A Perfect Color Combination

I always loved this color combination. The black leather adds a fun touch to my today’s streetstyle look. Love to be creative with my outfits! -)

Rootie the Rootlifter by Voloom

I love long hair, but not just long hair…I love hair with volume. And so I was very excited to receive complimentary and try out a volumizing iron designed just for that specific purpose!

Rootie the Rootlifter is such a smart idea. Its checker-like surface when heated and used on the under layers of my hair, gives it an instant lift without backcombing! I was honestly getting tired of teasing my hair every time I styled it, but I will no longer have to do it.

I love that I use less products on my hair now while styling it, but get even better results. The specific surface pattern of the Rootie the Rootlifter helps create that subtle texture in the under layers of my hair, which lifts the top layer of my hair up and gives it a perfect lasting volume.


I am honestly very happy that I found this iron and it is a “must” for me every time I style my hair! I definitely recommend it!


Get Ready For Shaklee YOUTH Skin Care Set

I love trying new skincare products! That’s why I was so excited to receive a gift from Shaklee with some of their top beauty products. Their Shaklee Youth skin care set includes six products. All the products target and address aging at the cellular level of the skin, which is exactly why I was excited to use it.

Shaklee YOUTH

Shaklee YOUTH products are all 100% vegan and cruelty free. Their comprehensive “free of” list contains over 2,500 harmful chemicals and questionable ingredients that you will never find in any of their YOUTH products.

I’ve been using the products for a week now, and my skin feels more refreshed and smoother. The products are beautifully packages, and I love how their fresh scent.

Shaklee YOUTH

The four products of the Youth Activating BB Cream SPF30 are supposed to be used in steps. They correct, hydrate, nourish, and protect the skin with chemical free SPF30 sunscreen.

The Youth Activating Serum is the one I was especially looking forward to trying out, and I did like how refreshed and rejuvenate my skin feels.

And the best is the last…the product I absolutely love is the Radiance C+E.

Shaklee YOUTH

The packaging is beautiful, and it’s fun using the golden capsules once a day. It’s different, and you can be sure you are using the perfect amount of it. -)

It’s been only a week since I started using it, but my skin already appears to look brighter and feels smoother. I definitely want to continue using it, and I am sure I will see even better results.

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection

Long and healthy hair is what I always loved and wanted, and so I am very open to trying new hair products to find the ones that are the best for my hair. However, I have to admit that no matter which products I trying, I still keep going back to Pantene brand. That changed a few months ago, after I tried Kenra Professional for the first time. (Click here to see the review.) Today I am happy to try Kenra Platinum Collection that I received in the mail a few weeks ago.

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection

The collection includes 5 products:

Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Shampoo

Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Conditioner

Kenra Platinum Snail CC Crème

Kenra Shaping Spray

Kenra Platinum Heat Block.

All a girl needs! -)

I wrote about Kenra Professional® before, but let me just remind you that it’s a purely professional brand dedicated to understanding and serving today’s stylists. Three unique brands, Kenra, Kenra Platinum, and Kenra Color, are each driven by the daily needs of stylists. A complete range of high-performance products combined with straightforward and accessible education gives stylists the confidence to address every client’s need.

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection

Each of the products of Kenra Platinum Collection is great and has it’s own purpose.

The Anti-Aging Shampoo is enriched with Snail Essence, which is a highly concentrated blend of proteins. I like how my hair feels smooth, shiny ,and squeaky clean after washing. However, it also feels a little dry…And that’s a perfect time for my favorite Kenra product…Kenra Platinum Snail Anti-Aging Conditioner! If there was only one product I could have for my hair, it would be this one. It delivers moisture, radiance and resilience to my hair, it really does!

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection

Next product is Kenra Platinum Snail CC Crème. I‘ve never used hair creams, but I gave this one a try. It’s lightweight and without styling hold. My hair feels soft and has a healthier look as a result.

Here is a great news! Kenra introduces the 1st ever professional alcohol free hairspray. It’s Kenra Shaping Spray. It maximizes moisture retention and, the best part is… it adds high shine finish to my hair!

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection
I am guilty of sometimes styling my daughter’s hair with a hairdryer and occasionally straightening it. So using this next product on her hair makes me feel a little better. It’s Kenra Platinum Heat Block Spray. It provides heat protection up to 450 degrees F and finishes with a high hold. It’s enriched with bee propolis, a natural resin that forms a cast around the cuticle for unparalleled heat protection.

