Introducing: Figleaves Curve At Just Be

I sometimes really feel that the lingerie globe does some effectively in some respects, and fails slightly in other folks. I often get ladies writing to me asking aboout pretty bras with larger backs and smaller cups, and I can only ever offer a handful or recommendations.

Enter: Figleaves Curve at Simply Be!

The variety is obtainable from a 38-48 back, B – G cups and size 12-30 briefs. It consists of a mixture of bodies, babydolls, slips, bras and knickers, and there are beautiful patterns and cuts aplenty. It strikes the perfect balance among attractive and functional without having being seeking frumpy and clearly plus size.

I was not too long ago sent some pieces from ‘The Wave’ collection to try. I had to sister size as I sadly do not very match the cup range, and so these images are far more to show how the pieces look on a larger physique, rather than how they match.

I’m wearing my Catherine D’Lish robe, now sold out Dita Von Teese robe and The Massive Tights Business hold ups in these photographs.

The knickers are a size 22, and they are remarkable! I enjoy a high brief, and these are comfy and fairly. As I described, the bras are not the greatest match on me personally, but they will be ideal for boudoir style shoots. The bands come up a little firm – rather like Curvy Kate. I can not comment on the cups provided the sister sizing, but I did uncover them super supportive. The multiway bra gave me some fantastic cleavage, and the straps seemed super safe – occasionally they can slide out really effortlessly in multiway styles. I feel that the price points are reflective of the good quality and the engineering that has gone into these products.

I really like Figleaves Curve’s initial foray into plus size. I can’t wait to see the subsequent designs, and I actually hope they expand their sizes. Ideally with bigger cups, but far more importantly I would like to see smaller cups. Starting at a B is fantastic – but bigger ladies with smaller sized busts have really few options. Also, offered that the briefs start at a 12, it would be good to see smaller back. Size 12 females are unlikely to want a 38 backed bra, and there are 10 brief sizes Vs six band sizes. BUT, this is just the beginning, and who knows what will occur next! I for 1 am impressed thus far!

What do you think of the Figleaves Curve range at Basically Be? Let me know in the comments!

Introducing: Joanie Clothing

Unless you are a new reader (hello, and welcome!) you will know that I adore enjoy Enjoy vintage style clothes. And so when new brand Joanie Clothes contacted me supplying me some dresses to assessment, I practically bit their hands off! The brand presently tends to make clothes in sizes 8-26 with no division (ie no wiggle or fun dresses for plus sizes), they use absolute BABE Em from Terrible Tumbles as a model and their pictures are just so fun and full of life!

I have to say, I identified it genuinely challenging to whittle my wish list down to two dresses, but I eventually settled on the Odette Cocktail Print Dress and the Starr Cross Front Tulle Dress. The beautiful Christine from the brand suggested that with my measurements I need to try a 22 in both, as they are stretch free of charge styles. The dresses arrived a couple of days later, and a 22 had certainly been the excellent recommendation. A 20 could have worked, but provided that the waists weren’t drowning me and there wasn’t a lot breathing room left at the bust in each, I was satisfied with the 22s. I also had a beautiful surprise in the parcel – an Olivia shrug that would go perfectly with each dresses.

dsc_0098dsc_0090dsc_0075

I was so impressed by the Starr Cross Front Tulle Dress. It was reduce so perfectly more than the bust, the tiny bow detail sat in the exact right location and wasn’t too full on or fussy. The spot mesh just completed the girlie frock off completely, and as you will see in the pictures of me from behind, I am wearing a typical strapped bra that does not really show a lot at all from the front – so it’s up to you what you want to wear with it undercracker wise.

dsc_0096dsc_0080dsc_0076

I really liked the shrug, and I consider when I wear it again I may well add a little brooch to the front of it to close it and really help bring it in at my waist. It is totally lined and doesn’t scratch or dig in whatsoever. I have worn sequin things just before, and in addition to finding wayward sequins in the bag when it arrives, you will often discover that the sequins flake off within minutes. But I am happy to report that these sequins on the Olivia shrug really feel super safe and we had no shedders at all!

dsc_0095dsc_0078dsc_0106

Who does not love a cocktail?! And so who wouldn’t adore the Odette Cocktail Print Dress!!

dsc_0059dsc_0023dsc_0058

I wore this dress out on Friday and I got so several compliments! Half of my night was spent in a rock club exactly where I stood out like a sore thumb in my vintage outfit, but every person was so sweet and complimentary! And these pictures were taken the following day – the completely lined dress holds up nicely soon after a night of rocking out to Finch and MCR!

dsc_0014dsc_0048dsc_0007

I teamed this with a no longer obtainable faux fur scarf – but Joanie do sell an Antonia Faux Fur Stole if you want to recreate this look. As you know I do love a belt! And so this gold metal belt was the ideal easy accessory. As the dress is high necked, I am all about balancing that out with a cinched silhouette, and the thickness of the fabric actually only leant itself to a thinish belt.

dsc_0054dsc_0047dsc_0022

I actually adore the shine of the dress! It just tends to make it appear so luxurious and sophisticated. The print is quite cute, but not overly kitsch and in your face – due to the fact as much as I adore that, sometimes I also really like understated items.

What do you issue of beautiful new brand Joanie Clothes? Are they a brand you have tried or would like to attempt? Which item is your favourite? I’d love to know!

Introducing: Curvy Swan

I was not too long ago browsing the ‘Explore’ tab on Instagram and I came across a super beautiful brand named Curvy Swan.
The owner Adel seemed super passionate about her line, and the bright prints and truth that all the products seemed to have pockets really appealed to me! I placed an order for two beautiful skirts, and shortly afterwards Adel emailed me to ask for my waist size. Just a couple of days later, my pretties arrived!

DSC_0146DSC_0149DSC_0224

The fabric was beautiful – as vibrant as it had been on the images and it felt like wonderful top quality stuff. The waist bands have been beautiful and firm, aaaaaaaaaaaand POCKETSSSSSSSSSS!

DSC_0229DSC_0152DSC_0150

I am 5’7 and the fit was really beautiful on me – even though a single factor I will say is that you need to add a couple of inches to your waist measurement if you go in and out fairly substantially like me. The thick waist band is longer than the nipped in element of my waist, and so getting the skirt buttoned up was touch and go! So bear that in mind.

DSC_0230DSC_0153DSC_0231DSC_0156

I paired these skirts with some older Forever21+ tops, but thanks to the colourfulness of them you could pair them with a variety of top and shirts. They would operate so well as office wear and could be easily dressed up or down. I would adore to wear the maxi dress with a bikini prime on the beach as it actually has that beachy vibe.

DSC_0233DSC_0234DSC_0159DSC_0158DSC_0157DSC_0240

I styled myself in a vintagey way and added my trust Rosie Red Corset for these photographs, but I believe they would operate perfectly with every appear. I really cannot wait to try much more products out!

Thank you to my lovely patient husband Robbie for being my great blogtographer – and Satisfied 1st Wedding Anniversary!

Introducing: Lilly & Lime Swimwear

Obtaining out that bra sized swimwear existed a handful of years ago was a comprehensive revelation for me. Obtaining out that it existed in gorgeous prints, patterns and designs was even better. As Ash and Emma, creators of Lilly &amp Lime Swimwear have stated, “We dread the starting of Summer as we Adore purchasing for new bikinis but can by no means find anything that’s both trendy and a great match in our sizes. Our smaller busted friends appear to have a significantly broader selection of swimwear, all in gorgeous prints and designs.” The massive busted pals decided to do some thing about this – and thus their brand was born! “Our label is here to bring fashion, style, options and a tension-cost-free purchasing experience to massive-busted ladies like us. We have lovingly worked on every single style and print, they seem far more like our babies than bikinis. The bikinis have been cautiously developed to supply help and shape for d-cup and up and we hope you love them as significantly as we do.”

I really like brands that are produced by men and women with a genuine passion for the market place that they are targeting and an understanding of why that solution is required. The girls have dreamt up some fabulous designs in numerous distinct designs, and for a new brand they have carried out so properly to cater to so many. They at present stock sizes 28-38 D-HH, and bottoms in sizes 8-18. They have halternecks, strapless, balconette and complete cup bikini tops and full briefs, basic briefs and tie side briefs. You can mix and match patterns and styles and truly just produce your excellent bikini! I think that was what impressed me most when the girls contacted me and supplied to send me some pieces to attempt out.

lal

I’m wearing the stripe balconette with detachable straps and nectarine side tie briefs, and the lime halterneck leading with full briefs.

