfect size)
  • My notebook and calendar book (work on ideas for the blog, of course!)
  • A new pair of Skullcandy headphones (the only headphones I use)
  • My favorite YBF lipstick (Check them out, I love the shade pumpkin spice)
  • Star Wars tissues (to go with my Vader bag, of course)
  • Iphone charger (can’t travel with out power)
  • A fun pair of sunglasses (designed by Merona)
  • The book A night in with Audrey Hepburn by Lucy Holliday ( loving it so far, book review after the vacation)
  • Of course my Disney Magic Band so we can jump straight to the magic when we land in Orlando

Love you all,
