Face and Outfit of the Night / Sports Ball

Some close ups of my face, and me with some of my tennis girlies

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love getting all dressed up, doing something special with my hair and going out with my friends. On Monday, it was my university's Sports Ball; a black tie event where the sporting achievements from this year are recognised and celebrated. We got all glammed up and took a coach to the Coventry Ricoh Arena. With champagne on arrival, we knew that the evening would be posh. We had a chance to take photos with each other, find our way to the bar, and generally be sociable, before we were ushered to our tables. Once we were all sat down, the Sports Coordinators were introduced and the itinerary for the evening was announced. Our starter was a cream of vegetable soup with bread rolls (lovely if you actually like soup), followed by a main of breaded chicken with mozzarella, a variety of veggies and a lovely tomatoey sauce. The first lot of awards and thank yous were then announced. Dessert was brought out *hurrah* and it was a warm chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream, which was absolutely delicious! Once we had all finished, the final lot of awards were given out and we were all feeling nostalgic as we realised that this year has come to an end; which for some means the end of uni altogether! A dj then came out and we danced, socialised and photographed until the coaches arrived to take us home.

It was a very lovely evening and it was nice to be able to catch up with my tennis friends as we've been busy with exams recently. I've made some great friends this year and the ones who are leaving, I will never forget them as they've made such an impact on my life. 

The makeup that I wore on that evening was:

♥ Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
♥ Maybelline Fit Me Concealer "20"
♥ Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation "200, Soft Beige"
♥ Seventeen Pressed Powder "Delicate Beige"
♥ Sleek Face Contour Kit "Medium"
♥ Helen E Cosmetics Shimmer Eye Powder "13"
♥ MICAbella Cosmetics Shimmer Powder "53, Deep Secrets"
♥ MaxFactor Kohl Pencil "Black"
♥ Maybelline the Rocket Volum' Express Mascara "Black"
♥ Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara "Black"
♥ Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Matte "2, Pink Pout"

My dress, clutch bag and shoes are from New Look, I can't remember where I got my earrings from, I think they might have been a present from someone. I did my hair by twisting it and taking bits in over the front, then brought it over to the other side and plaited it. Let me know if you want me to do a blog post on how to do this hairstyle and I will attempt to! I hope your week is going well.

Until next time, live, laugh and love and enjoy all the little things in life
