What a Cheek!




One thing I can't help but think when I look at my collection of make up is "I'm pretty sure I've lost a tonne of these" I know for a fact that there are at least two MAC cream blushes missing and a few Benefit boxes too (at one point I had two Thrrrob's because I stocked up when they discontinued it... still mourning btw.) Do I have any idea where they are? Nope. Am I going to miss them? OF COURSE but not really because look at the pretties I still have!

I'm a huge Benefit Blush fan. It's pretty much the only Benefit product I will religiously love. Yes the Mascaras are great and the novelty products are fun but, for me, it's all about the cheeks! Give me a blush, bronze and highlighting product and I will be happy. 

Other favourable mentions are Marks & Spencer's Limited Collection Pink Mix Blusher (a delightfully checkered mix of pinks, purples and corals) an added bonus is that its hypoallergenic so I don't feel bad using it without foundation, The Sleek 'Blush By 3' Trio are a recent addition and they really pack a punch.


So those are the most used of my blushes, have you any recommendations of your favourites?

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
