The importance of Girls Night





It's a Monday night and I'm sitting next to my one of my best friends in the cinema, watching the hilarious Girls Trip movie, and I haven't stopped laughing. Girls Trip is about a bunch of friends - Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish - coming together after a long time apart, reconnecting with each other, reliving the good old days and coming to realisations about their relationships and futures during a wild weekend in New Orleans. All I can think of that this movie sums up my relationship with my girls. I am here to admit that I am one of those annoying people that found my soul mates as a teenager and have been lucky enough to grow and love with the greatest women in the world but it hasn't always been that way. 


We have laughed together, loved together, drank and thrown up together, and we have been absolutely outrageously foul mouthed together - one of my highlights of the film was that the women had filthy chats that we could actually relate to - I love it! We have seen each other through weddings, births, emigrations, good times and bad times. We have grown up, moved away, come back and, for those rare nights that we're all in the same place, partied like we're seventeen again. They just get me.


It is important to have that friendship. Whether you meet in school, university, your local pub bathroom, or the chippy after closing time, it is so important to have that special group of friends who know you and love you for everything you are. 


Of course, after a solid 15-20 years of friendship, priorities change. Those families and responsibilities that we've all collected take up a lot of our time and we don't get to spend as much of it together as we would wish. This is why 'Girls Night' is such an important night. You get the chance to reconnect. You get the chance to reminisce. You get the chance to hang out with your favourite people and just laugh for hours on end. These are moments I hold dear and as I'm sitting in the darkened depths of the Dublin Road Moviehouse Cinema listening to 200+ women laughing their titties off I am suddenly overwhelmed by the fact that I am not alone in appreciating this. We are not alone.


Girls night frickin' rocks!







So thank you to Moviehouse Cinemas and the CoolFM team for hosting us at the screening of Girls Trip, I'll be heading back with the rest of my girls to see it again as I know that they will love it!

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.

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem, being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid! 

So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast, they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actually say that the…

5 Autumn/Winter must have shades from Sleek Lip VIP

For a while Sleek Cosmetics have been the ones to beat for quality products with great pigmentation at great prices. Other brands may hit one or two of these points but in my opinion Sleek consistently hits them all. 
In the past I've been a fan of their Pout Paint and their Matte Me lip laquers but oddly enough I've never dipped in to their actual lipsticks! More fool me. 
I received this set of Sleek Lip VIP semi matte lipsticks at the Sleek Blogger Brunch I attended a few weeks ago (here's where I plug my snapchat again) those of watching my @Faeribex snaps will have seen what a fab day it was.  

First impressions are positive. The colours are bang on trend for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons and there's a nice mix of girly, vampy, vintage and just plain gorgeous.  They apply feeling creamy and set to that semi matte finish slightly paler than when first applied.  For a full days wear I reapplied 3 or 4 times. Mealtimes will definitely do damage but I've yet to fi…
