A Midsummer Night's Dream Ball

On Thursday myself and my best friends and fellow English Literature students attended a Midsummer Night's Dream themed ball to celebrate the end of the university year (only a few weeks left of being a first year, help!!). It was honestly so much fun, we got to dress up like princesses and eat a three course meal and then dance the night away to many a cheesy tune.

Jess, Bethan, Rosie (who sadly couldn't make it to the actual ball) and myself all got ready in my flat, we pinned flowers in each others hair, danced to Taylor Swift and ate our weight in fig biscuits and lemon cake whilst washing it all down with copious amounts of tea. If you ask me, it was a much better way to get ready for going out than "pre-drinks" and we sure did have an awful lot of fun. It made me even more excited to be living with those beautiful ladies come September. We also couldn't resist a few photos before we left too!

 ..and finally a serious one:

When we arrived at the venue, we were all pretty thrilled at receiving a free drink and getting to recline on wonderfully marshmallow-like sofas whilst listening to a harpist play for us all. We then got to our tables and were even more thrilled to find small paper bags of sweets for each of us, plus a page from A Midsummer Night's Dream and most exciting of all, bubble-blowers (!!). 

So with all this excitement, lovely though slightly delayed food.. (we only finished eating at past 10pm) followed by dancing to questionable, highly cringeworthy yet thoroughly enjoyable music, we decided to call it a night. And a wonderful night it was too!

All my love,
