Support Your Local

I´ve been mermaided! If you want to give art as a present (it´s ALWAYS a good idea) how about comissioning the incredibly talented Johanna Laakkonen to make a mermaid portrait of someone special? You can find her on Instagram @johannalaakkonenart

I´m super happy about this portrait- she really captured my essence! P.S in my experience it pays off to give the artists free hands, it always comes back better than I had ever thought possible <3

Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender

Las Vegas.

I really don´t know how to accurately capture the trip we did, mine & hubby´s first, to the (in)famous Burlesque Hall of Fame weekender that started out at the goat farm in Helendale and was moved to Vegas later. I´ve heard the stories and seen the photos but it still was pretty surreal.

I want to thank the organizers, the LEGENDS (I got to take classes with Camille2000, Miss Toni Elling & Penny Starr Sr. -just amazing...) and congratulations to all the new royalty!

It was both inspirational and educaional seeing all the showcases: Thursdays Movers, Shakers & Innovators, Friday´s legends on stage in Titans of Tease (SO many feelings that night!!!) , Saturday-nights Tournament of Tease as well as Sundays Icons & Allstars. Thank you everyone for sharing your magic and special love to our Finnish Tangobatics for a f-n amazing show!

It´s been a pleasure meeting old friends and making some new ones, having drinks by the pool, getting to make a photo shoot in old Vegas (thanks Neil!) as well as just enjoying Vegas to the full.

It´s a hike to get there (from here...) but totally worth the trip <3  Here´s some snippets, jetlagged AF still but riding high on the memories. KIITOS our traveling buddies Miss Acrolicous & Handsom Stark- you´re the bees knees!

Lahti Pride and Summer vibes

I´m performing tonight at the Lahti Pride evening event at Seurahuone, join me & Dolly Poupee and other fabulous people - showtime is at 11pm!
Do notice that the event is discrimination free and a safe space (as every event everywhere should be)!

I´m also super stoked to be going to the Burlesque Hall of Fame, Las Vegas for the first time ever this year!!! Can´t WAIT to meet friends and make new ones, take some workshops by Legends and root for our travel companions & dear friends Miss Acrolicious & Handsome Stark (Tangobatics) who will be performing in the Best Small Group-category on Saturday!
Now all I have to do is survive the last week of my day job :)
