Bralette Crop Top & Striped Tie-Waist Pants

Posted on 11

My new summer uniform consists of a bra top and striped tie-waist pants. It is such a cute look! Wearing  light layers is a great way to keep cool during the summer, which is why I have been on the hunt for teeny tops like this one. It pairs so perfectly with these striped tie-waist pants.

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!

Summer Camouflage: Floral Maxi Dress

Posted on 7

I consider a floral maxi dress as summer camouflage. Living in the PNW there is no shortage of flowers, so styling floral-print anything alongside these gorgeous backdrops looks like camouflage to me!

Xbox One S All-Digital Edition: She Came to Play

Posted on 11

Gaming has been a favorite activity of mine for as long as I can remember. I was born in 1992, and with the rise of technology also came the rise of gaming. There are so many games that are near and dear to my heart from my childhood, like Spyro. I love the remastered versions of old school classics that I play on my Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, the games bring me back so much nostalgia!
Another remastered game I love is Modern Warfare 2 – I used to play that Call of Duty game every day after high school. From PC to console, I’ve played them all. It wasn’t until I met my husband, Scott, that I developed a love for Xbox. Up until getting married I had never played on Xbox. After 5 years of marriage I have successfully acquired my husband’s gamer tag (that he had since he was 12). If that isn’t the definition of true love… While we both love to use Xbox for gaming, we also love that it has apps for entertainment such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Twitch and more.

I am excited to announce the release of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Since Xbox’s debut in 2001, the growing desire for digital content has substantially changed. That’s why the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was created – for those who prefer to play their games digitally and in an affordable way. Players can build a library of digital games in the cloud that travels with them. This new console is available for only $249.99! The price point for the digital console is the most affordable way to begin accessing Xbox One games. You can pick up the disc-free Xbox One S All-Digital Edition in-store or online at your local Walmart, Best Buy, and Microsoft Store, and on Amazon.com.
