MY DECEMBER FAVOURITES!!

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day so far. For today's post i'm going to be sharing with you all my last favourites post of 2016. I can't believe we are now in January 2017, its really incredible how fast last year went.

Before i share with you all the products in which i was loving for the month of December, first i just want to say is a big thank you to all my readers who have supported the blog for all of 2016, this year is going to be a busy year for Stylish and Fabulous with some really exciting stuff coming up on the blog as well as over on my youtube channel....so watch this space!

GARNIER SIMPLY ESSENTIALS 2 IN 1 MAKEUP REMOVER
So my first favourite for the month of December is this Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing 2 in 1 Makeup Remover. I absolutely love using this when taking my makeup off at night, it simply removes makeup in seconds along with removing stubborn mascara and eyeliner.  Its enriched with plant extract and pro Vitamin B5 and as i mentioned above its a 2 in 1 formula that contains no perfume and no alcohol. Whats really clever about this product is that its combined with a makeup removing oil (liquid) and the freshness of a cleansing water in just one step. This is a product that i have used in the past hence why i have returned to using it as i find it incredible for removing makeup in seconds.

Score: 10/10
Shop: Tesco Stores
Price: €2.99


SECRET SIREN BODY SPRAY
Next up is this Secret Siren Body Spray from Aldis, I decided to pick this up and give it a go as i was intrigued to see how different this Body Spray would be against the likes of Impluse or Charlie Sprays. I decided to purchase the fragrance Lily and Damask Rose which smells amazing and lasts throughout the day too. I love to carry one of these spray's in my handbag when i'm on the go as its a handy sized spray to keep in your bag.

Score: 9/10
Shop: Aldi Stores
Price: €0.89


DEEP SLEEP PILLOW SPRAY FROM 'THE WORKS'
On to my third favourite for the month of December and its this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from The Works. I recently got this in my November Glossybox and since then i have been it the occasional night when i can't sleep. From time to time my sleep patterns go from me been able to sleep to not been able to sleep at all. So for the times that i can't sleep i simply spray my pillows with this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray which consists of a Lavender fragrance which helps you relax and sleep throughout the night leaving you feel refreshed in the mornings. To anyone reading this and has problems sleeping, i would defiantly recommend you try this Deep Sleep Pillow Spray as its absolutely amazing. 

Score: 10/10
Price: €19.50
Shop: boots.ie


P.S NOSE STRIPS
Next up is these P.S Nose Strips from Penney's which contain Aloe which is natural for the skin. I love to use these when i have my pamper nights. These strips remove dead skin, blackheads and clears pores, leaving your nose feeling super soft and feeling refreshed. With the strips containing Aloe this helps remove a build up of dirt and oil that can cause blackheads. I would defiantly recommend these Pore Strips as they work wonders.

Score: 9/10
Price: €1.00
Shop: Penney's (Primark) Stores


PALMOLIVE SILKY SHINE EFFECT SHAMPOO
My fifth favourite for the month of December is this Palmolive Silky Shine Effect Shampoo which contains Aloe Vera. Since chatting to you guys about my latest hair care routine, i have changed my shampoo for around the 100th time now. This is basically down to my hair having a bit of irritation from the last shampoo i used hence why i decided to give this one a go. I have to say this Palmolive Silky Shine Effect Shampoo is amazing it not only leaves my hair feeling incredibly shiny but it also leaves my hair with no irritation.

Score: 9/10
Price: €1.49
Shop: Dealz Stores


RUBY PROFESSIONAL LARGE BLENDING BRUSH
On to my last favourite for the month of December and its this Ruby Professional Large Blending Brush. I got this in my November Glossybox and have loved using it since then. I love to use this when blending out my eye-shadows when creating a day or night look. The brush is soft and ideal for blending your favourite shades.

Score: 10/10
Price: €8.00
Shop: shopruby.ie

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS 2017!!

Hello Everyone,

Happy New Year to you all, i hope you all had a great Christmas!!

So as today is my first post of the New Year i'm going to share with you all my New Years Resolutions for 2017.
Last year was a very up and down year for me due to personnel issues going on within in my private life which resulted in me not blogging as much as i would have liked to throughout the year.  But this year i have wrote down some New Years Resolutions in which i'm planning on sticking too and making them work before this year is out.

First on my Resolutions list for 2017 is......

