Next Day Delivery in Belfast courtesy of Next!



Next Day Delivery. To Belfast!! How long have we looked at those promises in the UK mainland and seethed with envy? Well now Next is making them for real and I'm inclined to be a little excited about it. 


So, it's 8am on a Tuesday morning and, while most people are still in bed or rushing off to work, the lovely people at Robinson & Cleaver are feeding us our breakfast and showing us their offerings for Christmas at the launch of the the new Next Belfast Delivery service.


There are gorgeous candles, baubles, snowglobes, festive salt and pepper shakers, cuddley toys, and much more. 


Owls and Deer were the creatures of the day which suits me fine.



I couldn't help thinking of the Wizard of Oz when I saw these cute children's shoes. If I had a child they would definitely be getting them!


Of course we couldn't leave the clothing out. They had everything from winter warmers to your party season glitz and glamour. My favourites were this tartan mini skirt and metalic grey pleated mid length skirt. 


Bumped into the gorgeous Aoife from www.BellaMalone.com trying on this faux fur coat. Should probably point out that it's from the kids range, though she's looking fierce!

The three ginger amigos! Myself, Nic from www.strawberryblondebeauty.com and Rebecca from www.bexberry.com 
Aoife, Myself and Rebecca just before I got my eyebrows waxed by the girls from Jason Shankey Belfast who had a pop Nail & Waxing bar!

I had such a lovely time at this event and really wish the Next Belfast team all the luck for the new service. We definitely need more of this in our wee corner of the world!

5 reasons to visit the new and improved Galgorm Resort and Spa

In Northern Ireland there are maybe a handful of places that come to mind when you talk about true luxury and I am very grateful that the best of the best of those is right on my doorstep. I am talking, of course, about Galgorm Resort & Spa
Coming from Antrim, the Galgorm was the place to be. I've been to several weddings there, I even went to my 6th form formal there - I guess the younguns would call it Prom now, eh? But in all these years of living literally twenty minutes away I have never had the chance to enjoy their infamous spa facilities. All that changed when I was invited to attend the launch of the newly refurbished Spa at Galgorm.  What I didn't realise was that not only would we be getting to SEE the new facilities we were also getting the chance to TRY them! I think you can imagine my face when I realised that I was throughly unprepared, without a swimsuit; but did that stop me? Not a jot!

So as you read through the rest of this article I want you to be keenly…

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…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…
