Festive Beauty























Bombshells! It's getting so close to Christmas, darlings. Halleleujah! Here are a couple of my own beauty picks of the season to help you organise yourselves and look your Bombshell best!
 Who really wants a cluttered boudoir anyway?  I have just so many beauty products, I could have a whole separate apartment for them entirely!  I first came across this great organiser on Khloe Kardashian's makeup stand.  It has 6 fabulous drawers with a lift-up lid on the top.  I admit it's not the prettiest of organisers but it is just so simply brilliant and useful!  You can get your own fantastic clutter-minimising cube from a selection at   http://theacryliccube.com/
 
Laura Mercier's range of colours are a favourite of mine. Each year she produces a limited edition range of handy, cost-effective makeup palletes that are just so useful.  This is a limited edition Luxe Eye Portfolio by Laura Mercier which contains 12 exclusive eye shadow colours and 3 deluxe mini brushes. So handy. The price is about $98us. 

Get your mittens on them kittens!!

Bvlgari Bombshell

Sotirios Voulgaris started Bvlgari as a unique italian jewelry design company.  It's designs are very distinctive and often counterfeited and imitated.   Coloured stones such as sapphires mixed in unique formats are almost a Bvlgari trademark.  Now Bvlgari also create watches, accessories, fragrances, skincare and leather goods.

The latest and inspiring advertising campaigns feature beautiful bombshells (Julianne Moore and Rachel Weisz) with equally beautiful animals.

Miss Faye

I've been meaning to do a feature on the fabulous Faye Dunaway for such a long time, I was starting to feel guilty about not doing it.  So here it is.  A feature, albeit rather small, on Miss Faye.

Her real name is Dorothy. Dorothy Faye Dunaway. She started off as a beauty queen in Florida USA and progressed into being an actress (as so many Bombshells do) in New York but with a reputation of being temperamental.  That shouldn't instantly qualify her for being a Diva. Please don't shut her into the Diva category as she's still full of Bombshell worthiness.

Faye was considered for the role of Domino Derval in 1965 James Bond 007 film Thunderball and also for Octopussy in 1983.  Rightly so, as you can see she's a very beautiful woman and would make a memorable Bond Girl.
Faye has been married to both a rock singer and a high profile British photographer and has one adopted son. Her fabulous career consists of being a beauty queen, an actress, a director, a producer and a writer.
A feature which marks her as a Bombshell and cancels out the negative for her temperamental work nature is that she drives a humble 2007 Toyota Corolla and prefers to rent apartments as opposed to owining various sprawling, swanky estates.

Le Crazy Horse De Paris


Crazy Horse Parisian (est 1951) cabaret lounge is a very well-respected and famous burlesque revue known for its innovative stage shows performed by nude female dancers covered with artistic light images and for the diverse range of acts, including magicians between each show.

The venue is built in what used to be twelve wine cellars from King George VI.

Each showgirl you see in this clip has been deliberately chosen to be identical and indistinguishable. They are measured to be the exact height, breasts (34b) exactly the same size and even their navels must be an exact distance from their pubic bone.

Expect to pay about £90 per ticket.

Get Marilyn's Hair

Welcome to my second how-to lesson in Bombshell hairstyling. It's very simple to create with my step by step instructions.

Today, we are learning how to style our lovely locks in the classic Marilyn Monroe style.  This hairstyle is more ideal for Bombshells who have hair which is approximately shoulder length, give or take an inch or two. If you have longer hair, perhaps you'd rather recreate Veronika Lake's hairstyle, just look for the tips and techniques in my archives.

Start by washing and towel drying your hair and apply a little styling balm or gel to the entire lengths.

Select medium sized velcro hair rollers which ideally will allow you to wrap your locks one and a half to two times around the roller.

Wrap one inch segments of hair around the roller. A good tip to remember is the more hair you put into each roller, the looser the curl. Zig-zagging or assymetrical roller placement will result in a more natural look.
At the front of your head, above your forehead, roll the hair forward towards your face.  All other rollers should be rolled towards the nape of your neck.

I like to dry my hair using a bonnet dryer as I am impatient, but if you have time on your side, you can just let it dry naturally. 

Try this link to amazon if you'd like to purchase a bonnet dryer, they aren't expensive and they are extremely usefull.

When your hair is totally dry, use your fingers splayed out to gently soften the curls by running them through your hair. You may like to use a cylindrical vent brush to finish the style.

Never forget to use your trustee hairspray (always a bombshells secret weapon) to set your style for durability and hold.

Do let me know how you go, Kittens. 
Of course, I'd really love to see photographs. Kitty x
