Questioning Buddha's Birthday

Call me cursed
Or just call me blessed
If you can't handle my worst
You ain't getting my best
A few people have been asking similar questions about the formal so I thought I'll answer them all in this post.

Where did I get my dress from?
I bought in Melbourne in a store called Vivid. It was reasonably priced compared to some of the other girl's dresses. Accessories including my silver necklace, cuff and earrings were all purchased from Lovisa and my belt was bought from Forever New.

Where did I get my hair and make up done?
I got my hair done in a hairdresser at Market Square. I showed them a photo of how I wanted to get it done and they did a great job at replicating it. Shame the humid, gloomy weather and rain ended up making my hair all frizzy ):

Before (left) and After (right) getting make up done.
For my make up, I got it done at Napolean Perdis at Indooroopilly. A few others from my school also got it done there at the same time which was nice to see. Steph did an amazing job with my make up. Initially I showed her a photo and she put in her suggestions and taa-daa, she made me look presentable! She also gave me advice on different techniques I could use to apply make up for skin and face type. I told her my dress was pale purple x champagne kind of colour so she added a bit of purple to it. I just had a smoky eye look. It took about 40 or so minutes which was alright since she also had to help customers and whatnot.

Products I redeemed (:

Nails (I painted them myself ^_^ ) 

What did I do at the Pre? Phee and her family did a brilliant job at organising and hosting the pre. Chenny had a soccer match at Toowoomba so before he came, I just chilled around dateless, but it was all good because others still hadn't arrived and I was with friends. Basically, we/parents/photographers/relatives took heaps of photos and there were food and drinks served by the caterers.

Spiffy looking Chenny

Left at around 6.15pm and headed to the Pre-drinks where teachers and parents were invited and able to mingle, socialise and take more photographs. The formal was held at the Convention Centre and at 7pm, parents and teachers (only selected teachers were allowed in the actual formal) had to leave. Formal pretty much consisted of dinner, dessert, dancing, socialising and taking photos.

Professional photos!
Eliot taking the spotlight there...


After the post, most people went over to someone's house to get ready for the post. We went back to Bridie's and just let the good times roll................

Corsage and pinhole? Chenny did a wonderful job at organsing both the corsage and pinhole (he insisted). Usually the guy buys the corsage for the girl and the girl buys the corsage for the guy. He put the corsage on me and Phee's dad was going to show us how to put the pinhole on Chenny's suit thing so he ended up placing it on.

I hope that answered a few of your questions ^_^

Well today, we went on a Chinese excursion to Buddha's Birthday/Festival held at Southbank. Only the year twelve Chinese (ten of us) and the year eight students who are currently studying Chinese this semester were able to go. There were activities and events held for school students and this excursion is probably the best one I've been on. Biology and ITS excursions have nothing on this one. It was from periods three to six which meant I got to miss out on Chinese, QCS, ITS and English :D :D

CHANTAL; my other prefect! Trolol at Mr Huppert in the background.
YUKO; my first ever proper photo with her :') Truly an achievement
Would have been such a lovely photo if .......... >.>
