Taking my Freya to NYC 0

I had the girls dream recently of a long weekend in New York. I hopped over the pond with my lovely friend Michelle and spent our 3 days shopping, checking our diners and cupcakes, and taking it all in. Mainly shoppong and eating though, to be fair… I adored New York and love to soak up the atmosphere of the city, but as I didnt have much room in my suitcase for glitzy clothes I had a trick up my sleeve….my lovely, foxy fashionista Nina set. Now, I can handle wearing trainers, jeans and comfy tourist clothes but a girl has to feel glam in NYC, right? Here is what I packed for New York. I took my Nina, my Deco in nude, my Crystal and my Lyla in pink. Which Freya sets would you take to browse the Big Apple?

Freya SS12 preview – my favourites 0

Last week I popped along to 28 Portland Place to have a nose at the SS12 collection from Eveden, and dribble over beautiful lingerie. With the Mini Divas in attendance too (they recommended highly the chocolate brownies at the launch) it was amazing to have a sneak peek at the luscious large cup lingerie we will all be sporting next season.

I was particularly in love with the range of 20′s and 50′s inspired fabric prints on the forthcoming ranges, there is a real sense of pattern and vintage references.

Things that made me go ooooooh: More

Sex and the city vintage style 0

I am currently running a little book club over on my blog, and us Diva Readers are enjoying the classic novel The Best of Everything, by Rona Jaffe. ( do come and join in the fun!).

This novel is set and written in the 50′s, and precedes Sex and the City by 40 years, yet the themes are the same. Style, women in the workplace, fast paces New York, friendships, relationships. More

Team Bangs cross the line! 0

Yes, this past Sunday 25th September Team Bangs on the Run did our thing and completed the Nike Run to the Beat half marathon.

13.1 miles. For me, that’s a major achievement, as it was for the other ladies. We had all overcome so much to tackle the challenge, and I am still so elated for having crossed that finish line on Sunday.

Team Bangs are grateful to Freya for the Freya Active bras that kept our collective precious assets in place. Check out how
