He's leaving home

Attended a friend's leaving party last night and for some reason all of us have been over excited for it all week and it did not fail! There was some excellent dancing (some even captured on film!) good food and even better cocktails!

My preparations for the party began super early at 9am with an appointment to get my eyebrows resculpted using the latest technique of HD Brows, a 7 step process to give you the best possible shape for your brows. They tint, wax, thread, pluck and fill in your brows. They also advise you on eyebrow maintenance and aftercare. I have to say that it was useful to know how to shape my eyebrows for the future but at £25 it is very expensive and overpriced in my opinion. I think that I will stick to the tweezers and the occasional threading for now.

In other news I was thrilled that I got my false eyelashes on first time last night as it usually involves a lot of fustration and bad results. I bought some budget lashes from Tesco as opposed to MAC and Shu Uemura and I would say that they are the same quality.

And lastly the outfit! I'm beginning to think that I am really picky when it comes to going out clothes. I don't like anything too tight but I do want something short and exciting. I also don't do heels as I have horrible flat, wide feet and bunions which are getting worse and on previous nights spent wearing heels have come home crying from the pain and spent the next day hobbling around the house so have given up on them to be honest. This does mean that my shoes are a let down in terms of the outfit but I try to compensate by drawing attention upwards.

Anyway after all that rambling here I am mid twirl in my new dress:

Earrings: H&M

Bolero: Yours

Tunic: Yours

Bangles: Primark

Leggings: New Look

Shoes: Next


  1. You look fab! Such a cool dress. I love it! I also don't do heels, my ankles are too weak after breaking them both at separate times. I am also the same about going out gear - I always end up in jeans and a top. I want to find some other bits. Naomi from Diamonds 'n' Pearls always looks amazing when she goes out.

  2. Thank you Claire, I really like it too. Not my usual thing but I decided to give it a go and was thrilled. There is a tie on it but I like it loose so I can twirl in it lol! I know feet are a pain and I find it difficult to get shoes to fit and I need half sizes really so these Next shoes are good.

    I know she always looks great! I so wish I had bought that animal print dress from ASOS as it would have been lovely! So annoyed that I didn't get it and then when i went back it had sold out, oh well.
