London Wine Week 2016

Following a hugely successful London Beer Week which saw 10,000 beer drinkers descend on The Old Truman Brewery in February, DrinkUp.London’s latest festival - London Wine Week - taking place this week (23-29 May 2016), was destined to be another great event! Here at The Amazing Blog we love attending events and we adore wine. So when we found out that LWW was wine-ding down this Sunday we promptly added it to our weekend plans.

The festival has returned to Devonshire Square for a third year, where all of the city's wine lovers can gather for a chance to enjoy a tipple or two. Filled with masterclasses, tutored tastings, supper clubs, meet the maker evenings, parties and pop-ups; you will have an opportunity not only to taste the wine and discover new flavours, but also to expand your knowledge about how wine is made or what food goes best with it. If all this wasn’t enough, over 100 venues across the city will be opening their doors offering £5 tasting wine flights and specially created food and drink pairings for those wearing the festival wristband.

For only £10 you will experience a brilliant event and have the opportunity to witness the very best that wine has to offer. So go ahead and purchase your wristband online here and enjoy your weekend!

Loves Lights Highlight Powder and Alchemy Long-lasting Brow Liner – Rouge Bunny Rouge

Here at The Amazing Blog, we really can’t get enough of Rouge Bunny Rouge products, so you can understand our excitement when they sent us their newly reformulated Loves Lights Highlighting Powder and newly launched Alchemy Long-lasting Brow Liner!

The Loves Lights Highlighting Powder in the shade Goddess is absolutely stunning and comes with a powder puff for easy application. The powder is so beautifully embossed that we hesitated to touch it at first, but it is so finely milled and silky that it really deserves to be used. The shade Goddess is a light cream with pink undertones and a subtle white-gold sheen. When applied to the skin, it has a natural satin finish that makes you look as if you are glowing from the inside. The highlighter is formulated with anti-aging benefits, so it’s just as good for your skin as it looks. The Alchemy Long-Lasting Brow Liner is available in two natural shades and features a fine tip to allow for easy application and shaping of the brows. Designed to last, the liner is smudge proof and waterproof so you can rest assured your brows will look on point for the entire day.

Add a touch of natural glam to your makeup regime with Rouge Bunny Rouge via their website, with the powder available for £45 and brow liner for £26.

Sleep Tracker Smart - Beddit

Here at The Amazing Blog, we appreciate the importance of a good night’s sleep, both for the beauty benefits and to give us the energy to plough through each day. That is why when we heard that there was a sleep monitoring device that wouldn’t require us to wear a buzzing bracelet or sleep in a contraption that belongs in Space Odyssey, we snapped up the opportunity to give it a go!

The Beddit Sleep Tracker Smart is the ultimate life-hack to help you make the most of your shut-eye time and get going each morning with more energy. Simply place the sleek, minimalist device under your sheet and link it with your mobile phone via the Beddit App (iPhone and Android compatible) to have your quality and length of sleep recorded. Upon waking (the app will kindly wake you at the optimum time), you will receive a SleepScore so that you know how well you slept. While for those who also wish to get down to the science of their sleep, the device measures your resting heart rate so that you can decipher how well you recovered from the day’s workout. This allows you to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury due to inadequate rest and recovery.

Get sleeping like a baby with the help of the Beddit Sleep Tracker Smart, available here for £149, and visit the Beddit YouTube channel for more info!

All-In-One Anti Ageing Cream – NCN Professional Skincare

While there are many things that improve with time (like a fine wine), skin is definitely not one of them. Here at The Amazing Blog, we understand what it is like to be dissatisfied with the appearance of our ageing skin. Although many women turn to fillers to remove wrinkles and troublesome spots, there are a few highly effective products you might want to consider before stepping into the clinic.

The All-in-One Anti Ageing Cream by NCN Professional Skincare is a potent blend of peptides, actives, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and oils that can plump, lift, erase fine lines, hydrate, pamper and nourish your skin. For anyone experiencing wrinkles, loss of firmness, or dull skin, this formula is the solution you have been looking for! As an all-in-one product, it can be used entirely on its own in your skincare regimen. Unless you have extremely dehydrated skin, you don’t even need to apply a moisturiser alongside it. Apply it once or twice daily to see a visible improvement in the appearance of your skin.

The All-in-One Anti Ageing Cream is available here for £69.99.

Mahtay Natural Biorhythm - Mahtay

New Blog Picture copy.jpg

It is Monday again and here at The Amazing Blog, we sometimes need an extra boost to keep us going with the start of a new week. We’ve recently discovered Mahtay Natural Biorhythm, a vitality drink that helps to energise and get us charging through the day.

Mahtay Natural Biorhythm is a roasted sparkling Yerba Maté drink with refreshing coconut juice and antioxidant-rich acai berries. This healthy drink is low calorie, low sugar, and tastes great whether it is on its own or mixed into a cheeky cocktail. The Yerba Maté, sourced from South America, has invigorative and energizing properties due to the natural presence of Theobromine, a thermogenic fat burner that acts like caffeine but without the side effects of coffee. Coconut water contains bioactive enzymes that promote healthy digestion and increased metabolism, along with a variety of healthy vitamins and minerals. The Acai berries provide antioxidants promoting a healthy complexion and improving mental and physical endurance so you can work hard and play hard!
