Money, Money, and the Holidays

Money is one of the biggest stressors at the holidays. Regardless of whether you are in a relationship or not, it is still a time of financial expectations - office parties, giving gifts to family and friends, holiday gathers with friends, and so on. Here are four tips for couples to take the stress out of holiday spending:

  • Cook together at home once a week. Create food from scratch and share the steps from start to finish, prepping to cleaning. If you each have “normal” roles in the kitchen – he does the “manly meat” and you do the veggies plan to switch it up so you each can broaden your skills.
  • Don’t always go out for date night – plan a fun night in. If you want something fun plan a Wii challenge and make a wager between the two of you. If you’re looking for something social, invite friends over for a potluck or do a progressive dinner.
  • Make a budget and track it. Use an app on your phone or a spreadsheet on the fridge – just make sure you record what you’re spending. Ideally all of your spending would be budgeted, but focus on just your spending at the holidays – happy hours, gifts, parties – write it all down and plan how much you think it will cost. Then stick to it and hold each other accountable.
  • Make a no-electronics challenge. Commit to turning off electronic devices from when you get home at night until bedtime a couple nights a week. Connected couples communicate more and those who communicate more are less stressed about money.

Taking Care of Yourself For The Holidays

November. The holidays are almost here (heck, the stores have been decorated since September) and we all know what that means - lots of doing things but not a lot of time to sit and enjoy the season. This month I wanted to share with you some tips on how to stay connected with yourself and your partner this holiday season. It’s hard to make the time for yourself but that is really important to survive, and thrive, through the end of the year.

Here are 5 ideas to get your started thinking about how to best take care of yourself

  • Skip out of work a little early and go get a blow-out.
  • Sleep in on Saturday morning.
  • For every happy hour you attend plan a corresponding workout or yoga session.
  • Spend some time at the spa getting waxed and trimmed – feel pretty all over and top it off with a pedicure
  • Buy some new lingerie – the kind that makes you feel pretty.

Post your own tips below in the comments – and share this post with your friends if you think they could use a reminder. 

Arouse Passion and Enrich Relationships

The mission of what I do is to arouse passion, but what does that mean to arouse passion? And HOW do you arouse passion anyway?

Arouse means to evoke or awaken. Therefore to arouse passion means to evoke or awake the passion within you or within your relationship. If a relationship has lost its passion then we must first evoke it within ourselves. We have all heard the jokes about sex between married couples losing some of its fun.

This is one of the reasons I started my business with Passion Parties. I wanted to be able to bring a line of products that would first and foremost arouse self passion which then would open up lines of communication and pleasure in relationships. Sex is one of the most intimate conversations you can have with your partner. Simply talking about sex and trying new things will often ignite a new fire of passion. It will sure keep you cozy this fall.

Cozy Up to Romance

Fall is a beautiful time to warm up a cozy romance. Trees are changing colors, leaves are falling so why not fall in love this fall. To enhance your romantic energy, bring in some natural fall foliage into your home. Make center pieces with acorns, pine cones, dried flowers, leaves and branches. Nature naturally enhances romance.

Red is the color of passion, therefore try bringing in some red flowers or change out some picture in your bedroom to have more red. Also, changing out bedding to warmer fall colors could enhance the romantic energy. When you are warm and cozy in your home and the romance energy is turned up. Whether it is by yourself or with a lover, light some candles, turn on soft music and dance. Feel you body moving. When you are vibrating romantic energy, romance will be drawn to you. If it doesn’t show up right away, don’t give up. It just means it is on its way. You will attract the romance you desire.

Truth or Dare?

Truth: 40 million people are on dating websites now.

Dare:   If you are single and looking for a relationship, we dare you to get on a site if you are not already on one. If you are in a relationship, we dare you and your partner to write profile for each other and exchange them. See what you would say about each other. (not intended for actually posting)

Truth: There are 100 single women to every 86 single men.

Dare: If you are single, ask a man out. If you are in a relationship, ask him out for a date and pay for it.

Truth: 51% of people say flattery is the best way to attract someone

Dare: Compliment a good looking stranger.

Truth: Only 23% of people say the best way to let someone know you are interested in them is by passing word through a friend.

Dare: If you have a crush on someone, tell him or her yourself.

Truth: 63 % of people found their mate through a friend.

Dare: Ask your friends to set you up on blind dates.

Truth: 52% of women say they are too busy to meet other singles.

Dare: Take a mid week day off and have some fun. Don’t think about work or look at your phone all day.

Be a kid again and play truth or dare with your mate. Who knows what you will end up finding out or doing silly.

Living Passionately!

