July Favourites



A quick post to show you what I've been loving throughout July!

1: My Bobbi Brown life saving kit, every morning these two little miracle workers cover eye bags, spots and redness around my face. Iv got the corrector in Light Bisque and the concealer duo in Ivory/Pale yellow. Normally concealers dry out on my throughout the day but this is lovely and creamy and stays on all day

2: Toni & Guy heat defence spray. I've loved this for years and it smells gorgeous! Leave my hair lovely and shiny

3: Nuxe dry oil, got a sample of this (and the shimmer one) from Space NK as part of their loyalty scheme. I use this on my face at night after cleansing and it really helps get rid of spots (believe it or not!) and keeps my skin tone even and blemish's at bay

4: High beam and Posie tint, I'm still rating these pretty highly! Love their blendability and staying power, colour, highlighting ability.... need I go on...!

5: Lastly..My Favourite mascara at the moment is back to my old reliable Dior Extase. The bigger tube is empty so I'm back to using my little tester. I'm really fickle with mascara so I'll probably have another new favourite in a week or two!

Lastly I know this was only a couple of days ago and not really July but it's definitely still worth posting about! Leeds Pride was on Sunday and apart from a little bit of rain at the start it was a brilliant day! Cheesy music, drag queens, dancing, drinking, sunshine, rides(of the amusement kind) and lots of love!

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…

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!!













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…
