After my relaxing day time treats with Claire at Le Caprice and the RA on Saturday, I had to head back to the club after and get ready to go out for Alex's birthday. A group of us were going to the Spice of Life pub in Soho to see Bad Ass Brass play to celebrate London Jazz Festival, so I wasn't sure what the dress code would be. After pulling on my black jeans, a nice top and a blazer, I felt too overdressed so just threw back on what I was wearing during the day, and then did my hair and make-up to make me look a little fresher.
I am completely and utterly in love with this tartan skirt. Seriously, I never thought I'd love tartan so much, so naturally I had to get a selfie in the mirror in the club powder room. Also, my hair, I'd just like to say that the Babyliss Big Hair is my new saviour. It's literally the best electrical product I've ever owner (even better than my hairdryer or straighteners!), it gives me a blow-dry in 15 minutes. Ah-mazing. I have the 42mm 'old style' one, which is cheaper than the newer 50mm one but I think it gives more of a curl as the barrel is smaller? Anyway, I might do a full review/tutorial on it soon. But if you're thinking about getting one, just do it. Best hair product I've ever bought. You can buy it from Amazon for £34.99 and free delivery, woo!
After getting sorted I drove round the corner to the Spice of Life (don't judge, it was raining and I wasn't ruining my blow dry!), thankfully I found a nice parking spot just opposite on a Soho back street (Tip: when driving in central London, always always always check the backstreets as they often have free parking after 6:30pm rather than 10pm). I met my friends, grabbed a drink and some chips, and settled down to watch the Bad Ass Brass play their socks off. Scroll down to the bottom for a video; the drummer did an awesome solo, then the whole band came in and had the audience dancing!
Are you a Jazz fan too?
