Beauty by Buford Review and $50 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!

As most of you know, I just got back from Hawaii. I will tell you that I saw the most gorgeous people out there who exude both beauty and confidence.  I have to admit that yes,  I still feel good wearing a two piece bathing suit- I work out and eat right, to try to maintain my figure, but I know that in a couple of years, my body might not be holding up as well as my youthful 30′s figure! I might want to look like those gorgeous women who I saw roaming the beach in their 60s, looking fine, tanned, and in shape. Although some of them have a naturally beautiful figure, others have had some type of plastic surgery done. Right now, I am in no rush and will tell you that no, I do not see plastic surgery in my future; however, you never know what the future will hold.

Will I change my mind in the future? Only time will tell… When I was younger, I was absolutely against the thought of altering myself by any type of means other than a healthy diet and exercise regime. However, as time goes on, and I see more and more “regular” people getting work done, I am beginning to get swayed. It is not only the celebrities I see in magazines who have resorted to getting cosmetic procedure done- it is people like you and me.  I am still not sure it is for me, but I am not against people doing whatever they believe will make them look/feel wonderful. We all want to look our best in our lives! I think if you want to go for cosmetic procedures surgical, or non surgical, you should go for it! It is every persons right to decide and I will never go against ones choice!

I will tell you there is a wonderful  American Board of Plastic Surgery, Board Certified Doctor who has been nationally recognized and extensively trained in providing the latest and best products and procedures to his clients- Dr. Buford.  You can check out his site, Beauty by Buford, to see all the amazing procedures he has done and what people are saying about him. His results are truly amazing! His office is based in Englewood, CO. He is a successful surgeon who also partakes in skin care methods as well.  Just read his testimonials and you will see his wonderful accolades!

    Hi! :) For me, bookstore! :)

    As for me, plastic surgery just isn’t something for me… can’t see me getting cut or poked or whatnot. Aging is part of life… Can’t even get myself to seriously think of dying my hair to cover these grays (although, on another subject, I thought grays were supposed to come much later, not starting in my late 20s! LOL)
