Smile...or don’t! A boudoir photo shoot is designed to bring our your inner wild woman. This can be a haute gift for your partner or a gift for yourself. You can brazenly pose in red lace garter belts or channel an iconic bombshell historical persona like Josephine Baker or Dorothy Dandridge. Maybe you prefer a modern muse like Serena Williams or Nikki Minaj. The choice is yours.

What I am about to say is totally politically incorrect. Yes, we can often outwork any man. Good for us! However, life is about yin and yang, and many of us are out of balance with the yin. Yin is our divine feminine energy; the key part of ourselves that gets neglected in this go-go-go, “I don’t need anybody else” world.
Put your work to the side and step in your feminine bliss. I’m launching the Sacred Bombshell Self-Love Kits in 2016 to help us revel in our goddessness, inside and out. First up is the Sacred Bombshell Womblove Kit, which contains healing Yoni Tea, a Yoni Egg, and bespoke mind-body-spirit potions co-created with an aromatherapist and herbalist. Get on the list to learn more and get a free virtual self-worth kit at OwnYourBombshell.com.
Tap into your feminine self by being softer, more vulnerable, and receptive. Be open to being loved, honored, and cherished. It is healthy to want to love and to want to be loved. Whether you are single, committed, or otherwise engaged, embrace and awaken your divine feminine.

Tune out from stress and tune into your Self. If you or your honey needs help relaxing, try a calm-inducing tool like Muse, the meditation headband.
For once in your busy life, put your brain away. Trust the Universe and just let go. Whether alone, or with the love of your life, let your mind go and your body will follow. The joy you are seeking is also seeking you.
Hot happy holidays!
