Saundra Edwards: Line of Sight

When choosing a title for a post, one can feel compelled towards a name without much thought. Such was the case when decided what a post about pin-up Saundra Edwards would be. However, as one will find out, the title is more apt then I initially knew. Edwards was born on 12th March 1938 in […]

My obsession with Dita Von Teese is badly kept secret. She is stunning, smart, scintillating and stylish. So it makes perfect sense that I covet 90% of what she wears, reads and thinks. Granted she looses me with fur and leopard print (See I am capable of disagreeing with my idol). Where she and I […]

I have recently discovered that here in Blighty, we do have a few sirens of our. Not as famous as Bettie Page or Betty Brosmer. They are not lacking in photogenic charms. To […]

Before Britney Spear’s tried to be a snake charmer at the MTV VMA awards in 2001. Before Salma Hayek’s more successful turn as […]
