Blowdries & Bubbacue

Sometimes you need a wee day to relax and breathe. I am absolutely loving my post-graduate course at university but I'm still somewhat stressed. When I suggested to my blogging BFF Avril from School Gate Style that we have a chill day, she was on the phone to Andrew Mulvenna to book the appointments in an instant! We headed to Andrew's beautiful salon at 10am for 2 bouncy blowdries. My stylist Manny was lovely. He is also a Kerastase specialist and we talked a lot about my hair texture and type. I have naturally curly hair which I find hard to manage but he agreed with me growing it... the curls will definitely sit better!

Did you know Andrew Mulvenna is the only stocklist of Keraskin in Northern Ireland? I must try it out! 

On our way to Victoria Square we stopped at Gloucester Street for a little OOTD. I am wearing my new favourite coat which is from Primark. They have some amazing coats this season. The mac style with leather arms is classic but still young and fun. It's also not too heavy but keeps the heat in. I teamed it with a denim polka dot shirt which is also from Primark. On my bottom half are Matalan leggings (which are great quality and very like the Zara pair I frequently wear) and my knee boots which are last A/W from M&S. These boots were one of the greatest purchases I ever made. They cost me £100 at the time but I get so much wear out of them and they are so comfortable. As with my last OOTD, I am carrying my bag from TK Maxx. 

After a little trip to buy myself some new cardigans, we met up with Avril's husband, Brian and our fellow blog chum Jeff from the Belfast Times for a Bubbacue lunch. I love Bubbacue because it's kitsch and great value for money. Their homemade sauces are simply delicious.  

Overall, a fabulous day!
