Life Is A Gift- So Live It!

The frailty of life is looming over me right now as I sit here to write this. How precious life is hit me after my dad died from a tragic accident and since then, I've been living with a cloud hanging over my head.

I take each day as it comes, but I can't separate myself from the mental anxiety that creeps up when I hear of something tragic. I'm paying attention to the ages in the obituaries and feeling a sense of dread when I see ages 60 and below.

People drying from various causes from heart attack to ALS.
People finding out that they have cancer.
People having a brain aneurysm.

Nothing screams "Life is a gift" like seeing it being ripped away from others.
What are you going to do?

I have never been more serious in my mission to live what is left of my life to the fullest. To do whatever it is that my heart wants to do. Go on adventures. See different places. Try different foods. Not allow myself to say "Someday" so much. Obviously, I will be living life responsibly because I have a job and I can't go off willynilly. However, I refuse to allow myself to say "no" based on fear and uncertainty.

I want to experience passion.
I want to feel pleasure.
I want to see places, do things, and enjoy the fact that my body allows me to do these things right now.

I don't want to be sitting in a chair or a bed, loathing myself for taking life for granted and not doing.
I know I may die with some mild regrets, but I don't want to die full of regrets.
No more denying myself. Scaring myself out of ideas. I'm not going to hold out hope on reincarnation to come back and do whatever it is I didn't do, because really? This world is a scary-ass place and I'm not sure I'd want to come back to it. So now is the time to do what I want to do. Live how I want to live. Be who I want to be.

I'm grateful for the health I have and what better way to show appreciation than to live?
We are, in reality, dying a little each and every day. Life is a game of roulette- you don't know what will get. At any time, there could be a bullet. It could be quick or it could be long and drawn out. The thing is, you never know and you can't let the fear of the unknown hang over your head.

Now, I'm not saying to be irresponsible and quit your job to travel the world- the reality is you have to be a responsible human. I'm saying that you can give yourself permission to allow yourself to live a bit more than you do now. Maybe it's not beating yourself up for watching your favorite movie over and over on your day off because you love it. Perhaps it's buying the book you've been curious about and making time to read it instead of letting it sit. If you feel drawn to go for a walk, go for a walk! Stop telling yourself you'll look silly being outside. Maybe you've always wanted a designer bag, so make it a point to save some money each week so you can purchase it without stressing over bills. Have you always wanted to go on a trip? What stopped you? Fear? Finances? Talk to someone and figure that shit out. I know of so many folks who have a limited income who managed to save up to take a short vacation so they could see something new. There are ways, you just need to gather information and do what works for you.

Life is a gift and it's worth living while you're able to fully immerse yourself. Be good to yourself: your mind, body, and soul. Take care of yourself. Move your body, eat nourishing food (and allow a treat here and there!) Read books or watch t.v. shows that thrill you and make you think. Tell the people important to you how much they mean to you. Show love. Give hugs. Pleasure yourself. Help yourself be the best you that you can be. Don't take living for granted.

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…

Pipedream 3Some Rock N Ride Review

When I was given the opportunity to review the 3Some Rock N Ride, I was stoked! I'm really intrigued with finding the perfect DP toy that I could use solo or with partnered sex.


This luxury toy sounded like it would be a great mix of what I had already experienced with the 3Some Total Ecstasy, but with slightly different shapes and potential improvements.

The Rock N Ride would have a neat little handle to allow you to position the toy and make it move without having to just grind on it.

I liked how the anal stimulator was smaller and tapered, because not every time do I want to insert a fuller anal plug right at the get-go, even if it does feel good once in. Sometimes I'm more in the mood for anal teasing instead of the filled up feeling, and the beaded anal plug would do just that.

The G-spot stimulator is of similar shape to the 3Some Total Ecstasy, so I knew it would feel good without question.

What I was most excited about was the ribbed clitoral stimulator mound, as I fe…

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…
