When Plastic Surgery Goes Wrong. Very Wrong.

I have nothing against a little nip or tuck, but these pictures show how some people took it way too far. It's fine when you've got a big 'ol nose or you're flat chested or you've got scarring and wish to have some reconstructive surgery done. Fix it, I say! But what the fuck went through the minds of these poor individuals below? Yes, I feel sorry for them, but somehow understand how they got to this point of no return. Going for plastic surgery is almost like getting a tattoo done. You get addicted and one is never enough. You have your breasts enlarged and suddenly you 'see' this bump on your nose or the thin lips or the love-handles. You'll start looking for flaws just so you can go back under the knife. I know. It's an addiction problem combined with a low self-esteem and it becomes an ugly obsession. But then my question is this: why can't surgeons say no or is it really all about the money? Do surgeons ever come to a point where they refuse to operate on a patient? Perhaps only once the person no longer looks like a human being? They are giving the plastic surgery industry a bad name.

Point is, the damage is done and there's nothing they can do to fix it, so they, once again, turn to plastic surgery. It's a vicious cycle. Don't get me wrong, I'm completely pro-plastic surgery, because it has changed the lives of many people for the better, but theres a fine line not to be overstepped.

This is now pass the point of scary. This is some disturbing shit. I guess it's not 'plastic surgery gone wrong', but more like 'plastic surgery gone overboard'. Proceed with caution.
All this boy needed was a haircut, but now he looks like a cartoon character.

I can't wait to see what this girl looks like when she's aged a couple of years.

Could this be a sex-change gone wrong? I'm not so sure anymore.

If Chucky and Pamela Anderson should have a baby, this is what it would look like.

Talk about overdoing it.

Just when you think she can't look worse, she gets herself a fringe.

Another sex-change-gone-wrong

Ok, I agree, this one needed surgery, but fat injections in her lips would've been enough. Now it just looks like she grew a beard.

She looks like one of the Muppets. Unless that was her idea?

There's a song written for this girl. It's called, 'Who let the dogs out?'

And the lady who probably invented plastic surgery.

Madonna, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but it's time to give it up already. You came, you saw, you made music history, but now you're just scaring us.

I think the aliens have landed.

It's not just women who get caught up in the addiction.

All I know is, after looking at these pictures, I'm happy with the way I look. So what if my nose isn't perfect or my teeth isn't super white or if I have cellulite or if I don't have calves or D-cups? I'm human and I intend on looking like one too.

Cheers to being natural.

Cape Town Beer Festival

Saturday morning we felt a little fragile after Friday night's Sailor party, but we had to take our two winners of our Beer Fest competition to the festival. We started off with a decent, oily, made-for-hangovers breakfast, then we hit the road to the Hamilton's Rugby Stadium in Green Point. It was a bit windy, but we didn't let that stand in our way of a good party. We got there, tasted some foreign beers, stuffed our faces with pretzels and fries from Hudson's Burger (yes, a 'mobile' version of the one in Kloof Street) and even drank huge Black Label beers. I don't even drink beer, but it was actually not that bad. In fact, I might just drink it more often. There were other drinks to choose from, but I always say, 'when in Rome, do as the Romans'. We walked around at the festival and soaked up as much of it as we could, because we couldn't stay too long. Places to be, you know.

Overall the festival was fun. There were a lot of people! We missed out on the live bands, but we were in time for the rugby. We discovered this little smoking section with couches and a Foosball table, so we decided to make that our spot for the day.

Later that evening we decided that we were going to skip the Sasha Martinengo gig at China White, because we were somehow convinced to go to Wellington instead for a foam party. I just felt like doing something else for a change and a foam party was something I last did as a teen. I've never experienced a foam party quite like the one in Watergat. The foam was pouring from two machines, which were mounted to the roof, and the whole place was covered in foam. I was completely drenched! The whole place looked like one big swimming pool. I definitely want to do it again, but next time, I'll be beter prepared. I wish I had photos of this party, but we couldn't risk taking a camera in there. Or anything valuable for that matter. Oh, next time, I'm going in a bikini. Who wouldn't thought that foam can ruin your clothes the way mine was ruined! But what the heck, it was totally worth all the fun and laughter we got in return.

So glad the hectic weekend is over. Now to prep for the next weekend. The madness just never stops.

Sailor Party!

Ahoy me maties! The long awaited Sailor Party finally took place on Friday night. There's not much I can say about the party, because the photos will truly speak for itself. What a night it was! The outfits were a bit risqué, but that's what we're all about. Creating a stir. Besides, I've never received so many free shooters or posed for photos as much as I did that night. We mingled, we danced, we teazed, we laughed, we drank, we flirted, we took over and we had an absolute blast! Happy Birthday again to one of my best friends!

Everybody loves a costume party!

And so the posing continued...

... and more

I'm not referring to this guy in particular, bu there is just something about a man in uniform.

It really is hard to put gloves back on when you've got alcohol in your system. I guess that's why I lost mine that night.

I loved my costume uniform. It made me feel like a Captain!
Happy Monday everyone. How are ya'll feeling? I think my weekend is catching up with me.

It's Friday and I...

... hate the wind in my hair, but I love this picture.
... am kicking my weekend off with a Sailor-themed party tonight. Beer Fest tomorrow, Sasha Martinengo at China White Saturday night and moving on Sunday.
... love to party!
... listened to Jax Panik in my car on my way to work this morning. The volume was turned way up.
... am in holiday mode!
... have a weakness for a guy with hot, sexy, tanned, ripped and muscular arms. I can't help it! My weakness has gotten me in a lot of trouble before.
... just realized, tonight there will be men in uniform. Navy suits. Yummy!
... am always craving a beef sausage roll. Why can't I just be allergic to junk food?
... don't know what else to put here.

Happy Friday!! I haven't been in such a party mood since, erm, Wednesday.
Hope to bump into many of you at the Beer Festival!

And the Winners of the Beer Fest Comp is...

Before you hold your breath, let me just apologize for taking so long to announce the winners. Apart from being totally busy yesterday, rescuing a baby bird and hungover, I was sent on the most boring Fire Warden Training! Torture. Today I'm back in the land of the sober living and can finally announce the winners of the Cape Town Beer Festival competition, but before I do, just a huge thank you to all the ladies who entered! We were completely blown away by your love for beer!


The two winners, who each wins a ticket to attend the Beer Festival on Saturday, including a fat goodie bag, are Talieta and Esmé! Talieta sent in 30 photos and Esmé sent in a slideshow with music. She especially arranged a beer-drinking get-together so that she could take many photos. Going the extra mile is what made these two ladies stand out. They have been notified already and we can't wait to go party with them!
Congratulations once again to the winners and a special thank you to our wonderful sponsors! Remember, if you didn't win, you can still buy your tickets online - here.
