A|Wear Student Lock-In

Tonight I went to the Student Lock-In at A|wear. I had a really good time!

Even though I can't walk yet, that didn't stop me. I had my mum hire out a wheelchair just for the occasion. My best friend Danielle was really good and pushed me around!

This is the stamp I had to show my VIP status :P

Because I was one of the first people to sign up as a guest I got on the VIP list, which entitled me to a goody bag including cosmetics such as make-up and fake tan - for free!

I got:
A GOSH make-up bag, a little purse with a ladybird on, two flavoured lipbalms from Cupcake (strawberry and caramel), a mini pot of Nivea Creme, a funky pen, and Solait 'wash-off' fake tan for face and body.

Not bad for freebies are they?

Now I'm not going to lie, A|Wear has never exactly been my first choice for clothes but I was still very keen to go along to this event, not least because it sounded so much fun! Today, I was on a hunt for accessories.

So of course I took advantage of the offer (30% off!) and bought various pieces of jewellry for the summer.

First of all, I bought a pendant necklace with other little trinkets. It hangs really nicely :)

...some shiny black stud earrings. These are great for work. I'm always losing earrings!

...some fabulous red sunglasses

...and a long silvery necklace, with white and clear beads all the way round.

All this cost me just over £18!

I'm so glad I went tonight, despite the calamity of taking a wheelchair to such a busy place. It was definitely worth it, and I'm sure to enjoy it even more next year when I can walk again!

Much love,
