Best Perfumes For Spring/ Summer

Best Perfumes For Spring/ Summer

From top to bottom, left to right: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 5 | 6 | 7

I stopped using perfumes the day I knew I was pregnant, since then it’s been almost three years. Now I’m back to perfume shopping again, this time with my baby and she loves to smell the difference scents too. She’s my second helper after my husband. I started introducing light and non- alcohol scents like Burberry Baby Touch to my little angel when she was about 5 months old. She was okay with it so I was used it all the time, for all seasons.

It’s a light and delicate eau de toilette for mothers and babies. Rhubarb, orange zest and mandarin blend with gentle verbena and spearmint to form the fresh top notes. The scent warms with floral heart notes of cyclamen, orange blossom, lily of the valley and jasmine. Soft moss, sweet vanilla and milk compose are the base notes of this soothing fragrance. 

A few months ago I went back to perfume shopping again so today I would like to share with you my favorite Spring/ Summer perfumes that you might want to give a try. I’ve divided them into three groups, delicious, floral, and sophisticated scents.

Improve Your Personality With Professional Teeth Whitening At Home

Improve Your Personality With Professional Teeth Whitening At Home

*This post is sponsored by Smile Brilliant.

Growing up, I don’t remember myself being in love with coffee as much as I am now. All I know is that I love Thai iced tea (Cha Yen). It is one of the most well known beverages in Thailand. It’s made from strongly brewed Ceylon tea with added food coloring to give a pastel orange color. My husband loves it so much too. Last time we went back to Thailand, we brought a lot of big packages of Thai tea back with us. We always make this drink at home every time we cook Thai food. It’s so good, I mean, it tastes and smells so amazing! The way people make it in Thailand is by mixing condensed milk and sugar with the hot tea before pouring it over ice and then topping with evaporated milk. Since I am now a gluten free and dairy free person, I use oat milk, coconut milk or soymilk instead and I top my tea with rice whipping cream and it still tastes so delicious. Well, well I have to stop talking about Thai tea and get into our business today. I forgot to mention that I developed my love for coffee since I was in college. It was part of the trend, that drinking coffee makes you look cool! I’m not kidding here. 

Do you know that having white teeth is considered to having a good personality? 

One of my personality teachers in college told us that we should all go and get our teeth whitened before our job interviews. Because no one would want to hire someone who has yellow teeth, that doesn’t look good for their business. People judge you during the first seven seconds upon your first interaction. Not only how you dress but when you starting to speak too. Having bright and white teeth makes you look more successful and appealing. A study conducted by an oral hygiene company, Oral-B, found that white teeth could make you appear five years younger and increase your attractiveness by 20 percent.

After my personality class, I had to go to the dentist and start my teeth whitening process. As I was going through the painful and lengthy process of getting my teeth whitened professionally, I couldn’t stop thinking why I got myself in this situation. After that, I never wanted to get my teeth whiten again. Since then it’s been almost eight years that I haven’t gotten my teeth whiten. My husband and I were talking about purchasing some custom teeth whitening kits so that we could both whiten our teeth at home. We were doing some research but we couldn’t find what we wanted, so we kind of forget about it.  

Last month I was contacted by a company called Smile Brilliant, wanting me to try their Custom teeth whitening system. I was hesitant at first but after looking at their website, I read some reviews and decided to give it a try. I crossed my fingers that it won’t be as bad as my last experience. 

With Smile Brilliant, you can create your system by choosing the amount of whitening gel and your sensitivity level to find the right package for you. Smile Brilliant custom-fitted teeth whitening trays are hand- crafted by their dental lab technicians (proudly made in the USA). Your package will include the following:

 Professional Lab Service

Professional dental lab will receive your impressions, create an exact mold of your teeth, and fashion a truly custom-fitted tray

Custom-fitted Teeth Whitening Trays

Exactly like your dentist would make. Finished trays include 1 upper and 1 lower tray.

2 Impression Trays

Used in combination with impression material to create mold

3 Sets of Impression Material

To make your own dental impressions (1 extra set of material in case you mess up) 

3-Way Postage 

All postage between you and the lab is covered (2-way for orders outside of United States)

Professional Teeth Whitening Gel & Desensitizing Gel (If Applicable)

Dentist-strength 22% Carbamide Peroxide in 3ml syringes (you choose quantity). Desensitizing gel included with “sensitive” packages.

