CRAVE

“I believe that sensual products should be as desirable as the act itself,” says Ti Chang, Co-Founder and CPO (Chief Pleasure Officer) at Crave. Crave is a luxury lifestyle brand that believes intimacy should be sophisticated and classy. Made in San Francisco, the good-kind kinky company combines thoughtful design with the highest quality materials and manufacturing practices to create modern products that will undoubtedly enliven sensuality and enhance intimacy.

In a world where high-tech and luxury design seem to touch every corner of our lives, the most intimate experiences should be no exception. The dominating culture in adult products can often feel cheap and sleazy, when pleasuring yourself should only feel oh-so-good.

Spirited Collaborations

Last week, we at Joonbug attended the Macallan Masters of Photography Series launch event at the Bowery Hotel that debuted the drams latest venture into collaborative territory. That's right, the beloved whisky teamed up with photographer extroidinaire, Annie Leibovitz to launch a pricey, new bottle and promotional pictorals that featured Grey's Anatomy star, Kevin McKidd. The starry soiree brought much-a-buzz to Macallan paving way for more spirited collaborations?

We guess so, since receiving word that the next venture to launch is between, Patron Spirits and world-renowned fashion designer, John Varvatos. The first-ever artist to collaborate on a new design element of the Patron bottle, to craft a limited edition bottle stopper exclusively for Patron Anejo tequila.

BLIND FATE
Two Bachelor Break-Ups & a Birth

First came controversial couple, Ben Flajnik and model, Courtney Robertson. It wasn't much surprise to fans since there was a lot of speculation while their season of Bachelor was filming. Though, we still had hope and Robertson admits, they did too, that their love was real but just didn't work. And, to Flanjik's surprise, photos of Robertson canoodling with Emily Maynard's season cast-off, Arie Luyendyk appeared on the net just days later.

Regardless, their courtship did suprisingly last longer than single mom, Emily Maynard's and entrepreneur, Jef Holm. There's no doubt that America was rooting for these two but alas rumors of the Bachelor sweetheart's supposed infedality no doubt put a spoil to their seemingly authentic love.

LIFESTYLE

Beauty 101 and Beyond

Here it is, I’m exposing my best kept secret. I’m girly in every sense of the word with exception of the fact that I can’t apply make-up for the life of me (err, and I have a slight case of potty mouth). But, for real, my morning make-up routine takes about 10-minutes tops; a generous gob of SPF moisturizer, my cant-live-with-out Laura Mercier tinted foundation, my good ole MAC studio fix NC-40, Nars orgasm blush and the real inexperienced make-up artist part of the ritual, eye shadow application via index finger before finishing off my look with Dior mascara.

Work, eat, sleep, repeat, repeat, REPEAT. There ya go.
