...... which I am very thankful and appreciative off... obv :)
This is probably old news to all those that follow me on Twitter already, but yes, I have at last officially graduated with a BSc Hons! A huge thank you to everyone that left me lovely, uplifting comments and messages on both Twitter/Facebook as I was a literal big bag of nerves. The Graduation Ceremony itself was held on Thursday 17/11/2011 at 7pm but since we arrived at our destination (Tom Tom style) at 3pm for the robe collection and professional studio photographs, I was made to roam around St Albans (Herts) in my gown for the rest of the afternoon/evening being stalked by Hertfordshire paparazzi and local shoppers. Overall, a surreal day where lots of hugs, kisses, farewells, best wishes and pictures were exchanged, marking a remarkable end to my Uni era and my journey from an undergraduate - graduand - graduate.
Now onto some pictures, OOTD/FOTD that kinda thing......

I will, fingers crossed, write a whole new ‘House of flies’ blogpost in the near future on the jewellery that I wore to my Grad Ceremony, so watch out for that one coming very soon!
A few days before my Graduation I popped into a Selfridges branch where I effectively bathed myself in Jimmy Choo Eau de parfum (the fruity basenotes are superb). So post-Graduation when I received some Grad money from my darling mum and dad, I bought myself the Jimmy Choo 60ml EDP gift set as a Graduation treat which since that point has slowly interchanged my signature Elizabeth Arden's Red Door.
Phew, could not help reminiscing throughout writing this one :) until next time, turrah.
