sunday portrait week 96


 photo from a few weeks ago, to ill to take one today, pj's FTW.

001. A very sniffly sunday post today, I have the flu. Fingers crossed it's gone by Wednesdays Cosmopolitan Blog Awards. I've spent most of today with my duvet and a bottle of Night Nurse. I didnt even move from my bed till midday. I hate this time of year when the weather changes, my body seems to reject it all and make me a grumpy ill person. Reading alot of other peoples summary posts today I noticed a fair few people on the sicky bandwagon too ):

002. As I mentioned above its Cosmopolitan Blog Awards on Wednesday! I'm staying over to party with some other bloggers which I'm really looking forward to (illness permitting!)! The competition is really tough this year and I think its one of those things that can go either way, especially as some of my favourite bloggers are in my category! Some really stiff competition in the both the Beauty Blog Categories, I really didn't know who to vote for in those ones! Excited about seeing all my blogging faves IRL though! So fun! I've picked my outfit and everything!

003. Decided its finally time to get rid on the ombre, I love it but its just not for me anymore. Its too "done" and I think its had its time, so its byebye! And potentially hello blonde. I was actually blonde till I was about 13, then I started dying my hair and then now its just naturally the brown it is now. If I can drag my bum to the hairdressers in the morning Im gonna see how much it would cost. I obvz dont want to be peroxide blonde, just a natural warm sandy blonde colour, like the Ombre in my hair already just all over.

  9. Oh I do love your ombre hair, however I think a sandy blonde will defiantly suit you. Luckily I haven't gotten sick this year, which is brilliant considering I'm nearly always ill. Hopefully it'll stay away!

    Much love http://cheapbrokeandyoung.blogspot.com

  19. go blonde for def. i know people say going blonde should be done in the summer but i adore being a new found blondie & will stay that way all year round, does wonders for my confidence! xoxo

  20. ombre is like your trade mark! well, i guess everyone rebrands *winky face* (when you actually type it, it intimidates me)..Sunday portraits won't ever be the same!

  21. i hope you feel better soon lily! also good luck with the blog awards! :) X

  22. I agree the ombré look is too "done"... you've done it really well (no orange bleachiness!) and it really suits you, but it is absolutely everywhere, and not many who've home-dyed it themselves have managed to get it quite right!

    I always think it's nice to have a new colour for a new season too :-)

    Hope you feel better soon, my cold is just on its way out thank god!

    P.s. I've posted your earrings on Friday so fingers crossed they'll be with you tomorrow :-)

  60. You would look great as a blonde! (And I'm not saying this because I am blonde and have blonde-bias!) I do like the ombre too, but I know what you mean about feeling tired with it. I added pink a few weeks ago and am already getting tired of it--guess that's how those things go sometimes. Hope that you feel better soon! xx

  61. How do you do this effect with your camera? It looks really good! I'm curious to know!
