Not that I am complaing.
I guess those of you on the scene have seen the rather negative energy that is surrounding burlesque at the moment. So to that vile trolls out there causing it: POKE OFF PIE FACES! Hardly mature I will grant you but if I get one more email telling me how so and so is talking behind my back about me or how such and such bitched about me I will scream.
Right I had better go. Only a short post today. Will post more. By the way check out my new website and let me know what ya'll htink ok.

So please pop over there and let me know what ya'll think.
I am not sure if I will keep this blog up and running as my website has one also though I *may* be able to link the two so the info is posted to both...

Well much has been happening. And I mean MUCH! From my very recent email asking me to lend my image to a new iPhone app (yet undecided on that one personally - more an android girl) to my plans to New York and Canada. Plus my new website is soon to be up and running. I may even have to close this blog and divert you all to my new site. It should be going live rather soon. Want to see a sneaky pic?
So when this site goes live once a few techincal things have been sorted be sure to check it out!
Anyway so I am manic right now. I have sorted myself a small dance/rehearsal studio to use plus decided to rework the rabbit poison act. To be honest the whole 'oh-look-let-me-drink-that-and-i-will-remove-my-costume-thing' is overdoen now and on the words of a lovely Joe Black I am attempting to make the act more comedic with audience interaction that bit more without the need to leap on to their tables...which is something I need to suppress as sometimes I think it can make people see me as a crazy loon and only capable of doing that one style. Talking of styles I am putting together two new routines though admittedly one at a time...a new fan dance to some stunning music that most ladies will recognise the moment they hear it. I have already used it a number of years ago but want to bring the act back out of retirement with a new costume and a fresh attitude. The second routine will take much longer to perfect as the corset alone (another Vintage Lynndy Loo one off creation) has to be perfect so I can work it into the act... Think Mulan and you are almost there but still off the mark!
Right so ontop of all that I have travels to Canada and NYC to arrange.
So off I pop and promise to make more of an effort to keep in touch. For those you cant wait for the blog posts...why not join me on twitter? Click here to add me! I tend to twitter fairly often with added bonus images of tat every now and again.
Vote for me or the other beavies of beauties on the ballot!
The only election that has lipgloss policies on the agenda!

Yorkshire was fantastic and proved to be a great location for me to practise my photography. Whitby proved to be very inspiring. From the ruined abbey, the clifftop graveyard to the crowds of shant singers and goths. Each step I took about the place made me want to whip out my camera (Nikon D90) and capture it all.
The whole place seems to be a crazy mixture of victorian gothic structures to tudor housing and cottages...juxtapositioned by the nasty 70s council tower blocks that almost ruined the landscape with the rolling moors behind. The abbey and the nearby graveyard on the cliff side is wonderful and rather sad. You can see why Bram Stoker set some of his world famous novel Dracula here. The graveyard is full of old extremely ornate grave stones with some sadly too weathered to read. What made it all the more sad was that tour groups were running and climbing over these gaves as though they were mere playthings or obstacles in a local play park. The concept that a few feet below them lay the remains of someones loved one was lost on most of them.
I have posted a few images below for you. Not amazing by any stretch of the imagination but I love them. As always images are copyright of ME! DONT STEAL! Like you would. LOL

what do you make of all these award type poll thingys... does it bother you not bieng nominated and having all of the web canvassing for votes or are you nominated often and have to hassle all your friends to vote for you . . . what do you make of it all?
I have been nominated for one poll and came 29th (though joint) in the top 50 burlesque stars of 2009 by a 21cp poll. To be honest I often feel that polls are won by those that have the most mates though this isnt always the case.
I am alittle dishearten when not placed but I guess it shows how much more work I need to do to get fore front in peoples minds. I will admit that I dont like hasseling people to vote for me and rather just show the competition than 'blackmail' people into voting.
a frog? No...i couldnt catch flies.
I love any one that involves laughing. Alot of the standard poses are lovely but I like to find my own twist on them to suit my personality.
yes! Bloody hell yes! I recent nasty person got karma biting them in the arse. Though I felt awful and offered to help out. FOOL!

Do you think if a performer is willing to undercut you [and you know this for fact] said performer is also willing to undercut others? Do you think people should be made aware of this since it could potentially cost them a paycheck? How would you proceed?
I am not sure how to proceed. Could it be that this performer believed they aren't worth the money you are? Perhaps simply telling them what they are doing in case they are unaware. I personally would not be sure what to do.

I'd stop giving handouts to people just because they left school and can't get a job etc. I'd make them go back to school or volunteer in order to get their benefits. Give them some self pride and give back to those who are helping them.
Do you ever get tired of being the crazy life and soul of the party type? Do you ever switch off and just be normal, without having to be "kooky" or odd? Is the craziness a character you play, or are you really like that all the time?
I am who I am most of the time unless I am grumpy and have to fake my happy a bit. Though the real smiles take over quick enough. I like who I am but yes I do have quieter times as do we all. X
My dear friend and fabulous costume designer Lucy (of Burldoir fame) got married on the Saturday and I was invited along to celebrate. I cried. A lot. The whole 1930 styling of the affair was beautiful though the same can't said for my dancing....well. I blame the bride and Sarah and Ana....and Simon...and everyone else but me! The whole affair was stunning and Lucy and Simon are so well suited! So yummy together!
On the Sunday I popped into Oxford to pooter about the place. If you havent been you really should. I ate lovely icecream by the river and mooched about the science museum. They had a cute steampunk exhibit on created by a local school. I reallly love Oxford as the building are breathtaking creations of engineering.
