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!

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

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano

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 f
