Boux Avenue Leeds Opening #1 – Press Event

Last week Mr BB and I ventured down to Leeds for the grand opening of Boux Avenue‘s 18th store in the White Rose shopping centre.  We were invited to the exclusive press event to meet owner Theo Paphitis and check out the glossy new store.  I was really excited to be one of the first to set foot through the doors. On arrival we were welcomed by two very glam looking Boux Belles wearing gorgeous

Thrifty Living – 30 Ways To Save £1

It’s the great British £1 coin’s 30th birthday and to commemorate Money Supermarket asked for ‘30 Ways to Save £1‘.  As much as I love spending, I live for saving.   My bargain obsessed brain had a free work out thinking of this little lot to hopefully save you pounds!   From beauty buying to keeping up with the trends, here’s a range of thrifty tips and all the savvy techniques you’ll ever need to save you loads of cash: 1.

Boudoir Lingerie – ‘Danielle’ by Parfait

Lingerie falls into two categories, broadly speaking, in my opinion: there’s your everyday bras and knickers that are comfy and practical (your uncomplicated ‘underwear’) and then there’s the more superior pieces that earn being called lingerie.  The latter is the desired; the fabrics that make you feel great as much as they look fabulous.  They make us feel that bit more special and they cheer us up just knowing what we’ve got hidden underneath.  We

Satchels Were Made For Me

I love bags and always carry one with me. I feel naked without one.  Having a bag was a natural progression from having my school bag growing up so when I was finished with school I moved onto an ‘essentials’ bag.  There’s always so much I need with me such as my purse, phone, diary and not least a choice of lipbalms. In a multitude of colours and varying styles I’ve always had at least

Faith Extreme Platform Boots & Discount Code

Like many women I’m a sucker for a good shoe.  Admittedly, my shoe of choice these days resides around a flat sole; I love a good pair of ankle boots and when the warmer weather lands it’s time for open ballerinas or lace pumps.  The heels I tend to buy are either for nights out, smart occasions and my modelling work because as much as I like the look of them, my fibromyalgia aches and

Love Yours Lingerie By Caprice

For a woman as widely known as supermodel Caprice it shouldn’t come as a surprise that her name would one day front a lingerie brand.  Interestingly, and unlike models before, Caprice Bourret created her own lingerie business – By Caprice – putting to work her knowledge of the fashion industry and it’s trends and utilising her strong business sense to successfully build the only lingerie brand marketed, designed and modelled by the supermodel herself.  Now

Swimwear for Spa Days

So, it’s decided (I decided) that Mr BB and myself are overdue a spa day.  I haven’t been to a spa for three years now and I’ve never been with the other half before, so to say we’re overdue it is an understatement.  I’m looking forward to swimming in the pool, chilling out in a jacuzzi and sweating it out in a sauna, and some treatments would be rather nice too, such as a massage

Some Bunny Loves You – Rabbits in Fashion

Okay, I admit it, I stole that line from the one and only Playboy purchase I made of a t shirt solely because of the rabbit related wording.  I’m a real bunny lover and I like to wear my heart on my sleeve, or rather, my rabbits on my clothes.When the new 3D Alice in Wonderland came out a few years ago it was great.  There was suddenly an influx of white rabbits clutching watches