DSC_0012DSC_0140DSC_0016DSC_0103

I have both sets in a 36HH/18, and even though each bottoms match nicely, the perfect size for me would be a 20 or perhaps even 22. They are each styles that I never typically put on, but I was pleasantly surprised by how a lot I likes them. Tie side briefs are constantly a winner as you can make them match you perfectly – I just have a lot of bottom to cover! And the higher briefs can be rolled folded down or left as is, which is ideal for those who want to show a tiny more tummy or bare a tiny far more to the sun.

DSC_0053DSC_0062

The tops were bang on for me. My size is all more than the spot appropriate now, and anything from 34HH to 36J is fitting, and so I would say these are firmer in the back and spot on cup wise.

DSC_0018DSC_0111

The halterneck bra comes with removable pads, which I chose to add in as I am a nipply nippler. They are easy to pop in and it is good to have the selection. Provided the weight of my bust, halternecks are normally not my preferred style, and so I would possibly put on this on a day when I was largely horizontal or in water! I really like halternecks since it is straightforward to slip them off to cease tan marks, and it gives you a fantastic tiny cleavage!
As described, the balconette style has removable straps. I didn’t brave it as my boobs are saggy and heavy and they want industrial strength components to preserve them off ground, but I have observed the style on a couple of models and buyers and it appears beautiful!

DSC_0044DSC_0063

Aesthetically and structurally, they are each fantastic! I adore the nautical mix’n’match of the blue and nectarine set, and the way the lime set tends to make my tan pop. This brand is just super exciting! The girls are open to feedback and this is just the beginning for them and that bodes super nicely. But what do you consider? Do you like the styles? The range? The mix’n’match potential? Let me know! And verify out the rest of the Lilly &amp Lime collection right here.

The cover ups featured in this had been just to show how I may well style these on a beach and I’m afraid they are each from ASOS and presently sold out.

Introducing Amathia, My New Lingerie Collection

Author: Estelle

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve just finished my newest in-home collection for Esty Lingerie, Amathia, which launched on Sunday. I intentionally almost never ever talk about my own styles on this weblog (due to the fact who wants to hear me rave about items I’ve made myself?) but I’m rather content with this new collection and wanted to show it off, so I hope you will forgive me this a single indulgence. :)

Apologies in advance if this post is a bit far more of a ramble than usual. I just believed I’d talk a little about my inspiration and design procedure for anybody who’s interested.

Esty Lingerie Nymph collection low res

You may well recognise this lace from my prior collection, Glimmer – it’s the same except for the colour. I have a enjoy-hate relationship with it because its greatest feature is its sparkliness, but I can by no means seem to get that glorious shimmer to show up in photographs (which are somewhat essential when you sell exclusively online!). Mostly though, I really like it – it is beautiful, it’s straightforward to function with, and it is not crazy pricey meaning I can preserve my prices fairly affordable, which has constantly been essential to me.

I pretty a lot constantly get my inspiration for a collection from its components, so that was my starting point. Initially, I’d hoped to use the lace in a gorgeous white and mint, which I employed to make this one-off pair of tap pants, but sadly there wasn’t enough available so white and lime it was.

Nymph white lace tap pants low res

Amathia tap pants, £34.99

With the lace’s shimmering metallic thread and scalloped edging, I was reminded of irridescent osyters and clamshells and a theme began to take shape. I managed to locate some awesome small pearl-in-shell charms, plus gold starfish to match with the gold-plated hardware utilized on the strapping.

Amathia thong, £32.99

Amathia thong, £32.99

The strapping, like the lime-accented lace, was an additional unplanned colour choice. I debated between white and green elastic and at some point decided the green would appear very best, despite getting pricier – if you want a little reel of satin elastic in any colour other than black or white the price jumps by about 500%! However it was dyed-to-order and arrived significantly brighter than anticipated, but as it came from the States returning it was a cost and a lengthy wait I didn’t require, so I just decided to run with it. After all, I’m constantly complaining there is not adequate green lingerie out there!

Amathia harness, £19.99

Amathia harness, £19.99

In terms of styles, you’ll recognise the triple-strapped garter from prior collections. Like my triple choker straps, it is turn out to be a bit of a signature style and one thing that often sells nicely for me. The Amathia tap pants are also extremely comparable to the preceding Glimmer ones, but as nicely as adding slit sides (inspired by my beautiful Ann Summers Clarissa shorts) I’ve produced some considerable modifications to the pattern to improve the match.

