Legs out - for National Stockings Day!

Just over a week ago I got my kit off in public. Not all of my kit, just, you know, most of it. So, you ask - have times become so hard you have resorted to stripping? Not quite...I was helping celebrate National Stockings Day!

I am currently freelancing for fabulous PR agency Nobull Communications, and one of the clients I am helping to promote is none other than British hosiery brand, Charnos. So to cut a long story short, myself and fellow Nobull-ites Ali and Vic headed into London to cause quite a stir in our sexy stockings, encourage others to wear them, and raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

We modelled three of the, quite simply stunning, Charnos 75th range of hosiery released to promote the brand's landmark birthday. The products in collection are named after iconic sexy starlets so we each took on the names of our stockings we wore, I became 'Ava', Ali became 'Marilyn' and Vic became 'Katharine'.

Those who know me will also know I am a bit of a prude when it comes to taking my clothes off, and knowing I was going to be standing next to two stunning and super slim girlies caused me quite a few worries about my wobbly bits being on show. Thankfully a pair of Charnos sheers underneath my stockings preserved quite a bit of my dignity, as did a sexy thermal top from M&S (which will definitely be worn with a little black skirt over Christmas). To prepare my thighs for public exposure I had, of course, been slathering them in my latest wonder-product, Elemis's pro-collagen body cream, and trying to eat a few less cakes.

At 5.30am we headed out in our sexy little outfits and quite literally stopped traffic when we took part in a photoshoot at Piccadilly Circus for National News and Pictures photographer Rick Findler. We dropped samples to celebs and gave out free stockings to members of the public. We even visited Johnny Vaughn and Lisa Snowdon at Capital FM...Johnny was quite a fan of our outfits!

We kept our eyes peeled and we spotted coverage from; The Metro, The Scottish Sun, Orange, Pictures of the Day, plus blogs and lots of coverage through Twitter!
