After hearing from all of the different brands about their brand histories, their newest products and their best sellers we had a chance to mingle with all of the other gorgeous bloggers, get fitted PROPERLY
and enjoy a few more cupcakes!
First and biggest surprise of the night?? I have been wearing the wrong bra size for all of about 10 fecking years.
I thought I was like a 34B...I am actually a 30DD. So I went straight up and ordered this gorgeous Wonderbra set in the right size to get things moving. Wonderbra also do a fantastic Ultimate strapless bra which is unlike anything I have seen before. If you are one for wearing strapless outfits (I am definitely not) then you should take a look into it!
Second surprise? Shapewear can actually be rather good looking. I took away some of these Sleek Stripes Hi Waist Briefs from Maidenform in black of course (nude is not a good colour for big panties in my opinion) and even though I was rather sceptical before trying them on I was very pleasantly surprised. They have that whole 50's vibe going on and did a wondrous job of keeping everything feeling like it was in place. Definitely for wearing under nice tight "show off" outfits!!

Anything with Rum in is pretty much a winner in my book.
- 6 ounces unsalted butter, melted and browned to just over 1/2 cup of butter
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons rum, plus more for topping
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/4 cup mashed banana (from about 3 medium bananas)
- 1/2 cup toasted coconut, plus 1/4 cup untoasted coconut for topping

Dad chose the Hagen and Hyde Fish pie which looked and smelt amazing. Unfortunately I can't tell you how good it was because I was tucking into my steak with lightening speed, but Dad finished it all and had a crazy grin on his face so I can assure you it was good :)
