Beach Bling: Metallic Tattoos

Summer is really here, and I bet you've just been on a swimming trip last holiday. It’s been really a while since I've been to the beach so last Easter Sunday together with friends we hit the beach.  The long hour drive and the fear of leaving something behind whenever on a vacation (wink …becoming forgetful), I do not bring gold or precious jewelry on trips. Have the same fear as mine? If you have, this latest trend is really a must have for your future getaway, concert or party event that you're planning to go to.  Ladies have you tried Metallic tattoos?

They're so cute, no need to worry
 about missing a piece of jewelry when
on vacation!

Oh hi Bey!

Metallic tattoos are very pretty and chic, they can be worn by itself or match it with your other fashion accessories, and they really look adorable.  They can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, ring, anklet and just anywhere! Tattoos are not just for kids anymore, I’ve seen them a lot on TV, magazines, celebrities, fashion bloggers and models. They are pretty easy to put on, just make sure you skin is free from oil or creams, remove the clear cover and position the design carefully, press with wet cloth to transfer and let design set. It can last up to a week.

You can order them online or  purchase it from your favorite accessory shops.

Well Being Wednesday: My Oil Pulling Experience

Lovely Wednesday ladies, today I’m going to share to you my Oil Pulling experience.  You know I would try almost anything especially when it comes to staying healthy, beauty regimen, product or treatments. But first, what is Oil Pulling?

Oil Pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic dental technique that involves swishing a tablespoon of oil in your mouth on an empty stomach for around 10-20 minutes. This action supposedly draws out toxins in your body. When you oil pull, you increase the production of saliva and the toxins in your saliva get trapped in the oil. This helps improve oral health and also aids overall health.

I'm using this brand, got it for $12
How to do it?
  • Pick an oil- Most people use coconut oil, because it has a strong antibacterial properties. I’m using Organic Coconut Oil.
  • Take a tablespoon of it and swish it for about 10-20 mins.  This is best done first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. Think of it as a natural mouth wash.
  • After 20 minutes, spit it out on the toilet or trash, not on the sink as it will clog your drain.
  • Swish warm water and brush as you  normally would.

I know some of you might not like the idea of swishing oil, it wasn't easy for me too on my first and second day, gag reflexes a few times, but because of the detoxifying properties and of course beauty, onward I went!  The coconut oil smells wonderful, like macaroon and sugar cookies and oil is basically tasteless, so on my fourth day I was used to it and would actually look forward to do it first thing in the morning.

It’s been two weeks my mouth did feel WAY cleaner afterward, my teeth have been less sensitive to cold too. I don’t know about the other effects, but it claims to whiten teeth, strengthen gums/teeth, prevents cavities & gingivitis,  general body detox, helps get rid of acne and other skin care issues and even helps cure hangover. Love it or hate it, but ladies it’s a thumbs up for me, a very inexpensive way to get rid of body toxins and bacteria in your mouth.

What’s your crazy morning routine? Smile ladies, let me know if you’re willing to try Oil Pulling.
