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 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…

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…
