I can’t believe how quickly February is going and that it’s almost Valentine’s Day already! I’m quite looking forward to Valentine’s this year as Gavin is taking me out for a surprise dinner, which is nice because normally I plan everything! So it will be interesting to see what he’s arranged. I thought I’d put together a little gift guide with some last minute gift ideas for those that might have left it a little bit late. Even if you don’t do ‘big presents’, I think a small gesture is always appreciated. Presents for Valentine’s Day don’t have to be…

Sometimes when you’re feeling a little bit down, or the dread of winter leaves you feeling blue, you need a little pick me up. There are loads of little things that cheer me up instantly; a new lipstick, a cuddle with my cat, a catch up with a girlfriend, and I think it’s important to make the most of these little things. Lingerie One of the big things that makes me a little bit chirpier in the mornings is the feeling of wearing something new. Whether it be a new dress or a new pair of shoes, wearing something fresh…

I’ve always recognised Boux Avenue as being a top retailer for good quality lingerie. Their knickers are always on my Christmas wish list, as they offer more than just cheap Primark pants. So I was thrilled when I was offered a £40 gift card to treat myself to a few goodies. Because Boux Avenue is a top lingerie brand, I wasn’t sure how much I’d be able to get with my £40 budget, I thought maybe a basic bra and knickers set might set me back my whole gift card. But they have some amazing special offers and promotions so…

Firstly, sorry that these photos are absolutely terrible! The weather was really gloomy when I tried taking them, and I’ve not had the time to try the photos again, but hopefully they’re not too bad. Here’s what I’ve picked up from Primark lately. They have lots of lovely new things in their Spring/Summer ranges and a few bits left in the sale too.  So after my bikini blog post a few days ago after hunting for a flattering fitting bikini I picked up this beauty for only £11. It’s got high waisted pants and a ruffled top, which works wonders…

First of all I’m so sorry that these photos look so rubbish, no matter how many times I tried to photograph these bits they just came out so dark! I hate wintery days! Anyway here’s what I picked up in the Primark sale recently. A few bits I got on Boxing Day (yes I’m one of those people) and the other things I got in January. They had tonnes of stuff reduced to crazy prices, it was annoying because I saw loads of stuff I bought a few weeks before at full price! It’s always the way. I have these…

I was recently asked to participate in a fun project by Marks & Spencers; their vintage era lingerie styling project. They selected me as a blogger (yipee!) and the idea was to pick a lingerie set that would provide the perfect basis for creating a vintage silhouette. I tried to base my look on the 40’s/50’s era, with a small waistline and flared skirt. To sculpt my silhouette, I wore the stunning M&S lingerie pieces I’d chosen, which included a longline retro bra and stockings. I picked the Limited Collection Floral Lace Longline Bra because I’ve found in the past…
