Hey guys!

Long time no post! I've had so much going on recently - from moving jobs, moving apartments and finally graduating from university with a First Class Honours degree (!), BUT, I had to take the time to tell you all about the INCREDIBLE experience I had on the 15th June, when the lovely team at Debenhams treated myself and many other bloggers to a VIP experience at Beyoncé and Jay-Z's OTR II show in London.

It was one of the highlights of my blogging career thus far and definitely the best concert I have ever been to, I'm still totally amazed that starting this blog all those years ago has led to me being able to have these experiences. It was definitely a pinch me moment, and you can see all the highlights below!

Dress - Miss Selfridge (via Debenhams)*
Boots - Steve Madden (via Debenhams and 50% off!)*
Shirt - Goodwill
Necklace - Forever21

The theme for the night was Debenham's collection of little black dresses. I picked out this bodycon Posh Spice number by Miss Selfridge (only £10!) and paired it with a light satin shirt from Goodwill, just to use as a cover up in case it got chilly in the open air stadium.
I knew from the offset I wanted some over the knee boots to pair my dress with (got to bring that Beyoncé sass!) and found this STUNNING Steve Madden pair half price in the sale! I got compliments on them all night - they're real suede, just the right heel height to be comfy AND have a tie at the back which means they aren't constantly falling down your leg. You can really feel the quality in these boots - I've got a couple of cheaper pairs and I just can't wear them anymore as they're stretched and fall down easily. These are perfect and definitely worth the extra investment!

I felt like a million bucks in this outfit and am so excited to wear it again!

Here's a pic of all of us in our Debenhams LBDs! The girls were all lovely and I really enjoyed getting to know them all.

The show was incredible, I was just in awe of Beyoncé the entire time. They performed a collection of their best songs, from 00s throwbacks to Lemonade and 4:44. We were dancing and singing along the whole time, they didn't once stop performing or leave us waiting. I wish I could watch it again and again and again.

One of the major highlights for me was receiving this photo book at the end of the evening. I had commented that I wanted to try and find one when the concert was over, because the visuals in the show were so beautiful. Little did I know, they had copies waiting for us in the lounge to take home. I now need to buy a coffee table just to display this on! The photography is so stunning and I will definitely be treasuring this momento forever.

Thank you so much to the lovely Debenhams team! You really made my night special and gave me an experience I will never forget!

What's the best concert you've ever been to?
