Pranamat, review and first impression!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!

I am so excited to share with you another review post. This time I will be reviewing the pranamat eco. Pranamat ECO features dozens of lotus-shaped massage stimulators that put gentle pressure on your problem areas to relieve minor aches and pains. Plus they use 100% natural and eco-friendly materials.

Here is the link to their site

Pranamat

Below is an example of what the mat looks like.

It was nothing like I expected, I was so nervous to lay down the first time, thinking it would hurt but it didn’t at all. It was almost soothing.

I found myself feeling more relaxed.

I normally spend around 15 minutes laying on it and get off toasty warm and red and feeling calm.

The reason I was so interested in trying the pranamat is because of the benefits they could bring.

These being;

– increasing your energy levels

– helping with depression and stress

– acting as a powerful pain killer

– easing muscle spasms, reducing muscle tension, and easing spinal problems

– compensating for lack of physical activity (e.g. plane flights, prolonged travel by car, prolonged work at the computer, illnesses connected with immobility)

– helping to improve metabolism and help to reduce fat and cellulite

After ordering the pranamat it didn’t take long to arrive, and came in perfect condition ready to use. I have now been using the mat 3-4 times a week for the last two weeks and definitely am noticing a difference in my stress levels and overall happiness, I am working more and harder but feel less stressed and more happy.

I honestly was sceptical when I first read about it but I can’t wait to continue using it and seeing even more of the benefits from regular use.

How it works:

The Pranamat uses the principles of acupressure and reflexology, and works on the idea that the tiny lotus spikes stimulate active nerve centres and intensify the local blood flow and lymph circulation.

This then causes the release of endorphins which act as a natural pain killer and happiness hormone that are effective in blocking pain, and producing analgesia and a overall sense of wellbeing.

More information can be found on their website as well.

Review:

What I like about it; I see a real difference in even just one use.

What I don’t like; nothing except you have to be careful getting off cause I grazed my elbow (mainly cause I am clumsy)

Overall thoughts: this mat could be my saving grace, as someone who works a lot and doesn’t get a lot of free time, I find I get quick results and definitely notice more energy and less stress.

I would give it a 9/10

You definitely have to be a patient person to use it but it definitely makes a difference.

Where you can buy one:

Pranamat there is the link. They are currently on sale and come in a range of colours and packs!

If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I can answer them!

What did you think?

Sculpsure; Review, results and where to get it done!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my blog, over the last few months Ive been trialling the Sculpsure sessions at The Gold Coast Medical Precinct in Varsity Lakes. They have been amazing and so helpful sharing all the science behind sculpsure for me.

Here is a little video as well incase you want to know more.

Sculpsure Video

To start off I wanted to share a bit of info about Sculpsure; who its for, how it works and so on!

How It Works and the side effects;

The sessions take 25 minutes per area, there isn’t really any side effects; the main one is after the session for a week your fat is a bit tender and has to be massage regularly.

Info on it;

Minimal absorption in dermis leaves skin’s surface unharmed

Contact Cooling™ enhances patient comfort

Feathering of heat spread provides natural-looking results

Up to 24% fat reduction in multisite trials of over 100 patients

Mild and transient side effects

HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN RESUME NORMAL ACTIVITIES?

There is no downtime with SculpSure, so you can be treated during your lunch hour and return to work afterwards.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Most patients start to see results within 6 weeks, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks. I could see mine before 6 weeks and could see it even more after my second session.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Fat cells are permanently destroyed during the treatment. The destroyed fat is then processed by the lymphatic system and naturally eliminated from the body. Once the fat leaves the body, it is gone forever!

My Results and Experience;

I was really impressed with my results, I went in not really expecting any results but definitely saw results. The treatment itself takes 25 minutes and is quite uncomfortable, not unbearable but definitely uncomfortable. It goes through hot and cold sensations and at its worst on my stomach it almost felt like bad period pains. Each session and area felt slightly different and was more bearable if i just distracted myself with my phone and didn’t think about the pain. I found talking made the pain worse because I wasn’t fully distracted. Here is my results. On the top left is before my first treatment, bottom left is before the second and the one on the right is before my third treatment.

Costs, Review, others results and similar treatments and costs;

So for each session it costs an average of $700 per session and they recommend 2 or more sessions for the best results.

My Shop and Box experience! Costs, benefits and overall is it worth it? Plus giveaway sneak peek.. 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog. 

Today’s post is about my shop and box experience and haul! 

So I had the chance to try shop and box myself this month and I decided to check out Sephora US and Ulta as they are one of the two most well known makeup shops and are known to have some awesome sets and exclusive palettes.

This is what I got:

I got the Urban decay vice palette 

Which actually isn’t sold in Australia 

The smashbox light it up collection 

Rrp is 66Aud

Lorac dance till dawn palette which is an ulta exclusive and can’t be bought in Australia 

Then the Sephora favourites extravagant eyes which also isn’t sold in Australia Which gave you $134US(175aud) value for $42Us (55Aud). 


