Smile Brilliant

Teeth Whitening Products Happy 100th post! I am so excited for this milestone that I'm smiling from ear to ear. Luckily my smile is as bright as ever because I've been using Smile Brilliant. In the past I have used white strips to try to achieve a 100 megawatt smile. They were pretty good, but never gave me the results that Smile Brilliant has.

Showroom to Showroom

Our tour by one of the merchandisers at Saks 5th Ave...





For two days this week, I attended a fab fashion workshop with Berkeley College. The first day we all headed into the city and went to NES Jewelry and learned about the showroom and marketing. It was pure bliss with accessories everywhere! Next up was One Jeanswear Group that has leading brands that covers all types of fashion demographics. Many of the different workers spoke about what they specifically do and the daily roles they play in the industry. We even had the honor to listen to the CEO himself!

The second day was a blast and we spent it at Saks 5th Ave (which has always been one of my favorite places). Our fantastic tour guide, John, lead us through all 10 floors of the store and explained the reasoning for the store arrangement, the history, and some of their merchandising techniques.

Preoccupied in '99

Here is a little sneak peak of my last photoshoot where I decided to embrace my inner spirit of being a 90s baby. I rocked a high hairstyle and a comfy vintage Calvin Klein shift dress. I also found this vintage bag while thrifting with my mom to give the final touch. Have a great weekend beauties!

Glam Green Smoothie







The best way to achieve physical beauty is from the inside out. Eating the right way will not only strengthen you and provide lots of energy, but it helps tone your body, clear up skin, promote hair growth, and more. I am not a nutrition expert, but I do like to know the benefits of what I eat!









Please don't be intimidated by the green color of the smoothie if you never tried one before. If you use my favorite recipe here, you will see that the fruit overpowers the veggies and gives a sweet flavor. This is a great summer breakfast choice for a morning boost. The recipe will make about two servings so you can stash the other smoothie in the fridge for later. 










                  Ingredients:
    1 3/4 cups of almond milk
    8 medium sized strawberries
    1/2 cup of a peeled/chopped cucumber
    1 large sliced banana
    1 1/2 cups of kale with stems removed
    1 cup of spinach
    Optional: a few ice cubes








    1. Add all the ingredients to a blender at high-speed until completely blended.

    2. Chill in the fridge to your desired temperature and serve. Bon App├ętit!

    Now is the time to style a trendy-chic denim look right before the Fourth of July. We all know that denim is beyond classic and there are always multiple pieces in everyone's closet. What makes denim so special is the endless ways it has been reinvented. It is a classic throw-on essential, but if you are ready to step it up, try out the Canadian Tuxedo. This look has been reinvented with trendier features to bring your outfit from laid-back to in vogue. 

    A Canadian Tuxedo can be spiced up with a statement necklace or different washes of denim. We've seen denim jackets change throughout the seasons, but currently the cropped style is bringing a new flare. Get ready to strut this updated version!

    Visiting Cosmo




    Sorry I have been a little M.I.A. these past days. I have a totally acceptable reason though! I have been studying precollege fashion journalism at F.I.T. for the past few days. I can't even explain the amount of things I have been studying and learning.
