Why everyone is talking about Punch Skin care

punchmoisturizer

I must be living under a rock, because this amazing skin care product, Punch Skin care, almost slipped under my radar. I noticed it on Amazon and one of the first things that stood out were its rave review. Everyone seems to love this product! With my curiosity peaked, I had to find out what made Punch so special.

Now, Punch Skin care has a line of different products, but I’m focussing on the moisturizer.

Looking at the ingredients, I could tell this was a premium product. To list just a few of the good for your products found in this moisturizer: organic witch hazel, organic grape seed extract, organic sesame seed extract, Vitamin A, and dandelion leaf extract. No wonder people were seeing amazing skin transforming results. These ingredients on their own can do wonders for the skin. But combined they greatly improve the look and feel of your skin.

How can Punch Moisturiser help your skin?

1. Cell Renewal: This moisturizer contains small protein peptides that stimulate cell renewal and strengthen collagen fibres. This is important in fighting the ageing process. As we get older, our skin loses it’s elasticity but with the help of these protein peptides you can give your skin a more toned appearance, which makes it look fuller, firmer, and younger.

2. Antioxidants: Young or old, female or male,  everyone needs to be concerned with stimulating antioxidant production in your skin. It is not only important for keeping your skin looking healthy, but it’s essential for protecting you against sun damage. Punch Skin care kept this in mind and thus their moisturizer helps to increase natural antioxidant production.

Bonuses

This product is oil free. This is important to me because, as someone whose skin is oily and breaks out easily, I can use this worry free knowing that I’m not adding to an existing skin problem.

A little goes a long way. On amazon this product is 27.55 but don’t let that turn you off. A little goes a long way! You only need a small thumb size amount to get the effects of this moisturiser.

I’m glad I joined the band wagon on this one, and can see why so many women and men are giving it a five star rating. It’s hard to find any fault with this product or company. Give Punch a try if you are looking for a high quality moisturizer that will make your skin beautiful.

Looking Sheepish

Looking sheepish

Before I jump into the post, I am wondering if anyone else is having issues with polyvore on firefox? If so, please leaves comments below so I know it’s not just me.

Now on with the celebrations! Kung Hei Fat Choi or Happy Chinese New Year! To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to create an outfit in honour of the Year Of The Sheep. All the items above are either inspired by those cute woolly animals or made from them.

I would wear this to celebrate any festival, or just meet up with friends. The ankle boots are perfect for any occasion, while the red sheep clutch is a stylish and quirky way to acknowledge the holiday.

I hope everyone has a happy, wealthy and prosperous new year

Jewelry Closet Collection is stocked with a number of fashion forward, beautiful, and head turning jewelry to complete any outfit. Now, I’ll be honest, when I first visited the store front I was confused. But that’s because I was not familiar with the concept of members only shopping sites and all their benefits.

Shopping at a members only store like Jewelry Closet Collection allows you to find both up and coming designers as well as trendy pieces at great prices. This is done by the weekly flash sales that the site holds. These sales are fun and really give you a rush as you search for the perfect piece to complete your look at prices you’d be hard pressed to beat. It doesn’t cost a cent to become a member, so you really have nothing to lose. Whats more, joining the site can save you a bundle on your accessories and jewelries.

Shops like these make online shopping fun again. Pieces sell out fast, but that’s part of what makes it so thrilling. When you find and buy an item that is quickly going out of stock or you find a great deal on a beautiful designer piece of jewelry you feel victorious.

Maybe you’re like me and are new to membership sites, or you have always loved them; regardless I highly recommend visiting Jewelry Closet Collection. You’ll find amazing pieces and great prices.

Are you using the right hair tools?

We all want healthy shiny hair, but very often we forget that the tools  we use to achieve this is just as important as our shampoos and conditioners. Not all hair tools, such as flat irons, are the same and choosing the right one will make it easier to achieve the beautiful head of hair that you’re after. Among the list of good hair care products is a brand that is simply outstanding when it comes to giving you silky smooth hair. This brand is ISA Professional.

I’m taking note of  this brand for a few reasons.isa professionaldigital

1. Quality. I’ll be honest, this brand doesn’t have an extensive catalogue. It doesn’t need one. It’s focused on offering a few high quality hair tools that will leave your hair looking its best. For example, the ISA Professional Digital Flat Iron Hair Straightener has been built to ensure that it helps your hair, not harms it. To do this, the company used 100% Solid Tourmaline ceramic plates. Tourmaline transfers heat more evenly and quickly, allowing you to  get a just-got-back-from-the-salon look. Use it to get a sleek silky straight look or add some bound and volume to your hair.

