The Great Online Escape

Escaping everyday life used to be about booking a holiday in the sunshine and getting away from it all. These days, however, finding the cash for an overseas trip is becoming increasingly tricky so it's just as well there are many more options for escape available, thanks to the internet. Even if you can't jet... Continue Reading →

Review: Joanna’s Wardrobe Cherry Girdle

After I wrote about Joanna's Wardrobe last week, they emailed to offer me an item from their own range to review - the super cute Cherry roll-on girdle that I'd already added to my Joanna's Wardrobe wishlist! For those of you unfamiliar with vintage lingerie terminology, a 'roll-on' girdle is basically a very deep suspender... Continue Reading →

It's ideal if you have no problem finding clothing that fits and if you're permanently at home to await postal... Continue Reading →

I remember when…

I remember when real-word meetings of online communities were fun. When groups of users from a particular website would get together at someone's house, a coffee shop or in a pub and discuss the things they are passionate about. The things that brought them together.About 6 years ago I met up with a group of... Continue Reading →
