Experimenting with a new layout of my Week in Photos posts, purely on account of the fact that it masks the horrendous quality of my photos! I've seen other lovely ladies such as Abby, Beth and Charlene lay out their photo posts in similar ways, so let me know which style you prefer. Would you prefer this style with more description? Maybe larger photos and less written detail?



Mama baked me a beautiful birthday cake with heart shaped chocolate decor and Irish Creme • Got back to Southampton to a fire alarm and real fire in our block and was stood outdoors (in the rain) for over an hour. Got indoors and made a ham and egg roll (: • March soon arrived and I got to flip my Audrey Hepburn calendar over • It was lovely and sunny, but still cold, on my 20th birthday • Blue skies :D • Whacked out some posing for blog purposes but this photo never made it onto the blog... • Went out for a beautiful meal at Prezzo with my beautiful girls (pictured here is Grace and Rebecca) • Bruschetta starter at Prezzo • Penne al Pollo Zafferano - OMNOM! • My flatmates surprised me with the most adorable and yummy birthday cupcakes! • A present from the Fashion girls ♥

How was your week? (:

  2. I like this way of laying out the week in photos - it's just a bit easier to see which description goes with each photo :)
    The cake your mum made sounds delicious and it looks so pretty as well! Getting a bit envious of all the good food in your life to be honest. Your hair looks nice with the front plaited :) x

  17. Girlie, I'm so sorry I didnt get a chance to say happy birthday on the day! Looks like you had some wonderful celebrations though :) I quite like your pictures being displayed both ways. Sometimes I make a mosaic thing and other times I like showing the full pictures better. No matter what, your updates are always awesome :) xx

  31. Rose: Mm it was lovely, very food and alcohol filled haha (: I think I've eaten enough cake to last me a lifetime so help yourself! xxxx

    Jade: Yeah I thought that too! It seems most people prefer this layout, and its much easier/faster to upload to the blog as well. Thanks lovely, my fringe just wouldn't cooperate when it was time to leave in the evening! x

    Meghan: Thanks lovely!

    Gem: Oh Gem, it was not good, our whole building was evacuated and I'd just arrived with my bloody suitcase, it looked like I'd actually packed and brought a suitcase downstairs! Thanks lovely, love the look of your zine/book for Uni btw, I keep catching glimpses of it over Twitter! xxx

    Kayl: Yeah I was going for that kind of concept! Glad you liked it (:

    Rachel: It was really pretty and tasted amazing! Homebaked cakes are always nicer!

    Phoebe: Thanks sweet. Mm it is a bit! Think I'll be keeping this style as it seems quite popular (: xx

    Krissy: Yep! Thank you lovely, my birthday was nice except for a 9am lecture haha!

    Sarah: It was just lovely thanks hun!

    Lily: Thank you! The cupcakes were beyond good, so so yummy! x

    Belle: It was really nice, a cute chilled affair aside from Monday night which was a bit of a mad one! Lovelove my little umbrella necklace, I believe it was from Accessorize (:

    Gem: It was so perfect, a really relaxed birthday which was all I wanted! xxxx

    Cherry: I know what you mean, think I'm going to stick to this style now that I've tried it out, it seems quite popular from what I gather through the comments!

    KLEE: Thanks sweet! I don't always like to ramble on in these posts because I feel like I do that enough in my other posts haha (:

    Courtney: Thank you sweet! xx

    Ayden: Oh that's quite okay Ayd, you're a busy lady! I think I prefer this layout ever so slightly more, it masks the grainy quality of my photos and is a bit easier to see! Square photos make a nice change too!

    Heather-Lou: Thank you! I lovelove my little necklace aha (:

    Keyta: Thanks!

    Beth: Thanks for the feedback, I do think it works out easier this way, so much easier to upload as well! xxx
