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

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

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…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …
