KEEP YOUR TEETH WHITE

Here are some tips to help maintain your pearly whites:


  • Avoid the consumption of or exposure to products that stain your teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine. If you do choose to consume beverages that stain, consider using a straw so that the liquid bypasses your front teeth.



  • Brush or rinse immediately after consuming stain-causing beverages or foods.

  • Follow good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice daily and floss at least once daily to remove plaque. Use a whitening toothpaste (once or twice a week only) to remove surface stains and prevent yellowing. Use a regular toothpaste the rest of the time.

  • Consider touch-up treatments. Depending on the whitening method used, you may need a touch-up every 6 months or after a year or two. If you smoke or drink lots of stain-causing beverages, you may need a touch up more often.

  • How to get stains off your teeth? Over-the-counter toothpastes, gels, and liquids help remove some surface stains. Many of these products contain mild abrasives, chemicals, or polishing agents. Unlike bleaches, they don't change the natural color of teeth.


  • Some people still prefer the age-old home remedy of baking soda and a toothbrush to gently whiten teeth at home. Also, some foods such as celery, apples, pears, and carrots trigger lots of saliva, which helps wash away food debris on your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum is a tooth-cleansing action and also triggers saliva. A bonus from all that saliva: It neutralizes the acid that causes tooth decay. With teeth, more saliva is better all around!

HOW TO CURL YOUR HAIR... ALSO MAKE IT LAST


1. HEALTH OF YOUR HAIR 

The health of your hair plays an important role. In fact, the more damaged and split the ends of your hair are, the harder it will be to curl your hair..



2. LESS SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER 

We all know that unwashed hair holds a style better than freshly washed hair (right?), but did you know that cutting back on the hair conditioner can also help your hair hold a curl better? 



3. GOOD DRY SHAMPOO 


On the days when you're skipping the hair wash, a little dry shampoo will do wonders in adding some volume and getting rid of any excess oil.







4. THE RIGHT TECHNIQUE - START FROM THE TOP

I always thought it made sense to clip my hair into different layers, and start curling it from the bottom up. That’s what I do when I straighten my hair, so it just seemed like the natural thing to do. But so mucheasier (and quicker) it is if you start from the top and work your way down. 


5. NEVER FORGET THE HAIR SPRAY

Always lock in your look with hair spray. And don’t forget to grab a small bottle for your purse – you’d be amazed at what a little spray can do to revitalize your curls at the end of the day!

CHRISTMAS MOOD DAY

HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE






3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
Whole milk for serving
 



1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.


2. For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.



CHRISTMAS MOVIES

Bad Santa (2003)



Elf (2003)








Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale (2010)

HOMEMADE MACARON (French Macaroon)



Original recipe makes 16 macarons:

3 egg whites

1/4 cup white sugar

1 2/3 cups confectioners' sugar

1 cup finely ground almonds

Directions

Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat.
Beat egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until whites are foamy; beat in white sugar and continue beating until egg whites are glossy, fluffy, and hold soft peaks. Sift confectioners' sugar and ground almonds in a separate bowl and quickly fold the almond mixture into the egg whites, about 30 strokes.
Spoon a small amount of batter into a plastic bag with a small corner cut off and pipe a test disk of batter, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, onto prepared baking sheet. If the disk of batter holds a peak instead of flattening immediately, gently fold the batter a few more times and retest.
When batter is mixed enough to flatten immediately into an even disk, spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a plain round tip. Pipe the batter onto the baking sheet in rounds, leaving space between the disks. Let the piped cookies stand out at room temperature until they form a hard skin on top, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 285 degrees F (140 degrees C).
Bake cookies until set but not browned, about 10 minutes; let cookies cool completely before filling.


P.S:

To measure by weight, use these amounts: 100 grams egg whites 50 grams white sugar 200 grams confectioners' sugar 110 grams ground almonds
If you do not have a sifter, you can use a blender or food processor to thoroughly mix the almonds and confectioners' sugar. Just blend or pulse for thirty seconds. Remember that because the consistency of the mix is like cake batter, you're going to have to be quick about piping it onto the silicone mat. Hold the pastry bag sideways between piping so it doesn't spill.

