The book is over 250 pages of great fashion and images from the past 10 years. Quite a variety from elegant casual wear, evening gowns, bridal and lingerie. A terrific collection of which many are not available on my web site.

Nine - The Movie

I loved the movie musical Nine when it came to the theaters in August 2009. But with the short run I was unable to see it again. It came out on DVD in May. I just watched it again and enjoyed it even more!

Film Synopsis - Nine is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he reached a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his Mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Stacy Ferguson) and his mother (Sophia Loren). The film is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago)

While the movie did not gather many good reviews it was fun and entertaining. The plot is very weak but that hardly matters when the stars are what one focuses on. The dance and musical numbers just seem to grow on a person. I loved them even more the second time around. See the official trailer.

The best musical number in the entire movie is Kate Hudson in Cinema Italiano. I could watch this over and over again.

Go rent the DVD and enjoy,

Tresor in Love - Touching a woman

I received an interesting question concerning my recent post and the attached video concerning "Tresor in Love" Fragrance.

Andrea - This is soooo sexy. Made me wonder about why he put his hand on her waist when there are so many places he could have touched her. Could you tell me what are the places a man could touch a woman and make her happy. I mean other than the "usual" (Bob).

I did some searching on the internet, asked a few girlfriends and adding a few of my own preferences. So here are 10 places where women want to be touched:

All guys like women with gorgeous locks. But what you need to know is that women love being touched on their head. It’s quite a stress reliever. Running your hands sensuously through her tresses is likely to send shivers down her spine. Massage her temples to the nape of her neck and she'll be game to your desires.

Nape of Her Neck
In ancient Japan, the back of a woman’s neck was considered extremely attractive by men as it was one of the few zones that were not covered by the elaborate kimono. Today, very few men focus on the nape of the neck, but we suggest you build up the pleasure by gentle touching and kissing your lady love from her hairline down to her shoulders. It will make her reach dizzying heights of pleasure.

A well-defined collarbone is what men find irresistible. So, why not touch and kiss her there. Unbutton her shirt just a little and stimulate her collarbone with your touch. Create circles with your tongue and give her love bites right there, just to remind her of how much you want her.

Small of Her Back
Most women love it when their guy places his protective hand against the small of her back as it shows that he feels very strongly about her. So, why not incorporate this gesture into your foreplay routine, by kissing or licking down her spine to end up with a kiss on the small of her back. It will definitely get her into the mood for more!

Behind Her Knees
This area is a power house of sensitive nerve endings. You can gently caress the back of her knee under her skirt while the two of you are in an open public space as it is sure to get her excited by the time you reach home.

Palms of her hands
We use our hands to please our partners, but have you ever thought that you could arouse a woman by stimulating the palm of her hand? Run your finger along her palm as that will make her feel relaxed and ready for a sexy rendezvous ahead.

Her Earlobes
This is one of the most erogenous moan centers of a woman’s body. Touching, kissing and even gently biting her earlobes will send her into a sexual tizzy. If you are getting extra adventurous, simply nibble around the outside of the rest of her ear as well, but don’t put your tongue inside her ear. That’s a major turn off!

Happy Feet
There’s nothing more sinfully seductive than a foot massage. It will help her relax, especially if her job requires her to be on them all day. Get yourself some aromatic massage oil or lotion. Pay extra attention to the pressure points such as her toes, ankles and the sides of her feet too. Some women love enjoy having their toes sucked, but others find it repulsive, so ask your babe what she would have you do before putting them in your mouth.

Soft Thighs
Touching a woman’s inner thighs without touching her private parts is the most sensual tease that is sure to get her all charged up. Employ your hands and mouth to caress and kiss the insides of her thighs but remember to pull back before going all the way.
