Product Review: Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening System

Disclosure: I was given Smile Brilliant for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I was intrigued when Smile Brilliant contacted me about doing a review for them.
Their website said that their trays were custom-fitted and lab created and I wanted to 
see how they would accomplish such a feat.
I had custom bleaching trays made by a dentist before I got married
and I remember the dental assistant mixing stuff, and putting it into trays and having
me bite down and the nerves that came from being in a dentist's chair.
So, if I could get custom whitening trays without a trip to the dentist, I was in!

Before using Smile Brilliant
My tray creation kit arrived and I was pleasantly surprised to find two sets of paste
in the Tray Creation Kit that arrived in the mail.
I read the directions, prepped my teeth, watched the YouTube video and 
mixed and made my own impressions. 
My kids were totally intrigued by the blue paste and what I was doing.
I'm glad they sent extra impression material, because my first attempt didn't go very well.
But, after doing it wrong once, I had no other problems.

The turn around time for the arrival of my custom whitening trays was QUICK!
Smile Brilliant also sent me my plaster molds so I could see how the
trays were created from the impressions that I sent them.

I thought it was super cool to see that they are created in a lab
just as if I had gone to the dentist and had them made.
It was easy, convenient and painless.
All things I appreciate when it comes to my teeth!

I've done a couple of treatments and I'm pleased with the results.
I used the desensitizing gel during the treatments, because the sensitivity during
whitening treatments has been my biggest complaint in the past.
The next time I do a whitening treatment I would like to try it without the
desensitizing gel to see if can see a difference.

Here is a picture of my teeth after two treatments.
They are coming a long nicely. I don't drink coffee or smoke, but I do
love me some Diet Coke, so I know that they can use some brightening and whitening.
You can get Smile Brilliant for $119.95 right now - saving $60 from the original
price of $179.95 and save yourself a trip to the dentist and dentist prices!

Thanksgiving Turkey Shirt Ideas

It's a week before Thanksgiving and I am itching to make cute and festive
shirts for my kids to wear to Thanksgiving dinner with the family.
I've made a couple of different turkey shirts over the years
and they have been some of my favorite DIY holiday shirts I've made.
And since I make everything at least one size too big, I can usually get
2 years worth of wear out of them.
But alas, we've added a new baby this year and last year's shirts are too small,
so it's time to round up some ideas for new turkey shirts for Thanksgiving 2014!

Our first turkey shirts were made using the kids' hand prints and googly eyes!
They were so fun, and even my oldest nephew wished I had made him one.

Then we had the giant cute eyed turkey face shirts.
I even made Isabella a matching skirt to go with her turkey shirt.
I loved the giant faces and was so glad that the next year I could just shorten
the sleeves on JT's shirt and add leggings to Isabella's skirt
and we were golden with turkey shirts for another year.

I haven't fully committed to turkey shirts this year,
but I was perusing the work of some of my favorite crafty ladies
and I've got a few ideas to work with.
If you need inspiration for your 2015 Thanksgiving turkey shirts,
then you should check out these great ideas!
