Tatiana’s Theme

.

Tatiana knew there was something interesting about Stu.

She was amazed how his horn always blew.

At Club Caliente, she sat in the first row.

Stu played sax nice and slow.

After his midnight set. Tatiana was feeling oh so mellow.

Burgundy halter dress and red hair like a wild mane down her back, Tatiana waited for Stu in his dressing room.

When Stu walked in, an intimate improvisation would begin.

Sitting in the edge of the mirrored vanity Tatiana smiled, “You sure know how to hit the right notes, Stu”.

“Using a trusty instrument it’s true”, Stu winked back and placed sax on its’ stand.

Tatiana folded legs, as burgundy dress revealed a slit that left skin on display.

“I’ll take you for a late-night bite as soon as I get my things together, Tatiana”, His response was quickened by the lovely lady in his midst, as he started changing from stage clothes to street threads.

Stu unbuttoned his white silk shirt.

Tatiana didn’t want food, but decided to flirt.

“Maybe a burgers, fries and shake aren’t on the menu tonight”, Sliding off that vanity, she wrapped arms around his neck.

“Oh, heck”, Stu replied with a kiss to her lips.

His hands in her hips moved with such ease.

Both of them were eager to please.

Tatiana’s burgundy dress was released with a few flips of his fingers and fell to the floor.

Stu held her with right arm, as his left hand made sure of the closure of that dressing room door, “No interruptions will make this oh so nice”.

“Nice and slow, just like your horn right now I’m gonna’ blow”, Tatiana stood braless and only in a lime green thong, slowly bent down to get closer to his instrument inside of black pants.

Unzipping his pants and releasing his flesh from within, Stu began to grin.

She gave him something good to start off their symphony of lust, as he knew to meet her moist meadow was a must.

Each of them had the taste of the other upon their lips. Stu inserted himself inside of Tatiana atop the vanity’s edge, exchanging whispers and kisses in a melodic pledge.

Motion of bodies made the mirror begin to shudder.

Tatiana breathlessly uttered, This is so divine”.

He gave her several kisses and concurred, “Baby, you are so right”.

Tatiana’s theme was one of being a tempting orchestrator for an adlibbed anthem of arousal.

Notes of flourish filled that dressing room, as an entanglement of ecstasy drifted in the air around them.

Pressed against one another, they lingered a little longer.

Strands of Tatiana’s red hair made contact with his chest like a few strokes into canvas.

As for Stu, his hands softly patted her bare ass and exhaled, “You are my most tempting tune”.

Tatiana laughed, “And, you know how to play me, Stu”.

Dressed and ready to leave Club Caliente in under fifteen minutes,  Stu took Tatiana by the hand and spoke to the club manager who was over by the bandstand.

His name was Jerry and he had a chuckle in his voice, “Stu, it is always nice to hear you blow. It really classes up the joint, my man”.

Stu shook his hand, “Thanks , Jerry. I’m glad I can count you as a fan”.

Both men ribbed each other as friends for over many a year, as each laughed so hard they almost came to tears.

Tatiana smiled, as  she watched Stu and Jerry joke.

She was still tingling all over from this musician’s pleasurable poke.

Diner down the avenue was about to close in under thirty minutes.

Jerry said his farewells, as Stu and Tatiana waved to him goodnight.

Making their way to a diner nearby to get a hearty bite, the crescent moon and a few visible stars seemed to be winking down at them in delight.

Beautiful duet of desire was shared by Stu and Tatiana on that memorable night.

A.H. Scott: The One

Poetry by A. H. Scott, Copyright 2019

THE ONE

.

What are you waiting for?

For that moment when everything will be just right?

For the moment you’ll be blessed with a kiss goodnight?

Or, when you walk into a room to have someone look at you with a gaze of perfect delight?

Pondering your worth in another person’s life?

What are you looking for?

What do you seek?

Is it something or someone that will tip your dreams to its’ peak?

Maybe all of it

Maybe none of it

When will that day come?

Thinking you can be the one

The one in the mirror that makes you smile

The one who finally sees you and wants you to stick around

The one who realizes strengths  within that will endure

The one that knows there’s more to this life for sure

The one obscured behind that internal jawboning of defeat

The one who compares to another in a race which we didn’t compete

The one who has settled in ways both large and small

Wanting to expand horizons, but afraid to shine

Affixed to that humble grind

Sitting back and watching seconds turn to years

And, stunted by fears

Staying in your own lane, you never complain

Hands of time can never unwind

Obsolete in stoking a fire within another

Inside of you there’s a yearning flicker of embracing something beautiful and new

Settling is safe, as is the shore

There’s so much more to life to adore

Maybe, it’s not another which you seek

It’s someone closer than you think

The one is you

Just look in the mirror

You will see it through

You will see it true

The one

You

Katie Kerl: Modern Mom

 

Text by Katie Kerl, Copyright 2019

Modern Mom

.

