After years of describing who I am & what I do, I had to boil it
down to "Professional Girlfriend". I hope you'll consider this
site a warm and cozy couch and let me share all of the tips,
tricks, & tools that I have with you.
Love Bobbie, #progirl
It’s tough enough having lady issues, from infertility and PCOS to menopause and PMS. The silver lining is that supportive sisterhoods exist all over the internet in the form of message boards. The downside, however, is that you have to … Continue readingShare this+

Call it cliché, but whenever I get a gift for a close girlfriend, I always gravitate toward those that skew sentimental. And until someone invents a way to bottle and sell love, I will continue to seek these special finds. Melinda Maria’s Goddess collection is one of these discoveries. As the name indicates, the collection of gold and silver charm bracelets and necklaces combine semi precious stones and crystals with your choice of gold or silver, and each features a different “goddess-like” trait – strength, power, prosperity, sisterhood, love, peace, or good fortune. The jewelry is essentially a wearable way to wrap a loved one in well wishes, while also staying stylish.
I’ve seen a lot of purse-sized cosmetics come out over the years. And while they are all designed to be convenient for the on-the-go gal, most of them are literally just smaller versions of their larger counterparts – great for saving space, but not necessarily buzzworthy. BellaPierre recently raised the “small” stakes when they sent their On The Go Trio to my office. At first completely unassuming, this small cosmetic case came in a box approximately the size of a normal nail polish. Upon opening, however, there are three separate compartments to hold mini tubes of liquid eyeliner, mascara, and clear lip-gloss. Definitely discrete, but once you know what’s inside, the clever design makes it hard to put down. Great idea for a girlfriend gift or stocking stuffer. xx
Everyone talks about what to wear to a party, a job interview, a date, but what about finding a presentable pair of pajamas to rock around the house? Many of us end up home for the holidays and whether you’re feeling anxious about staying with the in-laws or bashful around out-of-town guests, you deserve sleepwear that you can feel comfortable in around company. Only Hearts, a NY-based brand you may know for their lingerie line, is offering up some seriously fashion-forward sleepwear this season in a variety of rich colors and fun heart prints. Comfy, cute, and most importantly covered, PJs like these give you one less thing to worry about pre-coffee.
A few of my favorites include a feminine (but not flashy) robe, nightshirts in supima cotton, girly sweats in modal, and a menswear inspired pajama set in organic cotton (a great gift idea too!).

Everyone knows buying holiday presents can be beyond stressful…so I’m aiming to help you get it done early and get it done right Below are the links to everything I shared in this morning’s #BobbiesBuzz segment (above) on the TODAY Show. Stay tuned to Bobbie.com as well (now through the end of December) for more easy, on-point gift ideas. xx
It’s tough enough having lady issues, from infertility and PCOS to menopause and PMS. The silver lining is that supportive sisterhoods exist all over the internet in the form of message boards. The downside, however, is that you have to basically learn a new language to understand what anyone’s talking about. For instance, AF stands for “aunt flow,” and POAS is “Pee on a Stick.” Bottom line, there’s a ton of great info out there, and I want to help everyone access it, so click here for: PRO GIRL’S GUIDE TO FERTILITY TERMS DECODED.
Few childhood favorites conjure the mental imagery and instant smirk provided by our fondness for Underoos. So imagine my surprise, that others were surprised, that Hot Topic’s recent release of adult-sized superhero sets you can secretly wear underneath your 9-5 armor would sell out. Frankly, this fact restores my faith in humanity. Go on and gift them to those on your holiday list who could use a little slide-down-the-hall-in-your-
If you’re not familiar with the name Alexis Bittar, you’ve probably seen his design aesthetic somewhere. His sculpted pieces are modern and glam, yet airy and ethereal at the same time. This unique combination is not only striking, but a signature accent sought after by a legion of notable fans including First Lady Michelle Obama. Bittar has now crossed over into another realm of beauty with a new collection of drool-worthy, collectable brushes for Sephora. Although the females on your holiday list will lust for them, the impressive items options also make a great gift for yourself too (trust me, the bejeweled mirror will make you feel like a glamazon every time you take it out of your purse $42-$175, sephora.com

Few fashion items can be as confusing as the cape. While I’m definitely a fan, the way they are styled sometimes can make them seem a bit unrealistic for everyday.

Spoiler: It’s all about balancing the textures and silhouettes to keep your look sleek and chic.

Want a chic manicure but don’t have hours to spend on nail art? I hear ya. Here’s a few of my favorite spins on monochromatic nails, a go-to during your busy week.
This week I wanted to try something different, a spin on the all white manicure (pictured here) which I can’t stop looking at. We paired OPI’s Funny Bunny over a basic white polish, Blanc by Essie, and it created a marshmallow effect that softened the bright white. I love how the top coat made the white more creamy and feminine.
I’m also inspired by the monochromatic french manicures — a gloss base and matte tips, (one of the girls in the office had this in black and we all raved over it). I’m thinking about trying the trend in navy next. The chalkboard finish is easy to achieve. Just add a swipe or two of OPI’s clear matte top coat over the color of your choice and your done.
Protip! Choose neutral colors and your monochromatic nail twist will go with almost any outfit.
Sephora has thought up another genius beauty tool. Disposable mascara wands in an assortment of unique shapes — (spiky ball, comb style, feathered tip, and a graduated volumizer). Pair your perfect brush with your favorite formula to plump up your lashes.
They are hygienic too! After each use, just toss the wand away and go about your day.
For $7 you get 12 applicator brushes:
-3 Lengthening disposable wands
-3 Volumizing disposable wands
-3 Curling disposable wands
-3 Defining disposable wands

I recently met a talented artist named TamTam at the Bridges of Understanding event here in NY honoring designer Reem Acra—. I wanted to help spread the love for her empowering songs by sharing her latest video, Gender Game, above.
My favorite part? In a world full of selfies and self promotion, the Gender Game video makes a profound statement by NOT revealing TamTam’s face until the very end. Instead the music first draws you in, and allows the beauty of her message to shine beyond what’s on the surface. Brilliant and inspiring.
