What a Cheek!




One thing I can't help but think when I look at my collection of make up is "I'm pretty sure I've lost a tonne of these" I know for a fact that there are at least two MAC cream blushes missing and a few Benefit boxes too (at one point I had two Thrrrob's because I stocked up when they discontinued it... still mourning btw.) Do I have any idea where they are? Nope. Am I going to miss them? OF COURSE but not really because look at the pretties I still have!

I'm a huge Benefit Blush fan. It's pretty much the only Benefit product I will religiously love. Yes the Mascaras are great and the novelty products are fun but, for me, it's all about the cheeks! Give me a blush, bronze and highlighting product and I will be happy. 

Other favourable mentions are Marks & Spencer's Limited Collection Pink Mix Blusher (a delightfully checkered mix of pinks, purples and corals) an added bonus is that its hypoallergenic so I don't feel bad using it without foundation, The Sleek 'Blush By 3' Trio are a recent addition and they really pack a punch.


So those are the most used of my blushes, have you any recommendations of your favourites?

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…
