Blog Update | What is happening? |

What has been happening? It really has been a crazy month. I have not blogged in the last week because I currently have a new job and I started 2 weeks ago on Monday. Everything has been hetic because I am still at my old job too and when I have been getting home blogging has not been on my mind. I love my blog and I do not want to neglect it in anyway, Lottie's Lott was created in February  2015 and since then I have been so dedicated to it. Its become something that I love and I have worked so hard to get it to be something that I am happy with. It may not be like some blogs where there have different layouts and fonts but I have been getting some great things about it which has made me feel great! 

I love writing about all the different Old Hollywood Stars, Pin Ups and a few fashion bits too. I really wanted to do this blog update because I thought I had to tell you about why I have not been posting in the last couple of weeks. I have two blog ideas in my mind one about some vinyls I chose 2 weeks ago whilst visiting the grandparents and a Whats in my bag? Yes I know what you are thinking it really doesnt go however I have a vintage satchel and thought it would be perfect for my blog. I know everyone does this but people seem to love them so why cannot I do one. Its just an idea so it may not happen but hopefully it will! I did post an instagram picture of my new bag which I bought over a month ago so a few of you might have already seen it.

Thank you to everyone who follows me on instagram and Twitter! I love reading your comments and tweets!

Blog lovin - I do not use it for posting my blogs on to it. I actually do not even know how too. I just like to save and read other people's. In my biography it does have the link to my blog account. 

Thank you for reading and I will be back soon. I am hoping to have a new post up by the weekend so keep your eyes peeled for that. A spoiler will on my instagram and twitter in the next couple of days (possibly Friday)!

Love Lottie xxx

Betty Brosmer I Pin Up Model

Betty Brosmer? You know the girl with the hourglass figure that people adored but never knew how she could get such a tiny waist? I have always been intrigued by her and after seeing lots of pictures of her I have finally got round to doing one. Betty Brosmer was the highest paid pin up model from the 1950s and the most precious example of the hourglass figure. How could you not love Betty?!
She was the first true 'supermodel' and she did not stop there. She also had a long and happy career in the fitness and bodybuilding field, mostly due to her marriage with Joe Weider; an American bodybuilder and entrepreneur.

".. there will never be another glamour girl like Betty Brosmer. Her classically sunny all-American blonde beauty was a worthy counterpart to that of Marilyn Monroe. Her magnificent contoured-beyond-perfection figure was without equal. Further, there was a glow, an incandescence about Betty that was not to be found in any other model. And the total package was son utterly winning that Betty - without every revealing much more epidermis than one would be likely to see at the beach - was the definitive super model of the 1950s." - Steve Sullivian

Betty's waist measured in at 18 inches with a 38 inch bust and 36 inch hips. (This was before the age of photoshop) It is speculated that Betty achieved her tiny waist with a little help from the practise corset training, also know as waist training, waist reduction or tightlacing for moulding a pronounced and significantly smaller waist.

Black and white pictures are the best!

Thank you for reading this blog post all about the wonderful Betty Brosmer. I was planning on doing a Marilyn Monroe Tribute celebrating her life on August 4th but I already posted a blog post about her and felt that I did not need to do another as leading up to Marilyn's death I was posting instagram pictures of her. I also felt like I wanted to blog about a pin up model too.

Old Hollywood Star Favourite I Marilyn Monroe

"She was a girl who knew when to be happy even when she was sad" - Marilyn Monroe

Since I started this blog I've been so interested in watching youtube video's such as Sprinkle Of Glitter and Zoella. Like Louise and Zoe, other youtubers and bloggers do a video or a blog post once a month called 'favourite's and I have decided to do one for my blog but instead of it being based around beauty products and clothing mine's on an old Hollywood star and their pictures. I really wanted to get some information into Marilyn Monroe's favourite pictures of herself but I could not unfortunately so I have chosen a few of mine.

This Old Hollywood Star Favourite Blog Post will be a series of different favourite pictures and every month there will be a different old Hollywood Star.

I picked these first two pictures of her because in every photo of her and I have seen so many she always look so beautiful and elegant. I think the first picture shows her dancing ability and how elegant she looks. I also love the second photo because she loved animals. Both pictures look amazing, I also love black and white photo's too so that was a bonus!

Both of these photo's are from a tumblr fan page of Marilyn

The reason I chose these pictures of Marilyn is because I love her different facial expressions!

The coloured one has some lovely photo's of her towards the end of her life where in some if you look really closely she looks tired and does not look very well.

I loved seeing Marilyn with longer hair as she got older.

Perfection. I love everything about this photo. The whole photo shoot is wonderful
Of course I had to choose these two stunning pictures of Marilyn, I pretty much feel the same way about the previous photo to these two. I found an amazing facebook page of Marilyn called 'Marilyn Monroe in Colour' and there's lots of different photo's of her in every photoshoot she did.
Thank you for reading this blog post on Old Hollywood Star Favourites. I picked a few of my favourite from July/beginning of August even though these pictures were not taken in these months. I will be doing another old Hollywood star favourite at the end of August.
Other places when you can find me
Please feel free to leave comments I'd love to hear from you all!
See you soon.
