Another Family Advent Activity: Advent Stockings

A number of years ago I came across an idea somewhere of a fun way to count down the days till Christmas. We had done the advent chains, where you start with 24 paper chains and you rip one off each day so the kids (the little ones, especially) can see how many days are left until the big day. We also do advent calendars, as this is something I remember from my childhood. But my favorite Christmas countdown, and it seems to be my kids' favorite as well, is our advent stockings....more

Alternative Fashion Finds: Work Clothes with Personality

As a professional woman who must dress the part I am just fine with wearing Business Attire to work. It's a safe choice to wear a black suit that includes a skirt, a blouse, and a jacket. Respectable even. But, if I were honest, I'd say that it gets entirely too boring at times. It's like a uniform and I have plenty of them, but I also have some "fun" items, too. Mostly, this includes wearing brightly colored tights with some of my outfits or funky jewelry that spices everything up or even scarves....more

How To Solve The Missing Sock Scenario: 3 Socks Are Better Than 2

Well, as a sock lover myself (here is a link to a photo album of over 70 of my favorite pairs - yes, I'm obsessed), I was delighted to come across the charming and innovative idea of writer-director Edwin Heaven, called Throx....more

Sex Requires Versatility

So I'm writing my first blog here. Since this is in the sex section I guess I can say that I'm popping my cherry on BlogHer! So I'm kind of excited. I was reminded of a valuable sex lesson today during a hurried session with my husband. We had 20 minutes. He is a skilled lover and can last as long as I need to get there before he gets there so 20 minutes is not long at all for us. We started and for some reason I was unable to lubricate (can I say get wet without people getting their panties in a wad?)....more

Why Write A Stockings Blog?

Stockings Addict has been around for almost 18 months now. The other day, while feeling a bit nostalgic and reading some old articles from last year, I realized I have never once explained to you, my readers, why I write this blog. In recent weeks, several meaningful conversations with fellow bloggers have made it abundantly clear to me why it is I do what I do. I've narrowed by thoughts down to four general statements, and I'd like to share them here....more
