Valentines and Sexy Stuff

valentines-day-date-at-home
In our annual tradition of non-romantic-movie themed Valentine's date nights, I polled the Mom Edit team for their faves and whipped up some really fun ideas if you're staying in this year. Because it's February and no one wants to leave the house - hot popcorn & warm couch > fancy dinner & unsensible shoes. Grab the remote and your bae: we'll tell...

Simple Valentine DIYs

Hey there friends! I don't talk crafts often here at TME, but I adore making cute, simple crafts as gifts...so, I thought I'd round up a few easy ones to share for Valentine's Day. And, I have to be honest, I love how this turned out! It was inspired by a couple of different images I saw online, plus a little...
  Ahh, the day of love. Back in the day (or maybe recently), did you ever have a super awkward Valentine's Day with someone you just started dating? Like, way before the relationship was anywhere near love status and think "dear god, who is this holiday for?" Whew, me neither. ;) Thank goodness those days are gone and I can now cozy up...
While most thoughts in February turn to pinks and reds and roses....I'm looking for something moodier.  Black lace, perhaps, or something in a deep, dark navy - a color whose power is often underestimated. This Valentine's Day I want to curl up somewhere (clad in navy and black, of course) with dim lighting, good drinks, and a certain guy, that after almost 18 years...

Why do I only remember the most romantic day of the year when I'm 'helping' my preschooler address twenty My Little Pony valentines? Maybe it's because I was never that into going out on Valentine's Day - so much pressure to have the best.night.ever. in a crowded restaurant, dressed wildly inappropriately for February's windchill? Uh-uh, girlfriends. Here's a better idea - use the money you...
I've been working on a look for Valentine's Day.   I wanted something pretty and romantic, yet easy.  And while I will always love pink and red, this Valentine's Day I'm leaning to a softly dramatic purple.  It's a universal color (looks amazing with all eye colors), but more forgiving than black, making it easier to apply. I finished the...
  Did you have a happy Valentine's Day?  I wanted to photoshop a plate full of vibrators into this picture (HA!), but my skills aren't that good.  Ah, well.  So.  Let's get down to it.   If you recall, one of the comments on our Forget Flowers: Vibrators article was from VV aka "vibrator virgin": So, I’m a vibrator virgin (LOL) and I...

Forget Flowers: VIBRATORS.

Instead of sending new mamas home from the hospital with tins of formula, a cheap, scratchy diaper bag emblazoned with said formula's logo, and a packet on why breastfeeding is best (hunh??)....I think every new mom should be sent home with a prescription for Premarin Vaginal Cream and a vibrator.  New Mom Sex sucks, and it takes most of us...
What happens when you invite over 15 newish moms (one of whom is an OB), feed them copious amounts of wine and chocolate and tell them that the topic of the day is sex? A glaringly honest, totally cringe-worthy, no-holds-barred discussion. This is exactly what I did a few years ago, when my oldest was roughly a year old.  This wine, chocolate and...
      I discovered this set of books at Joseph Fox bookstore in Philly.  If you are local, it's totally worth a trip.  For the ease of my readers I'm linking to Amazon below, but all of the books could be ordered and shipped from Joseph Fox by calling the store.   Sky High A long, thin book of intricate ink drawings.  Two neighbors...
