A couple of weeks ago F&F asked me to be their Valentine, which I was very excited about, and of course I said yes! As a little Valentine’s treat, they offered to send me a lingerie set of my choice along with a few other luxury treats, so I made my pick and waited for the postman, and a few days ago my pretty little parcel arrived!
The set I chose is the Alice set, with a plunge bra and lace french knickers. Together, the two pieces cost a total of just £15.00 (or £14.00 with a thong), but the quality is amazing and they look and feel a lot more expensive than they are. The black lace is absolutely beautiful and luxuriously soft, and looks stunning on. Both pieces are also very, very comfortable and they fit perfectly to size, which is great as there’s nothing more annoying than uncomfortable undies!
F&F say that, ‘whether you’re in a relationship or not, wearing great underwear gives you a confidence boost like no other’, and I completely agree. I feel fab wearing this set – it’s gorgeous! So, if you want to treat yourself to some affordable but lovely lingerie this Valentine’s Day, why not check out F&F’s range?
I also received a few other Valentine’s themed treats in my gift box that I’m really looking forward to using/eating! I really like Essie products, so I was pleased to find a mini set of Essie nail varnishes in the box. The purple shade is especially nice! The Soap & Glory products look great too, I mean, shimmery pink body lotion is my kind of lotion! And of course, you can never go wrong with Hotel Chocolat chocolate. How pretty is that lollipop?!
I’m really looking forward to Valentine’s Day now, especially as it’s my birthday too! What will you be doing on the day?

Every woman needs a good quality red lipstick in her life to emphasise her confidence, and without a doubt, Illamasqua’s Tramp is mine. I bought Tramp last month in Illamasqua’s January sale for just £5 and instantly fell in love with it, and here’s why…
Firstly, how gorgeous does this lipstick look? I’ve always been a fan of Illamasqua’s classy black packaging, and this is a fine example of such. The packaging is practical too, as the lid is quite large and clicks firmly into place so there’s no chance of it coming off in your bag, which we all know can lead to a messy disaster!
The first thing that hit me when I opened this lipstick was its scent. It doesn’t smell plasticky or chemically like some cheap lipsticks do, rather, it smells exactly like Krispy Kreme doughnuts – delicious, AND without the calories! I honestly spent a good minute smelling it before I even applied it. It’s just that good.
In terms of application, Tramp has it all. I can honestly say this is the creamiest lipstick that I own, which to me is the sign of a high quality lipstick. It smooths on effortlessly and feels extremely moisturising on the lips, and believe me when I say that the feeling lasts… Not once have my lips felt dry whilst wearing this. In fact, they feel noticeably softer after use, and there’s no need to apply a lip balm underneath or over the top. Illamasqua lipstick has decent staying power too. It always survives numerous drinks throughout the day, but it doesn’t stay put completely after eating, so does need a bit of touching up every now and then.
Tramp is a bright rose red, with an undertone of blue – a beautiful, classic shade that makes me feel sophisticated and sexy. Ideal for Valentine’s Day! I have experimented with several red lipsticks in the past and have found that blue reds look best against my pale skin tone and, though it doesn’t really show in the picture above, Tramp really brings out my blue eyes! My eyes are my favourite feature, so I’m always happy when I find a product which shows them off. Tramp also has a matte finish, which I prefer in red lipsticks as I don’t think bold colours need shine as they’re already eye-catching enough.
Unfortunately, I have just discovered that Tramp has been discontinued, which is really disappointing as I have lost it as soon as I found it! So, for now, I will be keeping this beauty for best, and in the meantime I will attempt to find a duplicate, or an Illamasqua replacement shade. Any suggestions?

This morning I received a fun little package in the post from Naughty Kitty, who sells ‘Cupcakes with a twist’. The package contained a cupcake, but not just any cupcake… A naughty cupcake!
I must apologise for the quality of my photographs at this point… I was so excited about getting into my cupcake (excuse the pun) that I was rather hasty with my photography and failed to realise that the cupcake clashed with the background, but you can still see how wonderfully the cupcakes are presented. Mine came wrapped in clear cellophane with a red ribbon around the top, but some of Naughty Kitty’s cupcakes are presented in gift boxes or wrapped in tissue paper.
After excitedly unwrapping the cellophane, this is what I found…
As you can see, the cupcake itself is absolutely adorable, and the presentation is lovely! The luxurious-looking base is made from sturdy card and the ‘cupcake’ is actually a sexy pair of undies. I really love the attention to detail put into the cupcake, with the frilly edge of the undies layered to look like icing, and the little silk flower on top really is the cherry on the cake.
I couldn’t wait to see what the undies in my cupcake looked like, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality! I received a frilly pink pair from Next, still with tags on, and they are very, very pretty.
As well as lingerie cupcakes, Naughty Kitty also makes cupcakes using babywear, and all the lingerie and babywear comes in a variety of sizes, so there’s something for everyone!. As such, they would make brilliant gifts or treats for different occasions. They would all be ideal for birthdays or christmas, the lingerie cupcakes for Hen nights and Valentine’s Day, and the babywear ones would be perfect for Christenings, or as presents for new mums.
All of Naughty Kitty’s cupcakes cost £5.95 each, plus postage and packaging. The online shop is still under construction, but if you would like to buy one then visit the Naughty Kitty blog, Facebook Page or Twitter account.
Aren’t they fab?
