Valentine’s Day Gift Guide 2010

♥ IT’S ALL ABOUT THE PACKAGING!

In real estate, it’s location, with matters of the heart (and loins!), it’s the 5 senses – including packaging. Look how amazing this looks from our friends at Booty Parlor!! Booty Parlor is one of my all-time favorite sexy brands. I use to work for Booty Parlor founders Dana and Charlie Meyers, back in my PR days. They are always so kind to keep me up to date on their new products. One of my favorite things about them – is the packaging! IF you need a gift for a girlfriend, boyfriend, or just a friend – you can not go wrong with these sweet little boxes full of goodies for a he or she!! 

♥ (SEX) CANDLES!


I love these new milk pitcher candles from them. They come with a lid and you can use them after for milk with your coffee. I keep mine on near the bath for now – there is still plenty of wax. ***Adendum, silly me has just learned from my readers that these are actually sex candles – the lip is so that you can poor wax onto your partner and it turns to oil. And is somehow not too hot.

Don’t Stop Massage Candle – $36.00 – You can set the scene for seduction with this candle’s enticing glow, and drizzle the warm oil onto bare skin for the ultimate sensual massage. It’s formula contains a low-melting point natural soy wax with skin nourishing vitamins A & E, as well as jojoba, olive and coconut oils. The wax melts down into a long-lasting massage oil that will feel excitingly warm on the skin, but will not burn. It’s available in Exotic Sandalwood Vanilla and Spicy Chocolate Cinnamon and is paraben-free!

♥ SILK HONEY (ACTUALLY IT’S LUBE!)

They also sent along three Skin Honeys – a kissable body topping (massage gel, personal lubricant). You can drizzle the non-sticky, water-based formula anywhere you want to kiss or be kissed. It’s infused with Honey Extract, (for nourishing moisture), Goji Berry (for a healthy antioxidant boost), and Ginseng, (to energize the mind and stimulate sensual desire!). It’s available in three flavors – Pomegranate Honey, Vanilla Honey Chai and Chocolate Honey.

***At the time these photos were taken, I did not get the part about the lubricant. Nothing inappropriate for the workplace or children follows these photos in the bath tub.

 

♥ SINGLE? LADIES NIGHT!

If you are single this Valentine’s Day – there is no better time to get together with your girls and throw a Booty Parlor party.

♥ A DAY TIME DATE

Renoir in the 20th Century
Opens February 14
BCAM
Broad Contemporary art Museum at LACMA

Renoir in the 20th Century focuses on the last three decades of Renoir’s career, when, following his rupture with impressionism. Renoir’s paintings from this period, which have never been studied and shown as such, are often misunderstood as they do not fit comfortably into the history of high modernism. This exhibition is the first one ever mounted by LACMA.
Tickets: $20 for Renoir.
Join LACMA to receive two free tickets to both Renoir and American Stories.

♥ A HOTEL STAY!

If I had my way, I would spend every weekend at the hotel next door to my building.

The Beverly Hills Hotel & Bungalows has a special two night escape that features welcome Champagne and strawberries, daily breakfast for two, a luxurious La Prairie couples massage and a $150 dining credit. This is really a great way to feel like your on a crazy getaway and you cant beat the price.

Seriously, just for one second think of how many times you would have sex and laugh at the Beverly Hills hotel for two nights versus your boyfriend’s apartment or your house. See?
