This post contains a bra that was sent for review
I have been wanting to try the Triumph Magic Wire bra ever since the lovely Poppy raved about it back in September last year. The metal underwiring has been replaced by a piece of silicone which offers the same support without any of the digging in. House of Fraser very kindly offered to send me some underwear and this was the only possible choice for me. A nude bra is hardly the most exciting piece but under certain tops or dresses it is essential and is certainly a staple of my wardrobe. After wearing this all day to run various errands, I can confirm that this is the comfiest bra I have ever tried on and I will be buying it in all its different variations, it really is that good!

Recently, I have found that I have been dressing up less and less, especially at the weekend. This is partly practical- it is difficult to hoover the car in a mini skirt but partly because the clothes I am choosing aren't (necessarily) as unique. When I was a student, I spent a lot of time hunting down bargains in charity shops whereas now I order most of my clothes online, or pick them up in supermarkets. That isn't to say I don't love those clothes, just that I suppose my wardrobe is more generic than it used to be! This blouse is one such item, I picked it up in the sale at Sainsbury's after spilling some food down my front (I am an adult, I promise!) and have been wearing it nonstop ever since. I don't usually get on with sleeves but these are really floaty and the loose shape means that I am not boiling to death in it which is always a risk in the summer. The embroidery on this also makes it much more interesting and I really love the contrast of the bright blue with the white, it feels very fresh and summery!
I have been raving about Elemis Pro Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm over on Instagram but it deserves a mention here too. I got a sample on the front of Marie Claire magazine and it has already become an integral part of my beauty routine. It makes my skin look glowy without being shiny and I really love it! I have been applying it onto freshly cleansed skin under my beloved Dr Jart BB cream and looking much more alive as a result. It isn't cheap at £35 but a little goes a long way so I may just buy a couple more magazines instead...
My beloved Warehouse skinnies have been looking a bit worse for wear recently but they are just so comfy that I am reluctant to give them up just yet, here's hoping a similar pair come up in the sale! Usually when the weather hots up I go for bright nail varnishes but recently I have been loving more autumnal shades, maybe because they contrast so well with my summery clothes? There is an exception to every rule though and I have been wearing Nails Inc Gel Effect Kensington Passage nail varnish on my toenails ever since I got it in my Glamour beauty box. It is the perfect coral shade and even makes
pasty pale old me look like I have a tan!
Have you tried the Triumph Magic Wire bra yet? Are you as big a fan as me?
P.S. I was sent this bra to review but if I didn't love it, I wouldn't feature it!
