Giveaway: “Get Lucky” This St. Patrick’s Day!

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I know you all really want a pot of gold… I’m so I’ve partnered with LifeStyles to give away a pot of gold – in the form of SKYN Condoms. Widely known as “the closest thing to wearing nothing,” SKYN is said by many to provide greater sensation and more comfort than other non-latex and even latex condoms on the market today. Research also shows that 66% of condom users convert to SKYN once they’ve experienced the unique benefits of polyisoprene. I’m giving away a “Get Lucky Prize Pack” which will include LifeStyles SKYN, LifeStyles TURBO (Voted “Best New Condom” by Men’s Health), and LifeStyles a:muse™ His & Hers Pleasure Massagers (which includes a fingertip massager and...

What my fridge says about me (it’s pretty darn freaky!)

How many of you have peeked inside your date’s medicine cabinet? Obviously we all have. But — check this out. There is a better way. Today for How About We, I interview John Stonehill of Check Their Fridge about how you can learn a lot about your date by checking out their fridge. What you are about to read (and see) is 100% accurate. INCLUDING the state of my fridge. Ask my mother, I’m a hot mess. This part didn’t make it into article — but you can find HERE — his personal analysis of MY fridge. Get ready. It’s pretty insane. And turns out – I’m not as insane as I thought. Which makes me downright normal. Be scared. “Here’s what Aly’s fridge tells me… I’ve never seen this much milk outside a...

What’s your sad single behavior?

What’s your sad single behavior?

A lot of us have such antics. For instance, I like to unwind at night while watching my daily soaps – often while tweezing stray brow hairs. Some of us order takeout from the same place over and over (mine is a local falafel joint), others may like to sleep naked…because they can. Some of this is fun, some of it is ridiculous, and some means that we really are in a rut. Remember when we were in high school? Combatting frustration with life and routine (and, uh, loneliness) was as easy as joining a club or taking on a new sport. I was never much for sports — it’s sad but true — but I was all about starting a club. In fact, I was the founder and original president of the Soap Opera Society at Murrow High School. Take that,...

Celebrating love — it’s not just about Valentine’s Day

Celebrating love — it’s not just about Valentine’s Day

Love is celebrated a few times a year — but lovers? That has a special moment of significance. Lover’s Day is a national holiday on April 23 that finds its focus in taking a moment out of your day to acknowledge your lover a little more than usual. “Call of work let’s lay; call it lover’s day,” sang the band TV on the Radio in 2008 with their song, Lover’s Day. This segment of lyrics depicts the meaning of the holiday and reveals the most natural way a pair can share this day — in bed. It is a day that’s wedged between holidays like Easter and the Fourth of July in a month where people, especially couples, may need a little pick me up. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want an extra excuse to enjoy their favorite person? So here are...

The life (and mind) of a romance writer

The life (and mind) of a romance writer

Those who know me well know that my initial life goal was not the life I ended up living. Blame it on being raised at the knee of General Hospital (happy 50th, by the way!) – but I was watching soaps before I learned to read. Romance novels were the first books I read, and when I decided I wanted to be a writer when I “grew up,” there was nothing else I even considered writing. Obviously, I’d be writing romance novels. The trashier the better. I don’t know why I haven’t yet…I want to say it’s because I’m busy (I am!) – but I think there’s a part of us that always is petrified of pursuing that which we want most. To give ourselves to something and then fail, it kills the dream. It seems almost...

Giveaway: The Ins and Outs (Teehee!) of Vibes Going Mainstream (It’s true!)

Giveaway: The Ins and Outs (Teehee!) of Vibes Going Mainstream (It’s true!)

Let it be noted, my mom subscribes to my blog. That said, a teeny part of me is squeamish about this post — but the rest of me is very aware that if I were to buy her 50 Shades of Gray, she’d totally put it in her travel bag. Anyway, Trojan just sent me their “wine and vibes” package so I could review their latest vibes on the market (and yes, Trojan VibrationsPleasure Package and reflect on the  growing mainstreaming of vibes and sex in pop culture. They are everywhere — 50 Shades of Grey, Hysteria the movie, Trojan Vibrators in drugstores, etc – and I think it’s genius. After all, can you think of anything we all have in common more so than sex? (Not with each other, obviously.) You guys, let me share something with...
