REAL TALK + REAL BOUDOIR……… Let’s Be Honest. [NSFW] | The Boudoir Divas

Let’s be honest.  We’ve all experienced heartbreak on some level at some point in our lives.  It’s a deep searing pain, one that can take on emotional and physical symptoms.  And for many, it can be unbearable.  It can make you lose faith in love.  It can even close you off to it, if you’re not careful.

Sometimes, all it takes is the right type of puppy to help you learn how to feel again.  That’s why next season, ABC is switching things up… with a *new kind* of Bachelor.  One that promises to deliver.

I’ve already trained him to lead on several ladies at a time, now we’re just working on the egg farts.

Got a stellar shoot from The Boudoir Divas for you to mainline today.  Pumped for that.  But first; I’ve been gathering up tips and tricks and smart words in anticipation of this post.   {Continue reading…}

REAL BOUDOIR | Viceroy Hotel, Palm Springs. + The #1 Piece of Advice (+ 12 Others!) for Girls Considering Boudoir.

Are you sitting down?

Ok.  I’m going to trust that you’re sitting down– because why would you lie to me, right?  We go so far back.  No BUT SERIOUSLY, I wouldn’t want to start this blog post, and have you all still standing up or something.  It’s just that I’m worried I’d be liable for some of kind of mass-faint reaction.  And then all the firemen in the nation would be tied up investigating this completely baffling national faint I caused, and they wouldn’t be around to put out any actual fires.

Well actually… that’s wrong. {Continue reading…}

PARISIAN BOO!-DOIR + PERSONAL POST | An edgy, vintage, magical shoot that’s positively to DIE for. … Also, my thoughts on that Kardashian wedding vs. gay marriage.

Happy Halloween afternoon my little ghouls and goblins and sexified versions of normally very nonsexual, highly respected occupations on this, the only day of the year that encourages slutting it up a little and knocking on strangers doors at night asking for treats and tricks!  So safe.  It’s so safe!

So!  We have a killer (hehe) boudoir shoot submitted by the fabulous Nico Cervantes of NLC Productions to share with your eyes today, but first, I wanna know costumes.  Who’s my sexy crossing guard today?  Any sexy Target pharmacists out there?  Do I have any sexy occupational therapists in my midst?  Whatever you’re dressing up as tonight – if you’re even dressing up at all – it’s really a delight to see you guys again after such an *interesting* weekend!  What do I mean by interesting?  I mean we dressed up early for Halloween this weekend!  Seriously, the whole weekend we were dressed up as sexy bums from Antarctica!  Because we didn’t get the heat turned on until this afternoon.  I swear, I was *this close* to… being forced to wait longer and probably not really do anything drastic since I don’t like to get in people’s faces too much.  I only called the building owner 1000 times consecutively.  Nonstop.  :)

Ok stop, stop.  WAIT.  Hold up.  Listen, I didn’t wanna touch on this today.  But I’m gonna do it.  I’m gonna touch on this today.  I feel compelled.  And by *this* I mean {Continue reading…}

REAL BOUDOIR | One hot to trot bicoastal girl shows us the *right way* to rock boudoir. Also, I stand corrected.

Because I like to consider TKB an institution on par with such esteemed news reporting outlets as the Nightly News with Brian Williams, The New York Times and of course Fox News, I would, in kind, like to note an error in yesterday’s broadcast (translation: blog post; just broadcast sounds cooler):

Yesterday, I quoted Bentley as saying “tickle my b***hole” when listing all the wonderful things that Ashley could do for him on The Bachelorette, and we all had a laugh at his expense.  But, ladies and gentlemen, that statement was incorrect, and I apologize to Bentley for misquoting his words.  To make the mistake of putting “b***hole” in Bentley’s mouth when it was indeed something entirely different that came out of his mouth, well that’s almost inexcusable.  So, {Continue reading…}

First off – sigh, I know, “Kim Kardashian, Alison?  Really?”  I know, I know.  I get it.  Someone who’s career launched out of a sex video, and who keeps that career going by knowingly exploiting that very thing that made her famous but who complains publicly every time a magazine shows a little nip *is not* someone to be admired here on TKB.  Totes with you on that.  But here’s the thing: {Continue reading…}

REAL BOUDOIR | You can sex it up like Rihanna… or you can class it up like Ninya. But one thing’s for sure… today, a baggy sweater has NEVER. LOOKED. HOTTER.

So.  Rihanna’s got a new single.  It’s called “S&M.”  I feel like I should be shocked by this title but really, at this point when it comes to Rihanna, I’m sort of used to the blatant sexuality of her every move.  But the video.  The video shocks me a bit.  Not a video to be watched at work, which is why I’m not placing it in this post.  I just did you a solid.  :)

And I swear at one point she’s dressed as a condom.  {Continue reading…}
