Hey everyone!

Just taking a break from moving into my new place here in Vegas. FINALLY, I can FULLY settle in to Las Vegas residency! There is plenty of room here, which means I will be setting up my sewing room soon AND it will have a little corner for me to film my YouTube videos in! So look forward to that.



Before I get off subject, I just wanted to tell you that on Wednesday, July 30th, 2014 at 6pm (Pacific time) to head on over to BruceRADEL.com and tune in to hear all about taking it off. I will be joining Richardo Montalbum and Sweetie Bird (Brazil) on the internet radio program as we talk about my next show here in Las Vegas, Brunchlesque! and Burlesque in general.

Also, if you are currently in Las Vegas or will be on August 10th, 2014 -- come on out to Brunchlesque where you can get breakfast and Burlesque! Make sure you get your discounted advance tickets at Brown Paper Tickets. They will be going to full price soon!  I will be posting about Brunchlesque in another post.

In the mean time -- make sure you tune into The Bruce RADEL Show and if you have any questions about Burlesque or about me in general give the show a call and ask away! No question is off limits! You will find the phone number on the Bruce Radel website linked above. I would love to answer all your questions and if all goes well (and I seem to get a lot of inquiries) perhaps I will be invited back for another interview just by myself!

Carrot Top at Luxor and Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

Click on any picture to enlarge


This weekend my best friend, Amy from Duluth, MN came out to visit with her brother and sister in law. I always enjoy seeing Amy -- *even when we aren't at an Isaak show -- because we can be friends beyond Isaak*

Carrot Top at Luxor

The first night out the four of us caught Carrot Top's show at Luxor. Now I know what you are all thinking -- Really? Carrot Top? Yes, Carrot Top! I thought the same as everyone else. I had the same expectations of who Carrot Top was/is from a less than praised reputation and hear say alone. I expected his show to be stupid -- I mean it is Carrot Top, right? Wrong. I was wrong. Amy had said that she had seen his show before and really enjoyed it so I went in with an open mind. Let me tell you -- he puts on a great show! He was hilarious and not annoying. I unfairly expected him to be annoying. He was very personable and had a fun repertoire with his audience. This particular evening the front row was filled with about 10 guys from a bachelor party and it was fun seeing him engage with the sausagefest that was there. The show runs 1 1/2 hours, but breezed by. His show is the high paced bombardment of one line jokes and prop comedy, that you would expect from Carrot Top. Once I caught up to his energy and followed the rapid fire of jokes, I found that my smirk had turned into a full on smile and my chuckles turned into teary eyed laughter. It was however his finale that his showmanship came through. This is when he turned from comedian to entertainer. A montage of Rock Gods Glory. I don't want to give too much away so I shall leave it at that. Needless to say, I love true showmen and Carrot Top was a surprise for me. The biggest surprise however -- Carrot Top has a hot little body now! He buffed down and looks amazing! To sum up what to expect from his show -- it's light hearted and silly with a dash of dirty.  I recommend those in Vegas check out his show! My only disappointment is that I didn't opt to do the meet and greet and meet him!

Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay

The next day Amy and I spent the afternoon by ourselves. We went to Shark Reef in Mandalay Bay. We weren't expecting much, but we figured it was something to do that was near-by since I don't have a car to actually put us around. Shark Reef isn't a huge aquarium, but it was still a really fun time! It starts off with some smaller habitats for aquatic animals, like a crocodile and komodo dragon, and then moves into the inner water habitats. That is where the real fun begins -- little turns into BIG!


Amy and I were pleasantly delighted with how much we enjoyed the afternoon there. Seeing just how big some of these fish get is AMAZING! I didn't know how big sea turtles actually got! They were HUGE!




I believe Amy enjoyed the jellyfish and lion fish the most. I, however, am like a child when it comes to petting animals so my favourite part was being able to pet the stingrays and horseshoe crabs! *squee* If I could have pet the giant sea turtles I would have been in heaven!

 



While Shark Reef is one of the only family friendly places in Vegas -- we were a little bummed out that there were so many children and strollers there. We were hoping to enjoy the aquarium without the "joys" of the chillins of the world.


Over all, the Shark Reef was a very affordable way to enjoy a simple hour of your day in Las Vegas. A nice place to bring the kids -- IF you HAVE TO bring the kids to Vegas with you.



So until Amy visits again...

Lana Turner *inspired* faux bangs.


Last night I watched Ziegfeld Girl for the first time ever. What a movie!!! I am sad that I hadn’t watched it sooner! I was inspired by Lana Turner’s pin curled faux bangs and wanted to try to figure them out for myself. So last night I set them in a pattern I *thought* was how hers was set, but as you can see, I still need to figure out the correct pattern as my bangs don’t look the same. I think my bangs are good on their own, but I was just hoping for something a little bit closer. Ah well — it was my first time trying. Also, my sides were too long so I just let them fall were they wanted too on the top and it created waves not seen on Lana. I didn't even attempt to do the back the same way. My hair is too long and I don’t have the proper rat for the back roll. One last thing, I set my hair in the same direction as hers, but the photos were taken in the mirror so they are reversed. 

I tried.

My New Sun Top: My First Sewing Project of 2014

My vintage fabric and 1940s sun top pattern.


I just wanted to share a quick post with you today. This is my first sewing project of 2014!!!

Back when I was still living in Wisconsin, I had originally had this scrap of fabric that I was going to sell. I figured someone may want it cheap for some decorative detail or trim or something for a project. However, I pulled it out of the sale stash when I realized it would be just enough fabric to make a sun top! I never got around to making it when I was in Wisconsin, but I did have it with the intended pattern. And there it sat and waited, with puppy dog eyes to be made up. Unfortunately for the fabric and pattern, but fortunately for me, I had to pack up and move out west so it would be a little longer before it was made up.

Not very much fabric to work with!

Fast forward -- I am now in Las Vegas and it was one of the first projects I intended to make, so I pulled it out within the first 3 days of living here. Once again it looked at me with those puppy dog eyes, but I was just too busy to make it up. Now a month in to living here I finally had a few spare hours to whip it up!

Close up of print. Unsure of the era. Could be 40s, could be 60s. It is cotton though.

Late Monday I found out I was going to go out to a local tiki bar with some friends Tuesday night and I didn't have a thing to wear! (Girls, you know how that is.) For the past week, I have been enjoying very summery outfits including a top that I made YEARS ago with the same pattern from an old bed sheet. I figured now is the time to make up the top! So Tuesday afternoon I started on my sewing and 3 hours later I was done.

I took extra time to iron out the fabric and pattern and then iron the darts and seams and really take the correct time with this as I plan on wearing this top out a lot and wanted it as rightly done as my skill level could provide.

So here is the finished product! I hope you like!

Bathroom lighting sucks! Sorry for that -- and my boobs.

Thank you for stopping by this wee blog o' mine and reading! I hope you enjoyed!

Wearing it with a skirt I made up a few years ago. I wanted to make up a black skirt to match, but I ran out of time.

What summer outfits have you been sewing up??

Just for funzies -- Sunday I got to spend time with my best friend, Amy, who was visiting LV from Duluth, MN! I want her to come back!

Come back Amy!!!
