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.

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…

Ciaté Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar Week 1

I know you've already seen Day 1 but here are the rest of week ones goodies!

So far I'm in love with Cupcake Queen, Halo & Caberet. My least favourite is Cutie Pie which despite 3 coats is the sheerest polish I've ever come across!!













Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…
