My top favorite Nsale finds

It has been a busy week with moving and starting work on our new house. We are realizing more each day that we got ourselves a fixer upper, without the help of Johanna and Chip Gaines. We are painting all of our walls and having the flooring replaced which will be a huge change, but I will be sharing our updates in the next few weeks of our house. I realized today that the Nsale is ending this Sunday and I know you all are probably tired of hearing about it, but I wanted to share my favorite finds from it before it ends.

You can also now shop all my looks by following me on the LikeToKnowIt app!! Yayyy!! I will be adding a widget soon here to be able to shop as well.

 

Also, a quick reminder make sure to go and check out my most recent blog post on my teeth whitening routine and a giveaway for a free whitening kit!

 

Let’s start with my favorite tee I found from the Nsale! It’s so comfortable and fits so well. I love this color too cause you can wear it in summer and into fall with a cardigan as well. There are still a couple colors left in a couple sizes. It fits true to size and I am wearing an XS.

Another good find from the Nsale was these $31 cardigans! They are the perfect length even for a shorter girl like me and are so comfortable. I grabbed it in grey and tan, however I think there are only a couple colors left including black and grey in select sizes. I tagged some other cardigans from the sale that are still available and similar to it. It fits true to size, although I am wearing an XS in the oatmeal color and a Small in the grey. So you can either go your size or one size up too if you want more of an oversized look.

The one sweater I grabbed was this hot pink BP sweater. I absolutely love this one! It is probably the comfiest sweater I have ever owned. It is still in stock in two colors and sizes including this color in size XXS. It is a little loose fitting and I got an XS so I would say you can size down, unless you want more of the loose fit. It will be perfect in the fall or winter with some booties or over the knee boots.

I also got the Caslon tee for under $19 in burgundy and I love it. It has a fitter look to it, but it is such a great long sleeve tee. It is still available in black in an XS and other sizes in other colors. It fits true to size and I am wearing an XS. If you are worried about it being too tight I would maybe size up one.

These are what made it to my closet from the Nsale and are definitely my favorites! I linked a couple other items I liked, but didn’t get above as well. Happy Shopping!! If you have any ideas for things to do in Charleston, I would love to know! We planned our trip for October and are so excited! I seriously can’t wait for fall and being able to wear all these fall finds.

Hope you all have a great week!

XOXO,

Easy At Home Teeth Whitening + Giveaway!!

Teeth Whitening at home with Smile Brilliant. Sharing my favorite easy at home teeth whitening system at an affordable price. Make sure to stay till the end of this blog post, there is something special at the end. 

How would you like to have bright white teeth for this summer season?! So many vacations and parties with friends and family…not to mention all the pictures that are taken. It’s the best time to get rid of those coffee stained teeth so you can have a bright white smile in all those pictures.

 

Make sure to read to the end of this blog post, there is something special for all of my followers at the end.

I have never had too many problems with my teeth. I am actually pretty proud of my teeth. I did have braces in high school for a short 6 months to help straighten my teeth. I still wear my retainers two to three times a week to keep them straight. Having a good smile has always been important to me, especially since I competed in several vocal competitions and pageants growing up where people would always see my smile.

I used a 5 minute teeth whitening gel from the local pharmacy store when competing and I never enjoyed putting that gel in. It had a bad taste and the mouthpiece was pretty uncomfortable. It was the only teeth whitening I knew of at the time. I stopped using it after I was done competing part way through college.

 

In college, I started drinking coffee everyday.  I loved having it every morning and sometimes twice a day. It didn’t help that there was a Starbucks in our library.  I still LOVE having coffee every morning!! So I did notice my teeth started losing color over time, especially more recently. I was told to try crest whitening strips and other teeth whitening systems, but none of the cheap whitening systems worked very well and my teeth were very sensitive to the gels. I was always intrigued by the professional teeth whitening at the dentist office, but could never afford the $300-$500 teeth whitening service.

When Smile Brilliant approached me about collaborating with them, I was so excited! I was a little skeptical at first since everything was done at home. However, the process was so simple and easy. I also loved the before and after pictures I saw of many people who had tried it. I love that I can do the whole process while sitting in my pjs at home without paying the overpriced dentist rate and dealing with scheduling an appointment. I also love that their system is designed specifically for people with sensitive teeth like me. Plus, their kits are all under $200 which is a steal for a professional whitening kit. Here is a link to their site if you’re interested in checking out more reviews. Smile Brilliant Reviews.

They sent me a package with step-by-step directions on how to get started along with teeth whitening syringes, desensitizing syringes, putty to make my own impressions, impression trays, and even a mailer to send back the trays. I love that you get to make your own custom-made trays to fit your teeth. It was really easy to do the impressions myself too. I love the way the trays fit my teeth well.

The process for whitening your teeth is pretty quick and I found it easy to do while watching tv in the evenings with my husband, writing blog posts, and even while getting ready in the morning. Here is a quick overview of the whitening process. I recommend doing it at night for the best results.

