The Curviest Kate

When my girls from Curvy Kate get in touch and ask me to review a set for them, I am never more excited! Curvy Kate are my absolute favourite brand for bigger boobs, so any opportunity to get my hands on another of their glorious creations is one I will jump at! The girls asked me to do another Vlog for them - I have only ever vlogged once before and that was also for Curvy Kate! But as I can't say no to those gorgeous girls, I've done my second ever Vlog review of the Curvy Kate Ellace bra (again I am in no way a lingerie blogger or remote expert but I adore being able to review the occasional piece for you guys!). 


Bra - Curvy Kate Ellace.

 This bra is absolutely GLORIOUS. I'm wearing a 42FF and it fits like a glove. The half lace cup not only provides great support but also looks totally saucy, which I love haha I'm never adverse to a bit of sauce! The champagne and black colour combination are very classy and the bow detailing is another fantastic detail on this already incredible bra! There were panties with this set too which I got in a 22, however they are incredibly saucy haha so I decided to save those for my private time (they're Brazilian cut and the entire back is lace, which matches the lace cup detail). 

For my full review, check out my video below!

Hot Red Kitty

Recently I was contacted by the ever wonderful team at Panache Lingerie and asked to review a set for them! Having reviewed for Panache before, I was so excited because the quality of their lingerie is pretty much second to none! Now I under NO circumstances profess to be a lingerie blogger or expect but it is so much fun to get to review the odd lingerie item for ya'll! I chose a set that has been popular with my fellow bloggers and I can more than see why!


Lingerie Set - Sculptresse for Panache.

This is the Kitty set in Hot Red and it is GLORUOUS! I am wearing a 42F and a size 22 bottoms and both fit incredibly. The support is impeccable (please ignore the fact my one boob looks a tad wonky, it's the way I was standing) and the sizing is amazing. I love full cup support, having an ample chest means I need as much support as I can get and I always feel best in a full cup. However this did used to mean it was granny bra's all the way for me but thanks to brands like Panache, that problem is no more! 

 
The pattern is a super cute star print. It's very subtle and can only really be seen in certain lights which I love as its like a sneaky little surprise pattern haha! It also has adorable leopard print bow detailing on both the bra and the panties - you can never go wrong with a bit of leopard print in my opinion! 


Overall I adore this set. It makes me feel sexy and sassy and gives me the great support I need for my ample chest! The back of the panties are also completely sheer which I love because it's a saucy little twist on high waisted panties - however I decided to save that image for my private life haha!

Lots Of Love,

Winter Witch

Have you ever come across an item of clothing that you look at and think 'you are my long lost soul mate, I will wear you until you fall from my being'? I often experience huge waves of lust over an item but this deep of a love is rare. However this dress is one of those items.


Fur Gillet - Yours Clothing, Dress - Junarose, Boots - Vintage.

Before this dress I had never owned anything by Junarose, so I was instantly wary of sizing, especially as this dress is not a particularly stretchy material. But this is a 24 and it fits better than 99% of other items I own (I usually wear more 26's than 24's). I really can't find the words to express my want to wear this dress for the rest of my days. It makes me feel like a character from AHS: Coven. The bust clings perfectly to my shape and the loose, sheer sleeve provide a great little arm chub coverer if you are unsure about exposing your arms. I am 5'7 and the skirt length is flawless on me, without heels it rests just above the ground and with heels it sits perfectly at my ankle. It makes me feel so glamorous but also edgy and badass. The quality of the dress is something I have to mention too as it's fantastic. The crochet detail is gorgeous and the materials used are all of the highest grade. 


Now I've never really been one for crochet detailing but this is stunning. It runs all across the front of the bust and a long the bottom of the dress. I also love the mesh material used across the chest area, it adds a saucy little touch whilst still remaining in keeping with the rest of the dress. There are so many textures going on in this dress that ordinarily I would have been a little overwhelmed by but they all flow so perfectly together, I can't help but be madly in love with this item. 


I know I've shown ya'll these boots before but I love them more everytime I wear them. They are vintage and so comfortable, especially as someone that never wears heels of any kind! They add such a perfect finish to this dress!!


Finally, regardless of whether it's still on trend or not, I cannot get enough of brown lipstick. It's so 90's and there are so many shade options that are perfect for my colouring. I picked this one up on eBay for £1.99 and it's a Covergirl lipstick in a shade called 'Plum Whiskey'. As it's cheap, it needs topping up regularly but it's such a great colour, I don't mind at all! It's also super moisturising which is always a bonus!

