My Travel Look + The Most Interesting Podcast Episodes I’ve Heard Lately

Life has been pretty busy recently, and we have had lots of road trips. Last weekend, we went to California to Will’s brother’s wedding which involved a cross-country flight and a few hours in the car. With that trip and several other road trips this summer, I have burned through A LOT of podcast episodes. But a few particularly interesting podcast episodes stand out. So today, I am revealing these share-worthy podcasts and my travel look from the weekend.

But first, a couple of shots from our California adventure…

The 5 Most Interesting Podcast Episodes I’ve Heard Lately

When it comes to podcasts, I think I am pretty picky. Most of all, I enjoy listening to entertaining, intriguing people talk about their personal experiences, relationships and things that impact the way we all coexist in this world. I love hearing about something new. Add a bit of drama or something unusual, and I’m sucked in. If this sounds at all like some of the criteria that goes into your podcast picks, you should check out the episodes I’ve shared!

Emotional LaborDear Sugars

This podcast episode highlights the invisible work that is done most often exclusively by wives and girlfriends. There’s a never-ending list of things women are taught to handle from a young age: making the grocery list, coordinating with the babysitter, making food for the party, scheduling a get-together with family and keeping track of all the appointments. The list goes on! What I found most interesting about this episode was how most men were oblivious to the invisible work discussed and how these social constructs seem to be shifting now that most adult men and women are working full-time jobs in the U.S.

Katie Couric on Death & Dishonesty – Death, Sex & Money

In this interview, Katie Couric opens up about her first marriage and how they dealt with his diagnosis and ultimate death. She shares a valuable perspective on what it’s like to see someone you love dying and how you keep moving forward, while allowing space to grieve.

Sharing DNA and Nothing Else  – Death, Sex & Money

Have you ever thought of taking a mail-in DNA test? Amy did just that and the results she got rocked her world. This is a fascinating podcast episode about family dynamics and what it really means to call someone family.

Rip It Life: Building Your Dream Career & Still Enjoy Life with Al GoldmanThe Confused Millennial

Are you the type of person to pick-up your bags and move across the country in one week’s time? I can’t say for sure that I am, but I loved hearing how fellow 20-something Al Goldman did this, all while making big career moves and maintaining a work-life balance. Al and Rachel, of the Confused Millennial, have a refreshing discussion about the importance of being as passionate for your career as you are for the life outside of your 9 to 5.

Jimmy Fallon Will Never Make Fun of YouHere’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin

The one and only Jimmy Fallon has a candid chat with Alec Baldwin about his rise to fame. He shares a lot of interesting insights about his life. And unsurprisingly, this is a really fun and entertaining podcast to listen to. It’s perfect if you could use a laugh and some motivation for achieving your dreams!

Here’s The Thing with Alec Baldwin is a great podcast for movie buffs, since Baldwin has a lot of personal interviews with various Hollywood insiders. Death, Sex & Money is my all-time favorite podcast. I have been listening to it for several years and always find the stories refreshing and entertaining. In contrast, Dear Sugars and The Confused Millennial are the two most recent podcasts I have started listening to that I love. Dear Sugars shares letters from around the country to kickoff conversations that mostly circle around relationships and social constructs. The Confused Millennial has a lot of episodes about living your best life, from career to self-improvement, and the host Rachel keeps things real!

Here’s my airport look from our travels last weekend!

Top (Similar) | Sweatshirt (Similar) | Ripped Jeans | Slide-on Sneakers | Suitcase | Bag (Similar) | Bracelet | Sunglasses

The slide-on sneakers I wore were perfect for the airport! They come in a modern metallic grey, that has just enough shine to spice up your outfit and they are super comfy! I always have to travel with a sweatshirt or sweater too. What do you prefer to wear at the airport?

I love listening to podcasts during my commute and travels most of all. So, I’m curious to hear when you listen to podcasts and what you’ve been listening to.

What is the most interesting podcast episode you have heard lately?

Have you listened to any of the episodes I shared, or any of the podcasts in general?  What type of podcasts do you like to listen to? Let’s chat in the comments!

The Truth about the First 100 Days of Marriage

Everyone said it would fly by and it really did. The special day we anticipated for months came and went in a flash. Now, it has been a whole 100 days since Will and I got married. While it seems like we got married yesterday, we have also accomplished and learned a lot in the past 100 days! Today I wanted to share the truth about our first 100 days of marriage. People often question if marriage really changes the dynamic of a relationship, so I am going to touch on that as well. Here are our honest and personal opinions.

The Logistics

For both of us, married life has not felt much different from the year we spent engaged. I moved in with Will last summer, so aside from us (mainly me!) doing some additional decorating now that we are married, our home dynamic is the same. We still go grocery shopping, cook together and enjoy talking about our days on walks at night. It’s not particularly exciting or glamorous but they are the steady aspects of our relationship we can find comfort in.

"The

Our Biggest Change

We instantly agreed on what the single biggest change is that we have experienced since entering into married life. Now, we have much more free time! We knew wedding planning was taking up a lot of time, even more than I had originally anticipated. But, I didn’t realize just how much it took the focus off our long term plans, something Will and I have loved talking and dreaming about together since day one. Now that we are married, conversations about our future together are back in full force. We have a renewed excitement for where we are right now and everything that is to come.

Since getting married, other changes for us have included a new job for Will and some changes in my career. Will’s new job requires more travel than his previous one, so I have had to (and am still trying to) get used to weeks with less quality time than I’d like! I welcome any and all tips for those of you with a partner who travels a lot.

