At the end of the year..

I have made a New Year's Resolution and it has something to do with this blog, well actually a lot. Since my promise for next year is to try and update this blog much more often and make some more interesting entries about my style, life and things that inspire me.

And now before I get started, I would like to know is there anything that you would like me to make an entry of? Just leave a comment on my box and we'll see what I can do about it.

I have been very busy lately and also kinda down for various of reasons. One of the biggest reasons for my new year's resolution is the fact that my time at my normal job has come to it's end. They are "letting me go" (read: telling me that my contract won't be continued after New Year) so in other words I'm on my own now and have to start working with my trademark as well as with burlesque a whole lot more, since I'm not even trying to apply to any other jobs.. And because of all this fuss I may have more time and energy to make entries about fabulous things! And I have to wear nice clothes and hair much more often to make myself look more like me rather than some gal in a saleswoman uniform. And it also gives a nice impression of me as a businesswoman representing my trademark.

Well enough with this la-didaa! Let's move on to something much more fabulous: CHRISTMAS PRESENTS! It seems that I have been a very, I mean very good girl during the past year.. or at least that is what my bunny seems to think;

Well first of all, the thing I shoot these photos with


How can you tell, you have chosen a right man to be with? He buys you shoes!


And not just any shoes.. one of those shoes in the dark blurry picture are Minna Parikka's Sophy-shoes... mmmmm!

The other "how to tell you are with the perfect guy"- thing is that he buys you books with hot chicks almost naked in them! (Well the Immodesty Blaize book is a Novel, but a dirty one!) And he also buys you one of your favourite perfumes <3>



(Have some sympathy on me, I still don't know how the use the camera so excuse me for the crappy photos..)



I also might have the best big sister in the world who goes out to flea markets and does some splendid vintage-finds for me


And last but definately not least I got this from my dad. It will join the rest of my rocking horses and carousel horses, since I am obsessed about them. And it has sparkles in it!



So that is just some of what I got and I am truly grateful of all the fantastic gifts!

But now I think I could say Happy New Year everyone and I'll see you next year, hopefully a whole lot more often!

EVENTS YOU CANNOT MISS!

Hello Darlings!

Right now I'm about to inform you about some fabulous events where you can spot the Tease Queens shakin' their booties and such!



First, the little christmas party at Laterna, Tampere, on 28th of November is something you shall not miss. That night is the opening night for our brand new act, "Boudoir" that we have been planning for quite a while and I have been working my ass off making the costumes. Here is a little preview of what you might expect (not the clothes though, they will be something even more fabulous and sparkly!). You can buy tickets from our Vaudeville Boutique ( YES THE WEBSITE IS NOW OPEN!!!!)


We also have another event on December where we are performing and it is held at Jack the Rooster, which is an awesome rock bar in the heart of Tampere. The event is on 11th of December and you should be there too!

And there is also happening something very exciting next February.. THE QUEENS OF TEASE TOUR WITH KITTEN DEVILLE! I will put some more info about it later to you guys :)

Halloween


My halloween as Molly Monster was excellent, making a burlesque show that we wanted to call grotesque with Miss Ruth Less (also known as Cherrie A. Dorable). And yes it was a blast. Why wouldn't it? Vampires, zombies and boobies? What more could you ask!

Sunday

What perfect sundays are made from?

Mellow songs





And some great movies



With really pretty actresses and fashion


Ann Rutherford
Mary Beth Huhghes


Lynn Bari


So I got really inspired after that flick. But unfortunately what makes this sunday not so perfect, is the fact that I have gotten the flu so I'm just sitting around looking ugly and I can't really do anything nice. AND I couldn't go to the Helsinki Vintage today with Vaudeville Boutique to do some selling (and maybe buying). Well maybe next time..


On Wednesday I'm off to Switzerland to see my sister and her hubby AND their 2 month old baby boy Rico, whose godmother I am! He has his baptism and I haven't even seen the kid yet!

So maybe my next post will be after the trip, hopefully with plenty of photos of new things I have bought!

Oh and don't forget that we are also part of next weekends Designtori and we will be selling our sweet things over there as well.

News, news, fantastic news!


I know, i know, it has been way too long and I am quite ashamed to even write anything here anymore.. BUT you might be very interested about the news I am about to give to you.

