Backstage burlesque

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

I have been very busy getting ready for a flurry of shows. A very special friend of mine recently got sick. This guy works at Chelsea Studios, and he is one of those people you are sure just has to be discovered at any moment. Tall, extremely handsome and funnier than anyone you know – AND an awesome dancer. We had been talking for a while about creating a class similar to Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp – but for the gay community. An exercise class, with fabulous dancing – but really about creating self-esteem. Sadly – before we got to do it – poor Peter is in the hospital with Lymphoma.

Me and Pink Champagne were shocked – the only thing we could think to do was make a fund raiser. We have a lovely friend who runs the Paper Dolls Burlesque cabaret – and she jumped in to help us. She is a very experienced producer and expediter. Kiki is gorgeous – here she is in the flyer with us

Pink Champagne, Kiki and me

Kiki found us a great space at the club Don Hills and secured the date of February 25th. We asked all of our burlesque friends to leap into action and so many really thrilling performers are set to appear. Kiki does an amazing baton twirling number, my Pink Chardonnays are doing Elvis, we have Kitty Cavalier who is probably my favourite performer of all, Omayra – who is the most sexy, delicious singer – and the incomparable Dame Lori is MC. One of the highlites of the night is that I am throwing together a male cabaret version of “The Full Monty” – my husband and friend Robert are the reluctant stars. I have a feeling they will have a blast when they get on stage. The really sad thing is that Peter was supposed to be the star when I first dreamed of doing “Full Monty”… I am dreaming of the day when we are all on stage dancing together.

I have been spending quite a lot of time online researching strip off-able pants – for guys. It is quite an education. I can’t wait for them to arrive to make sure we can actually make them work. The devil is in the details…as they say.

If you are in town on February 25th please come out and see us at Don Hills. And please can you say a prayer and send love out into the universe for my friend Peter…prayers can really help.

Our new tans are written up in New York Times!

How exciting!!

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/20/fashion/20SPOTS.html?_r=1

We are celebrating our 10th year of spray tanning – and, being the snowiest, pale girl on the block I am still consumed with concocting the perfect fake tan. This year  we have come out with some REALLY cutting edge new products. The express tan – where you only need to wait two hours before showering, the MEGA MOISTURIZING formula with hyaluronic acid, that holds 1000 X its’ own weight in water (to keep the skin super hydrated), and also containing ingredients that promote deep collagen production, and our super pure organic formula. Many companies are kidding you with 85% organic  – ours is 95% – the highest grade you can get, and kept refrigerated.

We are so happy that the New York Times wrote about our Luxury Spray Mist for at home use and all the new in-salon services.

Come in and try something new soon. It’s one way to cheer yourself up in a blizzard.

A January Surprise

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I came home from work on Friday and found a brown envelope had arrived from England. I knew it was from my aunt and it was a package that was supposed to arrive before Christmas – we had requested a baking tray to bake mince pies, because you can’t buy a baking pan that is the correct depth on this side of the pond. I didn’t have much urgency to open the package as Christmas has been and gone and there will be no mince pie baking until next December.

I went to visit my father and he opened the package. Yes – the mince pie tray, two presents for my daughters and a brown envelope marked “more family stuff”.

All I can say is that if I had known the contents of the envelope I would not have sent them willy nilly in the regular mail. The contents were worthy of travelling to England on the Queen Mary – and being carried back on a purple velvet cushion.

I noticed a tear in my father’s eye and asked him what was. He was reading a wire that had been sent to his father (when his father was in the army in WW II) saying that my grandmother had gone into labor and that my father had been born.

He passed me the envelope and I sat in rapt attention for about an hour staring at the contents. I opened one musty envelope after the other. In one was a tiny thick piece of paper on Buckingham Palace stationary – saying “The Queen and I are deeply sorry for your loss….and hoping that my grandmother could find some comfort in the nations gratitude for a life so nobly given (I paraphrase)” It was signed in ink “George RI”

The next letter was even more shocking. Several pages of perfect Airmail paper, handwritten in ink – from someone in the Yorks and Lancs regiment – giving condolences to my grandmother and describing to her the specific circumstances of her husband’s death.

“Captain Bradshaw was badly hit and Leuitenant Blenkey (my father’s father) went to help him and a bomb went off. Captain Bradshaw’s body was never recovered but Leuitenant Blenkey was taken and buried.” In the envelope were tiny photos of a little wooden cross – his name was miss-spelled 

“Blenkley”.

I was shaking as I read this – and I could hardly imagine how all of this must have been to my grandmother Jane so many years ago – probably reading this stuff with a little baby in her arms.

Then there were more amazing pictures of my mother and father on honey moon with pigeons sitting on their head in Trafalgar square – and my grandmother in later life with a cat I had loved very much and my old dog (now deceased) when he was a tiny pup. My aunt as a little girl – my great, great grandfather – a very fabulous looking chap -in some kind of military ensemble from WWI.

Then came letters that my father had written home when he was a little boy in boarding school – asking for her to send stuff – and drawing a picture of his best friend who he said was one inch high. I will not mention this gentleman’s name in case he is still alive…

I thought to myself that if you were making a screen play you actually couldn’t invent this stuff. 

2010 was a painful year for my family. Many losses. My mother, my husband’s mother, my amazing step grandfather – who married my grandmother when my dad was small – and was amazing to him – and to all of us. This envelope was like a kaleidoscope of life – a testament to human resilience. I thought to myself that I have the best family – all the hard things that have happened – and always picking themselves up with kindness and a good sense of humour – and love for all the new babies, new cats and dogs.

I plan to scan all of these papers and keep them real safe – so that one day when the time is right, my little girls can sit down and read all this stuff. I also want to really sit down with my aunt and have her tell me everything she remembers about all my Welsh relatives – so I can write it down and have it to pass on and hold sacred.

I feel like a tiny grain of sand in an egg-timer.

Let’s make 2011 count for something. It’s all in the little kindnesses we choose to put into every day.
