2. The Hamptons Collection is a four-piece textile-on-canvas series that’s inspired by the oft-coveted enclave on the east end of Long Island New York.

Now you can get fancy with text: add up to five letters on the bottom right, offering three fun fonts, and 14 sweet hues, your art is now entirely yours. $65
From Georgica Pond to The Palm Restaurant, the leaf design reflects the lush gardens of East Hampton while adding just a little bit of glitz.
The pearl meets zebra print represents the dichotomy of the Hamptons, merging old and new. It’s stylish and fun.
This sophisticated toile print was inspired by the beautiful farmlands in Bridgehampton. It’s the most traditional print in the collection.
Southhampton has the most charming town. Everything is perfect with a bow on top.
3. Her Highness Pleasure Oil
Make your romance novel fantasy a reality with a little help from ultra-premium, hemp-
derived CBD. CBD, a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis, works hard to
increase muscle relaxation. We’ve also added to our CBD pleasure oil, a South
American medicinal plant extract known for increasing salivation—AKA wetness. Put
these two botanical powerhouses together in a base of extra virgin Californian olive oil,
and you can guess what that means for your nether regions. We worked with a
professional female herbalist to concoct the most powerful sex topical women can buy
and tested it (many, many times) to make sure it’s legit. It’s not a lube, it’s an orgasm
enhancer. Live your best orgasm. With a lover. A stranger. Or love yourself.
Together with 500mg CBD, our Pleasure Oil includes extract of the South American
“love flower”, a game changer setting this product apart from all others. Organic
California olive oil provides the base. Not latex safe.
Retail Price: $60
