Who doesn't Want a Whiter Brighter Smile?


I think ideally we would all want to have a natural white bright smile, for one, it can knock years off you, making your smile look brighter and fresher, and another, it can boost your confidence no end even if you don't have the perfectly straight Hollywood set of teeth.

So I've been drawn in by all those facebooks photos and reviews showing their before and after photos of how this Toothpaste AP 24 from Nu Skin can help create a whiter brighter smile without using bleach or abrasive ingredients, and I bought myself a tube or two, one for myself and a couple for other family members who wanted to give it a go.

I must admit at first I was sceptical as to whether it would work or not, but after a week of using it, my smile did appear to be brighter and fresher, my teeth feel and look like I have had a really good scale and polish at the dentist but for a fraction of the price.  Even my Husband noticed my smile was brighter, and he didn't know I was using it!  

If you have a natural milky white tone to your teeth like I do, I don't think you are going to get a truly whiter smile, but certainly an improved brighter smile, which does make them appear to be whiter, and this is down to the light reflecting particles in the toothpaste.

My other family members who have also tried it, one a heavy coffee drinker who has a bit staining from the coffee and the other a coke-a-cola drinker who has a similar problem, both have noticed improvements in their teeth over the course of a month or so.

The only negative about it, is that it's not as minty as most kinds of toothpaste, but all in all, I would recommend this,  maybe a bit pricey as far as  toothpastes go, it comes in at about £10.00, but when you think how much a scale and polish costs, then maybe it's worth it to have that just been to the dentist feel to your teeth every day.  :-)

Bank Holiday Ikea hack




If you’re looking for a quick and effective IKEA hack, to do over the long bank holiday weekend, then look no further! With some simple flat-pack building skills and a can of Rust-Oleum, the plain metal and tempered glass Ikea Vittsjö can go from mass-produced cheap to bespoke and unique in no time. 

Shimmering metallic tones give this desk a high-end edge, but if silver isn’t your thing and you’re ready to go beyond gold, why not update your desk with Rust-Oleum’s trend-setting millennial pink hue, Rose Gold Metallic. 
No one will ever guess where you got this pretty little number after this quick and easy DIY…

What you will need:
  • Rust-Oleum Rose Gold Metallic 
  • Rust-Oleum Surface Primer 
  • Ikea Vittsjö
  • Clean cloth or sponge 
Instructions:

1. Assemble the Ikea Vittsjö laptop table leaving the glass top to one side.

2. Move the metal frame out to a well-ventilated space and place on top of a large dust sheet or some old newspapers. You may want to cover the surrounding area with additional dust sheets/ newspaper to protect from spray mist.

3. Wipe the frame with a clean with a damp sponge or cloth and allow this to dry before proceeding to the next step.

4. Holding the can approximately 30cm away from the metal frame. Apply up two coats of Rust-Oleum Surface Primer, leaving at least four hours in between each coat.

5. Take your can of Rust-Oleum Rose Gold Metallic and shake thoroughly. Hold the can approximately 30cm from the surface of the frame and spray in a steady back and forth motion, slightly overlapping with each stroke. For best results whilst spraying keep the can the same distance from the surface and keep the can in motion. Apply several light coats a few minutes apart.

6. Leave to dry in a well ventilated place for 24 hours.

7. Place the glass top on the finished frame and admire your brand-new expensive desk.

Kitchen inspiration.



Well, I'm still dreaming of my ideal kitchen, (you may recall this post) and I'm still gathering ideas for when the magic happens, we have just bought a second-hand one that we are keeping in storage, and when the weather warms up a bit, we hope to get started on it, so much needs doing, I'm dreading all the mess, but hay oh.

Generally speaking, if you follow a good healthy balanced diet, drink plenty of water and take regular exercise,  then that should keep you in tip top condition, but sometimes the stresses and strains of modern day living can take its toll on the body and mind, causing all kinds of problems, from sleep disturbance, hormone imbalance and weight gain/loss, and anxiety.
