sunday portrait week 54


photobooth picture and man hands, fml!
 
001. I should be at the staff party tonight, but due to some mix up with hours at work, Im home, watching the X Factor final! I know which Id rather be doing! I did however buy a fab dress for the party from Topshop. I was gonna take it back, but my best friend, who actually won a million quid on euro millions a few weeks back is having a party next Saturday, which means saves me having to get another dress!

002. Finally decided to spend my £50 Office Voucher that I won when I went to the Look Show. I finally decided to get these lace up booties! I cant remember if I actually told you all what I won when I won that competition, but I won a years worth of Jergens moisturizer (which at the moment Im using by the bucket load!),  a Warehouse voucher, £250 to spend at Spoiled Brat (again, not used that either!) a Westwood Rocks voucher, some Nubar nail polish and of course a subscription to Look Magazine!

003. I uploaded a video ~outfit of the day~, basically behind the ramble I was trying to say, you don't just have to just wear trousers and jumpers in the winter, think about what you have and how you can update it to suit the weather. Long sleeved tops, t-shirts, vests, layers, scarves, snoods, cardigans and extra tights are your best friends! I will be adding videos to my Youtube of outfits that I've worn before and some that don't photograph well. 

004. I just have to rave about them, but Tweezermans are the best tweezers ever. As someone with large brows (through choice, overplucked and drawn on eyebrows make me want to vom!) they are amazing, they get all the little hairs and are so precise! I was skeptical about paying £20 for a pair of tweezers so I bought the mini's which were around £11 and are just as good! I have reshaped my brows a bit, as I wanted to

005. No Five to Follow, feel free to leave a link in the comments. You might be here next week, you never know! And there is no need to put yourself down when I ask for things like this, So many people put "Heres mine but you probably wont like it" or "its not good but..." Never say that about your blog, you should always strive to write the best blog you can, if you think your blogs rubbish, then imagine what other people think. My best advice when starting a blog or blogging in general is to write a blog that you would enjoy reading. Its suprising how naturally it comes when you write in a style that suits you, and about things that interest you!

  6. You are so right, it's so easy to put your own blog down...no matter how proud you truly are - I love blogging to pieces, and always write whatever comes naturally...but there's always a niggling feeling in the back of my head that worries what you guys must think! I guess the key is just to go for it and accept the fact that some people aren't gonna gel with your ideas/style. That's life!

    On another note, that competition sounds AHmazing. Well done for winning- and enjoy those prizes :)

    Here's a link to the blog that yes, I am proud of! frillsnspills.blogspot.com

  9. What a haul you one, that's amazing!! You're quite lucky aren't you! And your millionaire mate, wow! I have Tweezerman tweezers too, they are fantastic, my old ones (which I used to love!) seem so thick and blunt in comparison! I had someone email me today for 'blog advice' and I said the same thing, make your blog one you'd like to read if it wasn't yours! X

  18. A few things:

    A) LOVE the Lace-Up Boots, I have been looking for a pair just like this - but unfortunately, we don't have Office in Canada
    B) Agree 100% about the Tweerzermans, one of my best beauty purchases
    C) Wondering if you would consider recommending me for your Five-to-Follow next week? Take a look, tell me what you like - AND what you don't.
    D) You do nottt have man hands, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  19. That dress you bought is amazing - you will look so gorgeous in it! And I completely agree with point number 5.

  23. Quite a lot of swag there, eh? I love watching your outfit videos, however awkward you say you feel when you make them! I guess it's nice to see someone intereact with their blog on another level other than just taking photos...
    Lovely advice for us bloggers. Mine's still relatively new, so I can totally relate to thinking it's not quite special. One day it'll get reach your heights I hope :)
    Enjoy the festivities x

  29. What the flippityflip, your friend won a million on Euromillions?! This is kind of inspiring me to do the lottery! I hope she enjoys the money; how lovely!

