This time of the year is probably the busiest—holiday travels, christmas shopping, family get togethers and endless holiday parties. I don’t know about you but for me, its also the time when this mama gets to drink just coz we end up going to two (sometimes even three) parties a day. You just can’t say no to ‘Holiday Cheers’ (pun intended) and red wine is my alcohol of choice so I guess you can say welcoming the new year with my red wine stained teeth is inevitable (and yes, I’m still an avid coffee drinker so you can add those stains on there). Yikes!
I’m BIG on New Years resolutions but no way am I making ‘Teeth Whitening’ as part of that list, why wait for the new year when these stains can be addressed right now. A few months ago, I was blessed enough to come across SMILE BRILLIANT and their at-home-teeth whitening customized trays, before that I would have never considered whitening my teeth (at home) for a couple of reasons I’m stating below:
#1. As a stay at home mom, I don’t have the TIME to do it. I cannot afford countless trips to the dentist especially with two children tagging along. It is just tedious.
#2. Teeth whitening (when professionally done or when done right) is EXPENSIVE. I’m not about to spend hundreds of dollars for something I know I will be staining again. #coffeemom
#3. I was SKEPTICAL. Let’s face it, any procedure that’s normally done at a professional setting and is now presented to you as something that can be done at home would leave you doubtful.
I had a LOT of questions concerning the product especially regarding teeth sensitivity and it being breast feeding friendly since I’m still currently nursing Xavi so it was a relief to come across their detailed FAQs, and that is how I got convinced to try it out.You can read about my at-home-teeth whitening journey with Smile Brilliant in here. Currently I am working on my refills of whitening gels making sure that me and my pearly whites are ready to take on 2019.
This year has been quite a year with the coming of my second born and me learning to embrace the struggles and the perks of being a Stay-at-Home mom but the most important thing I’ve learned is to ‘ALWAYS LEAVE SOME FOR YOURSELF’, I know as mothers it is our instinct to put our children and family first but we need to take care of ourselves so we don’t burn out and we can continue to take care of them. Spoil yourself a bit, get a haircut, have your nails done, get a wax, get your teeth whitened— I don’t know but the point is show yourself some love.
