reasons love husband flowers

Reasons I Love My Husband

Through downs and ups, why do you love him still? Share your reasons, big and small, why you would never trade your man for any other in the world.

What are your favorite reasons you love your husband or honey-bunny? Add your reasons in the comment section below to become part of our ongoing list.

  1. Sometimes he acts like a 14 year-old. But he can be serious and an adult when the situation calls for it.
  2. He encourages me, he is my personal cheerleading squad when NO ONE else is there.
  3. He makes me laugh. He loves to tell funny stories. Even if in the end they do not end up as funny as he thought they would be (he does go on), our shared laughter is what matters.
  4. He is an amazing father. He loves our kids unconditionally and to the moon and back.
  5. He is willing to watch chick-flicks with me. (Sometimes.) Sometimes he will sit there with a disgruntled look on his face but never complains.
  6. He is a man of his word. From our wedding vows or saying no to our kids for dessert after nine, he sticks to his word.
  7. He asks my opinion. And listens. He asks for my opinion on anything from a tie pattern to a big decision at the office. And what’s more, he asks for my opinion because he wants to hear what I think.
  8. He tells me I’m beautiful, out of the blue. Even during the times when I have just rolled out of bed and not even taken a shower yet , it surprises me and makes me happy.
  9. He’s a great bug killer! I hate them and he doesn’t. His skills with a rolled-up magazine are legend.
  10. His hands. His hands are a constant reminder of how he can be so strong, yet so caring.
  11. He still brings me flowers for no reason. Sometimes he will come home with a bouquet of flowers. Each time I am just as surprised and it brightens my day.

No matter big or small, these are some of the reasons we love our husbands. Let us know what are some of your reasons in the comment section below and we will add it to our ongoing list.

Bluebella Lingerie UK: Indulge. Desire. Excite.

Bluebella is nothing if not indulgent. Steeped in a rich British lingerie heritage, Bluebella’s edgy styles are designed to “make every day feel just that little bit more exciting.” Founded in London in 2005 by Emily Bendell, the story and vision for the brand is simple: to create luxurious lingerie and sleepwear collections that take you from day to nighttime, and everywhere in between.

Bluebella Bow Knickers

“Every woman deserves to wear lingerie that is feminine, provocative and desirable,” says Bendell. “It’s the first thing you put on and the last thing you take off. No-one should leave gorgeous lingerie languishing in a drawer, waiting for that ‘special occasion’ . . .” Well, Miss Bendell, we couldn’t agree more. And that is exactly what we were thinking when we started the Enclosed: to bring every woman a little bit of luxury that she can enjoy any, or every, day.

Why Enclosed Loves Bluebella Lingerie

Lingerie is more than just something you wear in the boudoir. And while a Bluebella panty is certainly always boudoir-worthy, what we truly love about this lingerie line is that they manage to make the exceptionally sexy exceptionally comfy – and never too delicate. With their brilliant use of stretchy lace and soft, smooth trimmings, even the raciest of a Bluebella panty can easily be worn any day of the week. Says Bendell, “When you dress well from head to toe, you feel better!”

Trend-conscious designs combined with expert construction and wearability make Jenna Leigh panties the perfect addition to any fashion-forward girl’s wardrobe, or a great gift for a bridesmaid or bride-to-be.

Why [ENCLOSED] Loves Jenna Leigh Panties

Jenna Leigh: An All American Lingerie Brand

Philadelphia-born designer Jenna Leigh Blatstein attended school at the University of Miami. While studying abroad in London, she fell in love with the high-end lingerie brands she found there and started to think, “Why can’t American women have lingerie like this?” And the rest was history: “I started forming my vision: to have a fashion-forward lingerie brand that is popular in America for the fashion-conscious girl.”

jenna leigh boyshort

In 2009, the precocious young designer launched her lingerie line, Jenna Leigh, at the age of 23. Her fashion-forward designs instantly caught the attention of major press and were seen on celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Kate Upton, Leighton Meester of Gossip Girls and Kim Kardashian. In 2012, Jenna Leigh opened her first stand-alone boutique in Atlantic City, New Jersey, near the shore where she had spent every summer since childhood.

The Very Last Jenna Leigh Panties On Earth

Sadly, in 2014 Jenna Leigh went out of business. Lucky for you, we jumped on this news and bought out her entire panty inventory, literally grabbing up every last pair of knickers Jenna Leigh ever made. And it was a lot. Once available at major luxury stores such as Barney’s New York and Holt Renfrew, Enclosed is now the last standing retailer to carry this highly coveted lingerie line. And with so many gorgeous Jenna Leigh styles to choose from, we’re basically in knicker heaven.

