Exploring ahead of ABC Style Week















*In association with Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council*

I'm so excited to be a part of ABC Style Week! I will be holding a workshop in Portadown Town Hall on Wednesday 11th October at 7pm. My workshop is called 'Get Styled, Get Body Confident'. Tickets are only£5 and can be purchased from: https://getstyledgetbodyconfident.eventbrite.co.uk/ 

Ahead of my workshop, I visited Lurgan and Portadown to check out what they had to offer in terms of fashion. I knew Lurgan quite well after a visit many years ago & numerous return visits to Alana Interiors (it's seriously worth the drive!).

We started out in Lurgan at Perfect Day - a bridal store. My mum recently got engaged so I am going to a bridesmaid next year. I tried on some styles to see what she might like - I absolutely loved the fit of the navy style I tried on. They have lots of great formal wear as well as bridal choices. We headed on up the town to The Curiosity Tea Room - they also sell cute scarves and bags. I loved the designer inspired fringe number! We also called into new beauty salon Pin Up - I spotted someone getting their nails done and they looked great. Their wall murals are perfect for selfies! Elegance Boutique also had amazing items - I wanted to bring the green sparkly bomber jacket home with me! We of course had to pop up to my favourite, Alana Interiors for a Mars Bar scone and a nosey around their clothes & gift section. I adore the brand Kate Loxton - they have gorgeous candles and clutch bags with cute sayings, making them perfect for presents! We also nipped to the gorgeous Chantilly Lace for more bridal goodness - I spotted the sweetest little flower girl dress. We also went to Jack in the Box which was so nostalgic for me as my grandmother was an avid knitter when I was a little girl. 

We then drove over to Portadown. I love the girls from The Bottom Drawer - a lovely sister duo with a great eye for gorgeous things. They sell great brands in terms of clothes and have lovely gift options. In the same street as them, Sitara Morgan has stunning shoes from brands such as Moda in Pelle and Marian (a fab Spanish brand). I took a shine to a pair of pony skin leopard heels! Not leaving out the men in our lives, Statement Menswear has fab gift options for the Christmas season as well as some of the nicest suits I've ever seen - definitely one to consider if you are getting married!

I cannot wait for my event in Portadown - I hope to see some of you there!
