On Monday I had a wonderful day off sandwiched in the middle of eight shifts at work. I was determined to get out and about and so Jian Wei and I set off to the British Museum to see the Vollard Suite Picasso prints. The weather was grey and spitting at best and so we scurried through the rain to the shelter of The Breakfast Club in Soho to enjoy a pile of pancakes slathered in vanilla cream, sprinkled with fresh red berries, dusted in icing sugar and doused in maple syrup. For someone with a tooth as syrupy and saccharine as my own, this lunchtime treat is an incomparable heaven - after all, my name even means 'sweet'. After refuelling we took a bus to St. Paul's from whence we walked to the Tate and wandered around the Edvard Munch exhibition. We then strolled down the South Bank in the drizzle and 'made the best of it' in the uniquely British way.
I really liked my outfit for this day out, I felt as though it really represents my current tastes and style and I intend to use it to help me reduce my wardrobe by two-thirds. The plan for my next day off will no doubt include eBay listing!
