Blackbough Swim! Try on haul and review!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog! Todays Blog Post is a haul and try on of some of the newest Blackbough Swim Collections. I have previously done a try on haul for you guys so I thought you guys would like an updated one!

I got 5 pairs from their website:

Black flint – Maui Top and ant minimal bottoms

Miami nights – Tona twist top and Izzy bottoms

Wild cat – tallulah top and classic bottoms

Lilac – Izzy top and coco high waisted bottoms

Cotton candy pink – willow top and Brooke bottoms

The collection is really well priced; Each piece is around $40US, Some being $45, then the one pieces are $85US. The pieces are comfortable and supportive, and they are also flattering.

Here is a little try on of each pair;

First up is the Black flint – Maui Top and ant minimal bottoms;

For this set i loved the bottoms but didn’t think the thicker style of the top matched, i think next time ill get a top that suits more. Both the top and bottoms for this set were comfortable and were very true to size. I loved this pattern and i will definitely get it in other styles!

Next up is the Wild cat – tallulah top and classic bottoms, this was one of my favourite sets. The pattern was bold, the style was flattering and so comfortable! I also love that the bottoms look good on your hips or pulled up.

next up is Miami nights – Tona twist top and Izzy bottoms

I wanted to love this set but the bottoms ruined it for me, i loved the pattern and the idea of the style but the bottoms definitely didnt look good on me. I loved the top and it looked good on, but no matter what i did the bottoms just dug in and made me look frumpy. I would love to see what they look like on everyone else though, so if you have then let me know.

next up is the Cotton candy pink – willow top and Brooke bottoms

I have had this style before but in black and I love it even more in the pink. Not only does the pink make me look more tanned, the set itself is so comfy and flattering.

lastly, the Lilac – Izzy top and coco high waisted bottoms

This top was my absolute favourite, i want it in every colour, and i also want the lilac in every style!

At first when i got the full brief bottoms, i didn’t like them but they are growing on me. Do you guys prefer cheeky or full bottoms?

I am so in love with all the bikinis I was sent, there’s nothing worse then buying a bikini that is uncomfortable and unflattering. This is the second time I have gotten bikinis from them and I have loved them all!

Enticing candles! Review and reveal! Plus a giveaway!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog.

Today’s post is a review and ring reveal for the two enticing candles products I was sent to try.

I got the berry infusion and the coconut paradise ring candles.

The candles cost $52.95, Both with the chance to get a ring worth between $10 and $1150. Overall they are such good value because candles themselves are expensive but you also get the added bonus of exciting presents inside!

So the two rings I got ended up having equal values both being worth $99 so I got way more then my worth. They are both gorgeous rings as well and I picked my size perfect!

These are the rings I got with each candle!

I can definitely see how people get addicted to collecting the rings. The second I saw which rings I got I wanted to buy more candles and bathbombs to try find one worth the most!

They are such a great idea and honestly it’s a win win, even if you get a ring worth $10 you get a beautiful smelling candle!

The candles do take quite a while to get down to the jewellery but you can use tweezers to grab it quicker if you are impatient like me.

Overall I give the candles a 9/10 they could be a little stronger smelling, but they are amazing value, they are beautifully designed and made!

I can definitely see myself collecting more. Has anyone bought one before? What ring did you get? Show me in the comments!

Also I have a giveaway running on my insta!

Esmi Skincare; Review and Tips for using them!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog, I have been trying to be more active with my Blog Posts, so I hope you guys are liking them. Let me know what you want to see more of. I am also hoping to start Youtube again so let me know if there is any videos you want to see.

Todays review is of the Esmi Skincare skin treats!

I tried out the Exfoliating Charcoal Serum, Brightening Serum and the Anti Redness serum as well. The charcoal one came with a buffing brush as well.

Reviews; 

Overall;

They work well under makeup, leave the skin feeling fresh and give instant visual results on the skin.

For the charcoal serum you have to use the buffing brush otherwise you will have a dark tint on the skin. I noticed my skin did purge a bit after the first week of using it. Then it settled down and my skin was left soft and clear. The anti redness serum is a minty serum and left my skin feeling cool and fresh under my makeup too. The brightening serum was fresh and worked great under my eyes to brighten my dark circles.

The Anti redness was probably my favourite serum, it gave the most visual results and left my skin feeling amazing.

My least favourite would be the charcoal, mainly because it really had to be buffed into the skin if you weren’t wearing makeup otherwise it kind of looked like muddy fake tan.

What I rate Them;

Charcoal; 9/10 

Brightening; 8/10

Anti Redness: 9/10

Blackbough Swim; haul, unboxing and try on!

Hey Guys,

Welcome back to my Blog! Todays Blog Post is a haul and try on of some of the Blackbough Swim Collections.

