When Is It Okay to Lie? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, beautiful! When is it okay to lie, in your opinion? Well, not on your taxes, that's for sure. And it's never a good idea to lie under oath. But what about little white lies? Are they okay? What if the lie is for a good cause? For example, what if you are trying to keep a big secret from a very special someone? Surprise, Surprise While I do not encourage lying--especially lying to your significant other--sometimes, there are good reasons to do so. Let's say, for example, that you're planning a boudoir photoshoot. And let’s say that you want to give the boudoir album to someone special in your life. And let’s say that you want to keep this boudoir photoshoot and album a surprise from that special someone. See where I am going with this?

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 [...]
