Wedding OOTD: The Lindy Bop Bride Haul

They say the fun is all in the wedding dress shopping, and it’s true!  While I had a vague idea what type of dress I wanted to wear on my big day, I had a fantastic time Pinteresting ideas for my dream dress, and I found it pretty quick.  But as much time I spent dress hunting I’m pretty sure I spent even longer shopping everything else in my wedding wardrobe.  A personalised vintage style became my

12 Things That Happen When Trying For A Baby

Trying for a baby is mental.  Literally.  I thought it was easy the first time.  Came off the pill and wham bam, the following month I was pregnant.  Of course I ended up miscarrying, and now it’s all back to round one again, but this time with a whole new level of want.  It’s a matter of urgency.  And of course, what you really, really want, you just never get that easy.   If, like

Curvy Kate Portia: Pretty In Pink

If you took a look through my lingerie stash you’d probably be surprised by what I own.  ‘Basics’ in black, white and skin tone are considered the mainstay of any underwear collection, but a neutral colour palette just isn’t my cup of tea.  While some of my essentials are, out of necessity, pretty basic, I find colourful lingerie so much more fun.  Sounds kinda corny, but I feel like I’m wearing the essence of happiness when my bra’s an

Trends by nature lead from the catwalk down to the highstreet, so designer brands at the luxury end of the market tend to be at the forefront of bringing wearable, covetable fashion.   I remember the front cover of a glossy magazine last summer where a super model was wearing an amazing two-piece; its botanical pattern leapt out at me.  It was bold yet delicate and pretty, and I vowed I needed it in my life.

In The Deep: Curvy Kate Instinct Bikini

All too often I hear the same cry repeating: “you can’t get nice swimwear for bigger busts”.  It makes me want to burst out even louder – you can!  It doesn’t mean every brand caters for us bustier girls but it does mean there’s some really fabulous brands who do.  Curvy Kate is one of them, and if you didn’t know they even did bra sized swimwear then you’re in for an immense treat!   Curvy

Kinky Knickers : Lace Lingerie With A British Heart

Kinky Knickers first appeared on the blog three years ago when the company behind the brand – Headen & Quarmby – were starring in their own tv programme.  The Nottingham based lace factory were making Britain proud again – and quality lacy knickers were their crowning glory. Since then, Kinky Knickers have gone on to expand their range.  While the parent company introduced a second brand, vintage inspired loungewear Ella & Me (which I explored in this post)

Cleo Skye : Zesty Summer Sorbet

I like my lingerie to be two things: reliable and mood reflecting.  And of course that opens up to a whole plethora of styles and colours, which makes lingerie so complex and, importantly, fun! Summer is a great time to expand your lingerie collection if you like your underwear bright and breezy as you can always count on gorgeously wearable styles in light hearted prints and cheerful colours.   Cleo‘s newest line – Skye – oozes
