sunday portrait week 63


smudged liner, pen on hands, can tell ive been doing work!
hat: new look, top: primark, ring: topshop

001. Two weeks off work starts on Monday! I also have the week off university too, So excited to have some time off. Even thought I have no solid plans as of yet. Im supposed to be going to London Fashion Week, but my pass still hasn't been approved, And I'm thinking in reality I cant actually afford to go down to London and I cant afford the time off doing my university work, I really need to crack on and finish my dissertation as well as some D&AD breifs. At the moment I think I'll only go on Friday but I really don't know! Im sure my plans will change!

002. I'm planning on going to this Bloggers meet up in March. Should be really fun, I've never met any bloggers IRL (apart from Carla who drew a hilarious artistic impression of our meeting). It should be good. I used to go to university in Sheffield (well for 3 months I did!) so its gonna be nice going back! Cannot wait to meet Victoria though. We are planning on meeting sometime this month just me and her! Other awesome bloggers going include Gemma, Kelly, Kavita, Claire & Nicola!

003. Update on my shop pre-orders. I'm really sorry its taking so much longer than expected. I really hope to get everything sorted and sent by the end of next week. If you are sick of waiting and would like a refund just email me with your paypal email and I'll get that sorted right away! Im planning on launching it properly soon with tons of new items and a new name! I decided on JWLRY (jewellery sans the vowels... like LLYMLRS? GEDDIT?!) but just say it as "jewellery". I read somewhere that you can read words and sentences without the vowels?

004. I've been listening to the new Strokes song on repeat ever since it was played on the Zane Lowe show this week. Its so good, Is it wrong I already know all the words?

005. Follow the people I linked in 002 if you don't already!

Gosh this has been a very memememe Sunday post, oh ah wellz!

    The thing you mentioned in 003 is true! And apparently if a word is written backwards your brain knows and switches it around!

  15. Loving the hat :)
    aw 2 weeks off just sounds total bliss! I hope you get lots of work done but manage to enjoy yourself too, LFW would be amazing, so I think you should try go if you can!
    I'm pretty gutted I can't go to the blogger meet, the train ticket is just silly money, plus hotel rooms- no go for me. Some amazing girlies are going though, I'm sure you'll all have an amazing time.
    Love the name of the shop too- really good idea

  16. Definitely take the time to relax a bit and have fun at the meet up and fashion week. I always take for granted the free time I get by worrying too much about other things sometimes.

    Oh, and that ring is beautiful!

    And I love the new Strokes song too.

  27. It seems like your shop is going to do very well. The problem is fashion week is an opportunity of a lifetime, so that would be hard to pass up for me at least.

  49. I was reading an interview they did to you on N.e.e.t Magazine, where you said something i really loved:

    LLYMLRS is a normal blog for normal girls, with obtainable clothes and normal lifestyle. It’s just real and not like some fashion blogs who are like "This is 24 pictures of me, walking down the street in a $500 vintage designer dress with my new Balenciaga handbag, just holding my latte…"

    Haha, so true.

    Take care, dear!
