Going Strapless and heels hurt!

Going Strapless and heels hurt! 0

Life has been manic lately. Trying to find the time to site down at the computer without someone telling they need a wee, or a drink, or so and so has taken there toy has become tough. I have also had lots of work commitments on top of a husband that has taken on extra work, so for the last four weeks I have had kids seven days a week and no break (an this week will make three!). I only tell you this because I have not stopped by for a few weeks and have missed the glamour and adult company that is Freya Fitting Talk.

So my last break was four weeks ago when I attended another conference in London. This one was aimed more at the Mummy market but had some fabulous speakers like Sarah Brown and Cherry Healey and Katie Hill all there. It was spread over two days and was full on with seminars you could attend, PR networking, photography workshops and of course an award ceremony.

It was inspiring and brain buzzing and exhausting but I really enjoyed it.

Of course the key thing about preparing for such events is the ‘What to wear scenario?”

I determined to wear heals on the Friday. I love shoes, is it one of my passions but the practicality of wearing these days is not so good, so they stay and look beautiful in the wardrobe, teasing me.

Out they came on Friday – my beautiful Office shoes in a nude colour. OMG how much have I forgotten what heels are like? To say my feet hurt by the end of the day was an understatement. I feared I might never walk again! They did look good though!

Brook on a bike… 0

I just had to say I had some serious bike and dress envy when I saw the delicious Miss Kelly Brook in this amazing red number. The dress is by the Pretty Dress Company, and has been added to My Style Pinterest board as soon as I saw it. It’s £95 and pretty perfect for the curvy girl I think, certainly a showstopper!

Now, when I train for Cycletta I tend to look a lot sweatier than this, probably covered in rain and mud, and,  in my padded cycling shorts, decidedly less girly.  More

Fifty shades of… lingerie!

Fifty shades of… lingerie! 0

So own up….who else has been reading Fifty Shades of Grey?

I was being bombarded by my friends on this ‘must read’ book and not one to want to miss out felt the need to purchase the erm…..set!

Well, it has been an education I can tell you!

Christian Grey – Mr fifty shades of completely messed up in the head, is in fact a magnet not only pulling Ana (the lucky girl ) under his spell but the reader in as well. As much as your head is saying ‘Oh no, not for me thank you’, you kind of want to understand where Christian is coming from (no pun intended) as it actually seems all so exciting. I think it is because underneath it all, you hope it is more than just the sex and actually a love story!

I am onto the second book. I read the first in three days (the children had to fend for themselves) and whilst it is not literary genius it is rather entertaining with quite a good psychological underpinning to it. Beside when Charles Dickens wrote his first novels, people were not all that impressed at the time and look at him now!

It got me thinking. Whilst I am perfectly happily with my ‘Vanilla sex’ (You will need to read the book to know what this means as I am not about to embark on a sex education class right now! *BLUSH!* ) I am not adverse to vanilla sex moving from Tesco finest to Waitrose, or even Harrods own!
