Asos Curve: sHell Yeah!



There's a movement in Belfast right now called #freethenipple. It was started by the lovely girls of Go Girl who decided they were bored of the internets double standard for women and they have made a hilarious music video which I will link below.

Despite the internets apparent revulsion of the female form and all of its small bumpy bits, there are elements of the fashion industry that still seem determined to remind us that they are there and that we should draw as much attention to them as possible. 

I'm all for this!

Asos Curves' "Shell Yeah" vest is a prime example of this. Every girl in our generation has grown up coveting a clam bra like the Disney Mermaids we all wish we were. Heck, if you search the Internet deep enough you'll find that some people have actually made some! That's a different post, maybe. This vest gives you the clam bra look without the pesky plankton ickyness.

I picked it up in the recent 20% sale because I rarely buy anything these days that isn't sale but, if I'm being truly, soul searchingly honest with myself, I would probably have bought this full price. It's only £16 and brings me one step closer to being an actual mermaid (which you'll have noticed is a bit of a theme recently). 



Watch the Go Girl video here and if you're in Belfast on the 27th June come to their debut gig in The Bar With No Name!

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 &
