As Lovehoney's only Irish staff member, I'm obviously very excited that today is Saint Patrick's Day.
Paddy's Day is all about letting your hair down and having some fun, whether it's at a parade, in a pub, or even a ceili in honour of everyone's favourite medieval Welshman.
If that isn't your idea of fun, however, why not celebrate March 17th the Lovehoney way?
Fellas, forget a pint of Guinness at your local and indulge in a can of O'Doyle Irish Stout instead. And for the ladies, Lelo's bestselling luxury rabbit vibe, the Ina 2 is available in a beautiful light green.
To help you celebrate St. Patrick's Day, we're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a luxury Lelo Ina Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator (worth £144.99)!

Toy With Me Tuesday is a sex toy meme that Ness, a sex blogger, started when she realised that there were a lot of creative ways to take another look at the sex toys in our homes.
We usually enter a photo every week, but we're taking a mini post-Valentine's break and have instead rounded up some of our favourite snaps of sex toys in a foodie setting. Some are from our own archive, while others are by talented sex bloggers and toy companies, and we use them by kind permission.
Which is your favourite? Have you taken a photo of a sex toy in the kitchen? Have you got any ideas for toys that would look good in a kitchen setting? Feel free to comment!
As the cold weather continues in the UK this week, many people have started planning holidays to banish those February blues.
If you're lucky enough to go on holiday with your partner this year, be prepared to return home with more than just a tan - a new survey reveals that 28% of couples think their sex life improved after taking a holiday together.
Going abroad doesn't mean you have to sacrifice home comforts. Even sex toys are getting more travel-friendly. The Lovehoney Flash USB Mini Vibrator, released just last week, is ideal for travel. Rechargeable by USB, completely discreet and detachable, there's no chance of this powerful toy starting to vibrate in your luggage.
To celebrate the release of the Lovehoney Flash USB Mini Vibrator (worth £29.99), we're giving a lucky reader the chance to win one! Simply comment below before Friday the 22nd for your chance to win.

There's a reason why Valentine's Day is the second most widely celebrated holiday in the world - every once and awhile, it's nice to indulge our romantic side with flowers, chocolate...and sex!
February 14th is the perfect day to show your partner how much you love them. Whether it's a nice meal, seductive lingerie, a dozen roses or a couples sex toy, there's just something about treating your lover that inspires passion.
Being single on St. Valentine's Day doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun, either - there are plenty of sex toys designed for solo pleasure.
To celebrate this romantic time of year, we're giving away a bumper Valentine's bundle to one lucky winner.
Prize includes a TENGA Flip Hole (£63.99), a Lelo Mia 2 (£69.99) and a pair of Luxury Sex Dice. Comment below before Tuesday, Februray 12th for a chance to win.
Read on for the best tips from across the web to guarantee the best Valentine's Day ever.
Drumroll, please... after years of being asked for them, we can finally offer you Lovehoney.co.uk Gift Vouchers to send to a loved one.
You can purchase a voucher worth anything from £10 to £500, and have it delivered instantly by email to the lucky recipient.
Everything is previewable, so you can fiddle with how the gift voucher would look without even having to enter the checkout.
Go on, have a play!
Lovehoney.co.uk gift vouchers can be spent on anything available on Lovehoney.co.uk (but not on more gift vouchers, because that would just be madness.
And might break the internet.)
They're as flexible as using cash: you can spend all your voucher, more than your voucher (and make up the difference), less than your voucher (without losing the difference), or even more than one voucher at once. Oh, and they don't have an expiry date either.
Got a question? Check out our Lovehoney Gift Vouchers Help page, or add your question in a comment and we'll do our best to answer them!
OK, OK, if you're a regular reader of the Lovehoney blog the above shot might seem like a 'cheat', but we're so excited about the new Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator (which launched only yesterday) that we just had to feature it as our Toy with me Tuesday this week!
The future of sex toys is here, and it's charging in a Starbucks near you!
Introducing the brand new Lovehoney Flash USB Rechargeable Mini Vibrator £29.99. Sleek, petite and discreet, this powerful mini vibrator is whisper-quiet and looks uncannily like a memory stick, making it arguably the most discreet pleasure product on the market.
Unlike many other USB chargeable vibrators, the intimate stimulating tip of the Flash is removed during charging and can be kept somewhere clean and safe whilst the motor is charged via a computer or USB mains charger in a much less 'obvious' charging method.
Take a look at a Flash we plugged into a Lovehoney Mac earlier today (pictured, left). Now imagine it's plugged into a commuter's laptop as they take the crowded morning train to work, or as they complete a report in a busy cafe. Would you have any idea that this tiny black rectangle holds within its powerful motor three hours' worth of intense orgasm potential?
Neither would we!
