Tanzee - The Next Big Thing in Tanning



The Tanzee

Written By Melbourne and Georgette Editor
Georgia Power 

Last week I was spending countless amount of time on Instagram – as per usual – and came across the best invention ever.

The Tanzee is going to be the biggest thing to hit the tanning world since the tanning mitt. Yes I have made that call and I am sticking to it!



So what is the Tanzee you might ask? Well prepare to have your mind blown. Do you ever fake tan the night before a big event, and sleep in it to get that extra bit of colour? I do.

Do you ever wake up in the morning with that fabulous tan and then hear your mother or partner shrieking from the your bedroom? I do.

Are you sick of those orange sheets that you have to wash the next day? I definitely am.

Well you don’t have to worry anymore. Just buy yourself a Tanzee and your problems are solved.

The Tanzee is a high quality microfiber silk slip that protects your sheets, pillows and duvet from being destroyed by your fake tan. It is also made of the most premium, non-allergenic material possible, so you won’t wake up with sniffles.



“The Tan Stays On You, Not Your Bed.”


Each Tanzee is lightweight and compact – folding into a square shape – making it the perfect size for travelling and storing! The slip itself also contains a hole for your pillow to slot in, which means no more rolling off during the night. The silk is completely comfortable! It is breathable for those hot nights, but then gives you extra warmth if it is cold. It really is genius and I have already used mine countless times in just a week!


I was lucky enough to sit down with founder Maddie and ask her about her amazing product.

Who are you? Tell us a little bit about yourself!

My name is Madison! I am just your regular 23-year-old girl, and I have created and founded Tanzee all on my own, from the ground up.

Have you always wanted to have your own brand?

I have always had the drive for business, when I was 12 I used to spend all my pocket money on beads and supplies and spend hours a night making my own jewellery which a store in my local town would then stock and sell for me. Ever since then I have always had new projects on the go, my parents were always so supportive, but I still would not follow through out of fear of failing.

I didn't do very well in school and have always been stereotyped as the "Dumb blonde" my whole life which has just given me more drive to succeed.

How did you come up with the idea for the Tanzee?

I've always been totally neat freak with my bedroom and have always hated the way that Tan ruined my white sheets. I remember as a teenager I used to get embarrassed to have friends sleep over because I'd have brown stained sheets from my fake tan!

I got so sick of it that a while back, much to my mums disapproval, I shamefully started using sunbeds. Then in the middle of last year after hearing more and more horror stories about the health risks associated with sunbeds, I stopped using them and got back into fake tanning.

 Again I couldn't stand the constant smelly and stained sheets that I would constantly have to wash. I would also sometimes use an old sheet and sleep in that, but it just never did the job!

One night after tanning I said to my mum "I really wish I had something that I could just slip in my bed and wash in the morning. Something that’s  easy so my tan don’t ruin my sheets!".

And that was it. I didn't sleep a wink that night because I was up planning out Tanzee in my head. The next morning I grabbed an old sheet and our sewing machine and created a prototype for Tanzee.


What do you love about the tanzee the most?

I love that Tanzee is fixing one of the oldest and most annoying problems that us girls have just decided we have to put up with! I love that it is actually going to help a lot of girls and stop embarrassment! I love that they are so comfortable and compact so we can take them anywhere! Most of all, I’m so excited we will all be able to use our beautiful white sheets again! Yay!

Whats your favourite Tanzee colour?

My favourite Tanzee colour is Silver because it matches the cushions on my bed


The Tanzee is available online here for $34.95. So go pick out your favourite colour and spend more time enjoying life!

Myer 2015 Autumn/Winter Runway


MYER
2015 A/W RUNWAY

Written By Melbourne and Georgette Editor
Georgia Power 

A couple of days ago Myer put on a runway for their Autumn/Winter Season for 2015.

It was quite a fantastic spectacle, featuring famous designers such as Maticevski, Alex Perry and of course, Melbourne and Georgette's favourite, By Johnny. These are only a few of the designers that Myer offers for the Autumn/Winter season. The rest can be seen in store or online.


