Happy New Year!! I have to say that I am a little.. ok, REALLY depressed that the Holidays are over. I love being able to listen to Christmas music on the radio while driving around or to come home after a long day and watch a light hearted Christmas movie. I am even going to miss the Christmas lights which are quickly fading away each night. 🙁 It is such a happy time of year and TBH, there is nothing on the tv or radio. Maybe it’s time to invest in Netflix because, no we do not have it!
For my New Year’s resolution, I have decided to make time for myself at least 3 nights before I go to bed. I tend to stay up late to work on posts, do laundry or lay on the couch on my laptop until I am so tired that all I have energy to do is brush my teeth and wash my makeup off. I have some amazing products that I rarely use because I just run out of time at night.
Monday, I started my new nightly routine by using my Smile Brilliant teeth whitening system. I put my custom whitening trays in right after I laid Andi down. I was able to get a few things done while they were in before I went to bed. I leave the trays in for about an hour and then use the desensitizing gel since I have pretty sensitive teeth. I try to use the system 3 times a week. I am happy with the results and they do not make my teeth hurt like other systems I have used in the past.

A few weeks ago, Aveda sent me this amazing PR package with their new Invati Advanced system. It is supposed to reduce hair loss by 53% and promote thicker fuller hair. After I had Andi, I lost more hair than I’d like to admit. It used to be extremely thick and full. It has really thinned out and I have a lot of breakage. I started this system on Wednesday night and although I obviously haven’t seen results this fast, I am obsessed with the product! The exfoliating shampoo made my scalp feel so clean! I also tried the conditioner and love the scent and cannot wait to use both again. After I got out of the shower I gave the Scalp Revitalizer a try and that also felt like magic on my scalp. It gave almost a tingly, minty sensation. I will try to do some before and after photos and give a full review once I have used the system for a while.
What are your goals this year?
