Faeriwood Kitchen: Brownie Edition


Something a little more lifestyle than beauty today in the form of a recipe. I feel the need to share because ever since I made these Baileys Marshmallow Brownies a few weeks ago I haven't been able stop thinking about them!

Side note: The measurements are in cup measurements because I'm lazy & when making things up off the top of my head I find it easier than weighing everything! 

Ingredients:
1 cup baking flour
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup hot chocolate powder
1/2 oil veg oil
1/2 cup of melted dark chocolate (I used pure cacao I found in TK Maxx but mixed it with some milk chocolate to lighten it up a bit)
2 eggs
A miniature bottle of Baileys
A cup of mini marshmallows 



Method:
Typical Brownie method here I think. Mix the wet ingredients first then stir in the dry ingredients & the marshmallows. 
Bake for 20ish minutes @ 175c fan assisted for seriously gooey brownies! (don't worry about brown spots that's just the marshmallows, for the squeamish who prefer less gooey brownies increase baking time) 

Finish: everything looks & tastes better when finished with icing sugar. That's just fact... 

Fun fact! Baileys makes everything Christmassy. And if you can wait for these bad boys to cool down then you're a better person than me! Ooey gooey festive goodness!

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…

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me.

As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes.
I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that.
Until now.
Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have another …

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…
