GHOST the Musical + GIVEAWAY

One of the beloved love story movies is about to hit theaters and you'll be in for a treat with the cast they have put together for the show. The movie made famous with Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.

Now to give you a run down of Ghost, if you haven't seen before; which I might add that I will be very shocked if you haven't seen it before...
Set in modern day New York City, Ghost The Musical is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Walking back to their apartment one night after a romantic dinner, Sam and Molly are mugged, leaving Sam dead on a dark street. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and unable to leave Molly, whom he learns is in grave danger. With the help of Oda Mae, a phony storefront psychic, Sam tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving and protecting her.

Tassal New Snacking Range REVIEW

Trying to keep everything together whilst on a healthy lifestyle can be hard at times. Not everything goes to plan and in everyone's lives there is always hiccups. 

Meal prepping isn't something I myself am 100% spot on for. It's definitely something on the New Years Resolutions list to be better at. There is times when I am not prepared and something unexpected pops up and it will leave me going around in circles through my head that I need to eat, but then it's I have nothing and I don't have time to make food so I end up opting for take out and if it's a rush then it means I'll be swinging past drive thru and that usually means bad food. 

Snacking doesn’t have to be hard or unhealthy – Tassal’s new snacking range is an easy, quick, delicious and healthy option for busy/active men and women who don’t want to sacrifice health for taste. 100% Australian salmon.

Tassal recently sent me out a 'Summer Fit Pack' which as we all know fitness and healthy living is right up my alley, which contained the new Tassal snacking range - Salmon and Beans, Salmon and Quinoa and Salmon and Rice which all come in a 185g easy pull off metal tin lid. 
Each kit is targeted health benefits including protein, fibre and omega 3. Tassal’s new snacking range provides a healthy, easy and delicious alternative to processed snacks.

As a busy person having on the go and ready to go foodie items are essential. Tassal have made it more simpler to opt for quick food but with it being nutritious and a healthier alternative. 
Loaded with superfoods and key food ingredients that also help to keep you fuller for longer, the Tassal snacking range is perfect in more ways than one. 

The Tassal snacking range come in handy little kits which take up little room if you were needing to stash it in your handbag or gym bag. The Tassal snacking range comes with a plastic disposable spork so you do not require any dish clean up and can be done with all the rubbish after eating. 

I do have to admit that when it came time for me to try the Tassal Salmon and Rice I was really unsure how I would go eating cold rice. The only time I have cold rice is when I am having rice pudding so having a meal that had cold rice on it made me turned off but as the saying goes 'Don't mock it till you try it' I put on the big girl panties and tested it out, I'm pleased to report back that it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, intact it wasn't bad at all and I worked myself up for nothing really. Although you could heat the meals up if you wanted too, there is no need to heat or refrigerate Tassal’s Snacking Range– simply grab and go. 

Did you know? Tassal is the only brand supplying 100% Australian grown and canned salmon to major supermarkets. Consumers have peace of mind knowing their salmon is locally (and sustainably) sourced and canned.

Consuming fish is great for your diet and is recommended to be served twice a week. Salmon is my favourite to have from the fish range and knowing that Tassal as a brand are one of the leaders within the supplier market and are sourced locally within Australia is even better. 
Tassal is known for its delicious Tasmanian grown Atlantic salmon which is now available in a new range of convenient, healthy and tasty meals for everyday Aussies who are constantly juggling work, family, health and social commitments.

The Tassal snacking range will be something that I will continue to purchase in future as they are the great back up to have within the cupboards or to have on a regular basis. 

The Tassal snacking range can be picked up from Coles now for RRP $4.29.

Zofori Elixer Launch Event

I love hearing about new brands that are launching or have been released and being able to attend an event specifically for that brand allows me to get more one on one with the brand, gaining a better understanding of their products, who they are as a brand and what they are wanting to accomplish through their products. 

 Zofori Elixer is a brand that sources products from Greece to create natural skincare products to add into your beauty regime. For someone like myself I am always more drawn to natural due to my sensitive skin.

Zofori Elixer invited me along to their launch night in which gathered a group of online media, family and friends of the founders. Held at The Grand on Princes, Mulgrave which indeed was a grand place to host guests for their launch. Everything about the room setup for the event was magnificent. 

Tables were set up with beautiful arrangements which showed the fresh ingredients that were formulated into their products. Many products fall into the Zofori Elixer range which feature exfoliators, creams for hands and body, moisturisers, hair and many more. 

We were kindly also gifted a sample goodie pack of a select few products from the Zofori Elixer range to take home with us. 

Disclosure: I was invited along to attend the event and received a complimentary gifted goodie bag at the end of the event in which contained sample Zofori products. I received no payment for this feature and all opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own.

Kryolan Official Launch Event

A little late but better then never, whilst I try to play catch up over the past few months that have gone  by as fast as lighting you will see everything from October until now.

Let's take it back to mid October when I was kindly invited along to the Official Launch Event for Kryolan who opened their first retail store doors in Melbourne at the Emporium. During that night we also celebrated their 70th year in the beauty industry. How incredible is that?
It is gobsmacking to me that they have been around 70 years and the history of cosmetics goes back that far.


The Melbourne Emporium Kryolan concept store is absolutely stunning. A gorgeous array of sooooo many shades in so many different cosmetics products lay before your eyes for you to play around with. The beams of light that glisten down on the products really make this a store that you have to stop by and check out.

Prior to this event, Kryolan was a brand known to me prior to this event as my sister is a qualified MUA (Make Up Artist) and has this in her kit, in which I have been able to play around with many times before. The error for most of us and what Kryolan are also trying to educate us all about is that they are not only for the industry users for special effects and kit only sorts of make up collections but they are a brand that can be used everyday in anyone's makeup routine.

Kryolan is a high end brand so expect to pay a little bit for their products, but as they say you don't get quality with a cheap price tag.

Kryolan invited a handful of bloggers and other industry professionals for a VIP night to celebrate and launch with the Melbourne Emporium crew. Special guest MUA - Becca Gilmartin was in attendance who gave us a demonstration of how to create some speciality looks that Becca had done before and really encourage us to play around with the products as you will be surprised in the multi-use of a product.

I was lucky enough to have my sister Katt who was invited along as MUA industry professional and then be able to bring along my beauty loving blogger friend Trang from Doaner-fide. Trang was taken up on the elevated stage for us to watch a demo on her by Becca herself.

Upon leaving the event we were gifted with a goodie bag of gorgeous samples of products as well as two full sized items to use at home. I received Glamour Glow and Ultra Foundation Trio as the full sized products in which I haven't used the Ultra Foundation Trio just yet as I want to purchase some of the Makeup Blend as the foundation trio is very thick.

The Glamour Glow is a sheer light blush, bronzer and tanning complexion all in one. It comes in a compact little kit in which has a mirror and underneath the product is a compartment to hold the mini application brush.

Thank you Kryolan for having me for the night and allowing me to see more of your range, I am sure I will be back and will be adding your products to my collection.
