Smile Brilliant Plaque High Lighters Review


Recently I was given the opportunity to try Smile Brilliant's  new Plaque Highlighters. Plaque Highlighters are plaque disclosing tablets that will up your teeth brushing game by revealing the spots on your teeth that need some extra brushing. You chew one tablet for approximately 30 seconds, swishing it around in your mouth then spit and rinse with water for 10 seconds. The Plaque Highlighters technology contain a temporary pink dye that will light up to identify areas with plaque and tartar build up. Then all you do is brush it away till your teeth are squeaky clean. 

I was intrigued with these when I heard about them. Do they actually work? I was also concerned that the tablets would have bad taste, did they? The answers are yes and no. After my first try of chewing and swishing the tablet in my mouth until it dissolved I was surprised by how it turned the inside of my mouth pink. It mostly highlighted areas in between my teeth. I wasn't surprised about this since plaque does a great job of hiding in between spaces and grooves. The tablet itself did not have a bad taste. It was a little sweet with just a hint of an aftertaste that did not bother me at all. Now it was time to pull out my toothbrush and brush away all the pink from my mouth. It took a bit of brushing to get it all off and I was a little disappointed when I saw that now my toothbrush bristles were stained pink. However, this was just temporary and my teeth and toothbrush were left sparkly clean after using Plaque High Lighters. They also have a kids version of Plaque High Lighters that I think kiddos would have a lot of fun with. They come in berry blast flavor and safe for children 5 and up. Each package of Plaque High Lighters come  with 30 dissolvable tablets. Enjoy 25% off any set of plaque highlighters with code usfg25 online

Loot Crate Hello Kitty and Friends Review

 Loot Crate is a subscription service that offers a variety of pop culture crates that have been curated to fit your favorite theme.  Be it sci-fi, horror, Pixar, WWE, anime, gaming or whatever you geek out over. If you like Marvel, they have a crate for you. Harry Potter, they got ya covered. Britney Spears fan? Believe it or not they got one for you too. You simply chose your crate and exclusive related items will be shipped to your door. Things like apparel, action figures, memorabilia and other collectibles to add to your collection. 

I received a Hello Kitty and Friends Sanrio crate for review because yes, I am still a fan of Hello Kitty. I was pretty excited to tear into this box and see what it was all about. I was promised some super cute items featuring different Sanrio characters and the crate did not disappoint. Each crate is shipped every other month and is themed. The nice thing is you are told before ordering what the theme is so you can choose to skip it if it doesn't sound like something you would like. The theme crate I received was Garden Party and including the following items:

This large insulated lunch cooler bag features Hello Kitty, Tuxedosam and Cinnamoroll in a gardening scene. I really like the size of this bag as I could fit an entire picnic lunch in it. 

This adorable half apron is my favorite item from the box, because I have a thing for cute aprons. 

Look at this t-shirt! Perfect spring/summer scene and color. Penelope snatched this one away from me. 

This water bottle, although sweet, is cheap plastic. I don't think I will be drinking from it, instead I will probably use it to store some school supplies in it. 

Finally this Chococat plush in his crown of spring flowers. He is purr-fect! 

I was really pleased with the items I received. The Hello Kitty and Friends crate costs $39.99 plus shipping, it's a pretty good value if you are a fan of Sanrio stuff. 

Go check out Loot Crate and see if they offer a crate with some of your fave things.

Dress up your walls! Stay tuned...

 A few weeks ago, tired of looking at our tan colored bedroom walls, my husband and I decided it was time to paint. After much deliberating on the color we decided on black. I know what you are thinking, really black? But, I had a vision. In my mind I was picturing black walls with some kind of cool accent wall to give it a bit of a modern feel. Maybe a geometric pattered wall paper or something with bright colors to give it some pop. Even though we still hadn't decided on what we were going to do, and despite all the naysayers. We went with it and painted our bedroom black. 

I actually think it looks pretty good. I've always liked things on the darker side and tend to stray from the norm. Still trying to figure out what we were going to do as far as an accent wall, fate sent me a little nudge by way of an email. I was contacted by a company called Photowall and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products on Girly Girl. I checked out their website and lo and behold Photowall makes custom wallpaper, wall murals and art prints to fit any size wall. You can even have one of your beloved personal photos made into a wall mural! I was so excited I immediately starting looking through their huge selection of products for some inspiration. Their wallpapers come in a wide range of styles ranging from Art & Design to Nature motifs to Cities & Places and even designs that would look adorable in a children's room.  The literally have 1000's of designs to chose from. It was very hard to narrow it down to just one. Here are some of my faves that I had a hard time deciding on...

I really like this mid-century mod wallpaper. It really gives something extra to a clean and functional modern room. 

I also think this simple geometric grid would add a nice contrast to the black walls. 

I think these sepia poppies are beautiful and would look stunning on a bedroom wall. 

These are just a few of the designs that ended up in my shopping cart. After days of narrowing it down my husband I decided on this pattern. 

I am a sucker for polka dots and stripes and this is one I kept coming back to. I am pretty excited about it! It was so easy to order our wallpaper on You simply measure your walls or area that you would like covered, crop your motif to your desired look, choose your paper quality from standard to premium and place it in your cart. Your wallpaper will ship to your home quick. I received mine in about a week. 

My husband I are going to work on getting our wallpaper up this weekend. I can't wait to take photos and share the finished look with you.
