Today’s Work it Wednesday is all about self-love. I know that having self-confidence can be a struggle, trust me, been there and don’t want to go back. So here are 15 affirmations that you can read to yourself as often as you would like, just to give your confidence a little boost and feel better about yourself.

How to get a whiter smile + Giveaway!

If there was only one thing that you could control about yourself, what would it be? Would it be to control your weight? How fast your hair would grow in a month? What about how white your smile is? Weight has always been a struggle for me, so I can’t help you there. Want longer hair? Take lots and lots of vitamins. As for a whiter smile, I found a solution!

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted a white smile. A smile so amazing, everyone would compliment me. I use to watch the teeth whitening commercials and think, “how can my smile look like hers?”. If I can’t control my weight or my hair, you can bet you ass that I am going to control my smile! Well, what are the steps that I need to take to a bright smile? Of corse I need to brush my teeth constantly, flossing is a must, and the elimination large amounts of tea and coffee (I need my caffeine). I also need some sort of teeth whitening routine that doesn’t cost a fortune. Yes, I can go get those white strips, but they constantly slip and slide around. I want to make sure that the whitening gel covers all of my teeth, not just the front ones.

 Smile Brilliant has that covered!
