Have you ever noticed how some people, some women, just seem to have the sensuality thing down pat? They’re not always the thinnest, richest or most beautiful, but when they walk into a room every man and woman turns to look. Her clothes are perfectly effortless. It never looks like she’s wearing make-up. Her skin glows bronze and rose because she has good circulation, and she probably has good circulation because she’s having tons of passionate super charged sex while wearing LaPerla lingerie she bought for herself because she’s a sensual person and that’s how sensual people roll.
What is the difference between this woman, and say, me, beside the obvious, which is that I buy my underwear at TJ Maxx? Could it be luck? Could it be feng shui?
For over 4,000 years the Chinese have subscribed to the philosophy of feng shui; a complex body of knowledge that reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for people inhabiting it. So I looked around the woman’s house for clues, and I discovered that her sensual lifestyle extends to every corner and crevice. Has she studied feng shui, or does it just come naturally, like a dewy complexion and the ability to match prints?
The answer is a combination of several things, not the least of which is mindfulness. This sensual creature is mindful of her surroundings— the visual aesthetic, how things smell, how they feel to the touch, and even how her life sounds. A little fountain burbling outside her bedroom window creates the softest, sweetest music. The room smells faintly of a soft Caribbean night. It’s feng shui, all right.
It stands to reason that this woman, who, in case you haven’t figured it out, is Simone, would be so adept at capturing the sensual, the romantic—the exquisite. It is how she lives, breathes, eats and sleeps.
(Note to self: pick up burbling fountain and Caribbean Nights candle.)
