Cancer Research Charity Ball

The charity dinner I have been talking about for some time finally came round on Saturday and it was just as good as I expected. After weeks of trying to find 'the perfect dress' I opted for a plain black jersey maxi dress from Topshop which fitted beautifully, and was just long enough to cover my shoes. I curled my hair using a curly iron, and clipped it half way up leaving my fringe down to give some shape around my face. I wanted to keep my jewellery minimal so I wore Vivienne Westwood earrings Karl bought me last Christmas, 2 silver bracelets from H&M and a black cuff given to me by my friend Jo. Karl and I hardly get the chance to dress up so making a real effort for one night was so nice. I felt pretty and ladylike for once! 

The venue was stunning and set at a Manor House in the Sussex countryside and decorated similar to a wedding. The ball raised a lot of money for Cancer Research (a charity extremely close to my heart having several family members being diagnosed with cancer) and on top of this I also won a prize in the raffle! I picked some skincare products that I will show you on here soon. We were greeted with canap├ęs and pink champagne whilst being serenaded by a Frank Sinatra Tribute. After a main course of chicken and a dessert of sticky toffee pudding we made our way to the dance floor and danced the night away with champagne. It was a fantastic night and I wish I had more chances to dress up! More photos of inside the venue can be found on my Instagram (@tanyaprendergast)
