Apologies for taking so long to post, we've both been desperately cramming in every last piece of information we can for our A2 exams and we've been trying to find a spare moment to blog about our end of college prom!
After weeks of arranging houses/makeup/hair appointments, running around & searching high and low to find the perfect dress, we finally made it to May 31st. To celebrate the end of an era and the beginning of a new one, Amy bought us both friendship necklaces from Thomas Sabo - what a beautiful baaabe!!
I (Amy) picked Mia up at 10 and we headed STRAIGHT to Starbucks for a calorific cream-filled cup of frappuccino goodness to keep us going!
We both booked our hair-up's at Rush. They normally do a hair-up starting at £47, and we discovered that we can get student discount (20% is nothing to be sniffed at!) so each ended up paying about £40ish for it. We had some lovely girls doing our hair, they made a great job and brought us some trashy magazines to flick through whilst they began the magic!
Myself and Mia went for the beachy/wavy look, we have no makeup so 'scuse our butters faces.
We had some time to kill between hair and make-up (allowing our hair time to drop for the finished effect) so we wandered around some shops and met our good friend Lucy at spoons for some food!
Then we went to MAC in House of Fraser for our make-up. We both wanted fairly medium coverage, a pink lip and eyes that POPPED as we both have fairly large eyes that can get away with a little drama ;).
I (Amy) went for a gold smokey eye to compliment my black dress. The gold also complimented my sun-kissed skin from using sunbeds in the weeks leading up (which I, mia, was very worried about as it would have been
hilarious disastrous if she had gone red!)
|after. GOSH my face is not flattering (M)|
Amy - The makeup artist used number 3 lashes on me which i highly recommend. I couldn't help but buy the lipstick used, which was Creme d'Nude, and I also bought some glittery body oil which is in the new 'hey sailor' range. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. It's such a great 'going out' product, it gives you that really glittery party glow to your skin.
Mia - As my eye makeup and eyebrows were so bold, I didn't have any lashes as it'd be too much especially with the bright pink lip. I loved the drama of my face and this picture doesn't do it justice haha. The pictures later on, once dressed up, definitely show my face off much better! I also bought my lipstick which was 'snob'.
We then went to our friend Jess' for the pre-prom. Everyone looked so amazing, it was such a gorgeous way to end a 7-year transgression from shy little things in year 7 to now, leaving college and entering the real world (eep!) I'll post a few photos of the girls, hope they all don't mind but they all looked so stunning I just can't help myself!
Above and below are pictures of the back of my dress and SHOES! I was/am still totally in love with the cut of my dress, the cut out shape is a heart - so sweet! Also the incredible wedges will have a place in my heart, forever.
We didn't take many pictures inside as it was a little too dark and we were too busy chatting with our friends, dancing the night away and drinking. A lot. I (M) did manage to take a few quick snaps inside, as it was too pretty to be avoided! Here is a charming picture of Amy & our friend Amaia after a few drinks, however..!

oh yeah, i definitely fell over after the first 2 steps into the school car-park. Grazed my knee and adorned a fetching plaster for a few hours!
I love this photo (A).

So there you have it! We both hope you enjoy reading this post and looking at the pictures as much as we enjoyed sharing it with you. Until next time... M & A xo
