Get Ready With Me - Black & White Formal Party

Hi everyone,
I'm so sorry there was no post on Sunday!
I was dying of a hangover and the most I could do was order a pizza.
However I'm back! Today I've got a little, and I do mean little, get ready with me.
Now this was going to be my first proper YouTube video, however my camera cut out half way through and then refused to charge leaving with about 20 minutes to finish doing my make up.
So I'm going to apologise as my photos are rubbish as they were taken on my iPhone and the fact there is not many close up of my face.
Dress -
Shoes - Topshop
Bag - New Look
Bracelet - Primark
The event was a birthday party for one my best friend's sister who decided on a black and white formal theme.
I was so excited about this as I had been dying to wear a ball type gown, after hours of searching on the internet for a maxi dress that had split in the leg. I ordered three to try on, one from ASOS, one from MissGuided and one from After trying them on it was decided that the boohoo dress was the best one for me.
I felt like a princess the moment I was fully dressed with my make up and hair done! I wish I could wear outfits like this out all the time.
Getting Photobombed!
I went to my local hairdressers to get my hair done as I felt like treating myself. I went armed with a picture of Lauren Pope and they set off to do the best they could do as my hair is so thick! However once it was all styled I felt like Ariel from The Little Mermaid! I has asked for Hollywood style waves/curls and I think she did a perfect job. However cause my hair is so thick it had pretty much dropped out by 9pm. *sad face*
Yeah we are crazy!
See I told the photos are bad! This is the best photo I could find of my make up, the night was such a blur of wine and shots that the rest of the photos shouldn't ever be put on the internet!
I was aiming for a nice Hollywood make up effect, think what you would see on the red carpet at The Oscars and such.
I was rather chuffed with my highlighter that night!
