ESQIDO CRUELTY-FREE LUXURY MINK LASHES – THE STEPHANIE LASH

ESQIDO CRUELTY-FREE LUXURY MINK LASHES - THE STEPHANIE LASH-FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL
False lashes are the perfect indulgence for those special occasions and nights out like Valentine’s Day, when you want to add a little more glam to your look.  But, to be perfectly honest I was never really a big fan of them.  I found them to be very uncomfortable to wear and honestly a complete waste of money – until now!!!   In the past I had only ever tried synthetic lashes, although most brands claim that you can wear their lashes a few times over, I never really got more than one use out of them.  But then I discovered ESQIDO!

 

 A few weeks back I was contacted by ESQIDO and asked if I wanted to try and review a set of their cruelty-free Mink Strip Lashes!

STAY HYDRATED WITH FRUIT INFUSED WATER

STAY HYDRATED WITH FRUIT INFUSED WATER/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Good morning Beauties, I hope everyone had a great week!  One of the things I mentioned in my last post was starting off the New Year with a healthy start!  Now that we have had time to reflect on the past year and set our goals for 2018, it’s time to give our body what it needs to function optimally – H2o!

Staying hydrated is a key element to being fit and staying healthy.  Our body uses water in our cells, organs, and muscle tissues to help regulate temperature and maintain other day-to-day bodily functions. Even being slightly dehydrated could  result in a slower metabolism.  When we are properly hydrated the health and beauty benefits are endless.  Because we lose water continuously through breathing, sweating, and regular digestion, it’s very important to rehydrate regularly by drinking fluids and eating foods containing plenty of water.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LASHES, POST-EXTENSIONS – KEEPING YOUR LASH GAME STRONG!

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LASHES, POST-EXTENSIONS - KEEPING YOUR LASH GAME STRONG!/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Good morning Beauties!  Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!  Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite tips for keeping your lashes healthy.  Day after day we are following countless beauty trends to achieve the look we desire, but by far the most prominent trend in 2017 was eyelash extensions. We’re all a little guilty of wanting those sky-high lashes and this semi-permanent option allows you to roll out of bed looking like you just applied  3 coats of mascara without all the fuss.  As per my November post “ALL GLAMMED UP”  , I was drawn in by the trend and had the most talented lash artist create the most glamorous set of Mega Lashes for me.

FANCY OATMEAL RECIPES WORTH WAKING UP FOR!

FANCY OATMEAL RECIPES WORTH WAKING UP FOR/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Let me set the record straight:  I pretty much eat the same thing for breakfast 365 days of the year. That being said, I do think it’s good to switch things up every once in a while. Winter time is my favorite time of year to experiment in the kitchen.  Snowy days call for more time indoors and more time for baking, recipe testing and DIY projects.  Eating the same bowl of oats each and every day is always nutritious , but this holiday season I want to tantalize my taste buds.

Join me in testing out these great new recipes from Joanna Stankiewicz and see if you ever find breakfast boring again.  Lets get cooking!!!!!

ALL GLAMMED UP – EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LASH EXTENSIONS

ALL GLAMMED UP - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LASH EXTENSIONS/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

Good morning my loves!  I am so excited to share this new post with you.  If you are anything like me, big beautiful lashes are one thing I never leave the house without.  Unfortunately for me this doesn’t come naturally, it requires multiple step by step techniques to make my lashes look big and bold.  Although I’ve experimented with false eyelashes, I am not a huge fan of how they feel on my eyes, and would prefer applying a few layers of mascara instead, but this still can be time-consuming.  And without the right products I never seem to get the results I desire.  Luckily I have discovered Rosalash!   Today I am going to share everything about my lash extension experience with you – why I love them, maintenance, where to go, and more!

ALL NATURAL DIY MAKEUP REMOVER

ALL NATURAL DIY MAKEUP REMOVER/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

 

Good morning my Beauties!!!  Happy Wednesday!  I thought I would share another one of my favorite all natural DIY beauty products.  If you care about natural skin care and healthy glowing skin, then I think this is the perfect product for you to try.  A simple two ingredient recipe that will have you tossing your drugstore version aside.

 Although makeup remover can be quick and easy to apply, it contains many active cleansing ingredients. Unless washed off thoroughly after each use a residue is left behind exposing your skin to excess amounts of various chemicals. These ingredients can result in dry irritated  skin.  Most makeup removers also contain added fragrance and preservatives such as formaldehyde.

What’s the most important thing you consider when choosing a makeup remover?

THE "DIRTY DOZEN" - FRUITS AND VEGGIES THAT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS TRY TO BUY ORGANIC/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

Hello Lovelies!  I hope you’re all doing great this weekend!  Today I wanted to share a little something about buying organic.  It’s extremely important to eat a lot of fresh plant-based foods.   Not only are they good for your skin but  they make your body feel good, give you energy and help keep you lean without calorie restricting.  But knowing what produce is safe and what items to stay away from, can be a taunting task!  Find out wich produce items you should always buy organic, whenever possible.

You can’t expect to fuel your body and achieve optimal health by eating food, laced with toxic chemicals, that your body doesn’t recognize.  So, why settle for just getting by when you could be thriving?
