sunday portrait week 35

1


001. This week has been to hectic for my liking, I've worked and see my boyfriend alot, but I'm glad to be doing nothing today!

002. I really like the idea of doing some Vloggy/Youtubey stuff, So many people want to see more from me in video form. My mind goes blank as soon as I see the camera though! I wouldnt know what to do videos on though! Apart from my hair/makeup/nails I really don't know what I could do. If anyone has any ideas of things I could video about, Let me know! I was thinking of doing things like tags and Q&A sessions through it, So you guys can get to know me better as a person, not just some faceless fashion blogger!

003. Had some seriously mean and often really rude and upsetting comments on my Formspring about my appearance after posting that video of me doing my makeup and this picture I posted before going to the gym. I know I look different without makeup, doesn't everyone look different? Surely putting my naked face on the internet for you guys if somewhat admirable. Not something to hate on. And as for the gym picture, my legs don't look like that in real life, Look at any of my outfit posts and you can see my legs are just a normal size. I'm no uber waif nor am I too thin! It makes me so upset to have people say negative things about me. I've suffered with low body confidence all my life, and now that I'm at a point in my life where I do feel attractive and have worked hard on my body, I get negativity anyway. I don't know why the internet has made people rude, I cant imagine saying half the things that were said about me to someone, via the internet or not! As they say don't feed the trolls, But sometimes, you just have to.

004. I'm going to embrace the tan and maybe explore a few fake tans for summer, My real tan is starting to fade, and I'm going to miss it. I've always been against the orangness, But I think being tan is acceptable in summer right? I'm going to try St. Moritz, it seems to be a blogging cult favourite, and its super cheap in Bodycare.

005. My Paola Loves To Shop Giveaway ends tomorrow, If you want another extra entry please tweet @llymlrs is having a @PaolaLoves2Shop Sunglasses Giveaway! http://bit.ly/dBlwm8. All extra entries will be added onto the list. The winner will be announced in the next week!

  1. Oh honey - don't let these people get to you! Internet warriors are not worth your time. You're lovely and gorgeous and you should be proud of that!

    And of COURSE you look different with makeup on... isn't that the whole point of it?! :) x

  2. To be honest you don't look completely different without makeup on, it's not like we can't tell who you are. Even though someone said they couldn't. Forget about all the negative comments most people wouldn't ever say it to your face and have to hide away behind a computer. They're probably just jealous because of how pretty you are because you really are!
    I love having lazy days after a busy week. I don't know about any other video idea's but I like the sound tutorials. X

  3. I think i said you looked so different in your video post, I'm sorry if i upset you. I think you look gorgeous with or without make-up on and i don't think i could put a picture of me without make-up on the internet, so i really admire you for it :) xxx

  6. I just read this post and went to watch your make up video, I totally admire you for putting yourself out there with no make up on! yes you look different but you still look amazing! your skin is clear and lovely. I dont have great skin and am very self conscious of it, i dont let many ppl see me without make up on, so dont listen to the haters they are just jealous that u dont need make up to be pretty.

  8. Ignore, ignore, ignore. Like I said on twitter you actually don't look THAT different without makeup on. I never will understand why people pick at others, it can create & amplify insecurities, that's just down right mean & heartless.

    Can't wait for yt videos. Be weary of st moritz, I don't know if its just me but it dries my skin out & goes very patchy if not regularly reapplied.

  9. Ignore them, if they have nothing better to do than be mean about something so pathetic then they aren't worth the effort! I loved watching your video and thought you looked lovely with and without makeup! The blog is looking great too :)

  11. There's only one reason people say mean things on formspring.... jealousy! You look gorgeous and not too thin at all. I suffered with low self esteem and a lack of body confidence for years. It's awful when people say things that just make you feel worse! Try and ignore it x

  12. Hey don't listen to anyone that said negative stuff, obviously people have too much time on their hands to make unnecessary comments when they could be doing something positive like you. I absolutely love reading your blog and you really inspire me to try different looks and outfits. I much prefer real blogs with real people doing their own thing rather than showy blogs just following trends. Keep being you. xxx

  13. Ignore them! I would kill to look like you! You looked amazing without and with make up. I hate people that dont like people wearing make up, you wear yours beautifully and it's only to enhance wats already there right? God I couldnt got make up less because I have very small eyes and without mascara I look like a mouse "beady eyes" lol

    Kepp making posts they are great!

  14. Formspring seems to be an excuse for people to be unnecessarily mean to other people. and thats down to one simple thing; jealousy!
    I adore your confidence, each of your photos shows a happy woman, so I say, as politely as possible, f*** them :P

    Also, could I be so cheeky to ask how you get your blog format like this?

  21. what a lovely blog you have here. I'm surprised I've never happened upon it before. I'll be following :)

  22. aww,i feel like giving you a big HUG! you know what,ignore those morons. they are just a bunch of sour grapes. you still look recognisable w'out make up-yes its a bit different,but thats the whole point of makeup! i understand what you're saying,because ive had very low body confidence these past few years & putting on make up & heading to the gym really boost my self esteem & confidence! people cant criticise all they want,but they are still viewing your blog,so just ask them to put up or SHUT UP! :)

  24. hiya, would love to see a video on your hair! how you style it, and how you dyed it recently - the faded blonde looks fab!! :) xx

  25. i've just started faking the tan and was very wary as i'm uber pale in real life. i use, no joke, ASDA's own brand bronzer/tanning lotion. it's really good, goes on evenly and it's subtle so you can just build it up. and at only £2 you cant really go wrong!!

  26. you should do a video of your little town for all of us to see, maybe even the bakery???

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ignore the trolls (I know that's easier said than done though!) You're beautiful!
    I started using St Moriz after I saw a video about it and I LOVE it, it goes such a good proper brown colour. I use the spray one and you do have to rub it in quickly so it doesn't streak, but I saw a mousse version the other day which i'm definitely going to try too.

  28. I LOVE !!! YOUR VIDEOS !
    But i can't see the make up video, it doesn't work in my country =(
