Anyone who has known me longer than 4 years would know I love sexy costumes. And no, not for the purpose they were initially designed for, but for just playing dress-ups and looking cute.

I am a notorious dresser-upper and every Halloween I try to rope in as many people as I can to dress up with me. It has rarely worked but nevertheless I have always enjoyed myself wearing some ridiculously adorable costume. Now, before you utter SLUT under your breathe, let me explain why I am talking about this today.

My thoughts are, there is a costume for almost every body shape. I have had my body shape issues over the years and I wanted to show you the costumes I wore at those times. My goal is to show you that it didn’t matter what shape I was, I had fun and I think you will too. After sharing with you my photos I am going to show you some of my favourite costume picks for 2011!

My Costume Slideshow

Here are just a few of my costumes I have worn over the years. Trust me when I say this is just a small sampling of my collection. Eeep!

2006: I thoroughly enjoyed my job at Sexpo of wearing costumes. Good times.

2006: What a charmer. At my ‘School’s Out’ themed work Christmas party

I have been holding off these images for a little while because I wanted to wait till a more appropriate time. I have decided today is that day. Back in August when I visited Cosmoprof North America, I got a sneak peek at some of the Halloween launches from nail brands China Glaze and Color Club. Today I am going to show you the photos I snapped.

China Glaze – Haunting Collection

The size piece collection released by China Glaze for Halloween 2011 had me mighty excited. I really didn’t see this coming but the one that got me most excited was the presence of a Glow-In-The-Dark lacquer.

Beauty blogger Kimberly Nissen of The Plastic Diaries reviews Dermaquest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser

Face cleansers are seen as quite an underrated product in terms of our overall skincare needs, but they’re actually really important. The correct cleanser for your skin should remove dirt, debris and build-up that otherwise gets in the way of your other skincare products delivering their best results. A vast majority of skin issues can be activated simply by using the wrong cleanser. When it comes to anti-aging, it’s essential to not use a face cleanser that is drying or stripping. Hydration is key, and that’s one of the major claims behind the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser.

As I continue my fight against aging and dry skin I’ve tested the DermaQuest Stem Cell 3D Facial Cleanser. Is it worth the price tag? Read on to find out.  Continue Reading

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
