The Gorgeous Brahmin has me drooling with delight! I love the metallic silver and the gorgeous crocodile texture. I also love that it has two different handles in case you would rather where it over a shoulder instead of hold it.

I love this feature because my bags, no matter how big or how small, always seem to swallow them both!  The Gorgeous Brahmin also has pen loops and key holder, as well as jewelry and organizer pockets on the inside of the bag.

What I Want Right Now: GLO Teeth Whitening System

I'm obsessed with beauty tech gadgets and this is my newest find, the GLO Teeth Whitening System. I drink a lot of tea and red wine is my choice when it comes to alcohol so my teeth get stained pretty easily. Once a year I will buy Crest Whitestrips to get my teeth glowing again in no time, but I have a hard time spending $50 on it! I want a tool I can use over and over for years to come, save me money, and something that of course works!

The GLO Teeth Whitening system is a designed to do just that! This efficient kit gives you dentist office results safely at home and up to 8 shade changes, with an average of 5 shades changes in only 5 days! The kit also claims that it can whiten without causing sensitivity, which is the biggest selling point for me. My teeth are sensitive anyway, so much that I use Sensodyne toothpaste on a regular basis, even when not whitening my teeth! Reviews from customers say that it does indeed not cause teeth sensitivity but there have been reports of the GLO Teeth Whitening System causing some lip and gum sensitivity. All in all, the system gets an average of 4 out of 5 stars on it's reviews, including an 2012 Edison Award Nominee.

So how does this gadget work exactly? Well when used with the GLO Brilliant Whitening Gels and Whitening Mouthpiece, it uses light optics technology and heat to give you a longer -lasting, and faster result then traditional at home whitening kits.

Sephora sells the GLO Whitening System kit, which includes the system, mouthpiece, gels, lip care, and travel bag for $275. This gadget is certainly an investment piece but if you use white strips often, the GLO system will pay for itself in no time.

BelleCore Body Buffer Review

Have some unwanted cellulite you would love to get rid of, yeah who doesn't?! What if I told you it was easy as a 10 minute massage twice a day? Well...its your lucky day, because BelleCore has created a Body Buffer used on the skin to "buff" out that cellulite used twice a day for only 5-10 minutes and IT WORKS!

Here's a quick lesson on cellulite and why massaging the skin works. Fat is stored under the skin in dermal bridges. When these bridges begin to stiffen and lose elasticity, fat cells begin to swell and bulge.. which is known as cellulite.

BelleCore's Body Buffer uses a massaging oscillating motion that helps stretch those bridges, improving elasticity, collagen, which in turn reduces cellulite. The massaging action as any massage therapist can tell you, increases blood flow and lymphatic drainage, then enhancing the body's natural detoxification process. This action causes these fatty tissues to shrink, resulting in smoother, softer skin.

I was lucky enough to get a hold of one of these innovative devices and try it out for myself for the last month and a half. I had heard a lot of good things about BelleCore's Body Buffer, but like anyone, was a bit skeptical to see if it worked. I took some before pictures of both of my thighs, where I have cellulite so I could see the results when finished with the testing of this product.

Here is my left thigh, where I have noticeable cellulite:

A picture of my Right thigh before treatment:

The first time I picked up the body buffer and placed it on my thigh, I found it to be very relaxing. I loved the quick massage it gave to my skin.

To use the device you put firm pressure by holding down both grips of the Body Buffer to push it up against your skin firmly. It is then moved around the area with cellulite, for a period of about 5 mins each leg, twice a day, everyday. (It can also be used on other parts of your body, including stomach, arms, and butt).

After my first session, my skin was a little red but it went away with in a few minutes, but there was no pain with the Body Buffer, I liked the massaging motion and found it very relaxing.

I used this though Christmas and totally slacked out on my workouts and ate way more sweets than I should've and worried this might effect the results of the Body Buffer, but It didn't. After about a few weeks I noticed how smooth my thighs and behind felt (Thanks to the exfolliation from the cloth on the end of the Buffer and massaging motion of the body buffer- loosening up that unwanted cellulite! ) After a month I started to notice improvement. After 45 days, big improvement! But I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Here are my results:

My right thigh: Noticeable improvement! The cellulite is less pronounced and only a few dimples remain.

