Tattooed Ladies

Posted 25th July, 2010 by

Hello lovelies! Long time no chat!  I am very sorry!  Things have been quite a lot more insane than I originally expected.  This is the first time I have stopped since I got home 2 weeks ago.  The only reason I have time right now is that my body has finally given up and I am rather ill.  I literally had to force myself out... • read more •

I Heart Critters

Posted 4th July, 2010 by

These little guys are my very favourite thing about the USA.  Everyone here is so blahsay about them but how can you not get excited every time you see these critters with their cute little faces and bushy tails.  SO ADORABLE!!!  I literally made Mr A pull over when I saw my first squirrel running across the road in residential Portland.  I must have looked crazy... • read more •

Competitive Inspiration

Posted 29th June, 2010 by

Some of the Sugar Blue ladies (myself included) are going to be competing in the upcoming Miss Burlesque Australia pageant.  There are also other breathtaking Perth Burly-Q lovelies performing, including Ginger La Minge and Lola Cherry Cola, who are favourites of mine.  The Perth heat is on the 18th of July at the fabulous Fremantle Town Hall.  I can promise you this is a show not to... • read more •

The Emerald City

Posted 26th June, 2010 by

Hello lovelies!  Sorry for the lack of postings.  I am still having MAJOR computer issues. So anyhoo, I am in the States!  And loving it!  First stop was Seattle.  Well, actually it was LAX.  I had a giant glass of wine in the hopes it would make me sleepy.  It didn’t.  I was awake for like 40 hours or something ridiculous. Seriously a long long flight. ... • read more •

My goodness!  It has been a while since we spoke hasn’t it my dears?  Well I am safe and sound in the Americas.  I have seen many places and eaten many things.  I was supposed to be telling you all about it, keeping you up to date with my travels.  But I have been consistently thwarted but an evil arch nemesis.  He does not like... • read more •

Do You Hula Hoop?

Posted 5th June, 2010 by

‘Cause I sure do!!  Here is the routine from the Vegas show that I may have mentioned (I did a four split, did I mention that already?).  Words cannot describe how ecstatic I am with how the routine came out! When that 4th hoop dropped into the split, I almost screamed with happiness.  I have been working so hard to get that move.  So so... • read more •

I Dream of Zelda

Posted 3rd June, 2010 by

I am not one to buy magazines.  I have three or four that I read on a regular basis but I can’t abide with buying every fashion magazine out there.  I will only ever buy Vogue and the such like if there is a particularly good editorial (like this stunning Tim Walker shoot in British Vogue.  I have so much love for this issue).  I just find they... • read more •

Itty Bitty Ladies.

Posted 3rd June, 2010 by

I just love seeing other burlesque artists perform but I so rarely get the chance.  Whenever something is on, I always have other commitments or gigs of my own to perform at.  *Le Sigh*.  I usually just have to look at clips and things on the internets.  It’s just always so inspiring and interesting to see other peoples style and individual take on burlesque. Cherry... • read more •

Leaving on a Jet Plane!

Posted 2nd June, 2010 by

Hello lovelies!  Just a quick little note to let you know I am off on a holiday to the good ol’ US for a few weeks with the lovely Mr A.  I am so looking forward to it!  I am hitting Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, LA, Las Vegas, Boston and New York (for July 4th!).  I am also being treated to a massive Americana... • read more •

Sugar Sugar (do do do do do do)

Posted 1st June, 2010 by

Im not named Clara Cupcakes for nothing you know.  Baking cupcakes is pretty much part of my DNA.  In fact, if you cut me open I wouldn’t be surprised if I bled pink buttercream icing.  I just bake them for friends, fun and the Retro Market.  Because cupcakes are all about sharing.  In that cupcakey spirit, I’d like to share some of my favourite recipes with... • read more •
