sunday portrait week 111



001. Went out last night with my house mates which was pretty good, We went to a bar in Central but thought it was a bit crap so ended up coming back and going out in Clapham. Today we had a hungover Sunday, got a MASSIVE Dominos order in and watched the Rugby! I may have actually just put make up on purely for this photo but I haven't done a proper one in a while so I decided to put some effort in!

002. I've honestly not given any thought to the fact its actually Fashion Week, Its come so ridiculously quickly! I have no idea about the clothes I'm going to wear or what shows I've got tickets for. I need to sort my weekly schedule out asap! Its also Valentines Day this week (sob!) and then I also have a really cool thing with Forever 21 on Thursday (I'll reveal more tomorrow!). Looking forward to seeing the ~Fashion Week crowd~ at the weekend though, I really dont get to see Gem enough!

003. I have a contest running on my ETCLLYMLRS blog for LG Motion 6 in which you can win £200 Topshop Vouchers for showing a outfit inspired by movement. Actually a bit sad I havent had any entries yet! I know its a bit more effort than most giveaways but it'd be great if you entered, espeically you're a fashion blogger, or even just a casual snap twit pic-ed and hashtagged! Its an amazing prize! I could sure do with a £200 Topshop Voucher!

004. Cant remember if I mentioned it or not but I got through to the ASOS Future Stylist competition round two! I've been styling my second look and finally decided on the look! I'm really excited about this one as I love my outfit! Its a bit different for me but its really cute! I still haven't picked the winner of the first giveawat but I'll do it as soon as I've posted this post!

004. I need some advice, I really want to buy a Celine Smile Tote, but I cant afford a real one, I'm tempted to get this real leather one that has been on my eBay watch list for SO long! I think I'm going to get the black suede one as its really gorgeous! Decisions!

  19. You should definately get one, a Celine look-a-like bag I mean, the black suede is gorgeous! I've had one on my watch list since before Christmas too, but haven't got round to buying it yet as I'd really love a real one, but of course, can't afford it. Let us know if you do buy one though, I'd be interested to know if it's good quality, the one I've been looking at is slightly cheaper as it's not real leather and I'm slightly dubious about buying imitation bags from ebay as I've not done it before.

    Here's the one I've had bookmarked:

    I also have nad hangover today! That's the worst thing of clubbing on Saturday nights! But it's worth!

  23. I bought the faux leather version of the celine smiley tote and it's not that structured like the real one (http://www.scheine.co.uk/2012/02/thefeline.html) but i bet the real leather one will be much better! I'd love to see what it's like if you buy one!

    Excited to hear about this Forever 21 news :-D x x

  33. I can't see the link you posted but I have a Celine rep of that bag and I have to say its gorgeous. I think you will love the style.

  34. I saw that picture of your dominoes from instagram and it was impressive! I was so jealous!

  35. The bag is really really nice! I bought a PU leather one from Romwe as it was the only place I saw a bag like this and it was with a discount, so I got it for quite cheap. It is black and has some snakeskin structure or whatever and is of really good quality.
    But then, I wouldn't mind a real leather one which is also a bit bigger so I am considering the black/beige one.
    If you want to see the bag from Romwe, check out my blog, I posted a pic of it (and no, I am not asking you to follow or anything, just to take a look at the bag).
    I wished I could enter the competition but for a certain reason I can't, so I hope you will have many people taking part.
