Selfridges Festival Beauty Box

Aloha! How is everyone today? Not gonna lie I had the best day with some of my besties. We went to our local Hilton in Templepatrick for a Spa day & then wedding dress shopping for my friend who recently got engaged!! Feeling very relaxed & very grown up right now, I'll be honest. 


Bringing me back to my youth is the Selfridges Festival Beauty Box you see pictured above! I picked this up the other week in London and have slowly but surely been making my way through the goodies inside. If I like them enough I may even tell you more about them! (Spoiler alert: I definitely am "in Like" & "Almost Love" with some of these so you will definitely be hearing more!)

For now I'll leave you with a few snaps of the contents. Not pictured in close up are the NPW face wipes & Violent Lips Lip Appliques because... Well they're face wipes & unused lip tattoos. Only so much you can do with that!

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

Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

  A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast.  I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare.  Spoiler alert: I loved them.  The course was three treatments over three months -  slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers schedule   and their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my  first Therapie post  I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love.  It’s im

The one where I get to play as MUA!

Oh it's been a busy couple of weekends for little ole me but it's been a blast! I had the great opportunity of helping out my friend Narelle with her zombie movie! Now we all know I'm used to handling a camera or giving the orders in this kind of thing but this time I was set a different task: Makeup! Let me tell you it's been a long time since I've done anything zombie related (6 years in fact) so I jumped at the chance to muck in and try something different. The twist of the whole thing of course is that it's not just a zombie movie, it's a zombie movie for kids! Starring all of Narelle's students from her drama school.  So me and my 3 fellow MUAs (don't worry I'm not going to declare myself a professional just yet) got stuck in to our cast of 75 for each of the 3 days of production. That's about 60 kids and 15 adults by the way. Every day! Man I'm tired! But it was great craic and below you will see, my kit, some of my work on the adul
