To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the making of bread.
James A. Baldwin
What do you think contributes to one’s sensuality?
Of course there are the overt examples of sensuality such as a low cut blouse, a high slit in a skirt, or a skintight sheath. But sensuality can also be imagined as a set of come hither eyes or a full set of pouty, red lips. There is just something about a look that can make it simply sensual.
I also feel particularly sensual when I have on a set of sky high heels, a great fitted dress, and bright red lipstick (my go to shades are Chanel Gabrielle or Revlon Certainly Red). While the outfit certainly adds to the allure, I also feel like it is the confidence and the sense of contentment I now possess. Even when I am wearing something fabulous and have on impeccable makeup, my husband said that I sometimes still shrink back and it makes me look awkward. I have been working on that and realize I feel really sensual when I am very content and present – present in my environment, feeling good in my skin, and living in the moment.
We may not all look like Jennifer Lawrence, but we can certainly feel as sensual as she looks!
Have a lovely week!