After I placed an order, I received my Smile Brilliant Custom-fitted teeth whitening tray package in a few days. Their customer service is amazing. Everything along the process was very quick and professional. I felt like a dentist for a little bit when trying to make my own Impressions. It’s such a wonderful experience. My dream of being a dentist came true for 30 minutes! 🙂  

The tray creation process is very simple, I still recommend you to read the instructions that comes with the product. I love that they are very clever because they are sending extra putty in case you mess up with the process. 

Once you’ve read all the details, you can start making your dental impression by using the impression material (catalyst paste and base paste) and the plastic trays included with your package. Mix white paste and blue paste together, mix them thoroughly by continuously folding in half until it turns into a solid blue color. The mixing shouldn’t be longer than a minute because the putty will begin to harden. Place the putty into your tray, make only one tray at a time and make the upper impression first. Remove your impression once the material is firm (2 minutes 30 seconds or more). Repeat the same step with your lower impression. Do not remove your final impressions from the trays. Place both of them in the pre-paid envelope with the return card filled out and ship it back to Smile Brilliant. You will receive your custom whitening trays within 5 business days after they’ve received your impressions. Be sure you understand the instructions completely.

I’ve been using this teeth whitening system for 7 sessions now.

You can see my before – after photos here.

I don’t have any issues with sensitivity but I could feel the irritation on my gums at the beginning of the process. I’ve read that massaging coconut oil onto your gums can help ease the irritation. In my case I chose to skip a day or two instead of doing it daily. 

My first session was the shortest, 30 minutes. After the first session I added 15 more minutes per each sessions I did. The amount of time recommended for whitening gel is one to three hours per session. I use desensitizing gel immediately after each whitening session to help reduce sensitivity and prevent future staining. This process is fifteen to twenty minutes. The best time to whiten your teeth is before bed. You shouldn’t eat or drink for minimum of 30 minutes after use, that’s why before going to bed is the best time to do it.

One of the reasons that I love most about this Smile Brilliant Home teeth whitening system is the price. Smile Brilliant Products are a WAY cheaper alternative than the dentist, same process as the dentist but at a fraction of the cost, starting at $129. 

I also love that you can take this kit with you anywhere. If you’re on a road trip or a weekend vacation, you can still take the kit with you. It’s so convenient to just pop two slings and your Custom-fitted teeth whitening trays into your bag and go. 

You can read some of the TESTIMONIALS or read some more 

BENEFITS OF CUSTOM-FITTED TRAYS or you can actually watch this video to see exactly how it works step by step before you decide to purchase yours. 

I hope you find my post helpful for your future at home teeth whitening system purchase decisions. And like I mentioned above, that white teeth helps with personality and first impressions. You will look younger and more attractive with your beautiful white and bright teeth. If you’re a coffee or tea drinker and are looking for an affordable at home teeth whitening system, make sure to check out Smile Brilliant and give it a try. I can’t say enough, only you can experience and see the results by yourself.

Gingham is a fun pattern for spring so I decided to do a blog post about how to style this simple but yet beautiful fabric from a casual day look to a formal event. Using only one simple tip, changing your accessories to match with your occasion.

I’ve received this gorgeous watch from Welly Merck. It is designed for those who prefer a formal style as well as a casual style. I picked the Classic New York style, it is equipped with 36 millimeters rose gold case. The engineered white dial with a diameter of 34 millimeters reflects subtlety.  What I love about this watch is the interchangeable straps, you can change your straps to match with your look so that every day you’ll have a new look. It’s also such a great investment for your timepiece.

You can visit their website to peek at their collections. If you decided to purchase, Welly Merck has been so kind to all of us. You will receive a 20% discount on your purchase using this code “mollywm” on www.wellymerck.com

Now let’s talk about Gingham, if you don’t know what Gingham is, here I have a short description for you. Gingham is a medium-weight balanced plain-woven fabric made from dyed cotton or cotton-blend yarn. It is known for its checked patterns of white and a bold color. I picked up my Gingham off-the-shoulder dress from an H&M store. I love the puff sleeves and flounced hem design. I have picked some similar dresses for you below.

Gingham can pretty much pair with anything. Here I have created four different looks using a gingham dress and paired it with a variety of accessories, bags, jackets, and shoes. 

Bold accessories

In this look I’m showcasing this gingham dress with bold colored accessories. This fun look will be perfect for brunch.

Denim and sneakers 

You can pair your gingham dress with a denim jacket and sneakers. Adding some funky and colorful accessories will make this look a little more interesting for a lazy weekend. 

