Three black tops and seven thing you didn't know about me, part 1




I have been given an award! Bea who gave it to me also challenged me to tell you readers seven things about myself that you might not know about me from before...This was really hard, so I decided to focus a bit on my personal beliefs and opinions this time, as these are things I myself find interesting to find out about and discuss with others. However, these texts turned out pretty long so in order not to bore you all with too much text I'm gonna post one or two things at a time. First thing you didn't know about me comes here;

1. My jaw is too small. Most of my life I have unknowingly been pushing my jaw forward in order to bite, close my lips, speak etc resulting in worn out joints in the jaw and muscle tension, which later in life are likely to cause headaches all sorts of trouble. So my dentist has recommended that I get it fixed as best, and soon, as possible. This means that I have been wearing braces since the week before christmas, and that after our trip to Grand Canaria, I will get braces for my lower teeth as well (I only have "train tracks" on my upper teeth at the moment). Once all teeth are nice and straight, I will have an operation to lengthen my jaw by a few millimeters. This is not the end of it though. Nope, I'll be wearing braces for the rest of my life, but thankfully at some point (1-3 years) they won't be glued to my teeth, but removable and only required for a few hours a day/night too keep the teeth from moving again.

So I wear braces, but you will never see any proof of it unless you meet me in real life. Thus, you won't be seeing any images of my teeth for the next year or two...because my intention with this blog is to get you inspired, and I personally think the braces kinda ruin the vintage look, as do my modern glasses, so I take them off for photos when I remember. Now you know why my mouth is always closed in my photos.

To spice this post up a little, here's a series of photos I took to show you my latest flea market finds;





Notice the closed mouth and lack of glasses? Anyways, all the tops are second hand and the skirt is self made.

Oh my god! Someone else in this world with too small a jaw!! I have the same problem but the surgical operation would be so huge and without guarantee of a positive result (and with possible superpainful side effects) that I'm hesitating. It feels somehow relieving to hear that some out there knows too what nice little jaw can feel like! Thank you for sharing!

Nelly; I've heard that there's more than the two of us too, even the dentist I'm seeing has had the same thing done. Sounds like your case might be a bit more difficult than mine though, the side effects from the surgery I've been made aware of were only the possibility of some damage to the nerve in the chin, ie that I might not feel my chin from time to time. Hope you figure out what you want to do though!

I love the blouse in the middle.

That sounds difficult with the braces and the operation. I'm actually having too little space in my jaw so I've been adviced to remove one tooth and then have braces probably for the rest of my life (but one of those invisible ones on the inside), but since there's no urgent medical need for that I'm postponing it = won't probably do it... Good luck to you!

Seriously?? Do you going to come visit the island??
I would be thrilled to share a coffee with you ....

Ina; Yeah, but it's difficult like it is too, it can be a bit sore sometimes and biting is kinda tricky etc. I also have too little space in my jaw, but I wouldn't have had it fixed if it wasn't for the fact that the whole jaw is too small (and too far back, causing trouble). If I were you I wouldn't do it either, unless it is causing some kind of trouble. Thanks!

Rosy; Sure! Sounds fun, where on the island do you live? We are going to Playa del Ingles 26th of march and staying for a week. E-mail me at hippie_pippie(a)hotmail.com and maybe we can arrange something? :)
