White Glo

White Glo are Australia’s leading teeth whitening brand and the products are now available on UK high streets. They have a range of products from at home teeth whitening kits, toothpastes developed specifically for actors and models, as well as instant whitening strips, perfect to use before going on a Valentine’s date!

I remember paying hundreds of pounds a couple of years ago having my teeth whitened and am so surprised that now you can now get such a good service from buying online or at your high street shops. No more waiting for hours in a dentist chair while other people make you keep your mouth open for ages. This is for use in your own home with easy instructions.

These dissolving whitening strips are brilliant for a quick top up before a night out. Bright Nights, no gels or creams, just dissolving strips! Wonderful to lighten up to a shade a time.

There are lots of other products in the range and these two are my favourites.

You’re on my mind so much of the time

But then that’s ok, I created you, you’re mine.

My eyes glaze over when people talk

as I drift my thoughts towards you…

It’s what happens now, it’s what you do.

For you are always here, silent in the background…

I won’t desert you though, you’re a new love I’ve found.

You know I have to be careful, not let you take over, make too much noise

I have my other loves , my family, my man, my boys

I see others online and for a moment I crave

But I come back to you, write some more and then press save

They flash at me and wink

Giving me tips on how to be, sometimes they make me think.

Fun and Fabulous Food in Alcudia

We have just come back from one of our best holidays yet! I went to Alcudia in Mallorca with my mum and the boys. It’s great because our local airport in Bournemouth is about 10 minutes away which makes travelling a breeze because we don’t have that long trek to the airport. We’ve been picking flights from here and sticking to the resorts which they fly to. In previous years we have loved going to Benalmadina which I have written about in the post 5 Fairy Facts on our hols . This year we really pushed the boat out and went all inclusive which was a first for us.

The flight was fab and I am not the best flyer. I’m OK on the outside but on the inside I am a bag of nerves and can’t wait until its over. I’ve done long hauls and it doesn’t make a jot of difference how long it is, I cant settle and certainly can’t sleep. It makes me so jealous when I see others just get on and snuggle down to have a nap. How does that happen! I wrote a poem out of shere nerves when I came back from Germany entitled My Ode to Him – My Other Half I think it’s easy to see that I was petrified and got all soppy!

Back to this holiday or I’ll fixate on the flying! We got there…perfectly safe and sound of course. We had about an hour on the transfer coach from the airport while we did various drop offs for people at different hotels. I don’t know about you but I often do the ooohhs and aaahhs at others hotels. I either hope that mine is alot better as you emerge out of the bin filled alley that it’s located in – knowing that the picture in the brochure or online probably looked amazing – or think WOW as it stands majestic overlooking the best spot on the strip.

Luckily we were in for a treat and our hotel was every bit as beautiful as I had hoped. We had two apartments next to each other and the balconies were huge. However the actual view from our balcony was even better. Have a look…

The view from our balcony.

When it came to unpacking I was in for a little surprise when I saw that my suncream had decided to leak everywhere. It was a real pain to get off everything and was the worst consistency I could of dreamt of. I wiped off everything that was inside but the bag was ruined.

 

Alcudia Mallorca Holiday
Eek! Not what I wanted to see!

The food was so good in our hotel. Look at this chocolate fountain, every child and most adults dream! Each night there was a different theme and along with staple favourites there were regional dishes on offer. The boys made the most of everything and ate and drank to their hearts content.

Alcudia Mallorca Holiday

I took so many pictures that my phone was crammed with dishes from each meal. It was all great quality and with the amount of on show cooking that was done you could see that nothing was left hanging around. I must of eaten more in the week than I normally eat in a month.

Alcudia Mallorca Holiday

My youngest came into me at 5 in the morning and said ‘mum mum, you have to see the sunrise outside!’ I got up a bit bleary eyed and this sight greeted me. I was taken back by how beautiful it was and by how it caught the attention of him. With a happy heart I went back to bed for a couple of hours and woke up when the sun was much higher up.

Alcudia Mallorca Holiday

The shows in the evening were very good and ranged from live bands to big productions of well know favourites such a Frozen. Something for everyone and a real family evening.

For me, after a hard day sitting, walking and swimming in the sun, it was time to relax with a cocktail….well I was on holiday after all.

10 Amazing Facts – you never knew you didn’t know!

I love facts and little bits of trivia, I also really love going to quiz nights if I can get a night off here and there. I only wish I had one of those whizzy minds that can retain all of the information I read or pick up. Some people have amazing brains that can just recall stuff so easily. I still put it down to mummy brain which is a huge cop-out as my youngest, little G is now 7!! So, without having to wait any further, here are 10 fun facts that I have put together from the millions out there. Fun is the word here so I don’t think we’ll be mastermind finalists at the end but hopefully there will be a smile or an “oh!” here and there:)

 

Number 1: The word ‘crisp’ starts at the back of your mouth and ends at the front… yep I can guess you’re trying it now..cool eh?

Number 2: In ancient egypt women were know to use ‘birthing bricks’ which they would squat on while in their final stages of labour.

 

10 amazing factsNumber 3: Adult feet have 250,000 sweat glands and can produce around half a pint of sweat a day. Eek!

 

 

Number 4: A sneeze travels at about 100 miles per hour.

Number 5: An Australian man put up New Zealand for sale on eBay in 2006. The bid had reached $3000 before it was taken down due to a violation of eBay’s policy.

Number 6: Chewing gum while you cut an onion will help keep you from crying…

Number 7: Gorillas burp when they are happy.

Number 8: As of September 2016 the population of the UK is 65,111,143, the USA is 324,118,787 and Australia is 24,198,500. If Facebook were a country then it would be the highest populated country in the world with over 1.6 billion active users per month.

Number 9: If you put your finger in your ear and scratch, it sounds just like Pac-Man.

 

 

Number 10: Oh! and guess what?….You can’t hum while holding your nose….can you?

Maybe not a fact but still funny to me…theres alot of strange looking veg out there but these peppers are pretty freaky!10 amazing facts
