Spice Up Your Love Life with Some Relaxing Massaging Tricks!

Are you running out of ideas to make your love life spicier? Here you can learn how massaging your girl can help you both have a great sexy time. Massaging can please your woman surprisingly well. After all, everyone enjoys a sensual massage after working hard for a long time. Also, if you are being the masseuse, it creates a lot of room for her to feel comfortable.

We could inform you about the vast ways and techniques which professionals use in their massage parlors but it would take a long time! No one is looking for a job at a parlor if they are reading this. Instead, let's cut to the chase and prepare you for a massage with some basic tips and tricks. The following are 10 pieces of advice on how to make your massage more erotic!

Before you rush to the main part of massaging you must ensure she is in the mood for it.

1. Setting the perfect mood.

It is a very important information to remember before beginning your massage. You must make sure that you are setting her mood appropriately so that you can avoid her being uncomfortable. In order to get started make sure that you reduce the lights or light up some scented candles which will enhance the aromas emitted by the medicinal and essential oils.

2. Appropriate music

Music plays a vital role in setting the mood according to how you like. Before you get onto playing any music you must ensure it is soothing and calm. Avoid songs from genres such as heavy metal, electronic music, and similar ones. Decide what you are giving the massage for. If it is just a sexy foreplay before you get wild, you may want to turn on some sexy blues or such sort of songs. If it is just to put her to a sound sleep, you may prefer some slow soothing songs or playing sounds of nature, for instance, the sound of a flowing a river, might actually do the trick.

3. The Oils

Just as its name suggests, essential oils are very important and play a major role in how the massage actually turns out to be. The whole list of oils which are best for massage includes hemp, jojoba, almond, argon, hazelnut and more examples.

You can easily find most oils in local food stores or you might want to check out skin care shops which usually has multiple oils blended together. You can experiment with the oils which might help you to find out the perfect oil for you to enjoy yourself to the maximum during the massage.

By now, you have learned about the first three essential tips to optimise your massage experience. However, if you do not have any idea on how to massage, just setting the mood will be in vain. So we are going to enlighten you on some basic techniques of massaging.

4. Shiatsu

It refers to the style of massage techniques which Japanese widely use in their country to massage. In order to perform it, just place your hands or your fingers on a particular spot while applying adequate pressure and move in a circular way. Attempt to find knots on her back and try to loosen it up. Do not press too hard because you might cause her pain.

5. Compression

It is one of the most well known and commonly used technique in massage. It involves pressing on one part of your body which will result in increasing the flow of blood and relax the muscle up. It is a very useful technique which can be used as a method of warming up before you can continue going into a deeper massage. It feels amazing on the butt too as you put one hand on another and rotate slowly.

6. Stroking

It is generally slow and wide movements using your hands along a part of her wonderful.
You must keep your fingers close together, thumbs parallel to the fingers and palms in total contact with her body. It is such a relaxing technique it will cause her toes to contract.

7. Feet massage

Have her lie down on her back. Start with pressing gently from the heel and go up. Press gently but not too soft. Press a little and use your thumbs. Refrain from pressing hard in small areas as it might lead to severe health problems.

8. Head massage

It can be very relaxing and opens up doors to be intimate with someone you still have not been. Start with pressing the temple gently and massage the forehead. Slowly move towards the hair and press down gently. Lastly, finish it with kissing her ears as it is one of the erogenous areas. also Check out - How to make a woman squirt

9. Friction

It is a very advanced technique and does not require oils often. Basically, it is a focused stroke on certain small areas accompanied by certain pressure and stability.

10. Hand massage

It is almost same as a foot massage. Start closer to the wrist and work your way up as you massage every area of her hand. To finish it off, play with her fingertips. It is something she is going to love.

Here it is....the inspiration for our new kitchen!

While I have always loved white marble, this one really took my breath away!  The distinct veining pattern of Calcutta Oro is exactly what I had in mind for our new kitchen.   The soft creamy grey and white palette will set the design tone.  We are planning to have the existing natural cherry cabinetry which we inherited when we purchased the home repainted a soft white.  The island will be a darker grey tone and for the walls, I am thinking about an easy care vinyl wallpaper like the Thibaut one shown below.  It will give the few walls we have some texture and be easy to clean with busy teens in the house.

So for the downside of this gorgeous marble.  Maintenance.  While nothing will make marble impervious to etching and scratching, stains can be kept at bay with a 15 year guaranteed sealer that will be applied by the fabricator prior to installation.  This is well worth the investment for some peace of mind.

