Class of 2014!

I HAVE FINALLY GRADUATED! It's so funny because I actually feel like I have been at Uni for about 20 years even though it has only been 4! For anyone who is interested I got a 2.1 BA (Hons) degree in Journalism and I am SO proud of myself…who would have thought all those nights in Viper Rooms would have paid off in the end! (For the record, Viper Rooms in a club, not the library, where I should really have been spending the majority of my time!)

Please ignore the fact I look preggo here…I'm not.
Dress- ASOS Petite
Shoes- Topshop
Bag- Louis Vuitton

I was going out of my mind trying to find a dress, because I needed to look like a sophisticated mama and to me, that requires a nice, fitted, pencil dress. The only issue I had with this was that the only dresses I liked were by Victoria Beckham, the cheapest being £1,200 so yeah you could say it was slightly out of my budget. It got to the week before the ceremony and I was SO close to having a f*ck it moment and just buying the dress when I discovered this nude creation on ASOS! It was only available in petite but I'm only 5'6'' so I thought it can't be too much shorter than the normal range and I purchased it anyway. It fit me like a glove! It was £38, but I had a 20% off code for being an ASOS Premier customer so it ended up being under £30! A far cry from my VB dream. But a lot more purse friendly.

After being in the photo studio about three hours I finally got a good photo! Excuse the crap quality but it's just a quick photo I took on my iPhone of the computer screen.

And I couldn't have done it without these two angels! My parents have been there for me through absolutely everything. They supported me when I dropped out of uni after one month and helped me reapply, they help fund my ridiculous shopping addiction, they taught me manners and respect, they always put me and my brothers first, the list is endless and I can only hope when I eventually have children that I manage to bring them up even half as well as they have to us! I won't get all deep and emotional on my blog but I owe these two people the entire world and I wouldn't be who I am today without them. Oh my god I am actually welling up as I am typing this but it's been an eventful day and I just feel so accomplished and blessed right now!

Then to top it off they bought me this diamond of a graduation present! The new rose gold GHD set… It's so beautiful I don't even want to use it, I feel like I need to frame it or something!

And of course Ryan swung by for a picture with Lucius Malfoy! (AKA Me.)

..Now to take on the real world!
