Graduation

Hi lovelies,

So something really exciting happened last week, I graduated!! It was such an awesome experience I really wanted to share some of my day with you!


So the dress I wore is from Jacques Vert and I am still so in love with it! I got it on sale and was so happy to have found a dress I loved! I really wanted a white or cream dress as the robes are dark but it is beyond hard to find a nice one. I guess with it being wedding season and all its hard to find a formal white dress that isn't a bridal dress haha. 



Here are some photos from the ceremony itself. It was completely nerve wracking walking across the stage. My friends and family asked if I heard them cheering but I swear I just went in to shock and couldn't here anything!


Here is me and my boyfriend taking some photos. It was so crazy wearing the robes and I couldn't believe how heavy they were! 


And here is the classic in full robes obligatory facebook post photo! I also had the professional photo too so I can't wait to see that and share it with you all!

Have you had a graduation ceremony? Tell me your stories if you have!

Festival tips.

Hey lovelies!

So I having to put off holiday photos at the moment which is super annoying, but I do have some festival styles and tips for you guys instead.

With festival season officially here, I love planning outfits and thinking about what to wear. I wanted to share with you some little tips and tricks for festival fun.

If you really want a flower crown, you'll be able to buy one there.

My friend reaaaally wanted to wear a flower crown to this festival but she couldn't find one she liked. She ended up settling for one with big flowers which isn't really what she wanted. Once we got there, there were so many people selling them, she ended up just buying another one. With fun accessories like flower crowns or glitter tattoos, you can do that on the day. 



Combat style boots are a great alternative to wellies

Not everyone can afford to splurge on a great pair of Hunter wellies, and most wellies have a huge downside; they rub your feet like mad. So many of my friends have had blisters from it despite wearing 3 pairs of socks. If you have an old pair of solid leather ankle boots, these can work just as well, and won't hurt you. 



Pack-a-mac's are your friend.

This one is really old but I also have a Parker in your Pocket that was less than a tenner from Primark. They're also really lightweight and won't let you get too hot which is always a plus if it does rain.




Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo will never go a miss and is something that can be a total life saver at a festival!


Take a bag you wouldn't mind getting ruined/stolen

People spill drinks and unfortunately steal things at festivals. Don't take anything you really treasure. Same with your phone, take an old/cheap one if you can. 



I hope you enjoyed this post and enjoy any festival you go to this summer!
