Last week, Jenn and I had our adventure to see the Suicide Girls Blackhearts Burlesque show. It proved to be quite the experience.

They were so inspiring. Their bodies were great, but not perfect. There were absolutely some dimples in places. But do you think any of them gave a shit if there was some cellulite or if their belly jiggled a bit? Hell no. They were the picture of confidence, completely owning the room.

It was so much fun, and it actually made me get around to blogging about something that I've been kind of putting off for quite some time. Last year I actually had some boudoir pictures done. It was a bit of a whim - a friend of mine who is a photographer was looking for volunteers to do boudoir sessions so she could hone her skills. I thought it sounded fun and needed a bit of a boost at the time so I signed up. Before I had any time to stress about feeling out of shape or like I shouldn't be doing it, I was sitting in Wendy's studio getting my hair and makeup done. Wendy does amazing work - she eased me into things by starting out with more of a glamour shoot before things turned to boudoir. Nothing too crazy - just in a bra and underwear, which really isn't any different than being in a bathing suit. Wendy made me feel so freaking confident the whole time though - I didn't worry about how I looked, it just rolled with it. Wendy assured me the whole time that I looked amazing and you know what? By the end of the session I completely believed her. And when I got the pictures back, I agreed with her. I guess sometimes you really do need to let yourself go and embrace your most confident self. While I don't think I'm cut out for burlesque (hello lack of coordination) I would 100 percent have Wendy do more boudoir pictures for me. Everybody needs a little confidence boost now and then!
