Confessions of a proud loser.

I have a confession, I am a loser,
But in a lovable sense, I'm proud of it.
I love learning, and history, I'm also embarrassingly obsessed with Made In Chelsea.

This is where today's post comes from, I had the best day catching up with my friend who I hadn't seen in 2 years! It's crazy, however due to get going to boarding school, me to uni and her living in Hong Kong during the holidays...we managed 2 years!
Our plan was to chill out in Hyde Park, but alas, the English weather did not agree. So my ultra cool suggestion of the Natural History Museum was finally accepted! Now, as I said..loser.
I love museums, I never tire of them.
Being in such close proximity of London meant that growing up I toured the museums every summer with my family, and now I'm the one that drags everyone else haha!

Unfortunately, my friend wasn't so enthusiastic about the museum, so we sat in the cafe for hours catching up and chatting. The museum's free and undercover, perfect!
During our hours of chat, we ended up on the topic of Made In Chelsea...and frozen yogurt!
Obviously the frozen yogurt was more exciting at this point, so we went to a place called Snog. What a clever name.
Now as well as being a loser, I'm also a child. All of the marketing for Snog, was "I fancy a snog" "I could do with a snog right now" etc etc. Maybe it's just me, but I found that incredibly funny, and clever marketing! Like, I won't forget it any time soon!

Anyways, whilst waiting for our frozen yogurt, we decided on an adventure...an adventure to Chelsea! Just to feel like we stuck out like sore thumbs and we were very poor compared to everyone! Haha, that's the fun of it right?
So thank goodness for google maps...it may have taken me a very long time to figure out where it actually was, and the fact we had to follow the blue pin...you can imagine how awful an awful person with no direction is, times that by 10 and you get me!
Chelsea actually turned out to be fun, everyone looked posh, and like they 'belonged'. We attempted to find a shop featured on Made In Chelsea, and despite using 2 maps, we still had no idea. Im really not blessed in the directional stakes.

Since my friend had to go home, I decided to be the ultimate loser. I went to look round the museum by myself. For me, it's fascinating, like all the fossils and the history. How privileged me are to get to have all the articles and know all about the ancient times I find it all very exciting haha!
Although to be honest, after about 20 minutes I got too bored on my own haha! Will have to drag someone else there soon!



It's a beautiul building! Even nicer when it's not raining haha
The awesome dinosaur that stands in the entrance.

For my little London adventure, my OOTD:

Dress: New Look Kids Section
Generic Tights
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins
Belt: Dorothy Perkins
Shirt: Primark

I started writing this on the tube and a woman casually came an sat right on top of me, like literally. Why do people do that? When there's a whole lot of space...but they feel the need to encroach your personal bubble. How odd. Also, when I got on the tube, I put my iPod in and it was pretty loud but I couldn't be bothered to change it...then my iPod decided to play Busted....and then the tube went very quiet! Hope everyone in there all enjoyed a little Busted in their lives ;)

How are you lovely lot? Do you share my love of museums?

Love, Elizabeth xx

  33. I LOVE the Natural History Museum, I need to go back! You have to visit New York's National History Museum. It's beyond amazing you could literally spend all day in there. A place called Snog? Brilliant!
