I can clearly see a pattern here, I do major room makeovers in December, to be honest it's far much easier and cheaper due to all the black Friday and Christmas Sales. After my bedroom Makeover I couldn't wait to work on another room. I thought I wold do my living room but decided to start with the dining room.

Decorating the dining room was fun and a little bit more complicated than the Bedroom. There were so many elements and sections to deal with and this time I played with colour. I wanted something vibrant and fun for the dining. My daughter Zosi was my main inspiration since she loves colour, I want to create memories here that she will always remember.

For my walls I used Crown Paints Silk Emulsion in White and for my doors and wardrobes I used Crown Paints Gloss in White. My Fundi Pascal always comes through (0723205073) I've listed where I got everything an estimate of the price (If I can't remember). 


The table I got from Odds and Ends after the one I wanted sold out. The feel is the same however the look is different. When I got my furniture there was a 30% off sale at the store.

I attended the Pink Lady and Hendricks Brunch last weekend and it was all full of vibes. Hendricks served amazing cocktails to accompany the food Mulunda made. The event was so beautifully set and it was at Lake House Tigoni in Limuru. The table was beautifully set and was set outdoors, unfortunately it started raining.

Growing old gracefully is dignified. Lines on the face express character. You’re conceited if you “get work done.”

 Oh really?

 Ultherapy is a state-of-the-art aesthetic procedure that defies these threadbare clichés. It’s the sole non-invasive FDA-approved technology that actually lifts skin on the face, brow, neck and under the chin. In 2009, the FDA also gave Ultherapy its blessings for reduction of crepey décolletage lines. An added perk is that it stimulates collagen production. Its effectiveness has been proven in over one million applications worldwide.


 Ultherapy employs ultrasound energy that tightens skin and kickstarts collagen renewal. It does this with gentle warmth that penetrates three skin layers. Ultherapy uniquely pairs with ultrasound imaging, which allows doctors to scrutinize the treatment area from within. The procedure requires no downtime. Go on lunch break and come back a new you. It non-invasively addresses many of the same areas traditionally done under the knife.


 A good Ultherapy candidate is a woman or man, 30 to 50 years old, with aging skin on the neck, jowls or browline. Women with fine décolletage lines are a good fit for the Ultherapy Décolletage Treatment, as well. It’s also ideal for anyone who wants to extend plastic surgery results. Those who have severe laxity may need more than one session to experience the desired outcome.


 Before the session, your provider will put a topical anesthetic on the treatment area. If this needs to be augmented, you’ll receive an oral pain reliever. The treatment applicator will be placed on your skin. You may feel pinpoints of ultrasound energy penetrating your skin. This sensation will only occur during energy transmission.

 An area’s size determines the amount of time needed to treat it. About 60 to 90 minutes in-office will generally be required for the face and neck, and a chest treatment will only take about 30 minutes.


 You can expect to dive right back into your daily activities! Your skin may be flushed but the ruddiness should fade after a few hours. Tingling, tenderness, or puffiness are also normal and temporary and should resolve within about two hours.

 Regardless of Ultherapy efficacy, your skin will still be susceptible to the inevitable aging process. Several years following a session, skin again sags. Don’t worry. You can turn back time again with Ultherapy touch-up treatments.

Ultherapy is a powerful procedure that packs even more of a punch in tandem with other modalities: 


 The eyes are the first part of the face that reveal the onset of aging. Wrinkles, crows feet, hooded lids and under-eye bags are all evidence of the passing of time. Sagging lids, if uncorrected, can also obstruct vision.

 An upper eyelid lift makes eyes appear wide and youthful. Tightening the lower lid skin addresses under-eye bags, lines and creepy texture. Both procedures employ intravenous or general sedation and a discreet incision.

 Ultherapy can effectively augment eyelid lifts. It amplifies the results of eyelid surgery, with no additional downtime.


 A Vampire Facelift is not a procedure performed by Count Dracula. Instead, it’s a cosmetic technique during which a patient’s blood is drawn and processed to isolate platelet-infused plasma. Next, it’s reinjected to diminish wrinkles and promote a refreshed appearance. It’s economical and takes approximately 30 minutes in-office.

 Combined, Ultherapy and the Vampire Facelift have formidable synergy. For best results, undergo Ultherapy first, and the facelift 7 - 10 days later.


 This may sound physically impossible, but the inside-out laser neck lift is a procedure which boosts and tightens the neck from the inside out. Laser fiber is maneuvered into the neck and fat is melted. 

Like Ultherapy, the inside-out laser neck lift promotes collagen production. Each complements the other: Ultherapy tightens skin while the neck lift eliminates fat. 


 Ultherapy and fillers enhance the effects of each other. Fillers are minimally invasive injectable substances that plump up soft tissue beneath the skin. They permeate wrinkles, lines and hollows, and impart a more youthful appearance. When combined, fillers and Ultherapy deliver exemplary results. Fillers add volume and Ultherapy lifts and tightens -- it’s been suggested that in tandem, they simulate a facelift.

 Want to learn more about Ultherapy and how it can be combined with other procedures? Dr. Stephen Weber of Weber Facial Plastic Surgery would gladly schedule a consultation. As a University of Michigan fellowship-trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Weber is a member of numerous esteemed professional organizations as well as being well known for excelling in many facets of cosmetic plastic surgery, including facelifts, laser resurfacing, nasal reshaping, eye lifts and Ultherapy in Denver, CO.
