sunday portrait week 135



001. Im so tired today, Although today has literally it's been one of the laziest days of my life! We went for Brunch at a Cafe in Balham called Milk (which was awesome, I highly recommend it!) and then we went to Byron for dinner in Clapham Juction. I promise I do eat at home, but when you live in one of the most amazing cities with all these yummy food around you its hard to resist the urge! In-between all that eating all I've done is lie on the sofa and drink tea. Cant wait to pop my onesie on and get some zzz's! I've been out the last couple of nights enjoying LDN life though, Including fun times watching the Olympic Ceremony in Shorditch and then a big night in Clapham!

002. I've been trying to upload a Youtube video all day today but it's just not agreeing with me. My internet is really temperamental at the moment so it's going to be a challenge when the file sizes are so darn large! I don't know how some Youtubers do it! I'm gonna leave it up over night tonight, but if it works my hair "tutorial" aka a really lame excuse for a everyday hair routine video will be up! If you missed my last video on my Models Own nail polish collection you can watch it here!

003. Olympics fever has well and truly struck London! I sort of fear for my own safety trying to leave the house this coming week! I don't like how busy London is most of the time but I think "the Games" has made me even more paranoid. I've noticed that my diary is unusually very quiet for the next few weeks. Well planned I suppose! So tempted to go home and stay with my family back in the countryside for a bit!

004. Planning on treating myself to some new boots this week and I think I might actually cave in and buy the Office Night Hawk Boots. I've wanted them for literally YEARS now and after seeing them at their A/W Press day (photos I still haven't got around to editing!) It seems it might be the right time to go get them. The weather has completely turned in London today. The sun we had when I came back from Turkey last week is a distant memory! My mind has gone from thinking about summer clothes back to my A/W wardrobe already! Crazy!

  4. You look so beautiful in the photo, I'm away from London, as I hate it when it's so busy. I always avoid it, but on the sad note, I will be back next week. You should go and spend some time with your family if you can. x

  20. lily i recommend getting a program called handbrake which compresses video files and makes uploading time just about halve - thats if you dont have a compression program already. xo

  24. I live in Scotland so can safely watch the games from my own TV :) But I went on holiday and passed through Terminal 5 and could see just how much more mad London is for the Jubilee and the Games. So many union jacks in one place! Never see them in Scotland.

  25. As exciting as it is with the Olympics, I can imagine being in the midst of it permanently could be a bit much! I'd probs end up cowering in the corner of a pub, refusing to move. Not such a bad thing?! Cx

  26. hey lily, I know you are probably busy with other important things, but you know what, I really miss the five to follow in your sunday portraits. ´cause those where always amazing blogs and in this fashionblog jungle nowadays it´s difficult to find beautiful unique blogs...so yeah, maybe you´d like to do that again at some point... :) xx

  28. The Olympic stuff was insane on Saturday, i was getting my keys for my new place in Bow and it's right next to the stadium took like three hours to get there, madness! I wanted to ask your advice on moving to London too, would love to hear your experiences of it. x x x

  31. Mirror Sunglasses are available in several different designs. The sunglasses most frequently worn by police and military are Aviators. This style received its name around the 1940's and 1950's when they were popular sunglasses for military pilots.

  32. Mirror Sunglasses are sunglasses with a reflective optical coating on the outside of the lenses to make them appear like small mirrors. The mirror coating can decrease anywhere from 10%-60% of the light that passes through and makes contact with your eyes.

  33. The grinder that is used to grind the lenses to the specifications of the prescription is called an edger. There is a constant source of water running over the lens while it is being ground in order to reduce the heat caused by friction on the glass.

  34. Sun damage may strike at any season, whether it’s summer or winter, so it’s wisest to always wear sunglasses whenever we go out. It makes for an awesome fashion statement too!
