Love your body -- Allure by LH Taylor, Austin beauty and boudoir

Rock That Body

always like to ask my subjects what their favorite part of their body is. The answers are always so different. For some it’s their eyes or smile, for others their legs or arms, and still others, their back or feet. Years ago, I asked a dear friend who, much like myself shortly before, was feeling down about herself.

Sensuality - Allure by LH Taylor, Austin beauty and boudoir

Sensuality

hat is sensuality? Is it nudity? Attitude? Clothing? For me, it’s probably a combination of a lot of things that I can’t really put my finger on. It’s so subtle that it seeps into your soul.

Be the sexy you want to be - Allure by LH Taylor, beauty and boudoir

Be the Sexy You Want To Be

ave you ever seen someone in a movie or a magazine and thought, “Wow, she looks so sexy!” That tiny voice in the back of your mind that whispers, “I wish I felt as sexy as she looks.” At some point, doesn’t everyone want to see themselves that way? Maybe you have, or maybe you do. If you could wear any sexy garment that you’ve ever seen, what would it be?! Corsets and garters? A timeless slip? A sheer body […]
