Bargain Basement

Well it's mid-season sale time again and most of the time I boycott sales as its super busy and usually the tat that they couldn't sell 4 years ago on the racks. Seen as I had a day off today I wandered round the shops in the hope of finding a nice plain jersey maxi dress (which never materialised).
I did however get a maxi skirt and a t-shirt - both from the sales!! 
The skirt is just what I was looking for and I know it's not going to be anyones cup of tea but here we go..

It's from the Lipsy sale and was £12.50, lovely colour and texture and I'm loving the contrasting waistband.
Next from the sales was this t-shirt from Topshop and was meant to be £12

I talked the guy into a further 15% off as it had make up on the collar. I don't want to go all Mary Portas on you but if a garment has ANYTHING wrong with it, make up, a defect or a pulled thread always ask for a discount. It's worth it in the end. For the sake of sticking this in the washing machine I got it for £10.20. You may not always get a discount but it's worth asking and most places usually will as what are they going to do with items with make up round collars?? Go for it.

Ps how orange was the girl that tried this on??!!!

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…
