Tray Creation Kit: includes the Catalyst paste and Base paste with the mouth guards to create your molds. Plus instructions and a prepaid shipping envelope to send your molds back to their lab.

Steps of how to create the paste for your teeth molds. Combine the Catalyst paste and Base paste together.

Once your teeth molds are created, you will send them back in for the labs to create your actual trays.
(disclaimer: they sent me back our actual clay molds which typically isn't included, this is just for photos!)

The trays takes only a few weeks to make and they ship them to you. They're clear and fits perfectly!

In the kit, you will get tubes of teeth whitening gel and desensitizing gel. It helps when you have sensitive teeth like me! 

The trays fitted perfectly to both of our teeth with just enough space for the gels. :)

Happy Tuesday!

This post is long over-due. It has taken me about a month to put this review and post together considering on trying out the product thoroughly. Smile Brilliant had reached out to me to see if I would give their teeth whitening kit a try. They were happy to supply enough for the Hubs and I to both try it out and experience it together. :) 

The tray creation kit itself came with all the supplies to create your teeth molds. Along with instructions on how to, which is very simple and easy to follow! Once your molds are created, you simply ship them back in a prepaid shipping envelope that they've included. It goes straight to their labs where they use your molds to produce the trays! It takes only a few weeks and voila! You are ready to whiten your teeth! Now, I must note that I used to whiten my teeth with the Crest whitening strips ever since I was in high school. And I also use whitening toothpaste plus mouthwash on the daily so my teeth are pretty pearly already. But it didn't hurt to give it a try still! I actually think Smile Brilliant's process of whitening is much easier and convenient as the trays are molded to your teeth. So there wasn't any slipping (like the strips) and it'll get into every cracks! And since these are custom-fitted trays, Smile Brilliant offers them at a very decent price compared to dentists who will charge $500+ for similar product. 

As you can see on my Before and After photos (above), after using it for a few weeks.. my teeth are still pretty pearly and not a HUGE difference but I def feel that it's whitened a shade up. The Hubs said the same for him and he even slept with the trays on a few nights! I usually leave it on for only 30 mins or less depending on my mood. The trays are easy to clean and the tubes are easy to apply the gels.

Happy Tuesday!

Hask had recently sent me this care package of hair products from their Argan Oil collection. I've tried argan oil before and so far it's been great. I tend to be somewhat picky when it comes to putting products in my hair since it can create build-up (which I hate!). That makes it more difficult for me when trying out certain hair products. I am happy to say my hair hasn't done that with these! Let's go down the list! 

Price: $5.99 for 12 fl oz

I like to condition from the mid-shaft to the ends never on my actual scalp. This conditioner has been giving me smooth hair without any tangles (a huge win!). Speaking of tangles, I like combing my hair thru with the Tangle Teezer right after getting out of the shower. It doesn't damage my hair even when wet!

Price: $2.99 5/8 fl oz

To be honest, I was a tad worried about this one since like I said, my hair creates build-up. I tend to have split ends so I applied a small dime-sized amount of the alcohol-free oil and focused mainly on the ends. The oil didn't leave any residue and absorbed right away into my hair. The smell was nice. :)

Price: $5.99 for 12 fl oz

I am a shampoo girl, I seriously go thru bottle after bottle just because I like that "clean" feeling of my hair. Lather is better I've always thought! This definitely made my hair feel softer and clean enough that it's not stripping the natural good oils off my hair. Plus the smell is nice and not too overpowering! 

Price: $2.99 for 1.75 oz

With the cold winter coming, this will be a must-NEED to keep my hair from drying and frizzing out! I have yet to try just because I haven't had the right opportunity to but I will definitely give this a shot. I like to flat-iron and curl my hair every week so my hair will be thankful when it comes to this.

A huge thanks to Hask for sending me these lovely hair products! And they also have other oil collections besides Argan. Such as - Macadamia, Monoi, and Almond. :)

To learn more about Hask, you can go check out their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Necklace: c/o Lookbook Store (Similar)
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington (Here)

Happy Tuesday!

The suede trend has been going strong this Fall season and I couldn't resist this suede coat from H&M. Granted it might not be the most practical purchase due to our crazy rainy weather in Seattle. But the fit and everything about this coat just worked for me. So what I can only wear it maybe once or twice during the season? haha.. ;) The backdrop is a fav spot of mine. It's where I like to go for serenity and just listen to mother nature. It's my little "me" time. You might see it on my Snapchat once in a while when I go there. Fun fact about myself - one of my favorite smells is wood burning in the air! Can't get enough of it. Am I the only one? :)
Now onto the fun giveaway! I've partnered up with CaseApp to give one lucky She is Lovely reader the chance to win their own phone case or skin from their website. The prize value is up to $40 so you have so many choices! You can even design your own if you choose to which is what I did! Granted me and my love for marble is true, I wanted a slightly more subtle marble look for my iPhone 6. I found the marble design I liked and followed the process to upload and preview before I submit. Shipping was fast and the case itself was in a matte finish and I went with their "tough" case which is an added rubberized layer so it would keep the phone more protected!
Use the code "SHEIS20" for 20% off on your CaseApp purchase if you cannot wait! :)

All you will need to do is follow the Rafflecopter below:

 1. The four steps within the Rafflecopter are mandatory in order to be entered.
2. The next step within the Rafflecopter is non-mandatory but will give you more entries!
3. Please follow the rules and don't just click through. I will be validating your entries. :)

This giveaway is open to everyone (U.S./Canada and International)!

Good Luck!!
