Every Good Valentine’s Day Ends In The Bedroom

"Every Good Valentine's Day Should End In The Bedroom" - Dana B. Myers, Founder of Booty Parlor

“Every Good Valentine’s Day Should End In The Bedroom” – Dana B. Myers, Founder of Booty Parlor

Valentines Day is around the corner. Think champagne, roses, chocolate, a romantic dinner. But let’s be real, where does every hot Valentine’s Day wind up at end of the night? In the bedroom, of course!

But clutter, dirty laundry, electronics and kids’ toys can really put the kibosh on a sexy environment – and stop you before your knickers even hit the floor!

So this Valentine’s Day, clean it up and make room for Cupid!  Here are 4 quick tips to transform your bedroom into a romance-ready boudoir.

1.) Make your space work, clutter, and kid free. Jettison any traces of work; they’re a reminder of your To Do list, and of a stressful week ahead. Also, hide your laptops and ipads, unless you plan on watching something sexy on them! Clear out family photos with anyone who shouldn’t be watching you have sex — send your mother-in-law to the den. Kids toys are a reminder that you’re a great parent, but not a sexy mama!  Stow them in their proper place. It’s all a distraction from putting your Mojo first.

2.) Use light to flatter and seduce. Great soft lighting creates intimacy and warmth. Be sure you can adjust your lamps and overhead fixtures with dimmers or different settings. Chandeliers dripping in crystals are always sexy. Warm light from candles and light-filtering lampshades or amber-tinted sconce covers add enchantment. Even stringing up some delicate twinkly lights can add romance and fantasy.

3.) Set a sultry mood with fragrance. Scent can be such a turn-on in your bedroom. It will transport you away from your workday and into your own personal fantasy. Light candles and burn oils – think vanilla, musk, sandalwood, even a hint of cinnamon, or something with a subtle combination of sweet and spicy. For a fun, frisky treat, try Booty Parlor’s “Don’t Stop Massage Candle”. Massage is a great for slowing down, reconnecting with your lover, relieving stress, and stimulating the senses, instead of rushing into intercourse.

4.) Up the foreplay! Once your bedroom has successfully been transformed, go ahead and take the foreplay challenge.  No woman likes it when her lover goes straight for the bull’s-eye, right? So encourage a slow warm-up. Gently glide your lover’s hand on the outside of your jeans first, then let your partner continue over your panties. Eventually, slide his hands underneath them. At this point, you’ll be getting warm and lusting for his touch on your bare skin.

See? You’re probably feeling sexier and more inspired already. Now, go clean up your room, V-Day is almost here!

XOXO,Dana

Mojo On My Mind

Danababy240frw
Hey BP Babes!

As I’m writing to you, I’m bouncing my newborn in a baby lounger with my right foot and clutching a super-strong cup of coffee with my left hand, all while I contemplate the new phase my life has just entered.

Yes, I’ve now added “parent-of-two” to the long list of roles I play – entrepreneur, wife, author, mama, friend, daughter, do-er and dreamer. Charlie and I delivered a beautiful baby girl just two weeks ago, and boy, has it been an eventful two weeks. We introduced her to our toddler and began to help him adjust, we had a house full of visitors, I transitioned from sleeping all night to sleeping in short bursts, and of course, I went from being in the mix at BP Headquarters to being in full-charge at the Homefront HQ.  All at once, it’s been beautiful, hazy, precious and chaotic.

Pretty quickly, my body is returning to its pre-pregnancy state. I can see my feet again, and hey, let’s be honest, I can see my everything again! It feels good to get my body back, to start to feel like myself again, to be able to move and stretch without a watermelon being in the way. My hormones are finding equilibrium and the fortress of pregnancy pillows in between the hubby and I has officially been removed. Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s only been 2 weeks. This mama’s Mojo isn’t flying at full speed again. But, I do have Mojo on my mind. I can feel my inner spark reigniting and a driving desire firing up.  I may be packin’ a breast-pump in my purse, but on the flip side, I’m making sure to enjoy this relatively short window of having uber-gorgeous, amped-up “girls.” Unbelievably full nursing cleavage does wonders for my Mojo (and of course, provides my babe with good nutrition!). I’m making an effort to wear my summer wedges and Kissaholic Lip Stain and wash & fluff my ‘fro. My swagger is on its way back and I like it.

As you know, I believe that sex, sexiness and “Mojo’ are just as important as eating, drinking and working out. When I say “Mojo,” what I’m referring to is your feminine sexual spark. It’s your glow that comes from within, your lust for life, love and sex, and all the juicy possibilities that live therein.  Mojo is more than just confidence – it’s sexy self-confidence, your ability to know, embrace and love your body; to know what turns you on and satisfies you, and to then be able to communicate it. And yet, more often than not, so many of us are willing to set our “sexy” aside, dismiss its importance, or simply let it drift to the back burner of our busy lives – especially when we’re going through major life changes like a pregnancy or new-baby, a break-up or divorce, or just under the pressures of juggling a busy professional & home life.

Granted, it’s part of my job to keep my Mojo alive, which may be why I’m getting it moving so quickly after having a baby. But it’s not just because I have to, it’s because I want to. When I rub my still-swollen tummy with body butter, I’m reminded of and reconnected to my power as a woman.  When I take 5 to plumpify my pucker and swipe on some mascara, I feel like a more pulled-together version of me. I’m simply giving my inner vixen the permission to show up each day– even if I’m overtired from midnight feedings and the toddler/newborn juggling act. My little moments of sexy self-care are my daily confidence-boosting practice. And I truly believe that that confidence is my sexiest asset.

Cultivating a true, honest and unique sexy self-confidence makes you feel lit up inside. When you’re nurturing your Mojo, you’ll find your whole world begins to change in a sexier, more enchanted way. When you consciously love your own body, you’re way more enthusiastic to share it with your partner. And on top of all that, when you’re practicing self-love and the pursuit of satisfaction – all of your life’s other endeavors benefit. I know that when I’m paying my Mojo its due attention, I’m a better mama, a much better wife, and a happier, more creative woman, all-around.

So, no matter what’s going on in your life right now, I wanted to check in and remind you just how important, special, meaningful and magical your Mojo can be to you. Go swipe on some gloss and blow yourself a kiss. Or grab your lover and kiss them. Or put on your favorite skirt and flirt with a stranger on the sidewalk. I’ll be right out there with you. But right now? The baby’s down, so I’m gonna go take a nap ;)

Holiday Gift Guide #1 – Gift Yourself

Dana MyersIt’s December, and it’s my favorite month, for so many reasons. I bundle up in chunky scarves and drink hot cocoa like it’s nectar of the Gods. I smile & get teary-eyed listening to X-Mas music on the radio (I mean, Do they know it’s Christmastime at home?). I get to fire up the Chanukah candles and have a cozy Christmas all within the span of a few weeks. Kisses, wishes and champagne close out the month as we welcome the New Year, and all the new possibilities it holds.  Oh, and one other thing. December is my BIRTHDAY MONTH!!

Now, I know this is the season of giving to others, but I do a considerable amount of gifting myself around this time of year.  I can’t ignore the fact that’s it’s my birthday just because it’s X-Mas, right? I try not to go overboard, but I do treat myself to some prezzies to ceIebrate the end of one year and the onset of another in my life — older, wiser, happier, sexier and more fabulous.

So, in honor of my “gift yourself” tradition, this first gift guide is all about YOU. These are the little Booty Parlor treats I recommend to brighten your sexy self-confidence and help you shine during the season. And I know if you love ‘em, your best girlfriends will be just as thrilled when they unwrap theirs.

Here’s my Top 5 Gifts to Give Yourself (and your Best Friends~)

Naughty Bubbles Bubble Bath ($22) Sometimes the only place a girl can go to escape the hustle & bustle of the season is the bath tub. Do. Not. Disturb. Right? The black tuberose scent will blow your mind, and the luscious bubbles will float you away to a very happy place.

Don’t Stop Massage Candle ($32): If you love candles, and you love massages, and you love the idea of experiencing the classic “hot wax” fantasy without any actual pain, this is the gift for you. The wax melts into a warm, nourishing massage oil that you can drizzle onto skin – lighting up your senses and giving you a foreplay story to write about in your diary.

The Official Booty Parlor Mojo Makeover: 4 Weeks to a Sexier You ($14.99)  I truly believe this is the gift that keeps on giving.  The Mojo Makeover experience will change the way you feel about yourself and infuse your daily life with a massive dose of SEXINESS! Give one to your bestie and support one another through the process. You’ll boost your sexy self-confidence and discover what’s uniquely sexy about each of YOU. It’s the perfect way to end the year and ring in the new one…

Mojo Makeover 185x185 

Flirty Little Favorites ($36) Let the power-pampering begin! This trio of seductive beauty boosters is designed to trigger instant sexiness and inspire fearless flirtation. Sounds about right for all those upcoming holiday parties, yes?! All three products — the Perfume Oil, Pink Caviar Sugar Scrub, and Body Butter — are formulated with our proprietary pheromone blend to inspire body-to-body chemistry and get you all the attention. Plus, this one’s pretty in it’s giftable box, even your mother will love this as a gift (she wants to be sexy too, you know!)

BP FlirtyLittleFavorites

Kissaholic Aphrodisiac Plumping Lip Gloss ($16)  Position yourself uber-close to the mistletoe and get ready for a make out marathon. This super-glossy-but-never-sticky formula comes in 6 amazing shades, but I recommend trying Throb (sparkling red) or Tremble (sparking pink) since they’re so festive. The aphrodisiac blend is designed to inspire desire… but be careful, someone might catch you kissing S.C.!

Mojo Makeover Book: How it started…and how I started!

describe the imageThe Mojo Makeover book goes on sale today! (Check out my video message from Times Square.) Once you get it, I want you to be in close touch with me, tell me how it’s going—give a shout out for all your “yes!” moments. Clue me in! 

I’ll share what’s happening with me, too. I’m going to kick things off by telling you where the Mojo Makeover book came from. 

It began with…my mom.

Yes, my mom! Besides being gorgeous, charismatic and irresistible, my mom was a makeup artist. She had the ability to transform women’s lives through her makeovers. She’d illuminate their inner sirens, and they’d look at themselves in an entirely different way than when they were finished. Barbara coached them, right there in her chair. She asked questions and got the women to talk about themselves…she was their Vault. When they walked out of the salon, they were lit up from the inside. They exuded sexy self-confidence!

I worked at the beauty salon where my mom did makeup. Watching her, I learned to believe in the beauty and power that exists in every woman. I came to understand that with a little girlfriend-to-girlfriend chat, some practical instruction, and yes, a little lipgloss, you could help any woman discover her unique beauty, feel more alive and boost her inner confidence.

From Beauty Shop to Booty Parlor

In 2004, I started Booty Parlor, a brand of beauty products and sexy bedroom accessories created specifically to boost women’s sexy self-confidence. Every piece offers a way for women to bring their inner vixen out to play. So creating this brand was a natural evolution for me. I modeled it on the close-knit, girly vibe of a beauty shop, where all inhibitions could be left at the door. I wanted women to forget boundaries and feel comfortable asking personal questions. I knew I was right, and I knew women would love it, and they did!

Over the next several years, I educated thousands of women on sex and sexy products, and along the way, I created a program to lead women through their own sexy revolutions….I called it The Mojo Makeover. Its purpose was—and still is—to get women more in tune with their sexy selves. I want everyone to have that blissed-out feeling like the ladies at the beauty shop, and to carry it with them into all parts of their lives.

I’m definitely my own woman, but I have Barbara’s desire to groom women’s inner spark—to set them free to enjoy their curves, their sexiness, their lives. I can’t wait to bring that to all of you and I can’t wait to hear what you think about the book!

Turn your bedroom…into a sexy boudoir!

describe the imageAs a Sexy Lifestyle Expert, you can imagine that a lot of what I talk about takes place in the bedroom. But let’s take a moment to focus on the space itself. I want you to think about the bedroom as a sanctuary, a place that you escape to….an oasis.  

These five moves (and a few key accessories) will make your bedroom feel more fabulous, and you’ll feel sexier in it!

 1. Ditch the clutter. Move the exercise equipment and all traces of work to another room—they’re reminders of things you need to do and they distract you from sexy thoughts. File the store receipts away and put any kid or in-law photos in the den or playroom, you don’t need them watching!

2.  Add sexy accents. Think: a frilly, bordello-inspired bedside lamp, a string of tiny white lights along your curtains, a twinkly chandelier. And of course, light some candles! Booty Parlor Don’t Stop Massage Candle is made from soy wax, which has a low burning point and can be drizzled onto skin and massaged in. The scent is divine!

