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!

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.

unnamed copyThe 2015 Founder’s Kit Sale, (also known as THE BIGGEST KIT SALE OF THE YEAR) kicks off TODAY, Dec 16th, at 12:00PM EST and if you blink, you might just miss it!  This Founder’s Day sale offers up starter kits for 75% OFF and they usually sell out in 24-48 hours.  Seriously. We’ve broken the corporate website every time.  If you’ve ever thought about joining Pure Romance and taking control of your own destiny – now is the time!

And what better time to start your business than right before the huge January product launch & just in time for those ​New ​Year​’s resolutions. (You keep all of those resolutions, right?)

Work Pure Romance full time, part-time, or any time! YOU are the boss so you set the hours! Have a family function and can’t party next weekend? That’s cool. Party during the week when you’re free. Wanna have some extra cash for your vacation? Easy. Collect some customer orders & go hang with some fun girls while earning some dough. Decided you’d rather work for yourself and have full control instead of in an office working towards someone else’s dream?? Hello, welcome to my world. I quit my full time job at an advertising agency & couldn’t be happier!

Here are a few thing you may be thinking…

  • “But I don’t have any money!”​ — Right, and this is the problem I’m going to help you fix. Our average consultant earns $250 PER PARTY ​in ​profit.
  • “But I don’t have any time!” — Well, good. Because you only have to do $200 in sales every 60 days to stay active, which is one party a month.
  • “But I don’t know anyone!” — Totally fixable. Do you want to go through your whole life not knowing people, not making connections? Or do you want me to show you ways to use your business to connect with your community and get involved?
  • “But what if I’m not good at it?” — Then you stop doing it ​, write your kit purchase off on taxes,​ and ​use all the goodies in your kit ​to smell like a pheromone​-y goddess until it all runs out and then you host a party and I get you more for free.
  • “But what if I can’t book parties?” — Our parties are ACTUAL parties with actual laughs and a presentation & interaction. They’re fun to host, you can ask my customers​. You’ll be okay.​
Trying to figure out which kit is best for you?  
Pick the biggest starter kit you can comfortably afford right now! You can be successful with any of the kits. The smallest one requires less investment up front, but you will pay more in the long term as you will have a lower buying discount & have fewer items for​ your demonstration. Our most popular business kits are larger investments, but they allow for quicker profit earning! The Deluxe kit is the BEST VALUE and allows you to have items for your demo table AND inventory to sell, all while earning your kit price back faster with your 45% buying discount. The Premium kit contains lots of inventory so you’ll be well-equipped for your first parties and it also earns you a 45% buying discount.
Pure Romance Founder Kit Sale
LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN FOR YOU. What could an extra $200 a month do for you? What about $200 a week? Or maybe $1,000 a week? Take charge of your earning potential & don’t let anyone else determine YOUR worth.

 Are your ready to take control of your life?  Wanna get paid to party?  Let’s talk!  Who knows… you may even want to become your own boss and join my team.

10 Reasons to Own a Business

Own your business
This is me working from a hotel room in Atlanta while traveling with my hubby!

That’s it.  I QUIT!  No, wait, not my awesome Pure Romance job… the job I was doing before.  You know, the 40-50 hour/week office type job.  I was tired of working overtime and sacrificing life outside of the job just to make money for someone else.  I was ready to work for ME.   You hear it all of the time, but the benefits of owning your own business are real.  I wanted to experience life and to be a success because I chose to be, not because someone else thought I was worthy.  I took the plunge to work for myself with Pure Romance.  Maybe you should too…  Here are my top ten reasons why starting your own business is worth it.

#1  I am in control of my own destiny.

You could say that I am a type “A” personality.  A lot of people who start a business are.  I was tired of having my level of success being directed by someone else.  I was frustrated working in an environment where the culture and future of the company was not in my control.  People rely on their incomes for stability, and that stability makes a difference in their happiness at home. By making my own decisions about how best to operate day-to-day, I choose the office culture and direct the future of my business.  Nobody else gets to decide how my career and income will advance.

#2 You can find your own Work/Life balance.

One of the perks of owning your own home-based business is the flexibility that comes with it, whether that be working from wherever you want, working in your pjs, etc.  I love the summer days here in Lexington, Kentucky and enjoy sitting with my laptop and phone on the back porch, sipping some tea and watching my dog run around the yard.  I make my own schedule, allowing me the time to enjoy some of the most important things in life!

#3 You get to choose who you work with.

Owning a business isn’t the easiest thing in the world.  I’m not claiming that.  I like surrounding myself with positive people who give me the confidence and optimism needed to keep moving forward. You have to weed out the people that put out negative vibes.  I’m always looking for women who are self-starters with a hunger for success.  If you are driven and want to be your own boss, we need to talk!

#4 You reap the benefits of risks and effort.

With most businesses, there will be risks and rewards.  And as you know, the bigger the risk the bigger the reward… or potential for negative consequences.  The beauty of the being your own boss is that you are the one that gets to choose the amount and type of wager.  With what I do with Pure Romance, the risk is actually VERY minimal.  The startup cost can be recouped within a very short amount of time.  I’m talking 1 to 3 parties, that’s it!   As long as I put in the effort and hustle, the money comes in.  How much effort/reward I get is totally up to me.  PLUS, I have a ton of fun doing this job which is a HUGE reward in itself.

#5 You get to challenge yourself.

Are you tired of the same old routine?  I rarely experience the same type of day twice.   Between a constant rotation of new clients, and new experiences with existing ones, my job never gets old. Every day I learn something new.  Whether it’s about a product, or my customers, or about running my business more efficiently, the challenge of continuously working to make myself better never ends.  And once you’ve met some of the most successful women associated with Pure Romance, you realize quickly that even the sky is not the limit!

#6 You get to follow your passion.

Yup, I LOVE what I do.  It’s simple.  We educate, we empower, and we entertain women.  The products I offer are fun and exciting, and I get to interact with great new girls every week.

#7 You learn to get things done FAST.

When I quit my regular job to run my own Pure Romance business, one of the main reasons I did so was to have more TIME.  Time to spend with my family.  Time to enjoy my hobbies.  Time to do all of the things that make me happy.  The more efficient I can be with my business, the more money I make because the business is streamlined.  And all of that efficiency equates to more free time!

#8 You get to connect with your clients.

There are few things that get entrepreneurs as excited as when they get to interact with their customers. Rather than hiding behind a large corporate structure, small business owners thrive on dealing one-on-one with their best clients.  And let’s face it, my customers are always happy to see me!  When I show up, the Girls’ Night begins!  Who doesn’t want that in their life?

#9 You get to give back to your community.

Many businesses give back to the communities that support them.  This can be in the form of donations, events, etc… But for me and my business, it’s EDUCATION and HEALTH SUPPORT for women.  Pure Romance works closely with The Patty Brisben Foundation for Women’s Sexual Health. Together we seek to support research and education initiatives that involve women’s sexual health and well-being. Being able to educate women about their own bodies presents the opportunity for empowerment and guides them down the path of more confident and fulfilling intimate relationships.


#10 You feel pride in building something on your own.

This business is yours.  Nobody handed it to you.  Sure, there is help along the way but the success of it is up to you.  You are the boss.  You are the most valuable asset and the driving force behind the business.  But the best feeling?  When you get those comment cards with nice remarks about how good you are at what you do.  Or even better, when a client tells all of their friends about you and brags about your success.  THAT is a great feeling!
