Loving Longlines with Curvy Kate’s Carmen

The Curvy Kate Carmen is a bra that I absolutely fell for as soon as the first promotional pictures were released. I’ve longed for a longline bra ever since they came into fashion a few years back, and when I saw it at the start of 2014, I knew I had to get it, even if it was a Thrill Me-style squeeze. When I discovered the Carmen would be available in 28-38 D-J, well…

Curvy Kate Carmen Longline Rose Lime 32J Full Length

…I knew it was meant to be. This is the Carmen Longline (32J) and Thong (14) in Rose Mix, the first colourway this set was released in. I’ve owned this set for about a year now, and I am still just as in love with it as I was when I first saw it.  Continue reading

Mental Health and Blogging

Hi lovelies.

It might have come to some of yours attention that I haven’t always been the most active or consistent blogger. It’s not been unheard of for me not to post for a month or two at a time, and as I’m writing this, I come to realise that it’s been nearly 5 months since I posted anything – the longest I’ve ever gone without writing. So, though it might be hard, today I thought I would sit down and talk, just us, about why that is.

I wish I could say I had some huge reason, some big event or tragedy, a hectic new job or course, but the truth is, there hasn’t really been anything like that. If anything, there’s been…nothing. But a specific kind of nothing. Continue reading

Elegant in Kris Line’s Eva

Kris Line are a Polish large-cup lingerie brand, stocking a wide range of sizes in both padded and unpadded styles. They pride themselves on providing high quality, well-fitting lingerie, using top European materials, laces and embroidery. They produce a variety of styles, including basic pieces, fashion styles, nursing bras, nightwear and swimwear. I have tried Kris Line before, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a large enough cup from UK stockists. However, I was lucky enough to meet the Kris Line team at Moda in August, and as well as enabling me to see all of their lovely AW14 and SS15 collections, they also emailed me a while afterwards, offering to send me something to review – which of course, I gladly accepted!

Kris Line Eva 65L

After some discussion about what size I would need (currently 70K/KK in Ewa Michalak, 65O/P in Comexim, 30K in most UK brands), we decided to go for a size 65L. So, I was sent the lovely Eva set in a 65L & Medium. Continue reading

My Top Picks for Black Friday

Black Friday is very much an American thing, but over the past few years, more and more UK stores have been joining in on having big sales. Which is fine by me! So, today I thought I’d share some of my top picks for sales and discounts.

Gossard Phoebe Suspender Belt

Gossard are offering 20% off everything, including pieces in the outlet category, which means you can get up to 70% off on some styles! I am very tempted by the Phoebe Suspender Belt, which is already half price off, so is just £17.60 with the discount! Discount is applied automatically at checkout. Ends at midnight tonight (Friday, 28/11/14). Continue reading
