Back in November, you may remember us asking for your votes in the UK Lingerie Awards. We were nominated as the country's Favourite Lingerie Retailer, but we needed the votes of our loyal Lovehonians to win.
And, guess what? WE WON!
Thanks to you guys, we beat off stiff competition (phrasing) from the likes of Debenhams, Agent Provocateur, and Victoria's Secret to come out top as the most popular seller of sexy smalls in the country. Not too shabby.
You'll also be pleased to hear that, as massive as 2015 was, 2016 is going to be even bigger, with lots of ultra-exciting new products coming up to keep you lovely people looking fabulous in (and out) of the bedroom.
So a HUGE, 'Thank you' to every one of you who voted - we quite literally couldn't have done it without you.
As you can probably imagine, working for an online sex toy retailer (and the biggest in the UK, I might add) comes with some pretty interesting job responsibilities.
Between practicing orgasm faces with colleagues, deciding whether something is actually NSFW for other workplaces and writing 'To Do' lists that would make even Masters & Johnson blush, we still have a little time left for other fun (totally work related) things.
You may have noticed that Bondage Boutique has recently undergone a makeover and is now speckled with lots of lovely new images and a pair of brand spanking new models - literally!
Most of the the time, when you see photos of bondage gear it's a shot of the product on its own, which can make it hard to visualise the kit actually being used.
Alternatively, when bondage product images involve a model, they very often end up super pornographic. *Sigh*
So we were given the challenge to re-shoot our top-selling Bondage Boutique products on models without making it look like Lovehoney were branching out into 'adult DVDs', and with nothing to go on except our own (brilliant!) ideas.
The shoot lasted 3 days and, as Lovehoney's resident bondage expert, I was on hand to make sure each product was photographed in its best light, accurately, and that the models felt comfortable and safe.
To give you a little insight into my job and the general goings on at LHHQ, I've compiled some of my favourite behind the scenes outtakes for you to enjoy...

Are you ready for more? A smouldering still of Jamie Dornan trying on a black satin mask has just been released, which can only mean one thing - dates for Fifty Shades Darker AND Fifty Shades Freed have been announced, and we can barely contain our excitement...
The movie still depicts a scene from the iconic Fifty Shades Darker masquerade ball, and it looks every bit as sexy as we'd imagined.
Universal Pictures have confirmed that Fifty Shades Darker will be released on 10th February 2017, followed swiftly by Fifty Shades Freed on 9th February 2018.
We're excited to learn that Niall Leonard, E L James' husband is writing up the screenplay, whilst Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are expected to return to their roles as Anastasia and Christian.
Filming is due to start early next year - so watch this space for more sexy stills and news.
Ever wondered how many cock rings it takes to encircle the base of the Eiffel Tower or how many water-coolers full of lube Lovehoney customers use each year? Us too. That's why we found out and compiled 5 of our most interesting sex toy stats to share with you in the below video. We hope you find it as fascinating as we do.
Want to learn more cool facts about sex toys? Check out Down the Rabbit Hole: It's the largest study of sex toy sales ever (over 1 million) and it happened when we invited self-styled Ideas Detective Jon Millward to analyse the sales data of the largest online sex toy retailer in the UK (that's us!)
Read on to see all the toys used to make this video:
The Telegraph has done us a favour by rounding up the first batch of Fifty Shades of Grey movie reviews. The Telegraph's own reviewer Tim Robey described the film as "electric".
Variety magazine described the film as a sly tragicomedy of manners - "Jane Austen with a riding crop".
Lovely employer that it is, Lovehoney has booked a screen at the Odeon in Bath for a free screening for all employees and their partners. Whips, crops and nipple clamps are not being provided (but are available with a generous staff discount!)
Lovehoney co-founders Neal Slateford and Richard Longhurst found out what it's like to be in the full glare of the Fifty Shades of Grey spotlight at the movie premiere last night.
Lovehoney's Product Director Bonny Hall and Logistics Manager Joy Hall were also invited to the movie's premiere at Leicester Square in the heart of London's glittering West End.
More than 3,000 fans screamed as the Lovehoney team and the film's stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author E L James walked down the grey carpet.
The Lovehoney team were invited to the after-party as guests of E L James. Bonny found time to have a chat about what it's like to play in the Red Room with Jamie Dornan... and (bizarrely) sniff his beard.
Lovehoney recently launched The Official Red Room Collection, a range of 10 high-quality leather bondage items inspired by scenes from the film. Products that feature prominently in the film include a leather flogger and riding crop as Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey introduces Dakota Johnson's Anastasia Steele to the pleasures of the Red Room.
Valentine's Day is nearly upon us (tick, tock, tick, tock), but it's never too late to show someone that you love and care for them.
Although there are only a few days left until the most romantic day of the year, you can still get your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife or lover a sexy and seductive gift that arrives just in time.
For those of you who can't quite cope with the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey is only a few days away, then "holy cow" have we got some good news for you!
The makers of Fifty Shades of Grey have announced that both of the Fifty Shades book sequels written by E L James (Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) will be made into films - all one hundred and fifty shades of the stuff!
We could be seeing the second installment as soon as February 2016. Still breathing?
It is yet-to-be confirmed by Universal Studios but director Sam Taylor-Johnson said it's happening, so that's good enough for us.
The first film hasn't even been released yet and it is already the fastest-selling R-rated (that's Certificate 18 to us Brits) movie ever according to US ticket-seller Fandango.
