sunday portrait week 110


 winter is coming...

001. Such a lovely and busy week! Had so much to do and loads of fun events. Ate way too much food, drank alot of alcohol and saw some of my favourite people. Love being in London as I get to see all my bloggy friends. So weird going from not seeing my real friends (as they have mainly moved away) Got a few events this week coming too including a Estée Lauder one and a MUA cosmetics one! Talk about opposites! Excited for both though! Today has been a complete write off thanks to the snow, It was just one of those says where all you want to do is stay in the warmth of your bed!

002. I didn't mean to post yesterday's post on here. I usually save the photos posts for etcllymlrs (which is sadly being neglected right now! Sorry!) but I didn't want to repost it! Dont know if I should continue putting them in here or not. I like to keep this blog purely outfits (which are lacking too!) but you know! I know I keep saying I'll stop slacking and blog but Im terrible!

003. Was asked alot about the MAC pro card in the comments so I thought I best address it on here for everyone. I went to the mac pro stall at IMATS and they just offered it after saying we were bloggers not students or MUA's (who were being offered the card). It was £25, and I don't think actually offer them to bloggers normally. I can't find anything online related that relates to bloggers getting discount. So I think it may have been a IMATS one off. I remember a few years ago you could just buy pro cards at IMATS. But yeah, I don't know the official word on it and I'm not going to question it now I have a slight justification for the amount of MAC use!!

004. Does anyone have a white iphone? What case do you have for it? Im finding it so hard to find an appropriate cover for mine as all the ones I currently have just aren't looking right. I really like these Jolie Petite but Im not sure! Any good handmade phone case makers as well?

  1. I have a white iphone. I'm currently using a case that looks like an old school gameboy which I think it's pretty cool. I also have a clear quilted one which is very nice too

  6. I have a white iPhone and I used (until last night) a ridiculously impractical embellished case that I bought in Singapore but it obstructed the camera flash and I couldn't take it anymore!! To be honest I'd just have no case. I always left mine naked until late December and nothing bad happened to it :)

    1. my oldcase was one of those bejewelled ones and it used to reflect the flash and make photos look so weird!

  10. My white iPhone is dressed in a pink Kate Spade silicon case that I got from the Apple store at Christmas. This one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/misscherie_xx/6612074335/ With that and a screen protector film, my phone is perfectly protected.

  16. I love the iphone case you linked to. I usually like to keep things sleek and simple but occasionally you just have to splash out on something cutesy and tacky. I have an adorable white one with a 3d jewelled Dumbo on it complete with little yellow hat <3

  45. Ahh, adorable photo! I have a white iPhone and I have a 'tall owls' case from Paperchase which I absolutely adore (can't find the link, unfortunately). However, I have noticed a lot of little hairline cracks in it even though I keep my phone in a pouch too and am very careful with it, so I'm not sure it's the best quality!

  52. To be fair a friend of mine said she was a student (didn't specify what in) and got a Mac Pro card at IMATS last year! I think they are less fussy with the rules there as they know attendees will have a keep interest in make up!

  60. Hey, i'm a blogger but i also do phone cases as a past time, i do kind of vintagey style ones more than the cutesy kind of ones but i have plenty of colours and designs that would look lovely on a white iphone, i as of yet only have one photographed on my blog but colourwise it's probably more what you'd want anyway, anyhow, if you're interested let me know! :)
