sunday portrait week 150



001. I've spent the weekend at home fixing and tidying! I have so much new furniture to sort out and some to get rid of(whats the best way to get rid of old furniture?). But it means all my things are organised and sorted which makes me so excited! I literally got rid of about 10 bags of stuff that I never use/don't need/don't want! I haven't event attempted to put away all the cardboard packaging from my Ikea stuff. Im pretty sure the bin men are going to hate me come Friday! Oops! I might actually do a room tour-ish when everything is perfect! Exciting!

002. I need some new bedding to go alongside all my new stuff, Any recommendations would be lovely! My room's sort of white, black and grey, but Im open to patterns and bright stuff when it comes to bedding!

003. One of my favourite nights of the year. Wrestlemania! I normally go home and watch it with my brother but I decided not to. I;m really looking forward to it despite not really knowing whats going on at the moment in wrestling. I really haven't kept as up to date with it as I should be! All I know is that CM Punk VS The Undertaker is the one. Zoe is coming over to keep me company, and I think we're going to pink Ombre my hair! That's right kids, I'm bringing the ombre back!

004. Sorry I couldn't make another video this week, my computer is literally dying and my new iMac still isn't here which is a pain in the bum! I really want to make a follow up to this week's "Alone, Together" video as I've had so many comments and support that I want to address. Im so glad I decided to do it, I normally wouldn't talk about something so personal but it's amazing knowing I'm not the only one who feels like this and being able to help people who are in the same situation! I also have loads of ideas for new videos for the upcoming week's so please go and subscribe to my Youtube Channel if you want to see more of me! Although three + blog posts a day, Instagram's and the rest means I'm pretty sure you're all sick of me by now!

005. Notable posts over on my beauty blog include a very cheeky Space NK Haul, a very popular lipstick swatch post with some of GOSH's velvet touch lipsticks, my "concealer power couple" and a quick look at the new Models Own Hed Kandi additions!

  2. Your hair looks so blonde here, Lily. I was in Primark yesterday and was looking at all the bedding and my boyfriend said 'LLYMLRS has that bedding'. Kind of odd but he always reads your blog over my shoulder and knows how much I love your blog.

  9. Recently re-designed my bedroom and now i'm INLOVE with it, definitely check out ikea for bed covers, they do throws & lots of mix-matchy pillows etc. And it's so cheap too! Either that or possibly Laura Ashley (little bit on the pricier side!) x

  10. Gorgeous picture! As for bedsheets maybe try a light or dusky purple???

  11. Ah I loved doing up my room and getting it all pretty and just the way I wanted it. I LOVE Urban Outfitters bedding but its just so uber expensive. I found some awesome little online bedding places and the quality is actually great and it washes really well too (wow, i sound so old talking about how things wash, haha!) X

  12. I always seem to buy my bedding from H&M, it takes a while to arrive but it's always really nice quality and you can usually get yourself a bargain if there are any discounts codes around :)

  13. It's the best to either hire a skip or take it to the dump! You could always sell it?

  14. Like some of the other commenters suggested, you could get bedding from H&M and perhaps also Zara! Cute alternatives to the usual Ikea stuff ;)

    Are you going to the AX Paris and Motel events on Wednesday? Would love to meet you in real life after reading your blog for so many years! :)

  15. You could give Gumtree a try for getting rid of your old furniture, or if you're not too fussed about getting money for it, give it to a charity shop or list it on Freecycle. I used Freecycle to get rid of our old sofa - it went within a day!
    Excited to see your pink ombre, you'd look lovely with any colour hair x

  16. Best way to get rid of furniture is freecycle. People love free stuff and will collect it and get it out of your way x

    ReplyDelete
  17. Try giving your clothes to a charity shop or a charity instead of giving it to a dumpsite, love the blog :D x

  18. Wow, Sunday Portrait #150! Looking forward to your room tour video :)

  19. You are so fit Lilz. I bought some quite nice bedding from Asda of all places lately, although the quality is not so fantastic. I also have a bunch of furniture to get rid of, I think my mum would probably cry if I freecycled it, but that's the best way if you don't really mind letting it go!

  25. I love refurnishing! I recommend posting your extra furniture as free/for sale on craigslist or on freecycle if you just want to get rid of it.

    I'm on the hunt for cute bedding as well, and I loved reading all the suggestions here.

  26. I've been cleaning out my room too! It just always gets messy again so easy though haha xx

  28. I've just bought new bedding from Tesco (online) - they had some really nice ones to choose from & was really reasonably priced - I specified online because for some reason all the stuff I bought from their website, was cheaper than it was in store. Might be worth a look..

  29. Zara Home do the most amazing bedding. It's a little pricier than Primark etc but it's so pretty and I figure that beddings something you use everyday so you can spend that bit more.

  32. Is the furniture is still useable? I posted on gumtree & had a homeless shelter come pick up my old bed and sofa just before I moved house (I checked their credentials before handing it over of course!) - it saves you having to pay for someone to come and collect it/getting rid of it yourself.

    For bedding I stick with Primark only because I usually have white or light bedding and I'm a mucky pup so it doesn't stay very nice long! John Lewis have some lovely sets ...although they're quite expensive!

  33. Please, please, please don't throw your furniture and other things you don't want away, it's such a waste. Please donate it to charity instead. A lot of charities will even come and collect the stuff if there is a lot of it, ask in your local charity shops. I donated a bag of clothes I no longer wear to British Heart Foundation in January and they sent me a letter last week saying that so far they had made £60 from the stuff I donated (and it really was nothing special). Think of what a difference you could make!

  34. You can put your old furniture on freecycle if you just want to get rid of it, hassle free! People will message you if they want it and come pick it up from your house :)

    Can't wait to see a room tour! IKEA and John Lewis are great for bedding, I love them both!

  43. Undertaker and Punk was the only good match at Mania. I was so disappointed but I hate Cena and Rock so I expected it to be bad. You should do a wrestling blog lol a girl who's a fan of wrestling sorta a rarity.

  44. Ahhhh lily I love your channel! Numerous things have given me inspiration over the last few months but your blog and youtube channel really pushed me on to have the confidence to post more on my blog and youtube.

    This may be a bit weird but I was in Marks and Spencers with my mum and saw this bedding and just had to post you a link to it! (bit sad that I looked it up, but hey).

  46. If you're in Clapham I think the British Heart Foundation furniture shop will come & pick it up, or Feecycle rocks. Also with your clothes /spare toiletries, please donate to Refuge or http://www.dressforsuccess.org.uk/ - it makes such a difference!

  47. This post is so informative and makes a very nice image on the topic in my mind. It is the first time I visit your blog, but I was extremely impressed. Keep posting as I am gonna come to read it everyday!Furniture Stores in Bangalore
