sunday portrait week 79


biting my nails, such a bad habit! always when im nervous!

001. Today has been a bit of self induced panic, I've been packing (and being distracted by practically everything) for my holiday as I'm going to have so little time during the next week. I really should have started packing last week, but my own laziness got the better of me! I've got to get my final university exhibition show up by Wednesday as well as sort all the work I want to get up at New Blood for D&AD. I have no idea what I really want to exhibit but as a group we have quite a cool idea for a little gimmick for the show!

002. I've finally finished watching all four series of The Tudors (main reason why I've not got anything done in ages!), I actually love it. I need to find a new show to get into for a while! Game of Thrones is nearly over for this season too, However True Blood is back soon so I can fangirl over that for a bit! Missing Gossip Girl and Glee very dearly!

003. I thought I'd link this YSL arty copy ring on here, I know its the must have ring and not everyone can afford the real thing. Its not that chep (think about £20, but compared to the real one, a bit of a bargain!), Depends how people feel about fakes/inspired things etc! But thought people would appreciate the link!

004. Last orders for my own jewellery is going to be on Wednesday evening, I will be away from the 17th till the 29th, and then I'm in London from 30th-4th July doing New Blood. So realistically I wont be able to start processing orders or reply to things until the 5th July. I shall be making this clear on my website, but I thought I'd put it on here so if you were thinking of ordering, get them in as soon as possible. I also have two new items, a dimpled knuckle ring and a hematite tooth necklace.

005. This made me chuckle (and a little shocked!), Today I was looking at my google analtics and apparently 81% of people that view this blog spend less than 10 seconds viewing it. So if you are of that other 19% that do take a few extra mins to read what I write, thank you very much!

  9. It is the same on my stats too! So many spend only a few seconds on it haha. It's so strange. Anyway, I think I spend more than 10 seconds on every blog I read, how can you be that fast?

  14. If you liked The Tudors you should maybe check out The Borgias, its a similar kind of historical show.

  28. Haha, that is so amusing about your google analytics...I read every post you have sweetie, they are very fun and interesting! I'm missing GG and Glee, too, summertime usually doesn't have fantastic shows. Have a lovely, well-deserved vacation!

  29. I think most ppl just look at the pictures. Kinda sad, but what can you do? ^^

    ReplyDelete
  30. I watched Turdors when it aired ages ago mainly because of the lovely Jonathan Rhys Meyers! great stuff, also I used to bite my nails but have been trying to control myself, they're a lot better off but sometimes I can't help but have a nibble!

    ReplyDelete
  31. 10 seconds?? Wow! I'm one of the others! =) Have a great holiday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Loved your dino outfit, and just your blog in general...

    Can you do an outfit post with that top you have on here. I have the same one and completley lack in inspiration/ i have no idea what to pair it with! eeeeek, please help!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wonder if most people click on the links you post before reading the full thing and then come back, read more, click on another link etc. Just because that's what I usually do :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. What? 81%!!! That's unbelieveable! 10 seconds! And you don't even write that much...wow... I need to do that too with my blog! Thank you for the tip!

    Good luck for the exhibition!
    Love,
    Emily

  36. Am totally feeling your pain with lack of TV! I've been meticulously rewatching my Gossip Girl boxsets and am halfway through Season 3 at the moment. Got my fingers crossed that my Dad brings me back some new boxsets when he's back from his hols! Love the colour of your top toooo (: xx

    ReplyDelete

    Good luck with the packing - you're still doing it way earlier than I ever would! xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. less than 10 seconds!? Thats crazy!

    I've seen UK ebay sellers selling the arty look-a-likes for about £15, I always keep it on my watching list! x

    ReplyDelete
  45. Im from Spain and I really like your style. But also what your write on your blog!
    Read what people write in their blogs is a good way of know the person. I mean if I didnt read what you write, I think I dont like your blog as much as I do. I feel that you´re realistic.
    You dont look like those bloggers that dont live in the real world.
    PD: I know his comment is toooo long...and sorry for my bad english! Hope you understand!
    Have a great holidays!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lovely little post! And your nails are such a cool color!

  47. i am a bit shocked too by that percent :)
    but hey, that 19% are what matter, right? :)
    and once again, you are super cute! xx

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love reading what you write, you always have interesting things to say! I saw that YSL ring on eBay too but sadly they only ship to the US, otherwise i would have nabbed it for sure. Good luck with all your upcoming work.

    Ps: if you're looking for a series to become addicted to, watch The Vampire Diaries. I am pretty much a Twilight hater but I just loved this.

    :)

  49. Really cute picture, even if it is of a bad habit! I also used to chew my nails, but I grew out of it once I started painting my nails more often.

    I spend time actually reading through your blog! Maybe 90% of your readers are speed readers... :)

  51. Are you serious? 81% of people stay for less than 10 seconds. I'm definitely on the other side, since typing this all up would surely take longer than 10 seconds.

    I hope you have fun at your holiday!

    ReplyDelete
  52. sounds like you have such a hectic schedule coming up! :) Good luck with everything.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh gosh. Well I suppose lots of people have short attention spans? Lol. Well rest assured you have a whole bunch readers who read your every word! <3

    PS
    I used to bite my nails too; so glad I somehow left that phase!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Lovely photo as usual. I loved the Tudors - especially Henry Cavill *roar*

    ReplyDelete
  55. I definitely spend more than 10 seconds! That is a crazy statistic!

    Good luck getting everything ready for your hol and I hope you have a really great time :) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  58. i read what you write... :D if that helps...
    well i'm a new reader. but i'm sure i'll keep reading your blog. why don't you check mine? :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sounds like a hectic schedule, bet you can't wait to get away! Such a cute photo, i'm the same, biting away at my nails when i get nervous, really is such a bad habit. It's shocking that people log on to your blog for such a short period of time, i could read yours for hours, LOVE it.xx

    ReplyDelete
  60. My stats are like that too haha - people must make snap decisions!

    ReplyDelete
  61. maybe the people who go on for 10 secs only like to quickly look at the pictures? Or maybe they have a tinsy crush on you and just like to look at your pics... Well thats just creepy sounding!
    I read it all the way LOL Really pretty BTW.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Hope you have fun on your holidays! Maybe you have this one freaky stalker that keeps looking up your pictures, but then feels ashamed of themselves and quickly closes the tab, only to re-open it later? That was weird, please ignore it.
    Other than that...uh they read really fast? It certainly takes me more than ten secons to read your posts x3

    ReplyDelete
  63. You look lovely, your make-up looks especially pretty! Haha, those people who take 10 seconds on your blog must be very skilled to read a full post in that time! x

    ReplyDelete
  64. Well, that shows how many people actually visit in the first place because you get a lot of comments! They're all people who spend longer than 10 minutes! Good luck with your exhibition btw. And I'm a True Blood geek, I cannot wait for it to start in less than two weeks!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. The Tudors are great, Im a bit biased cause I worked on the set but still! LOVE the portrait, your nails are an awesome colour! x

    ReplyDelete
  66. beauty!
