"You can never over moisturise" Wise words from the folks at Gordon's &La Roche-Posay



The other week I was invited by the lovely folk at Gordon's Chemist to their launch of La Roche-Posay in Northern Ireland.
For skincare fiends La Roche-Posay is a bit of a cult brand only made better by their affordable price point but I have to admit if never tried them before.
After a talk from a dermatologist who emphasised the importance of protecting your skin in every way, not just moisturising but sun protection at all times, we were able to have a nosey at some of the products and take a few home to sample!
I tell you this not as some sort of boast but just to let you know that, whilst I'm still in the "testing out" phase, I am so far extremely happy! The Lipikaur Baulm is fabulous and has now made it into both my desk at work and my beside table (high praise indeed)

I'm planning on picking up some of their Kerium Dry Scalp shampoo because that is my problem area right now and T-Gel just isn't cutting it! I think this coupled with the Baulm could result in something that has not happened in a very long time... A completely itch & flake free Bex. 

Oh how I've got high hopes for this shampoo! Stay tuned to find out if it works!

Wish me luck!

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…

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…
