Brushing your teeth with a black dust like substance doesn’t exactly sound like it would promise results of whiter teeth so obviously, when I was first asked to test it out and write a review by Carbon Coco, I was more than a little skeptical about it doing exactly what it says on the tub.     But I was happily surprised when it actually worked! Now, I’m not saying my teeth were like, fifty shades lighter but there is definitely a distinct difference in brightness and they still feel as smooth as they would when you run your…

Dear Lacey, I’m about to get in the bath feeling pretty rubbish about myself… which is why I’m getting in the bath, a little self pampering is never a bad thing. You’re probably wondering why I’m feeling rubbish and it’s because sometimes, the smallest thing will happen and trigger a chain of reactions.

Think Juicy Couture meets Tumblr…

Dear Lacey, As I write this, you’re laid on my lap, half on my chest and we’re listening to The 1975 – Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You. It’s about Matty (the lead singer) having to go on tour and leave his little brother. He feels responsible for him. The same way I feel responsible for you. I try and make the best life decisions for myself so you learn from me without making the same mistakes I have. I try and be the best role model for you so that life is easier on you. I’m planning on…
