Grad Ball

Grad Ball Southampton SUSU graduation 2015

Hey Everyone! Uni has finally finished and I'm back home now for good! I can't believe how quickly Uni went, 3 years went by in a flash! Last Monday I went to our Graduation Ball. I originally wasn't going to go as it was £50 to go to Oceana.. which is a rip off but a few days before I thought I might as well as it only happens once :)

I then spent the day trawling through asos until I found this pretty dress, I felt like a princess in it! And it was in petite so I thought hell yeah why not! I wore it with my black platform sandals from New Look, which wouldn't have been my first choice but they're the comfiest heels I own and I wanted to last all night (which I did wahooo!) and I'm just too short so added height is a must XD

Before Oceana we headed to our friends with pre-drinks, it's so sad to think that we're all heading off in separate directions! The actual event was from 8pm-4am which is soo long and so early :') but we couldn't get cabs until around 10:30 :) They had a little fairground in the car park with a ghost train, a fast spinning wheel thing and bumper cars as well as some food stalls then inside were two photo booths, a formal one and a messing around one. It was quite cool that they'd print out a photo right away, but it was sort of annoying that you'd only get 1 photo even if there were more of you, and then online they put the poorest quality version and you have to buy the proper one, but nevermind :')

There were different acts going on in different rooms, we were on the rides so missed Katy B, but we saw Labyrinth and Basshunter which was quite cool :) All in all I had a good night, we did loads of dancing and stayed till around 3:30am but it did have quite a school disco feel to it. Drinks were so expensive for Southampton, apparantly they lowered the prices for us but it was £3 a single and £4.50 a double.. I went to Oceana the previous Wednesday and paid £3 for a double but oh wells :') 
It was fun but not worth £50 :') I think a lot of people complained as Southampton's grad ball sounded rubbish compared to other uni's and they were cheaper, and there were no meals, or food or drink included :) But it was nice to spend time with my friends so I'm glad I went! :)
