Hourglass

Hourglass?

This is one of the images that we took for the letter H prompt earlier at the beginning of December. I was going for hourglass but when I saw it, it looked far less hourglass than it had looked, or indeed felt, at the time. I decided to go with the Hat and Heels picture but this one was left over so I thought it would be good to post it before moving on and into the new year.  I did mess around with effects as you can see from the featured image but none of them really seemed to create the effect that I had in my mind, so this one remains cropped a little, but unfiltered.

I have really enjoyed being part of Sinful Sunday and would like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing Molly for all that she does to support, encourage, inspire, and provide a place for us all to post our images. I have made no secret of the fact that being part of this project has helped me personally in ways that I could never really have predicted before I began. I have learnt a lot from Molly’s prompts, as well as from the comments that others have been kind enough to leave. Although some of my images I take myself, many are taken by HL and so we both share not only the experience of taking them together, but also the feedback that we get.

I had a wobble at the start of the year where the risk to me professionally meant that I pulled back from posting the sorts of pictures that we had been. While I still love to view the sorts of images which challenge some of the ideas that society has, I was no longer able to take the risk of pushing those boundaries on a personal level which I found frustrating. After a couple of months without taking part in the meme, I returned with a more subtle, less revealing range of pictures and the challenge of creating something which wouldn’t incriminate me on the level that it might have before, has actually been a good thing for HL and I in a creative sense.

My blog is essentially about my life as a submissive wife and aspects of living a D/s lifestyle and, while those always remain my most read posts, taking part in memes, such as Sinful Sunday, Wicked Wednesday and Masturbation Monday has also allowed me to branch out into the creation of images and the writing of fiction. Other memes such as Brigit’s Erotic Journal Challenge, Food for Thought, and Sex Bloggers for Mental Health, have also provided inspiration for writing on topics which I might not have otherwise, so I would really recommend them as a way to diversify a bit. It has also been good this past year to host my own meme, Tell Me About which covers topics related to Dominance and submission.

Looking back is always a good way to gain ideas and explore thoughts about where you want to go in the future. I have read many posts so far from others about exactly this, but have been so busy with my head firmly stuck in providing a Christmas experience for others, that there has been no real time for me. I now have a week to change that, and as part of the process, have begun with a little reflection of my own and have put together a little sequence of my Sinful Sunday posts of 2019. I hope that you enjoy it.

  1. It’s a great image and I love the contrasts and the symmetry. Really ticks all the boxes for me. I’m so glad to see you back posting. I really missed you from SinfulSunday this year. Looking forward to more.

    • Thank you missy. On all counts. I think I only missed a couple of months at the start of the year but it felt like longer. I know you understand how it feels though and really appreciated your support. I am looking forward to continuing, even if not in the direction I might have gone lol. I’d say there is time but I am 50 this year so not sure how revealing I can realistically be ?

  2. I love that corset so much and I definitely think you have an hourglass figure. Your photos are creative and just beautiful. Well done both. Looking forward to seeing what is to come xx

  3. We have had a lot fun taking these pictures in 2019. Your eye for clever editing to create a mood always makes me smile. Your body never needs alteration as far as I’m concerned. 🙂

  4. That corset is beautiful, you are beautiful. I wish you and HL all the best for 2020, and hope to sit down for a conversation next year. Love your slideshow at the end, such a great idea to showcase all images in one place 🙂

    • Thank you Marie. You are always so kind. Happy new year to you and Master T too and YES PLEASE to the sit down conversation next year. ❤️

  5. You have done so well with your photography this year, even despite the bumps this year. I really hope you continue to show more because you really do have a gorgeous figure.

  6. I love your feature image edit, and I think it very much looks like an hourglass. The white, grey, black color scheme is very classy, and I especially love that shadow! Taking a multitude of sexy images that don’t reveal identity is very hard. I’ve taken a lot less photos this year because of it, but I know I need to see it as a creative challenge rather than a creative block. Everyone’s memes push me to try things I otherwise might not, and I need to step up to that challenge as often as time permits.

    Thanks for the mention, missy.

    • Thank you. I agree with you about the memes too. I feel I have done less than I wanted the past few months as it seems to have been so busy so hoping for more in the new year. I need to get back to the erotic journal challenge. ?

      • For me…its just Sept to Dec…those are my worst months and I need to plan ahead to cope with that. But I’m looking forward to more involvement on the EJC, and I know that if I want others to support me, I must support them. Thankfully, all of the memes that exist are so wonderful. It’s hard to choose sometimes.

  7. I love your slideshow. So many brilliant images to enjoy and hot damn that corset looks friggin amazing on you.

    As for your words about Sinful Sunday. I am honoured and delighted that it has been such a wonderful experience for you both and I look forward to seeing what other images it inspires you to take in the future

  8. I love corsets and this is such a beautiful picture of you wearing one! And there is definitely an hourglass shape! I have had many corsets throughout the years and it is the ones that are most expensive, are made with steel and are very sturdy that make the shape most prominent. And then you go to have some meat to be shaped too. I don’t think any of us will ever reach the Dita Von Teese shape *cries*
    I love that slideshow, it is a great representation of your creativity. Limitations and boundaries for creativity can sometimes be a great motivation to be creative differently. And you have done an amazing job at that!

    • The ones I have are boned and I think they are steel. It’s hard to make the over bust ones fit tho as I don’t think I’m in proportion ?

  9. stunning – the contrast between the stark background and the corset is amazing but your figure is feminine and sexy and you got it all going on! xx
