HYLETE

There’s a lot of fitness apparel options on the market these days but my recent discovery is HYLETE. They’re based out in San Diego, California. HYLETE offers a line of comfortable yet fashionable fitness wear that’s designed to be sweat-wicking. I love this because I sweat SO much during my workouts!

My experience with the compression pants, tanks, shorts, and sports bra has been nothing but amazing. They are without a doubt the most comfortable training pieces. I love the how durable and lightweight the fabric is and allows me to run, jump, squat and do lunges freely.

Fitness apparel brand, HYLETE, is celebrating the holidays with a Black Friday promotion. HYLETE is offering 30% off all inline products plus free shipping on HYLETE.com with promo code BLK30, now through December 20th. Making holiday shopping easy and safe.

GLO Science Teeth Whitening

When you visit the dentist for teeth whitening treatments, there is a good chance the process will involve gel trays and light-activated devices. That is what the Glo Lit kit does but in the comfort of your own home. It’s as safe as it gets especially during a pandemic.

First, apply a thin layer of the whitening gel onto the front of your teeth, insert the mouthpiece and clamp down on it as you would on a sports mouth guard, and turn on the LED light.

The heat and LED light inside the mouthpiece “accelerate” the whitening action of the hydrogen peroxide that is contained in the gel. You will spend 32 minutes per day on a treatment.  This 32 minutes is split into four, 8-minute sessions – between each session you rinse out your mouth and mouthpieces and apply a new layer of the gel.  The mouthpiece will blink and automatically switch off after 8 minutes so you do not need a separate timer.

This device has Bluetooth connectivity to the Glo app giving you the access to customize your own whitening program. All you have to do is download the app, connect, and tap.

The Glo Lit kit is available at Sephora.com for $149.

October 2nd is World Smile Day. To celebrate, Glo Science will be offering a 20% OFF discount on their whitening kits. Use promo code: HAPPYFACE during check-out to take advantage of this offer.

Happy smiles 🙂

Dalgona Matcha

hey guys! apparently the dalgona trend has been popping up all over social media (instagram, tiktok, youtube). I finally jumped on the bandwagon and created my own. instead of making dalgona coffee I decided to make a matcha version. I got a number of people who dm’d me asking how I was able to stabilize the matcha as well as requesting for my recipe. so here we go:

DALGONA MATCHA

what you need:

  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • milk

instructions:

in a saucepan, combine sugar and water on low heat. let the sugar dissolve and you will get simple syrup.

slowly pour syrup into egg whites until smooth.

add matcha and continue mixing until you get a fluffy whipped cream texture.

pour yourself a glass of milk of your choice and top with dollops of this smooth creamy deliciousness.

enjoy your dalgona matcha 🙂
