Monday Mani Week 3... And 4!

Hey lovelies!! So I'm catching up on myself tonight as the last 2 week have been a touch crazy.

I've come to dread the January/February crossover as it means 2 things. I have to move house and I always get sick. Those who were here last year will remember I was ill, moved house AND went to IMATS all in one week! Mental.

Thankfully IMATS isn't till June this year so we don't have that again but I was struck by the dreaded Norovirus last week & this week is the big move.

Thats my excuse for not posting this on time and I'm sticking to it ;)

Moving on!

Week 3 itself was yellow and I used Ciaté with decal stickers. The star sign is Aquarius as the 23rd of Jan was the rise of Aquarius. And the swallows are just because swallows are cute. The decals are Nail Tattoos from Topshop and are great for reliving your youth if, like me, you were obsessed with transfer tattoos as a child!

Week 4 was green and I went for the 5 nail ombré fade starting out at a mint green and finishing at a gorgeous forest green.

You see, I may be too busy to upload my posts but I'm never too busy to sit down and paint my nails. Priorities eh?

Are you taking part in the challenge? Tag me @faeribex or Other Bex @bexberrymua on Instagram and let us know!

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…

So far I'm in love with Cupcake Queen, Halo & Caberet. My least favourite is Cutie Pie which despite 3 coats is the sheerest polish I've ever come across!!













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…