With the material selected, the next decision will be how to treat the edges of the marble.  Our material is only 2 cm thick versus the standard 3 cm.  Many of the more decorative edges will not work on a thinner material.  I prefer a simple flat edge and let the stone be the star of the show.

While I like the thinner 2 cm countertops in an older home,  the island needs to have some presence.  The island edges are going to be mitered and will be 6cm thick for some wow factor.

Technology has made the process of laying out the countertops on the slabs a dream compared to the formerly manual process.  By twisting and turning the pieces, we can have our favorite parts of a slab where we want them.  Isn't it amazing to be able to see exactly how the slabs will look when they are installed?  I love this part of the process.  Seams in this marble full of strong veining pattern would have really detracted from the beauty of the stone.  With our expert technician at Stone Fabricators, we were able to layout the entire kitchen (and my daughter's bathroom!) without a single seam.  Success!!

Linksys Broadband routers work with the IP address 192.168.1.1 and there are also some network routers or network gateway equipment that work with this IP address. The part belongs to the list of all private IP addresses starting from 192.168.0.0 and continuing till 192.168.255.255 which are used all over. The address is used by business computer networks and also for putting up routers that connect to the devices.

The plumber, heating/cooling contractor and to a lesser degree the electrician had their hands full trying to fit everything in our project.  The majority of the pipes fit into the wall behind the pantry / fridge / oven wall of the kitchen and the powder room.

The contractors really worked to problem solve when framing our powder room.  If they had followed the plans exactly, the framing would have visually cut into the stained glass window in the living room.  They solved the problem by adding one step from the landing into the laundry room (and changing from two steps to one to access the new bedroom).  We were delighted as the ceiling in the powder room below is now about 8' instead of 7'6".  In these old houses, one  has to get creative as well as be flexible.

Artwork found!  After removing the drywall from the former laundry room, we discovered that the house originally had a gabled roof (see angled white plaster over the doorway?) and likely a balcony.  Some "artist" put their personal touch on the little porch area with the flower.  Guess you never know what you'll find behind these old walls, right?

Cheers!

There are many reasons people renovate their homes.  Some need additional space, some want to update the finishes  while others want to improve traffic flow or need to address  problem areas.  Our project is all four of the above.  While I am jazzed about having a lovely room for my daughter and am giddy over having marble countertops and a bright cheery kitchen, perhaps the single thing that I am most excited about relates to solving the awkward hallway between the kitchen and living room where the powder room currently resides.

See in the before photo the two areas with highlighting.  The two walls which form the powder room create a walk space so narrow that the doors of the basement and powder room almost touch.

Look how cramped the hallway gets when the doors are open.  I for one will not miss traversing this space in the house.

The stairs behind the current powder room were narrow and steep.  There is another wider set close to the soon to be breakfast room, so these are a duplicate.  I am very much looking forward to their going away.

after floorplan first floor

In the plans, the new powder room is accessed by the former window opening in the old powder room.  It'll be fantastic to have a larger space between the kitchen and the living room.  The other impact from removing the extra set of steps is that it allows us to push the pantry, ovens and refrigerator back.  This extra space will give us a larger island and since I spend a majority of my time in the kitchen from this vantage point, I am really looking forward to having some additional counterspace.

I just love this part of a project!  Figuring out how to utilize space and create a better functioning home is at the heart of why I love my job.

We were blessed with great weather during the early stages of the construction.  The contractors were grateful for the dry conditions as they were working toward getting everything weather tight.

roof 6:4 at rear

One thing that surprised me about the rear elevation was that in order to see the new roof line with the old gables on either side, one has to be a street behind my house.  The reality is that we live in an old historic neighborhood with small lots and with the depth of the addition, the old gables are simply not visible from my yard.

peering through trees 6:4

Peering between the trees, you can glimpse the addition next to the north gable.  It's pretty exciting to see the parapet walls (circa 1980) disappear in lieu of a substantial gable that will be covered in reclaimed clay tiles.

Looking through the door at the landing in the staircase, you can see down to the first floor family room.  This door will give way to a cased opening that will house our laundry room.  Since it will be visible from the front door, making it a showstopping view is a top priority.

With the door open, you can see the missing floor section between the door and the new bedroom for my daughter.  This missing area used to be the laundry room and it is located above the powder room.  Follow along next time to see how we made use of the awkward space in the hallway

5:28 dogs at entry

The contractor fashioned this little entry from the deck so they don't have to come through the house just yet...that day is coming and we so appreciate keeping the dust and noise at bay as long as possible.  Charlie and Lucy seem to know this is a hardhat area and keep watch from the opening!

Till next time!
Cheers,

Laura
