My name is Lucy and I am a science nerd. With a job as a research scientist and four degrees to my name, there really is no disputing. I am a nerd. I was recently advised to start blogging about my scientific research in order to get my ideas out to the greater research community and found myself thinking how I would much rather be blogging about my desire to have afternoon tea with George Mallory and Marc Bolan, my shallow love for Alexander Wang handbags, which Led Zeppelin album is the best or how I secretly fancy John Steed, but apparently that won’t further my career. And, I see no time soon that the Natural Environment Research Council is going to start funding me to conduct research on the merit of carrying the Kirsten vs. The Rocco.
Granted, I am a scientist, but, the reality is that I am a girl in my twenties who subscribes to Vogue, can waste hours wandering Selfridges and Harvey Nichols and has an unnatural obsession with silk scarves. In other words, like many my own age, I love fashion.
With the impression that I could put down a deposit for a small house using the silk scarves I own (which is probably the main reason why I am still renting!), I thought what better way to counterbalance the nerdy science blog than blog about something so light and colourful and fun. So, here I begin my musings of a silk scarf devotee.
