Beauty truly is in the eyes of the beholder, and art is subject to the same, the interpretations of each and every individual person. The personal tastes of one person are completely different from that of the next, what I like as art, you may not. I try to find beauty in all I see, if not the whole picture, then an element or two of it. I’m busy keeping myself stimulated, inspired, and motivated to keep the dreams alive. Appreciating the creations produced for my enjoyment, art in the eyes of the beholder, that’s what sexy this week.

 

sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-leonardo-davinci-mona-lisaSpeaking for myself, I have a very different way of approaching life that not many people ascribe to. I’m busy trying to find beauty wherever I go and in whatever I see. From the animate to the inanimate, and some art, just like some people, can be down right ugly! Yes I said it, people can be ugly as well, and I do my best not to dwell on that and move on when it’s clear there is no beauty to behold.

Art appreciation makes it easier to find that beauty, that stimulation, inspiration and motivation, to be emotionally moved from the enjoyment. To observe grande scale works and be captivated from a single element that draws the viewer into a world of fantasy. To invoke  memories from the past, or grow ideas for the future. To be blown away by awe-inspiring, images, paintings and sculptures.sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-mona-lisa-punk-rock

To not just see, but literally taste, touch, smell and hear the colours, as the vibrancy comes alive. Story telling through engaging imagery to play on and in the mind of the beholder, a distraction from the possibility of the daily mundane. To find if not one, but many elements of beauty and be forever stimulated, inspired, and motivated to keep the dreams alive.sexy-this-week-art-in-the-eye-of-the-beholder-Mona-Lisa-Makeover

Art for art’s sake for all to enjoy.

  

Dramatic Luscious Lip Colours For Fall, That’s What’s Sexy This Week.

Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-ravishing-gloss-red

Lipstick shades come and go, dramatic luscious colours, and throughout the year colour vibrancy changes along with the seasons. In spring time colours lighten up, for the most part summers go nude, and with the fall, colours deepen and intensify. Colour used to make up for the drab of the impending “doom” of the fall and winter seasons. Seasons portrayed as dull and grey and reflected in the fashions of the day, all except the lips. Pouty sexy lips to wear punches of colour through to the returning spring. Dramatic luscious colours in fall, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-burnt-orange

I believe in lip colour all year long, spring, summer, fall and winter, as with my love of the four seasons, so is my love of lipstick. Fall however seems to be that time of year when lip colours get stronger, because of what I believe is fashion dictating style. I’m ok with that, my only wish is for people to wear those dramatic luscious colours all year long.

For now making due with the colours offered in fall, like the changing the leaves, colours that are bright, vivid, and alive. A candy shop offering sweet treats to tempt and entice you; passion fruit pinks, lemon drop yellows, caramel creams, gummy bear greens and milk chocolate browns.

High fashion colours like burnt oranges, ravishing reds, chocolate browns, pulsating purples, blackest blacks, you get the idea enough to set those lips and hearts a quiver. Enough to grab and hold the gaze of a fleeting glance. Lips lined or not, glittery glossed, or flat matte lips, alive with colour and attitude. Come hither, or so they may seem, lips in control, lips in command, voluminous lips adorned to demand attention, not for the faint of heart, but to make the heart faint. A shameless plug for Kat Von D, she’s got that figured out!

 

A simple cosmetic that wields such power. To twist a tube and reveal a stick of sweat drenched colour, a wand unscrewed that “pops” into life to glide across eager waiting lips. To feel the cool wet paint cover warm, blood filled organs. To taste it, lick it, touch it. You know you want to, now go ahead and kiss it.Dramatic-Sexy-Lip Colours-for-Fall-pulsating-purple

 

Just do as your told!

Beautifully manicured sexy nails, that’s what sexy this week. Many of us remember being told  “don’t bite your nails” which doesn’t stop some folks from gnawing away, while others take great care to file, buff, extend and polish the horn-like envelope that cover the tips of fingers and toes. Beautifully, painstakingly painted, and well cared for to finish off the fingers and toes, beautifully manicured nails, that is what’s sexy this week.

