When we think of pleasures, we immediately think of: sex, consequently this brings with it genital excitement, erection, vaginal lubrication, orgasm. Some will also think of wines, chocolates, delicious foods, perhaps moments alone; however, one of the most pleasant parts in intimacy, shared or alone is the experience of touching and being touched everywhere. The simple fact of caressing ourselves, of pampering ourselves, of feeling ourselves, of feeling another person or feeling that another person touches us.
Allow our skin to speak; its texture, its smell, how soft or rough it can be in some places, how cold or warm it is, its sensitivity to certain diseases or how it bristles when touched, kissed, scratched, bitten and so many other ways of expressing ourselves. Our skin is our presentation card, our first dish, our bait.
I have always been a lover of body serum, oils and butters. I think they are sexy and stimulate my femininity, that feeling they leave on my skin makes me feel sexy and I love feeling that way. Giving myself those minutes to rub my skin with an oil after a shower or as a preamble to my sexual encounter… even if it is only with myself, is one of my favorite pleasures. I wish you would experience it and let me know what you think, create that sexy connection with yourself before…
One of the serums I have tried recently and which surprised me a lot, because its aroma is quite neutral, but the hydration and the velvety feeling on my skin has no way I can describe it in words; you must try it for yourself, and you can easily find it here: https://medamour.com/discount/Masquemusculos
It is the Sexy Serum by Java Skin Care. Not only is it made with wonderful ingredients, but it is also vegan, for all skin types, free of parabens, sulfates and gluten. within its ingredients we find organic coffee, rosemary and vitamin – it really is great.

As we shake off winter here in New England and look towards Spring..March is filled with the optimism of new beginnings.
Some of my favorite things about March are:
St Patrick’s Day in Newport Rhode Island- we have the best parade ever and it has been named 1 of the Top 5 parades in the USA. I have been attending this parade since I was a little girl and now I get to bring my girls. I’ll see you on Thames Street, March 16th Rain or Shine.
Spring Forward and set the clocks ahead…I know it can be tough the first few days after we switch the clocks but I do LOVE the extra daylight. The snow starts to melt and the crocuses start to peep out of the ground. I have to agree with the New York Times article..let’s just skip all the confusion and stop the switching of the clocks. What do you think?
Full Moon in March is also a very auspicious time. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this full moon reaches its peak on the same day as the Spring Equinox, which also occurs on Mar. 20. The last time these two events coincided this closely was back in the year 2000, and the last time they occurred on the same date was back in 1981. So take some time to look up in the sky and enjoy.
I am also super excited about our March Spot Light Product…JAVA Illuminating Eye Serum is packed with antioxidants to gently correct the delicate skin around the eyes. We’ve blended some of nature’s most beautiful oils together to restore skin’s elasticity, reduce the look of dark circles and wrinkles, prevent moisture loss and protect skin from free-radical damage.
We are offering a FREE 5ml sample of Eye Serum with every purchase on our website of $50.00 or more. No code needed it will be included in your order. And as always because it is our spotlight product the eye serum is on sale o=for 10% off. Check it out at www.javaskincare.com.
We would like to introduce you to Katie of Create.Play.Travel.
Katie Wallace is a Mom to 3 kiddos, wife and DIY enthusiast. She started Create. Play. Travel. as a creative outlet within busy family life.
Here is what Katie had to say about the JAVA Skin Care Wonderbar Coffee + Mint Soap.
If you’ve had any sort of skin irritation or sensitivity, you know the importance of using natural products. Anything that we put on our skin is quickly absorbed by our body. Each season has its own skin care challenges, such as winter dryness and summer sun exposure. These natural products and skin care tips can help your whole family live and feel healthier!
COFFEE INFUSED SKIN CARE
I absolutely love coffee, but I would have never thought to put it in my skin care! Coffee grounds are a natural exfoliate and the caffeine from coffee is a natural anti-inflammatory. I have tried several luxurious products from Java Skin Care. As expected, the deep coffee fragrance combined with the beneficial properties of Java provide rich benefits and smells amazing!
I had the chance to try the Java Skin Care Mint + Coffee Exfoliation Wonderbar made with organic ground coffee. I love this natural soap for a few reasons. First, the Wonderbar is made with ground roasted coffee which scrubs away dead skin cells. The potent mix of coffee serum and mint soothes and smooths the skin.
Also, the Wonderbar is generous in size and will last a long time if stored in a dry place.
Few things can comfort the soul quite like the smell of freshly bloomed coffee, except perhaps for the aroma freshly bloomed roses. Our sensuous Bloom Lip Duo marries these two exceptional scents to create a lip conditioning experience that will have you feeling like you are sipping your favorite coffee in a spring rose garden. This set smooths, plumps, and heals adding a light blush to your lips using only organic plant-based tint. As always this product uses only the highest quality ingredients, and our signature Smithsonian Certified Green Coffee. Gently exfoliate with our scrub to smooth, plump and prime your lips, then follow with our balm to heal, protect shine and tint.
The petals of the rose have been used in skincare for centuries because of their sweet smell and therapeutic benefits. This set includes a vial of crushed Organic Dried Rose Petals for you to add to a bath soak, face steam or other skincare DIY for a decadent skin-soothing experience.
This Gift Set comes boxed with a beautiful pink ribbon, as shown. $16.00
