sunday portrait week 97


Milly, Anna, Me & Zoe

001. Comso Blog Awards Photo! I feel like I've run out of time to actually post about it because so many people who went already have! I didnt win my category unfortunately! But congrats to Anna & Olivia who totally deserved their winning categories! I was really sick the whole day, look fab, feel terrible was my most commonly said phrase! Had a lovely night though! Favorite part was coming back to a hotel for lots of chatter with Gemma, Sarah, Lauren, Olivia & Lyzi!

002. Giveaway up on ETC LLYMLRS! I'm giving away 8 Models Own Nail Polishes!

003. Decided that November is Comment month! I never comment blogs, I read absolutely loads of blogs, and its not because Im lazy or think Im "above" being a commenter. I've just never ever been much of a commenter on blogs, forums or journals or whatever! Over the years I think I've got myself into a non-comment rut. Even on Facebook is a rarity I talk! Basically just going to try as much as I can. Im going to keep a record of how many I comment on in a month too!

004. Went to London again this weekend, as I went to see The Streets last night at London Freeze which was really good actually. I'm not a big fan (my friend Hannah is obsessed!) but I really enjoyed it. Haven't been to a gig in what feels like years! Was a good atmosphere! More travelling next week though thinking of going to visit my VIPXO as shes finally come back from Canada! So I may be up in Leeds for a bit towards the end of the week!

  21. Such an awesome photo, you wouldn't be able to tell your ill! Glad your feeling better though!
    Yeah Freeze was insane! It was ridiculously busy, but The Streets were pretty amazing right.. I'm not exactly a huge fan, and I found it mega hard to dance to! Little bit of sexual swaying haha!
    Have a lovely time up in leeds!

  24. Awh you all look so glam! Still pleased for you that you were shortlisted for the Cosmo Awards sweet (: You've popped up in my blogging lectures so much recently haha. Oh gosh, I'm an over-commenter on blogs, I just can't stop talking on these for some reason?! Shall shut up now! xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. Lovely picture, you definitley do not look ill! xx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Streets is one of those bands you only like a few songs of but they'd be awesome live. You look lovely :)
    Looking forward to a full outfit post on that...
    It would be mine

  27. Gorgeous photo you look beautiful :)

  28. I think I might follow your lead comment-wise Lily, have fallen into a bit of a lurker-rut myself and determined to start commenting again! So glad you had a good time at Cosmo, from what I've seen/heard it was a great night, if a bit feeble in the cocktail area ;) x

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've read lots of posts about the Awards - it really looks like it was a wonderful night and such a great experience, especially to be able to meet so many other bloggers!

  31. You all look gorgeous :) And maybe see you around if you're in Leeds! (Because it's where I live, not because I stalk bloggers around the country, haha)

    ReplyDelete
  32. absolutely stunning! i wish i looked that good when i'm ill! it's still amazing that you were shortlisted! :) xo

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gorgeous photo of you all. I know what you mean about commenting - I only really comment if I feel compelled to say something! I do try to make an effort though :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. you look amazing! sorry you didn't win, but at least you had fun, even while sick.

  35. You look great, love your dress!
    I saw the Streets about 4 years ago.. they're not really my cup of tea but they did put on a great show! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  36. hello beautiful. I'm glad to hear you had a great time! you totally deserved winning aswell. And have lots of fun in Leeds whenever you're going. p.s. I've never really been a big commenter myself either.. though somehow feel a little bit guilty whenever I get readers to say such amazing things and I dont comment back.. So I started to comment on every single comment on every single post.. but that started to get really time consuming! you can probably imagine. now I comment back whenever a certain comment is somehow special:) or just a question I just have to answer back to.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well done on being nominated at the Cosmo Blog Awards! Glad you had a good time though, even though you felt terrible!

    I always do the same with the comments. I should comment back to my own comments and comment on others blogs but I don't often. Only when I sit there and say, right I'm going on a commenting spree. You've made a few of us think of this now and will be commenting more too!

    Lovely photo by the way :)

    xx

  38. That is such a lovely photo - all of you look so lovely! I was following the cosmo gossip on twitter, it sounded like you all had a great time. Also like the look of those cosmo cupcakes!! x

    ReplyDelete
  39. Would love to see more of your photos from the cosmo awards ! Everyone looks gorgeous. Hope you take loads of photos if you go visit your friend in Leeds x

  41. aww thats a great photo! you look fab haha, never would have guessed you were sick.

    ahh man, i'm not really a commenter either. usually because i just dont have anything exciting to say. and i hate those blogs where you have to fill in the security code because i can NEVER see the letters properly. in fact it's on my own blog i think, ooops.

    ReplyDelete
  42. all look gorgeous in that photo! wonder which blogs you'll comment on x

    ReplyDelete
  43. Saw The Streets play at a festival before and they were amazing, didn't expect it at all. You need a good rest from all this travelling about xx

    ReplyDelete
  44. Haha I must be the complete opposite blogger to you, I love to comment, I'm such a chatterbox!

    You do look very lovely is all the photos I've seen of the Cosmo awards, definately can't tell you're ill!

  49. Gorgeous photo! And great blog.

    Know what you mean about commenting, and like a previous comment said, it may seem as 'sucking up' but for the poster is means a lot and surely it helps make blogging friends. :)
