You Never Stop Being a Dancer

Strong Skinnydancer back bendDancer stretchDANCER

Well, I literally danced my pants off… and I’m not sure what else to say about it. Lol

I just love dancing. Even if I don’t do it professionally or can’t find time in my schedule or budget for classes, I can never go too long without busting out a few moves.

Do you have any hobbies that you’ll likely never give up?

Love,

A Gypsy Dream

A Gypsy Dream Desert Girl Desert Gypsy Gypsy CostumeA last minute halloween costume ended up inspiring this fantasy shoot. With only a few moments to get ready for a halloween/birthday party this past Saturday morning, I threw together this simple gypsy look.

Will decided to take a back road on our way to the party and found this awesome photo spot. Isn’t it perfectly fitting?

I know most people only play dress-up once a year but I love creating fantasy looks year round. It’s so much fun!

I’m excited to hear what you think. Let me know what type of imaginative story comes to mind when you see this photo set.

tty soon,

Smile Brilliant Review & Giveaway!

Smile Brilliant KitMondays are tough but I’m about to make yours much better! Today I’m giving away a teeth whitening kit with custom-fit trays!

I was able to give this kit a try recently. I was really impressed with how quickly and how effectively it whitened my teeth. The custom trays result in a better fit and a better coverage. I’ve tried those strips you buy at the store (which are really expensive!) and had some bad luck. Not only did they not fit well, they  barely whitened my teeth! They also caused some very uncomfortable sensitivity.

Whitening Kit

Smile Brilliant’s kit not only comes with custom trays and whitening gel, they also provide you with desensitizing gel to keep you from having to experience the discomfort that is often associated with whitening your teeth.

You will need to set aside some time in which to use the kit, it’s not a fifteen minute process but you can do a lot of other things while you have your trays in (laundry, netflix, read, etc.).

I was really surprised how much whiter my teeth became after doing just one treatment. I was also surprised that they didn’t become instantly re-stained after having a coffee-filled week!

I did have a little trouble trying to figure out how much gel to put in my trays because I always seemed to have excess spilling out over my gums and teeth. It was a little messy and bothersome. I also didn’t like having to wear it for an hour. BUT, I can also be a bit of a baby. Lol

Will, my fiancé, tried out the whitening kit too and had no issue. He thought it was super easy to use and had no problem working on his laptop while he had his trays in. Like, I said, me = baby. I just wanted to be honest with you. Rarely do different people have the same exact experience with a product.

Overall, I think you will be very happy with the results Smile Brilliant can give you. And if you find yourself with questions or concerns, don’t worry… they have great customer service!

Now for the fun part, the giveaway!

A Rainstorm for Butterflies

Butterfly Kisses A butterfly cannot fly in rain. Not only would the heavy drops knock the beautiful winged insect from the sky, the butterfly itself needs the warm rays of the sun to heat it’s flight muscles. But today is different. My sparkly butterflies are completely at ease amidst my water droplet nails.

I was inspired by the name of my new nail polish, Rainstorm by Sinful Colors. I’m loving the fantasy element of this post and hope you are too! More creative and whimsical posts to come!