3. Upgrade your bedding. Bedding that feels good against bare skin is so seductive. Look for satin or silk which are slinky and sexy. Another favorite of mine (especially in the cooler months) is cotton jersey—it’s amazingly soft and happens to be totally affordable.

4.  Keep chocolate close by! It’s an aphrodisiac. Try Booty Parlor Melt Chocolate Body Fondue for dipping strawberries into. I created it because I love the close connection that comes from being fed, and feeding someone else. It’s very Cleopatra/Marc Antony-ish…so hedonistic and intimate. I’ve also been known to share molten chocolate cake in bed. The texture alone is…naughty. Just buying it for the night fires up my Mojo!

5. Debut a new frisky accessory. No question, it will inspire desire! Try Booty Parlor’s lacy Turn Me On Vibrating Panties. Its 10 remote-controlled settings offer all sorts of fabulous bedroom experiences! Whatever you choose to spice things up, whether it’s a piece of lingerie, a toy, a sexy movie, make a show of it by displaying it on top of your bed. Glancing at it during the day will build anticipation for you (and your partner!).

Easier than you imagined, right? Go for it this weekend…think of it as a warm-up to Valentine’s Day!

Let’s Talk About Mojo!

describe the imageThe Booty Parlor Mojo Makeover: Four Weeks to a Sexier You is out soon. Really soon. Like January 25th soon! So in honor of our founder (and book author) Dana B. Myers, and to help spread the Mojo magic around, let’s have a quick Q&A-style warm up!

What’s Mojo? Mojo is your sexy spark. It’s that glow that comes from within, your lust for life. Mojo is more than just confidence. It’s sexy self-confidence, your ability to know, embrace and love your body—and to let the world know it! 

Why work on your Mojo? When your Mojo is fired up, you exude sexy self confidence. Others feel that and respond in kind, adding even more gas to your Mojo tank.

Will fixing my Mojo feel…right? There’s no ‘fixing’ going on, that’s so important to know! The Mojo Makeover isn’t about changing who you are—it’s about highlighting everything that you already are, drawing on your passions, your personality, your past experiences, current preferences and relationships. It brings all the fabulous things about you up to the surface—where they should be.

Can you jump start your Mojo? For sure! Try admiring yourself. (Really!) Dance in the mirror wearing something skimpy. Get into the mix and flirt a little, and soak up the positive reaction. Wear something that shows off your curves and enjoy the attention. You see? It’s not hard. Here’s another one: In the shower, take time to caress and worship your soft skin, and high-five your juicy curves. Do it while you wash with a decadent bath gel or bubble bath (it can double as a body wash, you know). Do the same by applying a rich body cream (and stop saving it for special nights, use it every day!). Your skin will be touchable…sexy! Try Booty Parlor Naughty Bubbles Bubble Bath. It leaves a luminous glow on skin. And follow with Booty Parlor Flirty Little Secret Luminizing Body Butter, a luxe cream with a seductive scent that’s infused with pheromones, which help to subtly inspire sexy-self confidence, flirtation, and attention from those around you.

See? It’s easy. Got some Mojo moves of your own? Share them here—hit the comments!

The touch…that hits the spot.

Earlier this week, I realized I had a king-sized knot in my neck, and another in my shoulder. I think it must have been from the combination of LA traffic (prepping for the Mojo Makeover book launch has got me driving to meetings all over town, which is exciting, but crazy!), and a new interval training workout program I started on Tuesday (note to self: must stretch more afterwards).

describe the image

The first clue that things were off was the robotic walk that my posture took on by mid-week. I was stiff. I ached. I was cranky about it. Because I wasn’t feeling loose, my physical energy wasn’t really flowing smoothly…and you know, when your body is stiff, your Mojo can get stiff too!

I needed to take action, so I decided to book a massage, and not just a 60-minute massage, or a 90-minute massage. I pushed all my mommy guilt aside and booked a 120-minute deep tissue massage. It was nothing short of HEAVEN! Days later, the benefits are still rolling out. My body is supple, bendy, fabulous. And I feel friskier for it. A happy body wants to be touched, you know.  

I want to share this feeling with someone else. So, I think I’ll treat the husband to a little relaxing massage tonight. I’ve got some great techniques to wow him with. I want to share them, so you can give someone you love a seductive ending to their week, too!

