Blush Lingerie: Christmas Giveaway



BlushLingerie_lingerie_1Last month I featured the AW14 collection from Blush Lingerie, a beautifully confident range of underwear from a brand whose mission is “to provide flirtatious and affordable luxury to women worldwide with the creation of sensual, voluptuous and urbane intimates.”

Blush have partnered with StyleOnTheCouch for this amazing Christmas giveaway, where the winner will be awarded $250 (or equivalent) to spend on the Blush line of fun, flirty and feminine intimates. For some ideas, you might want to explore the styles within Blush’s Holiday Shop, such as their ‘Festive Soiree‘ selection; or search for your ‘Perfect Match’ lingerie set here.  Alternatively, select some styles from the Blush Lingerie ‘Essentials‘ collection, such as the multiway longline bra I’m wearing in this post.

Since Blush ship worldwide, entries from all locations are welcome :) So, take a look at the sophisticated style of Blush Lingerie and luxuriate in pin-up perfect lingerie – let Blush indulge you with silky comfort and exciting elegance; lace and loveliness combined with a flair for the naughty.  A perfect Christmas gift for a loved one, or just a very special gift-to-self.  Good Luck!

Lingerie & Loungewear: Uye Surana



uyesurana2It is not often that I find a brand that straddles both lingerie and loungewear styles to produce delicate, comfortable, and modern clothing.  Uye Surana is one of those brands, bringing us both soft lace and satin intimates, everyday loungewear and silk and jersey daywear.

Uye Surana, (pronounced Yoo Sur-rah-nuh) was created by designer Monica Wesley, who formed the brand name from a combination of family names to reflect her Japanese and European descent.  A former student of Parsons School of Design, Wesley creates a romantic, relaxed aesthetic throughout her collections.

Cold, winter weekends provide me with the perfect opportunity to live (indoors!) in these styles.  These photos were taken on my birthday weekend at the wonderful Luton Hoo hotel and spa, a beautiful 5 star retreat just outside of London.  The chance to slow down at weekends is gold dust in the run up to Christmas, so I’m going to get comfortable, and enjoy it :)

‘I Can’t Go Back To Yesterday Because I Was A Different Person Then’ – Alice in Wonderland. (Lavish Alice Jumpsuit)


WildAtHeart_flowersAlice in Wonderland is one of my favourite books for the wealth of meaning (and more hidden meaning) within the text.  Themes of dreaming, life as a meaningless puzzle and the manipulation of language all tie in with the everyday themes I am presented with in my work as a psychologist.  The book is a fabulous read for children or adults alike, so if you haven’t yet read Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, be sure to find yourself a copy to immerse yourself in.

On to another Alice, Lavish Alice, whose AW14 collection contains some great budget buys for your party season, from sleek black jumpsuits (which I am wearing in this post) to dresses full of sequins and sparkle. Even if you are not shopping for holiday clothing, Lavish Alice have several minimal and sleek styles within their collection, perfect for day-to-night wear, such as their crossover bralet dress and their culotte crossover crop jumpsuit.

A youthful brand, also selling accessories and Jeffery Campbell shoes, this is one rabbit hole of a website that you can certainly get lost in a while. To view the entire collection, click HERE.
