The Male Chest in a Fitted Dress Shirt, That’s Whats Sexy This Week!

I’m not one to shy away from shameless exploitation of the sexes, especially if it’s all in good fun. As we slowly ebb into fall, all those beach bodies on glorious flagrant display are opting to modestly disappear behind the opaque barriers of fabric. With the fall, comes the addition of clothes for the creatures of the beach, setting the stage for a new form of ogling to take place.

The male chest in a well fitted dress shirt, that’s what sexy this week.

I love the cut of a well tailored dress shirt and the way it fits the body. The buttons, the cuffs and collar, yoke, colours and patterns, sewn together to form the garment worn for business, casual, or a hot night out. Well pressed and starched to lay smooth across a well defined chest and dutifully conceal the results of long hours at the gym.

PODCAST with Mark Hughes on Pulling the Trigger

velvet steele transister podcast artwork

Hear me talk the TRUTH about life, love, happiness and how I got here. I talk of sex work, gender, employment, and my life as an activist as one of Vancouver’s fave transsexuals. I had the extreme pleasure to speak with Mark Hughes of Pulling the Trigger in the lead up to PRIDE. What a pleasure to actually express my opinion, something that has gotten me into some trouble, but I don’t truly care. To be a woman with all the right parts for me. It needs to be said. Some of you may like what I have to say, and some won’t……

 

 

Penis bleaching…..

pipedream-ceramix-no6-dildo-black-white_wacky_wednesday_ penis_bleaching

Penis bleaching….. Well here you have it folks the latest out of Thailand. Something else I came across in my travels through internet space I thought worth sharing.

Yes for quite some time anal bleaching has been favoured by many thinking that their lovable and or loved “bullet wound” is just not the right shade and have resorted to the use of lasers,  creams, lotions and potions to get that desired shade.

Vanity has taken many forms, and people go to great “lengths” to obtain that ideal, and I’m no stranger to going under the knife or laser. As a person who has experienced a great many treatments, I have to say there are some that are flat out snake oil concoctions and procedures that I reserve my right to have those opinions. Just ask me, I‘ll tell you what I think.

PRODUCT UPDATE!!

I don’t have any before and after pics to share after using Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care so you’ll have to take my word for it.  I can honestly say that having used only the NCTF-Intensive for the last 2 weeks has actually left my skin feeling more taught, firm, and with better elasticity with fewer fines lines. I received the trio samples today and look forward to using all three in conjunction with the recommendations made by the technicians that first shared and showed us the product those weeks ago. In the meantime I’ve reposted the details below for you to read and learn about what Filorga NCTF is all about. I’ll update as the weeks progress with how my skin feels and looks. 

For those wishing to give it a try or switch your routine and product regimen, the Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care will be available February 14/2018 at Shoppers Drug Mart, and Nordstroms.UPDATE_Filorga_Paris_NCTF-Intensifs_Anti_Aging_Skin_Care_trio

REPOST:

My recent attendance of the informational evening on the soon to be made available product from Filorga Paris. The introduction of their NCTF Reverse Range which contains more than ten times the concentration of Filorga’s patented NCTF than the other skincare products within Filorga. It’s designed to be the consumer version of their medical product, the concentrated skincare range that contains the same revitalizing formulation found in their professional injectable treatments. Most notably we were shown the NCTF-Essence, NCTF-Intensive, and the NCTF-Reverse. Used on the skin in that order twice daily, morning and night.

The ideology behind the introduction of this line is to bring the medical service of injections home to the consumer in a topical form, and in particular for those not quite sure they are ready for a trip to the surgeon’s office for injections to invigorate and revitalize aging, tired skin.

As a user of home based skin care products, I was eager to hear and see what this product was all about. That’s not to say I haven’t had my fair share of doctor assisted treatments, but I do try and maintain what can at home in between those expensive sessions. For me prevention goes a long way and I’ll do anything I can, within reason, to keep my skin looking youthful, vital, and alive.

Filorga Paris NCTF-Intensifs Anti Aging Skin Care 7We started off by meeting the informative and wonderful people from Filorga who helped develop the product and bring it the consumer. The presentations were clear and well presented and introduced us to the microsphere technology they were using in their product to do the work it does. I asked what I had to ask and my questions were answered with very informative statements, but, we know that actions speak louder than words and I for one was eager to see what the product looked like, and felt like going on the skin.