MORE BLOGGING

As i have mentioned really briefly above i had a few personnel issues going on in my private life towards the end of last year which resulted in me neglecting the blog where i would put up one post per week. So this year i want to blog a lot more and stick to schedule of uploading a post 1 to 3 times a week along with uploading a vlog as well. I also want to blog about some really interesting topics and i would love my followers to comment on what they would like to see on my blog in 2017, i find having the followers imput in the blog makes it even more exciting on future posts so if any of you are reading this please send me a message on what you would like to see here on the blog.

ME TIME

Me Time?? Yes all about me........do you ever feel that things just get on top of you and you just want to SCREAM!! Well i do, and i have had my far share of it throughout 2016!! I have set myself a goal this year to create a Me Time Slot within the working week, where i'm just going to take an hour break whether its from working or blogging and do something relaxing such as going for a walk, having a relaxing bath or doing some meditation to clear the head and get rid of any negative thoughts.
HEALTHIER YEAR

Okay, so i may have falling off the healthy band wagon since giving up the gym almost four months ago, but i am still trying to maintain a healthy diet by eating 'proper meals' along with indulging in the odd treat now and then. And as for fitness, i walk everyday as having three dogs which keeps me on the go. I do however want to get back into doing Home Workouts as i was a big fan of doing this before i joined the gym so another new years resolution is to get a lot more healthier for the year and start doing some really fun workouts to burn off a few pounds.

GET MORE SLEEP

Now that Christmas has passed i can finely get back into my routine of having a good nights sleep. I have always been a very deep sleeper but i do find myself going to bed really late especially during the weekends and its really no fault of my own as i tend to watch tv on netflix for hours on end which means i then don't get a good nights sleep. I also go through fazes where i can't sleep at all so i use a Deep Sleep Pillow Spray from the 'The Works' to relax me and help me sleep, plus when i wake in the mornings i feel super refreshed and ready for the day ahead!!
MORE COLLABORATIONS/REVIEWS

My last New Years Resolution for 2017 is do more Collaborations and Reviews. During 2016 i got to do some really amazing Collaborations which were all 'un-paid', but still at the same time it was a great experience to do some really cool collaborations with some of the leading Beauty/Fashion Brands in the world. So another of my New Years Resolutions is to do more Collaborations with Brands or other Bloggers throughout the world. I also want to do a lot more Product Reviews as i myself love reading product reviews whether its an online store review or on a website. Personally i love posting Reviews over on the blog as it gives my readers my personal and honest opinion on the product in question.

I hope you guys enjoyed today's post on My New Years Resolutions 2017.

How was everyone's weekend, i hope you all had a lovely one, i had a great weekend in which i enjoyed an overnight stay at the North Star Hotel in Dublin along with tickets to 'The Ugly Sisters & Yer Wan' Panto which was on in the Olympia in Dublin. It was a lovely treat before Christmas.

The range not only includes Lipsticks but it also includes Mascara's that are inspired by hip hop and formulated using the latest colour and skincare technology, meaning it feels as good as it look. 
A couple of weeks ago Glossybox gave each subscriber the choice of what shade they wanted to receive in this months box as there was a choice of a nude shade or a wine shade another wise known as 'Vamp'. I opted to go for the 'Vamp' Shade as i'm a huge lover of Red and Wine shades when it comes to choosing Lipsticks. Plus it will complete any Winter look too.

Next up is this 'Light Up Your Face' Luminizer Palette from Essence. As a huge lover of Essence's Products i was delighted to open this month's box and see this inside. This strobing trio can be applied individually or in combination over the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose and above the cubit's bow. 
Each of the three powders have varying degrees of highlight, from a Light Pearl to a Golden Glow giving you the versatility to go from a day look to a night look. I'm looking forward to trying out this product in some of my looks especially my festive looks.

Price: £3.00


LIPCOTE BROWCOTE
On to the third product out of this month's box and its this Water Proof Brow Sealer 'Browcote' from Lipcote. This new Waterproof transparent gel tames and sets brows and eyebrow makeup for hours. 
The Brush Wand applicator glides on easily, tidying brows as it goes and setting the shape for a weightless finish that last's. As a fan of everything Brows related i will no doubt love using this to set my Brow product on my brows.

Price: £6.99


GOSH MONO EYESHADOW IN SAND
Next is this Mono Eyeshadow in the shade 013 Sand from Gosh. Partner your lips with this subtle shade.
