Whitening Coffee Stains

Being A Coffee Lover Who Also Wants to Keep A Bright Smile

     Most days I am on the go with being a mom and college student, so of course I need my daily cup of coffee or two. Being the coffee lover that I am has come with something I don’t love so much, yellowing of teeth. Anyone who knows me, knows I won’t give up my coffee easily. Smile Brilliant was the perfect solution to gaining back a brighter smile while I could still enjoy a cup of coffee.


My experience with store-bought products vs. Smile Brilliant

    I have tried a store bought whitening product in the past. I didn’t like the way the product felt on my teeth. I’d even question if I was really doing the job because I wasn’t seeing results I hoped for. When first receiving my Smile Brilliant kit I was amazed by all it came with and how it’s works. Clear step by step directions where provided. What makes Smile Brilliant unique is that you get to send in a mold of your teeth that is used to create custom trays that fit around your teeth perfectly. It not only comes with the whitening gel syringe, but a desensitizing gel syringe as well. The desensitizing gel helps with tooth sensitivity and prevents future staining. Each syringe holds gel for up to 3-4 whitening sessions. That’s pretty awesome! Another thing I love about the trays are that the gel doesn’t leak out when applying the proper amount since they cup to my teeth so well. It made the process so much more comfortable.

When to Whiten

     When it comes to whitening, you can do it at any time of the day that works best for you. My favorite times to whiten would be while watching Netflix after dinner, cleaning my house, getting ready for the day and even while hanging out with friends. The trays fit my teeth so well, I could still carry on normal conversations as ease. If you have a busy day ahead of you, you could even whiten while running an errand. The trays are clear, not making them very noticeable.

Happy with My Results

    I can honestly say I am happy with my results after using Smile Brilliant. My husband has also noticed the difference as well. I feel more confident about my teeth and want to continue on whitening since I do love my coffee! If you’ve been interested in brightening your smile, I highly recommend going to with Smile Brilliant. You will get to whiten in a unique and much more comfortable way, leaving you much more satisfied with your teeth whitening experience.

The Homeless Heart


Have you ever heard the saying, “Home is where the heart is?” When we hear the word heart in that sentence we know it’s not literally the organ beating in the chest. Where your heart lies in this sense is directed towards what you love, what guides you and brings meaning to your life. It’s tied in with the soul.

From Identity Crisis to Identity in Christ

My mom knows I love planners, so she bought me one for my birthday. Its front cover says, “Plan out your future and make your dreams reality.” Whenever I read these words my mind goes to these two verses:  

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.” Psalms 37:23-24(NLT)

Comparing Squares

Comparing lives through social media has been an ongoing issue. One thing I can say is that I get it! I’ve experienced thinking I wasn’t good enough because I’d see someone else’s”perfect life” in those squared photos.  At least that’s what I thought. We do this on Continue reading

Do Your Thang Mama

Motherhood has always come with its challenges. People will always have opinions on what a mother should or should not do. Five people on the right will be suggesting one thing while five on the left suggest the complete opposite. Hey I’m all for being teachable, but if you see a mom that prefers to do her mommy thing differently than you, you can’t force her to do what you would do as a mom. Every woman is made to mother in a unique way because her child is also uniquely made and different from yours. Each mom has her own style. Being welcomed into motherhood isn’t meant to be like entering into a competition. Continue reading

The Years I Allowed Flaws, Fears And Rejections Defeat Me

When I look back I start remembering it all so clearly and the feelings of being so embarrassed. Since I’m a grown woman now it does make it easier to share and honestly a good amount of time passing by always helps.

It all started in the 6th grade when I was going through the “awkward stage.” It was the first day of school. I recently got braces, never used a hair straightener and my favorite songs were probably from a Lizzie McGuire soundtrack, which was not cool anymore. On the first day of school I’d say Continue reading

Chasing After The Root of Life

While scrolling through social media there’s a good chance you’ve seen the image of a pineapple with the quote that says: “Be a pineapple: Stand tall. Wear a crown and be sweet on the inside.” I mean, who doesn’t want to develop into that?  Did you know pineapples roots can extend past its leaves which can reach up to 5 feet long? It takes about six months just for the seed to sprout. During that time the baby plant can even be planted carefully into temporary growing containers.  We see it takes a pineapple time to mature into what it’s supposed to be from the inside out.
