sunday portrait week 115



001. Another week down! Can hardly believe its already near the middle of March. When I was younger time used to feel like it went so slowly now it feels like it's constantly going faster and faster. I'll be old before I know it at this rate! Its starting to feel like spring summer now which makes me so happy! Today has been one of the nicest days since I moved to London so I've been chilling in the garden and finally sorting out my bedroom.

002. Been reading more of A Feast of Crows by George RR Martin this week, I got into A Song of Ice and Fire after (like most people) watching Game of Thrones on TV. Ive found the fourth book really hard to read as its a lot different from the last one but I'm determined to get through it to get onto the fifth book. Has anyone else read it?

003. I haven't got much to say about the next week, I don't have any plans as of yet. Might be off to Cardiff at the weekend to see some friends and watch the Rugby!

004. Put myself on a minimal spend diet for next few weeks. My bank balance is shocking, as are my current credit cards (0% interest guys, don't worry!), So annoying that I've had to dip into savings for various things so much recently as I could have done without: i.e. moving to London, my laptop breaking, my phone getting lost and having to pay for my holiday all in the space of two months. I know its ultimate white girl problems, and I am thankful I can actually afford this stuff but still its terribly frustrating when things like this spring themselves on you. Time to be a bit more frugal! Even though I think I've been really good recently wearing things that I already own and making the most of what I have, but makeup is my downfall at the moment!

005. My Boohoo Giveaway closes at midnight and I'll try and pick the winner in the next few days. I have kept as up to date with all the entries as I can but it will probably take a bit longer as I have to tally up all the entries into a spreadsheet.

  10. I agree, where does time go! At work it always goes so slow but whenever i'm off it passes so quick, not fair! I know how you feel about paying everything really close together, i'm kinda in the same boat at the moment with the website and my trip to italy soon and bills!

    You look gorge by the way!

  14. I always pledge to budget next month but.. there's just so much pretty crap in the world! I'll definitely be making a conscious effort next month though or I'll be going on holiday with zero money for food or anything else!
    I'm currently reading the first of the Game of Thrones books and it's a bit brutal but such a good read. Makes a change from my usual fluffy YA books!

  16. I had a similar problem with the fourth book. I found it really difficult to get over the change in the chapter titles from previous books (of all things haha) but it's well worth it. I'd recommend having the fifth one lined up when you finish it though. :)

  17. I try to spend less money for cloths and I hope it will work and you are right with the time - I hate it, to be haunest.

  23. Time is flying by, scaring me slightly as I have an insane amount of work to make my way through!
    I'm so poor at the moment so trying to enforce a spending ban but make up is also my downfall at the moment haha.
    I've got those books on my Kindle but haven't started them yet! x

  25. You look as nice as ever! It is mad the way the whole year is now starting to flash before our very eyes...it'll be xmas again before you know it! And it is a MASSIVE inconvenience when your laptop, phone, TV or whatever decides to break without any regard at all your feelings. Selfish appliances.

  27. I totally know what you mean about time going quicker as you get older. I think it's because we want to be older when we're young but now we're in our twenties we'd much rather not getting any older so it all goes so much quicker. :/

    Gorgeous pic btw! Your hair looks really flowy!

  34. Random comment but its refreshing to hear a blogger to talk about money problems and that you dont always have the money to buy new things all the time :) i dont see why its so taboo for bloggers not to mention how they pay for things.
    And dont worry i have so much owing on my credit cards due to unexpected things such as car breaking and holidays, you are not alone :DD
