Battling Bad Breath

Bad breath - it can be a killer - especially from close range. It can send your friends and family ducking for cover. And it'll put an end to any chance of lip action. So here's some advice on battling fungus breath.

1. Use some common sense. If you're gonna be meeting that cute girl from science class after school - it's probably not the best idea to eat that garlic and jalapeno pizza for lunch. Try eating something a little tamer - and save the garlic breath for your mom. It might get you out of doing chores.

2. If you do have to eat that pizza - bring along some gum or breath mints. Try using sugar free stuff too - it keeps your teeth clean at the same time.

3. Brush your teeth after every meal. I know you've been told this a hundred times, but it's true. One of the biggest causes of bad breath is from not brushing and flossing regularly. And give the tongue a scrub too - bacteria loves to party there.

4. Don't smoke! It causes about 4 billion different health problems and bad breath too.

5. If you're ever in a real jam, grab a piece of parsley. That's what the ancient romans used and it can kill even the strongest onion breath.

i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
