Valentine’s Day lingerie – Top underwear picks to wear on V-Day night

My underwear drawer is just as important to me as my wardrobe. I absolutely love treating myself to new lingerie because it always makes  feel amazing whenever I’m wearing one of my favourite sets.

I can’t tell you exactly why that is… but for some reason if I start the day in nice undies I’m always in such a good mood.

Does anyone else get that… or am I just a weirdo?

I’ve selected some of my favourite items that I think will be the perfect under garments for my Valentine’s Day outfit. Check out my OOTD for inspiration on what to wear this Valentine’s Day.

The most romantic day of the year has got to be all about lace, sparkle, pretty floral prints and romantic shades of red and pink colours.

Here are my top picks…

Triangle bras

These Kylie Jenner inspired bras are so stunning and bang on trend this season. The pretty floral prints and lace fabric will bring some girlineas and sexiness to your date night.

  1. Dark red lace bra , Victoria’s Secret
  2. Grey floral bra, Primark
  3. Cream and colourful print bra, Accessorize

Lacy thongs

I am all about lacy knickers! Lace in any colour makes me so happy and they just look so pretty in matching underwear sets.

  1. Turquoise, Victoria’s Secret
  2. Hot pink, H&M
  3. Red lace, H&M
  4. Pastel blue, Primark

Push-up bra

To really get your date hot under the collar or to show off your assets in your favourite top – a little bit of padding is just what you need.


I absolutely adore my Victoria’s Secret red push-up bra because of it’s low cup, lace fabric and sparkly gems (glitter is a MUST in my undies drawer). And of course the optional red clip on bow for the back to make you feel like a real VS angel!

I’m absolutely obsessed with Victoria’s Secret underwear but I have never ever bought items in England because they are SO overpriced. All these stunning VS pieces were less than £10 on my trips to America- what an absolute bargain!

You can obviously guess… my suitcase was stuffed full of bras and knickers.  I can only imagine what security must have thought!

You really don’t have to break the budget with buying nice underwear I promise. High-street stores like H&M and Primark offer gorgeous lingerie for such a small price.

I hope this post has helped give you a little inspiration for your lingerie choice this Valentine’s Day. 💕 Check out my post for homemade peanut butter cups to treat your loved one (or yourself!) and my recipe for pink cocktails.

#FridayFavourites || The bomber jacket

I am absolutely loving the bomber jacket trend for this Autumn/Winter season. There’s something a little bit Grease Lightning about this look that will give your outfit a real retro feel! But if you don’t feel like going the full monty in a Pink Ladies get-up, opt for a classic khaki or navy shade- the perfect colour to style any off-duty winter look.

Bomber jackets are an essential for these cold casual days- multi-tasking to shelter your body from the rain whilst keeping you cosy and warm. I love Topshop’s range of the faux fur addition to bombers- keeping you super snug inside its fluffy lining.

I’ve just purchased myself a navy bomber from a shopoholic’s app called Vinted and I already can’t wait to style my new jacket!

I thought I would spread some St Paddy’s day cheer and share my favourite looks from Adore Me’s new collection of lingerie. 

I absolutely love buying new underwear and there’s something about wearing a matching set that really makes me happy for the whole day. It sounds silly but matching underwear always puts me in such good mood.

I was lucky enough to get an exclusive look at the new collection and here are my favourite picks:

DIY: how I glammed up my mittens

I don’t know about you but when it comes to buying clothes and accessories, I always have the perfect vision of an item I want in my head and expect to see it in the shop, but can never find exactly what I am looking for.

After loosing one of my FAVOURITE pairs of mittens and with the weather being so freezing, I was desperate to find a new set of gloves just as fab! What I loved about my old pair was that they were just so girlie and cute with lace and bows. So I was a women on a mission to find a new favourite…or create my own.

The best I could find were these navy blue finger less gloves from Accessorize in the sale at £7.50. I loved the design of the sequins and gems, and the silver and pastel blue colours of them too, but whenever I wore them the pretty pattern was hidden under my coats and jumpers 😦

So I decided why not create my own pattern for the top of the gloves and to my surprise it worked out very easy and therapeutic to do.

My grandma is AMAZING when it comes to things like this- she can literally make anything, from handbags and chunky knit cardigans, to ornaments and plates. I took her out for coffee and asked her for some inspiration and some help.

