I didn't realize how many accessories featuring body parts I was wearing until I started taking pictures. I suppose it's just a tooth ring, anatomical heart necklace and tooth collar clips but it's probably more body parts than most people would ever be caught wearing at once. Hah! The necklace is not only adorable, it's pretty special too. Scarlett Garnet will donate 15% to St. Lukes Hospital Women's Heart Health Center for each one purchased. Heart Disease is the leading cause of death for females, and has hit close to home for Scarlett Garnet. You can read about it on Garnet Griebel's, co-owner of SG, blog here. Prepare to cry!

So, speaking of teeth, these are the last new pictures of me you'll ever see with braces! Well, not that you can even see my braces but they were there, believe me. Yesterday I got my braces removed. Two long years and I'm finally at the end of that journey. I'm kind of obsessed with my teefers now. But I won't get too much into that subject right now, I'm hoping to write a little something more about my time with braces soon. (That being said, if you have any questions about my experience with braces let me know and I just might answer them in an upcoming post!)

Hope you're having an awesome week, I know I sure am!!
xoxo

  5. Oh I am so happpy for your teeth to be free of braces!
    I am having my own teeth woes at the moment, I have just had a root canal, then my toothache came back and the dentist took more x-rays and discovered they have done the root canal on the wrong tooth, so I need to have another :( gaah.

    YAY! Congrats on getting your braces off! Isn't it the weirdest/most awesome feeling ever?! I went out to eat right afterwards and the waiter gave me some gummy bears! What are you excited to eat again?

    1. There's actually nothing I like that I didn't eat with my braces. I chewed gum, ate popcorn, salt water taffy and everything the whole time.

  23. Your shirt is awesome, and I love your hair, too! And the feeling of getting braces off is awesome--my sister just got braces for the first time this week....poor kid, she didn't know what she was agreeing to!

  24. Ooh how amazing about getting your braces off!

    When I got mine off, I looked straight in the mirror and burst into tears! I hated the way I looked without them. They really suited me, funnily enough, and then I suddenly had this face full of too much teeth!

    Luckily I got over that pretty quickly!
