At the beginning of the week I had various events which were all great fun including Boux Avenue who had teamed up with GirlMeetsDress to give us the perfect underwear and lend us a designer dress! I must admit I love underwear and fell in love with most of the items. After having a bra fitting (I was already wearing the right size) I chose this set as they were the same colour as the dress I had picked too although my favourite is this bra. The dress I went for from GirlMeetsDress was a Carmen Marc Valvo number which is a laced sleeve cocktail dress, available here. I also had my makeup done by the beautiful Lamiese (Facebook page here/ blog here) before we were taken to Beach Blanket Babylon for dinner and drinks which was delicious!
I was really pleasantly surprised by the bra sizes that they carry and just how comfortable they are, none of that breaking it in business.
The next day was my graduation, finally! After finishing university in the summer I had to wait until November to actually graduate and it was a pretty full on… and freezing cold day. For those wondering I graduated with a 2.1 Ba (Hons) in Marketing with fashion (if you want a whole blog post on my degree/uni experience let me know). I wore a midi dress from ASOS as I wanted something nice but quite conservative, I went for the wine colour but it also seemed to be the most popular colour for dresses!
On Friday I took Smart Car up on their offer to borrow a car for the day to promote their current campaign which gives you guys to take part in a virtual/real time hunt for Smart Cars hidden in Manchester, Bristol and London and I’ll share more info on that soon. Now I had never driven an automatic car but I was up for the challenge. And it was a challenge. After a little bit of time working out how to actually drive a non-manual car we were off and I feel in love with the Smart car so quickly. The petrol tank is tiny, since it is a tiny car and doesn’t need a lot of fuel which makes it great on the pocket. It’s pretty spacious for just two people and I even liked that it was automatic, so easy to drive and you can even park it sideways! If I didn’t love driving so many people around I would seriously consider swapping my car for it (Actually, I am considering it).
Once I was finally on the move we went to Westfield for some shopping and lunch before heading for a quick unplanned walk in Primrose Hill. I was simply planning to drive past it but all the leaves looked far too pretty to pass. We then had cupcakes at Hummingbird (Red Velvet of course!) and went to look at the Covent Garden Christmas lights. If you want to get involved check out the Smart21 website
Yesterday we had a graduation party for me with my closest friends and family which was great fun! We had dinner and danced far too much. I wore the ASOS cami Slip which I had to basically hunt down and seems to be out of stock again.
And today I stayed in bed (luckily I’m not showing you a photo of that) to recover from a busy week.
Hope you all like this type of post, although today’s turned into a bit of an Instagram round-up one
