AUGUST FAVOURITES 2016!!

Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome to today's post, I hope you are all having a lovely day!!

For today's post I am going to be sharing with you all my August Favourites post. I can't really believe we are in September already, this summer has went so quick but i'm looking forward to Autumn especially using the more intensive moisturisers and serums to prep my skin for winter along with all the Autumn clothes and styles.

But now on to the products in which i have been loving for the month of August. There has been quite a few products i have been loving and even though i would have loved to put them all in to this post, i have narrowed it down to six products.


BLACK LIQUID EYELINER MAKEUP GALLERY DEALZ 

Up first i'm going to start off my August Favourites post with this Black Liquid Eyeliner from the Makeup Gallery range at Dealz. I bought this a few weeks ago as i was very intrigued to try out more products from the Makeup Gallery range. I decided to give the Liquid Eyeliner a go as its a product i love to use when creating evening or night-time looks. Since using the eyeliner i have found it to be amazing and so easy to apply to your top lash lines. 
The Brush at the end of the actual eyeliner is thin and makes it very easy to achieve a straight thin or thick link on your top lash lines. It is also long lasting and wears for up to 24 hours on the eyes which again makes it perfect for night-time looks. I would defiantly recommend this eyeliner as i absolutely love it and feel it is defiantly up their with the top eyeliners currently on the market.

SHOP: DEALZ STORES
PRICE: €1.50
SCORE: 10/10


HAIRON DE-TANGLED BRUSH
Next up is this De-tangled Brush from Hairon, i received this in July's Glossybox and since then i haven't stopped using it. I especially love to use this just after i have washed my hair as it becomes super tangled due to my hair been really long. The brush simply de-tangles my hair using a gentle brushing method, which leaves my hair tangled free. You can also use it on dry hair too and with it been a small brush it can simply fit in your makeup bag so that you can carry it in your handbag when your out and about. 
Not only do I love how this brush leaves my hair tangled free but i also love the how the brush has been designed, as it has been designed to fit in the palm of your hand for more grip when brushing your hair through. I also love the colour too as its a real 'Tiffney Blue' shade. I would defiantly recommend this Hairon De-tangling brush to everyone especially if you have really long hair that tangles quite easy because this really does in work wonders on maintaining tangled free hair.

SHOP: HAIRON.CO.UK
PRICE: £6.99
SCORE: 9/10


BOTANICS PURIFYING FACE SCRUB

On to my third product and its this Botanics Purifing Face Scrub. I love using a good face scrub especially this one as i like to use it first thing in the mornings as it not only wakes me up but it buffs away impurities to reveal brighter healthier skin. I love how it exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling soft and incredible smooth. 
The scrub contains refining walnut shell to buff away flaky skin while the crushed apricot seeds gently sweep away any impurities. Also with the scrub containing hibiscus which is a natural brightness booster that brightens skin along with smoothing the skin too. I would defiantly recommend this scrub to anyone who is looking for brighter and smoother skin. 

SHOP: BOOTS STORES
PRICE; €2.99 (normal price €5.99)
SCORE: 10/10


VASALINE SPRAY MOISTURISER

Next up is this Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser, I decided to purchase this in the Cocoa Radiance Fragrance because it smelled absolutely gorgeous!!
This is the perfect moisturiser to use on your skin if you are in a rush in the mornings like me as this is a super quick moisturiser which you can just spray on your skin after having a shower in which it will absorb supper quick leaving you with very soft skin. 

SHOP: BOOTS STORES
PRICE: €6.00
SCORE: 9/10


LACURA NAIL HARDENER

On to my fifth favourite for the month of August and its this Nail Hardener Polish by Lacura which is from Aldi's. I decided to purchase due to the fact my nails had become very brittle and very soft. Since using this product my nails have become more harder and they have grown a lot longer. 
I like to apply two coats of this Nail Harder to my nails on non painted nails or over painted nails. It also leaves a glossy look to my nails which is really nice as it gives a natural look to them.

SHOP: ALDI STORES
PRICE: €2.49
SCORE: 9/10


ICONA MILANO EMOTION ALLOWED MASCARA

My last favourite for the month of August is this Icona Milano Emotion Allowed Mascara, I received this in my July Glossybox and throughout the month of August I really made use of applying it to my lashes as it is long lasting along with it been water, sweat and humidity resistant making it a faultless choice to wear in any weather or occasion.
The mascara itself gives lashes a bold look with its intense colour and the rich creamy formation is build able as it creates a defined look for the day and an amped up false lash effect for a gorgeous night-time look. Personally i have loved using this mascara as it simply creates a natural day-time look to a bold intense night-look in seconds.

PRICE: £13.04
SCORE: 9/10

So up first is this month's box, to celebrate the 5th Birthday of Glossybox this months box is a collector's edition as its in collaboration with Rae Feather. The box it self is a pink and grey coloured box with the monograms of GB (Glossybox) on the top lid of the box. 
Overall i love the look of this months box as it's a box in which i am no doubt going to keep as i'm a huge fan of keeping collector edition boxes.
Now on to what is inside the box, and this month there is a selection of 5 products which consists of three full size product and two sample sized products.


MUA EYESHADOW PALETTE (GLITTER BALL)
On to the first product out of this months box and up first is this MUA Eyeshadow Palette. Before the beginning of the month Glossybox Subscribers where given the chance to pick their own palette. I decided to go for the Glitter Ball Palette as it had a variety of spectacular eye-shadows that will add some sparkle to my eyes. 
As you can see from the palette the shades look vibrant, also the pigment is gorgeous as well as its really bright and colourful. Also the shades offer a range of looks you create to your eyes by using some of the amazing shades!! I'm looking forward to using some of this shades in some of the upcoming tutorials in which i have planned all this month!!

Full Sized Price: £4.00



MUD MASKY PURIFYING RECOVERY MASK
Next up is this Mud Masky Facial Detox Purifying Recovery Mask. This is a 20ml size which looks very much like a sample size. This is one of the first PH Balanced facial treatments. It is formulated using all natural ingredients and contains no parabens, but still manages to thoroughly detoxify skin. It doesn't stop there though, it also refines and tightens pores, hydrates, brightens and smooths skin and generally gives it a boost, basically this mask really does have it all!! I will say that I am a huge fan of facemasks, i would generally apply one twice a week to give my face a boost of hydration, so next time out i'm going to give this one a go as it sounds amazing. Regarding the size of the product i will say that i think you would only get around 2 face masks out of this 20ml tube as it is really small.

Full Sized Price: £53.00


SPA TO YOU DEEP PORE FACIAL CLEANSING BRUSH
On to my third item out of this months box and it this Deep Pore Facial Cleansing Brush by Spy To You. This soft bristles are specially designed to help buff away dead skin cells for a deep but gentle facial cleanse. The combination of silky soft bristles and silicone cushions also help to massage the skin to improve micro circulation for renewed radiance. 
A few months ago i actually bought a electronic Cleansing Brush which i tend to use in the mornings, so i'm looking forward to using this as it sounds really good. And with me been a huge skin-care freak i'll give it a go!!

Full Sized Price: £6.99


COWSHED WILD COW BODY LOTION
Next up is this Cowshed, Wild Cow invigorating Body Lotion, which again comes in a very small sample size. As well as giving your skin an energy buzz with its boosting blend of lemongrass, ginger and rosemary, this luxe body lotion deeply moisturiese skin with Shea and Cocoa Butter. Made in Englan using natural ingredients, it is packed full of skin loving essential oils and has a light, uplifting oriental fragrance.

Foundations for oily skin can be quite the saviours for those prone to a shiny glare around midday. Stay fresh and matte with our pick of the 10 best liquid and cream formulas around...
Are you prone to shine or blemish outbursts? The best foundation for oily skin will work miracles for your complexion, and choosing the right one for your skin type can make the world of difference - not only to the way you look but also the way you feel.

In the past, you may have been fooled into thinking that foundations will clog your skin, therefore aggravating an already unbalanced complexion. But beauty favourites like Estee Lauder and Laura Mercier offer feather-light foundations that glide on, without feeling cakey or too made up. These types will also be buildable so that you can minimise both the size and appearance of your pores.

If your skin is of an oily nature, you should be looking for foundations with a matte finish that will absorb the moisture. For instant effects, look to Clarins and Chanel for even coverage. These foundations will also be long-wearing so that you don't have to reapply and cause a further imbalance of oil on your skin.

Stila's £25 Natural Finish Oil-Free Makeup is one we'd certainly recommend. An instant hit on the beauty desk, this product comes in a choice of 12 shades and has an ultra-light formula that glides on with ease. Despite the luminous feel, this liquid foundation provides fabulous coverage that lasts all day with a soft dewy finish.

WHAT I ATE WEDNESDAY {17TH AUGUST 2016}

Hello my Lovelies, 

Welcome to today's post, i hope you are all having a wonderful day. I got some really exciting news yesterday, Stylish and Fabulous has been Shortlisted in this years #Littlewoodsirelandblogawards in the Beauty and Fashion Categorie. This is the second year in a row in which we have made into the Shortlist and I would love to go one better then last year. If you guys would like to vote for Stylish and Fabulous in both the Beauty and Fashion categories I will leave all the details you need below this post. 

Anyway moving on to today's post and for today's one i'm going to share with you all a 'What I ate Wednesday Post', i haven't did one of these posts in ages so i just thought today i would do one for you all.