EASY WAYS TO QUICKLY LOSE WEIGHT

1. Eat Less Meat


That doesn’t mean you should stop eating meat at all, just cut down your servings and make sure you don’t consume it very often. Fish is a wonderful substitute for meat and it is beneficial for you. One of the reasons we should eat less meat is its high concentration of fats, growth hormones and antibiotics which affect our body negatively.

2.  Eat Fruits with Pleasure

It is a well-known fact that fruits should be on the list of foods we eat every day. They are high in nutrients and vitamins that our body needs to function well. Unfortunately, most of us give preference to junk food instead. Sometimes eating fruit can be rather boring. Why not make it fun and eat fruits with pleasure? There are lots of interesting ways to consume this food. For example, you can make some smoothie or fruit salads. You will also enjoy the perfect taste of dried fruit.


3. No Alcohol


Surely, alcohol is one of the worst things for your health. First of all, it is high in calories and it takes more time for it to be burnt in our body. In other words, alcohol is full of ethanol and fat, which can do harm to you. Nowadays it is extremely popular to do “dryathlons” to get money for charity. By doing this you will contribute greatly to your health and well-being. Besides, this is an incredible way to lose weight fast. The only thing you need is to remove alcohol from your diet as soon as possible.


4. Sleep More

When it comes to weight loss your sleep really matters. As a rule, those people who sleep little tend to eat more because their appetite increases. It’s so difficult for me to resist a temptation to consume my favorite foods when I suffer from insomnia. I usually put on weight and it results in my frustration. To avoid this it’s better to go to bed earlier. Don’t spend so much time awake, sleep more.


5. Make your own meals

I think that the food you cook yourself is the best for you. For many young girls cooking may be problematic as they don’t have much experience. When they have nothing to eat at home they consume fast food excessively. Due to this fact they often put on weight. Make it a rule to cook food yourself and you will find out how tasty and healthy it can be. Asian cuisine will be a fantastic choice for you! If you try it once you will never turn back to junk food.


6. Ditch Sugar

It would be nice if you minimized your daily consumption of sugar as it has a negative impact on your body. In addition, it is one of the reasons you put on weight. If you can’t live without sugar, it will be impossible for you to ditch it completely. That’s why you should consume it less. You can add sugar to your tea or coffee only once a day, or a chocolate bar is absolutely enough for you. Don’t eat other sweets. You don’t need to refuse from delicious desserts, just be careful with their servings.


7. Eat Consciously

It is necessary to include various foods into your eating plan. Don’t eat the same food more than one time in a day. Think of the nutrients containing in your dishes. For instance, if your breakfast is rich in carbs, you should supply your body with protein during lunch. Pay much attention to your snacks either. Choose from a great variety of fruits. In order to be slim you should listen to your body and realize what it really needs. Don’t be obsessed with calories. It is advisable to chew your food slowly. In such way, it will be easier to understand that you are no longer hungry.


8. Don’t Have Any Takeout

Do you often have takeout foods? If so, you should definitely forget about that. Some people feel relaxed because they have only one in a week. But they even don’t imagine how many calories they get with all those dishes. Another amazing way to lose weight quickly is to stop eating out. Nothing bad will happen if you stay at home for dinner. Bear in mind that with every visit to a restaurant you have more chances to gain weight.


9. Exercise for Fun

Everybody thinks that doing physical exercises requires much time and energy. You don’t even guess that it can be entertaining. Just do it for fun and you will see the difference. Opt for your favorite sport and do it regularly. No matter whether you run or walk, dance or ride a bike, the main thing is to enjoy exercise. If you like something you will certainly have a desire to do that again and again.


Do you want to lose weight in a month? Don’t be afraid, it’s not as hard as you can think. Try to change your lifestyle and you’ll be amazed with the results.
I hope that all the tips mentioned above will help you to look beautiful and slim in no time. What do you think of these ways? Have you ever tried them? What do you usually do to lose weight quickly?
