Lighthouse Raincoat for a mixed up Summer 💙

I know it's summer but when it comes to this part of the world you still need a raincoat. A good one. Especially this week! And this summer, I have been gifted this gorgeous blue one from Lighthouse Clothing - the lifestyle brand of local performance clothing brand, Target Dry.

All the Holiday Shhhtyle.....and that bloody back again

While we were on holidays the husband told me I go on too much about my back on here. Apologies if you agree but there is big news on the back this week so I'm talking about it again. It's at the bottom of this post so ignore away if you want to! 
Meanwhile, I need to share with you all my holiday style. Don't be expecting any organised capsule packing post here. I packed the WORST bag of rubbish to wear thanks to a hangover. But because of my trip to London (blog post coming next!) I was able to grab a few more bits from home to help me through the second week. The thing is that it's so hard to pack for a staycation on the North coast. We had amazing 25 degree heat as well as rain and cold. We also had sunny days where it was baltic and rainy days where it was hot. You'd have needed 4 wardrobes!

But I'll kick off with my (hungover) outfit for the journey up north....

16 Week Blow-dry at Monet Hair Belfast

Today I had a treatment on my hair that I've been wanting to do for ages. And I know it's only day 1 but I'm excited to share with you as my hair feels AMAZING - like it's never felt before. It's a QOD 16 Week Blow-Dry, available exclusively in Northern Ireland at Monet Hair on the Lisburn Road.

The salon opened last month and as per most events over the summer, I missed the opening because of my back. But I heard so many great stories about it and was reading up about the QOD 16 week treatment and just decided as a treat to my weary body, to give it a go.

So to set the scene, my hair is ok - it's not mad mad frizzy but it is very thick, coarse hair and needs to be worked with after I wash it myself. So much so, I mostly can't be bothered and I regularly pay £11 for a blow dry at Metro in Stranmillis. And here's where the thick coarse hair becomes a winner because a professional blow dry lasts me a full week. 

But with my swimming lessons and the summer holidays, it's been difficult to book blow dries and to get the full week out of them so when I add up what I spend on my hair over a period of 3-4 months, I figured this was worth a try.

So here's the before picture - outside the salon...
