sunday portrait week 49

 

001. Its my brothers birthday today and we just celebrated with cake and champagne! Although I've saved my champers for later and opted for a mug of tea instead! We had this awesome meal (well mine was nice, everyone else said theirs was a bit blah!) last night at this little restaurant in town, with the lushet bit of steak I've ever had! I've been telling everyone he was 16 today, when he literally was like "Im 17" I was like... OH. Im a bad sister!

002. Went shopping earlier today too, Bought HD webcam because I figured I didnt really need a camcorder as I was literally only going to be using it for Youtube stuff. However being a total dunce I didnt check if it was fully compatible with a Mac. It does work but the settings arent fully accessible and wont record in full HD, despite its claims. I think Im going to take it back, Hopefully I can get one that works with a Mac, although its proving harder than I imagined! If all else fails I'll probably just spend the extra money and get a proper camcorder.

003. Didn't like this week's X factor one bit! Thought it was boring, lackluster and felt like it was just there. Of course my main man Matt Cardle did an amazing job, I actually have goose bumps! He has real star quality for sure! Fingers crossed Katie will go this week, The thing is I don't hate her voice, I just cant warm to her as a person, She seems like a fame hungry attention seeker, She comes across like a diva and then acts like a child when it comes around. I think Wagners time is up though, I dont think I can sit through another performance of his!

004. Just want to alert you all to a little cause called Movember! Its a cause that aims to bring awareness to forms of male cancer. Now as you may or may not know my best friend died of cancer earlier in the year. I think we don't hear half enough about cancer in men. Beth's boyfriend is growing a tash in aid of the cause this year, If you'd like to support him (and keep track of tash growth!) you can do it here. If i had the ability to grow one I totes would! I love moustaches!

005. Five to Follow: Lauren, Vicki, Boo, Ulrika & Lauren

PS. Will be doing my usual Sunday night BlogTV at 9pm (GMT) till 10pm! Follow me on Twitter for the link!

  2. I'm so glad Movember is getting more coverage this year. My Dad has prostate cancer and male cancers are so underfunded. You look beautiful x

  3. I forget how old my brothers and sisters are too - they grow up too fast that's why! Movember is a brilliant cause. I wish I could grow a 'tache for it (:

  10. you look lovely as per usual! xx

    I really think the male cancer awareness month is a good cause because you're very right when you say we don't hear enough about it.

  12. Happy birthday to your brother! My brother has a Samsung HD video camera that he uses for filming Youtubey bits and other things, and the quality is amaze, not sure what model it is though :/ Totally agree about blimmin' X Factor! Katie made herself look like an idiot in that sing-off! xx

  18. i'm always forgetting my sisters' ages. usually it's in the middle of an arguement, probably something about them being mature and i'm telling them to act their age saying something along the lines of you're 13 for godsake! to which they say: what, becki i'm 14 and then it's like errr and my arguement just falls flat. sad day! :)
    i think this is the second time now i've left a rambling story comment on your blog, i think this is bad somehow ...
    love B. X

    I totally agree with you about this weekends x-factor, very underwhelming, Matt was the only one that gave me goose bumps. x

  22. 1. Great idea for the cause.

    2. Agreed, X Factor was really blah. I think it will be down to Mary, Wags or Katie. I'm for Katie going right now. What was with everyone crying this week...

    3. You look so gorgeous in this photo!
    xx,Rebecca

  23. Completely agree about Katie - that's my problem with her. I can't believe what happened with Cheryl's vote tonight though!! She said she'd vote last and then she didn't get to vote at all! I bet it would have been the other way round if it went to deadlock!

  24. You are too pretty! & I love your bedspread.

    & As for Wagner, I hear ya. He better go.. What was up with that performance? Haha.

  26. happy bday to your brother..I thinks its a great thing to raise awareness about male cancer, both my great grand parents died from it.It's definitely an issue that should be more talked about!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You pretty thing, you! Totally fell in love even more with Matt last night. Actual love xx

  28. It was my brother's birthday the other day, and I was determined not to do that (I do it ALL the time). I'll definitely be sure to check out those blogs as well x
