As this is my first year working in a corporate company, I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed by the sheer number of parties! Christmas is always a crazy busy time for parties, dinners and going out with friends, but this year with the extra work parties, I’m finding it totally crazy! In the last four days I have been out for three dinners and a brunch. Feeling pretty tired now! But when you’re having so much fun it’s hard to say no!
About a week or so ago, I had my big work party which was a Black & White Ball. I really didn’t want to wear a full length dress, so I decided to wear a midi dress. This simple white dress was exactly what I wanted. Missguided have it in a few other colours and I will definitely be getting them too. Gold heels and jewellery with my camel coat completed the look and I added some red lipstick to make it more Christmassy. I will admit, I took this photo below at 5.30 am when I got home! I was too rushed leaving for the party so I didn’t get the chance before. Thank god my dress was ok at the end of the night, otherwise there would have been no photo!
Heels: Zara (Similar)
Bracelets: River Island
Ear Cuff (that you can’t see!): Topshop
Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo
I had a bit of a disaster with the hairdressers. I was in a rush and my hair appointment got delayed. What can you do, these things happen. My hairdresser was so lovely and we got on really well. However, by the time I got home to change an hour later, my curly blow dry was flat and lifeless and looked like I hadn’t even had my hair done! I was pretty frustrated and annoyed as I was already late. I quickly curled my hair, threw on my clothes and make up and off I went. I hate rushing to get ready for parties, but once I arrived and saw the beautiful venue and my friends, I forgot all about it.
It was a really excellent night, everyone looked amazing too! Sorry I don’t have more photos for you guys, I’m trying to not be on my phone as much on nights out because then I don’t feel that I’m in the moment. Not ideal for a blogger to not be taking photos, but I enjoy my nights more and get to focus on my friends and that’s what it’s about!
Have you had any amazing Christmas parties recently?
