Hello lovelies! 

Since I finally have a break from school I get the chance to go on vacation. With vacation coming up I have really tried to figure out what I will need to take to the beach. While surfing the web, looking for inspiration, I have found some wonderful ideas and I figured you guys would enjoy them too. 

Here are some of my beach necessities. 

You are going to need a big, floppy, CUTE hat to protect your face from those sun rays. 

If you plan to go into the water and surf, boogie board, etc, you are going to want a rash guard, trust me. Simons has a great selection of cute rash guards FYI. 

You need yourself a beach bag to keep all of your goodies in one place! 

Of course you are going to need a super cute swimming suit to show off. 

Sunscreen to keep your beautiful skin beautiful even longer. 

Some sunglasses because you will be blind if you plan to stay out on the beach all day without them. Plus they are cute, so why not?

What are your beach necessities?

Teeth Whitening Reviews by Smile Brilliant

Long time no see, lovelies! 
I'm so sorry for the lack of posting, but I have a good excuse, I swear. 
I have been very busy with school lately. I just finished my first semester of grad school and life has been pretty hectic! But - while I have these 5 weeks off I am going to try to post as much as I can to keep ya'll interested. ;) 

So, with that said, I am designating this post to a wonderful teeth whitening service that I have came to love. It is called "Smile Brilliant."

Here is how it works: 

You go to the website and give them the necessary information. 

You will get a package sent in the mail for you to take your impressions. 

After your impressions are taken, you send it back to the company. 

You wait a little bit, and soon the finished impressions are sent back to you through the mail. 

Once you have your impressions you begin using the whitening serum (between 5 minutes to 3 hours) for however long you'd like and your teeth begin to whiten. 

GUYS. This stuff is legit. It is exactly what dentists use (and charge 500+ bucks for) and you guys can do it, by yourself, in your own home. How can it get any better? 

 I had my boyfriend and sister try them out. Here were the results. (These pictures were not retouched in anyway. These are the actual results.)





Personally I have used Crest Whitening strips before, and let me tell you, those babies do not even compete with Smile Brilliant. Smile Brilliant really whitens, and it is so much easier to use the trays than the strips. 

And look at the results? You can't beat that. 

Additionally, we received the desensitizing gel (which is something that most whitening companies do not provide) which really helped my sister through this process. She has always suffered from sensitive teeth, and because of this desensitizing gel, she could actually whiten her teeth for once! 

Here are some more testimonials from those who have used this whitening treatment.
