Managing Period Pain Without The Pill

I discuss periods occasionally on the blog because while menstruation is a ridiculously taboo subject to raise, it’s still a fact of life.  It may be a given that periods aren’t the most comfortable monthly experience, but it doesn’t mean you should be suffering. Ever since my first period I’ve had to deal with pain – tremendous pain.  And it was the kind of pain that was so bad I was put onto the Pill, and from then on I

Cleo Della For Feisty Fuller Busts

I’m loving what the lingerie industry is offering the fuller bust consumer these days but I can happily admit that it’s an area guilty of pigeon holing.  Heaps of ‘grown up’ looking lingerie can feel overwhelming, and frankly, boring.  Whoever said a larger busted gal can’t have the same fun that’s too often reserved for the sub Ds?

The Bridal Basque | Panache Serenity Collection

Bridal lingerie wants to be beautiful for your big day, but if it isn’t functional too, it’s style without substance.  Your design of wedding dress may allow you flexibility in your choice of bra, but exposed and low backs call for something undisclosed. The Serenity bridal collection by Panache is a continuity line that I happened to sample two years ago when I had a bridal photoshoot.  I reviewed the strapless bra in a 30GG where-as today I’m exploring the basque in a 30H,
