HOW TO: Motorcycle Jacket

One of my favorite articles of clothing of ALL time is the motorcycle jacket. It’s so versatile and there are so many way to wear it. It can really revv up an outfit! Want to wear one, but don’t know how to style it? Here’s some inspiration.

 

Pair a girly floral-patterned one with pretty, flowy skirt…

Brush Whiten GO! with Colgate Optic White

I was so excited when I found out that I was receiving the Colgate Optic White Voxbox from Influenster! Getting my teeth whiter and keeping them white is a concern of mine. I drink a lot of coffee and tea, so this can be a problem for me. In the Voxbox, I received the new Optic White toothbrush + built-in whitening pen, Optic White toothpaste and some coupons for the toothbrush + built-in whitening pen.

After reading the directions on the box, I was kind of skeptical. This is how it works:

1. Brush your teeth.

2. Apply the whitening gel on your teeth.

3. Go!

In 2 days of using it (2 times per day), you should have whiter teeth. It seems a little too easy, right? Well, let’s see how I did. This is before I started using the Optic White toothbrush + built-in whitening pen and Optic White toothpaste.

And this is after two days of use.

Unfortunately, the lighting in my bathroom stinks, so it’s hard to see, but there is definitely a difference after two days of continuous use. (And that’s with drinking coffee and tea!)

The Verdict

I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in whitening their teeth and lead a busy lifestyle. It’s very easy and convenient to use. I really liked the toothbrush too because it had rubber inserts in it that felt good on my gums and teeth. The Optic White toothpaste has a good flavor and leaves my mouth feeling clean and fresh. The whitening pen is so much easier to use than whitening strips and trays. Overall, I had a very positive experience with this product!

MY HOLIDAY WISH LIST & GIFT SHOPPING

The holidays are coming up pretty fast and I can’t believe it! Soon the hubby and I will be heading to see family for Thanksgiving. All the women in my family has a tradition every year of getting up SUPER early on Black Friday and going shopping for gifts. This is something that I always look forward to every year because I get to spend time with my mom and sister! There are a couple Black Friday deals that I have my eye on this year. I try to only buy gifts for others, but I have to admit…if I find a good deal, sometimes I’ll nab something for myself! Do you guys brave the cold and crowds to go shopping on Black Friday? Do you only buy for others or do you snatch something for yourself too?

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS…

Although my husband absolutely hates the sound of music, I think it is brilliant. It also doesn’t hurt that Julie Andrews stars in it…I mean she is all things pleasant. (Anyone else have fond memories of Mary Poppins?) After having the song stuck in my head for the whole day, I decided to do a post on MY favorite things.
