Whitening Sensitive Teeth At Home!

Gooood morning, pals! How's it going? I'm so excited to share this blog post with you today! I collaborated with Smile Brilliant for this post and I can't say enough good things about this company and their products. 

So, what is Smile Brilliant?

Smile Brilliant is an at home teeth whitening kit that literally brings the effectiveness of a whitening treatment you would get at your dentists' office to your HOME for a fraction of the price. It's pure magic.

Your kit will include everything you need to make impressions for your own custom-fitted teeth whitening trays (you make the impressions, send them back, and a week later Smile Brilliant has sent you your own custom whitening trays)! Pretty cool, right? You'll also have plenty of whitening gel and desensitizing gel to use!

Why did it work for me?

  1. Decalcifications: I've struggled with decalfications on my teeth for as long as I can remember - basically spots on my teeth are whiter than the other parts. So, I always really shied away from whitening kits because usually they'd just make those spots BRIGHT white and the rest of my teeth would stay the same color. Talk about embarrassing, right? No bueno. BUT this all changed with Smile Brilliant - this kit works for my teeth and now I'm more confident with my smile than ever! 
  2. Sensitivity: Along with the decalcifications, my teeth are pretty sensitive. With Smile Brilliant's desensitizing gel I had VERY little sensitivity. Before even starting the whitening process I used the desensitizing gel for a few nights, which really seemed to help. After that, I aimed to whiten my teeth for 30-45 minutes 3-4 times per week, and used the desensitizing gel for about 15 minutes after each whitening session. 
  3. Coffee stains: This kit couldn't have come at a better time - with starting my first real, big girl job, coffee has become a daily occurrence and I had the stains to prove it. I mean, just check out my before picture below!

My teeth have come a LONG way with Smile Brilliant's whitening system as they were pretty stained. I didn't even realize the stains I had until I took the picture of my teeth after using the whitening system - it's crazy! I'll definitely be continuing to use Smile Brilliant to whiten my smile even more with my sister's upcoming wedding, as well as one of my friends.

Terrain Garden Cafe: One of My Favorite Places

Hey, guys, happy Wednesday! We're getting prettty close to the weekend :) 

Today's post is for my local readers. I wanted to share a bit about one of my favorite places with you!

One of my most favorite places is Terrain, which is in Glen Mills, PA.

Terrain is a garden center, gift store, cafe, and restaurant all in one. I love going there to just to look around! If you're like me and love things that are festive, you would love Terrain. They have tons of pumpkins, mums, and gourds outside. They also now have Christmas displays inside complete with trees, lights, and ornaments. I know, I know, it seems too early, but honestly I love anything holiday related, so I'm not complaining. 

Their food is also amazing, always. They serve organic dishes that are original and downright delicious! They're BYO which is also a nice touch.

Yesterday I went just to grab a hot drink to cozy up with and browse their gift store. I got my favorite drink - the apple cider chai. I still haven't gotten around with making one at home, but I'll keep ya posted when I do. Until then, if you live nearby the Glen Mills/Garnet Valley area head to Terrain to get yourself one - your tastebuds will not be disappointed!

I also walked around outside and enjoyed all the Fall feelings that I got from the never-ending mums, pumpkins, and gourds,

And then headed inside to the gift shop to see all of the Christmas decorations which made me want to start playing Christmas music and baking cookies ASAP...

These hot cider candles smell AMAZING and so cute that they come in a mug! It took all of my willpower not to buy one :P

As silly as it may sound, I think it's important to have a few "happy" places, like Terrain.

You know those places that just make you happier by being there? That's Terrain. It's one of those simple things that makes me happy by just going and looking around. Maybe it's because I love their love for the Holidays, or maybe it's how good the food is, or maybe it's a combination of a little bit of each! Either way, I think it's nice to have a few favorite places to go when you just need a little pick-me-up. So, if you're local to the area, head to Terrain this weekend. I promise you'll leave with a smile on your face, but I can't promise you that you'll leave with a full wallet - that place is dangerous, friends! 

What's one of your "happy places"? I'd love to know! Also, if you're a local reader let me know if you've been to Terrain before! Or if you haven't been and go this week, let me know how you like it.
