I think that in today’s day and age, there are so many clothing stores out there, and so much to choose from. A lot of the stuff is the same ol same ol. So I LOVE when I happen to come across unique clothing. And that’s exactly what happened when I came across  A Touch Of Blood  . This is a cute store on Etsy that I came across on accident, and boy was I glad. The owner has some of the best original pieces of clothing, that you wont find anywhere else. Her designs tend to show off female empowerment. She likes her work to show off women being depicted as strong,powerful and in control, but at the same time being sexy,beautiful and delicate. She even says that “ She doesn't think you have to sacrifice any of these traits for another” Which is so true! And this is what her clothing is all about.

The owner's name is Cassandra is so sweet. She agreed to work with me on a review and I was so excited. We chatted up some and I found out that she has a background in art and her clothing is just more than clothing. You know how some shirts we buy off the rack are mass produced? Not at ATOB, not even close. Her clothes are wearable art, limited edition and hand made one at a time. Everything she has is hand numbered and autographed.

 The shirt she sent me to review was the “ Murderous Tee”. I honestly love this shirt. Its unique and original. Her site states that This is the first shirt in a series based on modern day vices. It is about the glamorization of violence.” I love how the girl on the front looks powerful and in control. The quality of the shirt was excellent. I ordered a large because shirts tend to ride up on me which I hate, and I was nervous that that would be the case with this one. I was so happy to see when opening up the box that the shirt was nice and long, which I LOVE. It is soooo sooo hard for me to find shirts like this. Ladies, I know you know what I am talking about. You bend over and your whole back is exposed, leaving your goodies for every one to see. Not the case with the shirt she sent me. Its longer and is actually very slimming, and I can even see myself wearing it with leggings.

 Another favorite of mine from ATOB is the “ Customizable Angel Wings Hoodie” Actually I am in love with this hoodie and I haven’t even seen it in person yet. Its simply my style. It has pink and white angel wings on it. Pink is my favorite color and I LOVE anything Angel Wings. I also found out that As a holiday bonus, you can add a custom name directly under the left chest embroidery design for no extra charge in the same pink thread. Each hoodie is custom made to order so allow time for this. You can even pick the font you want your name to be in. How cool is that. I knew you ladies would love this. Its such a hip look.Head on over to her site and check it out. Her prices are Very reasonable and you get nothing but quality clothing ! No cheap material, no raised graphics on the tee's. So stand apart from the crowd and get some designer pieces from ATOB.

First Giveaway

 Hey all,
It's a little late but I promised I would do my first giveaway. I decided to give away the:

Kymaro Sunless Tanning System:

You can check it out here:

This kit comes with :
 Kymaro Body Scrub Exfoliator

Kymaro Sunless Tanning Lotion 
 a Light Wand to check your application and make sure you didn’t miss any spots.

Now that winters here your tan doesn't have to go away. 

I have been tanning lately at the salon so I actually haven't personally tried this. I did read many reviews online about it and I read some pretty good comments about it. 

The site says that:


Kymaro’s sunless tanning technology is revolutionizing the sunless industry!Kymaro’s sunless tanning system uses a 3 part system, to achieve a perfect sunless tan!

Kymaro’s Body Scrub has a dual exfoliating and conditioning action. The natural exfoliating beads gently buffs dead skin away while the soothing and moisturizing properties of plant extracts reveal satiny-soft skin. Kymaro’s Sunless Lotion is a dye free formula, made from maximum strength plant sources that provide a perfect and long lasting tan. Walnut extract provides a beautiful and natural color tone, Rose Hip oil strengthens, moisturizes and stimulates dry and sensitive skin, while Green Tea Leaf extracts supplies antioxidants and rejuvenate your skin. 

Kymaro’s Sunless lotion also contains Retinol (anti-aging properties) which have been known to restore the effects of aging and environmental factors leaving you looking and feeling younger.Other sunless tanning products leave uneven, orange streaks due to improper application. Manufactures have tried to solve this problem by adding messy makeup and tan colored dyes that just rub off on your clothes, and can stain furniture and bedding.Kymaro™ had a different idea!

Kymaro’s sunless tanning system eliminates all sunless tanning mistakes! Say goodbye to those other messy and expensive products and say hello to Kymaro’s sunless tanning system. World class spas use this product and charge over $100 a treatment. Other professional sunless tanning salons charge anywhere from $20-$30 a treatment Kymaro’s sunless tanning system, gives you a months supply for only $19.95.

