Catalyst Latex – What’s The Tea Dress

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!

The features of this dress from the Catalyst site are below in case you’re interested, and for reference I’m 5’4″ with an approx 28″ waist and am wearing a size XS.

Second Shot coffee – Bethnal Green, London

Hello there, I wanted to share a recent discovery with you… I was off to get my nails done at my usual place (Hollywood Star Nails in Bethnal Green) but today I didn’t book so had to wait for someone to be free to fix my hands up real nice. I took the opportunity to pop by to Second Shot to bide my time. I’ve bought a take out coffee from Second Shot a few times before now but hadn’t ever sat in, and I’m glad I did this time.

Cavallo – Vienna, Austria

Guten morgen from Österreich! I’ve made it a focus to visit some new cities and with my main travel focus being eating, it’d be rude if I didn’t share some edible gems with y’all as I go.

So on the menu today we have Cavallo! A very cute and well decorated bar Cafe restaurant type place…yes, you know I’m a sucker for aesthetic restaurants.  This one in particular is ‘on it’ displaying many exposed bulbs with metal wire lampshades, a super nice colour scheme, soft looking furniture and it’s all just very aesthetically pleasing. It doesn’t stop with the furnishings and decoration either. Upon arrival we’re seated on a comfy corner bench seat and handed a menu each… The menus are magazines! Such a good idea. You pretty much get to see a photo of each dish and drink on offer and not like you would on a laminated double side menu in a cheap cafe, this has been properly done. Love it.

Holybelly – Canal Saint Martin, Paris

Bonjour from Paris! Today I am bringing you some brunch lushness, right in yo’ face!

When I booked this little trip away I specifically didn’t want to be lumped in a touristy area, so chose to look up the ‘hipster’ parts of Paris. Yes, I am a twerp. I love this stuff.  The area I picked I mainly chose because it was less than five minutes away from the best boulangerie in the city but on our walk to said boulangerie, we stumbled upon Holybelly. And holy cow…it tickled my belly. A hipster brunch paradise on a cute little Parisienne street. Who’d have thunk it?

International Cheese Awards 2019 – Nantwich, UK

Six weeks ago, if you’d asked me to describe my “happy place,” I would have talked about my wedding day. Now that I’ve experienced the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch, it’s a little too close to call.

If you don’t like cheese, this is where you stop reading (there are plenty of other Fork My Piehole posts that will work for you instead so check those out).

Picture yourself in a white room draped with cloths, grapes, figs, you’re handed some Prosecco, and most importantly there’s more cheese than you could ever eat. Are you in heaven? No, you’re at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch. And yes, this is an event that already happened, but in just two short weeks the real deal is coming to a field near you if you live in Nantwich: the International Cheese & Dairy Awards 2019, and guess who’s been invited to be a part of the judging panel.
