Red Marble Pants

One of my favorite trends lately is the marble trend. The marble print is going on everything and I’m really not mad about it! I bought my first pair of marble print pants from Firepower back around last Christmas, and I was so in love with the print AND the fit that I couldn’t wait to get more.

My fitness coach Alyx, the owner and boss babe behind FirepowerFit, knew how much I loved my white marble pants, so I was beyond thrilled when she reached out to me for a few color ideas on this new line of marble apparel from Firepower! My first thought was RED. If you know me, you know red, white, and blue is one of my number 1 color schemes (#Merica), so I thought red would be perfect to coordinate with pretty much anything.

I absolutely LOVE how these turned out! My first pair were the full length version, and these are the cropped which is perfect for warmer weather. The quality of these is great! And squat proof, because I don’t buy yoga pants that aren’t squat proof 😉

On another note- it’s almost Friday already! Yay. I’m currently swooning over this fall-like weather. If you haven’t worked out yet today, take your workout outside! Get your vitamin D fix! It does all kinds of good to your body when you get some vitamin D from the sunshine. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium. So even if it’s a ten minute walk outside on your lunch break, your body will thank you!

Tropical Vibes

Happy Monday! It’s almost the best holiday ever and I’m so excited! I love the 4th of July and can’t wait to celebrate how awesome our country is 🙂

There’s a kind of funny story behind this shirt. I actually bought it two years ago and just cut the tags off and wore it this week. I got it back when I lived in Colorado after Jon proposed because I thought it’d be great for our honeymoon. I started stocking up on cute, beachy clothes and just saved them all for after the wedding. Well… here we are two years later and we haven’t gotten around to taking our honeymoon haha! Life gets crazy like that.

Anyways, I finally decided to just cut the tags and wear it – especially since palm prints are SO in this season. I have decided it’s time to just start stocking up on a new set of honeymoon clothes by now 😉 We are trying to take our trip this winter so hopefully life will allow us to slow down and take it!

I also have a broken toe right now, so just ignore the giant white tape on my foot. Another one of life’s LOL moments that you just have to roll with. I’ve had lots of those lately.

Anyways, this shirt is Show Me Your Mumu so it’s probably no longer in stock BUT I know they have tons of NEW fabulous tropical prints in stock now!! I got mine through Riffraff.

Shoes are forever21 and pants are Target! I feel like I’m always saying, “Oh thanks I got it at Target.” I might have a problem.

I’m off to the beach — have the best 4th of July ever! Thanks for reading!

Smiling Fearlessly with Smile Brilliant

I have been so excited to post this for you guys. I want to share with you the experience I’ve had with my new favorite way to whiten teeth – Smile Brilliant!

Because I know many of you (if not ALL) are probably on your second cup of coffee by now, let’s be real.

So, let’s rewind a few years to when I was in college… back when my coffee addiction began. It was my junior year, I had just transferred and changed majors AND gotten a new job, so my life suddenly got REAL busy. My life became: eat, class, work, study, repeat. Notice how there is no “sleep” in that pattern… because I truly rarely slept! I turned to coffee. I had made it to 21 without HAVING to have coffee in my life. But y’all… that year I just couldn’t live without it! The addiction had begun. I drank it alllllll the time, several times a day most days.

Now, here I am, still in a committed relationship with coffee. I have tried to quit coffee numerous times. It just doesn’t work out! I even do decaf (ugh I just cringed at myself) sometimes, but never quitting coffee. And don’t get me started on wine!! I had recently tried Crest white strips, but wasn’t a huge fan of them because of how difficult they were to keep on. When I wore them, they slipped off my teeth almost every time, so I felt like it was a waste. I had finally accepted that my teeth will probably never reach their full, whiteness potential.

Being a blogger and all, it’s impossible not to want a fresher, whiter smile – it’s our biggest accessory! But we also want convenience, am I right? Enter Smile Brilliant! I’m so glad that I found a whitening kit that is EASY and that WORKS.

Here’s the rundown:

Smile Brilliant is an at home teeth whitening system that has really figured it out. They are recommended by more dentists than any other whitening product! And can whiten your teeth for 70% of your dentist’s cost, and over twice as fast! Amazing, right?!

After receiving your whitening kit, you send in your teeth molds (don’t worry – they pay for your shipping to send it back!). Then they send your custom-fitted trays straight to your door, and boom you can get started!

First of all, the step-by-step instructions are very user friendly and easy to understand! I loved this because when using a product with multiple steps, I need it all thoroughly described or I worry I’m doing it wrong. This seemed so easy!

