Easy living




So my weekend was just filled with these things: food, cats and relaxing. That's about it.









psst. I love the fact that the kitties are also in love with the new sofa set, my first fear was that they will pee all over it but nope, the arm chairs are their new lovers.

No plans for the weekend? Read below and think again!

So now it is time to give you some great hints on what to do next weekend if you are around Tampere area.

First of all, me and my gals from Tease Queens have a gig on Friday, 1st of October at Yo-Talo. There will be some tail shakin' and some swinging hot music played by excellent dj:s : John Wayne and Mr. Willy! I know I need to leave my corset at home and put some dancing shoes on since the night will be almost a work out with all the jiggle and wiggle!

For more info about the event go to: Facebook



And when you have gotten yourself together after the night of fun at Yo-Talo, you should come and see a movie called On Tour (Tournée) which is a movie about burlesque and most of the cast are fellow burlesque performers from USA, like Dirty Martini, Kitten on The Keys and Julie Atlas Muz! So how could this film not be something that you have to watch? I have no idea!


Part of the cast, photo google

Anyway the film is played in the movie theater Niagara on Sat. 2nd of October at 8:45 p.m! I will be there, you should come too!

I'm so lucky!

Well there is this thing that just made my whole day soooo much more perfect, actually it did my whole week just soo much more perfect. Just look at what I found from a local flea market:



And the price? 100€ for all three. It was love at first sight and might be love forever. I'm getting those into our home hopefully in the beginning of next week. AAGH I CAN'T WAIT!

Other than that my weekend will include: sauna at my parents, some wine with my mom, dinner and a movie with my mr. on saturday, pilates and a movie at home on sunday. So no gigs this weekend! I'm actually very pleased since there is nothing more that I would like to do than spent the whole weekend at home or at least here in Tampere doing all kind of nice things. Ahhh. And I won't go to my atelier either this weekend, which is really rare.. so I'm going to enjoy and enjoy and enjoy a little bit more of this weekend off!

Hope you will have a good weekend ahead of you as well!

Damdida!



I'ts a burlesque beer with feathers!

So yes the party is now over and it was quite nice, unlike last time, this time I could actually remember everything.. wonder why. The acts were all quite fab, but I didn't like the fact that after the last performance "normal" crowd started to pour in and suddenly the burlesque people (at least me and friends) felt like the "weirdos" even though it was "our" party! Especially when the people were staring and laughing at all the costumes that people had put on. So the end of the evening was quite blah for me, but then I went home and slept well and managed to go into my first lesson of pilates on Sunday. So it was a success anyway!

So I didn't take that many photos and the ones I took were so horrobul that why post them.. Anyway here is some footage and you can see our outfits!



Mine and Lily's outfits for the evening. She won the costume contest
and as you can see, she well deserved it!



That snake was soooooo big... gosh



Lili Sariola



One of the two hostesses of the evening, she was like a fruit bowl come to life! Yammeee! And the best part: she had onions hangin from her derriere! Hilarious!



BUT WE HAD FUN AS YOU CAN SEE!

Busy weekend full of burlesque!




This weekend is quite filled with burlesque, tonight I'm performing with my gals at Love Hotel, Tampere. It's somekind of afterparty for Fashion Days that are held here in Tampere and in Jyväskylä. Anyway it's nice to be performing in Tampere again! Hometown oh hometown! And I will do my flamenco number again for the second time and I'm hoping it goes a bit more well than in Ship Ahoy!

Then tomorrow it's time for the 3rd Circus meets Burlesque Festival. I'm not performing but my gal LouLou is and I just like to go there and have a nice evening of real burlesque party where I don't have to perform. My inspiration for the outfit is this:



I'm thinking that I'm more of an tight rope walker than a ballerina tomorrow and my outfit will be completely black (and nothing similiar to that one above other than the tutu..). I just need to figure out my hat somehow, or something to put in my head. Anyway a huge tutu that I'm not going to be able to wear in a bus... ha! But hopefully I'll remember to post some pictures of the outfit and the atmosphere later!

Have a lovely weekend!

