Celebrating Women All Year Long | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Beautiful! Happy Women's History Month! What a perfect time to honor the amazing contributions made by women. What a perfect time to honor the amazing woman you are! According to the National Women's History Museum, Women's History Month was once only a week-long event. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980 as Women's History Week. Then, in 1987, Congress passed Public Law 100-9, designating March as “Women’s History Month.” To highlight all the amazing achievements of women in this country would turn this into the longest blog post of all time. Here are just a tiny number of impressive achievements by women throughout history: Dr. Annie Webb Blanton (1870-1945) had lost her twin sister and both of her parents by the time she was just 18 years old. She went on to become the first woman elected President of the Texas State Teachers' Association, and then the first woman elected to a public office in Texas. Blanton promoted equality for women teachers and established a system of free textbooks. Mary Kate Callahan (1996- ) became a paraplegic as an infant after a virus attacked her spinal cord. She took up swimming [...]

Boudoir Bombshell Book Club! | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hi lovely! Welcome to the Boudoir Bombshell Book Club! A good book is truly a treasure, whether you are curled up on a Sunday afternoon with a book and a mug of coffee, or reading on your tablet while riding the subway to work. Many of us like to make New Year's resolutions to read more, yes? Speaking of resolutions, another popular one this time of year is to take better care of ourselves.

Do You Need a Social Media Detox? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Lovely! Like it or not, social media has become a huge part of our daily lives. Even if you personally never log on to Facebook or watch TikTok videos, our society and the people around us are all affected by social media. This phenomenon can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, social media allows us to stay connected with loved ones, learn new things, and expand our horizons. In fact, we at the studio use social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to spread body positivity messages. On the other hand, social media can cause us to doubt ourselves, play small and hide our talents, and compare ourselves unnecessarily to others. There are thousands of social media sites devoted to convincing us that we are not pretty enough, smart enough, or good enough. On a daily basis, it sometimes feels like we are being bombarded by "reminders" that we are somehow less than. Is it Time for a Social Media Detox? Let's answer the following questions to determine if  social media might be making you feel bad about yourself, particularly about your body: Does social media help you to feel MORE or LESS [...]

Back to School, Back to Self-Care? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Bombshell! Another summer is almost in the rear-view mirror. It's time for the kids to head back to school. WHEW. Does it seem like the last few months have been a whirlwind of company picnics, summer vacation trips, pool parties, summer camps, and the kids being the center of pretty much everything? Did you spend your summer planning fun and exciting adventures for your children? What about a fun and exciting adventure for YOU? When was the last time you planned something like that? As wives, mothers, caregivers, and career professionals, we often spend a lot of time taking care of other people. This is not a thankless task at all. However, sometimes, we can use a little tender loving care for ourselves. And one of the best ways to do this? With a boudoir photoshoot, of course! Self-Care is About More Than Bubble Baths When we talk about practicing self-care, we often think of ways to feel pampered, like getting a mani/pedi or relaxing in an inviting bubble bath. Sometimes self-care can be asking for help with household chores. These are all good things, but they aren't really enough. Practicing genuine and actual self-care means we get to [...]

We Get Love Letters! | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Beautiful! We're getting ready for a late summer rainstorm here. It's the perfect weather to curl up with a good book... or a stack of love letters from our awesome boudoir bombshells! "I Would Give More Than Five Stars if I Could!" Bombshell Teresa was positive she was not going to like her boudoir photoshoot, but she decided to go through with it, and she is so happy she did! Read on... Let me tell you about my boudoir photoshoot experience.  I would give it more than 5 stars if I could! The experience was more than a photoshoot for me, it was a chance to celebrate me and my body in a way that I never have before. I’m so glad that I went for it, even though I had some fears at first. First off, I am not someone who feels comfortable in my own skin.  I don’t even change my clothes in front of my partner, if you can believe that. I am the kind of person that typically hides my body. I’ve always been a curvy woman and I try to love my curves, but I’m not always successful at that.  I’m also 45 years [...]
