D.L. and Co Candles for Spring/Summer 2017

May 12th, 2017 @ Amber

With Spring here and Summer soon on the way, I wanted to showcase a few candles from one of my favorite luxury candle brands, DL and Co. The brand creates really pretty candles that smell fantastic, and have gorgeous packaging! The unique containers themselves, along with the different candle sizes and the sleek and luxe packaging makes these candles feel special and sexy. I’m currently looking for a few daytime candles for the warmer months and a few sexy and sultry candles for those hot Summer nights. D.L. and Co has so many beautiful home fragrances in their collection, but I was drawn to their lovely bubble glass line, which features a geometric glassblown tumbler that looks similar to seaglass. Wild Lilac has notes of lilac, tulip, teakwood and vetiver, so it’s ideal for day or night, but the pretty packaging creates a floral scent that is ideal for the daytime so the glass can shine in the sunlight. The light purple glass is so petty, the geometric shape is interesting and fun, and the matching purple luxury gift box packaging makes this a lush candle and would make a great gift! Light it during the day while you do the laundry, or relax at the kitchen table and have lunch.

To illuminate your night once the sun goes down, try their popular Black Dahlia fragrance, with notes of jasmine, amber, black pepper and sandalwood for a sensual and deep fragrance that is dark and sexy. The candles comes in a lovely black gift box and features a scalloped glass tumbler in a bright purple color. Another from this collection is the Ruby Noir limited fragrance, which comes in a pretty almost metallic deep red glass tumbler with notes of citrus, vanilla orchid, cacao, coffee, floral and spice. It has a darker sexy scent to it, with just a hint of cocoa. It’s an interesting and unique scent! Light one of these in your boudoir to set the mood while you lounge around in your favorite Summertime lingerie sets or chemises. Shop the entire collection at D.L. and Co Candles.

Review: Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl

April 27th, 2017 @ Amber

I’ve been a fan of Mimi Holliday for awhile now, but I usually considered them a brand for core sizes and not full bust. I had recently seen a few super cute styles from the luxury brand that happened to come in F+ cups and I was so excited to try the brand as a full set. Though I have a few pairs of Mimi Holliday knickers, this would be my first matching set. I was smitten with the sweet minty green and pink of the Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl set, made of embroidered cups, eyelash lace, and sweet pink trim with a little bow at the center gore. So pretty! The matching brief features a sheer panel, embroidery at the gusset and lace at the hips as well as matching pink trim and bow. I love when a set is both really pretty and sexy at the same time and Tilt a Whirl definitely seems to fit the bill. I was unsure of sizing, I had read that the brand ran small, or that the brand ran big, so I ended up choosing a great band size but a cup size too small, so the bra fit isn’t perfect on me, but I love the shape and lift so I’m going to keep it and just remember to size up next time! The band is true to sure, but I would definitely say the cups run small. This design maxes out at a G cup, so if this happens, you could size down in the band or even up in the band if you needed extra room in the cup and don’t mind adjusting the back band. The knickers are super cute, they seem to fit true to size if not just a bit snug. I really like the eyelash lace on the cups, the embroidered lace, and the semi-sheer unlined cups. The colorway is lovely, in a sweet candy coated seafoam green and bright pink silk trim.

The straps are adjustable and comfortable. You can see that the bra is snug on me in the cups by at least a cup size, but I still think this bra is so darn cute! It’s really comfortable too, and I like the amount of lift and support it provides while still being dainty with the eyelash lace trim. This paneled cup offers a nice shape and would look even nicer in one size bigger. I had thought of exchanging the size, but honestly I want to wear this immediately and don’t think I could wait to return this back to the UK and await a new size. This set definitely has me interested in trying more Mimi Holliday bras in the future! I can’t wait to try some of their other styles that are available in larger cup sizes. I love that the designs still look fashionable and fun like we see in more core designs, but are available in some fuller bust sizes as well without making me feel like I’m wearing a full bust constructed bra. I’ll be lounging around in this set this for Spring and Summer! You can find the Mimi Holliday Tilt a Whirl collection as well as the Comfort Bra and matching Knicker that I have in this post at Mimi Holliday.

