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.

5 or more Northern Irish foods you need to seek out now!

With tourism on the rise, Northern Ireland is fast becoming known for its foodie culture; and rightfully so because we have some of the best produce in the world! And that’s not just fluffy talk, it’s hard fact. If you go on holiday in Europe the likelihood is that you’ll be eating Northern Irish seafood, as close to 80% of our catch is exported. Take a walk around the luxurious halls of London’s fortnum & masons and you can buy Northern Irish beef. We produce mutton and Rose Veal but we send more across the water than we sell locally. And it’s not just meat and fish. This weekend I was invited down to see the Food NIpavillion at the Balmoral Show, Food NI specialise in showcasing food grown and produced exclusively in Northern Ireland. There is all sorts of amazing produce coming out of NI and after tasting some amazing goodies at this years Balmoral Show (my first year going but hopefully not my last!) I just had to share my favourite picks.

Stocking Up On Old Favourites - Benefit Cosmetics

There is a temptation, when trying to summarise a period of time, to use all matter of banalities. "Oh, what a few weeks it has been" I find myself thinking, and indeed it has been a crazy few weeks. Its been a crazy few months! I have gone from being settled in a, fairly comfortable, long term job to switching careers in to a completely different industry on a temporary contract with no security, no back up, and no real idea of what I would do if it all went tits up. I was balancing this by taking on extra work with the blog, attending an uptake in hospital appointments and undergoing extra, ongoing, tests; becoming a god mum for the second time, becoming a kitty re-homer, and a tonne of other things which I can't even put in to words. 
And then right at the end I found out that I was being made permanent; my risk had paid off. My new employers were ecstatically happy with how I was settling in and the stars aligned when a position opened up and I could cross over to sec…

Faeriwood Craft Corner ft Sarah Jayne Chalk Paints

Every now and again I get the craft bug and start looking through my flat to find things to paint, stitch, or just make pretty. Of course in a one bed flat with a very curious cat that is easier said than done so when I received these chalk paints from Sarah-Jayne Chalk Paints I had to look smaller than I would have liked. I picked up this jewellery box as part of a £1 lucky dip box at an auction waaaaaaay back when I first moved in. I basically kitted out my whole flat for twenty quid (see my auction adventure here). Ever since it has been sat on the dresser I picked up at the same auction waiting to be painted. 

The time has come. 
Step 1: Sand!
Now I know you don’t need to sand with most chalk paints and the Sarah-Jayne Chalk Paints are no exception to this; however the drawers on this box were already super tight and I knew I needed to sand them down or else the added layers of paint and wax would just weld them closed permanently. I sanded the entire thing by hand and it took foreve…
