The Beautiful Colours of Springtime, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

sexy-this-week-Colours-of-Springtime

The beautiful colours of springtime, that’s what’s sexy this week.

I’m an old punk rocker from way back. Goth, alternative, new age, new wave, but one thing that was consistent was my trade mark black. My black wardrobe from head to toe! It made me feel strong and confident, slim and sexy, and it looked cool! It still makes me feel all those things, and I know I look good in black, and I know, I wear it well. Trust me there is nothing like sexy black and I still love to wear it.

However, over the last 10 years or so, for reasons I have no answers to, I started to introduce colours into my wardrobe. Beautiful colours to reflect my ever changing emotions, passions, and personality. Colours that are also a reflection of the ever changing seasons that we have in this beautiful country I call home, Canada.

As I’ve written before, I find it interesting how the fashion world for the most part dictates when colours are to be worn, keeping the darker months dark and the brighter months bright. I wear what I want and when I want, all year long, and not because someone tells me to or that it is written in a book somewhere as gospel, but because……I……want….to!

How about you?

Springtime, when the plants and flowers are bursting alive with life and vibrant colour. Attitudes are uplifted, moods elevated, and passions alive. Spring has sprung, as it always does, each and every year.

What a better time to be uplifted if you aren’t the rest of the year. Time to celebrate, dress it up, live it up, love life. Get out in the open air and take it all in, breathe it, see it, be it. Put on the clothes, do your hair and make-up the way you want with bright vivid options.

Go on do it, uplift yourself with the beautiful colours of springtime, I am!

Lip Prints

sexy-this-week-lip-prints-1

Lip prints left behind for all to enjoy!

The application of lipstick truly is an art form. Luscious lips enhanced in vivid sensual colours to enlarge, define and captivate curious onlookers are all the rage world wide. Well maybe not the “rage”, but certainly a fashion statement that for those in the know are worn well for all the right reasons.

Reasons of my own, but reasons surely shared by the many who adorn those beautiful lips, and certainly those who adore them. Yes I’ve written about painted lips before, and I know I’ll be doing it again and again. Musings that don’t tell the average person who “get’s it” to think twice about it, but rather hopefully encourage those that don’t.

There’s something primal about pouty lips, the frame to the orifice of the face that can bark an order, coo commands, or whisper sweet nothings. The delicate frame that starts off with the drawing of a gentle line of colour from outside corner to outside corner. Accentuating already pouty lips, or enhancing the weak. Using lipstick to paint between those lines, and in my case, always in my case, the slathering of gloss for that added punch.

In the flesh? Simply mesmerizing, but lip prints left behind?!

An even greater lasting impression for those blessed with the pleasure of glimpsing the imprinted rim of a glass. Stamped like a badge of honour, left behind for the thought inclined to foster a fantasy about who those lips belonged too, the personality attached, and the stories they tell.sexy-this-week-lip-prints-2

Prints of desire, intrigue, and possibly of disgust, and none the less, lip prints that command attention. Yes, I write not only of my own thoughts, but those of the many others who’ve dared to let go and dream beyond those stains, evocative, provocative, and beautiful thoughts.

I love to see the residue cosmetic that once enhanced a set of lips. I always see it, as though i somehow know where to look, call it sixth sense. Next time you’re out and about, look around you for that tell tale smudge of colour and let your imagination run wild.

It’s not unlike that of a finger print, layered and loaded with hidden stories.

Quiet Reflection and Contemplation, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

Quiet reflection and contemplation, that’s what sexy this week.

For many of us, we’re moving at the speed of light into a brick wall or two, not giving ourselves a chance to slow down with time for ourselves. We’re wired to the world, attached to anything and everything hoping for that next big break. The “big break” we are conditioned to believe is just around the corner.

We are wired to social media, posting if not once, but several times a day exposing parts of our lives we wouldn’t share with our parents. Feeling guilty if we miss a beat and in the process letting down fans and followers. Better yet, as the influencers many of you are, showing and selling products you’ve never even used, let alone know much about.

Then there’s the cost of living! Inflation doesn’t stop, it only seems to go up and up and up creating a whole different type of stress when it comes to paying the bills. Work work work, all work and no play, most certainly doesn’t allow for a time out moment. Most of us are way too busy living to work, when we should be working to live, and enjoy life.

Yes it gets stressful when the bills aren’t paid and you lag behind, I’m no stranger to that. However, a valuable lesson I learned in the recent past was making time for some self care.

Remember that, self care, is any necessary human regulatory function which is under individual control, deliberate and self-initiated for one’s personal well-being and health?

Many of us don’t find, make, or set aside the time, but we sure can make enough excuses!

So……ENOUGH EXCUSES, find, make, and set aside the time for you, and only you!

Put on a robe, leave the glamour behind and have that extra coffee, enjoy the view, tune out, meditate, read that book, hit the gym, ride a bike, or do simply nothing at all and have some serious quiet time for some much needed self-reflection and contemplation.

