The Great and the Good of the Golden Globes red carpet #fashion #awards #redcarpet #film

Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 09.57.01So in the early hours of the morning, whilst we were all sound asleep, Hollywood was awash with stars as they turned out for the annual 2014 Golden Globe Awards.

In terms of the starry award ceremony there were some surprises with American Hustle being a big winner on the night with Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams who both picked up acting awards, and Matthew McConaughey scooping the best actor award for Dallas Buyers Club. But the top honour of best Film and best Director went to our very own home grown talent Steve McQueen and 12 Years a Slave.

But there was another scoring system taking place that evening, and it was in the fashion stakes. Although all the big hitters were out and acting as show ponies for the big designers, we have to say that there was nothing absolutely outstanding hitting the red carpet last night.

Here are a pick of our favourites:

In terms of trends, we saw lots of simple block colours, particularly on the ever-young Helen Mirren flying the British flag with a gorgeous teal Jenny Packham Dress.

Best supporting actress nominee Lupita Nyong’o for 12 Years a Slave was dressed head to toes in Ralph Lauren, securing her spot as a new Hollywood heavyweight in not only an acting capacity but also effortless style. We love the split sleeves that give almost a space age feel to this simple, elegant number. Screen Shot 2014-01-13 at 10.02.54

Sophia Vergara looked dramatic in a Zac Posen gown which we felt matched perfectly her Latino looks and larger than life personality, teaming it with some gorgeous turquoise jewellery she really stole the night for us.

Sitting slightly on the fence:

The acting world darling Jennifer Lawrence rocked out her favourite awards go-to designer Christian Dior, and although dramatic in length and width it felt a bit too ultra modern (maybe to match her new hair cut) with the slightly unflattering black hoops, but we love her anyway and hoping come oscar night we see something slightly more elegant and regal, after all she is the royalty in this game!

Uh oh this doesn’t look right!: 

Sandra Bullock what are you doing?! Normally so graceful and high in the fashion stakes around this time of year, sadly, with this Prabal Gurung gown she’s stepping right out of panto and onto a losing streak! Patchwork quilting doesn’t look flattering at all, and that flamenco style skirt is soooo 1980’s (and no it can’t be classed as retro chic!)

Another longstanding glamourpuss gone wrong, Julia Roberts, gorgeous face, gorgeous figure, but is she stepping out as a school ma’am tonight? Stuffy and ever so slightly 1990’s scruffy, maybe both these ladies are trying to get back in touch with their youth? Sadly its really not working….oops!

Well that’s it, congrats to all the award and fashion winners for the night, there’s more big ceremonies to come so fashion fans stay glued to your seat!

We all know that beauty is big business. This year think beyond what you wear, how you style your hair and what you put on your face – remember that a smile, yes a smile, really is the key to everyday beauty, and you wouldn’t want to mess that up now would you?

A smile is the most universally recognized facial expression, it signifies happiness, and is the key to you telling everyone else that all is right in the world! So if you’re worried about your smile, never fear, we’ve been introduced to a nifty little solution in the form of DenTek Easy Brush Interdental Cleaners, which have just started launching in the UK.

Get me some to try!! – COMPETITION TIME!

If you have a quick read below, hopefully you’ll agree that we’ve sold this pretty well, because, well, we here at Snoochie Boochies have given it our tried and tested approval!

So if after reading up on Dentek,  you’re convinced, and want to give it a go, then all you need to do is tweet us @mysnoochiebooch with the words #IMCONVINCED #DENTEK and we’ll pick a lucky winner at random to send a Dentek goodie pack to. It couldn’t be easier.

Who is Dentek?

DenTek, is the leading oral health care brand in the US and provides a full range of interdental products that help prevent a range
 of serious health conditions and diseases. These include lung disease, diabetes, blood clotting and inflamed arteries- a major risk factor for heart disease.Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 13.05.11

Why should I give it a go?

1) Follow in the footsteps of the worlds beauties.

Kate Middleton, Julia Roberts, Kylie Minogue & Jessica Alba are renowned for their smiles – and it takes less than 10 minutes a day to implement an oral hygiene routine – much quicker than applying make-up and a faster route to a more confident smile!

2) Wear it with pride!

Be proud of your smile. Go Beyond Brushing with DenTek to help remove food and plaque. Flossing every day is an investment in you and your overall health, particularly your heart health

We’ve given it a go ourselves and it ain’t half bad!

pinkA smile, wouldn’t be a smile without good teeth, and having given it a go, we do think that Dentek may revolutionise the flossing market and become the best way to look after your pearly whites. Dentek provides a new way of flossing (yep flossing that bit that we all need to admit we probably don’t do as regularly as we should!) The Dentek brushes are neat individual brushes that are much easier to manage than that traditional floss string rubbish. It’s like a little sidekick for your toothbrush that gets deep into the crevices of your teeth (ewww!) and manages to find all that extra nasty stuff that your toothbrush might have missed.

If you brush it along your gums, it tickles too! (always a good sign!) and although this is the gross bit, unlike the traditional flossing methods, you really do see what you pick up from your teeth, which may not be what you want to see, but certainly shows that its working! We then followed this up with a little mouthwash and ta-dah! We felt like we had a new set of gnashers!

Whats the science bit then?

We always like to get a little technical for you, so here’s a few (not so fun) facts…

1) Poor oral hygiene can affect you and your family’s health… Brushing without flossing is comparable to cleaning only 65% of your body leaving the other 35% dirty1. By flossing daily with a DenTek Floss Pick, it will reduce the amount of bacteria from the mouth that can enter into the bloodstream. This can trigger INFLAMMATION in the ARTERIES, which can increase the risk of HEART DISEASE2

2) DenTek’s Interdental Cleaners remove bacterial plaque, a major cause of gum disease. GUM DISEASE has been identified as a Screen Shot 2014-01-07 at 13.01.50risk factor for both HEART and LUNG DISEASE as well as DIABETES3.

3) 90% of all cases of bad breath can be contributed to harmful bacteria that is not removed by brushing, flossing or gargling4. DenTek’s Tongue Cleaner removes the source of bad breath, the oral and debis bacteria that reside in the groove and curves of the tongue – places where a brush just can’t reach. Leaving your tongue dirty can lead to conditions even more horrific than halitosis – GUM DISEASE, PLAQUE, BLOOD- CLOTTING and INFLAMED ARTERIES5. 
So by ensuring you add a 10-minute interdental regime to your daily routine, you could help prevent a number of serious – and expensive – conditions from occuring. Go ‘Beyond Brushing’ with DenTek for interdental cleaning, promoting good health beyond just your mouth.

 

Remember, wear a smile, one size fits all!
