Rio Beauty Teeth Whitening Kit

Teeth Whitening

Coffee is my saviour in the early hours of the morning (anytime prior to around 11am) but although it may give me a morning boost its not so great for my teeth.

I have thought about getting my teeth cosmetically whitened but the price puts me off straight away – especially when there is a risk of my teeth becoming extra sensitive!

So when I spotted this at home professional teeth whitening kit from Rio Beauty I thought I would give it a go.

Retailing at £79.99 it’s a lot cheaper than visiting a salon, plus you can sit and catch up on your favourite blogs during the treatment!

Rio Beauty Teeth Whitening Kit

It couldn’t be easier to use either: simply add the mouth guard to hot water and then wear for a short while so it forms the shape of your teeth, the place in cool water to ensure it retains its shape.

After this you apply the whitening gel from the syringe and place in your mouth. Turn on the machine to the required treatment setting and time and relax.

After my first use of this I noticed results, although slightly patchy. This is probably due to some areas being worse in staining than others. I have used this 3 times now and I am really impressed. I will definitely continue until they’ve brightened a few shades more.

I will note, however, that this kit is not to whiten your teeth if they are white already but to get rid of any staining from coffee, red wine, smoking, etc. But if you suffer staining this is brilliant!

You can find this set and more treatment sets at Rio Beauty.

Seaside Fashion Outfit

Guest Post: Seaside

Hi all, I’m Nicola. I usually blog at isayimposterista but today I’m moonlighting over here. Now, anyone who knows me will know that I am OB-SESSED with carousels, who wouldn’t be right? So when I was trying to decide on a post for Carousel Diary, I thought, hey! I’ll do a “what I’d wear to the Great British seaside” post, because when I think of the seaside, I think of carousels.

Seaside Fashion Outfit

I went for the 60s look with this Dahlia dress, and kept to the look with the satchel and the loafers. I love straw boaters, they just scream seaside to me, and I finished off the look with some blue ankle socks, cat eye sunglasses and some lovely coral lipstick. To me, a perfect sea air breathing, ice cream eating, carousel riding outfit, no?

I’ll let you in on a little secret; I actually bought this dress yesterday as a little treat to myself for finishing uni forever. Hooray! I can’t wait for it to come, maybe I’ll wear it to the seaside next time I go.

Gandys Flip Flops

Gandys Flip Flops

There sometimes comes along a company with both beautiful products and a beautiful story. Gandy’s is one of these companies – although the story doesn’t have such lovely beginnings.

Rob and Paul’s parents were killed in the 2004 Tsunami amidst terrifying circumstances. Having been to Sri Lanka and seen the devastation the Tsunami left in its wake I can only imagine how awful the situation must have been.

Rob and Paul were determined to try to find a positive end to the tragedy they experienced in 2004. They wanted to do something that would honour the spirit of their parents that would give themselves peace of mind in the process.

They came up with the goal of helping people in the developing countries they had visited whilst travelling. Specifically, they wanted to focus on children less fortunate than themselves.

The brothers decided that they would use a percentage of the profits from Gandys flip flops to build orphanages in honour of their parents. The mission of Orphans for Orphans was born.

Do you need much more of a reason to purchase a pair of these staple pieces?

Coming in a range of colours and sizes there is something for everyone! Plus the flip flops have recently been spotted on celebrities, including MIC stars. They are great quality and comfortable too, the base is thick but soft and the bold “Gandys” logo stands out.

Clarks Liberty 3

Clarks Liberty Range

When I heard that Clarks were collaborating with Liberty I couldn’t wait to see the outcome! With such a luxurious name working alongside a high street favourite the results were always going to be great weren’t they?

Clarks Liberty

The print was chosen after looking through the Liberty Art Fabrics design archives and was first designed in 1902, although not printed by Liberty until 1967. It is quite easy to tell that the print is inspired by peacock feathers and although it has a vintage feel there is definitely a modern twist, mostly provided by the style of both the shoes and bags by Clarks.

The range consists of 6 pairs of shoes/sandals and 4 bags/purses, with the print continuing throughout the range – whether it be repeated all over one of the bags or on the wedged heel of a pair of shoes.

Clarks Liberty 3

I love this “Minorca Bay” bag; it is much larger than I expected from the website photograph, which is a big plus. My handbags normally contain everything except the kitchen sink, so this bag will definitely fit my needs!

Clarks Liberty 2The quality is great; it looks and feels really luxurious and I love the bright, bold print that appears on both the front and the back.

The bag also comes with a Clarks dust bag, what a nice touch! Retailing at £59.99 I think this bag is really reasonable and an opportunity to own a part of both Liberty and Clarks heritage!

What’s your favourite from the Liberty range?

Kelly Edwards Cleanser

Kelly Edwards

Kelly Edwards are a brand that I wasn’t too familiar with until they approached me. They have a great range of skin are items suitable for all skin types. I tried out their cleanser* for a few weeks and I am very impressed!

Kelly Edwards Cleanser

I firstly love that the bottle is a pump, I find that products are so much easier to apply this way – especially with wet hands! Containing Vitamin E, Aloe Vera and Rice Bran this product is a delight to use. It is only lightly scented and not at all over powering! It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and healthy.

This product starts at a very affordable £6.50 for 50ml.

I will be stocking up on the rest of their range in the near future!

Have you tried Kelly Edwards before?
