All I want is a onesie!!

Sharon by Fantasie finally arrived this week, with what, 4 days of Christmas shopping left? Haha, it's really lovey. I'm sure it'll sell really well. I especially like the pants which are real delicate lace. We've had such a busy week up to Christmas, men are the worst rolling in the week before wanting red see through with polka dots, quick tip.. she doesn't want that. Surprisingly men seem to really go for half cup bras rather that padded. Go for the natural shape! Christmas in retail is really lovely although it doesn't give much time off at all!

I just want it to be Christmas now so i can give everyone their presents! Especially my boyfriend, he has loads.. very spoilt. I did him his own little glossybox which is so cute if i do say so myself. All I want is a onesie? hmmm xx

Passionata is a lovely family run french brand. They specialise in really delicate lace and half cup bras. Simply gorgeous! Its a brand I really wish I could wear. In the past I have bought some in a 32DD but would only wear on special occasions and in my opinion when you are spending quite a lot of money on something you should get your monies worth (like good fitting boots and fur coats!) 
And also, as I'm a 28 or 30 back the fit wasn't great.
However, they have just started making 30 backs but only up to the DD. 
So great for little ladies but not so good for the ample bosoms!
Jolie has just arrived in the shop and its so pretty, I'd love to unwrap this little number on Christmas day. 
Its a perfect sexy set to wear under a nice black new years ever dress?

Passionata is around the same price as Fantasie with an average bra costing £35/£36. A lot less than their sister brand Chantelle which you can pay up to £80.00 for a bra but equally, they are stunning!!!!

Chantelle Versailes with crystals on. Bra £78.00 and shorts £35.00.

I wish Freya would revert back to their old school way of bra design. My two faves have been Tigerlily which was such a fab fit and such bright colours! They then brought out Myrtle which was the same bra just in a different pattern. What I loved about them both was the colourful straps and I always felt really supported. Freya then went on to produce these awful satin numbers that didn't seem to fit anyone so I'm glad they've got rid :-)

Whats your favourite Freya?

Fiore by Lepel

My usual bra has always been Fiore by Lepel but since I've gone up a size I haven't been able to get into the 30F because of the padding, even when removed! So, I've gone to the half cup which I absolutely love, I think I like it even more than the plunge because its not as much boob and the detail is lovely!

Fiore is a fantastic bra, at just £22.00 it competes with high street shops such as La Senza but you are getting much better quality and proper sized bras. I would recommend this bra to anyone. It starts at a 30 back which is fab and cups go up to a G. It has a lovely matching thong, short and they've just reintroduced the knicker. This bra comes in the normal black, white and nude but the Christmas colour is black and gold.. it's AMAZING. This is my latest purchase. They bring different colours out every few months, nexts years colours are mint green and coral.

If you keep your eye out, larger chain stores often pop Lepel in the sale for lovely prices such as £9.00.
Its a shame working in a smaller boutique, you can't compete with these low prices and blue cross sales but luckily we've got our followers and they wouldn't go anywhere else :-)

Christmas Black & Gold.

 Septembers colours, blue and pink, so cute!

This is the half cup bra that i prefer, but its not for everyone.

Sienna (not Miller)

My favourite bra at the moment is Sienna by Panache. I went to Portugal in September and decided I needed a nice new 'holiday' bra. So, I went to Debenhams and found Sienna for something daft like £8.70. The bra retails in most shops at £26.00 so it was a right bargain! Its the old colour of black and purple though. There is the gorgeous new colour our which is navy/plum.. I would really like it as it is one of the comfiest bras I've ever worn and its really sexy too! Im sad I missed the red and black because it was gorgeous. I'm hoping they bring out a new colour next year but I haven't heard or seen anything yet...

The old colour red.

