Speechless

This weekend did not turn out AT ALL as I had expected. As all is said in the article where we,  "The Toulouse 8" (thank you Tigger! for this <3 ), explain the situation I do want to thank everyone who has sent me and the others messages of support.

Read our open letter here.

Springtime!

The last couple of weeks have been pretty crazy. Thank you to Lili Mirezmoi for having me perform at her Sassy Cabaret in Brussels the other week, to John-Paul Bichard for taking some amazing photos and to everyone at the burlesque brunch <3

Last weekend was the 10th Helsinki Burlesque Festival and as I really have no words to describe the whole thing (I´ll do a proper post later) I want to thank Bettie & Frank for making the magic happen and for having me as a part of the whole thing.
Thee Dizzy Daisies premiered our new Ice fairies-number and there are so many people and acts that made my head spin I really have to get back to this later.

...because tomorrow at 4am I´m off to perform three nights at the Toulouse Burlesque Festival, - yeah that´s France! I looked at the weather and it´s +20 and sun -can´t wait!

Hope to see you in Toulouse, folks! Be safe!

Burlesque Blossoms

Tonight is the annual "newbie night" - Burlesque Blossoms! I will be there rooting for everyone, there might be some tickets left.
More info here!

I still remember how terrified and excited I was at my own Newcomer´s Night in 2010 :)
Good luck everyone, you´re sparkling miracles already <3

P.S remember to BREATHE!

Body Love

Happy New Year 2017!

Let´s hope it´ll be all that and a bag of chips! Listen, apart from hopefully teaching a Shimmering High Heels-burlesque workshop in Turku on January 28th I also have the immense pleasure of performing in Tampere the same evening!

Olivia Rouge did it again: she´s putting me on stage with some AMAZING performers. I´ve been hoping for The Return Of Rudie Ruthless *for ages* and here it IS: he will be here! Stella Polaire, Nana Violet, Lady Laverna, , Mimi de FrouFrou, Olivia herself AND the amazing Rubyyy Jones from the UK!
I met this woman in Vienna at the first ever Vienna Boylesque Festival and let me tell you: she is quite something <3
Can´t WAIT to see her again!!!

You know the drill: get tix. It will probably sell out.
