Lingerie Shopping at House of Fraser

21 November 2014

On a recent visit to House of Fraser I was pleasantly surprised with their lingerie department. They have a great choice of designers to choose from including all time favourites: Agent Provocateur, Elle Macpherson, Calvin Klein and even Mary Portas & Kinky Knickers. Amongst these are  also collections from lesser known designers like Japanese brand, Wacoal, and this is where I found this beautiful set. 

I've grown to love simplicity the older I've got and this basic design from Wacoal's 'B'temp'd Lace Kiss' range falls into that category perfectly. The bralette and bikini style knickers are incredibly comfortable and tasteful. I also love the dreamy lace in it's pretty pastel hues, making it perfect for bridal underwear. The lace gives just enough stretch and is SO soft to the skin (mega points!!). The waistband on the knickers are just the right height to cover my caesarian scar, which has become another priority since I had Molly. The price was pretty light on the pocket too, costing less than £25!!!




I highly recommend you try this style of bra. I used to wear padded and under wired bras all the time and now find they can be incredibly uncomfortable after long periods. The bralette feels surprisingly supportive and looks exquisite styled underneath sheer blouses.

What kind of underwear do you prefer: are you a bralette or padded kind of gal or do you prefer thongs to big pants? Love to hear your thoughts!

Big love,

BEAUTY: Retro hair on a bad hair day

18 November 2014





Howdy peeps, and welcome to my first attempt at vlogging! Having made videos in the past, I was in two minds about dabbling in 'talkies' and the experience has definitely been a learning curve, with lots of cussing and tears when editing wasn't going my way. But I did it! WHOOP WHOOP!

In this little tutorial I show you a quick and easy way to style retro bangs and also how to tie a headscarf in true Rosie the Riveter style. It's a perfect up-do when your having a bad hair day. 

If you have any questions please comment below. 

Big love!
