How to Get a Straighter Smile with Invisalign & Krieger Orthodontics

I met with Dr. Krieger for my complimentary consultation, and we talked about my options. At 26 there was no getting me back into braces, so Invisalign was the best option (the only one I was willing to work with). I started on the SimplyStr8 Program and at the time this article is being written, I am about 13 weeks in.

How To Rehydrate Skin Quickly

The weather in Dallas has been yo-yo-ing so much lately and my skin can’t keep up! As soon as the temperatures drop, my skin dries out, and it isn’t a good look. Additionally I travel a lot this time of year, so the airplanes alone can wreak havoc on my skin’s hydration. It’s usually a nightmare, but this season I’ve found a solution from Olay, in their new Mists, which not only hydrate my skin quickly, but also helps energize or calm me depending on the scents I use.

Serena and Lily Bedding

I have needed new bedding since Kale and I moved in together, all the way back in March. Somehow, when we turned on the light at night, my gray bedding turned green! It was a cruel trick of light, that we just couldn’t figure out, but it looked horrendous. Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, Mia, my younger and more curious dog, started eating the pom poms off the edges! She got about half way around before I figured out where they were all going. Mind you, I had this duvet cover for years and never had this issue! Needless to say I have been over due for a bedding upgrade. When Serena and Lily reached out to me about their new store opening in Dallas, I was all to excited to jump at the chance to pick out new bedding.

How to Get Organized and Keep Your Sanity: An Erin Condren Life Planner Review

I’ve always loved planners, so when I discovered Erin Condren I was a little too excited about it. I used to walk around with a notebook or planner and completely forget to use it. At one point I realized I was just carrying it around to make myself feel like I had it together. It’s not that I thought I could remember everything, it’s more that I wasn’t in a habit of using one. Last year I was determined to get my ish together and really make sure I had my job and my blog to-do’s in order. I had heard all about the Erin Condren Life Planner and decided it was the one for me!
