Transformula's Launching Two New Amazing Products


I've been a long time fan of the Transformula's brand and love that they combine science with beauty. There are very few brands that do this that I actually adore (Fountain Supplements being the other) and that don't break me out in a horrible rash. Having previously reviewed a few of their products which I was really impressed with, I was so excited to hear Tranformula's announcement that they'll be launching two new products that will fit under the Marine Beauty range umbrella.  

The products launching will be: 
Miracle Daily Glycol Priming Cleanser // Glycolic acid helps to get rid of dead skin cells that clog the epidermis and, helps to stimulate new production of healthy skin cells. Lactic acid is an AHA (alpha-hydroxy acid) which is a trend ingredient for sure but for good reason. It also helps to slough away nasties that clog the skin leaving it looking dull and tired, it deeply cleans your pores and promotes collagen growth while regulating the good and bad bacteria that help to promote healthy skin. Glycerin is one of the best humectants as it helps to keep your skin hydrated while providing it with some protective emollient properties. 

Finally, you'll also find Witch Hazel (Hamamelis Virginia) which is one of my all time favourite ingredients as it's antibacterial, astringent and excellent for tightening up the skin. It's easy to see why this primer isn't a standard run of the mill primer. 
Marine Miracle EyeZone // Reduction of dark circles, slower ageing effects, reduced puffiness and fresher looking skin are the apparent benefits of this product. The key ingredient is Aldavine which combines two algae polysaccharides as well as DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol) to bring about a positive change of appearance around your eye area. This product also has Trehalose which helps to retain water and keep the eye area hydrated, Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone which helps to improve circulation, lymphatic drainage and increase elasticity. 

Sounds too good to be true doesn't it. 


If you wanted to check out some of my older Transformula's reviews you can find them here: Radiant-Lift Mask (here), Eye Lightening and Eye Lifting (here) and Youthful Hands (here). 
These are older reviews which always make me squirm when I look back on them as my style and writing style have changed so much over the years. Regardless of the changes the thoughts and opinions of each product still remain intact and that's why I really want to try these products out, especially the primer. 
What are your thoughts on products that mix science with beauty?

Ways to Ensure Your Party Makes an Impact!

If you’re throwing a party, you want to be sure that it makes an impact on all of your guests. To do this, you need to plan carefully beforehand. It doesn’t matter whether you’re having a house party or a big party in a fancy venue, these tips will help you. Take a look and see what you think:

Make a Playlist

The playlist is going to determine the atmosphere of your party, so it needs to be good if you want to make an impact. Create it well in advance so you can keep on adding songs to it if you need to. You can easily make a playlist using Spotify - you can even find some ready made playlists! However, it might be better if you create your own so you can personalise it to the party. You could put some of the guests favourite songs on there, for example. If you don’t have Spotify, use a blank CD and do it the old fashioned way. Just make sure you make it long enough to last the duration of the party, so you don’t have the same songs repeating over and over again. 

Focus on the Decor

The decor is another huge element that will affect the atmosphere of the party. If you want it to make an impact, the decor needs to reflect the sort of event you’re trying to put on. If you’re throwing an upmarket shindig, you’ll need to look into things like chair cover hire to get the expensive look you want. If you’re throwing more of a fun event, then lots of balloons and banners could be just what you need. Make a plan for the decor. You could even theme it if you like! 

Arrange Entertainment

Entertainment isn’t always necessary at a party. I mean, people are pretty good at entertaining themselves, especially when alcohol is involved. However, it might be a good idea to arrange a little entertainment depending on the party. You could hire a bouncy castle, a photo booth, or a live act. Whatever you think will match the theme of the party.

Serve Great Food

Great food can take an OK party to a great party! People love food. They especially love it when you can put a spin on traditional boring party food. You could try to think of new, exciting ways to create the party food to keep people interested and get them talking. You could even get a caterer if your budget stretches that far. Food is always the way to people’s hearts. 

Don’t Run Out of Drink

The key at any good party is not to run out of drink. If you’re supplying the booze, make sure you have enough to keep everybody going. You don’t want to have to make last minute dashes to the shop! If there’s a bar at the venue, make sure they have enough to keep everybody happy.

Above all else, make sure everybody is having a good time. Get them talking. Be a great host!

Nutty For Nutella || Crazy Festive Gift Ideas


Nutty For Nutella


In the run up to Christmas you're going to see a ton of wish lists, a ton of shopping guides and recommendations to buy things that are the same as every other shopping guide on every other blog. While I can appreciate a cute shopping guide I also appreciate guides that host a variety of weird and wacky gift ideas because let's face it, we all have that inner kooky-weirdo somewhere inside us. 

Maybe you have a BFF who's into Coca-Cola, maybe your boyfriend's into HP Sauce or maybe your sister loves Nutella. Well I have one of those covered - this gift guide tackles gifts for the nutty Nutella lady [or gent]. 

Nutella's tastes delicious as icing on cupcakes and inside sandwich cakes, on toast and even just spooned out of the jar - don't tell me you haven't whipped out a jar and a spoon? Well, the first gift idea is a super large jar of the good stuff, who wouldn't love that? Not into that or your special someones a bit more special? Why not upgrade the 750 g jar for a mega sized 3k bucket of the sweet spread. 3 kg imagine the sugar high you'd get from that. 

Wowsers. Get your dentist on speed dial guys. 

I'd recommend teaming on of those jars with either the cute tee or the incredibly wild sweater. The tee being the safer option of course. The thing is even if the sweater looks OTT if you size up so that's it's slouchy it would look fab with some black skinny jeans and some casual shoes. 

Don't know your bestie's clothing size then there's always the hamper option where you could compile a few themed products in a cute box or basket. The cookbook contains lots of useful recipes, the Nutella Stretcher ensures you get every single drop of chocolate spread out of the jar (overall that knife alone will save you money because you're getting to use up all of your Nutella) and the Nutella B-Ready bread with chocolate spread inside would be great options. I’d also search out a chocolate scented candle and add some Ferrero Rocher chocolates too. 

Who's feeling hungry?
