Picks for the Anti-Valentine

31 Jan

So, you hate Valentine’s Day too? Maybe you dislike the idea, or the “Hallmark Holiday”, or just don’t feel like celebrating. Well, join the club: there’s even a day for it, if you’re single.

But even if you hate Valentine’s, you deserve a treat, right? And if going out with your friends isn’t your thing, how about a night in, snuggled up with a DVD or a book and some coffee and cake? Or chocolate, of course – it is traditional at this time of year, after all. Oh, plus it’s tasty.

So, what would I recommend? Well, top of the list: entertainment. I particularly enjoyed reading the …on Top selections of short stories – salacious literature about men and women topping (or dominating) their partners. Alternatively, if looking at gorgeous photography is more your bag, you can’t go wrong with a spot of Ray Leaning.

Prefer a night with a good film? Well, then I prescribe Preaching to Perverted, a BBC film (yes, really!) now exclusive to Coffee, Cake & Kink, it is the story of a young man trying to gather evidence for a legal case against fetish clubs in the UK; however, the star of the show falls in love with an American sex goddess and leader of the UK and US “scene” and tries to persuade her out of her illegal exploits, whereas she wants to pervert him… who will win? The DVD is region 0 which means you can watch it anywhere in the world. You know you want to try it…

What will you eat and drink whilst you enjoy your evening’s entertainment? Our ranges of coffee and cake change often, so give us a call to chat to one of our Personal Shoppers and see if they can tempt you with some wonderful Monmouth coffee, handmade cakes and Feeding Your Imagination chocolate…

New Year’s Resolutions

16 Jan

The office is buzzing with changes and plans for the new year, and we at Coffee, Cake and Kink wanted to help you out with some of the season’s most common New Year’s Resolutions. We know making and keeping them can be hard, so over on tumblr and twitter we’ve been making suggestions every day for resolutions that are easy to keep. We’ve collected them here, along with a few other suggestions.

 

Get Fit

There doesn’t seem to be a single person out there that hasn’t muttered that infamous phrase “I’ll just try and exercise a bit more”. Well, we at CCK heartily agree! It’s important to give your whole body a workout, and we mean your whole body. Ladies, why not try some Smartballs? They train your pelvic floor, and we can guarantee you’ll feel a difference by Valentines Day! And Gents, why not pick up a lovely steel cockring – beauty and functionality in one, giving your cock a workout while you have fun.

Read More

We have a huge selection of books, so why not pick up a new read for the new year? We have a range of books, from beautifully reprinted erotic masterpieces such as Fanny Hill, to contemporary classics –  so why not pick up a new read today?

 

Try Something New

We always encourage trying something new, but we can understand it can sometimes be a bit daunting too. That’s why we stock a comprehensive selection of  Manuals and guidebooks to help you learn and discover new sides to your kink. Also, if you want more advice on what other items you might need, why not contact our Personal Shoppers who are ready and able to give you whatever advice you need on your new resolution!

 

Get in to Art

There is so much gorgeous art in the world at the moment. We’ll be posting a few highlights here for art out and about, but if you want something to make your home more beautiful, CCK has a collection of artwork and affordable cards.


Pamper Yourself

Have a luxurious moment. Our Jimmy Jane Little Ember Candles give a wonderful ambiance and delicious scent to any room. That’s not all they do either… once burnt down, they leave a moisturising body oil that can be massaged in to the skin. Perfect for beating the winter blues.

 

Eat Well

We believe it’s always better to eat good food in moderation than fill yourself up with chemicals to lose weight. Why not switch your regular boring chocolate for a little bit of something really special? Feed Your Imagination chocolate is crafted by award winning chef (and Alternative Therapist) Paul Da-Costa-Greaves, and is packed full of incredible mood-enhancing ingredients which will really make a difference to your day. It’s a firm favourite in the office, especially with our Webshop Queen, Rae, who chose it for her Staff Pick.

 

Be More Alert

It’s the perfect time to start drinking really good coffee. We only stock the very best (which, as anybody will tell you, is Monmouth Coffee) and we make sure we always keep it fresh – after all, it’s what we drink in the office. This is the same coffee we served in the CCK cafe (and, if you’ve decided to follow our advice above – we also have a selection of our cakes).

We have big plans for our coffee this year, so it’s a great time to get a taste for it!

 

Make New Friends

Why not get involved in the world of CCK? We’re on Twitter, Facebook, and Fetlife , and we always want your comments. We regularly give out prizes too, so it really does pay to get involved. We have regular socials in restaurants in London, as well as regular shopping parties at the head office, where you can socialise with other customers (and have some coffee and cake). If you can’t make it to one of the parties, make an appointment with our personal shoppers to stop by the office.

Emma is in the process of creating a CCK Kinky Calendar of all the wonderful events happening at CCK, and around the world. If you’d like your event to be included, drop her an email or get in touch on twitter or facebook.

The Aftermath…

28 Dec

I hope everyone is having a good holiday break, whether or not you’re celebrating anything, and wherever you are. At CCK, we’ve taken the holiday period off for some well-deserved rest and recharging of batteries, so we’ll be ready to go with all our new plans come the 3rd of January 2011. Goodness. 2011 – it seems like it should be years away, not the weekend.

A wonderful time was had by all who came to the party last wednesday – by CCK staff, familiar faces, and some new friends. Much cake was eaten; once everyone had moved the party out of the office, we were left with only one slice (ed: I ate it, it was lovely – Emma). The raffle of the goodie bags was a great success, and we were left with a lovely positive christmassy glow. Unless that was the after-effect of drinking our Peter’s coffee and overdosing on glittering chocolate cake. A massive thank you to everyone who came!

If you didn’t manage to make it to the party, we would love to see you – give us a ring, or get hold of us on twitter, and make an appointment to come in for a chat with one of our personal shoppers. We’re always happy to meet our customers face to face – it reminds us of the fun at Endell Street.

We’ll see you in the New Year! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Staff Pick: Layaspot

15 Dec

Each week, we ask one member of our team to pick which toy (or painting, or book) they most love – this is Katie’s.

I tend to love Fun Factory’s toys and the Layaspot is no exception.  The colourful, funky shaped stuff is often cute enough to leave lying around without embarrassment – I’ve mistaken a buttplug for a piece of art before! – and they pack in a mean bit of excitement as well.  The Layaspot has multi-speed vibration and three pulsation modes, and like the rest of Fun Factory’s products it is made from high quality hypoallergenic material.  In all, it’s a really exciting little toy and well worth the cost.  I personally think the silver/black is the most stylish, but it comes in a bunch of colours so have a browse around!

Would gold do it for you?

14 Dec

Asked what is the single item he has bought that has brought him the most happiness, Sir Elton John said: “Vibrator, definitely. A gold one.” (Evening Standard).

Well…we at CCK are capable of finding you a golden toy for your pleasure this Christmas time. In fact…there are are a few that have been made suitable for the season. How about that?

We're not sure Elton was talking about the duck though.
