Following on from my graduation day post (if you would like to read that the link is here). The graduation ball’s theme was Las Vegas. It was voted that by the students – so the dress code was glamorous. I bought a beautiful nude dress from River Island which was covered in lots of hand sewn pearls and beads. It is the most gorgeous dress I have ever worn in my entire life! It was super heavy! I got ready with my mom – I did my make up simple – contoured, foundation, blush, smokey eye with lashes and bright pink VIVA GLAM MAC lipstick.
I went to my best friend’s house for ‘pre-drinks’. There have been a group of us at uni from my university halls that have gone out with each other on many nights out over the years – we have had some amazing times. We had a few drinks then walked to the union which was about 5-10 minutes away.
The student’s union was completely transformed! The iconic fountain outside was lit up with beautiful colours. Inside there was a place where you had your photos taken, a chocolate fountain, a casino room, a stage where an Elvis impersonated was doing his thing, women on stilts wearing red feathers, an acoustic set and a concert room for the main acts. Outside there was a silent disco, a pink Cadillac car, a fake wedding chapel, roller coasters and a fire works display. The Pigeon Detectives and Professor Green performed which was amazing!
The night was incredible! Freshers ball in first year and graduation ball in my final year were definitely the best nights out in my life! I had an amazing night with all my friends and danced until my feet killed!