Life is complicated it takes real work to sustain a marriage, social life, and kids. At 35 I am not sure how some women literally do it all. I think life gives you what you can handle in your own time. I never felt the pressure to get married and have kids. I want that one day, but it took 33 years to come to that conclusion. As I got older I realized children keep you young. It is basically reliving your childhood as an adult and keeps you from becoming bitter. You learn greater patience than you ever thought you had. You also get the opportunity to mold a mind to be self-confident, kind, and resilient. That is actually a greater accomplishment; being good parents rather than just acquiring things with another person. Things do not take care of you when you are sick in the end of life. 

My friend Amy who I have known since nursery school seems to stand out as a go getter stay at home mom. Most people down women for selling beauty products at home, but Amy found the time to turn it into a real business winning a free tropical trip. She even had the fairy tale Cinderella inspired wedding that had a few interesting moments. Her Instagram: @rosegoldamy promotes easy time saving, organic, beauty, home, and child care products. Ones she actually uses in her daily life at home with her husband and two boys. The beauty short cut article I did has nothing on the information Amy puts out there.

I decided I wanted to know how she had the time to do it all, what life was like with two busy boys, and a husband with his own business.

1. How old were you when you met Dan?

I was 19. We met at a hotel party on New Year’s Eve (2003, going into 2004) that my friend and I threw. We actually didn’t hit it off when we first met. We didn’t like each other at all actually. He for some reason asked for my phone number any way, and I gave him the wrong one. He eventually got the right one, and things just seemed to just fit in place.

2.  Did Dan go to college, or did he just go right into self employment? 

Dan didn’t go to college, but seemed to learn a lot by going right into his own business… 

3. I remember your Disney Cinderella themed wedding. What is the fairy tale you hoped for?

We were engaged on Christmas in 2007. 
Then, we were married on November 11, 2011.
I wore a Cinderella inspired dress. Our wedding cake shimmered it had Hello Kitty/ Dear Daniel as the topper. The groom’s cake was super Mario themed. 


I only had about 3 break downs that day, so I was happy with myself. Let’s start at the beginning… I woke up with crest whitening strips on that I had put on the night before and forgot to take off. My whole mouth was insanely sensitive. I cried on the way to get my makeup done with my mom. We were arguing because I was running late. Fast forward into the afternoon Dan calls to let me know he took Damien to the creek to throw rocks. This may had started breakdown number two. Then, when we’re (bridesmaids, my mom, & I) leaving for the church about 40 minutes late mind you. We pulled up to the church and my mom remembers the programs were left at home. Since I was the last one in the limo bus I made the driver loop back home to get them for the ceremony.

The harpist was playing, all the guests are seated, and I’m in the front of the church trying not to pass out! My dad is calmly trying to get me down the aisle,  but I guess with the craziness of the day I  forgot to eat (and my mouth was still super sensitive from the crest strips) I felt super light headed and I needed the cold air to get my adrenaline going. After a few minutes (more like 20). I walked down the aisle and everything was perfect!

Since I was running so late we ran out of time to get lots of church pictures after the ceremony. The reception was a dream! Damien unbeknownst to anyone somehow hurt his shoulder and was fussy (in pain) the whole time. After our reception we took a mini honeymoon to Miami. As we are in a cab on the way to our hotel my parents call to let us know they took Damien to DuPont Hospital. His shoulder ended up being dislocated, and he was to remain in a sling until it was healed.

4. Now the two of you have two busy boys. How old were you when you had them and what age are they now?

 Damien is 11; I had him when I was 23 years old.
Paxton is 6; I had him when I was 28 years old.

5. How do you make being a stay at home mom work for you?

I help my dad with his work a few days a week, but I’m home mostly all the time.  I’m a complete homebody so I love it.

6.  What do you like to do for yourself besides being mother and a wife?

I love to go to the casino, shop, and sleep. Being a mom the sleep part is important.  

7.  What made you want to start your own home beauty business selling Posh products? 

I saw it as a challenge plus I loved the products. Some recent changes in the cooperation made me distance myself a bit. Once I earned the incentive trip; I knew that was what I wanted to achieve. It was time to move on.

8. Tieks seem to be your staple footwear. Stylish flats for moms on the go. How did you come across them?

Tieks are just fun. My mom introduced me to them.

9. What are your top three favorite best bang for your buck beauty boxes you subscribe to?


        1. Boxycharm is my one and only beauty box. I’ve had them all and this is the only one I will stand by. It’s definitely the best value for your money. 
        2. Monobox is not beauty products, but it is accessories and I love it! You get a monogrammed clothing item and 2 coordinating accessories monthly for $25
        3.  Can’t Clutch this is amazing! You get a unique adorable clutch every month. Pricing range $20-$40 depending on what you add on to your bag.

10. How do you have time to do it all through the day?

 I don’t, if I get one thing done I fell like something was accomplished. 

11. Tell me a few funny mom moments that even surprised you?

The whole Damien issue at the wedding; I never thought he could so easily dislocated his shoulder. My Parents are amazing, and made sure he was well taken care of while we were away.Then there was Paxton telling his teachers he’s moving to China, and changing his name to Optimus Prime.

12. What do you and Dan do to keep the spark alive with two little guys?

We still go on date night! Yes I am a mother; but I am also a wife. You should never stop dating your husband.

