sunday portrait week 119



001. Happy Easter! I've spent the day at home watching Two and a half men and Man v Food reruns on and chomping through a Easter Egg! I probably should have gone home to my Mums house this weekend but I decided to stay at my house! Who knows how I used to go back and forth between London and Ludlow multiple times a week as the idea of going on the tube for 25mins into central London now seems like a long long time to me! I have no plans for this week, I really haven't done anything of note for a few weeks actually! Im quite content with settling into my new daily routine. I've mentioned before but Im one of those people who likes to do the same thing at the same time everyday! i.e.: gym at 12:30-1:50 so I can be home by 2 to shower at 2:15 etc. That sounds a bit OCD but I'm not strict strict with the exact times, I just know if I don't get things done by certain times I won't have time to do other things in my day!

002. I keep getting asked for updates on my thoughts on the 30 day shred, and honestly it's going OK. I've completed the routine most days, I think I've missed two since I started. I'm doing level one and I do think it's a good routine if you're not that into working out. I've found it quite easy, but then again I do go to the gym everyday and I am fitter than I think I am. I've only really struggled with the arm exercises (my arms are so weak!). I have noticed an improvement in my overall tone since I started. Although obviously I've also been working out more at the gym too, so it could be a mix of the both. Its worth trying out though, Im moving up a level now and I'll keep you posted something on how I feel after that!

003. It's my birthday in two weeks! As if Im going to be 22, When I was younger I'd always imagined my life would be perfect and I'd lead this "dream life" by now! Oh to be a child again and not have to deal with adult things! But Im looking forward to it, Im not a big birthday person so I think I want to go out for a meal or cocktails. I've had a eye on going to Meat Liqour for AGES now so maybe this will be time to go!

004. I need some help internet people! I really want some new bedding for my room, My room sort of has a pink, white and a black theme and I just fancy another duvet cover as I had an accident with some nail polish and one is now destroyed! Anyone got any recommendations as to where can I get some nice bedding from?

  3. I find level 1 of 30 day shred easy but level 2 rather hard, so hope level 2 is more of a challenge!

  4. BHS actually have a really nice range with vintage-inspired prints, lots of choice and all in colours like you're after. Not too expensive either! xx

  5. I second the Cath Kidston recommendation, they have some gorgeous prints :) Hope you have fun at Meat Liquor if you decide to go there, I need to visit at a less busy time, the queue has defeated me before!

  9. I'm finally on Level 2, it's a bit more difficult, my arms are also very weak. I'm going to turn 18 in two weeks time ;) think we have 3 days difference (mine is on 23). I also need a new bedding, but I can't find anything that I like. x

  13. Well, I think so it depends on the size. I love this one for example, but unfortunately it's too big for me. :( I wish I could have it...

  26. I second the Ikea motion!
    They have a huge range, and it's inexpensive.
    If you wanna look online,
    Matalan is work checking out too.

  27. Ikea, Primark and TK Maxx all do affordable, LOVELY bedding! Most of my stuff is out of there and I find it difficult to get stuff to match my room since it's teal themed.

  28. You look so lovely in this post Lily! Not gonna lie, I spent most of my day watching Man v Food and throwing alternate Creme Eggs and Easter eggs in my mouth too hahah! I did the 30 Day Shred last summer and the first level didn't do anything for me, so I skipped to doing level two and three on alternate days which worked ridic well, lost all and more of my summer weight on that badboy! Hope you've had a nice Easter! xx

  29. I'm going to do 23 this year, and I'm not a birthday person too ... But what you said is true, dealing with adult problem sucks. With time we'll learn to do better =P

    Like Lauren said, try in Ikea.

  41. I don't know if any other H&M's do it, but 1 of the 3 H&M's in Oxford Street have a proper ''home'' section, where there is loads of pretty bed linen and stuff. You can probs look online there too :)

    ReplyDelete
