Review: The Assistant

I've reviewed a few films on this blog, but I never thought I'd be adding one to the 'staying in' category until 2020 arrived with its global pandemic, lockdowns, and cinema closures! I was recently sent a preview link for The Assistant, which is written and directed by Kitty Green and is about an ambitious... Continue Reading →

Brunch Club London Awards 2019

As we're always getting asked which are our favourite brunch spots, to celebrate our first three years of brunching together we decided to go back through all our old reviews and select the ones we enjoyed the most.

Chiltern Firehouse, W1U

In the past we have decided not to review places when we don't have all four brunch clubbers in attendance, but we have decided to... Continue Reading →

Review: Latex lingerie from Honour

I haven't written about latex much since my 2012 post in the fabulous fashion fabrics series, so I was surprised when the lovely folk at Honour got in touch to ask if I'd like to review a lingerie set from their website. However, once I started browsing, I quickly realised this wouldn't be quite as... Continue Reading →

Review: Gabi Fresh x Playful Promises

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... Continue Reading →

Our autumn Brunch Club adventures continued on Sunday 28th October 2018 at the City branch of Caravan, 22 Bloomberg Arcade, London EC4N 8AR.