Taylor by freya is so gorgeous!
Just arrived today! Styled on deco, its black with gorgeous gold detail. I think it looks really expensive and not like a deco bra. Im not too keen on the high waist hold-me-in briefs. The bra is around £32.00 and there is a mathing thong & short. The short is seamless so perfect for tight dresses, and I also find them really handy for running? Our most popular range has been Nina by Freya (lovely pink leopard print.) It's flown out of the shop and we are debating whether to get any more in?
Next to drop in is Sharon by Fantasie. It looks really nice but not my cup of tea, I think its aimed more at the mature lady. I always find Fantasie knickers are so high up. The thongs are nearly around my tummy!

At first I wasn't too impressed with Novembers Glossybox, but actually it's got quite a good mix in it. I love love love the nails, I can't wait to try them out. I've just ran out of face cream so the skin perfecter has come at just the right time! I actually really like one of the perfumes too, its smells just like white Armani! So, overall i'm really quite impressed. I'm going to wait and see what the Christmas box is like and then maybe get the feel unique box instead? Has anyone got both?

I also forgot to say how good Death Cab was. 3rd time seeing them and they didn't disappoint. They played almost the whole new album, which i'm not overly familiar with after only listening to it a couple of times. My fave track of the night was definatley 'We looked like giants.' My boyfriend and I did a very good job at getting very drunk off gaymers cider before roaming around Leeds afterwards until finally grabbing a pizza and eating in back in bed at the hotel like slobs! Really nice (early!) Christmas present! 

Finally my conniefashion order came. A-MA-ZING. My Vivienne shoes are gorgeous, and they came packaged in the proper boxes with authenticity cards. I got my boyfriends mum a Louis Vuitton scarf and that was really lovely although not real. The Alexander Mcqueen scarfs were probably the best, they are real and came with tags etc. I would highly reccommend having a look, and probably ordering. On my next list there will def be a few AM scarves and a Burberry Mac! I cant wait to order loads more next time :-)

lingerie galore!

Seven new sets have arrived. Nina and Niomi by Freya, Elodie in Black by Fantasie, Celine and Isobel by Fauve and finally two new ranges we have just decided to try out called Un:usual.

Pretty hard to choose which one I want the most. I think its probably Nina by Freya but Isobel by Fauve is so stunning, its hard. Our shop looks very full now, we just need to re-do the window all christmassy and we are set. Still waiting on some Chantelle stock but that can wait-I'm too busy ooing and ahhing over fauve!

I just bought a lovely dress from Love the brand that is in Topshop.
I just read on another blog that if you are a new customer you can enter the code WELCOME10 and receive £10 off plus its free delivery-score!

I bought this dress. Abbey Clancy had it on a while ago on This Morning. & in my head i have a vision of Lauren Conrad wearing something similar with her hair wrapped around her head in a plait? I'm going to wear this on Thursday after Death Cab for some cocktails <3

I think i was an advert for boohoo on Saturday. I was wearing an amazing backless playsuit which comes in loads of amazing colours and its only £20! I also only bought these boohoo wedges last week so had never worn them and I can honestly say they are the comfiest things I've ever worn! Usually I mainly wear New Look shoes because I find them to be the comfiest but these are my new faves and will be for a long time. I think also when you read the reviews for them-everyone else thinks so too.

I want this bra so bad!! The colour is amazing and will be so good for winter wear, its also really plunging so gives great cleavage while being smooth enough for t-shirts...perfect!! Its by Freya and called Deco. They do this bra in really plain colours and bring out these fab editions! Its great because the sizes start at a 28 and go to a 38 with cups starting at a B up to a GG!!

Let the mouse see the cheese!!

Sadly, they did not take my tooth out-although i am on the worst antibiotics so i cant drink for 5 days then for 48 hours after I finish them booo.
On a nice note my boyfriend rang me from Bon Iver last night so that cheered me up.

