Wedding Gift For Newlyweds

August 8th, 2013

Spicy Subscriptions is a really fun service that discreetly sends intimacy products to your door each month. They have two box options (more on that later), and the one I’m reviewing today is the Premium Spice Box.

Before I get to the items, here’s the breakdown on Spicy Subscriptions. The Premium Spice Box costs $24.95/month, and the Deluxe Spice Box is $34.95/month. Both options contain a curated collection of romance, intimacy, and beauty products hand-picked from the Spice Shop.

The Premium Box contains one flirty item (a toy of some sort, usually), 1-2 full-sized products, and 3.6 trial sized products.

The Deluxe Box contains one deluxe item, 1-2 full-sized products, one deluxe accessory, and 3-6 trial sized products.

A sample of the Premium Box definitely had some interesting items!

  • Pipedream Products Vibrating Ring – Yes, this is exactly what you think it is. I used the Crazy Girl spray to cover a key word on the packaging because I just wasn’t comfortable with displaying it on the blog, but…yes. That’s what this is!
  • Crazy Girl Diva Pheromone Dust – I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this at first because it’s in the shade “Silver Vixen,” and since my skin is medium with yellow undertones I wasn’t sure if it would just make me look like a silvery robot. But it actually is just a light dusting of silver sparkle, and it smells really great (like vanilla).
  • Crazy Girl Oral Sex Gel in Cotton Candy – Flavored products are interesting to me because I’m always unsure about whether or not they’ll taste like what they’re supposed to. I sprayed a bit on my hand and this definitely smells and tastes like cotton candy!
  • O My International Clitoral Gel – This is a stimulating gel for women.
  • Sample Products – Masque Oral Strips in Mango, Empowered Product’s Gun Oil, and System JO!

Bottom Line: The Spicy Subscriptions Premium Spice Box has consistently had a good mixture of items for adults. I like that they include beauty items as well as intimacy products. I think this is the perfect subscription for people like me, who are a little bit shy about purchasing items like these.

A Personalized Gift For Your Bridesmaid

July 22nd, 2012

We all know that preparing for a wedding is a massive undertaking with so much to think of and do. For a bride to be, through the lead up to the wedding, bridesmaids are worth their weight in gold for the moral and practical support that they give. Saying thank you with a small gift is a gesture which can mean so much to the giver and the receiver as it will remain a token of the bond between the two of you and is a lovely way to commemorate the day of your wedding and your bridesmaid, or bridesmaids, sharing in that with you.


Jewelry is a traditional and enduring gift and so provides a lovely long lasting memory of the day. A very pretty way to ensure that the jewelry you give to your bridesmaid marks your wedding day beautifully is to choose a personalised gift.

The most obvious way of personalising jewelry is by engraving an item to include a personal message or an initial. Rings and pendants are the most obvious choice for engraving, and many jewelry companies can provide a jewelry engraving service along with the jewelry that they sell.

A quirky gift that will symbolise a shared hometown is a state necklace, where the pendant outline is of the state or city where you grew up or lived together.


If you prefer a more personal gift to each bridesmaid; birthstone jewelry is a fabulous way to do this. The jewelry can be a necklace, earrings or a right hand ring and by including a birthstone in their gift, you will be giving them something that will be important and relevant to them forever.

For those with several bridesmaids, another gorgeous option is to choose jewelry that complements their bridesmaid dress. If your bridesmaids are in a luscious plum for a winter wedding, then a garnet pendant would look stunning with this and be a perfect piece of jewelry for them to wear on the big day itself, so co-ordinating their look on the day as well as giving them a lasting gift for afterwards.

Free Honeymoon Registry

September 9th, 2011

Many couples find that the best way to start their married life together is by sharing experiences and making memories. The honeymoon is a great opportunity to do this — to go somewhere exotic and exciting perhaps, or spend time relaxing together, away from work and everyday worries.


More and more couples also find that they already have enough household items by the time they get married. Rather than put together a traditional gift registry and ask their guests for typical things that they don’t need, a honeymoon registry is a great way to plan their honeymoon and also make guests feel like they are helping a marriage begin with personal time together.


After the expense of a wedding though, a fun and exciting honeymoon might seem too expensive. A honeymoon registry also aids in budgeting the entire trip, helping couples mix what they can afford with the contributions of their wedding guests, who help them in creating these special memories. Couples can estimate how much they will spend on each step of the way throughout their honeymoon and prioritize together what they want to spend time on.


Wanderable is a new honeymoon registry, with no fees (payments are made through cash or PayPal) and a focus on beautiful design. Couples plan their honeymoon while looking at gorgeous photographs of all they could do. Sample registries are available for inspiration and items can be broken down into more manageable, smaller parts.


Engaged couples can personalize their registry with a photograph, personal notes to their guests, wedding details, and images of their choice for each item. Gift tracking is available to more easily write all their thank you notes.


Use invite code YESBRIDE to get an early look at this new honeymoon registry!
