May Catchup


I knew May was going to be a hectic month. I started back to work on the 9th and have been slowly building up my hours each week. Additionally I have been trying to get out at least once a week after work to try and get me used to long days again. This has involved a lot shopping and a lot of walking. I am broke and drained but I have pretty things and hope to show them off to you very soon. You know I like to be super thorough when I'm testing out new products. 

I'm not complaining though, it's been an excellent month. I was very privileged to be invited along to LUSH Belfast's first ever blogger event. On that day I squeezed in work, lunch with a friend, the cinema, the event itself and then a quick bite to eat in Five Guys Belfast afterwards. I'm exhausted just remembering it. 

I'm determined not to overdo it though. Especially with June promising to be a very busy and very adult month (I'm becoming a Fairy Godmother in less than two weeks!)

Tonight I'm heading for dinner at Deanes Love Fish to celebrate the launch of Lough Neagh Eel season with their #EelsAreTasty menu. Anyone who knows me knows I'm a huge seafood lover and Deanes is one of the ultimate restaurants in Belfast. 

I'm a tiddley bit excited. 

As always I have been documenting my adventures on snapchat. If you want a daily snoop of my rambles and my super adorable pet Mad Eye Meowdy. He's slowly becoming a superstar. Just save my snap code below!

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

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi

Shazam! Movie Review

I’m living in a world where I’m still excited after coming out of a DC movie and, honestly, it’s about damn time! Having been frustrated with the recent Aquaman and Wonder Woman movies who were supposed to be game changers for DC but ended up delivering nothing but clichéd tropes, lazy joke writing, laughable CGI; albeit with a slightly lighter tone than their usual dark and dreary aesthetic. I was nervous about Shazam but ready to accept my usual “It’s a good mindless watch but needs more fun” opinion. For the most part my normal quibbles have been ironed out and the fun is plentiful! Shazam is packed full of genuinely funny jokes, there are true surprises in the story which, unless you’ve read the comics, you would have no clue from any of the promotional materials. Zachary Levi, who has long been one of my favourite cult/nerdy actors, brings his usual charisma and charm to the role and you have no issue believing that this is a 15 year old kid who is stoked to have these life chan
