Death Of The Journalist.

Last night I went to a Scroobius Pip gig with a few friends & had a thoroughly ole fashioned good time. Now for those of you who never heard of him, or his musical partner Dan Le Sac, please don't ask me to describe his music. It's not Rap, it's not Beat Poetry, It's not Hip Hop, It's not Rock, but it's kind of all of them at the same time and much more. Just have a listen and see. The title of this post is a song off the album if that sways you any.

So here's my makeup for the evening & the reason for this post.
Nothing spectacular but I'm pretty much in love with this lipstick.

It is Clinique Colour Surge in shade 12 Flamenco & it's beaut. From what I can gather it not available anymore beyond the likes of ebay. It's semi Matte, long lasting and super red! Love love love gush gush gush. Yeah so anyway heres a few pics from the night & you can see how it (and my sobriety) fairs.

looking special with scroob himself
puppet poetry
signed album to add to my burgeoning vinyl collection!

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…