When using shop and box all you have to do is add items to a Wishlist you can pick from 29 different countries. I have used shop and box before but decided to shop from the US this time. I had boxer Yan, who was amazing they even gave me a little sample bag with my order which I thought was so sweet. When you order from shop and box you don’t need to pick just one shop you can use multiple, once your boxer receives the items they post photos on your chat so you can see they are in tact. 

Once your items are bought, You then proceeded with Invoice 2 the service fee which ranges between 10-14% with the fee the more you spend, the lower the service fee tier + international shipping

Once it’s all paid, DHL shipping takes 3 days from the US to your doorstep. I was so happy with how quick it all got to me and so well packaged as well. I will Definitely be shopping with them again. I have attached some more photos of the things I got so you can have a closer look. Also I will be giving away a Lorac palette and a shop and box experience on my Instagram so make sure you check it out

Has anyone shopped with shop and box before? What did you think if you did?

Do you guys like seeing hauls would you like to see more? 

New Year, New Me? My Blogging and Personal Goals for this year plus a recap of the year past. 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, or if this is the first time reading one of my posts then welcome. Today’s post is both playful and serious. Now we are in a new year there are a few things I want to change both blog wise and also in my personal life. Some of the things I aim for this year are things I should have done years ago but I am really hoping this year will be different. Firstly I will start off with a recap of 2016. 

Recap of 2016

So to be blunt this year had its ups and downs, but mainly downs. My mum was diagnosed with cancer and my mental state hasn’t been the best. 

On the upside I’ve got to spend another year with the love of my life, my soul mate. He has been the biggest support to me in every way and I am so lucky to have him in my life. 

Personal Goals

I have a few personal goals for the year. Firstly like most people I want to get in shape this year, though I’m not going to pretend that I am going to cut out all sugar or eat no bad foods (because I really love food 😍 ) but I will try to eat less of the bad stuff. 

Secondly it’s my goal to make a friend this year, a close friend. In the past my anxiety has made it really hard to make friends but I want to change that. I’ve spent too long relying on my boyfriend to talk to, but sometimes you really need another girl to talk to. Someone I can talk makeup with and have a girls night with.  

Lastly, I want to feel confident in my own skin. I want to be able to go to the beach in a bikini without feeling disgusting. I want to be able to show off my scar, because it’s the reason I am here today. I want to embrace my stretchmarks and my cellulite because they are apart of me, and what makes me. 

Blogging Goals

I have a lot of blogging goals for this year but I will keep it short so you guys don’t get bored. 

Firstly, by the end of this year I want to have 45k followers on Instagram and 500 followers on here. I want to focus more of both my blog posts and I want to post regular video reviews, swatches, looks and also my daily life. 

Also, I’ve gotten to work with some really amazing companies in the last year but there are a few companies I am aiming to get to work with by the end of this year. Including Mecca Maxima, Sephora, Colourpop and Becca cosmetics. I recently started working with Bobbi Brown cosmetics and Mac Cosmetics and it is honestly a dream come true, I hope to have some more dreams come true this year. 
Thank you for reading guys, I hope you enjoyed. Let me know what your goals are this year, both blogging and personal. Let me know what you thought of my goals as well. 💕


Travel Cheap with Travel Cat 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog!

Todays post is all about how I am using Travel Cat Flights to plan my next holiday. I have been looking all around for the best deals to plan my next holiday and came across Travel Cat. After a look around their site I was amazed. They have so many amazing deals available and so easily accessed. 

Travel Cat Flights is a site where you can access all the best flight deals without having to try. There are two options you can sign up for free, which allows you to get access to about 1/3 of the deals available or for only $5 a month you can get them all. On average people save $592 with Travel Cat on one flight, so $5 a month is nothing compared to what you could save each year.

How it works?

If you are like me, you have seen on the news about those crazy airline deals after the airline made a silly mistake, and all those people went to that destination you have been dying to go to for years. Next time you can be one of those lucky ones, Travel Cat has people working on the inside who notify them of these deals before they even go public, so we get to go on the flights we have always wanted.

Travel Cat saves you on flights departing from tonnes of Major cities; Brisbane, Sydney, New York, Los Angeles, London, Aukland and many more..

To prove how amazing they are here are some examples of previous deals;

L.A to Shanghai for $398


New York to Phuket for $588

Here is the link to their website so make sure to check them out, I know I am definitely going to be signing up.

Dietlicious 5 day cleanse review!

Hey guys,

 

welcome back to my blog. For the last week I have been trying the 5 day cleanse from dietlicious. The cleanse is meant to detox your body from things such as dairy, and so on. By doing this you spark your metabolism, which obviously helps with weight loss. In the five days I lost about 3kgs and felt a lot less bloated, had more energy and saw an improvement in my skin. Most days include a smoothie for breakfast as well as a protein ball or trail mix. Lunch consisted of curries or fish and stir fry vegetables or things similar to this.

I really loved all of the meals, they were also great sized meals. I had to have the fish meals as dinner because you had to cook them instead of just microwaving. But that isnt really a big deal. I have wanted to try a cleanse for so long and I am definitely glad I got to. I am going to be doing another 5 day cleanse from dietlicious so keep your eyes peeled. Has anyone tried this meal company before? What did you think? Also would you guys like to see a before and after for my next cleanse?
