Monday saw the deal sealed – yep, I am officially a graduate of Liverpool JMU and the proud owner of a journalism degree. It was quite an emotional moment as the honorary fellows of my university called out my name and I nervously padded across the stage to shake hands, smile and unload the butterflies that had been swarming in my stomach.
For the momentous occasion I opted for an appropriate dress, wacky and loud – my kind of thing but more importantly fitting to my degree as the print (excuse the pun) was newspaper articles. I have had a few people ask me on Instagram where it was from. It is handmade by a designer from my home town who I featured on my blog last year – The brand ‘Witchie Stitchie’ design and make unique pieces for a one of a kind look. I certainly recommend checking them out if you like experimental fashion.
My make-up was kept fairly simple using ‘Studio Fix fluid’ from Mac as a base paired with the Elizabeth Arden bronzer to sculpt my cheek bones. ‘Soft and Gentle’ was the highlighter of choice to compliment my eyes which were kept simple with a light dusting of ‘Metallic Khaki’ eyeshadow from L’Oreal and lashings of the Maybelline ‘Lash Stiletto’ mascara. To compliment the red in my dress I wore ‘Ruby Woo’ by Mac on my lips – the matte formula stayed put all day long between sips of champagne.
