It's National smile week and life style expert Valerie Joseph joins Lindsey Fukano to talk about hacks and looks that can make you and those around you smile:

Sparkles and Flowers naturally catch the eye and make everyone smile
(tools: round sunglasses, pearl stickers – asst sizex, glue)
This DIY was inspired by the fabulous sunnies from Chanel.  Everyone adores Chanel and I thought it would be fun to create our own version.
• Round sunglasses
• Pearl stickers – asstd sizes
• Glue
(if you're mixing up pearl sizes, plan your layout)
• Embellish the edges with pearls.
• Add a drop of glue for added adhesive
You can also use rhinestones to embellish your sunnies.  Whatever makes you smile ?

(tools: paper mache letter, xacto knife, floral foam bricks, faux letters, wire cutters, hot glue gun)
Flowers convey a message of love and care and naturally makes everyone smile ?  Here's a flower idea that will never die.
- Paper mache letter
- Xacto knife
- Floral foam bricks
- Faux letters
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun

- Use xacto knife to remove the top and any cardboard filling on inside of letter
- Use knife to cut foam bricks and fill inside of letter.  Secure pieces with hot glue gun
- Use wire cutters to cut flowers and poke through foam to fill

(tools: Banana peel, toothbrush, toothpaste)

A classic hack may sound bananas.   Bananas are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium just to name a few.  Valeries uses the inside of the banana peels to whiten your teeth?

Valerie said, rub the inside of your top and bottom teeth for about a minute each and let it sit for around 10 minutes.  Try to stay away from gums and lips.  The amazing minerals in the peel will absorb into your teeth and whiten them.  Then, grab a dry toothbrush, start brushing then rinse.  Do this a few times a week to significantly lighten teeth as well as any whitening kit.  

Valerie Joseph then shows off a few floral looks and are available at the POSHd boutique located at Ward Centre.  You may also follow the fashion at @POSHdHI and connect at,
