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!

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems. This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take. And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

  The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company ; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem , being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid!  So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast , they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actua

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
