I’ve been thinking about the ever popular duckface more and more since I started drinking coffee and what I have concluded is simple, the ‘duckface’ girls are trying to score gorgeous cheekbones, plump lips, and hide any traces of unsightly teeth… by squishing their lips together. I knew there was a good reason for the duckface phenomenon and, I must admit, I can’t blame them. What I am about to show you is painful and makes me contemplate whether or not coffee is worth this disgusting picture.
For real. The picture below was so close to being cut out of this post because it makes my stomach flip-flop.
You see, one day I was filming a vlog and BAM my chompers showed up with a yellow tint! A yellow tint? How embarrassing! I was absolutely heartbroken because I have smile envy. Smile envy as in, I told one of my blogging friends I was going to steal her pure white teeth because they were beautiful and I don’t wear the color green very well. Ha! She wasn’t too thrilled with my creepy idea and I can’t say I blame her.
In case you didn’t know, I’m going on my honeymoon in a few short months, like in 50 days, and the last time I checked duckfaces and yellow teeth did not make it on my packing list. Yellow teeth aren’t even on my ‘maybe take’ list because I’m going to sunny California, where pearly whites are pretty much a requirement. I can’t go to the land of celebrities with yellow teeth! What if I run into Brad Pitt or George Clooney? <Insert swoon>
Let me break down my duckface boycott:
- Mission- a month’s worth of brush strokes in a day.
- Challenge- accepted.
I’ve been using a battery operated toothbrush for close to a year because it was a fabulous coupon deal but, the truth is, you get what you pay for. The day I realized my chompers were sporting a new fur coat was the day I told myself it was time to upgrade my electric toothbrush. Plain and simple, fur coats belong in your closet, not your mouth. Yuck!
My new Philips Sonicare PowerUp was a whooping $20 and pretty much a no brainier. You guys, this electric toothbrush is fancy with its two minute timer and ability to swap out the heads. I don’t know about you but I take the two minute rule pretty seriously because the last person I want to tick off is the Tooth Fairy. Nope. I’m not trying to spend a lot of money in my mouth down the road because I didn’t mind her rules.
What is life like with a Philips Sonicare toothbrush?
For the record, I don’t wish the acts in the video upon anyone because scrubbing the floor is one of the descriptive phrases in the dictionary next to the word torture. Pure torture. My tip for all of the crazy coupon users out there- donate all of your manual toothbrushes BEFORE purchasing your new Philips Sonicare PowerUp so you don’t end up on your hands and knees scrubbing the floor.
And don’t miss the epic journey of the toothbrush if you are in the mood for another video.
