To Whiten or not to Whiten, that is the question

Hello.. my name is Jennifer and I love tea. 
I can go on about all the health benefits of tea, but i'm here to rant about the after effects.


I've tried those crest white strips but I'm too lazy to keep on doing them daily!
I'm thinking about getting a full teeth whitening just like Ande (seen below).  
I'm scared as hell for the after effects that I heard some people go through:
* Chemical burns from gel bleaching
* Pain
* Hot/cold sensitivity

My question for you is what type of teeth whitening products do you use/ have you used?

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm: Hibiscus

I've noticed that some of my followers are really into all natural products. So...let me introduce you to Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus.

I will admit.. I've never used any Burt's Bees lip products or a tinted lip balm before. I've stayed away from tinted lip balms because of horrible color selections!! Most are wayyy to pale for my skintone.

For the first time I have selection!! Burt's Bee offers six different shades – Hibiscus, Honeysuckle, Tiger Lily, Pink Blossom, Red Dahlia and Rose.
Our new tinted balms give you a hint of color with a soft, sweet flavor and natural ingredients that moisturize and condition your lips.
If your into quick fixes you should look into a tinted lip balm. 
While I'm at work I keep this baby right by my desk.

Have you tried a tinted lip balm before?

It's truly my dream to compose/edit a video which is full of makeup and such rich insight. Long story short, if you all don't know... half of my day job (9 to 5) is being a Director, Editor, Producer, Camera Woman and Photographer. While the other half is being a Digital Media and E-Business Specialist. Cool right.. but I love the beauty/fashion world. Making videos like this.. that's my DREAM!

One day hopefully I obtain my goal and spend my days doing something which involves makeup and fashion. sells Butter London nail polishes!!

How to Remove Shellac, Glitter and Artistic Colour Gloss Nail Polish tutorial

I love wearing nail polish... but I hate the removal. For years, I avoided polishes with serious glitter or anything with gel. Gel required extra time at the salon for removal. One salon quoted me "$15.00 for soak off removal".

Are you serious?!?
That's the cost of 5 Sally Hansen nail polishes..haha.
