An Evening With Next Lingerie

Next Lingerie

First of all ladies, I would like to say I have come along way from blogging about my Bridget Jones style underwear. I mean, we're talking sexy pretty lacy bras and knickers now. I know I know, calm yourselves, it's still me. 

Lucky me was invited along to a blogger event with Next. We were invited for a night with Next's summer Lingerie line along with celebrity stylist Martine Alexander. Martine gave a wonderful talk on bra's and finding the perfect one for yourself. I am actually a little shocked (okay maybe a lot) at how little I know about bras. I mean, did you know a bra has a life span of 6 months?! 6 months?! Forgive me lingerie designers worldwide for I have sinned. I definitely have a couple of bras floating about that I have owned for some years (I hang my head in shame) that I should now probably replace...we're talking jurrasic underwear here...

I had a wonderful evening along with the other bloggers as we were treated to cake, bubbly, hand massages and of course, access to Next's lovely lingerie range. Next are now offering a free bra fitting service and the lovely ladies from Next fitted and helped us all find the perfect bra. It was great talking to the girls from Next's head office who are involved in design and buying for next Lingerie line. They really know their stuff and take such good care in ensuring our comfort and care is at top priority when producing lingerie lines. 

Bra Style Guide

As you can see, Next's summer collection is so sweet! I love pastel nude colours and the silk longline bra is simply gorgroues and proved very popular. Unfortunately for me I struggle to find balcony bras that suit me however the Next ladies helped me pick out a gorgeous lacy blue plunge bra that just suits me so well if I do say so myself. OH and it's mega comfy. It's one of those bras that doesn't feel like you're wearing a bra it's that comfy. Yes they do exist ladies. We'll all find the one one day.

I feel so spoiled by Next for the wonderful evening complete with a goody bag full of lovely treats and a new underwear set. I felt very much pampered, definitely the perfect girlie night.

So if you're looking for new underwear I definitely recommend a trip to Next. Go ahead and get measured andget some great advice on styles and sizing! If you're anything like me you'll become and underwear hoarder and face great difficulty in closing your underwear draw....

Sudio Sweden - Klang Headphones

Eek I have been extremely excited to write this post. I think it has to be one of my favourite features on my blog yet. The wonderful Sudio Sweden, a premum Swedish headphone company got in touch a few weeks back and informed me of their new range of sleek headphones. Being someone who spends the majority of their day from my commute to sitting at my desk to walking the dog to falling asleep with my iPod plugged in I'm always looking for good quality headphones and these hit the nail on the head. I recieved a pair of white Sudio Sweden Klang headphones.

My favourite thing about them is their gorgeous design. They are so chic looking (ooo la la) and really give off a luxury look. Don't laugh at me but seriously, they go so well with my Michael Kors handbags because of the gold trim. I feel ever so suave in the mornings commuting to work with my Michael Kors tote in arm and a pair of Sudio Klang headphones draped across me. Meanwhile internally I am mentally dancing and singing Beyonce to myself like a mad woman.

They also come with a sweet little pouch to store them in. They really are an elegant brand of headphones. Klang, the model I have wraps around the back of your neck which I thought I'd find weird and struggle with but if anything it makes it a lot easier in the mornings when I am stood at the Starbucks sleepily mumbling my order and my headphones can just rest across me. Mega points for efficiency Sudio! Even in the gym (yes I am still going...just about) they are so much comfier form to have in then my normal headphones due to lack of wires dangling in my face causing myself to knock my ipod off the cross trainer and for everyone to stare....This has happened on more than one occasion....

I am so chuffed with these gorgeous headphones as their sound is so crisp and clear and they look so stylish. May I go forth on my morning commutes listing to Beyonce whilst looking pretty sleek....okay the headphones look sleek, I on the other hand will still be falling down the met steps and stumbling my way to work looking not so graceful.

Sudio Sweden are offering 15% discount on any order with the promo code 'Laura15' Enjoy! :)

Walk Like A Princess In Carvela

I'm going to jump right in here and say have you seen my pretty sparkly new shoes that make me feel like a princess?! It has been my goal for ages to find a pair of sparkly heels and these are perfect! Just look at those purrrrdy bows.

My older brother is getting married in a month and admittedly I have been a bit relaxed about sorting an outfit for the whole thing. I mean I found a dress months and months ago. It's blue and can only be described as a proper Cinderella dress. You know now much I love dressing up as a princess at any given opportunity. So I bought the pretty dress and figured I could sort the rest out later. One month before the wedding and there I was with no shoes, handbag or accessories. Oh and I have no idea if the dress still fits me having consumed an awful lot of chocolate, cake and general food over these past few months. What can I say, I am a girl who likes her food.

Anyways, having found nothing too my liking I was highlighted to 'Shoeaholics' which ladies, if you like shoes, you're about to die and go to shoe heaven. Shoeaholics is a fantastic site that sells designer women's shoes at massive discounts. I stumbled across these gorgeous Carvela Kurt Geiger nude heels at £35, reduced from £110. Yehuh you read that right. I believe every wardrobe needs a solid and stunning pair of nude shoes, especially for the summer. I feel these are absolutely perfect!

Aren't they stunning? I can't wait to team them up with my dress and feel like a princess for the day! Do they go with my dress? Yes. Can I walk in them? Probably not. I look forward to face planting the floor on many occasions whilst wearing them but hey, at least I will look pretty doing so. I shall be sure blog about it at a later date when I do. Has anyone else used Shoeaholic before? I am definitely going to be a regular user.
