Weird Belgium Thing (HNS?)
So I was embarking on my journey home, and browsing around the Brugge station while waiting for the train. I popped into the little shop to get some Looza juice, and I glanced through the magazines.

Not surprisingly, they were all in Dutch. However I found the strangest thing: it's an issue to Cosmopolitan, and it included a gift of a free bikini!




I was intrigued and amused enough that I bought one. Despite my inability to read Dutch, I had some pictures to thumb through on the first leg of my journey. Plus, free swimwear! How could I go wrong? Looking at the pictures and trying to read the words kept me amused and awake enough to easily make my connection in Antwerp, which was a good thing. I tucked my new bikini into my backpack, and didn't really think about it again until today. Naturally, I had to try it on....



I've also decided this counts as a Partially Underclothed Sunday photo!

Whoo hoo!

When you promised us another picture of the bikini, I had no idea … none whatsoever. What a pleasant surprise! Hot, my dear, quite hot!

Ah, see... I had a pretty good hunch that's what she meant. I wouldn't have clicked through without a 50/50 chance she was going to be modeling. :-D

Thank you!

Only the top half is flattering actually, but hey 50% is not bad for a magazine swimsuit!

Looking great!

So it's a one-size-fits-all bikini, or did they have magazines marked with different sizes?

It's "one size fits most", or however you say that in Dutch -- it's the kind where it's all straps, and you tie the pieces together in bows.

Oh, and thank you!

Ah, that makes sense!

Cool! I wonder what other free stuff they give out with magazines in Belgium.

I suspect it'd be best not to go there…

Lol, yeah, probably not...

If they give away bikinis in cosmo issues in Belgium, just think what the Amsterdam edition would have.

*gigglesnort* I can only imagine. O.O



Of course if he was tall, dark & handsome (& not hygienically challenged)... ;-)

I wondered why you said BIkini but only showed us MONOkini.

Her hair looks good in that shot and that is a devilish smile.

It looks great on you!

I wonder if not enough Americans look good enough to hand out free bikinis here...

Anyway, pretty shot!

As I clicked on the cut link I was all prepared to complain that we wanted a picture of you wearing it. Happily I didn't need to complain.

Thanks.
