Off To The Ball

Hi everyone ! Last week was super busy, it was week filled with deadlines, my last being due in at 1 pm Thursday afternoon. Even though it was a stressful week I had something fabulous to look forward to, the Tri Faculty Ball !! I've been so excited about the ball for weeks. The Tri Faculty Ball is essentially a ball for students within three faculties of the university (Engineering and Science department,Arts, Humanities & Social Studies, and Education & Health Sciences).

Once I finished my assignment on Thursday afternoon I rushed home and started getting ready for the ball. I bought the dress in Pamela Scott about two weeks prior. There was a massive sale on and I managed to get this beautiful dress for only €25 !! I couldn't believe my luck. I love the dress so much, it's such an unusual colour, kind of a pinky purply red. I love the mesh detail in the sides of the waist and also how the neckline/ chest area is open but in a classy elegant way.

I had tried out a few makeup looks to go with the dress and decided on a pinky/fushia smokey eye, using my new 144 makeup revolution palette (which I am obsessed with). I used the NYX 561 Violet  Ray on my lips, the colour was absolutely perfect! The rest of my face I kept very simple, I didn't want any crazy blush or contouring to make it look too busy ! I used my new Isadora nail polish and top coat for my nails. The colour was just perfect and I've done a whole post about how much I love this nail polish HERE.

So after I was all dolled up, myself and James headed into one of our friends house for some pics and pre drinks. Around half six we all got taxis to the Strand Hotel where the ball was taking place. I'd never been to the Strand before but it's such a lovely little hotel. We headed inside and got some tables and waited for our three course meal.

For starters we had soup, dinner was turkey and ham and dessert was apple crumble and ice-cream ! The food was delicious ! After the food, the band came out and we spent the rest of the night dancing, taking silly pics and making great memories !

It was such a great night and I had an amazing time. I can't wait for more college balls in the future ! Have you been to any balls recently or have any really great memories from any balls ? Let me know in the comments !
