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 ;)

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…

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…

Alita: Battle Angel

For all the hype about it's animated lead character, and the clashing of titans that is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel is the teen fantasy movie (potential) franchise you didn't know you were getting and I'm not sure you wanted. 
Alita starts with Christoph Waltz finding her discarded shell in the trash dump of a mysterious floating city that lords over the world on the ground. He then take her back and, with the help of his *mayaswellbemute* assistant, rebuilds her with a teen shaped mech body he just happens to have lying around and gives her the name of his dead daughter. None of this is supposed to be creepy at all. When Alita, Rosa Salazar, starts to realise that she is not just your typical abandoned teendroid but actually a super slick alien android with secret ninja fighting skills she does what any girl would do... she throws herself at, literally, the first boy she meets and takes up roller derby. Oh but she's also a sassy vigilante …
