It’s Hump Day and I’m ready to rock your world with more Glitter Alien looks…
I am so grateful to our amazing team for this photoshoot. First of all, our incredible photographer, Jonathan Choi, who made this vision a reality. None of this could have happened without the fantastic Katherine Bermudo. And of course our amazing assistants, Rachel and Khristianina!
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!
2015 was a spectacular year for me! I went to New York City, Orlando, Montreal and Detroit. I performed in the Girlesque Expo, the Toronto Burlesque Festival and Pride Toronto. I got three new tattoos including a BFF tattoo with Betty Quirk. I watched one of my best friends get married. I launched Dolly Shots Photography. But most importantly I had a blast doing all these things with my fabulous friends.
The theme of this year for me was Girl Power! I continue to surround myself with the smartest, funniest and coolest group of gals who are constantly inspiring me. They are loving and supportive and always there to give advice, encouragement or share a cute cat photo! I feel so lucky and blessed to have these women in my life.
I have big plans ahead for next year! Stay tuned for more fabulousness in 2016!
I had been planning on getting this tattoo for a very long time and finally the time seemed right and things fell into place with my artist. The amazingly talented Suspiria recently returned to Toronto and her style was exactly what I was looking for. I sat through 4 hours of tattooing on Sunday and got the outline and part of the colour done. It will probably be at least another 4 hours before this baby is done. Here are some shots of me getting tattooed and how my tat is looking so far…
