Getting crafty with KARMA jewellery


This week I was invited to take part in a Jewellery making workshop in The Black Box by the folks at KARMA Jewellery

If you haven't heard of KARMA they are a Belfast based company who's ethos of uplifting and inspiring the recipients of their product also comes with the benefits of knowing you are helping the community when you make your purchase. 10% of all their sales goes to helping out local charities, all of which is detailed on their website. So when you make a purchase it's definitely good for your karma... 

Ok punning aside its a pretty great idea, it's been a few years since I went through my jewellery making phase so I jumped at the chance to join in and learn some new techniques. 








We started out with a bit of a "get to know you" session where we each recieved personalised gifts. Massively generous given that they were about to let us loose among their huge bead collection. After a quick demonstration on how to assemble the pieces we got stuck in. I don't think I've ever seen a room of Bloggers so still as we all sat in a zen-like concentration. It's definitely a peaceful hobby, until you spill your beads! Thankfully we had no major spills.







After we finished our own bangles the girls closed them off with their signature "Made In Belfast" charms and we all compared our diverse creations. 

This was such a lovely evening from KARMA and I really hope they start offering sessions like this to the public (it's a winning idea and the perfect girly hangout!) until then, however, you satiate your need at your nearest Argento store or online. Prices range from £15 to approx £50 for a themed stack and the choices are endless!

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.
