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.

The Practical Girl’s Autumn Fall Wardrobe Guide

While I live vicariously fashion through Song of Style and Chriselle Lim, I’m a leggings, trainers type of girl as my lifestyle dictates as such. I cycle everywhere, I need jackets that do up, I need a cap to stop my hair looking windswept extreme with a plait to stop tangles from the wind. While I appreciate Aimee Song’s and Chriselle Lim’s style, I get more excited when they feature casual outfit ideas or their everyday vlog dress for inspiration. I love Jessica Alba’s style for this reason too. She effortless does causal style that never looks too casual always with a bit of something extra if you get what I mean. She knows casual chic. As does Kate Hudson. All their styles have something to do with them living in California. That Cali Vibe.

So, this is my non fashionista’s kinda practical guide to how to deal with the summer to autumn fall transition wardrobe. I call Continue reading “The Practical Girl’s Autumn Fall Wardrobe Guide”
