Just a trim?

So here's the thing. For about 4 or 5 years now I've been determined to cultivate super long, super ginge "Mermaid hair". It's been a running joke amongst friends and is often commented on by Bathroom Strangers. Bless those compliment bearing Bathroom Strangers, the ultimate ego boost.

My hair stylist, the phenomenal Sharon from Paul Stafford, bless her every time I go in has had the challenge of trying to keep it as healthy as possible whilst living up to my demands of cutting only the bare minimum to my damaged ends.

Yeah... Not this time.  



This time I said "go for it" and boy did we! 

A 70s Shag cut with blonde through the back and ends so that when the mood takes me I can put the crazy colours I have stashed through it. Sharon informed me that in Stafford the Shag is known is "The Melter" due to the abstract nature of the layers and the constant need for the stylist to switch up their angles. Having been told for many years how much of a head melter I am myself, I think me and this cut shall be friends for a long while. 



Just a little different. 


This morning I'm still loving it. The social media response has been crazy and makes me think I should get my hair cut more often! 

I'm super grateful to Sharon for my cut and Cheryl for my colour. I can't recommend Stafford Hair enough! I'd say everyone should go there but that would only mean that they'd be too busy for me and all the many friends I have that already go. Check out their Instagram @WeAreStaffordHair and you'll understand just how fab they are. 

In the mean time we shall memorialise the Mermaid hair. Gone but not forgotten. 

RIP

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 …
