Naughty Blogger

What a naughty blogger I have been! I haven’t blogged in weeks and it’s not even that nothing interesting has happened. It’s just plain laziness. Well, let me make in up to you in a montage form.

On the 10th we had out work Christmas dinner. It was the second that I have attended since working for Hostel. I finally got to show off my wonderful Boyfriend in his dapper best and get a free feed. He got a moustache in his Christmas cracker that he gave to me (as it would be lost amongst his beard).

On the 16th of December I had my Burlesque Graduation show (I had been taking a 6 week course). I was holding off posting about it until I had some photos to show but the photos that I was waiting for didn't come out the way I had hoped neither did the photos by the professional who snapped a few before the show.

I have never taken a dance class before so I found it quite tricky but most enjoyable at the end. I plan to take the advanced course to one day achieve my dream of being a Burlesque Queen.
Photo above is of the five girls in my class taken by Sugar Blue's resident photographer David Wooley. (I know its extremely tack to post the proof but I can afford the print.)

On the 19th I got a text message from my house mate asking me to call A'dora Derriere (the organiser of Sugar Blue Burlesque) to help out that evening for the show ‘Burlesque Banquet’. She had asked my house mate, who is doing the advance course, to help but she had work so she recommended me. It was a little tricky getting home from work then getting to the venue in Fremantle but it was well worth it. I had a blast. My job was basically what I do for Perth Roller Derby, which is dressing up in a cute costume and walking around with a cigarette tray bulling people but instead of selling key rings and buttons I was handing out lollies.

I wish I got some photos of what I wore (the white polka dot wiggle dress from this post) and of the show but I was so busy handing out lollies and perving on the sexy ladies of Sugar Blue that I forgot. Drats.

On the 25th was my boy friends birthday. Happy Birthday, Fanny! My house mate and I snuck into the kitchen and hung a big shiny happy birthday banner. In the morning we had waffles and opened presents.
After breakfast I met his mum, brothers and spike the bull dog (you can become a fan of spike the bulldog on facebook). They were all very lovely and gave me some chocolates.

And some to come; my house mate will be having her Advanced Burlesque Grad Show and off course I’ll be there to cheer her on. The theme is Sideshow Starlets so a good friend of mine and I are going dressed as Siamese twins. Stay tuned for that amazing costume!


  1. My, you and Rori are a pair of Sexy Ladies. I am so sad I missed it. I had an outfit picked out and everything. Oh well, you'll have to do the advanced class now so I can watch THAT graduation show :P
    I am a fan of Spike th Bulldog on facebook. He is a pretty cool Bulldog, as far as bulldogs go.
    It sounds like you've been busy Missy! I have so many ideas for dresses when I get back. I am definately going to need to borrow some of your patterns. *nods*

  2. You and your boyfriend look extremely dapper. The moustache looks fabulous. I gave you the Kreativ Blogger Award over at my blog.

  3. COme back we miss u!

    How cool that you did a burlesque class, and thats kind of messed up they make you pay for the photos like that.


  4. Heeyyy! Thanks for the lovely comment! I see you're also from Perth! hehe I went to see Dialogues of the Carmelites. I was thinking when I saw it how boring it must have been to design/make the costumes!
