Quick snap

First week of #DryJanuary complete βœ”οΈ

Monday I start a 28 day kick start health plan, I’m looking forward to it as I’ve not been looking after myself for a long time. The trainer asked for a photo (before / after) should I send him this one do you think?

Goodbye 2020

It’s no hardship saying goodbye to this year! It feels like life has been stuck on hold for so much of it but looking back there were some very good things and some pretty good photos too 😏

In no particular order… some of my favourite photos that made me smile and grin as I looked through πŸ˜πŸ’‹

1 Feb Photo fest photos from 2020. Am I tempted to have a go this year? I do love a challenge…

2. Who doesn’t love stocking tops… I didn’t get to wear enough lovely lingerie this year

3. Bringing a little sunshine to spring, that feeling that the winter is ending and the summer is on its way…

4. Delicate lace and patience.

5. Saying hi, muse style 😏

6. Got into baking bread during lockdown one ☺️

7. Took a wander through the plum trees in the summer…and grew a whole load of veggies and plants ☺️

8. Also Stepped into some Beautiful sunlight this summer β˜€οΈ there were pockets of fun and rest

9. Long socks and cosy reading became a thing in late 2020. I managed to read 20 books in 2020 and am planning 21 in 2021 ☺️

10. Lived up to my promise to myself that I would indulge in non black lingerie this year and I’ve just ordered my first indulgent set of 2021 ☺️

11. Got a few sparkly presents from lovely friends 😏☺️πŸ₯‚

12. Bought a new chair for my office πŸ’‹

13. And a cheeky Christmas 13 as it was Christmas πŸŽ„πŸ’‹

I really hope you have happy memories to look back on in 2020 and wishing you all good things, health and happiness in 2021 πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

New chair πŸ–€πŸ’š

Like my new chair?

Took this last night. I’m looking at it the morning after, wishing I’d used less focus, had a glass of wine in my hand resting on the arm of the chair, that I’d captured all of me but my head to the side and hair covering my face. We’re never happy with ourselves are we? But I can’t be bothered to retake so I’m off to do some cooking and you can have this β˜ΊοΈπŸ’‹ happy #SinfulSunday

Don’t judge a book by it’s a cover…

I love the secrets that lie beneath the surface, digging deeper to really see the whole person.

Both these images, taken minutes apart, rather different, but representing the whole Muse today. πŸ’‹Waitrose with a twist ☺️

Trick or treat πŸŽƒ

“I laugh maniacally, then take a deep breath and touch my chest – expecting a heart to be thumping quickly, impatiently, but there’s nothing there, not even a beat.”
American Psycho (Bret Easton Ellis)

Who doesn’t love polka dots..

It’s been a whole year since I started this blog, when I was sat in a restaurant and it was suggested I officially participate in #SinfulSunday! So thank you to the people who have been so kind and let me join in x

Not all of us are comfortable in our bodies, regardless of size, shape and perceived flaws. This is a bit of a journey of acceptance for me and creating memories of this body while I still can. I’m really grateful for this little space that I can let down my hair and where I’ve been able to be more positive in myself and about my body. A huge part of that has been from the positive responses I’ve received on twitter and here so I want to say thank you x

This little set was sent to me as complete surprise this week (what a generous and thoughtful thing to do!) via the @TheKnickerFairy! I don’t usually do such flounciness but I πŸ–€ this so a big thank you to that lovely, delightful person too πŸ’‹

The Edit prompt

I asked the lovely Honey – Happycomelucky.com to play with my breasts 😏 for the #SinfulSunday edit prompt. (Popped my sending tit photos via DM πŸ’ ☺️)

Can’t lie, she’d edited it, returned it and I loved it, before I even sat down with a cup of tea to look at doing something with it myself.

So my edit was a half arsed affair and I love Honeys! But which would you choose?

Thank you gorgeous x

Seeing stars

One of those weeks where things align, I read a fabulous book called “The giver of stars” and bought these lovely knickers with sparkly gold stars, couldn’t possibly not include them in a #SinfulSunday could I?

Probably should have sucked my stomach in πŸ˜‚

Corsets

I was tagged in a post of a beautiful corset this morning and I’ve been thinking about it a lot today!

This is a corset I’ve never worn with anyone else, so thought I’d let it out here β˜ΊοΈπŸ’‹ for no other reason than it deserves to be seen…

I’m still debating if I should buy the one I was tagged in Playful promises what do you think? ☺️

Choices, choices, choices

How we present ourselves to the outside world can take on many different forms can’t it? Like highlighting the parts you want people to notice, and hiding the areas you’d prefer they didn’t. Not just physically but our lives and families. I’m finding it difficult to decipher who I am right now (I know many of us feel the same) but that brought me to these edits…they’re all me, just a different presentation…

So, Saturday musings aside, here’s the original and three different edits, silly names but hopefully you get the point. Edited in the bath after dropping my knickers in the toilet! What do you think they say or which would you choose?

The original Muse?

Sun-brushed holiday Muse?

Fun and sparkly Muse?

Artistic/faded Muse?

Throwback

Like many, recent months have had a massive effect on me. I feel like parts of me are cut off in a maze, where previously down certain routes, like some nice lingerie, lay my ability to tap into my sexuality or my ability to feel desire, now it feels like countless dead ends. It’s not just an emotional thing but a pretty big physical change as well and I feel frustrated and a little scared.

I thought I’d share an old shot, an outfit that made me feel hot, a reminder that it’s still there, might just need a while to find it again. Maybe I’ll go slip this on…

Black and white

Life feels a bit black and white right now, both because I don’t feel I’m living life to the fullest and because of what feels like a huge divide in responses to the pandemic. Being a fairly black and white person I follow the rules (mostly 😏) and struggle with those that don’t when it’s simply about basic protection for us all.

So I saw the bottom photo a while ago and thought I’d try to replicate, but I left it until 5pm on Saturday, sitting in my bathroom with bedlam going on around me.

Hopefully we can get back to living life in colour soon x

Sunday morning lazy

You know? Like your body reaches wakefulness before your mind, you stretch and slowly feel each limb come to life. Your mind moments behind what and how you’re feeling, then as your body and mind combine again, you brain registers Sunday, you smile and burrow back down to snuggle again β˜•οΈβ˜ΊοΈ

Greatest hits

Been chatting with a twitter friend who’s been making major life changes during lockdown and I remembered these that he made for me a few years ago. I loved them at the time and I love them even more now, so as I have no new #SinfulSunday I’m posting these as a thank you to a great friend and an amazing guy β˜ΊοΈπŸ’‹

Summer sun

I don’t get much time to sit outside, I’m Mostly in the office working but the sun was streaming in and even I noticed my skin seems to have a golden glow. Perhaps there are small benefits to working from home: not having to commute, wear make up etc*

I is for Isolation and Inspiration

This photo was taken pre-Christmas by the lovely Focussed and Filthy. I spotted the second photo on my Twitter T/L this past week and it triggered a surreal connection (this may not make sense). I’m reading a book where there are no more religions, no governments and no more illness or death. This in itself is a brain fuck in terms of where we are in today’s reality versus the dystopian future in the book. But in the book, there’s also nothing new in terms of art, music, theatre as everything that could be discovered has already been discovered.

So that made me wonder of these two photos which I think have fairly strong similarities (though I’m not comparing myself to the person in the original at all!) are we already basically recreating that which has already been created? Is there anything new? Any new inspiration?*

*Disclaimer, I get very engrossed in normal circumstances in books but with isolation and high temperature, I think my brain is playing tricks on me

Enjoying baking?

I’ve been lacking inspiration and not feeling very sexy since lockdown. I HAVE however been doing some baking and an inspirational baking photo landed on my timeline earlier this week…

Looking back #SinfulSunday

I have been feeling hard on myself. I’ve been unable to exercise for a few years and only got signed off by my consultant the Thursday before lock down. This was me a few years ago, looking back makes me feel sad but trying to find the motivation to get moving again is proving elusive.

BUT my arse is definitely better with padding πŸ˜πŸ’‹

Day by day twitter πŸ’‹

Wasn’t sure I’d get a #SinfulSunday post this week, I’m taking this at 22.22! Too little time and energy but I know that’s the case for so many.

Raising a glass (absolutely only for the food and drink prompt, honest Twitter 😏) to all you beautiful people in my phone who keep me smiling and laughing, focussing on the joy and the small things that matter. Thank you πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

Socks!

I have a thing for socks…normal socks I enjoy wearing unmatched day to day, but long socks have to be matched (I didn’t say there was logic to this!). With all this working from home time I’ve been having fun with choosing socks I wouldn’t normally wear day to day ☺️

These were my socks for today πŸ’‹ the knickers I shared earlier 😏☺️

#FebPhotoFest Day 29: Thank fuck for that

That felt long, I know it’s not exactly a marathon but I’ve been struggling with work and health and emotionally the past few weeks. I lost the will to photo and this was just another thing I felt pressured to do everyday. Not to say I didn’t enjoy it as I did.

But Thank fuck that’s over. And breathe…πŸ₯‚
