Product Review: Treasure Trove Gift Tin by Kama Sutra

September 19th, 2009 Comments off

TreasureTroveGiftTinI’ve been lusting over the Treasure Trove Gift Tin since I started working at The Earth Shop, a (now out of business) chain of green stores that plagued the malls up here.  I loved that store.

We were required to give demonstrations of any products that came with testers.  And I was probably the only employee that would demonstrate the Oil of Love.  Of course, the only reason I wanted to demonstrate it was so I could taste it again.  I’ve tried every flavor of the Oil of Love except the tangerine.  I can’t wait to get that one.

All of the products in this gift tin are edible except the feather.  Although, I suppose, if you really wanted to, you could eat the feather.  I doubt it’ll be very tasty, though.

On of the products in this tin is Honey Dust to dust on the skin with the brown and black feather applicator.  It adds a light aroma and sweet flavor to your skin.

Another is the Stimulating Pleasure Balm, which is meant to tease you and your lover’s intimate bits with a gentle tingle.

And, of course, the Oil of Love, which heats with friction and is, by far, my favorite of the bunch.

One of our best purchases yet. 

Product Review: Babeland Toy Cleaner by Babeland Toys

September 19th, 2009 2 comments

IMG_0723I’ve never owned a cleaner made specifically for sex toys before.  I never really saw the point.  We don’t have anyone currently sharing our toys, so soap and water works just as well.  Right? And it’s ten steps from anywhere in my apartment to a sink.

Then Babeland Toys offered me Babeland Toy Cleaner for review.  Why not? It certainly can’t hurt to use a product meant for toy washing on my toys, can it?  I’ll take it.

As you can see from the picture, the bottle I received looks different from the bottle on their site.  The bottle I received is made of clear recyclable plastic with a sort of matte silver spray top.  It’s simple, yet elegant.  I love it.

It came with this nifty little plastic U-shaped thing to keep the spray lid from getting squished during shipping and I decided to keep mine.  I am the queen of dropping things or stuffing something in a drawer and wasting so much of the product.  Read more…

Everyday Tricks a Woman Should Know

Found here.

Peel a banana from the bottom and you won’t have to pick the little ‘stringy things’ off of it. That’s how the primates do it.

Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store.  If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.

Store your opened chunks of cheese in aluminum foil.  It will stay fresh much longer and not mold!

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.  Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef.  It will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking.

To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in beat them up.

For a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed. Melt Andes mints in a double broiler and pour over warm brownies. Let set for a wonderful minty frosting.

Leftover snickers bars from Halloween make a delicious dessert. Simply chop them up with the food chopper.  Peel, core and slice a few apples. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle the chopped candy bars over the apples. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla ice cream. Yummm!

Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip lock bag. Seal, mash till they are all broken up. Add remainder of ingredients, reseal, keep mashing it up mixing thoroughly, cut the tip of the baggy, squeeze mixture into egg. Just throw bag away when done.  Easy clean up.  Read more…

Editor’s Pick

  • G-Twist by Shanna Germain
  • The battery housing is slightly confusing — you have to press the sides in really hard in order to open it (I struggled with it for so long, I thought about asking my neighbor for help, but since I’ve not said anything more to him than “hello” and “oh, it’s really okay that your dog barked all night long, no worries,” I figured that showing up at his doorstep with a pseudo-cock, a couple of batteries and a helpless look wasn’t the world’s best idea).

    Editor’s Note: While there have been a lot of G-Twist reviews lately from all the new GoodVibes Brand Ambassadors I think this one far surpasses the others (including my own). Not to say the others are bad, perish the thought, but just because this one actually made me smile at times and even chuckle at others.

On to the reviews…  Read more…
