Belated Birthdayness (photo heavy)

So it was my birthday the other week & I'm not gonna lie it was fairly low key (for me). I'm noticing that happening a lot more with each passing year. But here's a few pictures from my week as I had a really good time!
 The monday night thrown together last minute look. This was about the 4th lipstick I tried on.
My housemate & I getting very drunk & taking pictures near horribly dressed women... 

 Tofu & Prawn noodles with duck Gyoza... heaven.
 My bessie Gayle & I went for lunch to Wagamamas & she let me decorate her nails with my new Barry Ms!



 How cute is this wee canvas?!
 I kinda rock at this... no idea what the rules are though
 Lovely surprise early Glossybox  arriving on my birthday!
 I didn't get a cake. But my friend Bex (other Bex lol) who was born exactly 3 days later than me invited me over for dinner & let have a yummy slice of hers! 
 Two of the more obscure presents I got. I love Astroboy so the book really excites me!
We went out again on the Saturday & oddly I have no proof I was actually there! But this is my favourite photo from the night apart from the Blair Witch...
Creepy Drunk Person. We loved Her.

So that was my week! Thanks for reading.

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

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

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano
