Freya Active and netball love 0

Now don’t laugh, but I used to LOVE netball and played goal defence in school…back when I was tall for my year. Given that I am 5’3″  I am hardly huge, but for a while there I was not the smallest hobbit and used to love jumping around in my netball skirt with the ladies.

Netball is one sport I loved in school. I used to hate running with a passion (which is why this event meant so much to me when I did it!), so I am really pleased to see that Freya are partnering England Netball with their fabulous range of sports wear Freya Active, which I wore during my Team Bangs on the Run training.

Big Boobs V’s Small Boobs Part 1 – Bring it on!

Big Boobs V’s Small Boobs Part 1 – Bring it on! 0

I went away for a girl’s hen night weekend a few weeks ago and I was discussing the merits of my smaller boobs since having children. The girls were not quite convinced and said they loved my bigger boobs, but having been both full busted and now should we stay cough ahem petit (actually strained teabags but that’s what bra’s are for hey?) I can definitely see the advantages and disadvantages to both sides of the fence. So I decided to put it to twitter and these were the responses. This week we are going to look at the advantages and disadvantages of the bigger breasted lady!

Advantages of Big boobs (Taken from things people said on twitter!)

@_Johnsonbabies  I never had to wonder what ‘chicken fillets’ were? – True, you never have to worry about extra padding or volume with an ample bosom!

@mummyandmonkey They look fantastic in certain tops and clothes fit better – I agree, in the days when my boobs were bigger, they looked fab in cross over and square cut tops as the cleavage was shown off to its best advantage! Some people however with big boobs actually find themselves to be out of proportion.

Can wear dresses that are low cut – Plunging necklines don’t really work unless your boobs are fake as there is little natural uplift and actually it can look a bit too much in your face!

@innocentcharmer Feel attractive womanlier – I can understand this viewpoint. Curves in the right places can make you feel grand!

Clothes fit better – Not always but you certainly can fill clothes out better on the top half. Some people with big boobs actually find themselves to be out of proportion!

Body looks more in proportion – only if your boobs evenly match your hips!

@MummyLion Attracts the boys – Yes they do! I no interest in me at school until my boobs grew overnight (so much so, people rumoured I had had a boob job at 16! Yeah, right!) And Valentine’s that year was quite busy!

@Needaphone Get to front of line in pubs – It is easier to get served. They are noticed more!

@MummyLion could work as a stripper or a Topless model! – He he, Yes, work is available but I fear in my case you have to have the face to go with it!

 

Big boobs v's small boobs!

Big boobs have great advantages!

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?

Feeling Pixieish?

Feeling Pixieish? 0

Sometimes just sometimes, I like to be a little pixie like.

Sometimes I will accidently hand my husband cutlery knowing it’s two forks.

Sometimes I will eat two chocolate flakes in one day and claim the children got to them!

Sometimes I like to pair all the sock oddly.

Sometimes I think I might be a little bored! Sometimes I am!

But mostly it alway done with a pixieish glint in my eye and it give me those secret giggles that you get.
