Pantene Beautiful Lengths Hair Donation 7

Spring/Summer is on it’s way for us lovely Australian’s so it is time to shed your Winter hairstyle. I know you don’t want those long locks weighing you down in the summer breeze, and luckily I know a place who could make good use of that hair. Monday, 11 November 2013 is the beginning of National Donate Your Hair Week, the second annual event to be run as part of Pantene’s Beautiful Lengths campaign. I did the chop last year and you saw just how easy it was. It wasn’t just easy, it was an honour. My hair was handed to a very sick complete stranger and it couldn’t have made me happier. Does that sound like something you would like to be a part of?

Taking part in National Donate Your Hair Week is easy and it would make Zooey Deschanel very happy. Honestly. Here is what she had to say:

“Pantene is helping to provide confidence and beautiful real-hair wigs to women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment; you can’t put a price on that. I know Australia and New Zealand have received 5,000 ponytails so far which will make a huge difference to many women with cancer, and I hope we can surpass that number this year.”

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 don’t believe bloggers owe anyone an explanation when they disappear but I know that when my favourites have gone AWOL I’ve missed them and been concerned for their wellbeing. I didn’t want to be another blogger who vanished without a trace and leave you wondering. I also believe Continue Reading
