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.

DIY Christmas Nails for the lazy featuring Kiss Nails & Leighton Denny

Upcycling isn’t just for furniture. I’ve spent weeks searching for the perfect press on nails with a Christmas vibe but either everywhere was sold out or they just weren’t right. 
So I took matters in to my own hands.
My goal was simple: Cheap, quick, low effort and sparkly Christmassy goodness - this ruled out doing my own extensions or going to a salon!  I took some Kiss Acrylic French nails, reshaped them slightly to give a slightly more almond curve than true round. I then topped with Leighton Denny Twinkle Twinkle and my a stash of Christmas decals that I’ve had for yonks; they came in a Colour Club set many many years ago - can’t we please marvel at how far I’ve come since that post?!
I’m going to point out that using five year old decals is not the best option, they were brittle as f*ck and a bit of a nightmare to apply but my mind was set and after a few attempts I got there.
To add an extra strong finish I cured with two layers of Gelish Top It Off from my kit - I wouldn’t usually…

Foundation Focus - Revlon Colorstay For Normal/Dry Skin

We need to talk about brand consistency. I'm a fussy shopper but I'm also a lazy shopper. What I need from a brand is the ability to, once I’ve found my shade, know that I can go across the products in that brand with the confidence that everything matches the same. Think Benefit Cosmetics brow range - I'm shade 3 and no matter what product I lift I know that I'm going to be shade 3. 
Why can't this be the same with foundations? 

Lets take Revlon for example. Now I still haven't quite forgiven Revlon for discontinuing one of the best foundations I've ever tried. Their Age Defying foundation was one of the creamiest and dewiest foundations I've ever tried. It felt wonderful on my skin and I truly mourn it. 

I colour matched at Shade 10 - Buff for a tanned skin

And so I moved on to their Colorstay range. Colorstay was slightly more fluid and came in two formulas - one for dry and one for oily skin - but it was a bit of a nightmare in it's original bottle …

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…
