sunday portrait week 125



001. This weekend I planned to go to the Ballgowns: British Glamour since the 1950s at the V&A but I've felt really under the weather. Im a bit run down which doesn't help either. Instead I've spent the weekend at home, chilling and sorting out things in my room. Today I took a quick trip to Carnaby Street and went to Monki and MAC to pick up a few bits and bobs. I then over indulged at YO! Sushi Sumo Sundays so right now Im feeling very sumo-like!

002. Im so inspired by blogging at the moment. When I moved a few months ago blogging really was the last thing I wanted to do. I didn't go to events, accept products to review or, I struggled to even read or write blogs. Flash forward a few months and I love it again. Right now, I think Im more passionate about blogging and social networking than ever before. More and more I see myself posting 2-3 times a day on ETCLLYMLRS just to get that overflow of information out! It's exciting and fun and I really should make the most of the platforms I have!

003. My coverage of the H&M and New Look press days have gone down so well! Im doing more press days next week so I'll have tons of autumn winter stuff to post about. I'll have the rest of the New Look Autumn winter stuff up tomorrow! I do really love a/w so much more than spring summer. Im really struggling to find summer clothes I actually like that aren't hideously tacky!

004. If you haven't seen my hilarious email from my Mum about my lack of boobage then see here. Although she's right, I have a broad chest and small "breasticles" so Im really struggling to find bikini that flatters my figure! I really like this one and this one. I think the first one would suit me but the second one probably won't unfortunately! Any suggestions would be helpful!

005. The Kim Kardashian True Reflection launch I went to the other day was actually crazy! I do have some photos from the event but I wasn't patient enough to wait to meet her! I can confirm she does look like absolutely babe in real life and her makeup is completely flawless! I'll post a proper review of the scent and a bit about the event in the week!

  3. Both the links for your bikinis are the same :-)
    Also, I have the same problem and always go for a bra style or bandeau style top to balance it out :-) X

  4. I might be wrong but I think both your links are the same bikini.
    I feel your pain about a broad but flat chest! I'm on a weightloss mission at the moment but all that seems to be disappearing is my err "breasticles" to quote your mum haha. Sad times.

  6. I've found some really great, cheap ones on H&M, and surprisingly even found a decent one in Primark.
    I'd definitely go for bikini tops with cup sizes opposed to top sizes :) xx

  8. I wish small breasticles was my worry! I look ridiculous in bikinis as I'm rather 'well endowed' haha. x

  15. I'm going to the V&A ballgown exhibition on Friday - cannot wait!
    and as far as the bikins go, I have to same problem and find that the river island bandeaus look so good. Try and get one that is gathered by a bow in the middle as it enhances for a more curvy shape.

    Hope that helps :)
    small boobs unite!

  18. Hope you feel better after a little relaxing time. I hate feeling uninspired, but when little things add up, inspiration can come from anywhere. I find other bloggers to be inspiring to me, like you! Seriously, don't stop blogging, I love reading your posts!
    I've got some small "breasticles" as well. It's ok, the itty bitty titty committee ain't so bad sometimes. Those tops are cute, especially #1.

  20. You look lovely! I just bought a black one with lots of strappy detail on it from Topshop for £32 which I thought was great! (It's a dupe of the One Teaspoon Eagles Shadow one I think, which I LOVE!)

  21. Loved your coverage of the press days darling, I have something to look forward to for the autumn/winter months now. Also, I have the same problem in the 'breasticles' department especially having a flatish chest and big behind...bikini shopping can be a nightmare. But so many perks to not have boobage, mainly clothes look better on!

  22. Ah bless your mum! Bigger boobs are just as annoying. Bikinis are really hard to buy! I think both would suit you tho, the flowery one is adorable!

  27. I think bandeau bikini's always look good on smaller chester girls :) That parrot one is very pretty.

  31. I have the same problem with my 'breasticles' sooo frustrating sometimes! I love the second top you linked to x

  32. Same tiny breasts issue here I find that the strapless bandeau tops actually make them look (slightly) bigger and is quite a flattering shape of bikini top ! xx
