ball

Here are the pictures of our ball.  Finally I’ve found the time to write about it and put some pictures up.  It’s been several weeks since the ball, but we had such a lovely time and I fully intend to do it again!

We spent most of the afternoon setting up.  We put up tables, hung fairy lights from some white spray-painted branches and strung tissue paper pom poms from the ceiling.  Then the boys set up some nice lighting.  We all went home to pretty ourselves up and then came back to the hall ready for some awesome dancing!  We had a blast!  For about 6 months now, we’ve been having ballroom dancing lessons, so we danced the waltz, foxtrot, rock ‘n roll, cha cha, rumba and some group dances.  Everybody had a lovely time and it truly was a success.

My dress was bought off Trademe for $80.  Such a good place to buys ball dresses – my last ball dress was bought off Trademe as well.  My shoes are located here and honestly are THE BOMB (are lot more sparkly than the picture)!  Enjoy the photos 🙂  Oh and here’s the link to that short film I acted in a while back – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5ckn-W1UNU.  Please comment, we love feedback! 🙂

ball 6

Because I was doing a large part of the running of the ball, with my brother, Jacob, I wasn’t able to have many photos taken and those that were taken exhibited a rather ‘unphotogenic’ Esther.  But anyway, we had fun.

New plans for Creative Touch on the horizon…Bless you all!

trademe_logoTrademe is also another great place to shop.  This online store is equivalent to Ebay for America or Australia and sells new or second-hand items from socks to sandwiches!  I have bought a couple of neat pieces of clothes from there, as has my sister.  Over the years, a good family friend has bought some lovely branded clothes for me off Trademe, including skirts, blazers, coats, handbags, and a ball dress.  Good quality, branded clothing from Cue, Max etc. can be found on Trademe with barely any wear and tear, for an amazing price!

Again, there are the ever-present risks of buying online, and in this case, you cannot return the goods, however, sizes are given, pictures are shown and a few paragraphs on the details of the item are written.  Below are a few clothing items that I have received (bought or gifted from others) from Trademe, including this beautiful ballgown.  All I had to do was sew some tulle on the bottom to make it longer, grow into it 😉 and voilla!  It fit beautifully 🙂

(This blazer was bought off Tradme for about $16!)

(This cream coat was given to my sister and I and finishes just above the knee.  It is very cute and I love the collar detailing.  Very smart, good evening wear.)

(This simple black blazer has been very useful.  I’ve worn it as a part of a costume for a drama I was in as well as wearing it to church and etc.)

(This white blazer was also bought from Trademe and in my opinion looks lovely with a bright pop of colour.)

Ok, so those are a few items that have been bought off Trademe.  Because most of the blazers were given to me, I’m not really sure of their price, but want to say something like $20 – $30?  Which is a very good price for a good quality, branded blazer which will last you a long time.

Trademe is a great site to buy other products off too.  I have my eyes on some red nail polish for the season.  It’s OPI and get this – it’s only $14!!!  Ridiculously cheap!

Merry Christmas to you all!  I’ll be bringing you a Christmas outfit post tomorrow and then hopefully some bits and pieces following that.

Blessings,

Esther
