Flash Paradise

Last Thursday I headed up the Northern Line to Brent Crossing Shopping Centre to check out the Flash Paradise event hosted by Lucy, Carrie and their university peers. The evening consisted of a fashionable raffle, tropical cocktails, colourful cupcakes and nail painting with all the money raised going to Japan. I got to hang out with Jazmine, Amy, Sherin, Susie, Lizzy and Kat plus briefly meeting Fiona, Lexie and Charlie which was all very lovely. We were meant to dress in something tropical but after a busy day I couldn't really be bothered with that. I did wear orange lipstick though =)

Amazing Aztec nails

I had my nails painted in this wonderful Aztec design which I adore. I know I could never do a design that intricate myself so it was really nice having it done by someone else. I've never actually had a manicure so now I really want to get my nails looked after more often. In the raffle I won a kick ass pair of green trousers from Zara plus we were given a pretty cute goodie bag with the Flash Paradise log on it!

    I'm in love with the top you're wearing, reminds me of the Christopher Kane printed t-shirts that were around a while ago.
    The event looked like so much fun too!
