A Breastication 0

So I said that I would tell you more about our day to Eveden. I have to say I was excited because not only did I get to meet the team but also because it was a day off! I have 20 month old twins and a little boy who will turn three in June and they keep me very busy so a day filled with ‘grown up’ conversation was delightful. In typical style though I started to come down with a chest infection but I continued on my travels, too excited to care.



Outlet Swimwear Review: Freya Zodiac, Bamboo Island and Mystic Bikinis 2

Never to be put off by a little bit of cloud down by my local beach Sandbanks in Dorset, I ventured to take some pictures of some of my favourite Freya bikinis of times gone by –  the ‘Zodiac’, ‘Bamboo Island’ and ‘Mystic’ styles.

All of which have been released for a year or more and are firm favourites. Despite most not being currently sold (unless you are lucky to come across them online or an store) they are similar to many bikini styles and shapes that are available in current and upcoming collections.


Swimwear Review: Freya Venetian Bikini 0

Me doing my very best ‘Champion’ pose in the Freya Venetian, 28FF.

I reviewed this bikini on my own blog Invest in Your Chest back in April and I have been finding excuses to wear it ever since. The Venetian gives the fit, comfort and style you expect from a Freya bikini, with a bold colourful graphic print and cutesy frills – quite frankly I’ve fallen in love!

In my original review – I put this bra through its paces by wearing it to a water park – think slides, rubber rings, children and hot tubs – my friend Becky found the experience so strenuous she had a nose bleed!


Brands and beneath 0

Among my current weekly watchlist of shows is Secrets of the Superbrands which airs on the ever-evolving BBC3.

It’s a great one to watch as a consumer  - which, by default, we all are – and gives a fascinating insight to the history of huge brands we know and love and the ways in which we are influenced to purchase.

As a designer and writer involved in projects with large brands over the years this is something I am aware of as part of my job, but to get under the skin of the psychology of the consumer experience is always fascinating to watch.
