Clear Braces

Not exactly a glamorous subject but having nice straight teeth is.  

It's something that I've thought about for ages.  When I was younger a lot of my friends had 'train track' braces including my sister but I never did.  My dentist never said that I needed them until I was 16 when all my friends had theirs off so I declined because I didn't want to be the only one with braces until I was like 18/19.  

I must admit I kind of regret not having them now because I would have got them free on the NHS but never mind I think at the time it was the right decision for me and a lot of my friends were not happy with the results of their NHS braces anyway.

I'm now looking into getting clear braces because they are much more attractive (if you can even call braces attractive) than the old 'train tracks' or retainers and apparently you can barely notice them.  The brand I was looking at are called Invisalign and although they are pricey I don't mind paying it if I know it's going to give a good result.

Once I have nice straight teeth I may consider getting them laser whitened but I don't know how long that lasts?  It's something I need to look into in more detail.

Does anyone have good recommendations for clear braces or teeth whitening?

  1. This method is great if you're gunning for braces that are not that disruptive. There are some types of braces that are too cumbersome for people. This method is also easier to maintain and arguably more comfortable than wire braces. But if your case is a complex one, you may opt to use the wired versions. Good luck on this upcoming journey of yours!

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here . Not only does   Esprit   do runway trends for

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too!

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
