Rebel xox Reply sassycoupleok February 10, 2018 at 10:25 pm We see you have avoided a thorny situation by placing a rose over a flower. 😉 Reply Jo February 10, 2018 at 11:11 pm This is delightfully multi-sensory; I can almost smell the roses and feel their velvety petals. Reply Violet February 11, 2018 at 12:44 am This is such a gorgeous image. I love the song lyrics too, so cheeky and indignant! Reply Molly February 11, 2018 at 1:39 am The deep red of the roses is quite striking against your skin and I feel like this is a really powerful image about how women are meant to smell like rose petals which is of course absolutely nonsense. Mollyx Reply Indigo February 11, 2018 at 9:20 am And I hope you link this to a Valentines post somewhere. I really appreciated Fire and Honey’s spank on the arse on the topic this week (which I have been guilty of moaning about – the topic, not the spanking – lol) and I can’t help but think this is a perfect follow up. Which means it joins my upcoming #SoSS post. Thanks E40!!! Reply Exposing40 February 11, 2018 at 9:29 am Ah, thanks for the lovely comment. There are three roses shot – one I tweeted yesterday, this one and yes, there is one for my Wednesday Valentine’s Day/Feb PhotoFest post! Xx Reply painaspleasure February 11, 2018 at 9:41 am Ha. what’s not to like here – the intensity of the colour on the roses and the contrast with your skin is wonderful Reply MPB February 11, 2018 at 11:00 am A wonderful image, I love the contrasts of colour from the flowers and your skin. I really love roses, but have never worn them in this way…… Reply eye February 11, 2018 at 11:04 am Beautiful, poised and sensual Reply books1799 February 11, 2018 at 12:53 pm An utterly brilliant idea and beautifully realised. It has given me so much pleasure to look at this image. xx Reply mmalflic February 11, 2018 at 3:25 pm Love the contrast of such stunning red against the flesh. Gorgeous! Reply authorcpmcclennan February 11, 2018 at 4:24 pm Definitely, time to make it rain. Beautiful shot. Reply lapsedcatholicwife February 11, 2018 at 4:54 pm This is just right, the colours, the lyrics and the cleverness Reply Atiya February 11, 2018 at 5:55 pm brilliantly creative! hope they are not real cause i am a bit worried about the thorns Reply Exposing40 February 11, 2018 at 7:40 pm They are!! Reply Modesty Ablaze (@ablazingmodesty) February 11, 2018 at 8:00 pm Wonderfully clever . . . particularly avoiding the thorns !!! Xxx – K Reply mariasibylla February 11, 2018 at 9:47 pm Absolutely perfect! Reply Elliott Henry (@ElliottHenry5) February 11, 2018 at 9:48 pm Roses are my favorite flowers, especially red ones, they are lovely with you. Reply sub-Bee February 15, 2018 at 8:00 pm I have been humming that song ever since you posted the other rose image on Twitter! What’s not to love about this, beautiful deep red, beautiful flowers and beautiful you.
