I am pretty sure that i'm not the only one releived that it's finally the weekend. My first week back at school couldn't have been worse: "GCSE exams" "GCSE revision" "GCSE's are so close"- no pressure at all then. Except, for last night which made up for my horrid week.
It was my friend Hannah's birthday, so we went to hers for a 'dinner party'. To start, the venue: her beautiful conservatory, which I could only describe as an (even better) replication of the huge green house of plants in kew gardens (which I stupidly can't remember the name of right now). It was a really, really fun night (depressingly, probably the last night out until the end of my exams). Happy birthday to Hannah (:
Before the night began, I also had a photoshoot. I was taking photographs for my friend Becci for her American Apparel application which requires head-to-toe and head shots. After skillfully coming up with four 'crazy' and 'very american apparel-ey' outfits (note, this explains the crazy pineapple hair), we shot in lots of frames from a construction site to a bathroom, to the front of Hannah's beautiful house.
Photographs from the dinner party follow, I will be showing many more photographs from the photoshoot in my next post, only one for now (:
After reading Phoebe's blog, I was so, so delighted to hear about Topshop releasing a make-up line. Additionally, I am equally excited (such an understatement) about MAC's 'Pret-a-Papier' collection. Everything about the collection appeals to me, from matte pigmented powders, to vellum blushes. I love neutral shades, and the collection was based around creating a 'paper doll' perfect look. Don't get me wrong, I love coloured make-up too, I think it's just easier for brightly coloured make-up to go wrong and look awfully 'tacky'. I'm hoping to grab a good highlighter from the collection, fingers crossed that it'll be perfect. MAC are also launching a 'MAC: To the beach' collection, but none of the bright oranges and corals really appealed to me as much as the Pret-a-Papier collection.
And this, fellow bloggers, was the best cake ever; chocolate truffle cake with praline filling.
Til next time,
