Intro to Pin-Up with #squadbettie

Just starting out in pin-up? Looking for new tips, tricks or ideas? Want to be a part of a positive community?


We had a candid discussion about all things pin-up with three knowledgeable and established pin-up models and one very talented hair and makeup artist.  (Plus we had burlesque performer and vintage clothing aficionado, Maid Marian!)

Our class started off with Mod Bettie’s own resident rockstar and vintage styling queen, Jen Bartlett.  Jen walked the class through a quick hair and makeup styling session with model Catherine Sercy. There was SO much great information presented.  Here’s a simplified list of Jen’s Dos/Don’ts and a few tricks:

  • Always pin your curls after curling and let them dry

  • Don’t force it-- your hair, relationships or that last slice of pizza

  • Hats, hair flowers, and scarves can be great tools for unruly hair

  • Might be a good idea to have a glass of wine handy

  • Let your eyelash glue set before attaching them, your lashes will stay on better and you won’t end up with clumpy glue on your eyelid

  • The black eyelash glue is nice, but it burns if you get it in your eyes

  • When using liner or doing your brows, think of them as sisters or cousins; they do not have to be twins.  Don’t stress, have a sip of that wine

  • Classic lip colors: Red (duh), pink, orange, and coral

  • Makeup, soft and matte

  • ABOVE ALL: have fun with it and make it your own.  Do what makes YOU feel amazing

Check out Jen’s makeup tutorial:


Next, blogger and self-described pin-up princess, Sassy Scarlett, talked a little bit about the history of pin-ups and styling.  Pin-up got its start in the late 1800s. Through the liberation of women in the 1920s with the flapper movement, the 40s with their empowerment in the workforce during WWII, and the sexual revolution of women in the 60s, being a pin-up is ALL about feminism.   

Pin-up fashion does not have to be expensive.  Checkout antique stores, thrift stores, and garage sales. If you are looking for something special, there are lots of amazing online shops and local seamstresses that can help.  If you are local, we recommend Sew Retro Fashions and Iconoclasp. You can accentuate your look with vintage accents like broaches, parasols, scarves, purses, and tiny dogs (if that’s your thing).  Just as with hair and makeup, make it your own. Wear what makes you feel great! Find your style and rock it.

Pin-up Godmother Valerie Voiture walked us through classic pin-up posing.  Val’s step-by-step guide:

  1. Make a V with your feet, move foot A in to the curve of foot B

  2. Slight bend in the knee of foot A

  3. Pop your hip/butt and put the weight on to leg B.  Shoulders back, tits up!

  4. Hand B on your natural waist, hand A is free to position elsewhere

  5. Pretend that you are holding an orange in each hand

  6. Turn your body slightly to the side.  Not straight on, not completely on the side.  45 degree angle

  7. Eyes at 2, 4, 7, and 11 (Think old-school clock with hands.).

  8. Mouth the vowels to get different classic pin-up expressions. A,E,I,O & U

  9. BREATHE, maybe grab that glass of wine again

It can be difficult to remember all the steps, but remembering the most important -  pop the butt and hips, shoulders back, and breathe - your photos and stage presence will improve greatly!!

Now that you have the tools, you are ready to attend pin-up events or compete in a contest. Mod Bettie’s resident pin-up model, Trixie VonHopps, talked all things contests.  Pin-up contests can be amazing opportunities to make friends, get inspiration, and (possibly) win awesome prizes! Remember, it is just as important to be a gracious loser as well as a gracious winner.  Contests should be fun. Just by getting up on that stage, you are SO brave. Remember to rock your individual style and be true to yourself.

What should you bring with you to pin-up contests?  Here are some suggestions for your Go-Bag:

  • Bobby pins, a small comb, hairspray

  • Safety pins

  • An extra pair of shoes (flats)

  • Eyelash glue

  • A mirror

  • Lipstick

  • Makeup wipes

  • Gum, snacks, water

We hope to see all of you stunning pin-ups at our Mod Bettie Pin-up contest!

Vodka welcome.
Vulnerability encouraged.

You've seen posts, read the comments and heard statements like, "Selfies are so vain," "Why does she take so many pictures of herself?" "Who does she think she is?"

*THIS IS WHERE WE WAVE A GIANT RED FLAG IN THE AIR AND SAY, UH-UH, SISTER. NOT HAPPENING ON MY WATCH.* 

In a society that puts a camera in every hand but is quick to shame the selfie, our mission is to empower women by creating a safe and supportive environment for female self-expression. So help me vodka.

Mod Bettie Wanderlux Spa takeover!

63315.jpeg

After surviving the snowpocalypse and ice storm 2019 these betties were ready for some pampering and relaxation.  So the Mod B Betties took over Wanderlux Beauty & Wellness Co.!

If you have not checked this amazing little gem out yet, book yourself a service, STAT! When you walk in to this gorgeous space, your senses are tickled by all of the glorious fragrances of relaxation.  The fireplace, velvet curtains, and ornate gold mirrors create an atmosphere of pure comfort. Jessica Geerling has created a beautiful space for female wellness.

