S’No Queen Thermals | Hotting Up The Winter Chill

At this time of year, you don’t need to jet off to the slopes to feel the chill.  As we move toward the year end, temperatures are dropping and snow is already falling.  There’s no escaping: winter is coming.   To be fair, I dug my thermals out way before Bonfire Night.  I don’t do cold.  So when the wind’s blowing sub zero winds, I need all the help I can get.  And let me

Bridal Lingerie & Loungewear | My Wish List

Wedding planning has found me in a place of lace trimmed lust.  With so many exquisite dresses, gorgeous headdresses and decadent lingerie, I could easily spend squillions on the most perfect and visually delectable outfit for my big day.  When your wedding is a once in a lifetime event, you can’t help but pull out all the stops. I’ve fallen for so much bridal beauty lately, it’s proving quite a task making any authoritative decisions!  I’m

Inferiority-Popularity Complex | Blogger Problems

I wrote this piece about a month ago, that I later decided I wouldn’t post.  This is what I’m like: writing is my therapy.  I go through phases of emotions and big life questioning that I’ll get over and may or may not revisit.  I call it ‘life lethargy’. Depression and anxiety does this to me, but it doesn’t mean the feelings I’ve had at any moment in time are invalid.  So I’m sharing it. When I first started

Autumnal Jewels | Freya Jade ‘Rio’ Collection

Do you remember your first bra?  Or how about the bra you wore for your dream job’s interview?  For something so insignificant to daily life, underwear has a funny way of imprinting memories.   I do remember my first bra (a set of two basics) and the bra after that one too (my favourite ever blue gingham bra).  Just as memorably, another bra stands clear in my mind.  I was first professionally fitted in my mid twenties with a full bust

Pudsey Bear Tights + 6 More Novelty Hosiery

It may be a little early for Christmas festivities just yet, but November gets us into the spirit of giving with our favourite annual fundraiser.  That’s right, it’s Children In Need!   Pudsey Bear is the iconic face of the Children In Need charity, and this year you can show your support by proudly displaying him on your pins! Pretty Polly has created a pair of Pudsey tights in their popular over the knee style, so you can donate

I Want a Wedding For Christmas

Weddings are romantic, exciting and a good excuse for a party, but next to house moving, getting married is also high up there on the list of life’s most stressful events.  So really, deciding to put a wedding on the cards before Christmas would be quite ludicrous.  And that’s precisely what I’m going to try and do.   I’ve been engaged for 16 years but in none of that time have my fiancé and I ever sat down and set

I’m At a Place Called Vertigo | Maison Close ‘Doux Vertige’ Collection

Lingerie is an exciting world because its existence serves more than practical purpose.  See it as merely underwear and you’ll only experience the tip of a beautiful, exotic iceberg that has the ability to take you places beyond the daily grind. Maison Close is one of my favourite brands for beautifully designed lingerie that is sensual, provocative and visually attractive.  The brand’s French heritage inspires an alluring mix of feminine chic with soft erotica, creating a stunning aesthetic

Panache Black ‘Aria’ & Fiore ‘Celia’ Hold Ups

Sexy lingerie isn’t prolific in the full bust market but thankfully there is a saviour in Panache Black.  The premium brand formerly known as Masquerade returns this season with a super hot collection including one of the most alluring D+ lingerie sets this side of Christmas. If you’re looking for the ultimate wish list treat, look no further.  The Panache Black Aria is a sultry little number that’s boasts class and femininity with a healthy dash of
