Bring The Sizzle Inside

 

 

Boy, is it hot out there! And you’ve been spending all day baking in the sun. That’s why it’s time to take the date inside. That’s when the night gets even hotter. What better way to make your lover break a sweat than with the perfect lingerie. Since it is such a bright time only bright beautiful colors will do. Start with all the colors of the rainbow and let the summery hues inspire you. So crank that AC and make the season come alive indoors.

White

 

 

 

Divinely simple and always exquisite. A hue that brightens and softens all in one elegant entrance. Though white is often associated with the Winter season, with snow that sparkles like crystals, it is also a color that invokes the hue of summer.

   Yellow

 

 

 

 

The flowers are in bloom and the sun is pouring in warmth and light. Oh no, I’m not talking about outside. I’m talking about Yellow and how it brings that exact summer sensation right into the favorite room in the place.

Orange

 

 

 

 

Think of an adventure under a setting sun and the colors it produces. As the sun sets those yellows sometimes turn to orange. Those moments are the most romantic. That same romance can be worn as you radiate with the beauty of a Tuscan sunset.

Pink

 

 

 

 

Another color a sunset often has are bursts of pink streaking through. On occasion, it encompasses the entire sky. Those are the sunsets that are the most passionate. Who wouldn’t want to wear the color of passion for a night destined to be filled with plenty of it?

Purple

 

 

 

 

A regal yet relaxed statement may seem an odd combination at first, yes. But on a perfect summer night with a glass of wine and your handsome prince, this lovely statement is not only simple to achieve it is an absolute must for a most successful evening.

Blue

 

 

Another regal yet racy color is blue and with the various shades, the stunning possibilities are endless, timeless and without a season. Let it remind you of the water that cools our bodies and quenches our thirst. Make this the inspiration you take with you to every room in the place.

Green

 

 

 

 

Nature may come inside for a naturally sexy night with a brilliant shade of green. From emerald to moss, the perfect lingerie can bring that sense of spirit as you awaken your inner desires. Entice him further as the essence of the garden comes to life in the boudoir.

dec_border

 

Red

 

 

 

 

Make his heart race with the hottest color of all. A sizzling summer like no other is waiting for your lover. Turn the flames up a little more with a sheer material that leaves nothing to the imagination. Why keep him guessing when you’ve already made his blood boil?

dec_border

 

Black

 

 

 

 

Though, why change something classic? Are all those bright colors not much to your liking? Are you more of a midnight person with a dark an daring side? Black is your color, Black is intense and exciting, and black is always here to stay. Embrace your Dark Side.

dec_border

 

 

It’s almost too hot to stay inside! How could anyone stay cool, even in air conditioning, with all these perfect boudoir looks? So if you’re looking to make your summer never ending no matter where you are, there’s lingerie for that.

Happy July 4th!!

 

 

Independence Day is the day we celebrate stickin’ it to the King of England! Just like the other countries of the world that celebrate freedom, we wrap ourselves in our flag and blow things to smithereens. It’s also a day where the adventures seem endless. There is always somewhere to go and something to do on the 4th of July! So I guess the only question is, what do I wear? Here are some inspirational ideas that will make you one hell of a patriot.

When thinking of what to put together always think red white and blue. It’s your freedom to wear whatever colors you want, but it’s always fun to show your pride loudly and proudly. And plus you can’t go wrong with this color combination. Leave it to a woman, Betsy Ross, to make sure our colors were going to always be fashionable for generations!!

Face the Summer Looking Your Best!!

 

 

It’s time to think light and bright now that the sun is shining and the beach is calling you. The greatest thing about summertime is the kaleidoscope of colors hiding in your closet can now come out to play! So have some fun checking out all the latest trends in hair, makeup, and nails that are sure to make for a sizzling season.

dec_border

 

As always, let’s start from the top…

 

Hair!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hair is the most empowering way to express your summer self and bring out your brightness! With just the right style, color and accessories you will have the attention of the whole beach. Go for pastel colors, put in a stylish braided updo, and put some glitter along the part and hairline and you are ready to step out as the top hair trend of the season.

dec_border

 

Makeup!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Makeup is a woman’s war paint no matter what the season. She’s gotta slay when she steps out that door. Since the summer is all sun you have to think of how that hot look is going to protect you from the hot sun. Yes, I know, you’ve heard this from me once before. But it’s true, summer sun and skin damage go hand in hand if you don’t take the proper measures. So, of course, UV protection and waterproof is a must have every summer.

dec_border

 

Nails!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favorite way to express myself, especially in the summer, is through my nails. Because sometimes I just don’t have the time to put on that cute summer make up r take a long time getting the hair just right. I know I’m not the only one who feels that way. So, this summer, go bright, go bold and always have a blast from hands to toes. Stay with the current fashioned by going with nautically themed nails and make the ocean come to you wherever you go.

dec_border

 

 

Now that you know the way to a flawless face this summer…

 

 

 

 

Let that stunning shine through with the perfect combination of beautifying cosmetics that will make you hotter than any summer!!

