The Gallery: Through the eyes of my phone

This weeks Gallery theme is "through the eyes of my phone" I take loads of photos on my phone. You can generally tell if I'm a bit bored as there will be lots on my instagram feed.

I take pictures of my boys, the odd pretty flower, and if I'm out and about in a shop and see a toy that I think the boy's might like, I snap a photo. I can then bring it home to show my husband so that he can tell me that they don't need anymore toys. I also take the odd selfie. Most of which I never upload to twitter, facebook or instagram because I look awful. I mainly do it to pass some time and see what I look like. Yes I know there is an old fashioned thing called a mirror that I could use, but with instagram you can play with filters in a hope it will make you look slightly better.

It is with regret that the last selfie I took is photo (and yes I have cropped it and used a filter in a effort to make it look better!)


Last year, my brother and sister in law likened me to Sarah Millican. I wasn't that overjoyed because as lovely as Sarah is, I would have rather been likened to a 20 year old model. (I know, I know it was never going to happen was it?) So on Friday when she was on the TV I took a photo of myself next to Sarah. The conclusion? If I straighten my hair and have an inch cut off, I may have a career as a celebrity double!

So who do you look like, or who do people say you look like? Are you in need of a Sarah Millican look a like in the Berkshire area? I'm afraid to say I can't do a Geordie accent and I'm not that funny.

  2. Ha ha, love it! I was watching her the other night and thought exactly the same....only you're better looking (shhh, don't tell sarah!). I've regularly been stopped in the street to be told I look like Sandra Bullock - now that made me happy! I mentioned it to my kids the other day who thought the idea was simply ridiculous!

    1. A little unflattering! I look terrible! Poor Sarah Millican would be offended to think we looked similar in that photo.

  8. lol great photo - be a great job as a celebrity double! I have been likened to Rennee Zellwegger (as Bridget Jones) and Kim WIlde (in her slightly younger days!). I think everyone looks a bit like someone famous which is quite spooky. xx

  15. Totally loving your take on the theme! Maybe that right there is a new feature: photograph yourself infront of your celebrity doppelgänger!

  18. We watch Sarah on Friday night too, & the exact comment Rob said was "Doesn't Louise Fairweather look like her" I told him never to say that in front of you but as you've brought it up............Not sure I look like anyone famous, but have been likened to a back end of a bus. xxx

  19. You do look quite similar!!
    I wonder who people compare me too "/ x

  20. oh my goodness you are alike. Beg to differ on the 'not that funny' comment, this post really made me giggle!

  21. Yep - sorry Lou! I see the resemblance! :-D I used to get likened to Jenny Powell years back, not sure about that now though! :-D

    Awww thanks. I find that if I have had 2 glasses of wine I think that I am as funny as her - when actually people are just laughing at me

    I think the photo of Sarah that my brother and sister in law were referring about was on a bus - hopefully just the side!

    Thank you! Even if your theme has caused me to publish one of the worst photos of me EVER on my blog!

  27. I can see the resemblance....lol I could do the geordie accent for you...hehehe x

  28. Ah, I love this, and yeah, if you squint with one eye, and don't look out the other, you do kinda look like Sarah Millican!

    ReplyDelete
  29. There's definitely a resemblance there! When I was younger people always told me I looked like Bjork, I even got into clubs for free because of it.

    Haha - yes, I can see it! I hate photos of myself, too, but you can at least have that career as a double -)

  31. Great post! You can sort of see the similarity although I do think you look younger and slimmer. I've been likened to the cartoon of Emma Frost(!) and Elizabeth Shue - for some reason!! Thanks for linking to PoCoLo x

    ReplyDelete
  32. Definitely a similarity. It's rare to be able to get such a good comparison.

    I wasn't impressed when a former housemate (we were all at the pub for a night out at the time!) reckoned I looked like Barbra Streisand. Hopefully when she was younger although I can't see it myself

  33. I can see the similarity. I was likened to Gail Porter once lol

  34. There is defo likeness there....... and that is a very good shot! X
