Ballin'

So here's a thing, this weekend I'm attending a Ball! Isn't that fancy? If I'm being honest I've been reluctant to write about the Charity Ball in aid of my cousin who passed away last year. It felt strange but now it doesn't. We are fundraising for Bone Cancer Research Trust who were amazing to her and her family &, given that there is currently zero non surgical treatments available for Bone Cancer, are worthy recipients. 

For months now Michelle and I have been swapping messages about what to wear. The dress, the shoes, the hair, it's all been on the go. She has a gorgeous gown off the internet & I finally bought the Eliza J dress I've been lusting after from House of Fraser, I even bought a corset! 


The only thing I've been worrying about during the whole process is hair, so many choices! Unable to get to my usual hairdressers in time & not having the confidence to rock out with an updo by someone else, I was stuck.



I then settled on the above Kelly Osbourne look. Elegant & easily achievable at home, I even looked into dying my hair lilac! And then I go and I get my hair chopped off a week before the event!


Cue frantic searches through Pinterest for "fancy short hair" options and you can see my new choices here. 


I actually prefer these looks don't you?

I can't wait for Saturday. As fun as the planning is, what I'm looking forward to most is being with my family. They really are the most important thing in life. 

Closely followed by hair and nails. Obviously!

Follow @Faeribex on Pinterest & stayed tuned to see how Saturday went. 
If you'd like to please check out Bone Cancer Research @BRCT on Twitter for details on how to donate directly to them.  Every little helps, as they say.

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
