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!

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…