Go ahead, do it, you deserve it!

Erotic Art, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

sexy-this-week-erotic-art-larry-vincent-garrison

Erotic art, that’s what sexy this week.

We all know I love art of multiple kinds, but one particular genre of the sexuality kind I truly love, is the erotic. I find it compelling, inviting, thought provoking, and downright sexy. To be inspired by erotic art is the very least I can write, because its a combination of all these elements that help to put a smile on a person’s, and their mind!

A Playful Flirt and a Giggle

sex-this-week-Playful-Flirt-Giggle

A playful flirt and a giggle, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Human interaction is super important, interaction of the positive kind. Forget the stalkers, sleazebags, and despicable low-lifes who truly only deserve a baseball bat upside the head for a little tune-up. No I’m talking about the attention from playful fun when one is out and about, that comes from innocent friendliness.

Innocent is the key word here, since many interpret these actions as seduction. Misinterpretations made by people who don’t have the skills to know the difference, as it shouldn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out.

Over a coffee with my girlfriend Brit, a sassy buxom blonde, I sat and listened as she told me of her exploits while on her last holiday. Exploits I realized, are not far off from my own when I’m out in the world. What we also agreed on was the fun that came from a playful compliment, or a flirt. Fun that we both knew wasn’t going to go anywhere except validation as the people we are. Gregarious, life loving gals, who dress-up for every occasion including a trip to the laundry room!

The Art of Casual Conversation with a Stranger, for Sexy This Week

sexy-this week- lost-art-casual-conversation-with-strangers-coffee-shop-1

The art of casual conversation with a stranger, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Actually, it’s more like the lost art of casual conversation, and all a person needs to do is look around themselves once they’ve unglued their faces from their phones. Those little devices we’ve wired ourselves to the world with, the electronic annoyance that has become for many, a buffer from actual connection to the land of the living.

Cleavage and Plunging Décolletage, That’s What’s Sexy This Week.

loren_mansfield_Cleavage_Plunging_Décollatage_Sexy_This_Week

The sensuous line and curves the cleavage beholds of the plunging décollatage, that’s what’s sexy this week.

Wikipedia defines Cleavage as the exposed area between a woman’s breasts lying over the sternum, and refers only to what is visible with clothing (or dense, nontransparent body art) that includes a low-cut neckline, the décolletage. Yes, this a shameless ditty about the titty on display, because a little or a lot of objectification can go a long way.

My Biggest Fear

west-end-sex-workers-memorial

During a recent writing exercise for a performance project in which I was involved, each of us was asked to write about our biggest fear. Not much, does scare me as I’ve learned to be strong, but sometimes that little bug can get under your skin and stay there forever. Like everyone else on the planet, I’m a person to, with emotions and feelings and my steely cold reserve is just my defence mechanism of a, believe it or not, painfully shy person.

This is mine, this is what I wrote.

The Pretty Little Leaf

Pretty Red Little Leaf

The Pretty little leaf is what’s sexy this week!

There I was, shit, showered and shaved, dressed and ready for the day, over my morning anxiety with my “kick ass” attitude dialed in at a level ten as I went out the door to face the day. My clothes perfectly coordinated of complimentary colours, matching jewelry, makeup applied with the precision of surgeon, and my hair all neatly hot-rollered and set. I was ready! With chin held high, shoulders back, tits out, and stomach in, I walked to the bus stop to patiently wait with all the other morning riders.

On the bus, I made myself comfortable for the 15 minute ride to the skytrain reading the morning paper as we rode over the bumps and potholes that dotted the downtown streets of beautiful Vancouver; the city I call home. The bus’s arrival at the skytrain always greats me with a certain amount of irony, its the skytrain, but at this juncture it runs underground. It always gives me a brief moment of contemplation as I descend to the train’s platform quietly crop dusting as I make my way deeper into the ground.

Fairytales and Castles, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen, Capital Region of Denmark, Denmark

My family hails from a small but steeped in history country, Denmark, a country of fairytales and castles. Soft rolling hills, green pastures, 1000 year old cities. A country surrounded by bodies of water that cradle this now peaceful land like two gentle hands that meet at the tip top in a place called Skagen. The trip to Skagen is magical as you drive you through countrysides of soft rolling hills, and sand dunes that have a life of their own, that literally eat up the buildings of yesteryear. Creamy white sand reclaiming what man has made returning it to the elements from whence it came. Sexy This week-fairytales-castles-Skagens-sand-engulfed-churchA road trip we took many times through country dotted with architecture and structures from a time gone by. Structures of stone and metal, manors, and castles of grandeur, that for most people can only imagine seeing in their dreams. Dreams that bring to life stories, feelings, and thoughts of hope and the future, fairytales and castles, that’s what sexy this week.
