NEW Summer Lingerie & DEBENHAMS GIVEAWAY!!

Monday, 22 August 2016


Debenhams Freya 'fancies' green bra and brief set_giveaway, competition, fashion blog, uk blog, lingerie, debenhams lingerie

Hello All! It has been such a long while, since I have spoken to you and bored you all to death with my random waffling about Alex Turner lyrics and Harry Potter spells. But I am back again, and I have been so excited to share my new lingerie set with you.


As I mentioned previously in this post here, I am working with Debenhams on their new bra fit campaign, which is all about getting the nations boobies into the right fitting bras - because honestly there are a lot of us who are in the wrong size bras and we don't even know it (8 out of 10 women - to be exact!). Debenhams actually recommend women to try to get a bra fitting done every 6 months to ensure that we are always wearing the correct size bra to support our breasts. If you haven't had one recently, you can head on down to Debenhams, where they carry out professional bra fittings for their customers...and no, it doesn't require you having to go topless in front of a complete stranger! That is just another one of the many myths about having a bra fit...and one that I believed for far too long.

Just ICYMI: The previous review featured this gorgeous Fantasie Lace Bra with this Missguided Summer Co-ord, see the full post herePlease note: The giveaway for the Fantasie Bra has now ended and entries are no longer being accepted.

Now, moving on to the latest Debenhams lingerie set. Keeping within the theme of sassy and bad-assy styling, the *Freya 'fancies' green bra and brief set is just as chic and beautiful as the Fantasie bra, if not more. Keep on reading to hear my thoughts on it:

Debenhams Freya 'fancies' green bra and brief set_giveaway, competition, fashion blog, uk blog, lingerie, debenhams lingerie

COLOUR:
I love the colour of this set, it is everything that I want for the summer. I am naturally a monochrome dresser; black, navy and grey are usually the colours that float my boat, but I have been attempting to become a little bit more adventurous this summer with going a little brighter with my colours. The colour of this set is bright and zesty, and when I put it on, I almost feel as bright and zesty as it looks - total winner.

STYLE & FIT:
Unlike the fantasie and 24hr strapless bra, this bra, is unpadded and unlined and is completely covered in lace - tres sexy. While a completely unlined bra is not something I would always go for, the Freya bra's, girlish and seductive air, is one I have grown to love and I have quickly found it becoming my bra of choice when opting for some underwear to make me feel pretty on a wild night out on the town. It has a 'plunge fit, low back fastening and peep hole centre front' which adds a complimentary hint of sass to the already bright green colour. The brief just like the bra, is covered completely in lace, which sits so softly against my skin each time I wear it and it fits perfectly.


I absolutely adore everything about this set. The bright colours, the sultry plunge fit and the comfort of the soft and pretty lace. It is everything that women love in lingerie and more and a set I would definitely recommend to all of you ladies out there, wishing to brighten up what is left of these dull summer days.

8 Reasons Why I'm Still Single

Thursday, 21 July 2016

8 Reasons Why I'm Still single, single life, list post, funny, 8 reasons, uk lifestyle blog

So guys I have been single for practically ALL of my life! Why you ask? Well up until recently I struggled to understand why. But I have been doing a lot of thinking and a lot of reflecting recently and have come to these 8 conclusions as to why I'm still single. Hint: A lot of it, is actually down to me! Shock horror - I know! Enjoy...
1) Independent woman - 
"All the women, who are independent, throw your hands up at me!" Haha!  Funny story - I used think they were singing, "Throw your hands at BATMAN!" So much LOL's! Anyways, independent ladies, have you ever had a guy feel threatened by your success? Or just all round put off by your ability to function completely on your own, without his assistance? Because I have, and it's annoying as f*ck! I'm sorry guys, I know you want to take care and provide for us and everything, but some of us girls don't need and don't want it. We just want your loving and your good abs. Sorry if you feel threatened by the fact that I earn a better salary than you, but I'm not about to give this up for shit, so you either deal with it or get packing! #Throwyourhandsatbatman

2) Easily annoyed - 
It's a well-known fact about me. My family know it, my friends know it, heck even my cat knows it! They all will do something on a daily basis to annoy me, because they know I'm an easy target. So many things about potential suitors annoy me, and they just get the boot ASAP. 'Chewing with your mouth open?' Please just go and lie in a ditch somewhere. 'Scraping your cutlery against the crockery" There is a special place in hell for you, and it is not my heart! #foreveralonebasically

3) I'm a SELFISH foodie! - 
I love my food and I really DON'T like sharing it with anyone. The obligatory "Would you like to try a bit?" question, annoys the life out of me every time I have to ask it (Especially when I'm HANGRY) and I will ask it through gritted teeth! I know, I know, that's selfish af, but I like my food OK! And I like savouring, every-last-bite! I'm not here for a lady and the tramp spaghetti sharing moment.

