Afternoon Tea in Titanic Belfast


Confession time. This week I made my second trip to visit the Titanic Museum in Belfast and it was the second time I didn't make it to the actual exhibit.
Instead I donned a lovely tea dress, went for afternoon tea and gazed upon the beauty that is the replica of those stairs whilst supping a unique blend of (you guessed it) tea exclusive to the museum and nibbling the tastiest bites I've had in a while. 


A rare peek at the unoccupied stairs. They are very much the centre focus of afternoon with everyone taking the time to have their moment pretending they were Jack and Rose (because let's face it that's what the whole day is about!) 



You're definitely well fed with not only the treats on the stands but also platters of sandwiches and then a full slice of the cake of your choice afterwards! I opted for the Red Velvet, of course!



We made full use of the stairs as you can see. It had to be done!

And our gorgeous city giving some great cloud action. I do love a good cloud!


How cute are the left over boxes?!
Fairly standard face for me but with the addition of Chanel universal eyebrow pencil. Just for a little added definition!

And on such a gorgeous day why not show off and have a wee photoshoot by the big sign. Why not, indeed!

Love my girlies! I would thoroughly recommend Titanic as a nice novelty afternoon out. There are many different places offering afternoon tea these days but this one has an obvious uniqueness and totally worth it.

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.

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…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

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.
