Organic Bath and Body Goods By Grown Alchemist

Beauty, Best Healthy Life, Fave Finds, Mom Life

Where to begin when there is so much I want to say. As we’ve embarked on this journey to remove a lot of items off our bathroom shelves that have one too many syllables that are hard to pronounce, I am loving what I’m learning. I’ve always been aware of the benefits of eating organic foods, but never gave much thought to bath and body products. It should make sense though that what you put in your body is equally important as what you put on it. There are no question marks with Grown Alchemist organic botanical beauty products and I’ll share why.

Vacation Ready Skin With Ponds, St. Ives, Noxzema and Simple

As I’ve gotten a little “older,” I’ve truly realized the importance of taking care of my skin. This is especially important when I break out of my routine like on our trip to Maui. One of my favorite places on earth fits that bill because of all the magical spots–you’ve got the beautiful beaches of the north shore, the dry terrain of the Lahaina area, and the magical hike through the Bamboo Forest on the Road to Hana. To keep my skin happy, hydrated and glowing on all
our adventures I’m sharing some of my favorite vacation ready skin tips and products for your next vacation.

Whitening My Teeth At Home With On The Go Life

Sigh. The quest for the perfect smile. We endured the embarrassment of being a brace face for years. And maybe wore our retainers so the pain wouldn’t be in vain (I didn’t, my teeth have totally shifted). But all that can be ignored if we have a bright white grill. I’ve always been self-conscious about my teeth being dingy. Being a new reporter in front of the camera every day makes me want to take care of my smile even more. I’ve tried whitening paste and strips – but never could make myself blow 500 bucks on professional whitening.

​Enter Smile Brilliant. We’ve partnered with them to show you how easy the at home whitening process can be. A box arrives at your door with a step-by-step guide to making your own teeth impressions for your whitening trays. It’s easy, you bite down on this clay-like base and catalyst mix a few times, let it dry and ship it off in the envelope they provide. They even provide and extra set of clay just in case the first mold needs to be redone for an oopsie. In a little over a week, I got my trays back and the whitening fun began.

how it works

You squeeze the Smile Brilliant whitening gel on the trays, pop em in and forget about it.
I started slowly, leaving them in for 30 minutes at first and working my way up from there. My teeth are super sensitive, so I had to be careful, but they provide a desensitizing gel that helps. When I felt a little zing, I’d whiten every other day and it went away. The best part was, instead of being at the dentist just sitting, I was able to tidy up the house, play with our dog or get get caught up on the news(you know–reporter fun).  With my life being on the go non-stop, it was super convenient to whiten when able at home.
