Sew-o-matic!

Well nothing new here exactly.. Just some sewing and crafting and being creative. Oh and horrobul thing to look at since I'm spending all my time home alone, so no outfit photos any time soon!

This is basically what my life is about at the moment:


Work table full of crap! (ps. see a glimpse of my new tassels oh and panties for my show!)

My outfit for the evening, not the performance costume though.

And mostly my days have been full of this as well:


And since I got some souveniers from my mom and dad when they visited Tallin,
I'm looking forward for some nice occasions to enjoy these babies


Not the tasavalta though..


On the other news I received photos from a photoshoot with
LouLou D'vil and Cherrie A. Dorable, taken by David England.

I'm quite pleased!






I could post some group photos but I'm not sure if the
girls would like it. Maybe later!

The voting has started!


Now I need everybody's help for this one!
(says the tourist above)

The voting for the London Burlesque Festival has begun
and as many of you already know, I would just love love love to perform there,
after all I'm a London gal in my heart!

So what you can do to me is go to this website Olivia Rouge,
press the "SEND FEEDBACK" button and fill in the form (put me in to the
international performer list). Then send it to this address: info@londonburlesquefest.com


There is time until the 5.th of February so not much..
Oh and if you are having trouble figuring out the other international performers,
I have some hints (LouLou D'vil, Sugar Kane and Miss Anne Thropy).
Buddies of mine!

So with that said, I hope you will get some footage of me
doing my thing to the british!

Busy as a bzzz bee!

Oh yes ladies (and gentlemen?). Lately my life has been like living on a rollercoaster.
I have managed to get some of my Olivia Rouge Shop products for sale on couple of stores in two different cities in Finland. I'm not telling yet which ones though because there is still too much work to do before you can go and check them out! So yes my days have mostly been about sewing and designing new collection for summer.

Then all this burlesque stuff is happening. There are plenty of amazing happenings this spring where I'm performing with some top of the line performers!

First there is the Helsinki Burlesque Festival,
which is sold out (not a surprise thinking of what happened last year)



Next event is Burlesque Star Revue

(myspace-page coming later!)




Then there is a Glam & Glitter happening on Tampere

There is no further info about this one but I'll keep you posted!


And for now last but defenately not least we are having the Big Band & Burlesque
(website also coming later!)



And if I get really lucky I might be performing at the London Burlesque Festival
and it would be my first performance outside Finland, how cool would that be!

So in order for me to get there, I might need your and hopefully all of your friends help by voting for me on the 25th of this month at a website. I will send you the adress to the website once it is finished! But remember, this sunday is THE day!
I'm getting very excited!


So plenty to do and a lot to be nervous about!

But one thing to keep me sane is the plan of a new tattoo. I have finally decided who is going to make it for me and what it would be like. I'm not telling you all the juicy details but here's some idea:





I think that is all for now. I hope you are having a lovely week!

Monday oh Monday

It has been quite a busy week and for that, not so much blogging.
I have mostly been doing things that have lots to do with burlesque
Read: photoshoot, outfits, designing.

And it has been a jolly good time.

I also made a new friend this week:



They are something that I have been searhing for!

20€ (- staff discount) from Citymarket.


Yesteday I cleaned my sewing corner (yes it literally is a corner) and got the
inspiration to do some new things:


Kitty brooches!


I think the girls thought they have found their long lost friends.. Ha!


Later this week I might add some photos of the photoshoot and do
a huge post of all the events I'm performing in!

Be aware!

So yes darlings it has happened!

Olivia Rouge Shop has been updated so go and do some serious shopping!

As some of you may notice, I had the privilege of having one of the most
gorgeus and stylish person as my model. Ulrika from Freelancer's Fashionblog!

In the meantime, I'm about to go and continue my new lifestyle as
a lovely houswife who actually is trying to learn how to cook
something both good and healthy.

And I am starting off with some receipes from Voisilmäpeliä.


And then I have some shopping to do today.. and maybe some work at home.. or not.

There is a big possibility of that!

Today has been about updating my website and making some pie and stuff.

His voice makes me feel like doing things I'm not supposed to! Hot hot hot..
