So you want to be a mermaid?

If you grew up after the early nineties then of course want to be a mermaid! Ariel is everything and as much as it pains me she has become a role model to not just myself but thousands of girls (and boys) across the world. We'll just slide past the fact that she might not be the "healthiest" of role models and just focus on her sassy awesomeness, great hair and gravity defying clam shells. 

In lieu of an actual tail, and with the rise of the danish hygge trend (or at least a less alcohol orientated more comfort and coziness focussed form of hygge) mermaid tail blankets have become all the rage. They've even hit the high street by turning up in 
New Look.

My 31st birthday solidified my own personal mermaid transformation by producing not one, not two, but THREE mermaid blankets. My friends and family are awesome. 

 

I, of course, snapped them (Snapchat: Faeribex) and got a tonne of questions as to where they were from, I hadn't a clue but I've tried to track them down online to answer everyone's questions. 

 
 
 

Let's be honest this is a Dory blanket. A fricken Dory mermaid tail blanket!)

Seablue Handmade Knitted Mermaid blanket*
This is the closest blanket to an actual Ariel tail so it will fulfil all your little mermaid needs.

The tassels on this are pure crack for my cat, MadEye, the cute purple and blue mix knot make it a bit different from the normal styles out there. 

 
 

So if you have a mermaid obsessed loved ones birthday (or let's face it... Christmas is around the corner) then I definitely recommend fishing the internet for one of these. They will be forever thankful to you!

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

Etsy favourites: GrandmaThunderPants

I love shopping on Etsy and I'm absolutely in love with this Panda necklace I bought as a gift for my best friend. It's from a seller based in Florida called GrandmaThunderPants and oh my her store is amazing! So is her price point to be honest. I had to share it. It's the little extra touches I love when shopping on Etsy such as the foam confetti that came with the necklace. Too cute! (Or should that be Kawaii?) Don't you wish you were a zombie now? I kinda do. Find her as GrandmaThunderPants on Instagram or here on Etsy to see more. Grandmathunderpants Etsy

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
