Rock the girls…it’s crystal clear. 

In a continuation of my desire to support #womeninbiz, and with special reference to yesterday’s blog post ‘The adventures of Ella Vine and her poppy stockings and poppy suspender belt’ https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/the-adventures-of-ella-vine-and-her-poppy-stockings-and-poppy-suspender-belt/, I have looked further into Ella Vine’s lovely lingerie collection.

Of fascinating interest is… https://ellavine.co.uk/products/black-bra-with-semi-precious-rose-quartz-the-stone-of-love

The benefits of semi-precious stones and crystals is not a field in which I have expertise; but I know a lady that has. 

In my blog post ‘Life’s a party. Dress like it’ I had the opportunity to chat with the lovely Kirstie from AstroRocksUK… https://rations2rocknroll.wordpress.com/2017/08/16/lifes-a-party-dress-like-it/ …in which I asked Kirstie about her enthusiasm for crystals.

Kirstie @AstroRocksUK “I work with and sell crystals for healing and the home. Crystals have been in my life since I was a child in some form or other as semi-precious stone and finding curious rocks on various beaches, until about 20 years ago when a friend introduced me them to help me with my symptoms. (I have M.E). Being of a scientific mind I was blown away by the sensations I could feel from these pretty rocks such as amethyst, rose quartz, citrine and jasper and something deep inside was triggered. My intuition. I then trained in Crystal Healing to deepen my understanding in 2003 whilst still in my career as an HR professional, teaching and sharing my love for crystals along the way. Now, I divide my time between Sparkle O’Hara and my own business, Astro-Rocks where I sell and teach others about crystals, and provide Astrology readings. I am also planning on writing a book about my experience with crystals and how crystal can support our personal growth and our evolution.”

Ella Vine, whose website may be found at https://ellavine.co.uk/collections/all , says “…that it is good to raise awareness…and bras look so pretty with the stones on! Why hide such beautiful precious little things in the bra? It also avoids the fuss of taking the bra off…and a handful of stones rolling out.”

Kirstie from AstroRocksUK may be found at https://crystallisingdream.wordpress.com/ , advises “I am always recommending to ladies to wear crystals in bras.”

The adventures of Ella Vine and her poppy stockings and poppy suspender belt.

@Rations2R_n_R has a passion for supporting #womeninbiz and we are especially excited about Ella Vine and the innovative ‘Clip and Go’ poppy stockings and poppy suspender belt.

Attaching suspender straps to stockings; especially those at the back, can be problematic, with the wearer often having to become a specialist in the art of contortion. 

To help stocking wearers all over the world lingerie designer Ella Vine has developed a suspender belt which attaches to stockings by way of magnetic fastenings on both the suspender strap and stocking welt.

The Ella Vine website https://ellavine.co.uk/ showcases a variety of delightful lingerie sets including the lovely ‘Royal Blue Bra & Suspender Belt Set’. 

The gorgeous mix of satin-like rich royal blue with cream lace does not disappoint as it is as lovely in the flesh as it looks above. Bra and suspender belt set priced at £39.00.

The accompanying 10 denier Ultra Gloss stockings feature a pretty lace welt. 

Priced at £12.00.

Presentation of lingerie is vital to add an extra dose of sparkle and Ella Vine does not let down with your selection arriving in a pretty box featuring the fabulous Ella Vine logo.

As for the world’s first magnetic suspender belt as Ella herself says, and I can only agree, it is both very fast and very easy to attach to the stockings…just ‘Clip and Go’.
