If any of you were a member of a scouting organisation growing up you'll surely remember your Barn Owls from your Tawny Owls.
For me, being a Brownie was a right of passage. Whether there was any need for me to learn how to make a fire when I lived in suburban Croydon was besides the point. My Sister was a Brownie, my Mother was a Brownie and therefore the tradition must continue.
Thus I was initiated into the yellow and brown uniform one evening, next to the fake toadstool and tin foil pond.
Beaver, Cub, Brownie, or Guide, the one thing we can all agree on is that the world of culottes is not a glamorous one. That is until Kate Middleton herself became joint president of the Scout Association and rocked up with the most glam of blow-drys to toast some marshmallows on the fire pit.
Yes, you heard that right, she even had a neckerchief, although I couldn't help but notice she was missing the all-important woggle.
In case you missed it, we're currently obsessed with Kate's hair (all over again) after she added some beautiful halo highlights.
Never one to have a bad hair day, Kate had possibly her best blow dry to date for her day of Scouting.
I think it's safe to say I've never seen such a glam looking girl guide. The fact that her curls retained that bounce in the outdoors is just testament to the hairspray she uses.
I'm gonna need the name of that asap Kate.
Maybe Kate should start a new blow-dry badge, I for one would have found that way more useful than my 'Crime Prevention' badge. I mean, can you imagine a 10-year-old girl in a yellow and brown uniform patrolling the streets? Yeah, there's police officers for that.
Not to mention my 'Weaver', or 'Hostess' badge, which might have come in useful if I was born in medieval Britain.
No, I'm fully behind a new blow-dry badge and would even consider rejoining if Kate was my Barn Owl.
