Graduation Ball

Tuesday night my friends and I celebrated our last summer ball whilst at University. It makes me feel so sad that these amazing three years are nearly over.  We all had such an amazing night, with great food, lots of alcohol and amazing company. It was lovely that my old housemate who now commutes came down for the evening. We all got ready together, the boys were sorting the drinks with Bennie making his very own cocktail; Ben’s Bollocks and we just had the most special evening.

It was lovely to see people who I have met at University, who I don’t get to see very often. I feel kind of sad, that I never made much more of an effort with those people. In first year life is so much more convenient when you live on campus. But when you move to your own house, you can’t help but feel too lazy to visit your friends. I regret this. I regret not making a lot of effort with my friends, and as a result lose contact with most of them.

The ball was held at Northampton’s Royal and Derngate with stilt walkers, magicians and photo booths. It really was amazing! My friends and I purchased the gold ticket; where we had a three course meal. I had put vegetarian option, but swapped with my housemate half way through. Later in the evening Lethal Bizzle came on stage along with some DJ’s a few bottles of wine and a boogie.

My graduation ball outfit: 

My graduation ball outfit is in fact a top and a skirt. The skirt is from a little shop in Camden; I got it in the closing down sale for £18 reduced from £34.  The top looks slightly oriental from Topshop; You can get it here; My bag is from Newlook from a year ago.  My shoes are a new purchase from newlook.  My lipstick is 365 Plum Passion from Maybelline.  Boyfriend’s Bow tie is from Topman, (for those who are wondering).
