This blog post is sponsored by Smile Brilliant. However, I never promote things I don't love. All opinions are my own.
Have you ever woke up, brushed your teeth, and wondered on your way to work if you actually brushed? Before using Smile Brilliant's water flosser, I found myself brushing after meals or a few cups of coffee. I couldn't get my teeth to feel clean.
When I tried their electric flosser, I found a new path to good health. Now, my teeth feel extremely clean and I don't have to brush every time I'm in the bathroom. Have I mentioned I'm not a great flosser either? I mean who really is? With Smile Brilliant's flosser, you can give your arm a rest and toss that plastic floss in the trash.
I like Smile Brilliant products. They have multiple quality items for any dental need you may have. Along with the flosser, I've tried their whitening kit and their cariPRO electric toothbrush. I loved both and the kit gave me insanely white teeth. I'll show you below! The whitening kit is custom-fitted to your mouth, giving you the best coverage possible needed for amazing results.
Smile Brilliant uses a lab-direct process which makes it simple to get professional whitening at home for an affordable price. I first started working with them in 2018 and since then, they've taken this model and expanded their line of oral care products to cater to a wider variety of dental needs.
I've been loving my electric flosser, it only takes a second to snag out of the drawer and get to work. When I was growing up, my mom had a water flosser. It was fun to use, but almost a hassle to grab out of the cupboard because of its long water cord. Did I mention cariPRO flosser is cordless?! I'm not sure it gets more convenient than that. Also, I like how this flosser is shown to be 50% more effective than string floss!
Lately, I've been trying to romanticize my night routine. Shoutout to Taylor Sumner for the idea. If you love dark and moody photography, you will love this chick! Back to my night routine. As of now, I've made it a point to lower the lights, apply lavender behind my neck, light a candle, slather on a heavy lotion, brush with my cariPRO toothbrush, and do a nice floss with their water flosser.
One of my favorite features is that if I forget to use the water pick in the morning, I can throw it on my shower shelf and do it in the shower later. It's actually waterproof, so no worrying about ruining the hardware!
While water flossing, you can choose from three different modes: normal, soft, and pulse. I personally like to use the soft setting because my teeth are a little sensitive. If you don't floss often, don't be alarmed when your gums ache a little after using for the first time. This can be compared to going to the dentist and getting a deep clean. My gums were sensitive the first day, but now my teeth are used to the power of the flosser! Also, it comes with four different flossing tips, so you may prefer using one over the other :)
If you've been wanting to add a little something to your night routine, consider one of Smile Brilliant's products! I know you guys love a good deal too, so whenever you order, use blissjunkie20 to get 20% off! Don't worry either, they have an easy 60 day return policy if it's not for you :)
Smile Brilliant is constantly trying to provide the best dental products for their customers. Some of their other items include plaque highlighters, a custom night guard system, and oral probiotics. I'm so excited to try the oral probiotics next! They strengthen your immune system and work to ged rid of that bad breath :) Along with that, I'm stoked to see my toddler, Trax, use the plaque highlighters when he's older! They identify areas that have been missed brushing and use a temporary dye to highlight the spots that need attention.

Who here has their Christmas decor up?! I've got about half of it and am planning to save the tree for the day after Thanksgiving. Lol, well we'll see if I can wait that long. Anyway, whose started gift shopping? Lately, I've been beginning my mornings with hunting deals and imagining the most meaningful gifts for my family members.
That being said, I'd love to highlight some great gifts that you can order online. Whether you're on the road most of December or visiting relatives this season, ordering online saves time and is less stressful! So let me give you some ideas...
Burnt Match - The Candle Company
In college, I was in an organization called Christian Student Fellowship. This is where I met Cady, the girl behind this company! Burnt Match is very special because the candle is specifically made for yourself, a friend, a season, or holiday. First, you will pick the theme of your candle, which could be things like: winter, woodsy, and baked goods. She has a whole list, so you don't do any of the thinking!
Then you will describe some of your favorite scents. To kickstart your ideas, Cady recommends to consider what items you put down for theme. What things relate to your theme? What I think of: amber, nature, and vanilla. You could even design your candle around your favorite trip! What smells did you love?
Next, give a name to your candle! Lastly, you will decide if you want a string or wood wick. Burnt Match candles are $15 if they are hand delivered and $20 if you need them shipped. Build your candle here.
TIP: If you want to have candles done by Christmas, make sure to have your order in by the end of November!
Are you looking for new kid books before the new year? My cousin Allie Gomez is a consultant for Usborne. They have such great quality books and a lot of them teach important concepts that can be hard to express on your own to little minds. For example, there's a category for "Mindfulness" and many books on dealing with emotions.
Along with that, they have stocking stuffer ideas. Usborne offers unlimited options like coloring books, puzzles, sticker books, and flash cards. Last year, I bought one of their Christmas books and I love it! It's so fun to end our toddler's night routine with a Christmas book in December. If you wanna snag it, it's called Santa Post by Emma Yarlett. They even have books for $4-$7, so decently affordable. Click here to browse the books!
TIP: For your books to arrive by Christmas, I would have your order in by the first week of December. Their company is based in Oklahoma, so locations closer to there may have extra time to put orders in!
My favorite devotional books
Over the years, I have been gifted some of the best devo books out there. I absolutely love getting a devo book for Christmas because A.) I don't have to buy it B.) I always find it on my shelf exactly when I need it! Let's break down my all-time favorites...
The Savvy Sagittarius
One night I went to Applebees with a girlfriend and met a bartender named Elyse. Somehow we got on the topic of blogging and I found out she was a blogger too! Since then, I have loved following along her website and Instagram. She shares amazing content on budgeting, without giving up things in life you love.
Right now she is selling two workbooks: The Savvy Budget Workbook and The Savvy Business Workbook. Her budget workbook is for climbing your way out of debt, learning tactics for spending less each month, and totally up your alley if you don't know where your paycheck is going every cycle.
The business workbook is for someone who runs a business, doesn't have a money structure, has aspirations to finally hit profit goals, and tax season stresses them out. Elyse has the best advice and I can't wait to plow through one of these workbooks someday! One of these would make a great gift to a spouse who has started a side hustle or a family member who loves budgeting, but is working on her student debt!
