Crest whitening strips

Hey guys :)

I had a new laptop today, a Sony Vaio, as my old one decided to s-l-o-o-o--w right down to an unbelievably annoying speed making it difficult to revise etc & seeing as it was my birthday a couple of weeks back and I've been saving my birthday money to get something I really needed, I thought why not. It's lovely & now that I'v brought it home, I've realised it's glittery & now cannot stop looking at it.

Anyway, as promised, I thought I'd do my review of Crest whitening strips.

I bought the Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid whitestrips.

"If you suffer from yellow discoloured teeth or you just want whiter teeth, then Crest 3D Whitestrips Advanced Vivid with thenew non slip strips will remove your surface tooth discoluration and you will be able to enjoy a brighter, whiter and healthier smile in the convenience of your own home."

In each box, you get 14 sealed pouches (28 strips) - 14 for your top teeth, 14 for your bottom teeth. You apply a strip to both top and bottom teeth for 30 minutes, once a day & they claim you'll begin to see results within 3 days.

I've got 7 days worth left, so I've not yet seen the full effect, however I took a picture before I started using them & I took one today - half way through the treatment..


Half way through:

As you can see, my teeth are considerably whiter than before! Before they were really quite yellow, but they are beginning to become more white! Definitely cannot wait to see the end result :)

So far, I love them! The only down side is is that they make your teeth quite sensitive - However, I bought the Colgate Sensitive Pro-Relief toothpaste for a mere £1.84 in Tesco and it has worked a treat!

I'd definitely recommend these to anyone considering undergoing a whitening treatment as they can be pretty expensive and I paid £29.99 for mine from here.

I'll be sure to do a post after the whole 14 days :)

My attempt at hair modelling

Hiya guys!
Sorry I've not posted, I've had exams & loads of stuff has been going on, so I do apologise!

A couple of weeks back, I was approached in work (Zara) by a guy asking if I'd be interested in doing hair modelling. This would include having my hair done for free, so being a student, I jumped at the opportunity!
So on Monday, off I trotted to the hairdressers situated in Cardiff.
I was there for a whole 7 hours... & there was a proper photographer and everything, so scary considering I'm not the biggest fan of having my photograph taken.

Anyway, this was the result -

Apologies for the awful quality but the photographer is going to send me the real images on a disk so I'll upload them then! I had about 200 pictures taken! So much fun, although I'm not too sure how a model does that day in day out..

I had my hair coloured 3 different colours - Copper, red copper and copper plum. It's really bright considering my hair was a dull auburn colour before. Every time I walk past a mirror I'm like "AH!" haha. He also trimmed my hair 'cause it was quite dry... & then the BIG OTT hair obviously haha. Had such a fun day!

Oh, and I have a post on Crest whitening strips coming up really soon! :)
