sunday portrait week 80



001. So here I am! In Turkey! My room has sweet wifi, surprisingly fast considering its only supposed to be in the lobby. As I type I'm sitting on our porch with a bottle of coke (glass bottle of course! free mini bar's FTW!) I feel like I've not stopped tweeting or anything since leaving! Its funny because my Mums actually encouraging me to take our holiday snaps on my iPhone and upload them in real time to her Facebook. Funny how the internet has changed life!

002. Didn't go too crazy in Duty Free, I'm quite gutted as we ran out of time as I was eyeing up the MAC stand! I didn't know Birmingham had a MAC stand so didn't even bother taking  proper look around, then my Mum pointed it out just before we had to run to our gate! Which of course was the furthest away and I literally sprinted to it as we were on final call!

003.  The above photo is from me around the pool yesterday day, I posted it on Twitter and had loads of comments saying I shouldn't be wearing makeup on holiday, then when I tweeted about wearing makeup on holiday so many people said it was normal!? Suppose people who do wear it dont think its odd? Haha either way I had a tweet asking about the products and I'm wearing Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, Bare Minerals Natural sunscreen, MAC Espresso for my brows (I always use this), Illamasqua precision ink eyeliner (again use this all the time!) and Maxfactor False Lash effect waterproof. I think I was wearing MAC Ladyblush on my cheeks too. I don't go in the pool as I hate chlorine and think that swimming pools are SO unhygenic, god knows how much baby piddle is in them! But it lasted me all day in the shade!

004. There is 20% in my jewellery shop until I'm back home using the code "AWAYFROMKEYBOARD", Please be aware that I wont be able to send anything till after the 5th July, so please keep that in mind when ordering! There are few bits of stock left including the super popular 5 ring mixes!

005. I've got some outfits coming up over the next week as well as a post on my sweet phone cover that was handmade for me. The outfit snaps are not the usual "llymlrs style", we all know how anal I am about consistency, As much as I want to change to doing full length photos, I refuse because I feel its too much of a change and not how I did it! However they came out ok and I'll do them the same everyday so its consistent! Im hoping to snap every outfit so I can do a big round up of what I wore vs the stuff that I bought but didnt wear!

  2. I always wear make-up on holiday...I still want to look nice, haha! But as you said, surely it's just preference?! People are too quick to criticize! Hope you are having a good holiday!

  4. Ah this post has gotten me even more excited for my holiday on Saturday! :D
    Hope you're having a great time...I agree with you about the make up - I don't wear much of it whilst laying around the pool etc, but I will do otherwise on holiday, and anyway it's a personal choice! No biggie if you choose to wear it or not!

  5. If you don't go in the pool, you have all the more reason to be wearing make up!

    To be honest, it's your own choice, you shouldn't be criticised for it!

    Hope your holiday goes well!

  12. You look gorgeous Lily! So glad you're having a fab time, and ridiculously jealous - it's so miserable here in England atm!

    I don't get the fuss about wearing make up on holiday, I always do and at the end of the day it's your choice! I do find it annoying when my body is tanned and my face is pastey white though haha, at least wearing make up with spf keeps your skin protected though!

    Enjoy the rest of your hol, looking forward to seeing the posts you've got lined up! xx

  13. I never really wear make-up on holiday, but that's only because I don't wear a lot at home anyway; people shouldn't be getting pissy about it, as you say, entirely your own choice! Have fun!!

  21. The MAC counter at Birmingham is new for this year,, as they have done all duty free out. When you go to arrivals aswell there is a small little shop for duty free & they had some quite good little gift set bargains when I came back last week xx

  22. I wore make-up when I was trekking in the Australian outback so it's definitely acceptable to wear it for sitting around the pool! Hope you're having a relaxing holiday x

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think your holiday make up looks fine! It's not too OTT, I never want to wear a full heavy face when it's hot but you still want some coverage to even out skin tone and give you extra confidence. If you were sat at the pool with the same kind of make up you'd wear on a night out though I'd worry, but I am sure there are still people who do that so each to their own.

  24. You look gorgeous! This post makes me want to travel :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sounds like you are having so much fun! That's so strange that people comment on whether or not you can wear makeup on vacation...you can wear it or not just as long as you know you look beautiful, then who cares! And I think you look gorgeous in your holiday makeup. Keep on having fun on your holiday, girl!

  27. tweeting and blogging whilst on holiday - that is dedication! I always wear make up on the first day when i am sunbathing and then i go in to a sweaty mess so i give up for the duration of the holiday. I don't think there's anything wrong in wearing make up though - not sure why people would think it's weird!? x

    ReplyDelete
  28. Lol I don't think I'll be bothered to tweet or blog when I'm on holiday! I wear a little bit of makeup on holiday in the evenings when going out for dinner and stuff, but not in the day. Each to their own! Hope you're having a great day x

    ReplyDelete
  29. You look so gorgeous! Some people make such a mountain out of a molehill - why does it matter if you wear makeup on holiday or not, really?! XO

  31. Aw you look so pretty and relaxed :) I don't think it's odd to wear make-up when being on vacation, I think you shouldn't mind about the anti-makeup tweets (I assume some of these people surely want to see you without make up and then gossip about it, you know how the internet audience can be...).
    Have fun in Turkey! can't wait to see more holiday posts :)

  47. I don't wear makeup on holiday, but this is because I live in the pool (I don't think about wee and stick to the "adult" pool in the hope of no adults pissing themselves) or sea. I totally do not understand the people who told you that you can't wear makeup on holiday... Wtf? Ha. Do what you want! At least you look good!

    ReplyDelete
  48. You look so beautiful, and completely natural. I've purchased your 5-piece ring collection and was wondering where I had to quote the 20% off? Xx
