Just a trim?

So here's the thing. For about 4 or 5 years now I've been determined to cultivate super long, super ginge "Mermaid hair". It's been a running joke amongst friends and is often commented on by Bathroom Strangers. Bless those compliment bearing Bathroom Strangers, the ultimate ego boost.

My hair stylist, the phenomenal Sharon from Paul Stafford, bless her every time I go in has had the challenge of trying to keep it as healthy as possible whilst living up to my demands of cutting only the bare minimum to my damaged ends.

Yeah... Not this time.  



This time I said "go for it" and boy did we! 

A 70s Shag cut with blonde through the back and ends so that when the mood takes me I can put the crazy colours I have stashed through it. Sharon informed me that in Stafford the Shag is known is "The Melter" due to the abstract nature of the layers and the constant need for the stylist to switch up their angles. Having been told for many years how much of a head melter I am myself, I think me and this cut shall be friends for a long while. 



Just a little different. 


This morning I'm still loving it. The social media response has been crazy and makes me think I should get my hair cut more often! 

I'm super grateful to Sharon for my cut and Cheryl for my colour. I can't recommend Stafford Hair enough! I'd say everyone should go there but that would only mean that they'd be too busy for me and all the many friends I have that already go. Check out their Instagram @WeAreStaffordHair and you'll understand just how fab they are. 

In the mean time we shall memorialise the Mermaid hair. Gone but not forgotten. 

RIP

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

Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

  A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast.  I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare.  Spoiler alert: I loved them.  The course was three treatments over three months -  slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers schedule   and their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my  first Therapie post  I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love.  It’s im

The one where I get to play as MUA!

Oh it's been a busy couple of weekends for little ole me but it's been a blast! I had the great opportunity of helping out my friend Narelle with her zombie movie! Now we all know I'm used to handling a camera or giving the orders in this kind of thing but this time I was set a different task: Makeup! Let me tell you it's been a long time since I've done anything zombie related (6 years in fact) so I jumped at the chance to muck in and try something different. The twist of the whole thing of course is that it's not just a zombie movie, it's a zombie movie for kids! Starring all of Narelle's students from her drama school.  So me and my 3 fellow MUAs (don't worry I'm not going to declare myself a professional just yet) got stuck in to our cast of 75 for each of the 3 days of production. That's about 60 kids and 15 adults by the way. Every day! Man I'm tired! But it was great craic and below you will see, my kit, some of my work on the adul
