BLOGGING ABOUT NATURAL CONTOURS®
It’s difficult to keep track of all the blogs and review sites that Natural Contours® turns up on, but we certainly took note of our listing on the elegant La Petite Blog where some of blogger Charlyvia’s “bloggiest things” include make-up, jewelry, fashion accessories…and sexy things, too! Under ‘best in bed 2009’, the LIBERTÉ™—‘for the art lover’—is described as “a minimalist vibrator that delivers maximum pleasure”
And in another entry, under “bring sexy back”, her ‘toy of choice’ is the ULTIME™: “You don’t need a luxurious, top of the line vibrator any more than you need an Aston Martin, Diamonds or a Plasma TV”, writes Charlyvia, “but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve one! The ULTIME™ by Natural Contours® is a sleek, mind-blowing and virtually silent vibrator”….and the “packaging is worthy of its contents”.
But wait, there’s more! In yet another blog, Charlyvia calls the Natural Contours® IDEAL™ “’just what the doctor ordered”, and suggests the G-PLUS™ attachment for “’mind numbing soothing sensations.’
Natural Contours® had an illustrious visitor to our booth at the recent annual Natural Products Expo in Anaheim.
