There's something I would LikeYouToKnow.It

So I have some really exciting news!! I got accepted by LiketoKnow.It (LTK), which means you all can now shop my exact items from a blog post or Instagram through email or the app….exciting right?!? I am ecstatic about about it and so excited for a new, easier way to share my fashion with all of you and make it easier for you to shop!  Most of you may already know how to use it, but for those of you who don’t I’ll give you a quick breakdown below!

How it works:

First, download the LiketoKnow.It app on your phone or sign up by clicking on this link. From there, you only need to enter your name and email address to sign up. Once you are all signed up, all you have to do is like my photos on Instagram or Facebook and an email will be sent directly to you (within minutes) with all of the clothing links. Simple as that! Also, when I post on my blog, I will link everything there and on the “Shop My Instagram” tab so you can click there too. Simply click on the item you like and it will direct you straight to the retailer's website. 

In my opinion, the app is more fun because you can scroll through all your favorite bloggers and follow as many pictures as you want! You can also screenshot any picture with on Instagram and you will receive all of the details that way too. Your Instagram likes or screenshots from any blogger will all be there and you can keep track of them! With the app, you don’t have to take screenshots or like a photo on Instagram, you can just go to that specific bloggers page and click on any photo to see the details of where everything is from.

I personally follow A TON of bloggers and I love how easy LTK makes it for me to find where they got their outfits and accessories. Instead of searching all over the internet trying to find a certain pair of shoes or a specific shirt, I can just buy them with a click of a button. 

Now on to the outfit! It’s been super nice here in Charlotte lately, in the 60's & 70's, so I’m hoping this will be the last of the sweaters and boot posts and then on to the spring style! This outfit is a great way to start transitioning into spring with a sweater dress and over the knee boots. This dress is very lightweight so you won’t get too hot even on a little bit warmer day. It’s one of those dresses that is super easy to throw on when you want to look cute, but don’t really want to try. The cut out sleeves make it different from regular sweater dresses, which I love!

So now let's try this out! Click the pictures below to shop my outfit! My shoes are no longer for sale but I've linked similar ones for you!

Whitening Sensitive Teeth at Home with Smile Brilliant

Everybody wants whiter teeth… am I right?!? Well no more of trying the crazy remedies because today I am so excited to share with you the Smile Brilliant Professional Teeth Whitening Kit that I’ve been using. If you’re anything like me you don’t want to spends tons of money on something that’s not going to work. Well that’s the awesome thing about Smile Brilliant is they use professional grade products that are half the cost of going to a dentist and you can do it from the convenience of your home. They send you all the goodies through the mail and I was so surprised at how easy the process was.

What comes in the kit? Whitening gel, desensitizing gel, and putty to make your teeth molds along with step by step instructions. 

What you do first? Use the blue and white putty to create your molds by following the instructions. Believe it or not this only took me about 15 minutes. Then let your molds sit overnight and send them back in the prepaid envelope that is provided for you. About 7-10 days later, they will mail you your custom trays straight to your house and you are ready to get your whitening on! THAT’S IT! Easy enough, right? 

How to use the two gels?

My thoughts?  My favorite part about this kit is how fast you start seeing results. Most other whitening techniques that I’ve tried have always made my teeth super sensitive to hot and cold but the desensitizing gel takes that away. I used the whitening gel and desensitizing gel every day for a little over a week then switched to every other day for about 3 weeks! Needless to say, I am very happy with the results and definitely recommend this product! I’ve tried everything from crest white strips to charcoal and nothing has worked as much as this has AND I can still enjoy my coffee in the mornings without having to worry!

This process worked so much that I've partner with Smile Brilliant to give one lucky reader $149 dollars towards your very own home whitening system so basically a free one and who doesn't like free!

Giveaway details:

* giveaway is open for 2 weeks (ends on March 8th at midnight). You must enter through the link above to be counted. Open to USA, UK, Canada, and Australia.

Or you can use code sweetandsavvy15 for $15 off your purchase!

Thanks to Smile Brilliant for much whiter teeth and sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own!

 Now on to the awkward before and after pics:

2018 Changes

Happy 2018! 
So I know I'm about a week late on this post but honestly I didn't want to write a cliche new years resolution post. The more I started thinking about it I wanted to share 3 things I look forward to changing in my life in 2018. I don't want to call these resolutions, not to be a debbie downer but nobody ever sticks to those. I feel like sticking to 3 goals is a lot more doable than choosing 10 and not being able to accomplish them. This year I am very determined to hold myself accountable for these changes because it will only help me become a better person for myself and others - so here goes! 