The NCTF-Essence is geared as primer for the skin to allow for maximum absorption when the next product is applied. It absorbs quite readily and has a scent like a fragrant tea. I rather enjoyed it.

The next application came from the NCTF-Intensive, a combination of serum and lotion type of liquid that doesn’t run or drip, is scent free, and absorbs right away.

The last application was in the form of the NCTF-Reverse which is considered the daily moisturizer that is active all day. This is the one that is nourishing with nutritious fatty acids and Vitamin E, ideal for dry skin. It delivers on wrinkle treatment with retinol to stimulate collagen and elastin and contains Hyaluronic acid to plump the skin. It provides treatment to the firmness of the skin by stimulating collagen production. Provides radiance with natural Vitamin C which prevents the synthesis of melanin. It has vitamin A & H to stimulate cell renewal and Vitamin E for fight against free radicals.

I’ll start by saying that it was nice to see only 3 products in this application process, because I’ve seen many many more steps to be taken just get the damn cream on! If your a busy person, you know that those extra few minutes make all the difference, and when your layering product after product, it makes a person wonder. I have to say that these three absorbed quickly and didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, shiny, or as though I wanted to wash it off right away. My skin was breathing!

These products will be making their way to the consumer on February 14th at Nordstrom’s and at Shoppers Drug Mart. I’ll be making sure to give it all a thorough examination when it arrives. They also boast visible results in 7 days, who knows, maybe I’ll be switching products!

Luscious Legwear, That’s What Sexy This Week

sexy_this_week_Luscious_legwear_1

Luscious legwear in the form of stockings, stay-ups, or pantyhose. Legwear that comes in a multitude of colours, patterns, deniers, and sizes to adorn the appendages of women, and the men that dare. The final accessory to an outfit, to enhance, accentuate, cover and adorn, luscious legwear, that’s what sexy this week.

Leggings and legwear have been worn for ages, by the late great kings and queens, to the courtesans of Europe, the Giesha of Japan, and the stylish of today. Originally made of linen, cotton, wool or silk, they were worn for warmth, but as hemlines rose and legs were exposed, so to did demand. It wasn’t until 1939 when DuPont introduced nylon, an affordable, durable, sheer alternative was born. It wasn’t until 1959 that the pantyhose made their debut and rivalled that of stockings, soon to surpass sales as the new alternative.

Rising even higher hemlines made sure pantyhose stayed on top of sales causing a sharp decline in the sales of stockings, where it has remained to this day, sales only rivalled by the advent of stay-ups.

I’m going to start this review off with a little bit off a RANT!

As Canadian who resides in Canada, North America, I question why products are released after they have already been made available to the masses in other countries? Most notably Europe, then Asia, Australia, and then to us lowly miscreants here in North America. It frustrates me to no end, as if we in this part of the world don’t want the new and improved, or just the plain new! It would be nice to see that change, even if just a little.

Soft Silky Bed-Sheets for Sexy This week

sexy-this-week-soft-silky-bed-sheets-1

Soft silky bed sheets draped across a bed, and wrapped around a mattress. Fabrics that come in a multitude of colours and patterns, fibres and thread counts. Sheets to enmesh a nude body for a bit of cooling on a sensuous summer’s eve or warmth for a cold winter’s night. Alone or accompanied, sheets that comfort and soothe a weary body, a tired mind, or a napping babe. Bed sheets that cocoon and protect for watching a good movie or curl up in with a good book. Soft silky bed sheets, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Transgender Day of Remembrance TDOR

Transgender-day-remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, is observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. However, for many of us it means so much more and in different ways. Transgender Day of Remembrance, that’s what’s important this week.

FingerNails, Long and Luscious, with Holiday Colours Worth Getting from CND Review

fingernails-long-luscious-cnd-1

My finger nails are something I always have! It’s just one element that goes into being me!

Long luscious fingernails that I feel finish and compliment my hands. Something I know a lot of other women feel the same way, just as they do about their hair. For me its all about the total ook from top to bottom.

Yes I’m high maintenance, but it’s maintenance I look after no one else. I choose it, so I work on it! Starting from my health from the inside out, eat right, trips to the gym, my hair, make-up, clothes and the finer things. 

Again my fingernails are no exception to that rule, and I’ve added them to my schedule of monthly maintenance! It’s a treat I give to myself and I’m very appreciative of that fact, to be able to treat myself to some of these finer things in life I covet. I work hard, and some would say I play hard. Meh!