For millennia, well manicured nails have been much coveted, a status symbol of days gone by that have attracted the attention of all sexes. Young or old are drawn to looking at the finishes that adorn the tips. Bright shiny, or matte colours, patterns, nail art and little sculptures, even jewelled adornment now add to the allure of a finished nail.

Finished nails that further refine the hand, slenderizing and elongating chubby fingers or help give the illusion of smoothing out bony and wrinkly knuckles. Shapes of all kinds to match a genre or particular look. Pointed daggers, or soft almond, rounded or tapered square, long, short, any length for the desires of the wearers.

stw-beautifully-manicured-sexy-nails-white-black-polka-dotsNatural nail, acrylic, acrylic with tip, gel or gel overlay, to name a few. The choices are endless to match limitless personalities, long luscious nails to grip a glass, caress a face or scratch a back. Long luscious nails in a tight firm grip……………       

A Change of Seasons for Sexy This Week

sexy-this-week-a-change-of-seasons-Autumn

A change of seasons, that’s what sexy this week!  I truly believe I’m very fortunate living where I do in the world. Everyone living here has the pleasure of four distinct weather changes. We have our spring, summer, fall, and winter. Seasons that bring with them a change in air temperature, pressure, sun, rain, plant life; seasons very distinct and unique and full of attitude. Seasons much needed for change to take place and keep the cycle of life going, to hibernate, recharge, re-stimulate, be re-born so to speak.

sexy-this-week-a-change-of-seasons-winter

Ontario, where my family settled after immigrating to Canada is a province that truly has a set of very distinct seasons. Autumns of fire in patches of yellow, orange and red, bright vivid colours across a painted landscape. A rich visual delight, admired by many on long trips to the north. A short display before turning brown and crumbling to dust as the leaves fall to the ground.

Winters white and cold, and snow sparkling like diamonds when the moon hits it just right. Cold air that kisses a face peeking out from a heavily clothed body braving the cold to play in the snow, or glideacross sheets of ice. Temperatures just right for the fashion addicted to layer upon layer, clothes they don’t have the opportunity to wear the rest of the year. Clothes none the less they just had to have.

sexy-this-week-a-change-of-seasons-springtimeSpringtime when the temperature rises melting ice and snow.  Running waters soaking into the softening ground to nourish and stimulate the sleeping roots of flowers and trees, to spring forth and grow anew. Warmth that awaken slumbering creatures deep in hibernation, that now lumber out of dens and burrows to seek out food and replenish fat stores long since depleted.

Summers in full bloom, explosions of colour, clear blue skies, elevated temperatures both in the air, and of the body. Activity abounds in all aspects of life, before the autumn creeps back to start the process all over again. A continuous cycle of life, that whatever the season, the whole year of change most definitely stimulates me.sexy-this-week-a-change-of-seasons-summer

I do have my favourite seasons, and like all life on the planet, I need my downtime to recharge and be re-stimulated. I cannot take the constant of one over another, I burn out and whither, and if one thing about being brought up in Ontario has taught me is an overwhelming appreciation of the beauty in the changing seasons. 

Change is good!

Hosiery, The Perfect Accessory For All Legs

bare-legs

As the temperature cools with the summer nearing it’s end, and bare legs still fresh in our minds, it’s difficult to muster up the desire to cover up those gams with clothes of some kind. 

stockings-garters

The cuffs and hemlines that rose, now get lower, but an age old solution to that situation that’s not only practical, but down right sexy, is hosiery, the perfect accessory for all legs, that’s what sexy this week.

Choosing to wear stockings, stay-ups, pantyhose or leggings is the decision of the wearer, but maybe, just maybe, I can help convince you to put on a pair with a few descriptives of my own.

Did I say I liked to wear hosiery? Well I do, and I have quite the collection of my own silky smooth soft coverings. I love my stockings held up with a garter belt, but I also love my stay-ups for days when I’m going commando under a skirt or dress. Or try a pair of pantyhose that stretch across a firm ass as the best shapely adornment possible for those that want to caress, but the sign says “don’t touch!”

