sunday portrait week 56



001. Aaah So much for not blogging over these few days. I cant get away! I mainly just dont want to miss out on a Sunday Portrait, They are like LLYMLRS tradition! Like I said in the video post yesterday, I hope you all had a great day. Mine was awesome. Had the family over today for Boxing Day lunch, I could hardly eat anything though as I was still full from Christmas Day!

002. Doing a big clear out of my bedroom today/tomorrow. I'll hopefully shoot a ton of clothes/jewellery/makeup that can go up on my blogsale blog within the week. I've decided that definitely need to refine my wardrobe. Not in a Gok Wan capsule wardrobe way, I just want more things that make sense, and less OMG THATS PRETTY ME WANT! In the new year I hope my approach to clothing will be alot more sensible, rather than impulse buying 3423 cardigans! Although you cant go wrong with that many cardigans!

003. Going shopping in the sales tomorrow. Id like to go to Birmingham, but my Mum wants to go to Telford. My iPhone 4 still hasn't come, so I really need to get to the Apple store before I go crazy.  Just read about a story about someone being stabbed inside the Bullring! Thats actually crazy, as soon as my Mum watches the news theres no chance we'd be going there! Although if we do go I REALLY hope I find this jumper. I literally want it so badly I'd cut my right arm off!

004. I hope you've noticed that there is a new little "reactions" button on the bottom of my blog. I put this there because alot of people commented saying that they often didn't know what to say in a comment. So if you like a post, please just click like. Feel free to add a comment if you wish to add something constructive or give an articulated comment, But don't feel like you have to comment for the sake of commenting. A little click of a the like button is just as appreciated! If you wanted to get one on your blog, go to dashboard ->design -> page elements -> blog posts -> then its under reactions, just type "like" into the box. If you don't understand, remember my mantra, google is your friend or just click that link!

005. Five to Follow (as per tweet request for URL's!) Rachel, Shannon, Lucy, Ismay & Rosalyn

PS. I know that Sunday Portrait has no numbers, I still havent gotten round to doing the numbers for my font, But its number 56!

  43. I just have to say, your eyebrows look really perfect in your photo! I wish I would stop being lazy and go out to the stores for the sales but quite honestly, Christmas has wiped out all of my money! Looking forward to pictures of clothes for sale! Good luck cleaning.

  44. I have eyebrow stuff but it never seems to go right.
    I love the topknot on you, but I've tried it on me and it doesn't look quite right.
    That jumper is so nice, I hope you find it.
    I'm sale shopping on Wednesday.

  53. Hi Lily!

    I was just moseying about on the internet sales and found these on Zara:

    http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/uk/en/zara-W2010-s/50903/15038/LEOPARD%2BPRINT%2BMOCCASIN

    When I saw them I thought *Lily!* and had to alert their prescence to you (hope I'm not coming over too alarming/stalker-ish! I swear I'm not).

  54. Ahh the like button is so handy! So much easier than just going 'ace post'! You will love your iPhone 4 Lily, my Dad calls mine my 'hand extension' because I just can't get away from it.

  56. Hey, I have found THAT JUMPER on ebay if you want to check it out, size 10. The ebay item number is 200557502769.
    I love the topknot! I wear mine like that at home all the time but I think it's time I wore it out! Thing is when your doing a style specifically to go out it never works!!xx

    How’s the wardrobe tidying going?

    I’m making my own capsule wardrobe which I will start to wear from Spring 2011.

    I’ve spent Christmas sewing like a mad bird - making things to fill my wardrobe. I know it sounds like a crazy plan but its something I really want to do.

    Would love some comments on what I’ve already made…

    My blog site is:

    or follow me on Twitter and I will Tweet my blog updates to you:

  71. What a beautiful photo! Love the floral print. I have the same fashion resolution for the new year. I think after Christmas a lot of people make room for the new goodies in their closets, and realize they have a lot of unworm stuff! Hope we can both stick to our resolution!
