New pooch, New performance

Its been a crazy few weeks.

After a LOT of discussion and thinking the Mr and I decided it was time to expand out family and get the new fury friend we've always wanted, a beagle.

We met a wonderful beagle breeder who introduced our new pup Bella. She has an italian kennel name and with me being part italian we decided on the best name that complimented her, Bella, which means beautiful in italian.

She's very hard work, but so much fun and such a fusser. I've wanted a beagle ever since I was very young, so I feel like shes been a long wait. I can't wait for all the fun and years to come with her!

In other news, I have debuted a new act that I've been working hard on for a long time and I'm so glad its done because its so much fun!

Jack in the Box Debut and Loretta Loves...

I debuted my new Jack in the Box acr at Loretta Loves... show in Nottingham at the end of October. It was great fun and has gone down really well, which add to this act being so much fun for me to perform.

I then performed it a few days later in Leicester for November's ElectroTease held at the Basement by the Elegantly beautiful Eliza Delite. Again this was great fun, but I couldnt stay too long as it was a mid week show and I have rather early mornings for work. I fully intend to stay and party the rest of the night away at a future ElectroTease night as it was a great night!

It's also my favourite season, autumn. I love the pretty colours and crisp fresh walks in your wellies, especially now with Bella bouding in the leaves. I also love the cosyness of getting in mu 'jammies' and sipping hot chocolate with marshmellows by the fire.

I'm quite busy this month with performances and other fun things lined up too, which will hopefully make for some interesting posts in the future!

Web space and Glitter!

So, to begin with, I now have my website, which I'm so excited about!

I'm really happy with it, I keep tweaking bits, but its getting there!

I performed at a private party at the weekend, which was so much fun and quite different to a 'regular burlesque' show. I was accompanying the very lovely Eliza DeLite and Talulah Blue in Leicester.

I was a great night with plenty of champagne, lots of glitter and great live ska music.

I'm still finding glitter in places today, which always makes me smile! :)

All New and Shiney!

So this is my first ever blog post as I wanted to see what all this blogging is about and what its like. I love following blogs and reading other about peoples thoughts and updates and thought I would give it a bash as it looks fun.

I suppose I should probably start with my lastest happenings...

Last weekend was great fun! It started when I modelled for Dr Sketchy's Nottingham as one of the models had cancelled last minute. A phone call at 8.40am from Scarlett Daggers who urgently asked if I could step in last minute to model for Dr. Sketchy's Nottingham which she runs with Charlotte Thompson. I jumped in the shower and raced into Nottingham ready to get into my new super sparkly costume. I'd decided to change a costume for my fan dance and worked my way through a few thousand rhinestones, so it was deffinatly a way to showcase my new costume.

A few hours later I was back in Nottingham performing at a new show that showcased that night at the Belgrave rooms. It had a large stage with the best lighting ever. I performed my Classic Striptease - Night Train and my fan dance - Harlem Nocturne and I feel that they were my best performances yet. I loved the venue and the audience was great. I look forward to hopefully shimmying there again soon!
