That Was The Week That Was

Well, that was a brilliantly busy, packed and fabulous week! So, I'll get right on it!

On Monday I was celebrating Taz's birthday after a lazy day and a bit of shopping in Camden Stables Market, we took ourselves off to the theatre for 'Spamalot' which was brilliant.


Tuesday was a very early start as the Cabarati assembled at Proud City for Caba-Revolution! Remember the Cabariot last year? Well this is essentially Cabariot II in response to the farcical London Festival of Cabaret that I blogged/ranted about several months ago.

Bumfaces; Double-Triple-Take

I love the London Cabaret scene for its sense of camaraderie and the fact that everyone is more than willing to pitch in, even at the risk of looking less than glamorous, to make a point or support a cause. So many people turned up to make the video, including Mister Meredith, Bunny Galore, Mat Ricardo (who took some fabulous photos and blogged about the day as well) Lili La Scala, The Boy With Tape On His Face, Craig The Incredible Hula Boy, Josephine Shaker and so many more! I can't wait to see the finished video!


That evening, I was super excited to be heading to the theatre again (twice in one week! Decadent!) to watch the glorious 'Top Hat' - I'd heard a lot of amazing things about this show and I was not disappointed!

Top Hat - possibly one of the best West End shows I've ever seen!

On Wednesday I was up at cock-o-clock in the morning again to schlep across to the other side of London for a 9am photoshoot - it was worth it though as I was working with the gorgeous Tigz Rice, shooting for Burlesque On Ice!

Fabulous Collaborations

That evening I hand-delivered a very special custom order from my Etsy shop; I love making requests as it is so much more personal and I was honoured to be asked for these beautiful little hair clips.

Then I was back at Proud Cabaret for a lovely little show for a bonkers little audience and it was great fun to hang out with the gorgeous Bettsie Bon Bon and have a good old catch up.

Thursday was a much needed night off for me as I definitely felt like I was coming down with something; and was unfortunately proved right as I could hardly stop coughing all day on Friday which made that evenings show at Privee of Knightsbridge a bit touch-and-go while I was singing! Fortunately the gorgeous Tami and Samantha were on hand and the show went wonderfully.

The final push of the week came on Saturday when I returned to Proud Cabaret for a truly bonkers show as it was compere Joe Morose's birthday.

It was lovely to have friends from Burlesque On Ice in the audience as well, along with the gorgeous Glorian Gray who came to visit for the weekend. Oh, and we couldn't let Joe's birthday pass without mention...

Birthday Surprise!

After such a hectic week it was lovely to sit and relax with Glorian Gray having a gossip and drinking wine - we also took the chance to go skating as well as I haven't been able to get there all week and TICKETS ARE ON SALE!! So all in all, a rather busy but perfectly lovely week!
