May Favourites – Bargains, Bondage & Baking

Some of you may have noticed I’ve been posting less, Tweeting less, Instagramming less and basically just being a lot less active than I was before. Most of you probably had no idea. The truth is, with Uni, my blog and my beautiful little ones, I was working myself into exhaustion. Depression. My blog was realistically the only thing I could cut back on. It has been a scary transition, with fears over reduced progression or, even worse, I’ll slow down so much I’ll just… Stop. Not to mention the guilt involved in taking a step back from the sex blogging memes and the fear of losing a place in the wonderful community.

So, the change has been tough. But, I’m doing it. I’ve spent May learning to take care of myself again and whilst it’s a slow process, I am beginning to feel somewhat better. Less run down and burnt out. Which hopefully means June is set to be a much better month for me.

Amidst the struggles, I have still been able to enjoy things though. And since that’s what this post is all about…

Here Are My Sexy May Favourites

Sex Toy

How can such a budget-friendly vibe, be soo good?! I have the crème de la crème amongst my sex toy collection and yet still I continually reach for my trusty Rocks Off Touch of Velvet. It just does the job my clit craves to perfection. It’s precise, it’s powerful and it is, in my opinion, an absolute bloody bargain!

Sex Educator/Writer

If you follow me on Twitter you may have picked up on the fact that I think Backwoods Bedroom is one hell of a sex toy reviewer! A couple months ago, I was browsing the Instagram hashtag #SexToy. I clicked on every photo that jumped out at me, and every.single.time it led me to Backwoods Bedroom’s Insta account. Her sex toy photography is the best I’ve seen. Add on top of that the massive dose of personality in all of her reviews and, well, you can probably see why I think she rocks the world of sex toy reviews.

My Sinful Sunday images are the photos I put the most thought and effort into. I love participating as it gives me the opportunity to get creative with my own body. Except, this month the prompt included ‘No Humans’. I was surprised to find I still thoroughly enjoyed taking and editing my photo, although that probably has something to do with the opportunity to hit the beach! I am an absolute summer girl!

Kinky Something

This month I thoroughly tested and reviewed the Diogol Plaisir Ice Lock for the wonderful Scandarella. It more than cranked my self-bondage antics up a notch. When I’m ice-locked in place, I am completely at the surrender of this metal device and the psychological effect is both intense and satisfying. I’ve been able to use it a few times, in a few different scenarios and am looking forward to letting my imagination take me to new and exciting places with it.

Blog Post

I’ve felt an awful lot like my blog has turned into an endless stream of reviews. And whilst I do adore writing about the ins and outs of sex toys, it was extremely nice to have an excuse to do something a little different. Thanks to the wonderful retailer, Kinky Fever, I was able to write a whole post on my favourite sex toy, the clit vibe, and go into lots of detail on why I love it so much. I had more than a little fun with this one!

And The Not So Sexy Things I’ve Been Loving This Month?

Baking

If you’re wondering what I’ve spent all my new found free-time doing, it is baking. And then washing up. And then eating too much cake. And then repeating steps one through to three.

Beach

This one probably came up last summer, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was a huge part of my happiness throughout May. It is an actual impossibility for me to be sad in the sun.

So, what have you been loving most this past May?
