New year is a time where we evaluate all aspects of our life, deciding which things we need to change and which things we would like to keep the same. We often tend to look at the relationships we have with our friends and closer to home our partners. Often we love our partners dearly but time and mundane routines tend to make us forget why we are together in the first place. Finding a way to rekindle a dim love life can be difficult and often shelved for tasks that are easier to complete. Unfortunately by putting your relationship on the back burner too often you can inadvertently extinguish the flame of desire and be left with the destruction and embers of a failed relationship.

Reigniting the Flames of Passion

Usually work is a demanding reason why couples spend very little romantic time together, that and juggling the children and putting out the rubbish causes the day to end swiftly and the only intimate thing you have shared with your partner is a meal. This is why the new year is a perfect time to reignite the flames of passion and spice up the year ahead with some very simple changes to your life.

Why not snuggle up together on the sofa using modern technology and make start by looking for great lingerie that will spice up your love life and give you both the opportunity to cast knowing smiles at each other over the dining table because you are wearing beautifully crafted Casmir Lingerie chosen by both of you. You may even decide to claim that you need to ‘tidy’ the bedroom so that you can explore the quality lace and seductive material while the family, blissfully unaware of your deception, play charades downstairs.

Using a Little bit of Imagination.

When you cast your eyes on Casmir Lingerie you will be very impressed by the way that the designers have managed to tastefully combine eroticism and comfort in garments that suggest a hidden secret lurking in your mind. Casmir Lingerie have made wonderful use of colours, fabrics and shape to give the air of classy seductiveness. At first you may find spicing up your relationship in this way to feel slightly uncomfortable and not quite you but after introducing the flickering light and aroma of scented candles and maybe one or two erotic toys for you to play with you may find that you develop a sexy alter ego who relishes in the joy of bringing pleasure to yourself and your partner. Once role playing and adding a little extra excitement to your life becomes an normal part of your bedroom routine – why not shake it up a little and book yourselves into a lavish hotel with log fires and exquisite food and pretend that you have just met each other. Don’t forget that by unleashing your inner seductress you have opened up a vast world of erotic adventures for you and your very happy partner.

Buying lingerie for your significant other is not the dangerous waters you may think. You’ll find that with a little guidance and some good judgment, you can make her happy which, of course, makes you happy.

When you buy lingerie for someone, you are buying a very personal item. Even if you are buying a wedding gift, lingerie is still very personal. When you purchase one of these items for a loved one, you are showing that you’re taking time out to think of them in particular. One of the nicest things about this is that you are also telling your spouse that you love her. Face it, it takes a little more thought to purchase lingerie. You don’t want to buy racy items that will make her feel cheap, but you don’t want to go too far the other way and make her feel like a grandma. You usually have to know your significant other quite well to make those selections, and the thoughtfulness does not go unnoticed.

Build Her Ego

You can build her ego with a thoughtful selection of lingerie. Many women lose their confidence as they age, have babies, and gain, lose, and gain weight again. With a nice choice of lingerie, you are acknowledging her femininity and attractiveness. A chemise night set can be plenty sexy, yet modest, and is intimate enough to let her know that you find her attractive without being overtly racy. A satin robe is luxurious, and can make any woman feel appreciated. If you want to include a racy little thong and cami, go ahead – with the robe, you’re giving her the option of being modest when she is so inclined. When you buy her lingerie, you are telling her that you like her looks, and that you want her to feel pretty.

Sexy or Not


So often, men think that if they buy their woman lingerie, they have to buy something sexy. However, most will agree that the nightie itself is not as sexy as the woman in it. If you’re into role-playing, that’s something different. Here, we’re talking about lace, studs, thongs, bras, and fabrics. Believe it or not, a woman will go buy weird or kinky stuff for herself, so that she can please her man. You want to reinforce that you find her to be beautiful and sexy on her own. So, think in terms of buying satin, soft materials with cotton gussets. If an item has lace, feel of the lace. Pull it across your arm – if it feels scratchy, and snags the hair on your arm, it won’t be comfortable for her to wear. Most lace is very rough and scratchy.

Take Requests

Has she asked for any particular item of lingerie? If she has asked for it, see if you can find it. Some women want specific items. In such cases, you can probably get the sizes from her. This makes it much easier to go shopping,
