looking forward to summer

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

It’s always the same at this time of year. You are sitting freezing and thinking to yourself if it is remotely possible that you could be in a bikini for Memorial Day in one weeks time. It is also a time of anticipation – thinking of all the fun summer plans you have cooked up.

I have a crazy busy summer planned – I am planning to spend Memorial day with my friends and family at the beach….but then the silliness really begins. Summer – people need to look tan, and many people are not able to get a tan – or have brain enough not to bake. However much magazines try and tell us it is cool to be pale and interesting, when summer comes around the majority of us would like a little glow. I mean I can appreciate the super pale esthetic – but, as a pale English person, I don’t really feel like it is cool to enforce the rest of NYC to bear witness to my luminous white thighs – god forbid I am in the mood to wear shorts…..but to each his own. White is lovely – but sometimes – in the interest of being able to wear the clothes you want, or parade around naked with a false sense of security – it is fun to turn to a spray tan. So – as a result – my days free to lounge around poolside are limmited.

I am also up to my ears in Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp (check out www.kittycavalier.com). Me and my girlfriend came up with a class that is part serious work out and part sexy, flirty burlesque. We are having a lot of fun with it and our classes at Chelsea Studios have been completely sold out. I have been having the best fun ever listening to songs and then thinking of dance routines. Right now I am obsessed with James Bond songs – I am totally living out all my James Bond Fantasies.

I am very focused on my own dancing – and am hoping to go to some fun competitions this summer – all in different cities. It is a great way for my kids to see the country – and have fun being naughty in hotels across the USA. I love going to competitions and living out all my “Strictly Ballroom” fantasies. If anyone is in town July 4th weekend – there is a great competition in Brooklyn – that you can find by googling Manhattan Dancesport…..I think the big night is Saturday July 3rd – so you will be free to see the fireworks on JUly 4th.  Last year the competition was held at a hotel in downtown Brooklyn – I think a Marriott – and the other event taking place there was the International Little People’s convention – it was pretty unique as events go…..

I almost forgot to mention our leap into Boudoir photography. This has been really important and enjoyable for me. I am all about helping all women to feel a sense of their own sacredness and beauty – in a culture that tries to shove a limmited standard of beauty down our throats. The boudoir photography is a way to further this – a chance for everyone to take a picture of themselves that reflects their inner radiance. We are having so much fun getting ready for this and all my friends have loved modeling for the pictures on my website. I hope you will enjoy looking at them…better still I hope if you are interested you might come and have the pleasurable experience of being the subject of a piece of art yourself. Many people say it makes a great gift for a lover – but I think it is a gift for yourself.

Wishing you summer fun…..with love

That Jennifer Love-Hewitt has a lot to answer for. The whole world wants to be vajazelled. I have written quite a few “funny spray tan stories” blogs – but I could write a book about funny vajazelling stories. However – this post is not dedicated to that. 

One thing that surprised me – which is pretty stupid of me to be surprised by anything – is that men want to be vajazelled too. I mean – not exactly vajazzelled – but bedazelled – or should I say “P” dazzled. Last week a gentleman called and somehow or other I got put on the phone with him. He wanted his family crest of arms that included a rearing dragon and something else as a custom decoration. People are so creative.

So summer is gearing up to be super busy and super sprakley at Brazil Bronze.

I have been keeping myself very busy with lots of fun pursuits. As you know I love to dance and keep in shape – so I came up with a really fun idea for a new workout class. It is called Burlesque Bikini Bootcamp and I have started teaching it three times a week at Chelsea Studio. I have a great friend who is a burlesque perform who goes by the name of Kitty Cavalier – and of course I have to have a name too – so I am Chardonnay (there is a British tv show called “footballer’s wives” and one of the wives was called Chardonnay and I loved the name so much I wanted to christen my daughter with it – however my family put a damper on that – so it all worked out because the name was left over and free for me to use!) The workout is totally juicy. It is a little showgirl and retro in its style and music – but it combines regular aerobics, strength training, ballet, yoga, plyometrics – and then there is a 25 minute section where we learn a little burlesque dance routine together. We encourage the participants to try to dress a little sexy for class – or at least slap on some lipstick. If you want to try the class go to www.kittycavalier.com to register.

This past weekend I was at a ballroom dancing competition in Philadelphia. It was a lot of fun. However – the people at Amtrak are a bunch of crooks. They tried to charge me $597 to travel from NYC to Philly one way.  A couple of weeks ago we went to a competition in Costa Rica and spent less money than going for one day to Philly….but hell it was fun. When I showed my friends the dvd of the comp they were totally impressed because I was making really good faces – which I never did before. I may not be a good dancer – but at least I have started to make really good faces…..!!

Boudoir photography…coming soon!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Anyone who knows me knows that one of my main passions in life is my ladies dance group, lovingly known as “the Pocoho’s” (because we give our performances in the Pocono mountains). We choose songs and create elaborate showgirl numbers with lavish costumes, hair and make-up. One of my passions of life is having women of every age and size feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin – having people celebrate themselves and make the best of themselves. Hell – I am trying to do that with myself every day.

Our dance group has grown in its size and scope – and one of the things that kind of evolved from it was that before and after the performances we would stage lavish photo shoots. I learned that my friends loved to be given permission to present themselves as a little bit sexy – but in a sweet classy way. At first people pretend to be a little bit shy – but at the end of the day everyone loves having gorgeous pictures of themselves – and it really helps when someone else takes control and gives permission and sets safe parameters – for example telling you what to wear, or not wear – suggesting poses that really make you look your best – and then the main ingredient – working with a photographer who loves women and sees what is beautiful. As luck would have it we have two amazing photographers in our group.

My non-dancing friends started to see the post performance photos and started asking me how they could get such lovingly taken pictures of themselves. So – I gave it some thought and decided that I would start to organize these photography sessions for my friends.

So this is my opinion of what a boudoir photo is:  a beautiful picture where the photographer SEES the sensual, beautiful side of a woman. This is not a centerfold. The picture is usually sexy, maybe lingerie – maybe props such as a feather boa, fans, stockings, heels, gloves, pearls – the idea is more to suggest something than to show it. The girl can be very covered, or not, depending on her vision – but she needs to be relaxed and feel good and be able to flirt and play a little with the camera.

So – we have been having a lot of fun with this. A really gorgeous picture can give you a whole new sense of self confidence. Lots of people who I know to be pretty hard on themselves have seen their shots and started to see the beginning of their own possibilities. It’s like someone else sees something pretty in you – and you have no choice but to put down your resistance and understand at your very core that you are not completely a lost cause. A boudoir shot is a great gift to give a lover – but a magnificent gift to give yourself. Pretty soon I will post some of the adorable picks on  the website. Don’t be shy – maybe this is the summer to step into your power but being brave enough to acknowledge your own beauty ;-)….Sally
