Kick Ass at Being Single

Kick ass at being single

So now that Valentine’s Day is over, I’ve had some time to reflect on the different reactions to the holiday that I saw among friends and customers.  My single friends had some widely varying responses to their thoughts on their relationship status. Many tended towards self-pity and even anger at being single, but others… oh man, they absolutely ROCKED the single lifestyle.  To them, being single is “living the dream!”  I liked this approach much better and decided to take a few notes to share with you about how you can kick ass at being single.

Don’t apologize for being awesome.

The basic idea about rocking your singlehood is to never apologize for your status.  Your singlehood is about figuring out what makes you tick, all while enjoying the luxury of putting yourself first.  Not only will this make you stronger and more confident,  but once you’re tied down, you may never get the chance to live the single life dream again!

Focus on your friends.

While spending time with a significant other is amazing, it can often cut into your time with friends.  Now’s your chance to take advantage of having more free time to create tons of amazing memories with some of the people you love most and not have to worry about putting stress on a romantic relationship. I love getting together with my girls for dinners, drinks, or catching a movie.  Even better, get the ladies together for a Pure Romance party for an amazing girls’ night in!

Put YOU first.

I think my husband nailed this one on the head before he met me.  He would come home from work, play video games all night, drink beer, and eat pizza.  When he wanted to see a movie, he did.  When he wanted to sleep late on the weekend, he did.  He LOVED the bachelor lifestyle in his tiny little apartment (he just loved me a lot more.)  When you’re flying solo, putting yourself first isn’t selfish—it’s a rare opportunity to explore new things and to do all of the activities that may be limited once you are spending time with a significant other.

See the World!

Travel.  The world is your oyster!  You can go anywhere, anytime you want.  Go with friends, or go alone and make friends along the way.  I am always amazed by two of my good friends that go on amazing adventures alone just because they can.  One of them even wants to backpack around in Australia with no plans… she just wants to enjoy life as it comes!

Live your BEST life.

Dream big and plan out how you want your life to go! Satisfied with your career? Awesome—go for that amazing promotion that’ll take you to the next level. Think you might want to go back to school? Now’s your chance! Whatever it is, do something to enrich your life: enroll in art classes, give back to the community, or take up yoga.

Play the field.

Boys aren’t the only ones who can date around!  Play the field, flirt with a stranger, and work your magic on the dance floor—singlehood is YOUR time to shine!  Enjoy all of the different types of people who turn you on and interest you.  It doesn’t necessarily need to be a string of one-night stands, but there are plenty of people out there to entertain you and enjoy life with you.  And with all of the technology available today, it’s never been easier!  Download the Tinder app, message your old crush, and flirt your way to free drinks—no commitments, no judgments. You’re single, and fabulous.

Give me the goods!

If you are ready to see all of the Pure Romance line and have an amazing time with friends – just book your very own Pure Romance party!  I am in the Lexington, Kentucky area and have a few open dates for the next couple of months.  Contact me asap to get your preferred date on the books.  Parties are free, fun, educational, and my hostesses earn some AWESOME rewards!  Who knows… you may even want to become your own boss and join my team.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her

PURE ROMANCE Gift Ideas for Her

Finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift idea for the girl in your life can be a challenge.  Don’t let the challenge become a stress, that takes the fun out of the holiday!  Remember that whatever you give your woman, just make sure that it comes from the heart.  She will appreciate it.  I promise. That being said… I have compiled a list of gifts that any girl would love to receive if you decide to pass on the traditional flowers and candy.  (Those can be great.  But let’s get a little creative!) Whether for THE ONE, or a friend with benefits, or a girl you just started dating, we’ve got a few ideas you can’t go wrong with.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Women

For the Girl who enjoys a bubble bath:

valentine's day gifts for herI highly recommend the Pure Romance Love Story collection of bath products!  Excape Bubble Bath allows her to escape from stress! She can sink into a tub of sweet-scented foaming bath bubbles, rejuvenate her spirit, and let the day’s cares float away.  Splash energizing body wash is a pH-balanced spa treatment when combined with Body Silk skin moisturizer.  She will feel great, and I’m sure that will benefit BOTH parties…

For the Closet-Coder:

valentine's day gifts for herSimple yet thoughtful, the Morse Code necklace from artist Julia Szendrei is a great Valentine’s Day gift and a beautiful piece of everyday jewlery. The gemstones are interspaced with 14K gold beads to spell “XOXO” in Morse Code, while the delicate gold chain takes the backseat.  Most people won’t notice the significance, but the two of you will always know and that is where the fun comes in.

For the Active Girl:

valentine's day gifts for womenThe Bellabeat LEAF is a beautifully designed health tracker that allows you to monitor your activity, sleep quality, and menstrual cycle. It syncs with your smartphone so you can see instant statistics, will give you notifications when you haven’t moved around much, and can even be set as an alarm clock.  I never go anywhere without mine. PLUS, it doesn’t look like the traditional activity tracker – it’s pretty!

