sunday portrait week 50


001. Same old same old guys. Nothing great or fun has been done this week. Although I saw Due Date on Monday (or was it Tuesday) with my friend Greg. It was really good and I totally recommend going to see it! Hopefully will be going to see Jackass 3D this week! My 14 year old self would be totally excited about it, But I'm in two minds about it. Alot of people say its good, but some say its pretty sick.

002. I'm going to Cardiff next week for my friends birthday next week, So I need to desperately find a dress that will come before Saturday. I really like this one. But the idea of wearing white out clubbing makes me nervous. One luminous alcopop later and it would be ruined. So has anyone got their eye on any nice (ie not slutty) going out stuff, please help me!

003. I am venturing into the world of Youtube, and properly this time. I've bought a new camera as per recommendation of Gemma.I'm always asked "do more videos... do more videos... do more videos!" I occasionally wonder if people dont actually read what I say and find it "easier" (convenient, less effort innit!) if I do a video. But I just want to point out that this blog is my priority, and the rest is just a cheeky bonus. I am trying to run "OOTD" videos alongside the actual blog posts though, to try and integrate the two. As someone said in the comments of yesterdays post, Its nice to see it in "3D". But yes, I wont be doing makeup tutorials, No matter how many times I'm asked. It will literally just be vlogs, my consumerist thoughts on things, reviews and recommendations.

004. The new layout is coming along nicely, I'm still in two minds about changing the banner. If you don't know the story of it, I drew it on a napkin in Mcdonalds, well before the blog even came about, I actually just used it for a placeholder when designing the original layout and its stuck ever since! I'm tempted to just redo the background and then keep the banner, whats your thoughts? Theres also going to be a new comments system, one that makes it easier for me to reply to comments, Cant wait to finish it up and get it live!

  1. I saw Jackass 3d! It's good but some of it is pretty sick. I had to close my eyes for some of it! Definitely worth a watch though :)

  8. Thank you, you lovely lady for the link - massive spike in visitors noted! Very grateful :) I actually love the current blog header and the story that it's been there from the beginning. This new commenting thing sounds amazing - the blogger one does my head in not being able to respond to people. Enjoy Cardiff xx

  13. Keep the banner. It's unique, there's a story behind it and it seems like many of your followers like it including me :-) If you do decide on switching the banner to a new one, you could consider integrating the old banner into your new design somehow.

    Have a splendid week!

  14. Lovely photo. GO AND SEE JACKASS. It's AMAZING! My face hurt from laughing so much afterwards. Can't wait to see the new layout. I think a new header might be nice, but then again, this one's been with you since the beginning... x

  15. That dress is beautiful but I agree - it's a bit dodgy wearing white on a night out :/ Which is a massive shame. I like your header so I think you should keep it (:

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your header's lovely. Really simple but the alignment with the blog looks great.
    The dress is lovely, but anything with a peter pan collar has my heart.

  23. I like the header. I let Dale go and see Jackass with his bro tuvva day, like you say I found it funny when I was younger. I know what you mean about white and drink, never a good combo. Hope you have a fab time, looking forward to the videos Xxx

  24. Keep the banner, it has a nice little story behind it.

  25. I always like H&M for going out clothes- they have some really nice Christmas dresses in at the moment. Was going to try this gorgeous deep blue one on today but was in a rush and had skinny jeans on (no changing room time for that palarva!).

    Loving the glasses xx

  26. OOooooh that dress is nom - though you'd def have to be one brave girl to wear it on a night out... not impossible though!!
    I really like the banner as it is 2bh - it's so recognisable and most importantly original- plus it has a cute story which is never a bad thing :P

  27. That RI dress is lovely, but white on a night out definitely isn't the best idea, haha. Makeup, drink spillage, falling over (if you go that far!)
    I love your banner, it's original and you even have a story behind it!

  32. if you really love that dress (i do!) you can get anything out of white really by popping 2 aspirins into the full of water washing machine with the white clothing or soaking the white part in hydrogen peroxide or a tiny bit of vinegar and a cup of water :) haha laundry 101 but i love white.

  35. The dress is nice, but don't wear white out clubbing! If you stand under a UV light it'll go see through.

    Plus I like your header, maybe you could just rework it instead of starting from scratch??

  36. cant wait to see the new layout.. i think white is ok for a night out as long as u stay away from wkd blue! im thinking of getting a white dress with black sash on asos for a night out this week. :) xo

  41. I absolutely love your banner!
    My suggestion would be to just neaten it up so it's not as pixelated and to make the outline bolder.
    I also think it would be cool if you could get rid of the white box/make it transparent so you could just see 'LLYMLRS' floating on the background (if that made any sense whatsoever haha)well, that's my quick thought anyway.

    can't wait to see the new look!

  42. I love the banner.
    If it means something to you, I'd keep it X
