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?

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

No Halloween Costume Needed

It's become an accepted norm that once December 1st comes around the nations will don their snowflake print leggings and their novelty jumpers but so far the other seasons are lacking in their effort. Yes, Halloween is famous as being the single greatest costume day of the year but I need October to step and represent in the seasonal apparel game. 
Thankfully retailers have heard my inner goth cry and have come up with some seriously cute Halloween inspired items. For those who love a slogan tee you have every variation of saying that could possibly be made by rhyming witch with bitch and if you don't say every one of with Emma Roberts' attitude then you need to watch season 3 of American Horror Story immediately!  


Dressing with the seasons is clearly big money but it doesn't have to cost the world. Here are my choices of how to get into the Halloween spirit all under £30. 

Boohoo
Starting with my favourites because I can! I actually bought the first two dresses and I'…

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson







Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
