One Tequila, Two Tequila...

Yesterday was my boyfriend's 21st birthday so we all went for a spot of lunch in the day time and then went out in the evening and danced our socks off. I bought him some snazzy new footwear, and of course made a cake.

It was the Grand National at Aintree Racecourse this weekend and yesterday was 'Ladies Day' so town was PACKED with very orange 'ladies' (one of them tried to attack one of my friends with her shoe) staggering around in mostly terrible dresses and hats.
My favourite pictures from the night where these pre and post tequila ones! Podium fun!

To escape the ladies day crowds, we headed to a big more 'alternative' if you like, club called the Krazyhouse (I think it's the type of place you should stop going after first year of uni but it's a good laugh anyway). They sell Sex on the Beach flavoured slush puppie type drinks which are AMAZING. The £3 blazer took another trip out because the Miss Selfridge dress I have on has no sleeves. You can't really see it from these pics but it has really cute ruffles down the front of it. I can't wait to get my new camera so you can actually see detail on photos. The shoes are a pair from Primark which are now completely ruined and the dotty hair bow is from a charity shop.

More exciting than all of this, I got my first award from the super stylish Style Porn which excited me so much so thank youuuu!! I shall do as I'm told and treasure it! :D

Some lovely blogs which take up a lot of my time and deserve this are She's Dressing up, Niviarsiaq, Leopard Print & Lace, and Stitched - thank you to them for providing me with something lovely to read!

I also had a little flutter on the Grand National today and won a tenner on 'Comply or Die' I also bet on 'Rambling Minster' who was one of the favourites but didn't do very well. The odds for the winner were 100-1 - imagine chancing a quid on it! One hundred pounds, thankyou very much! We went to the book makers with my nan - I pointed out that it was lovely of her to take her grand daughters for a day out gambling. And I've decided I'm actually quite good at picking horses.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends as much as I am!

P.S. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts on glasses! I did enjoy reading all of them! :)

  4. Fun photos! Very cool sneakers! To answer your question, Media Law is awesome! So far, I've learned about libel cases, privacy cases, and copyrights cases. There are so many interesting cases! I never get bored in the case even though there are like 110 people in my class. I sit up front so I get a great feel for the class.

  11. Ahh, you're so welcome! You were one of the first bloggers I thought of when I received the award myself. And I'm so jealous you went to the races! I've ridden horses since I was 6 years old and I've still never been to a race! I figure horses + dressing up has got to equal a good time. What's not to like?
