This past weekend was my high school prom and below you will find a selection of pictures along with everything that went into making the day special.
Preparations for prom began way back in January, with booking appointments and finding the perfect dress! I tried on so many different dresses, some I liked and some I didn’t, but nothing seemed to be “the dress”. We travelled out of town and dedicated a whole day to finding a dress, as I hadn’t found one I liked where I lived. I liked most of the dresses I tried on, but I couldn’t picture myself wearing them. As we were shopping I saw one at the back of the store I thought was neat, but I didn’t think that I would like it on myself so I never asked to try it on. Eventually the lady helping us brought it over and asked if I wanted to give it a try. It was so unique and definitely not what I pictured myself wearing, but after a lot of thought and help from friends I decided it was the one!
Picking out my accessories, such as my clutch, and finding hair, makeup and nail ideas wasn’t easy either. I had ideas in my head, but I couldn’t find what I wanted. For my clutch I knew I wanted something pink and not glitzy, who knew that would be so hard to find 😂 For my nails, I kept going back and forth between two ideas, I ended up taking the advice of the lady doing my nails, and I’m so happy I did because I think they came together wonderfully! As for my hair, I had many people ask me whether or not I was going to do my own hair. I had decided a long time ago not to do my own hair, and the reason for that was because I didn’t want to be stressed out and have something go wrong. So I left that to the professional, and I was so pleased with it, it was exactly what I wanted!
I had a wonderful day and made so many amazing memories!
I hope you enjoy these pictures taken by my wonderful mum! There will be outfit details on my Instagram, so if you have any questions about anything I’m wearing check there 😘 I did take many pictures with friends and family but I have decided to keep those for my personal pages.

Congratulations Gabby. Gosh your Mum took beautiful photos! They have really capturedthe detail on your beautiful dress. One feels like you could touch the pearls. Your hair is definitely fitting for the overall feeling of elegance. It looks like you had a beautiful day for such a memorable occasion. If I can offer one suggestion: try to remember to enjoy the journey, and not get too wrapped up in the drama of day to day living. Sometimes the small things bring the most joy, and we often neglect to notice them. I know easy for me to say!!
