Masha cats x lingerie

Masha Cats x Lingerie

There is a universal language that all cat lovers speak, I think if you’ve been following this series you’ll have seen it by now. There is a bit of the individual in the way we describe our pets, but specifically those fiercely independent felines. Something about that feline energy also really captures the allure of what it is to be a woman. It can be both playful and chasing its tail one minute, serious and focused hunter the next, and then with the blink of an eye hungry and affectionate for cuddles.
I love how each woman’s answer to the same questions have added to the photos, and this shoot & interview with Masha does not disappoint. She has incredible posture and while doing hair and makeup we talked about how her cat walks with her, sometimes on a leash sometimes not, and how they even go to the beach together!
So without further ado, Masha x Cats x Lingerie:

love – Persephone Rising 

Calling all Goddesses

Spring is here

 

We’re completely head over heels at these stunning photos from Natalya Phillips & Francine Duffy so we’re sharing the full set in celebration of the first day of spring. There is something so magical about Francine’s use of natural lighting and Natalya’s free spirit personality (ps. check out her website to hear her magical voice too!).

I shared the story of Persephone on our instagram last week and for those of you that missed it:

This series reminds me of the story of Persephone who was kidnapped by Hades God of the underworld. It was said that her absence led her mother Demeter Goddess of the agriculture/harvest in her sadness to create winter’s blight. When Hades under pressure by Zeus & the rest of the Gods allowed Persephone to return he tricked her into eating a pomegranate, so having eaten a fruit of the underworld she would have to return for part of the year. Her presence and return to the earth led flowers to spring forth, and her return to Hades & the underworld caused winter when the flowers and crops fade. This story of her coming and going explained the change of seasons.

The story of Persephone is one of my favorite Greek myths, because like so many Greek tales it captures a deeper view of feminine power and mystique. It’s also empowering in that Persephone comes to represent both dark & light, she is both the Queen of the underworld and rules over the dead alongside Hades, but also has the power to bring life to earth with her return each spring her very presence brings forth flowers.

Also makes quite an apropos reference for this shoot featuring our Petal Play collection too!

cats x lingerie – Casey Leigh

Casey Leigh – Lingerie Tattoos Cats

Match Made in Heaven

You know that feeling where you pick up on someone’s energy, well cats are really really eerily good at that, and me and Casey discussed this super power as my kitties milled about waiting for this shoot. I think that magnetism came through in all the photos, like she couldn’t be happier to be in their company so they just couldn’t get enough of her. Sometimes its not even that cats sense that you’re a “cat person” or a “dog person” but more of an energy that you bring into the room. So as we chatted and got to know each other over hair and makeup I have a feeling the kitties were listening and became curious who this other furless person was getting to know their furless person (that’s how I think cat’s think about us, because to them furless is weird right?!)

After the shoot I fell in love all over again with how the black and white lingerie tattoos all blend together to let her smile and ink stand out. The addition of kitties is really just fuzzy icing on the cake. So without further ado I’m really excited to share these images of Casey:

have you always been a cat person? are you a cat & dog person?
I am definitely an ANIMAL person in general! I love cats and dogs. I plan on rescuing both cats & dogs in the near future and having a sweet fur-baby family!

favorite cat coloring? 
My favorite cat coloring/patterns have always been calico & “tuxedo”. I love the diversity a calico cat portrays with combined coloring, and each calico cat’s pattern is unique. The classiness of a tuxedo colored cat with their white gloves is irresistible!

most cats live a pretty leisurely lifestyle you could say, what part of kitty living do you wish you could have as a human?
If I could have the lifestyle of a cat, I would definitely say I would wish to be able to bask in the warm sunlight in front of a window all day.
