Event - Alexander McQueen "Savage Beauty" 2015

London Fashion Week 2015 was a smash hit, and it got us super excited for all of the latest fashion creations we’ll get to enjoy this year. Recently at The Amazing Blog, we came across a must-see event that will keep your passion for fashion alive. The Savage Beauty by Alexander McQueen exhibit is officially coming to London after its successful run at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Savage Beauty is the first retrospective work of the late Alexander McQueen to be presented in Europe. Known for his dramatic, dark and boundary-pushing catwalk collections, the designs will be presented with the same cutting-edge staging as his runway shows.

In New York, Savage Beauty became one of the top 10 most visited exhibitions, appealing viewers beyond the normal fashion demographic. If fashion isn’t exactly your cup of tea, it’s still a worthy exhibit to check out. The New Yorker wrote, "Even if you never bother with fashion shows, go to this one." 

The exhibition is currently on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum and will run until 2nd August 2015. You can view ticket details and information here.

Sunescape Tanning Products

We here at The Amazing Blog love having sun-kissed skin. Since traditional tanning can increase your risk for skin cancer and premature ageing, we rely on self-tanning products to get the glowing skin we crave. That’s why we love the easy to use tanning products from Sunescape so we can rock a bronze skin tone all year round.

With their Hydrating Self-Tanning Mousse, you’ll get the glow you crave in only a few minutes. The colour is natural-looking and comes in two different shades designed to fit your skin tone, so you don’t need to worry about looking orange! It even hides cellulite and stretch marks while giving you colour, so this mousse will become your new beauty BFF. It contains macadamia, avocado and coconut oils, so your skin will stay smooth and conditioned.

For a long-lasting tan, reach for the Hydrating Gradual Tan Extender to build or prolong a flawless tan. It hydrates your skin with the same essential oils found in the Hydrating Mousse, but also contains added antioxidants to help rejuvenate and balance your skin. This product is better for ladies and gentlemen with fair skin looking to slowly build a tan, as it enables you to control the depth of colour you desire.

Head to the Sunescape website now and pick up the mousse for £24 and the tan extender lotion for £20, and soon everyone will be asking you where you went for holiday!

O'Right - RECOFFEE Range

Here at The Amazing Blog, we know how much of a difference a good hair day can make. When your hair looks great, you feel great, and often a pretty style starts with a proper cleanse and condition. That’s why we love the RECOFFEE range from O’Right.

These hair products are made from natural ingredients, which work together to cleanse while locking in moisture so your hair looks smooth and silky. Both products contain Recoffee Oil, which boasts a plethora of hair-loving antioxidants, so it’s super beneficial for your hair. Additionally, it’s free from parabens and other harmful ingredients, so your hair will be in tip top condition after use. As well as conditioner, the collection consists of a Moisturising and Volumising Shampoo, depending on what your hair needs are. We tried the Moisturising Shampoo on our dry, heat ravaged locks, and we really noticed a difference. It lathers well and won’t irritate your eyes if you happen to get any suds in them while you’re washing. The bottles are also biodegradable, a great concept which will reduce your carbon footprint, so the environment will benefit while you hair stays looking fabulous.

Pick up the RECOFFEE Conditioner here for £22, and the RECOFFEE Moisturising Shampoo here for £19.95 and get ready to show off your gorgeous locks.

Environ RAD Sunscreen

We here at The Amazing Blog care deeply about proper skincare. One of the most important parts of taking care of your skin involves using an SPF regularly to protect your skin from harmful ultraviolent sun rays. For this reason, we love the RAD Antioxidant Sunscreen from Environ with SPF 15.

The sunscreen was launched in 1992 by Dr. Des Fernandes, a South African plastic surgeon. It enhances conventional sun protection by addressing sun rays that go beyond the standard UV-A and UV-B. It prevents sunburn and even helps to heal existing sunburns with essential vitamins C and E and other skin-soothing ingredients.

Unlike many normal sunscreens, this product contains antioxidant-rich vitamins that can reduce the impact of free radicals, which can damage DNA and destroy collagen and elastin. In turn, you’ll reduce your risk for prematurely aged skin, pigmentation and skin cancer, since the product doesn’t contain any ingredients that will trigger free racial damage once absorbed.

Our favourite part of the product was the clean scent and lightweight feel, since many sunscreens often feel too think and heavy. This one protects our skin and feels wonderful at the same time.

The RAD Antioxidant SPF 15 Sunscreen costs £19.95 and is available for beauty salon stockists nationwide. Head to to the Environ website and type in your address to find the stockist nearest you.

PopKakery - Poptails

We here at The Amazing Blog  never need an excuse to indulge in a sweet treat or a generous glass of our favourite alcoholic beverage. With the news PopTails cake pops from PopKakery, we get the best of both worlds. These aren’t just ordinary cake pops – each of the four flavours is infused with different fruit flavours mixed with a complementary alcohol.  

Drinking your favourite cocktail alone is so last year; now, you can have your favourite drink in cake form! The four flavours are: Pina Colada (coconut and pineapple flavours mixed with rum), Cosmopolitan (berry flavours infused with vodka), Mojito (lime and mint flavours mixed with rum) and Tequila Sunrise (orange flavours infused with tequila). PopKakery said that these four flavours came out on top as the most-loved cocktails in a market research study among consumers, so you know they must be good.

Set out these exciting PopTails at your next party, but make sure you have some original PopKakes by their side for any of the attendees that are under 18. Since these products are so unique and innovative, we were excited to try them. My personal pick is the Mojito PopTail for a well-balanced treat that gives the perfect punch of lime, mint and rum.

Get your own set of PopTails on the PopKakery website here in a variety of quantities, depending on what you’re looking for.
