The weather has finally started to brighten up a bit and last weekend, I was able to take Ziva for a little walk without having to change into waterproofs!

We’re reaching the end of summer but the weather is still quite warm and I haven’t properly started thinking about my winter wardrobe yet (though I have done a small clear out to make way for new pieces) so this month has been about make up, lingerie and comfy shoes.
I desperately needed some new make up and there seem to be quite a few new palettes out at the moment. The ones I decided to go for are the illamasqua sculpting palette and the urban decay smokey eye palette. I was initially sceptical about the sculpting palette as the colours look a bit dark and warm for me but I went into selfridges and got them to try it out on me and decided it was just what I needed. I was immediately drawn to the naked smokey palette because of the greater variety in tone compared to the previous ones. I also love the larger mirror and the fact that the shades really compliment the ones in the sculpting palette.
My love of strappy lingerie is no secret so I wanted to feature a couple of my recent favourites. The bra is from one of my own recent collection, Vanguard and the briefs are from a designer I’ve loved for a while, so I had to get a pair when they went in the sale. The colour probably seems like a bit of an odd choice but I have loads of black lingerie and am trying to branch out a bit.
Finding stylish comfy shoes is always a bonus and the brogues in particular, are a bargain. I also need some new docs and since I’ve realised black is really the most practical boot colour for me, I decided to go for some texture with the snake print.
Photographer Al Overdrive emailed me this morning to share this set of photos, taken about a year ago, backstage at the katzenjammer club, just after the fashion show.
It was the shortest Eustratia show ever, with the least amount of models, but there was certainly no lack of glamour.

And last but not least, myself. My years of modelling do come in handy when I’m a model short for a show!
As you all know I’m quite into latex fashion so I’ve decided to add a new, monthly feature that highlights what kind of latex I’m currently into.
At the moment I love harness details and I’ve been working on getting clearer product pictures of the harness style items I’ve already created for Eustratia.
Here are my top picks:
As a special treat, I’ve also decided to keep the sale on till Sunday to give everyone who gets paid on Friday an extra change at a bargain.
The featured products can be found here , here,here and here.
Today we went to a barbeque and got the chance to take some pictures on the way.
