Festive Gift Ideas with Emjoi Micro Nail (Review included)

It's almost that time of year again and unless you're the most prepared person in the world you're probably just about thinking about presents for your friends & loved ones. Well I have a treat for you. 



The Emjoi Micro-Nail Electric Nail Polisher  promises a 2 week manicure in just a few seconds and it's really not far off the mark! 


The set up is simple. You get 4 rollers, a buffer and a shiner (2 of each) and you easily pop them on and off for use. Then after prepping your nails thoroughly you switch it on, glide the rollers across the nail and you're done. Sounds simple but in practice it takes a bit of getting used to. I tested it with my mum and we both found it took a few attempts to get used to the speed of the rollers without it shooting across the nail. But once we got the hang of it we found it as quick as advertised. 
Now, you should never use an abrasive on your nail for more than a few seconds (or else you risk damaging the layers of the nail) so I'd recommend practice with the smooth roller to get your technique sorted as you can use that as much as you like. 


Here's the before and below you can see a few snaps of my mum using the buffer.



We found anchoring the finger with our thumbs gave more control when using the roller. 



And the results are plain to see. The nails are lovely and shiny! 

This is exactly the kind of item I'd love to find as a wee stocking filler. Is it going to replace my 4-way buffer permanently? Probably not. It's gadgety, fun and effective so It's definitely a winner in my book!

Available at Gordon's Chemists and currently on offer at £29.95.

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson





Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
