sunday portrait week 53



001. SNOW. That's pretty much all everyone from the UK has talked about this week! Snow brings the UK to relative stand still, You think we'd be better prepared as we tend to get it every year though! I did get alot of university work done this week though which was a relief. I'm really starting to fall behind because I've always got different things to get on with, I'm totally gonna be working non stop over the Christmas period though!

002. As you can see from this Twitpic I won a 2 cases of Vitamin Water this week. So happy as I LOVE it so much! My favourite vitamin water is the "yellow one" (spark) and "the orange one" (essential), So was nice to try two I hadn't tried pink & purple! Very nice! Vitamin water is actually one of the only calorie laden drinks I'll have. I refuse to have any drink with more than 50 calories in, Whats the point in drinking your calories away, I'm looking at you regular coke! So good, yet so wrong!

003. I NEED A NEW TV SHOW TO WATCH! Seeing as Glee and Gossip Girl are just about to take their mid season breaks so I'm in dire need of something new to watch online! I spent the other week watching all of the True Blood series, so that is out of the question! I like most types of TV, especially trashy American shows! Any good series worth checking out at the moment?

004. Just wanna say this guys, Don't take things I say too seriously. I'm a joker, half the things I say are sarcastic or just sound stupid! Life is to short to care or get upset/offended by something someone you dont know says on the internet! I hate that I have to address this too, personally I find it SO petty, but I've had far too many comments/emails this week dwelling on a joking, not intended to mean any harm or upset, passing comment related to uggs. And remember just because I don't like something, doesn't mean you cant! I'm not here to tell you how to dress!

005. Five to Follow: Selina, Becky-May, Marianna, Alyse & Shalane.

  7. Misfits is a good one, I normally hate that sort of sci-fi shit (not sure you could really call it that though...?!) but honestly, it is SO GOOD. Think you can watch the first series on 4od & the second series is being aired at the minute, Thursdays at 10pm E4!
    Properly jealous of your Vitamin Water too, I love that stuff :)

  13. Watch Dexter for sure!! It's amazing!!! You look lush in that pic! I think I've only had the yellow vitamin water too. People take things way too seriously don't they. I don't care if someone doesn't like something that I love. In fact Rob hates half the stuff I wear lol Thanks so much for your comment on my formspringer :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  16. Misfits and 90210 FTW! :D xxx

  17. Ah, I love Vitamin Water! Especially the pink one - yum. It also smells like a medicine I always had when I was a kid which tasted really nice... is that weird? Haha.

    And I think we have identical taste in TV.. American trash is the best! Have you watched the Vampire Diaries? Or if you like funny/cute crime shows, Bones is great!

  19. Me and my boyfriend are making our way through The Walking Dead, and I've started watching Desperate Housewives from the beginning as well. Lovely photo x

  20. Vampire diaries!
    That show is SO good!

    BTW I love your blog! You have great style, cute clothes, and seem like a great person (:

  21. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER,
    is now in season 6 (:

    ReplyDelete
  22. Firstly I fully agree with your hatred of Uggs. Yes I wear them too, in the privacy of my own home and maybe to the hairdressers if I'm feeling really lazy or it's particularly cold. They are not, I repeat NOT a fashion item, ever.

    And when it comes to online series's, I am addicted so can offer some pretty handy hints about that:
    - 90210, obviously. The characters are all so insanely hot it more than makes up for the storyline being plain insane.
    - The Good Wife: amazing legal drama. Incredibly interesting and informative, so not even trashy.
    - Drop Dead Diva: the idea sounds ridiculous but trust me it's strangely addictive.
    - Dirty, sexy money: probably my favourite of the lot. I watched both series's in about a week. Yes my megavideo was the best thing I've ever bought and I highly recommend you invest in one if you haven't already. Love Ella. X

  23. Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars & White Collar are all AMAZING! & if you haven't seen them before I also recommend Nip Tuck and Desperate Housewives! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mate, start watching Community. It's hilarious and also really touching! I torrent them but I know that they're showing the first season on Viva. Everyone in America has gone mental for it, sort of like Arrested Development. Modern Family is also really good and they show that on Sky 1.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am in the same boat! i need to find new trashy american shows to watch!! I just can't get enough of Gossip Girl at the moment!!!!! AHHHHH!!!

  26. Agree with 'HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER' - fantastic show! You should check out 'BIG BANG THEORY', which is hilarious - you gotta love sheldon! :)

    I dunno if it's possible to watch old series online, but WILL&GRACE is always good for a laugh.

    There's also anime series if you're into that?

    ReplyDelete
  27. You should watch Vampire Diaries, its in the 2nd series in the UK now so its better if you watch the 1st series first obviously aha, but yeah its so amazing. The best TV programme ever, bit extreme but its true aha :)

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm going to start watching misfits during the Christmas holidays :) apparently it's pretty good xxx

    ReplyDelete
  29. Maybe try Raising Hope... I saw the pilot and then the first ep... I think it's Sky One but I watched it at my boyfriend's so I'm not sure. It's your standard trashy american sitcom... but particularly funny in my opinion! Ha, you're literally inundated with stuff to watch now judging by the array of suggestions!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh + Pretty Little Liars- really good as well!

