Get Whiter & Brighter Teeth in 7 Days for this Season

Ok, so my boyfriend has been telling me about these dental white strips that are supposed to make your pearls look snow white and they're reasonably priced. Skeptical about the whole thing, I told him to try it first and if it works for him then I’d follow suit. Since I’m leaving to go out of town next week for a special occasion, I’d figure hey why not and I am here to testify to you ladies!..........................................

(Disclaimer: This is my first time using this product. I am not a representative or affiliate of this company. I am not in any form receiving commission based on what I am writing and nor am I making any promises or guarantees.)

Well………………………………… I started using the Crest white strips two days ago and I’m starting to notice a difference in the appearance of my teeth: they’re appearing WHITER & BRIGHTER!!!!! I should’ve expected this from the beginning since it clearly states on the pack “satisfaction guarantee.” It is economical (compared to seeing a dentist to get the work done) and so easy to use …….. NOT TO MENTION THAT YOU’LL SEE BETTER RESULTS AFTER 7 DAYS. So, if you have a wedding, graduation, or special event to this is for you. All you have to do is peel the strips, apply them onto your teeth and after 30 minutes you could dispose of the strips and reveal your whiteys!! I strongly suggest that you invest in a pack because a whiter smile does make a great difference – it also enhances your appearance as well. I put them on twice a day: driving to work and as soon as I get home. On the 7th day I’ll let you know whether or not this is the real deal!
I don’t know why I didn’t use this sooner – but I’m glad that I am using it period! I’ve always said that white looks great on everything – so why not buy it? And like the company says, “if you’re not satisfied mail in the product and your receipt and they’ll credit you a refund for your purchase.”

So far they really work. There are different types to choose from with different prices, but the whiter & brighter transformation of your teeth will seem pricele$$.

Fragrance of the Month: May

Yep ladies, it's that time of the month again -- no, not the one that comes along with cramping and bloating -- the one where I announce the essential scent that's necessary for this month. And it's definately my personal favorite: Gucci Envy Me.

Envy me is said to be created for the woman who demands attention --- and attention this will definately get you! This dazzling blend of sensual peony, jasmine, and pink pepper is melded with notes of sweet litchi and effervescent pomegranate and pineapple, and smoothed with soothing musk, white tea, and warm woods, is guaranteed to make her the object of desire.

This perfume should be called delicious instead of envy me because it'll leave you feeling yummy all over: and this is my testimony! This scent will leave your man spell bound and your friends envious. It's sweet but light and the same time. It's not a scent that'll leave you with a massive head ache after 30 minutes. This perfume is perfect to wear for the month of May. I wouldn't recommend giving this as a mother's day gift because you may end up using it more than mom. I do highly recommend that you get this for yourself. Get this if you don't want to smell like the next woman. I have yet to wear this perfume and meet someone in the same place with it on. You could wear this for any occasion --- even a romantic night home with your honey bun :)

A 1oz spray runs about $42 ............... Not so sure: try it before you buy it

Come on Ladies - it's *****Gucci*****

Hair Files: Case# 5508 Spring Curls

Let's make this hair season look flawless, effortless, and fierce! Try bumping up big, light, wavey spring curls. Since the temperature's rising - we have no choice but to go light this time; but why not do something that's exciting but not scarey -- Wild but not ghetto, easy to maintain and sassy at the same time. There's no need to hide your beauty under hair waves --- set your natural hair free and let your scalp breathe.

It's simple and easy to get the look: all you need is a big bumper or hot curler, oil treatment to protect both your hair and scalp from the harshness of the sun's ray, and a styling cream. If you have thick hair it may take longer to finish but you don't have to be a genius to get the look. Even if it doesn't look exactly like the picture - you can tease the hair or make the curls look loose as in the picture above with Beyonce.

No matter how long or short your natural hair may be - this style will work for you! Also, since it's a new season try adding something new to your personality by adding highlights to your hair. Before you decide to go darker or lighter, i'd suggest going to to see how the color will look on you. Either way, you're bond to look fierce!!

Throw some Bronze on that B..............ody :) Win a Free Bronzer!

Ever wondered how celebrities such as Mary J Blige, Alicia Keyes, Beyonce, JLo and Kimora Lee Simmons look like they were baked in radiance and how to get that glow? You can now stop wondering because I'm going to give you the juice! It's called a bronzer. Now you, too, can look like a golden goddess. Believe it or not, many ethnic women don't use bronzers because they think that it only works for paled & light skinned people........... (which is absolutely not true) the darker the skin, the worst the results, and that it'll harm your skin in some form or another. Thank god these are all myths. I've personally tried it on darker skinned women and it looked just as spectacular on them as others and I have yet to witness the negative effects. Using a bronzer is a good way to warm your appearance and add glow to it. Bronzers are intended to give you a radiant, shimmer glow in places that's usually exposed to sunlight........... FOR ALL SKIN TONES. You can use a bronzer in place of eye shadow or blush. Bronzers come in the form of liquid, powder, stick, mousse, and cream – to suite your bodily needs. I would recommend using a powdered bronzer when applying on the face and a liquid bronzer for the body. In a liquid form, it will easily distribute throughout the skin evenly - avoiding wasting the product and powder form would work best for the face because it won’t clog up your face - especially for those with oily skin. They're easy to use and wash off. The best time to use a bronzer is during Spring and Summer seasons (You don't want to make the mistake of looking like you've just got a tan in the dead of winter). It's perfect for going to the beach, going out during the day, and if you have an event to tend to in the evening that will expose you to a lot of lights (such as a dance, game, wedding, ect) - go for it. Don't waste your time putting it on if going to the movies.

Tips when using a Bronzer:
When choosing a bronzer – choose one that’s a few shades darker than yours – but not too dark. Too dark shades may look unnatural.
If you want to make your skin luminous, look for products with a subtle shimmer.
Apply the bronzer evenly as possible, so that your skin doesn’t give off an orange appearance. Never overdo it when applying: your skin will look unnatural.
Apply the bronzer on areas where the sun usually hits.
When applying, make sure that your application isn’t too heavy.
If you use a powder bronzer apply it with a big, round brush. Start from the center of your face and work outwards.
When using a bronzer keep your makeup as simple and natural as possible. Avoid applying too much makeup after you have applied bronzer. Keep your foundation to a minimum if you wear bronzer on your face, otherwise your complexion may look too orange.
The bronzer should be a few shades darker than your skin tone. Stay away from the orange tones - it’ll look unnatural and fake.
Wash your hands after application.
Avoid contact with eyes and clothes for at least one hour after application.
Use bronzer in place of blush, sweeping it over cheekbones will add definition to the face.

My Fav Bronze ---it works magic!!!!
