sunday portrait week 26

week26

001. Ill start off by what I normally say on number one. Hello new followers! I seem to have had quite a few this week which is just lovely! The winner of my contest will be announced tomorrow. Its all ready and picked ready to be posted, But to keep suspense I'll leave it till tomorrow! Sorry I forgot to do Flickr Favourites this week, My head was all over the place last night!

002. I know everyone's saying it but GOSH ITS SO HOT! I've never seen so much English naked burnt flesh before! Did have a spur of the moment thing to go to the beach this evening, But alas that hasn't happened. Ivor didn't have any money, and is currently doing his FMP at college so he didn't wanna mess that up by going away. Which is fair enough really! And I should be doing mine seeing as I'm going to London for two days this week as well!

003. Everyone should go follow Gemma & Victorias new blog called "I Know What You Wore This Summer". Its going to be a collection of different peoples outfits from the summer. Isn't it a cool idea! You can submit your photos and they will upload it, and link you in the sidebar!

004. I've realized Primark is slowly taking over my life. I went shopping today with my Mum, and I bought some really lovely stuff from there! Everything so much nicer from Primark during S/S. Price-wise too its just amazing! I even went into Topshop today and was disgusted by the price tag! Ive got my eye on this piece of swimwear though, But I think ill have to see it in person before committing! Oh also today I bought a denim waistcoat. Right. I hate denim, I really do. Denim shirts are a complete nono in my books, and dont get me started on Jeggings! But alas Ive been craving one for a while, And got one from George at Asda for £14. Lovely! On looking at the George website, Theirs quite a few things I like actually. Might have to give Asda another look!

005. Sun = Time to start showing my milky white bruised and battered legs off to the general public. I bruise so easily, Like the slightest knock on anything and I look like someones kicked me with steel toe boots. I'm currently thinking To fake tan or not to fake tan. Probably the latter as Im scared of being orange. Any recommendations post them in the comments!

  3. I know exactly what you mean about the price shock! I think once you get used to shopping in places like Primark and peacocks, it's harder to pay top prices for things. I feel like the quality does differ but most of the time I end up going for cheap and cheerful instead. Which is probably why I currently can't even close my wardrobe haha!

    I'm the same with my legs though, I've got a huge bruise on the back on my leg from knocking into a doorframe but I had to give in and get out my legs today or I would have melted.

  4. shabna - i can see that! i've seen stuff in primark that look so similar to toshop before! and even seen them both using the same materials!

    i love topshop its just soooo over priced for the quality!

    Oh & i use a fiji finepix s1000, Hope that helps! im hoping to get a new camera soon though

  5. Chloe- im definatly a cheap and cheerful kinda girl! but unfortunatly i subscribe to the OOH ITS CHEAP ILL GET IT! mentality! therefore i end up paying loads for lots of things instead of the one thing! sigh! ill never learn!

    I never get my legs out but just had to today! hopefully if i get a tan it will cover up the bruises!

  6. Hello,
    Have you tired the dove self tan thing (really descriptive, sorry!) the Dove summer glow beauty body lotion, it gradually builds a natural looking glow. I only use it on my legs and really love it.

    :)

  9. I'm lucky & tan naturally so I try to just sunbathe as much as possible (with spf on of course!) but my pale friend swears by fake bake and hers always looks really natural. She's ginger so she'd look silly with a really orange tan, but it looks really natural and subtle on her.

  10. hey girl, enjoying catching up with your old posts as a new follower, and this made me smile.

    I normally stay white too - fear of turning a not so glorious shade of orange! but this week I'm going to give my first ever home tan a go with xen tan ... will probably do a wee post on it (no laughing at the tan covered photos now when I post them) - but if you fancy a wee peep do look over at the end of the week ... I swear if I can manage it, then I'm sure anyone will be able to! :)

  13. gorgeous pic! i love your head scarf. I unleashed my milk bottles on the public this weekend, im not bothered anymore id rather be white than orange, but i got a nice lil glow from the sun, but if you do wanna fake tan i would recommend a subtle gradual moisturiser/tan such as johnsons holiday to avoid being tangoes hehe
