Youth – A state of mind?

A youth is defined by the National Youth Council as someone between the ages of 15 and 35. Although being a youth is limited by age, there are no barriers to being youthful. You can be youthful regardless of your age if you have characteristics that embody a young person. Quick-witted, high energy levels and passionate are just some of the many characteristics of young people. Out of the many, which characteristics are important to you and how do you plan to achieve it even when you become 50? I think one aspect which contributes to being youthful is your appearance.

Did You Hear About The Girl With The Big Cheeks?

I chanced across this video recently which showed the girl with the biggest cheeks in the world. My first thought was: Oh my, is this just a stunt for attention? But as I watched on, I realised that she genuinely thinks she looks better with such big cheeks. Now, these big cheeks obviously did not come naturally, she had undergone multiple aesthetic procedures to achieve her current look. To enhance the volume of her cheeks, she used fillers.

Here’s shocking news! Indifferent to the consequences of having infections or getting disfigured, she injects the fillers into her face all by herself!

I don’t need to be a doctor to say that going down to a clinic to get a doctor to inject your fillers Continue Reading
