A little catchup.

Hola Lovlies!! 

It's been a while hasn't it? With Michelle embarking on her big move to the city of Man (Or Manchester as normal people call it) & me pretty much hibernating due to a lot of excess in London (yes I know I'm still going on about it!) plus some other top secret exciting things coming up in September, there's not been a lot going on.  

But now I'm breaking out of my wallow phase & seeking a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). This may or may not be helped by the fact that I was given 2 free lobsters & some crab today in work. Cut to me play Barefoot Contessa and whipping up some Lobster Pot Pie! I even made the pastry myself. Mucho self satisfaction going on.

My Instagram of the finished article. It was scrummy!
Prizes for those who get the reference ;)

In my hibernation I have also rediscovered my love doing my nails & below you can see my 2 latest nail art creations. I've even vined the mix & match so you can see each stage in progress!

I've got lots of ideas & my "Nail Inspo" is filling up with lots of pretty designs I want to recreate so hopefully they'll be good enough to show off!

Minions!! I haven't named them all yet so suggestions welcome. 

Mix & Match inspired by Sophy Robson & WAH nails!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Christmas Jumpers under a Tenner ft Tesco, Asda, Peacocks & KarmaClothing

So over the past few years, in keeping with the modern day obsession of all things simultaneously cute, ugly, and nostalgic, we have seen the comeback of Christmas jumpers.
Like most people however I haven't been able to join in the fun because I simply couldn't justify the cost. However this year I was determined and I have compiled a list of my favourite jumpers. My only stipulation? They're all under a tenner!

1. F&F Embellished Pull Me from Tesco £7: First & foremost I've only seen this 50% offer online so I'm not sure you'd get it in store. I love it because I'm obsessed with grey and I do like a good pun. The embellishment is totally on trend too so that's another box ticked! 2. F&F Nice Baubles from Tesco £6: again, I'm pretty sure this only meets the criteria online at 50% off but it's super cute and super cheap! And black. There's not enough black at Christmas in my opinion.  3. Black Rudolph from Karma Clothing £9.99: …

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.
