So what is it like with a day in the life of The Retro Romancer?
I'm sure you know by now that I absolutely love my job. I get to help women feel beautiful and empowered both in and out of the bedroom. Sexual Health Education and Women's Empowerment have become a passion of mine and being a Pure Romance Consultant is the perfect fit for me! BUT! One of the BIGGEST perks of being a Pure Romance Consultant is the access to Free & Discounted Goodies from my favorite product line! I often times get asked if I use everything Pure Romance has to offer. The answer is no, because not everything is my cup of tea or shot of whiskey! However, there are still a ton of products that I use daily, weekly, and on special occasions. Let me walk you through my day! If you're like me, and a Pure Romance junkie, you might want to consider joining my team to support your habit. Check it out HERE!
What's My Morning Routine Like?
If you've followed me for a while on social media, you know that I am a Caffeine Queen and that I love my coffee. I don't go a day with out it. Every morning I stir in the HeLi Collagen Peptides into my coffee. It doesn't leave a weird taste or texture once it is fully stirred into my hot coffee. Since I've started this new routine, I've noticed improvement within my hair, nails, and skin. There have been a lot of mornings where I'm like, "Dang! My face looks so flawless right now," and my makeup application has been so much smoother.
For breakfast, I have a balanced meal and supplement it with our Pure 21 Wellness Challenge. I have noticed real results with how I feel on the inside and how I look on the outside. I don't feel as bloated after meals, and I feel more of a boost of energy. The whey protein isolate powder that is included with Pure 21 is a great meal substitute when you are on the run and includes a shaker bottle. Just a scoop & some water and shake it up. My favorite is mixing the Vanilla flavored whey protein and HeLi - Kick Start with a smoothie, which is another great on the run meal.
Of course my shower is FULL of Pure Romance Products! For skincare, I use the Uncovered Skincare - Firm & Smooth Daily Essentials Kit. Again, I've noticed vast improvements in my skin using this skincare line. My wax lady even asked what I was doing differently because my skin was doing so much better while waxing. My favorite Shower Gel & Bubble Bath is in Truly Sexy Flirt. I love that the bubbles are pretty much endless, smells great, and pheromone infused. The bottle seems to last forever in comparison to shower gels and bubble baths bought at big box stores because of the foam boosting agents. Not to mention when you use it as a bubble bath that you are getting a movie quality bubble bath that'll make you feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman! Whenever I get complimented on how delicious I smell, I just reply with a hair flip and "Thanks! I showered today." My shower routine wouldn't be complete if I didn't bring my Coochy with me! I have super sensitive skin and the Conditioning Shave Cream helps eliminate the razor burn and ingrown hairs. I've tried a side by side comparison in the past with my old regular degular foam shaving cream on one leg and compared it to the other using the Conditioning Shaving Cream and WOW the difference with how soft my leg was in comparison! Plus! Since one of the main ingredients is Keratin, I use it as a deep conditioner to help keep my hair soft and strong.
Once I'm out of the shower, I am immediately applying the Hydrating Body Oil while my skin is still wet. The oil absorbs up to 7 layers deep into my skin and provides an all day moisture & fragrance before I even grab my towel to pat dry. During this time, I will also apply the 2nd step of the Uncovered Skincare - Firm & Smooth Daily Essentials Kit which is the Balancing Toner. I do this while my face is still wet from the shower. One of the key ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid, which will only absorb into your skin if your skin is still wet. I then finish off the other two steps using the Hydrating Eye Serum and Advanced Moisturizer. If I am doing a full face of makeup, I will mix a pump of Rapid Rewind in with the Advanced Moisturizer, which helps improve the appearance of my wrinkles within a matter of minutes and helps be get a smoother makeup application. These products help reduce my fine lines, tighten my pores and improve the overall appearance of my skin.
When I'm done drying off, before getting dressed, I will spray wherever I shaved with my HeLi- Soothing Aftershave Mist. This helps close up the pores, makes my shave last longer, and hair grow back softer. Putting on the Aftershave will help give the application of Coco Glow a smoother finish. I use Coco Glow in Light to Medium on my legs so you don't have to wear sunglasses around me if I'm wearing a skirt or shorts due to my pasty legs. This self tanner applies like a white lotion and gradually gets darker over the course of 24 hours and doesn't orange or stain your clothes. Just be sure to wash your hands afterwards so your palms aren't discolored. Along with Coco Glow, if I'm wearing shorts, dresses or skirts, I'm also applying Chafe Escape to my inner thighs and under boobs to prevent the Chub Rub and the Humid-I-Titties!
If I've had a heavy day at the gym, I'll use the HeLi - Muscle Rub to help ease my sore and achy muscles. This formula works sort of like Icy Hot on steroids with the added CBD. The Muscle Rub is a must have after leg day!
