Bex does Belsonic featuring Urban Outfitters & NYC


Last night was a rare chance to embrace my rock side in the form of  Nine Inch Nails at Belsonic.

  
I rarely post my outfits but I recently bought this dress in the Urban Outfitters sale for £10! A bargain & I love it. Plus it was light enough and comfy enough to go under my raincoat. We may be the kingdom of the grey in Northern Ireland but we do vary it with clammy heat on the odd occasion. 

Make up wise I kept it pretty simple opting for dramatic lips with NYC Ultra Last Lipwear in Blue Rose.

Northern Irish Band And So I Watch You From Afar (ASIWYFA) as main support. Have been following these guys since 2008 when I worked filming gigs around Belfast. It's always great to see them doing so well. I get so mesmerised every time I see them I didn't even realise it was raining until I was literally soaked! Set Guitars To Kill will always be my favourite song of their their set.

The main act themselves presented a really intriguing stage show with 5 light screens constantly moving and changing the layout of the stage to suit what was happening musically.

I'm not a massive NIN mega buff but I've always liked their mix of industrial rock & electronica. Highlights of the set was the ethereal Hurt, MY favourite song Closer, and the crowd pleasing Piggy.

End of the night and I've held up pretty well. How is it I can never get my hair to curl so perfectly when I try?

Well that was a bit different wasn't it?! I'll leave you with a video of ASIWYFA performing my favourite song. I may have helped with it, back in the day ;)

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…
