5 Foods To Avoid For Perfect Teeth

Getting perfect teeth should be easy, but it rarely is. We live in an environment today where society tells us to consume the foods and drinks most likely to stain them and cause damage. 


The trick here is to fight back by making smart choices. Hopefully, when you start making better decisions, your trips to the dentist will be more pleasant. You won’t have to undergo as many root canals. 


But which foods should you avoid? Let’s take a look. 


Potato Chips

Who would have thought potato chips would be so damaging to teeth? After all, they don’t contain any sugar.


Well, it turns out that while these crunchy snacks may be satisfying, they are not good for your teeth. That’s because they are high in starch that can get trapped between them and feed plaque bacteria. They also tend to be salty which can dehydrate you and make you thirsty for sugary drinks. 


Therefore, always brush your teeth after eating them. Stop cavities in their tracks. 


Sugary And Acidic Foods


You should also avoid sugary and acidic foods. But why? Because foods like candy, soda, and citrus fruits can create an environment in your mouth that allows harmful bacteria to grow, leading to cavities and decay.


Here’s how it works: 


  1. Bacteria break down sugar when they eat it producing acidic byproducts
  2. Acidic foods also contain acid naturally
  3. The acid then breaks down the tooth enamel
  4. Cavities begin to form


Sticky And Chewy Foods

Sticky and chewy foods like caramel, gummies, and dried fruits can also be harmful to your teeth. These foods can get stuck in between your teeth, providing a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.


Most dried fruits are pretty much safe. That’s because they contain other elements that bind with the sugar and make them easy for the saliva to sweep from the mouth. However, refined products are a massive no-no. 


Chewy foods can also stick to your teeth for an extended period, increasing the risk of tooth decay and staining. They can also damage the teeth (by pulling them out), if they are loose – not what you want. 


Hard And Crunchy Foods


Hard and crunchy foods like nuts and popcorn can also be harmful to your teeth. These foods can be tough to chew and can lead to chipped or cracked teeth. That’s one of the main reasons dentists suggest you avoid consuming them if you have dentures. 


You also want to be careful with popcorn kernels. These can get stuck in between your teeth, leading to irritation and inflammation.

What about ice? Well, if you plop it in your drink and leave it there, you shouldn’t have a problem. However, if you chew it, it can cause issues. Ice is too hard for your teeth to handle because humans rarely ate it in nature. It can also cause sensitivity issues by exposing the nerves under the enamel. Therefore, don’t chew it. Instead, sip it in water if you want to cool down, or use an alternative, like sugar-free gum. 

Why You Should Upgrade Your Thermostat

It’s so important that your home has a heating and cooling system that is up to scratch, working correctly and can adapt to the changing external temperatures around your home. Thermostats have to be efficient if you don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars fixing it every time it breaks down. Your thermostat has to be maintained properly, but even with the best of maintenance you may need to consider upgrading it from time to time.


From companies like https://smarthometechnologies.com/, you can make your thermostat a smart addition to your home, allowing you to control the heating and air conditioning from your phone in the palm of your hand. If you maintain it properly, the entire A/C unit in your home is going to serve you the best possible way. One of the main parts of this system is the control center: the thermostat. So, here’s why you should keep an eye on it and then upgrade it when you need to.

  1. Improving your energy efficiency. Sustainability is something every single homeowner should be conscious about and if you want to help your home to become more energy efficient and spend less money on your bills, then you need to have a smart thermostat. You may find it hard to remember to turn off your heat or A/C and that’s okay because a smart thermostat can be programmed to turn off when you want it to. That way, if you forget you don’t have to worry.
  2. They are super flexible. Smart thermostats allow you to turn your HVAC system on and off for the entire property, which means that if you all prefer different temperatures you can manage zones in your home. Smart thermostats allow you to choose where to isolate in your home and you can then enjoy the cool or the warm air no matter where you are!
  3. It’s controlled remotely. You can hook up your thermostat to your smartphone and have the ability to turn it on when you are on your way home from work. You can go home to a cool or a warm home depending on the time of year and you’ll enjoy that correct temperature – all with the help of an app.
  4. It’s a great way to add value to your home. The addition of a smart thermostat means that you are going to be able to replace a malfunctioning one. You will find that this is the simplest fix to your issue because you are going to have a well-functioning system and a thermostat that doesn’t collapse out on you whenever you are trying to keep your home at the right temperature.


A broken thermostat or a thermostat system that isn’t playing ball isn’t something you should ignore. It can have a much bigger impact than you think and you deserve to have a home that is working and functioning in a way that makes you feel most comfortable. Take your time to choose the right system, though!

Film Synopsis

Avatar: The Way of Water reaches new heights and explores undiscovered depths as James Cameron returns to the world of Pandora in this emotionally packed action adventure. Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, Avatar: The Way of Water launches the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. All of this against the breathtaking backdrop of Pandora, where audiences are introduced to new Na’vi cultures and a range of exotic sea creatures that populate the majestic oceans. Nominated for numerous Academy Awards® including Best Picture, the James Cameron-directed film became the third highest-grossing box office film of all-time and set a new benchmark for visual effects. Produced by Cameron and his longtime partner Jon Landau, the Lightstorm Entertainment production stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis and Kate Winslet. Joining the illustrious adult cast are talented newcomers Britain Dalton, Jamie Flatters, Trinity Jo-Li Bliss, Bailey Bass and Jack Champion.

Projects & Tasks You Should Be Tackling As A Homeowner



Being a homeowner comes with a lot of responsibility. It takes hard work, effort, and money to keep up with all that needs to be done and maintained. Given all this, it’s important that you get organized right away and then figure out a plan to ensure you stay on top of it all. 

There are some projects and tasks you should be tackling as a homeowner and not putting off for another time. When you are committed to completing the work and staying on a schedule then you’ll be on your way to transforming your home for the better and ensuring it looks more beautiful and is more welcoming. 

Budgeting & Finding Ways to Save

One project or task you should be tackling as a homeowner is to budget your money and comb through your finances in detail. It’s wise to have an emergency fund that you can dip into in case you need to access the funds quickly. Also, save up your money for renovations and other updates you may want to make in the future. You can also find ways to save at home by cutting the cable, installing energy efficient casement windows, and completing as many projects as you can on your own instead of hiring a contractor. 

Routine Maintenance & Repairs

It’s in your best interest to also make lists of what needs to get done weekly, monthly, and seasonally. Routine maintenance and making repairs are additional matters that shouldn’t be put off for too long. This way your home will be a safe and better place to live and you can ensure that your property remains in good shape year-round. Make a checklist of what needs to get done and then make sure you keep it handy and that you go through it often to confirm you’re not letting important matters slip through the cracks.  

Painting & Decorating

Another project and task you should be tackling as a homeowner is applying fresh paint to the walls and decorating your home. Paint is a cost-effective way to make your home more beautiful and modern. Consider using a neutral palette to brighten up your spaces, especially if you think you might be trying to sell your home in the near future. Refresh your home by rearranging your furniture, hanging up artwork and mirrors, and placing out decor items you love as well as plants and elements found in nature. 

Cleaning & Decluttering

Your home will be much more attractive and a better place to live when you keep on a regular cleaning schedule and routine. Be sure to also dive in and do a deep clean to your entire home and areas you often overlook once in a while or each season too. While you’re cleaning it’s also a good time to look around and see if there are items you can toss or donate that you no longer need. You’ll free up space by decluttering and you’ll likely boost your mood and reduce anxiety as there will be less clutter and chaos to manage. 

Bathroom & Kitchen Renovations

As a homeowner, it’s also in your best interest to tackle bathroom and kitchen renovations. These are very important rooms in your home and updating them will pay off in the long run and increase the value of your home. You’ll enjoy living in your property more once these projects are completed and your property will be easier to sell one day in the future too. If you don’t have the budget or capacity for full remodels of these spaces then consider smaller projects that will still make an impact and help you transform these rooms for the better. For example, you can paint cabinets and vanities, switch out the hardware, and install new and better lighting. 

Curb Appeal & Landscaping

You also will want to pay attention to the outside and exterior of your home as a homeowner. Work on boosting the curb appeal and sprucing up the landscaping for a more updated and attractive look and feel. There are many outdoor projects you may want to tackle to boost your curb appeal such as decorating your front porch, painting your front door, installing a new garage door, and putting in a different mailbox. Now is also a good time to check out your roof and make sure there is no need to repair or replace it as well. Your home will be more appealing and impressive to passersby and guests when you focus your energy on improving the curb appeal and working on updating the overall exterior of your property. 

12 Tips On Revamping Your Living Room


Image Credit

Revamping your living room can be a daunting task, but with the right tips and tricks, it can also be an enjoyable and exciting project. Whether you’re looking to update the space to reflect your personal style or you simply want to give it a fresh new look, there are a variety of ways to achieve a beautiful and functional living room. In this article, we’ll explore some of the best tips for revamping your living room, from choosing the right color scheme to creating a comfortable seating area.

1.  Choose a Color Scheme

One of the easiest ways to give your living room a new look is to update the color scheme. Choose a color palette that reflects your personal style and complements the rest of your home’s decor. If you’re unsure where to start, consider using a neutral color as the base and adding pops of color with accessories like pillows, throws, and artwork.

2.  Add Texture

Texture can add depth and interest to any space, and the living room is no exception. Incorporate texture through textiles like area rugs, throw blankets, and curtains, as well as with decor items like plants, baskets, and decorative pillows.

3.  Declutter and Organize

Before you begin revamping your living room, take some time to declutter and organize the space. Remove any items that no longer serve a purpose or that you no longer love, and find storage solutions for items that you want to keep but that don’t need to be on display.

4.  Upgrade Your Lighting

Lighting can have a big impact on the look and feel of your living room. Consider adding a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Floor lamps, table lamps, and pendant lights are all great options for adding both style and function to your living room. If you feel you need to replace your windows to let in more natural light, get in touch with Southside Window to get a quote.

5.  Rearrange Furniture

If you’re on a tight budget, rearranging your existing furniture can give your living room a whole new look without spending a dime. Experiment with different furniture layouts until you find one that maximizes the space and creates a comfortable seating area.

6.  Add Artwork and Decor

Artwork and decor can add personality and style to your living room. Consider hanging a gallery wall of your favorite photos or artwork, or adding a statement piece like a large piece of wall art or a unique sculpture. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles and textures to create a layered and eclectic look.

7.  Invest in Quality Seating

Investing in quality seating is a must for any living room revamp. Choose a comfortable sofa or sectional that fits the scale of the room, and add accent chairs or a chaise lounge for additional seating options. Don’t forget to add plenty of throw pillows and blankets to create a cozy and inviting space.

8.  Incorporate Natural Elements

Bringing the outdoors inside can add a sense of calm and tranquility to your living room. Consider incorporating natural elements like plants, flowers, and wood accents to create a relaxing and welcoming space.

9.  Layer Your Rugs

Layering rugs is a great way to add texture and interest to your living room. Start with a larger, neutral rug as the base and add a smaller, patterned rug on top for a pop of color and pattern.

10.  Create a Focal Point

Creating a focal point is key to any successful living room design. Choose a statement piece like a fireplace, large piece of artwork, or statement lighting fixture, and arrange the furniture around it to create a cozy and inviting seating area.

11.  Choose Versatile Furniture 

When revamping your living room, consider investing in versatile furniture pieces that can serve multiple functions. For example, an ottoman can be used as a coffee table, extra seating, or as a footrest. A sofa bed can serve as a comfortable place for guests to sleep when needed, while also functioning as a regular sofa during the day.

12. Add Smart Storage 

Smart storage solutions can help keep your living room organized and clutter-free. Consider adding built-in shelves, cabinets, or a storage ottoman to store books, magazines, and other items that you use regularly. You can also use decorative baskets or boxes to store items that you want to keep out of sight, but are still easily accessible when needed.

In Closing 

Revamping your living room can be a fun and exciting project that can transform your space into a beautiful and functional area. From choosing the right color scheme to creating a comfortable seating area, there are a variety of ways to give your living room a new look.