Amathia garter, £17.99

Amathia garter, £17.99

For these who don’t know, I do not come from a sewing or fashion background. When I launched Esty Lingerie in 2009, I didn’t even have a sewing machine! Early on I outsourced most of the production of my concepts to freelance seamstresses in the UK, but more than the years I’ve taken it on bit by bit, very first adding some finishing touches by hand, then generating a few of the easier pieces myself, and as of my Beloved and Glimmer collections (not Pivoine in between) doing almost everything myself.

Amathia cupless bodysuit, £39.99

Amathia cupless bodysuit, £39.99

Partly this shift has been because I haven’t always been happy with the good quality of the work I’ve outsourced. Partly it is a cost factor, since the much more I can do myself the reduce my retail rates and/or the more profit I make per piece. Largely even though, it’s due to the fact I’d found I actually, genuinely appreciate sewing!

Amathia marks the 1st collection where I’ve incorporated a bra I’ve created myself. Yes, it’s a bralette, but studying to sew a wired bra is certainly on my to-do list – most likely subsequent year even though, these pesky small items are up there with corsets and shoes as some of the most complicated and difficult garments to generate!

Amathia bralette, £42.99

Amathia bralette, £42.99

This is also the explanation the size variety for the Amathia bralette is really limited, with 3 sizes fitting 30-40 band sizes and a really narrow spread of cup sizes. Grading patterns and sewing are two different talent sets, and I have significantly less knowledge with the initial, but introducing numbered sizing rather than S/M/L is my purpose for my next collection.

So, just a single last issue – why Amathia? As a sealife-inspired collection my thoughts initially turned to mermaids, or sirenas in Spanish. I stock the Kiss Me Deadly Sirena range and the Dentelle etc… Siren variety even though, and didn’t want to trigger any confusion. So I began looking via the names of nereids – sea nymphs in Greek mythology – and just rather liked the name of the small-recognized Amatheia, a nereid with “lovely hair” who raised all the young fish of the sea!

You can shop the Amathia variety right here, with prices ranging from £17.99 to £42.99. I’d really like to know what you believe of it, and what you’d like to see more of from me in the future!

Introducing Lovehoney: Attractive, Spending budget-Friendly Lingerie

Author: Estelle

Disclosure: This weblog post is sponsored by Lovehoney.

If you reside in the UK, possibilities are you’ve heard of Lovehoney. Taglined “the sexual happiness people”, this is the spot to go online for a huge range of sexy lingerie from the likes of Leg Avenue, Oh La La Cheri and Seven ’til Midnight. What you may possibly now know nevertheless is that Lovehoney also has their personal, in-house lingerie variety which was unveiled at the end of 2014.

It’s a sizeable collection, with just more than 150 distinct pieces presently offered on the website, and many things offered in plus sizes up to a UK 24. It is also wonderful to see that a lot of the designs that come in plus-sizes are really photographed on plus-sized as properly as core-sized models – admittedly something a lot of brands in this niche are excellent at, but admirable nonetheless!

Lovehoney not too long ago loaned me a handful of lingerie and nightwear pieces so that I could photograph them and give you a close-up appear at the collection. I’d initially asked to be sent the eyelash lace-trimmed Enchant Me range which is just beautiful, but unfortunately it’s been discontinued – the final handful of pieces are on sale from £3 and I definitely believe they’re worth checking out, so be certain to view this basque, bra and knickers also.

In spite of the huge selection of products in Lovehoney’s own lingerie collection, the colours are focussed about a narrow colour palette of black, red and purple – classic lingerie colours that most men and women will list amongst their favourites. As for materials, there’s lace – a lot of lace – alongside satin, mesh, net and wet-appear fabric. Virtually every single piece is finished off with a tiny silver Lovehoney charm.

Lovehoney Flaunt Me black cupless lace bodysuit

My favourite piece from what I saw was this Flaunt Me cupless, crotchless lace bodysuit – also available in red and plus sizes. Cheap lace has a tendency to appear inexpensive, but not this a single. I believed it was genuinely fairly, specifically with the tiny ruching detail at the back and the detachable suspender straps. At £22.99, it’s great worth for cash too!

Lovehoney Flaunt Me lace bodysuit

Lovehoney Flaunt Me cupless lace bodysuit with suspenders

The robe pictured above and below (available in A single Size and Queen Size) is also from the Flaunt Me collection, but made from a diverse black lace (not really so beautiful, but completely acceptable for the cost point). With its thigh-grazing length, sheer floral pattern, and scalloped edging, it is a lovely little boudoir cover-up that won’t break the bank. The standard price is £19.99, believed the A single Size version is currently on sale for half that if you’re fast!

