A nail lovers gift idea from me featuring E.L.F

I have a problem. I simply do not have enough nail polish....

Ok that's a blatant lie but I do have very few Jewel tones in my collection and this set of 14 polishes for £15 from E.L.F came at the perfect time. 

At time of purchase they were doing a special offer on orders over £30 so for £20 I got this and some others lovelies I can't talk about (santa's secret!) 

Below I have swatched each polish with only 1 coat and the quality is amazing considering I got them for less than a £1 each! Every colour was fast drying, opaque in 1 coat and the glitters were jam packed and smooth to the touch so no need for top coat
L-R: Desert Haze | Glamour Girl | Gold Star (layered over Desert Haze)
L-R: Blushing Beauty | Taupe Of The World (now you know what Taupe is)| Smoky Brown 
L-R: Misty Haze (this will replace my much used Barry M Grey)| Dazzle Diva | Chic Confetti 
L-R: Red-y or Not | Cherry Bomb | Violet Velvet
L-R: Green Machine (this is the perfect green!) | Sea Escape

They're not massively long lasting without the aid of a top but given the price that's not a huge issue.

Mucho impressed!

Bex’s Mid Year Beauty Favourites 2018

This year I have been quietly chugging away in the back ground testing out some new - to me - products (or versions of) and I’ve decided it’s time to share. I guess I’ve been inspired by the multiple people this week who told me off for making them need to buy pretty things. So here are some pretty things for you that you may just want to buy even if you don’t need them! Ha!


I’ve been obsessing over Estèe Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye for months and I just can’t get enough of it’s balmy texture. Someone recently asked on InstastoryQuestions - mouthful - what my night time routine is and while most of the products change from night to night, this fella is consistent. 
A trio of delights here that took me by surprise. I recently declared that I had found my perfect mascara, but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying new ones. Wet’n’Wild Lash Renegade* really surprised me with its impact and, whilst the spool isn’t my all time favourite, I am really digging it.  Another Wet’n’Wild favou…

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