For the First Time

Do you remember the first time you said “I Love You” to your mate? What did it feel like? Did you have butterflies in your stomach? Was there a level of intimacy you had not experienced up until that moment? Could you feel the excitement for days playing it over and over in your mind? Did it bring you closer in your relationship?

Doing something for the first time can be exhilarating. Your senses are heightened when you are doing something for the first time. You can reach new levels of excitement and vulnerability in your relationship when you enter an unknown.

Here are some ideas of something new to experience in your relationship that maybe you haven’t done before.

  1. Take dance lessons. There is Salsa, Ballroom, Hip Hop, Country line-dancing and more. If you are already a dancer, try one you haven’t done with your partner before.
  2. Play Laser tag. This could be a fun way to get exercise and kick up the adrenalin.
  3. Play at a playground. Sometimes being young again can bring some youthful energy back into your relationship if it is getting stagnant.
  4. Have a water gun fight in the back yard. Water with a side of laughter can cool off any hot summer day.
  5. See a movie or a concert in a park. Many cities have theatre in the park evenings. You can pack a picnic, pick up a bottle of wine and head to the park.
  6. Stay at a hotel in your city that you have not been to before. Seeing new sites can open your eyes to the love that is in front of you.
  7. Go lingerie shopping together. You can ignite passion by going shopping for what you would wear in the bedroom without being in the bedroom. He will be thinking about you in the piece for a lifetime.
  8. Go drive racecars. It’s the perfect way to speed up a relationship that is in neutral.
  9. Learn to speak a new language together and practice when you are at home. You will be able to see your mate in a new light.
  10. Once you have learned a new language, plan a new vacation spot. Having something to look forward to drive enthusiasm in a relationship.

Fathers' Day

Ladies, the best gifts you could give the father of your children this year are priceless. You can make him feel special past the breakfast in bed and the new tie that will hang forgotten in his closet. You could actually give gifts that he will value and appreciate and that will give back. They may seem simple but trust me, give it 30 days and you will have a different man.

 1.Let him know he’s important to you. Men thrive on approval and compliments. They have a need to be approved by their mate. When approval and compliments fade so does the relationship. Let him know that he is important to you by complimenting all the things he does that you love. It may seem weird to him at first if he is not used to it, but don’t stop.

 2.Pay attention to where he is winning. Notice areas that he is doing a great job - maybe in health, work or with the kids. Wherever he feels as though he is exceeding make sure he knows you notice where he is winning.

 3. Foster an atmosphere of laughter in your home. Look for ways to laugh together. Do you have funny pet names for each other? Do you wrestle? Do you play games? When was the last time you had a really great laugh with your mate? Think about what used to make you two laugh. Bring it back. Even if it was eighties style.

 4. Give him special time with you apart from the children. If you are not doing this it could be decaying your relationship. There are no excuses ladies. "I don’t have family" and "no one to watch the kids" are not excuses. There are plenty of moms in your area that would like a night out with their honey too. You could work out a trade. There are solutions everywhere.

 5. It is a must to give your man time to unwind after he gets home from work. If you allow him the space to empty his pockets, get undressed and decompress before you start asking questions or making requests, your evenings will be much more enjoyable.

5 ways women can create the Romance

romanceWhat women want for romance and what men want for romance is a little different. As a woman, enjoy how you can inspire romance in your relationship.

1. Be Confident-No matter what your shape or size is, men cannot resist a confident woman.

2. Do Something with him he loves-If he likes movies, watch a movie with him. If he likes baseball, buy tickets for you two to go to a game. If he likes music go see a band with him.

3. Smell like fresh laundry. It may seem funny but some men love perfume and some are allergic to it. If you know he like a certain other perfume, put it on.

4. The way to a mans heart is through his stomach. Find out what his favorite meal is and find a way to duplicate the recipe. Or if you have been together for a long time and you know what it is. Cook it and serve in a “special” outfit.

5. Listen and compliment- Just as much as you want to be listen to so does he. And if he has shared something he is proud of make sure you tell him you are proud of him to. The return on that investment is priceless!

Why women cheat and my thoughts

While I was doing some research for some posts I found it astonishing how and why women cheat.

Robert Weiss wrote an article “Why Women Cheat” I wasn’t sure if I agreed and I had some comments to make.

She feels underappreciated, neglected, or ignored. A woman who feels more like a housekeeper, financial provider, or nanny than a wife or girlfriend is more vulnerable to finding an external situation that brings attention and appreciation for who she is rather than the functions she performs.

Instead of cheating, what else could she do? My thoughts are, if I feel like the housekeeper, financial provider, or nanny then I must take responsibility. Stop! Stop taking care of the house. Stop providing financial. Stop being the nanny. In my experience men really just don’t know. When you share with him what you need to start doing those things again he will usually provide.  If he won’t he doesn’t deserve you.

