Is This The Real Life? Is This Just Fantasy?

Crikey, where does the time go? I can't believe it's been nearly two months since my last blog!!

In my defence, I have been writing a blog, just not here: I've started back at university! And the assessments are done in the form of a blog so I've been working a lot on that. As previously mentioned I also have a 'real' job now as well so that's obviously been taking up a lot of time. It's fun though!

However, the beauty of this now is that I can pop back and forth between my real life and my cabaret life, as I have been for the last month or so - so here we go!

I've been Rocking The Kaff Bar in Brixton a couple of times: it's the most bonkers fun show and we always have a laugh - imagine a big kids party for drunk adults and you're half way there: sparklers, face paint, sausage rolls and a big curly wig all feature and it is the greatest night ever!

Joe Morose is a Gladiator, doncha know...

I've also been back at Proud Cabaret a couple of times: I launched a new act (Ocean Under The Moon) and was honoured to attend their birthday party at the beginning of the month...

Loving the headdress!

This. This was why it all went wrong...

Speaking of Proud Cabaret, it is where I met my lovely man, and he finally moved on from the venue after four years! We obviously had to go out for drinks to celebrate!

With Helen Orford, Joe Morose, Ruby Deshabille, Jasz Vegas, Ronnie Roberts, Ben Carpenter and Jamie Moon!

 And last, but by no means least, I've been back at The House of Magic with the family!


With Yvonne, Abby and Simon!

In lovely-day-out news, I went with a group of the cabaret family to watch 'Briefs' at the London Wonderground, and it was fabulous fun! I also attended 'High Societease' at the gorgeous Kettner's where Chastity Belt and I enjoyed high tea while watching a lovely show!

I've also cut my hair (fringe!), been bought a onesie, started growing a chilli plant, seen a meerkat dressed as Dolly Parton, bought a vintage writing desk and got the cats to help me out with Uni coursework...




And there you have it - the month (or so) in a nutshell!