Another thing I loved about this process, is the custom teeth trays. They actually stay in place, unlike most strips I’ve used that slide off your teeth when wearing them. I can actually do things and talk (just with a slight lisp haha) while I have them in without worrying about them messing up or slipping off my teeth. Because who has time to just sit there while you wait?!

Now for the question you’re probably already asking in your head – does it give you tooth sensitivity? While I definitely experienced some mild sensitivity while the trays were in, I hardly felt any once I was done using them. The only time I had any gum pain was during the whitening (because the gel was touching my gums slightly). It does burn a bit at first, and may be a bit uncomfortable, but nothing too crazy. Fortunately, they provide you with a desensitizing gel to use after the wwhitening gel! This seemed to help my gums a lot! I was so thankful for this, because I hate when my teeth get sensitive, and any other whitener I’ve used makes them sensitive. I’m sure everyone’s teeth/gums are different, but for me it was very minimal sensitivity. If you do experience some though, they have tips for helping ease it 🙂

My favorite thing about the custom whitening trays? THEY WORK! I noticed a difference within a couple times of using them. It’s honestly pretty amazing to watch your teeth change within a couple weeks’ time! I’ll share my before and after photos below so you can see for yourself.

I would 100% recommend Smile Brilliant if you’re looking to whiten your teeth. Not only does the product work, but the customer service is extremely helpful and kind. I even messed up one of my first molds I sent in for my trays, and they quickly sent me a second round so that I could try again! They were helpful in how to properly do it and were very patient. I also received everything in the mail promptly and quickly!

Before showing off my Before’s and After’s, let’s talk GIVEAWAY! I’m teaming with Smile Brilliant to give away a customized tray creation kit!!

Top 5 Gifts for Her

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through January! It seems like once Christmas ends, time just flies basically until next Christmas. I have a good feeling about 2017, and I hope all of you do as well 🙂

Speaking of time absolutely flying, it’s only ONE month until Valentine’s Day, guys! Yes, men, looking at you (if any of you are actually reading this, lol). So I decided to put together my top 5 gifts for Valentine’s Day 2017! I absolutely love all of these items, and I hope it helps you or at least points you in the right direction if you’re struggling with gift ideas! Here we go.

1. JORD Wood Watch. Because every girl needs time piece, am I right?! I’ve posted about these watches before, and I will probably post about them again, because they are THAT amazing. They’re so unique and beautiful. I have gotten SO many complements on mine just in the short time I’ve owned it. If you go to my previous post (titled JORD Wood Watch) you can enter the giveaway and even if you don’t win, you’ll still get a gift card!!! This is not a drill.

2. Firepower Fit Apparel. Because 98% of the female population is all “I’ma get fit in 2017” right now. I’m talking about myself here too don’t worry. Anyways, there’s not a girl out there who doesn’t love getting new workout gear. It’s motivating and it makes us feel cute and athletic all at the same time. Which brings me to Firepower!! I will be doing more posts featuring their stuff, but let me just tell you it is the best quality yoga pants you’ll find. It’s like Lulu quality but for VS price. Get what I mean? The best of both worlds. It’s fashionable, yet athletic, and it you can literally feel how well it’s made. I highly recommend! You can get a discount HERE with code “Reasoner”! I got these bad@$$ marble leggings and I’m in love.

img_08793. Michael Kors Bag. You guys… my husband got me this bag for Christmas and I literally had tears in my eyes. So trust me, you can’t go wrong with this one – unless she’s the type that hates large purses. Then maybe go for a smaller one. This one fits basically anything in it – laptops and bottles of wine included, the color matches everything I own, and the style is timeless. A win all around!

4. Hussar Wireless Headphones. Okay, have you ever been in the gym, doin’ your thing on the treadmill, and all of a sudden your elbow catches the wire of your headphones and before you know it your phone is sliding across the gym floor and you’re trying not to lose your balance and simultaneously have a heart attack over your screen possibly being shattered? Holy run-on sentence. Yeah don’t lie, I know it’s happened. You can help your girl avoid that problem by switching to wireless headphones (if she hasn’t already)! I am obsessed with these wireless headphones and haven’t dropped my phone in the gym since getting them! They sound incredible and are super easy to use. Plus affordable! Hit up Amazon prime (here).

5. Date Night. This one’s a little different than all the rest… BUT hear me out. If you don’t want to get her any of these things, or if she already has them, you can never go wrong with planning her an incredible date night/weekend! Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes I’d rather just go get away somewhere with my husband than just getting a gift. Make some memories, eat some great food, and have fun. Take her to her favorite place to eat, take her shopping, go to a concert of her favorite band, etc. There are so many fun ideas out there, just pick somewhere and go!

Hope this helps a bit! Thanks for reading, as always. Have the best Thursday! Cheers to tomorrow being FriYAY.
