The musings of a final year medical student

Monday, 1 February 2016


On Saturday I went with Rob to the annual medics' ball! We went with our other lovely medic friends and we all had a fabulous time. 

For the ball I chose a figure-hugging, red strapless dress from ASOS and paired it with red strappy heels from M&S in the sale!

I was debating fake tanning but decided not to, I feel like I am becoming more comfortable with my pale skin and in fact I think it was nice against the vibrant red dress. For makeup I used my normal products but changed my lipstick to Maybelline's Color Sensational Matte lipstick in Fatal Red and a red L'Oréal lip liner. It was really comfortable to wear but did require regular touch ups. I put my hair in heated rollers and felt like a proper Scouser. 

The real challenge was finding a good strapless bra. I did try a Primark one but it was crap, so I went and got a Wonderbra. They are expensive but oh my god it did such an amazing job! It gave me a lovely cleavage and I didn't have to pull it up once throughout the whole night despite lots of crazy dancing. 

To accessorise I wore a black Primark bag and black nail polish. 

Overall it was a fantastic night, it was so lovely to go out and forget all about work and deadlines and just have fun.

  1. It looks like you had the greatest time! We have a similar 'med ball' function here, but it's not until halfway through the year!
    That red dress looked absolutely gorgeous on you, the colour suits you so well! Also I think I might have to invest in one of those Wonderbra's-they sound like just the thing I need haha!
