Valentine's Day - Love it or Hate it?

Valentine's Day is just around the corner and while many of you ladies may be starting to swell with anticipation, others simply hate the day.  Maybe because your solo or maybe because it is too comercialized for your taste. But in any event, love is in the air and when in as the Romans do.  

If you are flying solo this Valentine's Day, get together with some single gal pals and exchange little gifts that make you feel like the Divas that you are.  Have a lingerie party or an at home spa party where you share your favorite bubble bath, make-up, soap, lotions or massage oils.  

Feeling like you are the only one that isn't hooked up for the Holiday?  Pamper yourself!  Take the time to light a candle and soak in that tub of luxurious bubble bath or pick up a love spell bath bomb from Arcella's then exfoliate with a salt scrub and moisturize with your favorite lotion scent! 

Maybe your coupled up for Valentine's 2011 but are just plain out of ideas on how to spend it......well this Valentine's relax with the one you love.  Create a cozy dinner at home with your favorite Archipelago Botanicals candle, silk rose petals scattered about and a sexy little bustier or chemise waiting to be discovered.  You can make it a playful evening with new products from the Kama Sutra company like their chocolate body paint, or give each other a relaxing massage with their massage oils.  

No matter what your status this Valentine's Day love yourself, love your friend and love the one your with!

A Funny Lingerie Story

A good friend and customer recently shared  a lingerie mishap with me that I just couldn't resist passing along. 

Marissa (name changed for privacy) had purchased a perfectly fitting, sexy little black chemise from our store and was excited to show it off for her hubby.  She left the store with her lingerie purchase, went home showered with her new Zents soap and then moisturized her body in her new Zents shea butter lotion.  Marissa slipped into her sexy little chemise and proceeded to get dressed for dinner date with her husband.  She was feeling on top of the world.  Marissa and her husband enjoyed their meal and returned home.  Marissa teased her hubby with the straps of her little black number and tried to seduce him, but he was just too FULL from the wonderul food!  Disappointed, they retired to bed and Marissa put away her little black chemise for another occassion.

A few months later, Marissa nad Hubby went on a vacation get away to Las Vegas.  Marissa thought to herself, what a perfect place and opportunity to try out the sexy little black chemise!  Marissa dressed herself again and they left for an afternoon and evening on the town.   They walked and walked and walked.  After a full evening of food and sites,  they returned to the hotel room.  Marissa was ready for action, but was feeling a little sweaty from all the walking around, so she thought she would take a quick shower first and then slip back into her lingerie. When she emerged from the shower ready  for action, Hubby was rolling with seams Marissa's little black chemise had left black dye stains on her skin on all of the most curvaceous parts of her body.

So ladies, sometimes, the romantic evening doesn't always work out as you planned, but if you can laugh together they say that is the best medicine anyway. 

Tip - Always,wash your lingerie before wearing.  Consider the lotion you put on your body before your lingerie and also weather you will be active for a long period of time before you intend to reveal your sexy little outfit. 

Until next time
