I want to start by saying a big "thank you" to the people that leave me sweet comments and compliments and to those of you who are really friendly on Twitter too.

I set up a Formspring form after I saw a couple of other people doing it and I thought it would be a nice way for people to ask me questions that they might want to know but hadn't wanted to ask directly. I didn't expect to receive a comment saying "Why do you talk about your dogs so much? It's so boring." Not only is this comment rude and annoying, it's just totally unnecessary and disrespectful. Why do I talk about my dogs so much bright spark?? Well, my blog name is Lily loves Lola and it's not a coincidence that my dogs have the same names. I am not just a beauty blogger - although I do love makeup and beauty products. I blog about everything.. whatever I'm up to.. and my dogs are a huge part of my life.

I'm not great at shrugging off criticism and it takes a lot of courage for me to post personal photos on here and talk about my life. I don't have much confidence and I constantly worry that people will say mean things about my photos or the way I look. 

If the person who wrote that comment is reading this, please unsubscribe and don't bother me again. You ruined my day and to be honest I would rather you didn't read what I have to say.

  1. It's your blog and you can talk about whatever you wish. I love the doggies. I would put more pics of mine up but they dislike having their photo taken.

    Do not let people get you down. x x

  4. I just "tweeted" to say well said - but I'll say it again - Well said - but please don't let the sad horrid person upset you!

  5. I've received mean-spirited comments on my blog in the past too, and I know how much of a negative effect it can have on your self-esteem. But my advice would be to ignore it, I know it's easy to say and not so easy to do - but the hundreds of views your blog receives each day is testiment to the fact that people enjoy reading what you have to say, whether it be about yourself, makeup or your dogs! And this is YOUR blog, it's YOUR space to write whatever YOU want, so screw that insignificant (and anonymous - quelle surprise) comment.

  6. You don't deserve that at all! Your blog is there for you to write about whatever you want and I really like it when you mention Lily & Lola.
    Don't let them get to you

  8. Some people have nothing better to do eh? I think there must be something subhuman about these people that dont understand the bond we have with our dogs. We get so much more from them than they do from us!!

    Just let the comment slide and keep up with your lovely tweets, great blog posts and being your gorgeous self.

    :) xxx

  10. It's a sad but seemingly unavoidable part of putting yourself out there. People can be so incredibly vile but it just seems to come with the territory :( Brush yourself off. ignore and remember you have hundreds of followers who love you and that far outweighs the few hateful gimps xx

    ReplyDelete
  11. that's really mean :( don't let them get to you. as a fellow animal lover, i get where you're coming from and your dogs are absolutely gorgeous. keep up the good work with your blog, as it's a great read x x x p.s. have more confidence in yourself, you're a stunner!

  12. Sorry to hear you've been getting horrible comments!
    Ignore them, I love reading about your dogs :) they're so cute and adorable

    ReplyDelete
  13. This is the problem with the internet, the people that hide behind the anonymous comments and just post hurtful rubbish. I hope karma comes and bites them in the ass, I love your blog and personally like hearing about your life as I can get to know you virtually.

  14. Sorry to hear of the completely unneccessary comment you received. I don't know why people do it, presumably it makes them feel better about their pathetic selves, to hurt others feelings. I like hearing about your dogs - keep it up! xx

    ReplyDelete
  15. I hate people who cant say things too you on here but can on something where you cant find out who they are. I love hearing about your dogs & ignore the stupid people out there, you have alot of of people who love reading what you write & dont let them get too you! XO

  16. People have a choice in terms of what they want to read -- this person is clearly ignorant and jealous that you have such a strong readership. You know we love reading your posts -- all your posts!

  17. aww this is just awful, you don't deserve that at all - don't let idiots like that get you down, you've got a lovely blog with hundred of followers who love you and your dogs too <3

    ReplyDelete
  18. Honestly, people who hide behind "anonymous" comments to say hateful things aren't worth worrying about. I closed my formspring today after some nasty comments too, it's too open to abuse.

    Don't let them upset you, and, whatever you do, don't let them dictate what you write about. Your blog, your rules!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Compleely agree with what people have said. This is your blog and you write about whatever you want to!! They dont have to read it!

    I absolutely love your blog and your dogs are adorable!!

    Dont change a thing!

  24. Hi hun..part of the reason i love and follow you is because you have more dimensions to you than just shallow talk..i love hearing about your poochies, and those that dont just need to click unfollow!!its true tho..we always remember the bad things that people say never all the good and lovely comments..ppl can be so nasty!! xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. people can be pricks when they're anonymous, but don't worry about what the idiots say. you're the one with over 600 blog followers, filled with people who want to read what you write and find what you have to say interesting. and for the record, i love hearing about your dogs. xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't understand people like this - if you don't like it, don't read it! I have 2 doggies too and they are a big part of my life and a blog is a place to write about things that matter to yourself, not to whoever's reading it! I hope this rude comment doesn't put you off blogging, for every 1 mean, bitter person out there, there are 99 more nice ones :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I cant believe someone would take the time just to leave negativity. I love your blog and your dogs. I hope who ever it was doesnt bother again, that kind of negativity is not needed. Kally XO

  28. Oh honey. I'm sorry this obviously insecure, jealous person upset you. People are so brave behind the computer screen. I've been a member of a few forums and the abuse that goes on can be astonishing, but just remember - these people don't exist in your world, so don't give them a second thought.

    I like to think we develop friendships with fellow bloggers as we follow their progress. These are the people whose comments matter. Listen to them and ignore the rest. You are lovely and your dogs rock my absolute socks!

