I went to Paris this weekend for a small getaway with two of my friends Michelle and Cheri. We were being very silly and awesome in Paris, taking lots of beautiful and fashionable pictures. I've also visited Laduree, the macaroon store and had their fantastic hot chocolate. It's lovely, the best hot chocolate I've ever tasted! It's sort of like melted chocolate instead of a drink- gooey, hot, sticky, thick and perfectly chocolatesque.
I'm now quite sad as I'm back in the UK now and it's terribly dreary…. Help me! I need more hot chocolate to keep me going… :( Do tell me what you think of my photos!

Have you ever been to any balls? Any good recommendations? I'd like to feature some dresses from random shops I found today - because one day, we're all going to inevitably walk attend a formal event someday with an amazing dress on! I've been a very big eBay addict lately, maybe because of the stress of university… seriously, girls, I shop as my stress-relief! Is that normal or not? I've been very obsessed with buying formal dresses lately. For real, I have been buying like 1 every week by my frequent and slightly OCD bidding. I've managed to snag some very cheap bargains too! And I've started selling some of my old dresses on ebay just so that I can get rid of them and earn a bit from it, even if the original dress is brand new or worn once, and still very wearable. You never want to wear the same dress twice! Speaking of which, if I had to pick, I'd definitely pick some of the dresses below for the balls.
Most online shops have prom dresses or special occasion dresses, so I'd recommend checking out some online catalogues if you ever need a dress, full stop. I've been into blue recently, what do you think?
It's yet another cold and grey day, so I'm going to spice things up by doing a mini-review of something I got recently. I'm really excited to be reviewing the 4Vision Classe Brown lens from www.klenspop.com today! They're a really great shop that sells an amazing range of circle lens. I'm actually a regular customer of theirs because their lenses really made me look fabulous during balls or special events, where I like to wear circle lens to make my eyes bigger.
Lens Info Brand: 4VISION Diameter: 14.5mm Graphic Diameter: 13.5mm Water Content: 38% Base Curve: 8.6mm Life Span: 1 year disposal Country of origin: South Korea Onto the review… The best thing about these lenses are that they're really comfortable. I mean, they're really comfortable to wear for over 7-8 hours. I know you shouldn't wear lenses for that long, but they're absolutely great for the first 6-7 hours. I looked fantastic at my photo session when I wore them to a photo-shoot in my friend's house. They said that my eyes looked good! Also the colour means that it's really natural and no one noticed I was wearing lenses, though EVERYONE said I looked better. Kudos to the power of makeup and lenses! There isn't anything negative I can say about these lenses. Seriously, I've been resorting to wearing brown lenses because they look the most natural. And these lenses are not too large at 13.5 mm but big enough to make any small eyes look bigger without photoshop! Guys, do check out their shop! Each pair of lenses comes with a really pretty box and a pair of tweezers and lens case. I highly recommend them, honestly.
It's been absolutely freezing in the last couple of days, so much that I've stopped going out. I don't know what it is about my second year of university, but I've been more withdrawn, less social and more… well… hermit-like. It's okay in a way, but I miss the parties and the late nights. It's also (hopefully) going to snow tomorrow according to the weather forecast. I doubt it though, last week they forecasted snow but it only went on for about 3 minutes, then it was over and the blue skies came out. Here's some pictures that I took a few days ago with my friend, who did a photo-shoot for me. He's such an amazing photographer!
I really need to get cracking on work. I've got around 10 pieces of coursework and essays due this term, and it's already nearly the second week of term. Oh gosh! Please leave a comment telling me what you think of these photos- the concept was a "dream". Meanwhile, here's my:
