this and that



Sorry I've been a tad M.I.A on here over the last 48 hours (the horror!), I had a little bout of blogger blues, Everything I was writing wasn't good enough, interesting enough and to be honest, I just couldn't be bothered. I'm still terribly run down from being sick last week, I come home from work and all I want to do is sleep. Bloggings pissing me off too, As much as I really do love blogging and sharing, I always feel like people want so much from me, it might sound weird and I know people will be like "just dont blog, its supposed to be fun blahblah!" I just feel like I'm under this constant pressure to be "LLYMLRS" (my pet hate is when people refer to me as LLYMLRS, thats my blogs name, not mine! Its Lily if you didnt know!)

Im definitely one of those people who would rather just not post than see the quality of my blog slip.I have the day off tomorrow, and I'm currently finishing off my September favorite which will definitely be up tomorrow, But I may go against everything I believe in and do two posts in one day, because I REALLY want to show you a dress I bought the other day! At the end of the day please just bare with me, I just want to get better and fall back in love with my blog. So if Im slow, I'm not gone, Im probably just on Twitter...


PS. If you want to read something good, I did an interview for Sara which you can read here.

  2. Aw Lilly, sorry that you've hit the blues! I know where your coming from though, I occasionally have a sneaky peak at your formspring and it seems that some people treat you a bit like a robot rather than a human... like they can't actually grasp that you have other things to do other than blog/reply to emails/answer formspring. Just relax & let yourself get better! We all appreciate and love your blog enough to wait patiently! Much love xx

  3. i know how you feel (in a very small fraction percentage type of way) when there is pressure to post and such. I had a while where i religiously posted every other day and it ended up just me apologizing and posting blurry photos of my star wars helmets... AND your monthly favorites are always immense and must be time consuming - so don't feel bad etc!

  4. Take a blog break if you need one? I don't doubt your followers will be back on the otherside. :)

  7. Lily, maybe you're just growing out of blogging. No biggie. Just put up a hiatus and come back whenever you feel inspired. You don't have to blog when you don't want to! I hope everything is well with you and just know that we love your blog and that you need to blog on free will and not on other people.

  9. I feel a bit like that at the moment too, luckily I don't have people pestering me on formspring though putting pressure on me! You need a life outside of blogging too, some people need to understand that. Hope you find your inspiration again soon.

  11. babe, you should not feel like anybody is pressuring you to blog, although it may seem like it. people love your blog and they love you. i've fallen in love with your blog and have enjoyed reading every single blog post you have done yet, and i am sure i will continue to. you can come back and post as soon as you feel like it. you're right. you should blog and feel happy about it. it's okay if you're a little m.i.a. i'm sure all of your followers can wait. <3

  12. I've felt like that a lot, hence a massive mia a while ago. It takes a lot of time & effort which is totally fine when you're loving it, but when you're not it feels a bit like a chore to blog.
    Hope tomorrow refreshes you!

  13. Aaaaw sorry to hear you're not feeling so great about things. Maybe turn off anonymous comments and questions for a bit? I hope you're back to your happy, fighting-fit self soon Lily. Just come back when you're ready :)

  14. I've just started following your blog and I got so excited when I found it, I think your gorgeous, you have hair to die for, your style is amazing. I've bookmarked your blog for style tips in the morning when I've got no clue what to wear, I'd hate for you to stopping blogging now I've only just discovered you :(
    Cheer Up Lily :)

  16. Lily, live your life as you did without blogging and something will inspire you when you least expect it.

    And do the xmas party thing! That would be a great thing to focus on and organise xx

  17. Aww I hope you feel better soon. I guess blogging is like everything, sometimes you just need a little break. Don't let yourself burn out, people just need to be patient cos we don't want your blog to slip either :)
    Cheer up xo

  21. Aw Lily, sorry that blog pressure is giving you the blues. I think quality over quantity definitely wins :) You post far more than most people I know and are so patient with all the questions, comments etc! So you can afford a few days off.

  23. You owe no-one anything. Don't worry about it. Those idiots can buggar off. You do your best and no-one should expect more than that.
    Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

  24. Don't update everyday if you don't want too. Better to post something with content than fluff :)

  25. Lily, please post whenever you feel like it! I don't want you to be feeling under pressure.

  26. I just wanted to say hi. I found your blog the other day while researching ombre hair and I found myself reading ALL of your entries. Which for whatever reason finally inspired me to start my own blog! So hello and thank you!

  28. Feeling exactly the same at the mo, i just cant be bothered to blog, which feels odd because i used to love it and couldnt wait to do a new post. ive lost the excitement.
    Hope you're feeling better soon and that the crazy fans calm down a bit after this post! x
