I met up with fellow blog people Bel and Jess all the way back in October, so these have been sitting around for about 6 weeks now! I quite often feel like the old woman of the hills when we all hang out as I’m so old (Bel is actually the same year group as the first class I taught through to A-Level… which is bizarre) but whatever, we have fun!
I’m not actually sure what we were doing in South Kensington as it’s one of my least favourite areas of London; apart from the obvious draw of MUSEUMS it’s mostly just overpriced aesthetics. I have a feeling this is the day my boy was lecturing at the V&A and we were contemplating going… but got too busy drinking hot chocolates…? Or maybe we went solely for the pretty streets…?! I don’t know, it was so long ago! I’ve never blogged about something so far in the past!
I do know we went for tapas and then wandered around the residential area (or “pretty blog streets” as Jess described them) with about 20 minutes of sunlight left; talk about forward-planning. I’m wearing an ensemble from my “maybe keep, maybe chuck” pile, (does anybody else have one of these?) so a lot less put-together than the others!
After taking photos we went and sat in a cafe for about 2 hours and talked about appearance, the media and confidence issues (or lack of) whilst drafting out future blog posts. I’ve got about two female friends outside of blogging and never read any “female” media apart from a few blogs, so this sort of girl chat is very novel for me! I’ve now got a whole series of posts planned out (thrillingly titled “longer life-ish posts and stuff”) which is entirely based on suggestions from Bel and Jess. Thanks guys!
It’s so great having new blog friends! Please go and check out their blogs, they are both far more consistent and stylish then I’ll ever be. And if you have any suggestions for posts to toss into the mix then let me know!

That’s so great, to meet nice people through the blog! I met a great musician and girl in London, for one of her concerts and also in London, another great girl, with whom I “work” together on one blog and I even visited her in her country! So I get your feeling and yes, it’s amazing! I love SK :) because of the museums, as you said, and going to Hyde Park to roller skate :) Your friends are great, I loved their style! I am sure it was a great day, with hot chocolates and tapas :) and the conversation! Oh com’on, your style is great too! And even if someone says it is not, so what? It is your style and that is enough to make it nice, special and unique like you! Denisesplanet.com
Everyone looks so good! I would love to meet up with some blogging friends… hopefully I will soon :)

Ah I wish I could go back! Such a fun day :) You look so so beautiful too Laila xxx
I’m so glad you shared these photos, they’re so much fun! Although in the ones of me playing with my hair I look a little manic. Manically happy perhaps! I had SUCH a wonderful day, and I’m looking forward to reading your longer lifeish posts :) I really loved what you wore – you look cool and a little french. Hopefully see you soon xxx
