House of Fraser AW14 Press Preview


I do love the start of a new season and my chance to nosy through House Of Fraser Belfast's new offerings featuring brands such as Biba, Linea, Pied-a-Terre, Mary Portas, Untold, Vince Camuto & Label Lab. With the clothes featured here due in store in the next 6 week it really gives you a chance to plan your wish list!
As always I love a good print. You may not always be a fan of every print but there's definitely a print for everyone and they add a bit of diversity to otherwise boring recurring trends.
I'm a texture obsessive so beads, lace, pleats just please me.
Speaking of texture. Not only is this Biba blazer shining amongst the art deco/metallic print trends, it's also quilted! Apparently quilted pieces are going to be quite popular so keep an eye out. 
Statement necklines, 70s glam prints, chain mail effect & peekaboo hens are a healthy sign that Christmas party season is nearing.

I may not be able to wear a dropped hem myself but you can pretend it's not pretty. And the Gatsby effect proves to be long lasting.
New Danish jewellery brand Dyrberg/Kern stand out in the accessory department. Drooling.
And of course a Benefit are once again on to a winner with their new Christmas sets. At just over £30 for 6x 5g powders (a solo is 8g for only a few pounds less) I need this blush/bronze set. I definitely need it!
My mug because I really love my fringe right now. And why not?!

Thank you to Mark and the team for the evening, it was wonderful as always!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…

Happy Faeriwood Birthday Giveaway!

This week marks the 3rd anniversary of our re-launch as Faeriwood.com from our old life as Bex's Fashion Tips. It seems like an absolute lifetime since we made the switch and so much has changed since then in both Michelle and my lives. 
To mark the occasion I thought I'd celebrate with a little giveaway with some of my favourite brands and products I have reviewed on the blog or featured on social media. 
So what are the prizes?! Well I went a bit mad.
