Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser

So I bought this month's In Style magazine for the free bodyshop eyeliners & mascara. I'm such a sucker for freebies!
Anyway, inside the magazine was this tinted moisturiser, I knew instantly with it being shade 3 it would be too dark for me to wear normally but I was having a bad face day so I slapped it on just to try and hide my blotchiness.

It blends really well as you can see and despite being 2 shades darker than my normal tone didn't look completely ridiculous. It sort of looked if I'd suddenly developed a very dewey "two weeks in st tropez" tan over the space of our morning tea break. Sadly the moisturising factor was missing on my extremely dry skin. I had to apply some of the soap & glory body butter I carry with me to blend it a bit & moisturise my skin. And when I got home from work I had to wash it straight off as it had gone patchy.
Maybe if I were to get the correct shade in this it would be something for a good skin day. It worked great on my hands!

  1. I've been tempted to try this, but now I'm not so tempted! Hate the thought of something going patchy on my face where people might see me.

    Yeah I wasn't blown away but then my skin was having a very bad day! Maybe the patchiness wouldn't be so bad with the right shade & decent condition. :-/

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson





Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
