Following on from the pastel houses, the pastel outfit. I realise I'm blending into the door a little. D and I went to the Science Museum- I've literally not been since I was a child. It was also quite strange walking around South Kensington (where I went to school from 11-18) as a lot has changed, it's got even swankier if that's possible.


My blog was also suspended for about 36 hours (thanks Google). Still unsure why, apart from if they were offended by my comment on Claire's blog about Michael Fassbender's state of undress in Shame..

The lovelies Maria and Katie tagged me for a blog award, and as I was too lazy to think of seven facts last time, or tag anyone, I shall this time.

1. I enjoy meow conversations with my cat. There are different tones of meow, depending on mood and time of day. What do the neighbours think? Don't care.

2. I have a weird phobia of going too near the edge of the platform on the tube. I have to walk around someone going near the wall every time, just in case they nudge me as I overtake them. D walks quite brazenly over the yellow line..

3. I was such a geek between the ages of 16-18, very much obsessed with Lord of the Rings (as in the books mostly, and the other works of Tolkien).

4. I've recently been told I look like Millie Mackintosh from Made In Chelsea, I don't see it myself (especially as I don't have blonde hair).

5. I was also told I looked like Audrey Hepburn, which I much prefer (I don't see it myself..)

6. I don't cross the river in London if I don't have to. North London forever. Apart from the odd jaunt to New Malden on occasion.

7. I really can never think of anything interesting to put on here. So people will think I am quite boring. Tomorrow I'll no doubt think of something hugely entertaining.

I tag: #GOLLYGOSH , Almost Delightful , Hat full of sky , Beautiful Clutter . Because they have nice blogs.

  3. The colours in this outfit are so pretty, I am always jealous of your coat! The meowing at your cat bit made me laugh, you're not the only one who does that you know!

  5. I sometimes go to the science museum if I'm skint (oh why does January have to be so long!) I love the interactive games there, but whenever I go there are always so many children there and I can't push them out the way to get to them! Your manager sounds a bit scary, I don't know about you but if I ever receive e-mails like that it knocks my confidence a bit, even though it shouldn't! On the tube, I always get worried about walking around people too, I try walk around people by walking near the wall but sometimes it's so busy and you can't go around that way! Thank you for the tag, I will try to remember to do this and incoporate it into my next post. Ps, I love your dress, it looks lovely on you :). xo

  7. I love the neckline and waistline of the dress, the colour too!

    The Science Museum is brilliant - I went on a school trip there as a child and have been fascinated by it since - brilliant way to spend a few hours!

    P.S I shall have to think of a few facts :-)

  8. I love that dress of yours and have always liked that fur coat of yours, can I borrow it :)

    I don't understand what your manager emailed you about. Could you clarify it for me please so I can understand better. I would never be friends with a manager on facebook let alone accept emails from one. Don't you let him upset you, you are such a sweetheart. You have to tell him straight that you will not accept his attitude towards you and that he should be more professional and leave his moodiness at home.

    What did you write in the comment on this blog about the Fassbender? To suspend your blog that for that long, boy that would have killed me :(

    Hope your well otherwise me dear.

  14. I haven't been to the science museum for so long! I always end up going to ones in central London as I'm too lazy to travel all that way, aha. Oh, I was a geek too (still am, really), and loved Harry Potter and Doctor Who xx

  19. That's nuts! Did they even warn you that they were going to do it? I did try and go on your blog and was greeted with 'this blog has been removed'! O_O I thought you were gone forever sob sob ;) hehe. I was going to delete my blog this week actually!

    Your manager sounds like a bit of an arse hole. I HATE it when people say 'ohh i'm horrible sometimes but that's just me!' That's absolutely NO excuse to be mean, it's like homophobes/racists who are like 'I speak my mind but that's just me'. It really irks me! He had no right to treat you like that, you're an adult not a child for goodness sake! Ooopss sorry for the rant >_< I just greatly dislike mean managers!

    Thnk you so much for your kind words :D you are so sweet Rachel! You look glorious in that dress! <3 <3 <3 xxx

  32. The Science Museum is beautiful I also love V&A museum. I agree North London is the best thing I only like to cross the river to go to batersea park, the Tate and borough market :D (best coffee ever in there) I love the dress, the colour is lovely and I love how you pair it with the black ties and tan shoes ;)

  34. Haha! I too have meow convo's with my cat! I could not do this with my old cat as she never meowed at anything, she was just strangely silent!

    As always, I love your outfit and photos, beautiful!

    I don't tend to cross the river anymore since moving to North London. I lived so central before that and I was always bombarded by tourists! Not anymore yay! Haha!

  36. I'm never sure I should do pastels in winter as I think I'll look too washed out. Gonna give it a try now though! Oh, and your manager? Shouldn't be a manager if that's how they communicate...Just saying ;)
