UPDATE! The winner of the Leslie Green Necklace is lea322 for this comment:

“One year, when I was in high school, my mom gave me a delicate gold necklace for Valentine’s Day. The pendant is a little heart with a small pearl in the middle. It’s extremely subtle and understated, but I love it. My mom always made Valentine’s Day special with a gift for my sister and I. She always shows us how much she loves us, but with all the added pressure of “relationships” on V-Day, she made sure to do something just a little more special to make sure we knew that with or without a guy, we were loved. That necklace is something I will always love and appreciate.”

Thank you for all your sweet (and not-so sweet) stories. Keep reading »

UPDATE!The winner of the Bare Necessities gift card is wikid for this comment:

When shopping for lingerie the most important rule I follow is this: Does it turn me on to think about wearing it? This encompasses a few things: is it comfortable? Is it flattering? Do I feel sexy in it? Will my partner like it? But most of all it should reflect your desires and fantasies. Ultimately, lingerie is a way to escape to Sexyville and if it doesn’t have the gas to get you there, then you and your partner are both going to be stranded.

Thanks for all your lingerie-buying tips! Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Urban Outfitters V-Day prize pack is LadyMacBeth for this comment:

I have plenty of gut wrenchingly shameful stories, but anyone from my area could put me and my screen name together. It’s a small state and my exceptional creativity combined with my lack of self-preservation and poor judgment means I’m going to cling to the veil of anonymity. Here’s something that I’m not proud of, but hey, it worked…

When a certain, younger version of my PA moved into my dorm I cleverly deduced from the number of concert t-shirts he wore that he was a fan of something called NIN.  Went and got me a CD and played it with my dormroom door open so he would hear as he passed and hopefully notice. Of course he did.  The pained look on my face (I listened only to country music and filk at that point in time.) probably gave me away.  He said he knew something was up when I told him I found the CD relaxing.

He was a CS major and very willing to share software.  I was the first person in my family to get her own computer and I was thrilled by this – I’d been doing just fine on the Works program that came with the computer but after a two sentence conversation with the future PA I suddenly agreed that I needed something called Office installed on my computer. But, of course, I’d never done that kind of thing before and had no idea how to go about it…

A few months more of these “clever” schemes and finally our entire dorm took pity on my obviousness and his oblivion and took drastic measures. We’ll have been together 16 years this week.

Thanks for all your comments! Keep reading »

Nothing Says Happy Valentine’s Like Rap Lyrics

Drawn from rap lyrics, Stank Sentiments for Sweethearts offers a different sort of non-lovey-dovey nostalgia with their series of Valentine’s Day cards. Featuring sayings like “I love it when you call me big papa,” “Lick me like a lollipop,” “Let’s talk about sex, baby,” “Bad, bad, bad boy (you make me feel so good)” and my fave, above, from the classic song “Me So Horny” (which was inspired by a line in the movie “Full Metal Jacket”). Nothing says love like 2 Live Crew! [KuroCo on Etsy via Cool Hunting] Keep reading »

Get Some Shut-Eye With Dita

Ever fashionable and classy-styled Dita von Teese is bringing her aesthetic to the bedroom, thanks to Moschino. The retro queen, known for her red lips and soft Hollywood curls, put her design mind to work to create a limited-edition sleep mask for the brand. In the end, Dita fashioned a pink silk-satin eye mask with rhinestone embellishments, feathers and lace with trompe l’oeil eyelash detailing, complete with its very own case (all for $130), so now even falling asleep can become a stylish moment. What’s even better is the fact that 30 percent of the proceeds will be donated to amfAR. So sleep soundly knowing your new purchase is going towards a good cause. [Moschino] Keep reading »

UPDATE! The winner of the Dawn Spencer Hurwitz St. Valentine fragrance is PostcardsFromFarAway for this comment:

“Every type of occasion (work versus leisure) requires a different type of scent. I personally like to pick out a couple of different small (even travel sized!) colognes for the S.O.—something tried and true (based off of his previous tastes) and something new (based off of my tastes). That way, you don’t blow all your cash on one purchase he might not like AND you give him a little eau de variety. wink”

Thank you for all your comments and tips. Keep reading »

Always remember that no matter how much you love being around your BF/BFF/RMM there is a threshold of too much US time. The only person that is going to be with you your whole life is YOU! Never lose touch with yourself and this will keep your US time with others in check. Compromise is the key to all relationships, give and take! Especially when it comes to your time.
