sexy-this-week-63-his-and-her-pedicures-1

There’s fun to be had in his and her pedicures. Couples spending time together, enjoying each other’s company, sharing a laugh, or an uncontrolled giggle from a foot massage, and the application of a daring shade of polish on his, and her toes. His and her pedicures that’s what sexy this week.

In today’s age, the so called “modern age” women have been getting pedicures since most of us can remember. However it is noted that it wasn’t until the year 2000 that the pedicure started to grow in popularity. Mostly amongst the women and a few daring men, brave enough to roll up their trousers and show just how much of a man he truly is by letting a complete stranger get to work prettying up those feet and toes.                                                                                         sexy-this-week-63-his-and-her-pedicures-3

Historically pedicures have been performed for over 4000 years. Babylonian noblemen using solid gold tools to primp and preen their hands and feet. Nail polish traced back to 3000 BC in China with red and black as the colours of choice for the royals of the Ming Dynasty. The Egyptians go as far back as 2300 BC with carvings recorded in the tombs of the Pharaohs, again with varying shades of red used by those of the highest social standing. Did you know that military commanders of Egypt and Rome painted their toenails to match their lips before heading off to battle? Talk about getting ready for that performance!

All those years of fabulous feet and toes, and suddenly nothing? I’m sure the Victorians had something to do with the decline in pedicures amongst the men, at least publicly. However this is the new age we live in, and I say, “dammit guys, get out there get those feet and toes, cleaned, scraped, massaged and a lovely colour applied to those toes!” Let’s be honest, in the winter months, no one will see those toes on all you macho men worried about what your buddies will say. You’re wearing socks!

Spring and summer might be different when most of you get out those style less things you slip your feet into, the flip flop. UGH! Jazz up those feet and toes, hold your head high, chest out, shoulders back, stomach in, and strut!sexy-this-week-63-his-and-her-pedicures-4

Of course you could be one of those guys whose Domme is ordering you to get a little pretty in pink, devilish red, or smouldering in some dark and sexy shade. Colours just masculine enough to make you wriggle those toes in naughty delight on full display.

Do it boys, and be a man! It’s sexy this week!

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.

Hey, there are many times when the human condition takes over, we’re not all that different from each other.

The train ride is usually uneventful, and fast. A total of 8 minutes and I am there at the other end ready to transfer to the next bus to take me to my final destination and start work. However today, my “kick ass” attitude has me deciding to walk that 20 minute jaunt rather than bus it.

Feeling good and halfway there, I’m suddenly assaulted with a heavy and loud plop onto the back of my head, and gorgeous, I remind you, neatly hot-rollered and set hair. My cool calm confident demeanor was suddenly destroyed. I could feel the anger rising up in me like the red liquid in a candy thermometer that quickly rising to that hard crack stage. I was mad!

All I could think about was that big blob of fresh steaming bird shit mixing with my beautiful hair with the moistness settling on my scalp. I know it’s considered good luck to have that dropped on anyone, but today, I just wasn’t feeling the luck. Reaching up with my leather gloved hand, I expected to wipe away the remnants of that casually dropped bird bomb. Instead, as I picked out what had settled on my hair, I was presented with a small red leaf.

A pretty little leaf, perfect in all manner, and still glistening with the not yet evaporated morning dew. I stopped to study this beautiful leaf! As I began to look closer, multi coloured, almost holographic shades of red were glowing back at me. This leaf was beautiful!

I followed the stem through to the veins that spread out across this leaf to form the panels of colour between each vein. Colour that started as a lovely warm orange bleeding into a fuschia red, deepening to lip smacking crimson, and finishing at a warm purplish brown. Although it was a dying leaf, the colours were to many to describe, yet in this dying leaf, still vibrant, alive, it was beautiful!

A little leaf that in an instant made me boil over with anger at my perception of it being a dreaded bird turd.

Questions formulating, from why to how resulting in the heat of my anger. Why did I get so mad? Why did I let that happen? How is it that a simple thought created that anger? Was it much deeper?

I didn’t want to delve to deep into my mind there on the street, but rather shrug it off, laugh at the absurdity of my reaction and move on. In future, to learn to not get so heated, because whether a bird dropping or leaf, it shouldn’t have mattered to that extreme. Rather to believe and know that I need to slow it down, look at life from the perspective I always did and usually do.

The perspective that life is beautiful, bird shit and all, and take it in stride, it could have been something altogether different!

Love, learn and laugh

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.
    Did I say I love dress shirts? Have I been making that clear? The sculptural shapes reminding me of Greek or Roman statues, so stylish, so sleek, so sexy, have me flicking my head from side to side giving meaning to the term “self whiplash”. Yeah, I may be a bit eclectic, ok maybe a lot, but I’m sure I’m not the only who appreciates good style on a man. Aesthetics aside, there’s the symbolism, the ideology, the metaphors………..who am trying to kid? I love dress shirts, I love the way they look and fit, and feel, they are sexy, all day, all night, and when I go out, I always prefer a button up shirt on the men with me. Just saying……. That’s what sexy this week, the male chest in a well fitted dress shirt.

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.

With our history lesson over and so many choices to make, one thing is clear, whichever you choose to wear, they are sexy! Stockings, and stay-ups associated with (or without) the use of garters, lace, high fashion, appliqué are simply alluring. The visual tease of the thigh, a hint of nothing else underneath said to be more sexually appealing than pantyhose. Alluring to say the least.sexy_this_week_Luscious_legwear_2

Pantyhose without the use of a garter, wear smooth and taut over a nice juicy ass! Lines and designs that follow the leg downward to painted toes, new styles that are toeless for the fashionably addicted that come in stockings, pantyhose, and socks. Textures worth the gaze and caress and colours to match every outfit, mood, or occasion. Styles of every kind; seam up the back, cuban heel, fishnet, full fashioned, seamless, opaque, or transparent just to name a few. More can be read here at Wikipedia.

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.

Happiness, That’s What’s Sexy This Week

velvet-steele-in-bed

In my youth, my Mom would take the whole family downtown to the CNE each and every summer. The Canadian National Exhibition had all kind of fair ground paraphernalia from stuffed toys, to plastic jewelry, and trinkets of all kind. My favourite piece of memorabilia I got each year, was a yellow plastic smily face medallion. That two inch diameter face with the black line smile, and black dots for eyes was happiness to me, and happiness is what’s sexy this week.sexy-this-week-happiness-cne-early-days

Growing up for me wasn’t always the proverbial bed of roses, yes I had a great childhood considered privileged by many outsiders, however I never saw it that way.  Fights, schoolyard bullying, teasing, fending for myself, and so much uncertainty and soul searching. I couldn’t wait for the yearly journey to the CNE, to that summertime fantasyland and the opportunity to get my coveted yellow round plastic face with the black eyes and smile.

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.

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.
