Wishlist Wednesday: Cozy Robes

Seriously, I cannot stand being cold. Cannot. Stand. It.  Unfortunately, I live in Pennsylvania, and about five minutes away from Lake Erie, at that. What that means is that it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll be cold for the next four to six months.

This is why my sinuses are always angry.

This is why my sinuses are always angry.

One of the ways that I cope with this miserable weather is by spending a lot of my at-home time wrapped up in a cozy robe. Well, that and copious amounts of hot coffee. My current robes (yes, plural) are getting a little threadbare so I’ve been doing some Internet browsing. I present you with four snuggle-up-in-able robes that I’ve found.

Just Peachy Lace Non Padded Balconette Part 2: 32F

This is the second size of this bra that I’m reviewing. Even though neither size is a great fit, I want to use these reviews to show sister sizing in action.


That color is not accurate...flash problems...

Before I took the pictures for this review I would have told you this bra is a much better fit than the 34E that I reviewed last month. Theoretically, a 34E and a 32F should have the same cup volume. The 32F feels like exactly the same fit, but with a tighter band. Turns out, that’s not true.

Wishlist Wednesday: Wiesmann Lingerie

Last month there was a review on Venusian Glow for a bra from a company that I hadn’t heard of before. This is the bra:

How beautiful is that? It’s the Tiffany balconette from Wiesmann Lingerie. Turns out that Wiesmann is a smaller Polish lingerie company, and even Eternal*Voyager from Venusian Glow hadn’t heard of them. And she’s been blogging about bras way longer than I have. Her review is favorable, so I decided to see what else Wiesmann has to offer. Continue reading


Something Else Sunday: Help Me!

So, it has recently come to my attention that December is one of the months that my husband doesn’t get a commission check at work. Which means that my whole holiday shopping game plan has gone down the tubes, and I’m having a bit of a panic about it. This is the part where I need help, you guys! I have a lot of loved ones that need gifts, and not much money to do it with. I don’t want this


to be everyone’s gift.

Don’t worry, I’m not asking you to fund my Christmas shopping*; I just need some ideas. I’ve been practically living on Pinterest**, trying to hunt down some inexpensive DIY gift ideas. There’s an awful lot of cookie-in-a-jar stuff to weed through. Which, you know, that’s fine and everything, but I’m looking to kind of level up from that. Here’s a few that I’ve found so far.

Wishlist Wednesday: Babydolls


image from macys.com

I love babydolls. So pretty, so sexy, theoretically so much more supportive for the bust than chemises.  Yeah, I said theoretically.  I’m pretty sure I’ve never owned a babydoll that actually fit well. Usually the problem is that once I find a size that fits in the cups, the fabric that should be supporting my breasts (where a band would be on a bra) is way too loose. And that means that my boobs slide down underneath the designated boob area. Not cute. At all.

Parfait by Affinitas Charlotte Review


32F padded bra, XL high waisted briefs

Woohoo! A set that fits! I must admit that I’m still in the honeymoon phase with Parfait’s Charlotte. It’s so beautiful, it’s practically perfect, all of it’s flaws are just adorable quirks, I’m neglecting all of my other underwear because I want to spend all of my time with Charlotte, shut up, you don’t understand our love! That said, I will do my best to give an accurate and non-biased review.