For the Girl with cold feet:

valentine's day gift ideasI think these are perfect for lounging around the house, but many girls are happy to wear them out around town.  TOMS slippers combine the style she loves with a cozy, faux shearling interior.  If she’s always complaining about her chilly apartment, you know what to do.  Plus, I don’t know too many guys that enjoy when a girl rubs her cold feet on them.

For the Power Player:

valentine's day gifts for herThis may be one of the hottest trends around.  Women have started skipping the skimpy ladies watch, and are electing to wear the larger men’s watch instead. It shows confidence and POWER. If nothing else, it can be a great conversation starter. If you already have a collection of high-end watches and are willing to part with one, it would be an excellent personal gift to show how much you care.  If your budget is a little tighter, you can find a lot of great looking watches that mimic the look and feel of a high-end Rolex or Tag Heuer.

She enjoys a good massage:

Pure Romance Heart MassagerThe Pure Romance Heart Massager is one of my most popular products!  I usually have to stock up on these in bulk because they are so useful.  My husband and I both love these after a tough day of work or after a particularly hard workout at the gym. Use these to soothe your partner’s body, then bring it close to yours.  Activated heat pack warms up to 129 degrees!  The soft outer cover works great on tired skin and muscles, and can be combined with massage oils and creams easily. After use, simply boil in water to reactivate.  Use it again and again!

For the BAD GIRL:

Pure Romance Grey BlindfoldShe’s seen Fifty Shades of Grey and has taken notes.  Take advantage of the situation with the Pure Romance Grey Blindfold.  Feel your other senses come alive when the Grey Blindfold takes away your sight. Slip on the Grey Blindfold, and sexy surprises begin. Plus, it doubles as sleeping mask in case you actually decide to do any sleeping…


If you want your girl to see all of the Pure Romance line and have an amazing time with friends – just have her book her very own Pure Romance party!  I am in the Lexington, Kentucky area and have a few open dates for the next couple of months.  Contact me asap to get your preferred date on the books.  Parties are free, fun, educational, and my hostesses earn some AWESOME rewards!  Who knows… you may even want to become your own boss and join my team.

Look AMAZING in Lingerie!

Lingerie_WebWanna know what one of my hottest selling items has been lately?  It may surprise you… Lingerie!  With a market saturated by large chains specializing in this product, you would imagine that my Pure Romance business wouldn’t do much lingerie volume.  Maybe it’s because us Pure Romance girls know how to make you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.  Read on for tips on how you can looks your best in your least…

Lingerie adds a fun and exciting element to any bedroom encounter- both for the person wearing it AND for the person enjoying the view.  If you really want to get your partner’s temperature to rise, you’ve got to build a closet of lingerie that not only makes you look good, but makes you feel good too.  You can’t just focus on being sexy on the outside, you’ve got to feel sexy and confident on the inside too!

  1. Functional can be FUN!  Unless you are only doing a photo shoot, lingerie needs to be comfortable.  The best pieces of lingerie will be comfortable AND pretty.  If the fit is right, you will look amazing without restricting your movement or breathing.  After all, movement is what you are going for, right?  Make sure that you are getting the right size.  You can use this chart to help figure out the best styles that will fit and flatter your body.  Once you’ve found the fit you love, look for shapes and colors that make you feel the best in your own skin.
  2. Compliment your Assets!  If you’ve ever tried on lingerie in a larger chain store, you know that not all lingerie works for all women.  We are all shaped differently.  And that’s a good thing!  Rest assured that there is a style of lingerie out there that is perfect for you.  Different styles draw attention to different areas of the body, so make sure that you choose a style that highlights the areas of your body that you find the sexiest.  Proud of your luscious curves? Babydoll gowns show off your bust and flatter just about any shape. Think you’ve got an amazing booty? Give your lover a peek of what’s to come with a form-fitting chemise. Considering a jaw-dropping striptease? A black garter slip, revealed after peeling away your everyday layers, can do no wrong. Take this as your lingerie rule of thumb: If you feel amazing, you’ll look amazing, and vice versa!
  3. Put YOURSELF first.  YOU wear the lingerie.  It does not wear you.  If you do not feel sexy and confident in your skimpies, then what is the point?  While it can be a great idea to shop with your significant other and keep their wants in mind, it is most important to please yourself first.  Buy what you love!
  4. CONFIDENT IS SEXY!  Whether you are a guy or a girl… confidence is sexy!  Nothing will boost your confidence like knowing that you look smoking hot in some new lingerie.  This is your time to let your partner know that they hit the jackpot when they met you.  It’s okay to be a little self-conscious, but don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone a bit to show yourself just how amazing you really are.
  5. Don’t make excuses- HAVE FUN!  Don’t talk yourself out of investing in lingerie that will add excitement to your sex life. Too often we hear people second-guess a decision to purchase lingerie because of a fear that it isn’t a wise purchase. Wrong! Good lingerie is an investment in yourself and your confidence … not to mention your sex life!