    Hugs xxx

  29. Since when was there rules about what you should talk about, they must be extremely jealous.

  34. I'm sorry that people were being rude! They are just jealous... It's your blog and your space to write whatever you want. I love your doggies & the story of how you got them. Keep blogging about Lily & Lola because we loves it :)

    Boo you haters.

  35. I cant believe someone would write that, at the end of the day its your blog huni & you can write anything you wish, dont let people like that annoy or upset you, easier said then done sometimes I know what its like I take things very personally too xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  36. That is so pointless! Why would anyone even take the time to write that?? Dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Some people can be so disrespectful, you can talk about anything you like hunny, don't worry about what others say :)
    And your dogs are the two most adorable things ever, i love it when you do posts about them, i'm a new follower but i'v been reading like every post you have of them hehe xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love reading about Lily and Lola, I love doggies!! :) How dare they say that!!!

    I'm sure after reading all these comments you'll realise how much people love your blog and what u write about hun. The person that asked that question on Twitter obviously lacks in life and love and wanted to feel "big and powerful" in some way. But the reality is they are just sad and pathetic!!!

    Luckily most of our blogging community are lovely genuine happy people, and they are the ones that matter anyway.

    Lots of love to you, and of course L & L :)

  39. Pay no attention.
    You are beautiful, you have a successful blog, hundreds of people like you and want to read about you and your dogs, one arse'ole has no right to put you down in any way.
    Chin up hun xx

  40. Oh my god! That is so rude! I would not worry about them, they are obviously jealous and inconsiderate.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is a great example of why I think this formspring thing is rubbish.
    Well said, my lovely, shrug it off as best you can. And personally, I'd like to see MORE of Lily & Lola - can't get enough! X

    ReplyDelete
  42. Good on you for telling them where to go! I hope they feel stupidly embarassed now, whoever they are. People are horrible and jealous and bitchy, and I hope you dont let this get to you too much :( Its hard to build up confidence in the first place, never mind then getting it broken back down again. Honestly love, its great hearing about your two little girlies and dont let any idiot tell you otherwise :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  43. Great picture to sum up what I'm sure we all think of the idiot that said that!! How bloody rude!
    I for one (along with everyone else who has commented I'm sure!) love reading about your gorgeous dogs!

    Ignore them, carry on and don't even satisfy them with another minute of your time.

  44. haha nice pic, and I like your dogs!

  45. I dont understand why people feel the need to be so rude via the web. I doubt theyd ever say that to your face. And if they think that what you say is so boring, why are they reading it, and taking the time to comment it. Imagine how boring they must be! I just happened across you blog, and I think its perfect, poochies and all!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Some people are so rude. Do they not realise that instead of upsetting someone they could just click 'unfollow'.

    Don't worru about it hun, I love your blog as do many others (as you can see!) so keep up what you're doing.

  47. I cant think of anything braver than putting yourself out there AND sharing yourself with strangers. I believe most people are kind and have a good heart - others well - see picture in post>> lov ya and your little dogs too. kristi

  48. dont let people like that bug you, blog about whatever you want whenever you want! X

    ReplyDelete
  49. Agree with Alix above, I bet they wouldn't say it to your face!

    They obviously don't know how amazing pugs are!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't understand why people take the time to actually write mean comments - why bother? Does it make them feel better to hurt other people? I believe that the route of all evil is jealousy! Underneath it all, they will have been jealous of how successful your blog has been in such a short space of time. Your dogs are gorgeous and so are you! x

    ReplyDelete
  51. OH BOO! if someone doesn't like you talking about your dogs, why do they read the blog in the first place?! and why take the time out of their day to comment on it?! just cock off quietly miserable commenter...we heart lilyloveslola x

    ReplyDelete
  52. Every once in a while some loser will crawl out of the woodwork and inject a little negativty into the blogging community. As you can see from the volume of lovely comments, idiots like these are, thankfully, the minority.

    Sod them - we all LOVE your blog and look forward to reading whatever you have to say :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  53. That's horrible Victoria. Keep your chin up, I hope they don't bother you again
    xx
    PS. Your blog is great and your dogs are blimming lovely x

    ReplyDelete
  54. That wasn't very nice of them, thye should respect whatever you want to write about on your blog, if they don't like it they just shouldn't look at those posts. Don' worry! I like your doggies :-) xxx

    ReplyDelete
  55. Just ignore it, you can write whatever you like on here, it is your blog afterall. I'm not part of twitter but have heard from around the blogs that it's becoming quite a bitch fest, i wouldn't bother with it to be honest...

    Hope you're feeling better today xx

  56. Don't let a comment like that bother you, I love seeing photos of your dogs! I've tagged you on my blog.

  58. Uch that's so mean! Cowardly people, hiding behind their computers to throw insults. I'd take it all with a pinch of salt.
    FYI.. I think you are gorgeous, and a such lovely girl too! Chin up :)

  59. Ahh...it's just stupid people with no life!
    BTW, I love the fact you write about other things and not ONLY make up!!!Dogs, cats, apples- i don't care, keep doing it! Honestly I get bored reading about make up all the time- it's too much!so it's refreshing to see a dog's face!

    I do have to admit that sometimes i cut it fine because i am naturally a nosy person i can ask a question & it can offend even though it isn't meant too if you know what i mean :s lol

    ReplyDelete
  69. Your blog is fantastic! Don't let people put you down.
    I'm also a bit wary of putting pictures of myself up, I don't want people to put me down because i'm VERY self concious.
    You are very beautiful, and I find your blog really inspiring. It also helps that I can look at you for inspiration as you have similar hair colour and skin tone as me- so thanks!
