Beverly Hills Formula Total Breathe Whitening Toothpaste Mini Review

When I saw my mum yesterday she gave me this – Beverly Hills Formula toothpaste and I decided to do a little review on it as it is something that I have seen many times in the shops but been unsure whether to buy it as many toothpastes as you know will promise whiter teeth in a unimaginable time span! So when my mum brought me it I decided to give it a go and here is my little mini review on it…

lkj

The box brightly states whiter teeth in ONE MINUTE, yes that’s right ONE minute! How is this possible you ask?!?! Well if you read the back of the box it says that if you leave the toothpaste on your teeth for one minute it will be more effective once brushing, so if you’re like me and desire those pearly celebrity whites then you’ll try anything! I left it on last night for the suggested time and then brushed my teeth and obviously there is no change straight away but I’m hoping that after a week or so I’ll see some sort of results 🙂

The paste itself is not overpowering like many other brands and gives subtle minty hint to your breathe which is always good with a toothpaste unless you like the extra strong minty smell then this one probably is not the brand for you. I’ll let you know the results in a week whether there is any improvements! 🙂

Being In A Serious Relationship & How It Is Viewed Today

Okay so this is a mini rant/discussion of my view point on a subject which rears it’s ugly head from time to time and it is about the response and attitude from other people towards those in a serious relationship especially those in one at what some would call a ‘young’ age.

I am happily in a serious relationship with my partner and we are coming up to another anniversary this September and I cannot wait! but I want to discuss the amount of times people have not taken our relationship seriously or disregarded it because we are ‘young’. I am 20 this October and my partner is also twenty within a few months of my birthday. We got together when we were both 17 after knowing each other for 7 years and being best friends, we are like two peas in a pod our personalities are so similar and our senses of humor compliment each other and we enjoy each others company to say the least so it seemed ridiculous not to develop this further and now we have been in a wonderful, stable and strong relationship and we are still going strong but along the way we have both received negativity from others whether that be people the same age as us or older because some people  in today’s society do not seem to believe in the ability of a stable and long lasting relationship like they used to and now when someone says they are in a relationship the first thing people usually guess is how long it’ll last – which is sad really 😦

Me and my partner have discussed our future, we know what we both want from life and what we are aiming for and we have even discussed marriage, having children in the future and where we would like to live, we have made solid plans and despite this people today still believe that the theory of wanting a lifetime with one specific person is ridiculous or impossible but it’s not, not if you both want it and are willing to work and fight for it.
I just believe if someone says they are in a serious relationship and intend of being with that person a long time, instead of guessing how long it’ll last or who will hurt who first, congratulate them for being able to have a monogamous relationship 🙂

What I believe is this: I know he is the one for me because I couldn’t ever imagine a life where he didn’t exist, he is the reflection of me and I have thought seriously long and hard about our relationship and so has he and we both want each other for the rest of our lifetimes. Yes I may be of a young age to have found my ‘one’ but I am happy I found him so young because it means I have more of a lifetime with him, means I will have more time to learn and grow and having a serious relationship does not stop me from being able to complete ambitions or dreams in life like some people may object, it just means that I have someone to share them with and that helps to motivate me 🙂

So that is my little rant over 🙂 Hope you enjoyed.

My Third OOTD Post Ever

So this is my third outfit of the day post I have ever written, slowly but surely I am getting better and bit more confident with doing these so that’s a plus! But today I was meeting my family as they came to visit so I decided to wear some of my favourite items of clothing. Without further ado I present my third outfit of the day post ever 🙂

Image

A round about a year ago on Valentines day my partner brought me some brown skinny jeans from ASOS which I love because I think they are a really lovely shade of brown and go with pretty much anything. They are super comfy and look so nice and accentuate curves which is good, I also decided to wear my black formal fitted shirt from TU by Gok Wan which I love because it fits so nicely and I like the way that it is fitted as well and looks so formal but cute too! Sorry about the picture it was a really windy day and by the time I got home I looked awful but still wanted to share with you guys 🙂

Five Things I Won’t Miss When I Leave University Halls

So this July I am moving into our new apartment for our second year at University and to say I am excited is an understatement! Halls has been a roller coaster of crazy times, there was times when I played pranks, times when my flatmates drove me insane, times when we all argued over the cleanliness of the flat, so now it is coming to end I decided to share ten things I definitely won’t be missing! 🙂

  1. The sound of my flatmates playing their guitars at like 2am in the morning or watching a film on full volume in the early hours of the morning.
  2. The arguments over who takes the bin out because it gets left so long the person who has to take it out has to make at least two trips from our 3rd floor flat to the bins.
  3. Walking up and down three flights of stairs everyday.
  4. Not having enough space to keep my clothes or things because my room is so tiny!
  5. People stealing my food, it’ll be great to be able to go shopping for food and actually eat what I buy.

