First Date Nerves? – Don’t Sweat it!

Ladies, nothing kills the playful, flirty confidence that is so irresistible to guys faster than reserved self-consciousness… exactly the way most of us feel on a first date to begin with. What could make it worse? Sweaty pits.

You’re finally out on the town with some handsome mug you’ve been making goo-goo eyes at for the past 6 months- you planned your outfit, your hair, your entire look- but minutes into the date its clear that all that careful planning may be for naught if Hunky Hunkmasterson gets a peek at your perspiring pits.

5 Non-Invasive Treatments You Should Think About Now

Even here in sunny Florida, it’s been a cold and wet winter.  I can’t even imagine what those of you more north are going through!  Not that I am trying to wish my life away, but one way I personally like to beat the winter blues is to start working toward bathing suit season. Summer is a time when we can shed all of those extra layers, dare to bare some skin and soak up all of that glorious Vitamin D (while protecting our skin with the appropriate SPF, of course).  So, in addition to the benefit of the endorphins released with that ramped up exercise program, here are 5 sure-fire treatments to have you feeling happier and more confident no matter what’s going on outside!

Are you one of the many women, like myself, who is tired of looking tired?  Is there anything worse than being TOLD you look tired, even after you have gotten a solid 10 hours of sleep or come back from a relaxing week of vacation?  Okay, lets face it these days many of us ARE tired.  And how often do any of us get 10 hours of sleep or have a “relaxing” week off?  But wouldn’t it be nice to look as if that were the case.

Michelle Obama doesn’t rule out plastic surgery

A healthy Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama, our first lady, recently went on the record as saying that she is not ruling out plastic surgery or Botox in the future.  She said, “Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves…I’ve also learned to never say never.” What a breath of fresh air it was for me to read this. That sentiment is really what Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Enhancement is all about- freedom! Freedom to be happy with your appearance… Freedom to be comfortable making the choices you make in order to look your best… Freedom from stigma or the opinions of others about what we “should” or “should not” be doing (provided it is safe and makes us happy).  Read more

Plastic Surgery for Barbie

Plastic surgery app for Barbie
P.T. Barnum is reported to have said that there is no such thing as bad publicity- but as regards some of the things I read about plastic surgery and the people offering it, I would have to disagree. On the other hand, sometimes the good guys win… A few days ago, Twitter was exploding with commentary on an app being offered in the App Store as a game with Barbie branding in which cartoon style young women with unfortunate aesthetic problems were patients in the game player’s plastic surgery office, allowing one to play at doing liposuction and making incisions here and there that resulted in a more traditionally beautiful version of the cartoon patient in the game.  Read more