                                                    Now for the rules:

1) You must be following my Blog Publicly via GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT.
Please leave a comment with the name you follow by and your email address, so I can contact you if you win.Also in the same comment tell me why you want to win this, and have you used sunless tanner before?  This is ONLY open to those living in the USA. ( Sorry for my other readers..Still LOVE YA =)

I am going to keep this open until Jan 5th. So for a month, since its my first giveaway. So tell your friends and help me gain some new followers.. <3 yas

My favorite products Part 1 & Review

So we all have that go to product that we just can't live without right? Mine is Crest White Strips.
 I Have been using them for years. And I can honestly say that they work. My Teeth are WHITE! They have all different levels now, where you can even get 2 hour whitening strips. I use the original ones. They are the cheapest and although they take more time, I find that they work great. I have used the 3d White and the Advanced Vivid and they work great as well. I get compliments on my teeth all the time about how white they are. I hate to admit but I smoke and you could NEVER tell by looking at my teeth. I pop a white strip in when I am getting ready doing my makeup in the morning, or sometimes even when I am tanning.  The original ones are guaranteed to give you whiter teeth in just two weeks. The advanced Crest 3D White Whitestrips Advanced Vivid, you will start seeing results after 3 days, which IS ALSO TRUE.
I did my first kit about 5 years ago where I did them every day for two weeks. Now since I did that, I just Maintain and buy a box and just slap one on whenever I want a touch up. 
I have to mention that some people do notice sensitivity with their teeth after using them. For me that is not the case, but I do know people that this has happened to, so just a heads up if your extra sensitive.
Wanna see what you would look like with a whiter brighter smile? Head on over to :


It lets you upload a picture of you and shows you what you would look like if you used Crest White strips. Pretty cool.
 Have you girls used these before? What do you think>?
Heres a picture of me. Note the quality isn't great on my camera, so they don't look as white as they could, and I don't have any before pictures since I have used them for so long lol..

I also love that afterwards you don't have that " After TAN Smell" that some lotions tend to leave you with. The tanning beds I have been using aren't the Highest Powered ones in Town and using this lotion has really helped to make my color last longer, and give me the color that I need.

Did I mention that the bottle is adorable?? I know that you cant judge a book by its cover LoL.I know what they say, but with this lotion " Looks definitely were not deceiving" 

Here is a little info about the actual product:

Review -Misikko Hana Shine Shield

Hello girls,
I decided to do my first review. This is not a product that the company sent me to review. In fact I won it from a great Blog giveaway ! Anyway..Since I LOVE hair products, I was very excited to try this. Want to know what I think?

HANA Shine Shield Thermal Protectant

Well..First day I tried it I really didn't put much effort forth..
In fact I was in a rush and after I showered I put some in my hair..Then got distracted and ran around house cleaning up and stuff..I finally blow dried my hair like half hour later and really wasn't impressed..My hair did feel silky..But TOO Silky..So I knew that I really hadn't done it right..I was experimenting..and Now I know I used to much...
Did I GIVE UP?? Nope...

Few days later I was going to the Italian Feast that my hometown has every year..

Showered and started to get ready..I tried this again..This time FOLLOWING THE DIRECTIONS haha..Placed a small small sized amount in my hand.

Hardly anything..

Rubbed it together between my palms..
Flipped my head upside down and starting at the roots going down I applied it..
Then I blow dried my hair, and used my flat iron( Which isn't in the best shape..NEED A New One asap! Been trying 2 win an awesome new one, but that's besides the point..LoL)..

So ya after I finished styling my hair I came  up with the verdict..

I love it!

The trick??

 Well at least for my hair which is a shorter bob..
( Longer in front shorter in back..such as POSH SPICE's infamous hair style..)
 The trick is using such a small amount!
It didn't weigh my hair down one bit..

And I FOUND It worked amazing when I dried my hair immediately afterwards followed by the flat iron..

So this was a trial and error process for me..
But I was happy with the END results..
My camera is on the fritz and I do not have a picture to show you ..

But at the feast that night my sister came up to me and asked if I had gotten a new flat iron..( I hadn't)..
She told me my hair looked so smooth and straight..

( I naturally have straight hair but it gets a little wavy and frizzy if I don't dry it ..

So I always blow dry and run the flat iron threw my hair..
On a scale of one to ten...

I give it an 8..
I have used other products like this and the others one really weighed my hair down..and left it feeling greasy..Now I did think that this was going to be the same thing..But Nopeeee...And This will be part of my daily hair care routine from now on..

Interested in trying this out?? Head on over to

and purchase it yourself...OR..Want to try and get it for free??

There are a few sites that are having blog contests for it right now..

Hurry You only have until the twelfth to enter

Hana Shine Shield Features:
Lightweight leave-in conditioning therapy
Designed to protect and restore both hair and scalp from environmental and styling stress
Jojoba absorbs quickly without a greasy feel for thorough deep conditioning