So that’s five small things I am rather looking forward to not being in halls, hope you enjoyed it 🙂

You may have seen some photos flowing around the internet of brightly dressed festival goers of all ages sporting some unique and different style trends, well Coachella is a big hit with fashion mad people as it is a place to flaunt your best outfits and what you can throw together in a creative and imaginative way.

So what were the upcoming trends at Coachella? Well many people want that carefree casual festival style and clothing such as ironic T-shirts with crazy creative slogans, long sheer skirts and bright incandescent make up with a mix match of accessories from knee high socks teamed with comfy converse to heeled studded boots and hats ranging from flat caps to beanies seem to be favourites at this years Coachella judging by the pictures and reviews you see online.

Coachella is the ultimate place to look the part and one of the best places to gather fashion inspiration from fellow attendees, but from Coachella we can learn that clothing this Summer will be bright, vibrant, innovative and definitely intense and will come in a range of patterns such as rainbow, tribal, aztec and monochrome to mention a few favourites this year, ooooh I’m excited! 😀

Make Up Academy Nail Varnish In Plum Noir Mini Review

My sister gave me this nail polish a while back and at first I was skeptical because I am not a big fan of dark colours, so I left trying it on for a while however yesterday I painted my nails in this shade. Regretfully some of my nails chipped and broke after I had been growing them for so long so it resulted in me filing them down! 😦 So in the photo they look a little short apologies in advance! But anyway I was pleasantly pleased with this nail polish, it only required two coats for maximum shine and colour which is great because I hate nail polishes where I have to apply like 10 coats just to achieve my half desired look…

Adding to the wonderful features of this little pot is the fact it dries quickly! I don’t usually trust nail varnishes that do not state they dry quickly because I presume they’ll take forever, but even though this one doesn’t state it dries quickly it actually does! Miracle! 🙂 The brush makes easy application as well and it’s a handy hand bag size for when you need it in emergencies.

Overall this was an excellent cute nail varnish that surprised me to say the least and it will give you nails that look like they’ve just been freshly picked off the plum tree 😀 well worth a shot! 🙂

Getting Involved In The $15 billion Pledge To End Polio

Okay so this is totally irrelevant to fashion but I thought I would share with you something I got involved in a while back. So a while back I saw an interesting story about a campaign to end polio around the world, for anyone who doesn’t know polio a very infectious virus which can cause paralysis in many people especially children. From 1988 there has been no recorded deaths or paralysis as a result of polio in the United Kingdom and much of the rest of the world can vouch for the same, however the reason the campaign is still ongoing is that some countries (around about 3 I think) are still regarded as high condition zones for polio and many lives are ruined and lost each year, mostly children as they are the most easily affected.

So when I did some research I found out that I could participate to help, now being a student I have hardly any money to donate so I looked for the next best big thing there was that I could do and this happened to be ‘The Worlds Biggest Commercial’ and simply all you have to do is add a photo of yourself to the ever growing gallery online and you’ll be added to the worlds biggest commercial. The great thing about this is every photo goes towards supporting and saving children from polio and even celebrities have got involved. Once you’ve added your image you will be added to the commercial and given your allocated time of appearance so you can see for yourself.

I thought this was a great way of helping and just thought I would share my experience with you guys 🙂 If you want to help or do the same just type in Google the worlds biggest commercial and it will come up! (everyone has to make the same sign with there hands).

My Journey To Become A Fashion Journalist…

So as you all know I want to be a fashion journalist rather badly, I’m not the type of girl who says it and doesn’t do my research first. Personally I have skills when it comes to researching in depth! But so a while ago I got into writing articles, I started small just writing them for my university online newspaper bearing in mind this is the first time I had ever wrote an article. Now it’s taken some time for my writing style and ability to develop but that first stepping stone of writing my first article for my University newspaper led me to writing more and more, getting good responses and views I found that I had a secret talent for writing.

I am an ambitious girl and tend to think of things I want to do or accomplish that is quite difficult and this being one of them, being a fashion journalist is a lot harder than it’s believed to be and to actually break into the industry is about as easy as smashing an ice cube with a tooth pick – Often one breaks before the other meaning that more than often the person gives up before the industry gives them a chance. But lately things have been going well, I mean there was a time when I thought ‘hmm is this going anywhere?’ but decided to hold on a little longer and after 8 months of writing articles for my University newspaper online I started to get chances to write for published magazines around my University and some amateur fashion magazines and websites which is great! I’m slowly but surely building my portfolio and give it a year and I’ll be applying for a internship and hopefully getting one somewhere fingers crossed!

So that was my little insight into how my journey is currently going, hope you enjoyed 🙂 Follow/Like/Subscribe.
