There has been so much lingerie coming through my door the past few weeks and it’s all been glorious. Working at home means I banish bras unless I’m having someone come over or obviously going out, but now I have so many amazing bras that I actually want to wear! My favourite of them all has to be the Elomi Bijou Longline. I have wanted a decent longline bra forever now. I constantly look and I am always left disappointed when they finish at a 38 back. Even though I technically am a 38 back, they really hurt me after a while. Not because it’s the wrong size but because of how I walk different with my chronic pain, especially when I’m in a lot of pain. So I’ve started wearing 40 backs and they’ve been fantastic. I love everything about the Elomi Longline, the colour, the style, the detail and the…

Normally I don’t even speak of Christmas until after my birthday (27th of November) but this year I’m feeling oddly organised. Well, I bought a couple presents and suddenly I feel Christmassy! But let’s call it organised. This year my Christmas Gift Guide is all about pampering, luxury, and the most important thing of all, self care. Luxury doesn’t mean luxury budgets though. I’m a bargain queen and rarely splurge unless something really impresses me. Watches are definitely something that deserves splashing out, especially OWL watches as they’re truly beautiful. This is the Lincoln Rose Gold Watch with Grey Strap at £110, it was the rose gold face that really attracted me to this watch, that and the fact that it’s rather small and unoffensive for a watch. Sometimes I just find them so big and bulky that I could never dream of wearing them, but this one almost looks like…

It’s day 5 of 30 Days of She Might Be Loved and it’s definitely time for some accessories! Throughout 3 years of fashion blogging, I can’t say I’ve been quite so taken with a bag company, and now, LYDC Bags seem to be the only bags I own and use. At Christmas alone I acquired 3 LYDC bags through working with the brand and gifts from my parent’s and other brands who stock them. LYDC Bags are incredibly high quality and despite taking so much around with me, especially when travelling, they don’t wear out as easily as some of my other and older bags have. In fact, my favourite bag is still going strong and doesn’t look as abused as it really is. I tend to use one bag at a time until it’s completely beaten and I rarely ever swap them for fashion purposes. Instead I go for practical…

Father’s Day is coming up and so I’ve been collecting things to suit any kind of dad, or father figure that you may have. I seem to have the neediest and most demanding parents when it comes to an occasion to buy presents for them, and they always want spoiling. I can’t complain as they’re quite lovely parents (I won’t big them up too much ;)), my Dad isn’t an obvious as my Mum and usually gets his 6 month stock of pants and underwear. It’s quite handy that Father’s Day happens to always be around his birthday and half way through the year. This year I’ve been focussing on gifts that he can really get use out of, as well as more affordable funner things and so, I have a collection of watches from 3 different brands to suit any man. First up is Abbott Lyon with the Black Gator…

I finally own a beautiful, proper vintage styled dress and it’s from the incredible brand, Vivien of Holloway! I was so over the moon when the owner contacted me to review a dress and instantly disappointed when I saw the sizing range wasn’t exactly plus friendly. With the largest measurements being a couple inches smaller than myself, I was so sad about how close I came to owning one of these beauties. Thankfully, the sizing is a little generous and as the dresses are boned like a corset inside, they do pull you in a little, meaning those extra inches are unnoticed. I’m more of a 22 now and the largest size has the measurements of B46 W38 H50, but I’m actually B49 W44 H56 and there’s still a little room in mine! Not a lot, but a little. The dress I’m wearing here is the incredible 1950s Halterneck Royal Polkadot Dress at £89.00,…
