Girly Sunday Funtimes!

Today myself and a whole bunch of Northern Irish bloggers, including the famous FABB babes, were invited to TK Maxx on the Boucher rd to go shopping and have a wee browse before they opened the store to the public. They even offered us and our friends and family 20% discount! Well you don't have to ask me twice.
Or my friends Carolyn & Gayle, so we decided to make a wee girly day of it and went for lunch and Lilypink bakery cupcakes afterwards. Nom.
I can never find anything in the clothing dept and shoes are a rarity so I went straight for cosmetics and my haul included 3 OPI polishes for £15, 3 New CID I-kiss pencils for a tenner and the Sally Hansen effects nail strips for only £4!! Add to that some awesome space themed pasta and a microwaveable Owl teddy (so cute!) and I'm all biz for my bargains.
I have to say TK Maxx are doing well in the moment in the beauty department my purchases came to £38.25 and I got about £8 off with the 20% but this haul should've cost me £93! That's a saving of £60! You really really can't be bad to that can you?
Now all I have to do is wait till next payday to go have another wee raid. I do believe I spotted some half price macadamia treatments.
To be continued ;)

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 …

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…