Award!

I got this award from a lovely lady that has a blog by the name of Good Rockin' Baby. Enjoy my not so obvious favourite things!



The rules:
1. Post who gave you this award.
2. State ten things you like.
3. Give this award to 10 other bloggers and notify them with a comment.


10 things I like in a totally random order:

1. Carousel horses / Rockin horses



That is a small collection of my horses at the moment. I buy things that have carousel or rockin horses on them from time to time, but I'm not completely obsessed about this thing. I think they are the cutest thing even though I'm not really a fan of the actual real horses. And later I might have something like that decorating my skin as well, can't wait!

2. Frank Sinatra (swing music)



The first artist I started to listen when I got inspired by the whole 20's to 50's era and the style. I know he is a little obvious to be mentioned in this category but I find him to be a true legend and his songs are the ones I have been listening to the most from this era. i am also very proud that I have been performing in Las Vegas on the same stage as Sinatra along with Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr did all those years ago. To me it was a great big deal and I won't forget it.

3. Christmas



I have always been a christmas person and few yers back I took it to the extreme and started to wait for christmas on August and listen to christmas songs when I was home alone and made some presents for people. Well nowadays I don't have the time to be that enthusiast about Christmas but it does have a warm place in my heart. Usually the actual Christmas eve is quite normal, but I think it's the whole waiting for it and the atmosphere all and all. I do make all the Christmas cards myself still and try to make as many of the presents I give to people myself as well. Some of my friends might say that my Christmas-crazyness is the one thing that they would take away if they could!

4. Tea



I've never drank coffee. I have tasted it when I was a kid but after that never drank it or had the urge to do so. So here is my start of the morning, my favourite tea mug from Iittala and two of my favourite tea flavours. Mmm!

5. London



My favourite city of all the cities I've been to in the world. This is a place where I would move into if I had the chance. I've visited London 4 (or 5?) times now and I just can't get enough of it. It's love with a big L.


6. Cupcakes



Ok this one you might have guessed already if you think of my few other posts like this and this. Well anyway I love the way the cupcakes look and I love the way they taste and I love to be one on my first real Burlesque show, Cupcake Cutie. Those lovely sparkly cupcakes are actually christmas decorations from Stockmann, but I keep them on my kitchen all year round. They are so darn cute!

7. Leopard Print



Yes I am now very aware that I am completely insane. Actually when I was collecting these things that I have around my house that have leopard print on it and saw how retarded they look all together I just couldn't do anything but say to myself out loud that I have now lost it. Anyway, it was a few years back when I swore that I would never wear any animal prints.. and look what happened? I'm also planning on tattooing some of that print on myself, but we'll see..

oh and there are plenty of stuff missing from that photo like my 7 pairs leggings that have a different type of leopard print in them. Oh dear.


8. Movies



Me and my mister are fanatic movie people, mostly we like to watch movies in our home since we have this 46 inch flat screen.. anyway we rent a lot of movies from different kind of genres. Now this might sound bad, but I'm a sucker for Nazi-movies.. Not because I would agree or anything with the whole nazi-idea but because usually those movies are the most touching ones, since they are really sad and you just think how horrobul things have been. My absolutely favourite movie from this genre is The Pianist, of course it's not a bad thing that my true love Adrian is in it, but it is also the most touching movie I have ever seen. Can not watch it without crying. (oh and the other thing about the movies about nazis and why I like the flicks, is the ladies with their perfect hair and outfits and oh!). Another good movie about nazis is a film from Netherlands called Black Book (Zwartboek), I highly recommend!

9. Zombies


Me as Molly Monster and Miss Ruth Less on Halloween 2009

This one goes along quite well with that whole movie-theme since I do like my splatter zombie movies, but I am a true fan of zombies, I think they are the coolest bad guys there are! Forget about the way too handsome vampires and the boring werewolves, Zombies are the answer, yay!

10. My babe



Yes we are retards and he is the right retard for me! 7 years of being retards together! (oh and now all of your thoughts of my glamourness have disappeared with this photo in your head.. eh).
