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.

Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast. I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare. 
Spoiler alert: I loved them. 

The course was three treatments over three months - slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers scheduleand their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my first Therapie post I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love. 
It’s important to note that …

Crazy Rich Asians

Based on the novel of the same name, Crazy Rich Asians has some crazy expectations to meet and you’d be forgiven for writing it off as a diversity quota flick. Here’s why you shouldn’t.  I was so excited to hear about the release of Crazy Rich Asians, finally I would be able to watch my favourite Netflix sub genre - Korean Romcoms - on the big screen and give myself a night off from the subtitles. Some might be thinking that this film was going to be full of ‘smack you in the face’ wokeness and weighted down by the pressure to perform well internationally due to its entire Asian cast. In reality Crazy Rich Asians is like all good romcoms… good! The romance is front and centre, the comedy is paced well, with with a delightful wink to the audience when needed, and the stereotypes are kept to a bare minimum even then only being used to subvert your expectations. Oh I do love a bit of subversion. In fact most of the familiarity in Crazy Rich Asians come from the genre rather than the cultur…

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…
