Tattoo Gallery: Bows

Is there a greater meaning of a bow tattoo other than how cute it looks?

After doing some research, what it all comes down to is what the bow reflects of you. There are the universal-known bows like those in remembrance of survivors or the bow around the finger so as not to forget something important. But overall, a bow adds a feminine flair to any thing, really! From shoes to purses to cosmetic products, a bow somehow adds the delicacy of being a female.

 

My 30-Day Challenge

Hello Body Bartender friends!

As you know, our products are not just cute beauty fixations for pin-up lovers, they are solutions for stubborn problem areas that at the same time nourish your skin. Living a beautiful and healthy lifestyle is very important to me, as I am sure it is to you. I think it’s important to keep your mind sharp, your body moving and your sould at peace. But with constant errands and work and stress, sometimes we forget to take care of ourselves. With hectic schedules, constant events, and the demands of my attention to loads of details each week, I find I need to reboot my system every few months so that I can be the best, healthiest me possible.

Last month I began a 30-day health challenge as part of my ongoing efforts to set goals for myself. The first step in my 30-day challenge was to determine what one thing I needed to elimate from my life.  I decided that my body needed a break from drinking alcohol.  I certainly don’t think of myself as someone who has a drinking problem; however, as the founder of a body care line, my social calendar was filling up with events that I “needed” to attend as a presence for The Body Bartender. The hardest part of eliminating alcohol was the instant realization of how often alcohol was offered and how huge of a role it plays in our society’s social network! In addition to not drinking, I decided to work out EVERY DAY, except on Sundays when I would rest.

The results: I succeeded and even added two more days to my challenge. In that process not only did I shed a couple of pounds, but I also woke up every morning before my alarm, saved a couple hundered dollars (which I used towards my splurge on a new handbag as a reward to myself);  but, most importantly, my mind was sharp, my skin was clear and my body felt stronger.

Being beautiful is not just about having the perfect body or wearing makeup – it is about how you feel about yourself and what you can accomplish for yourself. I did the 30-day challenge for myself, not for anybody else and I am happy to share my accomplishments with you!

Is there something that you are willing to go without for 30 days?

Tattoo Gallery: Marilyn Monroe

She is already legendary by all accounts: the hair, the red lips, the curves but above all, the name. Countless films and documentaries have been created for this icon and it seems that every year, Time Magazine showcases “never-before-seen” images which we can’t get enough of. We tend to plaster our walls with her them, or use her looks for inspiration while others have engraved her into their bodies, including hottie Megan Fox.

Pin-Up Eye Candy: Kate Upton

Ever since landing the cover of Sports Illustrated, Kate Upton has received a lot of reviews – both negative and positive. While her bodacious assets have made her a coveted sex symbol, it is because of those same assets that have created an online buzz about what the media has labeled a “plus-size” figure. Regardless of media monikers, we love this blonde’s playful personality and amazing body. She has been the featured spokesperson for Beach Bunny Swimwear, whose swimsuits have become a staple in this summer’s beach outings. We love the sexy and playful collections they have and the material is so comfortable. With summer so close to being an afterthought, we wanted to feature the pin up in our most favorite Beach Bunny suits!

How To: Victory Rolls

Mary Beth Hughes

Did you know that during World War II, women wore victory rolls to honor victorious soldiers? We truly are romantics in every way. Today, this retro hairstyle is often replicated and revamped for fashion shows, the red carpet and your local Rockabilly gig.

All you need is a good set of bobby pins to recreate this classic look:

Polka-Dot Footwear

Is there a retirement age for polka-dot wear? Because I don’t know if we will ever get tired of them! Matched in any color scheme, polka dots are easy to dress up or to complement a casual outfit. Lately, we’ve been spotting (no pun intended) really cute polka-dot heels that we just had to share with you:
