Touch Those Titties!


Girls (and guys) It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it's time to give yourself a good feel in the name of health & wellbeing. In order to promote this years BCAM myself and the other FABB bloggers you've heard me mention so often are getting together and fundraising for local charity Pretty In Pink.

For those who don't know the awesomeness of PIP, a bit back ground for you:

Founded in 2006 by Noleen Adair, Pretty n Pink is the only registered Breast Cancer charity in Northern Ireland. It is run by a very small team of people including a breast cancer survivor and local volunteers from across the province. All the funds raised go directly back to Breast Cancer patients and their families in Northern Ireland. 

I don't know about you but when it comes to things things like cancer, and other serious illnesses, but I tend to run and hide. The thought of sitting in that doctors office and hearing those words actually brings tears to my eyes. But we have to do it. 50,000 people are diagnosed every year with breast cancer. 12,000 die. That's about 1 in 4! Its not just women either, 300 of those diagnosed are men. And whilst 81% of women diagnosed are over 50, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in under 35s. Its also harder to spot pre-menopausal women so we have to be extra vigilant. 

Okay, that's the serious stuff out of the way. Now for the fun element!

As part of our fundraising we're offering an amazing Hamper raffled to anyone who donates £5 to our just giving page over at www.justgiving.co.uk/fabbham You can of course donate any amount, every little helps. But each £5 you send gets you 1 entry. £10 for 2, £20 for 4 etc.

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…
