sunday portrait week 57


i joined dailybooth

001. I don't really have any new years resolutions. I'd never stick to them even if I planned to. But my main goal is just to have more fun and work less but achieve much more. Oxymoron right? As for blogging goals, I aim to just keep doing what Im doing. If it aint broke dont fix it!

002. To clarify the "using my photos" issue. Basically use them all you want on your blogs as long as Im LINKED back with credit of the original source ie me! Thats making the photo a clickable link, or even just a text link. You dont really need to ask for my permission to use the photos, but Id rather they not be used to sell things.

003. I was hoping to do some outfit photos today, but laziness got the better of me. I have a stye coming in my eye. I think its because I've bought a new mascara and it hasnt agreed with me at all, but only now my eye is red and getting puffy I put two and two together.  Its not TOO bad at the moment, but it has got worse this evening, hence why todays picture is a photobooth image I uploaded to Dailybooth earlier. But we shall have to see if it gets worse or not.

004. I've started a new channel for my blog on youtube. ETCllymlrs, is basically going to be just all the stuff that isnt fashion related in video form. Your main concern with the new outfit videos is that they didn't show "personality". I feel they show more about me in terms of how I like things to be: to the point, obvious and aesthetically pleasing, than me blabbing for two mins in low quality about nothing. But we all have our own opinions, but I get that Youtube is about the person behind the camera, and I dont think everyone follows me on here to. So yeah, go subscribe if you want to see that sort of stuff. If your not interested, just sub to the main channel. I am currently uploading a vlog to my second channel, My internet keeps cutting out so its taking forever! IT UPLOADED!

005. Five to Follow: Victoria, Rachel Marie, Anouska, Ashley & Natalie

PS. My blogs had over 120 followers in 4 days, which is probably my all time record, Seriously THANK YOU!

&PPS. Still no numbers, Promise I'll do them tomorrow!

  1. The extra channel on youtube is a great idea! and styes are the bane of my life. Buy some goldeneye over the counter at the pharmacy, it clears them up quickly.

  7. Lovely photo! I hope your stye gets better I had a really nasty one a while back and it was awful. I went to the doctors and he just googled it right in front of me, printed of a Wikipedia page and told me to pop it - grim! I hope you don't have to go through that haha!!

    Love J.

  8. I really like that cardigan. The colour is really different. Happy New Year Honey :)

  9. Oh Lily I feel awful for you, I hope your eye is better soon! I hear a stye was an ingrowing eyelash, so maybe try to pluck it? Although that sounds like absolute agony! I've also heard a gold ring helps, although I'm not sure how.

  13. i sympathise with your stye! i've had something similar of late but possibly not as full blown as a stye, they clear up pretty quickly though i think :) lovely photo! i'll shortly be checking out your new youtube channel too.

  16. That is poop that people use your photographs without crediting you! Also, about the sty! Thats poop too! I have always loved your blog, so you are right in not wanting to change it 'If it aint broke...'

  19. Oh no! I hope the stye doesn't get too bad! I got one the day before I started college, they're awful! I was nearly in tears because I thought nobody would want to be friends with me 'cause I had a gangily eye, hah! how shallow of me xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  20. You look great!! I don't have any new years resolutions as well! I think that if I want to change something, I can start whenever I have to not at the beginning of a new year :) x

  21. Awh I hope your eye "gets better soon", as weird a phrase as that sounds! Must be so weird seeing your photo used in places you don't expect :/ Congrats on all the new followers, I can still remember back in the day when I first found your blog and it was at around 650, so happy for you about your blog's success! (: xxx

  25. Ooh apparently if you wear gold then your stye will go faster! Worked for me but probably just like a placebo kinda thing xx

  26. omgsh, 120 followers, you are so lucky! I would love loads of followers, not for the like "ooo look at me and my blog" but actually because I'd like the fact that so many people want to read about me and my daily happenings! x

  27. What a pretty photo! it reminds me of a precious moment girl:) i am new to the blog world, but love yours!!!

  29. I loved the old style vlogs as it's nice to see you speaking, rambling on was cute and yes made it personable and likeable. But I get that the new style is more professional and suits how you want to convey yourself. It will be nice to see a mix of non talking quality outfit posts and some of you chatting about other stuff too. Congrats on your huge super following totals of late, I'm not surprised, I'm fairly new myself and follow about 200 blogs but yours is easily my favourite to read and most looked forward to. I think you have the perfect mix of professional/quality posts, along with a normal girl likeability!! xx

  34. Gah! Styes are terrible. You can alleviate the pain and make them go away faster if you don't wear eye makeup for a few days to just let the skin breathe. In that time, keep your eye area clean and apply a hot (but not hot enough to burn your skin) compress to your eyelid. The heat opens up the pore and will help drain the fluid that's built up in there. Hope it heals up soon!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Stinks about your stye eye, hope that clears up soon! It's nice that you are pretty laid back about your photos being shared, some people out there are not into at all.

    Love this blog, so glad I found it!

  43. I dont kno about wearing gold to make it go but if you put a warm tea bag on you eye every hour it will go. my friend is a pharmacist and thats what he told my boyfriend to do when he had one and it cleared right up and it saves you buying stuff. hope it helps
