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 ;)

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

Hot Oil

Not of the olive variety. This morning I tried VO5 hot oil before washing my hair, I picked it up yesterday from my second home - Boots . I was a little dubious at first because it was only £2.18 for 4 tubes of it and I was thinking "hmmmmm, but theres an intensive conditioner over there for 8 quid and it must be better?"  NO, don't got for that over priced leave in conditioner give these little beauties a try first. Pop one out of the packet and stick it in a cup/sink of hot water for 60 seconds to heat it up. While it's got its feet up with a cuppa chilling out wet your hair  thoroughly. Get the tube from the hot water, pop it open and massage it into your hair. I concentrated on the ends of my hair as they are in the worst condition, then worked it through the rest of my hair. The pack comes with strict instructions not to leave it on for more that 1 minute as it's an intensive treatment it can cause irritation of left on any longer. So I was sharpish &

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
