Posts in Rhinoplasty

To continue my week of revealing personal stories I am going to tell you about the time I found out I had skin cancer. Yesterday I told you about the Rhinoplasty I had in 2008, and it is that story that intertwines with today’s story. I have mentioned to you in passing that skin cancer is a subject close to me and that I had a personal experience with it, but unless you went back to my posts from 2008 you wouldn’t know much else about it.

Today I am going to give you the full story about how my decision to have plastic surgery lead to me finding out I had skin cancer.  Continue Reading

To begin my week of personal stories I am going to start with the tale that saw me create The Plastic Diaries beauty blog. Many of you probably wouldn’t realise that’s where this blog started and that the name “The Plastic Diaries” was chosen because I created the blog as a way to keep a diary of my experience with plastic surgery. I also think I may have been watching The Princess Diaries at the time and it seemed a cute play on a classic chick flick ….. hence, The Plastic Diaries. Continue Reading

Some of you may have seen the odd snap of me with blonde hair appear on The Styleless Diaries or any one of my many social media pages, but I have never really talked to you about my hair colour history. As you can probably guess, brown is my natural colour but I do love being blonde and it is the one hair colour I have opted for more than anything else (second to that is purple!). In my time of need, I am turning to you, my lovely readers, for some much needed advice.


You all know me as a brunette rockstar, but read on!

My Blonde History

My first attempt at going blonde was sometime in my pre-teens. I can’t even remember how old I was because it was that long ago. My mother and I discovered

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.

Getting my bandages trimmed and stitches removed

Now, for those who are thinking about getting a breast augmentation, you have a resource too.

In what I can only describe as absolute genius, a new blog/website has launched that will showcase the journey of breast augmentation from the view of three very different women.  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
