Hot New Trends

Did you know the hot new trend is wet-look lingerie? Wet-look lingerie is designed out of a nylon/spandex blend that is meant to look wet when worn. One of the concerns raised by many customers is how to keep the fabric looking great, even after washing.

Our friends over at The Lingerie Journal have a great post about how to care for this hot lingerie trend using Eucalan. Why not use Wrapture for an intoxicating, sexy jasmine fragrance? Check it out!

  1. Have an apple picking party! Take a picnic lunch full of tasty nibbles and a few of your best friends and head to a local apple orchard to enjoy the crisp autumn weather, and fresh apples.
