New Beginnings

As the year comes to a close, I'm looking back on 2019 feeling a lot better about life than I did in 2018.

It's not that 2019 hasn't had challenging times, because who actually has a perfect year?

I would say, tho, that I found more of myself within the past few months of 2019 than I expected.

I'm excited. I'm actually a little apprehensive, but it's all in a good way.

I'm actually happy that I'm feeling butterflies in my stomach about what I want to accomplish in 2020. As a human, I'm a continual work in progress. I have to believe that I do have enough time in life to progress in the areas I hope to. Take a solo trip via a flight to Arizona. Live life.

Part of my growth was creating this space for me to write more freely. I have cultivated a positive space on all things mountain-bike-centered, but it left a lot of "life" to the wayside. I don't want to say that this space is a less professional area, but it promotes my blunt self that wants to talk about things that can be a source of discomfort for some.

I've broached some of those uncomfortable topics on my other site, but I have always felt like I had to hold myself back with some of the raunchy details of my life. Well, okay, maybe not necessarily raunchy, but there have been some ugly and hurtful bits in my life. I also realized that I do have the potential of hurting feelings. Granted, my feelings had been hurt for quite a long time when I had written that piece. The power of words and emotions can be very strong. I've been told several times that I write well. I'm honest. I put feelings out there in a way that makes it relatable.

What if? What if I could write more freely about things that I've gone through?
Writing for me is a form of therapy. I've wanted to journal, but I have so much to say that my hand hurts before I'm done. I like the freedom a new platform gives me, and I've been able to write more in the past few days than I have in months because I opened up the topic so broadly.

As much as I am afraid at times to bare my soul with certain things, what if in doing so I help someone feel like they aren't alone?

I don't have the capacity in myself at this point to have a book published. In reality, I'm not sure that will be something I ever do (even tho it's been a dream of mine.) So, I do this. Write bluntly and honestly about life. The crappy bits and the good bits. I let my voice be heard, even if I'm the only one coming back to read what I wrote.

I went so far as to create a random Instagram account as well @livehappynesslife
I am posting whatever makes me giggle or feel happy. So there will be a bit of randomness and less philosophy when it comes to what shows up. It's legit #happynesslife

JimmyJane Form 2 Review: Did I Experience Dynamic Stimulation?

During my quest to find a vibrator that I could use during "sexy time" with my hubby, I came across the JimmyJane Form 2 vibrator. It's a hand-held vibrator that is small enough in size to be useful in multiple positions and not get in the way.

Being that I enjoy bright, fun colors, I chose the hot pink option. I guess there are times when I could be classified as a "girly girl" and when there is a vibrant shade of fuchsia to be had, I have to have it. Not to mention it is considered a body-safe and Phthalate-free toy!
The Form 2 has two motors that make up the device, one in each ear. The instructions give you a variety of ideas on how to use the vibrator for your lower half or even on your nipples. You can hold the vibe in place or squeeze the ears. It's also waterproof, so you can enjoy tub time with a little stimulation if you so desire.
I also chose this vibrator due to it having a travel lock, which I feel is a handy thing to have if one were to go o…

Zumio X Review: Did I Join The Pleasure Revolution?

Not too long after creating my Instagram page, I found myself scouring through new pages to follow, one of which was for Zumio.

Zumio is a company that has created an extremely intriguing toy that claims that it can help you find new pleasure centers with pinpoint stimulation.

Also, it's completely different from any of the other toys I have because it has a SpiroTip, which rotates instead of vibrates for a completely different sensation.

This sounded extremely interesting and worthwhile to try, however, to make things complicated they offer a Zumio X and a Zumio S (Sensitive). I went back and forth over which one to try. Both do the exact same thing, but the Zumio S is designed to be less intense due to the silicone covering on the tip. I read several reviews comparing the two, but ultimately what had me choose the Zumio X was the longer tip. I figured that if it was longer it would be easier for me to utilize when having sex with Hubby rather than a shorter tip that might not r…

Rocks-Off EveryGirl Rabbit Vibrator: Is It What I Want? Is It What I Need?

Today I will give you my candid take on the beautiful EveryGirl Rabbit Vibrator from the company called Rocks-Off.

This vibrator came from SheVibe and it comes in three colors, of which I chose the teal one because it seemed the happiest!

Out of the toys I have experimented with, I had only one rabbit-style vibrator to my name, and I didn't pick it out myself. I didn't dislike the vibrator I already had, but I did wonder what was out there and if there could be some improvements to the style that I have yet to experience. I also wanted to try out something that was under $200, because not everyone is able to spend oodles of cash on a sex aid. The EveryGirl Rabbit Vibrator comes in at $82.99 (right now at SheVibe it's $59.99!) In my opinion, a very respectable price point for a rabbit-style vibrator that looks well made and has an independent dual-motor function.
What I was most excited about when it came to the vibrator was the dual-motor function that allows the clitoral…
