whitening teeth at home: results

whitening teeth at home

Last week I showed you my manky yellow teeth {and wrinkles, but that’s neither here nor there} before I used some whitening strips on them. They were manky and yellow {or brown some say}, and now: What do you think? I put them on while I worked for two hours and no one noticed.  Sure, I work at home, but I was able to do a whole bunch of phone calls without anyone telling me I sounded 12.  With braces. …

crest white strips

I’ve officially lost any vanity I might have ever had.  I mean, I share all kinds of personal information with you, but I never show you actual photos of me in bed for weeks at a time, or pictures of me un-showered with bedhead.  But today?  I’m showing you a photo of my yellow teeth. I know.  Never mind the wrinkles.  I’m an unapologetic sun worshiper, and I have the laugh lines around my eyes to show for it. Anyway,…

How To Citrus Scrub

how to citrus scrub

I don’t know about you, but I’m always sad to see the summer go.  Like really, really sad.  I’m a summer girl, one hundred and ten percent.  Winter makes me feel like I need to curl up and die.  Not to be confused with ‘Curl up & Dye’, a hair salon in what movie?  Ten points to Gryffindor for the first one to get it right. Are you here from StumbleUpon?  Thanks so much for visiting!  If you like what…

O.P.I. Fall collection 2011

When a box full of the newest line of O.P.I. nail polish showed up a couple of weeks ago, I almost plotzed.  Really. A box full of O.P.I. nail polish on my doorstep. Yo.  Life isn’t terrible. I mean it. There are few things in life that can’t be solved by a good manicure or pedicure. Anyway, the O.P.I. Fall line is called ‘Touring America‘, and as someone who road trips quite a bit, I really appreciate the polish names….

European perfume

perfume

While we were chilling out one day next to the Palace of Culture and Science, I started browsing the back side of a kiosk.  Kiosks with cold woda gazowana {sparkling water} are everywhere.  They’re maybe what I miss most about Europe. Anyway, while I was poking around I spotted some hilarious perfume names. I like how nice this one is.  Seems a rather friendly sort, no? Depend on each other.  No, really.  DEPEND ON EACH OTHER.  You might want to…
