Blog... Verified...

Well the weather has been rather marvellous this week, hasn't it?! All I've wanted to do is sit in the sunshine and drink cider and cocktails, when instead I've... sat in the sun and drank cider and cocktails... Well; that worked out well didn't it!


The week began with a trip to Hagen and Hyde in Balham for Chastity Belt's pub quiz; we've been before and always fail miserably, but it's a fun night with friends and wine, and that's what matters most, right?!

With Joe Morose, Taz Zebrowski, Loz Stevenson and Emma Hook!

Then the weekend kicked into gear with two awesome shows; first at Proud Cabaret in the sweltering heat! It all got very cozy, and slightly sweaty, backstage!

Then I dashed across town to my partners-in-crime for Rock The Kaff Bar in Brixton! Much fun, and wine, was had by all!

After the show, we hied ourselves to Ben Elder's frat/birthday party where we were treated to the sight of naked skinny dipping, a beer bong and more booze (honestly I think my blood is basically beer at this point!)

Frat Party!! Well played...

Then I rounded off the week with a lovely evening with some of my favourite people, drinking cocktails at Balans in Soho, and meeting Hollie Deller's fiancee! It was lovely to catch up with the gorgeous Jasz Vegas (verified) and spend time with a bunch of fabulous folk.

Doing It In Style

Two very, very busy weeks behind me! And I've had an absolute ball...

First off, I joined the fabulous House of Burlesque, for the Kiss Me Deadly catwalk show (so much gorgeous underwear!), at The Tabernacle in Notting Hill. A beautiful venue, and lots of lovely ladies - what more could I ask for?!

Well the following week I was back with them again for their regular show 'Banged Up' at Madame Jojo's in Soho, which I adored; so funny, sexy and such fun!

The inimitable Lolo Brow!

Aah, this hat brought back memories: Circus Burlesque 2010, Edinburgh Fringe!

I travelled up to Sheffield and back for the Alternative and Burlesque Fair, hosted by Heresy 'N' Heels - it is a great event; stalls, shows, exhibitions - the works! It's just a shame I always seem to go to one of them when I have no money! Although maybe that's a good thing as I'd certainly have no money *left* afterwards - so many beautiful things! It was a fun afternoon and I was very well looked after by Lorraine and Jo, and the rest of the team, which certainly made me feel better after the most nightmarish morning of travel follies!

Afterwards I wound my way back to London to round off the fortnight with a show at Proud Cabaret alongside gorgeous ladies Missy Fatale and Slinky Sparkles, and the equally gorgeous gentleman Michael Standen - unfortunately my phone battery died and I didn't get any mirror pictures, but I did grab a couple of selfies with Joe Morose... who is also gorgeous, obviously...


*Much* needed!

I have so much leopard print in my life. #sorrynotsorry

Alongside shows, I had a fun night out with friends, drinking cocktails and champagne - very glamorous...

All the drinks!

I am one sleepy showgirl! Plus I think I caught a bit of a chill from travelling around in the unseasonal cold without sensible shoes or a coat. So it's my own fault really and I'm going to go and console myself with wine...
