Celine – We’re planning a little city break to Barcelona. My plan is to enjoy great food, good wine, see the sights and visit the beach.
I plan to take the Maria Bonita Tuerts bikini with me as the colours are so gorgeous and bright, a perfect match for the vibrancy of Barcelona’s city beach. The Maria Bonita Aradia white mini dress is also a must as it packs up small enough for my carry on luggage and I can wear it on the breach or strolling around the hot Barcelona streets. I’ve chosen the Lise Charmel Effusion Bleue Blue Half Cup Bra and Italian brief because it’s totally beautiful and just a bit special so I know I’ll feel lovely in the evenings.
Sophia – I’m getting married in 6 weeks time so I plan to take a break from all the stress of planning and spend some quality time with my other half at pre wedding spa weekend.
I always like to wear a swimsuit when I’m in a spa so I bought the Lepel Capri red v-neck because it’s flattering and also sexy enough that I can take it on honeymoon later next month. I’m also taking the Gossard Superboost black lace slip which I chose because its elegant and sexy but not too pricey and I’m saving my pennies for the Lise Charmel Romantique Desir low back nightdress which I’m buying for the honeymoon.
Charis – I’m spending the weekend with a group of friends at one of their houses. There will be lots of chatting, wine drinking and of course a night out at our favourite cocktail bars.
It’s basically going to be one extreme or the other this weekend. I’m either going to be in my PJs with a glass of wine nattering with the girls at home or out at a bar and properly dressed up. I’m taking my favourite Mio Lounge Ocean Breeze PJs with me because they’re comfy and perfect for a day spent doing nothing. In the evening I’m wearing a short, tight sexy little number which requires some clever underwear to go with it to maximise the effect of the dress. The Spanx Lust Have nude high waist half slip is perfect, totally smooths out my waist and hips and I can wear a pretty bra with it so I still feel sexy.
Christy – I’m currently 7.5 months pregnant so I will be spending a relaxing weekend at home avoiding doing anything and enjoying the peace and quiet while it lasts.
My top picks for my relaxing bank holiday weekend are the Irall Cappuccino Pyjamas because they are really pretty and the stretch fabric accommodates my ever growing bump and is really comfy. I’ve also bought two of the Lorna Drew nursing bras in preparation for the baby coming. You aren’t supposed to wear wires at this late stage in pregnancy and I find, unlike the majority of maternity lingerie, that Lorna Drew lingerie is both practical for every day and also still offers some actually sexy styles when you want to feel a little less like you’re smuggling a bowling ball and a little more like an attractive woman.
