Need to Stop Staying Away


Don’t ask me why, but I’ve barely blogged at all, for so long! This time, only a couple years ago, I blogged every day for the entire month and now…

In the meantime…

I’ve discovered Pinterest, and have been pinning things like they’re going out of style. I probably spend about an hour a day (just for the last couple of days) searching the web for things to pin. It’s a little addicting! I don’t normally save a lot of picture-related things to the web, because it’s normally really hard to go back and view them and share them and remember why you saved a picture. Pinterest makes it super quick and super easy, so all I do is click a button on any website I’m viewing, it will give me some pictures to pick from, and wham! bam! thank you Ma’am!, I’m sharing tons of my favorite stuff.

So I thought that I’d share some of my pins with you:

Love the Look of Latex

All my favorite latex clothing from around the web. Adding more everyday…

   

See More…

And then I get a little bit girly after the cool clothes…

Hairstyles I Heart

Video tutorials from YouTube on various hairstyles, as well as other hair-related tidbits that may help me with my LONG hair!

I’m totally dying to do this one! Just need an occasion.

See More…

INSPIRED: Nail Polish Art

I’ve always loved to paint my nails, it’s the one girly thing I’ve done for years – next to shaving. This shows you some of the cool designs I’ve found, like:

   

I have a few more boards, which I’ve listed below. Be sure to check them out and if you’d like, I could invite you to Pinterest and we could share our boards. Just visit my contact page and let me know you’d like an invite.

I Fell In Love… Again!!

I always love when I get “in the mood” to read my Google Reader. I actually have two Google accounts now. One that is mostly blogging and social media related stuff and the other which is more of my kinky-related stuff. Think Lifestyle Bloggers Anonymous related

I’ve kind of been ignoring the first one the last couple of weeks, partially because I really need to clean it up so that I’m more interested in checking it all out and partially because I’m so focused on expanding LBA that I haven’t really been paying attention to much except for trying to build that out by making connections with other adult bloggers, which means tons of blog discovering and reading!

So I thought, since I found a couple of really awesome posts, that I’d share some of what I’m coming across and loving. Enjoy!

Great Posts

I’ve also started checking out a few more blogs. I’ve subscribed to a few and put them in my special Blogs to Review folder, meaning that I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue following them or not. When I do decide, they’re getting put in the Blogs I Read folder!
I just recently downloaded a Chrome Extension that lets me un-truncate feeds in my Google Reader, which makes me really happy, because for some reason the blogs that I’m most interested in are always sporting the shortened feed posts and I’m not one to enjoy having to leave the current page that I’m on. I often have so many tabs open that opening up another one is too daunting, so I don’t do it… Anyways…

Blogs I’m Checking Out

  • SexIs

    Eden’s Fantasy is not only a great place for buying sex toys, lingerie and more, they also bring you some of the hottest sex news (including an article about a Tennessee highway getting closed due to the spillage of some Bull Semen) and some great series like Secrets of a  Sex Writer by Rachel Kramer Bussel.
  • Graydancer

    Graydancer is a sex-educator, erotic author, sex-positive activist and crazy awesome rope bondage enthusiast.
  • Domestic Servitude

    If you are interested in domestic servitude, this is definitely the blog for you. They offer a variety of household tips, tons of great links, crafts and other little tidbits for you to enjoy.
  • Diary of  a Kinky Librarian

    Nadia West is a self-identified slut, pervert, polyamorist, bisexual, submissive, feminist librarian. She’s a thirtysomething living in an undisclosed part of the NYC area. Nadia loves to talk about sex and her adventures with her Dom, MasterDoc, and thus this blog.
  • Making Latex Clothing

    If you’ve ever had an interest in making your own latex clothing, but weren’t sure how or even where to start, this is by far one of the best blogs I’ve ever found about the subject. Great tutorials, awesome projects and guaranteed to make you want to start crafting your own latex apparel!
I’ve also been kind of ignoring my own Twitter account and have been focusing a lot more on @LBAnonymous. It’s been good so far because I’m finding a lot of people that I’m really loving to follow. Check out some of the people I’m following on Twitter:
