Third Love Luxury Lingerie

Press Sample
There have been studies that show that somewhere around 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.  I have to admit that once upon a time I as one of them. How many of you had an idea what your bra size was, and over the years you just kept buying that size? That was me a few years ago. I never really took into account that not only had I gained some weight but my body shape had changed also, I was in denial I suppose.

Finally after being OVER bras that were not comfortable, I went and had a bra fitting. I have been fitted by a professional for bras before but, this time, the associate got more up close and personal. Nothing inappropriate, but I was not used to a stranger adjusting the girls so much. Needless to say not only was I wearing the wrong size, I was way off. My jaw nearly hit the floor when the fitter told me my size was 36C, I had been buying 34B’s for so many years.  If shopping for a bra is something you would prefer to do online in the comfort and privacy of your own home ThirdLove, an online lingerie boutique just might be what you have been wishing for.  Read more

Banish Panty Lines; Go Commando


Thank you to Cottonelle for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to #GoCommando!

There are so many factors that go into choosing an outfit for a special occasion. Once the dress, shoes and accessories are picked you can’t forget the undergarments. The wrong undergarments can easily ruin the look. Let’s be real visible panty lines are not cute. I know some of  you might be saying well duh that is when you wear a thong or a slip, do people under 80 even wear slips anymore? Sometimes a dress is so form fitting even a thong will have a line.

Earlier this year I mentioned doing some beauty dares, well I’m adding a fashion dare to the mix by going commando. I have a few formal events coming up this year and I have already been looking online for dresses. I see already I have some work to do since everything I like is a bit form fitting, and that also means I will have to step out of the comfort zone and go commando.


Did you catch the Oscars last week? I love watching the stars on the red carpet and admiring all the beautiful dresses. I have no doubt with some of those figure hugging dresses more than one lady was confidently going commando.

Marika Magic Slimming Capri’s

Fashion/ fitness
For the past few months I have been back into exercising regularly again. As we role into the cooler weather months it is getting hard and harder to get up early but I am staying focused.  Comfort is important to me, I invested in some new sneakers and slowly I am expanding my workout wardrobe. Depending on the workout I am doing loose fitting pants are not always the most appropriate, leggings or capri’s work better for yoga, barre, pilates and even biking days.  I tested out the marika magic slimming capri’s and I am happy to report not only were they comfortable, they kept all my jiggle in place.

Sometimes I feel like a bum running errand in my workout clothes before hitting the gym, but not in these. I threw a jacket over my workout tank and was completely confident running around in these. 

The cotton/spandex blend material is breathable and kept me cool, I wasn’t a gross sweaty mess when I was finished. Marika Magic is also available in a straight leg and boot leg variation and I anticipate picking up t least one full leg version for the cooler months.
