My Thai Swedish Hot Oil Massage Bliss and how you can get it




Here's the thing: I love massages. I love getting them. I love giving them (I'm excellent at giving them actually). I love em. There's just something about lying face down and getting smacked about a bit that… wait… actually I stand by that, it's great.

Here's the other thing: I can't afford all the massages my body craves! I'm not an inspo blogger, I don't have a tonne of money to throw about and live the glam life. I don't even have the money to pretend I live the glam life. I'm the girl who took a year long nail course and became a qualified nail technician because I couldn't justify spending £40 on a manicure but I could justify £200 on a life long skill. 

I like my value for money. 

This is why the Northern Ireland based Ohh Social is the perfect app for me. It's all about the value for money and it's all about the price per use. So what is it?



Essentially it's a Buy One Get One Free app for restaurants, coffee shops, bars, beauty salons, cinemas, hotels, gyms, activity parks, kids activities... Pretty much everything you can think of it you wanted to treat yourself or the family. You pay an annual fee and BAM the world (of Belfast) is your oyster. You even get a little counter of how much you've saved!

If you're looking for a recommendation of what to pick first? Go for the Swedish hot oil massage at Thai Orchid. You will NOT regret it! The girls are lovely, the atmosphere is very zen; you will glide out after your time is up. 


*the app and the massage were gifted to me by various parties however all opinions are my own.

Foundation Focus - Revlon Colorstay For Normal/Dry Skin

We need to talk about brand consistency. I'm a fussy shopper but I'm also a lazy shopper. What I need from a brand is the ability to, once I’ve found my shade, know that I can go across the products in that brand with the confidence that everything matches the same. Think Benefit Cosmetics brow range - I'm shade 3 and no matter what product I lift I know that I'm going to be shade 3. 
Why can't this be the same with foundations? 

Lets take Revlon for example. Now I still haven't quite forgiven Revlon for discontinuing one of the best foundations I've ever tried. Their Age Defying foundation was one of the creamiest and dewiest foundations I've ever tried. It felt wonderful on my skin and I truly mourn it. 

I colour matched at Shade 10 - Buff for a tanned skin

And so I moved on to their Colorstay range. Colorstay was slightly more fluid and came in two formulas - one for dry and one for oily skin - but it was a bit of a nightmare in it's original bottle …

DIY Christmas Nails for the lazy featuring Kiss Nails & Leighton Denny

Upcycling isn’t just for furniture. I’ve spent weeks searching for the perfect press on nails with a Christmas vibe but either everywhere was sold out or they just weren’t right. 
So I took matters in to my own hands.
My goal was simple: Cheap, quick, low effort and sparkly Christmassy goodness - this ruled out doing my own extensions or going to a salon!  I took some Kiss Acrylic French nails, reshaped them slightly to give a slightly more almond curve than true round. I then topped with Leighton Denny Twinkle Twinkle and my a stash of Christmas decals that I’ve had for yonks; they came in a Colour Club set many many years ago - can’t we please marvel at how far I’ve come since that post?!
I’m going to point out that using five year old decals is not the best option, they were brittle as f*ck and a bit of a nightmare to apply but my mind was set and after a few attempts I got there.
To add an extra strong finish I cured with two layers of Gelish Top It Off from my kit - I wouldn’t usually…

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 ground up lea…
