Why Women Love Playtex

These long winter days have lead me to dig out my TV Show DVD box-sets and I decided to start with a favourite of mine... Mad Men.

I love the sixties style glamour, the beautiful Marilyn Monroe style curves and of course the amazing lingerie and underwear garments that women of the sixties used to wear.

However when I recently moved on to watching the second series, I noticed that season two episode six titled Maiden Form, is all about an advertising pitch for a huge lingerie brand ... Playtex.

Of course (being free lance member of the Playtex Lingerie Blogging Team) I became very excited at the idea of the handsomely seductive Don Draper planning his ‘Playtex Pitch’.

WIN A Spa Break with Playtex

For over four decades, Playtex have been designing supportive, comfort bras for the modern day women. Even the wonderful Mary Portas has reccommend the brand.

And this month Playtex have teamed up with high street department store Debenhams in thier latst promotion to offer one lucky mother and daughter the chance to win a luxery spa break at Champneys this Mother's Day.

Enjoy and Good Luck!

Amour Votre Valentines Lingerie

Yes ladies, it’s one of my favourite lingerie events of the year, Valetines day. People always seem to get down on this time of year, as they see it as a waste of time and another commercial holiday.

A part of me agrees, but I think that it does not matter if you are single or in a relationship, use Valentine’s Day as a day to love yourself and your life.

If you are single have a Valentine’s night with the girls, we see Carrie and Mirander go on a Valentines meal in the Sex and the City Movie.

If you are in a relationship, don’t worry aboFut buying each other expensive gifts (even though it is very nice, don’t get me wrong) but enjoy the relationship that you have. And of course, if you are in either of these situations, treat yourself to some new sexy lingerie.

Not only will it boost your confidence it will boost you mood and attitude towards your bodies. So below I have scouted out my favourite lingerie stores to bring you…

Beautiful Boudoir Photography

As you have all read, I am a big fan of a healthy body image, if you are six foot and a size ten or if you at four foot and a size 14. Women around the world are constantly giving themselves a hard time for not being a “perfect” size.

That is why I am in love with the latest craze of ‘boudoir and pin-up photography’ for women. What a better way to boost ones confidence and create sex appeal within seconds that is all wrapped up in one perfect snap.

I recently discovered the fabulous Whirlie Girl Photography, US Based Boudoir Photography, by a wonderful lady named Angela.

Based in Cape Coral, Florida, Angela is a specialist photographer in… you guested it… boudoir photography.

She explains on her site “There’s no better feeling in the world than helping someone new every day feel beautiful and sexy. I love being given the opportunity to help women see themselves in a light, which most never do. We can all look at ourselves in the mirror and think, “hey, you look good today”…but let’s be honest…for most of us…it doesn’t’ happen every day. Sadly, for some women, they do not see that beauty at all. I LOVE helping these women see what others see when they look at them.

In my eyes women like Angela deserve a medal, as they are a real inspiration to women. Even Gok Wan loves a boudoir shoot in his hit TV show of “How to Look Good Naked”.

A Boudoir Session with Angela

A boudoir session with Angela will help to improve self-confidence and worth for women of all ages, sizes and ethnicities. I have included a few of my personal favourite lingerie style boudoir photos, to view more click here.

Find Whirlie Girl Photography

For me a boudoir photography session really is the perfect way to feel sexy, confident and inspired as a woman. We should embrace our bodies more and stop picking at our faults.

If my lovelies readers are inspired by this article and would like a boudoir photography session with Angelia then you can visit her at Whirlie Girl Photography or find her on Facebook for all her latest updates and competitions.

David Beckham Bodywear Collection For H&M

Yes ladies, I did the same thing as you all did, jump for joy, when I heard that Mr David “Golden Balls” Beckham was launching an body wear collection for the popular high street brand H&M.

We have all seen ‘those Armani adverts’ of Becks looking lush in his tight y-front pants. However when H&M released the ‘official pictures’ this week, I just had to do a blog post on the wonderful Mr Beckham.

According to reports, David is set to reveal his latest collection to 162 million people during a Super Bowl ad break on February 5th (which is costing him a mere two million pounds).

The ad will show David’s nine-piece body wear collection (which of course will be modelled by him) and will be launched across 1,800 H&M stores. I for one cannot wait for this video.

So until this blessed day arrives here are a few images of the actual underwear itself.

Kelly Brook’s ‘New’ Look Lingerie Collection

Beginning her life as a model/TV presenter, and previously making it into my top celebrity lingerie campaigns blog post, the curvaceous Kelly Brook is yet again about to launch another lingerie campaign for high street retailer New Look.

Whilst showing off her stunning curves (that are the envy of many women) Kelly recently discussed her lingerie likes and dislikes, her love for Agent Provocateur, Victoria’s Secrets (ah a women after my own heart) and of course her New Look Lingerie collection, along with how to maintain her sex appeal at the age of 32 (as if it was ever an issue for her).

Kelly expressed how us ladies should “Embrace our curves and invest in a good push up bra” and her key to maintaining her sex appeal after all these years in the business is “Confidence”.

Wish List: Kelly Brook Lingerie

After seeing this sneak peek preview of Kelly’s fabulous range, I have to say she has definitely made it onto my lingerie wish list for spring/summer 2012.

From sophisticated and sleek black satin to sexy lace and polka dot lingerie sets, Kelly’s range will be an investment sooner rather than later.

Enjoy and a happy (belated) new year to you all,
