Fillerina review with before and after photos by beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries

I have been dying to share this Fillerina review with you for so many reasons. I’m so excited to reveal to you my thoughts and my before and after photos that I could burst. But why is this review so important? Put simply, it could save you making a big mistake!

Hyaluronic Acid fillers for anti-wrinkle and volumizing injections are now trending so much that even girls as young as 16 years old are undergoing regular treatments. I’m a vocal advocate for cosmetic enhancement and surgery but I can’t stress enough that those measures really should only be sought as the last of a series of other options. The problem with injectables is that you have to maintain them because once you stop you end up looking worse than when you started – aging doesn’t stop, it’s just not as visible when you run interference.

In my opinion, the longer you can go without using an injectable the better it is for your aging appearance overall. Treat your canvas well and you won’t need to fork out a few hundred dollars each month. My Fillerina review explains how this topically-applied volumising gel could be what you need to avoid the needle.  Continue Reading

Bikini Ready Summer Body

In Australia, we are clutching to the few remaining summer days. Above the equator, people are excited to welcome some warmer days. Whether you are about to enter spring or autumn we all have summer on our minds and the hopes it will roll around quickly. This is the time most people need to start planning what they will to do to get a great summer body, and if you want something quick and effective you really can’t beat a cosmetic enhancement or two.

In this Summer Body Guide I have asked Dr Cath Porter from Cosmetic Physicians Society of Australasia (CPSA) and some cosmetic enhancement experts to tell us which non-surgical treatments will help you to achieve a body you will be proud to flaunt on the beach.  Continue Reading

Over the past couple of days I have shown you my mothers journey through Fillers and Freezers. We started at the beginning with some before photos and the backstory then we moved on to the graphic treatment photos but now it is time to show you the aftermath and some of the picks from the wedding.

Now I do want to declare I am a terrible photographer and probably need a photography class or two, so photographing the results of the treatments wasn’t easy for me. I will admit my photos probably do not show anything close to how they appeared in real life so I hope my caption descriptions can guide you a little bit at what to look for.

Yesterday I began telling you about my mothers journey with fillers and freezers in the lead up to my brother/her son’s wedding. Now I am going to show you the photos from her treatment. I wanted to do these series of posts for two main reasons:

  1. To show you what really happens during an injectables treatment.
  2. To show you how much of an improvement someone can achieve with the correct products, the correct needles and the correct hand.

Before we begin, lets refresh ourselves with a before shot.

This is just one photo. Jump back to really see the wrinkles.

I have to tell you that this post (or series of … yes, there will be more) has been a long time coming. The preparation for this post started way back on 22 December 2011. My brothers wedding was exactly 1 month away and as this is the wedding of her first born (and the favourite child. Don’t bother arguing with me mom, I know the truth!), she was freaking out about looking good. Of course my answer to her worries were simple, fillers and freezers (often known by brand names such as Botox, Juvederm, etc).

Before I continue, let’s look at some before pictures of my mother, shall we?

In-Home Massage Soothe App Review

Have you had a professional massage in your own home? It was a concept I thought was reserved for rich housewives and high-flying executives. To my surprise, however, massage is no longer a luxury as it’s becoming an essential part of self-care. Hunching over computers and mobile devices, less daily movement and exercise …. our bodies are suffering. Massage is one of the easiest ways to reduce pain and stress from mounting up in our body, but with busier lives comes less time for self care.

I’ve always dreamt of having a massage therapist come to me, and I’ve looked into it many times over the last few years. I tried to find a reliable and certified massage therapist who offered in-home massage and didn’t charge a crazy price but that always seemed to be just out of reach. Then, I heard that Soothe had launched in Australia. An app that turns massage into an on-demand service. Will my Soothe app review reveal an answer to my prayers? Read on to find out!
