Breaking the Mould

Breaking the Mould 0

I’ve had something of a breakthrough, and wanted to share it with you. As one of Freya’s bloggers, I get to try lots of their bras, but so far I’m afraid I’ve probably been quite unadventurous, generally sticking to the sort of styles I’m used to. But the other day, the lovely folk at Freya popped a new bra in the post that I hadn’t requested; the Deco Honey Moulded Plunge Bra. More

Winter Comforts

I have a confession to make. I LOVE winter. As everyone else starts lamenting over the dark evenings and chilly temperatures, I secretly love snuggling up under a duvet on the sofa, digging out my thick tights and woolly hats and seeing my breath in the air. This may have something to do with having spent much of my childhood growing up in the Mediterranean where we had little in the way of seasons- it’s slightly colder in the winter but I definitely remember spending a number of Christmas days in jeans and a t-shirt. So proper cold weather is still something of a novelty for me- as is really warming, comfort food and drink. My list of Christmas presents for friends and family nearly always includes a cookbook, and this year is no exception. More

Racer back love with Freya Active

Racer back love with Freya Active 0

Never one to make life easy for myself, I am currently training for Cyletta, a women’s 40k bike ride in Brighton in 2 weeks time, and Run to the Beat, my second attempt at the half marathon debut I made last year with Team Bangs on the Run.

As an endo warrior exercise is a hugely important part of my health and well being regime, also one that needs to be balanced carefully (see my post on Spikes and Heels for more about training with a chronic illness). More

Flocking around the Christmas tree: Ingrid Loungewear review 0

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.

Autumn/Winter 2011: Taylor strapless review 0

For anyone who has read my photo blog of how I utilised the Freya Deco strapless, you’ll know that for a 28/30 backed girl finding a strapless can be like being between hell or high water. A hackneyed phrase has never been more apt than describing a strapless bra for me which is both comfortable, pretty, and a great fit really is as rare as hen’s teeth.

The Deco is a really practical wonderful bra and has become my go-to bra for any strapless outfit and I thought it couldn’t be rivalled but it has been beaten to the ground by the stunning Taylor strapless.

The subtle yet knockout detailing of the striped sheer fabric overlay, bronze felt stripe and ribbon and strip of lace is so sophisticated. It takes a practical item and injects a bit of sex appeal that the plain Deco version was lacking (not to worry poor Deco, you’ll always have your place in my heart and my wardrobe!).
