Priceline Pink Diamond Gift Box!

Hi guys! In super exciting news, I was rewarded with my first ever Priceline Pink Diamond gift box recently! In terrible beauty blogger news, I'd actually never heard of it, so got the surprise of my life when I received an email telling me I was eligible and to go in-store to pick one up!

A quick look at the Priceline website informed me Sister Club members are eligible for the Pink Diamond box when they earn at least 400 points per quarter. Now what we are all waiting for.... let's look at what I got in my box!

Hask Argan Oil Repairing Shampoo (100ml)
Hask Argan Oil Repairing Conditioner (100ml)
Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in Show Stopper
La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Ultra-Light Fluid SPF 50+ (3ml)
Aus Medic Co Phyto-Nutrient Face Mask (10g)
Calvin Klein Women fragrance sample (1.2ml)
Aussie Bodies Lo Carb Whip'd Protein Bar in Chocolate (60g)

I think this is a great box! First of all, the contents are substantial in size and generous. I love Hask hair oils, so I'm excited to try the repairing shampoo and conditioner and love that they are a good size, as I'll get quite a few uses out of them. Some Pink Diamond boxes contained the Monoi Coconut products instead of the Repairing ones. Although matte isn't my first choice for lipstick formula, the fact that Priceline included a full size Revlon lipstick must be commended. It's a beautiful classic red shade, too.

The little sunscreen from La Roche-Posay (a brand I love) will certainly come in handy now that the weather is heating up. I'm keen to try the Aus Medic Co face mask, although this is the first time I've heard of the brand! It contains papaya enzymes and algae extract to help soften and break down the skin's outer layer for a deep pore cleanse. Interesting!

The Calvin Klein 'Women' fragrance is really lovely (and incidentally the first thing I tried when I opened the box). The scent is composed of orange flower petals and fresh eucalyptus acorns. Some Pink Diamond boxes contained a Juicy Couture sample in place of this. At the counter I was asked if I'd like a chocolate or choc mint protein bar. I opted for chocolate. This is the only proper choice you get to make, the other ones it's just the luck of the draw as to what options you get in your box!

Like the Mecca Beauty Loop boxes, there's also a little info card inside, detailing the products selected for the box. Overall, I'm really happy with the Pink Diamond Box. Thanks Priceline!

Adelaide Event: Marion Hotel Launch!

Marion Hotel
849 Marion Road
Mitchell Park
SA 5043

Hi guys! Last week saw the official Launch of the The Marion Hotel in Adelaide. Yes, the Marion Hotel has been around for years, but they've recently undergone a massive $20 million renovation, and I must say, the results are stylish, modern and very impressive. The outdoor garden area, expansive dining area and entertainment areas have all been redesigned and upgraded, in the Hotel's first refurbishment in twenty years. They also have brand new super stylish hotel rooms, so this really is a venue to check out if you're in the area!

I was lucky enough to enjoy a lovely array of delicious wines at the event, along with a stunningly beautiful dessert grazing table that was filled with mini cakes, macarons, nuts, fruits, cheese and doughnut towers! Seriously, I couldn't stop looking at it! I also tried a delicious gin and tonic from the garden bar, and sampled tempura vegetables, chicken crostini and mouth-wateringly good lamb chops that came out as finger food. One day I will try the sushi, but I couldn't muster the courage on this occasion, despite it looking delicious! After enjoying live entertainment from the Pedro Brothers, we witnessed the official opening of The Marion Hotel by the Hon Steven Marshall MP, the Premier of South Australia.

Afterwards, my friend and I ventured into the Lovin' Livin' Locale gig near the bar and enjoyed some really yummy Give Me S'More cocktails, whilst listening to some great local acts, including Heaps Good Friends, Stellie and Void. All up, this was a fantastic night showcasing a gorgeous venue, and I was so honoured to be invited!

Many thanks to Girl About Town for the invitation and The Marion Hotel for their kind hospitality.
