Weekend Dressed Up

The weekend just gone I was planning a relaxing weekend watching my box set of Friends and chilling out.

Well it lasted until Friday morning when my parents invited me out for dinner that evening and my boyfriend sent me an email to tell me we were going to a Ball on Saturday night.

I could dress for dinner, a Ball on the other hand not so much.

Friday night we headed out to Finbarrs in Durham. It is without a doubt one of my favourite places to eat in the North East. The food is delicious and the staff are all exceptionally friendly.

I wore my trusty Zara dress that I bought about a year ago. It's my safety dress perfect for going out for dinner as it is so floaty. 
M&S coat,
M&S shoes,
Mullberry bag,
Primark super cosy tights.  

I had cod for dinner and a knickerbocker glory for pudding. Food was extremely good.

Onto Saturday night.

I didn't have long to find a dress. I ordered 3 from ASOS on Friday afternoon and they arrived on Saturday afternoon and they were a bit of a let down to be honest.

My Mam's next door neighbour popped over to Mam's house and I explained to her my dress drama I had going on and she said that she had a ball gown I could borrow if I wanted.

I did. I loved it. I felt like a princess.

I had my hair done at the new hair salon in Framwellgate Moor in Durham called Mirror Mirror and I felt so glamorous.

The Ball was at the Hilton in Gateshead and was for Children's Charity in the North East.

I won the silent auction for golf for 2 and an overnights stay with breakfast at Rockcliffe hall.  Which I was over the moon with!

There were Gymnasts there too that were fantastic!!
We had a fantastic night and didn't get home till 5am. Which of course meant on Sunday I only left my sofa to go to the bath and then head to bed. So it was a pretty good weekend! Hope you had a good weekend too.
