Whether you’re traveling, heading to work or going to the gym, staying hydrated is always important. Contigo reached out to me and sent me their Contigo AutoSeal Chill. I have a lot of stainless steal cups from other brands, but I have to admit, I was so impressed when I used it. First, it’s Olympic blue! I mean.. How much better can you get? We’ve all been watching the Olympics and seeing all of the hard work the amazing athletes put into training and competing. So, it’s important to support Team USA. Second, staying hydrated is important in order to be healthy, but drinking plenty of water also helps keep your skin glowing. And, last but not least, who doesn’t love cold drinks?

Easy Ways to Obtain A Brighter Smile

3F4A7BE2-ABC3-40EA-AFA0-0A0407558AF3

There’s nothing more beautiful than a person who is beautiful on the inside, but society often makes people feel self conscious if they’re not flawless on the outside. Your smile is the first thing people notice about you. Unfortunately,  most do not feel comfortable showing their teeth when they smile. Well, I want to change that! I want to show you how you can obtain a brighter smile. If you follow my advice, I hope that this will not only increase the health of your teeth (and your body in general), but I also hope that it will increase your self confidence and make you happier with your appearance.

Easy Ways To Obtain A Brighter Smile —

Brushing
I know what you are thinking – brushing is obvious and everyone (or at least most people) do it daily. While this is true, I also think that a lot of people are doing it wrong. The American Dental Association says to brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush, which most people already do. The few parts that are essential and not being done by many are:

Make sure to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months, at most. If the bristles are frayed, replace them sooner. You need to make sure your brush is not worn so that it can do the job correctly and in addition to that, you need to make sure a bunch of germs aren’t hanging out on your brush.

You need to brush your teeth two minutes, two times a day. Like I mentioned above, so many people are focused on getting in and out of the bathroom so quickly that they do not actually take the time to brush for the proper amount of time, or in the proper way. Do you even know the proper way to brush? The ADA says to brush your at a 45-degree angle to the gums. You need to gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes, ensuring that you brush the outer surfaces, inner surfaces, and chewing surfaces of the teeth.

Flossing
Oh, flossing. Everyone seems to hate flossing, but it is so essential! When you brush, you are doing a great job of removing build up on your teeth, but a lot of the time, you are missing the hard to get areas between your teeth. The only way to get to those areas is by flossing. The ADA says that “more than 500 bacterial species can be found in plaque; some are good and some are bad for your mouth. Together with food debris, water and other components, the plaque buildup around the teeth and on the gum line will contribute to disease in teeth and gums.” You want to make sure you remove the bad bacterial species from your mouth by flossing.

Regular Dental Cleanings

Now that you know how important properly brushing and flossing is, we are going to talk about getting your teeth cleaned.Metro Decatur Dental Group PC says that during a dental cleaning, they remove any tartar and plaque from your teeth, which helps prevent gum disease. Although teeth cleaning is a routine appointment, you may not realize how important it actually is for your total health. Your health starts at your mouth, so you need to make sure you are keeping it healthy and making that a priority. If you are in the Georgia area, Dr. Gary Simms with Metro Decatur Dental Group PC is here to help you keep your mouth healthy. Their office is located in Decatur, Georgia and they are committed to providing patients with a caring a comprehensive approach to oral health.

Whitening Products
If you are looking for a low budget option that works, try out white strips, a customized whitening tray, or another whitening product. Obviously, these products do not work better than getting something straight from the dentist, but they can definitely help significantly and are a good option when you are on a budget. There are many options out there to choose from, so my recommendation would be to browse the products, look at reviews of the items you are considering, and try a few of them out. Buzzfeed actually wrote this article reviewing teeth whiteners that you can buy on Amazon that is really interesting.

Strawberries

I know that eating strawberries is a strange thing to include, but strawberries can, in fact whiten your teeth. The great thing about choosing this option is because of the fact that strawberries are a natural food and you know exactly what you are putting into your body. Strawberries contain quite a bit of malic acid, which is a tooth whitening agent, but they also contain sugar, so make sure to always brush after eating them in order to protect your teeth. One tip that I have heard of is crushing up strawberries and mixing them with baking soda, in order to form a paste. You can brush your teeth with this paste and it should help to whiten them. You can always just eat the strawberries, too.

