yeah we danced on table tops

Last night was prom and there was a major disaster of not being able to fit into my dress the night before, as usual I panicked and got angry at everyone and managed to break down into tears however not all hope was loss as my mum called up a dress maker and LUCKILY she managed to fit in a readjustment for my dress (it was originally zip up but she added a panel with hoops and made it into a corset so I could breathe) which brought the cost of it up to £120 which still was a fraction of the price it originally comes at. (Betsey Johnson, £400 for a dress brand new, bargain!) 

My hair was also a last minute disaster as I decided I wouldn't call up any salons and book to get it done because I wasn't bothered till I couldn't do anything nice with it myself, so I bought a cheap Primark headband and my mum got an appointment at Toni and Guy (my first AND last ever trip there) which cost £40 but the photos show that it was worth it due to the fact it didn't fall out of place once. My make up was done in boots however I put on mascara myself as the brand the woman used on my trial was disgusting and made my eyelashes all stick together and not look long and luscious at all!

Come the end of the night my shoes were gone, however I made it to 3 hours in them but I couldn't stand the pain of the blister and I felt like I was going to snap in half! I danced with Paddy (he's the really tall one) and Olly (who isn't in these photos) and some of my old friends but spent half the night outside really talking. Prom was definately over rated but it was lovely to be with my friends for "the last time" as such.

Cannot believe 4 inch heels still manage to make me look like a complete midget next to these boys, 6ft4 and 5ft10 is not a good look for the 5ft1 girl. Do not enjoy being the small one in the group :( Oh and how amazing is that car!


  1. Amazing dress! The hairdress is awesome!!
