Carbon Coco Teeth Whitening Review

Hey peeps,

So a few months back this company reached out to me wanting to send me their teeth whitening kit to review. After briefly looking at some YouTube reviews & getting mixed results I decided try it. My son & I both tried it as a matter of fact, I’m only posting my results though! I found this product to be easy to use and it’s semi-messy depending on the precautions you take with the space you’re using this product on. The charcoal spreads quickly on your teeth once you get it on your teeth (don’t swallow this product, not even a little bit). After about 5 minutes I rinsed my mouth out and used the toothpaste for about 2 minutes.

I used this product for 2 weeks, I must say that I do see a difference in the color of my teeth. I tend to eat a lot of dishes made with curry so it has the potential to stain my teeth. I would recommend this product, I don’t buy teeth whitening kits, I do buy toothpaste with it in it.

The toothbrush they send with it broke so I used one the dentist gave me.

If you haven’t tried a teeth whitening kit yet, I don’t think it would hurt to give it a try. Should this company reach out to you to try this product, I think it’s worth the test. It’s easy to use, a fast process and portable!! You can check out Coco Carbon products HERE!! SMILE!!

Clairol Root Touch Up via Influenster review

*sample release*

I can remember the day I spied the enemy within my hairline, that day cookies and cream became my favorite ice cream flavor lol. Nah, but seriously, what does getting grey hair really mean tho? It definitely doesn’t mean you’re about to die, it just means you’re about to start buying some hair dye lol!!

I wanna say it has been within the last 5 years that I have been dyeing the front of my hairline, it is the only place that’s going grey for now. When I dye my hair I normally use the Dark & Lovely “natural black” color which lasts me about 6 weeks.

When Influenster invited me to review the Clairol Root Touch Up hair product I was intrigued and up for the challenge. This product is pretty much a “quick fix” hair product and I recommend this for people who are on-the-go a lot because it’s an easy carry around. It looks like an eyeshadow pallet honestly.

If you don’t want to be bothered with the messy dye all over your hands, clothes or sink then this is your girl…. it’s so user friendly you can do it with your eyes closed.

Here are my results

Before

After

It applies just like putting on eyeshadow, the formula is a powder substance and covers the grey instantly!! The cons to this is that it’s not long lasting and you should expect transfer while putting on shirts over your head as well as transfer to your pillow.

I will definitely use this in between dyeing sessions!!

Have you started to grey in your hairline? If so, what do you use as a Root Touch Up?

Way Back Wednesday #6

Guess what day it is!! 

Yes, you guessed it! Not just hump day…. WAY BACK WEDNESDAY!!

Welcome back to the 6th episode, today features a polish collection circa 2014. I actually did not hunt these girls down, I just happened to spot them on a random stroll down the beauty aisle at Kmart. The display caught my attention, I googled them but weren’t able to find out much just that they are textured finish.

I liked these because the colors weren’t the common colors that brands were releasing like the reds, oranges, pinks. I remember these being semi sheer on the first two coats, but the third coat covered it opaque.

Here’s Rimmel’s 2014 textured finish polish collection “Sweetie Crush”.

Were you able to nail these?

Stay tuned for next week’s episode 7 of Way Back Wednesday, thanks for reading!

I’ve got plans

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a lover of journals and the freedom it allows a person to be one with your thoughts. My mother was never a fan of it because she always mentioned the possibility of it landing in the wrong hands (or eyes). I never cared about that as I would always put a “read at your own risk” warning label on the front of my journals lol. 

Planners are the same as journals but different if that makes any sense. One can still jot down their thoughts AND include daily reminders of important daily activities. I have taken a liking to planners, Create 365 The Happy Planner to be specific. I went back and forth trying to decide the best one that represents me (which you’ll see is so me). I can literally spend hours in Michael’s, Hobby Lobby & Joann’s looking at the various styles of planners. 

I tell you no lie that I stumbled upon a “plan with me” (PWM) video on YouTube and I was immediately sold! Just the way you can buy or make sticker kits to spruce up your planner set, my creative gears were set in motion. Y’all remember my paper pad post, those will come in handy too!! 

Now Create 365/The Happy Planner/ MAMBI (Me & My Big Idea) recently released a new Happy Planner Girl collection of 12 planners (along with matching accessories) exclusive to Hobby Lobby & Joann’s Fabric on October 16. From the moment they uploaded a showcase preview on their YouTube channel of the entire collection, I set my eyes on one and went on a mission. 

I managed to snag these at Hobby Lobby last Friday cause a girl needs to use those 40% off coupons (and not pay shipping).

I chose Glam Girl 

And a few of its accessories

I also purchased some sticker books

This planner is dated but I’m anticipating using this planner for a very long time…. Glam IS my jam!!
Are you the planner type? If so, what are currently using and what’s your favorite planner brand?
