Photo Shoot | Castle Boudoir

Planning a photo shoot takes time, especially when there’s a variety of talent and contributors involved.  I hadn’t expected this shoot to take quite so long, going back several months to it’s initial conception, but when the day finally came to fruition yesterday, everything just fell into place.  Well, almost everything. The shoot of epic proportion started back in Autumn when the UK Lingerie Awards announced the finalists.  The “Boudoir Lingerie Brand of the Year”

Shabby Chic Bedside Table For Under £10

Ikea get a bad rap for their innovative but heavily design led products.  Fair enough, not everyone appreciates the sight of a moulded plastic seat, and flat pack furniture that takes a whole afternoon plus to count out all the parts and screws (and that’s before you’ve begun to fumble it together) isn’t everyone’s idea of fun.  But, if you’ve written off visiting the Swedish giant because of a previous purchase nightmare, you’re missing out

Review | Little Minx Butterfly Blush Suspender Brief

I wasn’t aware of Little Minx until I modelled for Hepburn and Leigh this year.  They’re an Australian lingerie brand that launched only six years ago who today are stocked worldwide by boutiques dedicated to providing quality product and most importantly – amazing design. The House of Seduction sent me a gift last month for my birthday which I thought was so thoughtful of them.  When I received this gorgeous Little Minx Butterfly Blush brief I

Review | Charnos Hosiery Boudoir Hold Up

Stockings are an obligatory staple of the boudoir photoshoot.  Despite once upon a time simply being the only option of hosiery before tights were developed, stockings still to this day are favoured by many.  In their multitude of varieties, modern day stockings maintain that original allure of the bygone era’s nylons, and epitomise the sultry sex siren look.  Stockings are glamorous yet have earned a naughty reputation, perfect for channeling a provocative style in a classical

Outfit of The Day: Kitty with the Blue Eyes

Why the term “feeling blue” came to be associated with low mood, I’ll never know.  For such a pretty hue it seems quite oxymoronic, when blue is a fresh glorious Spring sky, sunlight on crisp snow, a vibrant great barrier reef whose waters play host to beautiful and exotic species.  Surely this is far from a depressing colour. I’ve always admired the look of the blue eyed brunette.  The intoxicating allure of hazelnut hair contrasted

How To Wear: Straps on Show | Part 1

Revealing your bra straps has long been a fashion faux pas and pretty much drummed into women that it’s not lady-like to show your underwear.  Not that it’s ever been a rule I’ve stressed about adhering to.  As a magpie to colour, I’ve always enjoyed wearing a contrasting bra beneath camis and vests, adding a flash of colour rather than hiding away my underwear with invisible straps and nudes. Bra straps that are designed to

My Personalised Emma Bridgewater Mug

A few weeks ago I was excited to find out I’d won a competition, and the prize was an Emma Bridgewater mug!  Not only would I be able to choose the design but I could have my mug personalised too.  As someone who’s aware of the brand but never bought into it, I enjoyed perusing the range of beautiful handpainted earthenware.I do appreciate good design and quality, having used and continually purchasing Denby for over
