Oh my sweet lord… You need to check out these lads. I was first drawn to them because of the frookin delish pics of their babka all over social media… My eye stomach couldn’t get enough and the climax of me ordering finally arrived.
Luckily for me there was a slot for delivery in my area the very next day so I popped my order through and sat by the door in excitement… The next day (just imagine I’d sat there for the whole time) my babka was hand delivered to me by a lovely cyclist – yay to environmentally friendly local delivery!
Hello there! Today I need need NEED to share this dress with you. Catalyst Latex are a brand I’ve worked with a few times now and their latexwear is banging so when the opportunity arose to model this dress I couldn’t resist! This post will be covering their What’s The Tea dress and my shoot with the lovely Sean O’Malley @omalleyimages on instagram.
This photoshoot was at Butler & Blake in Hackney and be assured it was done at a ‘social distance’ (god I loathe those words now, though am still sticking with the guidance despite hating the wording!). Sean is always great to shoot with and I knew he’d be able to crack out some awesome images!
I’d recently been to see Verity at The Vanity Box to treat myself to a new hair colour and the colourway of the Catalyst dress matched PERFECTLY! So, so pleased. It’s got super cute puff sleeves and bust in a cream/white and the rest is a high waist pencil/bodycon skirt in a lush navy blue. Swoooooooooooooon. The latex is quite thick and so holds you in nicely – super flattering. I don’t often wear pencil dresses and people often think latex can be unflattering but not this piece!
Catalyst are great at creating day-to-day latex clothing as well as the more lingerie, cosplay, fetish side of the outfit world and I think this dress looks so smart. All their clothing come fully chlorinated for ease of use which basically means the latex is smooth and soft – you have the option to shine it up using latex oil/latex lube (as I call it) or leave it to have a more ‘matte’ look. In my shots here I chose to shine it with Pjur Cult shiner.
This photo is one of our finished images taken and edited by Sean OMalley – I love it!

Thanks so much to Sean for the professional photos and Catalyst for the beautiful dress. You can find the rest of the professional images from this set on my OnlyFans account which is filled with more of my modelling work, behind the scenes previews and my pinup photoshoot archive… as OnlyFans is a great platform for people/artists/businesses and isn’t just for x-rated stuff as most may think when they hear the name!

Following on from my post about the Pyramids visit, we also went to see the Sphinx. You’ll definitely have seen photos of this around if you follow my insta and when you think of Egypt probably one of the first images you imagine is of the Sphinx and Pyramids.
We’d previously been at the Middle Pyramid site so took a short coach journey down to the Sphinx location, which isn’t far away at all. It’s actually at the end of a ramp road built in ancient times for transporting prepared bodies from the Sphinx area up to the Pyramids!
It’s pretty impressive to see but isn’t as big as maybe you’d imagine, similar to when I saw the Statue of Liberty. It’s still an epic sight all the same. The main viewing point is from the right side… entering through the Valley Temple of Khafre which was part a mortuary temple, where ceremonies were performed to prepare the dead for burial in the Pyramids (taken up the walkway I mentioned).
When you get through the Temple you get to a walkway so you can stroll along to see down to the butt of the cat (or the sphinxter as I later hilariously named it), though most people stay by the face. It’s in amazing condition and it’s another thing I could take photos of for daiz, with the Pyramids in the background and the colour of the gawjus limestone against the blue sky… Swoon. I liked the paws. It’s a vary majestic kitty cat I must say. It was built around 2558–2532 BC, mucho impressive.
Again similarly to the Pyramids we had a lot of selfie requests and they did interrupt my own tourist photos but the gals who approached me were very sweet/excited so I obliged; one even took a secret selfie with just my legs… and no they weren’t evenly shaven… Sorry kid.
I’d have liked to been able to see the Sphinx from the front front and there was a bit of ground where that was possible, but not for the tour we were on. Ideally I’d trot off to take a look and catch up but the group we were with were in the 65+ age range and we didn’t want to mess anything up for them. I’ll come back again and check it out from the front another time. If you book in for the evening light and sound show then you’ll get a different view but we didn’t stay for that… It’s voiced by Omar Sharif and we don’t imagine it’s changed a lot since the 80s so might be good for the lols but I’m a cheapo so didn’t want to fork out! Have a little Google if you think it’s something you might enjoy, I think tickets were about £28pp GBP.
