Daisy - 2Isn’t this daisy necklace sooo summer?! My ‘lil sis sure knows my style ūüôā She got me this necklace in Spain, so every time I wear it I pretend I’m on vacation there. I know it’s a bit silly, but you have to have fun with fashion and have an imagination! Summer style to me, is effortless like this black shift dress and the most comfy espadrilles. Summer is just the greatest.

Smile A smile is all it takes to feel good about yourself and to make somebody’s day. I live by the motto, “You have to look good, to feel good, to do good.” And that’s what you get when you visit Dr. Emery’s Sugar Fix Dental Loft¬†in Roscoe Village (3346 N. Paulina St.). You wouldn’t think that the cutest “shop” on the block is a dental office, but Dr. Emery is changing the way we view visiting the dentist. I actually had so much fun getting my teeth cleaned! It actually felt like I was going to the spa for the day. The dental chair was so comfortable and I even got a warm pillow¬†for my neck and a cashmere blanket¬†for my legs while I watched an episode of Friends on Netflix during my exam. I know! It was unreal! Not only was everything spa-like, but everybody on the team is so friendly and professional.

Sugar Fix Dental Loft¬†is definitely one-of-a-kind not only because it is just a beautiful space, but because they have modern dental technology right there at the loft that they use,¬†compared to waiting around to send them out and have the patient come back multiple times which saves everybody time and money and who doesn’t love that?! No more fearing the dentist. Find a complete list of services here.

Dr. Emery wants everybody to love their smile and as a blogger your smile is your trademark. Together, Sugar Fix Dental Loft and I have teamed up for a Smile Campaign. Beginning July 5th through July 12th, follow Sugar Fix Dental Loft on Instagram and Facebook (along with HAMR on IG & FB) and post a picture of something that makes you smile. Tag it with #sugarfixsmile to win a teeth whitening service for your perfect summer smile ūüôā ¬†Smile SmileSmileSmileSmile
