Dolly on Vacay!!

Well hunnies, it’s been a very busy year so far and it’s time I took a little break.  For the month of August I’ll be hitting the pause button and won’t be doing any blog updates.  If you’re missing me, don’t fret!  I will continue to update you on my life on my personal Instagram and on the Dolly Shots Instagram too!

Enjoy the summer sun and I’ll see you in September with lots of new content!!

It’s a little hazy in here today…

I recently dug up this incredible vintage t-shirt that belonged to my mom back in the day and somehow squeezed into it for this fun photoset! Here in Canada we are currently working towards legalizing marijuana for real and it’s pretty amazing to think about how far we have come on this issue, but we still have much further to go. More on that in October!

2017: A Mixed Bag of a Year

2017 was a very strange year.  There were lots of fun, happy memories but also a lot of very trying moments.

This year I travelled quite a lot to Montreal and New York City and also added Freeport, Bahamas to my travel list.  I performed once again as part of the Toronto Burlesque Festival, at Toronto Pride, at Yeti Con, for the Ladies of Burlesque at the Royal, and in all 3 of the Peepshow TO productions.   I had the pleasure of seeing the musical Hamilton twice in New York City.  I went to Drag Con NY, the Bagel Burlesque Expo, Yeti Con and Fan Expo.  I got a new tattoo from Genevieve FT.  And I got to see two of my favourite people get married in a Jewish/Indian/Lord of the Rings wedding!

All in all this year has really taught me who the important people are in my life and to cherish those relationships.  I’ve worked really hard this year to accomplish my goals but I know this is only the beginning.  Look out 2018, I’m coming for you!!

Photoshoot for Your Big Sister’s Closet

I had the absolute pleasure of shooting a photo set for Your Big Sister’s Closet with the lovely photographer Rebecca Northcott.  Accompanied by Irene Kavita, Alex Giamas and Karen Ward we shot these amazing photos in High Park.  If you haven’t yet, I highly recommend checking out Your Big Sister’s Closet!  They have amazing plus size options for any age that are stylish, fun and very well made.
