Vacation Pics!

18 Nov

Well, Joe & I are officially on year 4 of our committed relationship… I wanted to share some pics.  We stayed at GR Solaris in Cancun.




Went clubbing at Coco Bongo, we sat VIP but Joe snapped this while I was on my way back from the bathroom- he didn’t even realize I was in the pic!


And even went downtown and ate authentic tacos next to a dolphin pool


Oh man, it is SO nice to no longer be a broke college student.  I can’t wait to see what next year brings!


Equinox Resort Spa, VT (and Backroad Discovery Tours)

10 Nov

Wonderful experience.  I stayed in a townhome which was easily accessible to everything.  It was huge with a modern, sleek design. It has balcony overlooking the mountains and fully equip kitchen.


The service was outstanding, making restaurant reservations for us and shuttling to and from.  The town itself is full of outlets, so we did plenty of shopping.  Our visit happen to fall upon restaurant week, so we took full advantage of that as well.

I didn’t use the actual spa services, but I definitely got use out of the gym, indoor pool, and jacuzzi located outside.  I regret not taking a in-the-pool fitness class which was no extra charge.  The resort gives you the fluffiest robes to lounge in!

The main building has a restaurant (which I didn’t try because it was pricey) and two bars.  They plan activities but my favorite was drinking by the bonfire.

They make the BEST apple cider doughnuts you will ever taste.

And if you are staying in the area you HAVE to check out Backroad Discovery Tours. I loved the tour guide; she was more like a friend.  We touched upon everything we hoped for, like local histories as well as syrup tasting and cheddar cheese! We even got to play with animals.  I definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

Great escape from the city congestion, and a wonderful long week to take in the fall.  Or have a wedding! Keep an eye out- this place is always popping up on TravelZoo.

Sizziling Sunday ;)

20 Oct

Our first night in Cancun (which is our first big drink) is also going to be our anniversary. And since it’s all-inclusive, I assume I’m going to be feeling pretty confident.



WARNING** adult content**********************


So I researched adult subscription boxes and discovered The Fantasy Box– which not only comes with props- but comes with “directions.”

“Every month, you will receive a different fantasy, instructions for how to play it out and all the goodies needed to turn fantasy into reality. Some fantasies are dark and sexy, some light and playful. Some are sensual, some are rowdy. They can take place in various rooms in your home or in the outside world. Whatever the fantasy, we guarantee your date night will be unforgettable.”

They offer 3 different sizes- Essentials for $34 a month, regular for $59 a month, and platinum for $139 a month.  You also have the option to subscribe bi-monthly.

I chose essentials.


First off, I hated the packaging.  I wanted to sneak this into my luggage and surprise him when we get there but the box just fell apart.  I believe the bigger sizes come in nice snug cardboard.


You are suppose to fill out the for him and for her cards before dinner that way you have something to talk about.  It’s just a way to learn about eachother o a different level.

It doesn’t matter who is the leader and who is the follower.  Personally, I’m nervous to be either, but thank god for those margaritas.


First, a bullet vibrator.  Ovo W1 $15 to be exact. Packed as if it were an iPhone. It claims to be waterproof and have a powerful but very quiet motor.  I haven’t successfully been able to turn this on seeing as I didn’t understand the concept of removing the red disk from the battery in order for it to start working.  In the process of trying to figure out what I was doing I lost the battery all together and must purchase a new one.  Don’t make the same mistake as me..


Rene Rofe Lingerie Set $18. A lot of reviewers like dhow “classy” this is.  I don’t want classy in the bedroom.  I’m young and trying to show off my body.  I want lace. I want sheer.  I mean goodness, he sees me sleep in less clothes than this!  But the push-up is a nice touch and the quality for the price is awesome.


Last but not least, a sample of Liquid Organics Lubricating Gel and a black silky blindfold.

The possibilities are endless.

The value of the box wasn’t much over what I paid but it’s worth the concept!  Try your fantasy box ASAP with promo code RAMBLE20 to save 20% on ANY box.
