Dress, Jacket and bag: Primark//Ballet flats: New Look//Necklace: Monki

You're in for a big surprise. A little walk through Hampstead Heath that started in the sunshine and ended with rain (obvs). We tried to get ourselves lost but kept coming across little landmarks, and finally got to Kenwood House for a welcome cuppa, cake and meringue.

The Casa volunteering is still fairly dull- being on reception taking the odd phone call and booking appointments isn't very entertaining, nor is pretending to do work when someone important shuffles past. However the online cultural magazine for the Latin American diaspora (Ventana Latina) should be working out- I'm a member of the team now, and can be called the Marketing Coordinator which sounds quite nice...

  32. What a gorgeous outfit! I can't believe what a deep, beautiful red that dress is - it seems sort of unreal, and If I wore it, I would keep getting distracted and staring at the fabric. I love this natural setting, too; it sort of tells a story of its own.

    I'm sorry about the volunteering but marketing coordinator sounds pretty cool! I am the queen of pretending to do work/look interested in said work when someone important passes whilst trying to sneak donuts and on one occasion champagne into my mouth >_<
