Boys & Bombshells Mood Board

Hello bombshells! Sorry for the lack of posting. I have been super super busy working on switching Boys and Bombshells to a new home and having bad luck! I purchased a domain because I am serious about growing this blog into something more (it is my baby!) I am a perfectionist and I know I can do better so I have been in the process of moving to Wordpress or Square Space. I spoke with a few people who advised me to I think I will have to hire someone to help me figure out what I am doing wrong because I can't get the blog and domain to link up. AH technology. 

Anyways thanks for letting me vent to you and here is some of the creative process at work. I would like some more personality and to completely brand the blog. I have been having fun with the graphic design and exploring colors/fonts/textures. 

More to come soon!

What are your favorite looks/trends so far? I am loving the clean and modern feel. Also so relieved that floral is continuing to be prominent for spring. As Meryl Streep would put it "florals for spring...groundbreaking." Haha! But it is my favorite print to wear and always so pretty.

Time management is one of the most important tools for every person to master. I am a college student, pilates instructor, model, actress, and of course I run Boys and Bombshells blog. It's crazy! We all have things we don't want to do, which is where time management skills can help make them less of a burden.

Stepping Into Fall

AG Nolan Relaxed Slim Jeans fit so comfy and look amazing with booties for the fall. Black Lisle Tee has a silk/satin finish in the front but still is perfect for day-for bonus points black is an excellent canvas for a statement necklace. 

Tulpen Pointed Flats in brown leather elongate your legs. Why wear round toe shoes when pointed toe shoes are sexier? Also they are 20% off tonight only! 

I'm so excited to be the proud owner of the Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Palette. It is a limited edition palette and the colors are so beautiful! 

Goodnight Bombshells!

Better Days Ahead

So a week ago I found out the guy I was interested in had a girlfriend and had been playing me. It was a shock but within the first 10 minutes I was already over it and like "its not the end of the world." Which is my motto about everything. I blocked his number and blocked him on social media, I didn't want to tempt myself by hearing him beg or reason with me. I'm so glad I put space there because as the week progressed I was like "What the F^$& was I thinking?!" I didn't see anything attractive about him, I even was a little pissed I let my mind (and eyes) get cloudy. After talking to my girlfriends I realized that we all sort of romanticize and build people up in our heads. I also felt like I wasn't myself when I was talking to him which should be a huge sign. 

I don't think he really has any friends and as I got to know him I could see why. He was manipulative and needy and insecure. All things I don't want to be. I was happy before I met him and after I let him go I have been feeling more and more myself again. Besides, boys are just boys. 

So I just wanted to shootout my girl readers (and guys too)- if you're in an unhealthy relationship, get out! It's not worth it. Once you can see clearly you will realize you're better than them and better off. Life is way too short to be unhappy and with miserable people! 

Happy Labor Day! I'm off to go ride my bike.

First Day Of School!

 It's the first day of school! I am excited to be super super busy-it always motivates me to work harder! I have class downtown Chicago which is a pretty cool place to study. Do you have any idea how many times I come into class with shopping bags though?! I mean Topshop is literally a block away! AH.

Okay, okay well I love this simple look and tying a flannel around your waist is a super hip way to add patterns into your outfit.

My favorite flannel patterns are from Rails:

Shop the look:

Happy Monday studious bombshells!
