Carbon Coco Charcoal Teeth Whitener!

Hi guys!

Today I am bringing you a product that I absolutely love! Its the activated charcoal teeth whitener by Carbon Coco. Carbon Coco is an Australian oral health company. I was sent the Ultimate Carbon Teeth Whitening kit which includes the activated charcoal powder, the activated charcoal toothpaste and the toothbrush to use with it.
First off I absolutely thought that the charcoal powder itself would have a scent but nah it doesnt. Secondly I was worried about the taste of the charcoal. I'll say that it is similar to sodium bicarbonate but it does leave a weird aftertaste. After my inspection of everything (I am skeptical by nature) I decided to  give it a go.

I followed the steps to achieve the best results. First I wet the brush that came with the kit. This brush is the softeat toothbrush I've ever used. I'm not sure if that was a good or bad thing.

Next I dipped the brush into the charcoal. Next came the fun part. I brushed as I normally would for about three minutes.

During this I was reminded of a time when my mom used to brush our teeth with the ash from the fire hearth. She always said that it was good for our teeth. According to Carbon Coco it is an alternative to oral health care so along with my mother's  sage wisdom I am sure this charcoal product will work. Now guys, I never expected to actually enjoy seeing my teeth go black and I was like a little kid in a toy store.

After I rinsed out the charcoal I used a bit of the charcoal toothpaste. This toothpaste will help to keep your breath fresh with out and harmful chemicals or additives. It was nice! It wants overpowering like other brands of toothpaste but a mild minty spearmint, which I really liked.  It left my breath on point as the young people say. Ready to go show off my new smile and give some smooches (jk).
 Using this kit was a great experience. There were a few things I didn't really expect such as the charcoal giving an aftertaste, how much times I had to rinse to get it out AND the fact that if you're not careful you can get it EVERYWHERE and its kinda hard to get it out. But other than those things, amazing product!
I will be using Carbon Charcoal Teeth Whitener for the recommended amount of time to see if it works for me. Fingers crossed!
But wait!
There's more!
Before you go let me leave you with a pic of my reaction:

So yea people really into taking care of your teeth, if you've ever thought about using a charcoal teeth whitener go ahead and get Carbon Coco's. This product uses 100% natural ingredients so you'll be one step closer to a white smile with no nasties.

A Curvy Valentine with Keke's Budget Kloset

Guess who is back with another post? This girl! For this post I've teamed up with fellow curvy blogger Keke from Keke' Budget Kloset to bring you guys our looks for Valentine.
 Guys...I am obsessed with Keke's style. She is always so elegant and I'm still hunting for the pink skirt she wore in this post. What I love most, as a frugal girl myself, is when I find great bargains on my favorite sites and she is ah-mazing at finding bargains! So you ladies please check out my girl for budget fashion inspiration. 

Ladies, Valentines is right around the corner. If you are like me you might be wondering 'Uggh, this again?' Yes, I'm being salty because I have no Valentine but you know what? This curvy girl has never been let down by fashion! So I bring to you what I would wear IF I was celebrating. (Who am I kidding? 'Course I am!)

 Ladies listen up, don't fall asleep on Ashley Stewart! When I saw this top I had to have it! I LOVE the mosaic print. The off shoulder made it trendy but the buttons that stopped under my boobage with a nice slit made it sexy. I like when my outfit is modest and daring at the same time.

While this top is cute AF its not as curvy girl friendly as I would have liked. I bought this in a size 18 but would recommend sizing up. Only the neckline has stretch but the bust was a little snug. The back of the top is very long and would hit the floor on shorter girls (I'm 5'5"). The material is polyester and a little sheer so I would add a bandeau bra or top under for extra coverage and warmth.  

This is an absolutely gorgeous top for a Valentines date. Its also nice if you don't want to wear a dress or if you have a daytime date and you want to be more casual. I paired this with black jeans because I felt that it made the outfit look more dressy as opposed to dark denim. 

So that is it guys. Don't forget to check out Keke's post! She's absolutely gorgeous!

How Ashley Stewart (And Global Warming) Answered My Need For Fall Wear

Fall and winter are my favorite times of the year. Living in a tropical country we do not experience these changes in the seasons. It's mostly hot, hot and even hotter with some rainstorms sprinkled in so we don't parch. As a plus size babe this makes everything at least 10x hotter. This also makes wearing anything that's not 100% cotton or a cotton blend feels like its melting on me. But the thing is guys, I love knitwear, fall/winter clothing and the likes! No chance to wear fall clothing here in Turks and Caicos and I've been fervently praying for a rainy day or a cold front to blast through. Thanks to (and unfortunately) global warming my prayers were answered! We've been experiencing a rather strong and persistent cold front so I was able to bust out this gorgeous dress from Ashley Stewart.

Oooooohh isn't it gorgeous? The print and colors are gorgeous and perfect for this time of year. The dress is a heavy knit dress and hits me right on the knee so it's perfect for a cold front day and for work. I got it in a 22  and paired it with red sandals from Ashley's as well. I feel so sexy in this dress. Its so fitted, showing off my 'lil piece a shape'. Hah! Thanks to Ashley Stewart and global warming (once again unfortunately)  your girl felt like a million bucks!

Side note: As I am typing this its is rather rainy outside and I'm bummed because I'm sick and can't move and I have such a cute outfit perf for this weather. Also don't mind me, my health is more important than an ultra cute top that I'm dying (poor choice of words considering how I'm feeling) to show you. But enjoy these pictures of me when I was in good health. And if you are reading this and you live in a country where you're face hurts because its so cold, just know that someone,somewhere would love to changes places.
