In my opinion these photos are not good, nor has good colors or nice bokeh at all. I also think that they are misunderstanding and inappropriate use of 35mm FOV except this one:

IMHO again, 35mm FOV is not for taking close portraits with blurred backgrounds. The bokeh is not nice, rather disturbing for my eyes, and it is a consequence of the wide FOV. And are these pictures really well composed? Well... Are they composed at all? They seems to me like snapshots.

People think if they take pictures with blurred background they take good pictures but they don't. I suggest you to take more pictures like the one I referred above, this is where the 35mm shines.
