And I Shall go to the Ball...

A Ball they called "IrressitaBALL"...major chessefest name, no? It was my end of year ball at university and I obviously had to attend, and make my mark so no one would forget me! Last year it was called 'Twilight' (blog post here) which is much more fitting seen as I LOVE TWILIGHT.

For once, I didn't buy a new outfit and just mixed-and-matched all my exsisting clothes, although wearing three skirts IS a good look to get that extra puffyness, boy did I feel the heat when I got into my 'grooves'! It was not nice...I had to end up fanning myself with the top skirt layer...and show the world my tutu underneath. IT WAS SO HOT! I was sweating buckets...so much that my pores got clear and my skin felt super smooth afterwards (I know that is kind of gross...but its the truth)!

I got my littlest sister to do my hair, so that I could wear the fascinator tophat again (which I wore in this Razzle Dazzle post). I got a fat frenchie plait and masses of curls:

Some outfit pictures! I wore a Primark dress (black and white) with a H&M tutu, floral skirt which was made by my sister, the one who also made these geometric glasses, H&M fascinator, H&M denim jacket and LA Gears. And yes, I do look a little circus-act like, but I rather like the look...its 'fun' and remeberable!

(oh and a last minute munch with the hotdog in hand)

A highly enjoyable night indeed, until 5am..which meant 1.5 hours sleep for a 9hour shift the next day!

As some of you may know, I'm going Portugal on Tuesday! So this will be the last post before I go. I have so much stuff to do, like tidy and pack, before I head off for the sun, sea and sand. I hate this part of holidays: the preparing before and the unpacking after...It sucks...

Hope you guys all have a good week, and I will try and enjoy Portugal as much as I can, Internet-less and (almost) phone-less! Off to do a spot of tidying...See you all in a week...when I report back with pictures and, hopefully, a hot tan!

You look amazing! Well done for not buying a new outfit as well - I am impressed!

As for my chav necklace, I'm afraid that when it's not paired with a tracksuit and terrible hair I am rather fond of it so you won't be taking it off my hands! However if you want one it was just from Topshop - they might still have some! Have a great time in Portugal! :) x
