Smile Brilliant Review



FullSizeRender 4.jpg

Hi everyone! Today’s post is all about my experience with Smile Brilliant. I'm always smiling and wanting sparkly white teeth. I tried for years to whiten my teeth at home with different toothpastes, mouthwash, white strips etc. I have always wanted to get my teeth professionally whitened at the dentist office but the prices made me turn the other way. So when Smile Brilliant reached out to me, I for sure wanted to give this a try.

The price for this kit is so affordable and what is great is that you can do this all at the comfort of your home. So once you receive your kit, you will create your custom impressions with the catalyst and base paste. Once the impressions are created you will let them sit for 30 minutes and then you can place them in the prepaid envelope. Your impressions will be made and sent back within 3-4 business days. Now how amazing/easy is that? Here is more information about benefits of choosing custom fitted teeth whitening trays.

What's great about Smile Brilliant is that it has two steps, it comes with the teeth whitening gel and also comes with the desensitizing gel. My gums were extremely sensitive but I was told to apply vaseline before whitening my teeth and that did the trick. I started whitening my teeth for 20 minutes and gradually increased the time amount. They do recommend to whiten your teeth at night since you won’t be eating and going to bed.

I am happy with the results, my teeth are much whiter, yay, and I will continue to keep whitening my teeth. Now who doesn't want whiter teeth without stepping out of your house and for fraction of the price. If you would like to see more information check out this video click here.

I seriously have a thing for long vests!! Anyone else?

This one in particular is so chic and I absolutely love layering pieces, especially for the winter season. The color combo is so pretty, I never thought about pairing baby pink and gray together but I am obsessed! You can style this vest so many ways, casual or dressy and it is perfect for any season for sure.


I wore this out for date night and Keven loved it on me and quite a few people asked me where it was from, so make sure to grab yourself one before it sells out, it's under $30!


Here is the direct link to the vest CLICK HERE.


Xoxo,

One Year Blog Anniversary!

FullSizeRender 5.jpg

Oh my god, it's been one year since I started my blog, time sure does fly! I cannot express how happy I’ve been since I started blogging. Most of you probably don't know that I was going thru a really hard time in my life when I started my blog. I felt like my world was falling apart, but once I started blogging it brought back some happiness in my life. It’s seriously my little happy place! Although it is a lot of work, I never find blogging stressful, it's something I am really passionate about.


Seeing myself grow this past year has been great, I have learned so much, made mistakes, reached goals and met so many amazing people. The support I have is unreal, I truly appreciate each and every one of you! Without the support I wouldn't be pushing myself harder and harder to create posts. The blogging community is huge and it’s crazy to think that if I hadn't made that leap to start blogging, I would have never met the people I have and the opportunities that have come my way.


I wanted to share a few things that I have learned and tips for anyone who is thinking of starting a blog. I have learned that if you truly want something it can happen. You have to put 110% percent of your time in it and be consistent, being half ass won’t get you anywhere. Don’t ever try to be like anyone else but yourself, everyone is unique in their own way. Creating good content is key, but create content that interests you, not because it’s what others are doing. Just because a company reaches out to you, it doesn't mean you have to collaborate with them. Collaborating with companies reflects you, so make sure to do your research and see if it's a fit. Unfortunately there will be people who are fake, sad to say it but people will use you to gain whatever that is they are looking for whether it's more likes, followers or even stealing your ideas. Always stay true to yourself, do what you feel is right for you and be confident in everything you do.


I highly encourage anyone that wants to start a blog to definitely just go for it. I had a conversation with someone I met who wanted to start blogging. She wanted to have a high number of followers on instagram first but I told her it doesn’t matter about the amount of followers you have on instagram, just start blogging and you will see your followers grow as you put out content people enjoy reading.


I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in stored for me. I am ready for a New Year and I’m beyond excited to share more fashion, beauty, lifestyle and travel posts.


Happy New Year everyone, wishing you all an absolutely amazing year full of happiness!


Thank you always for the support and positivity!!


Xoxo-
Nina

IGK Hair Products Review

Hi there beauties!

Have you heard of IGK Hair? I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I love trying out new hair products!   

IMG_0818.JPG

Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleansing Oil
This is a great moisturizer, it leaves my hair feeling super clean, shiny, softer and healthy.

Rich Kid- Coconut Oil
This smells amazing and isn’t sticky like other gels but unfortunately this is not a product for my hair type (straight hair). I plan on giving this to a friend that has wavy/curly hair to try out.

Beach Club Texture Spray
Now this is something I LOVE!! Keeps my styled wavy curls in tact all day and it looks naturally beachy and full of volume which I love!!

Overall these products are amazing, I definitely will be repurchasing the Smoke & Mirrors Conditioning Cleaning Oil and Beach Club Texture Spray. You can buy these products directly from their website CLICK HERE or at Sephora CLICK HERE which is great, you can order them online or go in stores to pick it up.

Thank you so much @Influenster and @IGKHair for sending me these hair products.
Let me know if you end up trying these!

Xoxo-
Nina

Skirt: Forever21 (old) SIMILAR CLICK HERE;
Boots: Necessary Clothing (new but sold out) SIMILAR CLICK HERE; SIMILAR CLICK HERE


Hello there my beauties!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and if you went Black Friday shopping, I hope you found some really great deals! You guys, I think I’m in love with winter fashion as much as summer fashion. As you can see from my posts I love to shop on a budget, I choose very wisely on what I splurge on. I love looks that look luxe but for a fraction of the price. I think a lot of you can relate, money sure as hell doesn’t fall from trees!

This color combo has been my favorite, you honestly can’t go wrong with camel/nude colors and black. This waterfall coat has been a staple piece in my wardrobe for the last two years and I see myself wearing it for years to come. This coat pulls the entire outfit together for that luxe look. What do you think? It’s from Boohoo.com, one of my go to sites, they always have sales, literally! Can you believe it’s regular price is $35 (which is already inexpensive) but I got it on sale for $14!! My lace top and faux leather skirt are from Forever21, that store can be a hit or miss but they definitely have staple pieces, you just have to really look. My under $50 thigh high boots are dupes for the Stuart Weitzman ones that are like $800 and my little black handbag is from H&M.

This entire look was under $100 and I have worn each piece in so many different ways. Ladies remember you don’t always need new items all the time, try “shopping” your own closet, it’s really fun! I hope you liked this post, I will be sharing more luxe looks on a budget, so stay tuned!

How To Wear A Romper In The Fall & Winter

FullSizeRender (4).jpg

FullSizeRender.jpg

Over the summer I literally lived in rompers, they were my go to outfits, so easy to style. I certainly think they can be worn in the colder weather as well. In the warmer months I would just throw on some sandals and I was out the door. For the colder weather, you could style them with tights, high socks, boots, whatever makes its wearable for the colder temperatures. I decided to style this beautiful red romper with thigh high boots and added this fun little belt for an edgy look. This romper is perfect for the holidays, a night out with the girls or date night with your lover.

This romper itself is so versatile, you can wear it long sleeved or roll it up for a half sleeve look, how great is that! Make sure to check out where I got this romper, here is the direct link CLICK HERE, another great piece from SheIn, affordable of course!

Dolls SheIn is having free shipping on Black Friday 11/25 and on Cyber Monday 11/28, don't miss out on it because who doesn't love free shipping!

Can’t believe Thanksgiving is in a few days, have a great week everyone!
