From Paris, with Love

I was invited down to the Chantelle showroom a little while ago and had an opportunity to gush over some of the most gorgeous lingerie I had ever seen. Beautiful colours and designs were on offer for us to try, and being a company I hadn't experienced before, I was eager to explore.
The company, which later became to be known as Chantelle, was founded in 1876. They first started with corsets and have expanded throughout the years to become the most sought after lingerie line from France. It's no surprise as each piece of lingerie is truly a work of art and is made with the softest fabric. It feels nothing but luxurious to those who wear it.

Chantelle collections include bras, pants, shapewear, and they also have a chic boutique with a range of couture pieces, including waist clinchers, chemises, bustlers and garters. You'll be spoilt for choice so I would advise adding a few of these to your Christmas list ;)

Christmas came early for those in attendance as we were gifted a lingerie set of our choice. I couldn't wait to try on the bras and decided that I simply couldn't pass up on this purple Superbe set.
The plunge bra is underwired, extremely comfortable and with the wide band, I feel fully supported. The lace is so silky smooth with zero itch and there has been no sign of abrasion after wearing it almost constantly. The cups are three quarters of the way up and although I feel secure, the bra still allows for a little allure. Bras go from D-H, but there are plans to expand! Exciting times ahead. 
The high waisted briefs aren't shapewear but the elastic certainly holds me in. I'm not one for thongs or anything else of that ilk, I want nothing but full coverage and these briefs do a great job.

I really would encourage you to give Chantelle a try. You can buy from their online store, but you can also head to one of the various department stores, including House of Fraser and Harrods.

'til next time.

Love and hugs,

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
