Dental care is an essential part of a health care routine. Brushing with standard toothpaste doesn’t always solve all of the problems you might have with your mouth. When I was offered the chance to try the OraMd Oral Hygiene Program, I couldn’t say no, especially after visiting the website, where I learned that OraMD is great for swollen gums, red gums, bleeding gums and bad breath.

I don’t have the worst breath in the world by any means, but I do worry about having smelly breath. I am a coffee drinker. I constantly have coffee breath. I couldn’t wait to try OraMd when it came. This product is different because it is liquid and antibacterial. I liked how clean my teeth felt after brushing with it. I liked that OraMD is not only toothpaste, but is also a mouthwash when added to water, and can be used in place of mints and gum. When combined with flossing, OraMD is a complete oral hygiene program.

I liked that I didn’t have to use multiple products when I used OraMD. My bathroom is teeny tiny and I loved the space saving benefit. I liked that the product works, it really made my mouth feel clean after brushing, my breath was better, despite the coffee habit. I learned that this is because bacteria were the cause. I liked the flavor, but it is very strong and intense at first! I liked that OraMD is fluoride free and contains all natural ingredients such as peppermint, spearmint and almond oils.

I don’t know that I would switch to OraMD exclusively, as it is kind of expensive at around $23 for a single bottle, which contains 400 drops. To learn more about how OraMD can help battle gum disease, please visit

About the Product:

BUY IT: OraMD Original Single Bottle is $22.97, and OraMD Extra Strength Single Bottle is $39.97. There are some promotions for multiple purchases.

WIN IT: Three (3) winners will receive a single bottle of OraMD Original. (Value: $22.97 USD)

Kristina's stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it's all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester's cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it's actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can't refuse.
Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends ... and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn't get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the ''Black Shard'', Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag. Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it's in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.

*** REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Molecule *** (CLOSED)

Today, I introduce you a fabulous company called "Molecule". They make great cargo pants and shorts! They sent me one Molecule Himalayan Hipster Pants in sunset shadow grey color ($49.99 value) for review. They allowed me to choose it. I ordered the pants in 31'' (XL) size. They also sent me two stickers of their company.

In Molecule's Himalayan Hipster Pants you’ll be as comfortable hiking the Himalayas as checking out trendy cafés in durable, stylish, hip-hugging beauties with loose-legged, airy freedom and extra pockets. Choose your adventure palette in green, or stylish solids like black and grey for wilderness or urban exploring. These hispters also have double-button waist fasteners (stylee!), a button-down pant-leg-base flap, and general style that will make folk talk.
These are a slim cut, and with a low rise, aka hipsters. They will be fairly tight on your thighs and low on your hips - if you don't like a very tight fit, please take a size larger than you usually would. These are not for plus-size figures! These are our tightest fit women's hipsters; they look awesome but please make sure you check the sizing before purchase!

As I'm losing weight, I chose these pants to wear in the near future after losing a little more weight, because I also love a little tight pants. Right now, it's very tight for me (I ordered it by knowing this), but after a few pounds, I'm sure I'll fit into it very well :) The quality is high and a good number of pockets make it very functional. You may put your wallet, mobile, identity card, etc. in them safely. The light color is also beautiful (I have a jeans in this color, too). The lower part of the leg is a bit long; if you are tall, it's ok, you don't need to do anything, but if you are middle-height like me, you have to shorten it. The thick band on the waist/hip part makes this area look slimmer. If you love such sports wear, I think you should grab it now! It's an ideal pants/trousers to wear in summer with a pair of sneakers.
PS: They sell not only women's items, but also men's items!

What Happens to

I'm an affiliate member of and I earn money from some ads I display on my blog. I recently checked the website to look at my earnings, and saw that the site is down; changed to another "paid" website called I wrote to RevenueCurve about it, but haven't got any reply. I have some earnings there that haven't been paid to me yet. I also had problems in the past to collect my money there. That's just so unethical. And I don't know what to do. But I will remove the ads from my blog right now.
Do any of you use this service and suffer from this? Please tell me what you did. Thanks!

Quick Update :)

There has been a very tired week for me. We had another gig; although we had some problems with the sound system during the soundcheck and performance, we managed to have an enjoyable time with our listeners. For the newest pictures, check our fan page here:

By the way, I'm still trying to lose weight and I'm planning to continue this for one year at least. When I weighed and measured myseldf last week, I saw that I lost 1 kg and also 1 cm each from my waist and bottom. Everyone started to notice the difference on me :) So, it makes me happy!

*** REVIEW: EdenFantasys #11 ***

This post contains links to an adult site. Please go on reading at your own discretion.

I've never mentioned about what kind of make-up I wear on the stage before, have I? Then, let me tell you about it with some great product selections from EdenFantasys. Well, first of all, foundation is a must. As I have a reddish skin, I have to use it in order to have a neutral color on my face and to look better in the pictures :) Then, I start my eye make-up; always black on the stage. But of course you will love the colorful eye-shadow palettes that EdenFantasys offer as you can see below. I put some white eye-shadow to have light on my eyes, then I use black eyeliner (I just wet my brush with the black eye-shadow and use it as liner). Then I use black eye-shadow on the upper part to have smoky eyes (but from a large angle, similar to Amy Winehouse style, but not too similar). On the bottom part, I use black eye-pencil (it can have some silvers to have a shiny look) on a thick area. Then, of course I put some black mascara; I've never used false eyelashes, but one day I can :) After I finish with the eyes, I wear lip-gloss with nude colors; I don't like dark colors and they don't fit well to my lips. EdenFantasys have really beautiful color options for these. After this is completed, I do some retouch, and I'm done! And as you can understand, I'm deeply in love with black :D

Quick Update :)

As you know, I'm still trying to lose weight. I saw that I couldn't slim and lose any weight last week. I lost 4 kg. and slimmed 8 cm in one month, but I made no progress last week :( I drink water, try to be careful what I eat and do exercise. I hope I can progress a little more this week.

I have been very busy nowadays with translation jobs, gigs and rehearsals. We are starting to record a single album soon and then we will shoot a video, God willing. You can check our last performance videos here:

The mother's day is on the way. As my mom is going to the jewelry design course, I ordered a nice book about  jewelry design methods and models. She makes very beautiful things and we put up some of them for sale. I hope I can receive the book this week and gift it to her on Monday :)

Handmade Decorative Pillows

As this is one of the most popular keywords for April towards my blog, I wanted to write a few things about it. If you love your home, you want to beautify it with decorative items such as paintings, ornaments, stickers, pillows, etc. And I know you also love handmade items, because they are usually one-of-a-kind items, and that makes you feel special.

There are hundreds of different styles, fabrics (silk, cotton, etc.) and prints / embroidery of pillows and throws such as animal, Christmas, flower, love, special days, humor, kids, girls, boys, city, etc. They can be sold with the pillow together, or just as the pillow case. For example, the mother's day is arriving, and why don't buy a beautiful decorative pillow for your mom? She will love it.

Or more adorned pillows?
