1. I WENT OVERSEAS FOR THE FIRST TIME
Not only was it my first time overseas, but I celebrated it for my 30th birthday! I spoke into existence that I wanted to turn 30 in another Country and I booked a trip to Dubai! All within 6 months! I bought my plane ticket in July of ’17 and from then on, worked several odd jobs to save up for the big trip. A moment I’ll NEVER forget.

2. MORE DECIPLINED WITH FINANCES
Speaking of saving up, one of my goals was to be more disciplined with my money. I mean, sure, I always was responsible and payed my bills but to really watch how I spent the rest. I realized its honestly not about how much you make but what you spend your money on! Don’t get me wrong, making more on the job makes a difference, but I challenge you to look at your bills. Are they a luxury or a necessity? Sometimes, sacrifices must be made to reach personal financial goals. Trust me, theres always a way around watching cable on the internet if you cut that cable bill.
3. GOT A NEW CAR!
This past Summer, I took a big step out on faith and got a new car! I always dreamed of being the first owner of a car and it came true! I’m a big fan of Hondas, so naturally, I had to stay loyal. I got a 2017 Honda Accord. It has a lot more room than previous cars I’ve driven and a little more luxurious, I think. I literally can stretch my leg in my car and I love that!
MY 30TH BIRTHDAY TRIP TO DUBAI!
What’s up V.I.P’s! Happy Holidays! If you’ve been keeping up with me on Instagram (vernonsblog), you’ve seen that I recently visited Dubai! I went for my 30th birthday which was a huge accomplishment and milestone for me. It was the first time I went out of the Country and I am so proud of myself! I had so much fun, I even vlogged everyday I was there. I also share free activities you can do and share some insightful information on bundled activity deals so your not wasting time and money paying for individual activities.

I never payed much attention to my teeth. I barely did the minimum. I only brushed my teeth once a day, flossed and rinsed and that was it. I never kept tabs of going to the dentist regularly, unless I had a tooth problem but within the past year, I’ve been paying more attention to my dental hygiene, mainly out of fear that I’d lose my teeth one day or lose my pretty smile. All of that was great, but I still was missing something: Making sure my teeth were white.
Brushing your teeth, flossing, rinsing is nice but making sure your dentures are white is another story. Even if you go and get them “cleaned” like I have in the past, it doesn’t mean your teeth will be white. Most people assume the dentist is whitening your teeth and that’s not always the case. That’s a separate procedure and something thats costs separately from getting your teeth cleaned. Some folks are blessed with genetics of having natural white teeth and some, like myself, not so much.
I realized that I had a nice smile (For me that means the form/shapes of my teeth are nice) but they were always kinda yellow. I thought of whitening my teeth before with at home whitening kits we see at the store but never acted upon it. Well, my wake up call would soon follow. I had the opportunity to whiten my teeth with Smile Br!lliant for a consecutive 2 weeks and it worked amazingly. It truly opened my eyes at going a step further in taking care of my teeth’s heath and appearance.
