Wedding season! | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Wedding season!




Has anyone else noticed that it is wedding season?! We have at least 5 wedding announcements on our fridge at all times lately! I love wedding season and going to weddings/ receptions They always bring me back to my own wedding day and I get all mushy and lovely all over again haha Plus since Jason and I are both from Gilbert, we usually see a bunch of old friends at all these receptions :) As big of a town as Gilbert is, I still feel like everyone kind of knows everyone around here.

Since wedding season is upon us, I have my own little list of things to do to make sure I look cute for all of these events! There's always a photographer snapping pictures of everything and if I'm going to be in someones wedding pictures that they look at forever, I definitely want to make sure I look cute, ya know!?

Some things I decided to do to get ready for these events were getting a spray tan (MUCH needed), touching up my roots because you guys, they were BAD, and using Crest 3D Flexfit Whitestrips to whiten my teeth! I've used crest products before and I have used their 3D white toothpaste since forever (as I mentioned in a vlog a while ago) I love their white strips and I was really excited to try these ones that I haven't used before! I'm one of those people who always reads the box on products, I like to know exactly what will happen when I use these and such and I was impressed that these were compared to dental whitening treatments and they're cheaper, too! They compared it to a $500 laser whitening treatment and ain't nobody wants to spend $500 to whiten teeth, am I right? These whitestrips use the same enamel-safe, teeth-whitening ingredients dentists use, so like, yes. Just yes.



I like that these only take 2 weeks of using them everyday to whiten your teeth which is perfect because I got them pretty much  2 weeks before one of our good friends weddings! I was so mad I didn't make time to whiten my teeth before my wedding, it's basically a getting married necessity,  so I count this as making up for it :)

My teeth are actually my biggest insecurity as dumb as that sounds! They're soooo small and I had braces but they didn't really fix my gaps all the way so I've always wanted to get veneers or bonding! Whitening my teeth helps me feel wayyyy better about them and luckily my brother is a dentist so I see veneers in my future! That's why I usually have a close mouth smile in my pictures, because my teeth!! Jason always has to remind me to smile with my teeth because I really do try not to! Little secret for ya :) Having them white though makes a world of difference for me! I still hate my little gaps and small teeth but at least they're white and pretty thanks to these white strips!

This is not only a super super awkward picture, but it's the before using the Crest Flex strips picture.



Annnnnd I opted for a much less invasive After to show you my pearly whites!



Andddd those babies making an appearance at one one of the many weddings this season! Would I recommend Crest flexfit whitestrips? Yup! I've used other Crest whitestrips before and they never dissapoint! One thing I actually liked best about these is that the strips are literally stickers for your teeth! Every other white strips I've used always move around on your teeth and slip and slide. These stay put and you even have to peel them off because they stick so well! That was a perk for sure. My teeth were a little sensitive so sometimes I had to skip a day, but overall they worked great for me!

  7. Hi are you famous??? CREST SPONSOR!!!? Whatttt!! You go girl! And what are you talking about, your teeth are perfect? I honestly like the look of natural teeth more than veneers. (Not like natural natural, but like after braces natural lol.) I was just watching a movie the other day and it was supposed to be from like the 50s and this actress had SUCH perfect teeth it made me hate the movie. I know she's a movie star and she's supposed to, but there's no way she had those teeth 60 years ago you know? No way. But I also know what you mean. I hate my teeth too. They shifted back after braces and they're not the same length if you know what I mean, and I had this little tooth and I had like capped because it was small and the color is off and I ALWAYS notice it in pictures, even though I'm sure no one else does. And even if I use white stripes that one tooth will never change color so I feel like it's pointless. I did use white stripes before my step sisters wedding for a while, and they HURT SO BAD. I guess some people have this problem and some people don't, but my teeth did not like them at all. This isn't a joke. I called into work one morning because they hurt so bad. I remember putting the dishes away once and putting every single utensil in the drawer one at a time because if they clanked the noise hurt my teeth lol.

    But yeah.. this is cool. I didn't even get to my thoughts on wedding season, but this comment is already too long. So bye for now! xo

    2. hahah IN MY DREAMS!!! K and you are so nice to even say that!! I am the opposite, I am so jealous of people with veneers cause I'm like "I want your perfect teeth!!" and that is funny, people in the 50's did NOT have good teeth (ok some did, but not like perfect) so that would probably bug me too, or I would just be jealous haha I would NEVER notice anything bad about yours!! As far as I knew, they were perfect and looked great to me! So maybe it's just us being too critical of ourselves, dangit! but that is really funny (now it's funny) how they were so sensitive on your teeth!! These ones were on mine too but as long as I skipped a day, I was good to go!! I wonder what makes them so sensitive?! also, teach me to be a good blogger again!!!
