Well, I’ve been back from my summer holiday for nearly a month now, and I’ve only just managed to catch up with all the inevitable post-vacation emails/washing/general settling back in to the old routine. I had a fabulous break, but within days of returning I was feeling horribly stressed again, so I had a serious sit down to consider what bits about being on holiday made me so relaxed, and what elements of them I could try and hold on to in my everyday life. Here are some of the conclusions I came to- there are no earth shattering revelations but it’s sometimes easy to forget how the little things really improve our quality of life.
The English word feminine is derived from the Latin femina meaning “woman” or “female,” and literally “she who suckles! I find this amusing that this female word links to the idea of breasts and feeding and feel that again all of woman hood seems to be associated with the idea of boobs.
Maybe breast do define us as in a physical sense as a woman but I think think femininity is more than that. It includes, behaviours and attribute associated with being female that can actually be seen in all sexes and genders. That could include a love for colours, materials, make-up, heels, romantic comedies – you name the female stero-type and it comes under the umbrella of femininity.
I am ridiculously feminine. I don’t shy away from hard graft, but if I can do it in heels, with my make-up on, then I will! And if I need overalls and my Wellies on, then I want to feel feminine underneath.
This can be done with the most stunning set of lingerie called Elize.
It is made from a beautifully feminine lilac satin material and is edged in sexy black lace. The bra itself is slightly padded to give that little bit of extra support and smooth shape.
The straps are also lilac and edged with black and the knickers come in a brief, shorts or thong variety!
It feels pretty and girly and yet had a sultry feel to it.
I just love it and I know you lovely ladies will too.

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.
I’ve been a long-standing fan of Busts 4 Justice since their epic battle against tit-tax back in 2007, and the fabulous Busts 4 Justice blog has kept me hooked ever since. Author Beckie Williams writes topical,interesting (and sometimes controversial!) posts about the joys and faux pas’ of The Lingerie World. Her sparkling wit and talent to spot a great story has often engaged me and left me thinking, her charming way with words and delightful anecdotes (anyone else fancy a ride on Cecil?!) has kept me going back to the ‘B4J’ blog time and time again, but recently, I left feeling dismayed.
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!).