Reviewing Kenra Platinum Collection

As a result of trying this new Kenra Collection, I like all the products. The only thing is that the shampoo felt like it was drying my hair a little. But if followed with Kenra conditioner right after, the results are amazing! Plus, I found my favorite conditioner that replaces the Pantene conditioner I’ve used for many years.

Kenra Platinum Collection is available at ULTA Beauty.
Thank you @Influenster and @KenraProfessional for sending me the Kenra Platinum Collection complementary to hear my honest review!

C-ESTA Serum by Jan Marini

A few months ago, I was introduced to Jan Marini Skin Research brand, and learned that it’s one of the most respected brands in professional skin care. I received their Hyla3D skincare product, used it and wrote my review about it. I was impressed by the product; in fact, it’s an important part of my daily routine now.

Since I liked the results I got from the first product they sent me, to receive another one from Jan Marini was exciting. It’s C-ESTA Serum!

C-ESTA Serum by Jan Marini

The description for the product states that it’s “a powerful antioxidant cocktail, featuring Vitamin C and DMAE, shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin texture.” And that’s exactly what I want to see on my face… I want to see no wrinkles, and I expect lift, firm and tighten the appearance of facial contours…. Who wouldn’t want that?!

C-ESTA Serum

After using it for a couple of weeks, almost every day, I must say that I like the product. I used C-ESTA Serum daily on my face and neck daily. Just like Hyla3D, it gives my skin a tingling sensation right after applying it on, and in a minute or so it makes my skin feel tighter and look smoother. I believe it reduces the appearance of my wrinkles.

C-ESTA Serum

However, I tend to go back to the Hyla3D, as I like how much smoother and hydrated skin feels after it. I also like it’s thicker and creamier texture more than of the C-ESTA Serum.

With all that said I like both products. They both make my skin feel more youthful and hydrated. They are also both great for all types of skin!
But, if there was only one product I can buy out of the two, Hyla 3D is my first choice.

I do recommend you to try out Jan Marini skincare product, and if you do, use it routinely. You will see your skin more youthful younger and healthier looking skin.

Comfortable At Home Teeth Whitening + a GIVEAWAY!

This post is special for many reasons!

Read it till the end to find the link to the GIVEAWAY for a chance to get a FREE Professional At Home Teeth Whitening Kit ($159) you’re about to read my honest review on!

Just like many of us, I love drinking coffee, especially in the morning. I enjoy it because it tastes great and gives me energy, but staining my teeth is definitely the downside.

Smile Brilliant

In the past, I whitened my teeth with whitening strips. My first experience in using them was an instantaneous result. After applying the strips for 7 consecutive days, I noticed my teeth were very sensitive to the treatments. Another downside was my inability to whiten all my teeth.

Teeth Whitening

So as you can imagine I was thrilled to receive the at-home teeth whitening kit

from Smile Brilliant. It was the perfect timing to test it out! Just think…I can whiten my teeth from home, and still get the professional results without going to the dentist! It sounds perfect, but does it work?!

Smile Brilliant

I was pleasantly surprised with how gentle the whitening process was. Since my teeth are naturally sensitive

to whitening treatments I was impressed with the results of the desensitizing gel which is applied afterwards to reduce gum sensitivity while reducing the threat of future stains.

The whitening process is simple. All you do is follow the instructions that are included in the box. It explains everything step-by-step with photos.

Step 1: Mix the two pastes to create your dental impressions.

1edental impressions

Step 2: Send impressions to Professional Lab Service. The envelope is included with the box. All postage between you and the lab is covered.

Step 3: Receive your custom-fitted teeth whitening trays

 in 3-5 business days.
Smile Brilliant2b

Step 4: Start the whitening process.

Smile Brilliant 3

My experience turned out to be great.

Smile Brilliant

The trays were molded and sculpted to perfectly fit my teeth. The texture of the trays was soft and comfortable on my gums. Since my teeth are sensitive, I chose to whiten every other day, and still saw amazing results.

Without a doubt, I definitely recommend Smile Brilliant. Out of my experience with other brands, I feel like this product delivers honest results.

How Much Is Teeth Whitening

Top 5 of Kenra Professional Hairsprays

Kenra Professional® is a purely professional brand that offers a complete range of high-performance products that gives stylists the confidence to address every client’s need. These past few weeks my daughter and I were those clients.

