My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.

Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.
 First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit]
My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them.
Wah
Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography, my camera took a shit fit today)
Thirdly and I think most importantly I'm setting myself a new commandment when it comes to nail art. 
Thou Shalt Not Apply The Top Coat With Lights Off
It sounds so simple when you think about it. But bright spark here thought she'd be grand applying her Seche Vite by only the light of her trusty laptop. 
Fail.
I missed loads of spots around my nails resulting in chipping, peeling and quite a few repair jobs.

Ah well, I've had them on for a few days now & really like them but tomorrow shall be their last day... Maybe.

I'll leave you with these uh... beauties. A friend sent me a link on twitter suggesting (I'm hoping jokingly) I try them out. They're a bit extreme for my tastes but each to their own I guess!

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

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…