Lovehoney Spoil Me red satin chemise

Lovehoney Spoil Me red satin slip

Lovehoney Spoil Me satin chemise

No sexy, boudoir-inspired lingerie collection would be total without a slinky small satin chemise, and this Spoil Me babydoll was my other favourite piece and probably the one I could most envision wearing myself. Like cheap lace, low-cost satin can appear awful – it can look more plastic-shine than glossy-sheen, or really feel stiff and crinkly like tissue paper – but the satin on the Spoil Me babydoll was surprisingly thick and soft.

The design is cute too with its split sides and racer-back style. The Spoil Me babydoll costs £24.99 and comes with a matching thong, and is available in red, black, purple or child pink, all in typical and plus sizes.

Lovehoney Flaunt Me red lace basque

Lovehoney Flaunt Me lace red basque

Coming back to the Flaunt Me collection, there’s also a lace basque – offered in black too – which is produced from the very same, pretty lace as the cupless bodysuit. The lacy straps atop the lightly-padded cups give just a nod to the well-known strappy trend on what is otherwise a very simple, classic-seeking basque. I consider it appears a small much more expensive in the black colourway, but either way at £29.99 including a matching thong it’s one more cost-effective indulgence.

Lovehoney bras

Lovehoney strappy back bras

Ultimately, the bras. Pictured right here are the Spoil Me (left) and Adore Me (proper) bras, each available up to a UK 22-24 and with matching bottoms. The Spoil Me is a really of-the-moment design, with a strappy, racer-style back, while Adore Me is a half-cup bra overlaid with black lace and with a ribbon halter fastening. Both of these bras are front-fastening, and expense £16.99 every.

So, all round thoughts on Lovehoney’s in-property lingerie variety? Whilst this is not a spot you’ll locate luxury fabrics or finishes, that’s okay – lingerie does not always have to be about luxury. What Lovehoney does supply is attractive, pretty underthings that come in a wide range of sizes and are very inexpensive, so you can treat yourself guilt-free of charge each now and then.

Costs range from £36.99 at the top end, down to just £5.99 – or £1.50 if you count the existing sale prices! So if you are seeking for cheap, flirty lingerie that won’t fall apart after the first put on, do verify the complete range out.

What do you consider of Lovehoney’s foray into lingerie design? Is there something right here that you’d purchase or wear?

Introducing: XL Promodoro

I typically get a lot of comments asking me exactly where I get my exercise put on from and where other plus size ladies can locate larger exercise clothing.

Enter…XL Promodoro! The brand injecting a bit of colour into your exercise wardrobe! They cater for plus size women and guys and their models are genuinely fabulous and represent their target market place perfectly!

I tried 3 diverse designs from them, all XL – a tank top, a round neck t shirt and a V neck t shirt. I typically have an issue with sportswear in that it is frequently too quick for me. I have a big bust, a long torso and a lot of fupa in my (often Karrimor) health club leggings, and I generally do a less self conscious workout when I’ve got it all covered up!

DSC_0001 DSC_0005 DSC_0018 DSC_0014 DSC_0019 DSC_0011

This hot pink tank best is best for a fitness center goer who is pleased to go bright and bear arms! It’s a great length on me, it does not cling to each and every single roll and it is not as well low cut. Plus, it’s best with my ‘on Wednesday we wear pink’ Karrimor leggings!

DSC_0031 DSC_0059 DSC_0058 DSC_0055 DSC_0042 DSC_0033 DSC_0032

If you’re right after one thing a little much more covered up then this red v-neck t shirt is excellent. I discover that a reduce necked t shirt is, dare I say, more flattering on a larger bust. The colour is one more fabulous vibrant shade and my only gripe would be that it shows up sweat – but then. who doesn’t sweat in the health club?!

DSC_0064 DSC_0066 DSC_0067 DSC_0106 DSC_0113 DSC_0116 DSC_0121

If you fancy anything a tiny darker and a lot more covered up then this navy blue t shirt might be far more your bag! I have to confess that I did locate it to be a quite warm garment – my spin class was a extremely sweaty affair! But the length and match have been bang on and as soon as once again it looked excellent with my Karrimor leggings.

These tops are inexpensive, cheerful, they wash effectively (with out running) and do not necessarily need to have ironing. Best! XL Promodoro.

