A little catchup.

Hola Lovlies!! 

It's been a while hasn't it? With Michelle embarking on her big move to the city of Man (Or Manchester as normal people call it) & me pretty much hibernating due to a lot of excess in London (yes I know I'm still going on about it!) plus some other top secret exciting things coming up in September, there's not been a lot going on.  

But now I'm breaking out of my wallow phase & seeking a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). This may or may not be helped by the fact that I was given 2 free lobsters & some crab today in work. Cut to me play Barefoot Contessa and whipping up some Lobster Pot Pie! I even made the pastry myself. Mucho self satisfaction going on. 
[Edit] 
My Instagram of the finished article. It was scrummy!
Prizes for those who get the reference ;)

In my hibernation I have also rediscovered my love doing my nails & below you can see my 2 latest nail art creations. I've even vined the mix & match so you can see each stage in progress!

I've got lots of ideas & my "Nail Inspo" is filling up with lots of pretty designs I want to recreate so hopefully they'll be good enough to show off!

Minions!! I haven't named them all yet so suggestions welcome. 

Mix & Match inspired by Sophy Robson & WAH nails!

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

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano
