I'm leaving, are you coming with me?

I think the past few days are catching up on me. I haven't been this tired for ages and I've been feeling ill on and off, but I guess you gotta power through (and then nap).

So recently it was my school's prom! It's a nice occasion to mark surviving through secondary school. Our school holds two, one for the year 11's and then one for year 13's finishing Sixth Form, so this prom actually felt like an ending. As great as prom is, I'm sure most girls can agree that finding the right dress is a hugely stressful task! I searched every online store I could think of, determined not to buy something from the high street that someone else might wear. Eventually, the frustration took its toll and I opted to make mine. It was pretty easy to make since it's just a lace shirt and skirt with a slit. We also have an abundance of black lace in my house and I didn't want it going to waste. I wore a gold belt to tie it all together and then the gold theme spread to my nails, ring and eye makeup. Before I left, I had time to take some pictures in the garden, which I know isn't the most glamorous location for photos but I wanted a photo with the roses.

So have any of you attended prom recently? Tell me where you found your dress! Also I'm sure you've heard that Google Reader is shutting down on July 1st so if you want to keep getting updates from my blog then please follow me on Bloglovin.

Gold and Turquoise Nails

Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a better weekend than I am. My exams start on Tuesday so I've mostly been inside revising. On one of my breaks I decided to do my nails. I didn't really want to go into the exam hall with bare nails and I'm not completely sure why, I guess it's kind of a good luck charm thing. This is pretty similar to the colour scheme I went with for my GCSE exams, except that was green and gold as I was thinking Harrods. It ended up looking like moss, though. I think the turquoise goes much better.

I'm not sure when the next time I'll update will be but after my last exam on the 18th I'll have my freedom. Good luck to everyone else taking A2's (or any other exam for that matter) and I'll see you on the other side!
