Smiles Better: Top Tips for Terrific Teeth

Taking good care of your teeth is something that you should be doing throughout your life. After all, prevention is far better than the cure. So, if you have kids, these are the kinds of habits that you will want to instill in them from a young age. And it can’t hurt to remind yourself of them even if you are an adult! So, here are a few top tips for terrific teeth that you can carry with you during your lifetime (beyond the obvious brushing and flossing advice).

Visit the Dentist as Often as Recommended

 

As well as the habits that you do yourself, visiting the dentist on a regular basis is part of any good oral health regime. Your dentist can help you to identify any problems that may occur at an early stage so you know how best to deal with them. They can also provide you with specific advice and tips that you can use. You may also find that you need to visit an orthodontist like Family Braces to get your teeth straightened. Ultimately, visiting the professionals on a regular basis can make all the difference.

 

Consider Your Diet

 

A poor diet can contribute massively to poor oral hygiene so you should investigate what you are eating. An excess of sugary drinks and snacks is never going to be a good thing, as these have been shown to speed up the process of tooth decay. A few examples of food and drink which have been shown to be kind to teeth include cheese, crackers, fresh water and milk. A lot of processed food contains more sugar than you would automatically think, so you should always look at labels and packaging before purchase.

 

Follow the One Hour Rule

 

 

The one hour rule is a good one to follow as it is a straightforward way of remembering when to brush your teeth. It takes roughly 40 minutes for your mouth to neutralise the acid caused by eating, so it is best to wait an hour after eating to brush your teeth to be safe. If you brush your teeth too soon after eating, this can cause tiny particles of enamel to be brushed away. You can help your mouth by rinsing it out with cold water after eating.

 

Teeth, Not Tools!

 

Using your teeth for anything other than eating is a disaster waiting to happen. Using them as a bottle opener is a common party trick, but it is actually one which could prove to be very dangerous for your mouth. Even biting open softer packaging can prove to be problematic. If you do happen to cause any damage to your teeth in any way, you should take a trip to the emergency dentist at the earliest possible opportunity.

Following these four pieces of advice can really help you out when it comes to your long-term dental health. After all, you only get one set of teeth (well, two if you are a kid!) so you need to look after them properly.

Creative Crafting: Making The Most Of Your Glue Gun

Every crafter has a glue gun in their art cupboard. A glue gun, along with paper, cardboard, scissors, pencils, buttons, craft paper, and paint, is seen as being a basic crafting tool, and one that no crafter should be without. For the most part, glue guns are used to secure bits and bobs onto craft projects, but there’s a lot more that you can do with your glue gun – you can use the glue itself to create amazing craft projects.

 

Here are some ways that you can get creative with your glue gun and use hot glue as the main part of a craft project…

 

 

Create a hot glue pendant

 

What you will need:

 

  • Glue gun
  • Flat piece of plastic
  • Marker pen
  • Gems, glitter, and other embellishments
  • Chain

 

What to do:

 

  • Start by drawing the pendant shape that you want to create onto the piece of plastic with your marker pen. Shapes like hearts, stars, and diamonds tend to work well.
  • Head up your glue gun, ensuring that you are using good quality glue sticks, such as the ones offered by Glue Guns Direct. If you’d prefer to use colored glue for your pendant, invest in colored glue sticks instead.
  • Use the glue gun to follow the lines of outline you have drawn, and then fill in the overall shape. Let the first layer dry, and then repeat. Do this until you are happy with the shape.
  • Halfway through the shape design, drop the bottom of a chain into the top of the pendant and then glue over it with glue.
  • To add a little jazz to the look, you can add embellishments to your pendants such as glitter or diamantes.
  • Once dry, peel the pendant off of the plastic and wear.

