Getting crafty with KARMA jewellery

This week I was invited to take part in a Jewellery making workshop in The Black Box by the folks at KARMA Jewellery

If you haven't heard of KARMA they are a Belfast based company who's ethos of uplifting and inspiring the recipients of their product also comes with the benefits of knowing you are helping the community when you make your purchase. 10% of all their sales goes to helping out local charities, all of which is detailed on their website. So when you make a purchase it's definitely good for your karma... 

Ok punning aside its a pretty great idea, it's been a few years since I went through my jewellery making phase so I jumped at the chance to join in and learn some new techniques. 

We started out with a bit of a "get to know you" session where we each recieved personalised gifts. Massively generous given that they were about to let us loose among their huge bead collection. After a quick demonstration on how to assemble the pieces we got stuck in. I don't think I've ever seen a room of Bloggers so still as we all sat in a zen-like concentration. It's definitely a peaceful hobby, until you spill your beads! Thankfully we had no major spills.

After we finished our own bangles the girls closed them off with their signature "Made In Belfast" charms and we all compared our diverse creations. 

This was such a lovely evening from KARMA and I really hope they start offering sessions like this to the public (it's a winning idea and the perfect girly hangout!) until then, however, you satiate your need at your nearest Argento store or online. Prices range from £15 to approx £50 for a themed stack and the choices are endless! 


  1. I found that site very usefull and this survey is very cirious, I ' ve never seen a blog that demand a survey for this actions, very curious...

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 ground up lea…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69

An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Therapie Clinic Belfast: An Introduction and an update

It probably sounds a bit weird that I’ll be doing both introduction and update in one post but this is how I feel that this post will end up so we’ll go with it for now. 

An Introduction So who is Therapie Clinic? Therapie is the largest provider of laser hair removal in Ireland and Northern Ireland. They offer a wide range of services using brands such as Image Cosmetics, Yon Ka, and Murad in their treatments. Each treatment is tailored to the clients skin and focussed on nurturing the body and skin. And if you’re in the market for injectables? Stay away from those tanning salons and stick with the professionals! 
When I was approached about the opportunity of collaboration with Therapie I was given the choice of what I thought would be suitable for myself. I have long been considering Laser Hair Removal - even going so far as to try out IPL removal in the past - and so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to finally get it done. 
After my first consultation with the wond…
