sunday portrait week 91



001. Obviously its 9/11 and I wanted to take time to mention it in what is normally such a self obsessed post. I'd just started secondary school when it happened, I remember walking up to town to my Mum's bakery and it being eerily silent. She told me as soon as I got in as they didnt mention it at school, I just watched the TV and just couldn't believe it, I stood there in shock not really understand why it was all happening. I think its changed the world we live in completely, makes me thankful for my own life and the people around me. My thoughts are with all the families of the people who died.

002. Spent some of the afternoon at Ludlow Food Festival, I love where I live but gosh its so busy this one weekend of the year. Had some nice food, lots of samples and took in the country atmosphere. Le sigh, When I move to the City that's when I'm sure I'll miss it the most. Moving has been put on hold for some personal reasons, I still want to move but god knows when its going to happen now unfortunately!

003. So much for having a blogging few days! Still not started writing reviews of the products I've been using or sorting photos of the events I've been to recently! Tomorrow I shall do sit down and get some content written and that is a promise! So weird juggling working freelance with blogging! Im not the best at time management as we all know, I'm easily distracted really and thats my main problem!

004. Bought a fair few things recently considering last month I hardly bought anything last month. I got this purse with a L on, this triangle necklace, few MAC bits including a 182 Kabuki and Paradisco eyeshadow, Vera Wang Princess Perfume (LOVE), a Denman hair brush (why did I not own one before!) and some fake tan. I'm suitably bronzed right now! 

005. I was linked to this Glamour Magazine competition on Twitter and thought it might interest people! Basically its to win a blogging gig for Glamour Magazine as part of their "Style Triibe" alongside some of the UK's best bloggers! I might enter but I might not!

  5. 9/11 sucked. I remember watching the news all day (didn't even do homework for the next day at school - i was in middle school) and totally freaking out since my dad was in the US at the time. He was in Chicago, but everyone was just so scared that more terrible things are going to happen. :(

    P.S. Nice necklace! ;)

  12. I came back from the school and I was horrified by the news. The 11 september is the only day where people remember what they made 10 years ago.

  13. I was doing my A Levels when i found out about the attacks in NY. Why does that make me sound like I am a lot older!? It's such a sad day, and you're right, it has completely changed the world we live in. xxx

  15. I remember 9/11 very well too. I live in NYC and at the time I was 8 almost 9 and my mom ran into my class and told me that we had to go home. My school was about 4 miles away from the World Trade Center but the streets were still very crowded. It was silent; no one was talking, probably one of the most ominous experiences I've ever had. There was a big cloud in the sky from all the smoke and what not. It was terrible. R.I.P. victims.

  16. I remember all the parents talking about it outside the hall when I was at dance, when we came out it went silent, even at that age I picked up on the mood. I was too young to understand it, I just knew something was wrong.
    I wish where I live had a food festival, at least it has plenty of beer festivals.x

  18. I remember watching it on tv after I'd finished school-obviously too young to fully comprehend what was happening but still sensing the fear. I can't imagine how heartbreaking it must be for the families affected. My thoughts are with them at this time of year.

    The food festival sounds like a great day out and I'm looking forward to reading your product reviews :)

  26. Secondary school is like high school right? (I live in the U.S.). It's great that all of you international bloggers have been posting about 9/11, it means a lot to us Americans to know you all care!

  27. Vera Wang's Princess used to be *my* scent, before I discoverd The Body Shop's much more purse friendly vanilla oil. I still ask for Princess for Christmas though, as the bottle is so preeeetty and it's nice to have a different scent for special occasions!

  37. mice to thrive. These pests often infiltrate homes and set up camp in wall cavities and roofs. They can wreak havoc on your property as they chew through structures and furniture in hopes of locating food and sites for nesting. Their droppings can also cause myriad health problems. If you live close to restaurants or any other businesses related to food, you should be particularly wary of rat infestations. Flicks Adelaide's pest control team inspects homes for rats and mice.

  38. The relative warmth of Adelaide's climates makes it an attractive environment for rats and Possums in South Australia are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, so harming them can result in you being made to pay heavy fines. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call, set a trap on the roof of your home and catch the possum. Spiders Arachnids such as the venomous Redback spider not only look scary, they are also dangerous to humans. Spider control treatment is often necessary to keep them at bay and off your property. A qualified Flick technician can treat the danger zones in your home including cracks and crevices, lighting, doorways, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes. Such treatment can prevent spiders from proliferating and overrunning your home.
