Hey, it’s the Fourth of July! Get out there and be a firecracker

Things that are magical: Unicorns. Harry Potter. National holidays that give us a day off work. With July 4th coming up fast, here are some red, white, and blue ideas to get you in the mood.


  • Whip up a pitcher of homemade watermelon and strawberry slushies. These are awesome with or without alcohol. Drink them while watching the sunset after a scorching day.
  • Get a patriotic mani. You could play it safe and go all red, or capture the flag and have your nails painted red, white, and blue.


  • After the outdoor fireworks, create more in the bedroom with white candles that double as massage oil. Light a Jimmyjane Afterglow Candle, dip a brush into it as it melts, paint it on and massage each other.
  • Whipped cream is white. And crazy delicious. Plan a picnic and bring whipped cream, blueberries, and strawberries. Tip: Dab some on your neck and have him lick it off.


  • Is that a rocket in his pocket? Yes. Make your country proud and adorn it with a red, white, and blue condom. (We recommend using one along with your other trusted method of birth control.)
  • Malibu Betty is shockingly blue dye for the hair down there. It’s safe and OMG they have stencils. You can add stars! Revolutionary indeed.

Have fun,
