That Belfast Girl Graduates.... AGAIN!

 
This week marked the end of what has been a very long year. I have referred to my post graduate studies in the odd post and on Thursday night, we had our ceremony. I spent another year at Queen's University doing my Post Graduate Certificate in Education so essentially for the past year I have been teaching the children of Belfast! I obviously didn't want to write this on my blog for safety reasons but now it is over, I'm happy to share. I always wanted to be a teacher- it was always my childhood ambition. I feel like my PGCE taught me so much about myself and I now value my own life as well as the amazing education I received so much more. Teaching is not an easy job but I wouldn't change the past year for anything. I'm now going on to do a Master's in a different field but I'm really excited for yet another challenge! I know I will be in my 60s and still taking college courses- I love to learn!

I thought I'd share my outfit from my graduation. We didn't wear gowns as it is not a full degree so instead a chose a simple but chic outfit. My jumpsuit was £5 in the TK Maxx sale. It is by the brand Amphora which seems to do many great basic pieces. I have been loving TK Maxx after many years of learning how to actually look for the bargains! My blazer was £23 in the Marks and Spencer sale. It's an off white colour and I know I'll get lots of wear out of it- the collarless shape looks much better on me as I am a bit busty. My bag is my favourite little one from H&M and my shoes are from Heaton's. I did quite glam makeup using Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, Michael Kors Bronzer in Flush, Ardell Demi-Wispie lashes, the Comfort Zone palette from Wet n Wild on my eyes and a soon to be released NYC Lip Lacquer in 300 Madison Square Mauve mixed with a little bit of Asia Lipstick by Rimmel. (they are released on the 14th Sept- full post coming soon on how fab they are!).

I hope you all had an amazing week and great weekend.
