We’re merely a few weeks out from our wedding at this point (eep!!), and we’ve had so many exciting events on the agenda as of late. From my bachelorette, to my wedding shower, to our actual wedding day (duh), to our honeymoon, and beyond, it truly is the most wonderful period of our lives so far. And while my focus has mostly been on feeling my very best so I can really enjoy every last second of it, I’m well aware that the photo opportunities are currently abundant and I’ve definitely been working on looking my best as well. I’ve teamed up with Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Light for the purpose of this post to share exactly what I’ve been doing to help myself in getting wedding ready…
I’ve spoken at length about my battles with anxiety around here, and know for sure that the relationship between my gut health and my mental health is real. Anxiety is the very last thing I want to deal with right now, so I’ve really been paying attention to what I’ve been putting in my body. Lots of raw fruit and veggies, going easy on the sugar and processed food, and really fueling myself with real, wholesome food has been the name of my game. The weight has seemingly fallen off as a result (which hasn’t been my focus, but has been a wonderful bonus) and I’ve truly never felt better.
The reality is I’m likely going to be looking back on these photos for as long as I live, so it’s only natural to want them to shine their brightest. I was asked to test out Crest’s 3D White Whitestrips to help myself in getting wedding ready, and you guys – they’re incredible. They work quickly and efficiently – which, any bride out there can attest to – is essential right now. And they’re by far the fastest whitening products I’ve used to date. Their new blue light technology means that I can get my whitest, brightest, smile in ten days flat, without having to visit the dentist (um, hello!). It’s like professional level goodness, in the comfort of your own home.
Are people still saying on fleek these days? Is my age showing? I apologize. But yes, the brows, you guys, they’ve always been a bit of a point of contention for me. I fully believe that eyebrows can make or break your entire look, and it’s one of those things that has weirdly been stressing me out. My brows definitely have a bit of a mind of their own, and I’ve seriously been contemplating micro-blading leading up to our big day. If you haven’t heard of it, which I’m sure you have by now, it’s essentially a semi-permanent tattoo like procedure to help enhance and shape your brows. I’ve yet to pull the trigger on this one, but would love to hear if any of you have done it – and whether or not it was worth it.
Because, much like your diet, glowing skin starts from the outside in. I’ve reduced my caffeine consumption by *impressive* amounts (if I do say so myself), and have been chugging water like it’s my job. My skin, you guys, has never looked better .
When it comes down to it, I know that my wedding day will only come once and I want to be as present as possible for the entirety of it, including all of the wonderful festivities leading up to the big day. I’m prioritizing my sleep, so I look and feel my best. I’ve scaled back at work, so stress is at an all-time low. And I’m making sure to set aside ample time for every activity, and wedding related-task, so I can really, truly, and thoroughly enjoy every moment and not rush through it. Because in the end, a calm and centred bride is more beautiful than anything else.
