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 ;)

Date Yo’ Self!

We’re only days in to February and already the Valentine’s Day hype is upon us. Every post on social media and promotional email pinging in to your inbox is full of romantic getaways, gift ideas for your other half, and over priced set menus; if you’re a commitmentphobe like myself then it can seem like you’re not part of the cool gang. Well do you know what I say to that? FUCK IT. Date yourself! Do your nails.  Get gussied up.  Shit at applying lashes? Spend an hour practicing! It’s not like there’s someone impatiently waiting and giving you side eye.  Eat your weight in holiday chocolate - am I the only one who thinks it tastes better because there’s less preservatives?  Missing your Netflix and chill? How about Netflix and Chinese takeout except probably not because it’s only Wednesday. Let’s not go too crazy! Still… You’re half way through season 4 of Weeds and Nancy’s cataclysmic relationship choices are making you feel much better about single life right now. Ok, so the chocolate is go…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Beating the blues with #GroundDoesMondays

Monday’s used to be filled with sambucca shots and double vodbulls, now I’m partial to a chai tea latte or a caramel laiden hit caffeine. I’ve really been trying to embrace cafe culture recently. My friends will tell you that I’m always looking for an excuse to meet up for the chats over a cuppa. I am under no illusion that this is a substitute for my drinking days!
One of my favourite places to go for coffee is Ground Espresso and I’m slowly making my way through their ever expanding range of stores; the most recent of which is the new laganbank store in Lisburn where I popped in to chase away the Monday blues with my Mum.  Ground is the only place you’ll find me comfortable enough to drink a simple filter coffee. TheirLa montaña Columbian filter from Berlin, with its jammy blackcurrent notes through a chemex filter - removing all harshness from the coffee - actually suffers when you add milk and it’s only through my lessons with Ground that I can even begin to understand this. I drank…
