is it really 2012?

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Is 2012 really the end of the world? My birthdate this year is 01.21.12. It sounds very significant to me….has a very good ring to it. I am sure something is going to happen. Hopefully not the end of the world. But just in case, I am living by the wholesome mantra of making every day count.

At the end of last year I had been to see the New York Burlesque Festival @ BB Kings. The talent, cleverness and humor were amazing. I discovered that most of these talented people had performed earlier that summer at a contest in Vegas called “the Miss Exotic World Pageant.” As soon as we heard about it all of my friends decided that we REALLY wanted to go.

The new year dawned and I was on the phone with my burlesque partner Pink Champagne. We were plotting what would be fun songs for new numbers. We had an idea for a song, I won’t reveal what it is – but it involves wearing a swimsuit. I said “let’s do it – because it would be a cute idea for Miss Exotic World”. Pink Champagne was in no mood to put on a swimsuit in the middle of January and told me I was out of my mind. I begged her to just check the deadline for admissions to Miss Exotic World – and, shock, horror, drum roll….we discovered that you have to have a video submission of your entry by January 23rd. We sat in stunned silence….and then we started to get our brains going in high gear. What is a little deadline…action was what was called for. We hit the phone lines, sent out emails, and found that all of our girls, the hot and lovely Pink Chardonnays were ready for action.

Yesterday Pink Champagne and I slaved from dawn to dusk and came up with the new choreography. We marched around the garment district from House of Spandex to Spandex World to Stretch King and back. Corsets have been ordered, the glue guns are being warmed, feathers have been plucked from some poor yellow ostritch….late last night we gathered our ranks to start practicing in chelsea studios.

Of course we are all feeling quite fat after the holidays. We worry that if we take off the corsets it will be something akin to unleashing a large vat of marshmallow fluff. But doubt is for sissys. So our plan is to practice our dance as much as possible for the next two weeks, while simultaneously crafting our very complicated costumes – from gloves and feathers…. rhinestones galore. Then we will film it and send the submission in. I say ENJOY THE JOURNEY. I so hope we manage to make the cut. I can only imagine what hilarity we could have with such an amazing and fun loving group of women. But whatever happens, we are definitely having a blast right now. Before I was feeling kind of blah and January-ish – and now I feel creative, juiced and kicked into mega high gear. The Pink Chardonnays aren’t exactly like a knitting circle – or maybe they are – the main thing I get from this is being around postive, fun loving, people – who don’t take themselves too seriously.

Pink ChardonnaysThe kids are back in school. Work is kicking into high gear. Lots of fun projects for Valentine’s day – the salon is already getting booked up by people wanting vajazzling for the day of LOVE, boudoir photography is booked through the roof – gotta get your lover a gorgeous pick of your fine self. Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp is packed with people trying to redeem themselves after the holidays….and believe me – I am trying to redeem myself too. I was seasonally disaffected for three seconds after the holidays – but now I feel buzzing with life and with a sense of opportunity for the new year.

Start this January the way you mean to continue – find time to take care of yourself, to feed your soul and to pursue your passions. What if we are being transported off by martians later this year. Don’t leave yourself with any regrets….

Happy New Year

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Happy New Year. Another chilly January. The season of new beginnings and good intentions. I always think of these long dark months after the holidays as the thinking months. The time for ideas. I think of myself like a little seed curled up in the cold, dark mud, biding my time, growing, gathering energy, to launch in Spring. I don’t think I would really do well in a place that didn’t have the four distinct seasons.

We have a lot going on in the salon. We have two brand new products for home use. TanSXL and Coco Chacha – and we are busy doing everything to get the word out about them for the spring. Very exciting – we are about to launch our own line of sunscreens. Lots more to come about that soon.

In the mean time, wrap up warm, if you feel fat after the holiday excesses – don’t beat yourself up – get a spray tan and work with what you’ve got. We are so grateful to our customers who make every day fun for us – wishing everyone the best possible year. sxo

Fall

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

The last few weeks we have had so many perfect fall days. Crystal blue skies perfectly setting of the ruby, ochre and russet leaves. Warm enough that you could still wear something cute, that particular autumn smell, a little bit of smoke from woodfires, a little bit of dampness and chill. To me, Fall in New York is exciting. It is like everyone young and old has “back to school” fever – a new creative energy for all sorts of projects. Life gets back into a faster rhythm after the heat of summer.

The salon seems busier than ever. Life is busy and social – so many parties and events and everyone has to look good. Halloween brought a flurry of fabulous party goers. Every year Heidi Klum has a costume party for the rarified stratosphere of super celebrities. We sprayed Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas – she went as a mother from toddlers and tiaras. We used our new darker spray “Coco Cha Cha”.

Fergie I just got back from an amazing dance camp in the Dominican Republic. The camp was held at The Paradisus Palma Real resort and I totally recommend this place for a gorgeous relaxing get away. I went with my dancing friends – no husband and no kids, I can’t remember the last time I took a trip like that. I should definitely do it more often – it was totally good for my mental health, the perfect combination of studying latin dance, which is something I am really passionate about, and sun, sea, sand, friends and laughter. Oh – and quite a lot of the national beverage which is called Mama Juana – wine, rum, honey marinated with a bunch of roots in a bottle. All I know is we had a lot of it.

Now that everything is heating up in New York – my burlesque girls have been getting lots of opportunity to perform. We have been dancing all over at clubs and shows and parties. We were just at a really cool club 141 Chrystie Street. The place was totally packed. Upstairs they have these really amazing karaoke rooms. It’s funny, I am really not a club person. I love going to a club if I am doing a show and have something to do. I get a kick out of seeing night life from that perspective – and it is fun to get up and dance after a show, with a bunch of friends when you are happy and relaxed and the nights work is done…but I see all these people standing on line, on the wrong side of the velvet rope, and I just wouldn’t be up for that myself.

I am grateful for my double life as a Paper Dolls Dancer that I get to visit all these fun happening places – that other wise I would never stay up late enough to see, or might be rejected at the velvet rope for not having a good enough outfit.

My kids just had a week off of school and I really took the opportunity of the fabulous weather to do lots of super fun things. We saw “How to Succeed in Business” as my kids are super huge Daniel Radcliffe fans. It was amazing. The choreography is just so creative and so well executed. Daniel Radcliffe has this energy like a tightly wound piston – and to see how he uses that in his dancing is just crazy good. We also went to Museum of Modern Art, Tea and Sympathy for cream tea, and Dylan’s candy Bar

All in all we had a really good week, taking full advantage of no school. I have been running outside every day Рjust trying to take in the beauty of the fall, the soft colours, the beautiful air. I have a sense of the slight calm before the storm Рbecause in just a couple of weeks it will be hard not to be swept up in all the holiday  craziness. Get out there and enjoy yourself before it gets too cold.
