OFFICIAL LAUNCH OF JIE JIE BEACH BY JETWING - PANADURA

June 11, 2017, 5:56 a.m.



Hi guys, I hope you all have had a wonderful week so far! On the 4th of June I was invited for the official launch of Jie Jie beach by jetwing hotels, this was the second event I've attended for jetwing. The first was the Dambulla launch but I was in Abu Dhabi and was so sad I missed it. The second was a coffee morning for the ever glow beauty launch at jetwing sea and the third being Jie Jie  beach. 


For those of you who want to go down south but don't like the distance as much, or if you're looking for something a little closer to home this is the perfect hotel for you as it's literally 1 hour away from Colombo and half an hour from Mount Lavinia! When I first found out that it was in Panadura I was abit skeptical of how the beach would look like and the surrounding of the hotel. If you just scroll up to my first picture of the beach, no ones first thought would be Panadura. The beach stretch is so clean and what I love about it the most is that unlike some typical down south hotels the beach wasn't crowded or there weren't outsiders lingering around on the beach. I love the beach, I miss it... All I wanted to do was run in to the ocean if I wasn't wearing white jeans. During our tour around the hotel after the press conference we were taken to different types of rooms from the honeymoon suite to the normal suite and a standard room. If you are planning to stay over at Jie Jie beach I highly recommend that you go for a sea view room as it makes a huge difference and you avoid the railway tracks with trains passing on the other side.  

Planning your wedding with a crowd that exceeds the standard limit? 

Jie Jie beach literally has the biggest banquet hall I've seen! To accompany up to 520 guests and the left hand side of the hall is purely glass with a long stretch of the balcony over looking the ocean. A day time reception would look so stunning in this banquet hall. 

The food - The starters were my favorite out of the mains and the dessert. A huge variety of meat, sea food, salads, sushi and dressings to chose from that you will not be disappointed! I have to say that there was a pretty good meat variety for the mains but I could not try anything as I am a pescatarian and Nayan did not have lunch that day. If you're into sweets more than savory you're going to lose it! No joke, my pictures haven't captured every single thing that was served on the dessert table. From macaroons to different types of cake, fruits, tarts, puddings, biscuits and the list goes on and on. They also had a live mojito station after the tour of the hotel was done which was a nice touch I think. 

If any of you do go to Jie Jie beach please do tag me in your photos, I would love to see yours aswell :)


Love,

COFFEE MORNINGS AT JETWING SEA - EVER GLOW BEAUTY LAUNCH!

May 21, 2017, 11:42 a.m.



Hello my chicky bananas! So I was invited for the ever glow beauty launch at jetwing sea and I did not want to publish the post a few days after the launch as I wanted to test out the free body lotion that we received as it takes a few weeks to actually get use to a product or see results. I always want to give you guys genuine tips and opinions that's why this post took a little longer than usual. 

I have to say the number one thing that I love about these products is that its all natural ingredients that's going on to your skin. No artificial chemicals that sometimes ages your skin with time. So if you're ever using any type of beauty product look for products that focuses around promoting natural ingredients as it's the safest for your skin on the long run. Ever since I started using the lotion it's automatically been apart of my daily routine even though I have several lotions to chose from I realized that I automatically reach out for the earth essence lotion instead. 

They also have lotions to treat stretch marks, anti wrinkle cream, hand and nail cream (Which I think most of us tend to neglect), face masks and many more amazing products! If you guys can get your hands on these test it out for a couple of days or weeks and you'll notice that you gravitate to it more than the other products you use. I find knowing that it's all natural products makes me want to use it more and more. 

Once the launch of the products were done we then had brunch and did a little bit of shopping from the sari connection and headed back home after the raffle draw. It was the first time I visited Jetwing Sea and I'm planning to visit again to actually enjoy the beautiful beach and the hotel. 


Love,

RUM PUNCH X FUZE LAUNCH

April 30, 2017, 6:51 p.m.





Hello chicky bananas! So, this post is long long long overdue cause I needed to buy a new MacBook to access iMovie! I was invited for the launch as a blogger and I was excited as this was the first event that I was attending as a blogger, even though I was sick (as you can tell from the photos). I'm sure some of you know about Rum Punch already and for those of you who don't know... Rum Punch is a very cool and vibrant Sri Lankan swimwear brand owned by Rukshika and Binara Seneviratne. The brand is known for their bold prints and hues to spice up your holiday! Rum Punch has been around for a few years if I'm not mistaken and this launch was all about custom designed swimwear! 

I'm sure some of you are wondering why is fuze involved with this launch? Fuze offers 15,000 variations among 15 designs, from one pieces to high waisted bottoms and bikinis that range from size XS to XL. 

Rum Punch wanted to give their past, present, and new customers the opportunity to custom design their own swimwear. This experience would give you the chance of experiencing a sense of excitement and confidence to design your very own piece to suite you the best! This concept has never been introduced to Sri Lanka before and I think it's a great opportunity to connect with the brand and turn yourself in to a little designer. You guys need to check it out at http://fuze.rumpunchresortwear.com

Bonus points - 25% off if you have an HSBC credit card! 

I think theres just two more days left, so go grab your custom piece from Rum Punch soon!