My Unusual Year

So, life is mad. Absolutely mad. This year has been one of the most bizarre, ridiculous, awful and wonderful years of my life so far. I thought I would write a quick little post for ya'll, just updating you guys on what has and will be happening for me in the coming months/years!

 
I do firmly believe that sometimes you have to go through a lot of shit to get to the good bits and I feel like this is has been incredibly relevant to me this year. I started the year in an unhappy relationship, feeling trapped and sad. Now I will never say that every aspect of that relationship was negative because that is not the case but by the end the bad was outweighing the good. Despite recently acquired responsibility, I decided to leave that relationship and despite grieving for the end of something, I was happy and felt free to be myself again. I moved in with some wonderful girls and a dog and felt I was really finding myself again.
 
 
Shortly after this I made the incredibly dull decision to get into a ridiculous relationship. The individual was charming and dangerous, which at the time, I went a long with quite happily. However, very early on I realised I had made a huge mistake. This is really big information for me to share but I feel that if these things aren't talked about, they will forever remain a taboo which is the furthest possible from what they should be. I ended up pregnant and chose to have an abortion. I will not blame the other individual entirely for this as I am very much aware that I had just as much responsibility in it as they did but I did allow myself to be seduced into behaving recklessly. Shortly before discovering this I called things off with this individual because he was frankly, not a nice person. Once I informed him on the situation, he only continued to prove that to me. BUT, despite this situation being quite awful and the experience of going through all of that being equally awful, in a way, I am thankful that it did happen. It showed me that I needed to be strong and that I could be strong with what I want, who I want and how my life needs to go. It made me even more thankful for my incredible friends and family who supported me more than I could ever have asked for during that time. I feel absolutely no shame in the fact that I made the adult decision to not continue with the pregnancy, it was not right for anyone involved and continuing with it would have been far worse than deciding on having an abortion. So many women go through that in silence and feel shame and sadness over what they have done, not because they regret their decision, but because they are worried about how others may think of them if they were to find out. Trust me, anyone that makes a negative judgement on someone for making a decision that was right for them and their circumstances, is NOT worth one moment of your concern, i understand that individuals feel differently on this subject, however, that is what it is, the decision of the INDIVIDUAL.
 
 
Now, enough with the sad stuff!! After this all happened, I decided it was time to focus on ME, dating and all of that jazz was taking a firm backseat and I was planning to look for work closer to my family as after all of that because I missed them more than ever. Time went on and my housemates and I all decided to join dating sites, as we were all single and all ready for a giggle, even if no actual dates manifested, online dating is always entertaining! And that is where I met Chris, who just so happened to live back home, near my parents. Right away there was something different about him, he was so chatty and well mannered and funny. He made such an effort to get back to me and our conversations felt so natural, like I had known him forever. We arranged a date and honestly, the rest is history. As soon as I laid eyes on that man, I knew he was the one and ever since that moment he has not let go of me and not stopped proving me right. We really hated being apart so I made the formal decision to look for work close to home and Chris and I found something a lot faster than expected! Now, at the end of this month, we are moving in to our own little place together and I am starting fresh, in a new place and a new job.
 
 
If all of this weren't reason enough for me to celebrate, last night, Chris asked me to marry him, with my Grandmother's eternity ring as my engagement ring. We may not have been together for the longest time but no amount of time is going to change how I feel about this man. He is my soul mate, my lobster and he gets me, entirely. He is handsome and kind and never ever fails to cheer me up when I'm having a bad day or make me laugh. I have never been with anyone that has made me feel safe and cared for in such a way before, I don't mean in a materialistic way, I mean emotionally, spiritually and physically. His curly hair and big blue eyes are just dreamy and when you know, you know.
 
 
I hope that gives ya'll a little insight into why over this last year, I have gradually got more and more lax with blogging BUT do not fear, I will be back on it with vengeance starting this weekend and even more so when we are all moved into our new place back in Somerset. It isn't quite a New Year yet, but for me New Year starts early and the beginning of December is my new start. I cannot wait to live near my family and friends again and build a home with my future husband, whilst sharing my little fashion insights with ya'll on the regular! As always, thank you all so much for your overwhelming support and love, I really cannot fully express how humbling and wonderful it is to receive so much of both from all of you. Thank you.