Firs of all, I don't remember if wheter I have been blabbering and whining about a workspace and the fact of lacking one. Well things are looking way brighter these days, since me and two absolutely fabulous people called Mimi de Frou Frou and Lafayette Lestrange put our heads together and we are about to open the most fabulous and glamorousiest boutique in Tampere, and well maybe in the entire world! At least we think so. You might have a clue that what kind of boutique it will be? Well you guessed it right, it has a burlesqueish vibe to it, but I wouldn't call it "a burlesque shop". We bring many great designers products (which i will inform you a bit later) under the same roof and yours truly finally has her on little atelier in the upstairs of this boutique. I will post some photos later, but until that you can admire our stunning logo above. The shop will open on 16th of September in this location: Rautatienkatu 26, Tampere.

You are very welcome!


On the other news, another fabulous burlesque party is about to happen!

For the first time in a looooong long time I have the chance to be in a burlesque
party and be there as an audience only! So I don't have to perform this time.
I do love to perform, don't get me wrong, but it's nice at times to just hang out
with some lovely people on the actual party rather than backstage and wait for your turn.

So has kinda the idea of what I was planning on wearing..

although mine is going to have a huge bustle on the back as well and
well just lots of stuff all over the place. And maybe I'll have a small horse attached to my bag or something cute. Don't know yet and honestly I don't even have the time to make myself anything like that, but we'll see!

I think that is enough for today. Hopefully I have the chance to take some photos of the boutique as soon as possible so you will get a glimpse of what's going on!

The more professional entry!




New products on Olivia Rouge Shop!

Oh yes darlings, I have added some new stuff to the Olivia Rouge website. Mostly accessories such as that one above.

There are also some discounted items on the SALE-section, make sure you check them out as well!

During the late summer / early fall, there might be some great big news I can tell you people, about a place where my stuff might be sold..but now it's a little bit too early! But I can tell you that there will be more lovely clothes coming up during Fall, so stay tuned and shop til you drop!

Olivia Rouge Shop

I will be adding more stuff to Etsy.com as well, hopefully already today!




On the more burlesque news..

I have some excellent performances coming up such as:




And other ones coming up later! Everyone who lives in tampere or migh want to come to the Ship Ahoy! -party, I strongly recommend you do. There will be some brand new acts and the price of the ticket is such a bargain!

My last few weeks have been like this...

Before Birthday

So it has been a long time once again. I just decided to make quick entry about my three favourite things at the moment. Some of them are a bit older friends of mine than the other.

Shoes from Nelly.com - 20€


Unicorn earrings made out of plastic bought from Supermukava
but the designer is TitiMadam.

I absolutely love those.


And least but not last, something I found today and decided to make my
birhtday skirt out of it:

Cupcake fabric.
I love cupcakes, huh? No you're kidding?

So yes only a couple of days and I have my birthday party,
it won't be anything huge but hopefully some people will turn up.

I'm planning on making cupcakes for people instead of a huge cake.

Maybe you will get some photos afterwards!

And then I shall drink some champagne.


Just the way I like it!

Everybody, remember next weekend is time for the lovely Ofelia Second Hand Market for the second time! I will be there selling my products and there will also be a fashion show with some of my garments. There will be plenty of things that you can't find from my website, so make sure you come and stop by if you are around.

In the evening there will be a happening called Ofelia in Wonderland, where I will be a part of a charity auction with the amazing Lola Vanilla. So come and make some auctions on the fabulous garments that I will be wearing.. and taking off as they are being auctioned. Talk about a burlesque auction!


In other news we are having some fun gigs with the Tease Queens this summer. The first one to come up is at the legendary Provinssirock in Seinäjoki at 13th of June. And we are actually performing on our own, not with a band or anything. So coolness! I'm just a little sad that we will miss the gig of Raised Fist since they play at the same time that we are performing. But maybe Placebo and Volbeat will do the trick for me anyway ;)

Some of the other gigs include:

- Psychorama - psychobilly & burlesque festival 2009, 10th of July @ Tavastia
- Ship Ahoy! -party at a Mustalahti Harbour, Tampere. There will be plenty of pirates, seamen and pretty girls doing som burlesque of course!


I also got some nice photos taken a couple weeks back






Well that's all for now, back to work and hopefully I have time to update this blog a little more often some time soonish..
