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!

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…

Lush Slap Stick

I’m going through a bit of a rut. Of course “a bit of a rut” doesn’t really cover what I’m going through but let’s leave the tough stuff to my doctors and new therapists and stick with “rut” here. Anyways… it’s taken it’s toll on me, both emotionally and physically. On the rare days when I have the mindset or strength to wear makeup I hate it. My self care routine has gone the way of the poop emoji and although I wasn’t actively looking for a solution I knew that I needed something that would help hide the neglect I was doing to my skin and lessen the damage.

This was when I discovered the new Lush Slap Stick foundation. Their selling point is that their unique packaging free range of makeup helps reduce waste and is completely eco friendly. My buying point was that I could slap it on my face any which way and give it a quick blend out without looking like a toddler who discovered their mums pan stick and, with its coconut oil base and a whole blend of other oils, it would at least h…

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 another …