Empreinte Pompadour for SS17

April 27th, 2017 @ Amber

Fairy cotton candy sugar floss princess. That is the best way for me to describe this absolutely sweet set from luxury French brand Empreinte. For the new SS17 season, the brand has released their popular Pompadour set in a lovely sugar plum purple color, and it’s so pretty. It reminds me of a fairytale candy castle with bows, deliciously beautiful embroidery, various shades of purple and delicate lace. Gorgeous! I have the Pompadour in the soft pink color, but this light purple colorway is so pretty and perfect for Spring/Summer so I am totally gushing over this set right now. I had been getting really bored with “pretty” lingerie lately and have been craving sexier stuff, but this set, while truly beautiful, has a romantic sex appeal too. I love the feeling of being covered in intricate embroidery and lace, and this set fulfills that and so much more.

Look at that detail! Isn’t it just beyond? I am loving this set in this colorway. Unlined cups that lift and support, without too much projections. Empreinte always seems to fit like a minimizer on me and doesn’t give me a very round shape, but more of a natural shape that conforms to my breasts. The band is firm but not uncomfortable, the brand uses a firmer band to offer an ideal lift and support and allowing for a great fit and delicate silhouette. So damn sweet. I love the fluffy bow at the center gore, and the cups fit true to Empreinte sizing, which to me seems wider but deeper in the cup and is probably ideal for full on the bottom breasts, but works fine with my full on top bust. The matching brief completes the sweet set with gorgeous embroidery that is like a mini work of art. I find that their knickers fit true to size if not a bit generous. Empreinte has so many beautiful sets this season and this one is the cherry on the fluffy sweet slice of cake! You can find the new purple Empreinte Pompadour Myosotis colorway at Glamuse.

Xenses Luxury Lingerie Boutique and Loveday London Candle and Lingerie Review

April 27th, 2017 @ Amber

I’ve been having a torrid love affair with the luxury brand Loveday London. Why torrid? Because I love the brand, but they don’t make bras in my size, or any size really, they go by a S-M-L sizing system so it’s not possible for me to have a matching set. I love matchy matchy sets of lingerie, so while I really like their stuff, the knickers sit lonely without a matching companion to complete it. I was also really interested in their in-house branded candles, which are really pretty and come packaged in a lovely ribbon pull box that is nice quality and can be re-used for storage or as a trinket box. The candle itself is made of vegetable wax and comes in a quality red glass tumbler with a gold and black boudoir style logo sticker on the front. The candle comes in a variety of scents all with names like Seduction, which smells of rich and heady jasmine petals. It’s sexy and alluring without being perfumey. So pretty! Xenses Luxury Lingerie Boutique is one of the only shops online where you can find Loveday London’s candles, and I was excited to finally be able to try one. Xenses is based in the Netherlands but they offer fast, prompt and secure shipping to the US and my package arrived packed nicely. Xenses is a beautiful luxury lingerie boutique that ships worldwide, and offers luxe brands such as Amoralle, Fraulien Kink and more. They also carry pleasure objects and adult toys from luxury brands like Crave and Shiri Zinn. You can fulfill all of your bedroom and boudoir needs with Xenses. I was also really impressed with their selection of Loveday London lingerie, they carry a variety of their styles including last season’s styles at reduced prices.

They had the Leandra brief, which I had been so curious about in a previous season from Loveday London. The collection isn’t available anymore, but was made of red lace, mesh and leather. The sizing is different than other briefs I’ve tried from the brand, which had the sizing slider at the hips. So I would say that these run on the small side. I usually wear a XS/S bottoms, but these are a Medium that fit more like a snug small. They are so gorgeous though! That beautiful red leather is soft and supple, the red lace is so pretty, and the red mesh offers a sheer peek.

The gusset of the panties are very small and thin, even thinner than the photos show, but I feel like this brand definitely caters to small sized women, so keep that in mind when shopping your size. I would say the brand definitely runs small/petite. They are beautiful truly, truly a gorgeous piece of lingerie. That red leather is entrancing, the red lace so sensual, and the red mesh soft and curve hugging.

I really like the lace detail on the back of the panty too. The little window of lace is so succulent! You can shop the entire range of lingerie and candles and adult toys at Xenses. They really offer a wonderful luxury shopping experience and carry excellent brands that are luxurious, sensual and delicious.
