** IRISH BEAUTY SHOW BLOG **

Hi Guys

Welcome back to my blog, i hope you are all having a lovely day!! As i type this i'm in work currently on the sly doing some blogging while working but the boss doesn't mind!! :-) Anyway's how was everyone's weekend, I hope you all had a lovely one. I was meant to have got this blog posted there last weekend but something came up which meant putting it on hold for another week. Anyway if you guys follow me on FB, Twitter or Instagram you all would have seen that i attended the #IRISHBEAUTYSHOW in the RDS last Sunday. This was my first time going to this event!! Myself and my friend attended it, the place was packed and i mean PACKED, you couldn't even see the Crown Brush Stall!! Luckily i had done a bit of home work on what retailers where attending so i picked out what i wanted to look mostly at the event!!

So we arrived just a little after 11 O'Clock, reason been me trying to find a parking space around the Ballsbridge area of Dublin, but to no avail there was not a street parking space to be seen, so i ended up parking in the Leinster Stadium Car park (just 2 mins from where the event was been held!! As we made our way up to the event there was rows of people queuing up to get into the event, lucky for me and my friend i had registered my blog online a week before the event was been issued with fast track tickets (in better terms we got in quicker). :-)

So by the time we got our tickets scanned it was time to enter the all important event. We were in BEAUTY HEAVEN!!
As the majority of retails that were there showing off there products, a lot were focusing around clients that owned Beauty Salons, Hairdressers, Sole Traders within the Beauty Market. From a bloggers point of view it was quite interesting to see how you could go about staring up your own beauty business as these type of events come in handy for buying products, materials and getting your name/business name out into the beauty industry and of course getting to know people in the industry which can help you along the way!!

I decided to look around some of the retail stalls and see what products that are available to the beauty customer/client!! Some of the retailers there displaying there products were Crown Brush, Fuschia, Benefit, Blank Canvas Cosmetics, French Cosmetics, INailz, Lycon, Cocoa Brown, Hair & Beauty Company and so many more!!
 (a page full) There were endless special offers and new products been launched to the beauty world too!!  From hair to makeup to skin care and nail stands there was something for everyone!!

Now on to what i bought at this years Irish Beauty Show 2015.......

First up i bought a range of products from the brands Revlon and Bourjois, the stall i bought them from is a company (which i can't even think of the name of) they are always in attendance of this type of events where they sell 5 beauty products for €10. And like always i bought a lot of makeup from them.

Here's what i bought.....

First up i bought this REVLON NEARLY NAKED FOUNDATION, I bought this in the shade 150 Nude as it matches my skin tone!! This foundation is really light, and with its weightless pigments it melts right in to the skin, creating a fresh and even complexion.


Next i bought this REVLON PHOTOREADY SKINLIGHTS FACE ILLUMINATOR, I bought this in the shade 100 Bare Light. This product banishes dullness and even's out your skin. With its light capturing crystals and photochromatic pigments it leaves your face photo ready for what ever day lies ahead. I have been using this for the past week or so now, I just tend to mix it with my foundation and apply straight to my skin for a glowing look!!



I then bought 2 of my favorite products in the world, BOURJOIS EYESHADOW POT in the shade.......... and BOURJOIS BLUSHER in the shade....... I have been such a fan of this two products for a which, and i also have a collection of there Eyeshadow Pots too, I can't seem to get enough of the shades!!


Next I bought even more eyeshadow products, this time I picked up REVLON'S COLORSTAY 16 HOUR EYESHADOW QUAD!! I bought this in the shade PRECOCIOUS!! The shades are really rich in colour and have a lovely texture to them too!! I can't wait to try them out!!


I then picked up another Nail Polish, this time i bought REVLON NAIL POLISH in the shade 675 RAVISHING!! This really is a gorgeous shade, i'm a little bit addicted to the colour red, and i feel its perfect for that ultimate gorgeous nail look!! I have it on my nails at the minute and I just love it!! While were talking about nail polishes, I also bought this Nail Polish from MISIA NAIL LACQUERS, I bought it this gorgeous pink neon shade which would be a perfect nail look for summer!! it was only €3.95 which was a bargain!!


