StyleTone: Thoughts on the January Unboxing Edition ♡

When I first moved to the Netherlands, StyleTone was the first ever subscription box community I joined. I recently decided to treat myself to the New Year edition since I had previously unsubscribed from StyleTone! I'm super excited to unbox it since it contains gorgeous cruelty-free and often full-sized products. The StyleTone box contains 5 products in total which are a combination of makeup and skincare items.

This is especially true since orders are made to size, so no two pieces are the same. Alina was inspired to design garments due to a need for creati

CariPro™ Toothbrush: Review & GIVEAWAY ♡

When I was little, my teeth were one of my absolute biggest insecurities. It was only after I got braces that I really started learning about everything that truly goes into oral hygiene. From learning about which foods stained my teeth to adjusting my toothbrush at just the right angle to make sure my mouth was really as clean as it felt, I became obsessed with dental hygiene. Most people dread a trip to the dentist, but personally I never truly minded it. Of course, I was brushing my teeth daily, experimenting with various mouthwashes and trying out different toothbrushes.

Dentists had always recommended electric toothbrushes to me and I've never owned one. Instead, I opted to brush manually and later moved on to a bamboo toothbrush because I was leaning towards living a more sustainable lifestyle. Recently, my bamboo toothbrush was getting a little too old to use and coincidentally, the lovely team at Smile Brilliantgifted me with a CariPro electric toothbrush. I had never used …
