Eleanor Rigby

As change continues to plague my life, I've been forced to take a look back into the past. I pick up the antique mirror that sits on my vanity, greened with oxidation and tarnished with age, and peer through the fogged glass. I can just see her, only just: a girl that I had once likened to Eleanor Rigby.

She would always wander alone, be it through the town's empty cemetery on the hill or the long desolate roads of the rural highways; the solitary sound of her heels clicking with each step she took her only company. Often she'd carry a hand drawn map in her hand. She'd clutch it tightly as she ventured far away to new places she'd never been to as if it were some token to guarantee her safety or perhaps more so some chance ticket to a place where the grass would be greener and the sun would shine brighter. In days like these I wish that I had a map of these sorts to lead me through the unknown. But I don't. And so, instead of blindly pursuing a hidden path in the dark I look back to the days of Eleanor Rigby and retrace her steps - hoping again that I may find the greener grass and the brighter sun that I wished for so many years ago.

J'adore Adore Me Lingerie

When I was younger lingerie was something that I admittedly had mixed feelings about. I loved  the feminine designs, prints and fabrics but I felt that it was something reserved for a specific coterie of people with model worthy measurements and vibrant relationships. Now that I've grown older and have become more comfortable in my own skin I've come to understand how good lingerie can be for body confidence. 

I believe that wearing lingerie should first and foremost be for yourself. When choosing out a set and putting it on you are provided with an opportunity to embrace your femininity and love your body for exactly how it is. It's okay to feel confident about yourself when looking in the mirror and it's okay to wear something that makes you feel fabulous underneath your clothing, whether anyone else see it or not! We all deserve self love. 

Adore Me Lingerie is a New York lingerie brand that believes that lingerie shouldn't be reserved for special occasions. It should be something to boost women's confidence in their everyday lives and make them feel feminine, fabulous and comfortable. They aim to produce great fitting designs that are not only quality but also affordable for the average woman. They produce their sets quite flexibly in sizes that range from 32A to 42G and they have a large series of styles to choose from to suit your individual preference. 

For most of my lovely lady readers Spring time is at last on the way. Adore Me have just released their new Spring 2015 collection and goodness I really think it is just lovely. The collection is filled with lovely and lacey pastel sets with ornate embroidery and pretty detailing such as satin finishes and lace scalloped edging. I adore the bright colours and romantic designs. It's not often you see happy daisy yellow or mint green lingerie!

I was also surprised by the below grey set. Usually I'm not at all drawn to grey hued lingerie but this particular set is so pretty with the lace detailing and subtle baby blue accents. I also love the balconette style. 

This set is perhaps my favourite of the new collection. It has a very romantic and feminine style and the colours remind me of something you may see on the dress of a pretty little china doll. Very dainty and very delicate. 

Adore Me Lingerie also stock swimwear and sleepwear in a variety of styles.
Do check out their website if your wish, you may find something you like. 
If not, I hope that you at least enjoyed the pretty spring time pictures - I certainly did!
