Nifty Banana Teeth Whitening Trick

Monday, March 2, 2015

Ha! Over the weekend I read that bananas have this magical power to whiten your teeth - all naturally! Have you heard that before?

Supposedly, if you take a piece of the inside of the banana peel and gently rub onto your (dry) teeth and leave it like that for up to 8 minutes, twice a day, you will see huge results in little under 2 weeks. According to the article, the minerals in the peel like potassium, magnesium and manganese absorb into your teeth and whiten them if used regularly. Who knew?

I've got a whole bunch of bananas this morning and I'm going to try it out. Want to join in?

P.S: Life changing tip (it has to do with onion).
P.P.S: Plus, this nifty sunburn trick and this unusual beauty trick.

Go-To Uniform



What's your go-to uniform nowadays? Last week, I treated myself to a new pair of Oxfords hoping to trick the weather. It didn't work, but as soon as the snow clears, the sun comes out and the chilly air disappears, I'm going to rock my new shoes with high-waisted jeans, tucked-in chambray shirts and dapper brim fedora hats. You?

Here is how you can recreate this look:
High-waist jeans - Brim fedora - tunic - Lace-up shoes - Coat - Wrist strap for your camera - Blue geometric studs - Trinity charm necklace - Fig leaf and sage perfume - Lip shine in rose.

P.S: Go-to uniform.
P.P.S: Textured white blouses.

The Reindeer Riders




Blimey, after living in Tibet for more than a decade, photographer Hamid Sardar-Afkhami started to document the country where the majority of the population is still nomad. The people of Mongolia have an unusually close relationship with reindeers. They breed them, take care of them and ride them into the deep snowy forests to hunt for food and collect antlers they can sell. Also, their spiritual connection with animals extends beyond keeping them company, they are very attached to them. You can totally see that in these photos, can’t you? What a different world, isn’t it?

P.S: Ubuntu - I am because we are.
P.P.S: Iceland - land of giants.

Have you spotted Ikea's advice board on how to start and end each day better? Each image represents a letter and a word followed by a handy little tip!

My favourite is this one:
K is for Kiss. Studies reveal that people who kiss their partner goodbye before leaving for work live an average five years longer than people who don’t. The kiss itself is not the key factor but kissers tend to start their day with a positive attitude, which leads to a healthier lifestyle.

Lovely, isn't it? Here is more if you fancy a snoop around.

P.S: At home in Ikea :)
P.P.S: First date tips.

Spring Shoe Trend: Mules.





Have you heard? Flat mules are said to be the go-to shoes this spring! Would you wear them? I love how they are an elegant slipper and a casual sandal in one. They also seem to be perfect for an everyday spring uniform. I’m sold, you?

P.S: Real ballet shoes for the street?
P.P.S: And all things sneakers.
