2016: A Slightly Less Fabulous Year

2016 was a really hard year for everyone.  It certainly wasn’t a year I will look back on fondly for many reasons.  However, as I sifted through the photos for this post, there were many moments of laughter and fun sprinkled throughout.  I always like to look on the bright side and so despite everything we’ve been through, here are some happy memories and pictures from 2016.

This year I traveled to New York, Montreal and Mexico!  I had a wonderful time modelling for Raezor Latex and participating with them in Montreal Fetish Weekend.  I performed in four spectacular Peepshow TO productions, three of which involved choreographing brand new group/duet routines with some of the most amazing Nerdlesque performers I know.  I met my personal fashion inspiration Dita Von Teese!  I got three new tattoos, including one that I got with my mom of the two of us as matryoshka dolls.  I further developed my portfolio as a model and as a photographer.  I made three wedding dresses and got to see two of my best friends marry each other!

I guess this year wasn’t so bad after all.  Here’s to an even better 2017!  Happy New Year!
