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:

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.

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.

Has anyone tried you foodz before?

Knee High boots, Why I love them and How to wear them!

Hey Guys welcome back to my blog, todays post is about my knee high boots from Duo Boots and I am absolutely loving them, I was lucky enough to be gifted them.

 

Here is the link if anyone wants to get them

Knee High Boots

These boots are super comfy and I love that you can pick the calf size so you aren’t wearing boots you have to squeeze into or that are loose around your calfs. I also love that their is in between sizes as well. I can rarely find places that do in-between sizing, does anyone else have this problem?

So here is a few inspo options for how you could wear your boots.

This is one of my favourite ways to wear the boots, I think it is flattering to all shapes as well.

This could be a knit dress, body-con dress or really any shorter dress.

Next up is this outfit styling;

17-spring-2016-menswear-street-style-12_grande

I also love the look of shorts with knee highs as well. I find boots look a lot better with dresses, shorts and skirts then they do with jeans. Jeans can make you look more stocky, especially if you are more curvy like me.

Black-Skirt-and-White-Sweater

Lucky last inspo is this outfit, as I said before I love skirts or shorts with the boots.I think this look is very classy and elegant, plus it is flattering in all sizes as well. Outfits like this dont make me feel frumpy and gross, they help shape my curves and make me more confident in my body.

I hope you liked this post, did you want to see more posts like it?

Also I am thinking of doing more body positivity posts and would love to know if you would be interested in seeing them.

Here is the link for the boots again as well if you want to get yourself some.

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.

My Everyday Beauty must have!

Hey Guys welcome back to my blog todays post is dedicated to a product I can never buy to much of…

Dry Hair Shampoo! Now if your like me and rely on dry shampoo to get you through a lazy week then this post is for you.

I have been testing out the different Klorane dry hair shampoo range and I am in love, there is one for normal, oily and dry scalps which I think is an amazing idea as I find some dry hair shampoos make my scalp quite irritated after using.

One thing I love about the Klorane dry hair shampoo is it really does give your hair that refreshed feeling and it always gives my hair a bit more volume.

Some I have used in the past just make my hair look like i’ve dumped a bag of flour on it and feels that way as well.

For all you normal hair girls you can use any of the three normal, oil control and dry scalp.

My favourite of the set is the Dry Shampoo with nettle, the nettle is added for oil control, I struggle with oily hair so it is always in need between washes so I don’t need to wash everyday.

If you struggle with a dry scalp the dry shampoo with Oatmeal is the one for you, the oatmeal soothes and moisturises your scalp while the dry shampoo refreshes your hair and adds volume.

Has anyone tried these, what do you think of them?