Kenra Hairspray

I was happy to receive and try each of Kenra’s top hairsprays! I got a package of 5 total hair products in my mail:

– Kenra Platinum HiDEF Hairspray 16
– Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray 26
– Kenra Perfect Medium Spray 13
– Kenra Ultra Freeze Spray 30
– Kenra Volume Spray 25

As it turned out, it was a perfect combination of hairsprays to see how similar and different they work, and to find the one that works best for my hair.

Kenra Perfect Medium Spray 13

Kenra (2)

I liked how Kenra Perfect Medium Spray 13 kept the shape of my hair and was easy to brush through. I curled my hair with a curling iron and used Medium Spray to finish up styling it. As a result, there were no hard curls. My hair still felt soft, light, and looked wavy.Kenra (3)

Kenra Volume Spray 25

Kenra (4)

Kenra Volume Spray 25 has a super hold for 120 hours! It’s also 24 hour humidity resistant and wind resistant up to 25 MPH! Those are some impressive numbers!

Kenra (5)

It does have a strong hold and flake-free. I imagine this would be the best hairspray to use if I am going to a wedding at the beach.

Kenra Ultra Freeze Spray 30

Kenra (6)

Kenra Ultra Freeze Spray 30 means hairspray and shine in one. This hair product is long-lasting and has an ultra-firm hold. It will ensure that your hair will stay in place for many hours. It’s also flake-free and humidity resistant. Perfect if you want your hairdo to last long, especially where I live, in a humid place like Florida.

Kenra (7)

Kenra Platinum HiDEF Spray 16

Kenra (8)

HiDEF Hairspray 16 is a light-defusing finishing spray that holds undone styles with a matte finish. It sets the texture, body and fullness. I like how natural and fresh my hair is. However, because I prefer my hair shiny, I still added shine as a final touch. -)

Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray 26

Kenra (9)

Finishing Spray 26 provides maximum control with long-lasting lift and style retention. This hair product is my favorite, and I did use it more often than any other ones. It’s fast-drying, humidity resistant, and has my favorite feature…it has high shine!

I usually wear my hair down, and most of the time it’s straightened with a flat iron. This hairspray does keep my hair with a nice volume and is humidity-resistant. My favorite part is that it leaves my or my daughter’s hair slick and shiny.   Kenra (10) Kenra (11)

To summarize, all five hair products worked great on my and my daughter’s hair. I have a favorite, but not because it performed better than the other, it’s because this specific one works the best for the hair style I wear the most. From now on, Kenra Platinum Finishing Spray 26 is my go to every day hairstyle product.

Kenra (12)

Prior to this try-out, I honestly didn’t think much about why there are so many different hairsprays. I thought the only difference was how strong they were. Now I see why there are  so many choices of hairsprays, because many things are taken into consideration. All you have to do is to decide which hairspray suits best the style you are going for…whether you want a dressy hairstyle that will last for many hours or natural loose curls, shiny and slick hair or matte and with texture, etc.

Kenra Professional is here to help you. It offers you great products to choose from! And the products are amazing!

Spring Renewal with Jan Marini’s most recent product launch, Hyla3D!

A few weeks ago, I got Hyla3D skincare product in my mail. I was very excited to try it out!

Hyla3D is Jan Marini’s most recent product that takes a 3-dimensional approach to restore skin’s hydration, youthful volume, smoothness, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Jan Marini Hyla3D

I started using it routinely twice a day in the morning and in the evening. In the morning, I wash my face and moisturize it. Then it’s time for Hyla3D! I only use 2-3 pumps to apply it to my entire face and neck.


When in the evening, I apply it after all my makeup is off and my face is well moisturized. My skin feels great, as the product absorbs quickly and doesn’t dry it.


So far I am happy with the product, but I am not done using it. It looks like the more I use it, the more results I get. -)

Thank you Jan Marini for letting me try this great skincare product!

Necklace as an Inspiration

This beautiful necklace from Ettika was my inspiration to style the elegant and feminine look I wore today. This unique-style necklace made me think of the midi skirt I bought from ASOS a while ago, but had no idea what to wear it with. So, for whatever reason, I felt like these two items would go together perfectly. I hope I was right! -)

Ettika Necklace as an Inspiration

The Ettika necklace is so pretty! You will see me wearing it quite often, as it goes with so many looks. Visit Ettika online store to see an amazing collection of jewelry they have. There is lots of amazing pieces to choose from.

Even better, if you decide to buy this necklace or anything else you like from their collection, I give you a special code to get 15% OFF of your purchase!!! It’s even better isn’t it?! -)
