Winter Sales – Lingerie and Lifestyle

It’s always a sad time when Christmas Day has passed but you can look forward to the winter sales for a bit of retail therapy.  This year has been a terrible one for rain and nothing else, and for what must have been the first time in absolutely ages, it rained on the big day.  Even now, on New Year’s Eve as I write this, it’s bucketing down and sounds completely rotten coupled with the

2012 Reflections

With 2012 drawing to a close, I can’t help but think it’s been a really quick year.  I turned 30 back in February, a milestone I’d long been dreading.  Now with only a matter of days before we toast in 2013 I look back and realise now it’s not been as bad a year as I’d expected it to be.  I haven’t suddenly aged, I haven’t popped my clogs and the world hasn’t stopped turning.

My Christmas

 I hope you all had a joyful and peaceful Christmas Day followed by a relaxing Boxing Day (depending on whether you were nursing a festive hangover or hitting the rush of the sales).  I spent the past two days with various family including parents, siblings and little ones, so it’s been a lovely time catching up, having a laugh and exchanging presents.  This year I had Christmas cakes and several handmade items on top of

Festive Red Lingerie & Cleo Marcie Review

Red lingerie must be the most gifted shade of underwear.  Not surprising, considering men love to buy it for their special woman in their life and women feel pretty darn good wearing it.  Red lingerie defines seduction and luxury and as such deserves to be given the gift wrapped treatment on more occasions than Valentines.  Being a fantastically festive colour, Christmas is the perfect excuse. With only a few days to go until Christmas Day

Stars & Rabbits

I’ve made it fairly obvious now that lingerie and small furry animals are both my passions.  Discovering new bra brands and going giddy at the sight of a new season bra is all very well exciting, but I have to admit that the sight of a cute bunny nose and pair of fuzzy rabbit feet will always tease a wider smile out of me.   Back in 2009 I had a photo shoot myself where

Perfect Christmas Stocking for Bunnies

I love spending time with my animals.  Guinea pigs and rabbits have been a huge part of my life for over 20 years, yet in all that time, as much as I mollycoddle them, I’ve never bought them Christmas presents.  That probably makes me sound incredibly hard nosed and selfish or, that I’m actually pretty sane and everyone who succumbs to pet stockings stuffed with rubber Christmas crackers are the crazies.  Either way, it’s something

A Cosy Christmas Shop Window

Christmas is the most special holiday of the calendar to me.  There’s little about the festive season that doesn’t make me feel warm and fuzzy inside; adorning the house with a beautiful tree, baking the compulsory celebration cake and spiced cookies in the run up to the big day.  Listening to Christmas music from the carols to the classics is as mood evocative as the scented candles, but what must be one of the most

Large Cup Budget Buying Guide

If you’re fortunate to be of ample bust, you’ll know all too well the misfortune that accompanies such a blessing, and that’s the sad fact that large cup bras aren’t particularly cheap.  It’s frustrating to walk into all the trendy high street clothes shops and see a beautiful array of affordable lingerie only to find they stop short of the larger cup sizes.  It’s even more disheartening when you require a smaller back size because
