Bride To Be Beauty Routine

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! As you all know, my wedding is in less than six months, so the official countdown is on! Since I want to look and feel my best on this special day, I have a full on beauty/health routine in the works that will help me feel more confident once the day approaches. Since there are so many photos being taken that day I am very conscious of what I am putting into my body, and how that affects my skin. Here are some things I am doing to prep for my big day. 

Whitening my pearly whites: Having a sparkling smile is something that has always been very important to me. Growing up I had a lot of problems with my teeth, from braces to retainers, and everything in between, I have seen it all! So many things affect the brightness of our teeth, and one of those things is the food and drinks we consume. Even though I love coffee, I know it sometimes has a tendency of darkening teeth.   Having a bright, shining smile is probably the most important thing on my wedding beauty routine list. That's where Crest 3D Flexfit Whitestrips come inIn only 2 weeks, Crest 3D White Supreme Flexfit Whitestrips can whiten teeth as well as a $500 laser treatment. As you can see in the photo below, it gave my teeth that extra brightness that they needed. I use my strips at home while I am relaxing, or doing laundry, and it takes no time at all. I love that I can be in the comfort of my own home while using these strips. (Fyi: I used mine for two weeks, for approximately an hour each time)

Below you can see a before photo (on the bottom) and the top is the after. My teeth are always white, but I really wanted that extra push, and as you can see below, it gave me that shine that I needed! 
Healthy Diet / Workout Routine : This is very important to me because not only am I health conscious regularly, but I also want my skin to look bright and clear. I am staying away from anything processed, high in sodium, and anything with a lot of sugar. My focus is on green vegetables, fruits, and a whole lot of water! This also goes hand in hand with working out regularly. Since the holidays were insane, I am back to a normal schedule at the gym, and I could not be happier. My goal isn't to lose tons of weight or become a twig; I just want to be healthy, and in shape. 

Makeup & Hair Trials: Anyone who knows me personally, knows that my makeup is pretty standard day-to-day. I hardly ever step out of my comfort zone, I rarely wear lipstick, and I keep it all pretty minimal besides my signature cat eye. I already got a makeup and hair trial at Depasquale The Spa, and I loved it, but I still want to continue to test out some looks and see what I want to do. I am very indecisive when it comes to makeup, and really I just want to look like a better version of myself-nothing crazy, nothing caked on, just me, with a little glam. As far as hair goes, I also have no idea what to do with my hair. I've started a secret pinterest board that has some ideas in it, but strangely enough, I have no idea what to do! I'm hoping that the trials will help me figure out what I want when the day comes, but until then I am just testing different things out and seeing what I like! 

 Hope you guys have a great weekend, and if you're a bride to be, I would love to hear your routine!
