Winning... not

I'm in a really bad mood at the minute, today is the dreaded 12th of July and here in Northern Ireland that means Riots, Marching, and the celebration of a slaughter hundreds of years ago by King William of Orange & his army. But that's nothing new, today as I was driving home from work and fighting my way through the parade's the celebrating crowds left glass bottles on the road which burst my tyres & ruined the wheels. To which they cheered. Hiya upset Bex who can't afford to replace her wheels. (See twitter for some serious and explicit rantage) So I'm hoping that writing about something that makes me happy will cheer me up.

Unfortunately I've sat here for ages and I really can't think of anything that's bringing me out of this funk. So I'm going to leave you with a video I found on YouTube last night which made me laugh. It is both really good and hilariously bad at the same time. Its a Zumba workout and is really good but if you're not interested in the workout then check it just for the production value, shoddy camera/editing techniques & the hilariously apathetic students in the background of the workout. My "MediaBex" alter ego cringes at every moment! Hilarious.


PS we have been really quiet recently and I do apologise about that, both Michelle and I have been really busy and really broke so not a lot of spending or new purchases to talk about. But we have got 2 new joint posts planned, one in the next few days [feel free to nag at us to encourage it!] and one towards the end of next week. [prizes if you can guess what the second one is about ;) ]
We've had a lot of new followers recently and its really appreciated! Just bare with us and we'll make hitting that follow button worth your while!

[EDIT]
actually you know what? I do feel better after this. Thank you blogger!

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

No Halloween Costume Needed

It's become an accepted norm that once December 1st comes around the nations will don their snowflake print leggings and their novelty jumpers but so far the other seasons are lacking in their effort. Yes, Halloween is famous as being the single greatest costume day of the year but I need October to step and represent in the seasonal apparel game. 
Thankfully retailers have heard my inner goth cry and have come up with some seriously cute Halloween inspired items. For those who love a slogan tee you have every variation of saying that could possibly be made by rhyming witch with bitch and if you don't say every one of with Emma Roberts' attitude then you need to watch season 3 of American Horror Story immediately!  


Dressing with the seasons is clearly big money but it doesn't have to cost the world. Here are my choices of how to get into the Halloween spirit all under £30. 

Boohoo
Starting with my favourites because I can! I actually bought the first two dresses and I'…

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson







Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