Introducing: Dorothy Perkins Curve

It is so thrilling to see brands increasing their size ranges or adding on plus size lines. And the newest plus size range to hit the industry is Dorothy Perkins Curve.
The brand have been drip feeding size 18-28 pieces onto the internet site for the last week or so, and they have a lot more pieces to come. I was fortunate enough to be provided a few pieces to attempt – some of which are yet to turn out to be accessible.
I have developed 4 looks out of five pieces from the range. The trousers and the jacket are a 20 and the rest are 18s.

16 21 20 19 18 17

This is a more casual appear – excellent for taking the little ones to college or popping to the cinema in the evening. The stretchy dress fits accurate to size and is rather brief on 5’7 me, hence why I would pair it with tights.
The jacket is super comfy – a small massive on me with this appear, but I sized up to permit for layers. It lovely and soft and does not look as well inexpensive or fake.

6 10 9 8 7

This would serve for a a lot more casual office appear. The functional zip detail on the skirt adds a small something added, and the risque front slit makes it versatile.
I found the shirt a fantastic fit across the bust – but I will probably stitch the buttons up on the inside just to add a tiny peace of mind.

11 15 14 13 12

For an workplace to party or just a generally glammed up appear I would pair the shirt with the pleather trousers. With the workplace appear I would tuck the shirt in and unbutton it slightly, but by buttoning it all the way up and leaving it untucked, it gives it an edgier evening look.
I usually size up a size or two in trousers since my huge bum requires up so considerably area. Nonetheless, I needn’t have bothered in these, and I feel an 18 would have worked genuinely effectively – a 16 (if it existed) would have been a tiny also tight.

1 5 4 3 2

If you’re soon after a super glam look then the lurex dress of dreams is for you. Dipped hem, sexy slit, ruched waist band, plunging neckline…. this dress has it all. It’s a real head turner. It fits really well in an 18, but my only gripe is the amount of fabric about the waist. I discovered it added quite a lot of bulk. I would possibly add a belt to it just so it suited me a bit a lot more.

What are your thoughts on the Dorothy Perkins Curve variety? Are you excited to see what has currently hit the website and what’s to come? Personally I like the selection of the pieces, but I just hope that the size variety increases one day.

Introducing My Weblog Awards & a Likelihood to Win a £50 Voucher

Author: Estelle

If you follow me on Twitter you may possibly currently have noticed this when it went live yesterday, but say hello to the 1st ever Esty Lingerie weblog awards!

I do have two ‘blog awards’ posts from prior years (right here and right here) but they have been generally just lists of blogs that I enjoyed reading at the time. I began thinking about 2015’s list and realised it was going to be utterly impossible for me to narrow it down to just 1 blogger per category – I’ve found so several amazing new blogs this year that I now study routinely – so I thought that for a alter and a bit of exciting, I’d let you guys do that element for me this time round!

Also, I do feel like lingerie bloggers get quick shrift as far as blog awards usually go. The UK Weblog Awards have fourteen different categories below Style &amp Beauty but still not a Lingerie one, and generic fashion weblog awards hardly ever if ever include lingerie bloggers.

So take into account this an awards especially for all the amazing lingerie bloggers who are either intentionally or unintentionally excluded from the rest of them!

(There has been a lingerie weblog awards prior to, after, but the brand that ran it has because removed all information about the awards from its web site. I do not know who was nominated or who won.)

And of course, being an ‘official’ awards this year, there had to be prizes! So the winning bloggers in the Luxury, Tiny Busts, DD Plus and Testimonials categories will all be eligible for a £50 Christmas shopping spree at Esty Lingerie if they want it, and the winner of Very best All round Lingerie Blog a £75 one particular.

It would also be beautiful to have far more men and women voting than just the nominees’ buddies and loved ones. I’d love to get as many of my blog readers, social media fans and newsletter subscribers involved as possible, so there’s a small incentive for you also – as effectively as giving your favourite blogger a opportunity to win a prize, you will also be entered into a £50 gift voucher prize draw as a thank you.

1 final note before I sign off – a couple of men and women have emailed in to ask how the nominees had been chosen. It was a combination of factors ranging from image quality to weblog style to how often the weblog is updated (and certainly, written content material), and I excluded retailer blogs. There are a lot more blogs that aren’t nominated that I do like and read frequently.

Now, over to you! Head here to see all 30 nominees and cast your vote(s), and remember to get your votes in ahead of the 14th of December deadline.

There’s an FAQ on that web page, but if you have any other questions just comment beneath and I’ll get back to you!
