Introducing eShakti

 

Hello beauties,

Today  I’m sharing my fabulous new dress from eShakti

It’s no secret that I love dresses but like a lot of ladies I’ve struggled at times to find the perfect dress, one that ticks all the boxes.

How many times have you fallen in love with a dress only to find yourself wishing it was longer or shorter, had a v-neck instead of a round neck, tie straps or wide straps, longer sleeves!

What if you could customise the size specifically to your measurements and tweak those finishing touches to make it your own……well thanks to eShakti you can!

The *dress I chose (and believe me when I say there were many to choose from) is a bustier style cotton midi dress in navy.

I made only minor adjustments to the dress because I really loved it the way it was!

I changed the length from ankle length to mid calf and had the straps altered to be tie up as I like the detail it adds to the dress. You can have the pockets removed, but honestly why would you!! The only alteration I made once I received the dress was to remove a bow that was stitched to the waistband, I like to wear belts with dresses so this was in the way for me.

Hubby helped me with the measurements, I would suggest asking someone to help. In the end I didn’t use my exact measurements opting instead to go by the sizing chart, I was really really impressed that the dress fit so perfectly (I was a little skeptical as how it would go because of the bustier style at the top of the dress) The quality of the dress is also exceptional!

I wore the dress out for brunch for my brothers birthday on a scorching hot Perth day. To add a little interest to the dress I added this gold rose detail belt and straw bag both found at the Salvo’s along with my ever present Valley Girl hat and Lovisa earrings!

The ordering and delivery really impressed me as well, in total I waited two and half weeks for the dress to arrive. I received an email notification to say the dress had been shipped and it was on my doorstep two days later!

You can see more success stories by taking a peak at these gorgeous ladies in their eShakti frocks, all look amazing!

I can’t fault the service or the finished product I was presented with, definitely a website I would happily buy from again and recommend to others. There is a huge range of styles to suit every occasion from formal dresses to tops and skirts and workwear.

Let me know if give eShakti a try or if you already have! I would love to hear your thoughts…

Until next time,

Smiley Miley Review

What is Smiley Miley I hear you ask?

From the name you would probably guess it has something to do with teeth, and you would of course be right!

I asked if I would like to review the *Smiley Miley Teeth Whitening Kit as part of their new campaign #becausecoffeehappens

Whilst I’m not a huge coffee drinker like I used to be ( tea is my beverage of choice nowadays) I have no doubt years of coffee drinking contributed to my smile being less than snow white.

So naturally I jumped at the chance to give the kit a go…

Let’s start by taking a look at what is included in the kit

img_2732

4 x Whitening Gel / 3 x Mouth Trays / 1 x Mini LED Light / 1 x Desensitisation Gel / Instruction Manual + Shade Guide (not shown) 

After following the instructions on molding the mouth trays to suit, I was ready to start to start my Smiley Miley journey!

Here’s what I found….

The kit itself is easy to use, with very explanatory instructions. The mouth trays whilst not terrible to wear can get a little uncomfortable. I found they didn’t mold to my teeth enough for my liking, then when you add in the mini LED light to speed up the whitening process suddenly there’s a lot of apparatus in your mouth!

I found the best way to deal with this was to keep busy, I would tidy up the house or do any other chores that need doing. I’m actually wearing the mouth trays whilst I write it this! I suggest finding something to distract yourself with for the recommended time of 15 – 20 mins with the light, followed by a further 15 – 20 mins (the TOTAL recommended time is 30 -40 mins) You can understand why I chose to keep busy!

Once you have completed the time, remove the mouth trays and give your teeth a gentle brush. Any residual sensitivity can be remedied by using the desensitisation gel, simply use the gel in the same way as the whitening gel but without the LED light.

Rinse mouth trays when your finished until the next application!

Make sure you’ve decided to use the kit at an appropriate time as it’s recommended that you not eat or drink anything with strong colour within 2 hours (tea, coffee, chocolate) and no smoking.

Here are a couple more FAQ’s from the Smiley Miley website

  • For optimal results, use twice daily for 30-40 minutes over 7 consecutive days. The blue gel (remineralisation gel) is to be used after whitening process if any sensitivity occurs.
  • There is enough gel to get 2-3, 7 day cycles. This varies slightly as some people are happy with the results after only a few days, allowing more to be kept for later. However if you wish to use it for the full 7 days there is enough there to last 2-3 cycles of that.

So to recap….

Did I see a difference, yes I did!

I must point out that due to work / family obligations I wasn’t able to use the kit twice a day for seven days so naturally I would expect that any changes will take longer to notice, but so far I’m happy and will continue to use the kit accordingly.
