Soak Lingerie Wash Review

A few months ago I wrote a post about proper bra washing. At that time I was washing my delicates with borax and baby shampoo, and that works just fine, but I’ve been curious about all of the different lingerie washes available. One that I’ve seen mentioned a lot is Soak, which I’ve actually come across more often in the crocheting corners of the internet that I lurk in than the lingerie corners.

Wishlist Wednesday: Inspired by Conversation Hearts

When I think about Valentine’s Day, my first thought isn’t flowers or chocolate or romance…it’s conversation hearts.

Yeah, those chalky little candies. I don’t know why. I don’t even really like the damn things. (Though I can make an exception if they’re in the form of that cake up there. Those candies are decorating an absolutely delicious-sounding strawberries and cream cake made by Ali at Gimme Some Oven. I want to eat that. Actually, I want to eat a lot of the stuff on that site…)

Since conversation hearts are my (understandable but a little weird) go-to Valentine’s Day mental image, I thought that today I’d show you guys some gorgeous pieces that come in colors to match them! This entry is going to be heavy on pictures and rather light on information. I usually include shopping options and links to reviews on my Wishlists, but life is hectic right now, as I alluded to in my last post. The happy news is that it’s hectic because my 17 year old sister has come to live with us, but unhappily, that comes with quite a lot of paperwork to fill out, phone calls to make (I hate phone calls so much), and errands to run. Hopefully things will be calming down around here shortly. I am including available sizes here, though. I know how much it sucks to fall in love with a bra and not know if it comes in your size until you investigate further. Best to get the disappointment over with quickly, I think!

Anyway, on to the undies! Continue reading


Something Else Sunday: Non-Lingerie Valentine’s Gifts

Woo, am I having some family problems in my personal life! It is stressful, to say the least. I’ll be trying my best to keep up with the blog but if I disappear, I’m handling some stuff that needs handling and I’ll be back ASAP. So, since my personal life is all heavy right now, I want to write a nice, light, fluffy post.

The previous and next (and maybe the one after that…) Wishlist Wednesday posts are all about Valentine’s Day inspired lingerie, but maybe that’s not the type of gift you like to give or receive. No worries! I have lots of ideas for gifts that are still great but appropriate outside of the bedroom.