 

Step 1. Brush your teeth with just water.
Step 2. Put a small about of teeth whitening gel in your tray and whiten for 45 mins-1 hour. (I stayed on the lower end with having sensitive teeth).
Step 3. Brush your teeth with toothpaste.
Step 4. Put a small amount of desensitizing gel in your tray and keep in there for 15-20 mins.
Step 5. Make sure to not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes after.

My “After Whitening” Review

It’s a pretty simple process and I am loving the results. The desensitizing gel was the best part, since that helps with keeping your teeth from feeling sensitive during the whitening process. I highly recommend using the desensitizing gel after whitening if you have sensitive teeth. My husband noticed a difference in my teeth after my first night of using the system. I am not recommending this brand just because I have collaborated with them, but because I have absolutely loved the results. I give Smile Brilliant five stars on their teeth whitening kit. I will definitely be using their system in the future for teeth whitening again. I love that I can now smile in my blogging pictures and have pearly whites. Having a white smile has helped boost my confidence, especially when posing for a picture.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

So what is the big deal about this sale?! Well unlike most stores who put all their summer items on sale at the end of the season. Nordstrom discounts all their new fall arrivals. So you can start shopping for the upcoming season which is amazing! I love fall clothes, so I am excited about this sale!!

I am new to the fashion blogging, however this sale is going to be amazing and you don’t want to miss it!! I  will be sharing with you everything you need to know about the dates etc. for the sale. Now with all that being said, my husband and I agreed to not own any credit cards. So I am not a cardholder member with Nordstrom. I am still trying to figure out how to do a debit card, so check back for an update on that. I will be shopping when it opens to everyone else as of now.

So what is the big deal about this sale?! Well unlike most stores who put all their summer items on sale at the end of the season. Nordstrom discounts all their new fall arrivals. So you can start shopping for the upcoming season which is amazing! I love fall clothes, so I am excited about this sale!!

Here are some key dates to remember:

1. July 11, Level 4 cardmembers get to pre-shop the sale in stores only.

2.July 12-19, all cardmembers get to shop Early Access in stores and online. This is when most things sell out, so if you can grab a Nordstrom card then go for it.

3. July 20-August 5, our biggest sale of the year opens to the public. On August 6th everything will go back to normal prices.

This sale is special and different because they don’t put all the summer outfits on sale, but rather the new fall arrivals on major discount. So this is the perfect time to grab those sweaters, boots, leggings, scarves, and other fall necessities. Have in mind what you are already looking for, for example: I know I need different cardigans and sweaters for the fall so I will be looking there first. Take a look at your closet and figure out what you need the most for fall/winter beforehand. I have linked the catalog Here, so you can start looking through items you might want.

On July 20th, I will be hoping on the site and browsing right away. So be sure to come back here then to find what I am looking at. I will be sharing staples like tees, denim, sweaters, booties, and cardigans. Also, check my instagram stories that day for things that I have bought.

I am very excited for this sale since it is my first year! I hope this helps to guide you in the biggest sale of the year. If you have any questions please leave a comment or dm me. Have a great weekend!

XOXO,

Autumn

Orange Dress from Red Dress Boutique

We got some time on Friday to go on a date night together which was definitely needed after a busy week. I wanted to share with you all one of my most recent favorite boutiques and this cute orange dress from there.

It has been a busy couple weeks for us with lots of things to do before we move into our first owned house in July. The husband was also busy with preparing for our big summer series at our church called At the Movies. We built the set of Wizard of OZ in our main atrium and guess who gets to play Dorothy for the next few weeks?! It’ll be a fun couple weeks! We got some time on Friday to go on a date night together which was definitely needed after a busy week. I wanted to share with you all one of my most recent favorite boutiques and this cute orange dress from there.

Red Dress Boutique is located in Athens, GA and has the cutest clothes you can order online. I am pretty sure I have 40 different outfits favorited on their site. They have a variety of clothes from fun casual tees and dresses to nicer two piece sets, dresses, and skirts. Also, they have some of the cutest swimwear as well. I recently grabbed a one piece from there that was on sale for $17! I linked the suit above, for sizing, I wear a size Medium in the suit.

I found the cutest orange dress from their store for under $50 and I love it. It has the cutest ruffles on the sleeves and down the front. Plus it has a great floral pattern, built in slip, and tie for around the waist. It is definitely one of my favorite summer dresses. You could wear it to a night out with friends or even a wedding. I am wearing an XS and it fits true to size.

I paired the dress with this cute white embroidered purse I found at Francesca’s for under $40 and my favorite nude heels from Francesca’s. My earrings are Sugarfix which is a branch off of baublebar and I found them for $13.

I definitely recommend Red Dress Boutique for some cute affordable dresses and tops for summer. I linked a couple of my other favorite dresses from their site. The shipping is standard and is free if you buy anything over $50. They also give you 10% off on your first purchase when you sign up for emails. They do sell out of items pretty quickly so when you see something you like grab it. If not, then you have to sign up for the waitlist and they contact you when it’s back in stock.

I hope you all enjoy shopping from here as much as I do! I hope you all have a great weekend!

XOXO,

Autumn
