Well February 14th is fast approaching so we thought we’d pinch this post for ourselves and dedicate it to some of the new sexy lingerie lines recently added to our sister site Moonrise at Midnight Lingerie, including some new plus size lingerie lines!

 

Shops windows always seem to fill up with blacks and reds when it comes to lingerie for Valentines Day, but we wanted to share some other colours that are just as romantic and seductive, of course we’ve thrown in some red & black for good measure!

Lingerie Advice for Men

Right fella’s there’s loads of pages across the internet on offering advice on how to choose lingerie for your girlfriend, fiancee or wife, but truth be known you’re the probably the best one at choosing underwear for your other half, (apart from her of course)! Just make sure you get the correct size and choose something similar to what she already wears and that’s pretty much it!

valentines_lingerie_babydoll_plus_size

Babydolls & chemises are pretty good for valentines day gifts as they are usually pretty easier to size up rather than a bra set, as bra sizing and fit can alter quite a bit from brand to brand! They’re great for wearing all year round as sleepwear as well!

Lingerie Advice for Women!

If you’re buying some sexy nightwear for yourself as a surprise for your special someone, then go for something that’s flattering, (quite obvious I know), but comfortable as well! There’s lots of corsets and bustiers advertised and on display in shops on stick thin mannequins, but if you’re not used to wearing these as lingerie then now’s not the time to go changing! Quality lingerie isn’t cheap, so opt for something that you can get plenty of uses out of, rather than black & red and plastered in hearts!

Plus_size_lingerie_valentines

sexy_nightdress_valentines

I’ve added this blue draped chemise as it’s one of my favourites, it’s quite different, very comfortable and is really flattering without being too revealing!

  

So visit our website Moonrise at Midnight and send a few hints to your other halves and spread the love on Valentine’s Day. (Use code FIRST33 for 10% discount as well)!

More and more brides are looking to make savings on their wedding day budget without compromising on their quality, and what a great place to make a saving.
petticoat

Bridal Petticoats
All of our bridal hoops are industry recognised Jupon petticoats and range from single layer to triple layer in both white or ivory. Prices start from just £23 and include cleaning. So take the stress out of dealing with your wedding hoop with our hassle free petticoat hire! Visit our website at ……… for full details and order yours today to avoid disappointment.

I would like to welcome to our blog Flash Floozy and gorgeous headwear. Flash Floozy is owned by the amazing Marie and when I asked her is she would like to write a post for us to put on our blog she was happy to, and we are so pleased to share with this post with you. If you have any questions for Marie then please find her details at the bottom of this post… enjoy! 
 
 
 
1) Can you tell me a bit about what you do?
 
I design and hand make boho and vintage inspired headwear. I make anything from over sized floral crowns and dainty rustic halos through to Gatsby inspired feathered headpieces and glitter headbands. I love old style glitz and glamour from the 1920s and 30s, they really knew how to dress back then. But I also like easy going comfortable, gypsy bohemian and modern convenience and I think this reflects in the kind of product I offer.

2) How did you get into this line of work?



It started as a hobby really. I have always made my own jewellery and when I bought my new sewing machine I started making lace and turban headbands. I suppose it got out of control from there! I’ve always worked in the Fashion Industry but I guess the turning point was losing my job earlier this year, it gave me the push and the time I needed to take my business to the next level. I’m not a natural designer, my background is more sourcing, production and quality so I’ve kind of come at it from a different angle but I feel that this only serves as an even better platform to offer an excellent quality product.

3) I have had a look at your website and you have some beautiful items, Where does your inspiration come from when designing them?

Thank you! Its a cliche but inspiration can literally come from anywhere. I love people watching! It can be something as small as a detail on someone’s jacket, their hairstyle or make up, a building or crumbling doorway. Wild flowers growing out of a wall on the side of the road could turn out to be the starting point for your next design. If I’m watching TV I’m barely following the storyline as I am too busy looking at what everyone is wearing, or checking out the wallpaper or a lamp in the background. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world in my previous career and I think, unknowingly I have gathered most of my inspiration from those travels, especially India and Pakistan where the colours and textures can inspire any project, but the biggest inspiration has got to be receiving amazing feedback from the bride when she tells you how perfect her headpiece was on her wedding day. That’s a real buzz.

I hold regular giveaways on my Facebook page and also I often put out promo codes on my Twitter  feed and Instagram.

