Mojo On My Mind

Danababy240frw
Hey BP Babes!

As I’m writing to you, I’m bouncing my newborn in a baby lounger with my right foot and clutching a super-strong cup of coffee with my left hand, all while I contemplate the new phase my life has just entered.

Yes, I’ve now added “parent-of-two” to the long list of roles I play – entrepreneur, wife, author, mama, friend, daughter, do-er and dreamer. Charlie and I delivered a beautiful baby girl just two weeks ago, and boy, has it been an eventful two weeks. We introduced her to our toddler and began to help him adjust, we had a house full of visitors, I transitioned from sleeping all night to sleeping in short bursts, and of course, I went from being in the mix at BP Headquarters to being in full-charge at the Homefront HQ.  All at once, it’s been beautiful, hazy, precious and chaotic.

Pretty quickly, my body is returning to its pre-pregnancy state. I can see my feet again, and hey, let’s be honest, I can see my everything again! It feels good to get my body back, to start to feel like myself again, to be able to move and stretch without a watermelon being in the way. My hormones are finding equilibrium and the fortress of pregnancy pillows in between the hubby and I has officially been removed. Now, don’t get me wrong – it’s only been 2 weeks. This mama’s Mojo isn’t flying at full speed again. But, I do have Mojo on my mind. I can feel my inner spark reigniting and a driving desire firing up.  I may be packin’ a breast-pump in my purse, but on the flip side, I’m making sure to enjoy this relatively short window of having uber-gorgeous, amped-up “girls.” Unbelievably full nursing cleavage does wonders for my Mojo (and of course, provides my babe with good nutrition!). I’m making an effort to wear my summer wedges and Kissaholic Lip Stain and wash & fluff my ‘fro. My swagger is on its way back and I like it.

As you know, I believe that sex, sexiness and “Mojo’ are just as important as eating, drinking and working out. When I say “Mojo,” what I’m referring to is your feminine sexual spark. It’s your glow that comes from within, your lust for life, love and sex, and all the juicy possibilities that live therein.  Mojo is more than just confidence – it’s sexy self-confidence, your ability to know, embrace and love your body; to know what turns you on and satisfies you, and to then be able to communicate it. And yet, more often than not, so many of us are willing to set our “sexy” aside, dismiss its importance, or simply let it drift to the back burner of our busy lives – especially when we’re going through major life changes like a pregnancy or new-baby, a break-up or divorce, or just under the pressures of juggling a busy professional & home life.

Granted, it’s part of my job to keep my Mojo alive, which may be why I’m getting it moving so quickly after having a baby. But it’s not just because I have to, it’s because I want to. When I rub my still-swollen tummy with body butter, I’m reminded of and reconnected to my power as a woman.  When I take 5 to plumpify my pucker and swipe on some mascara, I feel like a more pulled-together version of me. I’m simply giving my inner vixen the permission to show up each day– even if I’m overtired from midnight feedings and the toddler/newborn juggling act. My little moments of sexy self-care are my daily confidence-boosting practice. And I truly believe that that confidence is my sexiest asset.

Cultivating a true, honest and unique sexy self-confidence makes you feel lit up inside. When you’re nurturing your Mojo, you’ll find your whole world begins to change in a sexier, more enchanted way. When you consciously love your own body, you’re way more enthusiastic to share it with your partner. And on top of all that, when you’re practicing self-love and the pursuit of satisfaction – all of your life’s other endeavors benefit. I know that when I’m paying my Mojo its due attention, I’m a better mama, a much better wife, and a happier, more creative woman, all-around.

So, no matter what’s going on in your life right now, I wanted to check in and remind you just how important, special, meaningful and magical your Mojo can be to you. Go swipe on some gloss and blow yourself a kiss. Or grab your lover and kiss them. Or put on your favorite skirt and flirt with a stranger on the sidewalk. I’ll be right out there with you. But right now? The baby’s down, so I’m gonna go take a nap ;)

Mojo Makeover Book: How it started…and how I started!

describe the imageThe Mojo Makeover book goes on sale today! (Check out my video message from Times Square.) Once you get it, I want you to be in close touch with me, tell me how it’s going—give a shout out for all your “yes!” moments. Clue me in! 

I’ll share what’s happening with me, too. I’m going to kick things off by telling you where the Mojo Makeover book came from. 

It began with…my mom.

Yes, my mom! Besides being gorgeous, charismatic and irresistible, my mom was a makeup artist. She had the ability to transform women’s lives through her makeovers. She’d illuminate their inner sirens, and they’d look at themselves in an entirely different way than when they were finished. Barbara coached them, right there in her chair. She asked questions and got the women to talk about themselves…she was their Vault. When they walked out of the salon, they were lit up from the inside. They exuded sexy self-confidence!

I worked at the beauty salon where my mom did makeup. Watching her, I learned to believe in the beauty and power that exists in every woman. I came to understand that with a little girlfriend-to-girlfriend chat, some practical instruction, and yes, a little lipgloss, you could help any woman discover her unique beauty, feel more alive and boost her inner confidence.

From Beauty Shop to Booty Parlor

In 2004, I started Booty Parlor, a brand of beauty products and sexy bedroom accessories created specifically to boost women’s sexy self-confidence. Every piece offers a way for women to bring their inner vixen out to play. So creating this brand was a natural evolution for me. I modeled it on the close-knit, girly vibe of a beauty shop, where all inhibitions could be left at the door. I wanted women to forget boundaries and feel comfortable asking personal questions. I knew I was right, and I knew women would love it, and they did!

Over the next several years, I educated thousands of women on sex and sexy products, and along the way, I created a program to lead women through their own sexy revolutions….I called it The Mojo Makeover. Its purpose was—and still is—to get women more in tune with their sexy selves. I want everyone to have that blissed-out feeling like the ladies at the beauty shop, and to carry it with them into all parts of their lives.

I’m definitely my own woman, but I have Barbara’s desire to groom women’s inner spark—to set them free to enjoy their curves, their sexiness, their lives. I can’t wait to bring that to all of you and I can’t wait to hear what you think about the book!

Subtle ways to add glow—and grab attention!

168749 490890858122 6203818122 6342714 7447636 s resized 600The Golden Globes are coming soon—this Sunday!—and there will be tons of glamour and glitz and gorgeous body skin on display. Ready to grab the spotlight for your fabulous self? Amp up your sexy self-confidence with a little well-placed shimmer and shine!

1. Pamper yourself with a body scrub. Use it from neck-to-toe. The reason? Besides making skin touchable and soft, when skin’s surface is smooth, it reflects more light and looks radiant. Try Booty Parlor Flirty Little Secret Pink Caviar Scrub. Its raspberry-lemon sorbet scent makes you smell delicious.

2. Dust on some body shimmer. Place it where your skin gets dewy. Think: along your collarbone, your décolletage, and biceps, and along each shinbone. Try Booty Parlor Dust Up Body Shimmer. The buildable shimmer can be worn like a whisper or boldly depending on your mood (and they taste yummy!).  

3. Double up your lip colors. Apply a deep color lipgloss, then dab another lighter shade overtop, onto to the center of your upper and lower lips. Try Booty Parlor Kissaholic Lip Gloss in Swoon, a provocative plum, and top with Tremble, a sheer light pink. The lighter hue will draw attention to the lushest parts of your lips—seduce away!

Ok Booty Parlor babes…we showed you ours, now you show us yours! How will you get your sexy look on this weekend, ‘Globe style? Smoky eyes? A hot and bothered cheek flush? A new pushup bra? Dish!
