viewBoxSlider_IAN I’ve tried a bunch of different adult subscription boxes over the past three years and Fantasy Box is still by far, the best one I’ve come across. (You can read my original review of Fantasy Box here.) Not only is their packaging gorgeous and well designed, their boxes are expertly curated and feature full size products & lingerie (gimme!) I also really like how they help guide you through your Fantasy Box experience through fun, sexy prompts that help encourage communication with your partner.

So, when I found out that Fantasy Box had created a exclusive, gift box in honour of Valentine’s Day for the show The View, naturally my curiosity was peaked. The View Platinum Spa Box features a collection of sweetly scented products, a gorgeous lingerie set, candles and other goodies to help transform your home into a romantic spa retreat. (watch the clip from The View here!) Thanks to the lovely people at Fantasy Box who kindly sent me my own View Box to enjoy, I’m excited to show you what’s inside.

IMG_0098 Created with a romantic evening in mind, The View Box is available in three different options based on the colour of lingerie that’s included: Sweetness (blue), Romance (red) and Decadence (black) Although my inner goth tends to gravitate towards black lingerie, I fell in love with the gorgeous periwinkle coloured negligee featured in the “Sweetness” option. It’s super pretty. How could I not?!

In true Fantasy Box style, when you open your box you’ll be greeted by a set of glossy, instruction cards that are designed to help guide you through your spa fantasy.

Review | The Lelo Ina Wave: My New Favourite Sex Toy

February 18, 2015

A few days before Valentine’s Day, my younger man-friend and I decided to call the romantic portion of our relationship quits. It’s all good though – he’s a lovely human being, but we both realized that we make better friends than anything else. So, with no big plans for Valentine’s Day I decided to treat myself to a weekend in Vancouver. After […]

February 13, 2015

When It Feels Good in Your Pants, But Bad in Your Heart

February 4, 2015

December 2014 will be forever etched in my mind as my “lost month.” During the first week of January I sat down with a friend of mine and told him, “I think I’ve reached my 2015 quota for dysfunctional relationships.” “Um, Simone, it’s like January 6th.” “My point exactly.” Although lots of good things happened in December, for the most part the […]

The Vesper Necklace from Crave combines both of these loves into […]

But, There’s Just This One Thing

January 22, 2015

I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine recently about dating in your 30′s. When she asked me about my dating life, I told her, “I feel like dating in your 30′s involves rejecting a lot of good people. I’m rejecting kind, smart, handsome men for the sole reason that I just know that they’re not right for me […]

Two New Lingerie Looks for 2015

January 15, 2015

Over the past year, I’ve found that Overstock.com is a great place to find everything from chic accessories to items for the home. I’m still swooning over the black and white chevron pillows I picked up from them for my bedroom revamp. However, it wasn’t until super recently that I discovered they actually have a decent selection of lingerie. Who knew, right? […]

A Year of Lust, Life Lessons & Labours of Love

January 14, 2015

At the beginning of 2014, I decided that my theme for the year would be “GO ALL IN”: with my work, but also with my heart. My intention was to live life without holding myself back or sitting on the sidelines. I think I definitely lived up to this theme because 2014 was a year full of lots of hard work, romantic […]