2. Perfect for amateurs. If you struggle to get the look you want and are always warring with your hair, it very likely could be the hair tool you’re using. Hair care novices often have this problem. They opt for any old tool that is a challenge to use. ISA Professional has built in features that make it easy for anyone to get the look they want. Some of these features include:

  •   A digital temperature control–no more hard to read temperature adjuster
  • 360 no tangle cord– don’t you just hate fighting with the cord
  • 45 minute auto shut off safety feature

3. Great customer service. I always say a product is only as good as the company that backs it and ISA Professional offers great service which only enhances the brand. U.S customers can appreciate the free shipping but so can Canadians. Their products come with a two year warranty and the company can easily be contacted if you have any questions.

The hair tool you use matters if you’re seeking beautiful hair. Don’t settle on just anything. Check out ISA Professional’s collection of products to get the hair you desire.

Summer Must Have: Frankies Bikinis

Flirty, fun, fashionable: let me introduce you to Frankies Bikinis a fashion swimwear collection from Bikini Luxe that recently caught my eye. If you’re lucky enough to live in a place where warm weather is all year round then you can sport this collection right away. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait till mother nature remembers we’re bikini ready. And this collection definitely puts you in the mood for summer. It’s not often I see a collection of swimwear that is both fashionable and suitable for many different body shapes.

The collection itself is simple, but one can’t ignore the artistry in  the way the designer has made use of the strings–criss crossing, knotting and braiding them into unique and beautiful eye catching beach wear. You’ll stand out without being too flashy.

Frankies Bikinis is also timeless. Unlike other swimwear lines that are only on trend for that summer, these look as if you’ll be able to wear to them again and again without feeling outdated. This allows the collection to be appropriate for different age gaps. Whether you’re a teen or in you’re 30’s these bikinis are a great way to bring some style to your summer.

Lastly, the collection just screams summer. It’s the kind of thing I want to be seen in when the weather gets warm, sipping a cool drink by the pool or splashing around in tropical waves.

Perhaps you want to stand out at your next pool party or simply want a classic chic bikini to have on hand for vacations, Frankies Bikinis is the pick of choice and a summer must have.

The best place to look for modelling advice

modelhideout

The modelling industry is one that is often shrouded in secrecy. Unless in you’re the industry it’s difficult to know how to break in and what it takes to have professional modelling career. For years, it was like a secret club where the general public was keep at bay. Even with the advent of the internet, it still wasn’t easy to get real industry advice that was honest from real models. But thanks to a great new website called Model Hideout, the curtain that used to veil the modelling industry is being lifted.

What is Model Hideout?

Model Hideout is a unique website that is packed with information for those interested in learning more about the model industry. The site is  owned and operated by two professional models, Lisa Biffin and Keira Lewis. These two down to earth ladies have used their first hand experience and knowledge about modelling to put together a well thought out, easy to navigate website that offers tips, training, interviews, and current updates on the modelling industry.

What makes it unique?

There are a few reason why I really like this site and wanted to share it with you

1. Relateable: Lisa and Keira are both very relateable and very sweet. We sometimes get and image of models as being untouchable and simply out of touch with the real world. It all goes back to that secret club where if you weren’t already a member there was little chance of entering. But Lisa and Keira humanize not only the industry but models in general. I could relate to Lisa’s story when she spoke of feeling “clueless and out of my depth” after entering the modelling industry. I felt the same way and what’s more it was almost impossible to find any information about the do’s and don’t of the whole system. As I read the articles I could easily connect with them and their writing style, which leads me to reason two.

2. Easy to understand information: So many industry sites have articles that are filled with jargon or are simply a collection of pretty pictures. It’s as if they’re deliberately trying to be unhelpful. On model hideout, you’ll find great articles, and interesting interviews that give you a clear perspective of the industry without all the jargon and fluff.

3. Honest: The two ladies are honest about what it takes to break into the industry. They don’t sugar coat things or try to scare you either. They approach common question about weight, height, earnings with openness and honesty. There’s even information that you may not have thought about such as what types of shoes you should have in your kit, modelling after post pregnancy, or the inside scoop as to what pageants are really like.

Whether you’re hoping to become a professional model or are simply curious about the industry, I highly recommend checking out Model Hideout. Check out their book which takes you into the world of modelling and learn more about them and the industry via their social links below.
