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 ;)

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

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…
