5 Ways To Up Your Romance Game

5 Ways To Up Your Romance Game

Romance is alive 365 days of the year--don't let it fizzle out!

Tourism Fiji

Valentine's Day is known for being the most romance-centered day of the year, but so many people don't take advantage of it! Sometimes, the physical aspects of a relationship can be put on the backburner (especially those of us in long-term relationships), so holidays like Valentine's Day are a great way to dedicate time specifically for you and your partner. For some reason, spicing up the bedroom is taboo, but it can be fun and beneficial for a relationship! Here are some things you can add to up your seduction game this V-Day:

1. Flavored Lube

This is a good introduction into the many ways sex can be more than just a means to an end. Not only does lube make sure you can have fun long-term without drying out, but a flavored version can make things interesting. Astroglide is a personal favorite because it makes things slippery without making you feel sticky. It doesn't taste too fake, either, which is a plus!

2. Massage Oil

If you're not looking to just spice up the sex, massage oil is a great way to make things sensual and sweet for you and your partner. It makes a good rub-down feel even better, and let's be honest if you're in a relationship, massages almost always lead to something more. These oils can be used to de-stress, energize, relax, and even relieve some pain. This brand doesn't stay oily on the skin after being rubbed in, so you won't have to shower afterward.

3. Nipple Nibblers

This stimulation cream is placed on the lips, nipples, and other bits of the body for an exciting oral experience. Some simply like to leave it on for the added sensations, while some like to actually taste. If your body is more sensitive, use only a small amount for the best results, otherwise, the tingling can end up feeling uncomfortable. The taste isn't bad, but it isn't great; the fun it adds is worth it, though!

4. Arousal Gel

Another Stimulation product, made specifically for women! If you find yourself to be less sensitive, this is the product for you! It tingles, tickles, and makes the whole experience that much more intense. It's flavored (strawberry again) so your partner can enjoy the experience, too. It will definitely leave the tongue a bit prickly feeling after oral, and it's sticky, but if those aren't deal-breakers for you, this will be an awesome addition!

5. Woodwick Candles

Candles are always a great way to add to the ambiance of a room, especially if you're in the mood for romance. Woodwick candles also add a little something else--sound. It sounds like a little fire burning due to the wick being made out of wood. It crackles nicely, and this particular brand has amazing scents! Try lighting a few for a night in with your partner and you'll be hooked!

These are all great ways to make sure your alone time with your partner is really special! Romance isn't only alive on February 14th--break some of these products out on any day of the year to let your sweetheart know you love them.

Happy romancing!

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

When you take a close look, juice cleanses aren't as magical as they are made out to be, and in fact, they might do more harm than good.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.


Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

Making A Food Instagram Was The Greatest Silver Lining To Come Out Of My COVID-19 Experience

With the crazy and scary times that 2020 has brought, find comfort in the one thing everyone loves: food.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
