House Of Fraser A/W press launch!

This week I attended the House of Fraser  A/W launch as a little pre-Fashion Week treat. It seems like only weeks since we last had Fashion Week on the horizon and, with it, the launch of the Spring/Summer season. Well summer is well and truly over and we move on to my favourite fashion seasons. Autumn/Winter. 

Now I'm never one to dress weather appropriate. I don't like massively bulky jumpers in the winter and I never go without some form of sleeve in summer no matter how warm I am! It's a comfort thing. So autumn is kind of my favourite time to shop. It's not too cold that we are massivly covered in layers and we have firmly said goodbye micro shorts (or at least we should have) in the shops.

Ok so enough blathering on its time to show you some of the goodies I spotted after enjoying breakfast & gossip with my FABB girlies Nic (Strawberry Blonde Beauty) & Gemma-Louise (That Belfast Girl)

This ring from Filli Folli was simple but still Blingy enough to make an impact. I have a Black & Bling themed wedding coming up in the future & I'm serious tempted to buy this as an accent to my dress!

I fell in love with Kilian Kerner last season when he launched in the Belfast store. The most gorgeously quirky prints cut beautifully to flatter the figure. Ok so thats a lot of adverbs but you get my point. They have also relaunched the line in a lower, more affordable, price bracket but still have kept the same quality so that can only be a good thing for eagle eyed shoppers!

Nature prints popped up quite a bit during my browsing. These autumnal scenes are quite beautiful and something really different from the usual spring florals you associate with nature prints. 

Another favourite lust of my are Biba and they are sticking to their Art Deco roots with, of course, a 1920s glamour themed collection. Yes it screams Gatsby and yes it makes me wish I was a flapper girl living the high life. One can dream!

More blingy inspiration for potential christmas do's! 

Handbag love/lust! Again I'm loving Biba with their orange clutch and could do a lot of damage with DKNY's Saffiano Large Black Tote. Anyone got a spare £265? Anyone? Bueller?

Lashes were loving their Laser Cutouts with full dresses and peplums made from the leather look PU fabric. I, however, was loving the minimalist approach on the collar of this cute shirt.  

I'll leave you with a glimpse of my look for the day and a wee confession after all this designer talk... New Look head to toe. ;)

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

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi

No Halloween Costume Needed

It's become an accepted norm that once December 1st comes around the nations will don their snowflake print leggings and their novelty jumpers but so far the other seasons are lacking in their effort. Yes, Halloween is famous as being the single greatest costume day of the year but I need October to step and represent in the seasonal apparel game.  Thankfully retailers have heard my inner goth cry and have come up with some seriously cute Halloween inspired items. For those who love a slogan tee you have every variation of saying that could possibly be made by rhyming witch with bitch and if you don't say every one of with Emma Roberts' attitude then you need to watch season 3 of American Horror Story immediately!   Dressing with the seasons is clearly big money but it doesn't have to cost the world. Here are my choices of how to get into the Halloween spirit all under £30.  Boohoo Starting with my favourites because I can! I actually bought the f
