    Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening

    I brush, floss and use mouthwash twice a day. However, I drink coffee and/or tea at least once a day, if not more, and unfortunately caffeine stains teeth. Every once in a while I like to use whitening strips. In the past I’ve used Crest White Strips, but I have very sensitive gums and Crest White Strips would always hurt my gums. I wanted to try a new teeth whitener brand, and heard good reviews about Smile Brilliant, so I tried them out.

    Weekend Basics

    Even though it was cold this past weekend at least it was sunny out. My weekend basics are jeans, t-shirts and a warm jacket. If you’re looking for go-to basics, the best basics store is American Apparel. Unfortunately (if you haven’t heard by now), American Apparel is bankrupt and closing all its brick and mortar stores. So sad! Read more

    PurSHOEing Justice

    I’m on the Executive Committee for PurSHOEing Justice, a local Atlanta fundraising event coming up in 2 weeks. PurSHOEing Justice benefits the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation’s (‘AVLF’) Safe Families Office, a local non-profit organization, which helps more than 1,800 survivors of intimate partner violence each year. This fabulous event is designed to raise awareness around the legal issues facing domestic violence survivors, their families, and the volunteers and programs who help them.  The event will be held on Wednesday February 8, 2017 at King & Spalding in Midtown Atlanta.

    P.S. I Love Jord

    As I said in my last 7 Charming Sisters post, I’ve been investing in statement accessories. Watches have become more like jewelry, rather than a tool to tell time. Nowadays women often use their smartphones to keep track of the time and their busy schedules. Therefore, watches are a great way to jazz up an otherwise boring outfit. This weekend I ran errands at the Atlanta Belt Line and wore casual leggings and a t-shirt. But, I felt that my outfit had an extra pop with my new JORD watch.  Read more

    Statement Jewelry

    So one thing about me – I’m not the best with accessories. Two of my best friends have the best statement jewelry! Every time I visit them (one lives in Houston and the lives other is LA) I raid their jewelry stash for the weekend. Having the perfect earrings or necklace really takes an outfit from OK to fabulous.  As a result, I’ve been on the hunt for some new fashion jewelry for my wardrobe. Luckily I found 7 Charming Sisters. 7 Charming Sisters has unique, affordable and quality statement jewelry. I’m wearing the “Strike a Pose” necklace and I love how it’s feminine with the rose gold, but also a little edgy with the pointy pyramid pendants. I also got the “Pave the Way” necklace because I’m super girly and this beautiful necklace will go with most of my wardrobe.  Read more

    Lounging Around Attire

    Like the rest of the east coast this past weekend, Atlanta had inclement weather, which basically shut the city down. The South does not know how to handle bad weather. Friday night and Saturday morning we got freezing ice and rain. I spent the weekend snuggled up on the couch. The only times I left the house were to go shopping for a bit on Saturday (because not even inclement weather can keep me from shopping) and to run errands on Sunday.  Read more

    Tula Skin Care Products

    Over the years I’ve realized the importance of investing in quality skincare products. Luckily I’ve inherited great skin (thanks Mom and Dad), so I never used to care about spending a lot of money on skincare products.  However, it’s not just the way you look but also how you feel inside. There are so many great skincare products out there. Therefore, it’s really just a personal preference. But, I recently started using products from a new skincare company, TULA and I love them!
