New Year, New Me, New Blog?

Happy New Year Royals! I know it’s been quite a while since you all heard from me, but your girl has been BUSY! Since my last post in October, I’ve started a new job, we’ve bought a house (and moved into said house), celebrated my birthday and James’s, booked a wedding venue, and had our housewarming. Don’t worry, in the coming weeks we will be talking all things wedding and house buying, so you will get more in-depth updates. To be honest, I have totally neglected you all and I’ve missed my blogging family, but with the start of the new year I want to reconnect with all of you and find a way to make blogging a part of my routine.

If I’m being honest 9 times out of 10, I’m rocking my bare face, but that doesn’t mean I’m not using products to put my best face forward. If you’re like me and just too lazy to be bothered with makeup every morning, this lazy girl’s guide to a morning beauty routine is perfect for you! (more…)

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!

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…)
