sunday portrait week 100



001. Neglected blogging this week a bit as I've been having way too much fun. London twice then a weekend in Cardiff with my friend for belated birthday celebrations! Thinking of staying at home all this week as I've got so much stuff I need to catch up with and focus on! I like being away from home as much as I like being home. Keeping busy keeps me going!

002. Placed a few major clothing orders this week in the search for a Christmas Dress. I dont want to leave it too late like I did last year and ended up running round New Look while working on Christmas eve buy 5 dresses in the hope one would look alright. It didnt and I ended up wearing a jumper and skirt instead! I want to wear something fancy and sparkly, but I don't want to wear something black for a change! I have my eye on this dress from New Look (and the name fits perfectly!) but I don't know if I'm going to look too Strictly Come Dancing!

003. On another Christmas related note PLEASE HELP ME DECIDE WHAT TO ASK FOR CHRISTMAS! I have no idea, I'm at a age where if I want something I'll just buy it myself, but when Im asked "what do you want" I literally draw a blank! So let me know in comments what your asking for! I know I'd like some heated hot rollers, a hair dryer and a overnight bag, but cant think of anything else I'd might want or need!

004. All JWLRY stuff will be restocked in the next few weeks as so many people have been asking so they can give them as gifts. All the individual rings will be back and the fives will be completely. I will tweet and post on here as the popular styles sell out really quickly!

  2. I think you could make the dress work if you 'grunge it up' a little! I know what you mean about Christmas presents, I took ages thinking of stuff I need! I'm asking for a new phone cover, some DVDs, Topshop shoes (as I refuse to pay the extortionate prices myself haha) and a few Shu Uemura bits!

  3. just ask for something you would usually buy if you were having a splurge and wanting to treat yourself to something nice and of certain quality :)

  7. Completely understand about the not knowing what to ask for christmas. My birthday is just before christmas and people are nagging me, I have no idea as like you I just buy what I want. I came close to asking for a hoover, now that is a sign of getting old x

  23. I want lush bath bombs, a nice mirror for my dressing table and some makeup brushes. I like to ask for things I would never bother buying myself, lush bath bombs are AMAZING! but I never go to the lush shop so Xmas is a great opportunity for me! Xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm exactly the same as you, I have no idea what to ask for for Christmas. I think if people buy generic things like 'bath smellies' then they can't really go wrong.

  25. I love the new look dress, it'd be perfect and it's look amazing on you!

  27. The dress is a pretty one indeed! I think River Island have a similar one too? and Miss Selfridge had a top version, but in black I think?

  28. I'm asking for some Lush goodies (as always), Anna Sui perfume, a faux fur coat and loads of baking stuff! but it still took me a while to come up with all that! x

  29. That dress is gorgeous!
    I always ask for new PJ's for christmas, and this year I quite fancy a lot of the beauty giftsets on Asos :D xx

  30. Lovely Christmas dress idea! I'm asking for a Cath Kidston DAB radio, because they're just beautiful.

  31. I love the New Look dress, have eyed up similar things for years and it's not a terrible price if the quality is nice in real life. I'm asking for a new pair of glasses probably but that's not much help if you don't need them?! I normally ask for things I want but are just a bit too much for me to justify splashing out on, but I am a student so that's most things!

  32. I love that dress, grey is always nice and the sparkly bits are just enough for Christmas but not too much that you'd resemble tinsel :)
    I have no idea what I'm getting for Christmas, my family are suprising me :/ I'm half intrigued half nervous

  33. i love the flapper style dress - i wish i could pull that off, it's amazing!
    as for presents, i am in the same boat as you. the 5yr old me would be shocked. all i can think of is a beach umbrella which a) i'll likely buy myself this week because it's so effing hot, and b) is not very helpful for you, in an English winter.

    i can only think to make an online wishlist for your favourite sites and send it to family members haha

  34. That New Look dress will look so perfect on you! And the portrait of you is so rocker chic. x

  35. That dress is really lovely, do it! Urgh, I don't have a bloody clue what to ask for for Christmas myself. If only it was as easy as it was when I was a seven year old with an Argos catalogue and a marker pen!

  37. Oww, Week 100 Lily! Hope you had a lovely time in Cardiff, I'd kill for a weekend away right now haha. I love the look of that NL dress too, would be sweet with thick, black cable knit tights to "dress down" (: xx

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think that dress would look lovely! I see what you mean about it looking kind of Strictly, but if you wore it with black tights and a cardi it would look great!

    I'm stumped with what to ask for Christmas myself, let alone what other people should ask for. ;) Sorry!!

  41. the dress is lovely, i'm in the same boat with christmas stuff, and what to buy people! i've asked for some gift vouchers so i can go choose some stuff and saves them the bother! maybe a spa weekend? or one of those crazy days out where you can be a rally driver..or go down a hill in a giant ball thing, hmm

    a kindle, if you dont already have one, and if you like reading of course..

    haha maybe im not the best person to advise =] xoxo
