New Favourites and old classics

Recently it was my best friend Gayle's birthday and we decided to paint the town. It's been a while since I've done a face of the day post because I basically wear variations on a theme at the moment (peachy coral tones if you're interested) but I thought I'd share this for a few reasons.

The first being that I'm in love with my new Inglot eyeshadow in shine. It's a lovely subtle pink with a slight shimmer and I can't stop wearing it.

The second being that Gayle looks gorge in her birthday outfit and new haircut! I was having a fussy clothes day so went for an old favourite. Simple but comfy.

Lastly because we went to Rainbow for dinner. My new favourite place and this is my last stop in systematically telling the whole world about it! The food was amazing, I mean look at it (ok I wasn't too fussed on the sweet potato mash but I could eat the bang bang chicken every day). The cocktail tea set is too cute and devilishly easy to drink. And the desserts... Did I mention I love this place? Ok I'll shut up now.

We finished the night with good old wholesome bingo. Tranny Bingo. Who doesn't love a caberet that comes with the chance to win £500? Sadly it wasn't us. But fun was definitely had by all.

    1. The Tea set is by Hendricks & is so cute! The eyeshadow is shade 48 I think. Inglot are so awkward with their naming system lol

Five (ish) products I’m loving from the The Body Shop

Entering your teens in the nineties basically meant you were obsessed with three things: Glitter hair mascara, Adidas poppers, and The Body Shop White Musk perfume. Honestly, if you added a Fruit of the loom t-shirt, an elastic swirly arm band tattoo, a bhindi - no one knew the meaning of the phrase 'cultural appropriation' back then but I was very in to spiritualism and the third eye - and a dozen teeny tiny multicoloured butterfly clips you would have an actual picture of me.
Sitting here, days before we enter 2019 where I will turn THIRTY FOUR, all of these trends are vengefully back with the exception of the t-shirts - poor Fruit of the Loom - but theres only one that I will be partaking of and that is rediscovering my love for The Body Shop. Although if you handed me some glittery butterfly clips I would absolutely wear those.
With my rediscovered love of TBS I have thrown myself in to building up a collection. I love that I can buy, guilt free, knowing that they are cruelt…

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…

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…
