The other week I was invited by the lovely folk at Gordon's Chemist to their launch of La Roche-Posay in Northern Ireland.
For skincare fiends La Roche-Posay is a bit of a cult brand only made better by their affordable price point but I have to admit if never tried them before.
I'm planning on picking up some of their Kerium Dry Scalp shampoo because that is my problem area right now and T-Gel just isn't cutting it! I think this coupled with the Baulm could result in something that has not happened in a very long time... A completely itch & flake free Bex.
Oh how I've got high hopes for this shampoo! Stay tuned to find out if it works!

House Of Fraser Belfast's new offerings featuring brands such as Biba, Linea, Pied-a-Terre, Mary Portas, Untold, Vince Camuto & Label Lab. With the clothes featured here due in store in the next 6 week it really gives you a chance to plan your wish list!
And of course a Benefit are once again on to a winner with their new Christmas sets. At just over £30 for 6x 5g powders (a solo is 8g for only a few pounds less) I need this blush/bronze set. I definitely need it!
My mug because I really love my fringe right now. And why not?!
Thank you to Mark and the team for the evening, it was wonderful as always!

The time has come again where I have worn my handbag down to its bare bones and need a replacement. I've been putting this off for so long that my current bag (or shall we say former) had gone from having 3 separate straps and a zip to only 1 & half straps and no zip.
So off I trotted to the shops. I'm quite simplistic about my everyday handbag. But I'm also very fussy.
It has to be textured matte black leather... Or faux leather.
It has to be an adjustable across the body bag.
It has to close and feel secure. Safety first, Ladies!
And it absolutely 100% has to be BIG. I can't stand small bags. How do you carry anything in them?
Lucky for me the shops are full of exactly what I need and I went for this zippy number from New Look at £19.99.
It's great, it's big and it holds everything I need it to!
And so I'm good for another year.

This week I did something I've never done before. I got my hair and makeup done for a night out (a wedding party), and it was a proper treat! I didn't even put that much effort in for my school formal, although there's a reason those photos have been banned for life!
I quite enjoyed getting pampered even though it's an oddly self indulgent experience. Luckily my hairdresser (Sharon from Stafford Hair) and MUA (Rebecca Bryson) are also my friends so it's just as much of a catchup and a gossip as it is a beauty session.
The results as captured by Rebecca (go see her at Bexberry.co.uk) are fab!
And sure wasn't I being the selfie queen on the 2 hour trip to Donegal, just because I felt fab!
All ready to go and still holding up!
Cardigan and A-line Mesh Panel Skirt from Tesco both £3 in the sales, T-shirt from Primark and Shoes from Newlook.
And lasted well through the night (even after a few vodka blackcurrents)
Maybe next time I'll up my pamper game with my first ever facial or a massage! Stay tuned to find out!

I've been majorly obsessed by dresses recently, skater dresses especially. My obsession has gotten to the point where I realised recently I have do not own any jeans or skirts anymore.
Cue the need for a new look and, given that I'm off to Egypt in 6 weeks, it needed to be a cheap one. I grabbed this skater skirt in uh... New Look for just £4! The Transformers T-shirt was £8 in Tesco and, as with any round neck tee I own, I cut the neck off to give comfort and make it a bit more "me".