Beach Ready Bodies at Anytime, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

Sexy-this-week-beach-ready-bodies-2

The lead up to the summer each and every year is full of folks opting for the last minute fix to get that media manipulated ideal of the beach ready body. People falling into the brain washing of a quick solution, and buying that quick fix to get lean and muscled, god-like for what the mental conditioning has led them to believe. On the flipside there are those who never fall into that expertly crafted trap, those who are safe and secure in the knowledge they are happy with the body they currently have, or even care for that matter. A body that is not part of the “media manipulated ideal” and ready to hit the beach at any time. Bodies not controlled by the mainstream ideal, beach ready bodies at anytime, that’s what sexy this week.

Sexy This Week; Focus

STW 50) Focus

A central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity, to concentrate: to focus one’s thoughts; verb (used without object), focused, focusing or focussed, focussing. To be or become focused.

We need it, we try to do it, we work hard at maintaining it, and struggle very hard to keep it, for the long or short term. With a goal, you need it, it’s not a want, and with it, a certain amount of strength is required to keep it. With your eyes on the prize, you need it, focus, and that’s what sexy this week.

Distraction is easy, and like a bad, if I may be so blunt, FART, it is ever creeping and lingers all the time and everywhere. You hear it, you smell, and sometimes you see it.STW_50_horse_blinders

I’ll switch gears and use another descriptive, but I think you got the point with the previous 🙂

Sexy this Week: Goals

stw_goals_fitness

We all want a positive outcome to everything we do in our lives, no matter what that is. For me and those in my life, be they acquaintances or my close personal friends, those results are of the happy, life affirming kind. The challenges we set for ourselves as human beings in getting from point A to B putting us through it. Without the fear, excitement, and the need, or want to make a change, most will never get there. Making a plan and committing to it, to get to that end point, GOALS, that’s what sexy this week.

In younger years we set them without actually knowing what they are. We go to school, take up sports, get involved in the arts, or take up hobbies, things or actions done because they are for the most part fun. We weren’t actually thinking about what that meant to take on interests and work to a purpose. (more…)

Sexy This Week: Difference

Teddy and Velvet

Stupid, idiot, asshole, phobic, moronic, obtuse, shallow, unintellectual, witless, all other words used to describe the word ignorant. A word I much rather prefer to use because it so blatantly, and quite simply says it in one word, IGNORANT! Unfortunately there are a lot of people on the planet that are just that, nothing more, nothing less, just ignorant. Ignorant of those in society that are different from themselves, different, a quality that should be celebrated, coveted, cherished and adored, difference, and that’s what’s sexy this week.

Life isn’t easy for those that are different, trust me I know, I’m faced with adversity each and every day of my life. For the most part I am fairly resilient and can shrug it off, but when someone is in your face with words that cut deeper than a knife, that then leads to actions of a negative kind, it’s hard to turn and walk away.group-hug

For me as a woman who just so happens to be transsexual, I love that I am different, and I never thought I would. I was always trying to blend in with the crowd and fade away. However, it didn’t take me long to understand that being out, loud, and proud, was, and is where it’s at!

Sexy This Week: High Heels

Most women can never have a enough of them, and just when you think they do, another masterful piece of art catches the eye of an admirer out for a stroll on the high street of shopping in any cosmopolitan city. The endless designs, the bright shiny colours, the fabrics, the skins, the buckles, laces, zippers, and snaps, and oh the heels. Those talons reaching ever higher, killer spikes, barely able to balance on, the high heels, and that’s what’s sexy this week.little girl in high heels

From a young age, the unbeknownst connoisseur already has a seed that’s been deeply planted into the subconscious mind, it may just be genetics, rooted over time deep within your DNA. Young girls long to run around in Mommy’s shoes dressed as the perfect princess, even the boys are want to try them on!
