sunday portrait week 38

1

001. My first week at New Look went really well! Was kinda exhausting going from not working for two weeks to doing 2 full 9-5:30 days, plus the hours drive! But its good, I basically do merchandising and keeping the area clean and tidy. There is some great stock in the New Look concessions department! Especially in the sale (takes forever to clean up!) I saw a ton of really lovely dresses for £5! They normally only have medium and large sizes left though which is a tad annoying! Id totally reccomend having a rummage if you have a decent conessions department in your local New Look. I was looking through the stuff and was goin "OOOH JEN WOULD LIKE THIS" and "OOOH ELEANOR would LOVE this!" Yup I think of blog stuff IRL!

002. Been playing with my new camera today, Been trying to work out how to make some good quality Youtube videos!

003. I've seen a few people drawings of me but when Alyse asked me if she could draw me, I was so flattered and immediately accepted! She drew a draft image of me the other day and its great! My I always envy people who can draw humans, I struggle with it so much! I can never get them to look like the person I'm drawing! Her drawings are absolutely amazing so go check them out on her Flickr or her Blog! My Mums asking her to do a drawing of me for our house!

004. Here a picture of my sisters new baby Jacob James, Isnt he a sweetie! Two weeks old today! He looks like a right grumpy old man mixed with Phil Mitchell from Eastenders!

005. Just so y'all know, I reply to almost every email I get, So if you want to know an answer to something I'd rather you ask me on there than in the comments. Its much harder for me to reply to those, I often think people will miss the answers if I do it in the comments! You can even tweet me @llymlrs and Ill reply on there! Also I add everyone on Twitter who adds me, As long as they have a non private profile (this is because I wonder if they want to be added back? Seeing as they are private and all!), So if you want me to add you back you need to let me know! I don't want any of you to think I don't talk to my followers because I do! I want you to be my buddies, not just some people who follow me! And Just so you know I actually recognize the names of people who comment me regularly and smile when you leave me lovely comments!!

  3. First of all your nephew is soooo cute, like seriously adorable!!! I'm glad your first week is going well, do they give you staff discount lol?!?! I think its really sweet that you see stuff and think other bloggers will like it. Whenever I see brogues now I always think of Eleanor!!! The quality of your new photos is looking great, very jealous of your new camera x

  5. 1. Thanks for the mention! I'm flattered that you're actually having me do a full out drawing! I just usually do them and stash them away somewhere!

    2. I hated retail when I worked, but New Look sounds like so much fun!

    3. Jacob James is going to start making really awesome weird faces. The best part will be when he gets old enough to talk and you get to hear all the interesting/silly soliloquies children tend to have.

  8. Your nephew is adorable :) My nephew is literally my favourite person in the whole world, & being an Auntie has turned out to be my favourite thing in the world too, so enjoy!

    Your camera certainly seems like a good purchase - I'm glad it worked out after that bit of stress there for a while with the transaction..

    Glad to hear your job's going well so far - you're the second blogger I've read recently that's just started working at New Look - I'm rather jealous, bloody amazing staff discount!

  18. Aw you cutie! I totally do that too though, I always relate back to bloggers! :)

    I remember when I hadnt worked for ages, and then went into a full time job it was really tough at first but you'd be surprised how quick you get used to it. I'm a tad jealous you get to see all the stock, bet you get a good discount! :D x

  20. It helps to have a light box when you want to draw a person but aren't the best at it. Makes things a lot easier!
    You're looking gorgeous btw, camera quality is so much better. Gotta love DSLRs :)
