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!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan

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 groun
