S/S 2013 goodies from NYC, Rimmel & Sally Hansen

Last night I got to check out some of the new S/S Favourites from NYC, Rimmel & Sally Hansen courtesy of the lovely Fiona from CODY PR & Paddy from Makeup Pro Store. They introduced us to some new products and reintroduced some old faves and Paddy, who is one of Belfast's most well known make up artists, gave a short lecture on the new trends in makeup (such as blending different shades of foundation for contouring instead of using powders to keep your make up looking dewy)
I had a great time and have madly fallen for both Apocalips & Appelcious. You can see below I'm wearing Appelicious in Big Apple Red in my FOTD/NOTD. I'm also wearing NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara and Quick Drying Nail Polish in High Line Green (those of you who watch the voice may have noticed Jessie J wearing a similar green for the live auditions. Or is that just my obsession that made me zone in on them?)
Not bad if I do say so myself. Especially when you can spend less than a tenner for the lot!

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…
