Toys: Vanity by @JopenLLC

I’d missed the FedEx guy once, but finally a knock at my door, and the unmarked box was delivered. After tearing the box open, I was greeted by my Vanity by Jopen Vr6.5 (retail: $148.99) luxury “intimate accessory.”

The sleek, purple toy came with a black satin pouch so that it could be neatly and discretely packed away when not in use. I could tell some thought had gone into the design. As you can see, it looks like it is made specifically with a woman’s body in mind.

Turns out that Jopen, founded by sexual wellness pioneer, Susan Colvin, has an all-woman product development team. So all of Jopen’s pleasure products have the features and functions that women want.

Here’s what makes Vanity by Jopen’s toys so great:

  • Premium silicone that maintains body heat. It’s also unscented (no gross rubbery smell), non-porous, durable and hypo-allergenic
  • Intense incremental speed control (more on that later) with independent dual motors
  • Whisper quiet
  • Security travel lock
  • 100% waterproof
  • Easy to clean
  • And best of all, designed for women by women

So, what did I think?

The Vr6.5 was everything it promised to be. But, you’ll have to see for yourself. 




Off Duty with @NapoleonPerdis

During the summer, my go-to foundation has been this very sheer moisturizer from Napoleon Perdis.

Named Off Duty – this tinted moisturizer is just perfect and fitting for my summer. I have been really taking it easy, travelling and enjoying m new apartment in Brooklyn and living life.  I have been wearing the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse for the last 5 years but I have switched. The coverage is sheer and beautiful and I can’t ask for more from this triple threat.

The coverage is sheer but radiant and beautiful. I am sooooo happy I am using this!

When I wear this, Tai says, my oh my, your make up looks good. And he says, throw everything else away and just use this one!  He said when you run out I’ll buy you more. Now isn’t that a nice boyfriend 🙂

$42.00NAPOLEON SAYS: “Cheat a natural glow with this triple-duty tinted moisturizer.”

Introducing our lightest, some might say loveliest, makeup base yet.

Off Duty Tinted Moisturizer gives a hint of colour for those days when you don’t want to wear foundation. Three skin-flattering hues combine to release a lightweight skin tint for a low-key, natural look.

The hydrating formula gives the skin a shot of radiance and a moisture boost thanks to Encapsulated Glacier Water, Ginkgo Biloba, Ginseng, and Green Tea Extracts, Glycerin and Chamomile.

Off Duty Tinted Moisturizer can also be worn as a hydrating pre-foundation base to prime and slightly tint the skin while helping your foundation to last longer. Available in two shades, Light-Medium and Medium-Dark.
