    It’s been a long time since the last Brunch Club as we were all busy in August, so there was a lot to catch up on this time. Our first…

    Having had an extremely busy couple of months at work, when I recently received a press release from Hunkemöller about an influencer collaboration I just ignored it. After all, they…

I’ve been blogging for 15 years now, and have covered a variety of different topics over the years. What started as an online diary of sorts back in 2003, became a shiny online magazine filled with articles on fashion, feminism, sex and relationships, before slowly turning into a place for me to write about things/places I like. The thing is… I’m not sure if I want this space to be a reviews blog. I’m not really sure what I want it to be any more. Recently I’ve been feeling less

What is a blogger to do when a favourite lingerie brand releases a stunning new collection that doesn’t come in her size? She enlists the help of a guest reviewer, or course! Full disclosure though… Rarely Wears Lipstick paid for the lingerie set reviewed below. There are few brands from whom I will always open an email, but Playful Promises – with their wide size range, excellent looks and (for an income-challenged gal like me) very attractive prices – is one of them.

Our autumn Brunch Club adventures continued on Sunday 28th October 2018 at the City branch of Caravan, 22 Bloomberg Arcade, London EC4N 8AR. This chain of London restaurants had been on our To Do list for a while and we were all very excited about trying some of the fantastic sounding things on their brunch menu.

If you’re in Instagram and are at all interested in underwear, you may have seen Heist’s campaign for their soon to be launched new range. Best known for their tights that don’t roll down or dig in, Heist are now expanding their offering to include what they call ‘bodywear’, and they’re doing a good job of creating some buzz around the launch by channeling a collective loathing of uncomfortable underwear in a couple of different ways. The coming soon page on their website doesn’t give much away about what types

It’s been a long time since the last Brunch Club as we were all busy in August, so there was a lot to catch up on this time. Our first post-summer outing took place on Sunday 30th September 2018 at The Good Egg, Ground Floor Kingly Court, Kingly Street, London W1B 5PW and they don’t take bookings so we planned to get there early so that we wouldn’t have to wait. However, we didn’t recheck the opening times after moving our plans from Saturday to Sunday and so ended up
