A Few Of My Favourite Things: March 19th

This week has passed in a busy/work-filled/exhausted blur but here's what I've been enjoying:


1. A Gossip Girl inspired "OOTD". This got me a few strange looks from those who have probably never heard of the show. I bought the top when I was in Australia but this was the first time I'd worn it as since getting back to the UK the weather has hardly been cropped-top friendly. The denim shorts are from George at Asda.

2. I blogged about my surprise delivery from Aussie last week and yesterday I used the Lusciouly Light, Luscious Long condition. Like all Aussie products it smells amazing - I think this one smells slightly less sweet than the Aussome Volume range which I've used in the past. The conditioner is a pretty egg shell blue colour and it instantly detangled my knotty hair. Unlike a lot of hair products I could still smell the fragrance while I was drying my hair and for the rest of the day. I've been wearing my hair in a messy/wavy look lately and this conditioner didn't weight it down or make my hair feel greasy (my ultimate conditioner fear as I only wash my hair twice a week so super rich conditioners are not for me!).

3. An amazing lunch at the Natural History Museum - chicken wrap with mixed bean salad and winter coleslaw.

4. I visited the Natural History Museum last week, hadn't been for about ten years and had a really lovely afternoon wandering around the museum. I did biology for A Level and back then it was my favourite subject so it was nice to get reaquainted with my inner science-geek! I really liked the exhibit on optical illustions and memory and the Earth galleries were really amazing, the earthquake exhibit felt particularly poignant in light of the recent Japan tragedy.

What have you been enjoying this week?

Don't forget to check out this post to find out how you can join in the Aussie fun!

  3. I love the Natural Histroy museum but I haven't been for ages. I normally go to the V&A and sometimes the science museum in South Ken so next time I must go see the NHM.
