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.

Female Hair Loss Before and After

Female hair loss and hair thinning are a growing sector within the beauty market. I used to think female hair loss was a beauty issue and as such could be treated with beauty products. Self-inflicted hair loss is my most common concern. I blamed my tight braids, hair irons and chemical damage. However, the fact remains that the leading causes for female hair loss are health related.

When my normal amount of hair fall dramatically increased, with noticeable receding of my hairline, I panicked. I didn’t know where to begin with treating it but I couldn’t understand why it was happening. I’d stop styling my hair in tight do’s, I rarely heat style and I haven’t dyed my hair in almost 2 years. I ruled out self-inflicted hair loss so I went straight to my GP (doctor) to ask for advice. It turns out that my female hair loss was completely reversible for less than $20!  Continue Reading

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Trefiel Lace Face Mask, Moisturising sheet mask skincare.

If you follow beauty on Instagram it’s highly likely you’ve seen the Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask. They look like a piece of black lace, often seen adorning the faces of cute beauty influencers. What they actually are is a range of sheet masks. Really pretty sheet masks.

The Trefiel Lace Sheet Mask is available in four formulations – Moisturising, Brightening, Repairing and Toning. Trefiel initially launched with just the Moisturising mask but later rebranded and added 3 more masks to the line-up. I chose to review their original Moisturising Face Mask.  Continue Reading