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. MISFITS!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think you'd LOVE Hellcats. Like, LOVE. It's so typically trashy american but so so good. And also Pretty Little Liars? The second season is back in January but theres already been such a good season!
    And obviously Vampire Diaries and 90210!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    & bananas, potassium is the best!

    as for the snow, i'm down in devonshire so we've had an inch and that went after a day. i'm totally gutted, i love snow. I have very little sympathy for the whole standstill thing, sorry : )

    ReplyDelete
  38. Cougar Town can be surprisingly amusing despite being about older people. And Vampire Diaries. And 90210. They are the best of "American Trash"
    It would be mine

    ReplyDelete
  39. Mad men, big bang theory, how i met your mother, jersey shore, 90210, raising hope
    hope you'll find something fun to watch :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Vampire Diaries is incredible, I would have to say it's actually better than true blood! I got really into it and the two leading men are gorge ;)

    Plus theres lots of episodes per series xxx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Try and Watch MISFITS its really good!!!
    comes on thursdays

    ReplyDelete
  42. you have to check out the show WEEDS! so addicting and so entertaining! I am almost finished the entire true blood series as well.....how I have gone this long without watching it I do not know, so frickin good!

  43. Misfits, ohh and Hustle, but the new series come out in Jan xxx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Totally agree with people saying misfits, its brilliant! The first few seasons of one tree hill are really good and so is 90210. Oh and Make it or break is good and you can watch it on 4od:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. In regards to a show to watch, DEXTER! I'm just starting season 3 & it's immense.

    ReplyDelete
  46. i would definitely suggest 90210 if you like gossip girl and glee, it's such a guilty pleasure - so bad it's good. everyone's going on about misfits at the mo so that might be worth a look as well! loved your last outfit so much as well

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ugly Betty or One Tree Hill?

    I love your checked shirt btw, I really want an oversized one to wear around the house!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Since you seem to like all the same shows I do, I'd recommend Dexter! It's on season 5 now, so you'll have plenty to watch :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. you look gorgeous! :)
    + i'm jealous of your vitiman water, my fav's the orange one..mmmm :)

    xx

    ReplyDelete
  52. Try Parenthood if you like family drama tv shows. My all time favourite are Gilmore Girls, obviously. It´s just always entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  53. pretty little liars is amazing. it starts up again in january too so once you've watched them all you shouldn't have to wait long for the new ones :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love Raising Hope, 30 rock, The Office, Community, and Outsourced. Teen mom, and 16& pregnant tops trashy shows for me.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ah FUCK, now I'm curious about what you said concerning Uggs. Honestly if it's something bad about them, I agree with you, those shoes are kind of annoying haha and I'm sick of seeing every girl wear them here in the United States. Don't get me wrong, they are SO comfortable and I wouldn't mind owning a pair but would never make it a style. And wow, people shouldn't get offended over such trivial things. AND it's your blog, your opinion so damn it.
    DRUGS NOT UGGS, kidding.
    You look great by the way!
    kiss kiss bang bang

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh yes, if you want a VERY good American show (it's not trashy at all so I'm not sure it'll be what you're looking for) you should watch Weeds. It's so funny and awesome, I couldn't recommend it more. But if you want a very trashy American show, watch the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or New York haha can't get any trashier than that.

  57. 1. I want to say a HUGE thank you for including me in your Five to Follow this week! I feel extremely flattered and it made me want to squeal a bit (didn't of course, as I wasn't the only one in the room).

    2. I saw that comment (on your youtube?) and it was pretty obvious that you were joking. But you're pretty high profile and a lot of people take things on the internet way too seriously even if it's just a joking opinion! Can't make everyone happy =/

    3. Vampire Diaries, LOST (this one really wraps you up), House

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ok LAST thing I promise. Please don't watch Hellcats of Pretty Little Liars, they're both very very bad shows. Don't get me wrong I loooove trashy stupid stuff but those shows are just terrible, the acting is dreadful and the plots pointless. Just sayin'!
    kiss

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hahaha I dont like Uggs too =P What did you say about them anyway?
    I watch a lot of shows, I would say that you could try
    Big Bang theory, raising hope, hellcats, pretty little liars (ahh! sooo good!), greys anatomy (I love!), House (the guy is has this dry humor, but I love it), uhhmm I cant think of any more.
    A lot of people watch vampire diaries, but I dont... but you might want to check it out.
    hulu.com has a lot of shows. so does this turkish site diziport.com =)
    I looove Glee too <3 (and gg)

  60. Oh! I watched make it or break it for a while. I like that too. I actually watch good luck charlie (disney show) and it has some adult jokes sneakily put in, same with victorious, (nick show) I watch a lot of disney shows =P

    Btw, you are soo lucky, I wish we had snow here, it would be pretty cool. What really happens when it snows? I mean does everyone literally stay home? Awesome.

