Kelly Brook at Simply Be | 50s Midi Dress

With her killer hour glass figure and curves to die for, Kelly Brook attracts a huge following wherever she goes.  Her newest collaboration with Simply Be has been much anticipated and with fashion for curvy figures from a size 10 up, a partnership of dreams!

Dear Santa, I’m on the Naughty List

It’s Christmas Eve and all thoughts are on the delights Father Christmas will bring in the night.   But forget the usual fare in Santa’s sack, because this year you sent the sauciest Christmas list up the chimney, enough to make Santa blush.  A self centred list full of devilishly delightful, completely sensual and a little bit naughty lingerie. Often the most exquisite underwear comes from independent talent, and a beauty I have wanted to bring to the

Lonely This Christmas And No Comfort & Joy

Christmas comes but once a year – and thank heavens for that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a festive fanatic!  I love all the commercialism and ceremony that Christmas is; the music (I play too early), the baking (even earlier) and the mesmeric delight in driving past a street illuminated like Christmas trees.  But lately I’ve begun to feel disillusioned. Christmas, with its cracker snap of saccharin and smiles and peace on earth, also means copious amounts of stress and disappointment.  The

Red Hot Lingerie Part 2: Freya Ooh La La

  Red lingerie is considered one of the hottest outfits in your wardrobe.  From cherry to berry, red in all its hues can be an exhilarating choice of underwear beneath Winter’s layers.

5 Awesome Ways To Enjoy Your Period

Periods suck.  They make you cranky and touchy and a nightmare to be around.  And it’s a week full of inconvenience.  Do you or don’t you go swimming?  Have I got enough towels or tampons in my bag?  It’s all blood and pain – and depending how full on – tears. So no wonder we don’t exactly look forward to that dreaded date of the month. A duvet day with a Netflix box set is

10 Gripes Only A Blogger Will Understand

  Being a blogger is fantastic!  Your voice has its own platform to air your opinion on whatever matters in your world.  You get to share your passions and apathy for products and be part of an awesome community. But sometimes being a blogger is the biggest bitch.  You learn you’re a perfectionist as much as you’re a jealous freak, as sometimes nothing goes to plan, despite your damnedest to make it so. While the vast

Red Hot Lingerie Part 1: Kris Line Eva

Red lingerie personifies the femme fatale and makes a vixen of the most shrinking violet.  The firey hot hue is as alluring as it is intoxifying, increasing confidence and raising the pulse, making it the hottest choice this Christmas.  European lingerie brand, Kris Line, has a gorgeous red collection called Eva.  A deep claret wine shade accented with black stitching, Eva is sensual, glamorous and a little bit naughty. The soft cup balcony bra is the

I Don’t Match My Underwear And You Shouldn’t Too

In the glossy world of the lingerie brand brochure, models parade their perfectly matching lingerie set; a co-ordinating bra and brief, maybe a suspender belt too.  The message is clear: underwear is orderly and our knicker drawers better reflect that. According to a recent Ultimo study, a mammoth 85% of UK women wear matching lingerie sets. That means the majority of women ensure they purchase a few pairs of knickers at the time of buying
