QUICK AND HEALTHY SNACKS ON-THE-GO

QUICK AND HEALTHY SNACKS ON-THE-GO/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

Hi beautiful!  Hope you are having a great week so far!  I hear a lot of people talking about what they should have for snacks throughout the day.  Some people are looking for convenience, others desire pure nutritional satisfaction.  I really enjoy eating healthy and balanced meals throughout the day, but of course, my diet isn’t 100% perfect all the time.  There are definitely days, especially if I’m working or out on the go where I maybe don’t have the time or resources to access the healthiest food choices. This is when I might make an exception and try not to stress over it, trying to make sure I plan ahead next time so I am prepared with healthy snack options.

SIMPLIFY YOUR MORNING ROUTINE WITH STOKED OATS

SIMPLIFY YOUR MORNING ROUTINE WITH STOKED OATS/FIT.FABULOUS.BEAUTIFUL

Good morning, hope you’re all having a great weekend so far!  I’m super excited to tell you about my all time favourite breakfast!  Stoked Oats saves the day by making it easy to enjoy your breakfast with virtually no hassle, so you have more time to focus on your morning hustle each day.

 My go to breakfast meal has always been a hearty bowl of oats topped with mixed berries and nuts.  But the one thing that I have never really enjoyed is taking the extra time to add all the additional ingredients, because it’s a bit of a hassle when I’ve got other stuff to do — such as  hair washing day or an extra early start.  Sure preparing your meals  the night before can save you time, but who wants more dirty dishes?

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!!!!!