 Similar outfit details: Denim Jacket | Dress | Bracelet | Bag | Sneakers

Sweeten up with blush and gold

I bought this blush hooded jacket last year and I’ve never worn it. It’s perfect for this gingham dress. I love that when you add blush to black and white patterns, it shows the feminine side of the outfit right away. Some gold accents like this Welly Merck rose gold watch and gold bracelets will help glam out this look. Perfect for a day or night date.

Similar outfit details: Brazer | Dress | Choker | Bag | Bow Bracelet | Shoes

Formal event with classic coat 

Simple but yet sophisticated can also dress up with gingham. I coordinated my colors to limit only a few colors in this look. I stuck with black, white, and gold, to make this look not too plain or not too over the top. You can make this look to be more cultivated by choosing a bright color coat like fuchsia but try keeping everything else simple.

I hope you got some ideas to play with your gingham dress. If you would like to take a look at some more beautiful watch collections, don’t hesitate to stop by www.wellymerck.com.

Denim on Denim: Festive Style Guide

Denim on Denim: Festive Style Guide

Hello my love!

When it comes to something festive, most items that come up into our minds have to be suede, leather, fringes, lace, crochet crop top, silver jewelry, boots, crown hat, floral crown, bandana and denim shorts.  

I’m not talking about all of those festive statement pieces in this post today instead I’m going to talk about denim on denim, the style that you can dress up or down, country chic, feminine, boho or even modern chic, it will flatter you either style you choose. 

The basic rules of wearing double denim are: 

You have to mix colors and shades.

Playing with colors is very important when it comes to double denim. You don’t want your look to feel so plain unless you want to achieve a super simple look. Colors and shades help make your look feel more captivating and helps to add dimension to the whole look. I recommend picking one of your favorite pieces as your main focus, then find colors for another piece by looking for the color that’s darker or lighter only by one to two shade. For example, if you pick your black jeans as your main focus, try to find your denim top in grey or light grey. If you pick a light blue denim top as your main piece, you can pick your bottom in white or dark blue. Your look will be more polished than picking whatever pieces you have from your closet.

Know how to mix fabrics

When wearing double denim, you still want to look as stylish as you can. You don’t want to wear the same weight denim for both top and bottom. It will make your look too structured or too soft. It will make your look uninteresting or too interesting in a not so good of a way. You can wear a denim maxi dress with a denim jacket, this represents soft and structured. Stretch denim skirt matches with chambray or soft denim shirt is another perfect combination. You can even pick tie dye fabrics that have blue or darker blue shades, try to look for the shades that can represent denim. 

How to make your denim on denim look more festive? 

Lightweight & Loose fitted top

The reasons behind lightweight and loose fitted, it is to make your look more flowy and feminine. Because festive style is a part of romance culture, bringing out your feminine side without showing a lot of your skin will make you a little bit more classy in this case. Flared sleeves, off the shoulders, lace up or fringes detailing top are all good. I have picked some denim tops to help you save some time.

Destroyed Jeans

Raw cut hems, ripped and distressed jeans, can  help create a festive look effortlessly good. You can choose any style you prefer, boyfriend jeans, mom, skinny, flare, wide legs, or even shorts, all that matters is the destroyed look.
Here’s what I’ve picked for you. 

Tassel and Fringe Accessories 

To achieve the festive denim on denim look, you don’t need to use denim accessories. Sometimes less is more, you don’t want to overwhelm the overall look. You can pick accessories that have tassels or fringes or both as your accessory pieces. Beware of the colors you pick, try to go with lighter or darker shades than your outfit. But if you want your accessories to speak out, you can pick bright colors like pink, orange, red or yellow. These colors will compliment your double denim look.

 

 Shoes 

No you don’t need a pair of boots to make you look festive. Lace up sandals, espadrilles or peep toe sandals will do you justice. Try to stay with neutral colors like black, brown, nude, tan and white. If you want to add some colors to your footwear, you can go for the ones that have some embroidered flower details on them, that will add some festive souls into your double denim look. 

I hope you enjoyed my post and got some ideas on how to wear double denim in a festive way. If you’re going to a Music festival or any festive event, double denim might be a good choice for you to wear. If you do pick to wear denim on denim and use some of my tips, feel free to tag me (www.instagram.com/thevibescloset) on your Instagram post. I can’t wait to see how you pull your look together!
