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

Bex’s Mid Year Beauty Favourites 2018

This year I have been quietly chugging away in the back ground testing out some new - to me - products (or versions of) and I’ve decided it’s time to share. I guess I’ve been inspired by the multiple people this week who told me off for making them need to buy pretty things. So here are some pretty things for you that you may just want to buy even if you don’t need them! Ha!


I’ve been obsessing over Estèe Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye for months and I just can’t get enough of it’s balmy texture. Someone recently asked on InstastoryQuestions - mouthful - what my night time routine is and while most of the products change from night to night, this fella is consistent. 
A trio of delights here that took me by surprise. I recently declared that I had found my perfect mascara, but that doesn’t mean I won’t keep trying new ones. Wet’n’Wild Lash Renegade* really surprised me with its impact and, whilst the spool isn’t my all time favourite, I am really digging it.  Another Wet’n’Wild favou…

I think I’m turning Gluten Free

If you didn't sing the title of this blog to the tune of 80's classic "I think i'm turning Japanese" by The Vapours, then we can't be friends. I'm joking. Mostly.
Gluten Free is a pretty big buzz word these days and, having grown up with a Coeliac mum, and two aunts and various extended family members, from a young age, I’ve always been keenly aware of the impending possibility that some day I may get the dreaded news. Well that day has come.

As if I didn’t have enough issues trying to cope with IBD and various other issues already I now have to be one of those people who reads labels, double checks menus, and asks restaurant staff “exactly how is that prepared?” To try and avoid cross contamination.  One of the things I vowed during these early stages of my transition in to living a gluten free life, I am not going to be a complete nazi about things. Yes I’ll avoid binging on donuts and huge amounts of pasta and bread - I made that mistake once - but I gave…

Lush Belfast Gets a Glowup!

Stop everything you're doing right now. Lush Belfast have opened their new store in castle lane and it is everything and more and you need to go to it now. Ok maybe not now - it's quite late at night while I'm writing this - but you know what I mean. 




To give you an idea of size, the new giant sized shop is split in to 5 main sections - face, body, bath, scent, hair - each of which could have taken up the old shop on their own; gone are the days of claustrophobia whilst queuing for a sniff of the latest product, now you can take a seat and relax while you try them out. Speaking of products there are a tonne of new ones to choose from, with quite a few having previously been Oxford street exclusives. Now, I'm a die hard fan of the bubble bars and bath bombs but I think my new favourite section is the wall of bath oils. Designed to looks like tiny hand made chocolates, you may want to keep an eye on the kids if you're bring them with you, according to my source (ha!) …
