dress: monki (belted, xs)
jacket: primark (old)
brogues: primark (even older)
bracelets: black tied*
socks: topshop

I made a cake for one of my housemates birthday today! It was a rainbow cake! I was literally so chuffed with it, Im terrible at baking and the first one did turn out terrible but I gave it a good go and it came out exactly as I wanted it to! You can see some snaps of it on my Instagram (@llymlrs) or here and here! Other than that I've been catching up reviewing and photographing stuff for ETCLLYMLRS. It's come to the time when I need a good clear out my backlog of products and get up to date with all the stuff I've been testing out recently! I always get on a roll too and end up writing tons of reviews and notes in a day! I also never realised how hideous I am close up, I have bumps, lumps, spots and pigmentation that I never knew I had! Damn you SLR! WHY U SO HIGH RES!

  5. I'm probably the worst baker ever. If it's not out-of-the-box cake mix, then I'm screwed. Ahaha. I love that dress. Exactly the type of thing I've been wanting and buying lately. So nice. :)

  7. Having seen you talk about this on youtube and now on here, and having seen how awesome it looks, I just downed my glass of wine, ignored the guilt and broke my spending ban to go buy it. Oopsie. Cx

  9. I know I say this every time you wear it - in real life AND on this blog, but DAMN, that pleather jacket looks good! You'd never guess it's only from Primark!

    Also saw the rainbow cake on instagram. How did you manage to do this? I've never tried, but I'm sure mine would juste turned into a purply brown mess.

  11. Don't be silly! I was just thinking how clear you're skin looks! I need to stop spending all my money on clothes and jewellery and invest in skin-care and better make-up!

  18. Working the 'off the shoulder' look here Lily!
    I feel your pain with the skin pics, and my cameras not even that good! I really cringed at some close-up no makeup pics I took for a product review, in two minds whether to post them but it's best to be honest! Not everyone has perfect skin, it's nothing to be ashamed of! I just make sure there is always some Doublewear Light in my makeup bag!

  33. The dress looks so much better on you than it does on the website! Its hard to tell what the shape of it actually is though because of the heavy pattern. I really like it and might stare at it online for a wee while..

  34. Oh that is such a gorgeous print on that dress!
