A Love Affair with Mimi Holliday..

30 September 2013

Mimi Holliday 'Dotty Nuit' via Odyssey Boutique

Ever since I used to peruse those designer discount sites at the age of 16, I've marvelled at the intricate detailing & handiwork of lingerie designers everywhere.. but, if one brand stood out for me amongst the tide of balconette, plunge & super-padded, it was the beautiful & loveable Mimi Holliday. If you're a long-time reader of The Likely Lady, you'll perhaps have seen my adoration for them dotted amongst the pages of this blog. But never given their own wee post..

So, here we go, let the love affair commence.. (and maybe shield your eyes if you're a bit shy of discussing your undergarments on the internet)

Raspberry Beret, The Kind You Find In A Second-Hand Store..

27 September 2013

Hey, you beautiful lot!

I've gone to the bright side.. raspberry pink, to be precise! Feeling a bit fancy-free & footloose in my final year at University - where I can actually still experiment before the world of work welcomes me in with its steely arms.. Whaddya reckon..?

The Pout Event 2013

26 September 2013


So, last Saturday, myself, Lynsey & Jade trotted along to the Edinburgh Corn Exchange for the Pout Event 2013. Last year, I'd been keen to go but it just seemed to fall out of my memory! This year, however, after seeing how well the event did last year from their exhibitors brochure, I was keen to get involved. So thankfully we were invited by the lovely Suzanne at Hummingbird Communications & Amanda at Pout to see what it's all about!

And, boy, did we enjoy ourselves..

An Afternoon of Beauty & Lingerie at Odyssey Boutique..

17 September 2013

When I was invited by Suzanne at Hummingbird Communications to review Odyssey Boutique on William Street, Edinburgh, before their stint at the Pout Event this weekend, I was pretty excited.. Having heard about the boutique on Facebook a few times, it sounded like an interesting place! Not just your average lingerie boutique, Odyssey have high-quality branded beauty treatments available, including the inimitable Shellac manicure (of course).

Er.. hello!? A beauty treatment and some new undies in your lunch hour..? I was sold!

Appointedd Launch at the Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh

4 September 2013

Appointedd's shiny new Business Cards! And polka dot tablecloth.. I, of course, approve ;)
I've been a busy bee this summer.. what with my full-time placement and going to lots of blogging and industry events, I've barely been able to find the time or inclination to post a blog post of my very own - usually more likely on behalf of a business! Which is great for the ol' CV, but not so good for keeping in touch with the blogging community *sadface*..

But, here I am.. covering Monday August 12th's event (eek!). Forgive me, guys, for I have sinned..!

Revlon by Marchesa Nail Appliqué: The Run-Down

3 September 2013

Revlon by Marchesa Nail Appliqué

Hold the phone! Marchesa have launched a brand new nail range with Revlon and it is looking super-glamorous!

I first clocked on to the launch a couple of weeks ago (late on the bandwagon, it seems, judging by fashion articles from May/June, noted after a wide-eyed Google search). It has really excited me. Of late, I've been a little so-so about nail art launches.. "Barry M have launched another textured nail polish", you say? Pointy nails covered in rhinestones and plastic stuff? Passé. No no no.

However, Marchesa being my favourite of all the dreamy princess-like dress designers, I wasn't going to let this little launch pass me by...
