Out and About
Hello and welcome to Out and About. So you want to be "In the know" about me and what it's like being a woman in today's modern world? Well follow along my loyal readers and get to know the girl behind the satin and lace. Like so many of you I started out in your heels, but decided to become something so much better and so much more. It's been a long and difficult journey but one that has been deeply fulfilling.
I'm a part time model and performer who has been involved in the Dallas Alternative lifestyle community since 1998. I still perform in several Dallas clubs and still model on a occasion. I have worked with many wonderful photographers such as Sam Lea, and Mike Riley. I have done photo shoots from hardcore BDSM and fetish fashion to sweet and sexy lingerie. Some of the very wonderful women I call friends or that I have worked with include Victoria West, Onyx, Krystall Summers, Maya Douglas, and Edna Jean Robinson. I never did get to loan Maya my chrome corset but I'll get over it someday. I am also the daughter of the delightful and very talented Aspen Taylor.
I'm originally from the west coast so I have just about seen it all. I have traveled to 25 different countries and nearly every state in the U.S. I have lived in places as small as Andover and as big as Manhattan. I lived on 10th if you really want to know. I am Currently working as a Network Administrator for small to midsize companies. I have also gone to three different universities and really enjoy working in the field of technology.
Having worked as and entertainer and model has given me a very unique perspective when it comes to going out and being seen. It has helped me know what's in style and what's not, how to look your absolute best and how to know the difference. I guess you could call me a Cosmo girl but I really love ELLE too.
Each month I will bring you a delightful article on dating and relationships for the modern woman and man. I will be sprinkling them with tips on how to dress to impress and get out there in the real world and what to expect. Being a girl is an incredible amount of fun but it takes hard work and dedication to become a woman.
I would like to personally thank Jon, and Dan for giving me the opportunity to bring you a new feature each month and welcoming me into the URNA family.
I'm Learning To Fly
The Wright brothers were two of seven children born to Milton Wright of English and Dutch descent, and Susan Catherine Koerner of German-Swiss descent. Wilbur Wright was born near Millville, Indiana in 1867, and Orville in Dayton, Ohio in 1871. In elementary school, Orville was given to mischief and was once expelled for it. In 1878 their father, who traveled often as a bishop in the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, brought home a toy "helicopter" for his two younger sons. The device was based on an invention of French aeronautical pioneer Alphonse PĂ... [more]
Dude Looks Like A Lady
A few years ago I had gone to see my freind Paul preform at a comedy club. He's been on HBO, so I won't mention his last name to prevent any possible damage to his reputation. He's exceptionally funny and a genuinely nice man. I've gone to several of his shows over the years with many of my girlfriends. He was working in Arligton that night with a very funny British guy, who imediately figured out my "history", I never did ask him how, I was so freaked out by it at the time I actually couldn't think. Later as my friend Michelle and I were out on th... [more]
Fire your guns
Naval artillery in the age of sail encompasses the period of roughly 1571 through 1863 when large, sail-powered wooden naval warships dominated the high seas. These ships mounted a bewildering variety of different types and sizes of cannon's as their main armament. By modern standards, these cannon's were extremely inefficient, difficult to load, and comparitively short ranged. These characteristics, along with the handling and seamanship of the ships that mounted them, defined the environment in which the naval tactics in the age of sail developed. Firing a naval... [more]
She's Just The Flavor Of The Week
The first candy on a stick, according to the National Confectionary Association, was probably created by cavemen who maintained beehives and collected honey. Due to the nature of the sticky substance, recent discoveries have hinted that cavemen, who not wanting to waste the sweet residue, may have licked these random wood utensils and thus the first unintentional lollipop, or, candy on a stick, was born. It has also been reported and verified through several archeological discoveries that ancient Arabs, Chinese and Egyptians produced fruit and n... [more]