On my way out the door, I like to use a combination of Basic Instinct and Truly Sexy Flirt Perfume to give me my own unique fragrance by bringing out my natural pheromones. I apply both of these products to my both sides of my neck, wrists and décolletage (fancy word for the titties). If I'm feeling a little frisky, I'll also apply both of these to my inner thighs and ankles. IYKYK.
What I Keep with Me at Work...
Since I've started back with a 9-5 job, I've come to realize that I still need a few products on hand. The hand soap in the bathrooms is such a harsh thing to use on my hands and I feel them drying out all day. So now I keep a bottle of the Nourishing Body Lotion in Truly Sexy Flirt on my desk to keep my hands super soft. Along with my Nourishing Body Lotion, I keep another (yes, another) bottle of Basic Instinct on my desk. I work in a loud industrial manufacturing plant and primarily work in front of a computer all day which is straining on my eyes, leading to headaches and migraines. Rubbing Basic Instinct on my temples help reduce the onset of these headaches and migraines which also helps prevent me from having to take unnecessary pain relievers. Plus... people are nicer to me when I use the Basic Instinct since its our special pheromone rollerball.
Now, before I hear any lectures about how bad smoking is for you, I was a heavy smoker for a very long time. I quit smoking in 2019, but every now and then when I'm very stressed, I like to have one on occasion. But at the same time, I don't like smelling like smoke and I'm no longer nose blind to it. Keeping the Refreshing Fragrance Mist in Truly Sexy Flirt on hand helps deodorize my clothes and hair. It's almost like Febreze for my hair and skin! (Please do not spray Febreze on yourself! Just get the Refreshing Fragrance Mist in your favorite fragrance. LOL) The white and green tea extracts in the Refreshing Fragrance Mist also helps cool me down in the summer when I spray it on my skin and helps take away any BO from sweating. Speaking of sweating! Before I get dressed to go out, I will turn my clothes inside out and spray them down with Between the Sheets! This powdered linen spray helps provide an extra layer of protection against sweating through your clothes. It's also great to put in your sneakers and work shoes!
All Work, No Play, Makes Jen a Dull Girl!
I have a very active and social lifestyle. I love going out and having fun with my friends. I'm also single and enjoying the dating life! I bring the day to night by switching out my fragrances from the Truly Sexy Flirt Perfume and Refreshing Fragrance Mist to the Dirty French Perfume and Refreshing Fragrance Mist. And of course, Basic Instinct stays in my purse! (And, YES! That is a third bottle!) I also love, and I mean LOVE, pairing a piece of lingerie with a skirt or pleather pants with a blazer! The Power Play and Dark Temptation are absolutely perfect for this sexy, yet sophisticated ensemble! Plus, when you're with your honey you can be like, "You think I look good now... Just wait until later!" Remember, Sexy isn't a Size! It is a State of Mind!
If I'm out on a date with someone that I've been seeing for a while, I might surprise him by passing the remote to the Box Office. Seeing their eyes light up because they know exactly what that remote is for is one of the best and most empowering feelings! Be sure to buzz responsibly though. There is a 33 foot range on this remote. There is an emergency off switch on the portion of the toy that you are wearing, but it is not very lady like to try pushing the button off in between your legs while wearing the toy. I suggest walking to the bathroom. But we also don't want you looking like you're walking with a stutter if your partner puts it on a pulsating setting, so hopefully they're nice to you while this is in use. But Baybyyyy! This isn't your average panty vibe! It will not just tease, but it'll finish the job! I just hope your Poker Face is stronger than your O Face!
Some of you have asked, "Yeah, but what's in the Spendanight Bag?" With having an active dating life, sometimes I have to bring my bag of tricks on my date, or at least prepare in advance! I will leave my HeLi - Water-Based Lubricant at home and actually apply it before I go out anywhere if I think there might be some frisky business later. Every woman deserves to have a great lubricant in her life. Proper lubrication brings us more comfort and more orgasms! Spit is NOT a lube and vaginal tearing does not feel good the next day (or days... yikes!) With the HeLi - Water-Based Lubricant, you can apply this at/in the vaginal opening up to 12 hours before you plan to have sex (with a partner or with a toy). The lubricant will eventually absorb into the vaginal tissue so you don't feel that squishy feeling like you do after a visit to the OB/GYN and they give you that one napkin to clean up with. But, with the rewetting properties, this lubricant will reactivate itself as soon as you start your own natural lubrication through arousal! So when your honey goes in to check the temperature, they're going to be like "Dang, Baby! You just stay ready for me!" Uh-Huh! All you, Babe!