Next on to some Mascara, I can never go to a beauty event and not by at least one mascara, so in fact I bought 2 from the BOURJOIS RANGE!! The first one i bought was this BOURJOIS VOLUME GLAMOUR ULTRA CARE MASCARA!! I have been using this one for the last couple of days or so, and it works really well with my lashes, giving great volume and lenght which i'm loving!! :-) The 2nd Mascara i bought was this BOURJOIS VOLUME CLUBBING MASCARA, which looks really good. I can't wait to try this out on my lashes!!


Next I bought this GREEN GLITTER for doing Nail Art designs on my nails, I'm a fan of everything glittery plus i love looking after my nails and creating new designs/looks on them too!! I bought this from PRO IMPRESSIONS at the Irish Beauty Show for only €2.50, along with a couple of other items which i'm going to be sharing with you:


Another item i bought was this DESIGNER NAIL FILE (in a zebra print), I bought a nail file from this company before and i found them quite good!! so like always i decided to buy another one again!! I bought this for only a €1.00!! BARGAIN!! On to my final item that i bought at this years IRISH BEAUTY SHOW........and its this PRO IMPRESSIONS DOUBLE SIDED FOOT FILE!! I'm a person that loves having smooth feet, and this comes in handy to use when times get rough on the feet!! I bought this for only €1.99 which was really good value!!

CATCH UP BLOG POST!!

Hi Guys

Long time no see, as you guys can already guess I decided to take a month's break from blogging!! But i'm back now and rearing to go on get blogs/vlogs done over the next couple of months. For today's Blog Post i'm going to share with you all a bit of a 'Catch up Blog' as to what i have been doing over the last month or so!!


Anyway guys how has everyone's January and February been?? Mine has been quite a busy one as for the reason I haven't been blogging!! So let me go through as to what has been happening, well you guys will have already known i recently got a new job in October which i am still working away and keeping me busy. I have also starting a evening course in doing Book-keeping/Accounts which does be on in college 1 evening per week. The course is coinciding with my job, which i am loving, i was never a person that was good at Maths in school, but since i started my new job i'm loving everything to do with accounts!! :-)

Apart from my Job + Evening Course, I recently signed up to the GYM!! I'm a member of THE GLENVIEW HEALTH CLUB, I joined in January (just after Christmas) and I love it!! I started off in the month of January working out on what I wanted to do, but after a while i got a bit bored of doing the same thing and not knowing what exercises where good for me or not!! So I decided to talk to one of the trainers there on getting a assessment done (best idea every) he talked over that they set out a program for what suits you!!

So i decided to book one, on the day of the assessment i had a good chat with my trainer/instructor, and he went over a few things with me on how it works. Next it was on to Measurements/Weight and Height, this does be done so they can monitor how you are doing through out your program!! Next it was on to the all important program!! So at this stage the trainer/instructor aloud me to look over the program before i headed up to the gym and this is where you can see if you are comfortable with everything you are going to be doing!! Next its GYM TIME, at this stage i have looked over everything and i'm comfortable with everything i'm going to be doing so its time for my trainer/instructor to show me the right way of doing my workouts.

 As I'm typing this, i have just booked my 2nd assessment which means i'm coming to the end of my first program. But i'll give you all a clear view on what my first program was all about,

Basically i was instructed to do:

  • 5 MINUTES WARM UP ON THE CROSSTRAINER (this gives you a boost of energy and gets your body warmed up for the main workout!!)
  • 10-12 SETS OF A RANGE OF WORKOUTS ON THE CABLES (for the main workout its everything from Falling Forward, Squats, and Pulling yourself in on the cables, your arms do be quite sore after that but after a few times you eventually get use to it!!)
  • 2K ROW ON THE ROWER + TRY TO DO IT WITHIN 10 MINUTES (next is the Rower, a 2k row which i like or should i say try to do in under 10 Minutes, last time out on this i did it in 9 minutes 14 seconds that's a full 14 seconds took off my time!!)
Here's a sneak peek at the Workout Program itself: 



So that's been my own workout program for the past 3 weeks now, and one day this week coming i'll be starting my 2nd program which i can't wait to try as you kinda get a little bored of the same routine so it's always nice to mix things up by changing to a new one!!

