Brighten Your Smile with Affordable Teeth Whitening

This post was sponsored by Smile Brilliant. All words and opinions are mine and mine alone. Please see my full disclosure statement for more information.

I don’t know anyone that doesn’t yearn to have a brighter and whiter smile. There was a point in time where teeth whitening was reserved for the wealthy, but fortunately it is now something very affordable that you can do it right at home! Smile Brilliant, a professional at home teeth whitening kit, was created by a dental professional with more than 30 years of experience. The company came to be after realizing that majority of the cost & time associated with professional teeth whitening revolves mostly around trips to the dentist. To reduce cost and time, the Smile Brilliant founder developed a system that allows customers to make their own dental impressions right at home! (more…)

Spring has officially sprung and the race is on to get your body summer ready! For over a year, the Boy and I have been trying to make exercise a regular part of our routine. As I’m sure you can imagine, we go through phases where we are in the gym 5x/week and others where we skip a whole week.

My Top 3 Dog-Friendly Places in St. Louis

Spring is doing its best to make an early entrance, with warmer temperatures and confused blooming plants. Though I’m in no way an outdoorsy person, I’ve been loving these warmer temperatures and trying to spend a little more time outside. I’m not the only one at my house happy to see winter coming to an end, the dogs are ecstatic too. Trips to go potty have gotten quite a bit longer and I basically have to drag them back inside. They also seem more eager to go on car rides so I’ve decided to make an effort to start hanging out at more dog-friendly places. (more…)

GUEST POST: Romantic Spots in St. Louis to Take That Special Someone

February is here, which means Valentine’s day is in a couple of weeks. I always struggle to make good Valentine’s Day plans. I can easily plan a romantic getaway or a low-key sexy night at home, but when it comes to trying to find something in the middle, I’m always lost.

I don’t see my home city as “romantic”, but with my desire to find a little romance in the gateway to the Midwest, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. So let’s see what romantic spots in St. Louis, Andy has deemed as perfect: (more…)
