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 ;)

Winter Skin Survival For Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Every now and again I branch out from my tried and tested favourites in search of something new for my skin.  I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been doing this for a lot of years now, I’ve mostly found what works for my skin and I’ve settled on a routine that works for my budget and my schedule - cheap and quick if you’re wondering. But that doesn’t mean that I will end the search for new products. I’m just very careful how I do it. I live by samples and testers, I opt for the occasional beauty box or calendar, and I love love love finding miniatures and gift sets on offer after the holidays - I tend to stock up on products around this time and drag them out through the next year.



Which leads to my recent purchase of the Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar. It’s my 4th year in a row buying this calendar and I very much doubt I’ll miss it next year. Some of my absolute favourite products have come out of these calendars, the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream being one and my …

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
This year marks the first year that they have invited bloggers to a press showing and I'm so glad they did. I got to meet Grainne Maher of Pluck & Devour fame and catch up with Mark & Caoimhe from Benefit Ireland who were lovely as always!

Lunch on the go when you’re Coeliac in Belfast City Centre

It may sound weird but there’s never a better time to be diagnosed with an illness than today. We live in a world where medicine is changing daily and, when it comes to dietary requirements, the options available in restaurants and food retailers is growing beyond anything we ever imagined. That being said it can still be tricky to know where to go if you're a Coeliac in a rush, or trying to keep to a budget. One of the key things I have found since having to switch to a gluten free diet is that lunch times are the hardest. Especially when you’re disorganised like me and have a low key hatred of cheese and ham sambos and tinned soup. Luckily I have recently started working in belfast city centre and it turns out that an hour over lunch is just the perfect amount of time to go exploring to find new lunchy destinations. I’ll miss the likes of Greggs for easiness and cheapness but I’ll be damned if I’m getting stuck with another crap brownie* for lunch.  And so I hit the streets. I hav…