    Tweezermans are awesome, my mum bought me some for Xmas a few years ago, but they've got rather blunt now. I've got big brows too! :)

  36. I just watched your vid :) I love seeing how you use colour and clothes confidently. I always stick to jeans and yet I LOVE wearing dresses and whenever I see peeps wearing dresses ans skirts as their daily wear I think I wish I would do that! So I intend on buying some nice casual day wear dresses with some chunky knit tights!!! :)

  38. You've inspired me to get my little playsuit out from the wardrobe!
    Primark do 120 den now so think I'm going to be donning the 240s haha.
    I'd love to have thick eyebrows.. mine are naturally thin but I'm careful with how I pluck them and fill them in so I don't have horridly thin eyebrows!
    I'm tempted to try out Tweezerman.. Early Christmas treat I think :)

  39. I enter the lottery every week but still haven't won haha, gosh what would I do with a million pounds, waste it all on clothes ;)
    Just watched your video and I really agree with the layering thing, I hate just wearing jeans and stuff like every day, you've gotta mix it up and it's surprising how warm you can stay. Tights and leggings are my must :)

  50. i like that you're into the big brows, mine are medium sized and i have a friend who talks about getting hers threaded all the time and they're practically none existent. then she looks at me with a hard stare and asks if i pluck mine -scuttles off with a hand on forehead-

  57. I think you've convinced me into getting some Tweezermans. I'd been a bit on the fence - mainly because of the price. I'm definitely a bigger brow lover. I love strong brows, but I do need them to be neat.

  65. Loving your hair in the video (you know that as I commented on your video already-but there we go!) Love tweezerman tweezers- I too am a slightly larger brow lady, I can not stand small thin eyebrows. I recently had the shaped slightly though, and the lady did an amazing job- I;m lazy though, so not sure how much I'll keep them up.
    Wow, you won some amazing things- I think the spoilt brat would have been gone by now, and love the boots from Office- good choice

  85. I noticed before I even started reading that your brows looked different in your portrait! I too have thick brows by choice and tweezerman is the best! (my husband even uses mine, he hasn't touched his tweezers since we married.)

    I always follow the links you post to shopping websites to see if they ship u.s. also. Love the blog!

  88. Love the playsuit in your OOTD video. I wear pretty much the same clothes all year round but add tights/layers underneath to make them winter approrpriate as I just hate trousers so much.

    Also love your point about putting down your own blog - I always make excuses about mine but am going to try to start being a bit more positive about it! x

    ReplyDelete
  89. Unfortunately I over plucked my brows and they didn't recover so I have to fill them in :( I use ruby & millie tweezers which are made by tweezerman and I swear by them. Why is it the hairs you would love to stop growing never do and the ones you wish would grow back are lost forever?!

    I've just started my blog, www.amilliondresses.co.uk and would love to feature in your five to follow!

  114. Come to think of it, I could do with a pair of new tweezers. And I cannot agree with you more. Overplucked eyebrows is a terrible sin. Especially on girls who naturally have larger brows (myself included). We can tell! I remember when a girl I knew, who had gorgeous eyebrows went and well, it looked like she'd shaved them. I almost cried.

    I'm very new to blogger, so my blog's untidy and desperately needs a nicer layout (the current one was just thrown together), but I suppose I may as well try!

    I've been wary of posting my link at the bottom of my comments though, I don't want to seem rude. What's the standard etiquette on that in Blogger?

    Oh, and here- :')

  119. Its so annoying when events and people cancel, Partys and things once you have brought the perfect outfit! I normally end up keeping it for another party or something then. Because taking things back to some shops now is a nightmare! x

  128. Totally agree that Tweezerman's are completely worth the money. I had the pink ones but they've disappeared and others just aren't living up to them!

  130. Haha, I just found a case with tweezerman tweezers and a magnifying mirror set in my brothers room. I'm presuming he brought it a while back but I only found out then, so as usual I stole it for a while and tested them out on my brows, and I was defo taken back by how precise they are. I might invest in a pair myself. You should also try them with a magnifying mirror, it helps to get the smaller hairs. Even though you might think they don't matter much, plucking them out makes a massive difference.<3
