It’s just three weeks to go before we head over the pond to the US of A for the International Lingerie Show. ?Since attending the April Show, we’ve had various media agencies and talk show hosts have a bit of fun at our expense, including Jimmy Kimmel and even CNBC Squawk Box (I hope you guys received your orders?!?)
