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!

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Creamy Delights and Disapointing Discoveries

It's been almost a year since I was privileged to spend the afternoon in Pamela Smyth's makeup studio and in that time not only has she won, yet more, awards for her work but I have taken her words to heart. One of the pieces of advice she gave us was to match product types when trying to achieve a natural look. Cream on cream. Powder on powder.

It's so simple when you think about it. Sticking with similar product types reduces the risk of your make up caking and allows for a more perfect blend, all allowing for that perfect 'no makeup' makeup.

With my skin leaning towards the drier side, although recently I have notice that changing as age and diet changes kick in, I stick to using cream products but I've struggled to find the perfect shades of cream blush. Yes, there are plenty of premium cream blushes out there, but not that many high street options. I do have an excellent palette from Make Up Revolution, but none of the shades give me the 'barely there&…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
