If you had planned to attend Vogue Fashion’s Night Out (VFNO) in Sydney this coming Thursday you may have already been on the Vogue Australia website sorting out which retailers to visit on the night. Today I want to hopefully add in another stop on your list and that is to come visit me at the La Prairie counter in David Jones. If you hadn’t planned to attend, maybe I can change your mind?

I have been a bit of a sooky Sally ever since New York got to have the GREATEST event called Vogue Fashion’s Night Out a couple weeks ago on September 10. It is basically a massive shopping event that is held all over the city at fashion houses, boutiques, salons, spas and stores to offer everything from discounts, services and giveaways (there are simultaneous events held in other cities around the world but New York is the BIG one). One of the biggest trends and publicity stunts of Fashion Night Out is the ever elusive 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 didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
