When it comes to basic oral hygiene we all know the drill: brush and floss like your life depends on it. But don't fool yourself, that's the least that you can do for your oral health. In addition to brushing and flossing, using a tongue scraper can help ensure your mouth is fresh and bacteria-free. When you're brushing and flossing you are solely focusing on cleaning your teeth, but there are also millions of bacteria that collect on your tongue throughout the day. Merely brushing your tongue and using a mouthwash does little to remove these bacteria. Almost half of the bacteria in the mouth live on the surface of the tongue, and if not removed, they can cause bad breath as well as other dental health issues such as gum disease.

If you are a dog parent, you certainly know how much your furry pet is active and loves to play. Dogs are curious, intuitive and cheerful animals which entertain themselves all the time with everything they have at their disposal. Hence, choosing toys and accessories...

As the years pass, and I watch society grow increasingly dependent on technology, I start to realize that mine was probably one of the last generations to have experienced a healthy and happy childhood. From tablets to smartphones, today children are preoccupied with objects that rob them of their attention and prevent them from focusing on the real world.

Fashion is an inevitable part of our everyday life. We buy a large number of clothes per year, thus spend a lot of money on creating our look and maintaining a certain style. It is such a powerful tool, as it is a way to say who you are without having to speak. However, the rise of fast fashion and its inhumane corporate practices have prompted the birth of a movement which fights against today's fashion industry and the unsustainability of its business model. In order words, now we have ethical clothing as an alternative to mass-produced clothing.

If you've ever looked at a vast, empty foyer and thought there's something missing, the answer could be an entry table. Simply said, without this one piece of furniture the entryway of a home is not able to live up to its purpose. The entry...

Cooking is more than just throwing the ingredients in a pot and stirring them. It is an art in which you need to know how to mix the right ingredients at the right temperature so that you have an out-of-this-world experience. But besides all that, cooking also requires some appropriate pieces of equipment. Focusing on the different kinds of pots and pans, many people disregard the huge importance of cooking knives for an easier and more pleasant cooking experience. The kitchen knife is certainly the most practical and necessary tool in every kitchen - no dish can be prepared without using the proper one for the purpose. There are plenty of options to choose from, but to be able to choose the right kitchen knife for the task at hand, you need to understand the different types available.

After years of doing it, by now you should know that you need to be selective when it comes to what you go to bed with. Between the hand and foot lotions, the mandatory glass of water, and the pile of books, the space on...

In a world where being pressed for time happens on a daily basis, taking care of an aging parent is not really part of our schedules. Yet, it doesn't have to be this way. Sure, we might think they'd be better off in nursing homes where they'd be able to meet people of their own age, make friends, and have professional care 24/7, but does that really help in the long run?