  62. My latest tv shows " How I met you mother" and "Beautiful life":)In my opinion they are really good.

    ReplyDelete
  63. You should watch Modern Family! U'll love it! And 30 Rock, House, 90210. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi! I agree with Katie, Walking Dead is amazing, but you can also watch Vampire diarie, White Collar (this one is my favourite), I think is enough.
    Kiss, I love your blog and your style.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I'm with you on the whole drinking calories away... hot chocolate is the worst this time of year!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Most people have already mentioned all the American series I would have said, but one that I definitely think you should watch is Greek. It's like your typical Gossip Girl/OC/One Tree Hill teen drama/comedy type thing but it's about the fraternity and sorority system in American universities - SO GOOD!

    I saw your comment about Uggs and didn't think anything of it (and I actually wear Uggs...only in seriously cold weather though...), it's funny how people get so wound up by a passing comment on Twitter. Chill out guys! x

    ReplyDelete
  67. MISFITS! And White Collar are so good!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Try 902010, Lily!

    I actually like Uggs but I don't really wear them because I think there are better alternatives out there. I can't believe you got stick for expressing your opinion. You're not going to enjoy every thing that your followers enjoy and that's what makes you an individual. I don't get some people, sometimes.

    You look gorgeous as always xo

    ReplyDelete
  69. i've been keeping occupied with the original 90210 :) def worth watching if you haven't seen them, and the 90's style is amazing!

    ooohhh and big love is also really good, especially chloe sevigny's character! xx

    ReplyDelete
  70. You look beautiful here Lily, love the slightly mussed up hair!

    As for tv shows, I'm totally loving Misfits at the moment like half the commenters here. And have you tried Mad Men? Well worth a watch.

    Sally x

  71. ugly betty!

    my fave programme ever!

    ReplyDelete
  72. 90210 and one tree hill, amazingly addictive- i watch them weekly along with glee and gossip girl- american cheese mostly. but gotta love it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. you should totally watch Pretty Little Liars :) it's really addictive and is a real good watch. If you wanted to, it's on Viva at 8pm on Thursdays :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. if you wanna laugh, the big bang theory is the best and absolutly epic.

    but.. very good tv show is the vampire diaries too. it's more scary and romantic.

    I'm wondering which tv show you choose, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I'm agreeing with anyone who's said The Walking Dead. Seriously, Andrew Lincoln is HOT.

    The Cranberry Vitamin Water is my favourite. Defense, is it? Can't remember. Don't get the purple one, it's Not. Good.

    ReplyDelete
  76. hey there, i havent read all the comments here.. but i can recommend modern family. i love it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Your outfits are always so cute. Ive been watching Desperate Housewives, I absolutely love that show and also House, just because he is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  78. No Ordinary Family - like the pixar movie, The Incredibles, but in series...and they're not cartoon people.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Oh I just found your lovely blog! And yes you should try The walking dead, its super gory but very good, its the only T.V program I watch =)

    www.leche-vitrine

    ReplyDelete
  80. Ah such a pretty pic! Love the vibe of it too with the light!
    Oh i am a little obsessed with an american tv show just now called make it or break it, its kinda perfect american teen tv you can watch so many epi and not even realise, oh and Gilmore Girls is classic if you havent seen it too!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hey Lily I'm afraid I must add to your epic amount of comments, just finished reading your comment on Gem's post as I think you needed this more than anyone, so glad you have had your say kitten.

    I remember when I first saw your blog and it was when you where posting a lot of your work and, I always loved how blunt you are and were. Not in a bad way you just don't sugar coat things and I think it's great to see down the line that you are still you. Anyway I am so tempted to put the 'leave Lily alone' on one of my vid's haha ...BTW I LOVED Victoria comment ' I wanna be you' one made me laugh so hard !!
    You are well jammie BTW on the vitamin water, at least it will be refreshing after a shift or gym. It's the pink one I love :)
    oh I am so with you on the URL think (example's above lol) anyway hope you are looking after your peg legs pirate Lilly ;P x

    ReplyDelete
  82. Trashy American TV is my calling.

    Check out real housewives of Atlanta (or ANY of the real housewives)

    Any of RuPaul's shows (drag queens its great!)

    Not trashy but great, desperate housewives, the walking dead and boardwalk empire! xx

    ReplyDelete
  83. i've recently stumbled upon your blog, and it is so lovely. it is amazing how everything seems to stop in the UK. but i suppose the UK isn't used to such extreme colds, like they are in berlin. even so, the snow and cold has been effecting transportation here as well.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Have you ever seen Nip/Tuck, Weeds, or Lie to Me? All three are fabulous!! If I had to choose I'd say weeds is my favorite of the three but Nip/Tuck is a little edgier :)
