sunday portrait week 39



001. I was so busy this week, so I really apologies for neglecting the blog a bit. I've not even gone to the gym this week so I feel so lazy! I'm working Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday next week. Its got me wondering if I will be able to cope with all these hours when I'm back at university. I've just got to keep thinking that I need to save for my future so I suppose its worth it! But im genuinely struggling trying to work at the moment and I'm not even in education yet!

002. Drew Barrymore is my current hairspiration, Her hair is looking amazingly beautiful at the moment. I know shes being bashed about it at the moment, I really dont understand why, its the perfectly tousled hippy-ish mess I'd love to sport!

003. Im having another giveaway soon, I'm trying to kinda finalize the actual prize. But I know you are all going to LOVE it! Its something I've been wanting to giveaway for what feels like forever and I've just got round to ordering it for the giveaway! One hint, Tan or Black?

004. Made some really yummy mozzarella and green pesto pannini for lunch, they were soooo good! Despite this I need to get back to eating better again! Ive had a takeaway 3 times this week instead of proper food due to being so lazy once I'm home! Next week I plan to eat 100x better than I have been! Salads and fresh veggies galore next week!

005. I'm currently watching V Festival coverage (I was hoping to be at the gym, but meh!), Alexa is looking as stylish as usual! Kings of Leon sound amazing too, Ive seen them three times now, and had a very weird encounter with them at the back of one of their gigs with a security lady shouting at me telling me "THATS NOT JARED" and I was like "IT SO IS, I SO KNOWW, IM A FANNN!", coincidentally one of my brothers is called Jared too. Fun Fact!

006. Im also trying to rock the middle parting, As much as I think it looks cool, I'm in two minds about chopping it and getting a long wipsy Daisy Lowe-esque long fringe. If you want to be stalkerish and check my first ever photo I posted of myself on here, I actually did have a full fringe at one point! My boyfriend used to say I looked like Caleb Followill circa Youth and Young Manhood!

  6. I think your hair looks lovely on the side or with a middle parting, the full fringe does suit you but my advice would be do think twice. I'm always getting fed up with my hair and because of that i always do stuff i regret. I had a full fringe once but it was too much hassle to take care of, it got greasy really quickly and for someone like me who can't be bothered to spend ages styling my hair it was a pain.

    Plus it took mine ages to grow out i'm talking about a year ago and my fringe is only just above my jaw!

    Gosh, sorry about the full on essay haha!

  10. I completely sympathise with you... luckily I have just finished my manic second year of university and I am spending a year abroad, I don't have to pass the exams just sit them because its all about socialising and learning the language so hopefully this coming year will be a bit more of a break!

    I am also the same with going to the gym, I am okay when I'm there but originally leaving the house to go is a nightmare!

  11. I TOTALLY agree with you about Drew Barrymore's hiar! I love it! My firend sid it looks mega greasy because of the 'ombre' style, but I love it!

    Your middle parting looks good! So, I say keep it! Until a new inspiration comes to mind!

  12. i prefer the middle parting, full fringes are too much effort and growing them out is awful but the centre parting really suits you!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  14. In the last time I became a huge fan of middle parting!! So keep it that way, but if you feel like trying something do it :)

  18. YOU are my hairspiration!! :)
    Still thinking of doing the ombre hair...I don't know why I'm so nervous to do it! I know it won't suit me as well as it does you! Leave your hair, just say no to fringe!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like you much more without the full fringe! In my opinion your hair is just perfect <3

  20. You look great with a fringe but I prefer it the way you have it now.

  29. excited to see what your giveaways going to be....and tan! i'm secretly hoping it's going to be shoes or a bag (big wishes huh) haha.

    and also i worked when i was at uni, i did 2 days a week and that was in my final year. don't know how i coped tbh, things got a little hectic. maybe try and cut down to just one day or two max if you can?!

  30. I have a major hair crush on Drew Barrymore and middle parts too. I am in the process of ditching my red hair and fringe in favour of something a bit more wild and unkempt. Fringes are so darn hard to grow out!

    Pretty picture :)

  31. drew barrymore is my inspiration too - people always tell me i look like her (: you know, you sort of remind me of billie piper with darker hair, and you're both absolutely gorgeous!♥ your blog is my favorite - thanks for being so wonderful!

    did you see drew barrymore on alan carr's chatty man last night? it was hilarious! i love her and her doo!

    do you ever like curl your hair or anything? i would love to see a post with curly hair one day! i think it would look gorgeous on you! but i do love your normal hair! it's gorgeous! the colour is absolutely perfect and my hair when i try and style it like you just flops aha! it sucks!

  36. Your hair looks really good right now, if I had hair like that I wouldn't change it!
    The temptation to try a fringe is always great, but it is SUCH a pain to grow the damn thing out again!
