It’s the Ides of March, and so it begins. It’s March Madness -- the annual college basketball tourney that sees men watching countless hours of television and the women in their lives wondering when it will all be over. You may not be into “bracketology” but we’ve got a few ideas to keep you going while the focus of your man’s world becomes college hoops.
1.Check out Pinterest: It’s awesome! And it’s really all for girls. You can collect boards filled with shoes and boards filled with pics of Justin Timberlake, or boards full of your favorite foods. You might find yourself getting just as obsessed about Pinterest as your man is about basketball.
2. Read some guilty pleasures on your Kindle: Everyone’s been talking about 50 Shades Of Grey, a sex new novel that will jump start your libido. While your man is caught up in basketball, indulge your most romantic nature with some romance novels on your e-book reader. No one will know what kind of smut you have hidden between the plain covers and once the basketball is over for the day, you’ll be ready for a little one-on-one action with your mate.
3. Plan a tea party: Round up all of your girlfriends (most of whom will probably also be basketball widows during the month of March) and invite them to have tea and girl talk at a local restaurant. If you want to throw caution to the wind, you can plan your tea party for happy hour and drink wine instead of tea. For once you won’t for guilty for a night out with the girls.
4. Spend a bath & beauty day: With basketball on the television nearly ‘round the clock, you can almost plan on having the master bathroom all to yourself. Take a long bubble bath (with Inttimo by Wet massage & bail oils to soften your skin.) Give yourself a facial mask and an ex-foliating sugar scrub all over your body. Treat yourself and then maybe later you’ll feel like having a quickie in between games.
5. Catch The Madness: Nothing is sexier than a woman who loves sports. If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em. Fill out your own bracket. Pick a team to cheer for. And then make a bet on a game that both you and your partner could enjoy. There’s no reason you can’t watch the games in the privacy of your own home wearing nothing but socks.