• When using massage oil, be sure to warm it for a few seconds in a microwave, then stir it and test a drop before you slather it onto your partner’s skin. It feels so much more sensual than cold oil. (I created a sexy candle for Booty Parlor called Don’t Stop Massage Candle—you light it and the soy wax melts into a warm massage oil that’s meant to be drizzled onto skin. It was one of my favorite products to test-run!)

• The best massages are sensual and slow, don’t over-think it. I follow the pattern of masseuses I have visited: I start with the back and work down, and then I do the arms, then the butt and legs. When you do the arms, continue over the hands and then gently pull each finger, one by one from base to tip. It’s a little move that gives an extra rush of pleasure—fingers are loaded with nerve endings, and by the time you get to them, your partner’s body is ready to explode and the little tugs on each digit will push him over the edge! He’ll never forget it.

• I know, you want your turn! But I advise waiting until the next night to collect. Because let’s be honest, when you are getting a rubdown, you don’t want to think about then having to give one. At least I don’t! I want to bask in the moment and then lie there after….and eat a piece of chocolate!

• Massage is an amazing way to share time together, whether you want to prolong your foreplay, or, if you aren’t really in the mood for a wild sexy night, you can still have an intimate time together…and it if leads to more, so be it!

I’m coming to New York City soon for the launch of the book (check my Facebook page for deets, I’ll post events as I get the info!). In the meantime, tell me NYC ladies, what’s the best place to get a massage?

Let me know the hot spots!

Subtle ways to add glow—and grab attention!

168749 490890858122 6203818122 6342714 7447636 s resized 600The Golden Globes are coming soon—this Sunday!—and there will be tons of glamour and glitz and gorgeous body skin on display. Ready to grab the spotlight for your fabulous self? Amp up your sexy self-confidence with a little well-placed shimmer and shine!

1. Pamper yourself with a body scrub. Use it from neck-to-toe. The reason? Besides making skin touchable and soft, when skin’s surface is smooth, it reflects more light and looks radiant. Try Booty Parlor Flirty Little Secret Pink Caviar Scrub. Its raspberry-lemon sorbet scent makes you smell delicious.

2. Dust on some body shimmer. Place it where your skin gets dewy. Think: along your collarbone, your décolletage, and biceps, and along each shinbone. Try Booty Parlor Dust Up Body Shimmer. The buildable shimmer can be worn like a whisper or boldly depending on your mood (and they taste yummy!).  

3. Double up your lip colors. Apply a deep color lipgloss, then dab another lighter shade overtop, onto to the center of your upper and lower lips. Try Booty Parlor Kissaholic Lip Gloss in Swoon, a provocative plum, and top with Tremble, a sheer light pink. The lighter hue will draw attention to the lushest parts of your lips—seduce away!

Ok Booty Parlor babes…we showed you ours, now you show us yours! How will you get your sexy look on this weekend, ‘Globe style? Smoky eyes? A hot and bothered cheek flush? A new pushup bra? Dish!

New Year’s Resolution: Flirt More!

describe the imageI’m big on flirting, especially within a relationship. It’s how you show that you have the hots for each other. I don’t think it’s done consciously, but women stop flirting when they’re committed. It feels so good to send and receive that kind of frisky attention. After all, you’re not dead! It’s human nature to want to feel desired. 

Try these moves—think of them like a little tune up, to add some spice in 2011. There’s no question, you’ll both enjoy the Mojo boost!

  • Hold hands in public. Such a small, yet mighty flirting move, that’s so often forgotten over time! (You can even slip your fingers into his mitten.) Hands and fingers are loaded with nerves and touching them is electrifying. 
  • Sit on his lap, facing him, when he’s trying to work on the computer. Extra points if you wear a low-cut top when you do this—knowing that he’s liking the view will stir you further.
  • Swat his bottom at random. And shake yours when he’s walking behind you. 
  • Whisper something naughty in your partner’s ear at a public event, or slip a sexy note into his jacket pocket. Your version might be as simple as “wait til I get you home…” or something more graphic. Do what feels right!

You’ll laugh inside at first, but these small moments are exactly what couples need to keep the fire burning. Go on now, get started. The more you flirt, the more you’ll realize that it works!
