5 out of 5

aka my favorite suicidal Christmas flick

This post is for the LAMB Director’s Chair 32 Frank Capra. I chose to focus on Capra’s classic It’s A Wonderful Life. I’ve been watching this movie for as long as I can remember. It was always played on TV during prime time every year. That’s why I found it particularly interesting when I found out a few years back that it actually lost money at the box office during its initial release. At any rate I love it.

The movie is set on Christmas Eve. A man named George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart, one of my dead guy crushes) decides to kill himself. He is interrupted by a man claiming to be an angel. This angel, Clarence, shows George what the world around him would be like if he hadn’t existed. Unlike some of us who probably haven’t made much of a difference he is shown that he definitely has. Yes, he’s saved two people’s lives. Plus the town is in disarray. Maybe worst of all, George’s wife Mary has ended up a lonely librarian. Oh the humanity!


Seriously though what has brought me back to this film as an adult is the love story between George and Mary. While George has not been able to accomplish all of the things that he wanted to do in life (such as join the military and travel) he realizes that his love for his family is too important to forsake. Plus we get a totally awful villain and learn a bit about how banks work. So share this movie with your family. Just make sure that you are ready to explain suicide to any young children.

Sexy Christmas gifts from EdenFantasys - the sex toys shop you can trust!

As you may know, I write lingerie, sex toy and beauty reviews on EdenFantasys (my profile). While browsing for more goodies I came across some fab gift ideas. I’ve already covered a variety of items (including, lingerie, sex toys, beauty, and more) in my recent post on SexIs,
10 Gifts That They Will Love for Under $20.

Today I want to share some other more specific types of sensuous items that couples can use together. Many of these can be used for massage. I’ve decided to focus on items from the Shunga and Kama Sutra lines. Items from both companies often earn high reviews on EF. Of course you can use your hands to perform a massage on your lover. If you want something more powerful though I highly recommend the InfraRed massager.

Shunga features a great looking massage oil, candle and cream. Plus you can get silly with their body paint or relax in the bath with their bath crystals. I am a huge fan of vanilla so that is the scent/flavor I would go with when available.

Kama Sutra offers a fantastic Oil of Love. I have the Strawberries & Champagne which both smells and tastes delicious. The massage oils from Kama Sutra also look awesome. I would go with the sweet almond or pineapple. You may also want to try their body paint or souffle.

As always, you can use my code EX4 for 15% off of non-sale items. However tons of stuff is on sale, including the lines above. Add any three products from Shunga or Kama Sutra as a set on a particular item’s page and you will save 20%. You can check out some other great sale codes below. These codes expire Friday, December 21, 2012 at 2PM ET. This is also when their huge 25% off lingerie sale ends so I recommend adding some sexy styles to your order as well.

Don’t forget to add you free gift from EdenFantasys before making your purchase. You can go here to access them. My favorite is the disposable vibrating cock ring but the wipes also come in handy.

What about shipping? Well, as you can see below you can still get an order before Christmas if your purchase totals $120 or more and you order by Friday, December 21, 2012 at 3PM ET. Orders of $25 or more qualify for free shipping but your order most likely won’t arrive before Christmas. If you want to go this route I recommend emailing your gift recipient a picture of what you are buying them or just telling them to expect a surprise. Plus who doesn’t like getting another gift after Christmas? It’s as exciting as finding one more present way in the back underneath the tree.

I did not invent this recipe. I simply altered it. However I bake so infrequently and these were so yummy that I had to share. This is my slightly altered version of Chocolate Covered Katie’s Peanut Butter Gingerbread Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Her recipe seemed light on the ingredients so I doubled it. Of course my doubled version made about as many cookies as her original version so her cookies were smaller but lower in calories.

You just have to try these. Definitely go check out her site for the original version. She is the queen of healthy desserts.

Ingredients:
1 cup almond butter (the Target brand, which is the only store in my area that sells any type of nut butter that isn’t peanut)
1 tsp cinnamon
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 packets of Nectresse
1.5 tsp baking soda
6 tbsp white flour
1 shake of salt
6 tbsp butterscotch chips
4 tbsp applesauce
2 tsp imitation vanilla flavoring

Directions:
Pour everything in a bowl and stir until it’s mixed well. Scoop them into small balls. (I used a small plastic Jelly Belly ice cream scoop, they still came out average sized.) Put the balls into the freezer for 10 minutes while preheating your oven at 350 degrees. Remove cookie balls from the freezer. Spray liquid I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter in your baking pan(s). Place cookie balls in the pan(s) about a half inch a part. Cook for 12 minutes. Remove cookies from oven. Let them cool for a half hour. EAT!

Makes about 15 cookies

Beautilation Picks

Beautilation Picks by missemmamm on Polyvore

Since I am a fan of this talented Etsy seller I had to let all of you know that she is currently running a huge sale on a variety of styles until December 24, 2012. Here are my top picks from her store (not all are on sale, but are definitely affordable). Yes, I’m all over that Jessica Rabbit print! Plus that cut tank top is currently only $12 (you can also choose from other prints in her shop to have put on it). The other pieces are odes to Jawbreaker, Heathers, the Disney Princesses (dominatrix style) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
