New Years Eve

Today's Song: The Lumineers- Ho Hey

The festivities all end today for me. We are taking the tree and decorations down today as is traditional. And then I'm back to uni tomorrow. Sigh. I've had such a lovely break and it's going to be a long hard slog until the next one. Although I have half term in six weeks, they have basically told us we will be working through it and not to book anything. But at least I won't have to get up early!

Here are the pictures from New Year. I wasn't really looking forward to it; I expected it to be too busy. I enjoyed getting glammed up and overly glittery though.

The dress is rather risqué! The top is cobwebby lace with a chunk of material to stop it revealing anything. I don't think it looks tacky though because of the cute skirt flsring out.

This photo wasn't posed at all!!

I've gone a bit blusher crazy there, but if you can't be over made up on New Years Eve, when can you?

I cannot explain how happy I am with these shoes! They are still just as shiny after the night out and were super comfortable. My feet only started to hurt in the takeaway afterwards but that was from all the dancing.

The back of the dress is my favourite, I love backless dresses. The tights laddered within about an hour of course!
In the end, it was a great night. We were at a cocktail bar with great drinks and cool music. The room we stayed in had a fun system with a booklet that you picked songs from and then texted the DJ with your requests!

Oh wow, you look absolutely stunning! That dress is so perfect, it's the perfect amount of playfullness and drama but still classy and sophisticated. And, well, those shoes are incredible! <3

Wow, Helen you look so amazing! I always love the way you do your hair and makeup (and the poses are always brilliant!) the whole ensemble is quite stunning! How are those wretched essays going? I remember my most hated one was the English assignment with the wretched reading and writing conference!

You looked beautiful for New Year's Eve! I love the look of your Asos dress and M&S hosiery. Your hair, makeup and nailpolish all looked very lovely too. New Year's Eve is a perfect time to look extra pretty. As for myself, I spent long hours New Years Eve and New Year's Morning doing a HUGE post titled "A Briefs Update Part 4 - with Customer Lingerie Review Videos" (I've since done post another titled "Customer Lingerie Review: Chantelle 'C Magnifique' Full Brief Panties").
