I’m not in favor of plastic surgery, but it up every induvidul – but beauty has become such a big industry today … and if men and woman wants it give it to them, but do it in a safe matter and without surgery.

Personal I could consider some  Restylane treatments for my hands, but I doubt I will come to that. I rather use my money for travelling and some more beautiful shoes, but if the lottery win comes …. *smile

  1. Whoa…this was a lot of information. The skin care line sounds interesting. Not sure how I feel about anything injected, no matter how safe it claims to be. : )

    • Andy, they save lives every second around the world .. but there is more pleasant things .. in life, but when we are really sick we are more tolerant to them. *smile

    • Needles save our lives … and keep us alive when needed to. So I don’t have any problems with them .. as such.
      I think we change our views on needles if we have been seriously ill.

  2. Thank you SO much for the ‘homework’ ’cause I shall most decidedly do that and properly!! Actually I do not know of this biochemical studies and am eager to learn . . . even if not government subsidized [as most of our medical stuff here] this is hugely important. The best of British with your small entrance into the system! Sorry – I cannot understand about the ‘needles’ – a momentary ‘discomfort’ and a lot of knowledge!! If ‘needles’ are the most of one’s problems – Glory Hallelujah!!

    • I don’t mind needles … they are necessary and save lives.Only problem is that they have problems to find my veins – sometime they have to have try up to 12 times, that I don’t like.
      Needles is a very small problem when we are really sick.
      I wouldn’t be here today if it hadn’t been for all the needles. *laughing

      • Uhuh!! Another thing we do have in common!! Finding my veins is also an uncertain exploration – since my mastectomy/glands I only have the one side anyways and the first thing I say to any pathologist is ‘It’s OK: let’s take it slow’ 🙂 !

      • And I say … let us get over and done with it. *smile Finding the veins is not a great experience. When they were going to put in a pick line for the chemo – they tried 8 times to get the tub into a vein – but not luck. So I got a power port instead, I had a fantastic luck and I still have the port. It’s like having an umbrella in the bag, so long as I have it, I’m not going to need it. I hope! *laughing.

    • I know …. I think it has been airbrushed. I could do with some airbrushing this morning. Have been more or less in bed with severe neck and shoulder pain for a week.

      • Can’t you ask your hubby to invent one .. I’m not very technical. Yes, I get it once in a while and nothing helps against it. I think it’s a cold that goes wrong. Had it only a month ago. It’s so horrendous can’t get dressed or washed … to brush the teeth is a crying game. But it takes exactly 7 days for it go away. Have asked doctors, no one had an answer.

    • I would mine get my hands smoother … But I would never consider an operation anywhere.
      The day I win enough money I will do my hands, but until then all leftover money goes to travelling. *smile Much more fun.
