Celebrate Oral Health Month with free screenings

September is the ideal time to spring clean your life, including you’re beauty habits. It’s also National Oral Health Month and the perfect excuse to pay extra attention to your smile.

Not only does a gorgeous grin light up your face but it also affects your health. Gum disease has been linked to all kinds of nasty conditions like coronary heart disease, adverse pregnancy outcomes, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes, none of which paint a pretty picture.

Taking care of your teeth can however be an expensive exercise which is why so many of us tend to put it off. Well now you don’t have to.  As sponsors of Oral Health Month, Colgate Palmolive and the South African Dental Association are offering free screenings around South Africa in mobile clinics and dental vans in major shopping centres. For a schedule of screenings go to the mobi site here.

Bird-themed gifts

If you’re anything like us, you delight in finding the perfect gifts for people. In our quest to discover the most charming housewarming, birthday and the all-important ‘To me, love me’ presents, we stumbled upon these bird-brained tokens that will brighten up any space.
They’re a modern take on an old tradition that saw guests give bluebird-themed presents because the little creatures were meant to bless the house with happiness and good luck.

We love the soft pastel colours and the personal touch that will ensure your pal thinks of you often. Which one’s your favourite?
