Happy National Ex Spouse Day: Celebrate Being A Single Lady

Today, Friday April 14, is National Ex Spouse Day (we swear we didn’t make this up) and we are celebrating strong single ladies. While there is no greeting card for this holiday, this “wacky” holiday encourages you to take a positive look at the past and honor ex.

You may be thinking, why would there be a holiday to celebrate your ex? Do we really want to spend our precious time thinking about the past, and dredging up thoughts about relationships that led to a painful divorce? Our answer is yes! Letting go of the past is a huge part of personal growth, and taking a moment to think positive about something painful is step one in the direction of health and happiness (and good karma, too). The non-traditional holiday was created in 1987 by Rev. Ronald Coleman to honor his failed marriage- and the holiday has become a movement in pop culture since…and we’re getting behind the idea of taking a moment to celebrate YOU- the best he ever had!

Most holidays honor significant events or people who changed the world, but let’s be honest…your ex changed his world the day he lost you, and THAT’S something to smile about. By finding a way to embrace the positive ways your ex changed your life, it makes it easier to celebrate where you are currently in your life. Whether your ex changed you for the better or the worse, they changed you and put you on the path to where you are today. National Ex Spouse Day is about taking a moment — not to celebrate a failed marriage, but to celebrate love, beauty, passion, and intimacy…and that’s exactly what we are helping woman celebrate not only for National Ex Spouse Day, but 365 days a year.

We’re not suggesting you send a card to your ex. But if you want to do something, we say bare it all! Man or no man, embrace your battle scars that make you truly beautiful. It’s time to shed the past and bare it all for YOU, because the most important relationship of all is loving yourself and your life- despite imperfections.

Get inspired by these women who said goodbye to their hubby and hello to celebrating their independence with us:

Are you ready to honor your ex with the gift he will never be able to have again?! 😉 We are ready to help you, so book now!

Top 3 Tips to Boost Mommy Confidence

It isn’t a secret that as moms, we may act like superheroes, but don’t always feel like we look like Super Woman. It’s time to change that, ladies! When is the last time you pampered yourself? When is the last time you felt truly beautiful? When is the last time you celebrated your personal features?

From PTA meetings to soccer games and ballet practice (not to mention business meetings in between), mommies are always putting their families and others before themselves; it’s time to celebrate yourself, embrace your natural beauty, and realize you are more special than the models in the magazines!

Studies show that 40 percent of post-pregnancy moms feel more self-conscious in front of their partner and approximately a third say that their body confidence has hit rock bottom.

At Le Boudoir Studio, we are more than a female owned and operated photography studio; we are mommies, wives, daughters and empowered women, just like you. We understand the woes of motherhood, which is why It’s our mission to make ALL women and mothers feel truly beautiful and capture the natural, unique confidence each of us possess. So come on mommies, it’s your time to shine!

Tips and Tricks for Moms to Feel Great:

  1. Find some “me” time
  • Find something that makes you smile and make it part of your daily routine, even if it’s just for 20 minutes.
  • Take a bubble bath, go on a walk or catchup with your best friend over a glass of wine – because you deserve it!
  • Remember that it’s okay to escape for an hour to have your nails or hair done. Don’t feel guilty!
  • Slow down and stop worrying. All moms are beautiful!
  1. Don’t be hard on yourself
  • Remind yourself that your body did something amazing and you have created a beautiful family. Be proud!
  • Accept that you’re probably your own worst critic. No one else is expecting you to look perfect every day.
  • You may see yourself as having a wobbly tummy, but you still have great legs/swishy hair/beautiful eyes, and a beautiful core!
  1. Define what beautiful means to YOU
  • Recognize that even if your body never goes back to its pre-pregnancy state, it’s not the end of the world. Define what beautiful means to YOU, and celebrate your own personal features. Our mommy “battle scars” are  shared by millions of moms all over the world, embrace them.
  • Focus on your favorite features and don’t be afraid to compliment yourself or show them off!
  • Maybe it’s your eyes, your smile, your thoughtfulness or your uncanny ability to find humor in everything.
  • You are beautiful inside and out. Focus on your attributes in a positive way, and let them shine!
