My First Anniversary Bash Is On

It’s halfway through the month, and we’re only days away from Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Those of you in warmer climates haven’t been too affected; but the poor bastards (like me) who just had to dig our way out of Storm Stella in the Midwest and Eastern U.S. have just about had enough. We all need a little something to look forward to right now, so I figured it’s a great time to get my Anniversary Bash going.

Below is the Calendar of Carousal followed by descriptions of the events. Extra activities and giveaways will be added along the way, so subscribe or check back frequently to be notified of what has been released.

Enjoy!

Pot Pocket Giveaway | 6 Prizes!

Pot Pocket Giveaway is Open

This giveaway is a neat little invention that I stumbled across on Twitter and at the New England Cannabis Network (NECANN) convention in Boston – the Pot Pocket

We’ve all had that Cheech and Chong moment where we’ve gone to look for that joint we may or may not have forgotten about in our pocket, and it comes out looking like a used straw wrapper that Bigfoot sat on.

So worry no more, Pot Pocket and I are going to take care of you. We’re giving away 2 Pot Pocket Grand Prizes, and 4 Pot Pocket stickers to the runner-ups.

What is Kinkly, Who Are These ‘Sex Blogging Superheroes,’ and Why Do I Care?

Blogging didn’t even exist yet when I was born in ’85, and shoddy dial-up Internet didn’t reach US homes until the 90’s. Growing up as an 80’s/90’s kid, you relied solely on books for information. If you wanted to learn or understand anything, yes, you had to go to this place called a ‘Library’ and scour through books (with no Ctrl-F) endlessly until you found what you were looking for. As you can imagine or have experienced, this is very time-consuming, and mostly unhelpful.

This practice was fine for book reports and learning about the Civil War, but as a developing adolescent there were only so many books for me about ‘What is this vagina thing?,’ ‘Oh-I own something called a G-spot?,’ and later in life, ‘My partners don’t make me orgasm so there’s probably something wrong with me, right?’ I remember sitting in the corner of a Barnes and Noble a few times growing up reading titles such as “Where Did I Come From?” and “What’s Happening to My Body?,” taking care to have a Highlights magazine keep the book hidden.

Ophelia’s First Anniversary Bash – Giveaways, Reviews, Activities, and Stray Llamas

Thoughts With a Dildo in Hand has existed in my mind for a couple of years now, and I finally released it to the world just over one year ago. For my first anniversary, I’m throwing a month-long virtual bash in your honor. After all – I’d just be talking to myself if I didn’t have my faithful readers.

So, thank you.

To celebrate, I’ll be reviewing some awesome products and giving away a bunch more. I’ll be sharing personal stories of other ‘firsts’ I’ve had, and have other fun things to do too. There will also be llamas.

New Giveaway – Ultra Low Drag Dab Rig/Bubbler by Chameleon Glass

Chameleon Glass and I have been following each other on Twitter for quite a while now, and their glasswork is absolutely beautiful. We have some mutual Twitter followers, so it seemed like a natural fit to work together. They’ve sent me their Complete Solution to try out, and I’ll be telling you all about it later this month! So far, I’m definitely impressed.

We decided we’d like to do a giveaway, so Chameleon Glass was awesome enough to volunteer one of their own pieces – the ‘Reynolds’ Ultra Low Drag Rig from their exclusive McCoy Oilers rig line. It’s a crafted dab rig, but they’re including both the dab nail and the flower attachment for dry herb so you can experience both! Not only does it look pretty neat, it’s also built from SCIENCE!

February 10 Prize Giveaway | Haze V3 Dual Vaporizer

vape6

After reviewing and loving the Haze V3 Dual Vaporizer here, the owner at Vaped.com decided he’d like to give one away to my awesome readers. I love that it has two chambers that you can load up separately with dry herb, wax, concentrates, liquid, or one of each. The extra battery always comes in handy in an emergency when the battery dies ‘in action,’ so you’ll never be stuck with a dead vape.

This is a pretty sweet giveaway – the vape is worth $250, and there are 10 total prizes. That’s so 9 extra people aren’t sad that they didn’t win the Haze V3. 🙂
