sunday portrait week 45


001. Soz Macbook photograph, But I currently sitting in my PJ's and a big hoody! I really could be bothered to set my Tripod up and do it properly! Spent the day cleaning my bedroom (I've uploaded some new stuff to the blogshop!) and sorting out my university stuff. Spent ages saving images on my laptop to print out tomorrow for my inspiration board. My first project is based on Love and Hate, I'm pretty excited to start it to be honest, I've got loads of ideas for a change!

002. Im so sick of my hair at the moment, I've had a bad hair week and I'm in the mood to just chop it all off and get an Alexa-ish bob! Its too long, too flat and too blah. I'm tempted to get some new extensions for some volume rather than backcombing it like I normally do. Who knows, Next week Im going to spend some money and buy some decent haircare too. I know I always say that, But I WILL!

003. Zoe posted this great guide to shopping in Primark, As a self confessed Primark addict, Personally I don't see why people find it so hard to shop there. I guess I'm lucky because I have a decent one near me! My local one (Hereford) is really rubbish, its only good for tights and the occasional pair of flats, But the one I find most things in is in Telford, Its really well stocked and laid out. Me and my Mum always tend to go early on a Sunday and we always spend about a hour having a good rummage. I think alot of people just look at the tat in Primark and don't really have a good rummage, which is the key to finding good stuff in Primark!

004. Ok this is slightly off topic but not, But has everyone seen the new GAP logo, Seriously I nearly died when I saw it, I thought it was a joke. I've never ever seen a logo redesign look so rubbish! There was really nothing wrong with their old one! I think when redesigning a classic logo, you really need to stay true to the old one, without going to far away from what the original was like!

  9. I agree with the whole Primark thing, so many of my friends moan about shopping there but I just get on with it and it's not that bad! x

  10. Thank you so much for the mention! :)

    And I have always kind of disliked Primark but since moving to uni I've found it more appealing, I think it's because I'm a lot nearer a decent size store now!

  12. PLEASE, don't chop off your hair. Pretty please. Or do, and send it off to me or something.

    And if you're in for spending some money on hair care, give a try to the Bottega Verde e-shop (it's www.bottegaverde.com). Normally you have lovely discounts the first time you buy, plus some other random discounts (keep an eye on that!). I advise you the Karite and the Argan lines, they do wonders. God i sound like i was advertising.

  13. Aww I love your hair! Although I guess you could get a pretty big trim and then you'll love your long hair when it grows back in haha
    You're right - the new logo looks awful =/
    I wish I lived near a huge Primark! Although I would probably end up spending a small fortune.

  14. God I so agree about having urges to just chop off all your hair when you're having a bad hair day! But I really do think it looks lovely here :) And with primark I got used last year to going in before or after lectures very early in the mornings when I could have a good rummage but I couldn't face it at any other time with all the crowds, horrible! xx

  15. You always looks so cute in your photos! And your hair is very nice, don't cut it! I just saw the new gap logo...are you serious?! They honestly downgraded to the lowest of the lowest! I wonder if thats gonna affect them somehow. Great post as always! :)

  18. OMG that new Gap logo is totally crappy!

    I loved Primark at Hammersmith when I lived in London, i was backpacking so was on a budget and was able to get loads of new clothes for a bargain price. I miss it :(

  21. Nice picture! I live in Manchester, and the Primark here is just too big for me personally. Can't face going in and trying to get around all the people getting my way!

  25. i'm dying because we don't have Primark in Poland...it's such a cheap way to look good!
    hahahah,the new logo of Gap is not a good idea.. when i was thinking of this shop i saw in my mind a dark blue square with white sign - it was characteristic and now? it doesn't look professional.

  26. i thought the Gap logo was a joke until i saw people going wild over it, it looks like an accountancy firm!

  34. I've not tried the Hereford Primark but agree that the Telford one is very good. Also, heard there's a new one opening in Worester - which we can hope will be better (I plan a lot of trips when I'm home at Christmas!)
