How to Brush Your Teeth Correctly And Why I Don’t Like My New Retainers

Back in January I went to see an American dental hygienist Elena, recommended by a friend for an American style dental clean here in Barcelona. It was a life changing or life habit changing visit!

Basically I’ve been cleaning my teeth wrong for ions. I was having gum issues that started when I began wearing my new retainers. One of my old retainers, a ‘flipper’ retainer from years ago broke about a year ago when I started rewearing them after a years break. I paid the price skipping a year with tooth movement, hence new retainers. The replacements are like clear mouth guards. Flippers are more hygienic as I could eat with them in and silva could do it’s job. The way they’re designed they don’t trap nasties or bacteria that can cause plague Continue reading “How to Brush Your Teeth Correctly And Why I Don’t Like My New Retainers”

Early Spring Sunshine

Spring’s here early and I’ve caught the cliche Spring Cleaning. Maybe it’s the change of light that’s making a few things look tired and faded or the light’s making things look different and in need of change. Whichever one, I’ve been switching and moving things around in the apartment, having a mini KonMari Method clean out and feeling change of happier energy in general. Cliche I know! Spring’s always a wake up season after a season of hibernating so maybe I’ve caught that energy and have a whole host of ideas I want to get moving.

Living in a city you don’t notice seasonal changes as much. Grey becomes a different tone of lifeless grey. Continue reading “Early Spring Sunshine”

Spring’s Here!

Happy Belated International Woman’s Day!

Spring’s here early! My winter coat’s waiting in the laundry wings to be put away until next winter (might be a little too eager saying that and jinx it) and I’m gradually switching out layers for lighter layers. Trees are getting their green on and the days are getting noticeably longer! YAY! Lighter mornings and the sun higher in the sky make a huge difference to my mood. Continue reading “Spring’s Here!”

Weekend Friday Favourites

When Mr AJ (cat) lets you snuggle up to him taking a break editing, Weekend Friday Favourites is a little late. Like 3 weeks late. He’s a cat that likes things on his terms so if you snuggle up to him, fall asleep rather than the other way round it’s an honour. His brother, Mr D takes any extra body heat he can get so he’s not too fussed if you snuggle up, which in its own way is an honour. That both trust you enough to let you snuggle up, tickle tummies while they sleep.Duck Barcelona Zoo

Weekend Friday Favourites is back after a little hiatus. I actually started this Weekend Friday Favourites 3 Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

YouTube Players

I’ve been wanting to do a YouTube favourites post for a while but haven’t been able to find a way of conveying it. I think this is because it’s mostly ‘influnencers’ and because of this it comes across full of consumerism. Occasionally they might sway me into buying something but I feel mainly as their lifestyles are completely out my budget, that I’m vegan (yep, vegans have to tell everyone in the 1st 30 seconds they’re one. Insert roll eye emoji), am trying to reduce plastic and recycling and trying to having less stuff in general keeps me in check.images

You’d think there would be a lot of animal channels seeing as how much I love animals. There are a few though I’ve noticed while I follow many of the following YouTubers on Instagram, more animal accounts pop up on my IG feed than my YouTube feed. This I’m happy about otherwise I’d be completely bombarded with look at me in my new shoes, look at my new bag! The animal recuses, animal and nature photos on IG keep in me check. I’m happy to keep Continue reading “YouTube Players”