She showed me her collections of haberdashery- I was in ribbon and lace heaven. The funnest bit was deciding what pattern I wanted to create which I kind of already had in mind but now with so many choices of different coloured ribbon, lace and cute beads, I found it hard to decide. I did get a bit carried away with testing ideas but eventually found the perfect look for my mittens.

I wanted to stick with the colour scheme of blues and created this design:

  • Electric blue ribbon
  • Pretty white lace
  • Sparkly blue and silver thin ribbon
  • Powder blue bow

It was so easy to do considering I am nowhere near as talented as my grandma! You just need some cotton to match the colours your adding together (I used blue and white), needles for sowing, pins for keeping the pattern in place and a good eyesight for threading!

My grandma gave me her adorable foam jumper to stick my pins and needles in so I couldn’t lose them- and believe me they are easy to lose sight of.

Once I had sown everything to the large bit of blue ribbon I then sowed it onto the mittens and I was so pleased with the final look!

My sister loved them so much she’s even asked me to decorate her a pair.  I hope you like them too!

Exclusive look: Lover.ly launches first-ever bridesmaid collection

Wedding planners over at Lover.ly have today launched their premiere collection of bridesmaid dresses and I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of some of the gorgeous pieces. Studio-Session---Loverly-2484

From full-length dresses to stylish jumpsuits, the ‘Eva Loverly’ collection boasts a variety of vintage-inspired outfits to help all bridesmaids stand out and look flawless on the special occasion. So if you’re planning your wedding and looking for inspiration these lover.ly designs are sure to bring tradition and glamour with a hint of vintage to your special day.

Studio Session - Loverly-2431

With lush fabrics of lace, jacquard and chiffon you won’t want to leave these garments in your wardrobe for too long.

That’s what I love about this collection- you can look fab wearing one of the garments holding the veil down the aisle but you can also look lush wearing the outfit on another occasion, styling it with different accessories and make-up to suit the event.

They are those outfits that you will turn to in your wardrobe and think ‘I’m glad I bought you’.

The stunning pieces, co-designed by top Anthropologie seller, Eva Franco,  instantly took me back to fond memories of being a bridesmaid at my auntie’s wedding and there is no doubt this collection will make any future bridesmaids feel like a princess just as I did.

Studio Session - Loverly-2472 (1)

The great range of cuts, patterns and textures allow bride’s to find the perfect outfit-match for their bridesmaids with styles to flatter every silhouette and personality.

I personally think the beautiful lace texture on the backless dress would make a lovely mother-of-the-bride outfit. Paired with heels and a clutch in nude or gold in the winter, pastel accessories in the Spring, and bright coral shades for the summer, it’s a dress for all seasons.

Spring time is a very popular time for weddings- the weather is warm, pretty flowers are blossoming and everybody is glowing from the sunshine. So it is always the most exciting time to wear bridesmaids dresses because the colours of the season are so pretty and patterns so floral.

Studio Session - Loverly-2176

The collection’s trending pastel colours of mint shades and baby pinks are perfect for this upcoming season of special occasions and with the vintage flair, these dresses will make any bridesmaid feel like a princess.

But my favourite piece of the collection has got to be the bang on-trend plunge neckline jumpsuit which immediately caught my eye! I love the chiffon ribbon that brings you in at the waist- great for flattering every body shape and grabbing attention.

Studio Session - Loverly-2179 (3)

As you’ve seen on the catwalk it’s all about the 60’s flares this 2015 Spring season and what better way to rock that look than wear them as a jumpsuit at a wedding! Yes- very brave but so STYLISH and so FAB!

This collection really brings a unique twist to the traditional bridesmaid wardrobe. I absolutely love co-ordinate outfits and this gorgeous patterned matching top and skirt looks so classic and stylish. Bridesmaids in co-ords will without a doubt make your guests think wow… this wedding has got style!

So if you’re struggling on what you want your bridesmaids to wear on your special day or you don’t know yourself what to wear for the occasion, Lover.ly’s first-ever line of bridesmaid garments are sure to feature the perfect outfit for your save the date.

Weddings aren’t just great for seeing family and drinking champagne to toast to the happy couple…in my eyes- whether i’m the bridesmaid or the guest- it’s totally about the outfits too and admiring how glam everybody looks!

This collection brings a fresh new take on the traditional wedding day wardrobe and that’s what I love. It’s vintage meets classic meets on-trend styles.

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at some of the new designs as much as I did and have some inspiration for any upcoming weddings.
