Selfridges Festival Beauty Box

Aloha! How is everyone today? Not gonna lie I had the best day with some of my besties. We went to our local Hilton in Templepatrick for a Spa day & then wedding dress shopping for my friend who recently got engaged!! Feeling very relaxed & very grown up right now, I'll be honest. 


Bringing me back to my youth is the Selfridges Festival Beauty Box you see pictured above! I picked this up the other week in London and have slowly but surely been making my way through the goodies inside. If I like them enough I may even tell you more about them! (Spoiler alert: I definitely am "in Like" & "Almost Love" with some of these so you will definitely be hearing more!)

For now I'll leave you with a few snaps of the contents. Not pictured in close up are the NPW face wipes & Violent Lips Lip Appliques because... Well they're face wipes & unused lip tattoos. Only so much you can do with that! 


 Illamasqua Liquid Metal metallic cream
Coloursmash Hair Shadow
I was really having fun with the dotty tissue paper the box came with. Loves me some funky tissue paper!!
NPW chubby glitter stick
Topshop lip crayon in Powder Room

5 reasons to visit the new and improved Galgorm Resort and Spa

In Northern Ireland there are maybe a handful of places that come to mind when you talk about true luxury and I am very grateful that the best of the best of those is right on my doorstep. I am talking, of course, about Galgorm Resort & Spa
Coming from Antrim, the Galgorm was the place to be. I've been to several weddings there, I even went to my 6th form formal there - I guess the younguns would call it Prom now, eh? But in all these years of living literally twenty minutes away I have never had the chance to enjoy their infamous spa facilities. All that changed when I was invited to attend the launch of the newly refurbished Spa at Galgorm.  What I didn't realise was that not only would we be getting to SEE the new facilities we were also getting the chance to TRY them! I think you can imagine my face when I realised that I was throughly unprepared, without a swimsuit; but did that stop me? Not a jot!

So as you read through the rest of this article I want you to be keenly…

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…
