The Bombshell Manual of Style

By Laren Stover

Having a little trouble finding your inner sex kitten???? You are not alone; many of us put her away for a more practical way of life.  Even the author of this book was guilty of the same crime until a breathy pencil skirt, tight sweater wearing co-worker in 4 inch heels sauntered into a work meeting and inspired her to write this book. This book is in my opinion one of the best little pieces of inspiration to get your sex kitten out of the closet and back into circulation. Using bomshell veterans like Delores Del Rio, Dorothy Dandridge, Marylin Monroe and Sophia Loren as examples to name a few; Laren reminds us of the kind of purses a bomshell carries, her wardobe, her tantrums, the kind of perfume she wears (nothing that smells like a fruit cocktail or food product) how she enters or leaves a room is science, and many more delightful tidbits. When I feel my bombshell fading under the pressures of life, this is one of the books I pick up and read over and over and over again. You can find copies on amazon for a few dollars. Your inner bombshell will thank you for it!

Mr. Hubba Hubba of the Month

The Nicolas Brothers

Today's dancers could take a few cues from these masters of movement. They were the amazing Nicolas brothers.  Fayard (19142006) and Harold (19212000) were as facinating duo to watch. Flash dancing a highly acrobatic technique that requires high level of artistry and daring innovations was their specailty.They were considered by many the greatest tap dancers of their day. Growing up surrounded by Vaudeville acts as children, they became stars of the jazz circuit during the heyday of the Harlem Renaissance and went on to have successful careers performing on stage, film, and television well into the 1990s. They had fans in every generation including the late Michael Jackson and his brothers.  Although they have earned their wings, Fayard and Nicolas' fans will always remember them through their stage performances and film. Two hubba hubbas for the price of one this month.
