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!

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

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.