But what comes in the bag? Cleanse with Benefits is hands down a must have for any date night. It doesn't matter if you're a sexy single or a cozy couple! You want to stay feeling fresh! So leave that bottle of Amp at home, because this product is kinda like a pH balanced baby wipe with some pizazz! And just like Amp, this is an in the moment product! It is really healthy for us to use the restroom both before and after sex to prevent a UTI. So be sure to go potty before you're ready to do the deed, and I can almost guarantee you that you're going to feel that tingling feel good sensation as you're doing a tip toe run and jump in the bed saying "Come on! It's GO TIME, BABY!" (Well, maybe not out loud, but you'll definitely be thinking it!)
Another little secret that I'll keep in The Spendanight Bag is Great Head! This tastes like Pink Strawberry, which is way better than sweaty ballsack. Because who goes to Baskin Robbins and asks for penis flavored ice cream? You just give a generous squeeze to your tongue and roll your tongue across the rough of your mouth and swallow a good 3 times to coat your throat entirely. (Everyone has different sensitivities, so it's okay if you need a little more!) After a short while, you will have a relaxed gag reflex. Great Head does NOT numb, it is not a pharmaceutical. It only relaxes the gag reflex so there is no more yacking while you're snacking! The reason it does not numb is because we want you to know if you're choking on something... but... guys are weird and like to hear us choke, so it's okay if you need to fake your gag reflex to inflate his ego. That's the only thing you should be faking in the bedroom!
Now, let's say I'm really feeling the person that I'm seeing and I want to give him a little treat and enjoy a little more foreplay. I'll bring the Heart Throb with me and use Whipped as a massage lotion. The Heart Throb will heat up and almost melt down this creamy lubricant. This way you not only have extra fun and tasty lubricant on hand, you also have an edible massage lotion. Massages can become very erotic and you will want to be kissing everywhere you're rubbing, so instead of tasting a lotion or an oil, why not taste a decadent vanilla cupcake or macaroon? Throw in an Onyx Blindfold and the Onyx Handcuffs for a little added spice!
It's Time to Drift into LaLa Land...
I heard a phrase not too long ago that said "You know she's a Bad Bitch when she takes her makeup off before she goes to bed, even if she's piss drunk." I'd have to say this is true. Every night before bed, no matter if I am drunk or not (the routine might just be a little sloppy), I take my makeup off and go through my nightly routine. I take the bulk of my makeup off with these makeup eraser wash cloths that I got off of Amazon. You just wet them with no soap, and it takes off some of the most stubborn makeup with ease. If I need a little extra help, I'll use a waterproof micellar water. But again, like I did in the morning, I still wash my face using the Uncovered Skincare - Firm & Smooth Daily Essentials Kit. For extra measures against time, I'll incorporate Body Boost. This firming cream will help tighten my skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. I will also apply this to my chest and neck, which is also thin skin that is prone to wrinkles if not properly taken care of, which in my case is more so preventative maintenance. Body Boost is also rubbed in on my booty and legs. One of the main ingredients, caffeine, firms everything up so my lower half doesn't look like it got hit with some hail damage.
Some days I'm in the mood of needing to relax with a Bubble Bath. So I have, yet another, bottle of Shower Gel & Bubble Bath in Lavender & Chamomile. The aroma helps provide a soothing spa like fragrance while the bubbles make me feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. I'll enhance my bubble bath with HeLi - Body Soak to ease my soar achy muscles, a few sprays of Hydrating Body Oil in Lavender & Chamomile (again, yes another bottle) to help moisturize my skin, and a couple of squeezes of HeLi - Miracle Oil to help ease and prevent folliculitis on my inner thighs, which is a difficult skin condition that I have. Once I'm out of the bath, I go through my same shower and after-shower routine as the morning because I'm weird.
I like to make sure my hands and feet are extra moisturized before I go to bed. I have another (yes, another!) bottle of the Nourishing Body Lotion in my bathroom. This bottle is in Lavender & Chamomile to help wind me down from the day. I'll also apply a little extra to my elbows and knees. If I'm experiencing super dry skin during the winter time, I'll apply HeLi - Moisturizing Repair Balm to my knuckles, cuticles and anywhere I feel like callouses are forming on my feet so I can go longer between pedicures. If I'm sick, and getting a dry nose from blowing my nose all day, I'll take the tiniest bit and apply it where my nose is starting to get raw for some extra protection. The Repair Balm is great for all this extra dryness during the winter months since it hold 400x its weight in water to provide phenomenal moisture and hydration to your skin.
HeLi - Miracle Oil is another product that just stays in the bathroom for numerous reasons. My favorite ways to use Miracle Oil is to help shorten the healing time on scratches and pimples, help repair any dryness in my scalp without making my hair look greasy (I'll mix it with my shampoo & conditioner, which also helps prevent lice if you're a mom with little ones reading this) and my mom steals it from me to help prevent her eczema flair ups.
