If you haven't read the book, Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley than you need to do yourself a favor and Amazon Prime that goodness to your door right MEOWWWWW! There is an excerpt from that book I want to share with you.
"Why do women always put ourselves last? You think you're doing the selfless thing by putting everyone else first, you're actually sabotaging all your efforts by refusing to take time to fill your tank. You can't draw water from an empty well."
Gosh that book is so life giving and invigorating! It was such an eye opener for me and really helped in teaching myself to have the mentality that it's okay to step back and take some time for myself. Even if that means saying no to something or asking someone to watch my kids in order to make it happen. In fact it's so important. That's why I started going to the gym at 5am every morning before my family is even awake so that I get time to plug my headphones in and know that absolutely no one needs me. I also give myself a spa night once a week. Manicure, sometimes a pedicure, Smile Brilliant teeth whitening treatment, face mask, wine, bubble bath and a book. I go the whole nine yards. Typically I do it after the kids have gone to bed, but it doesn't matter if they are having a hard time going down - they are Jon's duty that night. No excuses! It's so rejuvenating for my soul!
I've been using Smile Brilliant for over a year now and my love for it is still going strong. You can see my original post with a video here. I continue to use my teeth whitening trays once a week as maintenance -aka- to hide all the coffee and red wine I drink! If I know I am going to a wedding or party I will use my whitening trays 2-5 days in a row leading up to the day of the event for an even brighter smile. These are my before and after results from the first time I ever used them. You can check out Jon's results here.
I wanted to clear the air on the most common question I get about using Smile Brilliant. Even if your teeth are crooked these trays will still work for you because they are custom fitted to your mouth. The custom fitted teeth whitening trays are molded to fit your teeth perfectly. Every nook and cranny in your smile is cast into the clay mold that you send back to Smile Brilliant. So whether your teeth are straight or not, your tray is custom fitted to your mouth meaning the whitening gel will touch every part of your teeth.