Level of Commitment

While we agreed about having extra time to think about our plans, Will and I have different views when it comes to the commitment that comes with marriage. Will said today he feels no different about his commitment to me than he did last year. I, however, can’t help but feel like sharing our vows publicly cemented and strengthened our commitment to each other. It is hard to explain, but I have felt an extra comfort and security ever since we exchanged our vows.

I wonder if our difference in opinion is something men and women often view differently. Will, like most men, solidified his commitment when he decided to propose. In contrast, I place a lot of value on words, so I feel like there was a difference in me saying, “Yes, I’ll marry you!” and “I promise I’ll always be there for you. I am yours forever.”

Reminders

The first 100 days have been action-packed and full of change for us. We have a tendency to pack a lot on our plates and do as many fun things as we can. While this is an intention that comes from our excitement to do new things together, we’ve had to remind ourselves that there is no reason to rush. Slowing down and spreading out our plans helps us enjoy each new and individual experience more thoroughly.

In the past 100 days, we have celebrated my little brother’s high school graduation and my grandfather’s 80th birthday. We’ve gotten some beach time with family, had a long weekend in the woods and have enjoyed a hike, kayaking and two motorcycle racing weekends. Looking back, I’m not sure how we did all these things! We were originally supposed to go to Europe the month after our wedding, and due to feeling overwhelmed with all the things on our schedules, we postponed that trip. That might just be the best, first decision we made as a married couple! Hopefully, we can continue to pace ourselves.

Still Learning

When I first met Will, I was overwhelmed by all the questions he asked and just how much he wanted to know about me. Our relationship has grown a lot since that hot summer day, but I’m constantly reminded there are lessons learn about each other and our relationship. We are constantly growing and discovering new things about each other.

Three years into our relationship and 100 days into our marriage and I still wake up thinking, “How did I get so lucky?!” I hope we never stop feeling grateful to have each other. But, just like before marriage, we have our ups and downs, both individually and as a couple. One of the hardest times for me before marriage was losing my job. But going through that experience together gave us a vital lesson. When one of us is down, the person who is in a better state, has to pull the other back up and offer support. Our highs and lows provide us with lessons to make our relationship stronger. We love each other without expectation that the other will magically “save us,” and with the appreciation that being with the other person makes our lives feel completely whole.

“In all the world there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world there is no love for you like mine.” – Maya Angelou

Before marriage, I wondered whether or not marriage can change relationship dynamics, and I have a new perspective now that I’m married. I don’t think a relationship changing positively or negatively after marriage is necessarily the result of the marriage. The quality of a marriage is the result of the continual time and care both partners put in.

Are you married or planning a wedding? I would love to hear if you think marriage changes the dynamic of relationships.

Do you think the level of commitment changes when you get married? Or, do you think marriage is just a social construct and a legal change that doesn’t matter? Let’s chat in the comments.

Cheers!

The Scoop on a New Electric Toothbrush + Coupon Code!

The Scoop on a New Electric Toothbrush + Coupon Code - Smile Brilliant CariPRO Review - SCsScoop.com

Today I’m sharing the scoop on Smile Brilliant’s new Electric Toothbrush, and I am super excited because I have a special deal to share with you! Earlier this year, I tested Smile Brilliant’s at-home teeth whitening kit to ensure I had the brightest pearly whites for my wedding. I was super impressed with my results! So, when Smile Brilliant reached out about trying their new electric toothbrush, I knew I had to check it out. Let’s dive in to my cariPRO™ Electric Toothbrush review and the good news for y’all!

The Scoop on a New Electric Toothbrush + Coupon Code - Smile Brilliant CariPRO Review - SCsScoop.com

What’s Inside the cariPRO Electric Toothbrush Individual Package?

I received the individual package for the cariPRO™ Electric Toothbrush, which costs $119 and comes with:

  • 1 cariPRO™ Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush
  • 2 premium replacement heads with tongue scraper & DuPont™ bristles
  • 1 Wireless charging dock

In addition to this package, Smile Brilliant offers a Deluxe Package with 2 more replacement heads at $129 and a Couple’s Package, which is essentially everything in the Individual package times two. The Couple’s Package costs $199.

What Sets it Apart?

After using this electric toothbrush for the past couple weeks, I am still amazed at how clean my teeth feel after brushing. One of my favorite things about the cariPRO is the 2 minute auto-interval timer, which pauses at the end of 30 seconds, signaling you to start brushing the next quadrant of your mouth. This helps ensure you are brushing your teeth evenly and for the right amount of time. Here are a more things that set the cariPRO apart:

  • 40,000 Vibrations per Minute: I think this is a big reason why my teeth feel SO clean after brushing!
  • 5 Brush Modes: Clean, White Massage, Gum Care & SensitiveThe Clean setting was my personal favorite and I enjoyed using the Gum Care mode along my gum line.
  • 30-Day Battery Life
  • Slim and light-weight design with gray soft-touch grip: The design is really good-looking and it cleans easily.
  • Waterproof Design: It is totally safe for shower or bath!
  • Price: Compared to other electric toothbrushes with 5 modes, the cariPRO is about half the price. The replaceable toothbrush heads are also quite reasonably priced.

For me, the only downside of the cariPRO electric toothbrush has been that there is no travel case. I want to take the toothbrush with me, but have been too nervous that it would get damaged in a suitcase. A hard travel case would be awesome to have, so I hope Smile Brilliant makes them. Other than that, I have loved this toothbrush. There is no way I am going back to a manual one!

Now, it’s time for the BEST news for you!

I have a special code for you to get 50% off your own cariPRO electric toothbrush. That means you can get the Individual Package for $59.50!!
