Last week I went up to Newcastle for the weekend to attend the wedding of my lovely baby brother Paul and his gorgeous lady Amy. More
So it is my 30th birthday today! Happy birthday to me!
One of my early birthday presents was a fabulous spa day away with the girls.
The treatments included a facial (bliss) a full body massage (heavenly) and a pedicure (anything that makes my feet look slightly feminine is good!) and a delicious two course lunch!
The day before we are set go and what should pop through the post but the Swing Lagoon Bikini.
Absolutely delightful it is!
The padded top gives me some va va voom in the boob department and the band around the top of the brief is so very flattering to your waist line.
It has a floral design but in nautical colours and looks very classy. The bikini also comes with a matching dress that can fall off the shoulders for sun bathing purposes but will look so cute in the summer teamed with a pretty pair of flip flops! I can’t wait for the weather to warm up again so I can wear this!
The bikini saw me well through the Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room! It got lots of compliments and i have converted another two friends to the joys of Freya!
How I love a birthday! I wish I could turn 30 again now!
Hope you get some spoiling to soon – if not treat yourself to this bikini!
At this time of year you tend to hear a lot about what people intend to wear for their Christmas Eve night out/Christmas party/New Year’s Eve bash – but what about what you’re going to snuggle into on Christmas Eve to watch The Snowman? What you’re going to wake up in and run down to get (ahem, give) your presents and eat the biggest roast dinner of the whole year? It’s a tough job but one that was thankfully answered for me earlier this month in the form of a soft-as-kitten’s breath mini dressing gown and a pyjama set adorned with an entire flock of pretty pets. That’s right, it could only be the Ingrid Freya Lounge set.
I’ve been a long-standing fan of Busts 4 Justice since their epic battle against tit-tax back in 2007, and the fabulous Busts 4 Justice blog has kept me hooked ever since. Author Beckie Williams writes topical,interesting (and sometimes controversial!) posts about the joys and faux pas’ of The Lingerie World. Her sparkling wit and talent to spot a great story has often engaged me and left me thinking, her charming way with words and delightful anecdotes (anyone else fancy a ride on Cecil?!) has kept me going back to the ‘B4J’ blog time and time again, but recently, I left feeling dismayed.
So it’s safe to say that winter is here. Soon we’ll be turning our clocks back and our evenings will get darker and gloomier before our very eyes. One thing that has kept me cheerful through this dark time has been waiting for my next Freya pick-me-up to arrive and I have to say A/W 2011 looks set to be an absolute treat.
First up from the collection I was kindly sent a Freya Naomi to have a look at and I have to say it’s not my usual style. I’m very much more of a FLORALS upon FLORALS kind of girl with the odd splash of lace, however the Naomi’s quirky monochrome houndstooth was something that didn’t scream ‘BUY ME’ when I was salivating over the sumptuous ‘Coming Soon‘ part of Freya’s all-new website.
