PARFAIT AND AFFINITAS| STYLISH LINGERIE


  1. Charlotte Padded Bra and Briefs
  2. Honey Molded Bra and Briefs
  3. Parfait Kimberley Bra and Thong
  4. Serena Body in Green
  5. Rosie Bra and Hipster briefs
  6. Honey Molded hipster Babydoll     
So as a bigger busted lady I always find it hard to find stylish underwear. I feel that we are overlooked by designers and retailers who mostly cater to smaller busted ladies, in terms of design. I find that when I go shopping for lingerie, I find that the designs for the D+ lady are mostly frumpy,boring or unflattering. Whilst the designs for smaller busted women are exciting,sexy and colourful. As a result I find shopping for lingerie a chore.

 Now I am in no way hating smaller busted women, but I think designers and retailers should really look into catering more for bigger busted ladies in terms of designs. As we want to look and feel good too!

As a result I had the opportunity to come across Affinitas and Parfait. These brands cater to bigger busted women and I am so glad I stumbled upon them as I love their bras. You may remember to doing my giveaway featuring an Parfait bra. Well I recently got to visit the showroom, and I fell in love with a whole selection of lingerie.

What I really like about Affinitas and Parfait, is the have carefully combined support with fashionable designs in their lines. I like the range of colour,detailing and pattern. Especially the green in the body, and the pinstripes.

I am really impressed with this brand. If you were looking to purchase any of these brands they are in boutiques around the UK and worldwide.To find out which boutiques they stock the bras you can search here .

On Monday, I finally got my dissertation results after I submitted them last month and I am happy to say that I got a 1st class(A grade) in my dissertation. For those who are interested to know, I do a Business and Marketing degree and I decided to do a topic I am interested in, so I choose fashion and beauty blogging, and it's impact on the purchase intentions on young women in the UK. So hopefully, the fact that I got and 1st in my dissertation on fashion and beauty blogging will lead me closer to getting a 1st overall and possibly help me get a job(see 2013  goals)

So I was contacted by Boohoo to re-create a fishtail hairdo and pink lip(seen in the video above). As I decided to take a break from studying I decided to recreate the look. It went ok! but my hair  was a little bit harder to tame as my hair is very curly and in layers. It went much better last time I attempted it, I am just very rusty. 

Have you tried this style out? By the way you can now get 10% of Boohoo by using my code

MOTEL ROCKS| AW13 PRESS DAY


  1. EARRINGS-PRIMARK
  2. JUMPER-H&M
  3. VEST TOP-PRIMARK
  4. JEGGINGS-NEW LOOK
  5. STUDDED BOOTS-NEW LOOK

Last Wednesday, I escaped the clutches of Uni revision and ventured into Central London for the Motel Rocks! AW13 press day. I was excited for two reasons, firstly I was going to feel the fresh spring breeze on my face, instead of the hot stuffiness of the uni library. Secondly I was going to fawn of some serious cool pieces! #win.

Anywho, I was amazed when I stepped through the Motel Showroom as I was transported into a 90's playground!! The sound of TLC's creep blasting through, the familiar theme tune of Friends on the TV, and the utter yummyness of the slush puppies, all brought beautiful nostalgic memeories of my childhood.

Before, I  looked at the AW13 collection, I quickly had to have a temporary tattoo done, sadly they didn't work on me so I had a glitter one done instead. And if that wasn't enough,I had henna done... it was so pretty, it is almost faded now.

The collection was right up my street, colourful,some bodycon pieces, edgy and just all in all sick. I wanted to take them all, luckily I didn't otherwise I would've been swiftly escorted out of the building and that wouldn't have been a good look.

The best part of the day was chilling with bloggers old and new! It was great cathing up with fellow FBLers Ally and Vanese, also met Chelsea,Jen,Desiree,Laura,Shore,Selina and Akeesha. It was great meeting you guys and I hope to see ya again!


Oh by the way I changed my hair, what do you think?

    Hope you all had a lovely Easter, what did you get up to? I just chilled with the fam, I should've been revising but YOLO(do people even still say that anymore?)
    Anywho, during the Easter break I decided to scour the web for a bit of on line window shopping and I think I have come up with a lovely little loot this time. One of the stores I was really impressed by was Capology who primarily sell alot of street Caps and urban clothing. I love the caps, and if I had a hat head I would buy one but I don't. 
    But I love men's graphic T's and jumpers.I tend to pair them with skirts and leggings, if I am not lazy I like to customize them to make them more feminine. Capology had a lot of favourites that I was eyeing up especially from kidrobot , King Apparel,Mishka . But my top three favourite items were the rebel 8 top, 10 Deep top and Markers from kidrobot. Reason being I like the prints on both these tops and I like to draw. However, I am not sure that I can use these markers on tops?
    New Look are on point at the moment, I literally want to buy everything! the bodycon printed skirt is so cool and so are the culottes.The heels are so pretty. Since I have my graduation ball coming up next month,they will go perfectly with my dress. I'll let you know if I decided to go for them. 
     I've been on the hunt for a good gold chain necklace, not the usual curb chain but something different. I really like this one but I can't justify buying another necklace as I have way too many!
    What are on your lust lists?
