* Graduation Ball 2014 *








Dress - eBay (Originally Monsoon)
Bag - eBay (Originally M&S)
Shoes - Kurt Geiger


Hello Lovelies! 

Well, it's been a week of never-ending graduation celebrations! Last Wednesday I graduated, and then on the Thursday I attended my university's graduation ball, which was such a glamorous night! I absolutely loved getting to dress up and look fancy, especially with all my gorgeous friends around me. The night was filled with great food, music and lots (I mean lots!) of dancing! Now this may shock some of you, but two thirds of my outfit came from eBay! I couldn't find a dress in town that I loved and after spending an evening trawling online, I managed to win the bag for £5.99 and the dress for an unbelievable £12!! - Best bargains ever or what?! 

I had a fantastic night and I'm now sad to say goodbye to many of my uni friends, who are off to travel the globe and/or venture into the big bad world of employment. After the busy week I've had, all I want to do now is put my feet up with a cup of tea and some biscuits. Growing up can wait. 

More soon,

Helen
