Posts in Breast Augmentation

Now that 2011 is over we can take a look back and reflect on some of the past trends. No trend interests me more that plastic surgery and cosmetic enhancement. Despite the fact I don’t believe these procedures should be ‘trend based’, it is hard to ignore that certain trends do appear, especially when there are new breakthroughs of advancements.

I spoke with Dr Scott Ingram, Australian plastic surgeon and Vice President of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) about what we saw in 2011 and what we can expect in 2012. Continue Reading

It is no secret I am completely infatuated with plastic surgery. The thought of going under the knife to better my appearance isn’t something that scares me. If I had the money, I would have turned myself into a Barbie replica by now. But, putting aside my own narcissistic tendencies, plastic surgery is not something to be taken lightly.

When I began my journey to getting a nose job (which was the founding basis for this blog, and you can read the first ever post here) I spent hours every day for months researching. I looked into doctors, procedure types, anaesthesiologists, hospital options, and of course, personal experiences. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything on the last point. No one seemed to have documented their journey through a plastic surgery procedure. My attempts at blogging about the surgery weren’t exactly top-notch (Example A) but at the time I felt by doing it maybe someone out there in the big wide world who was thinking about getting a nose job would find it helpful.

Professional beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries shares her personal blogger burnout story and experience

This article is Part 1 of a three-part series about my personal experience with Blogger Burnout – My Demise + My Recovery + My Future

I started The Plastic Diaries in 2008, became a full-time blogger in 2010 and vanished from the blogging universe in 2015. Where did I go? Why? What happened to me? These are questions that have been asked of me during my 18+ month disappearance. The short answer was blogger burnout – a rarely spoken of condition that is fast becoming a serious concern amongst the influencer industry. Have you ever followed a blogger and notice that one day they have just disappeared? Their blog stopped posting new content, their social media went untouched – it happens often. In my almost 9 years of blogging I have lost count of the bloggers that have come and gone, most of which I have no idea why or where they went.

Upon my return to blogging at the end of last year I’ve put off explaining what exactly occurred in my life. I confided in a few select friends and trusted individuals about my story but I’ve brushed over it with the wider community by saying the cause was “personal stuff”. I don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
