Who knew brushing your teeth could be so much fun? Especially when you have matching ones from Quip! Did you know most people don’t take care of their teeth properly? You either brush too hard, unevenly, not long enough or don’t brush often enough! 

I actually think my dental hygiene got better after dating Andrew no lie. He is ALWAYS brushing his teeth so I had to step up my game LOL.

Quip has different options on the color choice which I really like, I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten which toothbrush was mine because we had the same colors… I chose the copper metal and Andrew chose the slate metal color. One thing I really like is the nifty dual-use cover that comes with them (not the plastic tube the base that it is in) which makes traveling with your electric toothbrush easier.

Did you know that you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time? The Quip has sensitive vibrations that use a built-in timer to pulse every 30 seconds and turn off after 2 minutes, helping guide a full and even clean.

How cool, you can mount the case to your mirror at home using a micro-suction strip! The subscription actually delivers new tubes of toothpaste as well when you run out.

Quip has made our life easier instead of running to the store every so often to go pick up new toothbrushes we get new brush heads delivered right to our door!

Dentist recommends that you change your bristles after 3 months because bristles become worn out and ineffective at cleaning. Why not pay $5 with free shipping for your bristles to be automatically refreshed.

Go getcha- self a Quip toothbrush!

Luther Nash Turns 2

Where has the last 2 years gone? Happy Birthday Luther Nash. Becoming a dog mom I have learned so much and gained such a great responsibility.

Andrew and I are in disbelief that this dude once was the size of our forearm. We have watched several home videos of the moments we have documented and are pinching ourselves on how fast time has gone by.

Of course we spoiled him with a peanut butter cake from Three Dog’s Bakery.Yes I know the 2 is backwards but running from the tripod and picking up the prop I was not prepared! LOL

I know I have said it probably way to much, but we got so lucky with Luther. He is seriously practically perfect- well no one/ dog is perfect but I have no complaints. Okay well maybe his breath sometimes and his barking but goodness- he’s so CUTE. Drew claims I love Luther more than him… and I just say “It is a different type of love.” Am I right? haha

Can I admit something- for the entire year up until a couple days when he turned one I thought his birthday was February 21… then I started looking through emails with his breeder and realized it was the 22! THE ENTIRE TIME WE HAD HIM I THOUGHT IT WAS THE 21st…for the first year NOPE the 22nd LOL! Dog mom of the year 😉 

Happy Birthday Luther Nash- Thanks for making me a dog mom and responsible human being.


Everyone needs a statement jacket

All winter long I have been looking for a good statement jacket. A winter jacket is always a must- for instance, a big north face, at least one that keeps you super warm. But you also need a coat that you can dress up and dress down. When I saw this coat floating around on Instagram I had to go into Madewell and try it on- This jacket is currently on sale as well as the heather grey one! I am wearing a size Small.

I am obsessed with my new ring from Jeulia <3

Go get yourself a statement jacket- you deserve it! I have went ahead and linked simlilar items and same items below!


Whitening sensitive teeth at home|| Smile Brilliant

The new year has begun and that means I have goals that I want to achieve! One huge goal of mine is keeping my teeth white and vibrant. I found the perfect solution by partnering up with Smile Brilliant. Keep scrolling to see my results and why I have added to this to the weekly routine to see what my secret is to keep my teeth staying bright <3 It is so easy!

Smile Brilliant is an easy and affordable way to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. The process is super easy! I never feel like I have time to do anything before heading to work and getting home so this process was perfect for me!

Smile Brilliant will send you a kit, you will make impressions with the mold to make your own retainers. As soon as that process is done you send them out, they arrive about 7-10 days after you send it out. I am always trying to find ways to keep my teeth brighter for the holiday season, especially with how many pictures get taken I always look at my teeth!

To get the best results I personally would go brush my teeth with just water and then apply the whitening gel in the trays and wear them for about 45 minutes. My teeth are very sensitive so I was actually nervous trying this entire process, but to be honest, I left them on for about 15-25 minutes, to begin with, and just stretched the timeout as I went on! So easy to do right before you go to work, I put them on before I get in the shower and take them off before I leave for work! 🙂

The orange is the whitening gel, I did mine every other day for the first week and then about 2-3 times a week and now just do it 1-2 times a week to maintain the brightness.

The purple labels are the sensitizing gel that helps if your teeth become sensitive. You would do if after you apply the whitening gel. I personally have sensitive teeth so just to be cautious I did use the sensitizing gel.

My before and after, as you can see my teeth already were pretty white this process just made my teeth a little brighter and great for maintaining brightness.
