I’m home.  Exhausted but it feels great to be back!

My darling Kim and I got to see even more of the US and it was beautiful.  We found Utah and Colorado particularly breathtaking.

SeleenaK_gasThe weather cooperated, and although there was some pretty ugly stuff around us, we had sunny skies every day except for two.
Here is a photo of me doing what I did quite often.  Yes, I tried my best to tone down my look while traveling, and as you can see, I’m not really good at it.  But it seemed like the prudent thing to do .. especially when I know I’ll be using the restrooms in states where I could, in fact, be breaking the law just by being in there with the women.

Anyway .. a little about my journey.

I’ve always been intrigued by Route 66 – “The Mother Road”.  For those of you who are not aware, US Route 66 has been around since the 1920’s and was the major route between Chicago and Los Angeles.  It was also know as “Main Street America” because the road went right through the middle of many American cities.  It was also featured in a television series back in the 60’s.

The road was also featured in a song written by Bobby Troup and performed by Nat King Cole, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode and others.

When the Interstate Highway system was built in the late 1950’s and 1960’s, the old road pretty much lost it’s relevance.  But it’s charm remains today for those who love the open road.

It’s no longer possible to travel Route 66 from Chicago to LA but pieces of it still remain, often right beside the interstate highway that made it obsolete.

SeleenaK_9978sI decided that a Rte 66 highway sign would be a great photo opportunity for yours truly so I went in search of one with a background reminiscent of the old road charm.  And I searched. Flagstaff, Winona and Kingman Arizona, Gallup New Mexico, Amarillo Texas, Oklahoma City, Joplin and St Louis Missouri for just the right photo … and found nothing.  So just as I was nearing the end of the old road, I decided it was now or never and took the photo you see here.

The area, although quite beautiful, doesn’t have the charm I was hoping to capture but it will have to do for now.  I’ll try to improve on this photo if I ever drive out west again.

It appears that Route 66 signs are a coveted item these days and theft of these particular signs is very common.  Many of the cities on the highway have now removed all of the signs like the one in my photo and instead are putting them up high with the traffic lights in an attempt to deter “collectors”. hehe!

So enough talk about travel.  That’s likely not why you’re here.

As I mentioned, the Viva Wildside event in Las Vegas was a lot of fun.  And I look forward to doing it again some day.  My only regret was that I had brought a ton of video gear all the way there and really never used it.  I was hoping to recruit someone to operate the camera and the help me with my next video production but it seemed that the guys were too busy chasing the girls and the girls just weren’t interested.  Understandable though, since partying, drinking and dancing were their main reasons for making the trip.

So I’m getting my rest now, I’ve done the laundry and am getting the patio at Casa Seleena ready for another summer.  I’ll miss having my next video ready for you on the first Friday of May but will work hard to get something shot soon.

Lots of requests for “leg show” videos coming in so I’ll likely do something like that next.

I’ll be posting an album or two in the coming weeks of photos, mostly taken by others, of some of our hijinks in Las Vegas but I’ll try to alternate them with the type of photos you’re accustomed to seeing here.

Ohhhh .. heels!  I recently bough a new part of heels from UK.  Extremely slender stiletto heels and very pointed toes.  I’ll tell you about them in my next blog entry and will feature them in an upcoming photo album or video.

Stay tuned!

Desert Vacation

SeleenaK_7886sAhhhh … the warmth of the desert sun! After many days on the road, I arrived on April 1st.  Sunny, warm, cloudless skies.

I just got settled in time for my Barbie to arrive from the Pacific northwest.  We had a great time and I look forward to getting together with her again.

So now it’s relaxation, a little southern AZ exploration and hopefully a side trip to SoCal to hang with old friends, maybe meet some new ones and check out the club scene there.

Oh .. and I look forward to doing more photos for this website and maybe even a video.

Does it get any better than this???

Road Trip

I’m on the road.  After a long and cold winter at home, I decided it was time to get away for a while.  And a road trip to the southwest US seemed just the thing to do.  Visit some friends along the way … find some new locations for photos .. make a few dollars at truck stops along the interstate! 🙂

So I’m off .. but will continue to update the Photo Gallery on my website as I always do.  Wish me luck!

Home From Vacation

Home again.  Time to get unpacked, do some laundry and reflect on a fabulous vacation.  And unload the camera!

Although I really should have taken more photos at the Fetish Ball, I’m a very discreet girl and just don’t feel comfortable posting pics without the express consent of everyone in the shot.  But regardless .. the excitement that I felt would most certainly have been lacking in the images.

So I’ll be answering your emails, both here and on the other sites, and starting to prepare more photo albums to appear here in the near future.

It’s also time to start thinking about shooting a new banner photo with a holiday theme to be used here on my site for the month of December.

As much as I wanted to attend the Exotica event in Detroit this weekend, it looks like I’ll have to miss this one 🙁 .  I still haven’t fully recovered from my vacation.  But if you go to it, please send me an email and tell me all about it!  And have a great time!

Another AZ Vacation

Having an amazing time in Arizona! The condo is great and the weather is fabulous.  I only saw a few clouds one morning and the temperature has reached 90 degrees every day.  The nights are quite comfortable .. latex weather actually .. dropping down into the low 60’s or high 50’s.

I was able to find the time to take a lot of photos for this website and spent some quality time with friends that included dinner at a fabulous restaurant.  Thank you Mark and Sara!

_MG_7168s_smallThe people in AZ are quite environmentally considerate and do their best to make new development appear in tune with the surrounding desert.  Yet for a high-end restaurant and mega-dollar residential development, they had no problem tunneling through a mountain to reach an pristine desert area only seen previously by hikers and mountain climbers.  Although the result was quite stunning, I had mixed feelings about just how far they went to please the “rich and famous”.  I know, “lighten up Seleena!”.

I looked at some real estate also … not the kind that requires a drive through a mountain to get to .. but rather a relatively simple condo in a very nice complex in the foothills overlooking the city.  Who knows?  I may just end up spending most of my time there.

But all good things must come to an end eventually, and it’s time to return home to Canada.  Hopefully the new corset that I ordered has arrived. My intention was to wear it in Las Vegas but the people at Nightshade kinda let me down.

To all who have sent email to me or looked for me online, I’ve been reading all my email while away and will respond when I get home.

Unpacking and the TSA

While unpacking for the AZ trip, I again noticed that the folks at the airport (TSA) have again went through my girlie stuff.  Everything rearranged and my precious photo of my bondage model friend was a bit crinkled.  Damn. I have to wonder what the TSA people think when they open a suitcase like mine.  sheesh.

On close inspection I notice that the tip on my favorite pumps (black patent, 6″ heels from “Tony Shoes”) didn’t survive the trip.  Does anybody repair shoes these days?
