Valentine's Day

We are 10 days away from Valentine’s Day so it’s time to commence the romantic chatter. I personally think the Hallmark holiday of Valentine’s Day puts the emphasis on all the wrong places. Forget about spending time and money on showing someone else you love them – it’s time to show yourself you love you!

How many of you can think to yourself, “I love me”? It was something I could never have fathomed until very recently but with my lifestyle improvements it would seem my self-loathing and depression has lifted. Prior to that, there were few things that really lifted my confidence levels. Despite my crippling body image issues, one thing that strangely made me feel good was a beautiful set of matching lingerie. It sounds ridiculous but the power of  a matching bra and panties can do great things for the mind.

Lingerie isn’t always about the people who get to see you wear it. For me, that was never the case. I love good lingerie because of how it fits and feels. Slipping on a sexy set of silks under regular, boring clothes does feel different. It makes you feel different and that is why this Valentine’s Day I want you to focus on making yourself feel good before anyone else. To help you along, I’m sharing with you some of the most gorgeous lingerie buys available right now.  Continue Reading

Workout Fashion
A recent study proved that if you wear appropriate workout gear that not only functions well but looks good, you are more likely to continue exercise and achieve greater results. My one and only new years resolution in 2014 is get fit and tone up. Sure, it has superficial motives because I want to look hot but nevertheless the goal is still the same. I wan’t to rock this task so I thought I better take a look at my workout wardrobe. The result? I have nothing!

I’ve commenced group personal training to start out the year. The worst part about having nothing but old t-shirts and track pants with worn-out elastic is that not only do I feel bad because I know I look bad, but I feel even worse because people can see me look this bad. It definitely makes me want to stop exercising and run to hide under my doona. I guess that study was right!

My goal is a workout wardrobe makeover. Here’s my shopping list: Continue Reading

La Senza Underwear Group

Do you have favourite underwear? A style and fabric that makes you feel comfortable but sexy at the same time? For almost my entire life I had no such thing. I was constantly at war with panties. They were too tight, too loose, dug in, sagged, felt suffocating and uncomfortable – I could go on forever about how much of a pain it was to wear underwear. That was up until a few years ago when La Senza arrived in Australia. I discovered their underwear and my life changed forever. I bought a handful and they had lasted me all this time but a couple of months ago I realised I was in desperate need of an update so I went to find where the nearest store was located. To my shock, La Senza had just closed their operations in Australia. I was gutted.

I am not the type of person to allow a little thing like withdrawing from a country to get in the way of the underwear that I loved. I logged on to their main website (based in Canada) and began searching for a way to get it to Australia. Luckily they ship internationally … they must understand how important a girls underwear is. The shipping wasn’t going to be cheap so with this in mind I thought I better make use of this situation and really stock up. La Senza were offering a special of 7 cotton panties for just CAD $28. Bargain. I’ll take 2 lots. This is what I ordered: Continue Reading

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
