sunday portrait week 121



001. Thanks so much for all your birthday messages! I had such a nice day in the end! Im not a big birthday person so all I did was get pierced, eat food and shop! I've been watching the London Marathon, I spent 3 hours in a trance watching the coverage on the BBC! I'd love to do it one day! The commitment and dedication that goes into running one is incredible, I'd love to do it for my friends charity! Tonight Im having a takeaway (Indian! yummy!), Catching up on The Voice and watching some films!

002. Like I said, I got a new piercing the other day! The ones I got are collar bone micro dermals! Here's a photo of them and an explanation of what they are here. If they don't reject I'll do a post on them! I'm very happy with them and so glad I got them done! Piercings aren't to everyone's taste but I like them, I hate when people say you're "ruining" yourself. Obviously everyone's entitled to an opinion but there is just no need to say something like that. I wouldn't even consider myself "ruined" that I have them! I have two facial piercing scars (unless I point them out, so many people don't even notice the scars)! It doesn't bother me that they are there, I don't regret any of the piercing I've had over the years! At the time I wanted them, and they meant something to me at that point in my life!

003. I've decided its time to change up my blog layout, I've had this one for a while now and it's getting a bit tired. Im one of those people that hates change so Im worried about it! I just want too add some more colour, a few more stylistic elements to the posts (like the block quote boxes I use) and maybe switch up the header! I realised recently that there are so many blogs out there that look so similar, even more so at the moment so I want something really new and different!

004. I need to catch up on my Google Reader, I feel like I haven't sat and read my favourite blogs for ages! I feel quite out of the blogging loop at the moment!

  12. Those piercings look amazing on you! I agree, your not 'ruining' yourself, everybody does their own thing, it annoys me when people judge like that! :)

  13. Each to their own, some people just like to complain!
    Love your blog!

  14. I'd love to run a marathon too. It's amazing how so much dedication goes into them.
    Your dermals look SO NICE! Don't take any notice to those who say you're "ruining" yourself because you're not. It you who's getting pierced and not them, so they shouldn't fret about it. It's your life and not their's.
    Hope you enjoy your takeaway.

  16. Aren't you pretty :)

    Glad you had a good birthday!

    Ah your piercings are so amazing, I don't think you've ruined yourself at all either, I think it's an ace modification! I really want to get 3 consecutive loops on the top of my ear, but can't afford it at the moment lol (sad times)...one day!

    I'm excited to see your new blog layout when it's all done!

  17. beaut picture lily! and i actually think your face piercing scars are really nice, haha, the one above your lip looks like a marilyn monroe beauty spot. can't wait to see the new dermals in an outfit post, bet they look lush with your long hair!

    looking forward to the new layout too x

  18. you look lovely! who cares what others say about your piercings, if you like them that's the only things that matters babe! x

  19. I love your piercings! I've always wanted microdermals below my collar bones but never got them done for some reason. Seeing yours made me want them again but my partner isn't too enthusiastic D:

    I think I've noticed your scars before, but it's never bothered me in the slightest. It bewilders me that there are people that get worked up about it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You look beautiful as always! The microdermals are fantastic, but didn't hurt? looks quite painful to me...Oh well, I hope you had a great birthday!

  21. I love those piercings, they look like they could have been painful though! Everyone has their own style, and who cares about scars - shows you have lived a little! Gorgeous photo, stunning girl x

  22. I had my nose pierced for a while and had to take it out and it's healed over now and there is only a really tiny scar, so I wouldn't worry about people saying 'oh, you're ruining yourself' because if you didn't like it you could always take it out! Looking forward to seeing your new layout! xx

  28. I totally agree about piercings. I have tiny nose and lip piercing scars but they don't bother me because I loved them at the time but just decided they aren't for me anymore. There nothing like as permanent as a tattoo.

  29. Be exciting to see what direction you go with the blog style I cant wait to see! As for someone saying you are 'ruining' yourself well thats just plain right rude. I totally agree with your point about having an opinion. Everyones entitled to one but I just think if you don't like something you dont have to say something plain mean to another person to get your point across. Just don't say anything at all. Sorry for the rambles.

  33. Beautiful! Ignore peoples comments about piercings! We can all same that about any thing thats just stupid. As long as you like them then its fine. Obvs some people just think every one should just look like clones of each other.

    Love you blog, been checking it loads you got such a cutte style! x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Happy late Birthday! Hope you had an amazing day :) x

  36. I love dermals, I really want them on my chest as I have two little symmetrical markings! I love piercings, I have both of my ears stretched to 16mm and my labret pierced as well as various ear ones. I'd love my septum too. I don't listen to all those stupid "you've ruined your face remarks" it's personal choice after all!

  38. Happy belated birthday, it sounds like a perfect day to me! I saw your piercing on twitter and I'd have never even thought of a piercing there but it looks so pretty! I didn't notice you had scars so you're right, name one person without at least one piercing these days anyways! Can't wait to see the new blog layout x

    ReplyDelete
  39. I feel the same about piercings, I had a nose stud that I took out a while ago because I was over it... but I will always have fond memories :) and I still want it back sometimes!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Love your dermals. I think everything would look good on you. I'm so glad you had great time :)xx

    ReplyDelete
  41. Happy (very belated) birthday! I think your new piercings really suit you, and that people have no right to judge and say horrible things like that. The only piercing I regret is my nose stud, as I've been left with some hyperpigmentation/quite a noticeable grey spot on my skin :(

    And I know what you mean about being out of the blogging loop - I'm sitting down now after weeks without reading any posts and I have so much to catch up on!

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOVE your new piercings! i've always wanted something like that but it kinda freaks me out how it's under your skin haha! i couldn't even handle getting my ears pierced so it's probably not for me anyway ha. your eyelashes look amazing in that photo by the way! xxx
