Our most popular playful blog posts of 2012!


As I'm sure you are well aware, we have survived another year, despite a failed apocalypse and the UK transport network at a stand-still due to a bit of wet weather (what's new?).

And as it is the time for reflection, I thought I'd take a look at some of 2012's most popular blog posts!

One of our most popular posts from back in April is all about the costumes behind prohibition-based drama, Boardwalk Empire.

Now that I've finished watching the third season I may go back and write a new blog post about some of the lingerie featured!
