Blue Heat

...you know... it's a bit funny that blue is associated with cold and cooling, etc... considering the blue part of the flame is the hottest... this is where combustion occurs, where the energy is actually being released...

It was blazing hot in Sydney today! 31ºC (87.8ºF).  I love heat.  LOVE. I feel my best in hot weather.  I feel healthy.  I feel alive.  I thrum with excitement and possibilities!!  I don't wear blue in hot weather to 'cool down'.  I wear blue to SHAZAM sugah!



This dress is so cool!  So comfortable and easy to wear! 
...and this cat was so cool! I'm not a cat person per se. I like the idea of cats. You know? Catwoman, catsuits, Jaguars (the car and animal), catamarans, catnaps, catwalks... you cat-ch my drift right?  Anyywayyy.  Not a cat person but this cat... was cool.  A very cheeky intelligence, very playful and he loved me!  I was like.... catnip!

More pics after the jump!
********************************************
...I've actually got friends on the other side of the camera watching me in action!  Had a fabulous day!  Caught up with my some of my closest friends in the daytime, attended an 'industry' cocktail party then went to Late Night Lounge with my 2 soul brothers and another of our 'eclectic creatives'* group  friend!

[* writers, authors, journalists, directors, producers, astrologers, cabaret artists, actors, dancers....and that's just describing 4 of us!!]





Didn't have time to take blog pics of my night outfit so these will have to do... apologies for this dreadful OTT "let's be sexy" pose!!! (2nd pic)  I don't normally 'do sexy' for photos.  I'm more... hmmm... dramatic. 

I'm flanked by my 2 soul brothers in the first pic...we had a great time, as we always do!  No, that champagne bottle wasn't a reason why...but it did add its purpose!  I very rarely drink (although I did last night and will do so now and then because I do enjoy the taste of champagnes & sparkling wines.  And the occasional tequila. ), I don't need artifical high/s. ...SHAZAM sugah!!

Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!!

We have something in common. I too feel alive in hot weather. I despise cold weather. Like my name, I am Kiran- the ray of Sun- I need lot of sunshine.
Also I am not much of cat person either.
I like your blue dress and the accessories. But more than that, I lurvee your black dress and the sexy pose.
How is my weekend? Not so great. My dance partner is out of town. Sob sob.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

great sexy poses! :) i'm not much of a cat person either.

anyway, love all the color on this post. the blue dress is great no matter the weather. i, too, love the heat--or should i say--the sun, but a bit of cool weather feels nice too.

Nickie Frye said...

Aw! I need a kitty friend. My cat got eaten by a coyote. The whole family was devastated. It's useless to get another one. I'm not providing another dinner for the predators in our forest.

Anyway, LOVE the dress! That's a great color on you.

I'm like you, I feel my best in very hot weather and love the heat. Love this shade of blue! And love the turquoise eyeliner too. Though you wouldn't even have to pose you'd be sexy posing in a brown paper bag!!
