sunday portrait week 44



001. I return to university tomorrow, Well we all seem to think its tomorrow, but knowing our university it will more than likely be Wednesday in three weeks time. They are SO unorganized. Im looking forward to seeing everyone again and getting stuck into some work! Ive actually missed not being there, Going into the last year of my degree is kinda scary! Before you run to my now defunct Formspring and ask, I do BA Graphic and Media design, and go to Hereford College of the Arts and I'm currently on a first!

002. I'm so gutted I missed the Eyeko event on Saturday, Im eagerly awaiting pics and goss from the event! I really need to start planning a bloggers event, I have literally no idea where to start, but I want to meet so many people! Its a shame there isnt more big blogger meetups, I'm thinking of doing a Christmas one, But then I just know its gonna be hard to get time off work near Christmas!

003. I tried on this coat today in Telford, Its from George at Asda. Its like a brown check pattern with green and orange running through it, It also has a detachable fur collar! How sweet! I really need to start looking for a coat, especially since the weather has really turned this week! How cold is it right now! I also got my eyebrows threaded, can you see how nice and clean the shape is now! I don't think I'm ever going to go back to plucking (apart from the stragglers!)

004. I have written some of the things for my FAQ, Its by no means finished as I can still think of loads of things people always ask me, But I've covered a few of the makeup related ones as I know people are very interested in that! If you can think of any frequent asked questions I should answer comments plzz!

005. Five to Follow: Beth, Carina, Chloe, Charlene, Maddy

  1. Aw i love Beth too! I featured her today as well ;)

    Your uni sounds like my college, we started two weeks ago and we've yet to sit down with our main tutor. So i've still not started uni work, because no one knows what's going on!

    I hope it goes better than mine did :)

  2. Wow Lily! Thank you so much for including me! So shocked and honoured haha You are an absolute gem, I'd love to spend a night down the pub with you lol
    I think you've convinced me to change to threading! I love a lot of supermarket clothes! If you rummage hard enough anyway :)

    Regarding your FAQ - people think size 10 is "big"?! I worry for their sanity, I really do...

  4. ahh my uni's were always unorganised too, i think it's an academic thing haha. 3rd year is scary but feels amazing when you finish, can't believe i was starting mine 2 years ago. i hope you share some more of your uni work on here like you used to do! i liked that.

  7. Are you wearing falsies or do you just have perfect lashes?
    Also, I love this idea! I kinda came up with something like this were i post pictures of things that has 'happened' throughout the week and explaining them. Also you and allllure inspired me to change my layout, check it out if you like :) x

  8. In your FAQ you say that doing interviews for "blogs with few followers" is a waste of time and isn't worth your effort. Do you have any idea how conceited that makes you sound?

    Considering you started off with very few followers when you originally had an illustrating related blog and it is only since you talk about hair, make-up and "what I wore today" posts (hardly original) that you've gained followers; not to mention you can barely spell correctly.. I think it's a little rude and pretentious of you to not wish to help out fellow bloggers by simply answering a few questions for them. You're not exactly someone of huge importance that answering a few questions out of you "busy schedule" (which includes the tedious drama of your on/off boyfriend) is going to take much effort on your part.

  10. You miss have some fantastic eyebrows.

    I've been back to Uni for 3 weeks now and tbh it's a bit of a nightmare...half of the department are leaving after this semester. Makes me a bit anxious as this is honours...but gadz. The readings have def stepped up though...all I seem to be doing these days is reading. Isn't a bad thing, I was going stir crazy over Summer.

  11. Your eyebrows are amazing! They're the shape i would love mine to be! Oh and thanks for answering questions on your make-up, it always looks so flawless and i really want to try and get your make-up look :)

  12. I love your eyebrows! I've got mine threaded a few times and it hurts so much! I love the coat you tried on as well, go back and get it :)

    oh and anon, leave her alone, she cant be expected to do 100s of interviews that's unfair. and don't try and ridicule the content of her blog because it's great hence why she has so many followers.

  13. How long is threading supposed to last? My dad said he'd pay for me to get it done if it lasts long enough.

  14. in repetition of everyone else, your eyebrows look great :) i got mine threaded, but she made them sooo thin... i almost cried :'( i'd like them to be as thick as yours, but they look so untidy right now!
    love!

  15. I'm so lazy with my eyebrows it's unbelievable.. I should try threading though if it's the best way to go!

    I like that coat! The weather has turned cold quick & I can't believe I was buying scarf's etc in September!

    You should disable Anon comments. They obviously don't have the minerals to insult you with a way of you finding out who they are, they're just cowards with too much time on their hands!

  16. Ahh I just left ya a big comment and deleted it by accident :( Haters make me raging, seriously! Absolute cowards. Anon, up there, you're a fucking disgrace. Get a grip and go bully in someone elses playground.

    You don't deserve any of it Lily! But there are a lot of jealous creatures out there who will probs just want to get a rise out of you. Please don't let them get under your skin eh? :( xx
