The Power of Your Smile


I have always been a smile girl, in fact, rarely will you find a picture of me without a smile, simply because I like how my face looks with a big, toothy grin.   Therefore, making sure I have white teeth has always been a priority and I have religiously whitened teeth at home every 6 months using a teeth whitening kit.   Sadly, the issue with those is that I also have sensitive teeth (thanks, beautiful process of aging) and have used those kits less and less because they hurt.  I have also tried professional teeth whitening but didn't see a huge difference as she said my teeth were quite white already.  Which is a problem I'm okay with having? I have friends who don't like to smile in pictures when they're next to me because my teeth are always white.   You'd think from all the red wine I drink that  I would have red teeth...but no.....

Here are a few things to know before buying a teeth whitening kit:

So when Smile Brilliant offered to send me custom fitted teeth whitening trays in exchange for my honest review, I was thrilled and very eager to try this process at home and partner with this company.

First step was to make the molds and then send them back so they could create the custom fitted trays.  The process took maybe 15 minutes and then I sent them away.  A couple weeks later I received my trays and was ready to go.  I started the process in early December and completed all the tubes last week.  I would alternate nights as I have sensitive teeth and didn't want to feel that hurt.  One thing I noticed was how effective the desensitizing gel was for after the treatment; I could rarely notice the next day that I had done a treatment.

The other thing I noticed that was better with Smile Brilliant than any other treatment I have tried is that it actually whitened my lower teeth.  Most times I could still see some yellow but with this it made the majority of it disappear.  The other aspect I noticed is the colour of the really was brilliant.  Like a crisp, look at me, I should be a celebrity, white.

So for someone with already quite white teeth, I was thoroughly impressed with the level of white I got my teeth to, the lack of hurt and the overall simplicity of the treatment.  A definite 2 thumbs up from me!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....

Anyway, I'm's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'s sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
