Crest challenge complete peeps! Make sure you go read my previous post, which shows you my photos before I started the Crest 3D White Whitestrips challenge. I used them everyday for 2 weeks, for an hour each day – super easy. I basically put them on each night when I was doing things around the house – organizing my closet (my worst chore) or doing the dishes (my second worst chore). You pretty much forget the strips are on your teeth since they aren’t a bother at all. I mean, my smile is really blinging you guys. Who even uses the word blinging? I don’t know, but its how I feel about my teeth at this very moment. Not sure my teeth have ever been this white before – for serious. Its kind of embar that I didn’t do this little jig before our wedding. But it doesn’t matter, now I am a hot wife with white hot teeth – YEAH! Can you see the difference? I feel like I really can.
P.S. – if you haven’t already seen, I chopped all of my hair off. So these photos are the last you will see with these long luscious locks for a while. RIP 12 inches of my hair and another lady’s hair because I had extensions. RIP.
Last year, we moved into a new house. This year, we moved into a new house. WTF, I know. If you read this post, you can get some more info on that debacle but in the meantime lets talk about all of the design lessons I learned from this experience. One of them was buying furniture that only fits the space that you bought it for. Case and point – we bought a giant, comfy sectional sofa that fit perfect in our old living room. New living room – not so much. Mike and I are city people, so owning versatile, apartment sized furniture is a must. The pieces we buy need to be adaptable so they can work in different rooms if we need them to. I need to make smarter design decisions at this point in my life since we don’t own a home yet. Not that owning a home means you can make awful design decisions (don’t do that). Homeowners just have a little bit more security when purchasing furniture and art for their home than renters do.
I have been trying to be more careful when picking out furniture for our new house. I have been eying pieces that are statement makers, that I really, really love and can always find a spot somewhere in a new home. The furniture and decor I have been drooling over lately have lots of color – navy velvet sofas, ikat printed ottomans, over-dyed rugs, and the list goes on and on. I just want to ensure no matter what I buy for this house will be able to translate to the next. You would think I should probably pick muted, neutrals right? No, thank you. I love a good statement piece. Although we did buy thissofa in a super neutral hue so we don’t have any problems in the couch space next time. Here are some of my favorite statement making pieces for our home right now.
So I am generally not a teeth whitener. I brush my teeth twice a day, and sometimes pretend to floss when I am going to the dentist soon. I’ve always used whitening toothpaste, but I have never really gone out of my way to buy any type of whitening kit in the past. I guess I should consider doing some whitening regimens from time to time since I am a regular coffee and red wine drinker but it just has always been one of those things that didn’t cross my mind. Plus, I felt like my teeth were pretty white on their own.
So when Crest asked me to try their “2 Weeks to your Whitest Smile” challenge, I figured I would give it a go, especially since Crest is my go to brand for toothpaste anyway. Now that I have finished my challenge, I am sharing my journey with you right here on CP. These photos were taken before I started using the new Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme Flexfit & 3D Glamorous White toothpaste. By the way, you can thank Fergie for the reason I know how to spell glamorous (literally singing her song as I type the word). Anyway, I am pretty stunned by the results after only 2 weeks of using the strips. My teeth were noticeably whiter within a few days of consistent use. I would totally use these again, especially when I have an event coming up (wish I did this for my wedding), or just on the reg to have the whitest smile in town. I am going to be sharing photos on instagram of the results as well as the after photos here on the blog so you can see the true difference in my smile. I would love to hear your teeth whitening tricks since I am so new to the teeth whitening game.
