Belfast Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 Launch





If you're a Northern Irish Fashionista then one of the events you'll keep a keen eye out for is Belfast Fashion Week and, of course, the official fashion week season begins with their launch a few weeks ahead of the shows.

Today I was invited to the launch in BFWHQ (just off the Dublin Rd) to check out a sneaky peak of the newest trends and the hottest items from Northern Ireland's High Street and Boutique stores. Seeing as I was in Belfast for an appointment already it was a fab opportunity to multitask and make the most of my trip to the city. 

I met up with my friends Sarah from The Sarah Story and Claire from World Of Kitsch and after a quick nosy around the venue (on the hunt for nibbles) we grabbed a Miel et Moi cupcake and then pitched our spots ready for the show. 

Last year I had a crap spot and wasn't able to get any photographs, this year I was a woman on a mission and pitched myself dead centre in amongst all the professional photographers. Definitely worth the few dirty looks I was getting in to bring you the above video and below photography. Multitasking at it's best! Don't forget to head to Belfastfashionweek.com to check out the itinerary and snap up some tickets. As our lovely host and event organiser, Cathy Martin, says tickets sell quickly and the High Street shows are always the first sell out so make sure you get in quick!

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!) …