She craves intimacy. More so than men, women feel valued and connected to their relationship partner through non-sexual emotional interaction such as touching, kissing, cuddling, gift-giving, being remembered, and most of all meaningful communication.

Most men are really good at this! When they forget, because they will, gently remind him what you need and he is happy to provide. Lady's, ask for what you need and receive it when he gives it!

She is bored and/or lonely. Women who find themselves alone at home for long periods of time, perhaps when caring for young children or even after children are grown and gone, can feel that their lives lack meaning, and they may use casual sex or deeper romantic affairs to fill the void.

Join a home-based business, women’s group or a mastermind. Do something that gives you purpose other then being a wife or mom. It will ignite a passion in you that will be more fulfilling and have less self-judgment.

She never feels fully loved and appreciated. Some women have unrealistic expectations about what a long-term spouse or partner should offer them emotionally and in other ways. Those who are more narcissistic and emotionally immature may expect a significant other to meet their every single need, and also to be a mind-reader in terms of knowing what those needs are.

See a therapist. There is nothing wrong with you at all. You can start to understand yourself better and with that will come is a feeling of fulfilling self-love.
She has an intimacy disorder. Early childhood trauma and/or sexual abuse often lead women (and men) in adult life to problems with addictive sex and/or serial cheating. Such women repeatedly seek emotional intensity rather than relational intimacy.

A woman can seek care on this and it is not issue and it doesn’t have to be for you. See previous response.

The bottom line ladies is as a women you have more power then you think. What you think, feel and behave has more of an impact then you think. Most women are waiting for the man to change and do something different. If you go first, chances are he will follow suit. Just be patient. Men are as fast to change as we are!

Spring Time: Plant Romance in Your Spring Garden

Spring time brings about newness in the air. New flowers are blooming. It is the most popular time of the year for new marriages to start. And it could be the time to build an old romance. Sometimes it is up to the lady to get the romance growing again. So here are some ideas to plant romance in your spring garden.

1. Enjoy a candle lit dinner on the patio. Wipe of the layer of winter dust and dine out. If you don’t have a patio, don’t fall into a slump - a balcony or roof top will breathe just as much romance.

2. Go Swimming! Have you ever been to a hot spring? There are more in this country then you may know about. See if there is one in your area. Adding water to your romance will help it grow.

3. Try a new dance. Go take dance lessons for a dance the neither of you knows. Doing something new for the first time together buds all kinds of energizing feelings.

4. Be kids again. Go to a drive in, play miniature golf or go to an arcade. Sometimes adults forget to have fun.

5. Enjoy a picnic and an outdoor concert or movie. Check your local area for local concerts or movies. Outdoor movies and shows are a new trend. I bet there is one in your area.

Having Sex Dreams? What do they mean?

A friend of mine was sharing with me last week about a dream she had about having sex with her new boss. She was so disturbed by because she was not at all attracted to the boss. We decided to look it up and find out the meaning. What I discovered is that sex dreams are very rarely ever even about sex. They are many more underlying meanings. We did a little research and found the most common sex dreams. Have you had one of them? Sex with an Ex? Chances are this means you are still processing unfinished feelings.

Incestuous Sex? Dreams that involve a parent could have something to do with transitioning into adulthood. If they include a family member, it could be telling you something about your feelings of acceptance, forgiveness or longing to be closer.

Celebrity Sex- Dreams of sleeping with stars and celebrities could mean you desire to attain more fame, fortune, recognition or bolster in your social status.

Sex with a Stranger-This one is exciting because it could mean about balancing the male/female aspects of you and can mean fortuitous signs of personal growth.

Rape - Apparently it is quite common to have these dreams. It is one to pay attention to because if you have never been raped it could mean that someone in your life is “raping” you of your self-esteem and self-worth.

Cheating - No need to flip out on this one. If you are the one doing the cheating, you may be guilty about something. If you are being cheating on you may want to look in the mirror, it sometimes has something to do with your own insecurities.

Sex with a friend’s mate-Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you are going to run off with your friend’s husband. All it may mean is that you admire a quality of your friend’s mate and may want to adopt it for yourself or in your relationship.

Weird Genitalia- Have you dreamt you have weird things growing out of weird places? This may mean is that you are looking to be creative in the bedroom – give yourself permission to let loose.

Still wondering what my friend’s dream might mean? We found out that sometimes sex with a boss could have a “need to please” meaning. Guess my friend is going to have to work a little harder at work to get rid of these dreams...

The sweet romance of February

The sweet romance of February has come and has gone again. Has the romance in your relationship left with it? Ever wonder how to keep the spirit of Valentine's Day with you for the rest of the year?

It is the power of suggestion that gets the flame burning. So - how can you keep the flame burning the rest of the year? Here are some ways to keep the flame burning all year with the power of suggestion.

1. Suggest some intrigue: Slip him a loving or sexy note in a spot he will find, such as the suit pocket he puts his phone in or under the next pair of underwear from his drawer. Describe in detail what you are wearing or not wearing under your clothes. After you know he has seen the note then send him a picture while he is at work with what you described. When you feel sexy, he will notice.

2. Suggest a different perspective: Play dress up to bring out your fun and adventurous side. Go out and buy a wig that is a different hairstyle and color then your own. There is so much you can do with this one -just make sure the kids are playing at neighbors when he gets home!

Understanding the Science of Love during the most Loving time of Year

hol8With Valentine’s Day around the corner understanding the science behind one of our strongest emotions can help us maximize the effectiveness of the steps we take to coney our love to those that mean the most.

What causes the emotion of “Love”?

Charles Darwin suggested that emotions have a reals world existence that is visibly expressed in the behaviors of humans and animals, although in his time they were believed to be some left over imperfection from. Emotions are pattern recognition signals from your brain which contains specific neurochemical systems creating feelings based off of memories related to our five senses: sight, touch, hearing, smell, and taste. Love originates in the brain. As our bodies are reintroduced to these senses we feel a reaction based on previous experiences and situations.

How many times do we will find ourselves among the smell of fresh baked cookies and someone comments on how they are reminded of home with mom or grandma during their favorite holiday? The memories aroused with this simple sense of smell can bring an instant feeling of comfort and warmth where they were placed in a safe, familiar setting as a child.

When stirring the emotion of love in our partner or spouse we can find it most dominant when relating to a strong memory or experience. When we trigger the senses related to that experience we can bring about feeling of relaxation, importance, desire, arousal, and appreciation towards or him or her that provided it to them. Depending on what is most meaningful to your partner, and to your relationship together your love can shine through as you plan out the ideal Valentine’s Day gifts and events.

Here are some ideas for maximizing the emotion of love in two of our favorite types of partners, the hopeless romantic and the adventure-seeker:

When it comes to the word orgasm

thumb-host-partyWhen it comes to the word orgasm, the possibilities of topics become endless. In our last blog we discussed the four different types of orgasms' a woman can have. This time we explore different activities, events and emotions that bring on that orgasmic feeling.

Have you ever experienced an orgasm while working out? These orgasms are called "Coregasm".
Have you ever noticed at the gym that women tend to work out at the leg machines or participate in classes that focus on the mid and lower body, while men tend to lean toward arm exercises? According to Victoria Zdrok, Ph.D., a sex therapist and author of The Anatomy of Pleasure, "A lot of women require a buildup of tension in their legs before they can achieve the release of orgasm," she said. "So, when a woman exercises, the release of endorphins and dopamine, which are necessary for orgasm, combined with the tension in the abs and lower extremities, can cause the clitoral stimulation."

Unleash Your Inner Diva

Unleashing your inner diva isn't about going wild and crazy; it's about embracing your true sexual self. It's about attitude, building on the confidence you have within you which comes from a positive self image. Self-empowerment lights our internal fire, making us glows and improves our relationships. Being a Goddess is not dependent on looking like the girls in the magazines. It’s about accepting yourself; wrinkles, muffin top, sagging arms and all! “The sexiest curve on a woman is her smile.”

Here are some tips on how to let your inner diva show on the outside:

Reignite Your Passion

After the initial passion and excitement of lust has faded, sex can start to feel routine and predictable for some couples. It's perfectly normal for passion to decline in long-term relationships causing you to feel frustrated by your humdrum life together. Don't worry, you're not alone! For most couples the desire, longing, and passion they felt at the beginning of their relationship usually decreases in intensity over time. Fortunately, in a good relationship love doesn't decrease; it just transforms into emotions of intimacy and friendship. But don’t fret; you can get the passion back!

The Big "O"

Orgasms vary from person to person; some orgasm’s are an explosive, amazing rush of sensations, while others are fainter and less intense. The differences in intensity of orgasms can be attributed to numerous factors; physical, such as fatigue and length of time since last orgasm, as well as psycho-social, including mood, relation to partner, activity, expectations, and feelings about the experience. It is important for a woman to know and understand her body; understanding that if one way is not successful in achieving the ultimate climax, there are other options. Women can achieve four basic kinds of orgasms specific to the parts of their anatomy that are being stimulated. Here are the four kinds of female orgasms and the differences between them.