    Just remember, when you are shopping for lingerie, never forget who you are buying it for! Feeling sexy and confident in every situation is your own personal gift to yourself. Seductive lingerie can give you the chance to feel sexy and bring your wildest fantasies to life. So don’t skimp—allow yourself to treat yourself.

Of course, you could just see all of the Pure Romance line and have an amazing time with friends if you just book your very own Pure Romance party!  I am in the Lexington, Kentucky area and have a few open dates for the next couple of months.  Contact me asap to get your preferred date on the books.  Parties are free, fun, educational, and my hostesses earn some AWESOME rewards!  Who knows… you may even want to become your own boss and join my team.

Growing Old Together

An amazing video has been taking over the internet lately, showing a young couple about to say their vows what they will look like as they age over 60 years with incredibly life-like makeup and prosthetics.  While the physical transformation is mesmerizing, the real effect of the video is in watching the couple fall in love over and over again as they imagine growing old together.  Get your tissues ready… I dare you not to shed tears over this one.

A group on YouTube called FieldDay gives this cute young couple an extreme makeover, aging them from their 20’s, to their 50’s, to their 70’s, and into their 90’s.  The emotional changes these two go through seeing each other in these different age states is BEAUTIFUL.  And the stereotypes that they discuss and imagine their lives will entail at each age is insightful and funny!  Both partners are entertained about how the male ages less gracefully along the way (his eyebrows are quite entertaining.)  It is also very interesting how seeing each other at different ages causes them to even imagine stories that may happen in their lives along the way.

These are real people, experiencing real emotions, about imaginary aging.  And their thoughts about their last words to each other will warm your heart and break it at the same time.  Prepare yourself.  Don’t say I didn’t tell you to bring tissues.

This is one of my favorite things I have seen on the internet lately.  In a digital world filled with screaming goats, laser cats, and Kardashians, it’s refreshing to find something insightful, beautiful, and thought provoking.

Pure Romance is about more than physical pleasure.  Pure Romance is about enhancing your entire relationship, your entire being.  To us, success has never been measured in sales. What we do is bigger than that. Our mission has always been to empower women. To give them a safe environment to learn about sexual health and to give them permission to know their bodies, strengthen their romantic relationships, and to encourage open communication with their healthcare providers. It’s these experiences that have made Pure Romance not just a company, but a movement to enhance the lives of women everywhere.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I did.  If you have any questions about how Pure Romance can enhance your relationship, CALL ME!  Of course, the best way to see all of the great products we offer is by booking your very own Pure Romance Party!  Click here to contact me NOW!  Or maybe you’ve been to a party before and want to become your own boss?  Click here to JOIN MY TEAM!

How to Introduce A Sex Toy Into Your Relationship

Pure Romance Sex Toys

Every relationship is different.  Some are more adventurous than others.  That’s okay.  Maybe you are interested in spicing things up a bit but you aren’t quite sure how to introduce a sex toy into your relationship.  It can be a scary idea, but if you go into it with the right mindset and focus on a strong relationship, you too can turn your bedroom into a playland!  Here are a few tips on how to get started:

Communicate with your partner about your ideas and desires.

Communication is the most essential part of any relationship.  Any issue involving intimacy should be discussed openly to maximize closeness and understanding with your partner.  Your interests and desires in the bedroom are no exception.  Don’t be afraid to express what turns you on.  Don’t hesitate to express your hesitancy with any subject, either.  It can be a little intimidating talking to your partner about it for the first time.  Try making it part of your “pillow talk”, and start with a statement like “I think it would be really sexy if…”

Share the toy shopping process with your partner.

This is both a communicative step with your partner and a FUN thing to do to!  Your new toy needs to be something that you BOTH will like.  This is also a great low-pressure way to break into the subject.  Don’t be afraid to have fun with the process.  If this is your first time using sex toys together, it’s probably a good idea to start small and work your way into it.  Luckily, we have an AWESOME website you can look at together to see a full selection of toys and vibrators that you can both enjoy!  You can also contact me privately and shop directly from my full inventory.  What’s my most popular couples toy?  That would be Jelly Tool Belt.

Start slow with a sensual massage.

A great way to introduce a little “buzz” into your night is to start with a slow and sensual massage. Start with your hands and slowly work the new toy into the mix.  The pulsations will help soothe tired muscles and send you to a state of blissful relaxation. Once the vibrator becomes a regular part of your foreplay, try moving it … lower.  You can really maximize your massage experience with some of our great massage products, too!

Take turns and share your toys.

When using a new toy together, take turns. Half of the fun is SHARING!  Let each person experiment with different hot spots on the other’s body, and guide each other’s hands to the spots that feel best. And keep communicating and checking in with your partner. A simple “Is this good for you?” or “Do you like when I …” can go a long way toward making your experience truly mind-blowing!
