Threading disaster


Karma has kicked me right in the arse for straying from Millies to get my brows threaded.

I went to a salon that I used to frequent when I was an avid waxer as they had just brought threading in - what a nightmare! The lady who did it was also in the middle of dying some girls hair and left her sat in the chair while she took me downstairs to the beauty rooms. In hindsight this should have started the alarm bells ringing.

So in this darkened room I lay on the bed and she announced that she would do the threading first and then tint them...ummm, what?! Surely that is the first rule of eyebrow school that you do the tint first??? Then she took her thread and did what can only be described as violate my eyebrows. I was left with sore, red, inflamed and bleeding skin. This wasn't right.


Then I had the joy of her sticking what must have been rubbing alcohol on them and I thought I was going to pass out. Around this time I remembered that she was still intending on tinting what was left of my brows. This done I paid, kept my mouth shut and left to have a wee cry.

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…

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…
