Outfit: My Graduation Ball Dress

IMG_3976
So, Monday 8th June saw me attend my Graduation Ball... I honestly never thought this day would come, Grad Balls and Graduation, it all seemed like a far away dream, but what do you know, three years are up and here I am. Sussex Grad Ball was to be held at The Grand Hotel, on Brighton sea front. A gorgeous, iconic building, engulfed in history. There was to be hot dog stands, photo booths, pop corn and a live band. It was set to be a great night.

I had agonised over what to wear for weeks, I wanted to look and feel special, and not being very body confident, this seemed an impossible task. My Mum and I trawled the internet for the perfect dress and finally settled on this one from ASOS. It was in my favourite colour, it had a full skirt, a vintage jacquard print and it hid all my least favourite bits of my body. It was expensive, but perfect and I wanted to look back on my Grad Ball photos in years to come and not feel saddened by them and the way my body looked.

The grad ball ended up really being a great night- one to remember, even if I did wake up the next day with blisters all over my feet. Blame that on too much dancing!

Event: Style Haul x Beauty Con London Party

Unless you were living under a rock, it was hard to ignore the fact that this week just gone saw London host the first UK based BeautyCon! The beauty gurus and youtube fans alike went absolutely bonkers over the news and some of the industry's finest graced the expo hall for the event. I didn't end up attending BeautyCon, itself, but I couldn't pass up partying with all my friends and my Style Haul gang at the pre-con party in Dirty Bones, London with Style Haul and the BeautyCon organisers.

The evening was a YouTube star studded event, with USA and UK Style Haul partners meeting, in some cases, for the first time. There were cocktails and dancing and of course, a photobooth. I had so much fun and I wanted to share with you some of the official event photos, which I have borrowed from Style Haul's Facebook page.

It was great to catch up with the team behind Style Haul Uk, and see all my YouTube friends! There really ain't no party like a YouTuber party... Just saying. Speaking of YouTube (oh, did we see that smooth transition into a self promo?) are you up to date on all my new videos? I'm now a 'full time youtuber' for the time being so I'm throwing myself into my channel, heart and soul- you should jump on my train and join the ride!

Event: London to Brighton Mini Run 2015


If you don't follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you could be forgiven for missing the fact that for the past 5 years, my Dad has been restoring a classic Mini Park Lane for me. He is pictured above and after lots of blood, sweat and tears, Sir Eglamore (named after the Kate Rusby song) is road ready, making him one of only about 36 registered Park Lanes on the road! We registered him in the annual London to Brighton Mini Run, partly to show him off, partly to see if he could cope with the journey and partly just for a family day of fun. Spoiler alert: he behaved perfectly well and the ride went without a hitch. I thought I'd share some snaps I took on the day- it was mini madness.

I'm Wearing:
Tee: London to Brighton Mini Run 2015 owner's shirt
Jacket: Primark
Skirt: Vintage
Boots: Barratts
I wore a vintage skirt and petticoat, in order to fit with the throwback theme of the day, with most of the minis being classic Austins and promptly donned my 2015 mini run shirt to get into the spirit of the day. We enjoyed fish and chips on the pier, before strolling back through the stalls and throngs of minis, admiring the scene. 

The whole day was a lot of fun, with everyone on the journey waving and beeping at each other celebration of the run. Lots of fabulous minis added colour to Brighton seafront and it really is a site to behold. See you next year, London to Brighton!
