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.

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

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is
