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.

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
