A rare pampering session and a wedding road trip

This week I did something I've never done before. I got my hair and makeup done for a night out (a wedding party), and it was a proper treat! I didn't even put that much effort in for my school formal, although there's a reason those photos have been banned for life!

I quite enjoyed getting pampered even though it's an oddly self indulgent experience. Luckily my hairdresser (Sharon from Stafford Hair) and MUA (Rebecca Bryson) are also my friends so it's just as much of a catchup and a gossip as it is a beauty session. 

The results as captured by Rebecca (go see her at Bexberry.co.uk) are fab!


And sure wasn't I being the selfie queen on the 2 hour trip to Donegal, just because I felt fab!



All ready to go and still holding up!
Cardigan and A-line Mesh Panel Skirt from Tesco both £3 in the sales, T-shirt from Primark and Shoes from Newlook. 

And lasted well through the night (even after a few vodka blackcurrents)

Awk you have to be good yourself sometimes don't you? Maybe next time I'll up my pamper game with my first ever facial or a massage! Stay tuned to find out!

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

Etsy favourites: GrandmaThunderPants

I love shopping on Etsy and I'm absolutely in love with this Panda necklace I bought as a gift for my best friend. It's from a seller based in Florida called GrandmaThunderPants and oh my her store is amazing! So is her price point to be honest. I had to share it. It's the little extra touches I love when shopping on Etsy such as the foam confetti that came with the necklace. Too cute! (Or should that be Kawaii?) Don't you wish you were a zombie now? I kinda do. Find her as GrandmaThunderPants on Instagram or here on Etsy to see more. Grandmathunderpants Etsy

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan
