The Best Bras For Hard-To-Wear Dresses

Happy Monday everyone. 🙂

I’ve recently discovered that finding a practical bra for hard-to-wear dresses can be a bit of a challenge. I’m talking backless, plunging, one-shoulder dresses and everything else in between.

If your lingerie drawer doesn’t quite measure up to your occasionwear wardrobe, keep scrolling for some weird and wonderful bra solutions that will save the day, keeping you lifted and in place, even in the most challenging dresses.

Strawberry Prosecco Smash Cocktail

Hey everyone,

The last cocktail recipe we shared, Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos, went down an absolute treat so I’ve been on the lookout for another delicious summer cocktail to share with you ever since. 🙂

I stumbled across this recipe on a beautiful blog called These Northern Roots. If you love bubbles and strawberries, this cocktail is the one for you. The best part? It’s super fast and easy to make. Keep scrolling for the ingredients and directions…

*Makes one cocktail*

What you’ll need…

3x strawberries, diced 
1 ounce cream of coconut
1/2 tsp honey  
1/2 lemon, squeezed 
Prosecco

Directions…

  1. Muddle strawberries in a cocktail shaker until juices release.
  2. Squeeze lemon, add honey and cream of coconut. Add little ice.
  3. Shake vigorously for ten seconds and pour into glass. FYI, It’s super thick, so you don’t need to strain all of it if you don’t want to. You can pour it straight into the glass if you’d like!
  4. Top with champagne, garnish with thyme (optional) and enjoy!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a lovely weekend. 🙂

Swimwear Edit – Why it’s all about the one piece!

Hey ladies

It’s that time of year when everyone is in full holiday mode, maybe you were quick off the mark and sorted all your holiday clothes early in the seaosn, but if you’re like me, you’ll have left it last minute! I am heading off to Barcelona next week, just for 3 nights and I’ve been hunting down swimwear the past few days! (I know, last minute or what!!)

I have found some STUNNING one pieces, I’m definitely more a full swimsuit gal instead of a bikini gal, I just find them far more flattering!

What Did I Buy?

I picked myself up this polka dot beauty – The fit is gorgeous and I love the belt detail, really cinches in the waist!

Workwear Edit

Hey ladies

After a Q&A with lots of you lovely ladies over on my Instagram recently you told me you want to see more workwear on the blog! You asked.. and we delivered 🙂

Come to think of it, it is probably an area we have neglected a little over the past months, but we will sort that ASAP. Starting this month with a really meaty Workwear Edit, my top picks, across several stores featuring lots of tops, blouses, shirts, skirts, dresses and trousers, all of which would be ideal for the office, and all great investment pieces for your wardrobe which could be easily mixed and matched with one another – The key to a good versatile, well used wardrobe!

I have, where possible tried to introduce colour too, too often we recah for the ‘safe’ options of black, navy or grey, and whilst it is vital to have basics like this in a wardrobe it’s also nice to introduce pops of colour, whatever the season.

Any good work wear wardrobe will need hardworking versatile pieces like, ‘good fitting black cigarette pants, an office appropriate summer dress, versatile blazers, and lots of shirts and tops to mix and match with skirts and trousers.

Really hope you enjoy this Work Wear Edit, and stay tuned for next months edition

Recipe: Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos

Hey everyone. 🙂

Today was such a beautiful day. The clear blue skies and sunshine got me thinking about refreshing cocktail recipes for summer soirées with friends and family.

I came across this one on Justine Celina’s blog and absolutely fell in love with these late summer sippers. The Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos combine sweet blueberries with refreshing lemon, cucumber and mint. A splash of soda water adds just the right amount of sparkle. Best of all, the mojitos are free of refined sugars and made with all natural ingredients – so the next time you’re craving a cooling summer cocktail, indulge yourself with a fresh twist on the classic mojito!

Ingredients

For the Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup4 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Juice from half a lemon

For the Blueberry, Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojito1.5oz Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup

  • 2 oz of gin
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 5 leaves fresh mint
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • Soda water
  • Ice

Optional GarnishEdible flowers (I used pansies)

  • Cocktail skewers
  • slice A of lemon
  • Fresh blueberries
  • A sprig of mint

Instructions

  • If you’re making floral ice cubes, begin by sourcing your flowers, washing them and dropping them into the ice cube trays to freeze. You really can’t mess this up — so experiment with different flower place- ments within each cube and have fun with it!
  • Start on your Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup. Add blueberries and water to a medium sauce pan over low heat. The blueberries will begin to break down quickly — help them along by pressing them with a potato masher to aid in extracting the juices. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the blueberry juice into a heatproof bowl, using the potato masher press the juice through the strainer. Reserve the juice for the Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup and discard the skins.
  • Add the blueberry juice and honey back to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to thicken for 10 minutes.
  • Turn off the burner. Add the juice from half a lemon to your saucepan, stirring until incorporated. Allow your Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup to cool before using it in the Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojitos.
  • Begin assembling your cocktail by adding lemon juice, mint and cucumber to a cocktail shaker and muddling them together with a pestle. Add Blueberry Honey Simple Syrup and a few ice cubes. Shake vigorously until the cocktail shaker becomes cold.
  • Add the contents of the cocktail shaker to your glass along with your gin. Pour soda water overtop to fill your glass to the desired level.
  • Garnish your Blueberry Lemon and Cucumber Gin Mojito with a slice of lemon and a few blueberries on a cocktail skewer.
  • Add a sprig of mint, or a few more edible flowers and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed the post!