Breakfast
So up first this morning was Breakfast, considering i was up until quarter to 4 in the morning due to me having an awful night of not sleeping, i did however wake up at the normal time of 8 o'clock for Breakfast, I love to change around my breakfast's during the week, i get bored of eating the same thing 7 day's in a row, so this morning i decided to go for some Rolled Wholegrain Oats and Hot milk. I know it seems like a really warm breakfast ideal for winter and not summer, but i love something warm especially hot oats its so yummy!! I also decided to go for a Glass of Apple Juice as i just love a good Juice in the mornings!!


Lunch/Dinner
Now that I'm back at the gym in the evenings, i like to have Dinner instead of Lunch as it digests a lot better before i head to the gym in the evening. Over the past few months, i would have normally have had my dinner an hour or two before going to the gym, but i felt so full that i could barely move so by having my dinner at lunch i find it a lot easier. I would simply have a light snack before going. For today's dinner I had a Breadcrumb fish Fillet with some Home-made Chips and some Beans, yes i know it wasn't the healthiest of dinners today but this was my mid-week treat!!


Snack
As I was heading to Gym i decided to go for a Flahvans Oaty Flapjack and a small packed of Rasins as its quite a light combination of food before doing a workout.


Mid-Evening Snack

Lastly for my Mid-Evening Snack I decided to go for a Ciabatta Sub with a slice of Bacon in it as i was starving from doing my workout.

Weekend Beauty Buy's!!

Hello my Lovelies,

How was everyone's weekend, i hope you all had a lovely one.

For today's post I'm going to be sharing with you all my Weekend Beauty Buy's, basically this is a post on some Beauty Products that I bought over the Weekend which i felt was of interest to you readers!!

PRO LIQUID EYELINER FROM THE MAKEUP GALLERY

So up first i'm going to start off with this Pro Liquid Eyeliner from the Makeup Gallery in Dealz. In the past i have tried the Makeup Gallery's Bronzer which was really good, so i was really intrigued to try out some of there eye products as they look really nice. The Pro Liquid Eyeliner is long lasting with intense colour to give a bold and beautiful look to your eyes. 
What i like about the product is that the eye applicator (brush) is really thin and long which i feel will make it a lot easier to apply the product to your eyes. So I'm looking forward to trying this out on my eyes especially for night look.
This only cost €1.50 which was really cheap, but even though it isn't an expensive eyeliner i still feel on my first impressions that this will work out really nice on the eye's

Price: €1.50
Shop: dealz.com


BOTANICS PURIFYING FACE SCRUB 'ALL BRIGHT'

Next up is this Botanics Purifying Face Scrub 'All Bright'. This Scrub buffs away impurities to revel brighter skin, It is also suitable for all skin types too. I love a good Face Scrub, I like to use a scrub on my face in the morning and evening but mostly in the morning as it removes any impurities such as oil and dirt away from my face. 

This scrub in particular contains refining walnut shell to buff away flaky skin while crushed apricot seeds gently sweep away any impurities. Also the scrub hibiscus contains Hibiscus which is a Natural Brightness Booster that brightens the skin along with smoothing the skin. 

I'm looking forward to using this on my skin as i just love scrubs for my face and with it contain the Brightness Booster Hibiscus, I can't wait to see the results of brighter skin.

Price: €2.99 (this product is on offer from €5.99)
Shop: boots.ie


VASELINE SPRAY MOISTURISER

I then bought this Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser, i decided to buy the Cocoa Radiance fragrance because it smelled gorgeous, I have used these in the past and I absolutely love using them.
 I love these Spray and Go Moisturisers as they are super handy to just spray on to your skin after you have had a shower or bath.
 I also love how the moisturiser absorbs really quickly along with leaving your skin super soft and looking radiant. It is also ideal for helping dry skin.

Price: €3.45 (on offer in store and online)
Shop: boots.ie


COLLECTION GEL NAIL POLISH

Next up I bought this Gel Nail Polish from Collection, I actually found this for sale in a sale basket in boots as it was reduced in price from €5.75 to €2.50. 
The shade in which i got was Think Pink 8, which is a shade i love to apply to my Nails.
 I am also a huge fan of Gel Nail Polishes as i feel the product stays longer on your nails, also with this particular brand the brush is quite wide so you can apply the nail polish a lot more easier to your nails.

Price: €2.50 from €5.75 
Shop: boots.ie


LACURA NAIL HARDENER

On to my last product in which i bought over the weekend and its this Nail Hardener which is from the range Lacura Beauty which is available in Alid's.
 I decided to buy this as over the last few months I have noticed my nails a little brittle and not as hard as what they use to so Iv'e decided to give this a go to see if it works or not. The formula which is contained in this product is micro-diamond particles which helps to prevent nails from splitting and breaking, giving them a beautiful shine. 
And with the regular use of this product your nails can then become stronger and harder. So I'm going to give it a go and see how well it goes. I bought this for only €2.49 which was amazing value in Aldi's.

