Here are a few more photographs from my birthday on Thursday, I'm standing in one of the pieces from the new Architects Build Small Spaces exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. This beautiful structure, titled Ratatosk, can be found in the John Madejski Garden. I adore the organic shapes and juxtaposition of the smoothly cut and natural textures of this piece. I also love the fact that you can touch and interact with all of the pieces in this exhibition, which have been dotted all around the museum. I haven't exlpored all of the structures, but oh my, there is the most wonderful wooden tower, titled Ark, which I shall go into detail about another day! This exhibition has free admission for all, so I recommend you have a visit, and perhaps pop by the Grace Kelly: Style Icon exhibition whilst you're there.

Me and my dear friend Shana-Kaye, in the V&A gift shop, which is truly an exhibition in itself! Neither of us told each other what we were wearing prior to meeting up, so I think it was rather wonderful that we both ended up wearing the same colours of black, grey and silver.
Here's what I wore today, you have seen most of it before, except the men's tee from Primark, Asos over the knee stripe tights, and a Starbucks tumbler, all birthday gifts from my mum. My mum and I only popped out to do the charity shop run and treat ourself to a Starbucks, as we were both feeling very lazy, I ended up buying a lovely satchel in my favourite charity shop for four pounds and a vintage St Michael lingerie lace vest for a pound. I'm off the the V&A tomorrow (surprise, surprise) to attend a meeting, more on that tomorrow! Love, Jazzabelle.

  12. I love artworks that allow for audience interaction. That one you're standing in looks incredible, and the exhibition in general sounds awesome. Pity I'm all the way on the other side of the world, haha.
