So, I graduated this year! This is me in all my finery. Not really, I look a mess. It was lovely seeing my friends and family, but at the same time your graduation is technically not 'your' day. It's for your parents. But I made them proud and they enjoyed it (hopefully!!). I ended up with a 2:1. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. 

On the day, I wore some navy gowns and was completely naked underneath. That would have given my lecturers something to look at. No, obviously I wore this outfit. I wore a vintage (its actually old M&S) cream midi skirt I won off of Ebay and a black lace top. I do love lace at the moment. I then wore some small courts so I could walk around all day, and a wonderful hat, and sash. A slick of red lipstick never fails so that went on too. 

The ceremony was held in the Anglican cathedral in Liverpool, and whilst it was lovely in there and provided great photos outside, I couldn't hear anything or see anything where I was sat. But my mum bought the DVD and you'll be happy to know I look as frightful on stage as I do in these photos!

Here is me and my parentals, now you know where I inherit my good looks, and awkward poses from.
Again everyone in the class looked lovely! As you can see below. And I had some serious shoe envy going on as everyone wore lovely shoes. I don't know how they stayed in them all day but they did. Now everyone is working hard in their new jobs, or setting up new companies, I'm really happy for them! You go MPS '11! Woop woop.
