Playing Fashionista at Belfast Fashion Week



Thursday was the opening night of Belfast Fashion Week and it was kicked off in style by George at Asda. That's right. Asda!

I usually only get to 1 show during fashion week and often spend the whole time thinking "yeah it looks good but I could never fit/afford it!" I did not have that problem tonight given that none of them exceed £15 and I actually plan to seek out a few of the items you see below.
On a more serious note I was once again disappointed to see that BFW haven't embraced the plus size model trend or even the normal sized trend! The girls were, at times, drowned in clothes that are obviously not tailored for the waif-like bodies seen on the catwalk. I kind of wanted to offer up the free cake in my goodie bag to try and fill them out a bit! A sacrifice worth making if you ask me.

But I still enjoyed myself and for once I actually left the show feeling inspired to go shopping. Well done to the guys at George at Asda. And thank you very to Cathy Martin PR for inviting us down. Can't wait until September!

  1. Love it! You guys had WAY better seats than us. Your photos are fantastic. I agree about the models. Obviously the smallest size was an 8 in Asda so some of the dresses in particular were a bit loose. I'd have loved to have seen some older models too....I felt every bit of my 40 years there! haha! Hope to see you again soon Bex, Avril x

    1. I'm so glad we moved from where they originally had us! Way better seats and it helped that most of the models posed in front of us haha! It would've been nice to see some normal bodies & you're right older faces too. I think it would have the made the clothes even more appealing!

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

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

Hot Oil

Not of the olive variety. This morning I tried VO5 hot oil before washing my hair, I picked it up yesterday from my second home - Boots . I was a little dubious at first because it was only £2.18 for 4 tubes of it and I was thinking "hmmmmm, but theres an intensive conditioner over there for 8 quid and it must be better?"  NO, don't got for that over priced leave in conditioner give these little beauties a try first. Pop one out of the packet and stick it in a cup/sink of hot water for 60 seconds to heat it up. While it's got its feet up with a cuppa chilling out wet your hair  thoroughly. Get the tube from the hot water, pop it open and massage it into your hair. I concentrated on the ends of my hair as they are in the worst condition, then worked it through the rest of my hair. The pack comes with strict instructions not to leave it on for more that 1 minute as it's an intensive treatment it can cause irritation of left on any longer. So I was sharpish &
