Calm by Ciara Moore: 5 reasons to get Calm.



When I was offered the chance to visit Calm Massage and Beauty in Randalstown, it came at exactly the right time. I was smack bang in the middle of a series of stressful and invasive hospital appointments and I needed some calm in my life. It sounds trite but it’s true. 

Honestly I’m so glad I went. Ciara herself is so lovely and I loved the atmosphere in the small two room salon, situated on Randalstown Main Street, just half an hour outside Belfast. Here are a few reasons to make the trip. 

Ciara herself
We chatted for quite a while after my appointment was finished and I loved how enthusiastic Ciara was about doing the best for her clients. Whether it was choosing products that she really believed in, supporting other female led businesses around Northern Ireland, training in services that could potentially be life changing - more on that later - She has great hands and a great heart too. 

Neal’s Yard
I’ve never had a facial using Neals Yard before and I came of the salon with a bit of a shopping list as I was hooked on the amazing scents. Using a mix of their ranges, including their Deliciously Ella range, she tailors the facial to your skin leaving it lovely and soft. And as it isn’t a cosmeceutical range there is no down time or recovery. 

The Floopiness. 
I’ve talked about Ciara as a person but let’s talk about those skills too! Apart from the fact that she carried out THE most delicate mascara removal I’ve ever witnessed “to take care of the skin” during the facial; she was also able to knock out the many stress knots I have during the massage. I walked out of the salon with that gorgeous loose feeling I like to call, Floopy. 

She cares for women
As we talked about the business and the services she offered, Ciara began talking about fertility treatments and how she really wanted to help women through what it a very difficult time. Ciara talks about her own experiences on her own blog and why she is passionate about offering the services. 

Calm Triple Treat
Featuring a deluxe facial and a full back, neck, and shoulder massage plus a manicure; priced at 99.00. The third part of the treat takes place in her fabulous custom manicure station which you can see below - as a Nail Technician I have so much station envy. Ciara has generously given me a number of 50.00 vouchers towards the Triple Treat for my readers, so if you would like to experience at more than 50% discount then give me a comment below or a message and I will send you a voucher - there are plenty still available so don't be shy!

Bonus Points! 
I mentioned that I was invited to Calm by the fabulous OhhSocial team, well they have a number of 'Buy One Get One' offers available on the app, I was treated to the Deluxe Duo which included the deluxe facial and a full back, neck, and shoulder massage but with the app you also get a discounted future service and a little bag of goodies to take home! Bliss!

Thankyou to Ciara and Ohh Social for this ohh so delightful treat!

Lunch on the go when you’re Coeliac in Belfast City Centre

It may sound weird but there’s never a better time to be diagnosed with an illness than today. We live in a world where medicine is changing daily and, when it comes to dietary requirements, the options available in restaurants and food retailers is growing beyond anything we ever imagined. That being said it can still be tricky to know where to go if you're a Coeliac in a rush, or trying to keep to a budget. One of the key things I have found since having to switch to a gluten free diet is that lunch times are the hardest. Especially when you’re disorganised like me and have a low key hatred of cheese and ham sambos and tinned soup. Luckily I have recently started working in belfast city centre and it turns out that an hour over lunch is just the perfect amount of time to go exploring to find new lunchy destinations. I’ll miss the likes of Greggs for easiness and cheapness but I’ll be damned if I’m getting stuck with another crap brownie* for lunch.  And so I hit the streets. I hav…

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.
