#pokeMOON: females aged 18-29 look desperately for balls, but not yours

data from SurveyMonkey Intelligence (siliconera.com)

so, you can't go anywhere without seeing someone playing Pokemon Go. with about 90% of players in major cities or urban areas, it is no surprise to see this phenomena take STL by storm. and, guys, you might want to pay attention, because it looks like females aged 18-29 are having more fun finding imaginary balls rather than playing with yours. (see below, it should be noted that Niantic has not released any demographic data from its users, so this data is third-party from SurveyMonkey Intelligence)

as i have downloaded the app myself and began playing, I find myself in the same category as those females a tad bit younger than myself...desperately seeking balls!!! Nadoz Cafe has offered special deals to Pokemon Go players and Caitlin Ford over at Notch is doing a whole series of pokemon-inspired hair colors! personally, i have made it to level 15 and have found that catching imaginary creatures is the perfect companion to my Bear-walking adventures and also makes for a great way to get over that ex that thought you were actually playing with other people's real balls instead of imaginary ones! here's a few pics to peruse and make you laugh. send us your own #pidgeytitty pics so we can post them in our next #pokeMOON update!

started 7.12.16 and have made it to Level 15. i decided to go with Team Instinct only for the reason that one of my friends was on the same team. i really feel that Pokemon Go should team up with some different brands (like my faves, Patagonia or Free People) and offer wardrobe upgrades. i would love for my lady to be wearing an awesome bison hat from Patagonia!

i'm glad it was as great for you as it was for me ;)

sorry Bear, you don't anymore :(

getting in on the #pidgeytitty action myself

even Playmate photographer, Michael Abrams, got some #pidgeytitty (eevee-style) last time he visited from NYC

found this male Nidoran in the lobby of my apartment. i guess these are the only pokemon with gender? i'm really interested in the mating patterns of this particular species...haha.

Bear still doesn't know what to think about these damn pidgeys!!!

i'm still trying to figure out if this is a pokestop over near South Grand...

Forest Park has been a fun place for Bear to explore and find tons of towers and gyms and wild pokemon running about...

we always catch about 4-5 pokemon on our short little 10 minute walks to Forest Park.

i caught this little pidgey while i was laying out at #jerryspool

local rocker and model, Stacey Rios, doesn't play pokemon herself but she doesn't mind cuddling up next to a weedle every now and again...

...or a pidgey...

even local hair guru, Caitlin Ford (@caitlinfordhair) from Notch STL, has caught the pokemon bug going around and you can constantly catch her posting little updates on social media and she even just did a model call for pokemon-inspired hair colors...

#MOONCULTMEETUP#1: Sweet Emotion Boudoir Photography

by June Ann D'Angelo

Laura Heying of Weird Cult(ure) [www.weirdcult.com] and I decided that we wanted to bring our resources together to host quarterly events for the blogger community under the mash-up title of Mooncult Meetup! Our first one was so much fun. We invited local bloggers over to my house to meet Michael Abrams of Sweet Emotion Boudoir Photography and enjoy some delicious sweet treats from Piccione Bakery on Delmar and some wine! After a few introductions and a fun chat session about what a boudoir shoot entails and pricing, the ladies had their hair and makeup touched up by St. Louis's own internationally published HMUA Kristen Parks who has teamed up to be the go-to HMUA for Sweet Emotion in the Lou! Next, it was...LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!!! See a fun pic from the night below and check out photos from the blogs represented, Laura Heying from Weird Cult(ure) and Carmen Curtis Boeser of The Ruby Zipper!

I know Michael, because he is one of the big up-and-coming glamour photographers in the industry. I actually did a shoot with him a few days after this event that we will be submitting internationally (and I've seen a sneak peek...and they are amazing)! It just so happens that, although Michael lives in NYC, he travels frequently to visit family back in St. Louis and has decided to share his successful and affordable boudoir photography business with the MidWest. If you are going to have sexy pictures taken of yourself, wouldn't you want the person taking them to have experience being published by international Playboys, Maxim, FHM and Esquire? There is not doubt you will look incredible and still look like YOU!!! This is not glamour shots...this is YOUR shot! Not only does his Sweet Emotions Boudoir Photography offer amazing boudoir and supermodel experiences, you can also get your bridal and maternity pictures as well. Michael is incredibly flexible and affordable and is definitely the person to get in touch with if this is always something you have wanted to do.
