Posts in Foamy Lift

It has been a little while since I last spoke about my lover, DMK. Oh, sorry, I don’t mean the man behind the brand himself. No, I mean the skincare line is my lover. Truly, I have never been more in love with anything (don’t tell  my dogs!).

Way back in May I showed you the final evidence of my DMK Skincare Challenge makeover. I still use the products religiously and when people comment on my ‘great skin’ I instantly yell “DMK” at them. So for all of those who were aware of my deep and committed love for DMK, why haven’t you tried it yet?

I am sorry. I shouldn’t have got all narky at you. To make up for it, DMK and I want to award one of you with my most favourite product of all.

Ignore the actual face, just look at the skin. You can win it!

Revitalise Skincare Pack

Up for grabs is the beautifully packaged, summer essential At Home Enzyme Masque kit, containing everything you need to get your skin looking as good as mine (big head much?!?). Some of you may remember this masque from this revealing post. It may look ‘unique’ but it is vital in my fight against aging.

Official Description

Foamy Lift and Exoderma Peel combine to create the ultimate DMK at home masque. The masque provides superior exfoliation by removing dead skin cell material to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion.

These unique formulations utilise messenger enzymes, used only by DMK. These enzymes provide a true form of nourishment to the skin cells to ensure your skin is not only exfoliated but left feeling fresh and soft as well.

The bottom line …. Continue Reading

Nineteen days ago I started on my new skincare regime using products from Dannè Montague-King. Being almost 3 weeks into the new schedule, I thought it might be nice to update you on my progress so far.

Over this time I have been using my skin prescribed skincare products every morning and night. After the first 7 days I had some additional products thrown into the mix because I had already started to see results with the first lot of products. Here is the NEW routine Continue Reading

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