My left thigh:

My thighs and butt look a lot better and feel so smooth. I have been super impressed with the BelleCore Body Buffer! I feel more confident with the lack of cellulite and am actually excited for bikini season now! This tool is so incredibly easy to use, pain free, takes only 10 minutes a day, and works!

I also wanted to share with you some of the other benefits of using the BelleCore Body Buffer. Along with reducing cellulite and smoothing the skin, it helps improve muscle recover and performance, be loosening tight muscles and improving circulation.

I tested this first hand after a couple of killer leg workouts. My legs were so soar, and the Body Buffer felt amazing when I used it on my achy quadricep and outer thigh muscles. It did seem to help my soar legs recover quicker than normal as well.

Another benefit of the BelleCore Body Buffer, is that it helps reduce Edema and helps speed up recovery, by softening the tissue and helping to get rid of built up fluid and toxins.

There are many good reasons to invest in and use the BelleCore Body Buffer. I found the cellulite improvement to be all the reason I need to use this incredible tool! The smooth skin, massaging action, and improved muscle recovery were just added benefits to it!

I HIGHLY recommend the HoneyBelle Body Buffer to anyone with bothersome cellulite. This product WORKS! It only takes a small amount of time a day, feels good, smooths the skin, and will give you the results you've always wanted!

BamJamz Loungewear/Sleepwear Review

If you haven't tried bamboo pajamas, you are in for a real treat! BamJamz are pajamas made of signature premium bamboo organic stretch fabrics, designed to be the most comfortable things you will ever wear.

They come in several different tops and bottoms, including the boyfriend Tee, tank top, hoodie, tunic, terry spa top and bottoms, spa lounge pants, long pants, and leggings. Most styles come in black or gray and some also come in a few other colors, such as Orchid and Eclipse (Pink and Purple). They also offer some graphic prints for some pieces from the BamJamz collection.

I recently bought the long pants in black and boyfriend tee in Orchid, to really see if they are comfortable as they claim to be. I have bamboo sheets that are the softest most comfortable things ever so I knew bamboo was special and when I heard about these pajamas/lounge wear. I had to try them!

When I got my Bamjamz, I immediately pulled them out of the packaging to feel them. They are amazingly soft, but wait until you put them on! I will never lounge around in anything else! They are stylish, incredibly comfortable, and feel so amazing. I usually sleep in my birthday suit and was reluctant to actually sleep in these but I was pleasantly surprised when I did. They feel so natural, I didn't feel like I even had them on as I slept. I don't like to wear cotton to bed because it pulls and gets stuck under me as I move around in my sleep, but the Bamjamz move right along with you and don't pull. I didn't even notice they were there all night. Ive been wearing them around the house all weekend, and have absolutely fallen in love with these incredible pajamas. They are never constricting, but are super soft and feel so luxurious. I also love the style and think they look so cute as well!

Bamjamz are incredibly practical and can be washed and thrown in the dryer (on low, although don't hang dry them!) I also found them to be true to fit, and the stretch fabric is perfect for giving you that great shape. They are also designed to keep you fresh, dry, and cool when its warm, and warm when its cold. I have noticed from wearing them this weekend that they do help keep me warm. I was worried the T shirt wouldn't be enough to keep me warm, and that I would need a jacket to wear around the house with my bamjamz, but I haven't needed it at all.

If you are looking for the perfect stylish, yet amazing comfortable loungewear or pajamas, then Bamjamz are for you! I promise you will not be disappointed. I don't know if I will be taking these off any time soon, even when monday morning comes! :)

To check out their great selection, check out their website at They also offer a mens collection called Guats, you can check out at Also, right now Neiman Marcus is offering an incredible deal on Bamjamz, where most of the items are more than 50% off!

Happy Shopping!