FotoJet.jpg

We each received three of their signature services, Zenned Out Stress Relief Treatment, Sister Yoni Steam, and the Infrared Sauna Session. 

The Zenned Out Stress Relief Treatment is 60 minutes of full body bliss.  Madelyn and Julie provided us with a mini facial, foot and calf treatment, arm and hand massage, and neck, shoulder and scalp massage! All relaxation treatment performed with essential oils, heat therapy, massage and natural & organic facial products.  Hayley said it all, this beauty walked out of her massage, skin a glow, “I feel like a new woman.”

The Infrared Sauna Session is a full spectrum infrared sauna. The each color promotes different types of healing.  We chose indigo, which helps alleviate chronic pain. The warmth seems to inspires people.  The notebook inside the sauna is full of poems, stories and inspiration from the amazing women who have sat in here.  Creating a kind of sisterhood.

Speaking of sisterhood, the service I’m sure you’re all the MOST interested in, Sister Yoni Steam.

Becky is Certified Reiki Practitioner, Certified Vaginal Steam Facilitator, Postpartum and Well-Woman Healer and Doula, and Certified Lactation Counselor!  This bettie has it all.  Becky walked us through the history and process of this holistic ancient & sacred women’s wellness ritual in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to permeate the exterior of her vagina.  While our vagina teas was steeping, Becky lead us through a beautiful, relaxing and healing session with a card reading and energy healing. Our goddess cards were SPOT ON! Then were began our yoni steamed.  Wrapped up in the most luscious blanket and eye mask, we melted into the experience!

For over 3 years this B has been my right hand Bettie.  Hayley has been worn so many hats over the years at Mod B: videographer, photographer, blogger, stylist, editor… She was instrumental in the opening of Naughty  Bettie. Hayley has been by my side through all the growing pains that a small business has. Saying goodbye is ALWAYS hard.

International Women’s Day at 20 Monroe Live

History is HERstory…….

International Women’s Day is NOT just another Hallmark holiday.  Stand up Betties, it’s time for a little background history on the holiday.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. It’s a call to action.  First celebrated in the United States in 1909 (you read that right, 1909!! 10 years before those badass suffragettes won us the right to vote with the passing of the 19th Amendment!), then adopted internationally beginning in 1910.  In 1975 the United Nations adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations’ Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.  

WEB-2-32.jpg

Now to the event!  After a fantastic acoustic set by Maggie May, Judge Sara Smolenski took the stage with an opening full of passion and excitement.  She discussed Michigan’s history-making election of 2018, with women being elected to all three top offices: Governor, Secretary of State and Attorney General. The future is female.  

WEB-0613.jpg

Then the self-described trouble maker, the Honorable Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, took the stage.  This brilliant woman is an example of how you can do anything you set your mind to.  She’s an immigrant, single mother of 5, and Michigan’s FIRST female JAG officer in the Michigan Army National Guard.  Most notably of late, she was the presiding judge on the Larry Nassar case, giving 156 “sister survivors” a voice.

The event ended with a Q&A segment.

WEB-2-114.jpg

“Hell yes I have PMS! Promote, Mentor, Support.”

Better Body Image Conference 2019

If you were not at Saturday’s Better Body Image (BBI) Conference, you missed an amazing and empowering event!

The morning started off with breakfast burritos (YUM) and an inclusive photo booth, courtesy of yours truly, MOD BETTIE.  (Check out the photo booth photos below!)

FIND YOUR INNER POWER!

Keynote speaker, social justice activist Dianne Bondy, is an author, accessible yoga teacher, and the leader of the Yoga For All movement. Her inclusive approach to yoga empowers anyone to practice—regardless of their shape, size, ethnicity, or level of ability. Dianne is revolutionizing yoga by educating yoga instructors around the world on how to make their classes welcoming and safe for all kinds of participants. You could feel the energy in the room as she spoke. Her Q&A raised important issues like how can you be perfect just the way you are, but still reach for improvement.

Mama Cheryl is ALWAYS there to support, inspire and tell us like it is!

Then there were the fantastic workshops that included: How to Talk with Your Children about Body Image, with Gail Hall of MIEDA, sponsored by Lisa Lehmann Designs. Making Space for Embodied Self-Compassion with Rachael Koeson, Making Space Hakomi. How to Be a Body Acceptance Ambassador in Our Society, sponsored by Michelle Krick Style, and last but not least, A Conversation about Disability with Elliot Keyes and Cassaundra Wolf. There were so many amazing speakers I wish I could have attended all of them!

BBIConference-4738.jpg

The LGBTQ+ Panel Talk on Body Image featured some of our very own Bettie’s, Jackie Green and Star Buxom. The discussion touched on how body image is inclusive to every person in every body. BBI put together a panel of local experts within the LGBTQ+ community to promote awareness, acceptance, and understanding. It was very eye opening about the difficulties that binary, transgendered, LGB, and inner-sexed folx experience in everyday life.