 

Design a cute, quirky coaster

 

What you will need:

 

  • Glue gun
  • Colored glue gun sticks
  • Slate coaster (square or round)

 

What to do:

 

  • Using your glue gun, outline the coaster in glue and allow to dry.
  • Next, choose the design you want to create – do you want a patterned coaster or a plain one? For a patterned one, use your glue gun to create patterns coming off of the coaster outline. For a plain one, simply fill in the center of the coaster with hot glue.
  • Once dry, peel the coaster off of the slate coaster and use. Create as many coasters as you need for your home.

 

Build a hot glue gun waterfall

 

What you will need:

 

  • Tray or dish to place waterfall in
  • Rocks
  • Dried greenery – moss, flowers, etc

 

What to do:

 

  • Place some of the rocks into the tray in a circular shape – what you want to do is create the pond at the base of the waterfall. Use hot glue to secure these in place, once you are happy with the layout.
  • At one end of the tray, create a stack of rocks, again securing them with hot glue.
  • In between the rocks, place and secure your greenery and flowers. What you want to do is create a similar look to that of a real waterfall.
  • Fill the pool at the bottom with glue – choose a clear glue stick for this. Then, using the same color glue, begin building up the glue on top of the rock stack, before bringing it down to the pool, creating a waterfall effect.
  • Leave to dry and then display in your home.

 

There you have it, a guide to making the most of your glue gun with crafts that use hot glue as the main feature.

Smooth legs with less time – #IntuitionEffect!

Smooth legs with less time – #IntuitionEffect!

 

This past week we have had two small grand boys visiting.  Two of our little wolves, as we call them.  It has been a fantastic visit and a treat to be able to spend such quality time.  With all the activity, and believe me there was lots of activity, I was lucky to have a few minutes to myself to get ready!  I was so happy to receive my new Schick Intuition razor just in time to get ready for all the fun.  #Gotitfree in exchange for my honest feedback opn the product, which is also an contest entry on 5 Minutes for Mom

 

We have been down to the river to swim. Gone up the lake road to a great beach called Lockhart Beach which is part of the Lockhart Provincial Park; swimming, fishing and throwing rocks.  Checked out Creston’s Rotary Spray Park – a couple of times in the heat wave we are having.  Gone to the toy store; walked to the library; and filled a small pool in the back yard to splash in.  Forgot to mention berry picking at our favourite U-Pick strawberries and saskatoon berries and picking up eggs at a local farm.

Any Day is a Good Day for Fishing

Fruits of Their Labour

Tucked in all the goings about, I was able to try my new Schick Intuition razor.  It was such a pleasure to use.  First, it fit really comfortably in my hand, I did not feel like I was going to drop it.  On the top there is a delicately scented lathering bar built around the razor.  You run it under water to start and then just shave.  It was fast and so smooth you couldn’t really tell there was a razor attached.  I had to feel my legs to see if it was working 😀  I am now ready for any pool side activity!

Home Sales Improve With Staging

Home Sales Improve With Staging

Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale.  The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.  Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.

Staging a home for resale is, in many ways, the opposite of interior decorating.  With staging we want to de-personalize the home, while the interior decorating we use the client’s personal items, hobbies and interests to make an interesting and comfortable decor.  If it very difficult for a homeowner to see past their possessions to the heart and bones of the home.  This is the stager’s job  to simplify the home so that the prospective purchaser can visualize their possessions there.  By staging your home you can expect it to sell two to three times faster and for at least seven to fifteen percent more money than an un-staged home taken from a recent study by Coldwell Banker).

An empty home is more difficult to sell as it is hard for people to judge sizes without some furniture o show them how theirs will fit.  A cluttered space will look much smaller than it actually is.  It is important to simplify the home, as people will focus on personal items such as photos and trophies, and therefore losing concentration on the home itself.  We don’t want anything to distract to prospective purchaser.

A stager will go through a home with a checklist of over 30 items.  Hard to believe, but true!d  Some of these items are so simple, such as improving the lighting by upping the wattage on your light bulbs to give a brighter and warmer appearance.

No longer are realtors emphasizing location, location, location, but rather staging, staging, staging!  Now is the time to get a jump on the competition by staging your home.  You have only one chance to make a great first impression!
