The Green Eyed Monster

Skirt, bag and cardigan: H n M, shoes: Topshop, belt: vintage, key pendant: Etsy


I hate moaning about work, but just when I start to think "okay, I can survive here another few months", something else happens that throws me off a bit.
On other news, the cat is still not "cured". The vet wants to do a blood test which costs £150 and I'm not quite sure what it'll tell us. He's started being extra scared of D now- he's never liked men, due to D's dad terrorising him for most of his life, but he seems extra scared now, and isn't meowing half as much (he's usually quite a talkative cat).

I am in fact, turning into a crazy cat lady. A reclusive life would suit me just fine right now.

  4. Eeh sorry to hear about that nasty colleague. How immature. That happened to me a couple months and I was so bummed - b/c I really do try to get along with everybody. It's amazing what people will say out of jealousy. Hang in there darling:)

    You look beautiful. The skirt and belt are absolutely amazing!

  6. Aww darling sorry to hear that things in the office are so catty, I'm sure the fact that you are so pretty and well dressed only adds more to your collegues jealousy :P

    Poor Bwackums, he must be so stressed and sick and tired of all the vet trips by now, the poor fellow :(

  7. Ach she sounds like a nightmare! I tend to find that people who bitch about their colleagues are deeply insecure - you should just smile and nod and pity her instead. She sounds like the sort of person that will lie to your face if you try and have it out with her.

  10. Thank you for your lovely comment! Can I just say that your blog is AH-MAY-ZING. I am now a follower.

    And that girl at your work sounds like quite a bitch. You need to tell her to just get over herself.

  14. Oh :( I'm sorry to hear about your work colleague. She sounds like a bit of a bitch, I think you should have a word with her... Keep it professional, out of hours preferably (so the nosey ones in your office won't be gossiping about who said what and taking sides) and I think you should just say to her that a few other colleagues had mentioned that she had said such and such, but try to remain calm.
    tell her that you both work there and whether it be that she is jealous or intimidated by you, she needs to realise that you have a job to do at the end of the day and you aren't there to make enemies! You don't have to be her friend (in fact, I wouldn't trust this girl at all, if she is the type to be nice to your face and then bitch about you to others- these types of girls need to be kept at an arms distance at all costs ha)
    Hope you work it out, you sound like you've been struggling with this girl a while which is a shame! try not to worry about it too much, if its a job you don't care about don't take it seriously :) Let me know how you get on, bets of luck to you! xx

    Oh and I love your necklace by the way!

  15. thank you for the comment. i think i'll definitely get a new one. oh i bet that was very stressful!
    ramble all you like, this is your blog hehe. i used to think like that at school and maybe still a bit at college, i think we all go through that were we say to ourselves 'only a few more months'
    oh i don't understand people like that, she seems most certainly jealous! if i were you i would just let her keep stressing and doing extra work. you just carry on doing what you do best and stay in your bosses good books and don't forget to stay close to your colleagues, even if they prefer her now once they realise all she does is bitch and moan they'll rather have your company. then hopefully your bosses will realise how unprofessional she is and sack her hehe. or i suppose you could just tell her and have a more professional approach to it.
    good luck <3

  16. oh no I am so sorry to hear about your problems at work. I can totally sympathize and it's so awful and stressful when these things happen. I think that it would be great to address the matter with your coworker and let her know that her actions are unprofessional and need to stop. She doesn't need to "like" everyone she works with, but she does need to learn to respect her co-workers. Best of luck, with your work & kitty cat.

    AND I also wanted to say that your outfit is adorable. xx veronika

  19. Sorry to hear about your colleague :( She sounds like a bitch, its quite obviously her with the problem. She sounds like a really insecure person and it seems the only way she can feel good is by trying to look down on people and vue herself as superior, which says more about her! Hope it gets sorted out for you though :)

    I love the picture of all the rings they looks so pretty :) x x

  21. Just stumbled upon your blog, but I love your style! The print on the skirt is so cute, and I love how full it is. Great look girl!

  22. Your FOTC comment made me laugh a lot, me and the boy were laughing at how bad we are at french and how the only words we know are the lyrics to foux du fafa haha! It's so catchy isn't it, it's been in my head all day hense the title! Love finding fellow conchords lovers!

    On another note, your colleague is quite literally a bitch isn't she. As hard as it may be, just try to ignore it because chances are she'd love the confrontation if you said anything and it would give her even more ammunition to bitch. It sounds like your other colleagues think she's a bitch too and the fact they've let you know shows they've got your back and they all know what she's like. It won't just be you, she'll be the type that has a problem with everyone!

    Lovely outfit btw dear, love the bag :) x

  28. I would totally confront your colleague about this. call her over or go out for a drink with her, or if you don't have the balls: send her an email and be sure to think about what you want to say and how to say it, so your message gets across in the most productive way possible. Tell her you find it hard to work with her in a peaceful and efficient way if you keep hearing her gossip about you to other people. Try to keep the conversation neutral and not to get personal with her, after all this is your colleague.

    Oh well, i've had my fair share of crappy coworkers too :D it'll pass!


    love your skirt and belt btw and I hope your cat is ok! I have 4, stupid cats always get me worried :(

  30. Your colleague sounds TOTALLY obnoxious! There are some people in this world who simply do not understand the basic rules of politeness/courtesy. You never did anything to her, so i cant imagine why she would do those awful things to you. But, the sun'll come out tomorrow. Anyway, super cute outfit and you look awesome in the photos! http://thearcenciel.blogspot.com/

  31. your belt is amazing! it looks so different and you can so tell just be looking at it that it is vintage!

  32. Ick - work dramas are never fun. There is never an easy way to fix it either - hey? I have been lucky enough to avoid that type of ick-ness, or leave the work place!! But you shouldn't have to leave to solve it.

    Hope it calms down soon!
