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!
Ever since I moved to the Pacific Northwest I have been practicing many different forms of wellness and self-care. I have been doing things like drinking more water, going on hikes and nature walks, practicing positive affirmations, and I even tried cupping. When I have a stomach ache I reach for my mint oil instead of a bottle of pills. I have been enjoying the holistic approach to health, and I love discovering ways to both enhance life and recover from illness with the help of natural remedies.
I received a chair acupuncture treatment complimentary of Golden Hour in Portland. I heard wonderful things about the location and the practice of acupuncture, and I wanted to share my wellness experience with you all!
La Vie En Rose is not just a famous song, it is a way of life. Pink has always been my favorite color. I wanted to style an all pink monochrome outfit because I think that these warm pastel colors look so good together.
In this blog post I am partnering with a local boutique called Artkana. I love their selection of shoes that will suit any style. They carry a wide variety of brands that are top-tier quality, so you know you’re getting the best of the best. At Arktana, quality and style are both important as each brand is carefully selected. They constantly keep new shoes on rotation so that you have multiple options of styles throughout the seasons. Skip the department stores and shop local at this fabulous little boutique! I’m going to be sharing a pair of Antelope boots I received from Arktana, as well as sharing a few of my favorite styles they carry!

Portland is known for its plethora of coffee shops. The Presso Coffee Bar certainly didn’t disappoint! I feel like this coffee shop is perfect for me. It has adorable marble tables, epic wallpaper of moody peonies, and an art wall out back that is the perfect backdrop for a quick photo shoot.
