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!

Lily Aldridge by David Bellemere for Lui, March 2016

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!

Yoga With Bo, January 9th 2016

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

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.

Les Beehive Revamp

January 8th, 2016|Categories: Bo|Tags: , , , |

Hello my loves! It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to truly dedicate time to the site. I’ve even considered letting it go. I just can’t though, it means too much to me. So, instead I’m brainstorming a revamp – something new that will contain less content, but the same type of content mixed with more personal words and photos. It will still look the same because, I think we all agree, this site is GORGEOUS.

The biggest revamp will be the exclusion of Su’s contribution to the site. Su and I have separated after 12 years together as partners and nearly 11 years sharing content on the internet together. I gained custody of Les Beehive in the separation, so it’s just my words and input from here on out. Su’s content will remain archived. She was an important part of Les Beehive’s inception and growth and I’m so grateful for her presence on the site over the past 2 years. Now it’s a solo vamp adventure, and I am excited to have you all by my side while I navigate my new life and learn to speak as a me and not a we.

So stick with me! I have a lot to figure out right now, including a relocation and a job search, but I am dedicated to keeping my voice active and to providing a safe enthusiastic space for you all to admire beauty and find inspiration!

Alright nerds, hold on to your everything because I have a whole lotta GoT/other nerd crossover star photos to throw at you! We’re being blessed with so much Gwendoline Christie right now thanks to the upcoming Star Wars movie, we’ve got a little Emilia Clarke our mother of dragons/John Connor, and hey, why not our favourite Wildling/aspiring secretary maid Rose Leslie (Yes Downton Abbey is a nerd show! I watched every episode even though it got REALLY bad, it sparks devotion! It features costumes and high drama and controversial character deaths. NERRRRRD!)

All of these pictures are beautiful, but lets be real and admit it: THE GWENDOLINE PICTURES ARE BLOWING OUR MINDS! AREN’T THEY? THEY ARE! God, she’s perfect.