4) Personal space snob -

I get really angsty about people in my personal space! it's not even a - you smell so move 10 meters over there thing. It's more of a ' I get really anxious and scared when people enter my personal area, I feel like I have no control and something will go wrong, so please don't hate me for it' thing. God knows how I will ever share the same bed with a significant other (If and when he decides to materialise!) when being within a few centimetres of somebody makes me feel so anxious and generally just unwell.

5) I'm not playing hard to get, I'm playing scared to get! -
 I really would like to play the hard to get game (mainly for a laugh), but I know that I would fail miserably. I do not have a seductive bone in my body and I always get scared when I have to breathe the words "Hello" to a guy, so imagine what I would be like actually trying to play "the game". SINGLE forever, that is what I would be like!

6) Given up on love - 
That's right, I have been single for so long, that I have quite literally just fully given up. NO, there aren't plenty more fish in the sea, infact there are NO more fish left in the sea, they have all been taken. Therefore I don't stand a chance, I might aswell change my FB status from single to retired spinster and adopt 70 cats. #foreveraloneforever

7) I'm closed af - 
I'm not even going to hide it here, but I am a closed, defensive lady. I don't let people in, I don't open up to people enough and I sure as heck don't trust them enough. This has ruined potential relationships for me, more times than I can count and it's something I'm working on all the time. However as for right now, girls want guys to tell them things and guys want girls to tell them things and I just can't do the talking and opening up about my feelings things just yet, so yeah - chronically single.

8) All of the good guys are already taken -
 I wanted the guy with the good career, adventurous, funny, smart and all round good guy...SNAP - taken. I waited a lifetime for another guy who was a downright a**hole, but I still waited and guess what?...SNAP - taken. Every one I come across has already been taken or are about to be taken. I just want to know when will I get a chance to take em' And by take them, I mean take them home, hehe...for milk and cookies of course! (Gosh you guys!)

So yeah, basically, I'm single and alone for two very simple reasons:

1) Men are the biggest bunch of a**holes I have ever met!
2) I'm probably an even bigger a**hole who needs to learn to compromise and act more human if i ever wish to find someone!

In the meanwhile, I will channel this pretty amazing woman, who looks cool and mysterious af. Totally my aesthetic!...I wish.

Today I am back with another outfit post, because, well - why not? I love fashion, you love fashion, everybody loves fashion, so why not love fashion together? I'm rambling, let's get onto the actually fashion side of this post shall we?

I love all things 90's, so yes, that means all of the preppy plaid, all of the bucket hats and ALL of the blue and purple alternating lip colours (?) Yes, that too! I've gone true 90's and whacked on a blue lips on my top lip and a purple lippy on the bottom one. I mean, if that's not 90's spice girl then i don't know what is!

Oh and before you say anything - yes, I am wearing blue lipstick on one lip and purple on the other. And yes it looks weird as hell, but weird is what I like, so weird is what I will do!

Funnily enough, like practically everything else that I own, I have owned this Boohoo skirt for almost two years and I have only worn it once! Similar to what I did with these beautiful Forever 21 shorts, it's such a bad habit and one that I must kick! 

The skirt embodies everything I am about - plaid, prep and the beautiful clean lines that an A-line skirt brings. I have paired it with my favourite ribbed crop top from Missguided and my favourite Primark knee - high's, because in all honesty if you're going to go 90's girl band, you've got to give it the full shebang!

Accessories are minimal, yet stylish. A dainty freedom giraffe necklace from Topshop, classic gusset style boots from no other than my lifetime addiction: Boohoo and a bucket hat from a market stall, somewhere east.

Blue -lips-looking-like-a-blue-moustache-at-first-glance aside, I really was digging this look. I love that it's preppy without even trying, simple but still stylish and I know I've said it a 1000 times over in this post, but, OH SO 90's!

Debenhams Fantasie Bra Outfit_Review_Giveaway, Missguided navy co-ord, missguided navy blazer, missguided navy shorts, Boohoo Fedora, Asos Sunglasses, Debenhams Lingeriea

Well, well, well, look what the blogging cat has dragged in - an all new fashion Friday!

I know, I know, before you even say it, I already know what you're thinking! It's been a long time, but it is back, it has returned. Cue Cornelius Fudge whispering, with wide eyes "He's back, he's really back" (HP fans you'll know what I'm yapping on about)...Anyhoo, onto the outfit.

Recently, I have been all about taking chances, saying yes to things, and doing things I wouldn't normally do and yes that also means being daring with my outfits aswell.

As you all should and probably do know by now, I like to dress a little androgynously, with a hint of femininity. For me that means co-ords, fedoras, baggy t-shirts and the odd crop top here or there. Today I am epitomising this style through and through...

I got this stunning blue shorts and blazer co-ord set from Missguided and I wore it to Scarlett London's #Bloggersball, which incase you hadn't already heard, was ALL of the blogger feels and ALL of the fun!

Dear old Vix Meldrew, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the #Bloggersball and who, can I just say, is literally the bae-est of all BAE's! She described the outfit as the "Caroline Flackiest short suit" which is right on par with what I was going for (it totally wasn't what I was going for, but I love it!)- ahh doesn't Vix just have the best way with words...BAE!

