Hello, It's Me: Update: January 2016

I was wondering after all of these weeks you'd fancy a little update from me...

I know it's been a short while since I have updated this little space so I thought I'd dust off the keyboard, have a sneak peak in my inbox and type some words on some space to let you all know that I am indeed still around (although I'm sure you were all far too busy having a fabulous time to even think about this space).

I have been a totally skint bint (in true January dullard style) and the only outfits I've worn have either been really boring or my gym kit. So I have no official outfit post to show you or any particular item to review but I thought I'd give you a little picture update...

The one common occurance you will see from the pictures is that I seemed to have developed a love of the outdoors as I've been most likely to be found clocking up the miles in the countryside covered in mud, clad in my favourite wide fit wellies and warmest coat rather than anywhere else.

I have also over the past few weeks...

Tried to live without my hair extensions, had them taken out and then had them promptly put back in. It all lasted about 3 weeks but in the end I was sick of looking like an ugly boiled potato (see ridiculous, stroppy pouty duck face in pictures)

Had a HUGE wardrobe clear out (again another reason for no interesting outfits as I now have no clothes to wear!)

Finally booked my driving test (I can no longer live life as a bus wanker, so all of the money that I used to spend on clothes and shoes now goes on terrorising the roads)

...and finally acquired a terrible addiction to my Fitbit (yes I'm now one of those dickheads, I'm not even sorry.) I will talk more about what I've been upto fitness wise soon as I do get a lot of questions about it; however I know some people are upset/triggered by this kind of chatter and I want to talk about it as positively and sensitively as possible.

I hope you've all got off to a great start this new year <3

Bra-Humbug! Bra Blasts From The Past: Simply Be

Being a child of the 90's an era that was all about *THAT* Calvin Klein-esque bralet, that '...thong, th, thong, thong, thong' and a trend of underwear labels riding above the top of your jeans I couldn't be happier that I now live in a time where big high waisted knickers are as trendy and readily available as the itsy, bitsy teeny weeny triangle bra. 

Being a girly of ample proportions I personally like to have my boobs and curves lifted, shaped and supported and that would be virtually impossible in an 80's style G-string and crop top or Madonna inspired conical breasticle apparatus. 

When it comes to lingerie trends my faves definitely have to lie in the comfort, support and curve enhancing styles of 50's pin-up big knickers, waist cinchers, girdles and longline bras that hoist my girls up and proudly display them. For a size 24 girl who likes to enhance certain assets in a deep plunging neckline I need my underwear to sculpt my lumps and bumps, pull bits in and push other bits up and out (that's just how I personally like my undies to work for me). 

As times change, trends change and underwear is no exception to the ever changing landscape of fashion. Whether you like to enhance, minimise or just give your boobies a good old of support check out Simply Be's guide to underwear styles of the past which are still firm favourites of our lingerie present
