I always feel like I’m really busy during the week but when it comes to writing my Sunday Summary posts all I have is pictures of food and drink! This week has been legitimately busy though as I’ve been trying to get ready for my graduation, which is on Thursday. Who knew there were so many forms to fill in and things to book and things to buy just to be able to graduate?! I went shopping earlier in the week to try and find a black skirt and some nice heels to wear but couldn’t find anything I liked at all. I do, however, own about a million black dresses so I’m just going to dig one of them out instead. I also found a pair of heels under my bed that I don’t think have ever been worn (I’m sure I bought them when I was still at school, so long ago!) so that will save me having to go on a panic hunt for shoes the day before.

It’s the grad ball the day after my actual graduation so I’ve been getting ready for that too. I ordered my dress from an online vintage store and got my mum to do a few little alterations to it while I was at home last week. I think I’m finally happy with the fit of it now. I ordered a clutch bag to go with it from ASOS which should hopefully be delivered tomorrow, fingers crossed it looks as nice as it did in the photo! As much as I love how easy online shopping is, I hate not being able to try things on or see the exact colour/sizes of things. Talking of shopping, how rubbish are all the clothes shops at the moment?! When I was shopping this week all I ended up buying were several pairs of tights and a jumper I’m not even sure I like. There were lots of sales on but I couldn’t find anything worth buying. I always feel like it’s been such a waste of a shopping trip if I come home empty handed! What’s on your wishlist at the moment?

On Wednesday my flatmate and I took advantage of Orange Wednesdays and went to the cinema to see Rock of Ages. It was a completely cheesy film but I was LOVING it, I’m such a big fan of 80s hair metal music! We went in the afternoon so there were only about 6 other people in the cinema, I was so tempted to sing along to all the songs but managed to restrain myself haha! It has made me really want to go CD shopping, it’s been so long since I bought any new music. I never download stuff from iTunes, I think I must be just about the only person who still buys CDs!

What have you been up to this week?

    The dress is so pretty 🙂 The shops are a bit crap at the moment, there's a massive Topshop where I live, and it has a sale, but there's NOTHING there! x

  • Alyse says:

    I think a shopping trip is wasted as well if I come home empty handed. On the flip side, I won't buy something just to buy something!

    I'm too turned off by Tom Cruise in his metal rocker hair to stomach seeing Rock of Ages, to be honest. So cheesy!

  • Your grad ball dress is gorgeous – I love it!
    Have a great graduation!
