I have had the immense pleasure of teaching some amazing, inspiring, talented and down right hilarious ladies since I started Bambina Burlesque Academy in 2014 and the wonderful Verity Johnson is one of them! 

I felt very humbled to hear that she'd informed over 300,000 people on Newshub that learning burlesque through Bambina Burlesque Academy was the highlight of her year. She's completed both my Bambina Bumpers and Grinders courses, as well as done some private tuition with me. Like a lot of my burly babies, I've become firm friends with her, and I've had the utmost pleasure of helping Verity discover her inner burlesque diva.

I'll be posting fortnightly on a Thursday morning from early Jan - so keep looking out for my posts m'dears!

Next on the blog (and first for 2018!): The Difference Between Character vs. Persona.

...burlesque has been an amazing source of of adrenaline soaked, sparkly, screamingly funny self confidence. Yes it was the highlight. And yes, 10/10 would do again.

My First Online Makeup Review - Mary Kay Cosmetics

There's a first time for everything, and here's a first for me! 

I was asked by Mary Kay Cosmetics consultant Dorin Chan to give a makeup review, creating a full face of burlesque-style makeup, using only Mary Kay Cosmetics. So I did! 

I am honest in this review and I am 100% behind this brand. I really loved it. Buzzword for the video is the word "Creamy" - haha! The texture of the Mary Kay Products is so deliciously creamy and smooth like butter. 

My favorite products would have to be the CC Cream (which is now my staple foundation) plus the foundation primer and mascara.
