Monday Mani Week 3... And 4!

Hey lovelies!! So I'm catching up on myself tonight as the last 2 week have been a touch crazy.

I've come to dread the January/February crossover as it means 2 things. I have to move house and I always get sick. Those who were here last year will remember I was ill, moved house AND went to IMATS all in one week! Mental.

Thankfully IMATS isn't till June this year so we don't have that again but I was struck by the dreaded Norovirus last week & this week is the big move.

Thats my excuse for not posting this on time and I'm sticking to it ;)

Moving on!

Week 3 itself was yellow and I used Ciaté with decal stickers. The star sign is Aquarius as the 23rd of Jan was the rise of Aquarius. And the swallows are just because swallows are cute. The decals are Nail Tattoos from Topshop and are great for reliving your youth if, like me, you were obsessed with transfer tattoos as a child!

Week 4 was green and I went for the 5 nail ombré fade starting out at a mint green and finishing at a gorgeous forest green.

You see, I may be too busy to upload my posts but I'm never too busy to sit down and paint my nails. Priorities eh?

Are you taking part in the challenge? Tag me @faeribex or Other Bex @bexberrymua on Instagram and let us know!

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!) …