From the Sphinx you get a view of all three Pyramids, which was pretty epic. We tried to get a photo but had limited time until excited folks gathered in the background to watch the pale tourists with glee. They were super cute.
Again this is a classic and legendary sight so I’d highly recommend a visit. We were there in early November and it was hot but not unbearable so I’d say that’s a pretty good time to go too, and gives a little break from the western Europe chill and rain.
Hello hello hello! We’re now (at time of posting) in lockdown stuck in our flat but at the time of writing I was in holiday in Egypt… so I thought I’d finally whap up this post to tell you about the Pyramids trip we went on. This was our first full day in Egypt and after a day of flights and a late hotel check in the night before, we were collected from the hotel lobby at 8.15am. Ouch!
We booked via Discover Egypt but the actual tour company for this excursion was Wings, in case anyone is interested. The day trip cost was included in our tour package (we had the 10 night Classic Egypt package and stayed on the MS Tulip) but you can find similar on Trip Advisor for around £50-70, which should include a visit to the Pyramids, the Sphinx and Saqqara. If you want to go inside any of the Pyramids it’s extra.
I was recently fortunate enough to have a couple of days in Pisa and Florence but somehow I was foolish enough to not stuff down a pizza during my stay! Don’t worry though, soon after I returned home I received this joyous package at my door from the gang at Eat Pizza Repeat! A pizza to cook in my own kitchen using carefully measured pre-prepped ingredients! Winner!
Ello! How’s it going? Rhetorical perhaps as we’re not actually having a conversation right now… Or are we? Feel free to tell me how you are in the comments! Anyway, today I’m telling ye about Vanta sauce from Chilli Olly, kindly sent to me by The Sauce Shed.
Firstly from appearances this is a very delightful bottle and it warms my emo heart with the pure black and white appearance of the bottle and branding. Could easily whack the design on a shirt and sell a few I reckon. Kinda like a band name or something!
Full disclosure: I received a discount in exchange for this experience but as always my reviews are genuine. I have to pop this paragraph in here as part of my agreement with Hype Experiences, the experience manager who arranged this trip: “Thank you @hype_experiences_london for arranging this media delivery. If you are a content creator, I recommend joining their community to review products! More info here https://hypeexperiences.com/about-for-reviewers“
SO! You’re in London, you’ve seen Bond films at some point, you’re not afraid of water, you like going fast and have planned ahead and booked…..yesssss, it’s the Ultimate London Adventure from the Thames Rockets! A 50 minute completely different way to experience some of the sights of London.
Hello welcome, welcome! It’s Small Business Sunday (is that a thing? Should we make it a thing?) and I’m sharing some love for the newly sprouted Malachite Candles! Malachite are the new kids on the block in the vegan candle world and they’ve launched with a bang! I am very much a habitual candle sniffer so when these bad bois came out I was super excited!
I recently had the pleasure of modelling this super cute 100% cotton tee for Mischief Made! I love having the opportunity to model more casual outfits because casual is my style the vast majority of the time.
Happy lockdown, guys, gals and everyone else! I’m reviewing the #beachathomebox today featuring a booze juice called Aloha 65 and a nail varnish from London Grace; I have to pop this paragraph in here as part of my agreement with Hype Experiences, the experience manager providing me with the products:
Full disclosure: this is my first experience with Hype and I paid £2 to receive and review the products! First onto the bottle of Aloha 65 which initially drew me to the listing to review…the branding is super pretty and, as a gal who enjoys a bit of retro shizzle and simple design, I was pretty much sold on this product visually straight away. I really like the look of the bottle and the website; bright, colourful and tropical! Seems like my sort of beverage! The flavours mentioned on the label are pineapple, ginger, chilli and lemon which sounds already like something I’d mix up into a drink. Lovely stuff, promising.
