If you follow me on social media you will have noticed a huge upturn in activity due to my illness and spending a lot of time on bed rest at home. I try to keep each network different rather than spamming every account with the same things because I am bored. I am supremely bored. I'm even bored of watching television which is unheard of! But I am using my time to be a little productive. One of the things I am happy about is the opportunity to focus on this blog a bit more without my two other pesky jobs getting in the way of being in bed. I'm joking... Kinda.
So that was a good week. This week I will be playing about with my new purchases, delving in to deep review mode, doing what I can to keep my mind busy, and hopefully I'll be well enough to get out again for a non-alcoholic Paddy's Day. If you want to keep up with my goings on then follow the Faeriwood Facebook and add me on Snapchat/Instagram/Twitter to keep up to date! @Faeribex.
Thankfully I can now get about three or four good hours of activity rather than just one or two. This week I found out that I am being prescribed vitamin B12 injections starting next week; those will hopefully give me a further boost but in the meantime I am being very selective with how I use those limited bursts of energy.
This week (actually Last week) I went out three times! I never thought I'd be excited that going out three times would be an achievement but it is! I loaded up on my fortijuice (sort of like prescription energy/high calorie drinks) and off I went.
Yo!Sushi 'This Is Tokyo' Menu Launch
I'm obsessed with Japanese culture and sushi, so when I got the invite to go down to Yo and try out their new menu I had agreed before I even contemplated that my dietary restrictions might not allow it. However I have been doing major IBD research and was confident that I could avoid what I wasn't allowed. I needn't have worried because rice and fish are staples and bar a few things that I couldn't touch, we had a lovely meal. I feel like I say this a lot but thank you to Sarah for accompanying me and to Laura from Yo!Sushi Belfast for hosting us! A full review is coming on Friday!
Girl Time @ Belfast Fashion Week and The Irish Beauty ShowMy other two outings this week were more social than review. I was gifted a ticket to the Belfast Fashion Week Awards for my previous work with them so once again I was accompanied (aka taxi'd) by Sarah and we were also joined by our friend Leah. We had a great night and some good craic. Sadly none of my friends that were nominated won but it was still worth the effort of going for this amazing wall of flowers that we had to bury ourselves in and pull sultry poses. Yes, Sarah... Sultry.
F&F at Tesco | felt stilettos from Primark | bag from Kenneth Cole | All size 16 which is very a pleasing benefit to being unwell.
Last but not least I got a tiny teeny bit of shopping done with the lovely Alison from Passions & Preening at the Irish Beauty Show. Her lovely hubby drove us down and we had great fun showing him the manic craziness that is a beauty trade show. I picked up a few nail supplies for work and a few beauty bits for myself. Why not eh? Thanks again to Alison and Scott for a lovely day. Sorry I slept through most of the non-shopping element, it was exhausting!