I also got an email saying I have won 4 tickets to Paddys 'Take Me Out' next friday which will be hilarious. Although its a 4 hour drive and we're not sure if we can do it yet but anyway, was nice to actually win something. I applied on Theres so many shows you can apply to be in the crowd!!

cry cry cry

I think i'm having my wisdom TOOTH out tomorrow. It started hurting back in June and Dr.Dentist said he couldn't do anything about it because the top one wasn't though. Over the past week its been agony, its basically trying to grow but my mouth is too small so it is growing into my cheek. Its really bruised and sore and any second now i'm going to overdose on ibuprofen. So emergency dentist tomorrow morning crrrry.

What makes it even worse is that my boyfriend going to see Bon Iver tonight in Leeds, and then Wiz Khalifa tomorrow night so he won't even be here to look after me. Although he did buy me Death Cab tickets for next week which I am SO excited about!!!

Has anyone had their wisdoms out? Will they put me to sleep??

John Godber

Last night I went to see the newest production by John Godber at the Hull Truck Theatre. It was really good! At first I thought 'Oh God' as it was very shouty. But I got into it after that. Its called 'The Debt Collectors' so as you can imagine its quite funny as they go from door to door and experience a different story behind each door.

I had the most annoying woman sat next to me.. pissed off red wine laughing so loud everyone was turning to look! At one point she held her hand in front of my face? Very odd.

I really like John Godber productions. Everyone keeps telling me about Bouncers and I've never seen it. The best one I've seen was up'n'under which of all things was about rugby but it was hilarious!!!!
If you ever get chance or if they tour near you, go see them!!!

This is the newest range in Freya coming out. I think its so so cute. Pink leopard print with pretty flowers on? What more do you want in a bra? Its also starts in a 28 back which is fab and cup sizes go up to a G :-)

Weekend Buys.

I had a little shop this weekend and apparently like the colour beige? I bought a gorgeous blouse/dress by Zuppe from a lovely little boutique near where I live. I also bought a top from Rare Topshop in the sale for a fiver, and a lovely tan, one shoulder dress for £12 down from £46-bargain! I got a cute ring also, but you can't see it very well.

Saturday, 5 November 2011


This will be my next purchase as soon as it comes out. CoCo by Masquerade Panache. Its so beautiful! Grey leopard print that is very silky to touch. Great sizes, starts in a 28 back and goes up to a G cup. The bra will retail about £40.00 I would think...

Bra Size

As I work in a lingerie shop we see some funny things.. just looking around the internet the other day, this site popped up that told you how to measure yourself for a bra.

First of all it said to measure underneath your bust which is right, but then they said add on 4 to an even number and add on 5 to an odd number. Why they do this I have no idea.. if you measure 32 you are a 32 back? A good guide is:

Size 6-8 28-30 back
Size 8-10 30-32 back
etc etc. 

Although, my mums a size 14 and she wears a 32. Obviously the tighter your band the more support you get which relives things like straps falling off, saggyness, stretch marks etc and the main point being your clothes fit much better. 

Apparently the average size is something ridiculous like a 34B? I would say its more an F cup. There really isn't such a thing as a 34B.. it would mean a lady in a size 14 with no boobs. Young girls who wear 34Bs are in the wrong size and probably need a 30D?

So, go get measured properly. And, by properly I mean, go to good fitters. Not m&s or la senza!!!

Quitting Smoking

I'm going to quit. 

I've just ordered one of those electronic cigs from VIP. My boyfriend told me I had to spend quite a bit on them or I'd be inhaling rat poison which I didn't fancy. I don't know how well I'm going to do. I've been smoking since I was 16 so.. 6 years... I didn't have one on my way to work this morning, which is a cigarette I thought I wouldn't be able to go without so its looking promising!
I just know I'm going to be like the devil without cigarettes. Next weekend my friend is coming home from London for a night out, and I'm dreading drinking without having one. Any tips? Should I be doing this with patches?

York Maze

We went to York Maze last night for their scarefest and it was terrifying but absolutely brilliant all at the same time!

I have never in my life screamed so much!!

