Workout of the week no 3

This weeks workout of the week is a Back and Biceps Workout. This one is fun because it incorporates some super-sets and also negatives into the mix.

One way to make workouts a little harder is to introduce negatives. Negatives is a great way to overload the muscle by slowing down the lowering phase of the lift. An easy way to do this is to count till 2 when you lift and count to 4 when you lower. As you become stronger you can extend the lowering phase with a few more counts.

Are you ready for this? Here we go!

The Space Between Us – Review

This past weekend we watched The Space Between Us. We missed the movie when it came out at the cinema’s but a few weeks ago I saw an old poster at our local cinema. We got our hand on a copy of the movie and watched it as our ‘Sunday Night Movie‘.

Spoiler Alert!!!!


A team of astronauts fly to Mars to start a new colony called East Texas Mars. On the way there the head astronaut discovers she is pregnant. NASA decides to keep this information a secret until they can find a way for the baby to return to Earth since the baby’s gestation period was in 0 gravity. Upon arrival on Mars the mother delivers the baby but dies in childbirth. NASA keeps the child’s existence a secret for 16 years.The boy makes contact with a girl from Earth and decides to go meet her on Earth and to find his father.

The Space Between Us is a lovely written teenage love story and a story of self discovery with some suspense and cool actions scenes. Its also a bit tragic too since Earths gravity and atmosphere is killing the boy and we realise that he would never be able to survive on Earth.

Its a really sweet movie for young and old. So get your hand on it and make it your Sunday Night Movie


DIY Mandarin Sugar Scrub

Since its getting colder and colder I’ve been eating a lot of citrus type fruits recently and I just love the smell of oranges and mandarins so I thought that a mandarin sugar scrub would be a great way to prepare my skin for the dry weather that’s on the way. Its also a great handmade gift for a special friend. You can read how to make your own essential oils from my previous post.


Mandarin essential oils have some great benefits. For centuries its been produced in Brazil, Spain and Italy. It has also been used to relieve stomach aches and cramps in children.



Workout of the Week #2

Since I’ve been in my 20’s I’ve been too scared to use a jump rope as I felt heavy and unable to jump, but a few years ago I saw this lovely little exercise routine and decided to give it a try. It was much easier than I expected even though I hit myself with the rope more than once or twice.

This is one of my favorite exercises of all time. Read More

302 Advanced Techniques for Driving a Man Wild in Bed by Olivia St. Claire – Book review

This is one of my all time favourite books. I bought my first copy in 2004 after I left school (and I’m still using it 13 years later). My high school sex experiences consisted of missionary and more missionary with the occasional doggy style. I thought that the best way to spice it up a bit would be to buy a book from an “EXPERT”.

SO there I was in the bookstore trying to find a book that seemed interesting and without too many pictures at the front in case someone saw the outside cover. And then I saw it….what more can you ask for than 302 advanced techniques.

I consider this one of the best books I’ve read because of the first few chapters. Before you even get to all the advanced techniques they have a section on Passion triggers and the art of seduction. Truth be told. If you cannot feel sexy on the inside, how do you expect others to find you sexy. Passion triggers are those things that reminds you of something that made you feel sensual and lusty.
