One of the benefits of being a travel writer is that when England decides to inflict such a long winter on us, I occasionally get to escape to warmer climes. In February, my boyfriend and I headed out to Dominica in the Caribbean, where we stayed at the stunning Rosalie Bay. Dominica has an incredible landscape- we discovered beaches, mountains and freshwater rivers running through the jungle. Here are some pictures I took of the walk to a waterfall pool- and then some slightly wobblier pictures that are just stills from my flipcam that a fellow tourist kindly took for us. I’m wearing my favourite Fever swimsuit, the best one-piece I’ve owned in my adult life. Of course it has a built in bra which makes it super flattering. I’m already counting down the days til I get to wear it again!
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!
Here at Fitting Talk we adore the new ‘mothership’ Freya Lingerie site – all shiny and new! It is packed with gorgeous flash and exciting techno-gadgets, linking all the Freya platforms into one integrated site, showcasing the Freya brand, Freya Active, Freya Lounge and Freya’s swimwear ranges. So pretty!
Lots of hard work has gone into making the new site perfect, so many congratulations to the Freya team, it has the Fitting Talk seal of approval!
I have been a very lucky girl and had a glorious summer. I have not been away and got a gorgeous sun tan, and I have not sampled Pimms in large quantities (I wish) but I have had my husband by my side for six weeks as he is a teacher and has me helped with the wee ones and some fabulous quality time including Center Parcs, Peppa Pig World and this week The Lake District! I can’t wait!
I have used my swim suits so much as the twins took their first try of swimming – here is me in the Riviera bikini which was so supportive and comfortable with two smalls, who do have a habit of pulling at the most awkward of places often resulting in an escaping breast – not the case this time thank goodness!
I feel I have sung the well deserved praises of Freya swim wear a lot and so was delighted to receive some beautiful lingerie called Tara this month from the Freya Team. So I shall tell you more about it!