13. What were two major things that you both have overcome that brought you closer together?

Major medical issues with both boys. Both have needed medical procedures and both have IEP’s which means:

Kids that have developmental/ learning disabilities.

Paxton’s IEP is for speech/language/ and his bilateral hearing loss.

Damien’s IEP is for speech/language/ and comprehension.

We go to DuPont  for everything. They have been so helpful, and the doctors are wonderful! We never had an issue with our insurance so far; knock on wood lol. 
We have been super grateful to have such amazing resources basically in our backyard ! 
 

14. What are your favorite parts of being a modern mom?

Watching the boys become cool little dudes. Seeing them act like good hearted humans in situations is all I could want/ask for as a mother.I think the best part about asking these questions is I received honest answers. There was no sugar coating her responses. I have known Amy for a long time, and am glad I started with her perspective of being a modern stay at home mom.

The reality is no one will have the perfect romance, wedding, and children. We all still stumble through life riding out the good and bad times with the ones we love. Family to me is the most important thing we have. Growing through problems when you finally see the light at the end of the tunnel as a couple; just might be the perfect part.

To all my busy moms out there; do yourself a favor and follow Amy. She might just give you the home advice you are looking for.

Katie Kerl: Summer Beauty Short Cuts

Summer Beauty Short Cuts

.

In a fast paced world working six days a week does not leave me much time to do personal upkeep that requires appointments, except for my hair. I have had to find a few short cuts to get myself and the house summer ready.

First, I started with my hair in the winter. I was a deep merlot red that I actually box died myself. Yes, I committed that mortal sin. I was feeling like I needed a change, and wanted to be blonde again after about 5 years of dark hair.

I found one of Philly’s local top blonde colorists Charlie Cash on Instagram. I shot him a message after seeing his following and great transformations. We hit it off right away in conversation which was great. Let’s be honest here; no one wants to pay hundreds of dollars to a snooty bitch hair stylist and not get what you are asking for. I sent him a photo of what I was eventually hoping to achieve. He said no problem. I then made an appointment.

Upon arrival I could not have been more pleased. Sulimay’s Urban Salon is a family owned business. Rita, Charlie’s girlfriend is the owner. Everyone working there is the nicest! After three visits, I am exactly where I want to be with my hair, a very pretty strawberry blonde. There is no evidence I ever box died it. They offer more than reasonable pricing for being in the city. I have paid upwards of almost $500 with my hair length to not be satisfied in the past. They are located in Fishtown, and also have a coordinating barber shop. Check them out if you are looking for a major hair makeover this summer.

To keep my blonde from looking brassy, I found a highly rated purple shampoo and conditioner from Artnaturals. It is under $30 for the Duo and you can see results from the review photos before you buy. It leaves my hair debris free, and freshly blonde as walking out of the salon.  I also purchased their vitamin C hydrating facial toner. After a week of use; I left the house with no makeup on for the first time in years! It was $9 and the least expensive working toner I have purchased.

Onto teeth whitening, I drink a lot of coffee and tea. Needless to say they were in need of refreshing. I did not want to pay $800 to have my sensitive teeth professionally done just to have them ache for days after. I give people credit that can deal with that particular beauty pain. That is not one I can endure.

I did a bit or research on which UV light home whitening kit would be best for my sensitive teeth. I picked Cali White Vegan Teeth Whitening System with no peroxide. After two uses, I absolutely saw the difference in my teeth. There was zero sensitivity, I was worried with no peroxide there would be no change. I also did not want a drastic overnight change in my teeth in this instance. That way it would be less noticeable to other people, yet make me feel better at the same time. It is an affordable kit as well! I am all about finding the less expensive most effective answer to things. The whole kit cost $34 on Amazon. It came with two whitening gel syringes, mouth piece, UV light, and a 20% off refill gel coupon, which I will be using in another week to re-up. I am that satisfied with the results!

Next, I needed to get this Casper skin a little more golden before hitting the beach in my bikini. Again, not having time for a spray tan appointment; I ordered Skinerals Self Tanner Organic Sunless Bronzer. I also ordered the mitts for easy application. It went on evenly, had a nice brown sugar scent, did not get on my clothing overnight, and left me bronze not orange.  I applied it before bed after exfoliating, but gave my pores some time to close first to avoid dotting. I woke up the next day – showered, and was three shades darker. The tan lasted about 7 days; through sweat, beach, pool, and hot tub! 

Lastly, would it be summer without BBQing & cocktails? My housewarming present from my father, after deciding to stay in Northern Liberties permanently, was a new grill and tools. My boyfriend and I have been using it almost daily for dinner. Before Memorial Day I also snagged First Leaf Wine Club’s holiday promo offer; $21 for 6 bottles of award winning wines. Part of me was very skeptical about the quality. I felt pretty stupid after it arrived in three days, on time, and intact. First Leaf gives you the wine origin information, what it pairs best with, and the retail list price. We tried three so far and they have been fantastic! I will keep the subscription going for sure. You select the frequency in the delivery, mix of origin, white, red, or both. I highly suggest it for every wine lover.

I hope some of my summer beauty short cuts are helpful to make the most out of your time off in the sun.
