Vogue Italia, March 2016

April 3rd, 2016|Categories: Fashion Editorials, Fashion Models, Fashion Photographers

The March issue of Vogue Italia is a triumph! Starting right off the bat with a stunning cover shot by Steven Meisel of Rianne von Rompaey. This cover is a perfect example of why I have pledged my eternal undying love to Vogue Italia as my favourite Vogue publication and Meisel as my favourite cover artist. They are my most beloved marriage (after Bey & Jay of course) and I hope the separation they were going through is over, because this is what my heart desires – ethereal beauty!

And that’s just the beginning my loves, because inside, oh inside! The cover story is a unique selection of ingénue portraits, just what Meisel does best! Photographers featured in this issue are among the most talented of our time and each of their editorials seem to celebrate their own unique style and remind us just why we love them. I’m going to specifically show you a few stories, but there are also spreads by Craig McDean, Mario Sorrenti, Michel Comte, Miles Aldridge, and Sarah Moon, as well as a third by Paolo Roversi and a second by Ellen von Unwerth & Sølve Sundsbø. Truly we are blessed! Now go buy the issue because there is no sweeter feeling than stroking the glossy pages of a truly magnificent fashion magazine!

Apparently I only return to my loves to let y’all know how I’m doing/share smut. TODAY IS SMUT DAY!

David Bellemere photographed the charming Lily Aldridge for the cover story of Lui’s March issue. It’s a beautiful editorial: just legs and an Angelina Jolie’esque profile. But the 80s inspired Chucks & lace panties story by Bellemere with Lorelle Rayner owns my heart! It’s such summer perfection, such perfect teasing raunch. And Lorelle is a curly haired brunette vixen!

The issue also features a lovely naughty hotel shoot with Fabienne by Olivier Zahm. My favourite favourite story from the issue is shot by Cédric Buchet and features Nadja Bender and Clement Chabernaud causing disco trouble and ensnaring men in their sex web with just long hair and long legs and stockings! Which is exactly how I ensnare men in my sex web.

Also – hi everyone! I’m doing great! I’m living in Seattle with my cat, wearing great outfits and humping great people. I sell beautiful vintage clothing at Red Light Vintage. Go shop! Or better yet! Contact me (lesbohemea@gmail.com) and we’ll shop together!

Red Light Vintage Bo!

February 13th, 2016|Categories: Bo

Hello my loves. I’ve been neglecting my sweet site for a few weeks while navigating a move and a job hunt. I’m settled and employed now though, so hopefully I’ll be back to my beauty-flail shenanigans soon.

The job I scored is for a Seattle vintage and costume store called Red Light Vintage. It’s an amazing store and all local readers should visit it and fall in love if you haven’t already! It’s located at 4650 University Way NE and open Monday-Saturday 11-8 and Sundays 11-7.

I will be running the Etsy and the social media for the store. That means Red Light is going to get the sweet sweet Bo treatment! We have a BONKERS amount of beautiful vintage clothing in store and online. Everyone everywhere can enjoy its outstanding beauty. Everything is in gorgeous condition and priced so low that I feel like I’m having a high-end vintage shopping experience and paying Goodwill prices. Yummy!

Here are some important places to vist for your full Red Light experience:

Red Light Vintage – The site is about to get a lovely overhaul and will feature all the social media input in one gorgeous space. I’ll keep everyone posted as that develops.

Red Light Vintage Instagram – The charming and clever staff of Red Light post photos of new arrivals in the store, as well as pictures of them modelling their more unique items. They’re all a bunch of darlings. I will also be sharing images of our Etsy listings.

Red Light Vintage Etsy Shop – There are so many beautiful items to shop at the online store. Take some time and peruse it. Then buy things. Treat yourself!

On its way:
A revamped Facebook page with an option to buy exclusive items not featured in-store!
An option to model for Red Light Vintage!
A contest to design the logo for Red Light Vintage stickers!
A clearance section on the Etsy shop with select items 50% off!
VINTAGE WEDDING GOWNS YOU GUYS!
You bet your sweet ass there’s gonna be a Red Light Vintage Tumblr coming soon!

On a personal note – this is a freaking dream job! It combines all my favourite things: fashion (I bought a dress the day of my first interview. For 15 dollars!), vintage thrift (sometimes I go thrift shopping just to clear my head, it’s the perfect blend of retail therapy and nostalgia bruise poking), costumes (the store turns into a freaking Halloween Headquarters in October! *moves in*), social media (*Tumblr noises*, *Facebook sounds*, *Instagram humps*), and promotion (ALL THE CAPS LOCKS ABOUT ALL THE HAPPY THINGS!). I am tremendously happy to be a part of this team. Also look at how cute I look when I go to work!

Thank you again to everyone who still peeks at the site and keeps in touch. I’m so glad LesBeehive is still thriving despite its hiatus. Now go! Immerse yourself in vintage gorgeousness! Follow the Instagram! Like the Facebook! Buy things on the Etsy Shop! You work hard, you deserve it!

Yoga With Bo, January 9th 2016

January 9th, 2016|Categories: Bo, Health, Writing

I find that I stick to projects best when I share them with others. Rachel is my Project Partner in many things. It’s an important aspect of our friendship, especially since it’s long distance. We’re there for each other in all ways, but sharing projects makes me feel even closer to her.

Our projects mainly revolve around yoga, cooking, and photography. This month we’re doing Yoga With Adriene’s Yoga Camp. It’s amazing! Each daily practice is accompanied by a mantra, which I really respond to. I like words mixed with action.

I haven’t been great about doing this project every day. This past week has been an intense week personally and physically so I’ve been grabbing yoga in small bursts here and there, but not taking a stretch of time for myself every day. I’ve done 4 of the 8 days though, so not bad!

I thought a good way to encourage me to keep it up is to share the video each day (on days I actually participate) and, if I’m inspired, also share my thoughts on the mantra. Join me if you feel inspired!

Today’s class was restorative after a week of challenging goodness. It was perfect for me because a) today is my gin-through-a-straw day (which is what I call the first day of my period), 2) my body aches, and d) my attention span is terrible lately. I have probably a dozen projects all going at once and I flit from one to the other like a faerie with melancholia. So just the actual practice felt scrumptious!
Today’s mantra is: “I choose…”

I finished the sentence with “to take care of myself.”

I choose this path my life is on. It didn’t happen TO me. I’m not a spectator in my life, I AM my life. I AM my choices. So here’s where I’m at based on my choices. I chose this path. I choose to take care of myself. Not just as a solo person without a partner for the first time in 20 years, but also as a human with a body and a mind and choice to do what feels right for myself. So that’s what I choose today. To take care of myself. I take control of me.
