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.

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.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem, being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid! 

So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast, they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actually say that the…

5 Autumn/Winter must have shades from Sleek Lip VIP

For a while Sleek Cosmetics have been the ones to beat for quality products with great pigmentation at great prices. Other brands may hit one or two of these points but in my opinion Sleek consistently hits them all. 
In the past I've been a fan of their Pout Paint and their Matte Me lip laquers but oddly enough I've never dipped in to their actual lipsticks! More fool me. 
I received this set of Sleek Lip VIP semi matte lipsticks at the Sleek Blogger Brunch I attended a few weeks ago (here's where I plug my snapchat again) those of watching my @Faeribex snaps will have seen what a fab day it was.  

First impressions are positive. The colours are bang on trend for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons and there's a nice mix of girly, vampy, vintage and just plain gorgeous.  They apply feeling creamy and set to that semi matte finish slightly paler than when first applied.  For a full days wear I reapplied 3 or 4 times. Mealtimes will definitely do damage but I've yet to fi…