As i have became so obsessed with the gym I decided to buy a MYZONE BELT , these belts are amazing i used one of these in my assessment and loved how it tracked my heart rate & calories!! Here's a little info on these belts:  


MYZONE is a chest strap (belt) and monitoring system that transmits your Heart Rate, Calories and Effort in real time to a live display and wireless uploads that send data to a log book that can be accessed through the MYZONE LITE APP!! Personally if you guys are in a gym at the minute and the MYZONE belts are available, i would defiantly recommend that you get one as they are brilliant for tracking your heart rate and of course how many calories you have burned off in your workouts. 



What I love the most about them is you can set yourself targets, i like doing my workout and then when i'm finished i look up on my phone as to how much i have done (ie Calories, Meps) and then the following day i like to try and beat what i have done on the previous workout!!

PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY SHOW HAUL PART 1!!

Hi Guys and Welcome to today's blog, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Sorry there hasn't been many blog posts been uploaded here on Stylish and Fabulous, that's mainly because I have had such a busy month. I recently took up a new job and I have been busy focusing on that, but don't worry..... because I AM BACK here on Stylish and Fabulous bringing you a load more blogs and vlogs here on my blog and over on my channel!!

Lets begin....So last month I attended the Professional Beauty Event in the RDS Dublin, What a fun day it was, I was in BEAUTY HEAVEN. There were so many things to see and do!! Browsing through Make-up was my favourite out of everything,

Anyway's I also bought a couple of Make-up Products along the way....which I am going to share with you all....

Up first I bought this...do I need to explain...I think every beauty blogger out there has one....yes its the one the only CROWN BRUSH 10 COLOR CONCEALER PALETTE.


I have wanted to get one of this for such a long time, as I am all about contouring and highlighting the different parts of the face. Now I have one!!


Its a basic black plastic container with 10 Concealer shades, from light to dark. The texture is really silky and the pigment is really rich in colour. I bought this from the Crown Brush stand for only €18.00 which was great for such a fantastic Make-up product.

Next up I called into my favourite stand of the whole entire beauty show, (can't remember the name) but they sale 5 Broujois Make-up products for only €20.00 which is a bargain, as each item would only cost you €5.00.



The first item I picked up was this HEALTHY MIX FOUNDATION FROM BOURJOIS in the shade 58, Although they didn't have this in my shade.


I decided to go for this one as it will come in handy for contouring, a dark foundation is always ideal,


Next I picked up my favourite, FAVOURITE MASACARA, BOURJOIS 2 IN 1 LENGTH & VOLUME MASCARA.


 I have been using this for a long time on my lashes, and I just love it. It gives great volume and defines them.


I then bought this BOURJOIS MAXI DELIGHT BRONZER in the shade 02 TANNED SKIN, I love Bronzes especially when it comes to finishing off contouring.


 I like to apply a small amount of bronzer to the cheek bones to expose the cheek bone,


Next I then picked up another favourite, BOURJOIS BLUSHER, I got this in the shade 34 Rose D'or,


I love there Blushers that's the reason I keep coming back to buy Blushers.

Finally I picked up another MASCARA, this time its BOURJOIS VOLUME CLUBBING ULTRA BLACK MASCARA, I haven't seen this before so I'm looking forward to using it!!

Apologises for not blogging last week, a lot has came up in the last 2 weeks and I was mad busy!! But I'm BACK!! So lets start off this weeks blogs with of course MAKE-UP MONDAY. an d for this weeks one I'm going to be sharing with you all my SEPTEMBER FAVOURITES!! 


So my first favourite for the month of September is this GOSH NAIL POLISH in the Shade 541 GASOLINE (a purple shade) I bought this around a month ago and I haven't stopped wearing this on my nails since. I love the shade and with us been in winter, its the perfect shade to have on those nails!!


Next up is this DOVE Creme Mousse Body Wash, I have been using this for the past couple of weeks and it leaves my skin feeling super soft. My next favourite is this LOREAL Elvive Fibrology Shampoo, I have been using this on my hair for the last couple of weeks too and I just love it!!


Another favourite is this Facial Cleanse and Massage which I bought in Penney's (Primark), I have been using this a couple of times a week and it has worked fantastic on my skin leaving it lovely and soft. It is also brilliant for removing any dead skin.....and it also wakes you up in the morning too!!


Next is this W7 COVERSTICK which I love as I tend to use it to cover any spots or blemishes that I may have. Although I only paid €2.99 for it, this product does its job really well. I also love this NIVEA INVISIBLE DEODORANT I find it brilliant for keeping my underarms dry.