Hi all,

My name is Jane and I am the owner of a small business called Those Little Bits. We are called Those Little Bits, because after you have sorted your photographer, chosen your cake and most importantly found THE dress, you may start turning your attention to all those other little bits. This is where we come in.  We have everything from miles of bunting, to decorated jam jars, teapots and teacups to great big white umbrellas (just in case of course) Royal Mail post boxes, vintage suitcases, memory boards, chalk board signs and lots more too. We love all things pretty and cant help adding to our stock all the time.

1496935_670265086358670_383995352_n-225x300

Those Little Bits came into existence when I came home one day with one to many teacups to add to my collection, and my husband swiftly made a polite but strong point that he was very much a man, and cant play poker with his friends amongst so many flowers. I understood his point and made the further point that he better find me a showroom so others can borrow and share in my china flowered joy, and quick too as the boys were due that weekend. Internal struggles between manly-ness and bank balances took place inside his head, I smiled sweetly and handed him a beer and thus the birth of Those Little Bits ensued.  Now I have a fully fledged business where I travel around Somerset and surrounding counties lending out beautiful items to some lovely brides with my Mum and business partner (or partner in convincing our husbands that our job isn’t nattering and drinking tea all day long). We have met some lovely people along the way, and are very excited for what is to come.

teacups-1200w-300x200

This summer has seen some new ventures for us, we have made a few more miles of bunting, decorated a few more venues and sadly broken two teapots, but there are highs and lows in every job I guess ;) So now as we have passed through the August bank holiday and it feels like Autumn is on the way, we hope that all you Autumnal brides are busy with your preparations, burnt oranges, creams and light browns can look stunning as those leaves start to turn and look gorgeous. If you ever need some finishing touches, or little additions just look us up, we are always happy to lend you anything you want, for a small fee of course.

Moonrise Lingeries’ ‘Other Half’ takes on 3 peak challenge for Cerebral Palsy.

 

It’s less than a week now before my husband & business partner Richard takes on the 3 peak challenge in order to help his cousins little girl, Imogen. Imogen is 4 years old & was born with Cerebral Palsy, as a result she is unable to walk without a k-walker to help her. There is an operation which costs £28,000 that her parents have set up a trustfund, Imogen’s Wish, to help raise the necessary funds. After the operation Imogen will need physiological care & help at approximately £4,000 a year.

 

 imogen

 

The 3 peak challenge involves climbing Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike & Snowdon in succession and the sting in the tail is to try & do this in 24 hours. Richard is planning to complete this on the 31st of August with my own Father Rob Lambert & an old school friend Paul Heathcote has kindly taken time off work to be their support team and driver for the course.

As it’s to raise as much money as we can to help Imogen we’re asking all of our friends & followers that we’ve met along our way since starting Moonrise Lingerie to dig deep & help. If you’d be kind enough to sponsor Richard & my Dad then e-mail me at enquiries@moonriselingerie.co.uk or call us on 01275 269054. Any help will be greatly appreciated, it all counts!

Boudoir Photography by Impulse Glamour

 

 

 

How and why did you begin in boudoir photography?

 

 

I used to shoot a lot of fashion and portraiture but more and more clients
were asking about boudoir style photos so it was a natural progression for
us and now it’s my passion and our main business.

 

 

What do you find most challenging as in this line of photography?

 

 

I often work from a blank canvas. I never know for sure what people want or
the looks and ideas they have until I meet them however although challenging
this is what makes the job exciting and rewarding for me.

 

 

boudoir59

 

 

What would be your best piece of advice to the bride thinking of having a
Bridal Boudoir photoshoot?

 

 

During our consultation I always advise clients that they only work to a
level they are completely comfortable with and I offer full direction
throughout the shoot usually involving me demonstrating the poses which adds
a bit of humour to things!

 

 

You can never bring too much to a photoshoot – the more choice the better
and often it’s a good idea to bring along a parners favourite shirt or
sports shirt along with your bridal boudoir lingerie, jewellery and accessories.

 

 

The most important advice – just be yourself and have fun with it as it
helps me to bring you out and capture your personality.

 

 

image3

 

 

Who’s work has influenced you most?

 

 

That’s a difficult one. I admire many photographers, artists and film makers
all of which have helped me to develop my own style of photography using
light, shade, make-up, outfits and props to compliment individual subjects.
