Get to know Melissa :)

Soooo ive been pretty pants last couple of months at making time to sit down and blog properly. Which meant i never got round to doing the '25 facts about me' tag, but it was something id have liked to have done.
So instead of doing it now, super duper late, i thought id sorta do something similar but call it something different haha! sneaky Melissa! Im just going to call this a 'Get to know Me' post...

1) Im 22, but i dont look it, at all! Im a squirt at 5'1 and a teeny bit... Yes the teeny bit counts! I get ID'd for Everything!

2) My natural hair colour is dark red/auburn, as a result i have pale skin & green eyes. Learning to like my natural colourings and embracing it instead of changing it... and im nearly there, im just trying to start a love affair with my freckles now as we are not in a good place yet.

3) I really hate spiders & Injections, yuck! Not just a 'yeah there not nice' sorta thing... i actually hate them. They make me go cold and goose-bumpy. And injections make me faint, my last one i passed out so i had to sit in a little room for a while and my sister was grumpy because i made her miss her fave TV Show! Some proper sympathy there guys!

4) Things that fly, that shouldn't be able to fly, make me panic. Im a wreck waiting in airports seeing huge mahoosive planes taking off... once im on there i try to pretend im on the bus and then im not to bad. I also judge everyone getting on the plane, its really bad, and makes me feel like an awful person but i get so suspicious and try to work out if anybody could be possibly dangerous. Low flying hot air balloons are also far to scary for my liking.

5) I love love LOVE art. Im a very crafty person too. Im always happy with a pencil and pad of paper. Starting now to get requests for sketches too! Which i find bonkers as its just my doodling? But this is a sketch of my little sister in my fave winter hat which i got from River Island a couple of years ago.

End of Crest 3D Whitening Strips!

Time for a much needed update me thinks!
Ive stopped using my crest whitening strips :( the last time i used them i was in agony for a good two hours... Its was no longer an annoying little pain when i took a deep breathe in... Its was a really horrible throbbing and my whole jaw ached. I wanted to rip my teeth out to make it go away. After a couple of hours i was ok again, and i have no lasting sensitivity, but im certainly not putting my face through that again...
So i decided against finishing the course, and will make do with the slight results ive had up to this point, or save up and have them done properly one day.
I would try the sensitive version of the strips... but if im honest im totally put off them.

Would be interested to know if anyone else thats used them has had any sort of sensitivity or pain?

Crest 3D Whitening Strips - Day 5 Strips

Soooo ive not had much chance to get to my laptop last few days, and my phone wouldnt let me put photos in my posts hmph! And then ive also been doing a day of whitening, then miss a day so i dont have really sensitive teeth.
So this is day 5! Sorry its so late! Oops!

Like i said up there ^ i have been having slight sensitivity, it doesnt last long and its not something thats unbearable, but it is really annoying for a while until it wears off. You forget and take a deep breath and the cold air catches you teeth... ouch.
But i reckon theyre working, i think they are slightly whiter and im so im hoping after ive done the whole course theyll be looking a bit brighter and prettier.
Ive also been really good and cut down massively on Tea, Pepsi & CocaCola, if i do drink it i use a straw so its a little bit better for my teeth.
Ill check back in tomorrow with day 7 
I promise :)

Crest 3D Whitening Strips - Day 3 update

So i know its been longer than three days since i started the Crest 3D Professional EffectsWhitening Strips, but after using day 2 i had reeaally sensitive teeth, i couldnt drink or bite food or breathe in without them aching... It wasnt pleasant! However they were fine after a couple of hours, but it says to wait a couple of days before using anymore if you experience any sensitivity. 
So i have done, and ive used my day 3 today instead... and my teeth are ok this time! Cant see any difference in colour, so not uploading a photo, but thought id do a quick update just to say i wouldnt recommend if you already have sensitive teeth as i imagine that would be super painful! And instead maybe try the course designed for sensitive teeth.
Ill post a day 5 update in a couple of days, and upload a photo to see if there is any difference in colour and will let you know how my teggies are feeling!

Day1 - Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips

Remember me? Ive been MIA for the last couple of weeks, really sorry!
Ive had a lot of lifey problems to deal with which i wont go into, but its left me feeling rather drained. Been a stressful couple of weeks, well months if im honest, but im a 'head in the sand' kinda girl and try to ignore everything... But naturally the world throws a spanner in the works, stops you in your tracks & everything youve pushed to one side catches up. Then the upset and feelings you should have already dealt with, hit you all at once... so its been rough, ive been pretty upset and tired and not had any get up and go to do anything.
But i dont want to ignore my blog, and im sad ive been neglecting it recently as its something i really really enjoy. So, im going to try reeaally hard to keep on top of my blog, ive got a little MonkeySocks planner on its way to help keep it organised, and then maybe this little online space can be my escape.
So on that note i thought today would be good day to start the 10 day 3D White Professional Effects Whitening Treatment by Crest.
Ive wanted to try these for a while, but just havent made time to do it, and im not to fussed about forking out hundreds to get them done professionally. Ive never had white teeth, dont get me wrong theyre not brown and falling out, but i certainly dont have a 'hollywood smile'.  I do look after them... i brush, floss ect... but i drink WAY to much Tea and Coca Cola. I know i know its not good, and thats why they are not as white as they could be, but im cutting down and so id like to see if i can whiten them a little bit. I dont want them to be really bright white, wouldnt like to think people will need sunglasses on when having a conversation with me, but maybe a few shades whiter so theyre nice and natural and give me a more healthy pretty smile. 
Ill probably post every couple of days to show any difference it makes, as every day would be pretty boring to read i think.
These are the strips im using...
