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.

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my page! or welcome if your new here!

Recently, I was sent an amazing set of goodies from Goddess Nutrition. On their Site they offer supplements, accessories and also soon active wear!

In the pack they sent me they included the following;

BCAAs In Juicy Apple Flavour

Which is valued at 14.99 Pound or $26.75AUD

Pre Workout in Blue Slush Flavour

Which is Valued at 19.99 Pounds or $35.65AUD

Thermogenic Fat Burner

Valued at 14.99Pounds or $26.75 AUD

And a bunch of Sample size Proteins

Valued at 1.99Pound each or $3.55AUD

I wanted to make sure I gave them a massive try before I shared my experience with you so I tested them for the last 2 weeks; On my gym days I used the Fat Burner, Appetite Suppressors, Pre workout and then Protein. Then on my rest days I had the Fat Burner, Appetite Suppressors and BCAAs.

For this review, I will separately review each product; talking about the benefits of the products, what I like/What I would change and the taste.

BCAAS:

What are BCAAs’

  1. They Promote Protein Synthesis
  2. Stops your muscles breaking down and getting used for energy
  3. They can make you feel less tired

For the BCAAs I got the flavour, Juicy Apple.

The flavour isn’t very strong and is slightly powdery but still easy to drink, I definitely noticed a difference in my recovery time while using them as well.

What I love; Faster recovery time so I can get the most of my workouts!

What I would Change; I wish the flavour was a little sweeter

Taste; 7/10

Results; 9/10

 

Pre Workout:

What is the point of pre workout?

Pre-workout is made up from a combination of ingredients directly related to increasing performance. It is designed as a drink to have before training to give you more energy to be able to work out harder for longer.

Ingredients included;

  • Beta Alanine – 3g
  • Creatine – 3g
  • Caffeine – 200mg
  • BCAA – 1g
  • Arginine – 0.4g
  • Glutamine – 0.4g

For the Pre Workout I got the Blue Slush Flavour. Blue Slush made me think of Blueberries; it didnt taste like blueberries but it was really nice and actually tasted like those blue slush puppies you can get!

What I love; I felt a buzz really quickly and I didnt crash hard either! Plus I got multiple PBs while using it.

What I would change; took a bit of effort to mix through but thats not uncommon.

Taste; 9/10

Results; 10/10

 

Appetite Suppressors and Fat Burner Capsules:

What do appetite suppressors do?
Appetite suppressors help to increase the serotonin levels in your brain in order to suppress your body’s hunger cravings. Appetite Suppressors are useful for when you need to cut your daily calorific intake down. Combining appetite suppressors with a healthy diet and regular exercise regime will help you to reduce your caloric intake, and therefore lose weight as they help your body to stop thinking it needs to over-eat.

What does Thermogenic Fat burner do?
Thermogenesis is the process of burning calories to produce heat. Taking thermogenic fat burners increases your natural level of burning calories and therefore increases your metabolic rate. This means you will be burning more calories than you would have done naturally. Thermogenic Fat Burners are also known to help give you an energy boost!

How were they;

I use them both in conjunction and really do notice a difference; the capsule form is easy to swallow and doesn’t give me heart burn like I have experienced with other fat burners or appetite suppressors before. The fat burner has a detox effect I find, which I think makes it more obvious its working.

Taste; no taste but easy to swallow

Results; 10/10

 

Protein Samples;

How does their protein effect the body?
Protein is essential in the human body and for overall health and well-being. It is a nutrient that breaks down to repair and grow strong bones, muscles, hair, skin and organs. Protein is one of the major structural components found in every cell of your body. It expends more energy digesting than carbohydrates or fats which means that people consuming more protein may see faster fat loss than someone on a low-protein diet. If you find yourself hungry all day you are potentially not eating enough protein. Protein takes longer to digest then carbs or fats so should keep you feeling fuller for longer. While you can get protein from meats, dairy, eggs and fish (or legumes, nuts and seeds for vegetarians) it is widely believed that an active person requires more protein than the average person, particularly for muscle recovery. This is where Protein shakes come in!

Flavours I tried;

Banana Marshmallow, Belgian Chocolate, Coconut Ice-cream, Strawberries and cream and Vanilla milkshake for the Complete recovery shakes and Gingerbread cupcake and Raspberry cheesecake for the slimming meal replacement. They are all easy to drink and mix well, they keep me full and don’t make me bloated! They are also Vegetarian friendly and gluten free.

Favourite Flavour; Strawberries and cream

Least Fave Flavour; Vanilla milkshake; still delicious but a lot more boring compared to the other flavours.

Taste; 9/10

Results; 9/10

You Foodz, my most recent order and review

Hey guys so if you’ve followed me for a while you would know that I order from you foodz quite regularly, I think their meals are amazing I am yet to find a meal prep company that can compare. The meals are a great size without being super high in calories; there is a massive variety of meals you can get, as well as snacks. 

The protein mint slice is to die for, I could eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner! 

This weeks favourite meal is; the YFC chicken and slaw which is what my photo is! I think my favourite thing about you foodz is the amount of time it saves me, meal prep can take up so much time; especially if you are cooking every night! 

