What I wore for hen-do hijinks...

Last weekend it was my best friends's hen do and I was very excited! I had never been to one before and needed a pretty dress to see me through the day time activities. I was really having trouble tracking one down but the lovely Life Wardrobe directed me to ASDA where I found the most perfect dress, which also had an extra 20% off- winner! Apologies for the slightly grey photos too, they were hastily taken in the rain but luckily the weather did cheer up in the end. I love the floral print and the fact that it is sleeveless makes it ideal for any kind of spring or summer activities. I didn't realise that this entire outfit was from ASDA until I started writing this post- clearly I have a bit of a thing for supermarket bargains! The hen itself was a lot of fun and I was keen to get stuck into the party games (luckily my team won the treasure hunt- YES!) My friends and I found this website very useful for the more inappropriate gifts, well worth a look if you are heading to a stag or hen do any time soon!

Dress: George at ASDA, shoes: George at ASDA
 I think this photo shows off just how excited I was, look at that cheesy grin! I treated myself to a couple of Mac lipsticks from Debenhams on World Lipstick Day when they had £5 off and I am loving them so far. This is Lady Bug and is a really nice day time red  for pale skin which I have been wearing a lot recently- you will definitely be seeing more of this one on the blog! I wasn't sure what to do with my hair here as it desperately needed cutting but I found this fake plait from Primark when I was packing which jazzed it up nicely. You would never know it was fake, the colour matches perfectly!


Essie 'Aperitif' is the perfect red nail varnish and has further cemented my love for the brand. I was tempted by Fishnet Stockings but actually the lighter red is a bit more wearable! I don't tend to wear any bracelets other than my MedicAlert but this delicate heart bangle from ASOS caught my eye when I was looking for presents for the hen (ahem) and it is so pretty! I am looking weirdly tanned in these photos which is most unlike me, I am normally pasty pale and interesting so this is a nice change, long may it last... 


Have you been to many hen- dos? What did you wear?

This dress is so pretty! I've got my first hen do in a few weeks, but it's a picnic in the park so definitely shorts and a tee for me!

I'm not really a fan of the binge-drinking culture which I always (probably wrongly) associate with hen dos, so I haven't really been on a lot of hen dos. I try to avoid them.
