Good morning friends! Your smile is one of the first things that people notice about you, so I am so excited to be teaming up with Smile Brilliant today to share how I’ve been whitening & brightening my smile! This is something that I have struggled with for as long as I can remember. As most of you know, I love coffee & red wine, neither of which are ideal for keeping your smile sparkly white. Over the counter whitening products never did much for me, so when Smile Brilliant reached out, I was eager to give their professional system a try. I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am with my results & the Smile Brilliant at-home teeth whitening system! The Smile Brilliant custom teeth whitening kit is just like what you’d receive at a dentist’s office, at a fraction of the cost. Plus, Smile Brilliant makes it so easy to get custom teeth whitening trays from the comfort of your home – their kit contains everything you need!

TGIF friends! We had a great weekend in Dallas last weekend! I love that Dallas is so close to home & we try to get over there every few months. On Friday night we had dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant there, Avanti, then had some Mexican for brunch on Saturday. Saturday night was the Empower dinner, hosted by Elise Woods, of Prim and Lovely, & Amanda Smith. It was an amazing event, with some truly inspiring women, beautiful flowers & table settings, & great food. One of my favorite parts of blogging has been getting to know other women who also want to support, empower, & inspire each other, rather than just compete. We also got to hang out with an old friend who recently moved to Dallas & it was wonderful to see him. This week went by in a flash, even though we didn’t have much going on after work. We’re gearing up for a vacation in a little over a week, so I’ve been working hard to get everything handled at the office & home so that I can unplug on our trip. This weekend, I’m hoping to get ahead on some work & start packing!
You guys know I love a good sale & the Shopbop Spring Sale is a really good one! You get 20% off orders under $500 and 25% off orders $500 or more with the code EVENT18! It’s the perfect time to stock up on spring favorites. I took the opportunity to grab a new cover-up & sandals for my up-coming vacation! I already have these Sam Edelman sandals in 2 colors & they are some of my most-worn heels. Finally, this bar necklace is available in gold or silver & is an easy layering piece for any look. Here are some more of my favorite picks!
Happy Monday guys! I’m back today with another round of my favorite books! I’m planning to make these reviews a more regular feature since I read so much, typically 5-6 books per month. This list is a mix of the thrillers, contemporary fiction, & YA novels that I’ve read in the last few months. Let me know if you have any recommendations for me!
Good morning & Happy Good Friday lovelies! It was a short work week for me since I’m off today. While I love a 3 day weekend, it’s always hard cramming a full work week into 4 days. This week was a little easier since we didn’t have a lot to do after work, so I got to recuperate from a really busy weekend. We had our Rotary Club’s Doughnut Dash 5K on Saturday morning & it was huge success. Everyone had a great time raising money for the MLK Health Center & Pharmacy, eating doughnuts, & drinking some great Red River beer! After a quick nap, we headed out to a surprise crawfish boil for my bestie’s FIL. I have no idea how we managed to keep it a secret from him! We don’t have big plans this weekend, so I’m looking forward to checking some things off the to-do list & relaxing! For those that have been keeping up with the saga of the abandoned cats, both Little White Cat & Fluffy Brown Cat have made it to their new home. I already miss them, but my Cat was not happy having them in the house, so it was best for them to go to a new home.
