More Corsets!

Maya Hansens F/W 2010/11 collection is more on the darker side, with leather and "steampunky" elements.

The Sweetest Corset On Earth

I loooove corsets! There is something amazing sexy about these cages. You may ask: what exactly do I enjoy about feeling uncomfortable? I mean high-heels, tight-lacing, boned corsets are nothing for chilling...
but through this inconvenience they make us feel our body. They shape our body into something devine, giving us a different posture. And when corsets are as fabulous, well-crafted and supersweet decorated like Maya Hansen's... well, then my heart simply melts! Mmmmhh sweet as candy!

The Sweetest Candy

Let me introduce: Candy! The sweetest seduction ever... from Lascivious.

Let Love Shine In

"Everyone in our beautiful and magical world is perfectly imperfect. Everyone looks and feels differently and hopes for different things in their lives. Taking this as the point of reference for the spirit of the House of Blueeyes is the idea that we are all beautiful regardless of our gender, age, colour, sexuality or social status. We are bringing love and freedom to the world.... through our art." [Johnnyblueeyes, Shepherd's Bush Feb 2008]
House of Blueeyes is collective of designers and stylists who create a world of freaky-sexy-flashy-fabulous fun and joy.

A little hommage to all those ladies with this fabulous colored hair. A friend of mine likes to call me Lucy, so here is Lucille Ball (1911-1989), the lady I remind her of...

She became famous in the comedy-serie "I Love Lucy", more here.

The Time To Love Is Short


To let go does not mean to stop caring,
it means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
it's the realization I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable,
but allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
it's to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for,
but to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
but to allow others to affect their destinies.
To let go is not to be protective,
it's to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody,
but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less and love more
Remember: The time to love is short.

Klaus Nomi Cake

Three Steps to make the Lemon Tart by Klaus Nomi:

Step 1. The crust. It needs a 9-inch pie pan to make the tart in. It needs 1 1/4 cups fine graham cracker crumbs, 1/3rd cup brown sugar, and 1/4 melted butter to make crust. Mix the ingredients together and shape the crust into the pie pan. (Klaus Nomi mentions that it may not seem like the crust will hold together, but if it packs it tightly enough and when it sits over night, it should hold).The artist also cautions about making the crust too sweet, you may not need to use as much brown sugar.

Step 2. The filling. it needs 4 eggs, 1 can sweetened condensed milk (Klaus used Borden’s condensed milk), and 1/2 cup lime juice. First it has to be separated the eggs; placing yolks in one bowl and whites in the other one. Klaus uses the egg shell to actually separate the whites from the yolk by putting the yolk on one side of the cracked shell and letting the whites drip in to a separate bowl. Take the bowl with the egg yolks and add the sweetened condensed milk and lime juice. Mix together. Then, in the bowl with the egg whites, it has to whip them until the whites are very, very stiff. Once the whites are stiff it dramatically increases in volume, it slowly folds the whites into the other bowl. Once mixed together, place the filling into the crust.

Step 3. It takes lime peel and cut it into thin strips. It place the lime peel on top of the pie. This has two purposes; a beautiful presentation but also the flavor. The zest really adds a punch to the taste and is meant to be eaten. Then it places the tart into the refrigerator for at least several hours, but overnight is recommended in order to firm the tart, make easier the cut and better consistency.

I found this delicious recipe here.

The Laughing Heart

The Laughing Heart

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

–Charles Bukowski
