Payot Charcoal Exfoliating Gel

The wine condom has been invented, and it is the weirdest thing we have ever seen… yet we sort of want one?


The new quirky invention is packaged just like real condoms, and you just roll them onto the top of a bottle, allowing you to store away or transport it.

Practical and funny.. what's not to love?

OK, so Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and most of you are probably wondering what to get the man in your life.

Look no further, lovelies, because broquets are the answer to all your problems.

"Flowers are lame, say it with beef" is the slogan supporting the company that creates pretty flower arrangements… out of beef.

 That's right, ladies; you can buy glorious flower bouquets, made entirely from dried beef jerky!

For the cool price of €32, you can hook your man up with the meatiest flower display you could imagine.


Love peppered #jerky, but cleaning up from making a #Broquet can be annoying. #worthit #Broquet #SayItWithBeef #beefjerky
