The Waterpik Water Flosser

May 23rd, 2016

Tooth and mouth hygiene has moved on a lot in recent times, the days when flossing meant pulling a thin piece of string through the teeth has long since past. These days, the cleverest and most hygienic way to floss is with a Water Flosser, with the Waterpik variety being one of the best on the market.

Waterpik flossers are very simple to use, but promise you healthier gums within 14 days of first using it. They are up to two times more effective than using a string floss, and can also be used even if you are wearing braces, or have crowns, implants or bridges. They also deal with the tongue – an often neglected area of the mouth, and one which can have an effect on the breath.

The flosser is super easy to use, and is quick to set up. You first fill the reservoir with water, this is on the back of the flosser and is easy to remove. You then choose the tip that you require. These include:-

  • The tongue cleaner
  • The orthodontic Tip for braces
  • Plaque seeker tip – for braces, implants and bridges
  • The classic jet tip – for everything

You then just switch it on, deciding on the pressure from two settings. The flosser will then clean the whole mouth due to 360 degree rotation of the tip – this means that even the hard to reach areas get the correct coverage. Food debris that is left in the mouth is instantly and painlessly removed and your mouth feels cleaner and fresher within a couple of minutes. As well as this, the mixture of water pressure and pulsations massages and stimulates the gums, which is why this can help you if you have problems with this are of your mouth. The below the gumline area is another much neglected area of the mouth, but the Waterpik flosser addresses this.

AmFar Gala at the Cannes Film Festival

May 23rd, 2016

Even amongst the glitz and glitter of the Cannes Film festival, the AmFar gala is very special, the most glamorous occasion of them all. The annual gala that is held by the Foundation for Aids Research has become a part of the Cannes Calendar, and, for fans of gorgeous frocks being worn by the cream of Hollywood and the world’s top models, this is total candy for the eyes.

This year all eyes were on Katy Perry. Now, I am not a fan of Katy’s style in general, can never understand how a woman so pretty can get it so wrong on so many occasions. But in a dramatic red gown from Marchesa, she looked like a Spanish dream. Yes it was a little flamenco, but the fabric and cut were stunning on Katy, and with flawless hair and make-up I was totally swept away by the sheer beauty of the whole look.

In other fashion news, there seemed to be a mass tribute for Angelina’s leg, with Jourdan Dunn, Karlie Kloss and Heidi Klum all showing off one perfect pin. For me, this was one of Heidi’s best looks in ages, the lemon shade was beautiful, and as for those jewels (Harry Winston I believe), who couldn’t be blown away with the whole ensemble.

Other favourites included Rosie Huntington Whiteley, who is fast becoming one of the best dressed ladies on the carpet. Yes, she has hit the genetic jackpot, but her choices are stylish and elegant and allow her to stand out on any red carpet. I’m also loving Kirsten Dunst, who seems to be morphing more and more into an iconic 40s film star. I love her blonde waves, exquisite suit, and those glorious shoes.

Who’s style do you admire from the AmFar Gala? Do you have a favourite frock – is it someone I’ve missed out?

Outfit post – April

May 21st, 2016

Yes, I know it is almost the end of May, but outfit posts are always something that I forget, and then suddenly remember, usually at four in the morning. So here we are looking back on the busy month of April, which started with a mini holiday, and ended with a couple of Theatre press nights.

April was a month where the weather was changeable, hence the abundance of long sleeves, dresses which still needed to be teamed with tights, and the need for jackets and my trusty Primark khaki mac, which was first seen last month and has been a fabulous buy (already worn to death, so for £15 – a total no brainer.)

Again I am shopping my wardrobe on the whole, with a few new pieces added in. I think this proves that if you buy classic and versatile pieces, you will get far more wear out of them than if you buy strictly fashion pieces.

What have you been wearing this Spring? Have you invested in any new pieces, or have you been shopping your wardrobe and recycling favourite pieces from the past?
