The unexpected delights of Lidl Fashion


    

A few weeks ago I was given the chance to browse the entire Spring/Summer fashion collections being rolled out to Lidl stores throughout the season. Each week the stores will introduce a few key items so that you can build up the full collection if you wish. Nothing is over £12 (in fact most of it under £8) and the quality is pretty damn amazing with most pieces being fully lined and well tailored. 

A picture says a thousand words so I'll let them talk for themselves but I shall say this first; These pictures prove the importance of proper merchandising in stores, they prove that you should never judge a book by its cover (or an outfit by its plastic wrapped packaging) and they prove that you'll no longer walk past those slightly unappealing bins full of clothes at Lidl any more because, I promise, you'll miss out on some absolutely stunning bargains if you do.























Here I am marvelling at the stunning collections which feature classic trends such as nautical, bohemian, monochrome & pastels that not only can you wear this year, you can wear them every year.


But it's not all talk, straight after this event I hit up my local Lidl to see just how their beautiful displays translated in store. If I'm honest it was slightly underwhelming. Piled deep in wire bins the packaging resembles a school shirt. But, of course, as they only stock a few items per week there was plenty of choice with those few items. The size range is amazing. There are samples out of the packaging for you to feel and explore, it sounds a bit poncy but touch is such an important element when you aren't able to try things on. 






The price point is phenomenal. I bought this dress, trench coat, necklace and leggings for less then £30! That also included a huge bag of pistachios and a tub of chicken! Not too bad if you ask me. It definitely keeps in line with the Lidl ethos of not sacrificing quality for budget and I can't wait to gather more and more pieces over the coming months. They really are worth it. 


Oh and thanks to my wee brother for capturing this lovely windswept look. If only I could convince him to do it more often!

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

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

Hot Oil

Not of the olive variety. This morning I tried VO5 hot oil before washing my hair, I picked it up yesterday from my second home - Boots . I was a little dubious at first because it was only £2.18 for 4 tubes of it and I was thinking "hmmmmm, but theres an intensive conditioner over there for 8 quid and it must be better?"  NO, don't got for that over priced leave in conditioner give these little beauties a try first. Pop one out of the packet and stick it in a cup/sink of hot water for 60 seconds to heat it up. While it's got its feet up with a cuppa chilling out wet your hair  thoroughly. Get the tube from the hot water, pop it open and massage it into your hair. I concentrated on the ends of my hair as they are in the worst condition, then worked it through the rest of my hair. The pack comes with strict instructions not to leave it on for more that 1 minute as it's an intensive treatment it can cause irritation of left on any longer. So I was sharpish &
