Hi Friends!

Friday was such a great day! This is the first time since 2008 that I’ve headed out of town and haven’t packed my pastie tape to the the stage. I’m on vacation in Vegas with my burlesque community from all over the world! It’s a very different and wonderful feeling being here and not performing – the most relaxed I’ve been at BHoF in years and I’m so happy and grateful to be here!

The Titans of Tease Reunion Showcase was one of the best yet! We laugh, we cried, and there was so much love and positive energy in the room and on that stage!
