I truly believe life is more fun with a bit of glitter on top. Find what makes you feel glamorous and use it in your everyday life. I love red lipstick, putting glitter & rhinestones on everything (including my face), and clothes that make me feel as fabulous as a movie star from past times. I often dye my hair pink, just because it makes me happy when I look in the mirror. Glam before grey, any day of the week.
What I love most of all is to paint my face into perfection, put on a beautiful sparkling dress, & give a great show. I’m a showgirl and a performing artist. I’m an entrepreneur. I produce clubs and shows. I teach. I sing and dance and I’m grateful to say that I have found my way to earn money doing what I love most in life. It’s hard work, but it’s an amazing journey sprinkled with glitter and filled with all the amazing women & queers that’s helping and inspiring me along the way.
I’m also a loud feminist truly believing in women empowering ourselves and eachother, in whatever way suits oneself best. For me burlesque is about self-confidence, body positivity and freeing the female sexuality.
Find what makes you feel good about yourself, and use it in your everyday life.
And don’t forget to have fun with it!
