Service Book of Days 10/26/09

26 10 2009

Outside my window… (weather, what do you hear, what do you see?)for the past few days at work we have inundated with ladybugs. Some believe that they are good luck. It reminded me of my favorite movie “under the tuscan sun”

my thoughts…From the movie one of the characters tells the story of when she was a little girl she would search for ladybugs and not find them. One day she fell asleep in the grass and woke up with ladybugs all over here. The point being stop searching and you will find what you desire.
Sometimes I can be so consumed with trying to find out how to be a slave that I miss the chance to just be a slave.

Today’s Quote…A joyful life is an individual creation that cannot be copied from a recipe.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990
I resolve to not look to how others live their lives to try and validate my life. I resolve to live my own life and create my own story.

i am thankful for…always my family, all my moments – good and bad. I know I keep saying this but these are the things that I am most thankful for…everything else is just gravy, as the saying goes.

From my service training…(any skills, training etc; notes you want to share this week) Also, I am going to start working again with my belly dancing DVD. Master loves sensual dance so this will be something worthwhile for me to learn. Exploring my sensual self. I am women and I love my sensual self.

From the kitchen…(menu for the week, what are you cooking?) I am looking forward to finding and cooking our new recipe for this week. Hmmm think I will try cooking fish.

i am wearing…Nothing….sitting here holding floppy my big fluffy doggie Master bought for me 🙂

i am creating…(crafts, sewing etc;) nothing new at the moment. But I am looking forward to trying my hand at making gifts this year.

my adventures this week…(where are you going this week?) Continued repairs on my house and packing my clothes to spend time with Master next week.

Becoming well read…(What are you reading this week?)…A science fiction podcast called the 7th Son and Master recommended Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management (Oxford World’s Classics)

i manifest and co-create…(what are your hopes, dreams, and prayers this week) Peace and tranquility in my house and with my children. I pray for the people around us to not take their life for granted. Incidentally, the phrase “peace and tranquility” is Master’s new signoff tagline.

Todays Melody..(what music are you listening to? even if it’s just the sound of a bird…)  No melodies today…just quiet.

Still….life (share a picture you’ve taken OR a picture you found online that speaks to you)

This is a picture of a corset that I bought at one BlackBEAT but more importantly my next tattoo of Master’s initials. 🙂

Looking for a Corset?

19 06 2009

I love corsets.  I love the way they take a females body and shape it into an hour glass figure accentuating her hips and making even small breasts look luscious.  Master forwarded to me this site that sells corsets at very reasonable prices.  Check it out.

I really like this one…blinks prettily at Master.





I Love a Nice Corset

28 08 2008

I happen to love a nice corset, and when I saw this one, I almost drooled.  It combines a few of my favorite things.  (Corsets, extreme stuff, and body modifications).

The Discipline Corset is the most restrictive corset that we offer on-line. Inspired by the many fictional stories written by extreme corset enthusiasts, this type of corset was used as a punishment for reluctant waist trainees, serious tightlacers, and as a sleeping corset. This corset can also be worn as a unique and beautiful dress.

Yummy.

Corsets

8 07 2008

If you have read this blog for a while, you may notice that I am a fan of corsets. I find all sorts of things as I browse the web. I ran across this article in the fiber2fashion website discussing the history and modern practice of cosettry.  Check it out and enjoy.

Corsetry has been around for hundreds of years, but it generally fell out of fashion in the Western world during the 1920s when corsets were replaced by girdles. Since that time, corsets have been used less as underwear and more as costumes, lingerie, and even outerwear.

Just as the purpose of corsetry has changed over the years, so too has the construction. They were originally made from thick material such as leather that had channels to hold “stays.” Stays were made from rigid material such as whalebone or steel. Today’s corsets are usually not as rigid and may be made from softer fabrics. Stays are typically made of plastic, although it is still possible to find some made from steel.

Let me know what you think about corsets in the comments
