Valentine's Day

Growing up, Valentine's Day was one of those holidays I either hated, or I loved. There was no middle ground really. I think that's a girl thing ;)

Two years ago, I got engaged on Valentine's Day. It changed my view of the day forever, obviously! It's still one of my favorite memories.

Now, I'm married and I'm always looking for something special to help continually keep the spark in my marriage and make my husband feel great.

I'm very excited to announce a partnership with EdenFantasys.  Periodically I will be posting blog posts about their company.  I love this site, and I love how great they are with their bloggers and customers. Please be aware that the site may not be work or kid friendly before you click on it!! :)

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

Edenfantasys offers a wide selection of adult toys, lingerie, DVD's and more.  Because my site is family friendly, I will always try to post more "innocent" items, with links to the more fun, risque stuff ;P

Right now, I'm loving all the specials EdenFantasys has going on for Valentine's day. They have a 20% off code site wide on regularly priced items, as well as free Express Delivery on orders over 100 dollars. So you could still get your order in on time for Valentine's Day!!! (Hurry though!)

I'm seriously considering getting this Sweet Heart Strawberry Box for a romantic night in!

I also love that Edenfantasys offers a wide selection of lingerie. They have a great selection of items under $20, plus sized items and of course a great selection devoted to Valentine's Day!
