Feeling Proud/Coral Crazy

This Saturday was Belfast Pride Festival and it was my first year marching in the full parade which I really enjoyed. Especially as I was representing my work in the parade which was a great opportunity. Here are my Day & Night FOTDs and some dodgy snaps of my nails & outfits (I tried doing proper posey OOTD pics but they looked naff so I scrapped them!)
NB: There is a lot of Coral going on in these looks. I'm Coral Crazy right now, as are most people, but as usual its taken me a while to find the right products and pieces that suit me so if you think I'm late to the party then I probably am but hey, like they say, fashionably late dahhhling ;)

Highlight of the weekend? Not even close, but a good nostalgic giggle nonetheless

So that was Pride! or at least that's the civilised version I'm showing you guys. I had a great time this year, the committee did an amazing job making it the biggest year yet (nearly 30,000 people!). We can only hope that next year is bigger and better and that the weather is just as behaved.

Winter Skin Survival For Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Every now and again I branch out from my tried and tested favourites in search of something new for my skin.  I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been doing this for a lot of years now, I’ve mostly found what works for my skin and I’ve settled on a routine that works for my budget and my schedule - cheap and quick if you’re wondering. But that doesn’t mean that I will end the search for new products. I’m just very careful how I do it. I live by samples and testers, I opt for the occasional beauty box or calendar, and I love love love finding miniatures and gift sets on offer after the holidays - I tend to stock up on products around this time and drag them out through the next year.



Which leads to my recent purchase of the Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar. It’s my 4th year in a row buying this calendar and I very much doubt I’ll miss it next year. Some of my absolute favourite products have come out of these calendars, the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream being one and my …

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
This year marks the first year that they have invited bloggers to a press showing and I'm so glad they did. I got to meet Grainne Maher of Pluck & Devour fame and catch up with Mark & Caoimhe from Benefit Ireland who were lovely as always!
My favourite items are pictured below as well as the new Benefit Fine One One which is a nifty bit of kit I can't wait to properly try out!

Favourite Accessories:
Sophie Hume Mini Satchel £330 (a girl can dream right?)
Neon yellow Pied A Terre bag £159
Biba Clutch £169
Pluck & Devour Pegasus Necklaces from £29.99

Stand out clothing lines were Linea (I love the beaded collar on this shirt), Biba (their formal wear makes me wish I had a ball to…

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…
