Pamper yourself once in a while

I often wish I could splurge a bit for myself or that a benefactor would grant my wish of a makeover. But since my wish is far from being realized, I decided to just create a wish list of personal effects that I would like to purchase in the future. The list includes a pair of Capri pants from Zalora, a casual blouse and a shirt, ballet flats, and a pair of rubber shoes.

I haven’t updated my wardrobe since I gained weight last year, so an additional top wouldn’t hurt the already tight budget if ever. Also, I badly need a pair of new flats to go with the casual blouse. I’m carefully picking up the items listed on my wish list so as not to irk the husband. But the ever supportive hubby said its okay to pamper myself once in a while. He knows I won’t be spending his money but the GCs I’ll be getting from a writing gig, thus the wise remark.

Paying For Breast Implants: What You Need to Know

It’s almost a no-brainer that women all over yearn for perfect breasts. Whether we want them bigger or perkier, we always want to modify our mammaries. We take advantage of whatever science has to offer to indulge us in our fantasies of bodily enhancement.

But the thing is, better-looking breasts don’t come cheap. It’s not something you can get on amazon and enjoy after 3 days of waiting. Breast implants do come with an exorbitant price tag which no plain Jane can readily afford.

If you’re quizzing yourself as to how much breast implants cost today, you should be ready for jaw-dropping figures. Their prices play around the ballpark of 3,500-4,000 USD.

There are many factors to consider when making an estimate of the fees for breast augmentation surgery. You’ll have to think about hospital fees, medication, anesthesia fees and costs for other medical tests which you may have to undergo. Don’t hesitate to ask your surgeon about all the expenses you’ll have to tackle throughout the procedure.

Think twice about where you want to have your surgery done. Prices greatly vary from each city or state. This is due to the different demands and competition in each area.

Explore all your options. Don’t stick to the first plastic surgeon you have coffee with. Meet with several doctors and remember to ask about their professional fees. The cost will vary depending on his or her level of expertise and years of experience.
Don’t forget to ask about breast implant warranties. You’ll save on extra costs if they’re part of the breast augmentation package offered to you.

Nobody’s stopping you from becoming a Heidi Montag, if that’s what you want. Just carefully study all your financing options before having breast surgery done.
