How I got the Best Breasts without having to wear a bra

October 10, 2016

With Summer fast approaching, you best believe this fabmom is once again on the prowl for the best looks of the season to make sure us mommies keep up with the trends while at the same time feeling comfortable and confident in our skin and the clothes we wear.

My current interest is leaning toward the off-the-shoulder trend that’s been coming and going for as long as I can remember, and that’s decided to stick around for this season. However, my first thought when looking at the mostly perky breasted women rocking this look, was: how are my child-battered tieties ever going to survive a day without a bra!

Unthinkable. Until the ladies from lingerie letters contacted me to review their Best Breast product.

It didn’t take me long to fall in love with this seemingly  simple, but rather amazing breast lifting tape. I am especially excited for us moms who steer clear from anything that requires us not to wear a bra, because of…well…gravity.

I discovered to my delight that the tape stays on for up to 8 hours and although maybe not practical for everyday mommy duty, is perfect for a night out on the town or the beach.

It is 100% waterproof so can also be applied under your bikini. If you are expecting the usual stick-ons, you’re in for a surprise. Best Breast  provide a transparent, waterproof, hypoallergenic adhesive solution.

Please note: Skin should be clean from any oils, creams, sweat etc and should be applied on dry skin. Do not use on sensitive skin, scars, and incase of pregnancy. It is recommended to apply for no longer than 8 hours and should be removed before sleeping. 

You can get your Best Breast from Lingerieletters right now at only R139.95 for three sets.

Needless to say, after I tried my Best Breast, I felt confident to flaunt my off-the-shoulder dress and show off my instantly perky girls.

5 fashion essentials (Not just every mom) should buy cheap

August 19, 2016

As a mom I am always on the run. And I don’t mean on the treadmill or even after my kids for that matter.

I’m always on the run to work, coffee with a friend, the shops, Spur with the kids,  after a story for my blog, on my husband’s nerves (yes, I sometimes work on his nerves too) and then of cause we cannot ignore the inevitable school functions.

It’s a fact that no matter where I go or what I do, I like to look good doing it. However, chances are phenomenal I’m going to spill something while I’m at it and it is most likely going to be on myself. I am for this reason striking against contrary belief that all staple fashion items needs to be quality and therefore expensive. In fact I’m now convinced they should be as cheap as you can get them so you don’t feel so guilty when spilling coffee or pasta all over them. can I get an Amen!

Here’s 5 fashion essentials I believe every mom should buy on the cheap

T-shirts

I’m a t-shirt gal. I dress them up and down to suit any occasion and the plain white tee is my all time fave. According to Glamour you should Stock up and not feel guilty if you have to toss it eventually due to spills, stains, or discoloration.

Trendy sunglasses

I’ve come across the coolest, trendiest and bad-ass sunnies sold at many a robot around town for R50.  R20 depending on your negotiating skills.

Not only do I quickly get tired of one style, but i also always lose them.

Glamour says to spend more on that classic black pair you’ll wear forever, but go low when doing funky shapes or bold colors.

Ballet flats

I will never forget the day my daughter’s crazy aunt bought her not one, but two pairs of accessorize ballet flats for R500 each! They both literally only lasted a month. My heart just broke. Not for my daughter, but the beautiful flats.

Adult or child, these beauties take quite a beating and they are so delicate, damage is unavoidable. But they are just so darn cute! So why not buy the cheapies in diffrent styles and color. You’ll be better able to achieve the carefree attitude we so associate with French-girl style.

Thongs
Glamour agrees with me in saying yes to spending more for a beautifully fitted bra, and no thanks to overpriced thongs. There are just way too many cute and cheaper options available.

Sweatpants

I love that the athleisure era is upon us. It means we don’t need any excuse for wearing our yoga pants and sweats almost everyday, every where. Guilty!! Lucky for me there’s little difference between a R100 pair and a R500 one.