You are a beautiful prize! Always remember to smile! Happy Friday, loves!

I have a lot of stainless steal cups from other brands, but I have to admit, I was so impressed when I used it. First, it’s Olympic blue! I mean.. How much better can you get? We’ve all been watching the Olympics and seeing all of the hard work the amazing athletes put into training and competing. So, it’s important to support Team USA.

The design of the Contigo chill allows drinks to stay cold for 28 hours. It also had an auto sealing cap which keeps spills from happening, and it keeps germs out! We are still in the midst of cold and flu season, so this is definitely a huge positive. Its also lightweight and compact. It’s not bulky. I carried my Contigo Chill this weekend as I was moving about at the airport. It fits nicely in my handbag and it’s also not too bulky to carry alone. Overall, I would rate the Contingo Chill high on a scale of 1-10. I’d say the Contigo Chill is in the compares to other stainless steel chills and it’s cost efficient. So, if your looking for a chill that fits your lifestyle, be sure to head on over to Contigo and check out their line of chills. There are various designs and price points that fit into every budget. Thanks so much for the gift, Contigo!

5 Things About Me-A Collaboration with Julie from GingerPhotog

Hey Loves!

We’re back! 😊 So, Julie and I were discussing ideas for blog posts, and we decided to create a fun blog post that would tell our amazing readers more about who we are. I love being able to get to know the people I follow on a personal level because I believe we all have more in common than just fashion. Although fashion is a love of mine, I also enjoy connecting with people. So, here are a few unique facts about me!

1) I’m a Counselor. I studied Counseling and Psychology at Troy University where I earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees. My graduate school experience was top notch. I was so blessed to have professors who were not only my mentors, but they were also some of the greatest friends anyone could have. It’s a blessing to have people in your life that recognize greatness in you before you even recognize it in yourself. Ever since I was a young child, I wanted to have a career that I could make someone’s life better. I wanted to be someone that changed the world, one person at a time.

2)I’m a retired beauty pageant queen. My mom entered me in pageants when I was 5 years old because I was painfully shy and I didn’t like to talk to anyone other than my teachers, family and close friends. Well, little did I know, pageants would soon become a hobby that I absolutely loved! I competed until I was 23 years old. One of my most memorable pageant queen experiences was when I won my hometown’s city pageant which then advanced me to the Miss National Peanut Frstival pageant. My experiences at Miss NPF were so amazing and we were treated like royalty. I also gained many life long friendships with talented and beautiful ladies that I absolutely adore. My mother always instilled me that being pageants wasn’t always about winning. She wanted me to do my best, but she also wanted me to learn how to compete with grace and poise regardless of if I walked away as the winner that evening or not. While competing in pageants, my love for fashion modeling grew and I also modeled.

3)I’m also an Inspirational Speaker and Writer(Inspirational Speaker Anita Ford on IG, FB and Twitter).  Yes, you read that correctly! I love the way God stretches us and molds us into who He wants us to become. God showed me my talents in writing and speaking many years ago, but I had no idea what He was going to do in order to use me for the Kingdom. I always tell people that when God places a calling in your heart, you will not truly experience living fully until you start walking in your purpose.

And, since Valentine’s Day is almost here, I’ll share some excerpts from my soulmate series.

4) I love surrounding myself with people who are authentic and intentional because I am the same way. I believe in quality friends versus  quantity. In this life, there will be people that you meet and you instantly connect with them. I believe those are the people that are meant to stay in your life and I’m so thankful for those sweet souls. I am someone who doesn’t enjoy facades and negativity. I believe in treating people right.

One of the most life changing things you could ever do in this life is surround yourself  with people who continuously root for your rise and you root for theirs. Life is too short to allow yourself to be around people who truly don’t care about you. Friendships aren’t meant to be one sided.  We are blessed to be a fountain that is overflowing, not a drain that is continuously draining people around us.

5) I’m comfortable in my own skin.

I can compliment other women without feeling threatened. I know that I am beautiful the God made me to be. I love all of my scars and life experiences because God has taken trials and tribulations and made me into the person I am today. I don’t believe in perfection. I don’t believe in competing or excluding other people. I believe in loving people right where they are in this life. In a world that wants to be flawless, I feel it’s more important to be real.
