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!

A very crafty day out: Annie Sloan workshops at The Craft Loft

In Newcastle, Co. Down, hidden above Annetts Childrenswear is a hidden gem. The Craft Loft is the love child of Phyllis Annett who after years of helping to run the successful childrens clothing shop with her husband - his family's business for several generations - was looking for a new creative outlet; something that would bring business and life to the upstairs of their gorgeous converted townhouse. 
And so The Craft Loft was born.
Myself and a few other Northern Irish bloggers were invited down to sample one of the various workshops offered by Phyllis and her family. Whether you want to paint a piece, learn how to decoupage, upholster furniture, or build your own lamps, Phyllis and her family have a number of wonderful classes for you to take all based around the use of the famous Annie Sloan chalk paints and fabrics. I opted for the Paint A Piece class because I wanted to start with the basics of chalk paint and furniture decoration but also because my flat is tiny and packed t…

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…

A hearty autumn meal and BBC Good Food Show Competition

As October draws to a close the clocks have turned back and the dark nights have settled in. Carved pumpkins are glowing on doorsteps and, as I walk home from work, the air outside smells of burning wood fires and home baked goodies; as if all of Belfast collectively decided that tonight was going to be as cosy as possible. I love this time of year. 

In the aftermath of Halloween and the looming onslaught of pre-Christmas sales it’s easy to get a bit fed up of November. I mean what is there to do? And with no such celebration as America's Thanksgiving over here what is there to eat?!? Well thankfully there is still a foodie event to keep us going through what could have been an utterly boring culinary month...
The BBC Good Food Show returns to the Belfast Waterfront Hall this November (10th – 12th) and thanks to lovely folks at MCE we have an exciting opportunity which means that you could be seeing your favourite TV chefs such as Nadiya Hussain (Friday) and The Hairy Bikers (Sunday…