Eberjey Lingerie Brand Spotlight

Eberjey: From Miami, With Love

When one thinks of Miami, one thinks of palm trees, Cuban influences, and tan, curvaceous beauties in teeny bikinis. But Miami is also home to one of our favorite lingerie brands, Eberjey. Makers of the most deliciously comfy stretch lace knickers, Eberjey proves that alluring lingerie can be absolutely wearable. And those sunny beachy colors . . . yum.

Why [ENCLOSED] Loves Eberjey Panties

At Enclosed, we take knickers super seriously. And that’s why the knicker drawers at our San Francisco offices are filled with a rainbow of Eberjey thongs, boyshorts and bikinis that are our trusted go-to for their incredible fit, comfort, and quality. Not to mention fabulous lace that is as exquisitely intricate as it is stretchy and soft. In colors with names like “Sunset Glow”, “Iceberg Neon” and “Beach Glass”, wearing Eberjey is like being on permanent vacation.

The Eberjey Lingerie Philosophy

Eberjey was born in 1996 from the belief that the layer worn next to the heart should express happiness, love, and confidence; all the things that make a woman truly beautiful.

Founders Ali Mejia and Mariela Rovito left their careers in advertising to address what they saw as a distinct lack in the lingerie industry of pretty underthings that felt as good to wear as they also looked. And they’ve been incredibly successful, growing from a small underwear company to a global lifestyle brand with a full range of lingerie and loungewear, as well as swimwear for both women and girls.

KISSKILL Lingerie: Killing It From Melbourne, Australia

From the moment we spied KISSKILL, we were eager to be one of the first and very few retailers in the US to carry this edgy upstart of a brand. Based out of Melbourne, Australia, designer Jane Carrodus founded KISSKILL out of a love for designing feminine pieces while taking risks. In the name, KISS represents the soft, feminine side of a woman’s personality, while KILL references the allure of a woman’s sexuality and instinct: literally, killer sex appeal.

KISSKILL is not about underwear – worn simply for function – but about lingerie – that conjures up a sense of intrigue and mystery surrounding what lies beneath. And that is exactly why we love KISSKILL. For you will never see a piece of underwear in the [ENCLOSED] offices. But you will see beautiful KISSKILL knickers in jewel-toned silks trimmed with eyelash lace, dainty bows and decadent tulle.

granny panty vs. thong

Who is Really Wearing The Granny Panties?

A Response To The New York Times & New York Magazine Granny Panty Stories

granny pantyRecently, a New York Times article stated that young generations of women are buying full coverage “granny panties” and ditching lacy thongs. The article takes a few scant data points and extrapolates a nation-wide (or perhaps world-wide!) trend.

The article points to a niche designer selling high-waist granny panties with the word “feminist” on the rear. Yet out of all the lingerie and underwear brands out there, only two companies are cited in the article. Moreover, the article is backed with one data point. The one data point from NPD Group states “sales of thongs decreased 7 percent over the last year, while sales of fuller styles – briefs, boy shorts and high-waist briefs – have grown a collective 17 percent.” Perhaps the sales were all in boyshorts. Nowhere in the NPD study doies the word Granny (Or Grandma) appear.

The Granny-Panty Weigh-In: A Biased Perspective

Author, Hayley Phelan is a senior Editor for Fashionista.com and has credits with Teen Vogue, Interview, Elle, and luckymag.com. Although Phelan has deep of experience in fashion (she recently covered New York Fashion Week), she does not necessarily represent the average woman nor seem to have any sense of trends outside of the island of Manhattan.

Although many of us love to check out the new styles that fashion leaders put on the runways, we have to agree with our friend Alison Davis at New York Magazine’s The Cut, who responded “who is buying them? Certified grandmas? Wannabe grandmas?” There are certain trends that never go beyond the West Village.

Granny Panties vs. High Waisted Panties

high waisted granny pantyHigh waists are undoubtedly in. But high-waisted and granny should not be conflated. Anyone in the lingerie industry knows that “high-waist” could mean a variety of options. The term granny panties brings to mind white, thin, cotton, loose-fitting underwear with heavy coverage in the front and back that also happens to be high-waist. However, high-waist could apply to thongs and G-strings too. Cuts between the waist and the backside are two different measurements, not to be used interchangeably. Although thongs sales may have decreased, their competition is a much larger spectrum of styles.

31 Flavors of Underwear

Granny panties v. thongs is the way the New York Times framed the debate, yet there is so much more to underwear than a full on diaper or a few triangles here and there. Tangas, bikinis, G-strings, boy shorts, there are many different styles to choose from. Waists range from the ultra-low-rise to the nipple grazing – and height of rise does not dictate the coverage of the bum. We are not advocating a return to Britney Spears circa 2007 flashing her thong, nor do should we all mimic Chloë Sevigny in her fashion-insider couture granny panties. Ladies, lets revel in all the options of panty styles, rather than limiting ourselves to the two options dictated by a navel-gazing fashion insider. (Plus, her navel would presumably bee covered by her granny panties, no?)
