Friday Favorite: Ape Caves at Mt. St. Helens

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 3.08.38 PM

I have lived in Western Washington long enough yet had never been to Mt. St. Helens.  I think a big part of this was that I was actually a little scared.  Volcanoes really freak me out!  Even just looking at the pictures of the horrible eruption at Mt. St. Helens in the ’80s, I can’t even imagine what that must have been like at the time.

But my boyfriend kept telling me how cool of an experience it is to walk through the Ape Caves at the mountain.  We’d talked about it for a while and I finally agreed to go.  I had gone long enough without going to the mountain and was really just curious what it was like there.

Summer Playlist 2018

It’s officially summertime, my absolute favorite time of the year!  I love everything about this season and I am so ready for a couple months of warmth and sun, especially since Seattle rarely sees the sun until summer comes around, let alone have the temperature come above 55 degrees.

As today is the first day of summer, I am sharing my current summer Spotify playlist with y’all full of all the music I am currently listening to this time of year that totally give those summertime vibes.

Custom Teeth Whitening From Home

Custom Teeth Whitening From Home

As a fashion and lifestyle blogger, having a great smile goes a long way and is definitely the best accessory any girl can have.  

I have always been a little insecure about my smile for a couple of reasons.  My two front teeth are a little crooked, going through braces in junior high school, bars to fix my overbite, and I have just never been satisfied with how white my teeth were.  But whiteness was definitely my biggest insecurity.

For a couple years I’ve experimented with so many different kinds of drugstore whitening strips and Crest whitening strips but never noticed any results and was honestly just getting frustrated because I had no idea how to fix this particular insecurity of mine.  I drink sodas and tea a couple times a month and knew that was what was causing a lack of whitened teeth, but I just couldn’t give those up! Coca-Cola or iced tea on a hot summer day are the perfect refreshments that I just couldn’t let go of!

So when I got a message from Smile Brilliant asking to try out their product, I was beyond excited and could not wait to begin a new teeth whitening method!  After reading through all of the information, I was sure this was the teeth whitening method for me that would actually work, being so much more professional than a standard drugstore teeth whitening kit.  It was basically like a dentist office teeth whitening kit sent to my house to do myself when convenient for me!

After answering some questions about my dental history, I received the package from Smile Brilliant which contained all the gels I would need throughout my whitening process, along with the molds I needed to create of my teeth to send back to the company.  After creating my molds and sending them back, I received my custom-fitted whitening trays about a week later and was ready to start whitening!