I got 3 pairs and a one piece from their site:

  • Daisy Daze – Tallulah Top and Maui Bottoms
  • Candy Cane- Kylie One Piece
  • Red – Stassy Top and Stassy Cheeky Bottoms
  • NY Noir – Willow Top and Stassy Bottoms

The collection is really well priced; Each piece is around $40US, Some being $45, then the one pieces are $85US. The pieces are comfortable and supportive, and they are also flattering.

Here is a little try on of each pair;

Here is the NY Noir willow top and stassy bottoms.

I love the shape of the bottoms and the top, they are comfortable and flattering. These bottoms are probably my favourite overall in both colours I got them in. I think they are more flattering to my body shape and don’t make me look chunky.

Next up is the one piece. It is so comfortable and well made, the pattern isn’t very flattering on my body shape but I still love it. I think next time I will go for a plain one piece though.

Next is one of their newer styles; the daisy daze set. This one is probably my favourite. I wish I got the cheekier bottoms in this set though. I am definitely going to be investing in more of their bikinis because they are amazing quality. Here is the back of this bikini.

Lucky last is the Red bikini.

I love the shape of this bikini as well, it took a little while getting used to the low front bottoms but now I love them!

This is the back;

I am so in love with all the bikinis I was sent, there’s nothing worse then buying a bikini that is uncomfortable and unflattering.

Which is your favourite of my haul? I love the Daisy Daze!

Trying out Goddess Nutrition!

IMG_3358_Facetune_05-02-2018-10-50-00

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

Appetite Suppressors

Valued at 9.99 Pounds or 17.82AUD

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

My Latest Overseas Haul! How Much Money Did I Save?

Hey Guys, welcome back to my page. If you have been following me for a while you would know I love using shipping services to save money on products, people like me in Australia pay a fortune for; as well as products they don’t sell in Australia.

For this Haul I used the site The Luxe Link, which I will link at the bottom of the page.

The Luxe Link is a service, and not a reseller of luxury goods. They are a shopping concierge based in New York City, that provides access to America’s online and traditional retailers. I used the service to access Nordstorm and their amazing deals and limited edition products.

In my haul I got;

  • Hourglass ambient lighting palette 3 $80US
  • Mac Prep and Prime Fixing Spray $25US
  • Mac Look in a Box Early to Red $36.50
  • Mac Viva Glam 1 and 3 $17.50US Each

Total:

$176.50US = $229.70 AUD

Worth in Australia:

  • Hourglass ambient lighting palette 3 (Currently Unavailable in Australia so US transferred to AUD) $104.15AUD
  • Mac Prep and Prime Fixing Spray $36AUD
  • Mac Look in a Box Early to Red $99AUD
  • Mac Viva Glam 1 and 3 $36AUD Each

Total: $311.15AUD

Meaning when you order with them you are saving $81.45AUD on the products you buy!

I don’t know about you but that makes Service fees so worth it for shipping services and makes me want to buy more from America, it also makes me want to move to America!

Has anyone used shipping services before? Did you get any amazing deals?

Also I have been given a code for if you guys want to make an order with them yourself, i don’t make any money off it.

https://www.theluxelink.com
https://www.theluxelink.com/request/
The code is “JADE” and you will get $50US off your sale over $200US. The code will be valid till December 31st.

If you make an order let me know what you get!

 

My Ry.com.au haul! Unboxing And review! 

Hey guys welcome back to my page,

This post will be talking about both the Skinstitut  products I have recently tried as well as my experience with Ry.com.au and their service. 

I have shopped with ry.com.au quite a few times, they have a massive variety of products from makeup to skincare to haircare and wellness products; they also recently opened an area for makeup artists to shop for pro products. 

Here is the link to Ry;

Ry.com.au
They are always having different promotions and sales, they have afterpay (do I really need to say more!), they do free shipping over $99 and they price match 👌🏻

They stock over 250 brands including so many of my favourites!

So for the products themself I got four products from skinstitut 

– moisture defence for normal skin 

– the hydrating mask

– multi active oil 

– multi active mist 

They are all amazing products; on ry I will leave there pricing below. As well they currently have 33% off skinstitut so make sure you take advantage of that;

All four are priced; 

Normally $45

Currently $30.15

My favourite out of them all is the multi active mist it is so good for cooling your face in the summer as well as refreshing you, it’s great as a priming spray for your face as well as after makeup to help set it. 

The hydrating mask has also been perfect getting my skin back into shape after the winters damage and also to prep my skin for the warmer weather to come. I have combination skin and the weather recently has set it off like crazy, I am like a scaly lizard so I’ve been using this twice a week to help bring the moisture back into my skin! 

Do you have any favourite skinstitut products to try? 

and have you shopped with ry before?

If you have let me know how your shop went! 

Also let me know what you want me to post about next!?!
