Beauty Box Loves

So here it is as promised some of my favourite goodies from both my Glossybox & Boudoir Prive/Joliebox

Permanently in my makeup bag are Rose & Co Rose Petal Salve (this is an amazing salve which clears up dry lips ridiculously fast), New CID I-gloss in Babydoll (Always a conversation starter when I whip this badboy out because it lights up! Plus it has just the right consistency for my liking), Joliebox Concealer Brush (My go to concealer brush, its a bitch to clean because its quite firm and I worry about ruining it but other than that I love it!)

I would never have bought these items themselves but have always wanted to try each brand so obviously I was happy when I received them.

These guys have made it into my regular bathing/hair routine. I will most certainly be repurchasing all of them!

Well we all knew I would love receiving Nail Polish didn't we? In fact I was always a bit gutted that there wasn't a polish in every box! Nail Polish Beauty boxes... A new concept maybe?   

Not pictured because they bit the dust a long time ago but have made a lasting impression are:

Murad: Time Release Blemish Cleanser
Dead Sea Spa Magik Salt Brush
Korres Quince Body Butter
Green People Fruitful Nights (seriously wish this was cheaper so I could buy it full size)
HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette (ok I do need to use this so I saved it and gave it to Michelle on her recent visit. It is amazing on her!)
Robert Piquet Calypso perfume
Stila Smudge Proof Eyeliner
Monu Recovery Balm (Amazing as a makeup primer I definitely have noticed a decline in my skin since this ran out recently)
Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment

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

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi

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 f
