Photo Diary: The V&A and Natural History Museum in London

The Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum in London are two of my favourite places in the world. You can feel the old, powerful energy radiating from hundreds upon hundreds of pieces of History, all beautifully displayed in architectural heaven. 

These pictures were taken during our visit to the two museums a couple of weeks ago with our friend Eloise. They are located next to each other, easily accessible and hard to miss with their overwhelmingly beautiful architecture. Unfortunately the NHM was under alot of construction work during our visit, with most of the Museum shut off to visitors, meaning we didn't get to shoot our favourite area in the entrance of the Museum.

Casual Oversize Jumper

 This outfit is literally my everyday look. For work, I keep it casual and stick with jeans and jumpers, occasionally swapping my ankle boots for my docs. It's the easiest outfit to put together at 6am and works every time! My coat smartens the look up, with the sharp cut of my long tweed coat and Holly's one I'm borrowing here! I need to talk about these jeans though. I have always been a 32 leg, yet these ones from ASOS are wayyy too long and inevitably scrunch up, I usually hide this with my boots but after these pictures I'm more motivated than ever to alter them! This navy blue striped jumper from Zara is so unbelievably cosy, I feel like a content potato whenever I wear it.

 Happy New Year!!

Super excited to get back on the blogging track- We had the best couple of weeks back home with our family over the festive period, despite suffering from the flu and horrible homesickness (the one you get before you even leave home). 

We got a beautiful new Canon f1.4 50mm camera lens from our wonderful parents (thanks so much Mum and Dad!) for Christmas, which we put to use for the first time last week! Our blog photos hadn't evolved much for a good few years, we desperately wanted to get out of that rut. Our inability to improve our blog pictures was holding us back and weighing us down, making us feel like we weren't ever going to move forward.

La Redoute Jumper

Happy New Year all! Not only is this our first ootd post of 2017, it's also the first outfit post to be shot with our new 50mm lens. I'm so grateful that I finally have my hands on it, the past few months I couldn't help but notice all the changes our little blog requires. There is so much I want to change this year, from the theme, to a logo and header. I'm hoping to share more casual outfits and more film & television centric posts too!

Thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As I sit here listening to the beautiful soundtrack by Michael Giacchino and scroll through tons of fan art online, I come to realize that Rogue One may be my favorite Star Wars film yet. And for me, that's saying a lot. I've only seen it once (but plan on seeing at the cinema again asap) so I won't go into full film-graduate-analyzing-every-single-aspect of the film, but instead do a overall brief review of the film. Beware of minor spoilers!

A few magical gifts

Holly & I are currently back in England after spending Christmas back home with our family! Saying it was nice to be back home with everyone over the festive season is an understatement, even though we both caught the stomach flu that is causing an epidemic in France at the moment! That being said I managed to get dressed one day and create some blog content.

My Top TV episodes of 2016

2016 hasn't been the best year but it has had it's moments, specifically in TV. I've been a little behind on some tv this year, with some shows I've been meaning to binge-watch but just haven't been able to yet! (I will get round to watching West World and Peaky Blinders, I promise!) However I thought I'd put together a list of my top TV Episodes of 2016 from some of the shows I watch faithfully! Needless to say some of these short reviews may contain big spoilers so beware!