BBIConference-4841.jpg

Fat, Black & Gifted: An Intimate Conversation with Latesha Lipscomb was a candid conversation that took a deep dive into ethnicity, beauty, confidence, self-love and the social-cultural constructs that threaten how women of color view themselves in a predominantly Westernized civilization.

FotoJet (5).jpg

The conference wrapped up with move and groove yoga presented by a BBI board member, Emily Martin of Any Body Yoga. Attendees had a surprise treat with music from Lady Ace Boogie, singing her hit song, You’re Magic. The conference broke out in a dance party!

Two of the most sensual performers in Grand Rapids steamed up the windows on this chilly winter night!

Michee Rose  rocked the room with both a belly dance and a chair dance. I didn’t even know you could do snake arms with your legs? Did you see her upper body strength? #goals.

Hedy Harper  is always a dream. Her burlesque performances are reminiscent of traditional burlesque. With a both balloon and a feather boa performance, she had tassels twirling! We even had a few betties bouncing to see if they could recreate it!

Liz Nolan  helped us embrace our inner sexiness though a 35 minute tantric meditation class.

#SQUADBETTIE: PANTY RAID!

_OD_0268_WEB.jpg

Panty Raid invited women from West Michigan to BAND together (pun intended) to get crafty, create custom sexy accessories, and get in some pole practice. And, as always, the squad came through.

Squad Assemble!

What do you get when you bring together an army of brave, bold, and beautiful Betties? You get #SquadBettie. And then what do you get when you gather the squad and add some feathers, a hot glue gun, and a local designer taking custom orders for the PERFECT. FITTING. PANTY? You get this amazingness:

_OD_0088_WEB.jpg
Local designer Ashley, of  Iconoclasp , brought the Panty Raid a very special opportunity. With her personal picks of fabrics, prints, and styles available for the choosing, guests were able to build the ideal panty. With measurements taken for each individual, the perfect panty will be constructed, one-of-a-kind and tailored just for her!

A Bettie, a Bettie, and a Bettie walk into a bar.

Let's be real, networking can be hard. Whatever it is you call work, it's always important to make connections and find sources of support, inspiration, and camaraderie in the community around you. But how?! It's so easy to "heart" someone's post to show support, or to stalk their account for inspo from behind a screen. But we challenge women to network in the flesh. Shake hands, exchange business cards, mingle! Ask questions and take notes with one hand, while eating a mini bundt cake with the other. That's how!  There's nothing more empowering than complimenting another woman's accomplishments to her face.

Motivation Monday: Angela Hill

Meet Angela—world traveler, minimalist, veteran, foodie, business owner, and don’t forget breathtaking Bettie!

Born in Texas, Angela moved to Michigan at a young age. She studied Spanish at Saginaw Valley State University, and upon graduation chose to follow in the footsteps of many in her family by joining the Navy. She wanted to serve her country and see the world. Based in DC, she went into intelligence and held both a military and a civilian career at the same time. She worked in various industries, in embassies, and she traveled to support federal operations.

Longing to utilize her creative side, she used her GI Bill to go back to school for interior design, and in 2015 she returned to Michigan to utilize her analytical skills working within the manufacturing industry as an analyst. During this time, Angela and her brother had started operations on a new company, Jadex, an IT consulting firm, which has grown into a full-time career.

_OD_0663-2_WEB.jpg

"Women represent 11 percent of the IT field, this is a problem. I want to help women feel empowered in that space and promote leadership for women in IT."

_OD_0500-2_WEB.jpg

Jadex is a woman, veteran, and minority owned business that teaches companies how to design their data and optimize their technology. Angela saw a gap in the way companies adopt technology, and she’s passionate about helping businesses be aware of national security threats and protect their data.

_OD_0170-2_WEB.jpg

"Most businesses struggle with information management, resulting in missed opportunities for sharing, collaboration, and forecasting insights."

_OD_0589_WEB.jpg

Angela has also created a group on MeetUp (an app that helps people organize around common interests) called Women and Tech-Grand Rapids. The group encourages networking amongst women in technology where they can voice their concerns and get involved in the community.

_OD_0144-2_WEB.jpg
_OD_0609-2_WEB.jpg

What services does Jadex offer?

Angela meets Mod B

Angela found Mod Bettie through a work friend, and from the moment she saw Elise’s photographs, she fell in love. She loved that every woman Elise photographed appeared empowered and authentically true in her own skin.

Elise was awesome—she really made me feel confident with my body.”  

_OD_0700-2_WEB.jpg
_OD_0813-2_WEB.jpg

“I try to find something to be grateful for every day. Life’s more beautiful that way.”

_OD_0579_WEB.jpg

Get Connected!

Angela’s suggested networking groups for women:

INFORUM

“Inforum is the only professional organization in Michigan—and one of the few in the country—that combines strategic connections, proven professional development programs, a respected forum for new ideas, and original research to accelerate careers for women and boost talent initiatives for companies.”

WOMEN IN CONNECTION

“Our mission is to empower women to build purpose driven successful businesses that allow them to live an enriched life and contribute to the world. We do this through business and mindset education, practical application steps, and deep connection networking.”
