Me, myself and my Bloom…


The Bloom, by We-Vibe, is my first adult ‘accessory’, and I’m proud to say: Exercise has never been this fun!

The Bloom is specially designed to tone and strengthen the PC (pubococcygeus) muscles in the vagina. It has three progressive weights (10g, 30g and 45g) and it vibrates as well. I would say this product gives the best of both worlds!

It is a ‘clench-and-release’ exercise that strengthens the pelvic floor, treats urinary and fecal incontinence, makes it easier to achieve orgasms, and enhances our sensitivity to create astonishing climaxes. Kegel exercises can help recover the vaginal canal after birth, and the tightness you will achieve as a benefit will heighten arousal sensations for you and your partner.

I challenged the Bloom by doing the recommended exercise every day for two weeks. It was an adventurous experiment. Believe me when I say: It works! The exercise I find the most effective is squeezing your PC muscles for five seconds and then releasing for five seconds, and repeating the process for 15 minutes per day. I can feel a difference in how much easier the exercise is now.

You can connect your Bloom to the ‘we-connect’ app after downloading it from your smartphone app store. From there you can control the 10 different vibration modes. I used it as my personal remote to adjust the power of the vibrations in public. You can even be a bit naughty and let your lover tease you with their own choice of vibrations.

The Bloom is waterproof, which makes it effortless to clean. There is a USB power cable included to charge the device when the low power alert comes on. The Bloom will last up to 90 minutes of continuous use, after one 90-minute charge.

The Bloom is made from body-safe silicone, phthalate and is BPA (bisphenol) and latex free. I would highly recommend adding lube with your purchase for more comfortable insertion.

There is a We-Vibe lube sample included for you to test.

A soft, satin bag is included with your Bloom, so your toy has a clean and luxurious storage.

The Bloom doubles as a play toy too, so can be used for clitoral and internal stimulation on your own, or with a partner. See it as a reward for working so hard with your Kegel exercises!

We-Vibe provides a two-year warrantee.

I’m so satisfied with my choice and I’m convinced that you will be too!

2018 after a very long silence….

We are going into this year, having 2 stores!

Yes, 2 stores, our Bloemfontein branch and now also Durbanville. What a journey it was, opening our second store – this one being in a shopping centre. Shop 7; Heritage Square in Durbanville. Planning the layout, making sure that everything in the store are placed correctly and having to work with a totally different layout than the old house our Bloemfontein store is in, was both scary and fun.

Everyone in the centre were so excited about the new “lingerie” store opening. We closed up the windows and had everyone guessing until the night before opening on the 4th of December!

Our store has a very soft, welcoming reception area, filled with stunning lingerie and a beautiful reception desk. With our “miniature” toy room peeping out from the corner. Behind the wall in reception we have a large fun room that has all our Shunga products, lubricants, edibles, novelties, games and a little bit of toys….

We decided NOT to close all our windows and have a open approach, exactly the way that we approach our beliefs in relationships. We have a display window, right at the corner of the shop and our sliding doors to the shop are also see through. This is a hit! We are open for just more than a month now and you would not believe the hype!

We change the display in the window every week. People have to walk past our store to use the centre’s toilets. They literally stop and stare or giggle, shame and some guys get a slap on the back of their head, because of looking at our display! Just mentioning that we DO NOT display toys….

We stated 2018 with a bang! We are causing a stir in Durbanville!

Hello, did you know?

Welcome to my very first blog!
I am the “Tannie” that own Cosettes, previously known as The Bedroom Bloemfontein. About two years ago I decided to leave the franchise I opened the shop under originally. The big reason for this decision was the fact that my shop and my vision for the shop did not fit into the vision of the franchise.
I believe that the little things in a relationship are the most important and that is how I got to the new name – Cosettes. One of the translated meanings of Cosette is “my little thing”. That and the fact that my husband loves the musical “Les Miserables”, gave birth to “Cosettes”
I love my shop and know that you would love it too, so if you have not been to the shop, do take the time to come and visit it OR follow this blog and I promise you that you will want to come and see it…..
It is a intimate boutique, where individuals and couples are welcome – without ANY APPOINTMENT. The shop is open during the week, on Saturdays and on most Public Holidays.
We have anything and everything to help you maintain or spice up your relationship. We offer this to you in a classy, relaxed atmosphere, where you can take your time and shop to your heart’s content. Situated in the quiet Chris Botha street, in Westdene, Bloemfontein, with ample parking at the back of the shop, discreet intimate shopping is for sure what we offer you.
Going forward I will tell you about some of the products that are available in the shop as well as online. Most important, I will share the details of our events with you. I specifically refrain from calling it services we provide, as this only causes confusion out there – given the “industry” we are in.
So, at the back of our shop we have a stunning venue. You can book this venue for your very own private party, being a bachelorette, birthday party, ladies night, book club, stock fell or whatever the occasion might be. At an all inclusive cost per head, we will provide you with the venue, food, drinks, standard decor, a dance lesson and an exclusive tour of our classy store. You also get the opportunity to shop. Pop us an e-mail and we will send you all the details. If you are curious about this, check out our Facebook page – The Bedroom Bloemfontein for pictures of some of our events. And while you are there, like us, please?
There you have it. Looking forward to the next blog already!
