‘I’m Too Sexy’ Valentine’s Day Contest

Cosabella Ceylon Camisole and Low Rise Hot Pants on a model - NOT ME

I’m just gonna come out and say it – I’m sexier now than I was 10 years ago.  Or 20 years ago. Hold on tight, there are tangents-a-plenty.

I might have had a better body in my 20s and/or 30s. But back then, I wasn’t nearly as comfortable in my own skin as I am now. Not that I think I’m all that. Believe me, I don’t. Random tangent: I recently went out and bought new jeans for the first time in years.  It was something I didn’t want to do, but had to, because ALL of my jeans were too tight. Even the fat jeans. And then finally it hit me – I’m 40, It’s perfectly OK for me to buy a bigger size.

But aside from my random issues with jeans, I am pretty damn comfortable with my body and how I look. In a way that I couldn’t even imagine being when I was younger.  And that’s really what is about, for me. A state of mind. Another random tangent, to illustrate: I remember a boyfriend I had a long, long time ago who was very fond of sex in the shower.  And back then, I could NEVER get into it because all I could think of was that the bathroom lights were bright and he could see every inch of my nakedness in bad lighting.  Not sexy.  Whereas, now…

Which leads me to this year’s Valentine’s Day contest. As some of you might recall, I did a pretty awesome (post-Valentine-Day’s) contest last year. So I had to top it, right?

This year’s sponsor is the amazing folks at

They’re a new online underwear (and loungewear, accessories, swimwear, athletics and I’m sure I’m missing something…) shop for both men and women. And they’re the perfect partners for this contest because a) wearing pretty lingerie makes me feel even more confident and sexy and b) they have fabulous undies for both men and women. So, this year’s winner will be able to pick out their own amazing undies at (top and bottom for the women, bottom for the guys). ps to this – that picture up there, MY PICK.

Entering the giveaway is easy – leave a comment telling us your favorite love .  The winner will be selected at random. I don’t have a single favorite, but Nat King Cole’s, ‘Sometimes I’m Happy’ is a song that always makes me smile.

I’ll announce the winner on the 14th.

  10. JOHN says:

    “Here and Now” by Luther Vandross is my favorite love song. The song talks about a strong and deep love.
    Just to give you a little bit of the song.
    Luther sings,”One look in your eyes and there I see, Just what you mean to me.”
    “Here in my heart I believe, Your love is all I’ll ever need.”
    The song, “Here and Now” is definitely one of the most meaningful love songs ever written. It gives you an idea of just how much someone can care for another person in their relationship. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day.
