Hi Ladies,

I have some amazing Beauty products to share with you today that I have been trying out for the last few weeks. Karina Smirnoff, who most of you know from Dancing with the Stars, teamed up with LA Splash Cosmetics and brought out a great line of lipsticks and make up, The “Karina Collection”.

I love the fact that all of their products are cruelty-free and gluten-free and are made only of FDA approved, domestically purchased ingredients.

In my pictures I used the “Karina Catwalk Mascara”, the “Art-ki-tekt Waterproof slim Eyeliner” and the “Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick” in “Creme Brulee”.

I also tried the “Karina Smirnoff Liquid Lipstick” and the “Diamond Dust”, a loose pigment with very fine sparkles.

If you are a lipstick person this is a great product to have. I loved how the lipstick stays on the whole day, no smudging or coming off at all. I can use it for dancing and performing or for every day. It is perfect for a girls night out or dinner in a great restaurant – no worries about lip stains on the wine glass.

I usually do use lip liner if I wear a stronger lipstick because I feel it adds definition and prevents color bleeding, but with this product I feel I can go without. The applicator make it easy to define and contour the lips and the lipstick dries in quickly without dehydrating the lips.

What is your favorite lipstick? I would love to know and hear what makes it your favorite.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day,

Survivor Eyes…

My eyebrows have always been some sort of a dilemma. They are quite thin (in the 90ies those thin eyebrows were the latest…sigh)  and nowadays I used to just shape them with an eyebrow pencil do get some more definition.

So when I got approached by Survivor Eyes to try their product, I thought maybe this would be a great product for me. I also loved the idea behind the company, Survivor Eyes has been created by a breast cancer survivor and each eyebrow kit purchase supports a charity supporting women who struggle with hair loss.

Since I am a dancer and live a quite active lifestyle, I used the Forever Brows Kit for Active Women, which is sweat proof and waterproof. It comes with 10 unique brow templates, a dual sided applicator and brow pomade cosmetic. It also comes in 3 shades to chose from. You can have soft Blonde, Brunette or Dark Brown.

I never used a stencil to shape my eyebrows before, but it was really easy and the result looked quite natural and very even.

I love this product and I love the message it sends to women who are going through a very difficult time in their lives. It helps everybody to feel beautiful and good about themselves. But it is really something everybody can use.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you are having a great week so far, I am sending you lots of positive vibes,

Easy Professional Teeth Whitening At Home


I consider myself lucky because I never had any major issues with my teeth. No braces, no invisalign, nothing major – so I never had to put much effort into them other than the regular flossing and cleaning.

The only thing I meant to do previously was to whiten my teeth. I tried everything, from Baking soda to White strips, nothing ever gave me a good or long lasting result.

So when I got approached by Smile Brilliant to review their product I was very interested to see if this would make a difference for me.

Basically you get the exact whitening system you would get at the dentist office but you can do everything from home which is so much less hassle and much more comfortable and it saves you a lot of time.

Once I got the kit sent home, my biggest worry was to get the impressions right, but then it was much easier than I thought.


I sent them back in the envelope that came with it and about a week later I had my personal fitted whitening trays and was ready to start with the process. It says that you should whiten daily and you can leave the trays on between 45 minutes to 3 hours.

It also stated that you can develop tooth sensitivity during any kind of whitening process and that this is normal and will calm down after a short while.

Lucky me – I never got any of it – only my gums were getting a little bit irritated initially. I proceeded to whiten my teeth every second day and only left the trays in for 45 minutes to make sure my gums were ok. I also used less whitening gel to make sure it only stays on my teeth and does not spill onto my gums.

I saw a difference right away at the first treatment. Over the years my teeth had to put up with my coffee habit, so I had to deal with stains that built up for a long time.

Having custom trays made a huge difference for me. I can really go about my daily life while wearing them, you can do pretty much anything while wearing them. The best time to whiten though is before bed time because you will not eat anything for the next 8 hours that could possible stain your teeth.

If you have any questions about the process, I would be more than happy to answer them. Here is an article that has 7 things you should know before buying a Smile Brighter kit or you can watch the following Smile Brilliant teeth whitening review.
