Its 107 heat index and I want to talk faux fur?! Really? Well ya, its going to be winter day after tomorrow so lets get ready for fall fashion. New to market is Happy Boa’s Faux Fur Festival Boa. “I already have fake fur in my closet” Ya but not like this. Happy Boa is using yarn to make what may be the softest faux fur around. “Oh my!” It happens almost every time a customer touches a Happy Boa faux fur for the first time. They know faux fur is pretty but can be a little rough. They feel the Festival Boa and want to know if its available as a comforter. Not kidding. Its that soft. Super soft.
So its a little slinky, not as full as some other products out there, so call it trim or svelte. Its minimalist. Maybe its a scarf more than a boa, but no matter what you call it, its different from other faux furs. And they come in bold colors that add a splash of color while not being loud. It mischievously says “look at me” rather than screaming “I want to be noticed”. Hey we all want to be noticed but in a good way. Seven colors are in stock including blacklight friendly Hot Yellow or choose Ice White, Bisbee Blue, Red, Hot Pink, Soft Pink or the never out of style black .
Black and Bisbee Blue look so chic on a well dressed male. On a tuxedo or matching bow tie, the Happy Boa faux fur sets your man apart from all the other black and white formal penguins at the gala. He stands out while again not screaming for attention.
So why do they call it a Festival Boa? Well turns out the Rave and EDM crowd like the super sexy faux fur for their costumes and outfits. Look for the blacklight Hot Yellow to make a grand entry at the all night dance parties. But with the fall weather a nice faux fur festival boa around your neck is a good idea to stay warm when the sun sets at your next music festival. And for socially conscious music fans its all about MOOP and LNT. No idea what that is? Well for festivals like Burning Man, it has become policy to not destroy the earth you party on. MOOP is Matter Out of Place so feather boas are a no no because you leave a mess behind. LNT is Leaving No Trace which is almost impossible with tens of thousands off music worshippers but its good policy to think about your impact when its multiplied by thousands of fellow attendees. So Happy Boa is a product that by design doesn't shed or leave messy feathers behind. And because its washable it will survive those three day festivals and be ready for that next road trip event.
Another important impact is on animals. Happy Boa is vegan friendly because no animals products are used to make any of their boas. No feathers. No fur. Fun fashion with good karma.
They are a new company but their retail network is growing and you can find them 24/7 on Amazon and happyboa.com. But photos don't tell the whole story, you've gotta feel that faux fur to get that “Ohhhhhhh!!!” moment.
This looks interesting! Seth Meyers reboots The Munsters with NBC. Not much info but some cool Getty photos that seem to give the reboot an interesting modern twist to the 1960's era black and white comedy featuring a Middle America Monster Family.
I watched Munster reruns countless times a s a kid, it was right up there with The Addams family for spooky but innocent fun. The modern Munsters looks to have a mischievous and maybe more dark or cynical bent? Who knows. Its an NBC project so lets see where they take it. If it was on AMC or Netflix you know the dark humor would seep into the script. So will NBC take some chances or play it safe? It seems everything has been remade for TV or Cinema and sometimes is a lazy way of making new content, but I'm honestly excited to hear The Munsters are coming back. Seth Myers probably has a few devilish tricks up his sleeve to make for some great laughs and in today's mixed up world there is no shortage of topics he can delve into to make some biting commentary but give us a few laughs.
I ran across the news from my daily email Your Daily Wrap by Getty Images. See all thats happening across the world in about 5 brilliant photos. The lead off was the tense and tragic experience of racial protests in Charlottesville, so it was nice to see the last images had a bit of comic relief with the news of The Munsters. It brought back memories of time well spent enjoying comedy from an era that was just as complex but wasn't allowed to show it in sitcoms. But looking back at old episodes I'm sure writers were able to write between the lines to get past the censors. We've always lived in challenging times and humor has been a great vehicle to call ou those who need calling out. Seth Myers has a great cynical wit so lets see where he takes this project.
Here's the Getty link if you want to see images from the new episodes. http://www.gettyimages.com/album/nbc-to-resurrect-the-munsters-nbc-and-seth-meyers--9O0EnGRV7EOXtT7oB1EVyg?esource=EML_GI_BAT_BND_CON_20170814_DRU.NAM_E1V1_non_none_172956_enUS_SEG&utm_medium=email&utm_source=eloqua#pilot-pictured-mason-cook-as-eddie-eddie-izzard-as-d-charity-as-picture-id153930311
From Vegas to the Valley, we are seeing a lot more Burlesque Bachelorette Parties. Its a fun way to burn off the stress from wedding planning.
Hosting at a Burlesque studio is a naughty but nice spin on letting loose before the BIG DAY. Releasing your inner wild chid through dance is fun, sexy and guilt free because its all innocent fun with your girlfriends.
Every one has their wild side, it may just be buried a little deeper and need some coaxing to the surface. Professional instructors show you all the hot moves and insider secrets to get the blood flowing and the party going!
And with no guys in the room, its a judgement free zone so you can let loose with your close friends. Its kind of that what happens in Vegas attitude, even if its just in a studio down the street from your house.
Adding to the fun are party and dance props like boas that accentuate your sexy dance routine. Burlesque instructors are moving away from using featherless boas to a new featherless boa called Happy Boa. Its feather free so its mess free. No feathers on the floor or scratchy quills poking your neck.
We recently met studio owner and instructor Melissa Cloutier in Las Vegas where she instantly fell in love with our Faux Fur boa. She ordered a dozen and will be using them for classes and bachelorette parties. Check out Red Hot & Ladlylike Dance Studio on faceBook in the next few weeks to see the new Happy Boa in action.
So if you are a Maid of Honor or one of the bride's maids, consider a burlesque bachelorette party the bride will never forget. Who knows, it might even lead to taking some classes to keep the passionate fires burning in the bedroom longer after the honey moon.