1. Forming a better/deeper relationship with God individually and in my and Patrick's relationship. 

I'm a christian and have always had a relationship with Got but I know I can give a lot more. I feel like in the hustle and bustle of life we sometimes forget what living is all about and we forget to give thanks to the only one that makes it all possible which is Him. My goal is to find a church here in Charlotte and start going every Sunday that we are in town. I would also love to start reading a devotional so please put your recommendations in the comments!

2.  Chase the girl who I want to be in the future.

I have so many things I want to do and accomplish in my life so I want to work towards those goals like its 5 years from now. I'm guilty for getting into a lazy routine where all I do is go to work, come home and sleep then repeat Monday through Friday.There is so much more to life so I plan on making big changes in this area. I plan on getting back into my gym routine at 5:30AM, working on the blog or anything else that makes me happy after work and exploring/travel on the weekends!

3. Live in moment

I feel like a lot of us don't truly live in the moment because we are to busy on our phones or worrying what others are doing. Life goes by way to fast not to cherish these moments and enjoy who you are with. My goal is to unplug and truly embrace the important things without being attached to electronics. 

2017 was a great year but I feel 2018 is going to be AMAZING! I do have few other small goals for myself but overall these are the changes I am determined to make! Although, this was a more personal post, I hope y'all enjoyed it and feel free to share your "changes" below! Cheers to 2018 and becoming the best version of yourself 💛

Now on to the outfit - how cozy is this sweater! Charlotte has been in the teens this past week so its been perfect to throw to keep me warm and it is super affordable being from H&M! I purchased these Hinge booties about a month or so ago from seeing a lot of other bloggers speak highly about them and they really are worth the $100. I can wear them all day with no problems and they even look great with work pants! I added the hat because ya know it covers up the dirty second day hair LOL but I actually ended up loving it with this sweater!

Thanks for reading!

Coming Clean

Okay, so we use our makeup brushes and sponges everyday right? Well how often do you actually wash them? Reusing a dirty makeup applicator is the equivalent of putting sweaty workout clothes back on, and you wouldn't do that, right? I was definitely guilty of this too - sometimes not washing them for months (gross right?) until I found LimeLight's Come Clean brush and sponge shampoo. It is so easy to use and it's vegan and chemical free, which is just an added bonus! To be honest I didn't wash my brushes because it was time consuming and I'm lazy. But this Come Clean wash is SUPER fast and simple. It will literally take you 5 minutes max! Read the steps and see pictures below to see how I use it: 
  1. Wet your brush or sponge
  2. Swirl brush or sponge around in the jar getting some of the shampoo on it
  3. Run under water again and squeeze all the product out
  4. Repeat those steps until all makeup products are removed
Properly cleaning your brushes and sponges is essential to help prevent breakouts, growth of bacteria, spreading germs and it increases how long your tools will last. And I think it even helps your makeup go on better! It is suggested to clean your tools two to three times per week, and ensure that they are dry in an open, breathable space. If you seal your tools in a airtight bag after cleaning them it could produce mold, mildew or bacteria and we do not want any of that on our faces. 

I have seen so many tutorials showing you how to clean your bushes with baby soap or dish soap, but that's not really getting all that dirt and bacteria out and it seems to be a lot more time consuming. Come Clean is made with essential oils and coconut milk to break down the toughest makeup, which is why it works so fast and easy. Since it is also chemical free, it is the perfect solution for sensitive skin too. Seriously, once you try this stuff you will never stop buying it! And the best part, it's only $28 and will last you for months and months! If you are interested in trying it out click here or email me at!

Transitioning Your Outfits into Fall

Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a great week so far. Since the weather has slowly started cooling off here in Charlotte I wanted to share this look on how you can start transitioning your outfits to adjust to that fall weather. But really... its that time of the year where you need a jacket in the mornings but your having a heat stroke at 2pm haha! Thats fall down south for ya! Anyways, fall really is one of my favorite seasons because Gamecock football is back! I also love snuggling up in cozy lightweight sweaters and booties! 

Don't mind me in my white jeans, I'm a firm believer in wearing white after Labor Day! This poncho from Ivy & Leo is the perfect transition piece because its lightweight and comfy. PS the fringe is my favorite part! I paired this poncho with white jeans and my go-to target booties. My exact top is sold out but I've linked a similar one here

Y'all Hurricane Irma is really starting to scare me 😱 Nobody knows its path yet but I'm hoping it stays away. NC & SC are in a state of emergency so we are hoping for the best! Hope everyone stays safe out there! 

Thanks for stopping by!