Once I'm all clean and moisturized, I'll slip into my Euforia Sol Lounge Tee and Euforia Sol Lounge Boyshort. These luxurious jammies are made with some of the softest material I've ever felt. The bamboo fibers provide a cooling effect while you sleep. So if you're like me and experience the night sweats that wake you up feeling disgusting in the middle of the night, do yourself a favor and invest in a set of Euforia Sleepwear!
I leave a bottle of HeLi - Now & Zen and HeLi Open Sesame Roll-on on my night stand. When I'm feeling anxious and having a hard time falling asleep, I'll apply Now & Zen to my temples, neck and wrists. The soothing aroma of this essential oil helps put my mind at ease and helps me fall asleep faster. During different allergy seasons, I tend to get stuffy at night pretty easily. Applying Open Sesame to the tip of my nose (just a little bit), chest and bottoms of my feet help to open up my airways and makes it easier for me to breath. Plus, it also feels a lot better and less sticky than the goopy Vick's Vapor Rub.
I also leave a tube of Bosom Buddy on my nightstand. While Bosom Buddy is traditionally known for enhancing nipple stimulation during foreplay, it also works as a great lip balm and helps keep your lips hydrated. Products like Chapstick have drying agents in them like alcohol, whereas Bosom Buddy is formulated with Beeswax and Shea Butter to help with giving that added moisture back to your lips. Plus, who doesn't like their lips to be delicious with Dragon Fruit or Pina Colada? Remember! Bosom Buddy has a great tingling sensation to it, which makes it great for The Lips, The Nips, and Never Below The Hips!
Can't forget about Between the Sheets! (Yes! yet again, another bottle!) I'll spray this inside my pillow case. I often times experience the night sweats. Between the Sheets will absorb any moisture throughout the night so my pillow stays cool and dry. I also spray Between the Sheets in the morning on my sheets to keep them fresh between washes. While I'm washing my sheets, I'll spray it all over the mattress to help with any other residual moisture. And of course, keep it handy in case you have any partners where you experience a Splash Zone, Cuddle Puddle or Snail Trail. There's no sleeping in the wet spot in this bed!
At the end of the day, there should be 4 spots on a woman that's always soft. Her Hair, Lips, Hands, & Feet!
Uh-Oh! I'm having Trouble Falling Asleep!
Did you know that an orgasm can help improve your sleep? A study conducted by The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) showed that 65% of participants reported better sleep quality after having an orgasm. Other health benefits that come with masturbation are reduced stress levels, strengthened pelvic floor muscles & anal area, increased confidence (ayyyye!!), increased sexual arousal, relieving menstrual cramps & muscle tension and improved mood. Orgasms help your body release endorphins, which is the natural chemicals that block pain receptors in your brain and tend to make you feel happier. "Masturbation, in essence, is an expression of self-love!"
"Orgasm give you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. And happy people don't just shoot their husbands. They just don't!" ... Or whatever Elle Woods said in Legally Blonde. With all that said, sometimes having a nightstand of goodies within arms reach is the best way for you to get to sleep faster and maybe save a life! Here are a few of *ahem* my best client's nightstand favorites.
The Adventurer has that air pulsating puckering kiss like vibration. It's like a completely different orgasm that is hard to explain. It comes on super intense and super fast(like under a minute fast). Gets you to sleep in no time! Plus, if you're not feeling the air pulsation, The Adventurer is double ended, with the other end giving a quick tongue like flicker.
The Private Beach is great for the chick that requires heavy stimulation. The flexible "bunny ears" make it easy for different types of stimulation.
The Main Attraction offers a various combination of speeds between the clitoral and g-spot stimulation speeds. Just be sure to keep a bottle of Between the Sheets on the night stand. You might need it!
The Euforia V39 is great for when you want a little more sensation. Turn on the 104 degree heat with the Caleo Technology and a pulsating pattern that almost feels like a heart beat... You won't need a partner, and you'll want to cook this vibe breakfast in the morning!
Don't forget that every Bedroom Accessory deserves a little T.L.C. A Toy Tote should be used to store each toy separately to prevent contamination and bacterial growth, along with preventing other toys from touching. Silicone products touching other silicone products will cause a chemical reaction where they will melt each other. A good water based lubricant, like HeLi - Water-Based Lubricant or Just Like Me should be used with your bedroom accessories for increase pleasure and vaginal health. Using Euforia Cleansing Mist is the proper way to clean your bedroom accessories. Never use soap, dish detergent, bleach, or Lysol wipes and for goodness sake not the dishwasher (you can't eat at everybody's house) to clean your toys!
