One Spicy Interview!

Hello All and Happy Thanksgiving!

I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by Simon Duringer, the King of Interviews this week. His questions were provocative, fun and thought-provoking. He had me blushing and scratching my head more than once.

He had all sorts of questions from how my book has hit #1 across the UK and Canada in the first two weeks since the release date to how well-endowed my husband is. Wasn't expecting that one!

Feeling Alive

Hi Everyone!

It is that time of year again, winter is here. If you live in a climate like mine, the weather has turned cold and the nights are much longer. It's easy to want to curl up in the house for several months and not do anything, which can lead to a case of the winter doldrums.

I wanted to share with you some ideas to help you keep that wonderful "I'm alive!" feeling that often accompanies spring and summer. I hope they help, if you are one who finds yourself feeling stressed out or lacking energy this time of year.

1) Exercise Regularly - I know, I know. It's cold and dark out and you don't want to leave the house. I feel that way sometimes when it's time for me to hit the gym or take the dog for a big walk. If you can't bring yourself to go out, workout at home. Put on some music and dance, walk up and down the stairs over and over, do some push ups, use any exercise equipment that you might have collecting dust in yourself. Even if it's just 15 minutes/day - do it. I have to remind myself that I will NEVER regret having gone, whereas if I don't go, I will ALWAYS feel like I let myself down.

Try to find something that you will love doing, maybe yoga, swimming, pilates, walking with a friend, or taking your kids tobogganing (a great way to make memories as well as get exercise).

2) Go Out With Friends - Fight the urge to sit at home. Get out with your favourite people for a coffee, walk, trip the museum, dinner, a movie, shopping or whatever you love to do in the summer.  Make sure you schedule it ahead of time. It gives you something to look forward to in addition to developing those oh so important human connections (the real ones, not just the social media ones).

3) Physical Touch Helps - hugs and kisses and other ways of touching help our brains to release those feel-good chemicals. Make opportunities for touching someone you love each day. Sex is terrific for this too, so shave your legs, ladies and get busy!

4)Eat Well - I know comfort food is calling my name when the temperature drops. It's key for me to continue eating loads of fruits and veggies all year long. I don't enjoy salad as much in the winter, but I do love a healthy, hearty soup. I try to make a huge pot of vegetarian chili, minestrone or other veggie soup each week and have lots of leftovers.

5) Make a Winter "Bucket" List - Think of 10 or 20 things you want to do this winter to get you out of the house. Try a new sport such as skiing, rock-climbing, or snowshoeing.  Try a new activity such as painting ceramics at a shop, learning more about photography, making Christmas ornaments, knitting or whatever you've wanted to do that you've been putting off for another time. Commit to yourself and do it.

Making sure that you have something to look forward to each week helps you to feel more alive.

As always, I wish you happiness and love!

Orange Spiced Cranberry Sauce 

Here is my favourite recipe for Cranberry Sauce. It's quick and easy but definitely adds something extra special to a turkey dinner! I like to make the cranberry sauce the night before or early in the day (then refrigerate) so that I have one less thing to think about and clean up when I'm making the actual meal.

1 - 12 ounce bag Cranberries

1 Cup Water

1 cup Sugar (I usually use less, about 2/3 cup)

1 tablespoon Orange Zest

1 Cinnamon stick or 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan (I always like to use one size up from what I need so it won't splash over). Bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Add cranberries, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cook over medium heat and simmer until the sauce thickens and the cranberries burst (approximately 15 to 20 minutes). Remove cinnamon stick. Let cool to room temperature or refrigerate before serving. 


I wish you love, great sex and happiness always,

5 Tips to Get Back That Loving Feeling

1. When it comes to romantic interludes, confidence is queen. Stop worrying about what you look like when you are in bed! Period. Generally speaking, men are just so happy to be having sex, they couldn't care less about whether the woman they are with has flat abs or not. Sex is about touch, connection and attitude. If you are feeling self-conscious about your body, it will stop you from enjoying yourself and from really connecting with your partner. If you are feeling sexy, you'll relax, stay in the moment and move in ways that drive your man wild.  So forget about how thick your thighs are and just enjoy each sensation as it comes.

2. Think about sex at times when you aren't having it. Read sexy books or magazines, look up new positions on the internet. This will help get your body and mind in the right space for later. Women often have so much on their minds that they can go days or weeks even without thinking about sex. Take a "sexy thoughts break" for a few minutes each day. It's FUN! It can be the best part of your day.

3. Take care of your skin. Exfoliate your entire body regularly. Follow by a nourishing body cream. (Note, exfoliating scrubs and cream do not need to be expensive in order to work.) Rub on a little more cream right before you go to bed. The act of caring for yourself like this will make you feel more sensual and relaxed, not to mention make your skin feel like silk, which is very appealing to most guys.

4. Buy some massage oil and a luxury plush blanket to put down on your bed. The blanket will give you another sensual point of touch for your skin, not to mention keep your sheets from getting oil-stained. 

5. Try listening to some sexy music while you're in bed. Make a playlist ahead of time, even just a few songs on repeat. Give it a go. It really adds something extra and if you're a person who has trouble getting lost in the moment, this may help.