This particular shot is not called 'Caroline Flacking' it is called 'Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just my awful luck with men!'

As I mentioned previously in this post here, I am working with Debenhams on their new bra fit campaign, which is all about getting the nations boobies into the right fitting bras - because honestly there are a lot of us who are in the wrong size bras and we don't even know it (8 out of 10 women - to be exact!).

That is just another one of the many myths about having a bra fit.

The bra itself, fits and looks like a dream. Bounded with lace and mesh, this bra combines feminine beauty with just the right amount of S-A-S-S! Which is a style that I am all for. I have decided to style it as a bralet, underneath the blazer, however that's only because I have chosen to go a little bit more risqué, it can also be worn as normal underwear, underneath your clothing. But that's what I love most about this style, even though it's clearly not a bralet, the materials used and it's styling, means that it can be styled in that exact way. It makes the bra flexible to the wearer, so that it suits their style.

On to the fabric, I usually dislike undergarments that are completely covered in lace, due to the fact that the lace tends to feel scratchy and generally just really uncomfortable against my skin. If I'm honest, I was expecting that same issue with this bra, however immediately after I put it on, I was surprised at how soft it felt against my skin. Another brownie point for the Fantasie bra!

Additionally the bra has a great underwire support, similar to that of the 24hr strapless bra, however slightly less thick as it doesn't need to offer as much support as that bra.  The bra isn't padded, which may or may not cause some issues for ladies who may need the extra support. However for me, not having the extra padding is what helps to make styling the bra as sexy outerwear a lot easier.

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!

Wednesday, 13 July 2016


Kids, I want you to listen up and I want you to listen good.

Don't grow up...IT'S A TRAP! 

When we were young (Cue an Adele-like vocal) all we wanted to do was grow up. We all wanted handsome husbands, high heeled shoes and pretty make-up. It was as if being an adult meant that you belonged to some kind of elite club, where you got to stay up late & make-out with cute boys, but oh boy - how wrong we were! Being an adult is filled with lots of boring, menial tasks like, paying bills, no drinking on work nights & countless Tinder failures with bae's who just aren't as charming IRL as on social, #foreveralone basically.

Today I thought I would talk you through all of the reasons why we should've just remained children for all eternity, and give us the chance to put up our feet from adulting duties! Enjoy! 

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child
The hardest decision that I ever had to make as a child was whether I wanted chicken nuggets or fish fingers in my happy meal. Stress did not exist and if it did, it was only fleeting. I went to school, ran around with friends at playtime & wrote in my diary about cute boy crushes. The stresses of adult life and the collapsing modern society was not present and that's the way I liked it! 

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child

When you're a child, everything seems holy rosy. Hearing about Brexit as a child, probably wouldn't have sparked as much concern in me then as it does in me now. Following the #BlackLivesMatter movement would've mattered to me, but it probably wouldn't have sparked as much anger and passion in me as it does now that I'm older. I do miss the rose tinted days, when you would believe the best in people - just because. When you would feel hopeful for the state of humanity because villains only existed in the movies and everybody who was being mean outside of the movies was just acting. Ahh boy- it sucks to be an adult doesn't it?!

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child
Oh how I miss summer holidays! I remember  being in first school when summer holidays felt like they lasted for an entire year, rather than just 6  weeks. And then slowly as I grew older and progressed through educational years, the summers got shorter. They started feeling less like a year and more like 2 seconds. Like WHAT?! As a child, I think we are so naive to the essence of time and it is only now as we grow older do we realise it's importance and how precious it is. Anyway, nowadays us adult working folks don't even get summer holidays...FFS - BRING BACK MY CHILD SUMMER HOLIDAYS!
6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child
Indoor dens, digging for treasure in the garden or just simply having your mum surprise you with a McDonalds happy meal on a Friday after school - every, single day was an adventure. I remember being a kid, waking up every morning, eager to start the day, curious to know what adventure I would embark on next! Even if it was just digging for worms at the bottom of the garden or transforming my parent's bedroom into an underground fort, it was something new and it was something exciting. 

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child

In adult land if you do something wrong, make a wrong move or say the wrong thing, there is a whole host of consequences; prison sentences, divorces, getting fired, the list goes on. However as a child if you did something wrong, it was most likely to be perceived as a learning curve and would generally result in a mini lecture or spank on the bottom from your parents. I don't know about you guys, but I would take a spanking over a prison sentence any day, ha! 

6 Reasons Why You Should Remain a Child For All Eternity!, Children, funny lists, adult life, adulting, humour, Child

Boy likes girl, girl likes boy, friend tells boy, boy asks girl out, boy buys girl a McDonalds happy meal and they live happily ever after. There's no Tinder woes, no third wheel drama, just plain, simple, childhood love. Ahh, if only love were that simple for us wee adults!

I hope you all enjoyed remembering what it was like to be an innocent, care free child. Sadly you're an adult now, so GET BACK TO WORK! ;)