The runway was pray to crisp whites, soft greys and a delightful canary that brightened the seasons designers dramatically. As per usual, all eyes where on the gorgeous Myer ambassador, Jennifer Hawkins.

It was definitely a bit of a flash back to the 70's with bootcut tailored pants, thigh high tied jackets and our personal favourite, the wide brimmed felt hat. And yet each design managed to be fashion forward and definitely cutting edge.

Here is a look at a few of our favourites from the 2015 show:

Cutting edge fashion forward looks by Morrison

As per usual,  all class and feminine shape by By Johnny

Geometric Jumpsuit by Arthur Galan

Delicate layers by Maticevski

If this is the start to the fashion festival season then we are so excited for what is to come!

SkinnyMe Tea Review

SkinnyMe Tea
Review

Written By Melbourne and Georgette Editor
Georgia Power 


After an amazing four-month trip in Europe I came home with a lot of baggage. A couple of pairs of shoes, plenty of dresses and well, 6kg of extra weight on the scales.

To be honest, when I first saw how much I put on I thought, hey, fair enough! It will come off in a couple of weeks. After a while I realised that this time round, just waiting wasn’t going to work as it had in the past. Clearly, my metabolism had slowed down in the last year, making it a lot harder to loose the weight.

I started feeling gross and uneasy about my body, which has never happened before. For the first time I was really insecure about myself.

I’m not saying I don’t regret eating that much in Europe, I definitely DO NOT regret a thing! One day I had pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thank you Italy!

So after a couple of hours of sitting on the couch one day, eating macaroons and contemplating what I was going to do, I decided I needed some motivation to kick start my weight loss journey.

I had heard of SkinnyMe Tea through my sister, who had used the Colon Cleanse during a Detox for her issues with digesting. So after a lot of research I decided to give it a try!

I received a gorgeous gift pack from SMT containing a 14-Day Teatox, Conlon Cleanse, Zen pack, and Immune Tea – not to mention the all-famous Strawberry strainer!


The best thing about this whole experience is it happened just as the new SMT App was released, making it so much easier to plan out my teatox and keep on top of it.

When I took my day one photos on the 14-Day Teatox, the first thing I noticed was how bloated I was. I could have been pregnant for all others knew!

Day 1 






This was where I noticed the biggest difference in my body, I no longer swelled like I used to – having a flat stomach for the first time. I also had so much more energy!

After the teatox and colon cleanse I was 5 kg lighter!  I was so shocked by the results!

Day 20 (after 14-day Teatox, Colon Cleanse and Immune tea)







Now of course it’s my job to tell you that this tea isn’t something you can just drink and BOOM you’re skinny. I stayed on track with my tea religiously as well as starting running.

I can safely say three months ago I had never run longer that 30 seconds in my life, so it was quite a challenge to get over how hard it was.

I can tell you that I now run for 30 minutes straight and I can’t even describe how much I love it! Finally exercise I enjoy!

Running, teamed up with SMT was my savour! I ran every second or third day for 10-15 minutes.

So if you are going to start trying SMT make sure you team it up with some regular exercise!

Before and after - WOW!


One thing you do need to look out for is the Colon Cleanse - this stuff is gold! You drink the tea at night before bed, so the next morning, prepare yourself! For the first Colon Cleanse you take make sure you aren’t going anywhere but on your toilet for the morning. The Colon Cleanse cleans out your body, literally.

I had a few pains in the morning from my body cleaning up my system but nothing that bad!

The Zen Tea was great when wanting to wind down after a long day at work, it really soothed me like nothing else. I teamed it up with the 4-7-8 breathing technique and boom – I was the calmest I’d ever been.

Finally the Immune Tea, I still haven’t finished it but I can tell you I just feel a bit healthier! My skin is better, I get no colds and I feel fresher in the morning!

In conclusion, I cannot recommend SMT enough, it’s a great way to kick start your weight loss and just improve your every day life!

You can buy SMT online at www.skinnymetea.com.au and choose from many, many products and bulk packs!

I will continue doing another 14-day Teatox and also try the amazing Acai Tea, ComplexionMe 14-day Teatox,  HealthyMe Tea and also the amazing Flowerbomb for the bath!

They have  amazing options guys,  so check it out!
