After saying in a previous post that I avoid crossing the river, today saw us take a trip to the Imperial War Museum, another museum I haven't been to since school. There's so much to see, we only took in WWI and WWII exhibits and the Trench Experience (which I don't remember being so smelly when I was little).

Tonight I'm going to the pub with the Spanish people I used to work with at the Latin American charity, as one of them has got himself a job in Seville, lucky thing.

I cannot wait to get paid on Tuesday, though I'm so into my overdraft there won't be any mad spending sprees (honest). This has been a long month!

  9. The pattern of that blouse is wonderful. I've been resisting the temptations of clothes shopping too, although I worked an extra 6-7 hours for the stock take the other week so if I do find a little something I won't feel as guilty :P H&M is calling my name!

    Your hair looks really pretty too, I tried doing that with my hair but it never seems to work out right. Have a great time down at the pub!

  19. A job in Seville? Jealous!

    I was reading up on the war museum last week, I may have to give it a go - it sounds like you enjoyed it

    I love your outfit too, bird print is one of my favourites :) xx

  20. I love your bird print top, I need one of those in my life! I barely venture south of the river (well, that's a bit of a lie, I sometimes get the jubilee line to London Bridge or Waterloo, I like it there, but more often than not I am north of the river. But I love the Imperial War Museum, and I agree that the Trench Experience is really smelly, it smells to me like horrible rubber or something :S! I hope that you had a nice time at the pub :) xo

  38. i just did quite long blog lurk and you have such good style. i like all the black mixed with the candy colours! following you immediately :) this blog is making me miss london x

  39. This is too funny. They say great minds think a like. I was inspired by the Jill Stuart campaign which reminded me a lot of cotton candy or and candified Barbie expo. So I did a blog post about it and tried to incorporate the pastel idea into my nails like you did. I don't look as fabulous as you do in pastels though so I'll have to stick to the nails idea.

  53. thankyou for your lovely comments on my blog! I thought I was already following you as Ive read your blog for a while now but apparently I wasnt :/ - am now though!

    Love this outfit and the way youve styled your hair - I love the milkmaid braid but my hair never seems to want to let me do it - do you use any product beforehand or?

    1. Hehe thanks <3 I don't use any products but it's best after 2 or 3 days or not washing your hair so it holds better. I put in hairspray afterwards.. xx
