Crossfire Series

Who has begun to read the Crossfire Series trilogy? If you haven't, what are you waiting for? If you read the Fifty Shades trilogy and hated it, there's a chance you might not like this trilogy. However, it is a bit different from Fifty Shades. One of the major differences between the two is the fact that both characters in the Crossfire series have been sexually abused sometime in their past. Also different from this series is how both characters come from a high socioeconomic status. Gideon Cross, the Christian Grey of the Crossfire trilogy,  is significantly richer than Eva, the Ana of this trilogy, however. As you read the book, you will read about the struggles Eva and Gideon face as they try to overcome their haunting pasts in order to fulfill a healthy, lasting relationship. This series is definitely a page turner. I am highly irritated that the third installment has not come out yet though. I HAVE to read it already! I did not want to give too much away in case you decide to pick it up. Happy reading!

Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

So, being a member of Influenster has its huge perks and I'm so glad I joined. I received a full 20-day treatment of Crest 3D White Whitestrips with Advanced Seal and I really couldn't wait to try them.

My teeth have always been pretty yellow and I only saw a slight change when I tried the Crest 3D toothpaste. I always wanted to try these strips, but the price would scare me. They cost, on average, about $40. It may not be that much, but my major dilemma was "What if they don't make a difference? That would be like throwing $40 away!" Because of that, I never bothered to purchase them. Then, Influenster came into the picture and I received my very first Crest 3D Whitestrips.

In the box, you receive 20 treatments and a set of instructions. Each treatment pouch contains an upper, slightly longer strip and a lower, smaller strip. The instructions are very easy to follow and you practically do not need them.

I decided to apply the strips at night so that I could really set time aside to use them without forgetting. They advise to not brush your teeth before applying the strips and I followed their instructions due to my fear of teeth sensitivity. I would brush my teeth after removing them because the residue it left behind grossed me out a bit.

I will admit, I did see a difference after three uses which I was very skeptical about. The downside was that I actually had to wait about four days to see these results. The morning after I first used them, I experienced a lot of teeth sensitivity and I was scared to try them that same night. I waited until the next night, and I still experienced teeth sensitivity, but it was tolerable. After the third use and the rest of the uses, I felt no teeth sensitivity. Boy, was I glad that that the sensitivity subsided because if it had not, I would have probably stopped and would not have seen the amazing results.

The picture above shows my teeth before I started the Crest 3D Whitestrips treatment. As you can see, they were pretty yellow and I am embarrassed by the picture! (Taken with no flash)

This picture shows my teeth after the 20 days of treatment. I can definitely see the difference! (taken with no flash)

Here, I'm actually smiling because I am

All in all, I am satisfied with this VoxBox. If I had to rate the strips, I would give them a 9 out of 10. The only reason I don't give them a perfect 10 is due to sensitivity it caused. The results amazed me though and I am glad I was finally able to try them! Definitely try them because "if you're not whitening, you're yellowing!"

Nume 4Play Curling Wand Set

So, I bought the Nume 4Play and I am already in love with it! It heats up super fast which I love! I hate waiting around for my wands or flat irons to heat up. On this level, the 4Play is amazing. The attachments for this wand include the 32mm, 25mm, 19mm and the 13-9mm reverse wand. So far, my favorite ones are the 32mm and 25mm wands. The 4Play sells for $179. However, before you say that's too much, try buying each wand separately. Once you try doing that, you'll see why it's better for your pocket buying the 4Play. Nume provides many codes that can be used to bring the price lower (on their Facebook page and for some  YouTube gurus). On top of that, Nume sponsors many giveaways so you can try your luck in that way!

Best Mascara EVER!

I neglected my blog again! :(
Anyway, today I want to write about my favorite mascara of all time! My favorite mascara of all time comes from Mexico. It goes by the name Apple Super Long Lash. I have been using this mascara for about 7 years. It's CHEAP and I mean cheap! I have seen it online for about 3 dollars each, but where I live, I have seen them for about a dollar! Talk about cheap, ehh? This mascara stays on all day, does not clump, does not smudge and it is CHEAP! I have tried other mascaras, but I will always go back to this one. Other mascaras do not hold my curl and just make my eyelashes go straight. It might have something to do with the not-so-wet consistency though. 
Anyway, try this mascara out. It is AMAZING!
