For those with upcoming graduations or even the people who may have already graduated, we all know how stressful finding the right outfit can be. It took me months deciding on a colour, fit and style and even longer to find something that fit those categories! I wanted simplistic and timeless so that in years to come when I look back at my pictures I won't think to myself 'what the hell was I thinking', although I probably still will. I ended up choosing a yellow dress to compliment the gold detailing on my graduation gown; I feel the corresponding colours helped pull the outfit together. 

This dress from Zara has padded shoulders, a detail that I wasn't keen on, however as my mother pointed out it will act as a good foundation for the gown to sit on, and as always, mother knows best. I kept my accessories simple, sticking to the jewellery I wear on a daily basis. 

Shoes were at the top of my priority list as I knew it would take me the longest to decide...I was torn between a pair of statement beauties or classic simplicity, in the end I settled for simplicity and comfort with these Dior heels. I loved the golden strip on the back of the shoe which catches the light as you walk, as you all know, little details are my greatest weakness. 

First and foremost, pick shoes that are comfortable! You want to have confidence walking in them - nobody wants to be the person being remembered for falling over! If you want to be ambitious or step out of your comfort zone, then do so, just practice a lot before the big day. Lastly with new shoes, wear them in a little around the house so that your feet are accustomed to them, after all you're going to be in these all day!

I adore this hand-made graduation gift from my baby sister, she is a Crocheting Queen!

Reenactment of UP! :D
When people tell you that some of your best years in life will be whilst studying at University, they weren't lying. Having graduated I have come to treasure and appreciate the many little things that come with everyday life. I feel truly blessed for the friends I have and the memories we've shared during our years together; the many hours we 'all-nightered' and wasted away procrastinating will be an irreplaceable experience. All in all I feel truly blessed and thankful for your love and support and may the next chapter in our lives lead us all to happiness! 

Ending it all with an honorary cap throw

Take us to Turkey!

Choose your shade! 

Traditional Crepes 
Quad Biking Crew!

To celebrate us all graduating we decided to go on a group holiday to…Turkey! We rented out a villa, which gave us lots of privacy and flexibility to plan out our day’s activities; as it wasn’t peak season yet we had the complex facilities to ourselves, which was bliss.

Given my luck something was bound to happen, of course I caught the flu on our 3rd day and was relatively ill for the remainder of the trip, it still baffles me how I managed to get the flu in 30°c plus weather. Despite this I enjoyed the trip immensely and loved all the activities we did, from boat tours to quad biking and some of the more adventurous did parasailing (not me!)

This was a great way for us to create more memories together before having to go our separate ways, I hope we can find time to get together soon and go for Round 2!
