Countdown to Christmas

True to form, December has been a very busy month!

Still found time to put the Christmas tree up though!

It was strange coming back to Burlesque after such a long time away - I wasn't even sure I'd remember how to do it! I mean, sure, I know how to take my bra off, I still do it most days; but in time to music, one handed, holding a pair of feather fans, while people watch... hmmm...

But, while much has changed (and maybe that's a subject for another blog?), some things haven't changed, and one of those things is how welcoming the cabaret world is. I've had Facebook messages from people welcoming me back, and glitter-covered hugs at backstage reunions; I've reconnected with some of the best people on the planet, and met new (to me) performers who are simply wonderful.

I have to admit I was a bit scared to come back; would anyone remember me? Would I get booked? Will audiences tastes have changed and no one would like me? But I needn't have worried, and now I wonder why I left it so long! I had my reasons for stepping away, and I have my reasons for coming back. But I also had reasons why I dithered for a time while I considered it, and I'm so glad I made the decision.

Back in the land of London Cabaret

So, here's to a fabulous Christmas, a wonderful New Year, and a packed 2018.

Bring on the bubbly wine!

This weekend has been another lovely one - back at my old playground Proud City.

Thursday Night Proud Cabaret

The audience on Thursday were small but perfectly formed, and on Saturday the entire venue was full to the brim of folk having a wonderful time - as did I!

It's so nice to see familiar faces, and meet new (to me) performers, and I loved Deux Ailes act on Saturday night!

It's like I've never been away!

She's Back...

I'm back, beauties!

It's been two and a half years since I hung up my tassels - though it's been a lot longer than that since I last posted a blog here.

But, I started to miss performing, so I decided that it was time for me to pop on my heels and make my way back to the stage; and what lovelier place to come back to than Proud Cabaret in Brighton.

I have to say I was actually terrified (though it was Halloween so rather apt!) I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to perform any more!

But, it went well, I think... At least I didn't fall over, and everything came off when it was supposed (and stayed on where it was supposed to!) so that's a win in my book.

Nervous! Waiting to go on stage...

Backstage I had the gorgeous ladies Cherry DeVille and Violet Blaze to look after me, and the beautiful GM Carmen was on hand to ply me with gin and give me hugs!


So, I have a few more shows before the end of the year, which is exciting, and I'm taking bookings for the rest of 2017 and beyond... mostly I'm so looking forward to glitter-covered reunions with some of the best people!

Tis The Season

I've had a lovely couple of weeks, both in real life and in Cabaret land.

Shows have included another Kaff Bar, which was typically mental!

The Kim Kardashian/Fat Bottomed Girls Game!

Love this shot of  Ruby Deshabille, snapped from behind the curtain.

Another Kaff Bar, another breakdown! This time it was the spark plugs... or something. I don't know.

I've been back at Proud Cabaret City and Brighton with a whole host of lovelies...

Selfie with the gorgeous Elsie Diamond!

In real life, I had a wonderful couple of days with my grandparents: we took them to The Tower Of London and Hampton Court Palace for their wedding anniversary. It was lovely to spend time with them as I don't see them as often as I would like.

Theatre Week

I've been gallivanting around all week to various theatre shows and it's been fabulous!

I was excited to go and watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show in the glorious surroundings of The Royal Albert Hall, and had a bonkers fun evening!


At The Rocky Horror Picture Show with Emma!

Ice Skaters at The Natural History Museum on the way home

The next night I had a date night and we went to watch an interesting show called The Card Shark which was like a cross between a magic show, a gambling den and a lecture from a nutty professor!

The Card Shark Show at The Courthouse Hotel

My show this weekend was at the beautiful Proud Cabaret Brighton - it's such a gorgeous venue and the audiences are always lovely so it made up for the hellish journey there and the replacement rail buses on the way home!

I've been having a lovely lazy Sunday relaxing and reading for my university course. I have another exciting week ahead so I'm recharging my batteries in preparation!

What? This is how I recharge!

Phoning It In With Photos

Crikey where does the time go?!

Well I'd better get on it: Kaff Bar has been epic with a couple of new shows including 'Now That's What I Call Cabaret' and 'The Rocky Horror Kaff Bar!'

Ruby Deshabille's Banana Storage System...

Backstage! With Chastity Belt, Joe Morose, Ruby Deshabille and Taz Zebrowski!

Heeeeeere's Joey!

Oh yeah, and we blew a tyre on the way home! I forgot about that! (Joe Morose being all manly there!)

As Columbia for Halloween Rocky Horror!

Oh and Chastity dragged Ronnie up on stage for the finale!

I've been at Proud Cabaret a couple of times as well...

Mirror Pictures! With Sophia St. Villier, Slinky Sparkles and Helen Orford! ** With Leah Debrincat, Mat Ricardo and Ruby Deshabille!

Also this month I've had a couple of nice days/nights out...

Busmans Holiday with Taz Zebrowski to watch Chastity Belt perform in a Cabaret show

Day out at London Zoo! My first visit there! I would have added more photographs but Zebrowski Photography has been very busy recently and not got round to taking them off the camera yet!

Poppies at night at the Tower Of London

And days in as well, obviously.

This was literally the best day ever...

In 'real life' news, work is going well, studies are going well, plans are coming together and I'm rather satisfied right now! It's a wonderful feeling!
