Why You Should Invest In New Undies For Uni (& 20% OFF AT BOUX)

I remember heading off to uni, without a care in the world. I was desperate to get out of the London bubble that I grew up in – to meet new people, and explore a whole new country (it was only Wales, but it counts, okay?) Honestly, setting myself up with a good foundation at uni was the last thing on my mind, and bar the obviously essentials (ie. duvet cover, desk lamp, plates) I didn’t put much thought into setting myself up with a good foundation. What do I mean by that? Hmmm, well I didn’t really spend any time, or money, on me.

There really is nothing more intimate than your undies. Underwear has the magical ability to comfort you, empower you, and make you feel drop dead gorgeous. It’s such a personal thing – thongs or briefs, padded or unpadded…

Does red make you feel sexy, or do you feel more bombshell in pastel tones? It’s all about you, and how your undies make you feel. If you want to wear a kick-ass red lacey bra to your first lecture, do it! If it’s going to make you feel more confident, that’s all that counts. My Chloe set from Boux is the perfect set for when I need a little confidence boost!

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes comfort has to come first. With a 32DD/E chest, wearing bulky, padded bras with underwire is certainly not my idea of fun during a 2-hour-long 9am lecture. All hail the T-shirt bra! I love a good, comfy bra like this nude one from Boux, it totally takes the complication out of boob support!

Are you one of those gals that’s lucky enough to be able to wear a delicate, unpadded lace number on a day to day basis? If so, I’m incredibly jealous. With my large chest (and pierced nips), I can barely get away with such a bra, however my boyfriend does find it ridiculously cute. For me, it’s definitely a piece for behind closed doors.

Speaking of closed doors, there’s going to be quite a bit of that going down at uni. Everyone knows that it happens, and it’s totally natural. Just keep safe, kiddos. Whilst many people believe that buying sexy pieces is primarily to entice a partner, I totally disagree. Confidence is the key to looking and feeling sexy. I’ll even admit that I feel more myself in the bedroom when I’m wearing something that makes me feel amazing.

Latoya Lace Body*

Queue the most perfect body ever. Boux Avenue have it so right with this lil lace puppy. Oh how delicate this piece is. From the ivory tone, to the beautiful lace and chiffon details – this has my heart. Oh, and I can safely say that I feel so sexy in it. If you’re a girl who likes to wear underwear as outer wear you could totally wear this out with a boob tube, or some pasties if you’re super confident, and rock it to a club!

Black Lace Teddy*

If you’re more into a classic bedtime teddy, this one might just be for you. It’s beautifully sheer, whilst retaining femininity through the delicate use of lace and figure-fitting shape. It’s definitely one for the romantics out there!

Cosy Leopard Socks*

One uni essential that I totally got into as soon as I arrived, was loungewear. I am totally a creature of comfort. Fluffy socks, yaaaas! Oversized bedtime shirt, even more yaaaas! I’ve always been about living a comfortable life, so investing in some pretty loungewear is very important to my state of mind (especially when I have a 15 page essay to write…)

(I’ll admit, I have my eyes on this Reed Diffuser for my living room shh!)

Honestly, when you first move to uni, home fragrance might not be the first thing that comes to mind. It might not even appear on your first big shop with the rents (bar a budget air freshener). It certainly wasn’t an essential for me when I first started uni, however I have definitely matured past this. I live for home fragrance now, and you wont find a room in my flat that doesn’t have some form of fragrance going on. Whether it be candles, wax melts, or room spray – I have it all!

And now my room literally smells like Boux Avenue. Yes, I do mean the shop. You know that fresh, soft, floral yummy scent that envelops around you when you walk into your nearest Boux? My room literally smells like that now, and I love it.

My boyfriend has commented on how delicate, yet girly, our place is scented – even he loves it! Plus, I’m really enjoying matching my fragrance with with my room scent. Oh, and as they’re all the same light floral scent, there’s not scent-clashing throughout my home. I feel like it is a very sophisticated way to fragrance my home, and I feel very feminine and womanly doing so!

    I love Boux Avenue, I just bought myself a set from them and it's so nice. I haven't tried their PJ's or bodysprays yet though, will have to grab those next time. The lace teddy is beautiful too xxTamz | http://www.throughneweyesx.com
