sunday portrait week 40



001. How is everyone today? Im good, Nice to catch up on some sleep! I went shopping this morning on my own (I hardly ever do this!) I was supposed to be getting Ivor a birthday present but ended up buying loads for myself, although about 60% of it is going back as I just regret buying somethings ie. Primark dresses which are too long for me!

002. I'm so so so so so so behind on my emails, Like some of them are seriously about a week without any reply. I promise if you've mailed me I will try and get back to you. Some of you send me such long emails I really want to settle down and read them and give them a proper response so they normally take alot longer! I will try today and get things replied to! I try to get back to PR related ones first, then the ones that can be answered quickly, then the longer ones and then the interviews!

003. Next week I've got planned a twist on the standard monthly favorites tag, Im hoping to do a how they wore column as well as revealing a little about my new blogging project which is basically about bloggers answering current fashion issues and blogging topics! Also If anyone has suggestions for the how they wore columns leave them in the comments or drop me a email, Like if you have something and your not quite sure how to wear it (I was going to go with shearling jackets, but other suggestions are welcome!)

004. Spending my weekend watching Reading and Leeds Highlights. Sometimes I forget how much I love some bands. Watching NOFX highlights is making me fangirl so much over Fat Mike, Its not that hes even sexy, hes just a blimmin' cool guy! My other weird crush is Josh Homme from Queens of the Stonage, Hes a sexysexy man! Had a little fangirl cry over The Libertines (my old favourite band!) as well as loving Arcade Fire so much! Tonight I will probs be getting over excited about Blink182 + Weezer (one of my current favourite bands, My friend Greg rang me from their Leeds set!), Although seeing a Blink 182 reform may be really weird, I dunno but it doesnt feel "right" if your a fan on Blink182 you may get what I mean!

005. A little big of bloglovin' this week. Three to Follow: Quite Quaint such a cute little blog & Im loving her new outfit photo style! Kim's blog who I actually know IRL & Fashion Sterotype, Her style reminds me so much of my own, and her blogs really great!

  3. I love your lashes and your hair!

    I'm not sure if it would fit under a how they wore, but do you have any tips for positioning belts overtop dresses/tunics etc? Haha I don't even know if there are tips for that sort of thing, but I always have problems with that!

    Can't wait for your next blogs! [:

  5. You are blimmin' beautiful! I gave up wearing false eyelashes about a year ago but looking at yours makes me want to start again!

  6. Looking lovely as always!

    I don't think it's right that Bik have got back together - they did what they did and it was great, but I think they're about to ruin it!

    I literally never find anything in Primark! You seem to be so lucky!

  13. Can't wait to see your new blogging feature sweet :) I know what you mean about Primark lengths, they're also quite inconsistent, so if you rummage through the rail you can generally find the same dress/top with a slightly shorter hem! xx

  14. Ohh I love this sunday portrait, the picture itself is so pretty and you look stunning obv! x

  15. I'm a Blink 182 fan too, and definitely know what you mean - after everything that went down, it doesn't seem like it'd ever be the same! I've got my fingers crossed for a tour SOON, around my birthday in October would be the best present ever, haha. I can hope...

    I heard Weezer were excellent too, so sad to have missed out.

  17. I always end up buying too much stuff and returning it too, especially on my own. It's like I get hypnotized by the dressing room lights.

    I got these
    http://www.rastilho.com/merchandising/Shoes/Stellground_WINCKLEPICKERS/S-008M-SILV.jpg
    off ebay about a year ago, and they are a pain to combine.
    I feel like I can only wear them with jet black trousers but I want something more girly. (I feel so manly wearing them, I'm starting to hate them)

    So Thanks so much, I hope you can help me :)

  26. http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=true&catalogId=33057&storeId=12556&categoryId=209967&parent_category_rn=208544&productId=1903057&langId=-1

    I just bought these boots from topshop, but in a darker more chocolaty brown and i dunno if i could make them work by wearing them with a skirt? or will it look terrible?

  28. is it strange to say that i really love your eyebrows? apart from your eyebrows, i also love how attentive you are towards your readers!

    as a suggestion, i'd love to know how to wear a maxi skirt considering i'm only 5'2"! i want to buy one and wear it with band t-shirts and general tops, but i'm unsure if i would wear it a lot and whether it would actually look good me. i hope you could do a column on maxi skirts and how to wear them well :) xo
