Love thyself

I´m on vacation from my daily teachers job, which is great but by no means does that mean I have no work! :)
I was reading this great thing yesterday on body image and I want to share it with all of you because really, folks: we have this one vessel we are living in and we really ought to learn to love it better. As I say. it´s taken me a long time to be alright about my body. It´s not a Mercdes but I´m doing fine with a Lada. The Skin Deep-article can be found here!

"Fuck perfection. Fuck whatever society’s image of “beauty” is and embrace what you have got. Be grateful for your health, not your bikini bridge. Find people who love you for all your wiggly, out-of-proportion bits. Wear your heart on your sleeve and your differences with pride."

Sinsational Spring Awakening

What a glorious, sunny morning! I´m totally bummed about the Nordic Light-festival getting cancelled but a performance-free weekend does give me a chance to catch up on paperwork, both burlesque and non-, and get those never-ending chores at the farmhouse done. I´m just feeling kinda lazy and would just like to get outside and enjoy the sun!
Pirates Pleasures last Thursday was excellent, thank you everyone involved! Tonight The Shimmering Sheilas are organizing their Lavaklubi-burlesque club so if you´re in Hellsinki be sure to see it!
I will be on stage next weekend at the Sinsational Spring Awakening at Wäiski. It´s a small space so be sure to buy those tickets in advance! The unbelievable Queen of the Quake: Kitten De Ville will be there all the way from Los Angeles <3

Nordic Lights Burlesque


I´ve been planning the classes I will sub for Tinker Bell at the end of this month and -boy! oh boy! they will be sweaty so look out you bootycampers (among others)! I´ve had so much FUN putting the playlists´ together! :D

But before we get that far there is the ALL SCANDINAVIAN burlesque festival upon us! Håll i hattarna! The Nordic Lights Burlesque Festival is 15-16th of May (the same time as the Vienna Boylesque Festival: all my love to Sir Willy Waterlily and the rest of the fantastic performers out there <3  -LOVE YOU!)
I´ll be taking the flight with Pepper Sparkles and Miss Acrolicious (who brought her acro mat to our house already today on her way to the Sticky Nipples Revue in Tallinn!) -and we promise to bring the house down in Östersund with the help of some seriously awesome crew next week!!!! If you´re over there do NOT miss this! More info here!
Have a splendid weekend!

EDIT 16.05.2015: The festival was cancelled by the producers due to bad tickets sales. We got the information last Monday and were, of course, both shocked and saddened that this did not happen. I hope Nordic Light Festival will be able to put together a show sometime in the future!
