sunday portrait week 84


suppose you see enough of my mug in HQ every week! photobooth ftw.

001. Tonight Im sitting and nomming on thai beef salad and coconut rice, feeling like the ultimate fatty! I forgot we had a Thai takeaway where I live so I just had to indulge! Hoping to catch up on some TV (TRUE BLOOD <3) and sort out all my makeup. I've bought a few new bits and bobs recently, probably swapped my usual clothing spend in favour of makeup but oh well! I've done a review of Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation today as its been highly requested after I mentioned using it.

002. Want to just mention all the horrible things going on in the world at the moment, the awful shooting in Norway, the death of Amy Winehouse and all the terrible things happening on Africa as a result of the drought. Today would have been one of my best friends 21st birthdays too, but he tragically died of cancer a few years ago. Its just been one of those weeks really that puts life into perspective, makes me realise how thankful I am for the safety and security in my life, but things like the Norway bombing and shooting just make you realize how vulnerable we all are and how unexpected things can really shock the world. My thoughts go out to everyone who's suffering as a result of things at the moment.

003. I've put up some blog sale stuff, alot of its gone already so I'm sorry if you've missed out or what you wanted has gone! I've also put free shipping on the five stone rings, that includes international shipping so its just £10 for all five & no postage charges!

004. I went to a Birmingham Blogger meet up on Saturday which was lovely! Will post what happened on ETC LLYMLRS during the week, I did a vlog as well! But what I was most surprised was that alot of people live in the same sort of area to me. Hayley has set up a UK bloggers map and if can your add your location to it it will help you find bloggers in your local area, its a great way to meet people who are interested in blogging in your area! You obviously don't have to do it if you don't feel comfortable letting people know the city you live in, but its really fun meeting people who share a common interest with you!

  6. Aahhh I love that moment when you realise you have some scrummy food, makes it that much tastier! :D

    I checked out your blog sale earlier and just now and so much is gone haha! I get paid tomorrow and have got my eyes on the brogues but I reckon someone will snap them up by then. I'm also a bit worried they won't fit me as I'm a 5/6, I hate that I'm kind of in the middle DX

    My thoughts go out to all the families who have lost someone because of the events that happened this week. It's difficult to comprehend how much has happened really ):

    I'll go check out the UK bloggers map as it sounds like a great idea :D xxx

  13. It was great to meet you yesterday! Looking forward to your post about it. I forgot to take any photos!
    I wish we had a Thai takeaway round here. I'd love a Thai green curry!
    Is that powder you bought yesterday any good? I'm in desperate need of some new foundation/powder so would love to know if it's worth the money!

  21. Glad the bloggers meet up was good! It's always really nice to meet bloggers in person, if a little odd as you feel like you know a lot about someone's life without even having met them before. x

  22. you look stunning, ive just added myself to that bloggers map, what a good idea although i swear noone else blogs near me lol, xxx

  23. 002 sums up exactly how I'm feeling at the moment too - very, very lucky with all this death & disaster going on around us, and it seems like its been a particularly bad week for it.

    On a lighter note, I've just recently started reading your blog. Keep up the good work & congrats on graduating! :)

  24. The second point i couldn't have put into words any better. It has been a terrible week for many and the Norway thing really brings home how we should appreciate what we have and the people around us. I also had terrible news this week about friends traveling. Its that awful realization that it is coming to all of us one day.

    But on a much brighter note you are looking gorgeous as usual! I think it might be time for me to get some of those rings!

  26. Omg, Thai is one of my faaaavourite types of food. Lucky, I haven't had Thai since I was in Aus!
    Added myself to that map. It really is a great idea! I had no idea there were so many bloggers near Brum.
