All I Want for Valentine’s Day

Image source: Lingerie gifts have gone hand in hand with Valentine’s Day for as long as I can remember, as couples (and singletons for that matter!) indulge in the theatre of a ‘sexy’ lingerie set.

Cleo Lily Balconette: Bra Review

Cleo are, for me, a pretty failsafe brand and I tend to find that most of their items fit me pretty well (with quite a few achieving pretty impressive scores in their reviews!). It wasn’t until Cleo’s Meg got a pretty lacklustre 7/10 that I started to doubt in Cleo’s flawlessness. I was especially disappointed as the Meg style became the base for many beautiful colourways – often some of my favourite styles from each Cleo collection.

Student’s Guide to Bra Buying: Quality Bras for Less

Freya Ooh La La Body in Black

When it comes to buying bras, or anything for that matter, I’m what can only be described as a ‘massive bargain hunter’. It’s extremely rare that I’ll buy anything full price, and my lingerie addiction rarely evades this philosophy. The good news is there are so so so many options for frugal frillies – so for those of you waiting on payday or your student loan, you needn’t wait to kit out your top drawer!

Simply Beach: Cleo Swimwear ‘Hattie’ Bikini Review

It’s not everyday I find a strapless bra that I really love, let alone a strapless bikini. Enter Cleo’s strapless ‘Hattie’! I’ve had my eye on ‘Hattie’ ever since we were given an exclusive sneak peak at the (at the time totally secret) Cleo Swimwear at the Panache blogger event way back in June of last year. I have to given myself credit: I’ve had the patience of the saint to wait this long for it, even though (let’s face it) here in the UK the need for bikinis is pretty abysmal and I’ve not had the need for it since I’ve not been on holiday since (boo!)

Cleo by Panache ‘Melissa’: Bra Review

Since the sun is shining and it’s SUCH a beautiful day here in the UK (that’s right folks, not a cloudy in the sky here in Blighty!), I was rummaging around in my ‘to review’ pile (some delights and some disasters in there let’s put it that way) and thought – now’s not the time to get negative – it’s time to share my latest lingerie love with you. So forgive me, I’m about to sip some Pimms in my suntrap back garden and wax lyrical about the lovely Melissa by Cleo.

My Curves and Me

I’m sure that most people reading this will agree that D+ lingerie is often an expense that gets pushed to the back of the queue of priorities. Whilst I’m up for splashing out on gorgeous new-season lingerie and falling in love with the latest collections, the fact is that if I need to replace my basics and I’ve just been bankrupted by an MOT, I’m going to shop around.

It goes without saying that with Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away (that’s right, you heard it here first guys and gals!) I simply couldn’t resist throwing one of these together.