There are 4 attractions. The first one we went on was called 'Curse of the Corn.' You get on a tractor and it takes you to the other size of the maze and you have to work your way back through.. Along the way there are sections. Scarecrows jump out at you etc. The best section was a car crash, there was a 'dead' body laid on the car that jumped to life and ran after you. There was a mental guy chained to a wall and you think 'oh hes chained up thats fine'.. but he breaks free just as you reach him!! Its scary but they arent allowed to touch you. The final bit of the maze there is a guy with a chainsaw.. as soon we we heard the sound we ran and you emerge into a huge field where there is nothing but you, the grass and THEM!

The second attraction is called 'Carnevil'. Im TERRIFIED of clowns so I went through the whole scare house with my eyes basically closed. Scary enough, it was all strobe lights, the rooms seemed to spin, the floor seemed to move and it was impossible to walk in a straight line! The worst bit was a room full of hanging, blood splattered sheets of plastic and the strobe lighting made it so hard to see.

The third attraction was a bit dull, it was a 4D cinema experience called 'See No Evil'. The film was based aroud 4 people who visited the maze on the wrong day, and all the 'monsters' were actually real and doing the killing. Very cheesey handheld camera made. But it was quite exciting because they'd run into the barn on the film, the film would then stop and the actor would come running through the room chased by the monster!

The final attraction is called 'Barnageddon.' This was apparently the scariest one. I was pushed to go first as Emily couldnt even open her eyes!! It was basically a horror house, filled with scary people. It was very clever. You had to crawl through cages with monsters laid on the top, there was a girl sat on a bed rocking, monsters shaking fences, guys with chainsaws, a filthy toilet that sprayed water at you. And, just when you think you are outside and free you go back in again!!

Whilst you were queing and walking from each attraction there were monsters running around trying to scare you (which they did!) There was the grim reaper, a gilly suit man, guys with siphs, clowns, a strange thing that was a bit like beetlejuice with a horn. But the definate winner was 'Curse of the Corn'

The whole night cost £17.50 and it was so worth it!! I'll definatley be going again, but next year I'd like to try Alton Towers scare fest..


Emily, Abi, Rosie and myself. Emily looked incredible dressed as a peacock. You cant see very well, but shes got a gorgeous playsuit on from Topshop which is all peacock design. The rest of us were just in black, and I had blue shorts on. Poor Abi and Rosie had spraypainted their masks themselves and had black smudges all over their faces. Mine was very itchy and hot, so it didn't stay on long! Best dressed definately had to go to Barack Obama.. was hilarious seeing him strut around!

Yess finally been paid which means I can do my order on

Connie Fashion is the chinese/american website that do really good fake designer stuff. I'm ordering some Vivienne Westwood shoes and an Alexander Mcqueen Scarf (along with some christmas stuff... Ray Bans for $29!!). Now, I am not stupid I'm not just ordering from some crazy website... my hairdresser orders off here all the time and I've always wondered how she has designer everything!! The only downside is postage is $25.00? But if you order enough it makes it worth it.

Everything comes in proper original packaging with autheticity cards. Like these shoes will come in a Vivienne Westwood box. I'm excited. I've bought my friend some for her birthday too!!

Halloween this weekend and I am not dressing up.
I have bought a jumpsuit from ASOS, but I'm not so sure.. its white.

I think I can make it look ok with some nice black heels and red lippy. Maybe going to try and find some sort of masquerade mask to wear.. pretend to be Caggie MIC. I bought a gorgeous fur coat last week (number 7 and counting) in a real light camel colour, its beautiful. Can throw that over and hopefully have an outfit!

first post!


so this is my first post. i'm very hungover today, it was my friends birthday last night and we had a strange one.. it turns out you cant go out into town where I live on a Friday unless you are a minimum age of 35... 

safe to say i won't be doing it again. had a lovely woo woo in a place called zillis, a real funky little bar with gorgeous chandeliers! 

so anyway this is a funny picture of our night! strange glasses!
