New York & London Fashion Week Nails. Bex's Instagram favourites.


I don't know about you but for the past two weeks my Instagram has been chocked full off the New York & London Fashion Weeks and I've been so inspired by some on the nail artistry happening. 

Here I have collated some of my favourite artists/salons and looks from the two weeks and shall spend the next few months basque group in the trends ready for Autumn and Winter. 



No contrasts here. It's all about black on black and white on white. Although you might find it difficult to find a foundation to match. For now.


Sophy Robson is one of the ultimate nail artists. It is one of my dreams to visit her London salon. One day!




Negative space and Minimalist nails are not going anywhere by the looks of things. I love that these perfect straight lines were all my hand. Deceptively difficult but so effective!



Sharmadean Reid and her extensive team of WAH nails girls are usually one of the first salons to create, pick up, or bring back trends. Here we can see they're rocking the 90s Nail Piercings. Time to hoke out my old piercing tool then! 




Essie proving that gold is never old if you can mix it up with the minimalist trends. 




This look from Caseynails actually took me a bit by surprise. It's quite "old school" nail art, a bit of a throw back to when everyone was starting out and just trying to perfect their lines. Perfect for recreating. 


Sophie of The Illustrated Nail is another name you need to know if you're in any way interested in nail art. Here she used a custom mix of 3 polishes to create this deep Oxblood red for Jasper Conran! *makes note to buy all the Oxblood colours I can find*


Enough of all these wearable looks though here are some ridiculous avant-garde looks from CND (of Shellac fame) at NYFW.



Imagine heading down to post office with these bad boys on! *pokes eye* 



So that's my Instagram run down. So inspired by these looks and can't wait to get to work.

Which are your faves?

5 or more Northern Irish foods you need to seek out now!

With tourism on the rise, Northern Ireland is fast becoming known for its foodie culture; and rightfully so because we have some of the best produce in the world! And that’s not just fluffy talk, it’s hard fact. If you go on holiday in Europe the likelihood is that you’ll be eating Northern Irish seafood, as close to 80% of our catch is exported. Take a walk around the luxurious halls of London’s fortnum & masons and you can buy Northern Irish beef. We produce mutton and Rose Veal but we send more across the water than we sell locally. And it’s not just meat and fish. This weekend I was invited down to see the Food NIpavillion at the Balmoral Show, Food NI specialise in showcasing food grown and produced exclusively in Northern Ireland. There is all sorts of amazing produce coming out of NI and after tasting some amazing goodies at this years Balmoral Show (my first year going but hopefully not my last!) I just had to share my favourite picks.

Stocking Up On Old Favourites - Benefit Cosmetics

There is a temptation, when trying to summarise a period of time, to use all matter of banalities. "Oh, what a few weeks it has been" I find myself thinking, and indeed it has been a crazy few weeks. Its been a crazy few months! I have gone from being settled in a, fairly comfortable, long term job to switching careers in to a completely different industry on a temporary contract with no security, no back up, and no real idea of what I would do if it all went tits up. I was balancing this by taking on extra work with the blog, attending an uptake in hospital appointments and undergoing extra, ongoing, tests; becoming a god mum for the second time, becoming a kitty re-homer, and a tonne of other things which I can't even put in to words. 
And then right at the end I found out that I was being made permanent; my risk had paid off. My new employers were ecstatically happy with how I was settling in and the stars aligned when a position opened up and I could cross over to sec…

Faeriwood Craft Corner ft Sarah Jayne Chalk Paints

Every now and again I get the craft bug and start looking through my flat to find things to paint, stitch, or just make pretty. Of course in a one bed flat with a very curious cat that is easier said than done so when I received these chalk paints from Sarah-Jayne Chalk Paints I had to look smaller than I would have liked. I picked up this jewellery box as part of a £1 lucky dip box at an auction waaaaaaay back when I first moved in. I basically kitted out my whole flat for twenty quid (see my auction adventure here). Ever since it has been sat on the dresser I picked up at the same auction waiting to be painted. 

The time has come. 
Step 1: Sand!
Now I know you don’t need to sand with most chalk paints and the Sarah-Jayne Chalk Paints are no exception to this; however the drawers on this box were already super tight and I knew I needed to sand them down or else the added layers of paint and wax would just weld them closed permanently. I sanded the entire thing by hand and it took foreve…
