At Home Whitening for Mom + Giveaway!

 The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!
Are you still looking for the perfect Mother's Day gift?  Maybe something that is different than the typical candy and flowers. Something that will make mom(or yourself) feel better when looking in the mirror or facing the world. If so we have a great idea --it's the Smile Brilliant Home Teeth Whitening Kit. 

Smiles are so important, why not give mom or yourself the gift of whiter teeth! I recently partnered with Smile Brilliant to give their DIY Custom Teeth Whitening Trays a try and I am so excited to share my experience with you. 
There were several things I first thought of when introduced to this at home teeth whitening kit. Number one --How much does it cost and how hard will it be for me to do myself. I figured it would be so expensive like most at home beauty products that promise big results such as whiter teeth. However, Smile Brilliant delivers the #1 dentist recommended teeth whitening procedure directly to your door at a fraction of the cost a dentist charges, up to 70% less

Custom fitting the trays myself was super easy too. Smile Brilliant gives you a step-by-step guide that walks you through the tray molding process and even sends extra just in case you mess up. Once you get your teeth impressions made you simply package them up in the prepaid envelope included in the kit and send to the lab.  Once they receive and custom make your trays you get them back 3 to 5 times faster than the dentist office could and you'll be ready to start whitening in no time.

Another thing I was worried about was sensitivity. If you've ever whitened before either using strips or even had a professional UV light treatment done you know that sensitivity can occur. It's normal to experience some sensitivity and up to 60% of us will experience it at one time or another. Smile Brilliant not only offers their vegan and cruelty-free Whitening Gel's, but they also offer you their Desensitizing Gel which is scientifically engineered to reduce tooth sensitivity and help prevent re-staining. 


So would I recommend Smile Brilliant's Teeth Whitening Kit? YES!! For a busy mom who also loves to drink tea I highly recommend this at home whitening kit. It was easy to make my impressions, easy to pop the whitening trays in before bed or in the morning as I was getting ready, taking the kids to school etc and the best part? My results....

After just a few weeks of whitening my teeth they are noticeably whiter. When you're smile looks good you feel so much more confident about yourself. It's amazing how tea can really stain your teeth, if you're a coffee drinker this kit would be perfect for you too. I will definitely be continuing this beauty regimen to keep my teeth looking whiter and brighter.

If you're looking for a fun Mother's Day Gift or a little treat for your own pampering Smile Brilliant has a great offer going on right now.

Create the prettiest atmosphere this Mother's Day with decorations from Oriental Trading...

 The Jackson Five Family received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader feature. However, all opinions are honest and our own!

Throwing a Mother's Day celebration this year? Look no further, Oriental Trading has everything you need to decorate. Whether you're hosting a Mother's Day Brunch, a fun afternoon tea party, or an elegant dinner they have all the supplies you need to create the prettiest atmosphere.

I'm loving the color mint this spring and had so much fun picking out some fun decorations from Oriental Trading.

By simply adding this Pleated Mint Green Table Skirt to my table and a fun table cloth on top it dressed up an otherwise ordinary space. 

One of the hottest trends right now is decorating with Pint Ball Mason Jars. Leave them clear and fill them up with fun items like these Large Shimmer White Gumballs or spray paint them a fun color to add a prettier touch. Love how they turned out using chalk paint.

Once painted they were perfect for holding these adorable Gold and Mint Striped Paper Straws I found on the Oriental Trading site and plastic utensils.

 The straws are so cute in these sprinkled rimmed glasses filled with sparkling water.

Another fun addition to the room is the Mint Green Tassel Garland and these Mint Green Striped Hanging Paper Lanterns that were so easy to hang for a fun touch to the ceiling and walls.

I paired these Oriental Trading decorations with some pretty plates, a cute sign and matching gift boxes that I already had for a really cute setup and a Mother's Day to remember for a long time.
You have plenty of time left before Mother's Day, Sunday May 14th to get your decorations ordered.

April showers bring May flowers --stay dry and be fasionable with the Cirra Umbrella collection by ShedRain at Target...

April showers bring May flowers --

 It's may 1st and that couldn't be more true here in Ohio. It's been a rainy, chilly mess these past few days and we're supposed to get more rain here in the next week.

I'm not going to let the raindrops and gloomy weather get me down because I'll be hiding under the cutest umbrellas from Cirra by ShedRain, a new collection sold at Target.

The collection includes so many cute styles I love the ones I received--the floral Compact umbrella is perfect for toting around in my purse. I love the auto open/close button on this one that makes it easy to take into stores and quickly get in and out of the car, one push of the button and the umbrella is open or closed and the fun floral pattern is so cute for spring!

The  striped bubble umbrella is the perfect umbrella to take to the boys balls games as the bubble shape offers a little bit more side protection to keep me nice and dry and the black and white stripes go good with all of my cute ball gear!

Last, but not least is the polka dotted Stick umbrella which is classic and fashionable. It features the cutest long wooden handle and big fun polka dots --my fave!


ShedRain is the oldest and most honored umbrella manufacturer in the country. It's family-owned and they offer a quality collection for the whole family.

This amazing collection for Spring and Summer 2017 is drawing inspiration from the style makers of the world --from the runways of Paris, London, and New York to the chic trendsetters on the streets! I'm loving all of the different patterns, sizes and styles there are to choose from and I love that the Cirra collection can be found at Target for affordable prices!
