Hair today, gone tomorrow!

Before I start, I just wanted to acknowledge the wit in my title of this post! It made me laugh a lot!

Anyway, the sunny days keep approaching, which is the most wonderful thing in the world, however as it's becoming vest top and skirt weather, I have definitely realised that hair is a big no no! No longer can I use the excuse of having an extra layer of insulation!

The hippy look is very on trend at the moment but I'm not sure it can be pushed as far as free growing body hair unfortunately!

So, for the first time in a long time I decided to purchase some new razors! Ps. Crikey at the cost of razors these days!!! So, I opted (because I had to...) for a cheaper Boots brand that looked as though they had quality Venus elements! And they were in fact very impressive: my legs were left silky smooth! I finished off by ex-foliating with some Soap and Glory and body creaming it up- feeling smooth and smelling good too (at least for the time being!)

The Straw Diet

I am back! I think after going so long with blogging I owe an explanation to all of my fans (mum, nana and Aunty sue!) I have been on placement for forever, being an actual real life teacher! I had a Year One class and when I first found this out I was very scared: a whole class of 5 and 6 year olds that would be running around with snotty noses and wetting themselves...

Yes, Yes, Yes to all of the above, they did run around, they did have snotty noses, they did wet themselves BUT in actual fact they were all incredibly cute by the end!

Now I have the joy of being back at Uni, and after only being back a week, another dental emergency evoked! I did the best I could with a tube of anaesthetic cream and high dosage of extra strong paracetamol + ibuprofen, however not even the super dental skills of me or tabby could resolve this. I will not go into all the gory details, but it was not looking good! Only two weeks ago I was telling the children if you look after teeth they will be healthy but no no no! Even though I brush, floss, mouthwash (and the purple Listerine mouthwash too! Not just any old one!) I have been informed that my teeth are pretty rubbish thanks to genetics (And my addiction of chocolate and all things sweet!)

I have been advised to drink juice through a straw to avoid the sugar attacking my poor defenceless teeth! So I thought I could eat chocolate through a straw to avoid the sugar invasion also! There are two ways of doing this, neither of which are time effective!

 1. Keep sucking through the straw until chocolate melts itself and comes through (very unlikely to be successful!)

2. Break chocolate into lots of little pieces. By the time you get through a couple of squares the chocolate does not seem to be worth the hassle! If I could only eat chocolate (or all food for that matter) through a straw, then I would be a very streamline woman! The straw diet, could it be the next fad?
