Metamorphosis Microblading & Powder Brows: Vancouver, WA

Microblading and powder brows are the latest obsession in the beauty world, and rightfully so because the results are amazing. I am so excited to partner with the talented Autumn of Metamorphosis Microblading who did my beautiful new brows!

Microblading and powder brows can turn someone with little-to-no eyebrow hair into looking like they have full, beautiful eyebrows. All it takes is a little time under the needle (yes, they are technically a temporary or “cosmetic tattoo”).

There are two rounds of tattooing and about 1-2 months of healing. Microblading and powder brows are two different treatments for different needs. I got powder done because I have a lot of hair growth. Since my hair is blonde I needed color shaded behind them to make them look filled in. I will go over the differences more later in this post.

Allen Gabriel Med Spa: Botox and Hydrafacial

Posted on 1

Before getting botox my jaw felt like there was a crank attached to my jaw muscles and someone was cranking the gear around and around, tighter and tighter. After my first botox treatment I feel like my face is finally relaxed.

I’ll admit, when the Allen Gabriel med spa team first reached out to me about botox I was a little hesitant. I went in for an initial meeting, but it took me 3 months to decide if I really wanted to do botox. The truth is, I have always wanted to do botox, but I didn’t want to talk about it publicly. I wanted it to be my little secret – I wanted everyone to wonder how my skin looks so amazing. That is the exact reason the Allen Gabriel med spa team reached out to me. They wanted to partner with a local influencer to get rid of the taboo of botox.

Gillespie Dentistry: The Best Dentists in Vancouver, Washington

Posted on 15

In this blog post I am sharing my experience with the best dentists in Vancouver, Washington: Gillespie Dentistry. They are a wonderful team of dentists who are passionate about dental health and who value their patients. This post was created in partnership with Gillespie Dentistry, but all thoughts & opinions shared are my own.

Dental health is something that I have been passionate about my entire life. I have my mother to thank for that one, because when I was growing up she was a dental hygienist. I grew up in dentist office environments, and I even worked at a dentist office as a receptionist temp. After every dental visit I still confide in my mother. You definitely get spoiled when you grow up with your own mother cleaning your teeth. She’s the best hygienist, but this baby bird had to jump out of the nest eventually and find a new practice to take care of my teeth.

I am so grateful to have met Dr. Greg Gillespie. It was pure coincidence, but I am still SO HAPPY! Greg is one of the 3 “Dr. Gillespie’s” at Gillespie Dentistry in Vancouver, Washington. The team is made up of two brothers and their cousin, and the practice was started by their fathers. What an amazing family business! I am so excited about my care plan with Gillespie Dentistry. We started with a teeth whitening treatment. After that Greg fixed up my chipped front tooth via bonding. Bonding is a dental process that uses a tooth-colored composite resin to fix a chip. The bottom photo is my current pretty smile! Up next we have some Invisalign for the crowding I have going on on my bottom teeth. I already have my first set of trays and I can see my teeth getting straighter. I can’t wait to share the finished results!
