Lingerie and Lash

It's hard to get too excited by January - there's no Christmas/New Year's Eve to brighten the month, and Spring seems an eternity away.  However, there are always the post-Christmas sales to enjoy (assuming there is any money left over).  It doesn't take a lot to lure a girl like me into Agent Provocateur, and knowing that their sale was still on was enough to coax me out into the winter cold.  One thing I do love about Agent Provocateur is that they can be relied on to offer suspender belts with most of their bras and panties, and for a stocking-fan like myself that is of paramount importance - however, it is finding a decently-fitting bra that can cause the real problems.  For a girl like me (30G - ie. small around my back but with large breasts) it is often a case of hunting in vain for the right sized bra.  Add a diminishing availability in the sale stock and the whole process can turn into a bit of a marathon.  On this occasion it turned into a two and a half hour marathon - I must have tried every single style that they had, but at least I didn't come away empty-handed.  I have now two new lovely sets of lingerie - one from the sale, one bought at full-price.  The sale one I really love as (for me) it is the epitomy of Las Vegas sleaze - sexy and a bit slutty.  The other is, well, as the sales assistant exclaimed when she saw me in it, "Oh my God, super-boobies!"  It had to be mine.

Readers will remember that in December I attended Club Lash in Manchester, (admittedly for the first time in a few years), for it's final event at Legends.  With a quiet weekend ahead of me, I decided to visit the fetish club again at it's new home at Alter Ego in Manchester's gay village.  I managed to bump into some old friends who used to run the lamented Preston club Consent, and we invariably got talking about how the scene used to be in the 1990's.  Although a decent turn-out for Club Lash that night, it still wasn't anywhere near what is used to be in it's heyday - but the same statement can be levelled at nearly any fetish club with the exception of Torture Garden.  I do wonder where all the pervs, sexual deviants and polyamorous have gone... if anyone knows, please drop me a line!

Nevertheless, I had a great night, and I have to say that the DJ's at the club really got the mix of music right.  It was, however, ever so slightly chilly when it came to leaving Alter Ego at 2.00am.  Stepping out into sub-zero temperatures in latex after dancing all night was a bit of a shock to the system... but at least it wasn't snowing and I didn't have to wait for a taxi for an hour.

As it's Sunday, it's time for Picture Of The Week again.  Last week's rather voyeurisitc delight was taken on one of my visits to a hotel in Manchester.  For those who visited the website and saw the picture, it really was an exhibitionist's delight - first-floor (so not too high-up), full-length window, no net curtains or blinds.  As the traffic (including a few buses!) and pedestrians passed just below, I could see amazed faces staring up while I posed in the window wearing just my waist-cincher, fishnets, high heels... and nothing else. This week's is an altogether more private affair.  Have a look at my Gallery page, and, if you want a closer look at that new lingerie I've bought, do as the Picture title says...!

Happy Frou Year!

Well, 2012 has dragged itself away - some of it was very bad, of course, with the loss of someone very important to me, but at least it wasn't as bad as it could have been.  We'll call that one a draw, then.  Happily, the old year ended in a much better fashion than expected.  I had a brilliant Christmas Day, noted here previously, and on New Year's Eve decided to venture north to lovely Hebden Bridge to attend The Frou Frou Club.  It was the first time that the burlesque club had run an event on New Year's Eve, and was my first time of attending the Club itself.  In truth, New Year's Eve is generally a let-down - crowded and over-priced bars (paying to get into a 'pub'?  No thank you...), and my last truly memorable NYE was at the sadly-missed Jillys, so the chance to get dressed-up and be entertained by gorgeous girls removing items of clothing was one that I couldn't resist.

Dexi - at The Frou Frou Club
  The event is held in the town's lovely Little Theatre, and is a very different set-up than one I've seen before - the theatre lay-out means no-one is left standing (never much fun in high-heels) and everyone gets a decent view of the stage in order to enjoy the acts.  There are also plenty of intervals so that drinks could be topped-up - important, too, for a good evening out.

The Frou Frou Club is organised and hosted by the stunning and charming Lady Wildflower.  I have to say I had a fantastic night, and the acts were brilliant.  Havana Hurricane's bump n' grind routine was mesmerising, Heidi Bang Tidy's debut of her 'Loo-Roll Cover' girl brilliantly funny, and Scarlett Daggers was simply ravishing.  Light-hearted fun came from Jollyboat - a duo from nearby Todmorden whose piss-taking of Simon Cowell and the whole X-Factor/The Voice nonsense was hilarious and truthful.

The holiday season is truly left behind, but already there are more events coming up in the next few weeks to brighten the January gloom, which I'm looking forward to.  And, it's back to my normal routine too - so if you fancy lifting your January gloom by being entertained by a lovely lady removing items of clothing (unless you like the stockings and high-heels, of course), then give me a call!
