Date Yo’ Self!



We’re only days in to February and already the Valentine’s Day hype is upon us. Every post on social media and promotional email pinging in to your inbox is full of romantic getaways, gift ideas for your other half, and over priced set menus; if you’re a commitmentphobe like myself then it can seem like you’re not part of the cool gang. Well do you know what I say to that?

FUCK IT. Date yourself!

Do your nails. 
Get gussied up. 
Shit at applying lashes? Spend an hour practicing! It’s not like there’s someone impatiently waiting and giving you side eye. 
Eat your weight in holiday chocolate - am I the only one who thinks it tastes better because there’s less preservatives? 
Missing your Netflix and chill? How about Netflix and Chinese takeout except probably not because it’s only Wednesday. Let’s not go too crazy! Still… You’re half way through season 4 of Weeds and Nancy’s cataclysmic relationship choices are making you feel much better about single life right now.
Ok, so the chocolate is gone, the TV is asking if you’re still watching and you didn’t get to first base but you’re looking glam, you saved a bundle and if you’re really lucky you might let yourself get to second ;)

Thankyou to Alex Silver PR for the Impress manicure and Kiss Products Lashes -  tune in to @Faeribex Instastories Feb 14th and join in with my pamper evening!

  1. I have an OH but we don't REALLY celebrate V day so we'll probably eat a nicer than normal dinner and then I'll follow along your stories while pampering myself lol

  2. Love it! Was following along your instastories, and just like yourself I spent it with myself, ate all the chocolate, watched some youtube and netflix and did little jobs here and there and had a wonderful night :) Even attempted some nose strip mask things? I don't even know but it seemed like a great idea at the time lol :)

Ciaté Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar Week 1

I know you've already seen Day 1 but here are the rest of week ones goodies!

So far I'm in love with Cupcake Queen, Halo & Caberet. My least favourite is Cutie Pie which despite 3 coats is the sheerest polish I've ever come across!!













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…

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…
