another photobooth picture, but my cameras packed for my trip!
001. I'm going to London, well I'm actually going to South-End, But anything in that southern area is London to me, later on today so this post is going up much earlier than I normally do them! As per usual I haven't packed a thing yet and I don't know what to wear! I was thinking of just taking one set of clothes because I know Ill be buying things while I'm there! I'm going on the National Express and its going to take like 7 hours, But I don't care! I'm so looking forward to seeing Olivia and spending some time in my favourite city! And I'm also really looking forward to seeing my other friend Jodie because shes amazing!

002. As I'm going away I've written a few posts to go up while I'm away. One is on my daily face makeup (which has been highly requested!), one on maxi dress inspiration and the other is a want post for Boohoo clothing! I really hope they actually post, Because last time I scheduled a few posts they didnt go up. I will have access to the internet so I'll try and get them up in some way! If anyone wants to talk or email me about anything, I'll reply as soon as I can! My email address is or tweet me @llymlrs!

003. Whats your favorite hot drink? I was actually distressed this morning as we had none of my beloved PG Tips teabags left! I had to settle for some "English Breakfast" tea which just isn't as nice. I like my tea extra extra strong, 2 sugars with a tiny splash of milk and not too hot either! I normally leave my teabag in my cup too. As for coffee, I do like it but I don't drink it much at home, If i go to Starbucks or somewhere I'll nomally just order an Americano without milk! What do you like? Tea? Coffee? Other?

004. My blog to follow pick of the week is Dance In the Dark. Leah has interviewed me for her blog which is so sweet! It was so flattering to be asked! It was a really fun thing to do! Shes interviewed a few other great bloggers too and shes doing more soon too! She posted a really cute outfit yesterday too, Which I totally thing she should do more of! Go follow her + check out the interview, Comment the interview too, Let me know what you think! Plus if anyone else wants to interview me or anything just ask!


  1. Weak tea - VERY hot, tiny bit of milk, no sugar! :) At Starbucks my favourite thing is a gingerbread latte at xmas, but I manage with a skinny latte the rest of the time :)

  7. 1. Hope you have a brilliant time London-way. How long you staying for?
    Looking forward to hearing all about it when you get back, & obviously seeing any new purchases :)
    The coach journey will be worth it - I always used to get the coach up, ridiculously long journey there & back (sometimes I only went for the day..!)

    2. Looking forward to seeing these scheduled posts - particularly the maxi-dress one & the Boohoo post. In fact, they could be linked, Boohoo's got some gorgeous maxi-dresses at the moment!

    3. I am a strange person & don't drink hot drinks. Ever. None. People tend not to believe me, they think I must be a secret coffee drinker or something, but I can honestly tell you: I do not drink hot drinks & never have done.
    So can't help you with that one I'm afraid!

    4. I'm off to check out your blog pick of the week now :)

    Take care, have a safe journey etc

  8. Hope you have an amazing time! I love your hat in the photo :]

  9. You look gorgeous here, love that hat! You have an awesome blog. Keep in touch for sure babes. KimboxKimboxKimboxKimbox

  10. I loooooooove tea. My ideal brew is super strong (I, like you, leave the bag in) with one sugar with PG Tips (or half a sugar if it's Yorkshire tea). I make a pretty mean coffee too - well, I'd better do if I'm a barista! - & my favourite is a soy gingerbread latte. Mmmm, mmm. But I'd take tea over coffee anyday.

  11. cute!!!! love the hat!

    xoxo jenna
