STORY TIME!!
I am ALL smiles lately because I am FINALLY 1/2 way through my 10 month invisible aligner treatment withCandid! I started tp notice results around month 5, and it’s only been getting better. I wanted to be candid (lol) and share my thoughts on this experience. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Lets start at the beginning. I got braces in Jr High, and it was such a torturous experience. With an underbite and overlapping front teeth, this meant nightly headgear and daily rubber bands. Such a joy. It was literally so painful I would go days without being able to eat. When I finally got my braces off during my sophomore year of high school, I was so happy and confident with my new straight smile. That happiness didn’t last long because my dog ate my retainer only a few months after getting my braces off, and my teeth started going back to their original state. Over the past 6 years, my teeth have gotten worse and worse and I have become more and more insecure. I hated smiling in photos and I actually became quite shy because of my smile. I finally had enough, and decided it was time to get Invisalign.
I came into contact with Candid, and they honestly changed my life. I set up my appointment and met with the sweetest team. It was a very casual experience that was nothing like my younger years in the orthodontist office. (phew) They took scans of my teeth (all digitally, which was not painful at all) and then sent them off to an off-site orthodontist to create my treatment plan. After about 1 month, I received my box of aligners in the mail. My 10 month plan includes 20 sets of aligners which I change out every 2 weeks. Every other Sunday night, I get a reminder email to move on to the next set.
In all honesty, swapping aligners has been quite a painful experience. Don’t let this scare you and stop you from starting your process though! My boyfriend has been wearing his own set of aligners as well, and says it is more of an uncomfortable feeling vs painful. I guess it all depends on your pain tolerance level, and I am a baby ;)
PRO TIPS:
Change your aligners at night before you go to bed, so that you can sleep through the most painful part.WEAR the aligners for the full 22hrs per day. If you don't, your teeth will ache and it causes your aligners to not fit, which means you will have to wear them longer. Chewies are your BFF. Use them to make your aligners fit snugly against the bottom of your teeth. (chewies are the little squishy minty green cylinders that come with your kit)DON'T be afraid to email your Candid contact, because they are so helpful. No questions are stupid.BUY a few more retainer cases off Amazon, I have lost mine a million times.Make sure you brush both the inside + outside of your aligners after you eat, because they can get really gross if you forget to brush them properly.
If you are insecure about your smile, please reach out to Candid(HERE)and get your confidence back :)

I am beyond excited to FINALLY share the news with you! My curated collection withFew Moda is LIVE! I have been keeping my 9 piece collection a secret for the past 3 months, and am thrilled that the cat is out the bag. *whew*From maxis to minis, to pants to 2 piece sets, this collection has something for everyone. I chose a very light and airy color palate with mostly whites, peaches, and light pinks which I believe speaks to every women's skin tone.
Because I have had to stay quiet about this for so long, I want to walk you through this process and share a bit about what has gone into curating this collection over the past few months. Back in March, I started to make my initial selections from line sheets of upcoming styles that Few Moda had the opportunity to bring in. When making my selections, I was looking for the most bohemian pieces in the bunch, and found GORGEOUS dresses and a velvet 2 piece set. These pieces became thePassa Dress &Bushwick Velvet Top + Pant separates.Ruth DressAnother favorite piece of mine is a beautiful white maxi dress with lace inlay. We named this the and it can also be worn unbuttoned as a Kimono. We all know my love for boho, but I also wanted to cater to my more contemporary + professional side with the Mounty Dress &Maza Jumpsuit. These pieces are elevated, form flattering, and fresh! I feel that they are perfect for work, date night, corporate events, and basically anything you want to look fab + put together for. Head over to my Few Moda landing page to take a peek at the other beautiful pieces in the collection :)
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE:
♢ These pieces run a bit small so I recommend to size up.
♢ The material is very high quality and the price point ranges from $87 - $149
I hope you love this collection as much as I do! I cannot wait to hear your feedback. Head over to today's IG story and ask me anything you would like to know about these pieces. I will be doing a Q + A on my stories tomorrow, stay tuned!

CLOSET UPDATE: I finally found a way to display my hat collection and I love how it doubles as art. Seeing them all organized really helps me style outfits! I am a firm believer that you need to see what you have in order to use it. These hats have been getting a ton of love so far this summer.
If you're like me and hoard sunglasses and jewelry, then you need to get yourself a console table. I found this gorgeous carved console at Winnoby Home, and I absolutely love the whimsical touch it adds to my closet. I am all about crisp + clean lines, and this piece keeps my room looking sleek but still has the bohemian details that I love. The 3 drawers are the perfect size to house my sunglasses and keep them organized. I choose to display all of my favorite summer pieces that I have on repeat on top of the table for easy access and to give the room an overall coordinated look. For table styling ideas, head over to my Pinterest.

{This post was sponsored by JNSQ, all writing & opinions are my own.} Getting my hair done has always been one of my favorite ways to relax. You get to chat with your stylist (who is basically a therapist with a cosmetology license) while freshening up your locks. The only thing that could make the experience better is adding wine to the mix. Life just got much sweeter, because JNSQ has become the official wine of the Dry Bar! This means you can sip on #JNSQwines Rose' Cru and try out some of their signature hair styles! I chose old Hollywood waves with the JNSQ rose gold hair pins! The Rose' Cru is one of my favorite Rose's because it has the perfect amount of sweetness with hits of tropical fruit and white peach. It has been my go-to for all of my summer soirees, and it always a crowd pleaser.
JNSQ is offering my readers 10% off their first JNSQ Wine order placed at www.jnsq.com with code EvaCatherineJNSQ10. The discount code is valid now through Labor Day 2019. Scroll for an exclusive look inside the gorgeous launch party in Beverly Hills.