Plus it makes it easier to keep up with the calories you are consuming if you struggle to lose weight like I do. The You foodz meals have really helped me get back into my regular routine and start working off all the weight I gained while studying because I was always eating take out 😭

In the four months while studying I probably gained about 5kgs and it made me feel disgusting! Getting back on real food and portioned meals has made a crazy difference, in a week I had lost about 3kgs because my body was carrying so much water weight from eating bad and not getting any exercise. I have now lost about 5kgs of fat but I have gained some muscle. 

The biggest difference I can see is in my body itself though, and how I feel about it. My stomach has started to flatten and debloat, my face is getting more slim and my skin has started to clear up ( except for one evil pimple that has just popped up over night 😭).

I definitely can’t wait to see more results in myself, because seeing even the slightest change has made me so much happier. 

If you guys are wanting to try your foodz the link below will get you one free meal 💁🏼. And if you get your free meal I get a free meal too. 

You foodz
Has anyone tried you foodz before?

What did you think? And what’s your favourite meal? 

Hypoxi, is it worth the price tag? First Week done and dusted, what did I think?

Hey guys, Welcome back to my blog. Todays post is about the experience so far that I have had with Hypoxi Hope island/ Enhance Wellness Clinic over the last week. So far I have done 3 sessions with them and over the next three weeks I will do another 9 sessions. Although I wont provide before and after pictures and measurements till the last post.

To start off, I have tried three of the machines so far; the Vacunaut+ dermology , the s120 and the L250. Each Machine has its own use and targeting areas.

The Vacunaut + Dermology targets stubborn fat around:

– Stomach and hips

The S120 Targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:

– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

The L250 targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:
– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

None of the machines are very strenuous the whole session takes around 30-35 minutes. For the first three sessions I started by doing 15 minutes in the vacunaut, then 20 minutes in either the S120 or the L250. I find the L250 a lot harder then the S120 you feel it more in your Bum and thighs. After the three sessions I have to say I can really feel it working, the lower half of my body really feels like I have put it to work. Afterwards I feel really refreshed and ready for the day ahead. The only downside to the treatment is avoiding any carbs for most of the day, I find it makes me feel a little bit light headed.

I will keep you posted on how the next few weeks go, let me know if there are any questions you have about the sessions or my results. Don’t forget to follow my blog to see all my posts.

Clarins Multi active Day and Night Cream. Is this a must have?


I am forever searching for the perfect day and night creams. As a beauty blogger I have tried tonnes, but only ever found a few I would truely recommend. I have been trying out three products from Clarins over the last few weeks including the new multi active Day cream, Multi Active day lotion and Multi Active Night cream.

The first thing I noticed with these creams is how a small amount of cream goes a long way, so keep this in mind if you have these creams or plan on getting them. I find all good quality creams have this, and I believe it is really important in a cream, especially an expensive one. So these creams are quite pricey, the day cream and lotion are $62AUD each and the night cream is $68. All three products have a sort of spicy floral smell (sorry I am terrible at describing smells) as I said before as well, go a long way and they absorb really well as well. I dont find they leave too much of an oily finish, the night cream is a bit oilier then the day cream, which is pretty common.

One thing I really love about this cream is the radiance it gives my skin while using it. Even after a few days of use, I found my skin looked less pale and sickly when I woke up and more bright and fresh.

Overall, I really think these creams are worth the buy, honestly I dont think you need both the day cream and the lotion, the lotion has a less oily feel so if thats something you prefer then the lotion is the better option for you. There is a few options for the day cream you can get an all skin types lotion and cream, combination gel and dry cream. The night has one for combination and dry skin which I think is a great idea for more brands to do as well.

Has anyone tried this cream before? What did you think?

As well guys how much do you normally spend on skincare items, do you want some budget buy ideas for skincare?

 

Fresh Meals 2 U Review!

Food

Hey guys,

I was lucky enough to get to test out the meals from Fresh Meals 2 U.

I am almost finished my first week out of two and I am absolutely loving it! It is so easy just pulling a meal out of the fridge, heating it up, eating, then just chucking the container. No dishes, nothing!

For breakfast I picked The big breakfast for 4 days and eggs benedict for 3 days. out of those two the eggs benedict was a definite winner. They were both really delicious but the eggs benedict was just amazing. It came with a big thick ham steak, two eggs, spinach and then the sauce, which was delicious. I was a bit bummed that the eggs weren’t runny, but it wasn’t a big deal to me. I couldnt get enough of it by the end of the week. My second week of meals is definitely going to be 7 days of eggs benedict.. Yum!

For the Lunches and Dinners, so far I have tried Sweet and sour pork, super lean salmon, Angus beef and baked potato with pulled pork. The Salmon is probably my favourite, they were all really nice. They all have great serving sizes and aren’t  high in calories. Out of these four, the sweet and sour pork was my least favourite, I found it was spicy, but sweet and sour pork shouldn’t be spicy.

I also tried two of the Snacks; the chocolate protein balls and the raw superfood bar. The chocolate protein balls were really nice, they tasted like fudge.. YUM! The raw superfood bar wasn’t as nice; I have never really been a fan of seeds, but it was still nice.

So if you guys had any questions about these meals, or questions for me. Just leave a comment and I will answer.
