Trend spotting with Quiz Fairhill Ballymena

 


If you read my post on the discounts involved in Ballymena Means Fashion you'll know that Saturday 8th April is going to be an epic day of shopping and treats for everyone. As part of my coverage of the event I was invited down to Fairhill Shopping Centre in Ballymena (hi) to visit Quiz and see the latest trends that will displayed in tomorrow's fashion show. 

I met the lovely Nikita, who I'd like to thank Up-front for hosting me and showing me round the store, she picked out that pinks, ruffles and embroidered denim are the big trends that they are stocking. 



 

 


Please excuse the changing room lighting but how cute are these jeans?!? I remember rocking a very similar pair a cool *cough*twenty*cough* years ago in the late nineties and I thought I was the bee's knees. Guess what? I still do!

 

 

I really love this cinched top with necklace detail in both the white and the pink but I decided that the pink was my favourite. Partly because it was the totally on trend colour but also it was slightly less sheer. A decent bra will complete the look (seriously Bex, who goes shopping without their favourite bra?!) 

I was very greatful that They let me keep my favourite outfit to show off for you folks. Sadly I couldn't get the pink leather jacket but I may just have to go back for it... just to complete the ensemble!

Winter Skin Survival For Dry and Dehydrated Skin

Every now and again I branch out from my tried and tested favourites in search of something new for my skin.  I don’t mind admitting that I’ve been doing this for a lot of years now, I’ve mostly found what works for my skin and I’ve settled on a routine that works for my budget and my schedule - cheap and quick if you’re wondering. But that doesn’t mean that I will end the search for new products. I’m just very careful how I do it. I live by samples and testers, I opt for the occasional beauty box or calendar, and I love love love finding miniatures and gift sets on offer after the holidays - I tend to stock up on products around this time and drag them out through the next year.



Which leads to my recent purchase of the Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar. It’s my 4th year in a row buying this calendar and I very much doubt I’ll miss it next year. Some of my absolute favourite products have come out of these calendars, the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream being one and my …

Belfast Fashion Week House Of Fraser Press Preview

Michelle & I were very excited to get an invite to the Belfast House Of Fraser Spring/Summer Press Preview recently. Now unfortunately it was a bit far for Michelle to commute (this time!) but I, luckily, had the day off work and went to have a nosy along with a few other FABB bloggers!
This year marks the first year that they have invited bloggers to a press showing and I'm so glad they did. I got to meet Grainne Maher of Pluck & Devour fame and catch up with Mark & Caoimhe from Benefit Ireland who were lovely as always!
My favourite items are pictured below as well as the new Benefit Fine One One which is a nifty bit of kit I can't wait to properly try out!

Favourite Accessories:
Sophie Hume Mini Satchel £330 (a girl can dream right?)
Neon yellow Pied A Terre bag £159
Biba Clutch £169
Pluck & Devour Pegasus Necklaces from £29.99

Stand out clothing lines were Linea (I love the beaded collar on this shirt), Biba (their formal wear makes me wish I had a ball to…

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…
