Flash Back Friday: Farrah Fawcett and The Return Of The One Piece



Farrah Fawcett knows all about being a bombshell. Rocking a bikini is one thing but owning your inner beach babe in a one piece is a whole other level of confidence and grace. Emmy's tip: pull your hair up into a high ponytail or throw on some aviators.

Blogger Crush Wednesday: Gal Meets Glam





Who: Julia Engel is the blogger brain and beauty behind Gal Meets Glam.

One of  my biggest inspirations when I started fashion blogging was that I wanted Julia Engel's life. Her hair, her clothes, her job, her house, her relationship with her husband... and all of this fresh out of college! I have one year until I graduate (no pressure). What girl doesn't want to mix fashion and beauty with their career!? I aspire to have quality content like her blog.. the photographs are always pristine and her style is the perfect mix of feminine and cute. Think eye-catching, simple yet glamorous, and definitely girly! She has the same style as me so I would totally steal all of her outfits! 

Get her style: 




Who are your blogger crushes? It's WCW so Boys and Bombshells loves to support other bloggers on this day especially! 

Stay motivated, hungry, and inspired.

Get The Look: Jessica Alba's White Blazer




Theory White Blazer  ($415) Fully lined and loose fitting- the long hem is flattering. Make sure your aren't swimming in the fabric- especially for petite and shorter girls. The longer hem will work towards your benefit if the blazer is tailored at the waist. 

Madame PM ($3,500) A lady never skimps out on a handbag. Jessica Alba carries some seriously feminine purses-look for soft colors and hints of French flare. 

Alexander Wang Tank ($75) A worn-in white tank top paired with a blazer is tres chic. Wear with eggplant pants like Jessica or a dark denim wash and leather. 

Topshop Jacquard Shell (On sale for $44 at Nordstroms pre-fall sale!) This mint green color looks flawless with white. 

Larsson & Jennings Gold Watch ($364) Your time is precious and so are your accessories. Jessica wears a sophisticated gold watch to her night-out look. 

Alice and Olivia Eggplant Pants ($264) Lightweight fabric with these bold color pants- great for the office or professional settings and way more fun than boring black. 

Genetic Los Angeles Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($191) These jeans are a perfect fit and wash for adding a blazer. Also roll up 1/4 inch at the ankle like Jessica did here.

Sophia Webster Riko Pumps ($695) These shoes are a major lust-have. A woman should have two things: Good hair and good shoes. Waah-laa. Another option from Joie

Melissa Jean Jason Wu Flats ($105) Playful red ballet flats with the current cut-out obsession. 


Keep it classy like J.Alba ladies! Next stop: the hairdresser to get her beautifully colored locks!

Wine Tasting + Dressing Like a French Woman


I had the pleasure of wine tasting here in France. I have been so busy with class and traveling I haven't had time to blog! So sorry! 


The essentials: 

White linen pants  and light colors for the summer. Think natural, pure, effortless. These white pleated shorts  will keep you cool on hot summer afternoons. 

Neutral colored tanks. I love nude and white. It's so chic. White Crop top.

Leather sandals are classic and look beautiful with white. Joie A La Plage Sandals have support and style. I also love these Yosi Samra Cambelle Flat Sandals for night time. 




Madame (my teacher) she has amazing style! 





I fit in so much more here than in the U.S. It is a whole other world so I am proud I sort of adjusted rather quickly. I really would like to move here when I graduate in a year and shoot my blog here. Life is short why not?! So I will have to work my little buns off to support myself through my blog so that I can do it!

Bonjour! From France! My first 2 Days



Hi Boys and Bombshells! I am finally in France. It was a very chaotic trip down here- I still haven't gotten my luggage so my outfits suck right now! The airline "lost" my bag and it has all of my clothes, shower stuff, swimsuits, shoes, etc! Ughhh but I have fallen in love with Southern France. There are so many places to shoot outfits for my blog but I haven't gotten my luggage yet so here are some photos I took! 


This morning I went on a walk throughout the city. Here are la fleurs (flowers) a le march (the market). My favorite flowers are...


Peonies! Of course. 


I wish our cafes looked like this! I love the colors, textures, font...great inspiration for blog design ladies! 





I have to wear flats on the cobblestone. We are doing lots of walking and exploring. 




How incredible! These doors were larger than life.










Lavender fields...we got to walk through parts and had a breathtaking view of the French Alps. 


My favorite photo I took! Do you see how the water bends behind the canyons? I want to go kayaking through there! 

More pics updated daily! I am off to go explore more

Bright Summer Makeup


Hi dolls! I can NEVER have enough makeup. I just went to Sephora and did a makeup haul. I am going to review the products before I share them with you and leave for Europe. 

For now I thought I'd share my summer makeup look with you.


:: Products :: 
Dr. Jardt BB Cream  has SPF and smooths out your skin while masking blemishes. 
Bare Minerals Perfecting Face Brush  buffs your foundation onto the skin for a seamless look. Use circular motions and brush upwards- from the center of the face out. 
Beauty Blender is also great if you don't want to use a brush for foundation. I switch between the two.
La Roche Posay Sunscreen and primer  is anti aging and protects against the sun. Sunscreen is SO important so invest in one that works best for you every day and give your skin time to adjust. 
Bare Minerals Stroke of Light  brightens up your under eyes- its also great for touch ups throughout the day! 
Nars Sheer glow Foundation- OH MY GOD. You will love this foundation! I love how it makes my skin look like skin and isn't cakey! 
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil  comes in a universal shade that doesn't add color- it just perfects your skin and gives you a glow. It's hard to explain but your skin looks prettier after you apply it! 




:: Products :: 

Maybelline Gel eyeliner  lasts a long time and is cheap! I apply it on the water line as well.

Urban Decay Naked Palette  number 3 is my favorite of the three. The second palette is too cool and the first palette is OK but the colors are dark. This palette is great for summer and day looks. I also use the lightest shade as a highlight on my cheeks.

IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eyeshadow Palette has rich eyeshadow tones as well. I love eyeshadow palettes because girls love options! I don't use all of one palette- I will use certain colors in the crease, others in the inner corners, etc.

MAC Powder Blush in "Pinch Me" is a flattering and fun color. P.S If you return 6 empty MAC products you get a free tube of lipstick!

Anastasia Contour Kit is limited edition and comes with contour and highlight shades. Tarte Slenderizing Contour Brush  gives you control and precision when carving out your cheekbones. I love Tarte's brushes- I also have the airbrush foundation brush from them.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting  is just as beautiful as it sounds- sweep on top of your cheekbones or on your neck and down the center of your legs (Victorias Secret Model Makeup trick)!

I will post more makeup looks in the future. I just went NUTS at Sephora yesterday so I have lots of products to try and review :)

Hot Things That Men Do, Other than Be James Franco


James Franco is straight up sexy but there are other things guys do that is hot. Let's start with the basics: Don't be into yourself, don't wear a lot of cologne, don't check out other girls in front of us, don't be a brat, do hold doors, and give compliments when we least expect it. 

My lover is calling