Fairytale Boudoir | Los Gatos San Francisco Bay Area Photograpghy

Disney has embraced the look and feel of innocence for the younger demographic, as it should. When you are a child you look at a princess through your eyes. No one else’s eyes will do. But I must confess, and I know I am not alone in saying this, I am still a huge fan of all the Disney Princesses, Villains, movies, various characters, ect.. But I look at them through different eyes now; adult eyes. Yes, that makes me look at their outfits and mannerisms a bit different. I mean, come on, Pocahontas or Ariel of the Little Mermaid! And I am definitely not the only one who has envisioned what these beautiful princesses would wear for princes in the boudoir.

dec_border

 

 

These fantastic drawings of just that vision are represented here by an artist from Mexico named Biaani (https://biaani.deviantart.com/). Her concept is exactly what I always think when I watch a Disney movie. With these images, many young ladies give you their take on a sexy Disney Princess look, all while using Biaani’s work to inspire them. Let’s start from where it all began.

dec_border

Once Upon a Time…

Snow White goes down in history as the first Disney Princess ever! Her voice is lilting and innocent. She created the mold of the Disney Princess standard. So I can see why the artist used a more gothic tone. With evil lurking in every corner in any disguise who wouldn’t have a little touch of darkness show through. With a look like this, she will need to be the one to kiss life back into her Prince.

dec_border

 

 

Cinderella’s image is undeniable and virtually unchangeable. Everyone has even the same color blue in their mind when hearing the name Cinderella. The artist kept to the very classic feel of the legendary princess as well as the featured lingerie. It’s a timeless image loved by all. Prince Charming couldn’t help but be charmed by this.

dec_border

 

 

Aurora was a beauty like no other princess. She had a poise and grace and slept for 100 years without aging lol. In the movie, she wore two very distinct colors: pink and sky blue. Everyone has their favorite color she wore. Flora and Merryweather even fought over it. But here the artist and I have something in common, we both love her in the pink. I absolutely believe she would wear pink when she wants alone time with Prince Phillip.

dec_border

Ariel is the princess of the ocean and her personality and style flow so freely and can’t be contained. In fact, she was the first Disney Princess to show as much skin as she did which was a direct reflection of her uncontainable spirit. I think the artist captured that perfectly. Prince Eric would never again fall under Ursula’s or anyone else’s spell with such an exquisite lingerie choice.

dec_border

Belle is a character with as much beauty as brains and makes a beastly prince see the true meaning of goodness with feisty persistence. Such a princess exudes strength no matter what, and the artist pictures this incredibly. Though she had other outfits she wore, her most iconic was her gold ball gown. It captured her essence, and so too does the choice of lingerie pictured here.

dec_border

 

Jasmine is one of the sexiest princesses of all time. All of her outfits were so very seductive and exotic, being that she was from Persia. Her personality was as bold and exciting as her style and her undying loyalty makes her that much sexier. Above all, it seems the artist got into my head once again! I can only picture an out of this world belly dancing outfit. It’s the perfect look for all her qualities.

dec_border

Pocahontas is not only represented as a fearless native princess who fell deeply in love with John Smith in spite of his differences, she is also the first Disney Princess to be based on a true historical figure (though this story is much different in real life). She is the first Disney Princess of the Americas. I thank the artists especially for creating such an astonishing image that represents her natural spirit. You can almost see the colors of the wind blowing through her hair.

dec_border

Tiana is an inspiration! She is the first African American Disney Princess, she is the first to own her very own business, and was the second Dinsey Princess set in America ( In New Orleans no less!!) She is exciting, She is independent, she is vivacious, and everything about that screams sexy! The artist did a great job creating exactly that. And the young lady who chose the lingerie inspired by Tiana did a phenomenal job embracing the spirit of New Orleans.

dec_border

Rapunzel is a young woman trapped by an evil witch, but nothing will stop her from breaking free. With her trusty hair and her hunky savior, Flynn Rider, she escapes peril and lives as happily ever after as all the rest of them. I can imagine her looking exactly like the artist has depicted when her and Flynn got their own tower, with a touch of regal purple, soft lavenders, long flowing tresses as golden as the sun.

dec_border

Merida became an absolute favorite of mine among the Disney Princesses because she saved everyone with her bow and arrow, her witts, and absolutely no Prince Charming needed, ever. In fact, she is the first Disney Princess never to marry. I envision her being as provocative as she wants in her private intimacies with no cares about what anyone thinks. that is why the artist has inspired me. She so effortlessly depicts these traits in her art.

dec_border

The newest Disney Princess is Anna. She is quirky and daring. She is impetuous and stubborn. She is everything a young girl is. And she has a sister who is as cold as ice but loves her all the same. Anna is soft and kind and finds her charming Kristoff while saving the kingdom and her sister. Her portrait and choice of lingerie is a definite reflection of her adventurous restless spirit and cold surroundings.

dec_border

Last, but certainly not least, we have Queen Elsa. Yes, the only Disney Princess to become a Queen in her own right and the first to have magical powers. She is also seen as more of a villain in the beginning, which is a first for Disney. She is misunderstood, isolated and temperamental. She is also fiercely loyal and strong-willed and develops the ability to rule an entire kingdom. This artist is truly talented at being able to embrace these very awesome qualities in a stunning, and especially sexy way.

And they all lived happily ever after!

dec_border

These princesses have inspired so many girls and women alike and are held in their hearts forever. Even as we see them through a more provocative light then we are used to it does not sour them for us. It endears them to us and makes them grow with us. It helps us to choose what we would like to wear for our Prince Charming. I thank Biaani for sharing the same vision as many of us and inspiring many young ladies to choose these fantastic lingerie inspiration based on her art. It’s truly amazing.
