Coffee and Espresso Are United As One in New illy Y5 Duo Gadget

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2015

Gone are the days where we had to have two separate machines for our coffee and espresso needs—the new illy Francis Francis Y5 Duo does both with the single touch of a button. The single-serve gadget is surprisingly tiny for satisfying our double caffeine addiction, measuring in at 5.7 inches wide and 9.6 inches tall. The Duo is designed in a way that keeps the coffee from ever touching the drip spout, promising that the product is the purest it can be. With an aluminum and tempered glass body, the Y5 uses iper coffee and espresso capsules, containing illy’s signature blend that features nine different types of sustainably-grown Arabica beans. The pods have little filters that are designed to brew rich, smooth, full-bodied coffee. Currently, you can get medium and dark roast capsules, with decaffeinated options coming in the spring. Sure, the Y5 Duo doesn’t have extra trinkets like milk steamers and warming pads, but it definitely simplifies our morning routine and sometimes that’s all we want.

Spoon-Feed Each Other This Aphrodisiac Before Date Night Sexy Time

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

Caviar is historically a pretty popular aphrodisiac and if it was good enough for Casanova (who apparently used to eat spoonfuls before…you know), it's good enough for us. Considering Valentine's Day is quickly approaching, you may want to indulge in Petrossian's Caviar Showcase for Two. The tasting comes with a 125-gram tin of your choice— Chataluga, Royal Transmontanus, Royal Shassetra, or Royal Ossetra—and will be shipped to you in a custom designed gift box. Inside the box will also be two vodka flutes and two Mother-of-Pearl caviar spoons to feed each other with. If you aren't sure which type of black gold to select, Petrossian experts are on-hand with advice depending on your taste preferences and tips on how to best serve it. 

The price ranges from $290-$675 depending on which caviar you choose.

Kors Vodka's 24k George V Edition Gives Historians Something to Gossip About

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

King George V lived a life that many historians consider to be boring—what's wrong with stamp collecting!?—but he was also a fan of premium vodka, which probably made those puzzle nights a lot more interesting. Kors Vodka offers a handmade, limited Geroge V Edition 24K bottle that apparently tastes just like the good stuff The Tsar Nicholas II used to send the king over a century ago. Using the same recipe, distilling process, ingredients, and techniques, Kors Vodka promises that you'll feel just like one of the Royals when you sip this spirit (of which, only 250 bottles are produced). The crystal decanter is handmade and features gold accents, coming in a polished walnut box that also has gold detailing, as well as a silk and velvet lining. If you want to make your bottle even better, you can request to have gold leaves added inside, like a pretty, flammable snow globe. Who's boring now?
