Leprechaun Lingerie Set: ($25 Panties, $40, Bra) No, not a gift for your favorite short redhead.. this is a spiritually named set. Leprachauns live and work in quiet, secluded places.

Nixie Garden GuardHers, Blasphemous Blumen, and Sidhe Sitting Stockings: ($55 and up) Sidhe forms are shadowy, and they can only fully materialize in the presence of a human.

    The deer head gave me a great laugh. (the ironic kind)

  3. JJackson says:

    this lingerie isn’t very sexy!

  4. Jess says:

    JJ: There is a difference between trashy sexy, and comfy day-to-day sexy. Tons of ppl find eco-cotton panties sexier than trashy thongs from Victoria’s Secret. To each his/her own!

    truly sensual work. Kudos to you Under the Root!

  7. Jennifer says:

    Many kind regards to GirlieGirl Army and the opportunity to push forward our mindset with regards to handmade lingerie, underthings, and sensuality.

    Thank you, Shube.

    I do hope our planet comes to realize the potential of our wasted fabrics, incinerated everyday, and the possibilities we can create with the body’s magnificence in every curve.

  8. Jennifer says:

    JJackson, I appreciate your comment and your perception.

    My sensual desire for 2010 includes:
    1) getting a sitter
    2) going out dancing all night with my honey
    3) necking in our tiny Beetle like teenagers after getting hot and sweaty on the dance floor
    4) me getting massaged and doated all night in fab eco-lingerie

    as someone who is newly single after having been with someone for the better part of 7 years (!), i would like to go out and meet some new people, enjoy all the coy flirting that goes with it, and have some light, unattached fun (in my new sexy lingerie!) while staying safe, of course.

  11. Ashley says:

    I am spending the next few months in Paris, so my sensual desire for 2010 would be un garcon francais. i am really into the charteuse lingerie; way too cute to be left under your clothes all day!

  12. semira says:

    What I desire the most this year is to give more love. To myself first by pampering and loving myself. I know that when I can do this I can love and pamper my darling sweethearts, including my sweet husband and my two darling baby boys. I also desire to send my roots deep into the ground where I live and anchor and grow!! By making my family beautiful and strong I wish this to overflow to the whole world.

  13. May says:

    Desire….to get over my fears that stops me from the guilt of enjoying things more with my partner due bad pas experiences, once I have managed I always wondered how would it turn out the experience of encountering each other and pretending not to know each other and have a random first date that we never had and what that might lead :).

  14. Tracie says:

    In 2010 I will celebrate 19 years of partnership with my husband. In the past, we got a little *too* focused on work kids and careers. Over the past few months we have been deepening our conversational intimacy and falling in love all over again… and that has heated things up in the bedroom. So, it’s time to toss out the frumpy sleepwear and put on something feminine and sexy (but thankfully, just as comfy!)

  15. We women are constantly busy. We have so much on our minds, so much we have to do, and there is often no one there to tell us that it is okay not to do it all in one day, or to do it all perfectly. We forget about our sensual sides. We forget who we really are. And even when we are all worn out, some of us are still unable to make self care a priority. We lose ourselves, which often means losing our connectedness with our partners.

    In 2010, my desire is to renew my connectedness with my partner, and to make the time to relax and explore each other sensually and spiritually without any nagging “background thoughts” of things on our lists that still need to get done, or bills we have to pay. Together we have vowed to revisit the beginning of our lives together. That time when we couldn’t get enough of each other, responsibilities be damned. We will turn off all the lights, play some music, light some candles, and focus on rediscovering our love for each other (before the end of the night when we are too exhausted for words).

    For me, all of that starts with making time to pamper myself, and knowing that I can improve other areas of my life by making sure that I feel relaxed and at my best. A long hot bath, a massage, soft and sexy lingerie…I feel better already.

  16. Jennifer M says:

    Oh my, these are truly amazing and blowing me away with butterflies in the belly.

    My sensual desire for 2010 is to learn to love my body, whether it becomes what I hope for or stays just the way it is. Through this, I want to unveil the openness and anticipation I had just last year at new, exciting… adventures. I want to walk around naked or in something sexy and feel beautiful and confident.

  19. Chloe says:

    No winners yet, Jessica! Stay tuned. The winner will be picked on VALENTINE’S DAY! :)

  20. Christine says:

    All the way out to my fingertips and toes, and up to the top of my head, I feel that 2010 is THE year where my desire will fully blossom…not the giddy, curious desire of youth nor the bold and brazen desires of a strong, single woman…but the desires of a woman who has finally felt – and received – true, generous, passionate and honest love.

    I am getting married to an incredible man this year — someone who is my perfect companion, friend, lover and confidant. My desires for 2010 are to love and pamper him unconditionally – the way he does for me, to deeper explore our sensuality together without shyness or embarassment, to allow our spiritual connection and physical attraction to bring us to new heights in our relationship and behind closed doors (!) — and of course, to make out like hot and horny teenagers at inappropriate times/places!
    My other desire is for everyone to be able to experience this — because, like my mother told me, we all deserve to be the center of someone’s universe!

  21. Karen says:

    My desire for 2010 involves kissing my lover slowly and then undressing her – unwrapping her beautiful body and then massaging her tenderly. More than one stolen moment when we can be alone and sensual not bombarded by our hectic lives of work, children and bills.
    We will have the entire night to ourselves. Dinner, dancing, cuddles and love making.

  22. Chloe says:

    CONGRATS TO MAY! Jennifer of Under The Root has chosen MAY’S ENTRY as our contest winner! :) Thanks for supporting GREEN goddesses, and for spreading the word on GirlieGirlArmy and Under The Root! :) Those who didn’t win: Stay tuned for many more contest opportunities!

  24. HardX says:

    First of all, be sure to examine the structure of the bikini in comparison to your body shape.

    We simply love HardX. Common people need some role models in their life to imitate.
    Hard X now, Previously engaged to NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick, who was killed in a 2004 Martinsville plane crash, Maynard knows a thing or
    two about keeping up with the sports world.

  25. No banker has the right to question any one about responsibility.
    Its time to hit the streets America we have a nation to rebuild.
    Many companies are able to operate with impunity because the company is owed by an American Indian tribe.