Price: €2.49
Shop: Aldi.ie

What is Friendship | in collaboration with Huggle!!

Hello my Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a lovely day. So I got some exciting news on Monday as Huggle got in contact with me to do a collaboration post on Friendship, So as you can probably tell i was truly excited to be getting the chance to talk about Friendship as its a subject that we all like to have a good chat about,  So with out further a do here it is.......

Friendship is one of the most important things in our lives and Huggle  has asked me to write about what i think makes a good friend, Huggle is a social app which helps you to discover and connect with people who go to the places you go. It's a wonderful app for making friends and meeting like-minded people. You can download it here.


After spending today chatting over lovely food with one of my best friends this has put me in the best mind to sit down and talk to you all about friendship. I believe that friendship is part of who we are as people. I feel we were put on this planet to make our journey throughout friendship, however sometimes friendships lasts and some sadly leave our lives too, but its ok it only means you've had that time with that person, be it good or bad.  Personally I feel you 'loose some you win some' its a saying i have always lived by as i have experienced it myself throughout my journey throughout friendship where i have lost friendships and I have gained some amazing friendships. 


From experience I have had it all from Childhood Friendships to Loosing Friends  and to gaining Friends for Life. But one thing i do no for sure is that you need a friend, There is no perfect formula that creates a good friend, it doesn't matter what shape or form friends come in, they can truly make an amazing difference to your life in so many way's. Also it doesn't matter how many friends you have, if you have one good friend who you can talk to, share your problems and above all support you through difficult times then you know you have a friend for life. Having friends is amazing as you can share anything (well maybe not everything) but certain things that you can't talk to your Family about and above all else they are not there to judge you but to support you.



I myself have had amazing friendships, one of which would be one of my Childhood Friendships, where i made friends with one friend when we were in Junior Infants Class (you know who you are) and 26 years later we are still the best of friends. Although we may go 3 to 4 months without speaking to each other which is down to our hectic lives we still mange a catch up over coffee and have a great chat. I feel a friendship like this one really stands out as been an amazing one as she has been always there for me when i need to talk or if i need a favour or two. But she will always know no matter what happens or how hectic our lives our we will always be best friends.


Even throughout the likes of School and College it can be really hard to keep friendships going especially if your friends are not going to the same School/College as you and i have experienced that myself in which I lost a few friends as they ended up going to a different Schools/Colleges, which made it quite hard to keep in touch. But I have to be honest even though i lost friends i actually gained some really amazing ones throughout my School and College years, which like my first ever Childhood friendship they have lasted and I am proud to call them my Best Friends. 


Below is a list of the different types of Friendships there is. I myself have went over each categories and i have singled out certain people who i feel fall into these categories and the impact they have had on my life. 




Family
Family aren't just your family they are your friends too and they are probably your closest excepted you probably don't know it yet

Childhood Friendship
This categorie is for those people you grew up with and made the earliest of memories with. You might have been born around the same time as them and you feel as though you're always going to be best friends as you don't know life without them. 

Your Partner/Husband/Wife/Girlfriend/Boyfriend
Your partner can be not only your partner but your friend too as you chose to be with them. 

Work Colleagues
The people you work with on a daily basics, if you're really lucky you may get on really well with those you work with and build good friendships with them. Also with out your work friends how would you get through the day..... 

A Pet
Loads of people adore their own pets and talk to them like they are there friends. I myself have 3 Dogs and 2 Cats, and I sometimes find myself talking to them like there real humans 

Adulthood Friendships
Throughout my Adulthood i have made many Friendships and I luck forward to making more as i go through life!!

That Friend for Life
Its really nice to think that we have that one amazing friend that we know is going to be in our life forever no matter what happens. A friend that you can go for weeks without talking to and when you eventually meet up its like nothing ever changed







Within my Friendships I have known my Childhood Friend a long time compared to my other Best Friends, but I wouldn't treat them any different from my Childhood Friend as they are all equal and are totally different in there own ways. I admire my Friends for who they are and what they are, they keep me grounded and I know that their always there when i need to talk to them or if i have problem that I need to share. Without them I would be nothing!! 









I really do have some amazing friends that i wouldn't swap for the world, ones i have know for the majority of my life, ones that i spent a number of years in School and College with and others that i have only known for the past year or two.  I value all types of friendships and you should too, and if your reading this and thinking of someone or a friend why not drop them a text or give them a call. 

" A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lies in the heart, true friends never part"

I would love to know what you think of friendship and what it means to you, leave me a comment below as to what you think!!!
