Tis the season for mad panic, headaches, stress and over indulgence. Well, not if you shop at Lovehoney! We've been diving into boxes and rushing through rails to be able to advise you on the best buys this season. You may be coming close to finishing your Christmas shopping, but have you found that perfect outfit for New Years Eve?
You can either brave the hoards of argumentative shoppers on the High Street to battle over a cut-price bit of fluff that you'll settle for in a last minute panic or you can plan ahead with us. We've checked what our customers are rating and added plenty of new lines to make sure that as well as catering for your sex life this December, you can also make-over your night-out wardrobe too with our Top 10 Guide to Clubwear 2010.
If you like putting your own twist on things, why not get creative and adapt an outfit to make a killer DIY Halloween costume? We've got 5 suggestions for costumes that are great if you don't fancy being a sexy witch or vampire.
1. Roadkill Bunny
For the perfect rabbit-just-squashed-by-headlights look, we suggest the Fever Pin Up Bunny Jumpsuit in white, to really offset the blood-spatters. If you're feeling artistic, why not stencil some tyre marks up the front (or should that be back?) of the jumpsuit. Match with some shredded white stockings and accessorise with a little trickle of blood at the corner of the mouth.
2. Asylum Nurse and Patient
Will you kiss it better, or will you drive them insane with your sexy wiles? Match a Nurse Uniform with a crazy-eyed look and a lovely syringe to administer your medicine with. We particularly like the Sweet Streak Sexy Vinyl Nurse Costume, because those blood stains are such a pain to get out, right?
A great costume for a couple, get your other half into the Asylum Patient Straight Jacket and mask and send the jitters down your fellow partygoers.
3. Dead Riding Hood
We can't resist a pun, and while your Dead Riding Hood outfit might need a little explaining, it'll make everyone groan when they realise! For the look, white out your face with face paint (or talcum powder for the truly thrifty) and add skeleton-esque circles under your eyes with dark eyeshadow. Accessorise the sexy Leg Avenue Sweetheart Red Riding Hood Dress with a psychotic Woodcutter's axe for full effect.
4. Little Bo Creep
Little Bo Creep has lost her sheep… and they really really don't want to be found by this shepherdess. Add some spook to the Fever Bo Peep 4 Piece Costume with fake blood and some undead make up. Prepare to silence the lambs.
5. Crafty School Girls - Teenage Witch
It wouldn't be Halloween without a schoolgirl witch casting her spells and creating havoc. Out of all the schoolgirl costumes on Lovehoney, we reckon the Seven Til Midnight Skull School Girl fits the bill for a Halloween party. Looking most like the girls from The Craft, and with enough fabric not to frighten your mates, the skeletal details are spook-tastic.
Jennifer Love Hewitt has been championing it for months and now our favourite Only Way is Essex girls are on board and adding sparkle to ladies' nether regions all over Essex!
Vajazzling has long been a big hit in the US – and now it's adding sparkle to the UK in true Essex style. 'The Only Way is Essex' girls opted for a sexy scatter design, but you can find some more unusual Bollywood designs here at Lovehoney.
The Petit Bijoux Self Adheisive Vajazzling Body Jewellery set can be simply peeled off and pressed into place, adding a beautiful touch of glamour to your most intimate parts. Follow the Essex girls and add some glamour into EVERY aspect of your life!
Recently at Lovehoney, our minds have been turning to sexy lingerie and costumes - not difficult when Hella Rouge has been strutting round the office modelling the new Dreamgirl, Fever and Leg Avenue ranges for Sex Toys TV. We noticed we aren't the only ones with a whole stream of lingerie and costume reviews coming in. What better way to know if an outfit's going to work in the bedroom than by reading a real verdict from a real person? The seal of approval is surely: “Should come with a warning label! Beware: extremely ravishing!"
Lovehoney is pleased to introduce the new range of smoking-hot clubwear from Forplay this summer. Taking inspiration from their base in Hollywood, California, Forplay have been setting the standard for sexy costumes and fantasy lingerie for more than 20 years. With celebrity clients including Pamela Anderson, Tori Speilling, Lindsay Lohan, Traci Bingham, Carmen Electra and Tila Tequila, amongst others, you can source a little Hollywood magic by stepping out in one of their stylish and well designed outfits.
I've been going Hell for leather, lace, fishnet, chiffon, PVC and all mixes in between for the past month. Bonny has clearly been feeling the need for some new knickers as my product list has been filled to the brim with all things lingerie.
This season lace and sheer fabrics feature heavily in our new collections, opting for floaty-light styles and fabrics that will keep you cool as the action heats up. With new ranges from Roxana, Hustler, Dreamgirl, Seven Til Midnight, Music Legs, Sweet Streak and G World you'll be spoiled for choice when you check out our sexy lingerie section.
With so much choice in The Lovehoney lingerie section, there's something for every size, shape and colouring. Here are my top 10 for this summer - a comprehensive list of the sexy ensembles that your lingerie drawer shouldn't be without.
Us women do love to dress up, but after our reckless teenage years we abandon the absurdly tiny skirts and all-hanging-out tops that we championed during our first years of adulthood and seek a more refined and sultry look when out on the town. When Summer arrives, hems creep upward and the bust line plunges, making getting ready to head out much more fun and acceptingly raunchy. Flesh is key and the more you can flash without the trash, the better you feel about yourself.
We've taken this to heart at Lovehoney and that's why we're stocking more translatable garments than ever. If you're looking for a sexy ensemble that will rock the club as well as the bedroom, then take a look at our From Dusk Till Dawn recommendations without a vampire costume in sight.
As women, it is expected that we are just born with the innate knowledge of how to walk in high heels.
Well, I’ve got news for you sadistic shoe manufacturers; we ladies don’t come into the world with that skill.
In fact, the first time a woman dons a pair of sky-high stilettos she will inevitably twist her ankle in the first few minutes and then continue to walk like John Wayne.
With books, YouTube videos and magazine articles dedicated to the topic of walking in high heels, you’d think at least one of them would give you some genuine advice suitable for footwear virgins as well as the more experienced stiletto wearers… but it appears not.
Starting with kitten heels and progressing upwards to 6 inch stripper heels, we thought we’d give you honest advice from someone who used to live in skate trainers for 18 years but is now Lovehoney’s very own high heel evangelist!
Blogger, glamour puss, personal shopper, agony aunt - Ms. Diamonds is a woman of many talents and what she doesn’t know about saucy shopping, is not worth knowing at all!
With exciting new ranges of lingerie, costumes, shoes and accessories recently appearing at Lovehoney, we drafted in help from the lady herself to answer all your questions on everything from wobbling stilettos to naughty nurses.
I know my boyfriend has a naughty nurse fantasy but I feel silly dressing up! Is there anything that I could wear that is sexy but not too revealing?
