sunday portrait week 36

Photo on 2010-08-01 at 16.13
001. Last night I couldn't sleep and went through all my traffic sources, and read a ton of your blogs and the kind words you have to say about mine. Sometimes I feel so overwhelemed by this whole experience. To have people comment on how much I inspire them and how much they love my blog is just amazing, Its so hard to put into words how I feel. Sometimes I feel so under the radar when it comes to blogging, I think in regards to the fact LLYMLRS has grown so quickly and strongly over the last 6-7 months, I still find it hard to believe. I want to thank each and everyone on of you for being the best supporters and more importantly friends!

002. I've been drawing a little over the last few nights. Maybe some artwork might be creeping back in? I want a new background and header at some point! I'll probs update my Flickr with a few drawings and stuff soon!

003. The long awaited Ombre hair tutorial will be coming soon, this week if I have time. I promise! I think people are over thinking the whole Ombre process, Its so easy, and simple I'm sure you'll be kicking yourselves when I tell you how I did it! I literally get asked about this like 10 times a day! Some questions really annoy me, I'm not an expert on it, I don't know if it will suit you, I don't know how to ombre layered hair, I don't know how to dye already dyed hair. I'm not a professional and I wish people would stop bombarding me with a million questions I don't know the answers to, I will try and help but Im not an expert, and I know nothing about actually dying hair!

004. I've watched too much TV the last week. I guess thats what a week of work does to you. I've over indulged in Jeremy Kyle, Watched way too many teenage pregnancy programs, Contemplated getting a poof ala Snooki from Jersey Shore, and got angry at the fact The Hills ending was totally underwhelming!

005. Sorry for the crap picture, I hate doing photobooth versions of these! Sorry for the fact this is a bit rubbish this week! And Im sorry that the Ombre bit is a but moany. I promise Im not trying to keep things from you! Im in a rush and my sisters just had her new baby and I've been looking after her other child today and now Im off for a BBQ!



  1. Please don't ALA Snooki anything. I think she's a piece of gutter trash and frankly, your style is too cute and classy to mess with!


  2. Looking forward to the hair tutorial, I bet you'll be glad to get it up so people stop asking the same questions about your hair :P

    Also, the teen pregnancy programmes... least I'm not the only one strangely sucked into watching them haha. They're a good mix of funny, ridiculous, stupid and a little bit heartwarming.

  3. I have been strangely addicted to underage and pregnant...i actually cried the other week at the girl whose boyfriend died whilst she was pregnant =(

    Your hair looks lovely here and i look forward to the hair video.

  19. Thats funny cause I quite like the way you do a photobooth picture on a sunday! ha dont get me wrong I'm abit of a snob when it comes to the quality of photos on a blog (i'm abit of a hypocrite really aha!) But I think the webcam photos mesh well with your style of writing and you come across really down to earth, ha!

    I'm quite looking forward to some future drawings!

  20. You have such an amazing sense of style. Love all of your outfits and best of all such a great idea with your Sunday Photos. If I may try that out...if it's ok with you. I can't wait to see some of your drawings. Have a great day.


  21. I love your new hair! I watched your video again earlier and just spent the whole time staring at how pretty your hair looks, haha. Lovely lovely! xo

  22. i am seriously looking forward to your ombre hair tutorial. i've been scouring the internet for a simple way to do this at home, but found nothing too helpful. my hair is already kind of there, but i'd like to touch up the untouchup-edness?? (; love the looks. and that picture it cute. love your style!
