I was so excited when Smiles of Melbourne approached me and offered to whiten my teeth.  Everyone wants a beautiful smile, including me!! Plus. I have tried pretty much every off-the-shelf option and have never been happy with the results.  Gels, mouth guards, toothpaste, whitening strips... seriously, everything!!

I also have issues with sensitive teeth, so it was so reassuring to be in the hands of a qualified and experienced dentist who knows how to really care for teeth.  But not only that, teeth whitening is the one thing Smiles of Melbourne do, and they do it really well!

The dentist spent some time with me beforehand running through the squillion questions I had, explaining how the product works and alleviating my concerns about sensitivity of my teeth.  I was actually really worried that I would't actually make it through the appointment because of sensitivity.

Then it was into the chair with an extremely attractive (not) thing putting my teeth on show, then whitening formula applied to my teeth, super cool sunnies on and the blue light set in place.  I had to 15 minute bursts of this and voila! White teeth! AND no sensitivity. None whatsoever! Such a relief.  So there you go, a brand new and beautiful white smile in a single appointment.

My white smile can be expected to last 6-12 months depending on how well I take care of it.  It can also be maintained by using off the shelf get products which is good to know.

Jeanswest Active

Active LS top - thanks to Jeanswest
Vest- Uniqlo (similar here)
My number one stop for jeans, Jeanswest, has now launched an Active range which I'm wearing head to toe above.   As always with Jeanswest, the focus is on functional and stylish garments, but this active range is made from performance fabrics that look and feel great.  If you are interested in sizing, I'm wearing the XS in the leggings and S in the crop and top which is the smallest size.  I could would've gone a size smaller on the crop if an XS was available.

Now to my lovely new sneakers! When you know your size and the brands you like, the best prices really are online.  Millet Sports, my most recent discovery, have an extensive collection of running shoes and stock all the major brands including adidas, Asics, Nike, New Balance and Puma for men, women and children.

Long sleeved lace

Lace blouse- thanks to Rosegal
Jeans- Jeanswest (similar here)
Shoes- Witchery (similar luxe, or less)

Another cheap and cheerful top, with this one coming in at less than $13 with free shipping from Rosegal.  You cannot go wrong!  Oh, well actually you could, be sure to size up.  Based on others reviews I went for a medium in this style and would usually be small.

I fallen in love with these shoes, how cute are they! Looking pretty similar in my mind to the Valentino Rockstud Espadrille, I got these from Witchery on the weekend, on sale, for $40! Stoked!! And they work beautifully with this little clutch by Jeanswest, which also comes with a long strap so you can wear it as a cross body style.

I've always wanted my blog to represent what's I do actually wear, to really show how particular pieces translate to everyday wear as a busy working mum, rather than dress up just to take a photograph.  This is what I wore for a trip to Werribee Zoo with Master Ashley on the weekend.  It was really cold so this Icebreaker wool coat (investment piece! via NatureShop) that I've had for three years was perfect, especially layered with a cardigan underneath and this warmest of warm blanket scarf.   These boots from Misano Shoes are the first FLAT ankle boots I've owned, clearly something my wardrobe has been missing because I wear them heaps! So easy to pull on, practical and comfortable while giving my outfit an edge.

You might have noticed I have been wearing Jeanswest a fair bit lately.  Yes, I have been gifted a couple of pairs of jeans and several other pieces which I will always be open about, but the jeans (also seen here) and top I'm wearing above I purchased and this is post is not sponsored by them.  I'm finding that Jeanswest jeans are absolutely amazing and pretty much the main thing I wear now.  Why you ask? They have just the right amount of stretch, maintain their shape really well, are very comfortable and the 7/8 are the perfect length.  I always go for the mid-rise which sits nicely just below the bellybutton.
